Fully realized bad batcher/older Omega my beloved
While commenting the last episode with a friend the concept of how an older Omega would look came up and my brain took a full 0,2 seconds to provide me with this concept. I think I will modify her armour/helmet later on but I NEEDED to draw her. I will add more details about how I came up with this concept on the next RB.

BAD BATCH EPISODE RANKING HALFWAY THROUGH SEASON GO
1: Aftermath (the cinematic pacing, KANAN AND DEPA BILLABA which, for the record, I [J] called MONTHS before the episode premiered, OMEGA, best hunter content, kaller is pretty, and tech is wonderful)
2: Reunion (okay not to be that guy but CAD BANE, the western music, crosshair getting melted, Bracca, TODO 360, but c’mon lets see tech talk about the war that would be fun, right?) 
3: Replacements (I see a crosshair trend here, OMEGA GETTING HER OWN ROOM, Project War Mantle, I wanna learn more about Rampart?? Somehow?) 
4: Battle Scars (BRACCCCCCCA, Rex, poor Wrecker, I now cry when I heard the words Mantell Mix, Omega’s theme while her and Wrecker talk at the end, amazing) 
5: Decommissioned (somehow I was HYPED to see the Martez sisters and the person in the cloak at the end was fun. It felt like a Clone Wars episode in the best way possible. Also Omega’s theme that plays as she fires her bow, amazing.) 
6: Cut and Run (CUT, man Saleucami is pretty, Omega seeing dirt, Hunter being a dad, love the chain code connection, love that Omega chooses for herself to go back and be a part of the Bad Batch) 
7: Cornered (Pantora is so, so pretty, FENNEC, and WOAH fennec’s music is so great, I would have loved to see more with Echo and the droids, feels like a missed opportunity for some character development)
8: Rampage (seeing the rancor was fun, Cid is an interesting character, Ord Mantell is cool, Omega gets her bow, but I wanna see more Hunter stuff with him coming to terms with being a mercenary etc.)

So...this week seems to be the time I smack together my loves of the Bad Batch and musical theater together in one package. I've got one piece with the title of a song from "Hamilton" about to be submitted to AO3, and another with the title of a song from "Six" in the works...after that, I just hope I have enough muse left to start in on the Hadestown AU.

Disobeying orders
Hunter x Neutral Reader 
On the last mission, you disobeyed a direct order from Hunter to maintain your position. You did it because your hunch was that if you didn’t react and you didn’t intervene, the mission would fail, and luckily you were right. The bad news is that Hunter got very angry and refused to talk to you when the mission was over.
Tumblr media
“I did what I thought was right, and the mission was a success!” you said to Tech.
“Technically it was a success by sheer luck. The chances that your actions had a positive impact on the mission were very low. I know because when you said what you were going to do, I made my calculations. The good news is that the mission was a success, the bad news is that Hunter seems dissatisfied, and very angry I must add”
“But our squad disobeys orders all the time, and we get in trouble many times”
“In this particular case it was not necessary to disobey orders. My calculations showed high chances of success in the same way, I would even say it was more than obvious that we were going to succeed”
“Your calculations aren’t always the reason we acted, Tech. And now Hunter hates me for what I did...”
“I doubt Hunter would hate you for disobeying him when he ordered you to hold your position. He’s just very angry, and I must congratulate you on being the first to make him angry like that.  My personal recommendation is that you stop insisting on talking to him, at least for a while”
You decided not to listen to Tech, even though he was the smartest and his recommendations were very useful. Luckily in the Marauder there was only Hunter, and he seemed to be very focused on the screen in front of him.
“Hunter?”
“You should be with Tech analyzing the information we get. Or will you disobey that order, too?” he wasn’t looking at you at all.
Yeah, Hunter was definitely mad at you, not just for the tone of his voice, but the way he talked to you.
“Hunter, I told you what I did was the right thing to do. Why are you getting mad anyway? Our squad has a reputation for breaking the rules and disobeying orders on many missions!”
“In this mission it was not necessary, do you hear me? It was very dangerous! I ordered you to keep the position and you disobeyed me"
“Hunter, I’m not going to apologize for what I did. While Tech’s calculations were correct, why would we risk? They were about to shoot Wrecker!”
“Crosshair was watching”
“Yeah, but I…”
“Just go with Tech, will you?”
You nod your head and get out of there. Hunter sighs and runs his hand across the right side of his face.
“I told you not to talk to him”, Tech said to you.
“Tech, I’m not in the mood...”
“Look, our hero is here. Did Hunter scold you for your stupidity?” Crosshair got into the conversation.
“Ah, Crosshair. You like making me feel like an idiot”
“Only when it’s necessary, and today you outdid yourself”
“Crosshair, shut up, please”
“Whatever the hero says” Crosshair laughs mockingly and leaves.
“Well, the only one who seems to agree with your actions is Wrecker. But it’s more than obvious, he likes unnecessary danger”, Tach said.
“Thank you, Tech. And I’m being sarcastic”
To your great surprise Hunter called you from the Marauder and you’re obviously going with him. You could see that he wasn’t as angry as before, you’d even say he was sorry for something.
“Hunter, I know I said before that I wasn’t going to apologize, but... You were right. I shouldn’t have risked. I just... almost ruined everything. I hope I didn’t disappoint you and…”
Hunter hugged you and you hugged him too. For a few moments you didn’t talk, you just felt the warmth of each other and surely he could feel your heart beating a lot. You could actually feel his heart was beating, too.
“I almost lost you today” he told you gently near your ear.
“I’m so sorry, Hunter…”
You separate a little from the hug for the two of you to put your foreheads together, and that feeling felt closer than a kiss.
“I know. And I’m sorry, too, for yelling at you. But the next time...”
You shut him up by kissing him on the mouth, and he’s obviously kissing you back. You were separated only by lack of air and joined your lips again in another kiss. There was no need for words.

One time, I told my bf that the bad batch tag is just filled with fanfics about Crosshair and I expressed shock because I would have suspected Hunter to be the main one to simp over and he just goes: "of course they're writing about him, he's a top!"

