Recs and Reviews

If you held a gun to my head and told me to name a favorite TPM story, this would be it. It's a short story, barely a couple of pages long, but in that space torch distills the ideas of Jedi love and beauty, in the context of a moment of romance that still makes me sigh in adoration every time I read it.[1]
Only two pages long, but contains a galaxy's worth of love and devotion. (5 k) [2]
If I had to pick a favorite Q/O story, this would be it. Short, sweet, and incredibly romantic, it sums up everything I love best about the Qui/Obi relationship.[3]
This fic will take you a couple of minutes to read so do so right now! It's just a flash of a beautiful relationship.[4]
Okay. Words are just not enough to express my love of this fic. It's short, it's simple, it's -- exquisite. Qui-Gon is asked to a woman that just can't see the beauty beneath the scars.[5]
Some stories are just so memorable that regardless of their length (not that I'm complaining) I have to rec them just because I thought about the story so much after I read it. This holiday I read two stories that stuck with me long after I was done reading. They balance each other in a way and so I'm rec'ing them together. First is by Torch. There are so many good things to say about this author I hardly know where to begin and therefore heartily commend you to go to her homepage and read read read. For a poignant and tender, yet I must say somewhat short vignette, read The Entirely Beautiful. Wow. It's just amazing and I carried images from it around in my head for days. And, if you're still feeling just a tad melancholy from the holiday flurry read Illuminate by Kate. Both stories are short and sweet and tender and thought provoking. (I know it looks like I'm bitter about the short thing, but I'm not, I'm just saying.)[6]
