what she means:
why didnt faberry ever happen? quinn was obviously so in love with rachel. in season one, theres a shot of quinn drawing an ugly drawing of rachel and yet she adds hearts around it? rachel always looked out for quinn, especially during the pregnancy. she gave away a pair of her panties just so the school paper wouldnt write about quinn being pregnant. in season two, in the scene at prom where quinn slaps rachel across the face, she feels so sorry afterwards. and even though shes just besn slapped, rachel wipes away quinns tears and holds her hand. like what the hell? when rachel wants to get her nose job, quinn is the only one who takes her seriously. shes the one who goes with rachel to the plastic surgeon and is supportive of rachel's decision. plus, it was quinn's nose that rahcel wanted. and in season three, quinn says the words "you were singing to finn, and only finn, right?" like she wants rachel to be singing to someone else, ie, her. how gay can you be quinn fabray? and quinn is so adamant about not wanting rachel to marry finn. she tells rachel that shes a star and doesnt need to hang onto the boys in high school, that she needs to let go and be her own person. quinn is the only person who truly recognizes rachels talents and capabilities and appreciates her drive and ambition. plus, quinn gives rachel metro passes so that the two of them can keep in touch. after giving her the passes, the two hug, and the pain in quinn's eyes is so clear. her gay little heart was in love with rachel throughout the entire series and yet it was never explored.
Reader and John are going on a blind date together. But bump into each other before they get to the restaurant
“Do I have to go!” John yelled from the kitchen. Arthur and Polly walked in. Arthur laughed and Polly smirked.
“Yes. You fucking do! Or do you want to be scared of women your whole life?” Polly told him with a slap on the back.
“Shut up. I’m not scared of women!” John yelled at Polly. She laughed and lit her cigarette.
“Is that why you haven’t had a proper fuck with a girl in what is it? Four years. You can’t mourn forever.” Arthur told him.
“Shut up!” John retaliated.
“She’s a nice girl. I made sure there wasn’t any dirt on her, she lives around here but her father owns a factory so she cleans up nice. But she’s a brummie through and through, wouldn’t leave her home even when her father got loaded and moved to a big house. She’s nice but wants to meet someone. She won’t know it’s a Peaky Boy so don’t scare her.” Arthur told him.
“Sounds like a stuck up bitch if you ask me.” John muttered and Polly hit him.
DISCLAIMER: This isn’t me on piano. I used someone else’s beautiful instrumental (with their permission of course), which you can find here :)
“We move along, when there’s nothing left for us.”
So this is a cover that I’ve wanted to do for such a long time. I just think the song is so beautiful, and the lyrics are really in line with some of the stuff that I’ve been struggling with lately. It means a lot to me in so many ways, and on top of it all I also can’t help but also think of Finn whenever I hear it. He has this light inside of him that never goes out, despite all the bad that has happened to him, and to me, that’s what this song is about. It’s a message about holding onto hope, even when you feel like you’ve got nothing left. It’s a message that I need to hear, and am trying my best to follow.
Thank you so much for listening, and I hope you enjoy it.
people don’t have names or first words tattooed on their bodies
people don’t start seeing colours for the first time when they meet “the one(s)“
instead, they feel each others pain (call it a survival instinct, knowing when your soulmate needs you)
it’s not overwhelming, only a phantom sensation of whatever the other is going through, but it makes war very complicated
what happens if a soldier gets distracted in the heat of battle by the agony of a ship going up in flames?
what if a pilot crashes, unprepared for the sensation of a bullet tearing through a lung?
even if it’s only a shadow of the feeling, it still hurts
but poe still becomes the greatest pilot of the resistance, because stormtrooper training involves a lot of pain and poe’s learned to ignore it by now
and fn-2187 is trained not to feel pain and poe honestly doesn’t get hurt all that much
poe hates the pain he feels, he doesn’t understand why this is happening to his soulmate(s), but he recognises that there’s not much he can do about it for now
fn-2187 doesn’t even know what a soulmate is, doesn’t realise that some of his pain belongs to someone else
(stormtroopers don’t have soulmates. they are taken from small villages which they might never otherwise leave, and the first order finds their soulmate(s) - likely from the same village, almost always from the same planet - and kills them. no exceptions. only one survives. it makes war too complicated otherwise. it never occurs to anyone that one of these children was always destined to leave their home, first order or no. they assume that fn-2187 never had a soulmate at all - it happens. they never see an incident like stormpilot coming.)
