    Summary

    Rey picked up her first violin at eleven, finding a mentor in conductor and former-violinist Luke Skywalker. With the First Chair up for grabs, Rey is thrust into the spotlight as the youngest violinist to take First Chair in the NY Pops.

    But Kylo Ren - former violinist, former NY Pops cellist, formerly Ben Solo child prodigy - may take issue with Rey Nobody sitting in his grandfather's chair.

    In other words, Orchestra AU. The Force is music, but like, really good music. Ben and Rey are both child prodigies.

    Summary

    Ben Solo is the Keeper of Death, Master of Dreams, and the anointed Ruler of All that Dies.
    Rey of Jakku is very, very lost.
    ---------------------------
    He sits forward in the chair. “Death isn’t a reversible situation.”
    “Ah,” she says, crawling to the end of the bed. “But I’m not dead. Not really.”
    Ben shakes his head. “What matters is that you’re here. In death's kingdom. Death isn't based on mere corporeal limitations, and anyway you can’t just leave. That's the whole point.”
    “Then I need to speak with him,” she says, an edge to her voice.
    “With who?”
    “The keeper. The king of the dead.”
    Ben blinks. He'd all but forgotten the title.

    Summary

    Rey sets her gin down on the mahogany desk and stares at Ben.
    "You want to bring me to Millennium Island? You've gone mad. Your old money friends would chase me out with pitchforks before I ever managed to catch your art thief. Which would be highly unlikely to begin with, given that I have no plausible reason for being there. The game would be up the minute I arrived."
    Ben leans back in his arm chair, his eyes hooded, and takes a long drag on his cigarette.
    "Not if you agreed to marry me."

    Summary

    She comes over the following Friday morning, wearing a pencil skirt and looking frazzled but happy. She stands on the porch and doesn’t appear to want to come in.
    “Can’t stay. Debate approaching, you know it. But I made this for you.”
    She drops a Tupperware in his hands, pushes up on her toes to kiss him on the cheek, and then runs down his gravel driveway and ducks back into her Uber.
    He waits until the car has turned around the corner to take off the lid, finding a small square cheesecake with some raspberries wedged inside the corners. He eats it sitting on his doorstep, sharing it with his neighbor’s obese cat, who will take up visiting him every morning in the vain hope of a repeat.
    It’s maybe a little too sweet for Ben, but by the last bite it has grown on him.
