    Summary

    “To the man God: O Great One, I have been sorely tried by my enemies and have been blasphemed and lied against. My good thoughts and my honest actions have been turned to bad actions and dishonest ideas. My home has been disrespected, my children have been cursed and ill-treated. My dear ones have been backbitten and their virtue questioned. O Man God, I beg that this I ask for my enemies shall come to pass…” - Curse-prayer, collected by Zora Neale Hurston

    “I am sure it was a woman who first prayed this curse.” - Alice Walker

    Scenes from the aftermath of a marriage.

    Or: Alexander and Eliza, the Reynolds Post, and everything that came after.

    Summary

    Valerie calls her an hour later.

    “Sally, what the hell?”

    “That bad, huh?”

    “Bad? Sally, it’s gold. I went from squirming in my seat to crying genuine tears. And that twist, making him a Greek god, it’s exactly what we’re looking for right now. How soon can you get me the next chapter?”

    ***

    In which Sally Jackson realizes by the time the new baby is eighteen, a semester of college will cost an arm and a leg. And those Fifty Shades of Grey books sure did make a lot of money.

    Summary

    As newly appointed Co-Generals of the Resistance, Poe and Finn go on a diplomatic mission to Passio Verak, a planet that was until recently under First Order rule. However what appears at first to be a purely ceremonial visit soon takes a more sinister turn. In the midst of fighting for their lives, Poe struggles with leadership, the lasting effects of the war and the messy reality of his feelings for Finn.

    (C-3PO hesitates and then, in a passable robotic simulation of a whisper, he says, “Not to question your judgement sirs, but perhaps it would be best not to give the impression that your marriage is in trouble? Palace gossip can be frightfully insidious.”

    “Our what now?” Poe says dumbly, blinking. Behind him he hears Finn make a strangled sort of noise.

    “Your marriage.” C-3PO says and then tuts. “Oh dear, you really didn’t read the manual on Verakian customs I provided, did you?”)

    Summary

    Of all the former Rebellion bases the Resistance had repurposed as they gathered supplies and grew their numbers in the month after Crait, Hoth’s base was—by far—Rey's least favorite. As it turned out, she did not particularly enjoy being cold.

    That was the worst thing about being on the frozen planet, Rey decided. Well, that and the incredibly weird dreams she’d been having in the two weeks since they had made Hoth their temporary home.

    “So…what brings you to the mess hall at this ungodly hour? It can’t be for the caf.” Poe asked, nodding at her untouched beverage.

    “I…” She began, trying to figure out how to explain the dream that had woken her up that night—the most vivid one that she’d had since she had first stepped foot on Hoth.

    She wasn’t even sure whether or not she could explain her dream.

     

    For the Damerey Daily 2020 prompt: "They’re fascinating. It’s like being inside a dream or something. There’s truth but no logic."
