Star Wars Fic: Sex, Adrenaline, and a Maximum of Three Feelings (Leia/Poe)

This is the story I wrote for RarePairs, and I'm not gonna lie: I'm really proud of this one. After I stopped freaking out about how my recip left me absolutely NOTHING to go on, I started enjoying the freedom of being able to write whatever the hell I wanted. This story is a lot more "me" than most things I write for exchanges, by which I mean that it's complicated and tangled and adult and hopefully real. I wanted Leia to have a happy ending with a hot guy who loves her and knows how to have a healthy relationship, but I also knew it wouldn't be easy for her to get there. Eight thousand words later, I think I was able to tell that story -- but I'm still hoping that one day, I learn how to write Star Wars fic that isn't quite so long.

Title: Sex, Adrenaline, and a Maximum of Three Feelings
Rating: Teen
Pairing: Leia Organa/Poe Dameron
Summary: Leia never intended to start flirting with Poe Dameron. Once she started flirting, she never intended to start sleeping with him, much less develop feelings for him. But then, so few things in her life have turned out the way she expected. Why should this one be any different?
