Elusive Lover was a Star Wars slash fanfiction, fanart, and poetry archive that focused on the Han/Luke pairing. The website archived fanfiction that appeared in the Elusive Lover fanzines as well as online fanfiction. It also housed artwork and poetry.

In October 2018, it was announced that Elusive Lover would be moving to the Archive of Our Own as an Open Doors Project. The import began in November 2018 and was considered complete in December 2022. The collection can be found here.[1]

What is it all about?

What is it all about?

Love, romance and adventure in a galaxy far away. And within this galaxy, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker make an eternally fascinating pair of lovers. There's a great deal of passion in them both, and sparks between these two men could easily strike up an intense fire. For a start, they've always been ready to give their life for each other -- so why not give it to each other? It makes a lot of sense to me, but if you'd like to hear more about the reasons click here. Still not convinced? Take a look at the lost scenes -- some lovely moments between Han and Luke dropped out of the finished movies.

Finally, I'm obliged to warn everyone who considers physical passion between partners of the same sex offensive: if you feel that way, don't read any further. Yes, among other things, the listed stories include vividly sexual situations between two men, also known as slash, and are suited for an adult audience only. They're based on the thought that love and desire, being such elusive things, might just elude all notions of gender.

A lot of people have cheerfully contributed to the growing universe of Han/Luke stories, and without the support of some very special friends, things just wouldn't be the same. Enough said. Thank you all. You know who you are. And before I forget: a bow to a pair of gorgeous actors who've inspired fireworks of fantasy.

Warning: Do not post any of the stories, poetry and art, either in total or in part, on mailing lists or at any other site on the internet without the individual author's or artist's express permission.

So, please respect the writers' and artists' wishes - if you don't, be assured that I'm not just going to let it pass.
