    Words to replace said, except this actually helps

    I got pretty fed up with looking for words to replace said because they weren’t sorted in a way I could easily use/find them for the right time. So I did some myself.

    A nice reference list for those that can’t just think of what word they are looking for. But remember that using “said” isn’t a bad thing. “Said” is universal and versatile and each of these words have their own meaning, so it isn’t always interchangeable.

    but then again, its kind like putting a meat suit on and telling a shark not to eat you

    thedarkchocolatedandy

    We (men) are not fucking sharks!

    We are not rabid animals living off of pure instinct

    We are capable of rational thinking and understanding.

    Just because someone is cooking food doesn’t mean you’re entitled to eat it. 

    Just because a banker is counting money doesn’t mean you’re being given free money.

    Just because a person is naked doesn’t mean you’re entitled to fuck them. 

    You are not entitled to someone else’s body just because it’s exposed. 

    What is so fucking difficult about this concept?

    How can you not reblog something like this

    As a man I’m real fucking tired of the idea that I have no impulse control. We all have it, some of you jackasses just think you’re above it.

    FUCKING THIS???

    kylorenaissance

    “Who are you?” the old woman asks.

    “I’m Rey.”

    “Rey who?” she asks, oddly suspicious.

    Rey looks to the side, where she sees Luke and Leia materialize in the desert. They smile at her, and she smiles at them. “Rey Skywalker.”

    .

    Rey sits up, breathing hard. She looks around her with wild eyes, afraid, but her breathing returns to normal when she sees that she’s in her room. She looks beside her and breathes a sigh of relief when she sees her husband. 

    “Ben,” she whispers, draping her body over his. 

    “Mm?” he rumbles, slowly waking beneath her. 

    “I had the worst dream.”

    “Mm?” he asks again, but he’s more awake now, shifting to move her into his arms.

    “Right, so it was…around the time the First Order, you know…”

    “Tanked?”

    “Sure, but instead of tanking, you found Palpatine on some…Sith planet or something, I don’t know, and he just conveniently had this enormous military and thousands of followers just, you know, waiting, and he said he’d made you emperor, and you were going to kill him but you didn’t, for some reason.”

    “Hmm.”

    “So anyway, I had to find this…thing, I don’t know, and we kept running into each other and fighting, and then I stabbed you and then I felt bad so I brought you back or something, I don’t know, also your mother died–”

    “What?”

    “She gave her life force to you, or something.”

    “That’s not how the Force works.”

    “I know, it was a bad dream, so anyway, I ended up going to Palpatine because he was my grandfather, I guess, which…his son was only in his twenties or thirties or something, so you’re telling me someone fucked Palpatine when he was Emperor?”

    “Palpatine did not fuck,” Ben says firmly. “I know he didn’t. He just…no.”

    “Right? Anyway, so Palpatine wanted me to be his heir, and I had to kill him so I’d inherit his Sith powers and rule as empress, and then you came to save me, and that was nice, but we both…died? Wait, I died after killing Palpatine, then you brought me back, but the effort killed you, and then I wasn’t even sad! And I moved to Tatooine and took on the name Skywalker.”

    Ben breathes deeply. “That is…so offensive on so many levels.”

    “I know! As if I’d ever choose kriffing…Tatooine over…literally any other place. And become a Skywalker, even though Luke was a terrible mentor and I don’t need a…family name, or whatever.”

    “You don’t need one,” he agrees, pulling her closer. “But Solo suits you.”

    She smiles. “It does, doesn’t it?” She nuzzles his nose with hers, her anger at her dream forgotten. “It’s a good name.”

    “Rey Solo,” he murmurs, tucking her hair behind her ear.

    “Ben Solo,” she murmurs back, pressing her forehead to his.

    “Baby Solo,” he says, pressing his hand to her belly.

    “Baby Solo,” she adds, resting her hand on top of his. “What do you think, boy and girl? Boy and boy? Girl and girl? Children of indeterminate gender?”

    “We already have one of those.”

    “True,” she agrees, thinking of the little green child that’s fallen into their care. “But we can have more.” She nestles into his side. “I like Han, for a boy. Or Hanna, for a girl.”

    “Yeah,” he says quietly. “Me too.”

    It still pains him, even now. She kisses his collar, tracing the muscles in his chest. “Or we could always name one after my grandfather.”

