Gimmie some fluffy Han and Leia headcannon a please!
1. After Han is released from carbonite, every few months he gets really awful migraines but he refuses to go to a doctor because they don’t hit him that often and he doesn’t really want to admit that he can’t tough it out. Whenever he gets them he lies with his head in Leia’s lap and closes his eyes and she rubs his temples and his neck and shoulders and threads her fingers through his hair until he feels better (also she eventually persuades him to get some freaking meds because really Han why would you want to suffer needlessly?)
2. Leia skipped meals way more than was healthy during the rebellion because she was so obsessive about working that she would either forget or deliberately not take breaks to eat because she felt whatever she was doing was more important (or if she was in a bad headspace and had no appetite or really didn’t want to lose the distraction of focusing on a task in order to go to the mess hall), and Han noticed a lot but he knew Leia could get touchy about it, so he’d just subtly leave sandwiches at her post for her or send Threepio with something or tell him to go nag her, or he’d “coincidentally” invite her and Luke for a big dinner on the Falcon if he knew she’d skipped lunch that day. For a while he didn’t mention anything to her about it so that he didn’t get her hackles up and also so that he didn’t hurt her pride, but they both knew what he was doing.
3. Leia looks ABSOLUTELY ABSURD towards the end of her pregnancy because she is So Smol and when someone that little is walking around with a hugely pregnant belly it’s hilarious, and Han can’t decide if seeing her that way is the most beautiful, most endearing, most adorable and yet hilarious thing ever or if it’s literally the most terrifying thing he’s ever seen because fuck there’s a baby in there that he’s gonna have to raise and what if he messes it up somehow??? And he also feels kinda bad for liking the way Leia looks so pregnant with their child, because she gets pretty miserable and uncomfortable the bigger she gets, and Han is kind of beside himself trying to make her comfortable and hating nature for making it so unfair because she has to do like 99% of the work as far as carrying and having the baby and all he had to do was make love to her, and as a result he gets really serious about his duty to make things as easy as possible for Leia even though she always insists that she’s fine. Leia thinks it’s simultaneously very sweet and also exasperating. Han doesn’t smother her though or go nuts because really he knows that Leia can gauge her own limitations and take care of herself pregnant or not, but really why wouldn’t he get up at 1 AM to make her a weird snack when she can’t even SLEEP because their kid keeps kicking her???
4. Han and Leia find an orphaned baby rixx cat in the jungle that Leia insists they have to rescue, and Han reluctantly agrees to let the thing live in the Falcon. The perks are that whenever she’s not in the command center she’s in his ship brushing the rixx and feeding it and playing with it and cleaning up after it, but the cons are that Han has a baby animal getting into all his stuff and following him around everywhere and never giving him a moments peace. Leia very lovingly makes the rixx cat a bed to sleep in in one of the cargo holds, taking one of his crates and lining it with plenty of nice blankets, but Han finds the thing asleep in his bunk CONSTANTLY, even when he could swear he sealed the door to the bunk room. Finally one morning Han wakes up to find the rixx cat soundly asleep pressed right up against his chest, and he can’t convince himself any longer that he doesn’t have a soft spot for the little thing. For the sake of his pride he still half-heartedly pretends to be annoyed about it in front of Leia and Chewie and Luke, but no one believes him, and secretly Leia loves watching Han with the rixx, and Han knows deep down that he’d never be able to hate something that Leia loves and cares for so tenderly, and he’d never be able to really hold a grudge against an animal that was so loyal to and protective of Leia.
Neither of them is really sure when the rixx cat stops being Leia’s rixx cat and becomes distinctly THEIR rixx cat.
Just for funsies. Something ridiculous that I doodled (very hastily) while eating lunch when I was in Ohio during the hurricane evacuation! Sorry for lack of uploads, I’m very busy and very stressed haha.
essays are tangents and rabbit holes and diversions, woven together with lots of unnecessary descriptive words to demonstrate a proficient understanding of a subject you were meant to research in more depth but did not, in place of other pursuits, or could not, because you chose your subject poorly, and so now you must flesh out an arduous ten-page research paper and convince your scrutinizing instructor that you are well-versed in the topic at hand.
emails are blunt. say what you mean. be specific. end it quickly.
