    Summary

    He doesn’t know how long he was dead —how long he floated as nothing, finally no one who had to live up to some great legacy— but suddenly, he wasn’t.

    He wasn’t dead anymore.

    Ben Solo opened his eyes…

    And whined.

    Summary

    It’s been a month. A month since she kissed him, a month since he rejected her.

    Stop, Rey, he’d said, his hands on her shoulders, holding her as far away from his body as physically possible, refusing to even meet her eyes. We can’t.

    And then he’d left her alone, shivering, rain-soaked clothes clinging to her skin, surrounded by staves in the equipment shack outside of the sparring fields, her heart broken by four simple words.
    ---
    A month after being spurned by Master Solo, Rey finds herself on an away mission with him to Hosnian Prime to oversee negotiations between two feuding factions. Heart still on the mend from his rejection, and with the universe seemingly intent on forcing them together, Rey learns that her Master might not be as disinterested in her as he previously let on. Her only option, of course, is to torment him.

    Summary

    It will be nice to have that, a memory that won’t fade, because Kylo will leave. It will take some time, but they’ll fix his ship and he’ll fly away, leaving Rey behind. And that’s fine. He has his own life and Rey has hers. He’ll leave and she’ll manage. She always has.
    ---
    Ben does not turn to the Dark Side after that fateful night at the Jedi temple. Instead, cut off from both the Force and his family, he changes his name to Kylo in an attempt to hide his identity and turns to bounty hunting and, eventually, smuggling to make ends meet.

    Rey is a scavenger struggling to survive in the Goazon Badlands of Jakku. She spends her days crawling through the decaying skeletons of the Galactic War and fending off trouble as best she can. Her nights are spent waiting for her family to finally return for her.

    Two lonely souls meet under a different sky and different stars.

    Summary

    Alone on a desert planet, with only BB8 and a broken shirt as her company, Rey wishes she could find a way to still save Ben Solo from the monster that is her grandfather, Palpatine.

    When she wakes up in a palace, with members of the First Order bowing down to her in reverence, addressing her as Empress Palpatine, she realizes that Ben's freedom comes at a cost.

    Her own.

    Summary

    “I don’t mean to speak out of turn,” said Ben, drawing on every ounce of patience he could muster, because no matter how angry he was he would not — under any circumstances — yell at his grandmother, “but I would rather be slowly digested for a thousand years by a sarlacc than marry Rey Palpatine.”

    ---

    In a world with no Darth Vader, no Empire, and no rebellion, Naboo Senator Ben Solo and former Naboo Queen Rey Palpatine are forced into an arranged engagement by their families under one condition: they must first spend one week together in Ben’s family retreat in the Lake Country, Varykino.

    Amidst a backdrop of the Naboo countryside, Ben and Rey discover what their relationship could be without the pressures of the Galactic Senate, the royal court, or their family’s expectations.

    They quickly realize, however, that there’s far more to this arrangement than meets the eye, and there are political forces at work that threaten to disclose dark secrets kept long hidden by both their families...

    Summary

    Poe Dameron isn’t a fool, no matter the decisions he sometimes makes, when he’s up in the dark of space with bogies on his tail and nothing but empty starfield in his sights. But it’s a fool venture that’s brought him to Jakku, planet of sand and dust that gets in his nose and makes him sneeze with the dryness of it. Badgering a legend’s ex-lover into giving up where he’s gone is the last vestige of the desperate and the damned, and he’d prefer to think of the Resistance as neither, no matter what he might read on the holonet.

    It still gets him every time, though, when General Solo looks his way and lowers his voice and says please, uncomfortable giving commands even after all these years. When he comes down to it, Poe’s not really saying yes so much as he’s taking another step down the path he’s been on since Senator Leia Organa sat New Republic Defense Fleet Rapier Squadron Commander Dameron down and asked him to go where she could not follow.

    If Lor San Tekka hasn’t got a map, or at the least, a clue, that’s one thing. If he does, Poe will have it out of him one way or another.

    Summary

    Luke stood there outside in the hallway, looking in through the door as he watched Ben moving back and forth across the room to arrange the bed with blankets and pillows and everything that he could find to make their newest member comfortable.

    "Amazing. He's nesting." Lor San Tekka mused, hands folded behind his back.

    "He is. They're bonded in a way I've never seen before." Luke stroked a hand over his beard again and shook his head. "It's like a compulsion... he can't help himself."

    "Are you still going to punish him then?"

    "I have to. What he did was reckless. He could have been hurt... or someone else could have been looking for him."

    "Perhaps something lighter then?" Tekka suggested.

    "I agree. Cleaning duty would suffice." Luke responded. "For now... let's keep a close eye on this bond."

    "Are you going to tell them?"

    "I don't know."

    "They cannot escape the truth that is their family."

    ---

    "This is the Jedi Academy Au you're looking for."

    Summary

    What if Rey never fell to the Dark Side? What if that was where her story began?

    At the age of 12 Rey was bought and taken from Jakku to the Citadel on Ziost by acolytes of the Sith Religion who taught and trained her.

    Ben Solo, on the other hand, has cut himself off from the force in order to protect himself from Snoke's manipulations. He is no Jedi, but he is doing his part to help save the galaxy. Perhaps with some less than legal methods aboard his ship The Amidala

    When worlds collide, anything could happen.

    Summary

    To keep her husband safe from Emperor Palpatine, his granddaughter Rey had agreed to sever all connection to him, channeling her grief into her Sith training.

    She's made the sacrifices needed to fulfill her destiny, and yet it appears even that isn't enough to appease her kin.
    ----

    A re-imaging of the extension of this microfic:

    Their wedding day, Ben had gifted Rey with an intricately braided ring of gold; slipped it on her finger with all care and ceremony. The next morning he found its imprint on his skin; a treasured memento from his having clenched her hand in his.
     

    If only she'd been there to see it.
