It’s been 4 years and I am still reading Reylo. I keep thinking, I’ll stop! Then Adam Driver does something super sexy, like act, or just breathe and someone brilliant writes an amazing Reylo fic, and am right back to it. “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.”
I am enormously grateful for every single Reylo writer out there, sharing your work, talents and creativity with us. Our fandom has attracted incredible writers. In 2021, the former Ever-So-Reylo landed on the NYT Bestseller list with what was formerly a beloved Reylo fic.
I have no doubt there will be others to publish professionally in 2022. We are so lucky with the talent we are blessed in this fandom. Without further ado, welcome to my fourth annual Reylo fic favourites list.

Art commissioned from legendary artist @selunchen. I call it "Kiss the (Jedi) Girl", except instead of Sebastian singing, it's BB-8 beeping in Dagobah. Image
The Lazy River by NoeticEdda
Rey whiles away the summer at a waterpark, while musing about the possible secret identity of the grumpy vending-machine sized lifeguard she has a crush on. So many things to love…The music, the banter, the humour! 😍 Image
Sleep Talk by quamquam20
Rey and Kylo Ren are “Force-ibly” intimate when the Bond kicks in when they are asleep and vulnerable. The gorgeous prose conveys the depths of their need for each other and the crushing reality of their estrangement. Image
The Scent of Water
With his familial aversion to sand, Kylo Ren insists that Rey take a shower in his ‘fresher. The awkward intimacy gives him the opportunity to share his feelings for her.
I love the lyrical prose & the romantic reveal. Image
On Base by Tasu7
I adored the slow burn, gentle humour & comforting domesticity of the story where Ben works with his father Han and Rey works as a mechanic. When they meet, Ben recognizes their kindred force sensitivity and begins to fall in love. Image

The Redemption of Kylo Ren by nixcomix
After her final battle with Palpatine, Rey does not pass into the Force, but in a stasis where she can communicate with Kylo Ren and Finn. Amazing fic...the characters, both canon & original, are so richly drawn. Image
Glory’s Fray by avidvampirehunter
One day, when it's a bestseller or film, we will all sigh about the epic romance of gladiator Kylo Ren & the slave girl, Rey. The story is inspired, beautiful, wrought with adventure and the wonder of spiritual faith. Image
The Ward by dreamingspires
Rey Johnson, an orphaned omega, is secretly in love with her Alpha guardian, Lord Ben Solo. What a sexy Regency… the yearning, the sexual tension amidst the scandals of the Ton. Think Bridgerton but with heat sex & knots. Image
My Day with Ren by anopendoor
A Roman Holiday AU about a photojournalist & a movie star. Top-notch edits & manips make the story come alive. The dialogue & the epistolary format lovingly reveal how first impressions can be really, really wrong. Image

A Promise to the Moon by MissBinx
I love the angst in this story. Rey's sad upbringing makes her believe that she is not deserving of unconditional love. Sweet & at once heartbreaking, this one kept me reading until its happy ending. Image
Just a Bite by AquaWolfGirl
When his therapist suggests following a food blog to counter Ben’s dark moods, Ben stumbles upon Rey’s cooking blog. This is so charming, and how they finally meet is so beautifully written. This is a perfect comfort read. Image
to covet by duelingaxis
4 years after his death, the ghost of Ben Solo returns & disrupts Rey’s new life as a Jedi teacher. I loved the nuances of the relationships portrayed here; friendship, jealousy, acceptance…and long-lost love found again. Image
you and tequila (make me crazy) by irridesca bit.ly/3qXB9zz
Co-workers and nemeses Ben and Rey’s constant sniping takes a turn when Rey proclaims that he has “no game”. Ben sets out to prove her wrong, with delightfully sexy results. Image
I Got It by AteLala
Naïve Rey gets into a sexual relationship with her prof. Sleazy, entitled Ben takes, takes, and takes. Heartbroken when he claims credit for her work, Rey ruins his life. As sexy as it is emotional, I can’t forget this story. Jackpot. Image
baby, it will bury us by diasterisms
So MANY things I loved about this superb story of CEO Ben Solo & the student he sets up to be his mistress; the banter, Paris, the food, the culture, the historical references, and the funniest FaceTime sex scene. Image
Comfort Zones by emmyjean
Rey takes a job as P.A. on a porn film set & meets misanthropic porn star Kylo Ren. She connects with him over a shared love of literature and theater. Witty and sexy, with splendidly drawn characters, this is an all-time fave. Image
💜This wraps up my favourites of 2021. It took me so long to finish, because it was impossible to choose among so many outstanding stories. I thank all the writers -- ALL #Reylo writers -- for the joy, delight and romance you bring to my life. Thank you so much and kudos. 💜

Welcome to my 5th annual list.
Honestly, what in the actual fuck. I thought I’d be over this. But I guess my love for Reylo fanfiction is “Staying Alive” *snorts*

Art by the stunning Bianca, aka @pandacapuccino. Seriously, that woman is absolutely gorgeous as she is talented.
I always agonize about this list, and each year gets harder and harder for me… hello, we are well into July at this point.
I’m so thankful for all the fic writers out there who are so generous in sharing their heart, their creative spirit and talents with us. 🙏🏽💕💜
Writers, I am grateful for the Reylo romance and thrills and joy you bring to my life, and to others. I give you a bouquet of kudos. Thank you so very much to every single one of you who have written fics for our fandom in the last year.

Today over at RFR, the gloriously talented @infintgalaxies is our guest mod for our Sultry Sunday feature! Nikki is a prolific writer in the fandom, and if you haven’t read her stuff, please check out : bit.ly/infinitegalaxi….
have loved so many of her stories, but there is one short fic that I absolutely love, called “Or Else”. Check it out at bit.ly/3qElust
It’s a Girls AU, in which Rey seduces her new step brother Ben.
I loved how strategic Rey was with her seduction, but with the underlying story of a streetwise 18-year-old girl seeking love, safety and shelter. It’s wonderful!

Let’s all binge together! 🤗
I’m so excited to read this .
Okay I just finished the first chapter and it’s awesome! Sexytimes right off the bat & I am so intrigued.
I just found the playlist too, and listening to it. I love it! 🛼
2nd chapter and OMFG I love the idea of polearoke! I love scrappy Rey in this one and she definitely has her heart guarded. And she sings a duet with Ben, “nothing’s gonna stop us now”. This is the 2nd Reylo fic I have read where that has happened so, it’s fanon now!
