Del Dryden fell hard for Chirrut x Baze
SO MUCH YES TO THIS. I was talking to El about this in the parking lot on our way out of the movie because I'd legit burst into tears at the “I am one with the Force...” thing when Chirrut died. To me it was the romantic one-up to “I have been, and always shall be, your friend” as far as death-scene lines go.
I want all the Chirrut/Baze backstory so hard, but I almost don't want it if they aren't willing to make it the romance it deserves to be. Better to stick with the slew of inevitable fic I'm sure is already amassing.
flmom1957 has a good handle on a description of love
flmom1957 in What Has Been the Most Accurate Description of Love?
This is rather lengthy but after almost 30 years of marriage, it explains the best...“To love someone is like moving into a house,” Sonja used to say, “At first you fall in love in everything new, you wonder every morning that all this belongs to you, as if fearing that someone will suddenly come rushing through the door and say that there has been a terrible mistake, you weren't supposed to live in a wonderful place like this. Then over the years the walls become weathered, the wood splinters here and there, and you start to love that house not so much because of all its perfections, but rather for its imperfections. You get to know all the nooks and crannies. How to avoid getting the key caught in the lock when it's cold outside. Which floorboards flex slightly when one steps on them or exactly how to open the wardrobe doors without them creaking. These are the little secrets that make it your home.” Fredrik Bachman, A Man Called Ove

There is a scene in Emma Bull's War for the Oaks where the heroine (Eddi) asks the hero how he knows it's love he's feeling. I've always thought his response is pretty great.
“I’ve no surety that it is. I know only parts of what I feel; I may be misnaming the whole. You dwell in my mind like a household spirit. All that I think is followed with, ‘I shall tell that thought to Eddi.’ Whatever I see or hear is colored by what I imagine you will say of it. What is amusing is twice so, if you have laughed at it. There is a way you have of turning your head, quickly with a little tilt, that seems more wonderful to me than the practiced movements of dancers. All this, taken together, I’ve come to think of as love, but it may not be. It is not a comfortable feeling. But I find that, even so, I would wish the same feeling on you.”
