rei's going to get taken home

Can we talk about Finn for a minute? I keep reading that Finn gets described as “flat” or “boring” by some in the Star Wars fandom. Obviously everyone’s entitled to their opinion. But I’ll tell you, from my perspective? He’s one of the most unique, charismatic Star Wars characters out there. 

1. Finn humanized stormtroopers. Made us experience panic and terror at the terrible choices they have to make. Stormtroopers, who were practically a joke in the other movies - white plastic statutes that existed just to get shot and clatter into a pile.

2. Finn’s flight with Poe Dameron is an explosion of emotion. That scene blew me away. Both of them had so much fun with it, and you can see Finn feel the real impact of having a name, rather than being a number. 

3. Finn is profoundly empathetic and protective. Hell, I swear he cares about BB8 when he has to describe the plane crash, and Poe’s “death”, to the droid. 

4. Finn shows tremendous range in this movie. Traumatized (stormtrooper battle), jocular (”you got a boyfriend?”), joyous (”that’s one hell of a pilot”), wistful (”Take care of yourself. Please.”), angry (ligthsaber battle), I could go on. I like Luke Skywalker as much as the next fan, but I think Finn shows more range in this one film than Luke did in all three. 

5. Finn’s story arc is powerful, subversive, and inspiring. Going from a number to a name. Finding a family after being taken from his home as a child. Turning his back on the First Order and then realizing he needs to go further, and embrace the cause of the Resistance.

6. Finn’s relationship with Rey. I’m gonna get choked up about this, so I’ll just say John Boyega is an amazing actor, and I loved every scene he had with Daisy Ridley. 

Anyway that’s my fangirling contribution. To me, Finn’s amazing.

Bad Moon Rising: Part 2 [Modern!Kylo x Reader]

BMR Masterlist // AO3

A/N: So grateful for the awesome response to BMR part one! Thank yall so much. I hope this is up to par with the first part. I’ve enjoyed writing this, and hope to continue it for a bit. 

Warnings: Language.

Word count: 2,500+

Kylo sat on the steps his porch, about twenty feet away from you and your car. You made him leave you alone and wouldn’t let him sit with you, still apprehensive about the man. You really wanted him to just go inside, but he had insisted he at least stay on the porch to keep an eye on you.  You weren’t sure how you felt about that.

You sat in silence, the feeling of the cold concrete seeping through your jeans, your back against the door of your car. There were too many problems to solve and it made you just want to lie down and sleep it off. You were eerily calm. Cars hummed by, passing on the interstate just above the street. You mind was scattered. Every time you began to formulate a plan, you’d lose your train of thought.

After ten minutes of brooding silence, Kylo couldn’t take it anymore. He spoke up. “Let me drive you home.”

You looked up at him, squinting through the darkness to try to see his face. You scoffed instantly. “You can’t be serious.” You still couldn’t read his expression.

He returned the scoff, almost sarcastically. “Dead serious.”

Summary: After delivering the map to the Resistance, you are sent on another mission to bring back Luke Skywalker. During your trip, you are informed the First Order has attacked the Resistance base and you are quick to return back. Once at the base, you are surrounded and knocked out, only to wake up somewhere you wish you hadn’t be. And the reasoning? Execution.

A/N: So, as requested by some of you, I decided to add another part to transpose seeing as I actually liked the first part and had come up with something for part two. Like mentioned before, this is a sort of emperor/cowboy bebop au that is still set in the star wars universe (confusing, I know). Anyways, enjoy and feedback is welcomed!

Warning: Mentions of death/blood

Standing off to a side, eyeing your bruised knuckles and bloody hand, you let out a breath. The image of the blood dripping down Kylo’s face haunted you, the fresh wound the dressed his skin made your skin crawl. You never intended to cut half of his face open with the knife, but you had.

