You asked it as if nothing else mattered to you.

  • ben solo: has felt the pull between the dark and light tearing his mind apart since early childhood, to such an extent that the turmoil manifests as physical pain.
  • ben solo: was born to parents entirely unequipped to deal with the mental and emotional struggles he faced, who were too busy with larger issues to give him the attention his special needs demanded.

  • ben solo: has literally lived his ENTIRE LIFE with a threatening presence inside his mind, twisting his own thoughts against him. was preyed upon, likely from birth, by an adult who meant to use him for his own gain. has been a victim of abuse by this same adult for THREE DECADES.
  • ben solo: had his entire childhood stolen and his identity wrecked before he'd ever had a chance to forge it for himself.
  • ben solo: deals with what appears to be severe mental illness with an abusive manipulator who has no concern for his well-being as his sole support network.

Kylo Ren x Reader

“Kylo Ren killed Ben Solo.”

Those had been the first words Leia had dared to utter when you returned bloodied and beaten, her eyes full of pity. Your best friend, the man you loved, had been killed and you’d been gone while it happened. You couldn’t understand it and you weren’t sure if you even wanted to. You’d just wanted to scream, to cry, to fight it, to run away, but instead you’d nodded and carried on. Instead you’d continued fighting for the Resistance. Instead you’d gotten captured by the very man that had killed Ben.

And as you stood, both arms secured tightly behind your back and the cool metal of a Storm Trooper’s blaster against your temple, you could finally understand why Leia had wanted to fight so badly. Seeing your dirtied reflection off the shiny black parts of Kylo Ren’s mask had ignited a fire deep within you. After Ben’s death, you felt empty, lost, but not Leia. She’d been filled with some urge to fight back, to somehow make up for what had happened to Ben, even if it wouldn’t bring him back. But it made sense now.
