Loki Didn’t Pick the Lock
To the very rude anon whose message suggested (in very rude terms) that my interest in Kylo Ren is based in his representation as an attractive male.
Your assessment is inaccurate.
bilious, brooding, stubborn, sultry, theatrical
(even just for disney.)
The intersecton of femininity and power looks like a witch. The intersection of paganism and power looks like a trickster. They are wild and emotional with religious practices you don’t understand. They have (at times) soft manners, (at times) furious anger, long flowing dresses and long flowing hair, and cruel, rosy lips. They look often younger than they should, because dark magic lends itself to preservation.
They possess the same capacity for violence as the powerful old men they are surrounded by. They possess an unnerving and mysterious capacity to destroy these men and inherit the world from them.
Kylo Ren is on the feminine side of a two-sided religious and political conflict and the story will not depict him as happy or successful until he starts to act more like a ”man” is supposed to. Whereupon I will become less interested in him.
I am not attached to Kylo Ren because he is a powerful, good-looking man. I’m attached to him for his potential to destroy powerful, good-looking men.
