    Summary

    “You like my work?” Darcy said, feeling herself go numb. Ever since he’d escaped that hospital, Crossbones had been known as a mercenary. Steve had hunted for him occasionally, but they’d never managed to catch him. The Snap had been advantageous to him, probably. He was definitely the kind of asshole who thought “chaos is a ladder” was a mission statement. Whenever he was mentioned on the news, it was in comparison to infamous mobsters and crime lords: Al Capone, El Chapo, various New York mafia.

    “So, now we’re going to work together. Or you’re going to work for me. Lots of people do,” he said, smiling again. “I have a wide circle of influence.”

    Summary

    “It happened like this,” his mother inevitably began, her face that odd mix of unease and annoyance after decades of telling the story over and over again. The next sentence always seemed to shift. “My parents bought a house, and it all went to hell.” 

    Or:

    “It happened like this: my father had a brain tumor, and he went after my mother with a knife.”

    Or, with a drink in her hand and several others under her belt:

    “It happened like this: hospitality really will fuck you over.”

    Or, on her deathbed:

    “It happened like this.” Her face thin, her expression earnest. “The original owner cursed the house.” Her hand had folded around Ben’s own, squeezing with unexpected force. “Don’t go back, darling boy.”

    In which Ben Solo returns to Mustafar, North Carolina, to tear the past to the ground.

    Summary

    Who understands Alphas, anyway; they’re mysteries, wrapped in enigmas, dusted with hormones and deep-fried in a vat of unquenchable rage.

    And Ben, he’s a classic, textbook example. Rey doesn’t need his intensity in her life. Rey was quite happy to steer clear of him, as long as he wants to be like… well, like that.

    And he’d been like that ever since she hired on. Always testy around her, always scowling, stomping, difficult. But he produced excellent code, so… maybe management was sympathetic.

    Then again, maybe he just had someone’s incriminating photographs, and was holding them over their heads, who knew.

    OR: Ben Solo: Wunderkind developer, office Alpha, noted cantankerous asshole, gets stuck in an elevator with Rey Johnson: New hire, ray of literal sunshine, progressive Omega who seriously does not have time for this. Hilarity / Drama ensues.