    “Your grandfather…?”

    “You know, ol’ Grandfather Palps.”

    His lips quirk. “You know his first name was Sheev, right?”

    “Are you fucking kidding me?”

    “Sheev Solo.”

    “No, never mind, I take it back.”

    The pansexuality illustrated :)

    More animations will comes about those themes, it’s not a game of who have the best definition, it’s more about trying to explain it simply so people can understand it. It helps and that’s what l try to do. Everybody is valid! 

    Many other themes will come, will try to do as many as l can!

    To be continued ^^

    Y'all do realize the more you call trans kids “transtrenders” and that they’re “faking it” the more parents aren’t gonna support even Actually Real Dysphoric Trans People, right?

    bi-purpur

    i actually experienced this last summer.

    my mom is friends with this trans woman, who was really sweet and she was super cool, but then i tried to come out after my mom expressed how much she liked her trans friend and how amazing she is. i told my mom about my crippling chest dysphoria and how much i’d love to be called by he/him pronouns and my preferred name. i told her about how i’ve always felt this way and i’ve known since eighth grade.

    well the thing is, her friend is a transmed.

    my mom is an uninformed person on trans issues, because she didn’t really care about them until recently. she took resources from her transmed friend and it ruined my life. she went off about how i’m not really trans because i didn’t come out sooner, i have piercings, my hair is always a crazy color, i still like girly things, and my glasses are weird. she kept yelling about how i didn’t have dysphoria before, so i obviously have the wrong definition. she told me if i was trans it would’ve been diagnosed by my therapist already, and it was just a cult bandwagon phase. i was locked away from the outside world for a month.

    when my next year of high school rolled around, i was out as trans. my partner provided me with a binder and all was well. i came out to all my peers at the beginning and about halfway through the school year to my teachers. it was quiet, under the table. i told them my mom didn’t know and under our school guidelines, they were not allowed to tell my mom that sort of thing. well, one of my teachers ended up being lgbtphobic and i didn’t know, and announced to the class that she didn’t “agree with the lifestyle” and that “gay marriage isn’t what god wanted.” my mom got an email that day about me being out as trans at school. i wonder who could’ve sent it?

    my mom blew up. she was sending me treat after threat because i was a trender, all i did was lie for attention, that i chose to be trans because it was trendy and that real trans people wouldn’t flaunt their transness. of course, she got these resources from her transmed friend. she pulled me out of public school and cut my contact with the outside world for three whole months. i didn’t get back into school until february.

    DO NOT TELL ME THAT PEOPLE WITH DIFFERING OPINIONS ISNT TRANSPHOBIC AND HARMFUL BECAUSE EVEN AS A DYSPHORIC TRANS PERSON, TRANSMEDICALISM HAS RUINED MY HOME, MY FAMILY, AND MY LIFE. I WILL NOT STAND FOR TRANSMEDS OR PEOPLE WHO ALLOW THEIR INTERACTION. THEY ARE EXTREMELY HARMFUL AND NEED TO BE STOPPED BEFORE MORE LIVES ARE RUINED.

    findingfeather

    I mean: we did this with bi kids and particularly bi girls, right. With people my age.

    We got super gatekeepy and “you must be THIS GAY to ride this identity” and we complained at length about it being “trendy” and how girls only did it to be “cool” and to get attention.

    And so among other things I know one person I love is, for example, only JUST getting to have her FIRST relationship ever with a woman at slightly older than me because this shit got into her head and she didn’t think she was “allowed”.

    So watching people turn the same bullshit on even more vulnerable kids?

    This is a problem. This is lateral violence. And it needs to fucking stop.

    seraphimaversa

    Let me be clear, even if Transtrending was a thing (I do not think that it is), I would still much rather hear a 15 year old tell me that they thought they were trans and then realized they weren’t after a few months of playing with the idea, than hear about a 30 year old who finally transitioned after having a mental breakdown because they spent their life thinking they weren’t trans enough and therefore weren’t allowed to transition.

    Fighting the Transtrender Boogeyman isn’t protecting the integrity of trans rights, it just makes the struggle of atypical trans people harder.

    THROUGH A RAPIST’S EYES” (PLS TAKE TIME TO READ THIS. It may save a life, It may save your life.)

    An Article from Neena Susan Thomas

    “Through a rapist’s eyes. A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interview…ed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:

    1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle. They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun! , braid, or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.

