    Summary

    (Hiraeth (Welsh) – a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for lost places of your past.)

    The Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s: welcome to hell.

    As Rey grows up in a country which officially isn't at war, even though its consequences are felt everywhere, she forms a strong bond with Kylo, an odd young man whose personal involvement in the conflict may run deeper than it seems. Years go by, the war rages on and the political plots thicken, and Rey must learn the difference between idealism and doing the right thing, discovering the price of personal happiness.

    Also known as "what happens when you take the Star Wars plot and put it in a real place, in a real time, in a real war." Comes with lots of swearing, awkward flirting, old characters in new roles, angst, feels, drama, fluff, all-round Slavic shenanigans, and references to some pretty cool music.

    Summary

    All Rey Johnson wanted was solitude. A place to go where she could escape from the daily stressors and mayhem of her job. A place where she could enjoy some peace and some quiet. Her mentor Luke Skywalker's small cabin up north seemed like the ideal place to do just that. A week of seclusion was just what she needed.

    And then Ben Solo arrived.

    Summary

    “You need a teacher but so do I,” he conceded, running a hand through his hair. “I am amending my former offer. We become partners. I teach you and you teach me. Equal parts, give and take.”

    “On one condition. Our partnership remains purely professional.”

    His lips quirked slightly and he arched an eyebrow at her. “If that’s what you want.”

    “It is."

    “Then I promise to keep things strictly professional,” Kylo agreed as he extended his hand towards her to shake on it. “Until you stop lying to yourself about what it is you really want.”

    International hitman Kylo Ren meets his match when he goes after the same contract as Rey Niima. A Reylo John Wick AU.
