    Just noticed that the fan fiction section on here seems rather bare which seems a shame since there's quite a bit out there. I always love reading fics that have been recommended to me and since I thought others might feel the same, here's a thread.

    To start the ball rolling, here are a few Han Solo-centric recommendations:
    • Accidental Hero by Carolyn Golledge: After being hurt and trapped by an explosion in a Rebel base, Han is determined to track down those responsible. First appeared in the fanzine Bright Center of The Universe #5 1995, reprinted in Never Say Die 1999. Posted on somerescue.com (no longer exists) and archived on WebCite.
    • Somerescue.com (archived): An 'archived archive' of some quite high quality stories which originally appeared in fanzines. Some of the links are no longer active (such as the one for Accidental Hero- above- which I managed to track down elsewhere).
    Crossovers:
    • Raiders of the Lost Carbonite (Part 1 / Part 2): Indy finds a very odd "statue" in the Well of the Souls -- a carbon frozen Han Solo. He accidentally "defrosts" it and Han is very puzzled by his new surroundings.... Appeared in the fanzine Southern Lights #2 1998 and was then posted to somerescue.com, now closed but archived in part.
    Will be sure to add anything else I find and would love to hear about your favourite stories!

    I figured I'd throw a shout-out to some of my all time favourite fanfics here.

    Julie Horwitz's AU universe where Padmé manages to reach Anakin on Mustafar, without Obi-Wan tagging along, and manage to redeem him - starting with A New Destiny - is really good. We get to see what Anakin would be like if he'd actually been around to be a father to his children, and how the guilt of what he'd done as Darth Vader can still haunt him.

    Despite lagging a bit in the middle and wrapping things up a bit too nicely for my liking the absolutely massive beast that is Bad Boys, JEDI Style is worth a look. The premise is essentially that the six original films we know are simply a reality show in the Star Wars universe. It's a really cool concept and it works really well. Plus it pokes fun at a lot of the plot holes we've come to accept from the Star Wars films. How come Young Obi-Wan looks so different from Old Ben, anyways? Well, according to this fic, there's a very good answer to that.

    But the absolute cream of the crop is called The Father, and it tells the tale of a grieving Darth Vader who realises that with the cloning technology available to him, he can use Padmé's DNA to have children to love and care for. But it's much more than that. It's an intricately plotted story about a man who's not really sure how to be a father, but tries his best (even though he doesn't always do the best job). There's tons of familiar faces, both from the films and the old EU, and the author clearly put tons of work into making sure his story had a logical progression and everything tightly leads up to a very satisfying conclusion that's reminiscent of the films while still both making sense in this universe and being just plain awesome on its own merits as well.

    What if Luke was able to bring Darth Vader back?
    Let's say after he rescued him from the doomed Death Star 2, when he asks Luke to take off the mask, Luke Says "you'll die" and Vader Says, "nothing can stop that now" There was a theory at one point that suggested that the emperor was basically keeping Vader alive through the use of the force. Well what if Luke was able to keep him alive also at least long enough to get Vader retrofitted with new robotic equipment that would be able to keep him alive. What would his new look be? Would he become a diplomat retaining power over the systems that he once conquered? Would he have been able to re-establish the Jedi along with Luke?
