    Summary

    Not long after arriving in the States on a student visa, looking to flee her grim childhood, Rey's found a passion bigger than what brought her to college in the first place: playing lead guitar in a rock band with her best friends. Naturally, the local college rock band scene is abuzz with interest when Rebel Scum is asked to open for the critically acclaimed noise-band-on-the-rise STARKILLER.

    Rey and her bandmates are all nerves, hoping to be land an indie record deal, while avoiding the ire of STARKILLER's front-man: a notoriously unfriendly tour-de-force drummer who goes by the stage name of Kylo Ren.

    Luckily for Rey, she doesn't scare easily.

    Summary

    "Overall," she tells him, "moody existentialism doesn't quite seem like the right tone for what is essentially a swashbuckler."

    He manages a curt nod. "I know many critics who would agree with you."

    "Then they'll probably also join me in bemoaning the fact that you killed off your protagonist," she chides.

    "It comes with the job, unfortunately."

    "What— people taking issue with your narrative choices?"

    "No." He flashes a self-deprecating smirk. "Killing your darlings."

    Ben Solo has a problem with sex. He’s addicted to his power over women, to the dominance and control. He’s very good at it and at using sex to avoid real connection and emotional vulnerability.

    Dr. Rey Niima knows this because she’s the one treating him.

    Or, “Erotized transference in the male patient-female therapist dyad.“

    “I miss you.” She whispered.

    His smile never faltered and he extended one of his bloody, broken hands, “I’m right here, nothing to miss. I’ll always be right here.”
