Funny how maya thinks lucas would be picking riley even if he picked her bc that's "who she's been lately" but he described her as the girl who he met on the subway and the girl who hahurs him and worries about him on texas not the girl she's been lately
You want a relatable TFA character with a mental illness? Finn.
You want a First Order character who gets a redemption arc? Finn.
You want a TFA character who’s an abuse survivor? Finn.
You want a really cool guy to ship Rey with? Finn.
You want a guy who you can woobify? Finn. (And man, he’s already a woobie so you don’t even have to woobify him.)
You want someone who’d be wonderful in fluffy, shippy fanfics? Finn.
You want someone who interacts with Rey and has an interesting dynamic with her? Finn.
You want someone for Rey to inspire to be a better man? Finn. (And you can even argue that she’s already done that to some extent!)
EVERY GODDAMN THING THAT KYLO REN APOLOGISTS WANT IN KYLO REN IS ALREADY IN FINN.
And better yet?
All that stuff I mentioned with Finn is already canon! Explicitly so, no guessing needed!
I’m not forcing you to love Finn. If you have legitimate reasons to dislike him, that’s cool! We all have different tastes; such is life.
But the next time you think of making Ren into this poor abused woobie baby for Rey to ‘fix’, think again…because the man you want is here for your needs. And he’s a hero, too! Granted, villains are nice, but who doesn’t love a good cinnamon roll hero now and then?
if my future kid ends up like me and becomes obsessed with some band or some shit and wants to stay up for a release you better believe I’m gonna be looking back on this right here while I’m right there next to em with snacks and a fuckton of coffee