Problematic [Pt. 3]
The Bad Batch x Reader • Enemies to Lovers • She/Her pronouns • ANGST/SFW • Bounty Hunter!Reader
Requested by: Anon
Part(s): 1 2 •
“Where’s the device?” Obi Wan questions before growing even more confused as he witnessed Wrecker pull his brother’s armor off of his back taking the device out. “Ah, clever. Usually one would do that to draw its detection away”
“Wait. What do you mean?”
“I disconnected the device from its main firewall” Tech informs Obi-Wan as he took the device into his hand before carefully taking the mainframe off showing the circuit board.
“Y/N is one of the few bounty hunters we work with that knows a lot about the technology that keeps advancing. She knows that a certain detection device is built into the circuit board and can’t always be removed. So. Putting it in between Crosshair and his chest plate, she knew the extra noise of the rest of his gear attached to him, will block out its detection.” Obi-Wan knew more than Tech had thought of the general. But that didn’t ease any of their anxiety.
“So you’re telling me we are still being detected?”
“No, I believe the firewall you broke through got rid of the connection to the main security. As for this small trigger, it only triggered the security on the planet. Which I believe you took care of before reporting back…” Obi-Wan felt their anxieties as he was about to say something when they went into full panic mode. “Oh dear”
“WE JUST LEFT HER TO DIE ON THE FUCKING SNOW PLANET”
“THE DROIDS COULDVE TAKEN HER HOSTAGE BY NOW”
Echo and Wrecker continue to yell at each other as Crosshair quickly puts his gear back on.
“If we get back there in time we’ll most likely—“
“They would’ve left the planet by now. It also takes days to get back to Hoth—-“
“WE CANT LEAVE HER THERE TECH”
“I KNOW! But we have to be logi—-“
“DONT YOU DARE SAY LOGICAL. I CANT STAND IT WHEN YOU PUT NUMBERS TO IT”
“I WASNT GOING TO!”
Hunter watches as the four continue to argue with one another, trying to calm his nerves with the overload in his head. He couldn’t help it. He had to.
He really fucking had to let it out
“DONT YOU FUCKING GET IT. THIS IS THE UNIVERSE SMACKING US DOWN FOR NOT BEING HONEST WITH OURSELVES. THAT CRAZY BOUNTY HUNTER GOT UNDER OUR SKIN”
Obi-Wan listens to Hunter’s confession for them all as one of his troops approached him with information.
“SHE’S APART OF US EVEN IF SHE THINKS WE DONT WANT HER AROUND. WE NEED HER FUCKING AROUND BUT WE KEPT PUSHING HER AWAY BECAUSE WE CANT FUCKING ADMIT WE ALL LOVE THE DAMN GIRL.”
“Well. Wasn’t that…explosive” Obi-Wan interrupts watching all of their heated expressions grow.
Hunter’s tension relaxes when silence filled the small area in the hanger. He felt his cheeks burn, the tip of Tech’s ears flush as did Echo’s after that confession, Crosshair’s whole face turning red, and Wrecker’s cheeks burning.
The five try to cover it up even if they all are still experiencing the hidden truths in that confession.
“Before I leave to give our analysts this device, my colleague just informed me of a evac shuttle reporting in the atmosphere. Coming from Hoth” He states on his leave making them all scramble. “So uncivilized” he laughs to himself.
When the shuttle finally landed, the troopers taking care of their bounty hunter were about to carefully follow protocol. But of course Y/N wasn’t going to do such.
“Guys, gals, non-binary pals…I have arrived” Y/N states the second the ramp hit the floor but suddenly getting up wasn’t the smartest decision of hers. “Woah. Is the earth spinning or am I on a lazy susan”
“Ma’am we still haven’t taken note of all you’re injuries. It could be the blood loss you have succumbed.” One of them interrupts her thoughts as she walks down the ramp about to interject the check up when she fell forward unintentionally in Crosshair’s arms.
“Y/N”
“Haha…Crossy, since when did you get back?”
“Go find the annoying one from the 501st. I’m not having any other reg check you out” Crosshair yells at the troopers that came to her rescue as one went to take care of such while the other two help the marksman get the bounty hunter back on the gurney.
“What injuries has she sustained?” Tech came in quickly noticing her armor still on her. “You two have no training in evacuations do you? When checking someone for injures you need to remove their armor pieces and most likely the blacks underneath”
“Hey Techie no body gets to see me naked” Y/N pushes his hands off of her but he wasn’t listening as he took care of the armor leaving her blacks on of course.
“Is she going to be alright?” Wrecker’s worry filled voice immediately run through Y/N’s ears as she grabs Tech’s wrist making him stop.
“Let the one with medical training handle this Tech…”
“For once. I agree with her” Hunter interrupts helping them pull the gurney into the hanger completely then to the hall heading toward the medbay.
“Always a pleasure working with the Bad Ba—-Oh. It’s Y/N. Alright. Give some space. You’ll stay out here” Kix pushes the bad batch members holding the gurney off as he pulls her inside. “Get a surgery tray prepped and the on-call surgeon just in case” he barks his orders as the door close.
“If this…was how she came out of there. What kind of injuries would we have succumbed to if we stayed?” Echo questions immediately only for them to realize that she told them to go on purpose. She knew she’d get ambushed.
But she always lands back on her feet.
“You took on a small fleet of controlled droids, including the ship they came onto the planet in. Just so they would make it back without issue”
“The ship was to send out my beacon. Couldn’t really destroy it and I was in no condition it pilot. I didn’t think I’d get back in the same day the batch did, but hey. I got lucky I guess? But I swear Crosshair seems to always want to push your buttons Kix”
“He cares about you. They all do. You’ve been out cold for a week and they haven’t left yet.”
“You just want them to leave you alone”
“I’d like them to stop asking me when you’ll wake up. But now I can proudly say that you have” Kix got up from his seat beside her bed as Y/N felt uneasy and he knew that. “They can wait a minute if you’d like”
“Nah, let them in. I’ll just continue to annoy you if we sit here for another moment”
“Alright. Don’t walk on the leg. You’ll be out of commotion for a while”
“Hear you loud and clear doc” Y/N smiles watching Kix leave the medbay before watching the bad batch enter. They weren’t in all of their armor, but they always look menacing regardless. “Howdy boys. What brings you to these parts of the galaxy? Shouldn’t you be back on Kamino living it up in that small quarters the five of you share”
“Oh shut up” Wrecker snaps making Y/N tense a bit. “You scared us!”
