Oh shit. sudden Hartwin plot idea…
Eggsy doesn’t shoot JB, Harry says he’ll sort this out when he gets back. Rest of the movie happens.
and then, in a supremely disappointing twist, after Vday, Eggsy doesn’t get knighted. He failed his test, saving the world didn’t change shit, and didn’t matter to the stiff weak-chinned posh assholes that are still around the knights’ table.
So Eggsy gets compensation from Kingsman, enough to save his mum and daisy and move somewhere else and keep his one suit and he’s out to drift. And it sucks, and eggsy doesn’t know what to do with himself anymore, he’s so jilted at this point. He gets some schmo job just to keep an income, at a grocery store or someshit, maybe a personal trainer at a gym? idk. doesn’t matter. whatever it is it’s thoroughly unfulfilling and eggsy gets morose and resigned while dealing with his Vday ptsd and mourning Harry and his own life/future/potential lost.
Then bam. nearly a year later guess who shows up on Eggsy’s doorstep. None other than his Harry and its a strange and sad reunion. Eggsy doesn’t even get why Harry’s bothered with him at this point he’s pretty deeply entrenched in his own self-loathing.
then Harry proposes a thing. Reminds Eggsy that he said he’d sort this out when he got back, and it took a while, but now he’s back, and he’s sticking to his word and he’s sorting this and Eggsy should really go and quit that shite job, Harry has a better one.
And Eggsy perks. Harry proposes him to be his own knight. Harry’s own personal agent. Directly under Arthur’s orders (for thats who Harry is now. They are still interviewing new Galahad recruits over at Kingsman). Like a ghost operative I suppose, because Harry needs him, wants Eggsy to stay (even if he won’t admit that to the boy), and Harry has tasks he cannot entrust to kingsman at large. Espionage within other mercenary spy organizations and the like.
Eggsy will need to be better than he was, better than a kingsman, more specific tactical training, better at just about everything because he has to be that much more careful hide from goddamn spies, but Harry trains him at night, and eggsy moves into his home and in no time at all the boy is infiltrating kingsman without getting caught just to pop into Arthur’s office carrying lunch.
Eggsy gets his spark back, his soul, his eyes bright, and he performs for his king immaculately. he does anything and everything asked of him and does it perfectly because its all for Harry, his Harry, back from the dead, and Eggsy would burn the world for that man (had contemplated doing just that instead of saving it on Vday if burning it would have brought Harry back). Eggsy is gorgeous and dangerous and isolated and maybe a bit unhealthily obsessed and its just…yes.
