    I was definitely making stuff up... I'm sure the order doesn't require that much perfection, but it's the way Obi-Wan lives it and suffers it. A dysfunctional order asking a lot of its dysfunctional members, what could possibly go wrong!?
    Thanks a lot for tagging along all the way, reading your reactions was a joy! :-3

    I'm still trying to formulate a response from my current space of "I love how you've written this" and "grumpy that you didn't show my Obi-wan ripping Palpatine's head off".

    I might be a while...

    It's alright, I'm just happy you read along and enjoyed most of it one way or another :-D
    No one seems to appreciate me ending this before the confrontation! Maybe one day... But I didn't want to... Originally this fic was only about the first chapter. I was badgered into continuing it, but TBH it only became about the consequences of his fall. I didn't feel like I had to continue past the point where he recovers some hope.

    Excellent story! I love the ending. I'm sure it doesn't go the way Obi-Wan thinks, or hopes it will, but in the end he made his decision.

    Ooooh, that is amazing to hear! I think you might well be the very first one to ever explicitly like the open ending, so I'm very happy to hear you say that!
    ( ꈍᴗꈍ)
    The benefit of such ending is that you're right, it goes as you say. And it can go as anyone else prefers... He definitely made his choice, and personally I feel like it's proof that he never *truly* fell. He brushed the dark side, sure, broke his code, sure... but he's still a self sacrificing good guy, who was ready to run at the big bad Sith alone and weaponless, like he had no other choice. Because Obi-Wan can't really do anything else...

    I don't always have to have everything tied up with a shiny bow. :D I think you did a great job leaving it where the reader's own imagination has so many places to go. For me, that is also a prefect ending. So, congrats on that. Looking forward to what you publish next. :)