“I what…?”
“You should’ve told us about the tracking mechanism in the device. The one you couldn’t remove. Then we would’ve helped you with the ambush” Hunter states sitting beside Y/N’s bed as the words didn’t seem to want to come out of her. Nor were any of them done.
“They could’ve kidnapped you. Harmed you worse than what we see now. Fuck. You could’ve died!” Echo snaps bringing himself to the other side of the bed. “HOW DOES THAT MAKE US FEEL?”
“Echo I—-“
“No. You don’t get to say anything. Don’t get to steer this in a direction that “I did this for a reason” bullshit. We work as a team. You may be a bounty hunter and roam the galaxy working alone, but we have worked with you before. You know you are apart of a team. You don’t get to just think of yourself. We never do! We always think about you and your safety” Tech states pinching his arm out of anxious habit.
“You mean more to us than you think, Y/N. You’re an annoying fucking bounty hunter. But you are our annoying fucking bounty hunter. I’m not letting you die. None of us are” Crosshair crosses his arms leaning against the wall.
Y/N sat there after hearing all of them express their concerns. She didn’t even realize she was crying that entire time and it triggered all of them to start apologizing. But she shook her head laughing as she wipes away the tears.
“Maker…how did I get so lucky to have you five in my life” Y/N continues to laugh struggling to stop the tears. “Fuck it better be the drugs making me cry this much…”
“Most likely it’s not” Tech informs sitting on the end of the bed keeping mind of her elevated leg. “Could be you are still in pain”
“What?”
“Oh I’m kicking that medic’s ass” Wrecker yells. “I’m joining you on that bullshit” Crosshair adds about to leave when Hunter held the gesture up to stop them.
“No need to track down the 501st medic for an illegitimate reason.”
“And I’m not in pain…it’s just. Weird” She laughs again wiping away the ongoing tears. “I didn’t want to get attached. But I always keep coming back to you five. Not wanting to be torn away at the end of the day. I took that risk because you took plenty for me, I’m not losing any of you”
“We aren’t losing you either, cyar’ika” Hunter took her hand carefully into his.
Y/N finally relaxed after that, tense from her injuries and the sudden confession along with the additional yelling. She couldn’t help it. She felt safe with them even if she pushes their buttons. They are her home.
“So…” Y/N pulls her hand away giving them all a smirk as she leans back into the bed. “When did you five realize you have the hots for me?” She teases getting annoyed playful groans from Echo and Crosshair while Tech face palmed as Hunter shook his head. Wrecker just glared at her for a brief moment before roaring out a laugh.
“There’s our girl”
“May I remind you captain, how much I hate working with The Bad Batch”
“Wow. Even Echo?”
“Echo is the only exception. Well. Except for the attitude he developed the longer he stayed with those four”
“Five”
“What? It’s a team of six now?” Kix questions Rex as he nods waiting for the batch to join them for the report.
“Yeah. I believe you have worked on the sixth member before she had made her position permanent”
“Oh god you don’t mean—-“
Y/F/N Y/L/N, Bad Batch’s Bounty Hunter and Weapon Specialist
Y/N pushed open the doors alerting the group’s arrival as she gave the medic a wink and a smile causing Crosshair to loom over her making Kix immediately turn away.
“Awww come on Cross. Don’t scare them”
“What’s mine is mine”
“Yeah yeah” Y/N smiles pushing him to the back where he usually broods. “Miss me captain?”
“It’s always nice having you around Y/N, but when your partners glare at me like that. I wish you weren’t here” Rex smiles handing the datapad to Hunter as he and Echo look it over for a plan of attack.
“At least you’re honest”
Y/N’s armor now had the bad batch colors, but more specifically, the designed the boys carried on their armor or as tattoos were painted on her left arm plate. Starting top to bottom; the other half of hunter’s skull tattoo, tech’s caricature seen on the side of his helmet, crosshair’s obvious crosshair, echo’s handprint with half painted robotic, and at the end wrecker’s lula’s face print but with one eye missing to indicate his cybernetic.
She is truly one of theirs.

Technically Engaged: Chapter 4- The Speedo
Summary: David Filoni is a coward and won’t give us a crack plot of Tech being forced into an engagement he doesn’t want to be in so I gotta do it for him.
Chapter 4: Guys I really don’t know what I am doing
Warnings:This is all around a crack fic that I honestly would expect to happen as a filler episode in star wars. Just many chapters of Tech being weird trying to put off a princess he is engaged to.
Word Count: 691
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Tech trust me. If you wear these out to the beach for your engagement party, they will surely have to call off the wedding!" Echo calls from the outside of the changing room door, tossing over a leopard print speedo. "Trust me! Its a foolproof plan." He insists, covering his mouth as he tries to hide his laughter.
"A-are you sure about this?" Tech's nervous voice called from the dressing room. "This is so revealing!Provocative!" The sound of shuffling can be heard as he puts the small piece of cloth on. "Are you sure this is legal?" He asks, looking at himself in the mirror.
"Not sure if its legal but its funny." Echo says under his breath, looking over just in time to see Hunter give him a dirty look. "What?" He asks, shrugging. "No one else has any other ideas." He knocks on the door of the changing room. "Hey Tech you done in there yet? We need you to come out so we can work on today's plan!"
Tech takes a deep breath and adjusts his goggles. "Aright! I'm coming out." He unlatches the door, stepping out of the room slowly. "Well," He looks at the other two. "How do I look?" He asks nervously, adjusting the short swimsuit."This thing is highly impractical. Where am I supposed to keep my datapad?"
"Uh, don't worry about it Tech. I'll holding it for you, here!" Hunter averts his eyes as he reaches for the pad in Tech's hands, exchanging it with a towel."Just cover yourself up until we get out to the beach." He adds, looking away.
"It can't be that bad!" Tech huffs, ignoring Hunter's request. He turns around to glare at Echo. "If this doesn't work I am going to hack into that brain of yours and fix whatever screws you still have loose in that head of yours!" He exclaims, putting his hands on his hips. "I am going to have awkward tan lines, a wedgie for the next 6 hours, and leopard print?" He looks down, shaking his head. "Even I know this is out of style!"
