| TheDarkKunoichi chapter 11 . 5/28
Sithspit! Dammit! This is the most frikkin emotional thing I've ever read in my whole sithy life! Damn... I've always been a big fan of Obi-Wan, and it frikkin HURT me to see him so miserable, to imagine the things he endured... to imagine how he must've felt since Qui-Gon (btw, he's a big son of a bitch. Sorry for the language...) up to Mustafar. Damn damn damn! I swear, if I was Obi-Wan's padawan I will make him frikkin proud of me. Not like what Anakin did, damn him. Shucks, I'm still crying over here! I hope Anakin confronts him about Qui-Gon. But I guess it wouldn't really suit things... Anyway, I'm really glad I read this story. It just made me realize Anakin and Palpatine's a real bastard. I normally like Qui-Gon, but damn he can be abusive...
I really like this a lot! Thanks and I guess I'll read more of your stories now.

I love your story so much!
Many people only sympathise with Anakin but I feel that obi wan suffered just as much, if not more.
I hope you continue to write awesome stories like this :)

Sooooo...Just sweeping the brutal genocide under the 'ole rug eh?

Well, I think that there were a few things in this that went a bit far...Qui-gon was cold, distant and healing from a bad decision he made, but I read the Jedi Apprentice books, and between those and what we saw in the movie, he never struck me as downright abusive. I like what you did with the clone wars, very nicely done. Having Mace yell and the Jedi know about Anakin's 'involvement' with Padme seemed a bit much though. Having them suspect something like that was going on I can see, but having them outright know and not doing anything about it...after a few times of Obi-wan begging, I can't see them accepting it.
Love the idea though. I'd like to see a tad bit slower pace and a little more description of the scenes and people around him, but otherwise I liked the idea. :)

That...is a very good question...interesting idea...*must go think on this*...

Personally, I don't think that Obi-Wan would beg and plead on his knees for anything less than someone else's life, and maybe not even then. He is The Negotiator for a reason. I think more likely he would argue with the Jedi Council for hours, and agree to do more dangerous missions, give up free time, whatever, a long as they keep Anakin in the order. He wouldn't beg, he'd too dignified for that.

Wow... fourth time in so many days that I have read this, and I still love it :) It's so realistically portrayed, the way Anakin slowly comes to his senses... the emotion is really great as well! I cried several times ;D Thanks for writing!

Wow, I loved this great story. This is actually the second time I read it. It was so powerful, moving, awe inspiring, etc that I needed to read it again. To give me time to allow my thoughts, feelings and emotions to become clear. This story is both heartwarming and heart aching, I love how Anakin finally understands what makes Obi Wan who and what he is. Anakin realizes that everything Obi Wan did was to try help him and done out of love. He finally grows up and matures enough to take responsibility for his own actions and to recognize who truly is his family and friends.
The spelling and grammar mistakes didn't really affect the flow of the story. My biggest problem was the tears and tissues, I must have used a whole box. Thank goodness this story was only 11 chapters long, lol. Well if you look at it in a positive light at least the story was very cathartic and the ending was beautiful. I loved 4 year old Luke, what can you expect when Anakin's the father, and son of an Anakin was priceless. You captured all of the characters personalities very well. Even if I don't want to believe Qui Gon (my favourite Jedi) would ever hit Obi Wan. I know it was needed for the story, but the Qui Gon scenes were the most heartbreaking for me. I would have loved to seen Anakin witness Qui Gon's death and seen how he felt knowing Qui Gon's last words were about him and not about Obi Wan. Thank you for your wonderful story.
