The modern adventures of Han and Ben Kylo (Manip AU)

Han finally tries to reach out to his son with the gift of comedy. Unfortunately for him, Kylo is a shitbird who likes ruining everything.

The rest of the series is here

(It’s been three months since the last one but I’ve finally done my 50th Modern Solo Adventures post! Thanks for sticking with me, guys! x)

“To sense the invisible and to be able to create it — that is art.”

Hans Hofmann was born #onthisday in 1880. The abstract expressionist was also an influential modern art teacher, whose students included Lee Krasner, Helen Frankenthaler, and Joan Mitchell.

Since we are on the theme of fanfictions, what would be your Han x Leia fic Wishlist? I like the idea behind that AU earlier today, but i'm interested in what you'd like to see and hope for people to be inspired and get to work! ((-:

There are a few tropes I’d like to see, better explored:

  • The AU where Han and Leia sleep together way before ESB and try to work out whatever their relationship is
  • The modern AU where Han and Leia meet, angry flirt with each other, and have a one night stand, only to be in the same meeting the following day and realize they’re business associates
  • The Bespin AU where Han’s unfrozen later and Leia’s pregnant
  • The AU where Han and Leia separate shortly after ROTJ for some stupid reason and are thrown back together for a mission/adventure
  • A Bodyguard AU where Bail hires Han to look after Leia when she’s a senator/spy – I’ve seen it done a few times and it was quite good, but none of those were ever finished
  • The AU where they don’t actually go to Bespin, but rather some other planet
  • The AU where Han and Leia run away together after Hoth, and Leia has to deal with working with Han, hiding and battling between what she wants and what her duty is
  • The classic fake dating fic where they have to pretend to be married on a mission and end up admitting to their feelings

I think most of these have been done before but I’d love to see more takes on them, I guess.

The Modern Adventures Of Han Solo And Kylo Ren Are The GIFs Every Galaxy Needs

Modern Solo Adventures by Mamalaz.

One great thing that’s come out of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is making fun of that emo little Sith Kylo Ren, particularly when his tantrums become an SNL sketch that inspires tattoos and action figures. And, at this point, it shouldn’t be a spoiler anymore to mention he’s Ben Solo, the son of Han and Leia. Seriously, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, you probably don’t care about it. For the rest of us who have seen it, we can be amused at the thought of a permanently cynical Han and a stressed out Princess– oops, General — Leia trying to raise a lanky emo kid who’s obsessed with grandpa and fascism.

Which makes it even sweeter that Mamalaz over on Tumblr has spent this past week creating a magnificent series of GIFs called “Modern Solo Adventures” which use footage of Adam Driver, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Billy Dee Williams from other movies to make a modern version of Kylo Ren: The Teenage Years. We know Matt the radar technician would probably love these (or throw an insane tantrum, it’s either or, really). And, hey, you don’t have to look at them if you don’t think they’re cool. *hurls GIFs across room*
