    solojones: Okay. ;) ;) That sap comment has me thinking of all sorts of evil things - plot bunnies, to be precise. :eek: Bad you for doing that to me. 8-}

    PrincessPadme: I'm glad you decided to take a chance - and liked it, of course. ;) :D LOL, you're right about Obi-Wan, he can be so rule-bound. :p Anyway - thank you. [face_blush] Not sure what else to say. ;) I'm glad it feels real, that you can really 'see' it happening. :) I'll probably try to write in this tonight, so we'll see how quickly I update. :)

    Very interesting story! I'm normally an A/P purist, but I admit that the romantic in me is sometimes intrigued by the occasional plausible Obidala plot. You've done an excellent job of keeping them in character as they are slowly drawn towards one another. I'm looking forward to the next post!

    *sighs* Oh, I loved it, Obaona. [face_love] It was so beautiful, so light - which is really weird, when you think about it. The juxtaposition of light amid darkness was really profound in this - a powerful metaphor for... something I can't think of right now, but something noble that connects to human nature, and the need to have hope regardless of the circumstances - the need to rise above, regardless of how thick the darkness.

    It probably won't be long before they really do fall in love - and I don't think I've ever before read a fic where this occurred after the Clone Wars. In short, you're brilliant, Obaona, truly, and I hope you'll have more for us very soon. [face_mischief]

    I know sometimes there are plot bunnies that just cannot be ignored, I'm glad you didn't ignore this one obaona. :p

    Great story! And very dark, in more ways than one! [face_laugh] This is an interesting twist on Obidala, very different, IMO. I like where it's going and looking forward to another update! Great work.

    Another great chapter. I partly liked the way you're showing them gradually becoming physically and emotionally closer as they rely upon each other to stay sane... Sad, and very well done.

    Reihla: Thank you! :D Yeah, I'm letting things progress however it feels natural, and it seems to be working. ;) I hope to have an update within a few weeks. (I know that's a while, but this is also finals time for me.) :)

    Fate: [face_blush] I really don't know what to say to that. [face_blush] Thank you, I'm glad you think it's so good. Definitely feeling pressure for the next post, though. :eek: It'll be a relatively long ;) time before they fall in love, actually. And it doesn't happen quickly or easily. [face_mischief] Certainly don't expect it within the next chapter. ;)

    AERYN_SUN: Thanks! :D I'm glad, too, honestly. ;) It's been fun. Darkly fun. [face_mischief]

    Obi-Wan21: LOL, yes. :p I hadn't thought of it that way until all you readers did, but yep. :p Thank you, and I hope to update (relatively) soon. :)

    jedi_keladry: Thanks. :)

    Burkie: LOL! :p I don't know. Probably after finals, which is not this week, but the week after. I know that's a while, but - it's finals. [face_worried]

    Darth_Lex: Thank you. :D Yeah, gradual is the name of the game here. :p I starting to feel like it's getting that tension, too, which is weird, because it's these two characters. :eek: Even though I'm writing it . . . :p

    Lady-Kenobi: Thank you. :)

    *grins* I know the feeling. ;) But don't worry - I'm sure whatever it is will be just as wonderful. I'll just brace myself for the darkness, and wait patiently. [face_mischief]

    Wow Obaona! I clicked ;) not knowing what to expect and I found a wonderfully dark story!

    You are doing great showing how Obi-Wan and Padme would react under these extreme circumstances. The psychological torture their undergoing at Palpatine's hands is horrible, but you can really see their strength of character in all of this. Great job! :)

    jedi_keladry: Thank you. [face_blush] But it'll be more worthy of being on the first page when it's actually updated again. :p

    TheFallen: Celt! :eek: *faints* *stirs weakly* [:D] Thank you! :D

    sdhfs: Thank you. :D

    tangled_sphere: Thank you! :D And thank you for clicking! :p I'm glad you like it, and think it's well-done. I'm honestly surprised but utterly delighted that I've gotten such a positive response. It's been fun to write (will start writing again when the semester is over), and I hope you enjoy the rest. :D



    To Readers In General: [:D] to you all. ;) I noticed this was nominated in a few things, with one actually enough to go through. :eek: Thank you! @};-