    2] The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women who’s clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing.

    3] They also look for women using their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.

    4] The number one place women are abducted from / attacked at is grocery store parking lots.

    5] Number two is office parking lots/garages.

    6] Number three is public restrooms.

    7] The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don’t have to worry about getting caught.

    8] If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn’t worth it because it will be time-consuming.

    9] These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas,or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.

    10] Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you’re not worth it.

    POINTS THAT WE SHOULD REMEMBER:

    1] If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk: can’t believe it is so cold out here, we’re in for a bad winter. Now that you’ve seen their faces and could identify them in a line- up, you lose appeal as a target.

    2] If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they’d leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.

    3] If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.

    4] If someone grabs you, you can’t beat them with strength but you can do it by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and armpit or in the upper inner thigh – HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it really hurts.

    5] After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy’s parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you’ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause him a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he’s out of there.

    6] When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without using much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.

    7] Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don’t dismiss it, go with your instincts. You may feel little silly at the time, but you’d feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.

    FINALLY, PLEASE REMEMBER THESE AS WELL ….

    1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do it.

    2. Learned this from a tourist guide to New Orleans : if a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you…. chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

    3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car: Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won’t see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

    4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON’T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side,put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU CLOSE the DOORS , LEAVE.

    5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:

    a. Be aware: look around your car as someone may be hiding at the passenger side , peek into your car, inside the passenger side floor, and in the back seat. ( DO THIS TOO BEFORE RIDING A TAXI CAB) .

    b. If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.

    c. Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

    6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).

    7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!

    8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked “for help” into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

    Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it’s better safe than sorry.

    I was in line at Aldi and this girl with two toddlers in front of me had her card declined and she looked so fucking sad and said “let me call my husband real quick” and it was only 18 dollars, so I just paid for it, and she was very sweet and then as she walked off, the lady behind me said `”You know that was probably a scam, right?” and like, even if it was, like what a sad fucking scam, right? 18 dollars at the Aldi. If you’re “scamming” me for some Tyson chicken and apple juice and cauliflower, then just take my fucking money. 

    “A scam” people are fucking wild.  

    dragginage

    This happened to me, too. A woman had used WIC for the majority of her stuff (which I say from personal experience is such a long and embarrassing process) and to buy the remainder of her groceries, which included diapers and wipes, she used a card, and it got declined. I bought the other $30 of her groceries because hey, I’ve been there, and now I’m not. She was extremely emotional and began to cry and even hugged me. My mom called me on the drive home and could tell I had been crying myself, asked what was wrong, and when I told her what happened, she berated me for being “duped.” I couldn’t believe she could be so disappointed in one of her children for doing something- nice? Is that the hill you want to die on? Getting mad about people needing groceries?

    systlin

    I once paid for a woman’s bill at the vet…it wasn’t a big one, but she was trying to pay for some medication for her dog, and her card was declined. And her lip started trembling, and she says “I don’t get paid until Tuesday, would he be ok until then?” 

    So I just told them to add the $20 something onto my bill, and I thought she was going to break down crying right there.

    And I don’t care if it was a scam or not. Just do nice things for people sometimes.

    Do good recklessly.

    I think “Do good recklessly” would be fantastic word art to hang on one’s wall. Artistic people, go!

    7faerielights

    So this has happened to me but from the other side. Several years ago when my oldest was around three or so, I had my debit card decline at Walmart. It wasn’t a scam or a mistake, I was genuinely broke. Out of money. I checked my bank and discovered I had something like 7 dollars left to my name and a hungry kid and nothing to eat at home. So I sat there trying to come up with the best way to stretch that tiny amount of money to feed my kid. Not even to feed me. I can live on popcorn or something if I have to but my kid was three and he had to eat. So there I am trying really hard not to cry while I slowly take things out of my basket to get it down to under 7 bucks, when a lady tapped me on the shoulder. I looked up and she smiled at me and started putting the things back in my cart. I opened my mouth to tell her that I didn’t have the money for them but she stopped me right away and said “Don’t worry about it. It’s gonna be fine.” Then she handed the cashier her credit card and said “Ring up all of it.” My kid got to eat because of her. I got to eat because of her. I had laundry soap and deodorant because of her. She could’ve just ignored me silently struggling in that line. She could’ve decided I was a scam and gone home feeling good about avoiding being duped. But instead she chose to help me and she saved us. So maybe the person struggling in front of you is trying to put one over on you or maybe they are just sad and broke and trying to figure out what to do. You get to decide which you want to believe and what you want to do. But I’ll tell y’all, no one has ever been more beautiful to me than that lady in that line who saved me and my baby. Be like her. Be beautiful.

