Alternate is a Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan story by Trudy West.

Summary: Qui-gon finds himself drawn to a person who is very like yet unlike Obi-wan. But is this familiar stranger a risk to the Jedi or to Qui-gon himself?

Recs and Reviews

Last week I did and AR, this week an AU. This is one of my favourites by Trudy. I've re-read several times and each time I find new details in it that I missed. It has everying, AU, Q/O, Angst, hurt/comfort and first time. I don't want to reveal too much.

This is a one of those rainy Saturday afternoon stories you want to immerse yourself in.

Trudy's strength is her characterization. No matter the situation, there is no doubt that these characters are an extrapolation of Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan from canon. Every action, even the sex is used to develop the story.

Trudy hasn't posted any new stories recently but I'm hoping that we'll see her work in the TPM universe soon.[1]
