anonymous asked:

32 and cassian/bodhi?

Something that’s actually short for a change.


“I think I’m in love with you and I’m terrified,” Cassian blurts out before Bodhi can get away.

The pilot turns to look at him with deliberate slowness.

“You? Terrified?”

Bodhi considers him with crossed arms and raised eyebrows.

“Cassian Andor, lifelong Rebel soldier, intelligence agent – once known as Fulcrum –  and the scariest man in the Rebellion… Is terrified? Of me?”

Cassian is speechless.

Since when does Bodhi think he is the scariest man in the Rebellion?

“That’s…Not what I said,” he protests, “I said that being in love with you is terrifying.”

“Why?”

Because if you reject me I’ll quite literally die, is what he thinks. What he says is:

“Because… Damn it, Bodhi. You know the kind of life we lead. I’m afraid of losing you.”

Bodhi seems to consider this with all the care in the world.

“And if I said I felt nothing for you, would that make it easier? Would not being with me make it less painful for you if something happened to me?”

“No,” is Cassian’s lightening-fast reply.

“Then I see no point in lying to you,” Bodhi says and closes the distance between himself and Cassian.

He grasps the front of Cassian’s jacket and pulls him in for a kiss that is over far too quickly.

“I’m in love with you, too.”

These Reports Allege Trump Has Deep Ties To Russia
A dossier, compiled by a person who has claimed to be a former British intelligence official, alleges Russia has compromising information on Trump. The allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors.
By Ken Bensinger, Miriam Elder, Mark Schoofs

A dossier making explosive — but unverified — allegations that the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” President-elect Donald Trump for years and gained compromising information about him has been circulating among elected officials, intelligence agents, and journalists for weeks.

The dossier, which is a collection of memos written over a period of months, includes specific, unverified, and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians. CNN reported Tuesday that a two-page synopsis of the report was given to President Obama and Trump.

Now BuzzFeed News is publishing the full document so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government.

A government intelligence agent takes an undercover job in an office building. Write about them tracking down whoever keeps stealing people’s lunches from the break room.

i respect your opinions but:

here me out: Poe Dameron was not obsessed with Cassian Andor. He was obsessed with Bodhi Rook. 

Yeah, Cassian is this amazing intelligence agent, but Bodhi. Bodhi. Bodhi Rook is a master pilot. Bodhi Rook was an imperial pilot, and was brave enough to see the empire for what it truly was. He’s the one who ran for his life to deliver a message for Galen Erso bc he knew it was the right thing to do, and bc he wanted to make up for everything he’d done with the empire. One of a million cargo pilots, he still felt responsible enough to find Saw Garerra (a known terrorist extremist) on a hostile planet, and when that didn’t work? After the mind fuckery and the torture? he joins the fucking rebellion and goes to get the death star plans on a suicide mission. 

so yeah, cassian andor is amazing (worth adoration of his own) but for Poe? He saw a stormtrooper take off his mask and show a real face - a scared face on someone who was supposed to be his enemy. maybe he was thinking about Bodhi Rook, hero of the rebellion and pilot of Rogue One, who defected the empire all those years ago. maybe this is why he was willing to take that chance

Saw this and had to rotoscope

what I like the most about Twin Peaks is that Dale Cooper is so different from other crime solving leads they’re always like

I am a mysterious, cold agent that solves crimes with pure logic and intelligence

while Agent Cooper is like

I love these trees. I saw a bunny today. I like coffee and pie. I got this dream with mysterious puzzles. let’s throw stones at bottles to see who the murderer is. Do you know about Tibet?

“ … I’ve seen stuff like that before in Moscow; it’s junk. You send me to Moscow and I could get you a better dossier than that and it wouldn’t even have the factual errors in it. It’s scuttlebutt. It’s rumor. It’s generated by so-called ‘private intelligence agents’ who are out to make a buck. They’ll sell it to anybody. But the question is: What is it doing in our political discourse? What are the motives? Why’d CNN put it on the air? Why is the FBI and the CIA even touching this stuff? Something’s going on… I’ve never seen anything like this!”

