okay though .. but Poe Dameron speaking Spanish (or whatever language dialect most resembles it in the future) because his parents did. Though he doesn’t run into people who speak his language often, he likes to keep it sharp and often will speak to himself in his mother tongue and he’s proud of because it makes him feel like he’s honoring his parents and his culture. Though it isn’t uncommon in intense situations to hear him cursing his enemies and his team mates gently jibe at him to translate for everyone.
It also isn’t uncommon for him to revert to his mother tongue when he’s very sleepy or injured so his squad has started to slowly but surely pick up the language.
With Finn, he’s never been very good with languages- he can’t understand droids or wookies, but when he hears Poe one day sweetly talking to bb8 in this new language he’s fascinated- he wants- no needs to know what it is, he has never heard anything so rhythmic and flowing before.
So as he and Poe grow closer he encourages Poe to speak his first language even though it’s perplexing to him, but sometimes Poe will smile and call him “carino” or “hermoso” or “guapo” and Finn starts to put two and two together. He laughs at Poe’s under breath off hand comments, and hears him curse when’s he worried or finn’s favorite- is when he finds Poe reading these ancient earth authors- curled up in the x wing reading Federico Garcia Lorca, and reciting his poetry to himself and Finn and Rey like his mother used to do to him,- much to Rey’s confusion and Finn’s amusement..Luis Cardosa y Aragon, Artuo Arias, etc are all people Finn comes to know about
And over time Poe finds himself speaking less English and more of his mother tongue around Finn-
Until one day the two are sitting together, their last night together before a dangerous mission and the two are just enjoying each others company when all of a sudden Finn leans over and kisses Poe and whispers “te amo” and Poe is kinda stunned for a minute… He finds his tongue and replies “yo se”
The teacher shes talking about in this video is now the assistant principal at MY high school so I need to share this. (Also this isn’t me in the video)
“I am 28 years old and have been waiting years to get up enough courage to report a teacher for sexually abusing me for years. When I finally got up enough courage to report her, I found out that the statute of limitations was up and she will never have to pay for the things that she did to me. I decided to call her and make a video to let the public know what kind of person is around their children. Her name is Andrea Cardosa and works with your children at Alhambra High School in Alhambra, Ca. Please help spread the word that this person is out there "helping” YOUR children!“
