    Summary

    Obi-Wan Kenobi, failed Jedi initiate, never makes it to Bandomeer. Instead, she lands on Tatooine and has to figure out how to survive on a desert planet without losing her freedom.

    When Anakin's destiny takes him to Coruscant and the Jedi, is this Obi-Wan's second chance? Or does her future lie elsewhere, with Jango Fett and his mysterious job on Kamino?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Well written, pretty enjoyable. Not as much Jango/Obi-Wan as you might like, since they don't really get together romantically until more than halfway through the fic, and don't get to be together, as in travel/live together, until halfway through the last chapter. But it's an interesting take on a different path for Obi-Wan, and interesting in how her presence as an outsider during certain events changes things for the better. Feels a little unfinished in the end, but we do see the path they intend to take to end up with Jango and Obi-Wan the buire of all of the clones, and the clones free.

    Summary

    "If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine."

    ****


    “70 …” 68 said slowly, taken off-guard. 70 wasn’t a brother normally inclined towards ghost-tales. “Ben isn’t real. He’s just a baby story--something the tubies like to pretend is real.”

    70 shook his head, his face set in stubborn lines. “He might not be. No, listen--” he gave 74 a glare when it looked like his brother wanted to interrupt again. “I’ve heard the stories, and they’re always the same. The tubies all know what he looks like. They all know he’s a jetii, before anyone ever told them what a jetii was. You know how the longnecks keep batches of tubies separate. There’s no way any of us, or any of the older vod, could have told them about him. But it doesn’t matter. All the batches know about Ben.”

    Well written, interesting take on time travel with a (so far) exclusive focus on the clones. This manages to make inscrutable-enigmatic-force-ghost-Ben not entirely infuriating. He's still undeniably the mysterious old man character, but he does actually accomplish things and make a noticeable difference. The clones are, unsurprisingly, interesting and engaging characters. [Unfinished, 24 chapters at bookmarking]

    Summary

    After touching a mysterious artifact, Cody's general is suddenly a child with the memories to match. Cody has to coax a suspicious adolescent back to base without alerting the nearby Separatists of their presence.

    Reversing his general's age an easier fix than Cody thought it would be, but he didn't factor in the possibility that Obi-Wan might not want to give up his self in order to become General Kenobi again. It'd be easier to think if he didn't have an insidious voice in his head, whispering to him to distrust the Jedi.

    Great writing, angry!BAMF!tiny!Obi-Wan is amazing, and this is a proper fix-it. Could maybe use a much larger dose of yelling at the Jedi Council, but otherwise one of the most enjoyable Star Wars fics I've read, if nothing else then because of the lack of extreme, stressful, heartbreaking angst (there's still angst, obviously, since we're dealing with Melida/Daan feelings, but it's not soul crushing angst, and things work out in the end).

    Summary

    A newly hired Jango Fett is sent by Count Dooku to 'keep an eye' on new Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi.

    'Don't fall in love with the Jedi' wasn't on Jango's list of mission precautions.

    A mistake.

    Unfinished and never to be finished, but it's a great start to a story, and it's captured me enough that I'm almost certainly going to want to read it again, so I might as well bookmark it now rather than a month from now after an exhausting and frustrating search. -_- For all that the story seems very much based on betrayal, it's awfully soft and Jango ends up very sweet.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is so well written, and the first half is one of the best examples of time travel induced chaos and confusion I've ever read. "Traditional" Jedi's responses to meeting Luke and Vader are hysterical and the clones' never ending exasperation are so great. The second half is still very good but it drops the tone of lighthearted chaos that the first half has and gets a little serious and very emotional. [Note to self: do not read the two chapters surrounding the liberation of Tattooine. No main characters die, and it is all very badass and heroic and there are great speeches, etc etc etc, but there is a minor character death that absolutely wrecked you and the emotional trauma was bad enough the first time, it is 100% not worth re-traumatizing yourself!]
