This was... different. You really pulled from all of the existing books, didn't you? Heh. Well, it was an interesting read, if a bit confusing (your characters/situations may have been a bit out of place, with regards to a canon timeline).
Author's Response: I wrote this a long time ago for a challenge that basically gave me the obstacles and told me I had to find a way to get through them. But I hope you enjoyed it anyway.
