    A/N: The quote at the beginning of this ficlet is not mine. It?s from PM, and thus belongs to Master Lucas.
    Disclaimer: I don?t have any claim on the galaxy of SW. It belongs to masters Lucas and Watson. I only borrow it. No credits or boring U. S. money are being made from this, nor are they sought after.


    Qui-Gon's defiance I sense in you. Need that, you do not. Master Yoda had frowned as he spoke.

    It was well for me, he couldn?t hear the mirthless laugh I kept buried deep inside. I?d heard many accusations in my years as a padawan; some of them sadly true. But to say I had Qui-Gon?s defiance? It was ridiculous. My master and I had disagreed too often over that very thing.

    Yet now, as I sit in this empty room, I think of him, and I cannot bow to Yoda in this.

    My master had defiance, but only in what mattered. He defied corrupt officials. He defied hate-filled warmongers. He defied Sith lords. And yes, he defied the Council; more often than I was comfortable with.

    But his ?defiance? came from his deep-seated awareness of the Force. At the leading of the Force, he would defy even himself. If that is defiance, then I would willingly take a thousand frowns from Yoda, to have it.

    No, Master Yoda, I think. Need that, I do.

    Aludra_Jinnobi,

    Wonderful little piece!

    Being an avid Qui-Gon fan, I really enjoyed this. :)

    Especially:
    'And yes, he defied the Council; more often than I was comfortable with.'

    Way to go!

    Very poignant.

    No, Master Yoda, I think. Need that, I do.

    I heartily agree. Qui's defiance made him a great jedi and I'm glad to see Obi-Wan recognize that.

    Great job on this

    Lovely, touching piece. I could just imagine Qui-Gon smiling from the netherworld of the Force.

    Well done. =D=

    I enjoyed this peek into Obi-Wan's mind. There is a purposeful tone, ending with a whimsical retort to Yoda's judgment.

    I very much enjoyed Obi-Wan's thoughtful recounting of how and why Qui-Gon was sometimes defiant.

    Good job.