so, finn would have left the first order anyway, after the village and his friend, and he would have taken poe with him anyway, because he needed a pilot, but he gets a hell of a lot more motivated when he feels the agony of torture (he doesn’t know how or why, but he finally realises that he doesn’t just feel his own pain, but this random prisoner’s as well)
after the crash neither of them knows what the fuck is happening
poe never actually realised that he met his soulmate
finn still doesn’t really understand how or why he felt poe’s pain
and they both have other things on their minds, comeon
so they meet again and are delighted, slow mo dramatic reunion etc
neither of them realises shit
maybe bb-8 does and rolls its metaphorical eyes, idk
and then there’s the whole thing with starkiller base
(leia feels a burning pain in her chest and has to sit down. she never dreamed that han could actually die, much less by ben’s hand. luke feels it too, in his hideaway, and he knows what it means but he didn’t see this coming. which one died? he doesn’t know.)
so they’ve won and poe is happy and then finn is facing kylo, trying to protect rey and poe only feels a fraction of the pain of a lightsaber slicing through finn’s back but he can’t hold back a sound of pain and his squadron wants to know if he’s okay and oh shit, shit, shit, his soulmate(s) been through a lot and so has he but this feeling is unbearable and shit, there’s no way anyone could survive whatever the fuck caused that, which means that (one of) his soulmate(s) is dead and he’ll never even know who it was, but the pain continues and he deals with the pain and realises that it’s stillthere which means that his soulmate’s not dead yet
and they get back to the resistance and people are worried about poe, because why did he sound like he was in pain goddammit but when the falcon lands finn’s dying and when poe sees him he knows
maybe rey is also their soulmate
poor her because these two manage to get into a whole world of hurt between them
A/N: So I’ve been listening to Backstreet Boys a lot over the weekend (DON’T JUDGE THEY WERE SO GOOD) and I’ve always been obsessed with Everybody (Backstreet’s Back) and I Want It That Way, so I decided I’d write one based off of one of those songs… Disclaimer it’s the first one. ;)
Warnings: None, actually!
“Yeah, I’m actually about to pull into the driveway.” You spoke into the phone. You were having a conversation with one of your friends who you grew up with. You had a break from tour for a little while, so you and her insisted on making plans, hence the discussion. “Tell Finn I said hi! I can’t wait to meet this guy who has you gushing every second of the day.” Your friend giggled. You rolled your eyes, wishing you could slap her, but then again you couldn’t fight the smile on your face as you knew it was true. “I’ll make sure to tell him you said hello. But I’m home, so I’ll call you later?” She agreed, the two of you ending the call.
As you got out of the car, you saw Finn was already here which caused you to smile widely. You approached the front door and already you could hear the sound of music blaring from inside the house. Your eyebrows arched in confusion, unsure of what was going on. You opened the door, the music louder. “Finn?” You called out over the loud tunes raging off the walls. The volume suddenly lowered and out came Finn with the remote to the system. “Hello, love.” He greeted you with a smile that screamed devious. “Hi?” You answered him in a questioning tone. “What’s up with the music?” You nodded your head towards the system. Finn’s eyes followed yours and landed on the source of the music, his smile brightening, eyes lighting up like fireworks popping on the Fourth of July. “I was messing around.” He answered sheepishly, but he was still acting rather different. At least to you.
“I want to hear you sing,” Finn said, eyeing Poe’s guitar next to the bed they were seated on.
Poe laughed, that golden and rich sound that Finn couldn’t get enough of.
“How come?” Poe asked.
“Everyone says you’re a great singer,” Finn replies. “I wanna hear it for myself.”
Poe smiled and Finn could just about float.
“Alright. I’ve gotta special one, just for you, buddy.”
Poe picked up his guitar, tuned it, then started playing.
It was beautiful. Truly, words couldn’t compare. It was mesmerizing and could wrap you up like a warm hug. Finn had never heard music like this before, only ever imperial shit they’d play at the Order. This blew all of that away by light years.
Finn felt like a piece of him he never knew existed had just ignited into a fiery splendor.
“That was incredible! What was that?” Finn asked when Poe was finished.
Poe smiled at him again, and Finn didn’t know how much more his heart could take.
“A love song from my home planet. My father would always sing it to my mother.”
Finn felt his face go hot.
“Oh, wow. I, it was beautiful,” he stammered.
Poe put the guitar down and scooted closer to Finn.
“It’s about confessing ones feelings to their true love, over the span of time,” Poe told him, his face getting dangerously close.
“Yeah?” Finn said, finding it hard to pay attention to anything but Poe’s lips.
“Yeah,” Poe smiled, and this time Finn kissed him.
Summary: No one can break down the walls and barriers of wits and stubbornness that the reader has put up. Not one guy has ever come close to even sharing a glance with the reader that wasn’t intended to kill. But Poe, with his cunning charm, was set to change that, thanks to a bet initiated by Finn.
A/N: You all know the movie. If you don’t, I highly suggest that you watch it because it’s so so so good. I’ve switched up the poem a bit to make more for my story and the sw universe. And as always, if you’re not in a star wars mood, this isn’t for you. Enjoy!!
