Ereri/Riren Fanfiction Rec List (Updated!)

This is a huge list. Like wow. This took a while.  Anyway, these are all really amazing fanfics, and y’all should check them out.  As you may be able to tell, once I find an author I like, I tend to read everything they wrote. Also, I know that a lot of these are present on other rec lists, but that’s because they’re just that awesome so I had to include them. I know that lots of these are available on both AO3 and FFN, but I just linked them to whichever site I read it on first. This list will be updated as I find new fics, cause there are just so many wonderful fics and authors for this pairing.

What the Hell is Wrong with Kylo Ren?

by Tuli_Azzameen

Rated M

This story is hilarious. Kylo is captured and (quite thoroughly) restrained by the resistance. He only wants to talk to Rey and no other living beings. Oh, did I mention the glorious chapter where Kylo really has to pee and Threepio has to help him? Nuff said

Fractured timeline Modern AU. This, is by far one of the cutest, most amazing, best plotted stories I have ever read. It tells the story of Ben and Rey from little kids to adults. (it reminds me of the Taylor Swift song “Oh, My, My, My”) Do yourself a favor and read this beautiful story
