:shock: :shock: in earlybird-obi-wan's fics, people lose the Force but it's usually after a catastrophic life-threatening illness, and the Healers are able to "awaken" and rejuvenate the midichlorians, which were damaged or hindered. This doesn't look to follow something physical, it's probably psychological, which wouldn't surprise me, given all this turmoil Kalinda's in. I'm glad she has some clarity about not wanting or being able to go back. Gives some hope for Stone then. Obi-Wan's declaration was terrific, just late. I at your nudge to lurkers at the end.
