    Summary

    After the events of The Last Jedi, Rey and Kylo Ren seek to gain a powerful advantage over the other for their respective causes. In the same place. At the same time. Setting a sequence of events in motion neither of them expected. And causing a rupture in the Force that flings them into a very different galaxy far far away. What if in that place Rey fortuitously got everything she ever wanted? What if Kylo had no First Order to rule? What would happen if neither of them had any memory of the lives they lived before? Except maybe sometimes. When things get interesting. Which makes a tentative (and unwelcome) mutual attraction in their first year of art college in Ireland rather complicated and frustrating. When Rey and Kylo figure out something's seriously amiss in their current lives, they must work out what that is. And what they really mean to each other and where it is they are supposed to be. Because the galaxy they have left behind is facing a threat only they can conquer. If they ever stop being so absorbed in each other to even think about figuring out how to get back there, that is. A canon/canon divergent/Art college AU/Skywalker Saga Fix-it complete with our favourite clueless space virgins. And dogs.

    Summary

    Dropping into the co-pilot’s chair, she propped her feet up on the control panel. “So, back to Jakku, huh.” It wasn’t a question.

    He winced, suddenly considering how this trip might affect her. “You don’t have to come with if you don’t want to.”

    “What, and leave you to deal with that sleemo all by yourself? I don’t think so!” She glanced up at him with a broad grin. “It’s been a while since I’ve gotten to use my staff.”

    It put the sudden—and not unwelcome—picture in Ben’s mind of Rey fighting Plutt’s lackeys, fierce and terrifying and beautiful. He cleared his throat. “We’ll try talking to him, first. If that doesn’t work, then we can bust some heads.”

    Or, Ben and Rey go to an awful lot of trouble to retrieve something Ben maybe shouldn't have sold.

    Summary

    Her hand raises to her nape, where Ben was holding her, her fingers examining the low messy bun. Why? she asks in her mind, not sure if he could really hear her. Why did you do it?

    But she already knows, right? The reason was the same why she called Ben Solo her wonder and kissed him. Why she wanted to take his hand.

    ____

    The battle of Exegol leaves Rey mute and heartbroken. The bond between the dyad faded, and she has no idea what happened to Ben after death. What she knows, though, is that the galaxy needs the hero who killed Palpatine and the Resistance needs the Jedi.
    Ben Solo, on the contrary, knows three things for sure - but the fact that someone is following him as he walks through the absolute darkness, is not among them.

    Summary

    The First Order has been exposed as bloodthirsty conquerors, but is the galaxy ready to unite and stand against them? General Leia Organa and her Resistance know they cannot turn back the tide of a new empire alone. While they work to rally allies to their cause and beat back the grasping fingers of the First Order wherever they can, former stormtrooper Finn faces a difficult choice. Can he overcome the fears instilled in him by the First Order and embrace his destiny? On the far side of the galaxy, Rey endures similar struggles as she strives to learn the Jedi arts and rediscover her past under the tutelage of Luke Skywalker. Meanwhile, Kylo Ren walks a darker path. He thought he'd severed himself from his family when he killed his father, but he will learn that he has so much farther still to fall.

    Or: what if The Last Jedi had a plot beyond just "run away"?

    Summary

    Rey Johnson, newcomer actress and rising star of several silly romcoms, travels to America to finally pursue her dream of becoming a serious actress, starting by taking on the lead role in "The Nothing", the highly anticipated new film of famous director Amilyn Holdo.

    Rey's co-star: Ben Solo, established character actor, four times Oscar-nominee and a total asshole.

    And still, he and Rey seem to have some sort of chemistry, the only question is if that will remain only in front of the camera or if there's something blossoming between them that neither Rey nor Ben had expected to happen...

    ...

    Another Actors AU where going offscript is the best thing Ben Solo can do.

    Summary

    EPISODE IX: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER FIX-IT REWRITE.
    TROS shattered hearts of many and especially Reylos. Since then, I've been dutifully working on a rewrite of the movie, taking some of the scenes and pieces of dialogue I liked or found meaningful, reversing them into what they logically should be or played with them some more to enhance their significance. I've also taken some of its plot and transformed it into something that hopefully makes much more sense and it's way more satisfying than the movie itself.

