Pleasure Boy is a Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan story by Augusta Pembrooke. Originally published 1999 on the net, it was republished in 2000 the zine Pleasure Boy and Other Stories.

Summary: Where did Obi-Wan learn that sexy walk?

Author's Note:
I started this story inspired by the 'let's dress up the guys' posts on the MA-list. Originally I intended to produce a one-part (two, max) PWP based on this premise. Alas for smutty intentions, a plot reared its head, and it rather got away from me. In this story, Obi-Wan is any age that makes the story work for you; I noticed on re-reading this that he comes across somewhat youngish in certain scenes, but I attribute that to a sheltered upbringing in the Temple.

Recs and Reviews

This is, simply speaking, a classic in the archives of Q/O. Rereading this story always reminds me of a simpler time in the fandom, when the hardest question was "chanslash, yes or no?"

And well, this story is also incredibly hot, for many reasons -- the danger the boyz are in, the slinkiness of Obi-Wan's walk, the voyeuristic angle, and the almost-innocent tone Augusta takes with the story.

Also, this story contains a special guest appearance by an old favorite, SLEEP PANTS![1]
I think this was one of the seminal Obi-undercover-as-a-pleasure-boy-and-Qui-undercover-as-his-owner fics. But sooo good. Run, don't walk. Oh, and btw, you should read everything by this author.[2]
What's a Pretend Couple month without a Pretend Master And Pleasure Slave story? :) But seriously, this story is delicious and classic. Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon provide the perfect combination of flirtatious acting and sincere affection, and Jedi telepathy provides a perfect way to keep communicating between their normal selves as well as their undercover personas.[3]
Just thought I'd throw this one in because I like the imagery of Obi-Wan in pleasure boy attire (oh, momma!) Also contains what I consider the funniest line in fan fiction "Pretty sad state of affairs when it's harder to get into the Pleasure Academy than the Jedi Academy." (NC-17) [4]
