A Pleasant Little Tale...
A review of A Single Night

By : Valeda Kor

It's enjoyable to read "might have been" stories. It's not possible for every Star Wars movie to tie up every storyline, and that leaves a lot of room for authors of fan fiction to bring their own unique spin to life.

That's certainly the case in "A Single Night," whereby the author, LadyFett, has taken a few minutes of screen time between Qui-Gon Jinn and Shmi Skywalker in "The Phantom Menace" to present a clever story of attraction regretfully ignored.

The character of Shmi has been filled out, and an explanation given for how she came to be the mother of The Chosen One, as satisfactory a backstory as you'll ever see. She's shown to be a heroine in her own right, carving out a unique and dignified existence which belies her status as a slave. Qui-Gon Jinn is the strong, stalwart Jedi we already know, striving to follow the path of the Living Force while realizing that he feels something for this quiet woman. "A Single Night" is also well-crafted, full of images and point of view variations that readers will appreciate, not a wasted word or cliche to be seen.

It's a short, short story, sure to give you pleasant minutes of reading. Recommended.
