I'm still working through your updates I loved this chapter and this section: ?He was never arrogant!? The protest burst out of him without thought, the words of a master feeling his apprentice was being wronged. ?Headstrong, reckless, yes; tart-tongued because to be otherwise betrayed the tender heart within because ?? because a tender heart was too easily bruised. So a shell of sarcasm, of dry wit became the means to conceal that which lay within. stuck with me, it is so true of Obi-Wan, and I love that Qui-Gon still defended him. The ending of this chapter was powerful too, that Jedi can't cry - wonderful! Thanks so much!
