I have a proposal to make
Umm hi I’m here to present my ugly child.
It’s name is Tidal Lock AU. It has sith!Rey and muggle!Ben Solo.
Okay hear me out I brought diagrams (sorta)
So basically, poor dear Ben here has about as much Force sensitivity as a cactus, Uncle Luke tried teaching him but after several years he like managed to levitate a small rock for tweleve seconds after concentrating for seven hours, so everybody just gave up on him.
His occupation is Resistance supply pilot and Skywalker family disappointment.
He’s a cutiepie who’s generally quite nice unless you piss him off (in which case you’ll end up with a hole in you from one of the six or seven blasters he carries). He’s a coward, prone to panicing, running first and asking questions later. He’s pretty used to weird.
His only probably Force-related talent is that he speaks about five million languages, including the garbled, accented communitation of the Falcon, so they usually send him out with it. For some reason he can perfectly manage the ship’s spaghetti-engineered Frankenstein’d garange-boosted systems and drives her with a near unheard-of precision.
Despite his language skills, he insists on speaking a weird mix of slang and smuggler lingo that usually renders him totally incomprehensible.
Rey however is a hella strong Force user, whose terrified parents left her on Jakku to fend for herself. Who found her? Yeah you guessed right. Snoke’s been the voice in her head for as long as she could remember, training her from a distance, waiting for the right moment to get her to him to complete her training.
She’s a tough survivor with enough aggression to fill three people, wicked staff skills, and zero tolerance for bullshit.
Her darksider power is drawing energy from sunlight, to be a better figher, have better focus, more strength, more stamina, to heal quicker. She can also light small fires, glow in the dark at will, and defeat her enemies with the power of irony. Also, when her solar batteries are drained from sitting too long in the dark, she crumples and has to be brought back into the light (Hah.)
She’s angry, easy to piss off, has little patience, and an almost religious devotion to Snoke.
Ain’t they cute.
Clueless Ben is sent alone in the Falcon for a routine supply run to Jakku. Shit hits the fan when Snoke recognizes him through Rey, and decides it’s time for her to go. So Rey attempts to commandeer the Falcon, except she’s such a weird junky zombie-ship she has trouble even doing the startup sequence, which is how Ben survives the ordeal
And that is how Ben Solo ends up lying to the entire Resistance and all her family about an errand he has to run for a really nice girl, while becoming the glorified space-chaffeur and sweet-talking grunt to the decidedly not nice lunatic with a voice in her head telling her to do things. Hilarity ensues. Especially since Rey does NOT like Ben (he pisses her off), and Ben, after the initial shock, thinks Rey is pretty weird, and is being kept hostage on his own ship. Angry bickering! Uneasy companionship! Maybe sexytimes…?
