anghraine: jyn erso and cassian andor unnecessarily cooperating to bypass security with an imperial officer's hand (jyn and cassian [one-person job])
I regularly get sucked into the headiness of Tumblr's level of activity (and ... I couldn't find good RO icons at the time, which is an absurd reason not to post but ... icons!!!), but still. Eep. Sorry to anyone who actually reads over here.

title: per ardua ad astra (10/?)
verse: Death Star
characters: Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, Bodhi Rook; OCs—Dr Esten and a nameless Imperial; shameless Jyn/Cassian, as magnificently illustrated by[personal profile] sqbr.
stuff that happens: Jyn and Cassian plan for gathering information and deepening their covers; Cassian's recovery continues, not as quickly as they want; and in the meanwhile, emotions and coping mechanisms!
previous chapters: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine


“How much pain have you been in?” she asked. “On a scale of one to ten.”

Frowning, Cassian said, “I don’t know. Five, perhaps.”

Esten glared at him.

“Eight.”

“Eleven,” said Jyn.

He shot her a look of betrayal. “Thank you for your contribution, Lyr.”

title: per ardua ad astra (4/?)
verse: Death Star
characters: Jyn Erso, Bodhi Rook, Cassian Andor; OCs—Dr Esten, Corporal Zekheret, Sergeant Bain Efrah, various nameless Imperials
stuff that happens: Jyn doesn't like spying, news at eleven; Bodhi gets news from the stormtrooper grapevine; release of How To Annoy Xenophobes, a book by Cassian Andor
previous chapters: one, two, three

To her annoyance, he mentioned nothing of substance beyond his opinion that things would be better with Governor Tarkin running the Death Star.

“Can’t be worse than Krennic,” said a sergeant across from them, one of the only female ones Jyn had yet seen. “Backwater creep who thinks he’s better than the people doing the real work. I saw him flouncing around in that cape once, like he’s Darth fucking Vader. Ugh. It’ll be just our luck if he made it off. I bet he has.”

Jyn felt an unexpected glow of benevolence. Cheerfully, she said, “No, he didn’t. Some Rebel shot him in the back.”

title: per ardua ad astra (3/?)
verse: Death Star
characters: Jyn Erso and Bodhi Rook; Cassian Andor, technically; OCs—Corporal Pralit, Dr Esten
stuff that happens: Even on the Death Star, Jyn gets to appreciate the small joys of life: running water, quality health care, and local news.
previous chapters: one, two

She felt faintly soiled. More than faintly. Did it feel the same to Cassian?

Everything I did, I did for the Rebellion. Not the words of a man who enjoyed the choices he made. Not even the words of a man who believed them right, except as necessary sacrifices for a greater moral end. Perhaps he hated this near as much as Jyn. But Cassian had the cause to live by, even his darkest paths lit by that clear, shining purpose. Jyn—she didn’t quite know what she had, even if she managed to claw their way out of this place. She believed, she hoped, she cared about the fight. She did now. And she wouldn’t give up, ever. She just … she couldn’t see herself existing in Cassian’s stark simplicities, everything bleak or brilliant.

In any case, she felt as if she walked backwards, back to Lianna. None of this for the cause, for some great end, just survival. But not hers alone, she reminded herself. Cassian’s and Bodhi’s. They needed her. That was a cause in itself.
