    Summary

    Bull tilted his face into the kiss. He reflexively pushed down the shake in his fingers, then had one of those moments of world-turned-upside-down dizziness as he realized he didn’t have to anymore. There was no one left here but the two of them and the Chargers, no Qun to be ultimately responsible to. It was the harder trick, figuring out when you didn’t have to lie.
      

    He let himself tremble, just a little.

    Summary

    It's one of the great ironies of Luke Skywalker's life, that as badly as he wanted to escape the dustball he was raised on, he keeps winding up in the desert. At least it's temporary this time. Get to Jakku, find the Sith artifact, get off Jakku.

    "How long have you been scavenging?"

    "A year and a half," Rey said, and Luke's heart broke.

    Misinterpreting his expression, she quickly added, "But I've got good eyes! I know the wastes just as well as people who have been doing this longer. And I'm not dumb enough to try to screw you over. You have a lightsaber. I don't want to be on your bad side." Rey opened her mouth to ask something, changed her mind and closed it again.

    "You can ask," Luke said, having some idea of what she was thinking.

    "Luke Skywalker?" she blurted out, a mix of admiration and confusion.

    Summary

    "What if there was?" Combeferre asks abruptly, when she's halfway to her feet.

    She stops and blinks at him. "Was what?"

    "Someone willing to marry you." There's a flush of pink on his cheeks that's enthralling, but his gaze doesn't waver.

    "Then I'd tell them no." Éponine snorts. "Anyone who wants to marry a strange woman sight-unseen is after something, and I've had my fill of being used."

    "Someone who's not a complete stranger, then. Someone you've shared a conversation with." He glances around them at the cafe, at the table between them, and clears his throat. "Shared a meal with. What would you say then?"

    Summary

    It starts like this: with Enjolras's father, drunk and desperate that his only daughter marry before she becomes a spinster, accosting a wealthy-looking stranger at the market and directing his attention to her.

    With a thoughtless boast, her father crying, "Look at her there in the sunlight, look at her hair, see how she turns straw into gold? Isn't she beautiful?", too loud and too bold for the crowded marketplace.

    With a knock at the door, some days later, and a man in the king's livery standing at attention on the other side, reading a decree, and the sudden sense that the world has dropped out from under Enjolras's feet.
