  2. Summary

    They were children. Warriors, soldiers, scientists, spies, tourists, yes, but children none the less. And what child doesn't want to live in a world that doesn't want to live in dreams, with no responsibility, no judgement, no pain, no sadness. These children were no different, no matter how they lived. Everyone is someone's child. Every child wishes for that - including theses -- especially these.

    How would it feel to have your heart's every desire and then have to rip yourself away? Do you think you would break? What if you were already broken?

    The team - this team - these children - they know now. They shouldn't have every had to find out.

    Summary

    In a hindsight, all of it - the stolen childhood, the crash on Jakku, Han Solo's death, even the lightsaber to the back - was easier than living in this world of invisible social clues and inside jokes, the whirlwind of this ragtag family that defied any logic, the caring, the compassion, the love.

    And all the while people tell him: Finn, you are so brave! Finn, you are so strong! Finn, you are so kind! Finn, thank you for saving my life! And FN-2187 looks to the stars and desperately tries to find this "Finn" everyone seems to know in himself.

    Summary

    The night was silent; no shrieking birds heralding land nearby, no howling wind pushing him in one direction or the other. If there had been, maybe he wouldn’t have heard the song.

    The Bodhi as a siren au nobody asked for.

    Summary

    “Do you think that we're different people now?” Cassian asks, and his voice is suddenly so, so serious. Weighed down by all the distance travelled, all the time that's passed.

    “Yeah,” Bodhi says. “I think we are. I don't think that you can really live through what we have and not be, you know?” He's not sure if that's what Cassian wants to hear, but he's lied too much and not said enough for too long. He gestures with his hand again. “Come on,” he says. Now get up, he urges inside his own head, as if that's the hardest part.

    Cassian looks at him, and for once that calm, pinpoint stare is focused on him alone. It should be disconcerting. It's not.

    He takes Bodhi's hand.

    (or: life after the war isn't easy, but somehow Bodhi and Cassian find each other again.)

    Summary

    He finds the droid on accident.

    Well, that’s a lie. What Finn actually finds is a mess of wires and rusted parts that look like they could have once been parts of a droid a long time ago.

    Maybe. Possibly.

    Finn didn’t really care, to be honest. He just felt a pang in his heart when he saw the poor, broken, mess of a thing forgotten in the corner of the Resistance base and thought: It doesn’t deserve that.

    Summary

    Chirrut Îmwe has it all figured out. A successful yoga studio, tai chi on the weekends, and raising his son Bodhi. The last thing he needs is for Baze Malbus to trample all over his plans with his distractingly deep voice and tendency to disrupt everything with his sheer existence.

    Bodhi has nothing figured out. Not his future, not himself, and certainly not why his heart does flips every time he sees the captain of the track and field team.

    It's a good thing they have each other.

    (No character death, despite the title)
