    AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! He's alive!!! HE'S ALIVE!!!Hehe... sorry... just got a bit excited there. I would've seen this last night, but I got forced off my computer, just as I will be in a moment (class). I hate that. :p

    Anyway... have them land on Coruscant for crying out loud. I want a reunion! :)

    Yay!!! He's back!!
    And it looks like Leia will be getting some warning, too. Loved how Luke used the same phrase Vader used in ANH. :)
    Very realistic description of hibernation sickness after 7 years, I thought. Just like it was in ROTJ only much worse. And I liked how Lando didn't want to fill him in on what had really happened--I wouldn't want to either if I was him! ;)

    REUNION!!!!!!!

    Oooh, that was great! I *love* how he doesn't remember Bespin yet. I wonder if he'll be more suspicious when he wakes up again.

    I know there are different schools of thought on this -- that in the "canon" version carbon freeze was the "big wide-awake nothing," but I've always preferred to think that it was instantaneous -- that one minute he was being lowered into the freezing chamber, and the very next he was coming out, suddenly in a different place, without any idea of how much time had gone by. So I?m selfishly glad that this AU seems to subscribe to the latter theory. :)

    COMPLETELY on the edge of my seat ? hope for another post VERY soon!!

    Somtimes I
    fantasize
    when the streets are cold and lonely
    and the cars they burn below me.
    Don't these times
    fill your eyes
    when the streets are cold and lonely
    and the cars they burn below me.

    Are you all alone?
    Are you made of stone?

    Ooooh, *shiver*. So appropriate, on so many levels.

    This was a very elaborate way to get this thread UP!!!!!!!!! :)


    EDIT: Hey, it looks like my "up" wasn't necessary after all............:D
    ..still a cool quote though.......

    Ah, yes. That quote's from the song "Made of Stone" by the now defunct british group "The Stone Roses"

    Which incidently, is what my screen name is a play on. :)

    Heh heh, yeah I thought I was time to wake up Han, before you all boycotted my thread in mass protest.

    Hee hee "mass".

    I think I'm getting ahead of myself here....anyways, I'm glad you seem to like. :) More soon.

    Hurry! I've got to be at work in two hours, and I don't want to wait almost 7 hours before seeing more of this (assuming I am able to get on when I get home). I'm dying here! ^_~

    That was great StonedRose! (Sorry, I've been offline all day) I loved seeing Han come out of the carbon freezing. :) I can't wait to see what happens next. Will it be Luke and Leia talking? Lando calling Chewie? The dreaded conversation between Han and Lando?

    Wow, I actually got recommended?? Too cool. unfortunately, I am in no state to add on tonight (a good friend called me up earlier and was like 'I have to get drunk tonight'-- rough week) so I can barely find the keys on the keyboard. But I assure you, I have been dilligently plowing away at this story and you can expect another post VERY SOON. I appreciate all the feedback (but of course, you know I do!)

    Thanks for reading,

    Stoned Rose :D

    P.S. set271-yeah, I like the instantaneous view too. It's too depressing to think of Han being semi-conscious during the whole thing.

    I'm back. Sorry for the delay. Here you go guys, I hope you enjoy! :-D



    "Momma?"

    Leia snapped her head up with a start. The fierceness of the morning light caused her to quickly cover her eyes. "Bailey," she gasped in surprise. "What are you doing up?"

    The boy tugged at the bottom of his lip nervously. "It's breakfast time."

    Leia squinted in confusion. The sunlight reflected brightly through the kitchen windows and cut sharply through her sleep-induced haze. Leia rubbed her eyes tiredly and the room slowly came into focus. A quick glance at the chrono on the wall showed that it was indeed early morning. Leia rubbed the cramp out of the back of her neck as she noted her mug still sitting in front of her; the tea long gone cold. "So it is," she conceded. She looked back at her son, standing there in his 'Space Racer' pajamas, his hair still disheveled from sleep. "Are you hungry?"

    The boy nodded slowly, his gaze still questioning. He was no doubt curious as to why his mother had been sleeping at the kitchen table. Leia gave him a comforting smile, "Why don't you go tell Threepio to fix you something," she stifled a small yawn, "Momma's got to get ready for work."

    Bailey gave another small nod, but did not move. He stared at her imploringly, his eyes wide. His fingers still tugged thoughtfully at his bottom lip. Leia gave her son a questioning look. "Honey," she asked, "what's wrong?"

    The boy didn't answer.

    Leia's eyebrows raised in concerned. "Bailey?" She took the boy's hand, and gently pulled it from his face. "Is something the matter?"

    Bailey shrugged, his gaze shifting to the tiles lining the floor. A moment of silence passed. Slowly he looked up at her again, his hazel eyes gazing thoughtfully at her. Leia's breath caught in her throat. She turned away abruptly. //Gods, that is so Han.// Leia barely made out her son's next words. "What?" She asked him, her mind distracted.

    "Is daddy coming home now?" He repeated anxiously.

    Leia turned back to her son, her expression softening. She smiled in relief. So that's what had the boy all upset, he missed Simon. "No sweetie," she said lightly as she stood up from her chair. "Not until the end of the week." Leia ruffled her son's hair affectionately and started to head off towards her bedroom.

    "No," Bailey said impatiently. "I don't mean *Simon*."

    His tone stopped the princess in her tracks. Leia turned back to her son. Bailey gave her an eager look. "I mean my *real* daddy. Is he coming home?"

    Leia suddenly felt light. She leaned back against the kitchen counter to steady herself. "What?"

    Bailey was oblivious to his mother's turmoil and pressed on. "You know, my *real* daddy. The one in Uncle Chewie's stories." Bailey's little hand once again reached for his lip. His voice became almost a whisper, "I think he's coming back now."

    Leia swallowed. "Sweetie," she began softly as she made her way back to her son. She kneeled down in front of him, her voice almost cracking, "your real daddy is with the angels. You know that."

    Bailey shook his head adamantly. "No," he insisted. "He's coming back. I saw it."

    Leia bit her lip as she tried to tune out the sudden ringing in her ears. She felt dizzy. "Bailey," she began gently, "what do you mean you 'saw it'?"

    The boy shrugged his shoulders in frustration. "I don't know-I just *saw* it. Like a pitcher in my head."

    Leia felt her stomach tighten. Her eyes combed over the boy's face as if searching for something. Maybe she was. It had never occurred to Leia that Bailey would have talent in the force. Well, it had *occurred* to her, but she had furiously dismissed the notion from the moment she had first laid eyes on him. There was no way, she had reasoned upon looking down at the sweet innocence that was her son, that he could have even a touch of Darth Vader in him. It just wasn't *possible*.

    And that's what the force represented to Leia. The evil of her biological father. She refused to believe that her beloved little boy could be cursed with the same affliction that
