I just loved this one. It's so rare to see anything from Owen's point of view, and this did a marvelous job of capturing both his gruffness and the genuine love he surely felt for Luke. Additionally, children can be extremely tricky to write, but your Luke here is very genuinely childlike as well as still recognizably Luke, which is just wonderful to read. Great job with this. :)

This is sooo cute!!! It made me laugh, and think of my own brothers. You did a really excellent job! Any chance you have something about a young Leia up your sleeve? Or maybe the Solo kids?

That was sooo cute! It sounds like my brother and I. Or my mom and my brother. OR my dad and my brother. This was a great fic, one of my favorites.

This was so wonderful! I could picture my brothers doing this. I especily loved the last line. This story made me want to cry one moment and then laugh really hard.

I love this one so much! You capture the adventuresome spirit of young Luke so perfectly, and it's nice to see a fic that highlights the "father/son" relationship between Owen and Luke.

Aww. I kept thinking of my little sister in this- she does the whole 'too-cute-to-be-cross-with' thing too.

This is a very sweet story about a very sweet boy. I loved him for 25 years before I lost my heart to one Frodo Baggins but I think Luke and Frodo have much in common which is probably why both captured me. I could definitely see both in this story - or maybe Luke and a mischeivous Took more like. :)

I LOVE to see Owen as a loving guardian and Luke's early life as being happy. Too many stories focus on the tension between Luke and his uncle and I love to see something from another point of view!!
How about something about Leia putting Bail through the same hassle? After all, they ARE Skywalkers!!!

Very good and very cute! This was a good job with 1st person point of view as well.
"“I said I’ll try,” Luke explained patiently. “That’s different…” He looked up at me to see if I grasped the finer points of his argument. " - love this line. Like so many others, it shows a complexity beyond a seven-year-old, but you still manage to capture the sweetness of a young -albeit mischeivous - little boy. Thanks for writing this!

Wow! Very heartwarming story, and I'm quite impressed with your use of first person--that options overlooked all to often. Well done!
