Hello, ship ask for gingerpilot: how did you start shipping them? explain why do you them? what’s your favorite headcanon of them? 8D
I don’t think there was a time when I was officially like “ah yes, I ship Hux & Poe now” it was just a sort of funny idea because Oscar & Domhnall are such good friends who would be very dynamic together as Hux & Poe onscreen and it gradually slipped into “oh my god…Hux & Poe would be so perfect & hilarious together…” I ship them because I really do think Armitage Hux likes “bad boys” who are uncontrollable & challenge him, I think he finds the chaos both frightening, intriguing & sexy and Poe is very much a wild card with a cocky personality who would inspire that reaction in Hux. Not to mention I think Poe would be very amused with Hux & try his best to fluster him, and he’d fall in love despite himself (I think Poe falls in love very easy). They just are a really fun pair to think about in a crackship sort of way. My favorite headcanon….Poe is very big on flirting and Hux is very unused to normal human interaction and thinks Poe is mocking him so he’s very flustered and defensive, but eventually he warms up to Poe and his dorky charms (because Hux is also a huge dork).
I was rewatching “Escape from Beta Traz” and like this fucking scene
Pidge is just like “Lance, you’re gonna need to get a scan of his face” like it’s the easiest thing in the world and if it were any other idk SANE person they would’ve at least been like “wtf pidge have you seen this guy like he’s terrifying and also how the fuck am I gonna scan HIS FACE from this distance hidden away without him fucking noticing me”
But Lance, CLASS CLOWN LANCE, just says “Copy that” and gets down to business
HE IS A SHARPSHOOTER IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE I MEAN HE REALLY ONLY HAS LIKE A 3 SECOND WINDOW TO AIM AND SCAN FROM THIS DISTANCE
HE SHOOTS THIS BLINDING ASS LIGHT WITH ZERO HESITATION AND LIKE
IN 0.00001456933 SECONDS THIS BITCH TURNS AROUND
But Lance used his fast leggys and hid himself like wtf I’m so proud of him. He is so smart and good and has amazing reflexes and is a quick thinker and doesn’t hesitate when people need him.
And he is like so relieved that he actually did the thing but doesn’t gloat or bask in his moment he just sends Pidge the face like NO PROBLEM “Face on the way Pidge” THAT WASNT RISKY AT ALL. WHATEVER. ALL IN A DAYS WORK.
MY SON GETS SHIT DONE AND THIS MISSION WOULD HAVE COMPLETELY FAILED WITHOUT HIM FOR SO MANY REASONS
