    Bookmarker's Notes

    Kind of the opposite of a slow burn. More like an explosion, subsequent inferno, and finally a life built together. Artist Kylo, who only wants to help, is a precious treasure and virgin. Engineer-cum-artist Armitage, with more issues than Vogue, doesn't know how to communicate and is determined to self sabotage. They are going to be fake-married for an inheritance.

    Featuring kinky ex Poe, ace bestie and PT Phasma, Millie the terror, Bala-Tik the barkeep, and a lot of caring and considerate sex. 10/10 would laugh and sob again.

    Summary

    Hux is the top diver in the world coming back for his third Olympic Games. However, this time he's bringing more baggage than just his equipment. His former partner, Ben Solo, is also competing with his new partner, and Hux's greatest rival, Poe Dameron.

    Hux needs to prove he's still the best in the world, but more than that he wants to prove to himself that he can move past Ben. However, Ben seems dead set on reminding him about the past at every turn.

    A fierce rivalry, bitter exes, one big temper, some tiny swim suits, and a medal on the line...

    Olympics AU. Kylo is actually Ben, but withheld that from Hux, who kept secrets of his own. Their "sham" marriage was never as fake as it was meant to be, but the two still split up. Diving against each other will be their first meeting since Kylo/Ben left to go back to America.

    This fic has so many feels it left me in a constant state of squee. Angst, smut, fluff, humor, and a happy ending.

    Summary

    Through the viewports, Kylo watches the planet turn itself inside out, disintegrating. They’re hovering in empty space out of Starkiller’s orbit, a safety precaution, and Hux is there on the bridge, too, just out of reach, directing the firing of the weapon. It’s beautiful, seeing him work like this—orchestrating destruction with a master’s touch. Kylo realizes, then, that he wishes Hux would turn to him, nod, acknowledge his presence or contribution. That he wishes Hux would notice him at all. The thought is small and sudden but it beats Kylo senseless, growing and growing.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Kylo will always be soft, and Hux pushes people away. Somehow they still seem meant for each other. An enemies-to-lovers fic set in canon, which takes place before and after TFA.

    Summary

    Kylo Ren is haunted by recent tragedy. He answers an ad posted by one Armitage Hux for a roommate, and he thinks a fresh start will help him begin to heal. He brings next to nothing with him from the past when he moves in.

    Or so he thinks.

    Down-and-out Kylo, still grieving his father after a terrible car accident, rents a room from Hux. They go from acquaintances to lovers very quickly and get along well. Only problem is the poltergeist.

    Summary

    A genocidal megalomaniac Emperor and a very slutty smuggler/occasional Resistance spy walk into a bar.

    Or: the one where Ben pulls a fast one on Hux and he spends the next year of his life relentlessly hunting Ben down in a blind rage, Ahab-style
