The Finer Shades of Why is a Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan story by The Rose and Kalujinn.

Summary: Yet another slave!Obi story, but with a bit of a twist, we hope.

A Note from Master Rose:

This whole thing started several months ago, when Padawan Kalujinn was at work and bored. She wanted me to tell her a story and she sent the following as a starting point, curious to see what I would make from it.
"See, Master?" the blonde-haired boy said excitedly as he dragged the tall man forward by one hand. "There he is! Just like I dreamed. Can we buy him?"
It seemed like a simple enough thing, and it didn't take me long to write her back with the beginning of a story. Little did I know where it would lead. But, over the course of writing this, we have both grown as writers, I believe, and have amazed ourselves with the similarity of our story-telling styles. Here, then, is the result of many, many hours of work. We hope it brings you half the pleasure we had writing it. (Translation: Get out your vibrators, girls!) Much of the credit for this story must go to Muse!Yoda. He never gets any credit, but he definitely directed this fic towards its conclusion. "Listen to me, no one does. Well, listen you will, Master Rose and Padawan Kalu! A tale I must tell you . . . "

Recs and Reviews

The events of TPM are played out much differently in this AU in which Obi-Wan was never Qui-Gon's apprentice. This is a story about destiny, wrong choices and second chances. It has angst, plot, love and lust, and if you enjoy Obi peril, it has that too.[1]
