٩(๑･ิᴗ･ิ)۶ Another Kylux Fic Rec!
Dedicated to the three recently recieved anons, who wanted me to recommend some Quality Kylux Goodness™. Here you go.
Hux’s new house is not haunted. It isn’t.
“I should’ve met your earlier, Captain Hux. You would’ve seduced me to the winning side right away, and I wouldn’t have wasted my time on a ruined planet with a half-crazed hermit and a dozen little jerks. I would’ve followed you to the end of the world.”
By the time the events of SW:TFA unfold, Armitage Hux and Kylo Ren are bitter exes. This is what happened before.
It starts the way a pornographic film might: one summer, cable installment technician Matt begins a torrid affair with Madeline, the disaffected widow of a pharmaceutical executive. It seems to be a perfect match - both of them volatile, both of them lost. But it isn’t long before Matt meets Madeline’s son, a reclusive and put-upon young man who is known by his few friends simply as “Techie.” As the bond with Madeline begins to deteriorate, Matt becomes increasingly fascinated with Techie, and Techie with him, and a relationship begins that is unlike any either of them has ever had.
Really, Ren reflects, he should try and be more in touch with his own feelings. If he’s going to be a writer — well, he is a writer; if he’s going to be a successful writer, he needs to be able to embrace the full spectrum of human emotion.
As it is, he’s just kind of embracing a desire to punch his coworker in the dick.
(AKA ‘five million times he tried to seduce the annoying General and one time Phasma helped out’.)
Hux has always had a plan for his life. It’s going well. He’s following in his father’s footsteps with the College Republicans and writing for the prestigious “First Order” campus conservative magazine with his new friend Dopheld Mitaka.
Until he meets Mitaka’s roommate, Kylo Ren – who is everything he shouldn’t want.
“I’m not a very nice person,” Hux says. Ben’s gaze snaps to Hux’s face, dark eyes intent. “Do you like spending time with people who aren’t very nice to you?”
Kylo hates his job, his life, his hot neighbor Hux, cats, turning thirty, and everything, not necessarily in that order.
Well, maybe cats – and Hux – are OK. Whatever. Being thirty still blows.
Ren catches Hux spying on him while he changes, and decides to make use of the situation.
