Most cool! You will, I hope, write a conclusion bringing the prodigal back home.

Excellent story! I thought it was wonderful, the way Obi-Wan followed the will of the Force and did what had to be done, and the way he accepted the Council's decision despite his personal feelings. Beautiful!

Absolutely stunning. You have an amazing gift for painting a complete portrait in words. And to be able to lead your readers to imagine how it would be to have one's entire world ripped out from under them, in the name of expediency, is a formidable talent. And you have reinforced my own belief that Obi-Wan is the true tragic hero of the Star Wars saga - the noblest, brightest, and best. Bravo.

This is, without a doubt, the best fanfic I have ever read. This was better even than many of the official stories, and I thoroughly enjoyed every word. Too bad the prequels themselves probably won't live up to such flawless story-telling or such a surprising and satisfying plot.

Nothing short of inspiring. Lucas himself couldn't have done better. Well... I take that back. Neither Lawrence Kasdan or Timothy Zahn could have done better. Lucas was never really good at dialogue, but you CERTAINLY are. I admit, I had a little trouble seeing Obi-Wan lose his temper like that, but I guess it's just because I still have the Alec Guiness image in mind since we didn't get a lot of Obi-Wan in Episode 1. I'm sure that feeling will go away after I see Episodes 2 and 3. Excellent story. I hope you wind up writing several Star Wars books in the future.

Wow, that was truly brilliant. I have this bad habit of not commenting on stories after I read them, but this story was so amazing, so moving, that I just had to say something. I think you've got a great way with words and a great talent for telling stories - I could feel exactly what Obi-Wan felt. I don't think I've been drawn like this into a story before. Thank you for this fantastic read!

I just finished reading your story and I am VERY impressed. Not since reading Tim Zahn have I felt like watching the story while reading it. You MUST continue where you left off because so many plot lines were left unfinished. Especially the Obi-Wan/Anakin relationship. At the end of your story, everything should be in place for Episode II. Seriously, you should consider finishing this Masterpiece and sell the book.

I think this story was very well-done. Ten years, the Senate didn't change a bit: It's full of squabbling delgates, who care more about themselves than the political good... Of course, they would want to eliminate hard-working Jedi like Obi-Wan, in case people get "dangerous" ideas from them.

Great story, Quiller. MY head is throbbing from all the emotion poured into your prose. The characters in all your stories always seem very deep. I also noticed the naturalistic symbolism you slipped in. It always works. Nice job.

This was very well writen. The raw emotion it inspires is incredible. I actualy started to cry. Having read the Jedi Aprentice books, I feel like I know Obi Wan and I felt pained by his betrayal. Obi Wan did not fail Qui Gon or Anakin. The Jedi Council failed them.

DarkAngelRaine's Comments:

This is the best story I have ever read. It's a much more realistic concept then most fics about the falling out between Anakin and Obi-Wan. I think it would have been a compromise of the Jedi's integrity if Obi-wan were to "make a move" on Padme.

The story was extremely well written and you really get the feel that the characters would really react that way. AMAZING!! Hopefully George Lucas will get a chance to read this!

Wow. That was so incredibly powerful, I'm still reeling. I don't give 10s lightly, but I gave you one (the second one I've ever given, I think).

I was alternately laughing and crying, and my dad asked me if I was okay at one point.

Please write more stories for us!

You made me cry! What a wonderfully written, heartwrenching story. I was hoping that it was a trick to leave Obi-Wan free to do what they could not- destroy the other cloning facility. I was raging along with Obi-Wan at the injustice of it all. It is a skill to involve your readewr is such a way. Excellent story.

Sorry, but this is not Star Wars!
Nice try! Maybe you should write a
book tited "Troll Wars."

Oh Maaan! This is one of the best fanfics I have ever read. This is one of the few fanfics that embody the "feeling" of Star Wars (the scene between Obi-Wan and Yoda especially). Please write a sequel as I will be the first one to read it.

"Adversity can only make you stronger...." That was my first thought, after finishing this terrific story.

I can always count on this author to bring a real sense of "human-ness" to the characters; that's certainly the case in this one, allowing us to understand how Obi-Wan can accept that the Force has another fate in mind for him.

And the story itself flows smoothly, carrying you along. A terrific effort.

As someone who saw the movie, I just had to say:
Well done.
I loved the dialogue, the emotions and the beginning of logical occurances (Obi Wan fighting in the clone wars as said in episode IV, and Anakin crossing over to the darkside) and I really think now that the movie would have only benifited from having this inside. Would have made much more sense and made characters less robotic (i.e Obi Wan! Ever get a feeling he feels nothing? Not only Bail thinks so) and more homanoid.

