    Summary

    The First Order has fallen, a mere few hours ago. Rey knows that because she was there, fighting her way through the halls to the inevitable showdown between her and the Supreme Leader. Adrenaline pumping in her veins, his year-old betrayal fresh on her mind; she had been more than ready to take him on, lightsaber already drawn and pulsing a deep yellow as she cut her way through the stormtroopers who had not defected.

    She was ready. To hurt him, to finish him, to do whatever they were cascading towards.

    ...Instead, she kidnaps him.

    Welcome to the canon divergent angst Star Freighter!

    Summary

    After Crait, Rey retreats to Jakku to grapple with her past... and her unwelcome attraction to Kylo Ren.

    --

    Kylo Ren was a monster. A murderer. So why couldn’t she stop thinking about him?

    Rey was already a bad Jedi, so in the dark of the AT-AT that had sheltered her during her vulnerable years, she gave in to the allure of the fantasy. Kylo Ren’s tall frame and big hands, his dark hair and hungry eyes. His desperation as he’d said “Please.” The sheer size of him, combined with the peek at his vulnerabilities she’d gotten from this strange, antagonistic Force bond.

    As if she’d summoned him, his consciousness brushed against her own, dark and tempting.

    You hate me, he said in her mind.

    There wasn’t a word to encompass how she felt about him. Yes, she agreed, ignoring the twinge of guilt.

    Summary

    “A year from now, no matter what happens, I’ll meet you here, at the place where we first met.”

    Months after a painful breakup, Rey finds herself on American Airlines Flight 2187, nonstop from New York to Honolulu, on her way to the islands where she and her boyfriend had first met, fully prepared for a week’s solo tumble in the Pacific like the strong, empowered, badass single lady she is.

    Until she boards the fully-booked flight and finds her seat in 4B.

    And recognizes a painfully familiar face in 4A.

    Summary

    Mazal Tov - The expression comes from the Mishnaic Hebrew mazzāl, meaning "constellation" or "destiny". Borrowed from Yiddish מזל־טובֿ (mazl tov), from Hebrew מַזָּל (mazál, “star, constellation; fate, luck”), from Akkadian (manzaltu [UD.DA]) + Hebrew טוֹב (tov, “good”); literally “good stars, good luck.

    Summary

    Someone keeps beating all of Ben’s pinball high scores, someone who puts their initials in as REY. This really shouldn’t bother him so much, he’s got his PhD dissertation to work on and the rest of summer to enjoy, not to mention he’s 30 and getting worked up over arcade games...

    Rey Jackson is new in town, a med school resident, who’s just ecstatic to find an arcade full of vintage pinball machines. She’s got no idea that anybody is actually paying attention to her new high scores.
