Summary: ?

Reasons for recommending: If this has been rec'd before, I apologize, but I couldn't find it on the history list and BOY, if ever there is something in the Q/O fandom that everyone should read, it is this.

First, I have to warn you that this is a WIP. However, I believe the next part is in beta (Fox?) and even if it never gets finished (::sob::) it's more than worth reading. It's a LONG series. I just re-read it, for like the tenth time, and it took me about 8 hours -- and I read fast. Even so, I can't really recommend just part of it.

Why do I and many others love this fic? For one, it's an AU that is so very rich in ideas and characters, it's created its own snip-off series. I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around just WHY this series is so good. I'll just list a few things I find fascinating about it and trust the rest of you to add comments. *G*

Imagine an AU where Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are "high potentials" -- Jedi savants with amazing abilities, extreme longevity, and a host of quirks/weaknesses (kind of like the GT Jedi). Imagine they are members of a semi-secret society of Jedi called the Order of the Left Hand, first formed millennia ago to combat and put down the Sith, who study the Dark Side and are trained to understand and work in the Grey. Imagine a group of amazingly wonderful Jedi Original Characters ranging from a tortured musician to an artist whose precognition spills out of her at odd moments to a 200-year-old shapeshifter assassin. Imagine an Obi-Wan who discovers his greatest enemy is his own feelings of unworthiness, who knows hundreds of languages, who develops secret codes using songs, and who is prophesied to be The One, but nobody quite knows what that means. Imagine a Qui-Gon who keeps a stiletto in a box as a memento of the time he learned just how much pleasure there is in pain, and who dances to rock-n-roll music when Obi-Wan isn't looking.

I could go on and on, but really, there is no way I can do this thing justice. It's just too huge and complicated and dense.

And if you like the series, check out the spin-off stories about the character Kourt Crowe: http://www.squidge.org/~foxsden/kcfc/kcindex.html

Note: On Feb 23, [livejournal.com profile] jedi_runya posted a rec with two stories. At the time I didn't realize this would mess up the memories, but it does. So I'm re-posting the second half of her post here, just so I can get them into memories properly.

In the future, one rec per post, please. Sorry for not catching it earlier.

Summary: Qui-Gon is seeing things.

Reasons for recommending: This story is another au with a twist. Binky has the gift of pulling the reader in and making the
story come alive. It is funny and sad at the same time with one of the greatest fix-it endings I’ve read.
