    Summary

    Rey Kenobi spends her days trying to focus on her classes, working at the on-campus cafe to pay off her crippling student debt, and hopefully beating irritating and entitled Ben Solo in a contest for a scholarship and writing job she's always dreamed of.

    But in her free time, she's KiraofJakku, an online writer and member of a Discord writing group, struggling to balance her college career and passion for fiction. When she finally works up the nerve to message her favorite author and fellow Discord member, KyloRen, an unlikely friendship blooms.

    Ben Solo just wants to write. Not important articles or essays to change the world and win him awards like his professor and uncle, Luke, but simple stories for people to enjoy, sci-fi and fantasy epics that get nominated for book club reads. Yet, since he was born, his path has been laid out for him, to follow in the footsteps of his uncle and mother.

    But when a kind and honest reader, KiraofJakku, randomly messages him, she opens up a passion and desire he never expected. For his writing, for making his own path in his life... for her.

    Summary

    “Me and Ben were…a long time ago. It’s nothing. Ben’s nothing. He’s just a guy.” Just a guy. Poe’s childhood friend; a lobbyist; someone who could run marathons in less than four hours. These were the labels she’d reduced Ben down to; boxes to compartmentalise him in, entirely separate from their relationship. The rest, all the myriad things he’d been—someone who made her laugh; the warmth on the other side of the bed; her best friend—those things, Rey had buried.

    Rey left Ben two years, three months, and sixteen days ago. But who's counting?

    Summary

    With their daughters now fully grown, Rey and Ben thought the parenting thing would be smooth sailing. After all Addie and Emery were sweet, intelligent, and driven young women with aspirations to make any parent proud.

    That is until their youngest refuses to leave the house much to Rey's concern, and their oldest has a serious older boyfriend much to Ben's dismay. Some good old fashion meddling and Skywalker family shenanigans should solve their problems. Little do Rey and Ben know their daughters are truly too much like them, to the point history begins to repeat itself.

    Summary

    Ben Solo wasn't liked around the office. He had outbursts of rage, and he was generally rather unpleasant, harsh, difficult to get along with. He seemed to despise others and to be disinterested in anything anyone talked to him about. Rey didn't like him very much, their few encounters had been difficult, some even shouting matches. To her eyes, he was spoiled, ungrateful of the privileges he’d been granted by life. He refused to join Resistance enterprise for a long time, working for Snoke instead, he was harsh with Leia and Han, hostile with Luke…
    It all changed two months before Christmas, when they entered Resistance enterprise headquarters to find Holdo disheveled, alone when Leia never missed a day, and she informed them that Ben Solo had almost succeeded in committing suicide the night before.
    Rey’s world tilted upside down.

    A Christmas story full of angst, but also hope, love, healing, forgiveness, and acceptance. And family, of course.

    Summary

    The break up had been an ugly one. But not as ugly as the 4-month radio silence that followed immediately after. That is, until Rey receives Leia’s annual Christmas invite. Rey confronts Ben about it.

    ---
    Based on the Modern AU Prompt where these two pretend to still be together in front of Ben's overly-attached family. Acting cute and sweet to each other only makes things harder for each of them, as it relives the happier moments of their relationship and questions the dynamics of what went wrong.

    So now what?

    (A curated playlist included for the Christmas music enthusiast!)
