On the day her mother died she felt the pull of the Force.
How fitting that when the Force awoke within her, it was not the pure serenity of Dawn, but the ravenous maw of Night.
The knowledge was there, within her grasp, just waiting for her call.
When the Dark called to her, it was with one goal in mind that she took a leap--revenge
Some time after the events of the Last Jedi, Kylo Ren and Rey abandon the conflict to make a life for themselves. However, when the war concludes, the couple are found and tried for their crimes--Kylo as a war criminal, and Rey as an accomplice. Kylo is swiftly executed, and Rey sentenced to life.
Sixteen years later, their daughter feels the pull of the Force for the first time, and with it, the knowledge of time travel. She travels to the past
to fuck things upwith her own agenda.

"I promise you will love her. She's funny, smart, absolutely gorgeous--Just one date is all I am asking."
"What has gotten into you all of a sudden. Is this girl on the run from ICE or something?"
"Armie asked me to marry him."
Ben felt his world collapsing. His mild amusement long forgotten under the weight of a thousand unspoken words, missed opportunities, and imagined confessions.
Rose's voice seemed to come from far away. "Ben? Aren't you going to say anything?"
Ben swallowed, forced his throat to produce sounds other than screaming, or worse, a sob. Oddly, when his mouth felt capable of speech, it was a faint rasp, no hint of the tempest which roiled within. "Congratulations. You deserve to be happy."
Ben, Rose and Hux grew up together. Ben loves Rose, but Rose and Hux are together. After Rose and Hux become engaged, Rose tries to set Ben up with her friend Rey. He reluctantly agrees to go on a date.
The argument devolved, as it always did between them, along the usual refrain.
"I am older!"
"But I was conceived sooner," Rey countered smugly, waggling her eyebrows with a shit-eating grin.
An exaggerated vomiting sound met this pronouncement. "I did not need to imagine Uncle Luke having sex."
"No one said you had to."
Ben and Rey are cousins born on the same day, and have been inseparable ever since, including attending the new Jedi Academy together.
