Summary: We all want Obi and Qui to stay together, but what happens as the years go by and their age difference becomes more pronounced? Twenty-five years down the line, Obi is 49 and Qui is about to turn 80. Hmm. How's the sex boys?
Recs and Reviews
There aren't a lot of Older!Qui and Obi fics out there, and fewer still that capture the real feeling of a long-term relationship. In this fic, Qui-Gon is on the cusp of his eightieth year, and Obi-Wan is forty-nine. Both men love each other dearly, but there are, unfortunately, obstacles... Artemis' dialogue is always crisp, fresh, and when it comes to the Jedi, very masculine. Her plotting is clear and straightforward, and she conveys emotion very effectively, heart-wrenchingly, even, but without resorting to OOC histrionics. Her stories are a pleasure to read, and this one is a particular favorite.
I like this one for its perspective on Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan. That scene never happened, and they went on to bond as mates. But what happens down the road, when Qui's 80? As she puts it so well, "how's the sex, boys?"
