WOW

Addendum to last night's Wild Space squeefest: I didn't think I could possibly love Karen Miller more. She understands the characters, she writes them as I would have, her book is shippy, yadda yadda. But then. THEN. I get to THIS passage, on page 152-153, Bail Organa's POV, speaking with Padmé after another apartment meeting with Obi-Wan. It is as follows, AND I QUOTE:

"And you can trust Obi-Wan. You really can."

Master Kenobi. "He's quite intimidating, isn't he? Even for a Jedi."

"Just a little bit," she agreed, and pulled a face.

""You two seem ... close."

Startled, she stared at him. Then she shook her head. "No. Not really. At least - sort of -" She tugged at her loosely bound hair. "It's complicated."

Was she in love with Kenobi? he wondered. If so, complicated didn't begin to describe the situation. She trusted the man, that much was obvious. Kenobi trusted her, too, and that was interesting. It might not be love, but there was definitely something between them, something beyond a polite acquaintanceship or the mere political give-and-take between the Senate and the Jedi.


YES. YOU READ THAT RIGHT. LET ME JUST REPEAT IT IN CASE YOU DIDN'T CATCH IT THE FIRST TIME. WAS SHE IN LOVE WITH KENOBI? AND THEN A WHOLE FRAKKING PARAGRAPH OF SPECULATORY TEXT.

This, I do believe, is as close to canonical sanctioning as the Obi-Wan/Padmé ship has ever received. It's at the very least equal to what we saw in Stover's Revenge of the Sith novelization. And frankly, I'm still stunned that it's in there. But it is.

This post brought to you by the letters S and Q, the letters U, E and E, and the exclamation point. XD
