I've been enjoying the conversation you've all been having about Obi-Wan's fatherly side. It's something I've thought about a lot, and I'm exploring the idea in a novel-length fanfic I'm writing now. He's a good teacher and a gentle man and it seems like fatherhood would come to him naturally. You know, if the movies had been produced in the order of Ep. 1- Ep. 6 rather than backwards, like they are, it seems a natural choice to have Obi-Wan himself raising Luke on Tatooine, rather than giving him away to complete strangers he knows nothing about. The only problem is that then Luke wouldn't have a mother, but I know we can all think of A/U situations in which Obi-Wan would find a certain someone willing to hide out on Tatooine with him for a few decades.
