Part One // Part Two // Part Three //

!!LOL !!IM!! HAVING !!A !!MENTAL!! BREAK!! DOWN!!

*clears throat* 

EXCUSE ME. RIAN SAID THAT THERE WOULD BE NO ONE-TO-ONE EQUIVALENT OF HAN-TO-LEIA, BURNING, UNREQUITED LOVE IN THEIR STORY AND IT WAS NOT A CENTERPIECE.

I am losing my shit over these ants.

Because Tumblr is being fucked up, when I go to ‘#Reylo’ on laptop, it shows me ‘#An/ti Reylo’. So I have to see shit like. 

For one, what Rian said literally did not debunk ANY of the Star Wars ships- like I have seen some ants claim. 

Example: An anti was saying Reylo and finnrose will not be canon and there will be “no romance in this trilogy”. Also saying that Rian debunked Reylo but us Reylos keep insisting he didn’t. 

Which yes, we are insisting he didn’t. BECAUSE HE DIDN’T LMAO.

BOYEGA: Yes, Finn and Rey – they’re just friends. Finn is a Stormtrooper, so he doesn’t really know what’s going on. So the romance thing is something that’s going to be interesting in the next installment. It’s not going to go the way you think it’s going to go.

HM. PRETTY SURE THERE IS GONNA BE SOME ROMANCE.

Most of us didn’t even think that Reylo was gonna be romantic as fuck in TLJ anyways. PERSONALLY I always thought that Rey and Kylo in The Last Jedi were just going to form a strong connection.

!Intertwined destinies!

“ NO ONE-TO-ONE EQUIVALENT OF HAN-TO-LEIA, BURNING, UNREQUITED LOVE IN THEIR STORY”

Okay so… the main focus of TLJ is not romance. But then John says that the romance is something that’s going to be interesting…

That literally tells you that there IS gonna be romance, just not heavily focused on, or it is going to be subtle- IN THE LAST JEDI.

Not the movie afterwards.

(I’m rambling now but I need to get it out.)

I totally think there is going to be something subtle going between Rey and Kylo, slowly building. 

SLOW BURN AS FUCK. 

Also, Adam and Daisy literally hung out in preparations for their roles

BACK TO WHAT I MADE THIS POST FOR- I got distracted:

This person says that our theory of Kylo and Rey’s relationship being basically a balance in the force was shut down, when really it wasn’t.

At all.

Their roles together, to bring balance, does not have to be romantic at all LMAO. I’m pretty sure ants just assume all of our theories involve romance, which is sad as fuck.

Anyways. I’m tired. 

HAVE A GOOD DAY. XX

P.S there is gonna be romance, because Rian said that romance would not be a centerpiece of the movie.

Just in case you didn’t know.

Centerpiece:  an item or issue intended to be a focus of attention.

!!!

I feel like if there was gonna be no romance at all in the future movie, he would not have added that bit. 

Letting you know.

finnreyhardliner  asked:

Just keep your fucking stans out of my inbox dumbass. Sorry Rian talked in a national magazine about how fucking delusional your ship is and how it's not happening now or ever. Sucks to suck, huh?

Rian didn’t say anything about Reylo but I know someone who talked about Finn and rey.

“Yes, Finn and Rey – they’re just friends. Finn is a storm trooper, so he doesn’t really know what’s going on. So the romance thing is something that’s going to be interesting in the next installment. It’s not going to go the way you think it’s going to go.”  - John Boyega

So maybe we all suck, buttercup.

Big data gonna fuck ya

I was just looking through the friend suggestions on Facebook. A very old ex girlfriend from 20 years ago popped up. I truly can’t see how they made that link.

I’m very privacy conscious, and have been trying to use Facebook again after a 4 year hiatus, but with a negligible footprint on FB.

