The Borrowed Ones was a Star Wars TPM fanfiction site.

The site linked to to Jane Mortimer's essay The Advantages of Fan Fiction as an Art Form and some interesting articles about Star Wars. It was a member of The Qui-Gon Jinn Webring and an affiliate of Stay On Target.

Description from The Atheneum of Dakshee:
Fan fiction by Marnie (a rabid Qui-Gon fan and a great writer). She also links to some of her favourite stories by other authors.[1]

Stories

Novel

The Borrowed Ones-Star Wars Fan Fiction.png
  • The Stolen Ones: A fan novel. It should have been an easy mission - a chance for Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan to reconcile their differences after the incidents on Melida/Daan and the death of Xanatos. Neither of them could know that they were about to stumble into the war for supremacy between Darth Sidious and his aged Master, Darth Jure. "Set between Jude Watson's books 'The Day of Reckoning' and 'The Fight for Truth' The Stolen Ones is aimed at a more grown up audience. I'd rate it at PG, because there's no sex but plenty of violence."

Short stories

  • Broken Qui-Gon, aged 9, has his first brush with the Dark Side. Caution, deals with child abuse. Rated R.
  • Coming Home. Following his conclusion in 'Heritage', Yoda meddles in the lives of his Padawans. WIP
  • Acts of Mercy - Padawan Jinn learns a hard lesson from his new Master.
  • A Bad Feeling - Result of a 500 word challenge on 'Library Archives'. Had to contain the words 'I have a bad feeling about this.'
  • Applied Tranquility - Ever wonder what there is to meditate about at the Temple? Small, stupid, humour piece.
  • Strange Meetings - At least they're synchronous in time! A Star Wars/Lord of the Rings crossover. WIP
  • Redemption - Have Obi-Wan and Anakin found a way to prevent the massacre at Geonosis?
  • The Magic Lamp - Luke Skywalker finds an abandoned holocron at Ben's house.
Another Pathetic Lifeform. Qui-Gon brings a new initiate to the Temple.
The Price of Freedom. Disaster strikes Jemmiah at a wedding.
The Shortened Lion. An abridged version of the Jemmiah Chronicals epic 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight', in which a number of Jedi on the way to a retreat are shipwrecked on a small, cursed moon.

Stay on Target! Fourty Five pages of SW links. Gasp! Amazing :)

Phantom Heresies. TPM fans must read these fascinating essays. I love the Politically correct Menace, and 'Jedi knight of infinate Faith.'

Jedi Apprentice Desktop Central Recognise the picture from Chapter One? She's giving them away free. Hurray!

Obi the Kid's site, Featuring the River Bank series. Wierd but very funny :)

General Kenobi.com The Fate of the Galaxy does not rest only in the hands of the Chosen One. Just what part did Obi-Wan play in Anakin's Downfall?

The Early Years Fanfic Archive READ 'Joint Strength' by Rene - IMHO far, far better than any of the Jedi Apprentice books.

Qui-Gonline discussion site and fan fic index. The ultimate site for Qui-Gon fans.

JA Fan Dimension Another big pre-TPM site, but with more of an Obi emphasis

Quiller's site Excellent Young Qui-Gon stories, plus loads of other goodies

TheForce.Net's fiction archive They have an editorial board - so no duff stories at all

Moriah Organa's Site, for a really well developed not quite AU

The Hells Chance Cantina. Home of the Jemmiah chronicals. Multi-author, very chaotic, very funny!

Green Saber Worth reading from top to bottom.

The Master's Pathway Call me a great big softie, but her young Jinn stories are so *cute*!

Wolfie's Den Not only is all Diane Coffin's stuff here, but lots of other excellent stories. The following is a must read - "Jedi Go Home" by Jane Jinn.

From "Jedi go Home:"
Feeling very vulnerable and very aware of Dr. Ra-sek-mun watching his every move, Ben laid back. An-Paj stretched out both hands, holding them flat just above his abdomen, which made him tense with anticipation, and told him," Relax, Obi-Wan, this won't hurt a bit."
Then he closed his eyes, which confused Ben. Hadn't he just said he'd wanted a closer look? A moment later, however, he felt that awful touch in his mind again, that whisper of a foreign presence that he'd felt only one terrible time before.
"No!" he screamed, leaping up from the bed and hitting An-Paj in the face, sending the Jedi Healer stumbling hard into Dr. Ra-sek-mun. Reaching the door, Ben slapped his hand across the control to make it open. Something barrelled into him from behind, however, and he fell flat on his face in the corridor, the wind all but knocked out of him. With a sinking feeling, he realised that Qui-Gon was pinning him to the floor. Again.
"Get off me, you filthy stinking Jedi!" he raged, trying to squirm his way free from both captivity and humiliation." You liar! You're all liars, every single one of you, stinking baby-eating Jedi! Get off!"

18 Rated Sites

If you're not over 18 don't bother going to these sites! Trust me on this!!

The Forest of Eshva Great fics, great recommendations, fascinating essays. A must bookmark site for Qui-Gon fans.

Black Rose's Muse Garden The JAOA series is awesome - you've seen Adjustments and Structured Forms on this site - now read the rest :)

The Flambeau Factory You've seen how amazing her writing is from "Crystallise". Try "Meet Another". It's haunting, beautiful, and rather creepy...

Maygra's Musings Well, after reading 'Faithless' you want to read everything else she's written, dont you?

Sleeps With Coyotes Site The woman's a poet! As you can tell from 'Fear'.

Star Wars fan novels!

The Cloister. Nightsister's Trilogy is brilliant. Sumptious prose and a gripping plot which spans from before TPM to after ROTJ. A little dark and vampiric perhaps but well worth it :)

HiperBunny's TPM fic. The Bonds of Choice series. A complex, grownup, fascinating AU novel. Another must read, even if you have to fast forward over the sex!

Here's a taster...
"Speaking of which, did you get a chance to assess Obi-Wan?” Qui-Gon interrupted. “And I do not have emotional problems.”
“Denial, denial. It’s the first sign, you know. And yes, I had a look at young Kenobi. It’s every bit as bad as you reported, but no worse. I don’t see any reason to involve the Council at all. We can handle this.” Kourt twisted one of his curls around his index finger and tugged it thoughtfully.
“That’s what you said nine years ago. ‘We can handle this.’ You said it before that about a great many things,” Qui-Gon reminded his friend.
“And was I ever wrong?” Crowe returned.
“Once. And that’s what has me worried.”
Kourt looked deep into his teacup. “Don’t be like that, Quigs. You knew the situation with Xanatos when you took him on.”
