    Summary

    From the blazing heat of Jerusalem to the wind of the Scottish Cheviot Hills, Rey has followed Master Luke over an ocean. He has promised her the gift of reading, but occupied with border skirmishes, she has largely been left to sew and brood.

    Restless one morning, she ignores Master Luke's instructions and leaves the castle to explore. Once in Carterhaugh woods, she incurs a debt to a figure trapped between two worlds; although she doesn't know it yet, he is running out of time, and she may be the only one able to bring him back.

    Summary

    Rey drifts her hand up to his face. Her thumb brushes the scar bisecting it.

    “Beautiful,” she whispers, almost to herself, and Ben realises he is lost; tumbling away to infinity with only this girl and their sins.

    ---


    In which Ben, the reluctant Duke of Alderaan, cannot get the clever, beautiful, opinionated governess out of his head.

    Summary

    “The past is messier than it looks in the history books. The story we tell looking backward already has an ending. All we have to do is connect the dots in a way that leads up to it. The present has no ending. The story is up for grabs.”
    ~Pisces Horoscope for October 2, 2018


    Rey and Ben Solo time-travel after the events of TLJ to the prequel era.

    Summary

    He looks as she would have imagined him the day after she last saw him.

    He looks as she would have imagined him every day since.

    He looks alive.

    Gone are the battered abrasions on his face and the tatters in his clothes; he wears the same loose tunic that he’d donned that day. The day he’d joined her. The day he’d put away Kylo Ren.

    The day he’d found Ben Solo.

    In which no one is ever really gone.

    Summary

    “I— I’ll do anything,” Rey blurts, feeling desperation take over belligerence. “Don’t let him die.”

    “There’s nothing you can offer.” Kylo's face softens into something that looks almost like pity. Rey thinks she likes that even less than his anger.

    Technically, he’s right. She’s already agreed to stay on this Destroyer, to be taught, to work under his tutelage. But this is Finn. Her first friend. The one who came back for her when no one else had.

    And Rey has noticed the way that Kylo watches her sometimes, when he thinks that she doesn't see. The way that he blatantly won't look at her when she's recently out of the 'fresher, or the way that he scrambled to cover her with his cloak when her shirt was once torn during a training exercise. “That’s not true,” she says, hands starting to shake. She still has one final card to play.
