I HATE THE JEDI COUNCIL! The Jedi order would be better off if they kicked everyone who holds a position in the Council in the prequels out of their position and installed a bunch of new people.
I know this story is AU but its so in the character that I see in Yoda and Mace Windu that it rekindles the fire I've been nursing since the season 5 finale. Also it highlights the main reason I don't like Obi-Wan. He's the perfect Jedi if the Council told him to jump off the Council spire he would. If Yoda and Windu had told Anakin that Ahsoka was going to destroy everything and that the best way to prevent it was to kill her there would be know way Anakin would go along with it but because Obi-Wan's the quote "perfect Jedi" he'd go along with it. This story is on the top three cruelest things Obi-Wan's ever done, the other two being something that happens in a story called "Come on, Get up, Let me see your bruises" that's on this website and another is a quote from a published book which is as follows:
PADME: My feelings are my own affair!
OBI-WAN: Not when they involve a Jedi.
Think about it, kinda heartless right?
As for killing Anakin because they had visions where he destroyed everything, Anakin has a free will anything he does in his life is his own decision he wasn't destined to become a Sith he chose to become a Sith. Visions of the future (which is always in motion as a certain Jedi pointed out) are not a valid reason to kill anyone much less a thirteen year old boy.
Anyway, this is a really, really good story and that's why I wrote this long review complaining about the Jedi. I'm not yelling at you I'm yelling at the characters (you know you're a serious geek when you think you can reprimand the characters). This is really, really good. Two thumbs up.

A wonderful story that had me feeling quite sad by the end. Beautifully written, I salute you're ability! If only they had thought of this in canon... Wouldn't have made for much a movie though...

Oh my God. This... Oh my God! I cannot believe... Yoda? And Obi-Wan? Maybe Palpatine was right about the Jedi... Molto Bene, you have successfully shocked the bejeebers out of me. This is the most moving fic I have ever read. Congratulations. I might just go curse the Jedi Order now, but well done.

I don't know what should I write about it. The most revered and respected Jedi Masters from the Council plus sentence of death for innocent child. Anakin did nothing wrong yet!
And all these LIES. Anakin had trust for his Master. He believed in his words. He knew something is wrong, but he rolled his sleeve up... /sniff sniff/ Because he loved Obi Wan.
I hope all Jedi will be punished for it. The Force created Anakin, he had his destiny, now it is nothing.
The don't know who Sidious is, but THEY DO KNOW Anakin will be Jedi Order's death, really?
Easy solution, yeeeeaaaa, kill the teenager and everything will be okay...
I want congratulate You for Your idea for this story. It's powerful. I was reading it many times. Maybe You should write sequel for it?
Poor Anakin. I dislike Windu and Yoda. I feel sorry for Kenobi. He should'nt agree for his Padawan's death!
Damned Jedi Code.

No... what is it? I can't stop reading! Your story is wonderful, but - it is not a Jedi way! Anakin is a child! He did nothing wrong. He trusted his Master. Poor boy...I don't understand Obi Wan, I disagree with Yoda and Windu...
It's very strange: all these visions were about Anakin. Jedi Masters - JEDI MASTERS! - found a solution - death penalty for innocent child. I want ask about Darth Sidious, what with him?
He is Sith Lord, he is quilty NOW. Naboo's blockade, Qui Gon's death, evil plots and schemes.
If Palpatine's FATE was death from the Vader's hands... What happens next? Lord Vader does'nt exist...I am very curious...
I hope You understood my weak English. I want congratulate You. Maybe You should write a sequel?
Poor Ani. He trusted his Master. He was innocent. This was'nt Jedi Way! Echchch...

*Sob.* They killed a child. No matter how "necessary," Anakin was still a beautiful, lovable child. The real tragedy in all this is that, for all their insight into the future, Yoda, Mace, (and Obi-Wan) could not pierce the present to find the true
"architect of it all," Darth Sidious.

What a way to rip someones heart out

Despite being fairly certain that I read this on the Dead Padawan Society, today was the day to reread it. Obi-Wan grieved and then went on in this chilling AU, releasing his vow to Qui-Gon (and good for him that he acknowledged his anger over the council chamber abandonment scene).
