    Summary

    "Well, well, well," Ben drawls once Rey joins him on the sidewalk in front of the bus, "don't you clean up nice, sweetheart."

    "You want to call me that again, Solo?" she says, smiling for the benefit of the journalists and crowd of supporters that have their eyes and lenses trained on the bus door, waiting for Leia to emerge. "You feeling lucky today?"

    Rey is a bright-eyed intern, Ben is an irritated data analyst, and how difficult can it be to get a legacy senator elected president? Apparently fucking impossible.

    Summary

    Someone is leaving lewd comments in the library “Suggestions” box.

    At first, Ben didn’t think anything of it. Undergrads are idiots. Notes saying things like "let me see your donger" are probably par for the course.

    Lately, though, the comments are getting harder to ignore.

    Summary

    “Rey,” he says. But what are the words that should follow this? It’s a mystery. Her name is enough.

    “Ben,” she responds, smiling. Willing him on.

    Ben finds courage in her eyes. “I’ve never wished for anything as much as I wish I could touch you right now,” he says so slowly, as if the words themselves were causing him pain.

    He knows he said the right thing when her eyes flutter and her mouth parts.

    “Oh, Ben,” she says breathlessly, “Say more.”

    +++

    Astronomer Dr. Ben Solo grew up with his head in the stars. He was alone but not always lonely.

    Until he met Miss Rey Jackson, grad student at the University of St. Mary's, London, his liaison on the Cassini Regio Project researching Saturn's moons Iapetus and Phoebe.

    For the first time in his life, Ben longed for something on his own planet.

    Summary

    Rey picked up her first violin at eleven, finding a mentor in conductor and former-violinist Luke Skywalker. With the First Chair up for grabs, Rey is thrust into the spotlight as the youngest violinist to take First Chair in the NY Pops.

    But Kylo Ren - former violinist, former NY Pops cellist, formerly Ben Solo child prodigy - may take issue with Rey Nobody sitting in his grandfather's chair.

    In other words, Orchestra AU. The Force is music, but like, really good music. Ben and Rey are both child prodigies.

    Summary

    In which Finn and Poe start various light bets on Kylo and Rey’s “relationship” after hooking them up on a date and Rey finds out, tells Kylo, as they both go on an epic mission to mess with Finn and Poe back. They skirt along the lines of what counts as tolerable office flirting and maybe something more.

    The goal is to prove Finn and Poe wrong — or right. Who knows.
