    Summary

    Their first meeting had set a precedent for most of their meetings to come, with an arrow lodged only a scant few inches away from Momota’s face and Ouma perched and looming on an overhead balcony like the Fell Dragon of legend himself.

    “Sorry, hero,” he’d said, another bolt already nocked and at the ready. “But this bounty’s already been claimed.”

    Saihara sets down his mug and folds his hands across the table. “It sounds like you’re saying you and Momota-kun are alike, in some ways.”

    It’s innocuous enough of a question, but something still shifts. Ouma’s expression goes slack and, almost unbidden, his eyes dart over to where Momota is still puzzling over the cards. The air hangs heavy with something Akamatsu can’t place. She glances between Ouma and Momota, and then Ouma and Saihara, and suddenly feels like she’s missed something about this entire conversation, like they’ve been speaking in a veiled language that sounded right until she thought about the words long enough to discover they were gibberish all along.

    Ouma eventually turns back to Saihara with a wry, cryptic smile. “Well,” he says with a lazy shrug. “You can spend all day arguing the differences between a crow and a raven, but they’re both still the same corvus in the end.”

    THIS AU IS EVERYTHING I'VE EVER WANTED.
    Perfect characterizations and dialogue and, even if you don't know a thing about Fire Emblem, just read it. It's so good!

    Summary

    Lyra has prepared for this. They both have. But her preparations are a bit different than her husband's, and she's not about to let either her husband or her daughter go without a fight.

    (In which Lyra is just as terrifying as her old friend, Saw Gerrera, and fate can go to hell.)

    Hope is what buzzes in the hangar before missions. Hope is the spring in the steps of the new recruits, bright-eyed recruits who haven’t seen the war that Jyn and Cassian have, who believe they can make a difference. Hope is the green glow on Mothma’s face in the control room and the blinding white on Princess Leia’s dress.
    Hope is the spark in Cassian’s eyes and the ember in her chest.

    An excellent AU that breathes new life into the Erso family.

    Troublesome, Krennic had called her mama before his men had opened fire. Lyra, troublesome as ever. Everyone remembered that Jyn was her father's daughter, because that was what made her valuable, that was what turned her into a weapon that could be used against the greatest mind that had ever turned his back on the Empire and walked away. Lyra hadn't mattered to them, and so they forgot that Jyn was her daughter too. If Jyn was a weapon, she aimed to be a malfunctioning blaster or a vibroblade with a cheap grip, something that could blow up in or burn the hand that wielded it. She aimed to be Lyra's daughter. She aimed to be troublesome.

    Absolutely wonderful characterizations and world-building. The writing is excellent. Definitely one of my favorite fics.

    A very fun and creative take on the SI fic. Mayu is a hilarious and fun character and I enjoy the relationships she's built up with everyone.
    The fic has almost reached its conclusion and I can't wait for the ending! This fic is fun, ridiculous, hilarious and heartwarming. I've loved every minute of my time reading it.