finn and rey! 💞

proposes - neither of them would think about it much until one day they are just laying in bed late at night and rey would suggest it out of nowhere and they both would be super chill about it. but then they would wake up in the morning and be like ARE WE ACTUALLY GETTING MARRIED?? HEY EVERYBODY GUESS WHAT WE’RE GETTING MARRIED!! LOOK AT MY BEAUTIFUL FIANCE!!! and everybody would want to hate it but they are just too cute together 
shops for groceries -  rey likes shopping for groceries bc she likes cooking and buying all the extravagant spices and herbs she needs for their meals! also they often bake together so finn will come along and pick out sweet ingredients that he wants and they will make up their own recipes using what they bought together 
kills the spiders - rey kills the spiders until finn catches her and then makes sure that they all get taken outside to safety
comes home drunk at 3am - finn will come home drunk and shake rey awake dramatically bc he wants to bake or go hiking or cuddle and they have to do it right now at that very moment yes rey this totally cannot wait
remembers to feed the fish -  they feed their fish together before they have their own meals, looking at them and pointing with big smiles bc they both love their fish so much 
initiates duets - they both love singing and can be found walking around base holding hands and singing duets together. they start at the same time bc this is a ‘thing’ they do so they will argue about which song to pick and start at the same time
falls asleep first - finn is a night owl and rey is an early bird so rey is out soon after sunset (finn gets agitated and bored without her and tries his best to get on her sleep schedule but it’s harder for him)
plans spontaneous trips - finn bc he likes discovering the galaxy! rey still has trouble with change and gets home sick easily so they keep their trips short but she loves going bc it makes finn so happy!
wakes the other up at 3am demanding pancakes - finn does, sometimes he just feels like pancakes at 3am but he’s too tired to make them himself. rey just tells him shut up and let her sleep
sends the other unsolicited nudes - i feel like either neither of them would do this or both of them would do it very enthusiastically and shamelessly 
brags about knowing karate even though they never made it past yellow belt - rey bc she can get really competitive and sometimes may exaggerate if things get heated (although she could obviously kick anyone’s butt)
comes to a complete halt outside bakeries/candy shops - they both do and they have so much fun looking at all the different candies! the first few times this happens they buy like. everything in the store, so they have create a rule where they can only get 5 things each so they don’t go broke
blows sarcastic kisses after doing ridiculous shit - rey does this once and finn thinks it is hilarious so they make it a ‘thing’ and now they both blow sarcastic kisses at each other all the time
killed the guy (also, which hid the body) - they both kill kylo and throw him into a volcano on mustafar and everyone cheers :)
wears the least clothing around the house - finn sleeps in his underwear and sometime he’ll just stay like that all day until rey forces him to change
has icky sentimental moments for no apparent reason - rey does! finn will just be making their bed or reading and she will just tear up bc she is so happy to have made her own family (finn and their fish and all their friends) that she loves and trusts and who would come back for her no matter what :’)

sometimes i think about the fact that poe went on that mission to jakku knowing that if he failed, no one would be coming after him. he knew that if he were captured there would be no rescue mission, and he would either have to find a way out on his own or die there, whatever came first. i think about poe waiting in his cell on the finalizer wishing foolishly and hopelessly that someone would come to his rescue, even though he knew it would never happen. i think about poe silently accepting his death and his failure and his loss of all his friends and his droid and leias trust and when finn comes to get him he thinks he’s about to be taken to his death but instead finn came to rescue him. finn came for poe, deserted on the finalizer, failed his mission with no hope for rescue, but saved by finn, who came for him when no one else would

and then i think about rey growing up on jakku, spending days wandering the desert for parts, nights picking at her portions and gazing at the stars outside her at-at waiting, hoping, that whoever left her there would come back. rey dreaming of lands with water and green and systems far, far away from jakku, dreaming of places she longs to see and has no hope of ever going to. i think about rey scratching each day into the wall of her makeshift home and each mark is another day where no one came for her. then finn comes. finn comes and takes her away from the place she’s been dying to escape all her life, gives her a way to reach the stars she’s spent so long gazing at. when she gets taken by the first order she thinks about how brief her freedom was and decides she isn’t going to waste any more time waiting for a savior that won’t come, and she escapes on her own, only to find that she didn’t need to because finn came back for her. after all those years waiting for a family to come back that never would, she realizes she doesn’t need that family because she has finn, who came back for her when no one else would

sometimes i think about finn and how he was never allowed to go back for anyone. stormtroopers are cannon fodder and fallen comrades were to be ignored. but he went back for slip. he went back for poe. he went back for rey. i think about finn growing up in a cold and heartless environment where caring about others was a fallacy and you had to turn your back on everyone or get left behind. i think about finn and the choices he’s made. about how he was this close to turning his back on it all and fleeing to the outer rim where he wouldn’t have to care about anyone, but he couldn’t do that. he had to go back. for slip. for poe. for rey.

i think about finn almost being sent to reconditioning and knowing that his heart makes him dangerous, that the other stormtroopers neglect him because he cares too much and the higher ups don’t like it. i think about how no one would probably ever go back for finn.

i think about finn waking up in the med bay after his fight with kylo ren, poe at his bedside and bb8 beeping excitedly at his feet. finn, who thought he died, realizing that instead of leaving him for dead in the snow, rey came back for him. finn looking at poe sitting next to him and realizing poe has been by his side for a long time, poe came back for him.

just give me all of finn and poe and rey taking care of each other and always always always going back for each other when no one else will

anonymous asked:

Imagine a very drunk Rey doing karaoke and ben having to go up and pull her off stage because it's gotten a tad bit out of hand and she's very theatrical (I got this from another user)

“Rey, don’t you think you’ve had enough at this point?” Finn said wearily as she downed another shot of vodka.

