It was privately circulated in the early 1980s. The editor of Perfect Fusion planned to print in in 1984, but that zine did not get off the ground. It was later published in Elusive Lover #3 and posted by the author online in the early 2000s. It remains one of the few publicly acknowledged Han/Luke stories written by fans during the "Lucasfilm Purity Period" and its prohibition against explicit fan fiction.
From a Flyer for "Perfect Fusion"

His partner had learned to rely on this ability to "read" other beings' emotions by Scent in the tricky world of smuggling. *He is much like other humans -- like you, Hansolo,* Chewbacca answered. *Now, he is smelling confused, a little angry, a little frightened... Hmmm, there is something else there, too.v The Wookiee's nose twitched again, consideringly. *Hah! He wants to mate with you.*"
