it starts somewhere
summary: Jyn TP’s the wrong house, and Cassian pretends to be her boyfriend to prevent her from getting arrested.
a/n: based on that one au trope about “throwing eggs at a house on a dare only to be caught by parent who is a cop and tries to cop out by claiming said son/daughter is an ex” or something like that
fake dating au bc i live for this shit
It starts like this:
The house next to Cassian’s belongs to Leia’s asshole of an ex-boyfriend. His name is irrelevant, as is his life considering two days ago, he outright cheated on her. Jyn hates cheaters. She hates them a lot. And she hates them when they hurt her friends. Which is why she is ready to set her revenge plan in motion.
She’s a quite loyal person. Really. Even if sometimes… a tad bit immature.
Leia tells Jyn her revenge plan is ridiculous and unnecessary though Jyn strongly believes otherwise. “I don’t want you to get caught by the cops.”
She waves away Leia’s worries. “It’s just toilet paper. He’ll never see me if I’m working alone.”
And Jyn is right. To an extent.
He never sees her coming because somewhere along Leia’s explanation of what her ex-boyfriend’s house looks like and where it’s located, Jyn messes up a couple of things including but not limited to—the color of the shingles, the color and make of the car out front, and most importantly, the numbers on the house.
Which is, unfortunately, how she ends up throwing toilet paper at Cassian’s house instead.