I haven’t had contact with my ex for twenty years
I don’t have any shared Facebook contacts with her
I am using a completely different email address for my new Facebook account that she cannot have.
I have never used the Facebook Messenger app on my phone.
I have never used the Facebook app on my phone.
I have never shared my contact list with Facebook.
I have never shared my mobile number with Facebook.
I have her in my contacts on Google Contacts, and hence in my phone contacts, but only an old Hotmail email address that I would surprised she even still uses. No phone number for her.
I have not viewed her profile, nor searched for her by name on Facebook
I even use a different name on Facebook to my legal name (I’m trans, so shoot me)
I only ever use the Facebook mobile website on my phone
I don’t live close to her, in fact I live in a different country, so we don’t have any location proximity
The only thing I do have is WhatsApp on my phone, but since I haven’t shared my mobile phone number with Facebook it can’t have tied my Facebook profile to my WhatsApp contact entry. I also don’t have my Facebook email address in my phone/Google contacts against my entry. It’s one I setup purely for my trans identity.

This is seriously creepy. How the hell have FB figured that out?

Update
I think I’ve figured it out. The steps go like this:

I delete my old FB account 4 years ago. I also delete the content of that account manually first (all photos, timeline, mobile number, etc), change the email address to a Hotmail alias address. I then apply for a permanent account deletion. I receive the deletion confirmation on that alias address.
My ex isn’t in my friend list in my old account, but her contact details were part of a contacts upload I did for the old account.
My old FB account had the mobile number I have still today. Friends will have that number and my pre-alias email address in their contact list.
I create a new FB account. I create a brand new email address, and never share my mobile number with FB for the new account. I also refrain from using any of FB’s apps except WhatsApp.
A current FB friend has FB Messenger or WhatsApp installed. They tied my contact entry to my old FB account since they have my old account’s email address and telephone number.
That friend changes the name of my contact entry in their phone via the name change that one of my FB current contacts made in their phone, which notified FB of the change via one of their apps on my friend’s phone.
FB matches my old account to my new account by name.
Hence, FB have tied my new account and my old account together, which was of course my express desire to avoid that.

How does FB Messenger tie to your contacts out of interest when it is installed? I’ve never used it, so I’m not sure how it integrates into your contact list. Is it like WhatsApp that offers you a WhatsApp link against a contact?

Standing Julian is a portrait of Urs Fischer’s friend and fellow artist Julian Schnabel. The massive sculpture is also a wax candle: lit every morning and extinguished each night, Standing Julian will slowly melt over the course of Human Interest: Portraits from the Whitney’s Collection. Although this candle will eventually burn down and be discarded, the sculpture can also be recast and lit anew. As Fischer explains, his waxworks allow “materials and images to take on their own life.”

See how the 1,000 pound work was installed on Facebook

Human Interest: Portraits from the Whitney’s Collection opens Wednesday, April 27.

Romance in episode 8

John Boyega said (about finnrey) :
“yes, Finn and Rey – they’re just friends. Finn is a storm trooper, so he doesn’t really know what’s going on. So the romance thing is something that’s going to be interesting in the next installment. It’s not going to go the way you think it’s going to go.”

could he have meant finnrose? 🤔I am not sure.

anonymous asked:

Do you think Reylo will be canon? It's been over a year since TFA, so everyone's had plenty of time to think it over :P

Hi, anon! You know, I was fairly certain it would be canon after the first viewing or two of TFA for reasons better outlined by many a meta’er other than me, but the supplementary material that has been released has made me 99% sure it will happen. I’m not one to put all my eggs in one basket or need my ships to be canon, either. I.e., I’d like Finnrey a lot if it happened, and if Rey ended up alone that would be cool too. But here are the key comments that have made me damn near certain that Reylo is the way they will go:

1. “Yes, Finn and Rey – they’re just friends. Finn is a Stormtrooper, so he doesn’t really know what’s going on. So the romance thing is something that’s going to be interesting in the next installment. It’s not going to go the way you think it’s going to go.” -John Boyega, (x)

IMO, what with the flirting and the hand-holding etc, Finnrey seems like the obvious choice for viewers. Reylo would be much more difficult to pull off, and much more unexpected by the casual fans. This comment also indicates that there will be on-screen romance in Episode VIII (re: next installment), and as of the current leaks we don’t really know if Finn and Rey share any screentime. We DO know that Adam and Daisy spent several weeks filming in Ireland together.