-Stephen F. Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies and politics at New York University and Princeton University, on the Buzzfeed ‘Dossier’

So, I think I came up with a pretty cool, pretty diverse cluster for this Sense8 fanfic idea that’s in my head.

  • a Muslim housewife in Lagos, Nigeria
  • a Russian-American freerunner in New York City
  • a Brazilian supermodel from Rio de Janeiro who is also a practitioner of Candomblé.
  • a Roman Catholic priest in the Vatican
  • a Chinese prostitute in Macau
  • an Australian paramedic in Sydney
  • a female intelligence agent with the Israeli Mossad

Now, all I have to do is invent the sensate that birthed them and figure out whether or not I want this cluster to tie in at all with the show Sense8 and the 8/8 cluster.

39- going away to war au - rebelcaptain

can be read as a follow-up to my in the spaces series, but definitely works as a standalone!

One, she suspects, will take a lot more convincing than the other. Which is why she decides to start with the simpler target, knowing it will help with later negotiations.

“You must be bored out of your mind, Major,” she starts over a friendly drink.

Cassian Andor gives a smile that is warm and, Leia suspects, entirely calculated. It makes him look about ten years younger, the nerfherder. “The Military Disarmament Act included spies, apparently.” 

He pours her a drink. She accepts with an equally warm smile that is equally calculated. Outside, the sounds of a cantina brawl waft up. A modest flat on Nar Shaddaa isn’t what she imagined for the retirement of one of the Rebellion’s top intelligence agents.

…though she has her suspicions on the retirement part. Leia takes a careful sip of her ale. It’s strong enough to strip wires–Nar Shaddaa. 

“I suspect you know why I’m here.” There’s no sense delaying. Of her shortlist of recruits, Cassian Andor’s name was near the top for good reason.

“You already know my answer,” Cassian says calmly. “I’m sure Poe’s told you where the reconnaissance on the First Order’s supply routes comes from.”

“He has.”

“So why don’t you ask me what you really came here to ask me?” His question isn’t hostile, only patient. Eyes still sharp and alert as they were during the war over thirty years ago.

“Sure,” she says, and this time the smile is more amused. “Tell me where to find your wife.”

Jyn Erso, it turns out, has been hiding in plain sight. Leia finds her in a cantina just outside the New Republic’s senatorial complex on Hosnian Prime, her fingerless gloves faceted to a cup of something Leia can smell from the door.

She’s attempting to arm wrestle a Tognath. The bizarre display, especially in a more polished establishment, has drawn itself some onlookers. Most giving well-crafted frowns of disapproval. Leia approaches the table, which earns her the same frowns.

“Twenty credits on the Tognath,” she says dryly.

Jyn looks up, and if she’s surprised she doesn’t show it. “Hardly the way to start off recruitment-” her hand gets viciously slammed to the other side of the table.

“Pay.” The Tognath extends his hand. Jyn puts a credit chip begrudgingly in it. Pleased, the tall alien takes one look at Leia and decides there’s other tables he’d rather frequent.

Jyn blows a strand of grey-brown hair out of her face, leaning back in her chair in a way that is just so Han that Leia knows she’s finding the right kind of trouble. “Well. I assume you have a pitch prepared.”

Leia helps herself to the chair across from her. Grins. “So you’ve spoken with Cassian.”

“No, I’ve just heard the rumors.” She sighs. “You asked Cassian already?”

“Yes.”

“And I’m sure he was ready to re-enlist.”

“Of course.”

Jyn sends her a look that is part begrudging, part admiration. “Smart,” she admits.

“I try.” Leia watches Jyn. After retiring from the military following the Battle of Jakku, she’d made a name for herself as an agent, and saboteur, for the New Republic Security Bureau. “You come highly recommended.”

“Mon Mothma,” she curses under her breath.

