|Reviews for A Quiet Conscience Sleeps in Thunder|
| Rht chapter 1 . 11/29/2013
I'm staying at a place far away from my home...I miss the rains back home, the thunder, the crash of the storms that swept through my hometown every month. I miss the rains & the clouds that darkened the skies for days on end. I miss the smell of the rain, the exhilaration of lightning & the brooding fey heaviness of the storm-front.
I wish I was home- amidst the storms...

This fic is incredible. You really captured the characters here. I LOVE your Anakin in this, and I'm blown away how you managed to capture who he is in just one line. Most people seem to think Anakin was an innocent little boy who always loved clinging to people and trying to get attention out of them. While I think Anakin would have killed to get attention, I never really thought he'd go out of his way to drag it out of someone; growing up as a slave would make him more reserved and less likely to want to interact with people or place his trust in them, and you totally got that in one line - amazing!
I love Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan here! As much as I love Obi-Wan and even like Qui-Gon, I normally don't read much of them, but you did so well with them. Qui-Gon is stoic and calm but still caring, and Obi-Wan is great with how he's beating himself up because he's a teenager and a Jedi but still terrified of the storm.
Seriously, I am blown away how you could make such a stark difference between Anakin and Obi-Wan with just one little story - wonderful job!

Ah, yikes at that last line. Good fic!

Many fics portray little!Anakin as, if anything, extra-clingy. Your version-a child who is used to shouldering his burdens alone, sensibly or otherwise-may well be the more reasonable for a child who grew up in slavery.
An interesting second level of symbolism, intentional or incidental: thunderstorms on Coruscant. Even in an ecumenopolis, and with all the technological sophistication the galaxy has to offer, natural forces cannot be held in check. The weather will wreak what havoc it will, and all one can do is try and clean up afterwards.
The sentence structures let the commas get carried away at times, making it difficult to follow the flow of the sentence at first glance. You repeat vocabulary a little more often than necessary. But posting-regret is by no means deserved!

this really is quite splendid
| Citizenjess chapter 1 . 6/10/2013
Nice work here - the subtle, stoic kindness of Qui-Gon helping his new Padawan to adapt is sweetly extrapolated on. I have always pictured Anakin as the type to overtly ply his Master for extra attention/in this case, cuddling, so the ending surprised me - not necessarily a bad thing, I even kind of gasped a little, so it was obviously effective, but still! Anyways, great little story.

I think my heart broke a little bit there...
| HopelessRomanticist chapter 1 . 12/10/2010
Ye gods that was tragic. Way to stick a knife in my heart.
Incredibly well done, but I'm going to be sitting here for awhile just processing that.
| Teribane chapter 1 . 11/2/2010
This is... um... really sweet and then painfully sad. Yes. Short but awesome.
| Vader's Fallen Angel chapter 1 . 10/19/2009
Congratulations, you have successfully broken my heart.
That seems so simple on the outside, but must have been devastating. It feels like a punch to the gut. The little moments have as much of an effect as the big ones, they just go unnoticed so often that in a way they end up hurting worse.
