Snurched from jedibuttercup:



You scored as Qui-Gon Jinn. You are Qui-Gon Jinn; respected for your wisdom and strong connection to The Force yet considered unorthodox and defiant by the Jedi Council. You rescued Anakin Skywalker from Tatooine because you believed him to be The Chosen One.

You train the lightsaber form Ataru in which The Force is used to aid physical skill to achieve an amazing combination of speed, accuracy and acrobatics.

A diplomat before a warrior, you fell in battle to Darth Maul though your apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi avenged you. You were the first Jedi to achieve a preservation of personal identity after death.

Why, thank you. *g*

And the world needs more QuiGon fic, especially gen.

Oh, goodness, yes. I stopped looking a long time ago because it was too depressing for genficcer like me--just about anything with Qui-Gon was slash! wtf, I ask you.

The current potential inspiration comes from this juxapotsition:
respected for your wisdom and strong connection to The Force.... You were the first Jedi to achieve a preservation of personal identity after death.

Which, duh, I know all that, but then there's the thought: was that accomplishment because of his strong connection to the Force, as is suggested? And if so, does that mean he was far more in tune with it than ANY Jedi before him? And does that mean that the Force, far from wanting all life to "return" to it and be dissolved into one, instead somehow prefers that people retain their identities?

Because Qui-Gon is the Jedi who least treats the Force like a "tool" for his own ends.

Sorry. Jedi philosophy warps my brain. :-)

LOL I don't blame you... Jedi philosophy warps my brain, too - and I play one in an RPG.

Oh my word. Have we had this conversation before? We must talk. :-)

I don't think we have, though I know we had some other conversations about the Jedi pre-and-post Empire (religion vs. the Living Force, and all that).

Yes, we should talk. :-)

Also, I need a Star Wars icon.

I enjoy those types of discussions, especially since I tend toward the somewhat-unfavorable Potentium view of the Force. :-D

And re: the icon...give me a little while. ;-)

*beams* I hoped that hint would generate some thoughts.

Unless something comes up, I shall be with some RL movie-buff friends, watching Patton. Which will be fun, but darn, it's been a while since we chatted on MSN and icons are yay. *sigh*

Yup...well, I'll be on most of Saturday while puttering around the house taking care of necessaries. And probably on tomorrow evening as well, around 9ish to the mid-wee hours.

Oh, that reminds me, I totally need to see if Patton is still on On-Demand...

Because the more faith you have, the more likely your prayers are to be answered? Because the more faith you have, the more likely it is that your own ends are in line with God's?

That's kind of the direction I'm headed, yeah. :-)

I maintain that Qui-Gon is the only Jedi we see in any of the films who is really what a Jedi should be: fully in tune with the Force, and as a result, ending up exactly where he needs to be, helping exactly the people who need it most at exactly the right moments. Other people screw it up, but he's bang on--till he gets killed, anyway.

One could argue that he was bang-on even after he got killed... (grin)

DAH-HAHAHA!

Oh boy. It'd have to be Ascended!Daniel, probably from "Abyss." Actually, Daniel in his Abydosian cloak would look even better.

Yeah, when I said that, I totally was thinking of oatmealsweater!Daniel from Abyss, there are many fine poses that would work. *hee*

But oh my yes, Daniel in the robes would be...perfect. So Jedi-like.

Which would be more fun? Daniel in Jedi-disguise, or ordinary Daniel, as a Force Ghost?

Heeee. I believe I've run across this (or heard about it; I'm certainly familiar with the Michael Shanks comment), but haven't read it.

Part of me thinks it needs some kind of text, but I have no idea what. If I think of anything, I'll let you know. :-)

It does, I was trying to think of something that A: would fit Jedi Daniel and B: be small enough for my letterboxed pic, but nothing's come up yet.