“Mon Mothma,” Leia agrees. “So do you actually want the pitch?”

Jyn stares at her for a long time. “Let me guess, something about insurmountable odds and few resources?”

“Closer to zero resources.”

“To fight an evil that’ll ruin the galaxy, one that the senate won’t acknowledge?”

“That evil, yes.”

Jyn snorts, finishing the rest of her drink. “I’m not great with the chain of command,” she warns.

“Good,” Leia says lightly. “I’ll promote you for it.”

Jyn’s eyebrows raise. Her military record was notorious during the war–incredible feats that just barely balanced out routine acts of insubordination and defying orders. Jyn Erso had retired at the Sergeant’s paygrade, despite five years with the Pathfinders, fighting on Endor, infiltrating Tayron, and serving on the frontlines of Jakku.

“Does this mean I get a medal?” Jyn doesn’t quite smirk, but it’s close. And Leia knows that she has her.

“I’ll give you one everyday, if you want.”

Jyn Erso shakes her head, lifts her empty glass up. “To more of this shit,” she toasts unceremoniously. 

Leia holds up an imaginary cup in solidarity.

When Jyn’s scoffed boots land on the tarmac of D’Qar, there’s someone waiting for her. It’s been three months since she’s been able to see her husband, but their reunions always feel the same. She dumps her bag on the ground and steps into his arms. 

“Here we go again,” she mutters into the soft leather of his jacket.

Behind them, young men and women in orange flightsuits do runs in a squadron. Engineers perform diagnostics on battered, ancient X-Wings that Jyn suspects were unearthed from museums. 

Cassian kisses the top of her head.

“Welcome home.”

I will bet you anything that she can tell the chiss agents apart from their walks alone though.

BuzzFeed publishes unsubstantiated Trump report, raising ethics questions
Site posted documents about his purported behaviour in Russia with a warning that they contained errors and were ‘unverified and potentially unverifiable’
By Rory Carroll

BuzzFeed’s decision to publish an intelligence report filled with salacious and unsubstantiated claims about Donald Trump’s purported behavior in Russia has triggered a political storm and debate over media ethics.

The news website posted the unredacted documents on Tuesday, just 10 days before Trump’s inauguration, with a warning that the contents contained errors and were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.

The decision to put the claims in the public domain forced other media outlets to repeat the allegations or ignore a story that lit up the internet. Some critics rounded on BuzzFeed, calling it irresponsible.

The documents, reportedly compiled by a British former intelligence agent, alleged that the Kremlin was “cultivating, supporting and assisting” Trump for at least five years.

They also alleged that Russian spies had exploited the president-elect’s “personal obsessions and sexual perversion” to gather compromising material.

Zdzisław Beksiński - Katyń 

The Katyń Masacre starting April 3, 1940, was prompted by NKVD chief Lavrentiy Beria’s proposal to execute all captive members of the Polish Officer Corps, dated 5 March 1940, approved by the Soviet Politburo, including its leader, Joseph Stalin. The number of victims is estimated at about 22,000. The victims were executed in the Katyn Forest in Russia, the Kalinin and Kharkiv prisons, and elsewhere. Of the total killed, about 8,000 were officers taken prisoner during the 1939 Soviet invasion of Poland, another 6,000 were police officers, and the rest were arrested Polish intelligentsia the Soviets deemed to be “intelligence agents, gendarmes, landowners, saboteurs, factory owners, lawyers, officials and priests.” By physically eliminating the Polish military, intellectual, economic, and patriotic elite, Stalin attempted to handicap the Polish nation and make it incapable of functioning independently from the Soviet Union, and incapable of resisting foreign dominance. 
The Soviet plans for the massacre were known to the British authorities, but were not acted against in favor of preserving good relations with the Russians. To this day, the Russian government has refused to name the Katyń Massacre a war crime or genocide. Indeed, the Russian state and media are silent on the issue of the Katyń Massacre to this day, 75 years later.
