Title: Pieces of Memories: Lily?s Drabbles Author: LilyHobbitJedi Timeframe: During and after TPM Characters: Obi-Wan, Anakin Genre: General, Drama Summary: Obi-Wan reflects on his feelings around the events of TPM. Notes: This is my response for the Ultimate Drabble Challenge. And these are the first drabbles I?ve ever written, I hope you like them. These first five are all based on Obi-Wan?s POV. Pieces of Memories Happy He should be happy. Only hours before Obi-Wan had become a full Jedi Knight and also gained his own Padawan in nine year old Anakin Skywalker. Despite his grief, he was proud of what he accomplished, defeating the Dark Lord who took his Master?s life right before his eyes. Happiness in his life would take time, Obi-Wan knew that. But he knew that one day he would be happy again, one day he would be able to deal with his past. And one day he would think of Qui-Gon without thinking of his tragic death. He was sure of it. Sad At first an incredible sadness overtook him, and it was all Obi-Wan could to keep from bursting out in wet, noisy tears as he watched his Master?s body be licked by the flames that would wipe his image away forever. Qui-Gon was so strong in life, it was only right that he should have a proper funeral. He couldn?t show the incredible sadness that was eating at him though, because his Padawan was watching. Obi-Wan knew that Anakin was sad too, and he would help his Padawan through it. They would move on and one day leave their grief behind. Curious Curious was the best way Obi-Wan could describe his Padawan. Anakin was interesting in everything, once they arrived on Coruscant. For one thing he insisted on exploring the Jedi Temple right away, and it wasn?t long before the boy knew it inside and out. And then of course was his habit of building and repairing droids. It was Anakin?s favorite hobby, and Obi-Wan didn?t stop it because he of how gifted Anakin was. Curiosity was a good thing in many ways, and was a great trait in a future Jedi. It could be Anakin?s greatest fault, but time would tell. Angry There were times when Obi-Wan wondered about the anger that Yoda said Anakin had too much of. The boy had endured so much at a young age, slavery incites bitter feelings and a great deal of pain that can on be expressed through anger. As a slave Anakin learned that anger was a great defense in a merciless world. In a way Obi-Wan knew that Anakin?s anger would never totally evaporate, but he too had faced his own Dark Side. The moment Qui-Gon was killed all Obi-Wan thought of was revenge, but he?d conquered it. Anakin would do the same. Content Contentment was the biggest emotions Obi-Wan sought after his Master died and he was finally able to achieve it. He would no longer dwell on the what ifs or the maybes because this was the path the Force had chosen for him. He was learning more about the Jedi path even as he tried to teach his Padawan right. Obi-Wan knew there would be challenges in the future, but he?d learned to let go. He was moving on in the best way he could, and he found some great contentment in the attempt. Qui-Gon would have wanted it that way.