 “Finn, I’m fiiiiiine,” Rey said as she slammed the shot glass down on the bar. By some miracle, it didn’t break.

 “I knew we should’ve let Ben come,” Poe said as he took a sip of his coke. “She never would’ve gotten this drunk with Sir Nags-a-lot here.”

 “Hey!” Rey exclaimed, “Don’t call Ben a mean name. He’s so nice and handsome and sweet and…” Tears suddenly formed in her eyes, “I wish he would notice,” she hiccupped, “me.”

 “Good job, Poe,” Finn said as he patted her back comfortingly.

 “How was I supposed to know she’d get all heartachey just from me mentioning his name?”

 “Because she’s drunk,” Finn said irritably, “and she gets ‘heartachey’ about Ben even when she’s sober.”


 “Attention everyone,” Finn, Poe, and Rey as well as the other customers in the bar turned towards the man on a small stage. “As you may or may not know, today is this month’s Karaoke night!” Several people in the bar started cheering, but Finn was suddenly filled with dread. He had a feeling this couldn’t possibly end well. “Who would like to go first?”

 “I would –” Finn clapped a hand over Rey’s mouth before she could finish.

 “Poe, volunteer.”

 “What? Why?”

 “Because you’re a good singer and if you don’t go then Rey will.”

 Poe grimaced at the idea, but still argued, “Even if I go now, there’s nothing stopping her from going after me.”

 “I’ll call Ben,” Finn said. Ben was the only person Rey actually listened to when she was drunk, a fact both Finn and Poe were acutely aware of.  “Just go!”

 Poe sighed before standing up and saying, “I’d like to go first!” The customers applauded as he made his way to the stage.

 “Ow!” Finn said, pulling his hand away from Rey. “Did you just bite me?”

 “Yes. Because you’re being mean.”

 Finn sighed and pulled out his phone. He quickly dialed Ben’s number and prayed to all that was holy that Ben was still awake.


 “Ben! Hi it’s Finn. Are you busy right now?”

 “No… why?”

 “Well, we’re having a bit of a problem…”


Ben had left his apartment the second he had heard what was going on. To say he was concerned would be an understatement. Although he knew that Rey was an adult and perfectly capable of making her own decisions, the idea of her shit faced drunk made him very uneasy. Furthermore, he knew that a sober Rey would never want to sing karaoke in front of a bunch of strangers. “I’m just not a great singer…” she would say, fiddling with hemline of her shirt whenever they had a Karaoke night at Hux’s place (the man had a strange love for karaoke. He owned at least three different karaoke machines). He knew that she would regret drunk Karaoke and he wanted to help her if he could.

 Pulling up in front of the bar, he parked questionably legally and then rushed inside. He immediately saw Poe and Finn sitting at the bar by themselves. “Where’s Rey?”


 “Does that answer your question?” Finn said with a grimace. He downed the rest of whatever he was drinking.

 Ben turned to the stage. Rey was belting somewhat off-key into the mic as she did what could only be described as a dreadfully awkward version of pelvic thrusts that didn’t quite fit the mood of the song. “Why didn’t you stop her?”

 “We tried,” Poe said, “I sang a song and then Finn sang a song and then I tried to sing another song, but she ran up and grabbed the mic from me.”

 “This is the second song she’s sang.”

 “Sang is a bit generous, don’t you think?”

 “Stop it,” Ben said irritably, “As soon as this song is over, I’m going to convince her to go home.”

 “That’s probably for the best,” Finn said.

 “Do you two need a ride home?” Ben asked.

 “No, I haven’t been drinking,” Poe said. “We’ll probably stay out for a little longer.”

 Ben nodded and then shifted his attention back to the stage as the song reached its end. The other customers of the bar all applauded, some more sarcastically then others. Ben quickly made his way to the stage just as Rey said, “Now I would like to sing – ”

 “Rey!” Ben said as he stepped on to the stage, which was really more of a small platform.

 She looked very surprised to him. “Ben?” Then she broke out into a wide smile, but it seemed a bit strained, as though the bubbly, happy drunkness was starting to fade, “Beeeeen! Do you want to sing a duet with me?”

 Ben shook his head not unkindly. “Rey, I think it’s time to go home.”

 Rey wrinkled her nose with displeasure, “But…”

 “Rey,” Ben said, “It’s getting late and you’re very drunk. Come on.”

 Rey stuck out her tongue at him, but, to Ben’s relief, stepped off the stage. They both said goodbye to Finn and Poe before leaving the bar. Rey, moments after stepping outside, threw up. Ben held her hair back as she vomited all over the pavement. When she finished, she looked up at him with a miserable expression. Ben felt his heart break a little. “You okay?”

 “No,” she said as she wiped her mouth on her sleeve.

 “Come on, let’s get you home,” he led her to his car, determined to get her home as quickly as possible.


