    Summary

    The rules were as such. Each prince had until the eve of the next full moon to find three quest items to bring back that would prove their worthiness. The first item was a large amount of gold. The second was a mystical artifact whose powers would help benefit the kingdom. And lastly, they had to find a wife of royal lineage willing to become their queen. For generations, the Three King’s Quest was used to decide Exegol’s next reigning king. That was how it had been for the longest time, that’s how everyone always thought it would be.

    With her kingdom plunged in eternal darkness thanks to her evil grandfather, it's up to Reynella, the first-ever princess born into the house of Palpatine, to go on an epic quest to prove she is worthy of becoming queen and breaking the long-standing curse over Exegol. Along the way, she comes across the castle of Kylo Ren, a mysterious enchanter who has both the gold and treasures she needs to complete her quests and is currently keeping a prince captive as well. Reynella schemes to free him, however, not everything is as it seems. Can she rescue the prince and make it back home in time to earn her crown and help her kingdom?

    Based on the fairy tale, 'Petronella'.

    Summary

    Rey has spent all of her life waiting. First, for her parents, then for purpose, then for belonging, and always for love. Her tongue catches on asking for what she wants because all that she ever wanted didn't come back. So, at twenty-eight going on twenty-nine, she is still a woman happened to. Life touches her just as it touches everyone, but nothing more.

    After escaping, she is stagnant, and once another dream falls through she is listless as one-by-one her friends leave their restaurant jobs in favor of living their lives the way they've always wanted to. She hasn't let herself want, so her next move is shapeless.

    It is a small spark of hope, in a large, uncouth package, that makes not wanting an impossible task, though she does her goddamn best.

    Summary

    Rey stood up and he was on his feet in a moment, too- thoughtlessly, she went to lunge for the door in sheer terror, but he grabbed her and dragged her backwards, covered her mouth with a ridiculously large hand.
    “Shh, shh- I’m not gonna hurt you. Yet. Shh…”
    She shivered almost violently and stared at the door. His breaths fell gently on her ear, his cheek just barely touching her head. He had one arm slinked around her body, and the other pressed firmly over her mouth.
    “Poor girl- you’ve lost so much fight,” he noted softly. He moved in closer, his nose brushing the top of her ear. “And you don’t smell anything like strawberries- get yourself some strawberry shampoo, sweetheart. We’ll have a much more pleasant relationship that way.”
    Rey shuddered and feebly fought his hold on her. He sighed, then pressed three kisses into her scalp-
    Just like he had before he’d set her loose and she’d ran away like a bat out of hell fourteen years ago. “I’ll see you tomorrow, shortcake,” he said softly, and then, he let go.
    Rey surged forward to the door and opened it, pressing it shut behind her. She remained leaning on it for a few seconds as someone approached.

    Summary

    Rey Niima is an Omega who swears she’ll never end up with an Alpha- she doesn’t need to be dominated, thank you very much. Then how is it she finds herself torn between two males of that very same designation- one who happens to be her boyfriend, and the other who just might be her soul mate? Rey is not the kind of girl who goes looking for trouble, but in this instance, it seems trouble has found her.

    “What’s the difference?” I asked him. “Between the love of your life, and your soul mate?”
    “One is a choice, and one is not.” ―Mud Vein, Tarryn Fisher.
