It wasn't that Ben and Ender didn't trust Fandom, but for the first weekend of their daughter's life, they weren't wild about being on an island with a history of weird weekends.

They'd just met her. They didn't want to re-meet her as a pony or a 20 year old or during a rain of tuna. After Ender's class, they'd headed to Naboo and then called Ben's father, who'd had much better Portalocity luck then they'd had (or, as Ben privately suspected, the name "Grand Master Skywalker" had a little more pull than regular old Ben Skywalker did).

He was arriving in a few minutes, and Ben was looking down at his tiny daughter in her portable crib and smiling. "He's going to love you," he murmured.

[OOC: For two!]

Ender smiled. He couldn't quite stop fidgeting over the baby, pulling up blankets a little or wagging his fingers in an attempt to get her attention. "Of course he is," he said, "You're perfect."

Ender smiled up at him. "I'll take that risk," he deadpanned.

"Love you too," Ender murmured, and kissed him back.

Then he pulled away. "...And I hear his skimmer. I'll go play welcome committee."

"If you can let her out of your sight," Ender teased, picking the baby up gently.

"By having your appetite and a stomach smaller than a baseball," Ender said wryly.

He held the baby close. Then he walked out of the room and down the hall to go meet Luke.

"Anyone home?" Luke was calling softly as he shut the door behind him.

"We're here," Ender called, turning the corner and giving a little wave with one of his baby-supporting hands.

Luke's face broke into a smile of pure delight. "I'd forgotten how little they are."

"She's a tiny, tiny baby with an enormous stomach," Ender said wryly, walking the rest of the way up to Luke. "Say hi to your grandfather, Val."

Val couldn't get much further than 'burble SHRIEK', but close enough.

"Hello, Val," Luke whispered, holding out a finger. "You have Ben's stomach, apparently."

"She eats, she throws up, she eats some more, and then she sleeps," Ender said wryly, but he watched with genuine joy as Val flailed at the offered finger.

"Sounds exhausting," Luke murmured, smiling as Val gripped his finger. "Hello, beautiful girl," he added. "Welcome to the universe.'

Ender smiled. "Her name is Valentine Mara Skywalker," he said quietly, "Val the Younger, my sister calls her."

Luke's breath caught. "Oh," he said, sounding pained for just a second. "Mara."

"It was important to Ben," Ender said softly.

"Of course it was," Luke whispered, reaching up to rub at his eyes. "She would have loved meeting you. Both of you."

"I'm incredibly sad that I never met her," Ender said. He looked down at the baby, who had quieted. "And that she can't be here right now."

Luke nodded. "I'm sure she is too. The is a lovely remembrance, Andrew."

"I'm glad you agree with it," Ender said. He slid his fingers gently along Val's cheek. "And I am genuinely glad you're here to see her, at least. I hope she has a grandfather for many years to come."

So don't run yourself into the ground, Luke.

Luke gave him a rueful smile. "I'm slowing down," he promised. "Letting other people take the interesting assignments where they got shot at..."

"Good," Ender said. He smiled a little. "We'll be moving when we get back to Fandom. Ben built us a good ship. You should come stay with us for a while when we get to our next destination."
