Recs and Reviews
I adore Jane St.Clair's work, and this one especially. Her style is beautiful, the meditative calm her stories exude is lovely and I just adore the way she can paint moods and scenes with language. I know I've recced her before, but it's worth reccing her again. I can't even say why I like this story so much, I just love the feel of it. There's a prequel to the story called "A Floating World", but you can read it independently. 
Gorgeous, pre-slashy goodness. This blew me away the first time I read it. It's almost lyrical. The hot springs scene... Gah. Read!
Carefully Everywhere Descending / Floating World / A Warm Place by Jane St. Claire. Jane is like a legend on M/A now. She has a style all her own. Few have her mastery of language and none has her touch. She once told me she couldn't do torrid passion. Just as well as this purported handicap of hers results in stories that are surpassingly beautiful not for tempestuous emotions, but serenity and sublimated desire. Quiet, subdued, very, very tender with more left unsaid than said. Such is the poetic mood that permeates the 3 stories here. Obi-Wan's love for his Master is slowly simmering with subtle promises to flare up one day but not quite yet.