Echo's face flushes red as he avoids looking at the angry trooper. "If this doesn't work, I don't know what will-"
"HEY GUYS!" Wrecker's voice booms as he walks into the locker room. "Guess who is on the planet right now and on their way to the party- HOLY FORCE TECH! WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?!" He stops, covering his eyes. "I'm sorry i thought you guys would be ready!"
Tech rolls his eyes."We are ready Wrecker. This speedo is Echo's brilliant idea." He shoots another dirty look before tossing the towel over his shoulder, folding his arms self consciously across his chest.
"Who is on the planet Wrecker?" Hunter asks, desperately trying to change the subject. "You said someone was coming to the party?"
Wrecker removes the hand covering his eyes, looking at the ground. "Oh uh right! Its Crosshair! And thats not all." Wrecker growls, cracking his knuckles. "Tarkin is with him."
"Why the hell are they here?" Echo begins to panic. "I thought King Hubert said he wouldn't call the Empire if Tech agreed to marry Tech! All of this, for nothing!"
"Because I told him to invite him, clearly." Tech responds, walking toward the door. "He is our brother after all and doing this will have the Empire thinking they have us trapped. If we are stuck here on this planet, we aren't a threat. And besides if  have to suffer at a beach like this, so does Crosshair," He takes a final look at himself in the mirror, turning around to check the backside."Wait why does it say "Juicy" on the butt?"
Hunter rubs his temples as Echo and Wrecker laugh. "Come on you three idiots." He sighs, trying to hold back a smile. "Lets go get this over with." He picks up his own towel, walking toward the door. "Lets go see that wayward brother of ours and your beloved princess." He teases.
"Please maker, let this work." Tech mumbles one last time, adjusting the speedo one last time before following the others.

Problematic [Pt. 2]
The Bad Batch x Reader • Enemies to Lovers • She/Her pronouns • ANGST/SFW • Bounty Hunter!Reader
Requested by: Anon
Part(s): 1 • 3
——
“Clone Force 99? That sounds very familiar” Y/N smiles at Cody when he informed her who they’ll be working with.
“Excited?” Rex questions seeing Y/N laugh.
“Just wait captain”
“THE CALVARY HAS ARRIVED!” Wrecker announces after the ship almost took out a dozen people. He instantly locks eyes with the bounty hunter and suddenly groans. “WHY ARE YOU HERE?!”
“Wow I can’t see my favorite member of the bad batch?”
“You tell all of us that one” Crosshair bites down on the end of his toothpick practically snapping it as he locks eyes with her. “Why are you here?”
“Awww Crossy don’t be mean. I’m allowed to help around here. I’m not entirely useless”
“But you are” He got up into her personal space as the look in Y/N’s eyes made Cody immediately cut in.
“We need him Y/N. Don’t kill him”
“Like she even would”
Crosshair froze after his words when Y/N had her blaster up against his abdomen but his attention was also drawn to the turret with her signature color palette on it. Similar to the batch’s but remove the red with white.
“Don’t test me, baby”
“Always a pleasure to work with your crazy ass”
——
“The sonar device should be able to detect if there is a building under the ice. If there is. That’s where we’ll need to go” Tech informs the batch as Y/N watches him work before hearing teeth chattering from Wrecker.
“Wrecker put your fucking helmet on” Y/N states.
“You first di’kut!”
“Gladly” Y/N smirks pressing a button behind her ears unleashing her helmet to expand onto her head.
“Woah. How long did it take you to design that?” Wrecker exclaims as he puts his helmet on as promised.
“Depends. How long did it take me to build it or retrieve the materials to make such” Y/N states before taking the sonar. “Tech we can’t just hug the Marauder. We have to go out onto the ice”
“You’ll need to be careful”
“I’ve been on this planet before Tech. Wouldn’t be the first time I fell through the ice” Y/N reassures but it didn’t bring reassurance. She slide along the ice as the device started off quiet and then grew louder.
“How are we suppose to join her?”
“Like she said before. Some of us can handle the ice cold when we dive. The rest of you stay here in case we trigger anything to come after us”
“How do you believe we’ll be able to stay on the ice without breaking through?” Wrecker asks as Tech takes his backpack off and anything else unnecessary.
“Bring what you need Wrecker. You, Hunter, and I will join Y/N. Crosshair and Echo will stay and keep surveillance”
“YOURE GOING TO WANT TO DITCH THE HELMETS. THE GEAR INSIDE WONT SURVIVE THE AMOUNT OF WATER THAT COULD FLOOD IN” Y/N yells for their attention and to inform.
Soon the three joined Y/N as she handed Tech the device before reaching into her utility taking out a pen sized laser cutting a circle around them.
“You’ll need these. But follow me”
Hunter caught the device seeing the breathing component similar to the oxygen masks they hold on the ship for planets with little to none breathing capability.
“Follow the hunter, gentlemen” Tech states jumping in after biting down on the mouth piece.
The three followed the light that Y/N emitted for them to keep track of the direction they’re going.
Wrecker pulls himself up into the moon pool as Y/N grabbed his arm helping him through. “Maker the water was cold!”
“It is a snow planet” Tech reassures not liking the fact of being drenched.
“Let’s get this device and get this job over with”
“Agreed” Y/N adds as she lead the way for the most part. “Truly wished Hoth was warmer. But too much to ask for when working with you five”
“You are always a handful” Hunter rolls his eyes before suddenly grabbing the back of Y/N’s armor pulling them out of view of the patrolling droids.
“You would think this device would have zero importance being in a facility under the frozen tundra” Tech whispers only receiving an eye roll from both Hunter and Y/N.
“From the looks of it. There’s only a handful. But if you pulled me back—-“
“There’s much more in there”
“Looks like I’ll have to use another truck up my sleeve. Big guy, follow my lead” Y/N states taking out a smoke grenade and stepping in soon rolling it into the center of the room making the droids turn and sound an alarm when the smoke dispersed. “Get’em”
Didn’t take Wrecker long to plow through the droids and shoot a number of them. When the smoke flows out Tech immediately went to the panel to get the information on the device and anything more onto a drive.
Hunter and Y/N kept watch on the halls leading to their position as Wrecker watched Tech’s back.
“How long has it been?”
“Since what?”
“You’ve slept”
“Are you really curious about that now?”
