*note* rules 3, 4, and 5 stolen from an episode of The Riches, because they're great rules.

Star Wars: A New Hope
Title: Rules
Prompt: 5 Things
Characters: Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, C3P0, Chewbacca
Rating: G

Summary: “Rules. Now, I know what you're thinking; smugglers don't follow rules! That's what makes them smugglers. Well, kid, I'm here to tell you that you're wrong. Laws, we break 'em. That's not even a discussion. But rules are a completely different thing.”

--

“Okay, listen, kid; the first thing you need to know about being a smuggler is that there are rules.”

“I'm not a smuggler,” Luke pointed out wearily, like he'd had this conversation many times in the past three days. (He hadn't. They'd discussed his future twice, maybe three times if you counted that one heated argument about idealism versus self-preservation. And maybe once when Chewie had gotten him a little bit drunk; how was the Wookie supposed to know the kid was a lightweight?) At least he wasn't arguing anymore. To Han, that was a sign that he was softening.

Rules,” he repeated, with more emphasis than strictly necessary. “Now, I know what you're thinking; smugglers don't follow rules! That's what makes them smugglers. Well, kid, I'm here to tell you that you're wrong. Laws, we break 'em. That's not even a discussion. But rules are a completely different thing.”

Luke raised an eyebrow. In the corner, the old man was sitting quietly, supposedly meditating; but Han could swear that he saw a hint of a smile on his face. Chewie was openly skeptical of his statement.

Ungrateful heathens. But it didn't matter. The kid was going to get his lesson one way or the other, and he was going to be so dazzled by the life that he joined their little crew immediately and left this ridiculous Rebellion crap behind. Idealism did not breed longevity in this day and age. And, as annoying and stubborn and cocky as the kid could get, Han also much preferred him alive.

“If you all could cut it out with your silent judgment, I am actually trying to impart some knowledge here.” He ignored Chewbacca's roaring laughter. “Rule One: Trust no one but your own crew, and sometimes not even them. Trusting people gets you dead. This is particularly true of farm kids with attitudes and their heads in the clouds, not that I know anyone like that...” Luke shrugged, and leaned back in his seat and closed his eyes.

Hm.

“Rule Two: Watch your crew's backs. You never know what might be coming, so be prepared for everything.”

“That sounds like two rules to me,” Luke pointed out.

Han threw his hands in the air. “Hey, I didn't write 'em! I just pass 'em on. Rule Three: Don't screw up. This one is immediately and aptly followed by Rule Four: Seriously. Don't screw up.”

“Are they the same to balance out the double rule? Because I'm not sure it really works that way...”

Han was getting tired of this kid's sass. “Look, do you want to learn the rules, or not?”

“Not.”

“Well, too bad!” He huffed, arms crossed over his chest. No amount of money was worth this. “Rule Five: Cash out before you pass out.” Chewie rumbled something under his breath. “No, I don't understand what it means, Fuzzball. But it's in the rules so you'd better take notes!”

Luke raised his hand. Since it was a gesture that Han hadn't seen since he was a kid in school, he decided to humor him. “Yes, Mr. Skywalker?”

“Well, I was just wondering –”

Han never did get to find out what it was that Luke was wondering. At that moment, the confounded protocol droid that they'd insisted on dragging along with them ran out into the common area (well, it was more of a fast shuffle), followed by the angrily squealing astromech unit. Damn droids.

“Master Luke!” the one was saying, flailing his arms around and looking even ridiculous than he usually did. He sounded agitated, though that wasn't all that strange, either. “Master Luke! I told him not to do it! You know that I would never allow him to do anything to jeopardize our safety. But he connected to the ship and –”

“HE WHAT?” Han thundered, because no. Nobody but him or Chewie was supposed to touch the Falcon, he'd made that very clear the moment they'd come onboard. “What did he do? Let me at him! Damn droids, what did I tell you?”

Further smuggling lessons would have to wait until later.

Title: untitled
Prompt: broken
Characters: Poe Dameron, Rey
Pairings: Gen
Rating: G

“How does she do it?” Rey asked Poe one day, the two of them sitting by Finn's bed and watching the machines monitoring his vitals (both pretending not to pray he would wake up).

Being as they hadn't talked all that much about anything but their friend, it took Poe a second to fully register the question. “You mean the General?” he asked finally.

“Yes.”

Well, that was a loaded question. “The General does a lot of things, Rey. You're gonna have to be a little bit more specific than that.”

