This is Obi-Wan Kenobi: A phenomenal pilot who doesn’t like to fly. A devastating warrior who’d rather not fight. A negotiator without peer who frankly prefers to sit alone in a quiet cave and meditate. Jedi Master. General in the Grand Army of the Republic. Member of the Jedi Council. He is respected throughout the Jedi Order for his insight as well as his warrior skill. He has become the hero of the next generation of Padawans; he is the Jedi their Masters hold up as a model. He is the being that the Council assigns to their most important missions. He is modest, centered, and always kind. He is the ultimate Jedi. It is characteristic of Obi-Wan that he is entirely unaware of this.

this story happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. it is already over. nothing can be done to change it. 


Kenobi would rather talk than fight, but when there is fighting
to be done, few can match him. Skywalker is the master of audacity;
his intensity, boldness, and sheer jaw-dropping luck are the perfect
complement to Kenobi’s deliberate, balanced steadiness. Together,
they are a Jedi hammer that has crushed Separatist infestations on
scores of worlds.


Quote from Revenge of the Sith, M. Stover


“Anakin.” Obi-Wan’s voice had gone soft, and his hand was warm on Anakin’s arm. “There is no other Jedi I would rather have at my side right now. No other man.”


a jedi does not cling to the past.
and obi-wan kenobi knows, too, that to have lived his life without being master to anakin skywalker would have left him a different man. a lesser man

make me choose

Mustafar hummed with death behind his back, only a moment away, somewhere out there among the rivers of molten rock. Obi-Wan let Anakin drive him toward it.

It was a place, he decided, they should reach together.

Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Stover

Wait, does this sentence “It was a place, he decided, they should reach together“ imply that Obi-Wan wanted to die near Anakin on Mustafar?

That’s… not the Jedi-like, but taking into account their friendship…

Oh, my Obikin feels

I’m only up to page 62, but these are some of my favorite bits from Matthew Stover’s book adaptation of Revenge of the Sith

I’M GLAD I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE SO AFFECTED.  Seriously, this book is a PROBLEM.  Every time I find a new quote I love (and you hit quite a few of my favorites there!), I end up going back and rereading that whole section just to experience the awesomeness of the quote again.  And this KEEPS HAPPENING.  So by the time I get to page 20, I’ve read those 20 pages probably about 5 times.  I’M NEVER GOING TO FINISH THIS BOOK.  O_o;;;  IT’S A PROBLEM.
