I feel like there could be an awesome crossover just waiting to happen. Like what if it was set in the future and the otp had parents who are heads of really old rival mob families with controlling interests in the majority of legit companies as well and there was a big fight between them about a new piece of technology/drug the companies were developing that allowed a person to see a past life. The reason why this drug/technology is so popular is because it allows people to escape the fact that the world is ending.
So otp see their reincarnated selves growing up as childhood friends with adjoining houses and one of the otp moves across the country and they loose each other. They grow up to become police detectives. As detectives they (individually) start putting together clues about how some companies are really harming the world. The otp doesn’t know this but as a reader you’re already like ‘that’s totally why the world is ending’. So one of them moves to follow the clues (that the other is already gathering). They run into each other while under cover to discover more information and (perhaps subconsciously because they remind each other of their best friend they always said they would marry) have a one night stand. The morning after is nice and relaxed and they part ways worrying they’ll never see each other again. Only to find out that Oops that was their new partner they were sleeping with. They end up getting married and finally track down how all the companies were interconnected and this huge plot (not to kill the world, to control it which is ending up with it dying). In the process they are shot and killed.
Meanwhile the Earth just gets closer and closer to ending with humanity getting more and more desperate. Otp wants to track down the person they now love after having seen their past life but realize that the person they are now is not who they were. Instead they start acting independently to ensure the survival of humanity, even if it means working with their rival mob family (who have become inexplicably aware of the situation and willing to work with them). Expecting a betrayal they put off meeting their mob counterpart until they board the last ship off Earth.
"I was never a big believer in destiny. In this life or the last one. It took me reliving my last life to find something to believe in. There are people you meet in life, or a lifetime ago, who touch your very soul that you just have to realize you will never meet again. I’ve always been a self proclaimed realist. Finding a specific soul when there are fourteen billion people on the planet, when that one soul could be a completely different gender, a different race, or not even reborn at all is so statistically unlikely that it’s practically impossible. Before today, before the moment my foot stepped onto the metal loading ramp of the last space ship to leave Earth, I would have said that the stupidest thing I have ever done was falling in love with someone who died before I was born.
My first look into those eyes, those eyes I first saw when my parents introduced me to our new neighbours, those eyes I last saw as I lay dying, and I suddenly realize that destiny doesn’t need belief to happen.”
