I’d heard the stories, of course.

Every functioning astromech had.

He was legend.

R2-D2, the droid who’d won two wars and destroyed two Death Stars; who kept two generations of Jedi safe; and who never had a memory dump, that dream of all droids.

He was too good to be true.

So since I’d never seen him, I filed his story as folklore and moved on.

But then, that fateful day on the flight line, I saw him.

It was just a glimpse, through the slats of a crate, but that flash of blue and silver was unmistakable.

Still, I told myself it was nothing.

Many astromechs looked similar, after all.

But when we arrived at our next base; when the dust had settled on yet another planet, I kept thinking about what I saw.

Poe told me to forget it, but I’m a droid. I don’t forget much.

So I found him.

It took me three standard days, but I found him.

And he wouldn’t budge. Nothing.

The protocol droid kept telling me something about a low power setting, but I wouldn’t have it.

I kept trying to wake him.

And finally, one day, it worked.

The legend lives.

A/N: My personal headcanon is that BB-8 discovered Artoo sometime before TFA and has been trying constantly to wake him up since.
