And then I thought that Kakashi low-key would like them too but he’d never admit it

AU where Geno and the pens are part of a secret organization that time travels to maintain the flow of historic events, and on one mission, Geno is tasked to go back to the 1820s to save a man (whose great-great grandson will eventually be key to a medical breakthrough that will change history) from a freak accident involving a horse carriage gone rogue. 

Anyways, the man is super thankful and insists on treating Geno to dinner, and Geno is hesitant because he’s really not supposed to interact this much with the subject but the man won’t hear a no. So Geno gets taken to this guy’s estate and meets Sidney, the man’s youngest son, who is beautiful and intelligent and basically Geno’s exact type. So right there and then Geno knows that he’s screwed.

heavenly, her smile,

beautiful, she is,

Jyn is not often nice to other people. So when her new neighbours Baze and Chirrut are, she doesn’t catch on to what’s happening until it’s too late and she’s made new friends. Then she has to come up with a way to thank them…

Before she knows it, not only is she learning to cook, but she may have made another new friend. Jyn’s not sure she can handle this much sociability.

Why do you think I married you?

I don’t rightly know

To satisfy an appetite?To save myself from being alone? Because it was the right thing to do? I had few expectations. At best you would be a distraction.      A bandage to ease a wound. But I was mistaken.                                                  You’ve redeemed me,                                                                                            and I am your humble servant.                                                                            

and I love you. 

--Aidan Turner and his beautiful red-headed brides.
