So sad but so very powerful.
I loved the story of Obi-Wan racing Anakin in the halls, and dragging the chair into his room to tell him bedtime stories.
There was also a terrible stillness in the prose. Like Obi-Wan maybe ... )
It was beautifully sad.

This was...nothing short of incredible. Pronker sent me over here, otherwise I might not have found it, but...wow. I'm just blown away - not just because of the sheer power of this story, or your incredible style, or the agony of it, but also because I've started writing a full-length fic based on the same premise called "From The Ashes" - if Anakin had jumped after Padme on Geonosis. (Although I'm certainly not brave enough to have killed him...)
Thank you ever so much for writing this - it's wonderfully poignant, incredibly written, and just plain amazing. I was literally on the brink of tears.

I'm surprised I never found this before, since you wrote it years ago! I was thinking of doing an AU of Geonosis with Anakin disobeying Obi-Wan, so i wanted to see if there were fics out there and found yours.
I'm so glad I did, too!
It's really amazing, and so well written! The idea that Anakin's love of Obi-Wan drove him to be something Obi-Wan wouldn't have wanted him to be was so heartbreaking. And the way you described that scene in the hangar was perfect! And poor Padme, along for the ride and powerless to help Anakin. It almost sounds like it destroyed her at the end too.

Whoa. Craziness! Obi-Wan needs to come in his blue apparition form-y thing-y and tell Anakin to stop. That would work, right?

Good Job! You have a talent for this kind of writing. I was crying by the end. I liked how you had Anakin tell Padme about the memories he had with Obi Wan. I look foward to reading more of your work!

Such excellence! High praise to you, very good! I loved it, I'm off to read some more of your stories :D

And here I am again - to refute the stupid twit. Does she really think she fools anybody, just by signing my name? I couldn 't write that badly if I tried. :) Not to worry, LE. You're still the same gifted individual, with the wonderful imagination, and your work remains a treat for the senses.
For future reference, if the review is not Signed by me, it's not mine. I almost never post anonymously, believing that it's in bad taste and an act of craven cowardice to flame and run!
And I thank you for the PM to let me know about this. If anyone else out there is getting anonymous flaming reviews, purporting to be from me, please let me know.
Ciao for now.

Thought I wasn't gonna read it, didn't ya? ;) No, that was very good. I was very intrigued to see what you had done with the idea, and yes I can see it going just like that. Poor Padme, I liked how you did it from her perspective. It's almost enough to make one think love *isn't* always good! I liked Anakin's memories of Obi-Wan, that was terribly sweet. "Maybe he wanted it to be your secret." That would be just like Obi-Wan. Just one thing, you have nearly the entire story in italics, it's rather a strain on the eyes. You are so fantastic to take one little idea and turn it into such a well-developed story. Truly envious.
