The Forest of Eshva was a personal fanfic and recommendation site. It also had a gallery with photo art.

Description from The Borrowed Ones:
Great fics, great recommendations, fascinating essays. A must bookmark site for Qui-Gon fans. [1]

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 :)"
  • Sweet as a Little Pie - Some thoughts about dressing the Jedi in 'sexy' feminine outfits
  • Whatever happened to Mary Sue? - Eshva's thoughts on some of the new directions that "Mary Sue" has taken
  • Why "just don't read it" doesn't always work - Some thoughts about avoiding (or not) stories that squick the reader
