Summary:Poe Dameron is a beloved movie star best known for his role in the Aviator Chronicles. He’s charming, handsome, and charismatic, but to Finn, he’s the guy who saved him from a disastrous blind date. It doesn't take very long for Finn to catch up with the rest of the world when it comes to loving Poe Dameron.

Review: It’s very easy to get clumsy when working on overdone theme. We become so wrote at having read the same story in so many different variations that you can feel author’s going “blah blah blah, they fall in love, the end”. That is why this fic took my notice. Despite the minimal understanding of the characters we get from the film, the author manages to have the characters acting in interesting ways that is still true to how they seemed on screen, yet give you an idea on why they might have fallen in love beyond them both being cute. I’m impressed with the care the author’s put into the falling in love portion of their story.
