Wow! What an intriguing journey into Anakin's mind. I can definitely see the autopilot characteristic as being a central part of his life as a slave - both physically, and then to the dark side. Excellent insight! :)

Being a pilot myself, I can understand the need to be in the cockpit and have stick time. After not flying for so long, I'm not sure if I would have had the ability to keep from taking control of the situation.

I agree with my fellow Padawon - excellent insight. He is starting to give in.

How old in Anakin supposed to be in this story?

They had gotten bigger and broader in the months since his twelfth birthday -- a lot bigger and broader

Very interesting story. It was neat to see a kind of training outside the usual.

I enjoyed the subtlety of this piece -- especially the vague sense Anakin had of his reaction being, somehow, out of balance. Very nice.

Great story, so good that my only complaint is that it should be longer.

I enjoyed this story a lot because it's a clever look at how Obi-Wan's training of Anakin could go awry in a bunch of different ways without either one being fully aware of it. It's a great prelude of things to come.

A very interesting idea. And a haunting story, foreshadowing things to come. It's so sad that Obi-Wan doesn't realize what's happened... but if he did, we wouldn't have Star Wars, would we. ;-) Congratulations on your writing skills -- stories like this one make fan fiction a readworthy genre!

This is very original!! Really surprised me and yet I could totally see this happening. Added to my understanding of Ani/Vader.

Great story! (and just the length it *needed* to be, too.)

The last sentence perfectly shows the foreshadowing of Anakin's future disobetience. Good work.

Good work. Very interesting reading about Anakin's mind, and I can see that the 'autopilot'-part would have a big part in his life.

Wow, I really enjoyed this story.
It felt very 'real' to me, like something Obi Wan would do to Anakin, and a way Anakin would react.
Well done!

Not bad, not bad at all. I enjoyed the foreshadowing of things to come, and especially enjoyed the last two or three lines. It definately shows the rebellious streak in our young Sith Lord to be. Good job, I gave it an 8 out of 10.

Everyone has commented about the foreshadowing so I'll just pick the nitty-gritties.
'Everything!' about this story demands a comment. The background - 'Obi-Wan's special lessons, the lessons that made Anakin feel like a building being renovated by an eager architect. The facade was fine, but all the supports were in the wrong places, and needed to be carefully moved.
Trusting Obi-Wan took a little more effort, because Anakin was always sure that sooner or later, Kenobi would decide to give up his little construction project.'
I love this. You can see that both characters have come a long way from 'the boy is dangerous' in TPM. A trust - even more important than affection - has developed between the two.
The atmosphere in the Temple - 'news traveled fast among telepaths, once it was loose. ' - LOL! That was so humane and down-to-earth and of course, Anakin's reaction is just typical. Kudos to Obi-Wan for seeing beneath the surface of the puerility of Anakin's reaction. Kudos to the author for being so true to these characters.
'Anakin was planning to tell him what had happened .. But Obi-Wan looked so happy....It was good... to see what it looked like when Obi-Wan seemed to want to brag.'
This paragraph just about broke my heart. The way with all the good intentions in the world behind that action, the foundation is set for the eventual estrangement between Anakin and his Master. Once again, Fernwithy has delivered another 'it really did happen' story.

I find the idea of Anakin's dissociation as a slave both interesting and realistic.
