Summary: Following the events of After Bandomeer, Obi-Wan adjusts to being a padawan. This story accepts JA 1-4 as canonical, and then diverges from the series; Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan return to Coruscant immediately after JA4, and JA5-6 didn't happen. (Hey, I started the story before they came out, okay?)
Recs and Reviews
This is technically pre-slash, but if you've read the Jedi Apprentice books and loathed the depiction of Qui-Gon as remote and closed, this fic is for you. This is the Qui-Gon I *wish* Jude Watson would write, but then again, who needs her when you've got Gussie? Obi-Wan returns to the Temple at Qui-Gon's side, and the story chronicles a series of small events which confirm Obi as Qui's padawan. I loved the little details which give us a complete picture of the beginning of their lives together -- it's yummy.
