  1. Summary

    A series of ficlets with a bit more of a Brio twist on our favorite scenes, starting with the night Beth summons Rio with the pearls.

    What she didn’t know was that Rio thought she was the most beautiful thing he’d ever seen, like a living masterpiece carved of alabaster and fire, those brilliant aquamarine eyes flashing. It made him want to touch her—want to possess her—and he knew the impulse was as foolish as it was dangerous for a man like him.

    Summary

    The year is 1994. The Iron Curtain has come down, the oligarchs have begun their rise to power, and Kyril Ren, a powerful member of the infamous crime syndicate Solntsevskaya Bratva, has been given a job: hunt down an estranged uncle who has been snitching to the FBI.

    Irena, nicknamed Rey by her adoptive father Luke, is a Krav Maga instructor in New York who has finally been able to obtain her original birth certificate from Russia. Turns out she was born in a little village named Vershinino, but if she wants to know more than that… she’s going to have to go there herself.

     

    TL;DR: What up here's a Russian Mafia AU.

    Summary

    "While I share your contempt for this situation in which we find ourselves, do not mistake it as apathy," he hissed through gritted teeth, dark eyes burning. "I hardly expect your disposition to sweeten, but I will be damned if I allow my future Empress to behave in a manner that reflects poorly on me and on the First Order!"

    "If you allow?" She wrenched her arm out of his viselike grasp, batting his hand away for good measure. "I don't belong to you. I don't belong to anyone."

    "That might have been the case back when you were a scavenger on that pitiful scrap heap of a planet, but now?" His sardonic gaze flickered over her silk robes and the jewels woven through her elaborate braids. "Now you are the Chume'da, and the Chume'da belongs to her people. Their fate is entirely in your hands. Should you cross the line, it is they who will suffer for it. Am I making myself clear?"

    "I hate you," she said bitterly.

    He sneered at her. "See? Already you are acclimatizing so well to married life."
