Forgive me if you've been asked this before, but I was wondering if Han and Leia ever made up for their lost dance from Chewie's September party? Though you have written that Leia was a graceful dancer, I head cannon that Han enjoys dancing with Leia, even though he feels like he's not good at it. Your stories/snippets/musings always bring such joy to my day- thank you so much for sharing them!
Hello dear lils! I have been asked that but I cannot forgive you for asking again because it’s a great question, evidence of a plot point I’ve neglected! And anything that brings you to my mail is wonderful, so. You bring so much joy to everyone in our fandom and to me hugely in particular so thank you you lovely soul.
They have not ever made up for it, no! To answer your question, I’m currently exploring just this very thing in a short segment in the upcoming “Han Solo and Dancing,” a collection in response to another prompt. I get the sense Han’s still burnt, a little. Not vindictively or anything, just…baffled and not good at dealing with hurt feelings or about things that he’s, you’re quite right to say, not confident about, like dancing. I mean it was public and they’ve never talked about it! But after all the craziness has settled, I dunno about you but I get the sense it would sting them both for myriad reasons. Worth considering, I think.
Thanks so much for asking!
