    Summary

    In the end, she has to hand it to him— he'd always been an expert in taking her by surprise, and it would appear that he's chosen not to shake the habit even in death.

    "Rey Skywalker?" There's a vaguely sardonic twist to the corner of his mouth. "Does that make you my cousin now?"

    "It seemed like a fitting tribute," she says in wooden tones. Be it dream or vision, she might as well play along— draw this out until reality comes crashing back. Who knows when he'll come to her again as solid and as vibrant as this?

    "I see." Suddenly he's leaning into her, their faces so close together. "Tell me," he murmurs, his lips almost brushing against hers, "have you ever heard of the term kissing cousins?"

    She registers the smell of alcohol on his breath at the same time that his eyes flutter shut and he slumps face-down into her lap, snoring softly. You're alive, is all she can think at first, staring down at his head of lush black hair.

    Ben Solo is alive.

    Alive and very, very drunk.

    Summary

    And just when she was getting some serious attention from the teachers at the start of the last, pivotal year of school, he came along with his effortless perfection. She hated him.

    Right up until she met him, that is.

    ----------

    The flowers that bedeck her skin don’t lie—ballet dancer Rey is in love with her partner, Ben. But the years go by and his skin stays resolutely, devastatingly blank.

    Summary

    I was asked in the RFR Book Club 20 Questions how I would have ended Rise of Skywalker. While I didn't sit and piece together all the complexities that would be involved, I knew one thing had to happen and how. The rest is just how I would have written it. We start off at the kiss that gripped the hearts of all those who loved Ben and Rey...

    At least, that’s what she tells herself.

    Summary

    Ben was shitty at house-hunting and he knew it.

    His realtor knew it too, and her patience for his shrugs and general lack of preference was wearing thin. No matter how hard he tried, Ben could not bring himself to care about wainscoting. Or the state of fascia. Or the word fascia, as it ultimately reminded him of something that should be done in a spa.

    --

    In which Ben buys a house with a familiar ghost in the attic.
