Author: WarmNyota_SweetAyesha Characters: C3PO, an MSE droid, H/L, Rieekan. Timeframe: Saga OT Disclaimer: Borrowing everything shamelessly. AN: In response to the fic-gift exchange. This is for @Ewok Poet whose request is hidden beneath the spoiler at the end. Hope you enjoy & get some LOLz! ~~~****~~ It was the first-year anniversary of the Battle of Yavin. A mixed jumble and tumble for Leia, and that was an understatement of Rancor proportions! The Rebels were throwing a celebratory feast and she was obligated to make a speech. She sighed and perused the file open before her. She would stay for a decent interval of socializing and then make her excuses and leave. Han was off on some nefarious jaunt or other. Best not to speculate on the exact nature. And best not to admit even to herself that her load would be a bit lighter if he were around to infuse a bit of snark. C3PO ambled in at that moment with data-files of the latest HoloNet news of the galaxy at large. Leia thanked him and took a look at one of the stranger offerings: "The Emperor's chief concubine was seen at a recent gala leaving with the Bith ambassador. Later that evening, a holocam strategically placed outside her balcony saw her emerging decked out in 'granny panties." The things these holojournalists write! Leia scoffed inwardly. "Mistress Leia, the MC11 droid has totally botched the Alliance logos for the pilot uniforms!" Threepio exclaimed. He showed her a sample of 10: instead of the traditional Alliance logo, there was emblazoned a pink and purple Pogo. "As soon as it came to our attention this batch was defective, we stopped duplicating immediately." "Very prudent of you. Look at this mess!" Leia replied. "We should have performed a memory wipe when the specs called for it. We'll do that immediately and run the request through again and hopefully the next batch comes out correctly. How can we use these?" She wondered aloud. "Turn these into cleaning rags, if we can?" Threepio suggested. "That's a good idea." Leia answered. "Let's start on that right away." *** When the party was in full swing, Leia got up to make a brief speech. "We know this fight is by no means over. We will lose friends and colleagues doubtless but as long as we do not lose heart, the Empire can not ultimately triumph." Carlist Rieekan was enjoying the festivities immensely by imbibing a concoction of green and red liquor. He burst into song at one point: "I feel pretty and the ladies can all attest. Of all the great ladies I've known, the Hapans are the best." **** When Leia saw Han enter the common area, she felt more than a surge of pleasure. She made her way over to him in what she hoped was purely casual. "I guess you'll tell me you were in the sector and decided to stop by?" She said. He gave a lopsided smile and offhand shrug. "Yeah, something like that." Then he turned serious. "I knew this day would be ... hard on you and well, you know ..." She smiled, genuinely touched by his thoughtfulness and more than a little surprised. "Well, Captain Solo, I never knew you had it in you." "Don't let it get 'round, OK?" He said sounding sheepish. She laughed. "No one would believe me." She said, feeling better already. They chatted with Luke and the other Rogues, and Leia left after a few moments, but longer than she'd expected. Her dreams that night were carefree and untroubled by the past. ++++++ Spoiler I would like a story in Saga-OT with: 1. Make it funny. 2.
