Recs and Reviews

dark desires, by mona r. qui/obi, pg, star wars:tpm. a rather oddly angsty piece in which qui-gon isn't confident that he can complete obi-wan's training and obi-wan isn't confident at all. unpredictable and very, very good. mysterious and mysteriously satisfying.[1]
This is the first TPM story I ever read, one of the first ever written (before the movie even came out--slashers work fast), and the one that dragged me kicking and screaming into TPM slashdom. Despite the title, it's a sweet, mildly angsty story with surprisingly strong characterization considering when it was written. It's comfortfic for me--I still have the battered old print-out of it I carried around all last summer.[2]