2. It’s very unlikely that Rey and Kylo are related

Space cousins doesn’t seem like the likely route, either.

3.  “So the idea here is that Kylo Ren’s gotten inside of Rey’s head, sees that she has seen the map and is now letting go of the droid as his goal, and focusing just on her. And clearly you think, well he must be able to just extract the information he wants now. But because he’s taken her, you get a sense that there might be something else going on here.” -JJ Abrams, (x)

What else could be going on, JJ? This statement all but says, “Kylo has a personal interest in the girl,” which becomes a sexual thing when you consider the Death and the Maiden going on in this scene and the likelihood that they are not related.

4. “Well Rey is very forgiving, so you know…” -Carrie Fisher, (x)

Why would Carrie mention Rey’s forgiving qualities in a comment about Kylo, if Rey were not going to forgive Kylo in some form or fashion? We have not seen much “forgiveness” from Rey yet, so IMO this quality will become more apparent in Episode VIII via the progression of her relationship with Kylo.

anonymous asked:

How often do you go to museums? And what was the last art-installation that blew you away? I ask because yesterday I saw an Exhibit for the work of Julio Le Parc, and I was blown away by the simple but elegant and sometimes disorienting interplay of light and mirrors in dark spaces. I had to force myself to leave.

I went to them a little more often in high school and college, though unfortunately haven’t gone to one in a couple years (mostly because my days off are far too busy). There was a South African artist who did an interesting installation about the issues of her home with anthropomorphic animal children and recycled tires when I was at SCAD but I can’t remember her name. I’ve been to woefully few museums, because I primarily only go when I’m on vacation.

anonymous asked:

wait when did john say the romance would be "unexpected"? Is this recent?

The quote is actually a year old now (it’s from a Variety article):

I loved the developing romance between your character, Finn and Rey in “The Force Awakens.” How is that romance evolving in the next chapter?

Boyega: I mean, we didn’t establish a romance in seven; we never played it that way. Daisy and I, we’re friends.

So there’s no romance?

Boyega: Yes, Finn and Rey – they’re just friends. Finn is a storm trooper, so he doesn’t really know what’s going on. So the romance thing is something that’s going to be interesting in the next installment. It’s not going to go the way you think it’s going to go.

It’s important to note that ‘unexpected’ was being used as shorthand - looking at it in context again, it’s perfectly possible John was just reiterating that FinnRey wasn’t going to happen when he said “It’s not going to go the way you think it’s going to go”. The comment that the romance thing is going to be interesting remains most intriguing, however!

anonymous asked:

John said "the romance thing is something that's going to be interesting in the next installment. It's not going to go the way you think it's going to go. JJ said Rey and Kylo will have an interesting relationship moving forward. The databank said Kylo sensed his destiny was intertwined with Rey's. Rian watching to Catch a Thief for the romantic scale and grandeur. He has compassion for her mentioned in the book. Now there will be no romance in TLJ? I'm so confused. This is an absolute mindfuck.

All of those things you listed are canon things that look great for reylo. So keep that in your heart.

This is what Rian said….

Johnson says that The Last Jedi offers “no one-to-one equivalent of the Han-to-Leia, burning, unrequited love. In our story, that’s not a centerpiece.”

The journalist was the one that mentioned reylo. Rian didn’t actually say “no romance” he just said that it wasn’t the centerpiece. We are just looking at a slow burn here. I mean Kylo’s basically already there, we just need Rey to start feeling compassion for him.

TLJ will most likely explore his tragic backstory and the beginnings of his redemption. This will go hand in hand with the enemies to friends to lovers trope. They will have compassion for each other and will probably end up fighting against Snoke together.

Romance in 9.
