Title: The Changing Fate series
Authors: ilyena_sylph & Merfilly
Canon: Star Wars – the Prequel Trilogy
Pairing: Qui-Gon Jinn/Obi-Wan Kenobi; Padmé Amidala/Anakin Skywalker
Rating: General – Teen [G – PG]
Word Count: 187,695
Summary: In a galaxy where Qui-Gon Jinn doesn’t let Darth Maul bait him ahead of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the events of the Prequel Trilogy fall out quite differently. How will it all play out when Master Qui-Gon Jinn trains Anakin Skywalker, with a helping hand from Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi?

Recommendation: Happy Christmas! I hope this finds you all safe and happy (whether you celebrate or not). 😀 Consider this a Christmas present from me to you because this story really is a gift. 😉 I’m not going to lie, long long ago when I was a wee little internet lurker I totally shipped QuiObi after the prequel movies came out despite the fact that I usually don’t go for such a large age difference. But beyond my ship-y feelings, this is so great because I was always convinced that Qui-Gon would have been a much better master for Anakin and that the relationship between Obi-Wan and Anakin would have been better if it genuinely was brotherly instead of teacher/father figure-esque. This story also did something rather unexpected for me. I’ve never shipped Anidala, wait wait, let me explain. Their relationship is canon. It just is, like trees. It didn’t need to be “shipped” per se. But in this story they meet again earlier (and someone does right by Shmi, thank Force) and Anakin, who has adjusted well with Qui-Gon as his master, though still utterly devoted to Padme wants their relationship to have a good solid friendship to build off of. So I found myself shipping these two so hard and happy in the knowledge that they would be together in due time and there would likely still be Force twins and that they would be able to be a happy family, and *sigh* yeah, I didn’t expect that. Oh and there are truly wonderful clone trooper OCs. 😀 All the good things!
