I used to be entranced by the exact amount.
Encompassed with surveyance, right down to the decimal.
Except I realized the decimal’s last digit,
the sentence’s conclusion was never truly coming
and many instituted them there

I stumbled upon an old ask of yours which had pregnant!kylo being found by the Resistance after escaping an Omega collector. Leia thought that Kylo was raped by a FO officer but it shocked to learn that the Starkiller AKA Hux was his alpha. Idea that hit me: Kylo waits patiently for Hux and eventually gives birth on the Resistance base. But when Hux finally comes for him and the baby, Kylo is reluctant to leave the base.
Imagine Kylo having a really
stressful labour, to the point where he’s almost passing out with the pain from
his contractions, so Leia takes it upon herself to ignore Kylo’s wishes to give
birth on his own and enters the room, going to his side to hold his hand.
And to her surprise, Kylo
doesn’t push her away. He calls out for Hux, telling Leia that he needs his alpha to be here for their son’s
birth, and Leia sees the pain in her son’s eyes, and she knows that Kylo wouldn’t
have such an attachment to an alpha that he’s been coerced into mating with.
Armitage Hux means something to her son, and it pains her that such a despicable
man is intertwined in Ben’s soul.
Leia stays with Kylo for his
birth, telling him that he’s strong and that he’s doing so well, and not once
does Kylo flinch away from her touch. Kylo’s son is born hours later, healthy
and happy, a patch of dark hair already on his little head. The omega cries
when he holds his baby for the first time, overwhelmed and exhausted by
everything, and he even thanks Leia—though he doesn’t look her in the eye, but
Leia takes it. It’s more kindness than Kylo Ren has ever shown her before.
The next few days, Kylo
recovers his strength, feeding his baby and allowing Leia to visit him and her
grandchild, though the two don’t talk much. They’re both looked after by the
Resistance’s medical staff, and Kylo is even given his own room on the base
where he can sleep in a proper bed with his son’s crib next to him.
But it’s then that Hux shows
up, threatening to annihilate the entire base if Kylo is kept from him any
longer. He’s furious, seething with anger as he descends the ramp of his
cruiser, cape flowing in the wind as Resistance officers lead him to General
Organa. Leia gladly shows Hux to where Kylo is; not in a dungeon, not in a
cell, but in his baby’s nursery, sat on his bed whilst he rocks his son to
Hux gasps and struggles to
hold back his tears when he sees his omega again, embracing him tightly and fussing
over their son before taking Kylo’s hand.
“I’m taking you home,” Hux
says, giving Kylo’s hand a tug.
“Hux—wait, I don’t—,“ Kylo
mutters, wiggling his hand free. “I don’t…I don’t know if I can go back.”
And Hux is shocked, his core trembling as he turns
to see Kylo holding his son tightly as though Hux is going to harm either of them. Kylo tells him that
he feels safe here, that leaving would mean throwing himself back into the war.
Hux looks to the doorway,
seeing Leia standing there looking softly at her son, and Hux yells at her for manipulating
her own son against the life that he belongs in.
But what if Eleven never sees her own reflection until she returns to Hawkins for good? What if she can feel the soft fluffiness of her hair, but she doesn’t know what it looks like? The first time she looks in the mirror again, after all they’ve been through, she sees gentle, brown curly hair and says decisively with the brightest smile in years, “Pretty”