“What. Nothing is coming at us. I’m not hearing anything yet”
“You’re definitely going to jinx it, sergeant” Y/N laughs a little bit. “I don’t believe any bounty hunter gets any sleep, let alone one with a hobby to enhance every ability known to man making it mechanical. But I’m never going to give you a straight answer”
“Because you’re stubborn that way”
“You know me so well, Hunter”
——
“What are you doing?”
“Eating?”
“Alone in an empty mess hall”
“Hey no one asked you to join me. I’m just as allowed to be in the mess hall like the rest of y’all.” Y/N snaps at Hunter as the sergeant decided to join them even if it was 0000 hours (midnight).
“What are you still doing here on Kamino? Don’t you have bounties to take care of?”
“Of course I do”
“Then?”
“Heard a few of you got injured and put out of commission for a bit. I’ve been asked to fill in if you take on any missions”
“You can wait while also take care of other things”
“Hunter, I may annoy all of y’all. But I’d rather be buried six feet under the sand on Tatoonie then leave my any of my favorite batch members until I know they are alright” Y/N states picking up her tray making her leave.
——
“Finally took you long enough” Crosshair watches Y/N be the last to emerge from the water. “Are we done?”
“No, now we have to wait” Tech informs only hearing groans as a response. “We needed to get out of there before a new rotation of droids take note of what we’ve done. Our ship is well hidden but we’ll have to make camp close enough to the underground facility to keep the connection until I can bypass through it”
“Better be fast Tech. I give it two days before we’re caught” Y/N tells him as she went back to the ship to get what they’ll need to survive the cold weather.
A few hours pass as Hunter finished pitching up the tent, Echo finishing the fire, Tech continuing with the bypass, and for the others they kept watch if the fire decided to come.
“Y/N. You’re sleeping first. With Hunter and Cross. We’ll rotate every three. When we rotate, you’ll continue the bypass like I know you can. So we won’t be stuck here forever. The other two will keep surveillance”
“For once…I’m not going to fight your orders” Y/N states going into the tent leaving the five alone for a moment, it didn’t take her long to pass out once curled up enough.
“She doesn’t sleep” Hunter whispers standing close to the tent to keep an eye on her as well as the mission. “You think they still happen?”
“What are you referring to exactly?” Echo questions as Tech couldn’t help it.
“Before you joined. The bounty hunter had night terrors. Severe ones that broke Crosshair’s arm once when he was trying to wake her.”
“How come I’ve never—-“
“She doesn’t sleep. Not because of you or us” Crosshair interrupted immediately. “Herself.” He steps into the tent after saying such, seeing Y/N’s form before laying down.
“Get some rest sergeant. Hopefully we’ll be out of this planet soon” Tech cuts the conversation short as Hunter went inside after Crosshair leaving the three outside.
Few fire walls later
Bingo. The device is now in control of the republic.
Just need to return to Coruscant
But it’s not that easy, now is it?
Once the device was disconnected from its main source, Y/N felt uneasy. That couldn’t have been this easy. She quickly got up grabbing the back of Crosshair.
“What in the fuck are you doing?!”
“Just shut it. Cross” Y/N states detaching the armor piece for his back and attaching the tablet before putting it all back together. “Okay. Now get out of here. All five of you”
“What? Just like—-“
“Yeah just like that. We’re done. Get that back to the council. I’ll meet you there”
“And how will—-“
“Enough questions. Just go. Before I kick your fucking ass” Y/N got up in Hunter’s face pushing past him taking out a beacon from her belt turning it on before her jet pack and leaving the five.
“Well, you heard the bitch” Crosshair bites making his way back.
“You heard her!” Wrecker exclaims picking up their stuff with Echo helping to make it go faster.
Hunter turns to the ice flat seeing Y/N hover over it feeling uneasy as Tech turns to the distracted sergeant.
“We gotta go”
“No we—-“
“I’m not going to fight her on this. She’ll join us back on Coruscant”
“Right…”
“Right!” Tech asserts pulling Hunter and heading out with the rest of the squadron.
It still doesn’t feel right

Updated: Crosshair
Because this next episode is gonna,, it's gonna. Oh also these are all evil. I'm pretty sure. I have a game for you, guess which ones are gonna be fics 😌
﹄『❝Crosshair❞』﹃
Crosshair wasn't always a grump, he wasn't always unhappy. When they were little he'd smile and laugh and always want to play. But something happened and the light in his eyes flickered out. Once that happened he distanced himself, lashed out, he never says 'I love you' back. Most of the time he's who he is now, but on the good days, maybe even late at night, he'll crack a smile, make a joke, laugh a little. In those moments, he's okay again, he loves again. But those moments never last long. The unhappiness sinks back in and he shuts down. His brothers wish they knew what they did to take away his smile.
Tech and Crosshair used to be a lot closer, Tech would sneak them out while Hunter and Wrecker were sleeping, take them to 99's room and they'd watch old movies with him or go exploring. Crosshair would sit with Tech, doing the math for Tech's project. But one day, one random, insignificant day, Crosshair changed his mind. He taught Tech to do the math on his own, offering only to check. He'd shoo Tech off when his brother wanted to go exploring in the dead of night. He'd rather sleep. He started hanging out with Wrecker a lot more. Tech, why, well how it affected him is for another time... Over the years, the fact they were inseparable became such a silly thought, as if it had never been true. Crosshair had made a decision that day when he was a cadet, Tech was no longer his favorite brother and from there, they drifted apart.
There's a headcannon floating around that Crosshair was afraid of the dark due to his enhanced vision, I've stuck with that. Now, he isn't afraid of the dark, that's what he says. For the most part, he isn't. But every now and then, he'll close his eyes at night when walking around the Maruador, if he gets up to use the refresher or something, he keeps his eyes closed. So Crosshair also knows his home blind.
This came in handy when Wrecker's accident left him unable to see in his left eye. Sure he has a cybernetic eye now, but he didn't get it until his wound had healed. Crosshair remembered, in the days they waited for their brother to come home, Crosshair closing his eyes and finding out where Wrecker may hurt himself, then he closed his left eye and did it all again.
