    Title: Ice-Fishing For A Princess
    Author: Cowgirl Jedi 1701
    Characters: Han & Leia, obviously.
    Time Period: Early ESB-ish
    Author Notes: I was listening to some good old Golden Oldies over breakfast, when this plot bunny jumped into my lap and refused to get off.

    Hoth angel, Hoth angel
    Will you be mine?
    My darling dear
    Love you all the time
    I’m just a fool
    A fool in love with you

    Leia didn’t know who was singing, but he sure had a nice voice. She put down the datapad she was working with and just closed her eyes to listen.

    Hoth angel, Hoth angel
    The one I adore
    Love you forever
    And ever more
    I’m just a fool
    A fool in love with you

    I fell for you and I knew
    The vision of your love-loveliness

    The singing stopped abruptly, and the voice Leia heard behind her was one she recognized.

    “Why am I singing this poodoo? Sure, I think she’s gorgeous, but I don’t stutter over it. That’s more your line, farm boy.”

    “I know. Just quit griping and sing. She’ll like it. Trust me.”

    “Okay, okay, fine.” He began again, a couple lines before where he’d stopped.

    Leia smiled. Now that she knew who was singing, she was really going to enjoy this.

    I fell for you and I knew
    The vision of your love-loveliness
    I hope and I pray that someday
    I’ll be the vision of your hap-happiness

    Hoth angel, Hoth angel
    Please be mine
    My darling dear
    Love you all the time
    I’m just a fool
    A fool in love with you

    I fell for you and I knew
    The vision of your loveliness
    I hope and pray that someday
    That I’ll be the vision of your happiness

    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

    Hoth angel, Hoth angel
    Please be mine
    My darling dear
    Love you all the time
    I’m just a fool
    A fool in love
    With you-ooou

    Leia’s smile turned into a grin. She knew this was the part where she was supposed to run to run to him and rave about how well he sang (and she wouldn’t be lying, because he did sing very well), but she didn’t want to let the scoundrel win that easily. She’d been around him long enough to know that the more she played hard to get, the more he would want her. She’d given up denying that she was attracted to him, but if he really wanted her, he’d have to work for it. Let the man stew a while. She knew it wouldn’t take long for him to react to her response (or lack of one). He was stubborn, but he was also impatient.

    He reacted.

    “Frell it all, Luke. Her Worshipfulness can go to Hell. And you can go there too, for talking me into doing this in the first place.”

    “Don’t wait for me too long.”


    Leia ignored Han’s cussing her. She knew he wasn’t really mad at her, just frustrated because his serenade hadn’t gotten immediate results. Maybe she would tell him how nice his singing was later. Maybe. Luke’s snarky rejoinder was answered by a very Wookie-sounding guffaw, and it was all Leia could do not to bust out laughing and give herself away.

    This is why Thou Shalt Honor Thy Plot Bunnies! It was very cute, especially that Leia was pleased, but wasn't going to let him know it (yet). Not to mention Han complaining in the middle of his song. And the choice of song is a nice echo of Anakin's asking Padme if she was an angel.

    Well done, @Cowgirl Jedi 1701!

    @Cowgirl Jedi 1701: It is amazing how much warmth you bring to a place like Hooth with just a song. ;) And while I read your story from whom Leia inherited her wicked (Carrie Fisher) humour: her daddy. She truly is Ani´s girl after all.

    And of course she won't let him know. XD

    This was fun! I can just imagine Han standing there, singing this cute little love song totally against his will or better judgment or something, in hopes that it will Get Results with Her Worshipfulness—but he doesn't count on Leia's cleverness in working his scoundrelly impatience and stubbornness to her own purposes. :D Yep, Mr. ScoundrelPants, you're going to have to work for this Hoth Angel—and the process of doing so is going to be one of those "two steps forward one step back" type things, so better brush up on your patience and persistence! (I know you can do it! :p )

    I didn't even think of that. Just heard the song and was simultaneously assaulted by the plot bunny.

    Again, never entered my head.

    Of course not.:D

    Against his will, not so much. Against his better judgement, probably. The rest of your comment, oh yeah, totally.

    Thanks everybody for the likes, both official and commentary.

    This is pretty funny; I'm not sure if the interruptions added humor or ruined the mood of the song.

    Either way a fun read. :)

    I can see Luke talking a reluctant Han into singing Earth Angel... and he really should have actually sung it to her. Heee!!!!!! (However, his being cranky about the whole thing? Totally in character!)

    Well done. :)
