    This is going to take place during TPM. Obi-Wan's thoughts, fears, everything you would normally find in a journal.

    Has this been done before?

    Entry: Trials
    Location: Jedi Temple

    Just thought I'd write before Master and I leave. The Council has assigned us yet another mission. We just got back not 12 hours ago. I am now certain they've placed bets to see how long we can last before collapsing. Thank the Force its only going to be a simple negotiation. We're being sent to the planet of Naboo. Several weeks ago, the Trade Federation blockaded the planet to protest the taxation of their trade routes. The viceroy in charge, I think his name is Nute Gunray, is going to be meeting with us. The Council seems certain that it won't take more than a day or two to get a treaty signed. I can only hope. Maybe afterwards we'll be given time to take a retreat. It's been awhile since we were last able to get away, just the two of us. We hardly ever have enough time to just talk like we used to.
    That reminds me. Master thinks I am getting close to being ready for my trials. I have mixed feelings about this latest revelation. I mean, it's what I've been training for since before I can remember. The final step to becoming a Knight is one of the hardest, but most rewarding things in a Jedi's life. But....I'm also hesitant and a bit frightened about it too. Master and I have been constant companions for the past 12 years. He's become the father I never knew. To think of leaving suddenly and not having him there.... Master sensed my distress instantly. He said I still have a few years before that happens and I can't get rid of him that easily. Still, it disturbs me. Like master always says, I must not center on my anxieties, but concentrate on the here and now. I'll have to push away my fears on this matter until another day... Have to go. Master's calling. Don't know how long it'll be until I can write again.

    Obi-Wan

    Thanks for your help, Gimpy. :)

    Nice start Kadi-Wan!

    Can't wait to read more. Good touch with the fact that he's worried about being separated from Qui-Gon. Makes the future that much sadder.

    Great start! Very consistent with his character too, I thought. I liked the bit about Obi-Wan not being able to get rid of Qui-Gon so easily, that he was stuck with him for a few more years. That was funny, but quite sad when you think about what happens. Excellent post! I look forward to more!

    Thanks for your help once again Gimpy. :)

    *********************************************Entry: I have a bad feeling about this
    Location: Trade Federation Droid Control Ship

    We have been waiting for almost an hour now and there is still no sign of the viceroy. When we first landed here, the protocol droid TC-14 said its master would be here shortly. I don't know what time measurment these Neimoidians use, but shortly sure does last awhile. Oh, here's the droid again. Still no sign of the viceroy. Master says it isn't in their nature to take so long. He can sense an unusual amount of fear throughout the ship. I can sense that, but there is something more I can sense. It doesn't have anything to do with the mission, but that is all I am sure of. The rest is elusive. Just out of reach. Could it have to do with the future? I sensed this almost immediately once we were aboard the ship. I told Master about it the moment the droid left us in the conference room. Know what he said? Don't center on your anxieties, keep your concentration on the here and now where it belongs. I swear he can't last one week without saying that. Next to 'Do or do not, there is no try.', it has to be his favorite lecture. Maybe I'll get him a plaque that says it for his next birthday. He could hang it in the common room so even when he is gone, I'll be reminded of it. Back to the subject, Master reassures me that the negotiations will be short. Neimoidians are known cowards throughout the galaxy. Still, I have a bad feeling about this. I-

    Of course, Kadi! Nice job, I like the characerization and Obi's comments about Qui's famous sayings. The abrupt ending certainly ties it into TPM. Looking forward to more! :)

    Can't go a whole week without saying it...

    You've got to wonder, how many times has he heard that?

    Excellent Kadi-Wan! Hope you have more soon!
