This Phantom Menace Q/O story has haunted me since the first time I read it, in the infancy of the M_A list. Kirby's brilliant story immerses us in Qui-Gon's point of view; few writers possess the skill to write his character/thoughts so beautifully. As the relationship between Master and Padawan takes a few sharp turns, much is revealed, and it's done in such a way that the after-effects linger for many moons after you finish the story. Some imagery still startles me with its clarity, and I've read the story a dozen times (and then some). It's my favorite Q/O fic, and highly recommended. [1]
Facing desire, head on. Best kiss scene. Oh. My. Goodness. (NC-17)[2]
Angst, passion, great Qui-Gon POV and one heart-stopping scene (okay, a few heart-stopping scenes) make this a must read. The masterful writing doesn't hurt either. A Kass & Kate fave![3]