    So, Palpatine is indeed back but how? And what is his game? What Rey and Ben have been up to between TLJ and TROS? What are their individual struggles and how are they going to deal with them? What is the state of the First Order and the Resistance? All answers will be gradually provided in the story as it unfolds.

    If TROS can be considered as a revenge to TLJ, then this story is my revenge to TROS and you are welcomed to join the ride.
    Centerpiece of the story is Reylo. Other characters and their actions will appear and will be mentioned but not all will be described in chapters.

    Summary

    Takes place one year after The Last Jedi. Some elements from TROS (planets, characters and some plot beats), manipulated a little or a lot to suit my version of the story. Expect appearances from past and present characters and conflict within our two opposing sides; the Resistance and the First Order, as the galaxy at large comes to terms with the complications and consequences caused by the dyad
    Rey and Kylo are very conflicted over the events in Snoke’s Throne Room so prepare for a very slow-burn romance, angst and humour as they sort out their feelings over a lengthy resolution to their epic star-crossed drama.
    This is everything I would have loved to see in TROS to close the circle of the Skywalker Saga and resolve Light and Dark, albeit with a lot more introspection than would be permissible for a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster. But it’s Star Wars and my two favourite characters and I can’t help digging into their feelings as events unfold. Written in the third person, mostly from the morally confused and increasingly enamoured perspectives of Rey and Kylo.
    Fanart will be added gradually, links to updates in Chapter 50..

    Summary

    “Why must you always do this?” She asked, her voice cracking. “Why can’t you let me pretend, even for a night, that you would choose me? I’m the one who has never been enough for you.”

    “I did choose you, Rey,” he uttered. “I will always choose you. And I chose you for something more than a dwindling rebellion, destined to fail.”

    “What do you choose me to be, then?” She sneered. “A Knight of Ren?”

    He shouldn’t rise to the bait. It was too soon for her to hear how deeply his feelings for her ran, not before he had found the moment to confess his love to her, but he couldn’t hold it in.

    “I hoped…my equal,” he paused, the words within reach, pushing against his teeth, urging him to say what he really meant. Maybe if he did, it would convince her.

    “I want you to be my wife.”

    Summary

    “Let them go, and I—" her voice wobbles before finishing, “I will too.” Ben lets out a breath of what he thinks is relief, but before he has a chance to respond she continues, “I’ll go anywhere with you, anywhere in the whole galaxy. But I won’t stay here.”

    Summary

    Hux has no solid concept of The Force; how it ebbs and flows. No way of truly knowing what it was to follow it.

    To submit to the Will of The Force.

    To go readily into whatever danger when it beckons - like it had to him only days before hand. To surrender to the Darkness and let it lead one down whatever paths it may.

    No - the General was a child when it came to his knowledge of the true workings and complexities of the universe.
    Kylo has come to realize over the last year; that he was but a child once too.

    It's been a year since Starkiller and Kylo looses a duel to Rey. She imprisons him and Hux; intending to give them a Gray Jedi education in conflict resolution and relationship dynamics.

    Summary

    -Previously titled "Counting the days, hoping for you to stay"-

    He immediately felt the sun and the uneven ground. Looking around, the man could tell that it was still pretty early in the morning, the sun barely peeking from the horizon, a horizon that offered nothing more than endless dunes of sand and junk, whole ships completely destroyed, buried or scavenged to their skeletons, and no civilization, or at least, none at plain sight.

    This was…

    “Jakku” He breathed out.

    [Or, the story where Finn escapes by himself sometime before the canon we know, but landing on Jakku anyways.]

    Summary

    It's been months since she last closed her side of the connection but that wasn't supposed to matter because she has a new family now. She's been working with them to rebuild, pushing harder in training, and exploring the Jedi text...wasn't having a family supposed to make everything right? Wasn't she supposed to stop feeling the sting of loneliness?

    How was Rey to know that giving into it one last time for a good-bye would set her on the path to choosing a way home?
