Kiss Me

Fandom: Star Wars
Characters/Pairing: Anakin Skywalker / Obi-Wan Kenobi
Timeline: Just prior to AOTC.
For: tpm100's prompt kiss me.
Other: 100 words, concrit welcomed, ask before archival, the boys belong to Lucas, cross-posted to IJ.

Kiss me.

Anakin's eyes snapped up. He'd been contemplating his drink, trying to remember if it was the third or fourth of the night, but that didn't matter now. They'd lost their target, and he finally had proof Obi-Wan's orders to "just blend in" always led to getting plastered. He had to be blitzed, with what he'd just heard.

Kiss me.

Anakin stared. How? Obi-Wan's mouth hadn't moved. He licked his own lips unconsciously, unable to look away.

Anakin! Obi-Wan barked through the Force. They're staring! Kiss me!

Anakin blinked. Right, of course.

He sighed and leaned into the kiss.

Greeting, tails between our legs.

Eating crow doesn't taste very good, but my co-writer and I agree that people should admit when they're wrong, so I suppose we'll have to do so.

We admit we're still not happy with LiveJournal's politics. The way the strike-through was handled left a bad taste in our mouth, and we'd left LJ for that reason, among others. Sadly, the clones just don't measure up. Although we believe IJ's heart is in the right place, constant technical difficulties and waiting nearly two months for the resolution of abuse reports have revitalized our appreciation of LJ. We'll be cross-posting to both again, just as we were before. Neither seems like the perfect option, so we're going to hedge our bets and use both.

Our apologies for the waffling.

4745 (Obi-Wan / Qui-Gon, PG-13)

Title: 4745 (by jarkai on IJ, jarkai_fic on LJ)
Characters: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn
Challenge: Inspired by tpm100's "Anniversary" prompt, but well over a 100 words.
Rating: PG-13

A year has passed, and I cannot commemorate it. The most fitting gift I can think of sickens in the climate-controlled air of Coruscant. Nothing else will do, and so I have to wait. So will you.

I suspect waiting doesn't bother you quite as much as it does me.

***

A year has become five.

In his own eyes, my apprentice is now a young man. How he reminds me of myself at that age! Of course I won't tell Anakin that--he doesn't need the encouragement.

Can it really have been five years? My feelings haven't mellowed with time.

I've yet to find your gift.

***

He has become a knight, this apprentice of mine. Anakin truly is a man now, another five years older and hopefully wiser as well. There are moments when I am not so sure. Sometimes I can hardly recognize the boy I knew on Tattooine.

I feel the decade since we met him, but you never change. Your eyes are just as bright as the first time I held you. My thoughts linger on your hands every moment we are apart.

This year I became certain of where I could acquire your gift. Still, I made no move to claim it. I have begun to wonder if your present will no longer be good enough as soon as I cup it in my hands. Nothing could ever sum up how I feel after ten years, not in the end.

***

Some cultures have great superstitions concerning the number thirteen. In the past I did not believe them.

How could Anakin sweep aside all the days we shared so easily? Why can't I erase the years of distance between you and I with as little effort? Thirteen years, Obi-Wan, but I have never forgotten. I chose not to listen. He is dangerous you said, and you spoke the truth.

Gods. I can smell the Temple burning.

I never found a memory moth for you. Thirteen years have passed years since you lay in my arms, your eyes glazed with pain, your own blood thick on your hands. Four thousand, seven hundred and forty-five days. I have uttered your name on every one of them, whispered it into the wind myself. I know you would have wanted it otherwise, but I couldn't bear giving such beautiful syllables over to an insect. I tried to make my longing into a mantra instead. It remained the prayer of half a man.

I have never stopped missing you. Maul killed you, and I took his life for it, but he had already killed me, too. It simply took me this long to realize it. I know at last what I am praying for.

Happy anniversary, Obi-Wan.

Anakin is coming. We will be together again soon.

~ Qui-Gon

Two Drabbles (Star Wars, Obi/Ani, Rated R)

Both drabbles were originally written for [info]flashslash on LJ.

---DRABBLE ONE---

Frantic, Obi-Wan tore at his clothes.

The wine had been spiced. He had known it the instant the drink had pooled upon his tongue. One did not forget such a flavor, not after years of licking it from his lover's mouth. One simply remembered alone, replacing Qui-Gon's broad hands with more delicate ones, when it was wise to remember at all.

Obi-Wan was not thinking of Qui-Gon now. He abandoned his delicacy, his diplomacy, with the slamming of the door. The party continued outside, bright and loud, but in his quarters he pushed and pulled at his belt by the light of single taper, his ragged breathing the only sound. There, finally--skin, flushed nearly as red as the wine itself. He slid his palms down his thighs and moaned. Nothing more than that, and already he threatened to shoot. The briefest of touches and it would all be over.

Anakin, Anakin had looked at him across the banquet table, his own lips stained scarlet, and--

Pearls of white spilled between Obi-Wan's fingers. He sagged against the wall, panting. Soon enough, another hard come perhaps, and the spice would be burned from his system. He could face his apprentice then, when both flesh and thought had cooled. He could only imagine what trouble the youth had already found, his own heading swimming with wine, shoulder to shoulder with silk-clad women and velvet-draped men.

Without warning, Obi-Wan's prick twitched against his palm, ready for a second round. He stroked it faster this time, roughly, gaze fixed on the floor. Better to stare at gray stone than contemplate the visions just behind his eyes, better to see cold granite than memories of Qui-Gon, than fantasies of Anakin, than picture anyone at all.


---DRABBLE TWO---

Nothing on Jabiim worked. Every tent in the camp sported holes; every one of the speeder-bikes had been down for repairs at least twice. Even the reflection captured by the small mirror Obi-Wan had dug from the bottom of his pack seemed distorted somehow. At least he hoped it was distorted. He'd always thought his body fine before this, the three new bruises across his ribs and his mud-splattered skin notwithstanding. Still, perhaps he had been wrong.

Sodden clothing landed heavily behind him. "For Force sake," Anakin growled, "put that thing away. You haven't got a paunch."

"I feel old," Obi-Wan muttered, never lifting his eyes from the glass.

"Two solid weeks of rain will do that."

"It's not the--" Obi-Wan broke off, suddenly rigid. A single finger traced his spine from nape to tailbone, its subtle weight lingering at his beltline. There was no heat in the touch, only the slightest tingle. In an instant the phantom hand was beneath his leggings as well, its electric caress erasing all thought of further protest.

Obi-Wan turned, breathing shakily. Anakin sprawled on a cot some paces away, stroking himself. A smile played at one corner of his mouth.

"Still feel old?" he asked.

Obi-Wan didn't bother to answer. Not aloud, anyway.

Author Update

Dear Readers,

First off, we love you, and we apologize for not having updated in a terribly long time. However, take heart. Silenus: 0riginal Sin is still on our plate for this year. That said, parts one through three of this series will not be available either here or on our web site for much longer. As of March 1st, 2008, we must remove them from the web. They have been adapted into an original work which will be in a publisher's hands by that time. So, should you want to re-read that tale, now is the time! We ask that you do not archive it elsewhere, including on your own hard drives, though we realize there is no way to enforce this. Should you know of any other places where it has been archived, please let us know. In the meantime, happy reading and wish us luck. We'll see you again as soon as Original Sin is complete.

- Jarkai

PS: Links to our upcoming author website and blogs will be provided within a week or so.
