The proposal just made my evening! It was wonderful and sweet and awkwardly halting. Just right! And K2 sounded very much himself. Of course this raises a dozen questions about their marriage and Luke and Jyn's friendship, how does Kay get on with Jyn, etc. I shan't trouble you with them all just now because this was just meant as a thank you! I thoroughly enjoyed it :D
Thank you! I’m glad you liked it :) :)
Kaytoo can be a bit of a challenge, but he was amazingly fun to write for this one. And I really did want the proposal to be both sweet, in a them way, and phenomenally awkward, so thank you there, too.
Feel free to ask anything, though I can’t promise to answer if it’s too spoilery :P
Luke and Jyn are very definitely friends; they have a lot more in common that is evident at first glance, including some decided similarities in their respective relationships to Leia and Cassian. Obviously there are some major differences, but they both started off from a place of “the Empire is a problem, but not my problem, I’ve got to focus on my own people” and were plainly inspired by these odd crusading spies / losing everything they knew.
(I think Luke admires Cassian for many of the same reasons he admires Leia, but without the instinctive camaraderie/psychic tie that they have, he’s not as comfortable with him. So he and Jyn are a bit closer.)
Kay and Jyn are basically the “vitriolic bros” trope. At heart/datachip, they respect and even like each other a great deal, but temperamentally they still clash. So they tend to default to quarrelling, but it’s essentially friendly. Now and then they find themselves in total accord, and they’re pretty much unstoppable when it happens.
