    [hl=maroon]Welcome to the Bespin Café, fellow Han/Leia fans - We've Moved!![/hl]

    - Check below for the March 2006 Han/Leia Fanfic Challenge

    [hl=lightblue][color=darkblue][b]To Be Announced[/b]:[/color][/hl]

    [b]As a corollary to this index, there is also a message board for Han/Leia lovers[/b]

    [link=][b]Princess and the Scoundrel[/b][/link]

    [face_hugs] Welcome to all Han/Leia lovers there!


    [color=white][hl=purple][b]About this Index[/b][/hl][/color]

    This index has over 400 entries of stories and vignettes centering on Han and Leia and combines fics from the older [link=][b]Corphelion Stars Bespin Café[/b][/link] with new fics added each month

    Currently this index is run by [b]Lady Padme[/b] and [b]Jade_Max[/b], although we are using this opportunity to request help from other Han/Leia lovers to run the index and to be reviewers. Please PM [link=][b]Lady Padme[/b][/link],
    [link=][b]Jade_Max[/b][/link] or [link=][b]HanLeiaFanficGuru[/b][/link] if you are interested!

    Each month we will try to update the index with new stories and will try to present a fanfic writing challenge. As well, if people are interested in reviewing stories, we will try to present story reviews. New stories for the month and monthly fanfic challenges will appear on this first post.

    The actual[color=red] index [/color] will start on the next post in the thread; the index will be automatically updated with new fics each month. [b]Updates will always appear on this first post in the thread[/b]

    [b][color=white][hl=navy]To the readers: [/b][/hl][/color]
    Feel free to drop in to announce new fics, to announce updates to your old fics, and to discuss favorite Han/Leia stories. Although we try to keep the list updated as well as possible, we may miss a few stories or vignettes in the updates. If you wish to submit fic to be added into the archives please send a PM to [link=][b]HanLeiaFanficGuru[/b][/link] with the following:

    1) Title and URL of your fic
    2) Time period of your fic
    3) Summary of your fic
    4) Status of your fic (WIP, vignette, completed, etc.)

    Please keep in mind this index is for stories centering on Han and Leia together; stories featuring only Han or only Leia without the other (or in which the other is not at least a prominent background character) , as well as stories where Han and Leia are only minor characters have been excluded.

    * Special thank you to [b]Tara[/b] who compiled many of the fics in the original archives [face_dancing] *

    Thank you to everyone for your support since this index has come on line.

    And...please check out the first post in the thread; as mentioned, there is a new Han/Leia message board [link=]here[/link]. I don't know about you, but I've missed Tara's wonderful message board since it went offline and hopefully, fellow H/Lers will find this board useful. So, please check it out and don't be bashful about posting!

    This thread is awesome!! I can't believe I missed it on my first pass through the topics, but then there's so much stuff here that your eyes can start to cross after a while. This is going to keep me busy for a while. :)

    P.S. Sorry--I didn't mean to be redundant!
