poe's story

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 kept staring at me with your gorgeous eyes but little did you know you were killing me inside.
—  mixed signals.

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.

Poe junkie

The cold of London is forgotten in the glow of a lighter,
It is all you do to kill the grey,
Numb at the tips and you flick it right up,
And a dead man they say,
as you get High another day,
Just a drag to a smile, its chocolate.

Just a dab you use it,
Get high to get calm,
Paranoia but you do it,
Sweet lies its all like chocolate

You and your friends call it chocolate,
The lyrics of the song called it fate,
Roll up and strum the strings, chocolate to forget,
Dead inside and sad soaked futile hate,
You bite her lips, taste like wine and chocolate,
You call it chocolate, just a lie; you dead?

Your lungs they take it in like a friend,
Your heart breaks again, remember why you like it?
She broke your heart so you broke your head,
Bent with drags of chocolate, loved her but she didn’t know,
Bite your lips, light it up and inhale your fate

Inspired by the 1975 chocolate and my own addiction and self destruction

Why Annabel and Eddie were late to Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Dinner Party, with priceless reactions from Lenore

yknow what I love the idea of

the stories of rogue one being passed on to the current generation

Finn hearing the story of Bodhi Rook, a pilot who was encouraged to be brave enough to defect and became a hero who helped destroy the Death Star

Poe hearing the story of Cassian Andor, a captain who grew up a part of the cause and chose his conscience over orders to save lives and protect the future

Rey hearing the story of Jyn Erso, a woman who was indifferent to the rebellion but grew and changed and helped and became a hero just as much as Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, if a martyr

BB-8 hearing about K2-SO, a droid who had an attitude but was loyal and fought to the end because it was important to support his friends and allies even if that meant pulling off the unthinkable

All of them hearing about Chirrut Îmwe and Baze Malbus, who fought tooth and nail to protect their history and preserve it, and then fought tooth and nail again to give the future a chance as well

All of them being told about the words that inspired countless others to join the Rebellion and fight against injustice and cruelty in the light of seemingly hopeless odds, when reminded of the impossibility of destroying a planet killer:

“Rebellions are built on hope”

Some people are born with tornados in their lives, but constellations in their eyes. Other people are born with stars at their feet, but their souls are lost at sea…

y’know i really hope cassian andor was friends with kes dameron and shara bey (and maybe helped set them up?)

they were devastated but proud at the loss of their friend

i hope poe’s middle name is cassian

i hope he became the resistance pilot he is learning from stories of cassian’s moral mistakes

i hope he takes risks thinking that cassian andor, bodhi rook, jyn erso–they would have done that

hearing stories of the battle of scarif from general organa

i just like thinking about poe dameron, child of the rebellion, in a post-rogue one world

Say it with me

Just because Poe and Cassian are both played by Latinx actors does not mean they’re the same character.
