    All right, the index list in post #2 should now be up to date with everyone's stories. What an incredible bumper crop this challenge has yielded! I need to get up to date on reviewing these; it may take me a bit, but I fully intend to.

    One quick question for AzureAngel2: do I have everything of yours accurately listed in the index? Just wanting to make sure, since I know some of the individual stories in your series exist in multiple threads/versions, etc., and so everything can be listed correctly. Thanks! :)

    You certainly may!

    I have done a coin toss--and of the last two songs, you have received "The Wearing of the Green." This is a rebel song, a street ballad of the 1798 Irish Rebellion, when green was the colour of the United Irishmen; and apparently, it was a hanging offense (admittedly, this was in the time when one could hang for stealing a silk scarf) to wear the rebellious shamrock in one's hat.

    There are many versions of the lyrics. Here are a few.

    And a few videos:

    Oooh there's one song left . . . would you mind if I snatched it up? I had so much fun with my last entry, I'm ready to let the muse go again!

    The Foggy Dew, it looks like is unclaimed? :D

    I would not mind at all!

    You have claimed "The Foggy Dew." This is also a song of rebellion--this time, of the 1916 Easter Rising. (The same rebellion W.B. Yeats wrote of in his poem "Easter, 1916," and you will probably recognize his famous lines. "All changed, changed utterly:/A terrible beauty is born.")

    I wrapped up both Celtic challenges now, each containing 9 vignettes. One thread is for Orson Krennic and the other one for Sheev Palpatine.
