This was very, very good. I thought Han's comment about Lando was hilarious. The only possible way this could have been better would be if Chewie was in it. Either way, great job.

Nice to see it archived ;)

This story just makes me wonder--how many times in how many different places by how many different people have Han and Leia been married?
Very well written though.

Oh, how precious, Ish! How did I miss this one? And the cover art was priceless... congrats all around!

Martyn, methinks I did it about 50 times over the years... This one is my favorite, though, because it's not entirely serious.

Hey, Ish! I'm back, and I totally love the coverart! Completely hilarious!
Oh, yes... the story.
Well, you already read my review on the boards, but this is hilarious! Totally believable and completely in character. I loved it!

This is wonderful! I remember reading it on the boards earlier, and I was happy to see it here! I can just imagine Han nagging Leia about a thing like that. Great cover art and story; I really enjoyed reading it!

Hence the "Alternative Universe" designation ;)
I appreciate all the positive feedback on the cover art. I had fun making it for Ishy.

Ah. I was beginning to wonder if they'd forgotten to put the AU title on there. Kudos to Arin for taking my twisted ideas for cover art, making them make sense, then making them reality.

Liked that a lot! I hear their voices and see facial expressions when reading your dialogue, very vivid and in-character. A good read.

Brilliant! You really captured the characters. I love how you expanded on the marriage ceremony theat Dave Wolverton left out *grr*. Your work is beautiful and hilarious, and i hope to read more of it.

Great bit of fun, Ish.
[i]"Lando will kiss anything if it stands still for half a second," he grumbled. "Is he another of your conquests?"[/i]
LOL That was one of the many pieces of repartee I enjoyed.
And the cover art was spot on.
Thanks for a welcome bit of levity.

It was hilarious, funny and just, well...
I loved it, very enjoyable, but one comment is maybe, Han should have talked with chewbacca, or chewie at least in the story. (but that's my opinion).
Also, wouldn't Han be a little... over dramatic maybe? I don't know. I don't really know the character well, (I'm more of a fan of P/A), but oh well.
Loved it though.

It looks like you wrote it in five minutes. It has little direction, and it's like you're being slapped directly in a scene, and you're supposed to care what they are talking about. No lead up, or direction of character. One of your weakest pieces by far for such obvious little effort.

Say I.'s Comments:
But(and pardon me)
Why does she feel the need to confess? A grateful peck shouldn't be remembered guiltily, let alone confessed right before a wedding. The idea that she needs to 'confess' what she claims was an innocent, grateful act, as though there was something sexual about it, just...
ICK! ICK! ICK!
I'm confused I guess.
Why would she need to confess that to begin with? And why would Han care?
Date posted: 12/12/2004 6:52:52 AM
I'm not quite sure I understand what's going on here. I know that this is a humor piece and has an "AU" designation, but...it just seems so contrived. If my boyfriend was sitting in carbonite somewhere and his best friend found a way to get him out, and I kissed this best friend in a platonic way out of happiness and gratitude, I don't think my boyfriend would care. In fact, I don't think it would even occur to me (or any other woman) to mention it, especially right before getting married.
The point is, I just can't see two grown adults having this conversation, especially Han and Leia, even in a humorous AU piece. A similar piece about something Han or Leia might actually get upset about may have been more effective.
Your writing in and of itself is pretty good. I think you had the right idea with the banter between Han and Leia, but with the motivation of kissing a Wookiee behind it, the dialogue fizzled when it could've sizzled.

That was a very entertaining read! It just felt like Star Wars. Nice job. You successfully captured the emotion and humor of the original trilogy. :)

This is supposed to be a humour piece, right?
Aside from feeling like I need a long shower, my one complaint might be the rather uninspiring earth-based wedding. That sapped the Star Wars out of it.
Date posted: 1/2/2005 5:27:42 PM
Interesting piece, but I don't think Han would call Chewbacca "My Wookie." That was just bugging me the whole time I was reading it.

Oh my God. This story was awesome! You did a really good job with it...I loved the sarcasm you gave Han, and Luke was the perfect big brother...This was awesome!

What I meant was that both Dave Wolverton and I think its Poul Davis or something like that have married Han and Leia. (It was a junior novel or something.) And I'm not immune to it myself--I've married a bunch of the X-wing pilots several times. (I mean, I married them to their spouses--not that *I* married them...:-P) Still a fun story, though.

Leia's confession... one word: hilarious! Han's reaction was perfect and the thing about throwing the towel made me laugh for whatever reasons. Brilliant!
Date posted: 3/11/2005 3:25:12 PM
I just noticed something. You only had Leia say "I do" and not Han. You might want to edit that a little bit. Nothing major, just something I noticed.
Date posted: 3/16/2005 3:14:04 PM
You're right, i don't have that, but it's implied in him repeating the vows. Thanks for catching that.

I try and read this every once in a while, and I thought, "Well, maybe I should leave a note while I'm at it!"
This is one of my favorite fics...it's just so funny! I love the simple wedding, Han's reaction to Leia kissing Chewie, and Han calling Chewie "his" Wookiee. It's perfect!
