I would like to thank Aunecah Skywalker, Frank Kretschmer and Herman Snerd. Without them, "Shadows" would not be where it is now ;-)

This seems like the openness that Obi-Wan and Anakin were always missing in their relationship. I liked this story. Good work.

I liked your story! i especially liked how it was in present tense, which is often hard to do. Obi-Wan and Anakin are my favorite characters, and you portrayed them wonderfully! Good job! -tahl (the former Darra_Skywalker)

Wow. That was really good, and hits the early relationship between Obi-Wan and Anakin right on the nose.

Oh my Gosh. What a wonderful story. It made me cry. This story reminds me of the openness that I am missing with my "Masters", my parents. Wonderful job, and keep up the good work.

This was very good. I haven't read too many stories concerning the early days of Anikan and Obi-Wan's...uhhh...days so this is quite a treat.

This was refreshingly different, and an interesting take on Obi-Wan's early feelings toward Anakin. I enjoyed it.

As one of the reviewers on this one, I was really happy to accept it and am glad to recommend it to anyone who likes the Anakin/Obi-Wan dynamic. It hits on all the strengths and weaknesses of their relationship, and it does it very economically. Both Obi-Wan's affection and his awkwardness are shown beautifully.

That was really well done! I can imagine that there most likely would have been tension between Obi-Wan and Anakin in the early days, since they were kind of thrown together, and I think you captured that nicely.

Hauntingly lovely. I'll think of this when watch the movies. Thanks.

I also think the story goes way bejond of what it actually tells, and this basically why I love the it too: Besides the beautiful chracterisation of the protagonists, the story touches feelings that I guess everybody knows to well:
The inability to reach someone you are close to in moments of pain or anger. Also that feeling that you life is not developing exactly the way you dreamt or desired it. And it reminds us that being close to someone is really a difficult task; althogh a rewarding one.
And so, I guess, that the story is both sad and beautiful is just a reflection of life, is it not?
And it achieves this in only two pages: I call that art :-)

Wow. Not only is this beautifully written, it really helped me understand their later (strained) relationship. I adore Obi-Wan (& Ewan McGregor, too...but that's another story ^_^), and I've always had trouble imagining how he and Anakin would end up with so many problems. The opening scenes of Ep. 2 are...painful. This ties everything together perfectly. The way Obi-Wan second-guesses himself and berates himself, mulling over what he <i>should</i> have done...but never completely rectifying (sp?) his mistake...it makes him human without stripping him of his status as a Jedi. Absolutely fantastic!

This is a breathtaking piece of work. It really gives whoever reads it a sense of how difficult a time this is for Obi-Wan, where most people - including myself :p - tend to focus on the trials of Ani. But Obi-Wan has been both robbed of his mentor and forced into the role of Master, all in one day. He can't be feeling very stable, but he has to put on a strong face for Anakin.
Wonderful job, Bimo. It was exquisite. :p

I can only repeat the comments above. Completely believable (I'm another OBW admirer *and* an older sister! :P); Short, bittersweet emotions, . . . Marvelous.
Thank you for this story.

Great. I like stories about Anikin's early apprinticeship to Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan, I bet feels a lot like Darry in "The Outsiders" or the oldest brother in "Party of Five." His relationship with Anikin is a lot like brothers, one consideralby older, who have just lost a father but barely know each other.

This is truly the best I've read that perfectly fits Obi-Wan; you've accomplished a profound feat. Beautifully crafted, showing Obi-Wan in a better light than he's ever been given...hats off to you.

I loved it. It shows a side of Obi-Wan that you don't see in the movies. And even in the books, it's barely touched on. I very much enjoyed reading it.
