okay but think about a catch me if you can hartwin au for a second.
like eggsy as the con man who went from a nothing kid to a fake pilot, to a fake doctor, and beyond. cashing forged checks. getting in with all the posh birds who like it a bit rough.
and then there’s harry. working for whatever the british version of the feds. head of a task force to track down this master con man. chasing him all around the country on a set of very poor leads. and half glances
once eggsy figures it out of course he’s a little shit, leaving little hints behind for harry . calling him up on christmas just to be like “how you doing?” and slowly falling for each other except not realizing because theyve never really seen each other face to face (not counting that one time harry didn’t know it was him)
and then when they finally run into each other, there’s this moment where it hits harry that this famous con man he’s chasing down is 1. just really a kid 2. really familiar looking 3. winking at him and offering a chance to join the mile high club before harry puts him away “i am a pilot, after all.”
okay just like go listen to “life in living color” and tell me you dont want a catch me if you can au. (i mean, listen to the whole sound track, but at least that song)
