We've decided to add a weekly dose of fan fiction to PopWrapped, and we're going to begin with a Star Wars story called The Falcon, which follows The Force Awakens' plot
. It is primarily about Han Solo and an OC (original character). Each Friday, we will reveal another chapter to the story, so get ready!
If you have some great fanfiction you'd like to share, contact us! Maybe your work can be featured on the site! We hope you enjoy the first story, and feel free to leave feedback in the comments.
“Han, did you just hook the Falcon?” Rose asked, as she watched the legendary ship come aboard.
She watched as his lips curled into a smug half smile as he answered, “Yep. She’s back. Chewie, let’s go see what kind of shape she’s in,” he said, as he walked down into the bay.
Rose followed, “Can we just take it and go? I’ll actually have weapons systems on that ship, and that’s why you hired me originally,” she commented, as they reached the ship where Han opened the door.
Han looked back and winked at her, “I use you for other purposes now.”
Rose slapped his arm as they boarded the Falcon. Chewie headed to the cockpit to see what kind of shape she was in while Han and Rose went to inspect for life. They stumbled upon a girl, a boy, and a droid.
“Where did you get my ship?” Han asked, looking over the mismatched group.
The girl spoke up, “It was in a junkyard on Jakku. Who are you?” she asked, the curiosity evident in her eyes.
Han didn’t answer, as he began walking toward the cockpit. Rose took over, “I’m Rose and he’s Han Solo. Who are you?”
“I’m Rey, this is Finn, and this is BB-8. We’re trying to get Finn to the Resistance because he’s a fighter and got stuck on Jakku. If he’s Han Solo, does that make this the Millennium Falcon?”
Han answered ‘yes,’ as he passed them to get off the ship and back onto his current ship. Rose followed him, Rey right behind her, spouting off questions. “Is this the same ship that made the Kessel Run in 14 parsecs?” Han shook his head and rolled his eyes as he corrected her, “12.”
“If Han is the pilot, what does that make you?” Rey asked after Han had led them back onto the Falcon to head out in it. He was worried someone might show up.
Rose didn’t think he was close enough to hear her, so she replied, “I’m a weapons specialist, but we haven’t had those in a while, so I double as his girlfriend,” she admitted.
Rey smiled, her eyes filled with wonder. “That is so romantic! The two of you traveling the galaxies in love,” she said aloud, as she romanticized the smuggler lifestyle.
Rose smiled, “It’s not that romantic. I am certainly in love with him, but he has someone else in his heart. And, if he agrees to take you to the Resistance, then it will lead us right to her.”
Han overheard Rose while listening to Finn tell him about the droid and how it wants to get to Luke Skywalker.
“The BB-8 unit has a map, but it will only show it to someone it trusts, but it will lead us to Luke. Can you take us to the Resistance base?” he requested.
Han wasn’t so sure but he knew that they needed to move. “Chewie, fire her up!” he shouted, “I’ve got a bad feeling about having these kids on board. Rose, come here so I can show you the weapons. Finn, do you know how to shoot?”
Finn nodded, though he had really only done it once. “Go to the other station and be ready.”
Rose smiled at Rey before she got up and followed Han’s voice. “What’s up? I know how to work the weapons,” she said before he interrupted her by placing his lips against hers.
Rose was surprised by his sudden act of affection, but she trailed her hands up his chest and around his neck. He pulled back to look into her eyes, “I heard what you said, and you’re wrong. Get to your station,” he said abruptly, as he raced to the cockpit to join Chewie and get them out of there.
A/N: This is just the beginning, and this story will follow along closely with The Force Awakens. I’ve always wanted to do a Han/OC character but could never part him from Leia. Disney did it for me. Look for an update soon! Be sure to catch up with other FanFicFridays!
