Kylo lets it go at first, a reminder of Hux’s last visit still fresh in his mind as he sits on his throne and fills his waking days by listening to one unending tale after another; creatures from all reaches of the galaxy now stripped of their corporeal bodies, until only the flame of their essence float before him, putting forth every deed done in their miserable lives.
But as the hours turn monotonous, as he finds himself once more caught up in an endless cycle of death, and judgement, only to crawl into his bed with mind-numbing exhaustion for yet another sleepless eternity, Kylo Ren’s thoughts wander back to the mouse— the girl.
Author’s note: New chapter!! too lazy to find a gif, so you guys get the moodboard ;p Whatever is Kylo up to now. A huge thanks to my bb @darth-ej as always for betaing for me.
(also the implication that retelling old stories/reusing concepts isn’t worthwhile because of course it is and also unavoidable. Idk. somehow enjoy seeing shitty/flawed/old stories remixed vs, hearing something is inspired by something I already like makes me less likely to check it out. As I type this I realize I’m making no sense at all)
