Great fics, great recommendations, fascinating essays. A must bookmark site for Qui-Gon fans. 
Rants and Recs
- TPM: Qui-Gon friendly slash recommendations - Eshva's TPM story recommendations. "Recs pages are most useful when you have some idea what kind of things the recommender likes. To put it bluntly - I like Qui-Gon. This means that my favourite stories are those where he is portrayed in a positive way (no moron or bastard stories and no grovelfic). My tastes also tend to run to the sweet and mushy, and I generally prefer happy endings :)"
