    Anyway, have you ever wondered what would have happend if she had survived?

    ...How their love would have survived the disapproval of the Council??

    Well then, welcome to the Qui-Gon/Tahl Discussion Thread! [:D], a thread dedicated to Qui-Gon Jinn, maverick of the living force, and the lovely Lady Tahl, renowned for her sharp tongue and quick wit.

    I think Qui-Gon would've broken the rules, like Anakin. He's kind of rebellious that way. Love that about him.

    OOOOHH!! A Qui/Tahl thread!!! YES!!!!

    I think they'd have broken the code secretly, and gone on together if Madam Watson hadn't brought on her wrath on them ;).

    Has anyone here written a Qui/Tahl fic? [face_praying]

    Well, yes, I have, but I think you're already reading it, Lu.

    I actually have never read the books with Tahl in them, so I'm completely making it up. [face_shhh] :D

    I'll refer you to the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/f/b1/24667477]The Qui-Gon Jinn Story Index[/link]. If you search for 'Tahl' then that will lead you to them.

    I like to think that if Tahl had survived that she and Qui-Gon would have figured out a way under the rules to stay in the Order and stay together. Otherwise, they might have left the Jedi which would have been very traumatic for both of them.

    Honestly, I can't see Qui-Gon leaving the Jedi for Tahl. I agree that I think they would have tried to work around the system but given the choice, I don't think he would have left.

    She appears in almost all the Jedi Apprentice books from about number 5-15, when she dies (sob). I made the mistake of reading the 15th book first.. It was so sad, I bawled my eyes out . (sniffles)

    This might be off topic, but I was wondering how Tahl would feel about Shmi/Qui together...and well, I was wondering about the whole Qui/Shmi thing. If anyone wants to know what I think, I have a few words to say to Quiggy?

    ME: Hey, Quiggy!
    Quiggy: What?
    ME: How DARE you pledge your life to Madamoiselle Tahl, and then, after she died, go and flirt with some Qui-stealer!!
    Quiggy: Eeek!
    TAHL: Yeah!
    Quiggy: I thought you were dead!
    TAHL: The author let me come back to life! And now I shall have my revenge!!!! Muahaaa!!!!!
    Quiggy: Mommy..(covers head and curls into fetal position)

    LOL, just a thought...

    ~Mikki :D

    I used to be a Qui-Gon/Shmi fan, but after reading about Tahl, and actually writing a fic about her, I absolutely adored the character and now I'm a Tahl/Qui-Gon fan. Funny how things work out when you start writing about them - you actually get to know them better.

    Yeah, it really is hard to picture Qui-Gon leaving the Jedi Order for Tahl. Or leaving the Jedi Order at all. That's more of a 'what if' scenario I suppose. Like maybe, Qui-Gon getting fired or something. [face_whistling]:p

    But it is just as unlikely that Tahl would give up being a Jedi for Qui-Gon. They both seem very dedicated to the Jedi and would both work very, very hard to keep a relationship down to the level where the Order could 'overlook' it.

    I think that Qui would have to do something REALLY bad to get expelled or kicked out. And, well, yeah, I agree, they probably would've kept it down just enough so the Council didn't notice.

    I was wondering how Tahl would feel about Shmi/Qui together

    I don't think there was a thing between Shmi and Qui-Gon. He was too interested in Anakin to pay any attention to her.

    Anyway, new topic!:

    How would Bant and Obi-Wan feel about their master's relationship if Tahl had survived.

    Gasp! I was just thinking that! I know they found out in JA 16... I think they might have ignored it. i don't know, maybe if they confronted Qui-Gon, he'd have a temper fit.. eek!

    ^ ^ ^

    That's an interesting idea, but I think that Bant and Obi-Wan would be supportive of the masters...I don't know, they seem rather loyal. And besides, I think it'd be pretty hard to ignore if your master were did something that could potentially get him kicked out of the Jedi Order :p.

    Hmmm.. good point. :p I wonder just how loyal they are; how far will they let it go?

