I've just had this idea of Qui and Obi being sent on a mission to be a Presence (to try settle unrest) on a planet where short beings are really rare, imagine this species grows really fast so being short or small isn't really a thing and when they see Obi-Wan and they think he's the Cutest Person Ever and they think he's super super young because of his height and they have such a deference to Qui bc they think he's Obi's dad and basically a potential dispute is settled bc Obi-Wan is tiny okay
Anon. ANON. WHO ARE YOU. COME OFF ANON AND TELL ME MORE ABOUT THIS INCREDIBLE THING.
THE ADVENTURES OF
SMOLBI WAN KENOBI AND QUI DAD JINN
What would the dispute be about though? Would these people be in the midst of a civil war? Are they trying to declare independence from the Republic? Are they holding political prisoners hostage???
OOH OOH Maybe they’re an extremely long-lived species with a very low birth rate, which subsequently means that they hold children and those that care for children in very high esteem?
OH Maybe Obi Wan gets a little cold so he stays behind on the ship bc of his pounding headache so when Qui Gon pops up alone they’re like “Who is this human” and they side-eye him the entire time he’s there and nothing gets done like “we’re not going to listen to a human even if you are bigger than the rest of your scrawny, stunted race–” “a human making demands of us how arrogant, how insulting–” so Qui Gon’s like SIGHS okay FINE I must take Drastic Measures and he goes back to his ship and he’s like “Obi Wan we’re going to execute Plan of Action #468-B” and Obi Wan’s like “But Master I don’t like that plan” “No time to argue, bratling we have a Mission”
and suddenly BAM out comes Qui-Gon down the ship ramp carrying this teeny tiny lil human child in his arms who is sO SO SMOL AND THEY ALL DO A COMPLETE ATTITUDE 180
WHY IS YOUR CHILD SO TINY HUMAN WHY IS HIS FACE SO RED IS HE ILL HUMAN DOES HE REQUIRE ANYTHING WE KNOW LITTLE OF YOUR HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY BUT WE HAVE THE BEST MEDICAL FACILITIES IN THE ENTIRE SECTOR PLEASE FRIEND MAKE USE OF ALL OF OUR RESOURCES THEY ARE AT YOUR DISPOSAL WHY DID YOU NOT ALERT US THAT YOUR CHILD WAS IN NEED WE APOLOGIZE FOR TAKING UP SO MUCH OF YOUR TIME WE SHALL CALL AN IMMEDIATE RECESS PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOUR SMALL CHILD AND NOTIFY US OF ANYTHING YOU MAY REQUIRE
And Qui Gon’s like “Yes of course, you are too kind, etc etc”
and Obi Wan’s going full throttle Drama Queen like “Oh, woe is me, I am a tiny tiny human child and I am Suffering Greatly, alas and alack I am ready to embrace the void”
and for the rest of their stay if the people do anything that hinders the proceedings of the diplomatic mission Qui Gon plays the “My Child is Sick and I am Concerned for His Health” card like
“YOU FOOL those terms are absolutely out of the question–you are swindling us–”
“HOW DARE YOU ACCUSE ME OF SUCH CRIMES–”
“aHEM OH I am so WORRIED for my SMALL CHILD who is currently ILL is there ANY WAY we could reach a COMPROMISE so I can go CHECK UP on his FALTERING HEALTH”
“Oh, of course, my apologies–”
“Perhaps I have been too rash, indeed maybe if we did this–?”
They’re out of there in like three days and are sent back to Coruscant with glowing praise and a literal mountain of gifts and trinkets for Obi Wan. Amazing.
