I keep promising myself that I won't—I even managed to hold to it for, like, eight whole months! But I love Rogue One
so much. SO. MUCH.
I was idly thinking of shippy AUs but nothing except "well they need to kiss" came to mind, lol, when a terrible and wonderful realization settled on me about the potential disaster that surviving above Scarif could really be. I wrote up a babbling post about it on Tumblr, mapped out an eleven-page outline, and the post started accumulating enough notes that I got anxious that someone else might write it first. (Clearly the best motivation for writing.)

per ardua ad astra (aka I couldn't think of a title and went for maximum pretension)verse:
Death Star AU! The reason for the name will become evident by the end of the chapter. (There's considerable overlap with the Rogue One backstory of the Lucyverse

Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, Bodhi Rook; later, Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo; Jyn/Cassianlength:
4900 words (this chapter; God knows what it’ll be eventually)stuff that happens:
Jyn, Cassian, and Bodhi survive, only to face the worst bonus mission ever.
“Jyn, we have to leave now,” Bodhi was shouting.( Read more... )
She wasted no more time, just climbed over the railing, ignoring the twinges in her leg. They were about to be worse, but she could see Cassian near-collapsed over Bodhi. She’d live. Hopefully.
