    Summary

    Luke Skywalker wrote his sister a letter on his deathbed, revealing that his ward is the orphaned heir of a family long thought extinct - and politically powerful. That letter fell into the wrong hands, and the secret of Rey's heritage is secret no more. The Emperor has managed to unite the Kingdoms, but he is old, and his son is weak. Seeking to ensure his son's claim to his throne, he sends his most trusted captain to bring the girl - willing or not - to be his son's bride. Rey is taken from her far-flung home, and plunged into a world of court intrigue, arranged marriage, political rivals, and would-be assassins - the black knight her constant companion and bodyguard. But even he, her dark shadow and protector, she cannot know whether to trust...

    Summary

    “Fake girlfriend. What does that even mean?” Ben asks her.

    Rey rests a hand on his arm, feeling the muscles underneath his sleeve. “Babe,” she says, leaning close to him. “It means we pretend we’re madly in love. Think you can pull that off for your office pool?” Ben’s eyes flicker softly between each of hers and he swallows, his Adam’s apple bobbing in his throat.

    Summary

    “Who are you?” The man carrying the newspaper asked her, scrunching up his brow. He looked her up and down, completely befuddled. One by one, the other man, the doctor, and the stormy woman turned to look at her. They wore almost identical expressions of confusion. Rey blinked, speechlessly. The appropriate answer was "a waitress", or "a stranger," or even "a crazy, perpetually single woman who’s been hopelessly, inexplicably in love with your comatose son for weeks."

    Behind her, the nurse huffed, cocking her hip. As if it was obvious, she said, “She’s his fiancée.”

    Summary

    “That’ll scar.” Han stood behind him, nervously. He’d always been nervous around him, first, because he was a baby, and Han didn’t understand babies, and then, because he had the Force, and Han didn’t understand the Force. “Girls like scars.”

    “It’s not like it matters.” Ben looked out at the thousands of spires. “I’m going to be a Jedi.”

    Han grunted in sympathy, and then sat next to him, swinging his legs off the side of the tower. The urge to feel alive, to take risks and taste danger – that was what he’d inherited from his father. “Heard you got off the hook.”

    “Not exactly. Community service.”

    “Better than a detention block.” Han leaned back on his hands.

    Ben scoffed. “It’s asinine.”

    His father shifted, looking up at the stars, through the hazy, translucent atmosphere of Hosnian Prime. “What do they have you doing? Picking up orbit pollution, or something?”

    “Worse.” Ben snorted. “Teaching orphans to read and write Basic. On Jakku.”

    Han winced. “Only slightly better than a detention block.”

    Summary

    : The joy or happiness of reuniting with someone after a long separation.

    Six months ago, Ben Solo was removed from Rey's side and his uncle's Jedi Academy to take up his mother's mantle as Senator, and to act representative of the Resistance. He has already claimed the reputation of a troublemaker. After Han Solo requests Luke and Rey act as Ben's security intel at a ball in Coruscant, it is underneath the pressure of galactic politics that her world and his new world collide.

    Summary

    AU where Rey's Force abilities wake up a LOT sooner--when she's 6.

    The Organa-Solo family takes her in to live with them on Coruscant, eager to keep her and Ben hidden and safe from the dark forces that seek to corrupt their light. (Though they're a much tougher cookie to crack, when they have each other.)

    Essentially just a truck-load of Young!ReyBen fluff, that will eventually grow into ReyBen romance.

    monster
    noun mon·ster \ˈmän(t)-stər\
    : a strange or horrible imaginary creature
    : something that is extremely or unusually large
    : a powerful person or thing that cannot be controlled and that causes many problems
    -Source: Mirriam-Webster's Dictionary

    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."

    Summary

    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.

    (Based on the movie/musical "Anastasia")
    To Rey, he was merely a stranger who had the means to get her to Paris, the place that her necklace seems to be leading her. She doesn't know where she came from, or who calls her theirs-- but she's ready to learn.

    To Kylo, she was the means to a better life, the doppelganger of a princess he once served-- a princess who has been presumed dead for years.

    Summary

    Ben Solo, successful concert pianist, is roped into teaching a three week musical breakdown workshop. Due to either dumb luck or fate he stumbled upon a girl with more raw talent than he’s ever seen. The only problem is that no matter how hard he tries to unravel her, Ben can’t seem to solve the mystery that is Rey. Over time they begin to form a bond that helps him forget why he was worried about coming in the first place.
    --
    She was like something from a childhood dream, soft bronze skin dusted with freckles, hazel eyes that emoted with intensity, a slender frame that bobbed and bounced, all wrapped up in a brown sweater as she gave herself to the song, soul, mind and body. Brown hair was tied up into a messy bun at the very top of her head, many stray pieces resting against her neck and brushing along her cheeks and ears as she allowed the song to guide her body to the beat. Above all of her damning good looks was the way her fingers danced over the keys with the grace of a professional. He couldn’t decide which task held more of his focus, watching her fingers lay claim to the keys, or trying to decipher just how many different colors made up the flecks in her eyes.

    Fuck.

    Summary

    There's a piece of Jedi mythology, passed down from ancient times, that tells of a peculiarly nasty phenomenon: one singular, intact soul split in two by the Force. It's a story of a schism in the stars, a constellation cracked in half, a lifetime spent scouring the Universe in search of that elusive whole.
    But the Force is cruel and kind in turns; it gave Ben only one piece of his soul, but left the other, swaddled, at his feet.

    AKA my take on the "Ben and Rey grow up together!" trope with a soulmate/soulbond twist. Pretty much pure teeth-rotting fluff, lots of Ben being a lil mother hen etc. before they grow into a romantic relationship. Luke POV.

    Of course a fire would break out in Rey's apartment building the night of her biochem final — and of course she would end up running out into the sidewalk keyless in her pajamas, right next to the most obnoxious frat party in the world. At least it can't get any more embarrassing than this ... that is, until her TA Ben Solo shows up.

    One-shot, based on a Tumblr prompt.

    Summary

    She moves into the apartment beside his, with her flowers and her singing and her brisk optimism, and Ben Solo knows himself just well enough to realize that a person like him really shouldn't have anything to do with a person like her. His good friend Snoke, of course, has other plans, because he gets a certain enjoyment from watching Ben - Kylo Ren, rather, as he calls him - screw things up. Which Ben inevitably does: but that's not where he wants them to end, and maybe Rey doesn't either.
