Twenty Questions is a Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan story by Annie Carr and Emrin Alexander.

Summary: When our heros become housebound due to a planet-wide storm, questions help them pass the time and reveal some surprising answers.

Recs and Reviews

In this one, Qui and Obi are stuck in a cabin for a month while a storm system passes, and in an effort to keep himself from going out of his mind from unrequited lust, Obi-Wan digs up a magazine left behind in the cabin and asks his Master to take a 20 Questions quiz. It's cute and funny and sweet, contains some wonderful UST moments, and made for a great introduction to the fandom. And I still think it's adorable, going back and reading it now. There's also something nice about hearing about the habits these two have when they're not wrapped in robes and trying to be serene and untouchable.[1]
Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are trapped in a cabin by a month-long storm. Their only source of entertainment? A Cosmo-like magazine with a test called 'How Well Do You Know Your Closest Companion?' I've been reading some fairly heavy fic of late, so I was really happy to stumble across this piece of fluff. The questions are awesome (and very Cosmo-like), the answers are interesting, and the banter is entertaining. Ideal for anyone in need of a light, fluffy story.[2]
This is a classic! Obi and Qui, snowed in together, with tons of UST (unresolved sexual tension). Yummy! The ending will leave you breathless, or at least, panting. Must read![3]
Technically, you could possibly call it a PWP. But it's not...really. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are trapped in a house for month. They find a magazine to entertain themselves and...well, porn happens. Of course! It's sweet, wonderful cliche!fic with brilliant use of dialogue.[4]
First published in the Living Force zine. It's a short, sweet story in which our heroes are stuck on a planet with nothing to do but a quiz in a lifestyle magazine. It sounds a bit fluffy and silly, but I just love it, perhaps because I can't resist a scenario where Qui-Gon is asked personal questions :)[5]
20 Questions -- Annie Carr and Emrin Alexander -- Obi and Qui find one of *those* quizzes. Thank goodness.[6]
