Rey shifted the squirming cat in her arms, lifting it up to rest over her shoulder, where it seemed more content to perch up high. She opened the door to the Bey’s Beans coffee shop and looked around at the handful of early bird customers who, like her, had risen before the sun to start their day.
Rey rose early every morning to jog around the city in the comforting solitude of the pre-dawn. It was the first thing she did, before breakfast, a shower, anything. She threw her covers aside, shrugged into her hoodie and sweatpants, stepped into a pair of old sneakers, and was out.
“Be right with you!” came a voice from the back, just beyond a gaudy yellow and orange polka dot curtain. Rey noted the British accent, and the slightly harried tone.
She let the door close behind her. The cat mewled in her ear, straining toward the floor. “I, uh, think I found your cat?” she called.
listen either finn is gonna get w/ rey (interracial couple in a prominent film franchise, still relatively uncommon in modern media) or finn is gonna get w/ rose (interracial couple consisting of two people of color in a prominent film franchise, even LESS common in modern media) or finn is gonna get w/ poe (interracial QUEER couple consisting of two men of color in a prominent film franchise, unquestionably groundbreaking) so like, no matter who finn winds up with romantically, it’s all good, it’s all important from a representation standpoint, u can all have ur ship wars but i am excited to see who our lord and savior finn chooses and will support him no matter what
