landscape with a blur of conquerors is a Star Wars sequel trilogy fanfiction written by diasterisms. It pairs canon adversaries Kylo Ren and Rey. This work was very popular among Reylo fans. It is notable for building upon a lot of Star Wars Legends canon and been chock full of fanfiction tropes, including Arranged Marriage, Renperor, and Enemies to Lovers.

The story is currently offline, because it has been pulled to publish. It has been suggested that The Hurricane Wars by Thea Guanzon is the pro-version of this fic.[1] This is unconfirmed speculation, with the author describing The Hurricane Wars as an original story. Thea has stated publicly that she wrote in Star Wars fandom, but she does not want anyone to know her pseudonym, stating, “I am taking that to the grave”.[2]


"While I share your contempt for this situation in which we find ourselves, do not mistake it as apathy," he hissed through gritted teeth, dark eyes burning. "I hardly expect your disposition to sweeten, but I will be damned if I allow my future Empress to behave in a manner that reflects poorly on me and on the First Order!"

"If you allow?" She wrenched her arm out of his viselike grasp, batting his hand away for good measure. "I don't belong to you. I don't belong to anyone."

"That might have been the case back when you were a scavenger on that pitiful scrap heap of a planet, but now?" His sardonic gaze flickered over her silk robes and the jewels woven through her elaborate braids. "Now you are the Chume'da, and the Chume'da belongs to her people. Their fate is entirely in your hands. Should you cross the line, it is they who will suffer for it. Am I making myself clear?"

"I hate you," she said bitterly.

He sneered at her. "See? Already you are acclimatizing so well to married life."

Reactions and Reviews

This was another long one, partially finished, that I downloaded for my trip. And I think everyone is reading it, but if you aren’t, I will say that it lives up the hype! Extensive world building and a new culture with an enemies to lovers build and arranged marriage to boot. This is very carefully crafted and researched, and I just got caught up with it, and it’s fantastic![3]

J.J. Abrams and Chris Terrio: Are you unsure about how to proceed with closing out the Star Wars saga? Trying to figure out how to give your characters respectable arcs and understandable, complex lives and stories? Wondering how you might navigate giant plot holes while not overriding a lot of the canon? Looking for fantastic set pieces, worlds, aliens, battles, underlying themes, and political intrigue? Contemplating how in the world to write suspense, heartbreak, heroism, and hope?

Gentlemen, I present a master class in How It Is Done:

Landscape with a Blur of Conquerors by @kylorenvevo (as diasterisms)

Or, the Star Wars sequel saga I’d pay tons of money to watch as many times as I possibly could.[4]

FANTASTIC read. slow burn. probably the most popular fic in the fandom.[5]

A Sexually Tense Soap Opera of Galactic Proportions; The Trashy Romance Novel I’ve Always Wanted to Write but with Lightsabers[6]

This has been THE fic in my life for the last year. Incredibly detailed and researched, pulling from all kinds of Star Wars Extended Universe material, it begins after the events of The Force Awakens and sees Kylo and Rey forced into an arranged marriage for the peace of the galaxy. Rey also discovers who her family is, and they are definitely not nobody junk traders from Jakku. It’s intelligent, political slow burn smut and it will SUCK YOU IN.[7]
