Recs and Reviews

Pirate Qui! Billowy pirate shirts of translucent cotton, thigh high leather boots and tight pants. Virginal but steadfast Obi. Romance on the high seas. Shirt-ripper romance.

I didn't read ARs before this story. It converted me. Even after all these years it is still is one of my favourite Q/O stories. I remember printing it out on a rainy Saturday and spending the afternoon reading it. Elayna is the master of romance. And her AR plots maybe considered somewhat formulaic as romances can be but they never disappointing or tired. There is an intensity in the Q/O relationship that supersedes its fantasy based environs. Better yet it's part of a trilogy and like Lucas's trilogies we await the third episode. [...]

The treasures here are in the details, the turn of phrase, the language and the costume. It even extends to the bedroom or should I say the captain's cabin.

Directly following this story is "Darkness Descending". There also two MMOMs that take place after the second story from Quinn and Ben's POVs.

What can I say, these stories make me sigh. I'm a romantic at heart just not a soppy one.[1]
Master Elayna... Her Alternative Universes are utterly convincing, her writing is romantic and her ideas are always original, Master Elayna can do no wrong. The stories in The Jedi Kitties Playpen are infectuously cute, lovingly indulgent and you'd have to be anti-feline not to be affected by her meowing Obi-Wan. But if that's not your cuppa, more rollicking good times are to be had with pirates in Into The Light featuring a particularly exciting first time *pant pant* without foreplay![2]
I rec this simply because Pirate!Qui gives me shivers. And when he fucks Ben over the table I quivered. I'm a sucker for this kind of stuff, what can I say.[3]
