In my time here on JC (about five months now) i've only seen two or three Obi-Evil fics, none of which in recent history. This leads me to ask- do you think Obi-Evil is a plausible character? As I see it, most people seem to think of Obi-Wan being an ideal Jedi, and nothing more. But everyone has issues deep inside if your peel off enough layers. I've done thinking, and I've got two different AU avenues to explor Obi-Evil... 1. Qui-Gon did not select Obi-Wan to be his apprentice At 13, Obi-Wan was quite old to be selected as a Padawan Learner, and Qui-Gon truly was his last chance. But what if Qui-Gon did not select him? It isn't hard to imagine what could have happened if a 13 year-old, untrained, undisciplined and unguided rogue Jedi apprentice had been unleashed upon the galaxy. 2. Maul killed Qui-Gon, and got away. This is one I keep thinking about. What if Maul got away? Would Obi-Wan pursue him, hunt him down in some mad plot for revenge? But revenge isn't a Jedi thing... or is it? Did Obi-Wan kill Maul because it had to be done, or out of vengeance for his fallen master? This really gets me thinking about what potentially could have happened. What if 10 years later (AoTC time frame) Obi-Wan finally catches up to Maul, and the two fight with Dooku or Palps in the background trying to use Obi-Wan's thirst for revenge to turn him? hmmm.... ("strike me down with all of your hatred, and your journey towards the darkside will be complete!") I'm getting RoTJ flashbacks Thoughts?
