Example Fanworks


Mon digs her nails into Jyn's hips like clawing her bloody will fix any of the problems that she, they, the Rebellion has, and Jyn gives a strangled noise that might have been a gasp, might have been laughter. "I forgot," she says with a smirk. "What is it - it's right if it's you? It's right because it's you? Because you turned Jyn Erso, fuckup, into Jyn Erso, hero?"
