Recs and Reviews
I really don't know how to explain this story without giving it away. This is a different look at the Jedi experience of puberty. It's a clever idea, told with a wonderful wit. It could certainly use more sex, but I'm always left with many happy ideas floating around in my head. It's a nice short one that will leave you grinning. The story uses a device that I absolutely loathe, and carries it off far better than I've ever seen elsewhere.
This is such a new fandom and, as my dear friend loves to say, there's so just much space in space. Look at this story by Marag. It's called Growth. It's the first of its kind in this fandom and the twist is great. Run, don't walk!
And there is no way anyone can write a humour recs list without mentioning Growth by Marag, it's hard to resist spoiling this fic, I certainly don't have the self-control: Qui-Gon is a virgin! And he loses it spectacularly when puberty hits!
