Why This Must Be Read: When this ficlet begins, you're thrown into a universe as dark and dangerous as the Mos Eisley Cantina. In fact, it begins in a bar, where an unsavory low-life named Gej is contemplating his chances with various women that night. That is, until he sees Solo's girl, all dolled up and looking for a good time--a time which Gej feels uniquely qualified to provide, especially if it means getting revenge on Solo. Things aren't quite what they appear, though, and Gej may have landed himself in more trouble than he can manage when Solo himself shows up.

This fic does a great job of showing a different side to Leia and Han, playing with the "what if?" concept of the AU and yet keeping both of them firmly in-character. The setting is gritty and the sensory description fabulous, and the ending is funny and fun.