“Why isn't she falling apart?” She seemed almost embarrassed by the question, a blush crawling up her cheeks. “I mean...I've barely been off Jakku a week, and I've flown a ship and made friends and lost them and been captured and escaped and fought Kylo Ren and almost died but didn't...anyways, so much has happened, and it's all I can do not to burst into tears at any moment.” Poe had a feeling that she didn't say that lightly. Rey wasn't the type to admit weaknesses to anyone but herself, and maybe not even then. Certainly not to a man she barely knew and only trusted because Finn and BB8 trusted him. “She's so strong.”

For once, Poe didn't have a ready answer on his tongue. Aunt Leia (he still had trouble reconciling The General with the woman whose shoulders he'd climbed on as a child) wasn't easy to explain when you hadn't grown up in the world she'd helped to build. Stories about the Rebellion and the fall of the Empire had been taught to him before he'd walked on his own. They were part of him, as much as sand and scraps and determination were a part of Rey that he would never totally relate to.

“The General is special,” he said finally. If only he had Aunt Leia's way with words. “Believe it or not, she's been through worse than this and then some. It hasn't stopped her yet.”

“And it didn't break her?”

Poe looked at Rey's shining eyes, and saw the first sparks of hero worship. Which was all well and good (and Aunt Leia probably was a safer role model than her husband, even though Poe had clearly followed in his footsteps), but he remembered a conversation he'd had with The General not too long ago. “We are all of us broken in some way. It's what we do with the pieces that makes a difference.” There had been a faraway look in her eyes that said she was thinking of Home again, which meant Han or Alderaan depending on the day.

He shook his head. “More like...she built something out of the pieces,” he said finally. “It all depends on what you build.”

“Hm.” Rey was quiet after that, thoughtful. And there was definitely some hero worship going on. “Build something....”

Good. Poe hoped he'd be around to see what she built.

Once again, too lazy to do anything more than link...and while I got it in on time for the challenge, I'm a week late posting it here. This month has been INSANE in real life, I'm exhausted. Hopefully this weekend will be quiet enough that I can breathe.

REY

You've never had a friend before.

Sure, you knew people on Jakku. Everybody knew people; you could hardly survive in a place like that without some idea of who was around you, who would share a sip of water if you were dying of thirst and who would sell you out for a quarter portion. You weren't friends precisely. You just did what you needed to do to survive, and usually that meant helping the next guy to survive too.

Finn is different than pretty much everyone. It could just be that he's not like anyone on Jakku, but you are pretty sure that there isn't another like him in the whole universe. He's...very odd. But good. You think that you like him. You think he might be what they call a “friend”.

You've always wanted one of those.



FINN

In a very short span of time – a day, maybe two by the night cycles on Starkiller Base – you experience a lot of firsts. Your first time on Jakku. Your first real mission. Your first casualty. Your first friend not born and bred and programmed into the First Order like you were. Your first time in a TIE fighter. Your first crash. And you meet a girl for the first time who gives you all sorts of feelings that you had never even known existed (were those really a thing? did they mean something?).

It's a lot for you to take in. You sort of hope you can catch your breath before you start experiencing more new things again.



POE

You've been captured before.

There's a reason that you fly mostly solo on these things. You're not all that great at avoiding trouble; you're great at getting out of it, but there seems to be a disconnect in the middle somewhere when other people get involved. It's like they didn't read the handbook of “Poe Dameron always brings his man home”, and go straight to freaking out and generally making things ten times as difficult as they otherwise would be if they just stayed calm and rational. It's why the General authorizes your requests to go out alone, even though it's standard procedure to bring backup and you wouldn't mind the company.

Finn is the first person you've worked with who was actually useful in a crisis. Sure, he did the whole “freak the hell out” thing; but he panicked, he got over it, and he got to work. It figured that the one time someone actually trusted you to get them out alive you had to crash.

It's a minor setback. You can't have everything.



KYLO

This has never happened before.

The Force has always guided you, made you strong. Whatever you've set your mind to you have accomplished (except for rooting out your uncl—rooting out Luke Skywalker), whether it be learning a new technique or identifying a traitor or retrieving a piece of information. Never before have you had so many slip-ups, mistakes, near misses. Not all of them were within your control, but they should have been. You're going to have to do better than that from now on.

Failure isn't an option. It will not happen again.

Summary:

Beiing kidnapped while (mostly) minding your own business is, at its barest definition, a pain in the ass. If the kidnapper in question happens to be a minor Moff out of favor in what's left of the Empire, that's worse. And if that Moff happens to be observant enough to realize who you are and that you can provide leverage with both the Empire and the New Republic...

Well, as Solo liked to say, “I've got a bad feeling about this.”

Mara really, really questioned her choice of company sometimes.
