Elyia - Yes, it was hard for both of them and Qui-Gon did lose someone special. Obi-Wan doesn't necessarily like politics here either, but this seems to be where the Force has led. obi-ew - Yes, to both. Glad the idea is interesting. Jedikma - Qui-Gon did his best. You will get to see a little more about the Order soon. TrinityDay - Yes, not something you imagine him doing. And probably still not where he thought he'd end up in this AU. ithesock - I still love the phrase "quivering with possibilities" Yes, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are on good terms. And yes, there is much going on. maychorian - Yes, Qui became his guardian. I hope to add more glimpses into the past as this moves along. Of course this makes me wonder what other senators have managed to make their way into this AU. LuvEwan - I am glad you are enjoying this; I am having fun writing it. The flashback was gutting. I really enjoyed the imagery and emotion you described, as well as the relationship that was forged between Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon. Thanks. I wanted to relate that they have been through a lot together.
