This is an absolutely wonderful piece! I really enjoyed reading it--it was very emotional and superbly written. I like how you show Owen deciding to raise the child to kind of spite Obi-wan. I can see how Owen could become so hardened against Obi-wan from the happenings you have alluded to. I think the cover art was very well done as well--it seemed to capture the feelings evoked by the writing. Great job!

Thanks for the positive feedback, guys. I'm probably not going to respond individually to each post unless somebody asks a question, but I *do* appreciate the strokes! I'm glad you enjoyed the story.

Very good story. Quick and to the point. As a person who has had a falling out with a brother before, I think you have portrayed the emotions and reactions quite well.

Well done! VERY well done. I really enjoyed this. I like how it reflected Owen's reaction to Luke's questions from ANH; this fits very well.

Wow. Wonderful, wonderful piece. I really like Owen's reaction to Obi-Wan, and even though it's an AU, such a background would make sense considering the OT. Well written, and very well characterized. :)

That's one of my favourites, so far.
Hope GL does it as cool.

I love it! Shows nicely the antagonism between Kenobi and Lars in ANH. I could totally see this happening if they really were brothers. Great charecterization!

To see a sequel to this story, watch Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

I really liked your story!!! I had always wondered what it would have been like if Owen really was Obi-wan's brother. I was currious if you knew that in the Jedi Apprentice books, (#3) Obi-wan remembers that he does have a brother named Owen, although obviously not Owen Lars. Keep writing such great stories!

That was well written. I feel really bad for Obi-Wan because he came looking for help in his time need and all Owen could say was "Go to hell!" I almost cried. I think that stories that make you cry are some of the best.

Lovely, absolutely lovely. Your character descriptions were wonderful - they made Obi-Wan and Owen seem so real. You are very talented - keep on writing! ;)

I must say, if Owen had been Obi's brother, this is exactly he would react. I like this very much. I only wish that it were longer.

Truly an awesome story. Could not have possibly been written better. You are indeed a true fan.

Better than (most)of the published official canon stuff by FAR! Wow wow wow.
I absolutely LOVED the touch of Qui Gon's death, Obi-Wan's mourning...everyone reacted JUST AS THEY SHOULD HAVE.
Just - what is waipuipui? Sorry. Just HAVE to know.

The first fanfic I have read on TF.N and a good start. This really caught the anger inherrent in Owen, as well as catching on to a plot point that I regrte has been changed for the prequels - that Ben and Owen are not brothers. I don't see why they couldn't have been. although I like what has been done linking Anakin's family to Owens through Shmi and Clieg. Anyway, nicely written little vignette about these two "brothers." I shall keep an eye out for this writers work in the future.

Excellent! Well written too!

That was really beautiful! You captured Obi-Wan's vulnerability, yet his determination to keep Luke safe, so very well. Lovely!

I absolutely love considering obi wan is one of my favorite characters. It was really well written I would read it again and recommend it to anyone who wanted to read it.

Great piece of fic here. I find it highly amusing that if written (or archived?) BEFORE the events of the prequels were known, it would NOT have had to been labled as AU. Fits perfectly with the pre-prequel Canon, when Owen Lars *was* Kenobi's brother (as told in the RotJ novelization).

Weather obi-Wan and Owen are brothers or not, this story reflects very well on their relationship: Owen's outbursts, Obi-Wan's calm and Beru's somewhat complicated position in the middle.
It would also explains why Owen always seems angry with Luke for something the boy hasn't done and in fact, don't even know.
A nice one, really.

WOW!!!! Absolutely BRILLIANT!! I LOVED it! ... the way you portrayed Obi-Wan's sadness over Anakin's turning, and Owen's anger toward Obi-Wan, it was so poignant, soooo well done! You nailed their characters; I could hear the voices so clearly in my head it was like I was watching the movies! A fantastic job! Suberbly written! I thoroughly enjoyed this little jewel!! :)

I think Obi-Won is Owen Lars brother because why else would he take Luke to him? Plus at the end of the book Revenge of the Sith Obi-Won says to Ankain, "You were my brother I loved you!" Anakin was Owen and Obi-Won's step-brother. If you have proof otherwise please say it on this message board.
