Waking Up Dead - ChibiObiwan (araedan)
Obi-Wan's in the caves of Ilum when he falls 30 years into the past.

Delightful Obi-Wan/Qui-Gonn slowburn and kudos for being set during Xanatos' time as Qui-Gonn's padawan, but even at 44k important plot points can feel rushed. Fun read, but does get a little whump-heavy.

Ouroboros Series - bedlamsbard
Pt. I - Wake the Storm, complete 75k

Pt. II - Queen's Gambit, complete 354k

+ two other incomplete side-stories

These are officially complete, but probably would nto be satisfying for fans of neatly tied off storylines. In Wake the Storm, Anakin from the Clone Wars travels 20 years into the future and Darth Vader from A New Hop/Empire Strikes Back travels 20 years back in time. In Queen's Gambit, the same device that originally sent Anakin forward in time, sends him, Obi-Wan, Padme, and Cody to a universe where Qui-Gonn never picked up Anakin on Tatooine and after his death Obi-Wan left the Jedi Order and became Queen Amidala's lover and bodyguard.

Incredibly tightly written, plotted, and characterized. The sort of fic you don't even notice being 350k.
