    Summary

    “Everything in your life up until now has been a lie.”
    “Are you really my father?”
    “Yes.”
    “Where is my mother?”
    “In a cell where she belongs.”
    “Can I see her?”
    “No. It’s better this way for you. And . . . for me.”

    Dark meets Light years later and sparks fly. Again. Because if you’re a Skywalker, history repeats itself. Emperor Kylo Ren now rules the galaxy and that's far harder than he thought it would be. This story is the continuation of my Dark AU fic Ghosts of the Past. Reading the prior story is necessary to understand this fic. As always, I write the Sith side of the story.

    Summary

    "Where are we?" she demanded, glowering at him with such ferocity that he was mildly surprised that the skin didn't shrivel off his bones.

    "Varykino," he replied. "My grandmother's estate in the Lake Country."

    "Naboo?" she snarled. "You knocked me out and dragged me to Naboo?"

    "You left me no choice." And, because he apparently had zero self-preservation instinct, "Although it is gratifying to know that you are in possession of a temper, after all, Madame Jedi."

    Her arm lashed out and he braced himself for more pain but, instead, she merely summoned her lightsaber from his belt and into her palm. "This is abduction, Senator."

    Summary

    A cruel betrayal has since turned Lord Ren into one of London's most notorious rakes. Contenting himself to a life of debauchery, the Earl of Alderaan has long been viewed by marriageable society as a lost cause. Yet a chance encounter with an orphaned pickpocket proves that love may be found in the most unexpected of places, and that it is never too late to repair a broken heart.

    [excerpt]:
    "She looks smart and quick, Ren. If anyone could do it, I would bet on you."

    Ren laughed, the sound of it slightly harsh and foreign. "What, you would have me teach her how to be a scullery maid?"

    Hux shook his head. "Of course not. Perhaps you could introduce her to the ways of the gentry. Work to improve her manner and her dress. With your guidance, and the resources at your disposal, I wouldn't be surprised if you could transform this pickpocket into a lady."

    Ren snorted. "Yes. She is the model of a docile, educated and refined woman."

    "You have no desire to bed her. Perhaps an interaction with the fairer sex without such distractions would make you appreciate them in a different manner."

    Hux, ever the strategist, dared him with a gleam in his eyes. "Unless you're not up to the challenge."

    Summary

    Ren had heard all the warnings. Taken all the relevant classes. Been through all the background checks. It was part and parcel of becoming a teacher apparently.

    He'd sat at the back of the classroom, trying not to roll his eyes, as a woman with all the charm of a serial killer droned on about codes of conduct, red flags and how temptation could destroy the most promising career. Teenagers were to be treated like a different species if Ren or any of his fellow teachers were to maintain a happy life.

    He'd been twenty-four, hot on the heels of pursuing a Masters degree in English and fresh out of his anger management courses at the insistence of his mother. He felt calm and confident. Almost cocky. The idea that he would piss away his entire life for the sake of some doe-eyed teenager twirling her hair was almost laughable.

    Six years later, he would be wiser. Six years later, he would find out temptation weren't short skirts and batted eyelashes. It was in the form of hazel eyes, an eager mind and a smile that could soothe the ice burn on even Ren's soul.
