Recs and Reviews

The hate I have for this story is so great. I'm recing it becuz it is a good read strong characterizations and description. It's much like read a good fantasy novel only with scrolling instead of page turning. The thing is I hate this Obi-Wan hate him with fiery burning passion of ten thousand exploding suns.....On the other hand I love Qui-Gon he is just so awesome. Obi-Wan is telling the story but it is a good story told very well. It's also a long story a very longggg story but it pulls you in and keep you interested so it gets rec even though I want to strangle this Obi-Wan and feed him to the hounds of the underworld. The hate I have for Boaen is indescribable. I really don't like the way sex is used in this fic but I have learned that what bothers me doesn't bother the majority of people so don't let my dislike turn you away this is a very well write story and that characters are so real you can hate them..or love them.[1]


The story was published as a fanzine in 2002. Color cover by TACS and lots of interior color artwork. The sequel was also published as a zine.
