Whoa, great summary Mel! Way to be ominous :) I've been waiting patiently for this so i'm glad you've decided to start posting soon.
Your plot sounds very intriguing and complex. Good luck with it and i'll be hanging on every word. Can't wait.

Hey Mel. I think I sent you an e-mail about this last post, but thought i'd review also. What a lovely way to end this fic of yours, of course it's not really the end though now is it ;)
I really loved how you handled things with Obi and Qui. They were both very. . . . jedi like :) Hey, that's how they should act. They are both adults and are mature and rational. I think it was a very realistic way for them to have come to terms with what happened between them. And the outbursts that took place before they could do that were very realistic as well. They both had to come to terms with their emotions.
The role reversal with Obi comforting Qui was a little bit of a surprise, but did show us how much Obi has grown in his year without Qui. I liked how he told Qui that he no longer had the right to call him 'my Obi-Wan.' And that Obi referred to Yoda as his master. It was said tactfully and with respect to Qui's feelings, but at the same time i'm like 'Yeah baby! Stick it to him! Yes, i'm a bit of a sadist-especially where Qui is concerned. He hurt our Obi, I don't take that lightly at all.
Anyways, I know what you mean about getting absorbed in your fic. I really applaude you for getting it out so quick. It took me nine months to write Going Home, and you surpased me in length a few chapters ago :)
Take you time with the sequel. We'll be waiting patiently to read it whenever you are ready. Thanks for such a wonderful and well written ride, Mel.

What a great story! I'm so sad it's over, but I am really looking forward to the sequel! I have the feeling Qui-Gon isn't done being a bonehead yet.
Oh, ummm... will there be any character appearances from Cyn's AUF? Hopefully! I'd love to see Arain Fermia again...! He was a great friend/father figure for Obi-Wan.
Thanks for a wonderful story!

Bravo!, this was much better than any "action" laden fic I've read lately, the emotion and the realization that you can't go back, but only forward on your on terms, made this so good. I could'nt wait for each new post, I for one am very looking forward to the sequel. :) 7

Congratulations on writing a very interesting and dynamic story. I really liked the way you wrote the characters, Qui Gon, Obi-Wan, and Anakin. You detailed their personalities by highlighting the admirable qualities and their flaws.
I have enjoyed reading your story the last few weeks, and I look forward to its sequal. Thank you.

Absolutely stunning! I have read many pieces of fiction on these boards and can say this has been one of my favorites.
I enjoyed the reconciliation between Obi-Wan and Qui-gon and was so enthralled to see it handled so intelligently. How true it is that their relationship could not possible return to what it was. Great job.
Oh and please let me tell you how truly happy I was with the frequency of your posts. From the start it was clear that your story was well-thought out and you knew where you were going AND most importantly, your weren't going to leave us hanging and never finish the fiction. Thanks so much for that effort. I anxiously await your sequel and hope to see more and more from you on the boards.
