Hot take: Qui-Gon's survival would have contributed to keeping Anakin stable and not prone to attachment.
This is not because Qui-Gon would have been a better master than Obi-Wan, but because Qui-Gon's immediate death after playing such a crucial role in Anakin's life contributed majorly to his traumas regarding the loss of people important to him, which was a massive element of his later attachment issues.
Anakin left his mom and immediately experienced the death of the new adult in his life. Not just another separation, but full on death. The books even mention that he used to go sleep in front of Obi-Wan's door or on the floor next to Obi-Wan's bed (which Obi-Wan was unaware of until he woke up) because he was so scared that Someone Else Was Going To Leave Him.
I think it's understandable for the Jedi to underestimate how much Qui-Gon's death affected Anakin, because they did only know each other for like. Three days. And the Jedi probably didn't know just how much Qui-Gon impacted Anakin's life in a personal sense, rather than as just Some Distant Official.
And in the subsequent fallout of Anakin's Many Traumas, he fixated on two people:
Obi-Wan, an older brother slash father figure that was an authority on a personal level, and around him constantly, and basically took the Mom role that Shmi had had.
Palpatine, and elderly grandfather figure that was not a personal authority (telling him when to go to bed, what to eat, etc), that he only saw occasionally and would indulge him, and basically took on the Qui-Gon role.
Like there's this major crack in Anakin's foundation that needed patching up, and because it wasn't competently filled---because Obi-Wan was also grieving and cracked open, and Palpatine was malicious---we end up with a guy who has a whole FUCKTON of attachment issues.
I feel like Qui-Gon's death and its impact on Anakin, not just Obi-Wan, tends to get undersold by fandom at large.

The Road goes ever on and on Down from the dune where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say.
"Master? I have never heard of this song."
"Oh yes, I learnt it from the uh - the planet Middle Earth."

Anyone see that recent new Obi and Anakin short comic where it showed this chaos weapon™️ Obi-Wan made as a Padawan? HAHAHA if not, here is a link to the panels! And idea credit for this goes to @agirlunderarock. Qui Gon seeing this new invention of Obi’s prob would have aged him 10 years lol. Padawan Obi was a chaos gremlin.

I’ve been really into costuming lately so I thought it’s be fun to do Star Wars if it were a medieval fantasy
