    Summary

    “You’ll be my bodyguard?” Luke asks, looking at Din for perhaps the first time. “I thought you owned the company.”

    “You asked for the best. I’m the best.” At least since Fett said no. He started laughing when Din asked if he’d be willing to do a half-day, full-week babysitting job, and is probably still laughing at him now from his office next door.

    --

    Din becomes Luke's bodyguard, and tries to remember how to let people in.

    Summary

    As Luke calmly walks the perimeter of the courtyard, calling out notes to his students, he seems to almost flicker between the Luke he remembers – dusty robes, boyish grins, insatiable curiosity – and this peculiar, powerful stranger who he knows nothing about.

    He still doesn’t know what all Luke’s done in the time they were apart but becoming one of the galaxy’s few remaining Jedi masters is a far cry from simply flying at the academy with his friends.

    Whatever path Luke chose, it certainly wasn't uneventful.

    *

    The last person Din expected to answer Grogu's call was Luke Skywalker - the talkative desert youth he met nearly ten years ago on the rotten sandpit that is Tattooine. A lot can happen in ten years and Din can only hope that the spark that had shone so brightly between them is still there after all these years.

    But knowing how you feel and acting on those feelings are two very different things.

    Summary

    “Oh? What are you, their king?” the Senator says sarcastically, and then freezes at the same time Din does.

    “...No,” Din says. He does not sound convincing.

    Summary

    You try your damnedest to burn it out, but Luke’s face sticks in your head. Lingers like a whiff of ozone, and no matter how hard you try to forget it when you close your eyes behind the visor of your helmet, there’s the haunting outline of his lips mapped out in your head like a constellation. His mouth. His eyes. His single bare hand, ever so gently cupped around Grogu’s body like he knew how important it was to you that he be touched like he was precious.

    And it must have worked, because you let Grogu go with him. Maybe that’s why you can’t stop thinking about that moment—how it felt to hold unwavering and long sustained eye contact with a man for perhaps the first time in the whole of your lonely life.