    One time, my dad and I were living the grocery store and there was a guy outside asking for money to buy some stuff to take home for his kids. It was around Christmas time. My dad asked him if he could give him groceries instead of money, and the guy immediately said yes, so my dad gave him one of everything we bought (meat, rice, some chocolates, milk, oil). At that time, my dad hadn’t gotten his paycheck because the company he worked for was going through a tough time, but he didn’t care, he saw an opportunity to help someone and he did.

    Another time, my dad gave 50 bucks to a guy who said he needed to buy medicine for his kids. I told my dad he was probably going to spend the money on alcohol or something, but my dad said that “whether he was lying or not says something about HIS character, but hearing someone in need and choosing not to help when I have the means to says something about mine”.

    I never forget that.

    This is what a real, qualified OBGYN will tell you about what women feel when they get an abortion

    Dr. Willie Parker, who is trained as a gynecologist and OBGYN, is a hero for the pro-choice movement because he’s honest about the undiscussed aspects of getting (or not getting) an abortion. Watch how he gives a consultation.

    That last statement about regret is so important, because so many people don’t understand what it is or what causes it. Anti-choicers exploit this by manipulating pregnant people and creating doubt, which only increases the likelihood of regret, no matter what decision the pregnant person makes. You know what is best for you, even if it takes some time to figure it out.

    Willie Parker is a HERO among common people!

    So I reblogged this exactly a week ago because I thought it was funny and uh lo and behold, a family friend wrote me a big ol’ check just to help me out of a tough financial spot AND my bank refunded me $32 for fees they’d originally taken out. SO UH YEAH. Reblogging this again in hopes that it brings equally good fortune to my followers.

    Raven’s Fic Recs (Part 2)

    image

    Hi Nonny!

    You came to the right place, my friend. 😏 

    image

    This list contains newer fic recs that are not on my original rec list. Lots of my faves and classics are on that list, so I definitely recommend checking it out!

    I think my reputation precedes me, but please note that almost every fic on this list is rated E. Yes, I’m a shameless smut addict. Come and be trash with me.😂

    Recently Read (Completed)

    A Bit of Summer Cabbage and An Autumn Wedding by @voicedimplosives. A sexy, sweet, clever, and wildly original 2-part fic from the Queen of Gorgeous Prose and Vivid World Building. It’s a Victorian AU where these two are anything but repressed. Rey is fairly innocent, but she’s all too eager to rectify that, and her fiancee Ben is thrilled to help. 😏

    Paint it Black by @quixoticlux . Artist Liason! Rey is determined to procure a piece from Reclusive Artist! Kylo Ren, so she shows up his doorstep on Halloween. Sparks fly, and let’s just say that candy isn’t the only thing that they end up eating. (Sorry, I had to. 😂) This fic is hot AF. Come for the delicious smut, stay for the phenomenal writing, humor, and feels.

    The Empress by @delia-pavorum. Empress Rey / Renperor one shot. Anyone who follows me knows how much Iove my dear Delia’s writing, but she really spoiled me with this one. 😍 Her Dark Reylo is superb: it feels so true to how they would play off one another as co-rulers. Her Badass! Empress Rey is to die for, and the ending will make you drool. 🔥

    Until You by @ever-so-reylo. A/B/O one shot. I’m a huge Ever-so stan (to put it mildly), and this fic honestly might be my favorite of hers. 😍 In addition to her A+ writing, smut, and world building, it combines all of my dark + light kinks: Dark Reylo but also Soft! Reylo; Power Imbalanced! yet also Equals! Reylo; Possessive / Dom / Dark! Ben yet also Soft Devoted! Ben; Protective! Ben;  loss of virginity kink; pregnancy kink..🤤 SO. GOOD.

    Reylo Fic Rec Masterpost

    Since I’ve been asked a couple times for fic recommendations, I decided to create a master list, which I’ll (hopefully) come back to and update. This is by no means comprehensive, but they are works I’ve thoroughly enjoyed and wanted to share. You can also always check out my bookmarks page on AO3.

