Be you. Be unapologetically you. Be so you that you can’t handle you, and then be you some more. Be you until everyone knows you, until you know you, until you have you memorized like God has all the constellations in the sky.
“It’s silly not to explore the idea of a guy who grew up steeped in the Rebellion and the older Republic and all of those myths and legends. If you think about it, he (Poe) grew up the way we did, hearing all of these stories.” -Poe Dameron writer Charles Soule
how often do you think poe asked for stories about cassian andor growing up? the older he got the less people there were who knew the stories firsthand, but he still asked. cassian was up there with shara bey and leia organa.
poe “as long as there’s light, we’ve got a chance” dameron definitely hero worshipped cassian “rebellions are built on hope” andor
you know that edgar allen poe story where some prince is having a masqeurade party and the literal embodiment of a horrible plague shows up and starts killing everyone eerily and instantaneously. that, but with congress
I see your Poe Dameron admiring the hell out of Cassian Andor headcanons and love them, but raise you this: Poe telling Finn stories during his recovery about Bodhi Rook, a “nobody” Imperial cargo pilot who risked his life and left his probably relatively safe life to deliver a message that would change the tide of the rebellion and war against the Empire, a man who could have kept living his life none the wiser, but opened his eyes to the horror of the Empire and, even though he didn’t think he was brave enough, had a heart so big that he walked out on his own to brave the unknown and shape history. And Finn, who has struggled with his own fear and sense of self, realizes that he isn’t alone - that there was someone like him in the old Rebellion - and there is hope.
but like….. If they’re still rehashing the whole series then in episode 5 han and leia are left together while luke gets on with his training and then um they fall in love and like………. poe and finn are left together while rey gets on with her training in episode 8 JUST SAYING
