Recs and Reviews
This story must be read twice. The first time, read it as you would any great story. Let yourself relax into it, let the angst build, admire the characterization and lovely turns of phrase. Then, afterward, after suitable "sink in" time (which may vary by reader from 10 minutes to two years), read it again, knowing now what you didn't know then. Sometimes, out of the blue, I feel a NEED to re-read this story. You'll know why soon.
Sex in a public place. This story is so powerful and emotional and heartbreaking. I remember when I first read it, it was otherworldy and even still it gives me chills. Obi-Wan has chosen the path of an ascetic, but a long-practiced tradition must be braved before he can move on.
