Hi! Today all the reylo drama has made me realize I kind of want to look into shipping reylo. I'm mainly a fic person, tho. Do you know of a place I could go to get a few recommendations for some fics to start getting into it?
First off, I’m sorry your first experience with this fandom had to have been through crepegate™, lmao.
As far as fic recs, someone made a pretty extensive list today that sorted their favorite fics by genre/length, etc. I’ve read quite a number of stories on that list and I’ve really enjoyed them, so maybe give that a shot.
And here’s a some highly-regarded fics in the fandom (and some of my favorites) :
- Interstellar Transmissions by LovelyThings & ricca_riot
FANTASTIC read. Probably the most popular fic in the fandom.
- A Collision of Stars by dustoftheancients
Such an amazing fic. Really slow burn, amazing characterization, and fantastic storyline. It was SO engaging (and made me cry at a few points, ngl)
- Charcoal by luvkurai:
Modern AU. Kylo’s a dark, broody artist and Rey’s a student in college. Such an engaging and interesting fic.
- Honeymoon by LueurdeLaube
In-universe. Rey and Kylo decide to sleep together to resolve the tension between them, lmao. It’s an unfinished fic but it’s SO amazing. I love Rey and Kylo’s characterizations. I just really, really adore this fic.
- landscape with a blur of conquerors by diasterisms
An ongoing in-universe arranged marriage fic wherein Rey finds out that she’s heir to the throne of a galaxy sector called the Hapes Consortium. Beautiful, descriptive writing. It’s a slow burn full of UST.
- People Will Say by ReyloTrashCompactor
Really fun fake!relationship fic. I love it so much. Rey’s agreed (at the request of Leia) to pretend to date
Kylo Ben (post-redemption) to kind of ease other people in the Resistance into accepting him back into the fold.
- Conscience and Unconciousness by pontmercy44
Another fake!relationship fic based on the movie While You Were Sleeping. Modern AU. Fantastic fic. Just so funny and endearing too. I love the characterizations of not only Rey and Kylo, but of Leia, Han, and Luke as well. Their family dynamic is just amazing in this. I laughed out loud so many times.
And this fic kept me so engaged, I read the entire thing in one night.
