    Summary

    Set slightly after the events of Cassadaga, this is in the same universe, same timeline, everything. Several people wanted to hear what happened after Ren retired from escorting and since I left it on a bit of a cliffhanger.... here's some of the resolution to that.

    When Ren decides to run for the Senate, things don't go exactly according to plan for anyone involved. But what's a political au without a lot of drama? The good news is they have a decent enough support group to get them through just about anything, right? .... r...right?

     

    [A/N: I haven't worked out exactly how long this will end up being or if I'm going to do it as a series of shorter 2-3 chapter one shots versus one big long chapter fic... but it will all be grouped under The Devil's Chair series if you want to bookmark that to keep it all straight. Grad school is the ultimate determiner of where my time is going so ... I'm going to try and bang out as much on vacation as possible and then clean it up after that. Heh. Catch me on tumblr @ dead-on-arrivals for fic updates and @ whyareyoukillingeveryone for personal trash blogging]

    Summary

    “Well, well, well. Look who we have here,” a voice says from over her shoulder, and Jess recognizes the gruff, uncaring tone without even looking behind her.

    “Miller,” she spits out, and turns to face him. “What are you doing here?”

    “You’re not the only one who goes to this school, Day,” he says sarcastically.

    Jess huffs and rolls her eyes. “I’m just surprised you’re not locked up in your dorm room getting high and wasting your tuition dollars.”

    Summary

    “Do your colleagues know how fucking possessive you are?” Kylo asks, canting his hips back, pressing into Hux’s touch as far as he can.

    Hux grins. “Does your mother know that you sleep with her political rivals?”

    Kylo’s laugh is breathy and uneven. “I don’t make a habit of it.”

    Election Night, 2012

    Summary

    "But that’s the question, innit? If we do things we don’t do are we us? Like, I wanted toast this morning, but I was running late, so if I stopped and ate the toast would I still be me just with more toast or would I end up doing other stuff different and be someone else? Every time I eat toast do I create a whole different pers-"

    Summary

    Fifty years after Commander Shepard was inducted into the Spectres, the galaxy stands on the brink of war once again: it is discovered that the asari did not evolve to have thousand-year lifespans; their longevity is due to a genetic modification, that they have kept secret from the rest of the galactic community. In the face of the immense resentment towards the Citadel Council's oldest and most respected member race this revelation causes, can Shepard find enough allies in the cause of peace to avert a war, and even if he can, how will the societies of the galaxy adapt to the availability of anti-agathic therapies?
