    Summary

    Kylo has no way of knowing her most personal thoughts, no way of knowing about her attraction to him.

    She's sure of it.

    Which means he chose this, freely. Without influence from her own feelings. Sure, there was the time their hands touched in the hut, and a few brief moments of what Rey would best describe as tenderness, but never anything belying a deeper sense of wanting.

    He's grown to desire her, without any suggestion she might reciprocate.

    Summary

    This trip was not what Rey was expecting at all. When she and Finn had planned this trip, it didn’t include his girlfriend, his friend, his friend’s girlfriend and Ben Solo. It also wasn’t supposed to be spent in an old, damp English house that creaked at every step. Though the manor needed some repairs, it still had so character, especially when she discovers an old portrait in the basement that looks a lot like the man she despises upstairs. Through a strange turn of events, Rey finds her transporting from present day to the early 1800s, where Kylo Ren is lord of this manor and he sees her as a lovely maiden in distress.

    Summary

    “I don’t think pity is in my job description, Miss…?” He looks at her, taxing. (Of course he knows her name, he knows her firm too, even knows where and when she graduated - both because he did his homework and because she intrigues him a little bit - but he feels somewhat asshole-ish at the moment, so there it is.)

    “Humphrey,” she presses out of a clenched jaw. (Her friends call her Rey, he knows that, too, not that it matters.) “His pregnant wife died, the love of his life, you’d think that would make people cut him some slack...but you probably have never felt love in your entire miserable life so why do I even bother?”

    “Adorable,” he comments dryly, which only infuriates her more.
    “You’re literally the worst,” she says and sounds like a schoolgirl rather than a Harvard-trained attorney. “You’re like...the devil in an Armani suit.”

    Reylo Lawyers AU. Think Harvey Specter, just crank the asshole-meter to 3000.

    Wanting to get away from her life back home and start living one that she actually liked, Rey moves to Europe to join the Bologna University. What she didn't plan for was meeting professor Ben Solo and being intrigued about anything related to him. Will she follow the professor in an unknown journey or keep him at a safe distance and finish her studies without any distraction?

    Summary

    She scribbled his name. With how long it took, Ben half-expected to see something like dickhead on it later. After she'd finished, she gestured to the pick up counter.

    Ben hesitated. He glanced at her nameplate, which was slightly askew. Luckily, her name was still readable.

    "Thank you Rey."

    He caught the wide eyed look on her face as he turned away. Once at the counter, he glanced down at his wrist.

    A sort of coffee shop AU set in a universe where people have restrictions that allow them only 167 words a day. Ben has an easy time dealing with it. Rey, unsurprisingly, does not.
