    Summary

    The year is 1997. The man formerly known as Kyril Ren, having long escaped the clutches of the Solntsevskaya Bratva and settled into domestic life with his love, Irena, turns his eyes towards the future with excitement — and doubt.

    The year is ABY 37. The man who calls himself Kylo Ren doubts everything — himself most of all.

    As it turns out, the Force has a funny way of dealing with doubt.

    Summary

    She looks up at him. His face is too soft, too open. Ready for her to reject him, call him one of the ugly names people reserve for alphas, to remind them of their place as primitive remnants of an old system that most people have evolved past, outcasts who have to be controlled. He’s already wounded without her having to wield the blade.

    “Please,” he says and reaches out a hand. She gasps and flinches away, though he was nowhere near touching her. “Please. I’m not—I wouldn’t. Don’t run. I promise—I would never hurt anyone.”


    A lonely young woman arrives at the cottage she inherited from her grandfather on a remote lake in northern Ontario, to find her neighbour is a rare Alpha, a relic of the old days when humans were ruled by their designation. Across a long hot summer, they connect over their shared history, and she finds that the past may not be as far away as she assumed.

    Summary

    Rey Jakku, a rising star in the galaxy of computer programmers, was happy at the Jedi Order. She never meant to capture the interest of Kylo Ren, best computer jockey in the world. She never meant to capture his interest. She never meant to wake up in his bed,utterly besotted with him.

    But she never expected to see him on the arm of Bazine Netal the very next day. Nor did she expect the FBI to show up at her door asking for her help. Kylo Ren was the long lost son of Leia Organa and they needed her to bring him back. Racing against the clock, arguing with her own heart, and her own treacherous past rising up to engulf her, Rey must choose what matters the most: her career or Kylo Ren.

    Summary

    "Outside of their rendezvous, the idea of being desperate to please someone made her skin crawl, but here? Here she could think of nothing she wanted more. All she wanted was to be manhandled so expertly by those big hands. To let someone else take control for a little while."

    OR:

    Rey likes to get dicked by her History teacher, who's hot as hell.

    Summary

    "What did the world do to you?" she asked him. "That you can't even smile without looking sad?"

    How could he tell her that he didn't even remember?

    He's never been anything to anyone. She's a stray dog someone took in and left for dead.

    They're nothing to them.

    Just cogs in that machine of a system that keeps turning. Pawns on a giant chess board, that's bigger than their two countries, soldiers in a never-ending game that has been going on, longer than the span of their lives. The players change, but the betrayal, the pain and the greed remains all the same. And in that game, they're pieces of scrap metal that can be melted and molded and broken, to serve any function, at any price, no matter how despicable, no matter how in-human. They can not tell you how their lips have been sewn shut by years of injustice. Fight the system, and you die. Talk, and you die. Think, and you die.

    But, the system has to collapse sometime. It is inevitable. The facade must drop.

    The question is...

    What, then, will rise from the abyss of the Empire?
