aka Kathleen Kennedy still doesn’t know where the problem was....
do i believe that luke possesses the skills to survive in a hostile environment? lets put it this way. no, i do not
— han, 10 minutes after meeting luke in a new hope
oh wow what a big fucking bullshit, i loved alden’s han solo and donald’s lando, the whole cast was the best part of it all, problem is you changed directors midway through production and the movie turned into a mess, then it was released at the most terrible time when the sw fandom was at it’s most toxic post the last jedi but yeah of course new actors are the problem
As a follow up to talking Fics, I love your Jyn and Han as buddies headcanon. I can totally see them kicking back and trading stories. Any other headcanons for them?
Oh my god, I'm so sorry it took me so long to answer that - rl has been crazy and then my computer decided to stop working and tumblr has a tendecy of not notifying my asks. So sorry, again! Now, onto my headcanons - because yeah, I do have some!
They are really into bets, and like to practice together at the shooting range.
They both have a bit of a hard time adjusting to life with the Rebellion - feelings on inedequacy, frustrations, simple damn annoyance sometimes, all things they don't know (or simply don't want to) bring up with Cassian and Leia - so they are each other's safe space for when they get a bit overwhelmed. Jyn will sometimes hide in the Falcon, and Han will bring out the booze, or Han will look for Jyn at the training grounds so they can punch stuff together and Jyn will give him tips on hand to hand combat (Han is a way better shooter than her, so they balance each other out in that).
Now, because of that, they are fiercily protective of each other. They will (and have) start a fist fight if they hear anyone talking shit about them.
Were pivotal in the whole Luke and Bodhi getting together thing.
They like to share stories about their lives before the Rebellion, and were quite surprised to find out their pasts have sort of crossed many times before.
They both like to think they are the more emotionally mature friend (when it's actually neither of them, they are both disasters), so Jyn teases him about his feelings for Leia ("you know that annoying the Princess until she yells at you doesn't count as flirting, right?") and Han teases her right back ("boy you and Andor sure do stand too close to one another for two people who aren't in a relationship")
They both have a “shoot/punch first, ask questions later” mentality, which is effective, but it also brings a lot of headaches for the higher ranking officers, so there aren’t many of them who are willing to lead a team with bothe Han and Jyn. Kes Dameron is the only one who is always up to it.
They are constantly busting each other out of medbay
Jyn was the second person Han told about Leia’s pregnancy. The first one was Chewie, obviously. Han was totally freaking out about being a father, and Jyn was the one to calm him down - in her blunt, slightly inapropriate way
Thank you so so so much for sending me this, I love talking about my favorite criminal duo! Sorry if I got a little bit carried away lmao. Also I’d love to hear your thoughts and headcanons!
Well, when you put it that way. 🤯
Part of the reason that Han, Luke and Leia work so well as the main trio is that they're all mistakenly under the impression that they're the sane one in a 'two idiots and the voice of reason' trio trope. Like "Somebody has to save our skins!" and someone has to stop Han and Leia from murdering eachother mid lovers spat, and someone has to keep the twins out of trouble involving force nonsense. And they're all equally as much trouble as eachother, but they all think they're the only sane person. And it's wonderful.
