    Summary

    The xynivin, also known as soulmate birds, are mysterious creatures that can fly anywhere in the galaxy, but more than that, they have the ability to identify soulmates. When you’re ready, you can call one to you and after you tell it your hopes and dreams, it will fly off and sing your song to your soulmate.

    Young Poe Dameron desperately tried to call the xynivin to him—until the day when his little heart broke and he stopped believing there was magic in the galaxy.

    FN-2187 never believed the stories other Stormtroopers told about the dreaded xynivin. It was all just a bunch of nonsense.

    And then one day, as they were both walking through the deserts of Jakku, desperate and alone, Poe and Finn each met a xynivin…

    Summary

    At some point, most children in the galaxy receive a foretoken from their clan or family. The materials and symbols of the foretoken are always chosen with care—they have a special meaning. Foretokens, after all, are supposed to predict one’s future as well as one’s temperaments or traits.

    But foretokens are also supposed to be ready predictors of soulmates. It is said that a good foretoken will practically sing out when one’s soulmate is near.

    This is the story of two generations of Bey-Damerons and their foretokens...

    Shara believes in magic, but Kes takes some convincing.

    And Poe’s foretoken broke when he was nine, but Finn never even got one.

    Summary

    In a universe where Poe was never captured and FN-2187 never defected, the Resistance has fought the First Order to a standstill, and the two sides agree to a peace treaty so they can retreat and lick their wounds. One of the terms of the treaty is that, to symbolize the new detente, a representative of each side shall wed the other...and of course the Generals can only ask their most loyal fighters to step forwards.

    Poe's more than a little dubious about marrying a Stormtrooper, but for the sake of peace, he'll do almost anything. And FN-2187 will do his duty.

    Summary

    “I’m sorry,” Poe says, fifteen minutes into the sitrep in Mothma’s office, “can you repeat everything that you just said, but slower? Maybe try words with fewer syllables.”

    Mothma, austere as ever in a silver pantsuit and her Rachel Maddow haircut, leans back against her desk and says, “The First Gentleman punched Greedo Baxter in the face this morning.”
