    Summary: A series of snapshots in the lives of Obi Wan and Qui Gon
    This first one explores a brief mushy moment in a stressful mission (Originally it was meant to remain just that...buuut, I have a stray bunny that wants to see something beside the inside of my head- so it would be v. encouraging to see if anyone's interested)

    Notes: This is my first attempt at an SW fanfic, so any responses - be they critisims or comments- would be appreciated. Thank You :)

    Title With You
    Author Stella Ripple
    Genre Mush
    Timeframe JA obi is 17
    Notes Just a lil moment between my favourite Master and Padawan
    Disclaimer Nope, still not mine *sigh*


    ?Tell me Padawan,? Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn put forth conversationally, ?how is it we always end up in these...ah, situations??

    All around them, blaster bolts sped through the hangar bay creating a multicoloured queue of lights above their heads, whilst every now and then, the ground shook and metal vibrated as the energy canons fired another round.

    Said padawan looked up briefly from the blaster he was reloading. ?Just lucky, I guess,? cerulean eyes sparkled mischievously; he was well aware of his master?s stance on the subject of luck. ?Or perhaps it?s the Will of The Force.?? he continued his teasing, accurately mimicking his master?s sombre intonation on the last four words.

    Qui-Gon was forced to smother a laugh, but was unable to completely hide the slight twitch on his upper lip, ?Brat.? He grumbled half- heartedly. Taking stock of the laughing eyes set in the dishevelled face so near his own, his gaze softened and he added, more seriously, ?Where would I be without you??

    ?Probably enjoying the comfort of the royal suites, with His Most Excellent Noble Prince of Pompousness at your beck and call.? Obi Wan replied half jokingly and half guiltily.

    His mentor was quick to notice the trickle of shame that had filtered through his apprentice?s playful tone.

    In a rare display of ?spontaneous emotion, Qui-Gon grabbed the padawan braid that trailed the youth?s shoulders and held it in a strong grip.

    ?Padawan mine, never, never doubt for a moment that I would rather spend these months with you on this Force-forsaken rock, than an eternity amidst the luxuries of the Chancellor?s Palace without you.?

    Gone was the serene Jedi, in his place was a man of intense emotion and flashing eyes, the eyes of man of passion, of a man who knows what it is to love, the eyes of a father.

    Obi Wan found himself unable to speak in the face of the unadulterated love that came shining through the usually stoic visage, he didn?t?t need to. His expressive eyes, that for a moment became a bit too bright, maybe from the reflections of blaster bolts that surrounded them, said it all, and more.

    That was beautiful!

    Very sweet, the Master's love for the Padawan, which of course would be equal to the love of a parent for their child.

    Wonderful first fic! =D=

    I can't wait for more from you!

    Please PM me with updates if you can! If you can't, I'll keep an eye out. :D [:D]

    Star_Drifter: Thank you soooo much for being the first to review and put to rest the fears and second guessings of a paranoid newbie [:D]
    I?m glad you liked the mush- I was afraid I might have gone overboard and Mary-Sue-ish

    JOINME: I?m glad you could see the love between Master and Padawan- which is what I hope to explore in this series. Thank you for the encouraging words and of course I?ll PM you (but have a little patience with the newbie- I had to go away and figure out how to after your review) :)

    Dianethx: Thanks, from you that means a lot

    Jennifer_Lyn: Thank You. Hopefully the next post will be up soon, its all planned out- now for the easy part- I just need to write it :D

    VaderLVR64: I?ve been a Lurker of your fics for sometime now, and I?m honoured such a talented writer enjoyed my little attempt

    corellian-jedi: Yay! a mush lover! *hands over a freezer* Please revive yourself in time for the next post ;)
    By the way, I love your stories Mirage and A circle in the water- can?t wait for the updates- please PM me when you update either, if you can

    Thanks to everyone for giving a confused newbie some warm fuzzy feelings [:D] and motivations to continue this further and for reducing me to somewhere between being a puddle and a hysterically laughing maniac 8-}

    Cute, cute, cute! I can't wait to see what else you've got in store for us; this was just so adorable! I love little moments between Obi and Qui like this, and it was well-written. I love their banter in this, how they're able to make jokes despite the danger around them.

    Bravo! Hope you update soon!

    That was wonderful! :) I enjoy reading fics with Qui and Obi having a familial relationship. Great job with this. I can't wait to read more! :)

    Gotta love mush. [face_love] More please. [face_batting]

    I have a question. Why are they using blasters and not 'sabers? Just curious.

    It is always nice to see a bit of mush where Obi and Qui are concerned.

    You have done very well in capturing the moment and sincerity between (Father and Son)

    Well Done=D=

    Layren: Thank you, glad you liked it.

    Maychorian: I love mushy moments Me too!! :D

    Stormqueen: Thank you, I?m glad you like the little moment. I?m still trying to get used to the characters, so it?s a relief to know I haven?t made them too OOC. Hopefully you?ll like the next shot just as much!

    LilQui-Gon: Glad you liked it. Hope the next one suits just as well.

    BottledUpInside: I?m glad you think so. I know it is a little too short, hopefully the next shot will be a little worker, not sure when it?ll be up though, sorry!

    Baster: Thank you, I?m glad you liked my first attempt at the Obi/Qui relationship.

    Bek: I?m sooo glad you enjoyed those bits, I really liked writing them, but was a little afraid I?d gone overboard (is there such a thing as too much mush?) :D

    PadawanKaterina: Yes you do, and I?m very glad YOU do! Thanks for dropping by. About the blasters and not sabres thing, partly because it felt right at the time :D but the main reason is explained in another story I?m thinking about, and since I may never get it out, I might as well say the key word is ?undercover? ;)

    Gilkenny: Yay! Another mush lover- can?t have enough of those! Thank you, I?m relieved to see my portrayal of the master/pad wan relationship is being so well received :D



    Thanks to everyone for the wonderful, encouraging reviews. I'm working on the next post, but due to some tech problems and an increasing amount of schoolwork :( it may take a while.
