The Speedo Challenge - Submission #1

Okay, before the riots start, I'll post the submission I received from AmaraZ.  Thanks so much for whipping up this little treat for us.  And just for posterity's sake, I'll include the photo:

Speedo Challenge Submission #1

from:  AmaraZ

“Just hold still, flyboy.”


“Come on, Han. I can’t get it if you don’t stay still.”

“I’d really rather not anyhow.”

Leia pouted. “Not even for me?”

Sitting beside a pool in nothing but a skimpy swimsuit was the last place Han wanted to do such a thing, but how could he turn her down. “Oh, alright.”

He quickly straightened up, but his expression didn’t change that much and was not as relaxed as Leia would have liked. It was a more thoughtful and perturbed look than expected, but she figured it was good enough and quickly snapped the holo. Han visibly relaxed after she did.

Not willing to aggravate him further and satisfied with her progress, Leia quickly stuffed the holocam back in her bag and gave him a big smile. “Thank you, Han. I appreciate it.”

Han just shook his head, clearly still not happy with the attention. “I’m not exactly clothed here, Leia. I better not find this up in your office or something.”

“Well just go ruin all my plans. I had the perfect spot picked out on my desk,” she replied with a mischievous twinkle in her eye that had him a bit worried.

“I don’t know why you need a holo of me anyhow,” he grumbled.

Leia slid closer, running her hands through his hair and over his shoulders. She kissed his cheek. “I wanted it so that I have something to remember you by when you’re gone.”

Han raised an eyebrow at her and sighed as she slid into his lap. “Sweetheart, I can give you something to remember me by.”

She tightened her arms around him and gave him a squeeze. “I’m sure you can. But you know I’m more of a visual person.”

Han stared down at her, taking her words as almost a challenge. “Well, let me give you something tactile to go with it,” he replied. His hands quickly reached for the ties on her top and she laughed as his lips found the perfect spot on her collarbone.


  1. Bravo Amara, what a totally adorable little moment. I love Han's reluctance, but who can blame Leia for wanting to remember him looking like THAT. And do we get a follow up of what he gives her to remember him by? ;) love how you used the expression on his face in the photo as part of the story.

    Well done, this is very cute.

  2. I actually wrote one for this challenge, but I emailed it to Zyra, who's probably ready to kill me for swamping her.

  3. Thanks, ladies! How could I resist writing about Han in a speedo? ;)

  4. Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated!

  5. Amara, I'd like to say that you are positively awesome in the sexy time department. Whether it's before, during or after, whatever the setting, it's so great to read :)

    1. Thank you. That was very nice to say. I love them being able to be all loving with each other. Hmmmm, I'm wondering if that's my comfort zone. ;)

  6. I agree with all. Awesome job!

  7. Thanks, Push and TooOldForThis.

  8. Always enjoy your stories, well done :)

  9. Aw, what a sweet, believable, little moment you captured there. I'm impressed with how quickly you were able to churn that out. Nice!

  10. hot! what happens next, hmmmm?!?!?

  11. Thanks, Seams, Stoned Rose, and Okhotshot77. Much appreciated.

    Hmmmm. That is the second request concerning what happens next. Is that a hint? ;)

  12. What's the matter with you guys with this challenge! :D You seem to keep stopping writing before you're finished with the story! You cut off in the middle of the story!!!!! :D :D :D :D

    Just kidding, this was lovely! :)

  13. I love Han sort of being shy here, that he doesn't want to have his picture taken. For all of his brazen confidence, I can see him acting like this. Really sweet :)
