BB-8 The Matchmaker
Anon asked: hi, i love your work, youre such a great writer! id actually like to make a request where bb-8 finds out poe likes you and you like him, leading the droid to enlist every single droid on base to play matchmaker, including c-3po and r2-d2? thanks for considering it!
(A/N: Yasss, I love my spherical little droid baby!)
Plot Summary: BB-8, one of the few people, or well, droids that Poe confides in. The spherical droid rolls around giddily, until Poe makes BB-8 promise to not tell anyone. Especially you. However, when the droid overhears you, General Organa’s right-hand, about your attraction to the droid’s master. BB-8 decides to enlist C-3PO, R2-D2, as well as every cleaning, medical, and war droid to bring the two of you together.
“Well, that was nice. Haven’t had a good chat in a while.” You smiled as Poe walked alongside you to your room, BB-8 rolling in between the both of you.
“Yeah, now that the Starkiller Base is destroyed, we have at least some level of peace.” Poe sighed, stuffing his hands into his pockets as he stopped in front of your room.
“So, I’ll see you tomorrow?” You turned around, facing him with your tablet at your hip.
“Of course! When have I ever let you down?”
“How about when I told you not to get captured on Jakku?”
“Okay, besides that. And I’m still alive, right?” Poe gestured wildly to himself, BB-8 rolling around his feet.
You laughed, walking into your room. “Goodnight, Mr. Dameron.” And with a smile and a wave, the door was closed, leaving Poe to walk back to his own room.
BB-8 whirred at him, asking what was wrong.
“I’ll tell you later, buddy.”
As soon as Poe was inside his own room, BB-8 immediately began to beep excitedly, asking Poe why he was acting so sullen.
“Well, how do you feel about Y/N?”
The droid answered, rather keen on you. It considered you as a part of it’s surrogate family.
“So, I may or may not have… Romantic feelings for her.”
BB-8 squealed happily, circling around Poe once again before rolling towards the door.
“Wait, no!” Poe dived and caught the droid in his arms, keeping it from exiting the room.
“BB-8, you can’t tell her! I don’t even know if she even has the same feelings!”
BB-8 stopped and made a questioning beep.
“Just, wait, okay? I just want to be safe and make sure she’s interested or not.”
His droid gave him a reassuring head-tap with its own, before rolling off to its charging station and powering down.
Poe, on the other hand, lied awake in bed, thinking about you, sighing.
He turned over in his bed, trying to get a good night’s sleep.
