Oh, and. Yesterday I happened upon a little ficlet called Tea. Yes, Virginia, it's Rupert Giles/Qui-Gon Jinn, written in 2001. I haven't seen an episode of Buffy in ages, and haven't seen The Phantom Menace in an eternity longer than that. But I was curious, and what do you know? It's a sweet, tender story that I not only loved, but I wanted to read the novel-length, chaptered sequel, which, of course, doesn't exist. I was also struck by how alike these two characters are, and wanted to know if anything happened next, if anything could happen next. I actually woke up a couple of times thinking "What would happen if..."
And, no, I'm not going to write it. I've got enough stuff started. I think I write like I knit--I have a million things started and nothing finished. But does anyone know if this Misha person has an LJ? I'd love to give her a review and I don't really want to do it through email.
