so one of the things i loved about star wars was how much rey could do.
fix busted spacecrafts? well she’s been scrounging for parts literally to feed herself so that’s not hard for her to work out.
fly? she’s clearly got some piloting in her, plus all the mechanical/electrical knowledge. it’s not just coming out of nowhere?
use a lightsaber like a kickass mofo? did you see her with that staff in the beginning? that’s a hell of a lot more of a transferrable fighting style than a blaster.
even resist kylo ren’s force shit? well she’s been on her own for a long time, surviving in a desert while waiting for years for her family to come back to her to no avail. that takes some hella strength of mind and will.
they gave her all these skills and power, but they were things that she had cultivated, not things she was graced with.
