    “I guess I just don’t see why marrying me and having babies would be so bad,” she says softly, curling her fingers around her keys. She looks so sad when she says it. Her chin dips and she looks like she might cry and before he knows it he’s falling at her clumsily, pushing her body against the wall and covering her mouth with his. She stiffens for a moment, her hands coming up to his chest as her keys fall to the floor with a jangling sound, but she doesn’t push. Instead her hands curl and take hold of the lapels of his jacket and her mouth opens under his.

    She had no idea what he was talking about, but felt no need to tell him so. Let him sit and stew, let him think her dangerous. She felt dangerous, and wanted to be. She wanted to be a predator, she wanted to be the wolf and the dragon and the monster.

    “I’ve seen it before but—I didn’t care.” His voice was garbled, not wanting to reveal to her whatever vulnerability he perceived was her fault. It was wise of him. Wendy would have driven a dagger into his heart if she could have. “Now I—now I—”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is treason. She knows that it is. One last time, she looks up at Osiris’s face, calm and gold above them. Lord of Silence, yes, but Lord of Love as well. His brother Seti had killed him for desire and Isis had loved him enough to find him scattered all over the world and piece him back together. There would be no legend, no ritual, no temple standing in his honor if love had not put the god back together. Love is power, tenacity, divine.

    This is treason, but it is not blasphemy.

    Summary

    Poe Dameron is a Commander of the Resistance starfleet and formerly of the New Republic Navy: he did not break when Hux’s men cut and probed and bruised and beat, did not break when Kylo Ren ripped open his mind, did not break when Iolo’s X-wing was lost in the carnage of a planet built to kill billions, he does not break as long as there is still a desperate need for justice and freedom in the galaxy.

    He does not break when this tiny woman he barely knows says only a few words.
    ----
    Or, the one where Force-sensitive Cadet Poe Dameron flies his first secret mission at sixteen. A lifetime later, it comes back.

    Poe Dameron is thirty-two years old and should know better.

    Apparently he doesn’t.