When Crosshair was little he'd call Hunter 'Worm,' He didn't know why but he always had such a hard time talking to Hunter. Wrecker and Tech were easy, but Hunter, if Crosshair was honest, kinda scared him. He was very much intimated by his older brother for a long time. Sometimes he still is. So he'd call Hunter 'Worm,' something small and good. It made it easier, in a way. Nowadays, he doesn't call Hunter anything really, he doesn't try to talk to Hunter anymore. But there have been occasions, very rare ones, where Crosshair is scared or desperate, where he reverts back to a child, and 'Worm' slips out.
Inspired by the reels, Crosshair is one of those weirdos who can fall asleep in a moving vehicle. He doesn't sleep a whole bunch, if they're floating in space or on a planet. But when they're flying, he'll zonk out as long as they're moving. Hunter and Tech think it's funny, it's almost like Crosshair's snooze button. Crosshair says it's a little stupid, he doesn't know why, but he just really likes to sleep when they're moving. Wrecker figured it out, though he's never said anything. When they were little, Crosshair was pretty sickly and spent most days laying around or at target practice. Needless to say, Cross' never had the energy or muscles his brothers did, when he realized that his smile started to fade. So Wrecker would put Crosshair up on his shoulders or in his arms and he'd run around the facility, just making his little brother laugh. Wrecker would jump, do abrupt stops, etc.. Anything to make Crosshair happy, he'd keep running until Crosshair was too tired and ready for bed. So Wrecker figured when in motion, that's when Crosshair feels safest, as if he was little again, safe in his older brother's arms.

Battle Scars Part 1- OC Inserted
So, quick disclaimer, Kace Raharia is one of my 4 Star Wars OC's (9 if you count the clones i'm working on). One other OC of mine is mentioned at one point in this fic: Arden Blythe. I'm working on some original works for her and her master, Jorin Fel, so, just thought I'd give some explanation before y'all started reading.
This will be in two parts. Part two will be linked here when it's done.
Tumblr media
"Can we go any slower?" Kace shouted to Tech, who was in the cockpit. The girl- a medic assigned to help the Bad Batch during the Clone Wars- was manning one of the guns, shooting at the ships pursuing the Havoc Marauder. The loose seat spun easily to face the ships targeting them.
Loud explosions and blaster fire followed them as they continued to make their escape away from the planet and deeper into space. The noise didn't scare Kace as much as it did back when she first started tagging along on the Bad Batch's missions. However, it was the thought of a shot not dodged that made her grow uneasy.
"How much longer until we're in hyperspace, Tech?" Hunter called from the other gun, aiming at the ships as well. There was an edge to his words, pushing his brother to hurry and get them out of the dire situation.
Tech's voice came through the comms with annoyance laced through it. "That depends on when Echo plans on getting the drive back online."
Kace knew Tech took a an accusatory glance at his copilot from his seat.
"I'm working on it." Echo's rough voice came through.
It would have been funny if not for the three ships chasing them down.
Kace pressed the triggers on her gun, watching as lasers just missed their target. "Is a lizard really worth all this trouble?" Her voice came out soft, with a hint of sarcasm in it, but with the comm on, the rest of the crew was able to hear her.
"Until you can think of another way to get our hands on some credits, this is what we have to do," Hunter shot back and Kace let out a sigh. "Don't sound so sad-" Hunter let out a grunt of effort as he swung his gun around to aim at the ships, "-this is almost over, and then we can relax."
"At the rate we're going at, Cid's not going to let us off the hook anytime soon." Kace let out a strangled grunt of her own as she maneuvered her seat and gun, her dark brown hair trailing behind her.
"Keep your eyes on the target, Kace," Hunter reminded her. There is always a bigger picture to be aware of.
Kace let out another sigh. "Sir, yes, sir."
"I don't think Ruby likes this very much." Omega's worried voice rang from the hull of the ship, a mere few paces away from both guns.
"You named that thing?" Wrecker's loud voice came from the same direction.
"Steady yourselves!" Kace called to the rest of the crew as she watched a blaster bolt from one of the ships come to make a direct hit to the back of the ship. The turbulence of the impact caused her and Wrecker to let out groans.
"What's with these guys?" Wrecker asked, shouting over the loud lasers and explosions.
"Well, we did steal from them," Omega countered, her voice just as loud as Wrecker's.
Tech's voice rang in from the comm. "Technically, the Rhokai stole the lizard first. We are merely intercepting it." His argument, Kace considered, was logical; however, theft was theft, even if it was from a thief.
If you steal from a thief, that makes you no better than them.
"They don't see it that way." Hunter's voice was dark, brooding, almost as if it was a comment meant for himself. He almost sounded as annoyed as Tech did earlier.
Kace would have swooned as his deep voice if they weren't in such a situation. She would never actually confess her feelings to the clone, especially due to the Batch's newfound life on the run and on the road. The stress upon all of their shoulders was enough to deal with, she wouldn't be able to handle a relationship like that on top of other uncertainties.
He probably doesn't even like her back.
Turbulence and a loud clang of metal pulled Kace from her thoughts. Her eyes didn't budge from the sight before her: the ships still shooting at the Marauder.
"What was that?" She asked after hearing a familiar hiss of the lizard. "No..." She whined quietly. Her ears perked up, hearing Hunter chuckle softly from the other gun. With a quick shake of her head, Kace refocused on the task at hand. Now is not the time to be crushing on someone.
"It's loose! It's loose!" Wrecker confirmed Kace's earlier thoughts of the lizard. "Get it off! Get it off! Get it off!"
"Stay calm. You're scaring her!"
A bit more turbulence.
"Get it off. Get it off. Get it off!"
Kace felt the ship shake but from inside and let out a sigh. She continued shooting at the ships.
A squeal.
"Hyperdrive's online."
"Got it."
Kace took one more shot before the ship blasted away, watching as the blaster bolt hit the wing of one of the ships chasing them. She froze, staring at the star lines that took over her field of vision. The light blue and white light was a stark contrast against the red and orange explosion she caused.
She didn't even notice him as he came near her. "Nice shot." Hunter's voice came from the door frame leading into the room, causing her to flinch.
Kace turned to face him, her dark hair falling softly over her shoulder. "I- thanks?" She relaxed under his soft stare, her once tense shoulders loosening themselves. Her grip on the gun loosened enough to let her hands fall to her lap.
"You sound... uneasy," Hunter commented. "Are you okay?" He moved toward Kace, his hand reaching out to be placed on her shoulder.
