"No, seriously, Princess. This would be a lot easier for both of us if you'd get the chip off your shoulder."

And what sort of help do you imagine I need from you? Leia bit back the tart reply. Her mother would say she was being snotty. Because she was be snotty, and prickly, and defensive -- all her character flaws, wrapped up in one neat package.

"What sort of help do you have in mind?" she managed. Not civil, exactly, but she could do worse. Had done worse. Many times.

Han shrugged. "I don't know. Whatever you need."
Han and Leia in the early days after Yavin. Oh my heart.

The Boy from the Stars by [archiveofourown.org profile] Lefaym
Beru has spent enough time with her sister's children to know that some babies are difficult. But the way Luke cries isn't the same as the others she's known. He doesn't scream loud enough to pierce her eardrums, he doesn't rage or whine when he is hungry or his diaper needs changing. The med-droid at Anchorhead says he is in perfect health. But still, Luke cries on and on with tiny, heartbreaking sobs.

"What could he possibly want?" Owen asks her one morning, his voice heavy with frustration.

"I don't know," Beru says, because she thinks that Owen will scoff if she suggests that Luke is grieving. He would be right, too, Beru thinks -- how could an infant barely a month old be aware of all that he has lost?
Lovely look at Beru during Luke's infancy.

"Do you ever meditate?"

"Not really," she says. She's always preferred to be active, that sort of concentrated reflection isn't for her.

"You are very like your father," Kenobi says. People frequently compare her to Bail, and Leia feels a warm glow every time it happens, but this doesn't quite feel like a compliment and Leia frowns. "Meditation can help you," he says.
Leia accompanies the droids to the surface of Tatooine and meets Ben Kenobi, and his young friend, Luke. Aw heart.

How the Other Half Lives by [archiveofourown.org profile] aradian_nights
Thoughtful, enjoyable AU series where Luke is raised as Prince of Alderaan and Leia is living on Tatooine with the Larses. Six complete stories so far (and one in progress covering the events of ANH). Does some really interesting things with Leia, especially.

Leia and Cassian and the way common language ties people together. Lovely.

Poe and BB-8 have a conversation. Oh heart.

The New Guy by [archiveofourown.org profile] ambiguously
There's a long moment, and later Ezra knows it's a moment where he could have given in to sorrows and angers he's been carrying since he was seven years old. But he can sense the Force in Luke, can sense it like a beacon. He sees the honest, worried confusion on his open face and in his clear eyes. He's not a Sith or another servant of the Dark Side. He's a lonely kid who lost his family and got a lucky shot at the Death Star. Ezra doesn't think much of the Rebellion's new hero, but then he gets to know him a little. Oh boys.

The Resistance honors its dead. Lovely.

Strong Loyalty Subprogram by [archiveofourown.org profile] wordslinging
That time BB-8 saved Poe from space pirates. ADORABLE.
