Star Wars Fans Reckon This Is The Real Love Story in The Force Awakens

Such is the magnitude of Star Wars: The Force Awakens that it’s already spawning fan-created spin-off fiction and art. Some of it’s fairly pedestrian, but there’s one area that’s got particularly steamy particularly quickly, and that’s in the slash fiction department – ‘adult romance’ fiction, essentially – depicting romances between Poe and Finn.

According to the below tweet, there were 81 of these ‘slash fics’ on fan-fiction website Archive Of Our Own yesterday afternoon (December 21) – four days after the opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. One day later and there are nearly 40 more.

As well as all the fiction – there must be tens of thousands of words already – there’s plenty of art too, under the portmanteau hashtags #stormpilot and #finnpoe. Fans ‘ship’ (that’s a verb) a relationship they approve of, and this is some of the stuff the Stormpilot fandom are, er, shippin’…

If it were true it’d actually be a cool and groundbreaking move for a Disney film:

So, yeah. Your move, Disney.
