    Summary

    Fresh off a panic attack, Rey takes in a self-plucking parrot with a dirty mouth.

    ~The parrot is crammed into the back corner of the supply store where the vents are loudest and the ceiling mildewed. He’s wearing a chipped plastic bite collar and less than a third of his dark feathers. 

    The rest are arrayed on the floor of the cage in a pitiful, dirty pile. 

    As she approaches he ducks away, shy. Trembling, hiding his face in the worn tarp that covers the cage. 

    “Are you a pretty bird?” she asks.~

    Summary

    "It’s when he smiles.

    She’s never seen it before, and it pauses her in mid-conversation with Finn.

    His lips—the ones that are always trembling or too red or too full—part and he has teeth. Of course he has teeth, but she’d never seen them. She tries to remember the forest. Maybe he had teeth then.

    But as one of the pilots tells a story, Rey watches across the mess hall as the rest of them laugh and snort their caf and wipe tears of laughter from their eyes—and Ben Solo smiles."

    In which defector Ben Solo is getting comfortable in the Resistance, and Rey realizes she likes to see him smile.

    Summary

    Cassian can honestly say that he hadn't imagined how he and Jyn might get engaged someday. He just didn't think they were there yet. But even if he'd imagined the weirdest scenario possible, he feels pretty confident in saying he never could have predicted the proposal would involve the phrase "insider trading".

    Summary

    All the myriad things he’d been—someone who made her laugh; the warmth on the other side of the bed; her best friend—those things, Rey had buried.


    Rey left Ben two years, three months, and sixteen days ago. But who's counting?
