    Summary

    People didn’t like Gavin Reed. Gavin Reed didn’t like people. It went together like gin and tonic, you can’t have one without the other. Fate decided that Nines hated him and he hated Nines and so they kept playing their game by these set rules, never questioning the absurdity.

    Maybe it was a coincidence that six months into their partnership, Gavin distinctly remembered rules are meant to be broken. It turned Gavin into pretending to dislike Nines. On the flip side, it turned Nines into a dense idiot with a crush, unable to grasp the concept of love. Both in utter denial.

    Gravity works against them, draws them closer at a frightening pace. The android appears less opposed to it. How long will it take Gavin to realize he has to pull the door and stop pushing it like an imbecile?

    Summary

    Jesper and Wylan meet at a farmers’ convention and, long story short, they might have to overthrow the government.

    Jesper was supposed to spend spring break at Nina’s—then a joint turned up in his backpack and his da decided he was coming to the convention instead. He’s miserable and bored until a chance encounter with a shy artist. He never expected to meet someone sweet, gorgeous, and interested in him in the middle of Iowa.

    There’s just one tiny problem: Wylan’s father is nationally prominent and openly homophobic.

     

    Modern American politics AU -- you've been warned.

    Summary

    Jesper had gone into a casino three months ago. He’d only placed one bet, but one was enough.

    He’d come back to their then-hideout, bug-eyed, hands fiddling with anything they could reach. He told Inej that he’d had a relapse. She remembered how his mouth had looked as it formed the word, how painful it seemed to be to admit it. His hands wouldn’t stop shaking.

    In the last two years, Inej had learned to run on rooftops like they were high wires. She’d learned to slide her knives in the soft tenderness under ribs, to wear black so she could move in and out of buildings unnoticed. She’d learned how to plant her knee into a groin and how to bite back. And now her hands were shaking and her neck was stiff from sleeping in a corner after being too afraid of a bed.

    Relapse. The word was coppery in her mouth.

    Summary

    Kaz Brekker had meant it.

    He was twisted, crooked, wrong, but not so broken that he couldn't pull himself together into some semblance of a man for her.
    So he would show her that there was more to him than revenge. He would shed his armour, take on her hopes, her dreams, her fears. Bad knee, scars, demons and flaws, nothing would stop him helping her carry it all.

    Look Jordie, I'm living.

    Summary

    But she didn’t wait for an answer. She was too impatient, lifting back up to kiss him instead, "fragile" and "gentle" repeating in her head. Jyn was too eager, mashing her teeth against his lips at the last second. But then Cassian was smiling against her mouth, adjusting to meet her, moving to do what she meant to.

    Written for MayTheFourth RebelcaptainNetwork's exchange, for the lovely Yavemiel's prompt: Jyn and Cassian making their relationship work around the war (with a happy ending please, I have a weakness!)
