Star Wars, 3, Jyn Erso/Cassian Andor

I am so into the rebelcaptain ship now, that I felt the need to add to the already awesome recs in this community.

Why This Must Be Read: This captures their dynamic perfectly in a modern, crime-fighting detective AU. Normally, I feel writers have a particular strength in capturing either Jyn or Cassian's voices over the other, but this writer and fic captures both characters down to a tee with a slow but satisfying build-up.

She steals a look at him. At the sharpness of his profile, the crisp cut of his facial hair, softened by the lushness of his lips, the way his hair falls messily into his eyes. It’s only been a few months, but that face has already become a touchstone, something she can rely on. She’s relied on other people before, and it’s never worked. She’s not sure about this, either. He might leave too. He might decide Kay is the better partner, might decide she’s too wild or too reckless or too—something—to have around, and leave her behind, just like everyone else did. Rip her away from everything, from her desk and her chair and this little apartment and Bodhi’s grin and clever wit. Or—he might not. She’s never known anyone like Cassian before. He’s not her father or her mother, not Saw, not any of the people who have drifted in and out of her life before.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a lighter and funnier fic that manages to stay in character throughout it all. I'm a sucker for the rumors trope, and this fulfills that need perfectly.

Whoever keeps spreading rumors of him and Jyn sleeping together every time she so much as stops by his room is going to get decked if Cassian ever finds them.

“I mean, we’re not,” he complains to Bodhi one afternoon, the two of them wiling the time away by upgrading a ship. Neither of them are healed enough to be on proper missions yet, so they make themselves useful in whatever ways they can. “Sleeping together, I mean.”

Bodhi doesn’t say anything, but he raises an eyebrow at him. Skeptical. Cassian wills the flush on his cheeks to cool.

“She – she has nightmares,” he explains, knowing he sounds too defensive and unable to do anything about it. “That’s it.”

“But you are, ah, sleeping together,” Bodhi points out, not looking away from the roof of the ship as he fiddles with the machinery instead. “In the most innocent sense of the word.”

Cassian grumbles, but can’t argue. Bodhi doesn’t press him, but he does seem a little smug about it.

Why This Must Be Read: This is soft, slow, intimate, and utterly heart-wrenching. It is a look at what the entire Rogue One mission would've looked like had Cassian and Jyn had just gotten a little more time to get to know one another.

She surprises herself with the force of the want in her. She’s only known him a few weeks—and he’s gruff, and secretive, and single-minded to a dangerous degree—but he’s the first person in a long time she’s had any real ties to. And yes, his loyalty is not to her so much as it is to the cause she’s now a part of. But for now, he’s just a little bit hers in a way that no one else has been for a very, very long time.
