    This was such a great story, I really enjoyed reading it. I've been printing out each chapter so I could read while sitting in various waiting rooms, so much better than three year old copies of Ladies Home Journal. ;) This wasn't exactly a happy ending, but neither was it a sad one. I think hopeful is the best word I could apply and it fitted the tone of the story.

    I especially like the lines, "A gentle nod as he folded the stone into his palm. He craved its familiarity." It makes me think that just as he is glad to have the stone back, he would also like to have Qui-Gon back in his life in some way.

    Looking forward to the sequel. :)

    Hi RRK!

    Just delurking to say THANK YOU !

    Your characterizations are vivid and realistic, particularly their emotional responses. I like your descriptions too, they move the story along.

    I am looking forward to the sequel. But am curious to see that Obi-Wan didn't realize his riverstone had been damaged. I am assuming it cleaved in two when Obi-Wan healed Qui-Gon's mortal wound. Perhaps it was even the conduit that allowed the Obi-Wan to channel the Force successfully in healing?

    Thanks also for the teasers.... Now what will I read every morning with my lattes?

    Sounds like you missed one of the books of temple ghosts. In it, it explains that Obi-Wan deliberately left the stone in his old room after the "betrayal,". In anger and part denial, Qui-Gon threw it against the wall and it shattered.

    (muttering) paper, pen...must find pen...ahah! (notes down, 'To Walk A Deadly Path')

    "Can you cook?"
    "I?m not really sure."
    "I like the cafeteria,"
    LOL!

    This isn't a fic - it's a saga in itself.

    It's got something for everyone;
    emotional turmoil
    whirlwind plot
    'cliffies' (no matter how much u might hate them - they're fun)
    constantly developing characters
    food for thought...

    (who's thinking about setting up an AUP gusher thread to complement the speculation thread? ;))

    ...humour, angst, adventure...the list goes on.
    In other words, I'm rating this as one of my fav fics EVER - if not fav :D
    (bows to u) I'll be hanging around...

    and if u don't post the sequel within a month - I'm personally hunting u down (toothy grin)

    Wow! Sorry it's taken me (once again!) so long to respond, rrk! And the unfortunate thing is that I still have to write an Othello essay by Tuesday.... :(

    Going back to the 2nd to last post....

    I loved the line "Our paths have diverged". I thought that said it all about how Obi-Wan feels, and how things have changed from what they once were. I thought it was about time that Qui-Gon went after him for once and got things out in the open! It was also interesting how Qui-Gon noticed Obi pulling his robe tighter - The action did not go unnoticed.. While he's noticed it before, it seems more pointed this time because for once he's taken the time to notice what that means. "I needed you to help guide me back toward the right path. I was your padawan and I needed help." I LOVED THAT LINE!!! I was like - yes!!!! finally you told him off! It was an amazingly sad line as well.... :_| Like everyone else, I am hopeful that Qui-Gon returning the stone is good news, however at this point it seems that they've more agreed to let it all go, particularly when Qui-Gon asked Obi-Wan to stop "one last time" or something to that effect.

    In the last post I loved the cooking line - lol!! :D :D I am certainly looking forward to what is in store for Obi-Wan and Bali - that teaser was a killer! And I thought I was going to have trouble waiting for Ep 2..... :eek:

    Just thought I would let everyone know that I posted a question thread. I am looking for ideas for the Book Two title.

    I'm stuck and I hate the title: To Walk a Deadly Path.

    Please post any ideas here Title.

    Thanks.

    OK, OK. So I couldn't wait. I just had to come over here to find this. Couldn't wait on ff.n for your denouement.

    Marvelous, lovely story - a real tearjerker.

    Can't wait for the next installments.

    And it's nice to discover that I was already familiar with your work. I loved "Unravelled".

    Keep up the good work.

    This is such an astonishing piece.

    I've read it twice now in less than 12 hours and cannot think of anything else.

    The pain, loss and alienation that burn from these cyberpages are incredibly realistic and deeply felt.

    You can't help but love the characters and feel for them and understand how much the depth of feeling between them roars with such loudness that they lose contact with each other.

    And they're JEDI. They're supposed to be above and beyond these things.

    But they are also mortal and you feel it with every ache of Obi-Wan's body, Qui-Gon's every painful realization, Bant's deep-hearted overtures, Anakin's insecurities and Bali's fearful hopes.

    A masterwork.
