    Summary

    In the end, she has to hand it to him— he'd always been an expert in taking her by surprise, and it would appear that he's chosen not to shake the habit even in death.

    "Rey Skywalker?" There's a vaguely sardonic twist to the corner of his mouth. "Does that make you my cousin now?"

    "It seemed like a fitting tribute," she says in wooden tones. Be it dream or vision, she might as well play along— draw this out until reality comes crashing back. Who knows when he'll come to her again as solid and as vibrant as this?

    "I see." Suddenly he's leaning into her, their faces so close together. "Tell me," he murmurs, his lips almost brushing against hers, "have you ever heard of the term kissing cousins?"

    She registers the smell of alcohol on his breath at the same time that his eyes flutter shut and he slumps face-down into her lap, snoring softly. You're alive, is all she can think at first, staring down at his head of lush black hair.

    Ben Solo is alive.

    Alive and very, very drunk.

    Summary

    A cynical inner voice told him that of course she was flirting; he was wearing an Italian suit and a watch that cost three hundred thousand dollars, give or take. But her profile was silhouetted against the Eiffel Tower and Jacques Brel was playing on the speakers, and so his heart skipped a beat.

    Fucking Paris.

     

    Or: One summer night in the City of Love, a drunken wager is turned on its head and Ben Solo makes the biggest mistake of his life.

    Summary

    "It was a mistake to bring Tristan with us," Kylo muttered. "He is too hotheaded, too eager to follow his own whims—"

    "Reminds you of someone, doesn't it?" Rey quipped, burying her face in his chest.

    Kylo's hand slid downwards and pinched her backside in admonishment. Rey giggled against the front of his black tunic.

    "Atta," said a haughty voice from the top of the ship's ramp, "if you're quite finished groping my mom, there's a communique from the Hapes Cluster waiting on the dashboard."

     

    A mini-adventure set fifteen years after the events of landscape with a blur of conquerors.

    Summary

    "While I share your contempt for this situation in which we find ourselves, do not mistake it as apathy," he hissed through gritted teeth, dark eyes burning. "I hardly expect your disposition to sweeten, but I will be damned if I allow my future Empress to behave in a manner that reflects poorly on me and on the First Order!"

    "If you allow?" She wrenched her arm out of his viselike grasp, batting his hand away for good measure. "I don't belong to you. I don't belong to anyone."

    "That might have been the case back when you were a scavenger on that pitiful scrap heap of a planet, but now?" His sardonic gaze flickered over her silk robes and the jewels woven through her elaborate braids. "Now you are the Chume'da, and the Chume'da belongs to her people. Their fate is entirely in your hands. Should you cross the line, it is they who will suffer for it. Am I making myself clear?"

    "I hate you," she said bitterly.

    He sneered at her. "See? Already you are acclimatizing so well to married life."

    Summary

    "So let me get this straight," he says. "You're a dryad."

    "Quite so," she cheerfully replies.

    "Like an actual—" His hand rises to make a feeble gesture at the towering elms that surround them— "tree-dwelling, speaks-with-animals, has-magical-powers, frolics-through-the-woods-in-orgiastic-pagan-frenzy dryad?"

    She wrinkles her delicately freckled nose. "Well, I don't know about orgiastic frenzy, that's really more of a maenad type of deal."

    He looks her up and down, taking in her pretty face and her slender figure in the skimpy white dress.

    "Too bad," he mumbles.

    Summary

    "You look like a drowned puppy," she growls, trying to ignore the way his wet clothes cling to every inch of his muscular form, or how a stray droplet of water beads tantalizingly along his elegant jawline.

    He smirks. "If you're seeking to distract me with your powers of seduction, I regret to inform you that they leave much to be desired—"

    She knees him in the stomach.

    Summary

    The First Order does not exist, what is dead stays dead, and they grow up together at Luke's Jedi Academy.

    Or: The one where everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.

    (Then again, it's Ben and Rey, so maybe things hurt a little.)

    Summary

    There is something about watching Rey put her mind to task. Ben can't put a name to this something, exactly— all he knows is that it fascinates him like nothing else has in a long, long time.

    "Dr. Solo?" She glances over at him. "What do you think?"

    I think I'm doomed, he wants to say but doesn't. I think the curse of the pharaohs has nothing on you. I think you are my Egypt.

    Summary

    Every girl is entitled to the mistake. That one colossal fuck-up that permanently alters the terrain of who you are. You'll either learn from it or you won't, so might as well have the time of your life.

    Rey breathes in the scent of the flowers and the electricity that charges the space between her and Ben, and she decides that this might as well be it.

    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

    "I remember everything!" he snarls, loud enough to make her flinch. "How you move— the way you breathe—" His words hitch on a strangled half-sob; he stares at her like a man caught in a waking dream as he skims the line of her jaw with his knuckles, stopping to touch the pad of his thumb to her bottom lip. "How your eyes met mine in the starlight," he continues through a broken, haunted rasp of a voice, "and I felt like the look on your face."

    Or: What is alive must heal. What cannot heal must endure.

    Summary

    "Who knows?" Luke darted a faint smile at Ben and Rey as they stewed in silence and disbelief. "The two of you might even learn to get along. Right, Leia?"

    "Like a house on fire," the General deadpanned. "Complete with screams, flames, and people running for safety."

    "Indeed." Luke's blue eyes twinkled. "There may be no survivors."

    Summary

    Coded on a secondhand datapad in a run-down motel room in Mos Eisley, deleted and never sent: Everything about us was a whirlwind.

    Written on a scrap of durasheet in a Tion Cluster outpost, the words fading after a while into air and ghosts: You shouldn't have forgiven me for any of it.

    Scraped into the bark of an oak tree on the Argazdan homeworld: You won't believe the dreams I have about you.

    Summary

    "This ship," he declares firmly, "is a heap of junk."

    "You're a heap of junk," she retorts, hip-checking him on the way out.

    There is refuge even here, in their little games. He can't remember precisely when it started. It crept up on him like salvation, like forgiveness, like dawn seeping through.
