palace of jabba

remember when Leia dressed in a dead man’s clothes, dragged one of her best friends into Jabba’s palace in chains, activated a detonator she was holding and kept holding it while staring down Jabba’s thugs and all the guns pointed at her, sold her friend to Jabba, rescued her boyfriend–who she knew was blind–and dramatically whipped off her disguise to give a clever one-liner and make out with him.

like it was a terrible plan in the first place, but you can never be more Iconic than that

Anyone, derisively: Man, that one part with [whatever] in Star Wars was so ridiculous.
Me, dreamily: Yeah. Wasn’t it great?! 

  • Luke Skywalker: (comes to Jabba's palace with a fresh haircut/dye job combo, entire new wardrobe, $500 boots, and a handmade lightsaber with HS carved into it) hello Han I'm here to rescue you
  • Han Solo: (can't see shit)
  • Luke Skywalker: (keeps the outfit on for 12 hours until his vision is restored)

anonymous asked:

Would you like it if Han Solo's anthology included a subplot of him being friends with Boba Fett?

I see dramatic possibility there. I don’t really see Fett as having “friends,” but I would have no problem with the implication that while Han was working for Jabba they were somewhat friendly, and it would add a little more subtext to Fett tracking Han to Cloud City. Because of course he knows Han would go to Lando for help. 

“He’s no good to me dead.”

SUBTEXT: Oh fuck, don’t kill him. If I take him to Jabba alive he’s got about a 15% chance of talking himself out of this and I sort of owe him for that one time on Malastare.

Part 2

Summary: The reader is Han’s younger sister who wanders off while Han is doing business and bumps into Luke.

Word Count: 4000+

Warnings: None that I know of! Lmk if I missed anything!  

The dry heat of Tatooine was unfamiliar. Wind-blown particles of sand stuck to your skin, and the distrusting attitude of the crowds outside the hangar was strong enough to be felt. You folded your arms over your chest, refusing to let fidgeting betray your anxiety. This was your first time away from home.

You were grateful to at least have the familiarity of the Falcon, your older brother Han, and his co-pilot Chewbacca just behind you. As far as Han knew, you had inherited the Solo sense of adventure and couldn’t stand being stuck on Corellia while Han had all the fun. In reality, you had asked to travel with him because you were terrified of being alone.
