Recs and Reviews
Reasons for recommending: I like silly stories, a fact that should surprise absolutely no one anywhere, right? But silly is so damned hard to pull off successfully (I know, I've tried) -- too far in one direction and it becomes ludicrous, too far in another and it becomes just stupidly boring. So when I find a story that manages silly so beautifully, I tend to read and keep re-reading forever. The setup for this story is fairly simple -- the boyz are on a mission to a planet where the inhabitants are felinoids. One of them, a daughter of a fairly high-ranking somebody, manages to get Obi-Wan to drink some type of potion that suppresses his civilized humanity and makes him behave like... well, a cat. The idea of Obi-Wan slinking around like a cat, stretching his whole body, refusing to take a bath, well, it just cracks me up. Poor Qui-Gon has to deal with the situation until the potion wears off, and it's pure torture for the master who so desperately wants his padawan. There were moments when I laughed out loud in all four stories, though the latter two weren't quite as good as the first, since the novelty had worn off. The characterizations are excellent and the story as a whole is just a lot of fun to read, which really should be no surprise for those who have read Elayna's stuff.
Master Elayna... Her Alternative Universes are utterly convincing, her writing is romantic and her ideas are always original, Master Elayna can do no wrong. The stories in The Jedi Kitties Playpen are infectuously cute, lovingly indulgent and you'd have to be anti-feline not to be affected by her meowing Obi-Wan.