Kace unconsciously leaned into his touch. The warmth of Hunter's hand making its way through his glove and the outer layer of her coat.
"I always feel bad when I..." Kace took a breath. "I'm a medic and-"
"And you're supposed to be helping people... not hurting them..." Hunter said slowly, finishing Kace's statement for her.
She nodded and felt as Hunter's gloved hand slowly began to drag its way up to rest on her cheek. A tingling sensation followed as cold became warm only to become cold again. Heat rushed to her cheeks as her face was guided to look up at Hunter.
"You protected us, Kace, thank you."
~~~~~
The Havoc Marauder had landed back on Ord Mantell safely and now the crew stood in front of Cid, watching as she looked at the lizard through the bars of the cage.
The small reptile, which was probably as long as Kace's arm, growled softly. Cid grimaced. "That is one strange-looking lizard," she muttered.
Echo was the first to speak up from his spot, just behind Hunter and to the side. "What's your client want it for?" His tone was rather cold and harsh, wanting to know the answer without any beating around the bush.
"Maybe it's a pet, maybe he wants to turn it into stew. Don't know, don't care." Cid turned away to walk toward the bar.
Hunter turned to face Cid as she left the boys. "As long as you get paid." His voice came out dark and deep.
"Now you're catching on." Cid spoke in a way that you can hear the smile in her voice from here all the way to the next system if you listened close enough. "And guess what? That means you get paid too. Bring the lizard in the back." And with that, Cid left the group.
Echo moved forward to grab the cage then began to head to the back with Cid, the rest the group following behind. In the dimly lit bar, Kace wondered how he even managed to get to the bar without tripping on something like she almost had.
Just as she was about to step through the doors, something made Kace stop, like she was being watched. She felt a chill run down her spine that made her shiver. Something compelled her to look back but right as she was about to, a warm hand was placed on her shoulder.
"You alright?" Hunter's familiar voice sounded from behind her. He made his way around her to stand by her side, his hand never leaving her shoulder.
"I feel like we're being watched." Kace spoke quietly, but loud enough for Hunter to hear. He nodded.
"We are."
Kace felt the blood drain from her face, the room suddenly feeling much colder. She took a small step to be closer to Hunter and his warmth. He noticed her movement, not doubt, especially due to his enhanced abilities.
Hunter leaned down to whisper in Kace's ear. "Come on." Keeping his hand on her shoulder, he guided her into the back, where Tech, Echo and Cid were waiting for them.
"Finally." Cid's cold eyes watched as the two entered the room, her gaze holding what Kace saw as almost disapproval. Tech and Echo's gazes followed to look at the newcomers before they snapped back to Cid as she continued talking. "All right, fellas, here's your cut."
From the counter Cid stood behind, she opened a small case full of credits and took out only a few to hand to Hunter. Only a small fraction of what was in the case. The boys and Kace couldn't help but look at Cid skeptically, feeling as though they've been screwed over by the Trandoshan.
"Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. You said the job paid three times this." Hunter pointed out, his voice holding an accusatory tone.
"For me, not for you," Cid clarified, her expression was one that was neither amused nor impressed at at the clone.
Echo leaned forward, over Hunter's shoulder. "And just how is this a mutually beneficial arrangement?" His dull eyes pointing at Cid with a sharp glare.
"You're breathing, aren't you? Rather generous considering the debt you owe me," Cid said. Her green eyes looking down to a data pad she held in her large green hand.
Echo and Tech looked at each other, sharing the same incredulous look: eyebrows furrowed and large frowns. Kace let out a soft, sad sigh and held the bridge of her nose with her right hand. Her left hand tucked itself under her elbow. Hunter raised an eyebrow in disbelief. All four of them dumbfounded at Cid's words.
"What debt?" Hunter asked for them, prompting Cid to drop the data pad onto the counter for him to read. "Docking fees, port charges, gear, fuel, rations, and 20 cartons of Mantell Mix?" Hunter read out loud to everyone in the room.
"Cid, there's six of us and one is a child!" Kace tried to reason but stopped herself from continuing when Cid raised her clawed hand up, shutting her down.
"Now, I like you boys- and girl, especially you. You understand what they don't- but I'm not running a charity here. You need a big score for us to be square."
Echo leaned forward again. "Like what?"
"Like retrieving that tactical droid, but you bungled that op. I suggest you figure something out before you see my ugly side." Cid's threat made the air thick and the atmosphere more tense.
"That's not her ugly side?" Tech muttered to Hunter and Echo, but still loud enough for Kace and Cid to hear. Kace elbowed him roughly in his armored rib, causing them both to hiss softly in pain.
"What was that, googles?" Cid frowned, almost begging the clone to repeat himself.
Before anything else could be said, the group heard the familiar sound of blaster fire, as well as a crash, from the floor of the bar. They made quick work getting out of the back room, Hunter leading the group, with his blaster out, followed by Kace, then Echo, Tech then Cid.
Loud screams sounded from two of the regulars as they ran to the exit to get out of the building, eager to get to safety.
Their gazes then moved to a cloaked figure at the other side of the bar, familiar pieces of armor exposed from underneath. White with a blue stripe in the middle. He moved and softly put his blaster onto the table in front of him.
"Hey, what's going on in here?" Cid's voice rang through the space as she shoved through the group. "Who are you?" She asked, pointing her staff at the man before putting it back down.
The cloaked figure took a few steps forward before taking off his hood to expose a head of shaved blond hair and the face of a clone- a reg.
A man Kace recognized as Captain Rex of the 501st legion. He worked alongside some of the best Jedi generals and commanders that the Order had to offer: Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, Obi-Wan Kenobi and even Arden Blythe.
She even had to tend to a few of his wounds when he worked with the Batch near the end of the war.
"Rex?" Echo asked, the uncertainty clear in his voice. Kace watched as Cid glanced back at him before facing Rex once more.
"Oh, great. Another clone. Just what I needed." Cid's green eyes glanced at Hunter then back at Rex as she spoke. "Well, don't get comfy. I'm done taking in strays." She shoved Hunter with her staff, making him stumble to the side. "This ain't a clone clubhouse, ya know."
Kace and Echo turned and watched as Cid walked to the back with glares pointed at her back.
"Unbelievable. Thinkin' the own the place," Cid muttered as she disappeared into the other room.