What more can I say? Well done, excellant work, the best Star Wars fan fic I read to date!

I hope you write more, I would love to read them!

Wow. That was so amazingly comprehensive and...eek...just stellar! I'm still in a bit of a shock; very little gets me this close to speechless!! You have a true gift for dialogue. I don't think I could have carried that on as long as you did, and what's more, you kept it interesting, and yet still made the reader feel like it was at times quite the monotonous tribunal, minus the monotony, if you know what I mean! I loved Yoda especially, and Obi-Wan was perfectly in-character. I could imagine Ewan McGregor saying all those lines and reacting that way perfectly! It also was not only consistent, but supportive, of Anakin turning away from the Jedi, and the Order eventually being obliterated by the Emperial Senate. *Quite* the fic you have here, my dear!

that is about all that is needed to be said! That was pure genius! I had never seen that picture of Obi-Wan in that light until now! Now that I read this fic, it has opened my eyes to look at that picture of Obi-Wan, as well as Obi-Wan's character, in a whole new light!

The characterization was brilliant! Anakin reacted like...anakin!

Being related to love it!
please, if it is in your plans, WRITE A SEQUEL!!! lol!

Seeing as how this story is by Quiller, I had very high expectations, and I was not disappointed at all. It was a very interesting take on how AotC could have happened, and in some aspects it may have been a bit better than the movie--which I loved. You write the best Obi-Wan I have read in any fan-fic or official EU.

Bravo! Write another!! Poor Obi-Wan. I felt so stinkin' bad for him as I was reading this... it seems like he never gets credit for anything, he's always the hero that's left in shadows. Ani leaves a legacy, but what does Obi leave behind? ... Sorry. In angsty mood today.

*Scolds* BAD Jedi Council. BAD!

I loved this story. I especially liked the part where Bail refers to Obi-Wan as a saint, because I do think that Obi-Wan has a darker side--he's just very good at keeping it under control. Plus, I really liked the idea of how Obi-Wan will eventually become a General but will still be a Jedi....i.e., write a sequel, PLEASE!!

"nerf crap" lol!

Excellent story. Loved the mother's final thoughts before she was killed. Luke and Mara...interesting vision, one that would later come true. Palpatine-ruthless, ruthless, ruthless. "Use the Dioxis gas..." I probably don't want to know what that is. Good job with him.

Oh boy. This just seems to be my day of finding fics I read long ago on other sites over here. This is a very powerful piece of prose, even though it has a terrible ending. I mean, I know I should be happy for Obi-Wan that he finally can live in peace (or as much peace as anybody who has worked his entire life for the good of the galaxy and has just been cast out of what he had been his entire life because of it), but really ... we all know that Obi can't live without being a Jedi.

Anyway, good job.

Dude! That was freakin' AWESOME! Never in my life have I seen Obi portrayed in that light. Now that I've seen Ep2, I agree it's AU, but it's one of the best damn AU's I've EVER read! The charas were brilliant! I really felt like I was watching the movie. All the people were exactly in character, so it was no problem at all for me to envision it. Jeez. This could be made into like, a movie. Or maybe just a TV special, b/c it's not long enough for an hour-and-a-half movie. But still---FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC!

This is an excellent AU; it really characterises what makes an AU special - that it seems so realistic that it could well be taken to part of the real SW saga (albeit in another world).

I love the way Obi-Wan and Yoda followed the will of the Force. Beneath all the deception, all the pain, there was this underlying knowledge of what really was right, and I think it said so much about the Jedi Council.

This story has brought a lot of meaning into Obi-Wan's sad look. Thank you.

Let me tell you something in all seriousness. I don't review fanfics lightly-- at all. I'm pretty tough on them, even on my own. But I have to say that, as a fanfic and as a piece of writing, this was AWESOME. It's probably the best fic I've ever read in terms of characterization and believability as well as insight. It gave me chills at points. It was astounding. A perfect 10 in my book, and I'm telling you that means a lot.

All I can say is, if this is the best fanfic people have ever read, there must be a ton of extrememly crappy fanfic out there. I will say it was well-written, but it does not at all fit in Star Wars. The Jedi council would never act that way, and neither would Obi-Wan. However, amusing it was.

Quiller, you are an amazing writer. I lonve the way you always portray Obi-Wan in such a great way, Secrets and Secrets Unveiled were other great, Force-inspired works of magic. After reading them, albeit in the wrong order, I will always have high expectations when reading one of your stories. So far I haven't been let down! Anyway, a truly amazing story, I loved it to bits. Oh, yeah, and I agree with everyone else about this: Please write a sequel!!
