I'm getting the hang of spliting my replies so half of my thoughts are prompts. In the Qui and Obi Wings, does anyone take little Obi to see Qui-Gon and be all "see you wing will be big enough to carry you one day, just like his" will Qui-Gon give a demonstration of his flight? Will Buck be repremanded, his whole existance annoys me, Jedi raiseing a bully and punishing his victim has always driven me nuts!!!
Holding onto the creche master’s hand tightly, Obi-Wan followed her with wide eyes, wondering where she was taking him.
The old wookie just wuffed happily at him and squeezed the tiny hand in hers gently as she lead the little initiate through the grand halls of the temple, knowing she was leading him to places Obi-Wan had never been before.
“Master Palma…I don’t think I’m suppose to be here.” Obi-Wan offered nervously, wings rustling and fluttering a bit as he clung to her hand tightly.
-Not without a Master with you, no little one. But you are with a master.- She wuffed happily.
“Oh…” Obi-Wan blinked and looked about curiously. “But this is the biiiiig sparring rooms.”
-This is the arena.- She stopped and turned, lifting the winged boy up into her arms. -And I have permission to show you something little one.-
Obi-Wan blinked at her, hands clenching into the others fur as he went quiet, wondering where in Force name she was taking him and what she wanted to show him.
But in the meantime he could peek around at all the master’s and knights he could see.
There was even a padawan here and there!
Hopefully, Obi-Wan studied their braids, imaging having one like it himself one day and caught up in his own fantasy as he was, he gave a surprised eep when Master Palma gently gave his left wing a little tug. “Uh?”
-Look up little one.-
Obi-Wan blinked but did as told, his eyes growing wide and his wings rustling in surprise.
Up near the ceiling of the arena room, a man was doing loops in the air, large deep blue wings spread wide. Force they were so big, one of them were bigger then Obi-Wan’s entire body by two lengths and the man gracefully glided through the air, seemingly unaware of being watched.
-That is Qui-Gon Jinn, and he has wings just like you.- Palma chuckled softly. -One day your wings will be like that too, large and able to carry you through the sky. Whatever anyone else says, remember this moment and remember that all you have left is to grow up little one.-
Obi-Wan blinked, mouth a little open as he stared at the wide wings that carried the man through the air with such ease.
Then he shifted in the wookie’s arms and spread his pale wings slowly, looking at them first then back up. “…I can fly like that one day? Not just…glide?”
-One day little Obi-Wan, when your proper feathers come instead of downy ones. Now, lets go find you some snacks hmm?-
She turned to leave only to turn back when she heard a soft thump not far behind them and heard Obi-Wan squeak, hiding his face in her chest.
“Master Palma, I was not aware the Initiates were up here.” Qui-Gon greeted warmly then blinked at her chest. “Oh…I see. Hello there little one.” Qui-Gon chuckled quietly.
-This is Obi-Wan Kenobi Master Jinn. He’s been unsure about his own wings for a while and I figured showing him you would help him.- Palma chuckled quietly.
Obi-Wan peeked up shyly, blushing. “H-Hi Master.”
Qui-Gon reluctantly felt his lips twitch softly, taking in the soft pale wings and downy feathers. ‘So young…’ He bowed lightly. “Well, if you continue to eat well and train, one day your wings will be as large as mine.” He chuckled warmly then chuckled a bit louder when Obi-Wan hid back in the creche master’s chest.
-He’s shy.- Palm hummed and stroked his hair gently. -And its snack time for him and the others. Thank you for speaking with him though Master Jinn.-
“Any time.” Qui-Gon chuckled, watching the two leave.
Over the wookie’s shoulder, Obi-Wan gave a shy little wave.
