On the Same Page-I’d Like My Obituary to Hint at a Sequel

A guilty pleasure that I actually feel no guilt about is Gothic stories. While I'm not normally into the visual aspects of storytelling, the picturesque yet dark atmospheres of Gothic stories just compel me and draw me in. The sense of doom or impending crisis that permeates a Gothic story - that right there is…

On the Same Page- I Almost Do

One of the parts of fic that I enjoy the most is exploring relationships we don't always get to see touched on in the canon materials (or maybe it's not explored satisfactorily, whatever.) There a lot of richness in the area of Ben Solo, his parents, his uncle, and his role as a Skywalker that…

On the Same Page-Sticking to the Script

It's no secret I'm a huge fan of the fake dating trope. I've featured fics in this series with that trope and consumed so much other media featuring it. It's a classic for so many reasons: the inevitable juxtaposition of the role that is being played versus the Actual Feelings that surface; two people joining…

On the Same Page – Zersetzung

Everyone's life during the current global pandemic looks different. Some are out of work, some are working more than ever. Some people live alone and some with family or kids that are no longer in school And everything in between. My situation is a mixture of working (both my job and my husband's jobs are…

On the Same Page-The Problem

In times like these, I am so grateful for ways to escape the overwhelming terribleness of the real world. I'm so grateful for fanfic and romance novels. Everyone is different, but I find myself gravitating to stories that are soft and fluffy with happy endings. A fic I recently finished that fits this bill perfectly…

On the Same Page-House by Your Warmth

Normally, for this post I focus on a completed multi-chapter fic. This week I'm changing it up and writing about a one-shot. But this one-shot feels like a multi-chapter fic. The writing is rich and the story just feels like more, without having to slog through more. The fic is Housed by Your Warmth  by HarpiaHarpyja. Housed…

On the Same Page-The Hand That Feeds

One of the most unique writers that is currently writing in the Reylo community is persimonne and one of my favorite of her fics is The Hand That Feeds which is a Victorian AU that features spinster Rey who is an archaeologist. She accidentally stumbles upon and revives Vampire Kylo. And they're accidentally married. What ensues…

On the Same Page-Flux & Solder

I was reading fic on Christmas Eve, as one does, and I stumbled upon Flux & Solder  by anghararbbit. This author is a favorite of mine, and I didn't know that I was going to read what would become an insta-fave. This is a story of two extreme introverts, Rey and Ben, who find themselves neighbors.…