    A lot of these are rated M or E (though some are T). Mind the tags when you open the link, and you should be fine! 

    *Indicates WIP

    Let’s start with some little known fics. These are all under 100 kudos as of May 9, 2018. Make sure to leave a comment and/or give kudos if you read!

    Ties That Bind* by @phoenixsolo – this fic is wonderfully written and jumps between multiple POVs. Also some great Poe and Wedge Antilles interaction which is fun. 

    Holonet Mail by MelodeeKS99 (not sure of tumblr) – this is the cutest You’ve Got Mail AU one-shot but still takes place in universe. Ben and Rey are both smugglers. Guys, it’s adorable.

    A Veil of Smoke* by @binarysvnrise – ASOIAF AU that is just masterfully thought out and so well-written. It is on hiatus (possibly permanently!), but it’s worth reading the 4 chapters that are there.

    come and knock on my door* by jadeddiva (not sure of tumblr) – this is a really cute modern AU where Ben is a programmer at a startup and Rey is his college student neighbor. They meet because both their roommates have kicked them out to have sex.

    every inch between us becomes light years by @spookykingdomstarlight – a beautiful one-shot that is both super sexy and sad. It hurts, but in a good way.

    Cloudbusting by @bratanimus – Beautifully written and short. Just read it.

    In-Universe Fics:

    Sword of the Jedi series by @kylorenvevo – are you even a real Reylo if you haven’t read this? J/K, but seriously this was one of the earliest fics I read when I fell into the Reylo trash bin, and it is a masterpiece. AU where Rey and Ben grew up together at the Jedi Academy. It reads like canon novels. Not kidding.

    Crossroads series by @gizkasparadise – This is an emotional rollercoaster in 3 parts. It’s got angst, it’s got the pre-TLJ Force Bond, it’s got memory loss, and some really kickass supporting characters. I just love it so much.

    You’ll Be the One to Turn* by @postedbygaslight – This is THE post-TLJ fic you need to be reading. It’s still a WIP at this point, but it’s sure to be completed soon, and like I told Posted before, if EP IX winds up totally letting me down, this will be the only version of events I accept. It is insanely well-written, gripping, and emotional. Just read it.

    Infectious by @dvrkrey – also known as the sick!fic. It’s a poignant hurt/comfort post-TLJ imagining with a beautiful first time love scene. This one has a special place in my heart.

    In The Early Dawn of Happiness by @corseque – GAH! This is beautiful and touching and even though it’s a reylohardkinks fill, it’s so much more than that. It is profoundly sweet, and if we’re lucky, there will be another chapter. 

    landscape with a blur of conquerors* by @kylorenvevo – I’m assuming if you haven’t heard of this fic, you’ve been trapped on Ahch-To with Luke for too long. The arranged marriage AU with plenty of Hapan couture fashion to keep poor Kylo occupied.

    Across the Stars* by @nite0wl29 – a Beauty and the Beast AU set in-universe (on Chandrila!). Rey falls for Kylo without him ever taking the mask off, and I think that’s beautiful. It’s got all the best elements of TFA, TLJ, and BatB. This one also should be wrapping up soon.

    Songs of Innocence, Songs of Wisdom* by @cosmo-gonika – another post-TLJ fic that has been blowing my mind. It has some mystical Force elements and some steamy scenes with Rey and Kylo. It does a really great job of showing where our star-crossed lovers are still not on the same page (but hopefully they’ll be there by the end!). 

    The Descent of Ishtar by @assortedfruitsnacks212 – this is a trippy post-TLJ fic that is super mystical and really intriguing. It’s so well-written, and I might have to light a fire under the author to get her to update this because I NEED MORE.

    Id by @dreamsdescent – a smutty one-shot where Rey fulfills Ben’s darkest fantasy. It’s hot. Do yourself a favor and read it.

    Mood Lighting by @raven-maiden – this is based on the closeup of the MF captain’s quarters in Solo. It is a beautiful one shot with humor, soul, and (yes!) smut. Can’t believe it’s her first fic! 

    World In My Eyes by @mygrandmathinksimsassy – apparently I had been sleeping on this post-TLJ gem? It’s 96k words and recently completed, so you can settle down with this on a rainy day. Beautifully written, really sexy, and has a happy ending! I loved it.