“Here you go,” Ben said as he handed her a glass of water. After discovering that Rey had lost the keys to her apartment, Ben had taken her to his place instead. “Are you comfortable?”

 From her place tucked within the covers of his bed, she nodded. “Thank you, Ben.”

 “You’re very welcome.” He flicked off the lights, closed the door, and said, “If you need anything, I’ll be in the living room.” He shut the door quietly behind him.

 As he pulled a blanket and pillow from his linen closet, Ben couldn’t help but think about Rey. It wasn’t like her to get that drunk, not to the point where she had to throw up. It made him worried. I’ll ask her about it in the morning, he decided.

 He settled into the couch and tried to sleep but found his thoughts continuously going back to Rey sleeping in his bed. He really wished he could curl up beside her and hold her in his arms, but not only was she drunk, she probably wouldn’t want to do that with him even if she was sober. He was fairly certain that Rey saw him as nothing more than a friend, a fact that made his heart wrench whenever he thought about it.


The first thing Rey noticed when she woke up was the excruciatingly awful pounding in her head. It felt like someone was repeatedly slamming a hammer against her skull from the inside. Then she realized that she wasn’t in her own bed. Her blood ran cold. Oh god, did I go home with some stranger? What did I –

 “Rey? Are you awake?”

 She sighed in relief when she heard Ben’s voice from the other side of the door. Of course, she was in Ben’s room. She should’ve figured that out earlier. “Unfortunately,” she said as she rubbed her temples with the tips of her fingers in an attempt to ease the pain.

 The door opened, revealing a chuckling Ben holding a glass of water and a plate of pancakes. “Hungry?”

 “Starving,” Rey said with a small smile. “Thanks.”

 He handed her the plate and placed the glass of water on the bedside table. He sat down on the edge of the bed beside her. “So tell me, why exactly did you get so drunk last night?”

 Rey opened and closed her mouth. She wasn’t really sure what to say. “It’s not important.” She stuffed a large piece of pancake into her mouth. “Besides, I wasn’t that drunk.”

 He raised an eyebrow at her. “Oh really?” When she shrugged, he added, “how much of last night do you remember?” Rey thought about it as she chewed. She remembered going into the bar and taking a lot of shots… and she a hazy memory of the song “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston, but she didn’t remember the context. When she told all of this to Ben, he said, “It was Karaoke night at that bar you went to last night…”

 “Uh huh. And?”

 “And you decided to sing… ‘I Will Always Love You’…”

 Rey blinked a couple times. “You’re joking, right?”

 “I’m afraid not.”

 “I have no recollection of this whatsoever.”

 “That’s probably for the best.”

 Rey sighed. God, she must’ve made an idiot of herself. Poe and Finn would never let her hear the end of it, and –

 “Hey, don’t make that face. So you did something stupid, it’s not the end of the world.” He brushed a strand of hair out of her face. “Tell me what’s wrong.”

 Rey stared down at her plate. “Well… I guess I was just a little bummed out about a guy.”

 “A guy?” She could hear the frown in his voice.

 “Yeah… A guy…” Rey shifted a bit in her seat. “I don’t know.”

 “Look Rey,” He said as he tilted her head up to him, forcing their eyes to meet, “if any guy isn’t interested in you, then they clearly don’t know what they’re missing out on. You’re beautiful, smart, more stubborn than a mule – ”

 “That doesn’t sound like a good thing.”

 “It’s part of your charm.” Rey laughed. “Point is, any guy would be lucky to consider you his girlfriend, so if this guy of yours can’t see that, then he isn’t worth your time.”



 “It’s you.”

 Rey wasn’t sure what had prompted her to finally admit it. Perhaps his little speech had given him confidence or maybe it was the exhaustion. She supposed the reason didn’t matter now that she had said it though.

 Ben looked absolutely stunned. “It’s… me?”

 Feeling a bit bashful, Rey nodded instead of speaking.

 She could feel his smile against her lips as he suddenly brought her into a kiss. It wasn’t a very long or deep kiss, but it was still very sweet. Rey was fairly certain that Ben was just too much of a gentleman to give a crazy passionate kiss to someone who was recovering from a hangover.

 When he pulled away, he smiled at her and said, “You have no idea how long I’ve wanted to do that for.”

Punctual (Closed RP with nagishota-penguin and detective-ryugazaki)

Rei had waited all day to get back home, so that he could lay down and forget about today. He had just taken an advanced statistics exam, which was ridiculously difficult, and he was unable to get a passing grade. It was dreadful. Before walking home, Rei would normally meet up with Nagisa after swimming. But, there was no swim practice today, since there were pool renovations going on. Haruka was not pleased.

He waited outside of the school campus on Nagisa, who was taking too long to get out. “Ah… At least the breeze is soothing.” Rei closed his eyes and grinned as the wind blew his messy hair gently.
