I'd like to thank my wonderful beta readers obaona (*hugs and waves, dearest!*) and Tycalibur. Also, a BIG thank you to Cosmic for her almost prescient ability to do cover art just the way I like it--great job, Cosmic!

I've been looking forward to reading this story since I was presented with the challenge of making a cover for it -- "something funny," was the instruction as far as I can recall. I had fun trying to find fitting pictures. The story that you've written was more hilarious, though. Especially how... unknowing... C3PO was about certain "night activities" -- lol!

Great job!

Good one, LP, and congratulations. You know how I feel about this one.

The characters really come to life in this very hilarious fiction. I can hear Harrison Ford's voice screaming about his dental cleaner. I can also hear Anthony Daniel's voice all the way through this one.

A great addition to the Archives, LP!

hi-la-ri-ous! :-)
wow, this was well done! indeed - i hate repeating, but i can't help it - i could hear Harrison's voice every step of the way, and 3PO's muttering and exclaiming "oh my!"... but *all* the characters and their interactions were very well orchestrated.
for as far as a short story, and a humouristic one at that, can go - this is genius.
*bows in respect.*

My GOD, but this was funny! I was laughing so hard, I almost cried! And telling it from Threepio's fussy point of view just made it funnier. Good job, Lady Padme! *bows* :p

LOL! LP, this is the first humor fanfic I've read, and WOW, was it hilarious! Amusing how it's always Han who's fed up with the droids, and you portrayed him *and* Threepio beautifully. Amazing, as usual.

Sweet holy mother of the Force, this was HILARIOUS!!!

Threepio's characterization was PERFECT, and so was Artoo's. Not to mention that I could literally see Han Solo when I read it... ;)

"Mini-rod" - ROTFLMAO!!!

Wonderfully written. I loved the way you incorporated the sense of the tragedy and foreboding into the story while still maintaining a light-hearted prose. I never thought I would say it, but I can't believe Artoo could be so cruel and callous. What a bad, bad droid.

Bloody fantastic. I startled my computers class when I broke out laughing and couldn't stop when "Mini-Rod" intruded on Han and Leia... 'making noise' :)

Excellent work!

obaona's Comments:

Loved it. ;) But hey, you knew that already.

I love the premise of this - its very different from most SW stories, simply taking a normal time (no evil bad guys taking over the universe, kidnappers, or creatures Jedi can't feel in the Force this time!) and writing about it. It was also lovely to see Artoo and Threepio take the lead roles in a story - we see in the movies that they are nearly (or more?) as intregal to the storyline of SW as the living and breathing characters.

But definitely what I liked best about this was Threepio. Not only do you wonderfully get across Threepio's actions, you put down his thoughts perfectly. Every little thing - from using a weird word to going off on a weird tangent about where the droid came from - was perfectly in character.

Good job! :D

The line at the end about Master Anaking being interested in trying to repair Mopsy....this makes me think of the start of the 'Ambush At Correlia' from the Correlian Trilogy..wonder if they used some of Mopsy's parts in their droid ;)

Tee hee . . . Very funny, and I could just imagine Han yelling insults at Mopsy in Force-knows how many languages! Both him and C3PO perfectly in character. HILARIOUS!!

My other favorite fella (the Correllian) is well drawn here. Believe me, some attempts make him so 2-D. I knew I could expect something good from the author of "Memories of Rain." ;)

This is beyond "Good." In a different genre, yet! This is great. thank you so much :)

The above comments say everything I could say from a positive angle. I absolutely laughed out loud at many points in this story. The end was fairly disappointing though. I have a hard time believing that Artoo would just fry the little guy....sabotage his activities, yes, kill him, no.

Yet again you make me laugh Lady Padme! this sounds so much like Threepio that I found myself wondering if you aren't actually C-3P0!! Just kidding, of course. I doubt Threepio can write as well as you. :D

Keep writing!
Thank the Maker!!! :)

Fantastic. This has to be my favorite story on the site. Your fanfic was extremely well-written and definitely worthy of the genre of humor. The Star Wars characters were captured perfectly. Very humorous.

i stumbled across this while surfing about and i have to say...absolutely brilliant! everyone was very in character and everything , and it was generally rather hilarious. however.. i do have one very small bone to pick... correct me if i'm wrong (i probably am, and am probably overlooking some huge obvious fact and consequently making myself look like a moron... but... if Han and Leia are happily together at this point, wouldn't that mean tat 'young master anakin' (who might be interesting in fixing mopsy) would now have become Vader? and dead?
anyway, good job! :D

I'm very new to this site (like today new). And I'm not totally aware of the SWU timeline. But isn't Han Solo a General by the time he has kids?

Maybe he was demoted I dunno.

Either way. Great story! Well told. Pitch perfect C-3PO

Cute story, well-written. :)

I think you could have had Leia do or say something at the very end besides shake her head and run off after Han. It seemed a bit out of character.

It also would have been cool to see the kids interact in the situation some.

Overall though I really liked it. I really liked that you chose a first-person POV, not many people do that.
