Let’s take a moment to appreciate how much fucking LOVE there is in Star Wars and how fast it happens but how REAL it feels, how PRECIOUS it is
So I’m a very, very shippy person, and I ship a lot of stuff in Star Wars hard but I want to take a moment to appreciate how friendships form in these amazing movies.
Let’s start with a New Hope.
Here is Han Solo.
All he wants is to be a grumpy smuggler with one trustworthy, hairy friend and no debts and no worries.
Is that so much to ask?
Hahaha, yes, sir. Yes it is.
Because here is this goddamn FARM kid who is naive and idealistic and believes SO HARD in doing the right thing and is so disappointed in how jaded Han is
and also this sassy, rude, intelligent BRAT of a princess who has lost everything but still believe so much in their pointless rebellion and she’s also so very disappointed in how jaded he is
and he wants so much to just walk away, but he CAN’T because even though he’s known them for A DAY they are in his head and they’re in his heart, and fuck it, he comes back and helps them save the day (and so many days after) and they are SO HAPPY
BEAUTIFUL. FREAKIN BEAUTIFUL.
Then there’s FORCE AWAKENS.
Where we have this guy who about to get executed, but at the last minute he’s saved by a guy who desperately wants to escape, because he doesn’t want to be a weapon. He’s dressed like the enemy, but he says it’s a rescue.
And even though Poe has suffered so much torture at the hands of these people he’s just like OKAY I TRUST YOU LET’S FUCKING DO THIS
and then they’re escaping he realizes those bastards never even gave his savior a NAME and he’s like:
THAT IS SOME BULLSHIT, YOU DO HAVE A NAME, IT IS FINN. I AM NAMING YOU FINN AND YOU ARE MY BUDDY. THAT COOL?
And Finn is like YES, YES IT IS.
But then it’s NOT cool because things go wrong and he tries really hard to save Poe but there IS no Poe and all there is a jacket, but he takes it, because even though it was so brief, they had this CONNECTION , and he wants to remember this brave man who gave him a name and got him OUT of hell
But then, OMG.
THERE IS POE.
THERE IS FINN.
HE IS ALIVE!!! HE’S HERE!
AND IT’S TIME TO SHAMELESSLY RUN ACROSS A CROWDED BASE AND LEAP INTO EACH OTHERS ARMS BECAUSE WTF WE ARE BOTH ALIVE AND WE’VE FOUND EACH OTHER AGAIN, aND YOU COMPLETED MY MISSION!
YOU ARE A GOOD MAN AND YOU ARE MY BUDDY.
HAVE MY JACKET
AND MY HEART (oh fuck I did a shipping thing sorry I’ll stop now)
Let’s go back to that grumpy smuggler.
Sadly because of reasons he has become a grumpy smuggler once again.
BUT HE MEETS A GIRL.
A GIRL WHO IS SMART AND BRAVE AND ADORABLE AND CAN FLY HIS SHIP?
BUT ALSO SHE IS A SAD, LOST, LONELY PUPPY AND HE’S KINDA SAD AND LOST TOO.
SO EVEN THOUGH HE’S KNOWN HER FOR ONE DAY HE BETTER GIVE HER A
DAD OFFER JOB OFFER.
And last but not least (THERE IS NO LEAST, EVERYTHING IS AMAZING) we’ve got Finn and Rey
They start off a little rocky because of misunderstandings
And also, explosions
but 20 minutes later…
they are BFFs and SO FUCKING DELIGHTED with each other
And they kinda get pulled in different directions for a second because they’ve both got SOME SHIT going on, but the SECOND he realizes she’s in danger, it’s NOPE. I WILL GO TO THE LAST PLACE IN THE GALAXY I WANT TO BE FOR YOU. I WILL RISK EVERYTHING.
AND I WILL GET YOU BACK BECAUSE A LEGIT DAY AGO WE DIDN’T HAVE FAMILIES BUT NOW WE DO.
I just love them all so much. I’m so happy they found each other. MY HEART.
