Star Wars - Luke & Leia

Reading through old entries I came across:

And I'd like to point out what I've said several times. Let's see. You've got Rebels, with American accents, and you're suprised that brother and sister are making out? Okay, so maybe it would have been more obvious what was coming if they had southern accents, still...

And if that wasn't enough to scar you, then the first book Splinter of the Mind's Eye by Alan Dean Foster in 1978 definately shows an inclination between the (as yet unknown) siblings. Bits from the book:

Moistly parted in sleep, her lips seemed to beckon to him.


Luke felt the warnth of the body next to him, lowered his gaze. Framed in the faint light from above, the Princess looked more radiant, more beautiful than ever.


At the same time, the Princess grew aware of how tightly she was clinging to him. Their proximity engendered a wash of confused emotion. It would be proper to disengage, to move away a little. Proper, but not nearly so satisfying.She was utterly drained, and the comfort she derived from leaning against him was worth any feeling of impropriety.
They stood like that for a timeless stretch. Luke slid his arm around her and she didn't resist. She didn't look yearningly up at him, either, but this was enough for him, for noew at least.
