    Summary

    Eighteen year old, Rey is doing everything she can to make it on her own. School, two jobs. Adult responsibilities that she shouldn't have to deal with.

    She does not have the time or energy to deal with distractions.

    When a strange man barges into her life, bloody and beaten, what is she supposed to do? Let him die in the street?

    This isn't going to go the way you think.

    Summary


    Moodboard by sunshineflying

    The year is 2027.

    A series of cyberattacks have rocked America and the shadowy hacker behind them--The Professor--has finally been captured by the FBI. She brings a dire warning about the rise of a potential Superintelligence at Hux Industries--an AI that might end civilization as we know it.

    Rey “The Professor” Niima--has been on the wrong side of the law her entire life and she has no intentions of helping the very people who’ve locked her away.

    Special Agent Ben Solo knows better than to trust a terrorist like The Professor, but if he wants to prevent a global catastrophe he has no choice.

    The countdown to disaster is on and Ben and Rey must work together to save everything they love.

    Summary

    “Seems to me that Ben just needs exposure to the workings of a garage. I mean, your previous employer dealt with…” The COO pointed at Ben, looking for an answer.

    Ben cleared his throat, surprised anyone was letting him get a word in. “Um, stocks and bonds.”

    “Stocks and bonds.” Ackbar leaned back and rolled his eyes. “No wonder the kid knows nothing about what we do.”

    “You’re right,” said Han. He paused, thinking for a long moment, and then turned to look directly at his son. “Hey Ben, you ever seen that show Undercover Boss?”

    Ben had a bad feeling about this.

     

    In which Ben is forced to work undercover at one of his dad's shops and meets a lovely mechanic named Rey.

    Summary

    The prompt: After Ben's death, Rey goes mad and turns to the dark side. Only Ben's not dead anymore.

    -----------------------

    He darts forward and folds her heaving shoulders within his embrace. Her tears soak his chest. But the bond—the bond clears and surges open like shared breath. Like a wave of light cresting over an undertow of dark. The push and pull of life coursing between them. He feels whole again. Oh, the relief.

    “Rey,” he murmurs into her hair. It’s grungy and snarled and he couldn’t care less. “Rey. Sweetheart. Whatever is wrong in the worlds can be made right so long as we have each other.”

    Summary

    Ben Solo is a well-known pastry chef in Las Vegas but he quits after receiving word that his grandmother had bequeathed her beloved bakery and homestead in his name. As part of the stipulation for him to inherit, he'll have to run the bakery and restore the farmhouse. Of course he couldn't do all that alone so he posts an ad in the local community board. He has absolutely no idea that his new handyman housemate was in fact a woman.

    Sweet-toothed Rey is a scholarship student that needs cheap lodgings. She exchanges her skills as a handyman for a discount at the farmhouse that's being renovated. It's a pretty good deal too seeing as her housemate loved to bake. Who else would benefit from all those experimental desserts?

    Hilarity ensues as City Boy tries very hard to Countryside and not fall in love.
