my all star

stardust to stardust.

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” 

Prompt: “Stardust” - @rebelcaptainprompts 

Not quite a fic, more just me nicely rambling about stardust as a theme in Rogue One. I’ve always loved this concept.

Some millennia ago, a star collapsed. 


When Galen sees his newborn daughter for the first time, he immediately notices her strikingly blue eyes. With flecks of gold. Like stardust

“Jyn,” he says, and Lyra smiles, “My Stardust.” 


A few years later, blood splatters the mineral-rich earth of Lah’mu. 

Does a mother really die? Or does she live on in her child?

Energy is not created nor destroyed. Only transformed.

Lyra becomes one with the Force.

Jyn runs, kyber crystal swinging from her necklace. Her father’s voice the only thing in her mind. “My Stardust. Everything I do, I do for you.”


Jyn doesn’t hear her full name for a very, very long time. 

Until it tumbles out of the mouth of Cassian Andor. 

“Jyn Erso. Daughter of Galen Erso.” 

If someone who lost their hearing as a child suddenly regained it as an adult, only to hear the screams of the dying, would it feel like this?

Her heartbeat roars in her ears. She hears him. Imperial. Planet-killer. Worlds turned to dust.

My Stardust. Everything I do, I do for you.” 


She’s sobbing on the floor. Jedha crumbles around her. Dust fills her lungs. She can’t move. Won’t move.

A flaw. In the planet-killer.

She was still his Stardust. 

Saw’s voice doesn’t move her. Cassian frantically storms in.

“What have you done to her?!”

Jyn’s mind is numb, but somewhere in her mind she has an answer. Saw didn’t do this. She’s suffocating and isn’t sure if it’s the dust or the whirlwind of emotions. My father did this.

And then Cassian’s arms are around her. He pulls her, just short of carrying her out.

“Hurry up or we’ll be turned into stardust,” he says. The words spark somethng in her. Jyn follows.

Their first and last mission together.

When did “I’d rather die than go anywhere with this guy” turn into “I’ll go anywhere with this guy even if it means I can die”?

losing through you what seemed myself, i find
selves unimaginably mine, beyond
sorrow’s own joys and hoping’s very fears
yours is the light by which my spirit’s born:
yours is the darkness of my soul’s return
- you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars
—  E.E. Cummings, silently if, out of not knowable…

Baze repeating “I am one with the force and the force is with me” as Chirrut lay dying in his arms left me with tears in my eyes. You really could see how much they meant to one another. How much Baze needed Chirrut.

Jyn and Cassian grasping on to one another as they waited for death left me feeling as if I had been punched in the gut. Jyns smile just before the shockwave hit herself and Cassian showed that she was at peace. Jyn had acomplished her fathers dying wish. She was also not alone. Jyn herself said that no one has stuck around during her lifetime. And then, in her final moments, Cassian is with her, holding her tightly and providing comfort. The two began this journey together and finish it together.