Hunter took a few hesitant steps toward Rex, followed by the rest of the group. Tech and Echo shared another glance with each other, almost as if they were talking with their minds, which Kace wouldn't put it past them, they were together often.
"Captain," Hunter greeted first.
Rex spoke slowly. "It's been a while, boys." He turned to look at Kace, his familiar brown eyes- eyes she's seen for the past few years- staring into her green ones. "Kace." She nodded in acknowledgement.
"Where have you been, Rex?" Echo asked first with the wave of his scomp link.
"Hmm..." Rex shrugged. "That's a long story."
~~~~~
The group had moved to the bar, Rex sitting on a stool while the rest stood around. The cool light hanging over the beverages on display was the only light bright enough to really see one another.
Rex had recounted his experience after Order 66. The look in his eye was distant, but still warm. The group listened intently. "And when the war ended, I guess you can say I've been... keeping a low profile." He glanced around the group.
All eyes moved to Tech as he spoke up. "Very low. Imperial files have you listed as killed in action."
Rex's eyebrows furrowed, a frown taking over his lips. He was more distant as he replied, "Being dead in the Empire's eyes has its advantages."
"Well, how'd you track us down?" Echo asked. He lifted his cup up to Rex to tap his against it before taking a drink.
"Trace and Rafa Martez. They said a squad of rogue clones, and a young woman, helped them on Corellia." Rex paused, turning around on his stool to look at the group better. "They told me I could find you here. And that you were traveling with a kid." He turned to Hunter, then Kace. "Who is she?"
"Omega." Kace answered quietly. She played with her cup tilting it from side to side and watching the contents of it spin around like a sort of storm.
"She's a clone like us." Hunter voice almost had amusement in it. But Rex's eyes widened, shock overtaking his features.
"Well, look who it is." Another familiar voice sounded from the doorway. Wrecker let out a loud laugh as he entered the bar, followed by Omega. "Come 'ere, Rex!" He opened his arms wide to wrap them around the blond clone and lifted him up in a tight hug.
Rex let out a grunt. "Yeah. Good to see you too, Wrecker," he greeted back. A small smile formed on his lips, as well as the rest of the Batch's.
This was a moment of happiness for the Batch, Kace noted, finding an old friend who they hadn't seen in months.
"I thought you didn't like the regs," Omega chimed in from the side.
Wrecker turned around, still holding Rex in his arms. "This one we like," he said before putting the clone down. Rex pushed him away and turned to face Omega.
"Omega, this is Rex," Hunter introduced the two and Rex knelt down to be eye level with her.
Kace couldn't help but smile at the scene, just like the rest of the Batch. Rex, she noted, was always kind and respectful, mindful of others. Maybe that came from working with the Jedi.
"I've met many clones in my time, but never one like you," Rex greeted. The two shared an intense eye contact as Omega neared him.
She was almost analyzing him, Kace noticed. Reading him, figuring him out. Rex leaned back slightly as Omega got closer. "You're a generation one."
"How'd you know that?" Rex asked, almost amused, but also nervous.
"From the lines on your face," she answered, prompting a chuckle from Rex.
He turned around to face the rest of the Batch, who was standing by the bar. "Yeah, I guess I've been around," he said with a smile.
"You got that right," Wrecker laughed out. However, the fun and games ended quickly as he groaned, placing his hand on his head. His headache came back.
"Kace, I need one of those med patches," Wrecker said, glancing over at her. She was already on her feet and behind the bar.
"You already used the last one," she informed before pulling out a cup and filling it with water. "Here, drink some water." She handed it to Wrecker, who said a quiet thanks, before coming back around the counter.
"What's wrong?" Rex asked, his voice going deep. Kace looked at him as she made her way to stand between him and Echo. He looked like he was prepping for a skirmish. She could tell by his stance and expression and her eyes widened.
"Rex..." She muttered, catching on to what he was implying.
"Nothing. It's just a headache," Wrecker tried to play off, shaking his head slightly. His signature smile fell to form a frown due to the pain he felt.
"Which are becoming more frequent," Echo countered, moving his glass in a gesture to Wrecker.
Kace's eyes never left Rex. She watched as he turned his face from Tech to Wrecker, looking at him like he was staring down an enemy.
"Is that so?" Rex's voice came out dangerously deep.
"If you're concerned about the so-called inhibitor chips, don't be. Our deviant nature appears to have impeded their functionality." Tech paused, before adding, "Except in Crosshair."
"You're telling me you haven't removed your chips?" Rex's voice came out, dangerously low, a calm before a storm. It was like a warning.
"No, not yet." Tech seemed to notice it too, by the look in his eyes as he spoke.
Rex reached out and grabbed Kace's forearm and began pulling her behind him with his left hand. She let out a quiet gasp as she tripped over her feet. Rex's right hand moved his cloak away to expose his blaster.
The Batch, too, moved to a defensive position, Hunter moving to stand up straight, mimicking Rex's stance. The rest squared their shoulders, but made no other moves.
"Rex..." Hunter warned, but Rex started talking again.
"Those chips make you a threat to everyone around you. Even them." Rex gestured to Omega and Kace. He placed his hand on his blaster this time. "You're all ticking time bombs."
Kace furrowed her eyebrows at the captain. "Rex-"
"Take it easy, Captain." Hunter took hesitant steps forward, his voice wary.
"What's in your head is more dangerous than you can imagine. I've seen what happens when the chip activates, and I don't want to bury any more of our brothers." You could almost see the trauma that Rex went through in his eyes as he talked. Like they were a gateway to a part of him that only lived in the past, that only lived in pain.
Kace watched as Hunter loosened his stance.
Rex continued, "Trust me. It is not something you can control. I couldn't." His eyes held so much pain, so much regret as he thought back to his experience with the chip. He swallowed his pain and looked back at the Batch. "It's a risk you do not want to take."
Hunter's eyes wandered. He looked fondly at Omega, his eyes holding an expression only a parental figure could have for their child. He then looked at Kace, something different was hidden in his eyes, an expression she couldn't place. She watched as he looked back to Rex, his eyebrows furrowing.
"How do you suggest we get them out?" Hunter asked after a long period of silence and contemplation.
Rex let go of his blaster and Kace's arm. "Good question. I'll be in touch."
