    Summary

    In the aftermath of Black Panther, Shuri fights to come to terms with seeing her brother fall. Luckily, she doesn't have to do it alone.

    --

    “I cannot tell my brother that I see him dying in my dreams -” She exhales finally, her hand going up in the direction of her brain. “Again and again. Nor my mother, nor Nakia, who see the same, I am certain. It is easy during the day, when we are altogether and there is so much to do, but when I close my eyes.” For a moment she is younger than he remembers her being, fierce still, undoubtedly, but bearing a weight too much for her shoulders. A realization that, for the first time, she has been outmatched and out done by the world. It’s a hauntingly familiar look.

    “So I thought perhaps -”

    His lip has turned up at one side, humorlessly, but, something in him reaches for her. “I knew a little bit about that?”

    Summary

    “Not planning to,” Poe says. “Besides. I have things to finish.”

    (or: Poe resolutely does not think about bright smiles and bloody helmets and of how he lost it all in the sands of Jakku.)

    Summary

    Finn wakes up and Rey isn't there. Nobody is there.

    He's always been on the outside. Why would that ever change?

    Summary

    “I called him Slip, but he was the best friend I had. He died on Jakku, when we were storming the village to search for the map.” Just like that, Poe’s skin starts to get clammy and he feels the blood drain from his face. “He was shot, blaster-fire…”

    Until Finn, stormtroopers had always been nameless, faceless things to Poe. Confessing that he'd taken Slip from Finn is hard enough, but even harder when you're telling a man you might be half in love with.
