an almost-novel. This is the heart of the zine. M Fae first began this last autumn when the M_A list was doing pon farr stories. It was supposed to be short and sweet Instead, it is a pon farr story (Obi-Wan in pon farr) but it is really the development of the relationship between Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan leading to their first time. Lots of sex off stage. Lots of anguish and angst for Qui-Gon. Connection, intensification, bleed-through of emotions, recognition of desire, oaths of celibacy, virginity, stunting of emotional growth, the blossoming of love, love expressed, a bond so strong that it cannot be broken. Two adults coming to terms with what they mean to each other and what they are willing to sacrifice for each other. Sex (!) eventually.
Recs and Reviews
NC17 | AU. This fic is actually a part of a zine, so it's in PDF form. It's wonderful long and torturous. Obi Wan is a member of a race that periodically goes through stages that Qui Gon calls "the blessing", but really can't be described as anything other than being in heat. It's complicated, by the fact that Obi Wan is in love with Qui Gon. Unfortunately, Qui Gon has taken vows of celibacy not to mention as Obi Wan's master he, literally, cannot desire him.
The writing is amazing and the story is good. M. Fae Glasgow really takes the time in this fic to allow for a slow believeable, transformation. The tension between Master and Padawan is almost palpable - at some points I felt so much anticipation that I wanted to skip to the end just to ease some of it. It's wonderfully tantalizing.Take an afternoon and dive into this story. You won't regret it.
