Rey knows she needs to find Luke, but she has a hard time leaving Leia behind.Author's notes:
In which I fill my own femslash_kink
, because I love Leia+Rey hurt/comfort fic and I want more of it to exist, and process some of my own feelings along the way. Written as a missing scene at the end of The Force Awakens, before Rey leaves on her mission. Posted in memory of Carrie Fisher. We miss you, Space Mom <3Read @ AO3
I gotta say, between The Last Jedi coming out and the one-year anniversary of Carrie Fisher's death, I've been absolutely awash in Star Wars-related emotion as of late. Seriously, I've been a wreck. I wrote this fic in the three days leading up to the date of Carrie's death, right before and after I saw the movie for a second time. I'm definitely a believer of the importance of striking when the iron is hot when it comes to creating fanworks (I know there are a ton of you out there with much more discipline, but that's not how I roll), and as a result this fic was fairly easy to write as I just channeled all that emotion into it. I'm always eternally grateful to fandom both for producing big emotions in me and giving me a way to channel them. <3
I have a lot more to write about Star Wars (which should honestly be at least two other separate posts at some point!), but I will say that the Star Wars fandom has produced some of the very best
hurt/comfort and gen fic that I've ever read, and my SW bookmarks on AO3 are some of the fics I reread the most, especially when I'm feeling down. I'm very pleased to finally contribute something to the canon of Rey hurt/comfort fic, also something that will hopefully be enjoyed by people like myself who wanted so many more
Rey & Leia scenes than what the movies gave us.
