Recs and Reviews

M/A is chockful of sadness. Obi-Wan wants love, is rebuffed by Qui-Gon, who worries about the age difference, the imbalance of power, the wrongness of it all. Qui-Gon wants love, is downcast by Obi-Wan's promiscuity, his beauteous Padawan's gleeful acceptance of his inner-sex-fiend and the probable Jedi Council problems. Not to mention the legal ones, if a certain Padawan isn't eighteen yet. Poor fellows. In what fandom used to call a "wallow," here are six sad, sad stories. Warnings galore for character agony and sometimes death. [...] Darkest Before The Dawn by Mystique relates the awful effects of a true Force vision on a dutiful Jedi Master. The Master allows nothing to stand in the way of his efforts to fulfill the will of the Force. The Padawan pays the price.[1]
