    A Beauty and the Beast pastiche

     

    [excerpt]:
    Snoke's sonorous voice filled the chamber, the edges of his gaping mouth crinkling with glee.

    "I am sure you have heard the stories, Kylo Ren. Of ancient Sith Magic, and the powers it can wield.  Of its ability to alter the environment, based on the perceptions of the mind. It stands to reason that the strongest and most emotional of perceptions are also the hardest ones to break.

    "Desire can be a powerful but capricious mistress. Despite your willful disobedience, I shall grant you what you seek. But know this..." Snoke's hand waved, and Kylo felt the tendrils of Dark Magic settle uncomfortably around him like an ill-fitting cloak.

    "The girl sees you as a monster. So a monster, you shall be."

    When Finn is captured during the Wild Hunt, the villagers meet with the Spirit Master of the Sluagh Sidhe to bargain for Finn's soul.

    [excerpt]:
    A primal instinct flooded through Kylo at the thought of possessing such innocence and beauty. Whether such want was the result of his Sidhe nature or a remnant of his human desires, he did not care. He took one step forward and then another until he stood, hovering over the girl.

    He stared into her eyes, his fingers brushing over her chin. He inhaled her scent, marveling at the hint of grass, and the clean softness of the earth.
