anghraine: cassian andor and jyn erso exchanging a glance (cassian and jyn [glance])
It's the small joys!

And here's another chapter. On Tumblr, I just said "I'm so glad everyone is reading this for domesticity, emotional ineptitude, and EU-ignoring headcanons"—I genuinely thought those might be problems, LOL. Instead, it ended up getting a lot more notes than all but the first, so apparently not. I was genuinely puzzled at first, but it is longer and shippier than usual. (Blankets and touching!)

title: per ardua ad astra (6/?)
verse: Death Star
characters: Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor; Jyn/Cassian (for real! awkward-can't-express-feelings Jyn/Cassian, but nevertheless)
stuff that happens: BACKSTORY HOUR starring Quadruple Agent Cassein Willix and Princess Senator Spy Leia Organa; Jyn gets professional advice; Cassian's neatnik paranoia is not to be stopped by mere broken bones; bonding through geological facts; Jyn behaves very well under very unfair pressures.
previous chapters: one, two, three, four, five

When she murmured I’m not used to people sticking around when things go bad to Cassian, she meant it for him, thanks and explanation and apology rolled up together. As near as she got to any of them. He had to know that. He did know—he’d tilted towards her as she spoke, leaned in to listen and to promise, their steps falling into sync from opposite directions. She never saw him do the same thing with anyone else, not with his soldiers, not Bodhi, not Kay. It wasn’t Captain Andor who told her welcome home.

Jyn still didn’t know exactly what Cassian meant. She wasn’t sure Cassian knew what he meant. But it had something to do with the fact that they stood in the Death Star, Jyn all but twitching with nerves while Cassian concealed what must be agony, and they felt something like safe.