    Are they teenagers at that time? Because, you know, most teenagers would probably be mortified and see Tahl and Qui-Gon as making complete fools of themselves.


    Bant: "Oh no, they were kissing, Obi-Wan! That was a kiss!"
    Obi-Wan: "No way! My master would never do that."
    Bant (brisling): "As if my master would. Your master must've made her."
    Obi-Wan: "They were not kissing!" And after a brief silence, groaning: "Why can't they just act their age?"
    Bant: "Why can't they be like all the other masters? Everybody else has a normal master."
    Obi-Wan (a little bitter): "Welcome to my world."

    LOL!!! That was funny..

    I wonder, if they got married, what Bant and Obi's reactions would be..

    Qui: Tahl, will you marry me?
    (Bant and Obi are being naughty and eavesdropping)
    Bant: DID YOU HERE THAT?!
    Obi Wan: Yup?
    Bant: I TOLD YOU SO!!!
    Obi Wan: Ouch.. my ears? They must be drunk.
    Bant: Hello?! They?re drinking APPLE JUICE!!
    Obi Wan: Well.. I know something you don?t know..
    Bant: What?
    Obi Wan: Quiggy?s sweetheart?s having Mace?s kid! And Quiggy himself?s the dad of this blonde-kid called Anakin who?s gonna take over my life in ten years!!
    Bant: Ohh.. God. (faints)

    I could see Tahl and Qui quietly having a relationship under the Council's nose - in fact, I wrote such a one shot.

    Qui went off the deep end because of Tahl's death so shortly after they came to a full realization of their love - had not such an event intervened at such a time, they would probably have found a way to integrate love into their Jedi lives - but I think it would have impacted Obi more than Bant - Obi always seemed to come after Tahl and everyone else to Qui.

    Oh gosh - plot bunnied myself :oops: - look for a short story in a few months.

    [face_laugh] So was yours


    Really? I SOOO need to read some of the JA books. I hope they'll be here soon.



    That would be great. I still have to read most that's on here, but more is always better :D


    (and edited again to catch a flagrant typo; hope I have them all now)

    Okay. (Smiles)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Obi : Maaaaasterrr...
    (Qui is in the middle of climbing out the window)
    (Qui freezes): What?
    Obi (grins): Are you going to meet Master Tahl?
    Qui: N-no..
    Obi(still grinning): No? I?d better tell her you?ve gone to meet someone more attractive.. say, Master Gallia, maybe? Or the Shmi lady?
    Qui (Turns red): My affairs are none of your business!
    Obi (pouts): But you?re my Master! I?m supposed to take care of you!
    Qui: It?s the other way around.
    Obi (sweetly): Then, I suppose you can help me with my newest kata ?right now!
    Qui (looks at Obi) (looks at window) (looks back at Obi) : Do I haaave to?
    (Tahl?s voice sounds from below) : Hey, Qui, will you hurry up?
    Obi (shoves Qui aside and leans out the window) :He?s busy. And plus, he doesn?t want to see you anymore because he?s found out that Master Gallia is hot!
    Tahl: Qui?
    Qui: No!
    Obi: Yes!
    Tahl: Nevermind. I?ll go to dinner with Mace instead.
    (Tahl walks away)
    Qui: Obi-Wan Kenobi?
    Obi (sensing danger): What?
    Qui: You are so finished.
    Obi (squeaks): Uh-oh.. Do you really mean that, Master?
    Qui (nods seriously): Yup.
    Obi: Help me, Force.. (faints)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Anyone else got any?

    -Mikki :) (smiles innocently)

    :eek: [face_laugh]


    Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know that I changed the first post..(notice how I highlited according to the color of her eyes...tee hee :D).

    Also I was wondering whether or not people wanted to do writer challenges. So I'm going to have all of you Qui-Gon and Tahl fans out there vote. Just post on this thread whether or not you'd like to have writer challenges.

    It's a-ok with me!

    Just a suggestion/plot bunny: (however weird it is..)

    There could be an Adi-Tahl-Qui love triangle, and Qui has to choose between the two of them : Tahl or Adi?

    -Miks :)
