    Summary

    Rey Jones’ goal in life is to collect her paycheck while not doing more than the strict minimum at work. She doesn’t mind occasionally going out with her coworkers in the process; it doesn’t happen too often, and most of them are pretty okay people.

    Ben Solo, however, is a colleague she’ll never get to know even remotely, as he always declines his coworkers’ invitations.

    Susmita Warsi, meanwhile, thinks that if Rey Jones were to ask him out personally, Ben Solo would make an exception.

    Summary

    “…so, no, Ben Solo, unless you want to marry me, there’s nothing—NOTHING—you can do to help my situation!” Rey screamed from the top of her lungs.

    She turned roughly away when she felt a stray tear roll down her cheek. God damn it. It was so mortifying. Of all the people in San Francisco she could break down in front of, it had to be Ben-fucking-Solo. She took a few steps backwards, intending to spin around and run away before she could embarrass herself any further, but a large hand wrapped around her wrist before she could.

    “Wait.”

    UK borne Rey Unkar thought she finally found a home in Silicon Valley: she has close friends that love her, a great career at Resistance Labs, a vacation to Puerto Rico in the plans, and even an online friend who she can nerd out with on all things C++. Then, her H-1B extension gets denied and she has 10 days before she is legally required to leave the U.S.

    Summary

    One night when she felt particularly sorry for herself, Rey signed up on the dating service, figuring somewhere in the galaxy there was someone who wouldn’t find her repulsive. Or terrifying. Or whatever was wrong with her.
    This, then, must be the universe laughing at her.