    AU Fics:

    Blades Crossedby @the-reylo-void – a really amazing figure skating modern AU a la The Cutting Edge.

    Stranger Than Fiction by @daxwashere – seriously? Probably my favorite modern AU ever. Ben Solo is an author who needs to give his main character a love interest; enter Rey, his muse. It deals with some pretty real shit while also being incredibly full of heart (and some hot smut!).

    Left Handed Kisses by @ever-so-reylo – the fuck buddies to lovers AU I never knew I needed. Rey is an Assistant District Attorney and Ben is a criminal defense lawyer. It’s hot, it’s sweet, it’s got lots of emotional constipation - you won’t be disappointed.

    In the Name of Magic series by @waterlilyrose – the Hogwarts AU of my dreams! Kylo is a Snape-ish professor in Slytherin and Rey is a Gryffindor professor (of course). It’s great because it incorporates everything you love about Hogwarts, but focuses on the teachers instead of the students. Luke is Headmaster and Leia is Minister for Magic and there’s a very special painting of a snarky muggle that steals quite a few scenes. I absolutely adore this fic.

    Dark Horse by @womp-rat-fever – this was a gift to me that I won in a tumblr giveaway. It is the Outlaw!Ben / Sheriff!Rey AU you never knew you always wanted! It’s a one-shot but it’s packed with action and pretty hot, too. I also made a playlist for it here.

    The Promise by @nerdherderette – Wow. This is the most enthralled I think I’ve been with a one-shot. It’s 13k words, but reads like a 500 page historical fiction novel. If you like The Count of Monte Cristo, this is the fic for you.

    Bedroom Hymns* by @drnucleus – Modern AU where Rey is a psychologist and Ben is an architect. Healthy BDSM where Rey is the Dom and Ben is the sub (although they haven’t quite gotten that far in the relationship yet). This is just really smart and eloquent. I’m a fan.

    Fire Away* by @reylolujah – disclaimer: I’ve only read the first chapter of this, but it’s SO GOOD. Laser tag AU with a really funny and great set up. Excited to see where it’s going! (I have it on good authority that we’re getting a half-naked Ben in a forthcoming chapter.)

    Your Pretty Little Heart by @ever-so-reylo – an a/b/o modern AU where Ben and Rey are both doctors. And both terrible at admitting their feelings. It’s hot and super-well written. If you’re into a/b/o then you’ll love it, and if you’re not… this is a good one to start with!

    That’s about it for now, but I’ve got about 5 pages of “marked for later” fics I need to dig into, so keep an eye out for this list to be updated!

    monsterleadmehome

    Reblogging for some new additions!

    (mainly the @raven-maiden one-shot which I can’t recommend enough)

    raven-maiden

    😭 my love you are too sweet to me! Thank you so much for the rec!! I love this list, but I see some notable fics missing from your list - namely yours. 😉 I’m copy pasting my reviews of two of your fave fics of mine from my own rec list!! No list is complete without them! 😘

    Dawn of the Rebellion by @monsterleadmehome (Part 2 of her Dawn of the Rebellion series- no smut yet, but full of plot points on my Ep. 9 wish list, and really lovely, moving characterizations. Next up for Part 3: smut!!). - Complete

    Training Day by @monsterleadmehome (canonverse AU. A delicious little drabble on a happy (i.e., smutty) ending to sparring practice. Dom / sub roleplay.) - Complete

    Raven’s Reylo Fic Recs

    My dears, you all know how addicted I am to Reylo fanfiction, and how I quite literally prefer reading it under the covers at night over actually getting sleep. Well, I got asked about my fic recs today, and before I knew it, I was furiously pounding out this beast of a list. And because I love you, my Reylo fam, I’m going to share it with you, too, in the hopes that you will enjoy these fics as much as I have, and continue to do. 

    Before we get started, some PSAs: 

    1. I am a smutaholic. This list is NOT for the underage or smut-averse. 

    2. There are some mild spoilers ahead for descriptive purposes. 

    3. The list reflects my personal preferences. As you’ll see, I’m quite new to AUs and skew heavily towards post-TLJ canonverse fics. I also have certain, um, kinks (*cough ABO and Possessive!Kylo cough*). 

    Without further ado, my darlings, I give you my personal Reylo fic rec list.
