RATING/WARNING(S): G
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 4,200
MAIN CHARACTERS: Finis Valorum, Qui-Gon Jinn

FIC SUMMARY: Valorum tries to discover Jinn's human side. Part of the "Fin & Jinn" series. Follows "Well Begun".

RECCER'S NOTES: This is part of a series exploring the friendship between Qui-Gon Jinn, Jedi Master and troll, and Finis Valorum (as in, "I move for a vote of no confidence in Chancellor"). The latter has exactly seven lines in canon (I checked), but his character is fully fleshed out here and his rather odd friendship with Qui-Gon is as believable as it is inevitable. This particular story takes place when both characters are young men, each still trying to decipher the other.

I wish I knew if this author is still writing somewhere. They have a very thoughtful approach to storytelling and character that I'd love to see again.

Aaaand I'm done!

WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 2,000
MAIN CHARACTERS: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn

FIC SUMMARY:
Your planet is new to the Republic: the Council of Three Nations found the moons within living memory, and your father remembers a time when all ships traveled slower than light. Your children, when they are born, will never know anything but the Republic and the Senate and the Federation. By the end of the decade, in fact, your planet will have a representative in the Senate.

This, however, the first time you have ever met Jedi.


RECCER'S NOTES: An outsider viewpoint on a Jedi Knight and his very young apprentice. The culture clash here, the essential oddness of Jedi life, is very well expressed and a little bit sad.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Ahsoka Tano, Leia Organa

FIC SUMMARY: Ahsoka won't teach Leia to use the Force, but she can teach her to hide herself within it.

RECCER'S NOTES:

This is a brilliant story featuring Ahsoka teaching Leia. Ahsoka is great here, and Leia too, very close to canon. And it makes so much sense. Awesome.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Anakin Skywalker, Donna Noble; Yoda, Tenth Doctor

FIC SUMMARY: What do you do when you wake up in a space prison with no idea what's happened to your ride home? Well, it helps if there's a Jedi Knight in the next cell.

RECCER'S NOTES:

This is such a fun romp! Love the blending of the two fandoms. Donna's interaction with Anakin is great, and I love her characterization here.
