Happy Saturday everyone! Enjoy this week’s Fictional Crush of the Week! This one is a VERY personal favorite of mine :)
Book or Series They Appear In:
The Original Star Wars Trilogy
A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi
Harrison Ford <3 <3
Who They Are:
Han Solo is one of the main three characters of the Original Star Wars trilogy. While Luke Skywalker is the hero, and Princess Leia is the not-so-damsel-in-distress, Han Solo is the humor and the sort of bad boy of the good guys. He is a former smuggler, caught up in the rebellion against the Evil Galactic empire almost against his will. He’s a reluctant hero, quick with sarcastic remarks and always full of plans that don’t always work so well. He has the coolest and most loyal of sidekicks, Chewbacca. He always has a remark that causes a lovable eye-roll from his companions. He acts super uncaring but he can have a sweet side too.
Why I Am Crushing On Them:
I’m pretty sure that this is the first fictional crush that I’ve ever had and he remains one of my favorites to this day. I never was on board with Luke Skywalker, although Mark Hamill was pretty cute in the first movie. But he was sort of whiny at times, and he was very serious. I always go for the sarcastic, bad boy. Plus I had always imagined myself as Princess Leia and Princess Leia ends up with Han Solo. So that just sort of works out that way.
But let’s just look at it. Han Solo is the scruffy, bad boy, who always has the sarcastic remarks. He’s roguishly good looking, and Harrison Ford, god, I can’t even handle it. Its a back and forth sometimes on which character he’s more good looking as: Han Solo or Indiana Jones. Han Solo will always be my man, though. He may not always seem 100% committed, but he’s a good pilot and a good fighter, and he ends up being essential to the rebellion.
Princess Leia: I love you
Han Solo: I know
“Laugh it up, fuzzball.”
“Who you calling scruffy looking?”
Luke: But they’re gonna kill her!
Han Solo: Better her than me!
“Get in there, you big furry oaf! I don’t care what you smell!”
“One thing’s for sure, we’re all gonna be a lot thinner.”
“Never tell me the odds.”
“Great. Don’t get cocky, kid.”
