I was buying a Kylo Ren Funko Pop today at GameStop and the cashier started saying, “Isn’t Kylo a little whiny?” and so forth and I’m thinking “Oh, great. Here we go.” So I told him that while Kylo has some anger to sort out, I think he’ll figure himself out in the end. To my surprise, the cashier agreed and went on to say that “Rey and Kylo are going to team up and take down the big guy together” and that he thinks Rey is either Obi-Wan Kenobi’s granddaughter, or Anakin reincarnated. He also told me how he’s been a long time Star Wars fan ever since he saw A New Hope in theaters when he was 7.
I don’t know, it just felt really good to talk to a veteran fan outside of Tumblr who isn’t rooting for Kylo’s death or adamant about Rey Skyw//alker.
