you leaned over to pick up some of the supplies and when you turned around you grinned at John, knowing that he would have been watching your butt. he made a face at you which pretty much said ‘i know what you’re doing and you’re going to get it later.’ 

which you were totally cool with.

Hey Ohtze! First things first, love your blog! Your posts are fantastic :) I was wondering. Would you be willing to detail why Rey is a great character? I'm witnessing the whole "Mary Sue" thing thrusted on her by some folk, and I feel it's not justified. I tried looking through your archive to find a post related to this topic, and I found you describing her as incredibly nuanced, and I agree. She's competent and skiddish. She's prone to anger, but caring. What do you think?

Oh man, I dunno even where to begin with this. This ask has been sitting in my inbox for months, and tbh now that I’m getting to it my answer will still be short, because moving. It also won’t be very in-depth, so I’m sorry.

I (personally) find Rey to be a great character because she’s not stereotypical. She’s got both masculine and feminine traits, and she’s allowed to be both without the film making a commentary on it. She’s strong, but she’s also allowed to show fragility, which is what real people are like. She’s intelligent and curious and friendly and firm in her convictions. She’s got strengths and flaws. I agree she’s competent and skittish; that she’s prone to anger, but also caring, and I love this dichotomy of emotions we see in her. In TFA she subverts a lot of preconceived notions about female characterization and women's’ roles within genre fiction (see: turning the damsel in distress trope on its head), and I love that.

As for the “Mary Sue” moniker; yes, I agree that its unjustified and false, and stems from a place of sexism (unconsciously or not). A criticism I’ve heard about Rey again and again - related to the Mary Sue slur - is that she’s wish fulfillment. But in reality Rey is no worse than any other male character in genre fiction out there.

Anakin Skywalker, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Indiana Jones, James Bond, Spider-Man, Captain America, Bruce Wayne, Wolverine, Wesley Crusher, Captain Kirk, Sam Witwicky, Richard Rahl, Wil Ohmsford, Simon “Mooncalf” Snowlock, Kylar Stern, John Connor, John Crichton, Jon Snow, John Sheppard, Commander John Shepard, Riddick, Angel, Neo “Thomas A. Anderson”, Kvothe, Malcolm Reynolds, Cloud Strife and Ichigo Kurosaki (the list goes on and on and on) are all forms of “Gary Stu,” and wish fulfillment too.

In the immortal words of @ashesforfoxes, “badass edgelords are always Stus.” The writing is on the wall.
