Rian Johnson said there will be no romance that is central to the storyline in The Last Jedi – that doesn’t mean there won’t be one at all, and in fact we know a central romance was the plan from the get-go*. Johnson went on to specify the absence of a Han and Leia dynamic, and how there would be no relationship like that.
Reylo is fine.
The Vanity Fair writer name dropped two very popular ships, St//rmpilot, and of course Reylo, when quoting Johnson above. Most people are reading this to mean that these ships specifically won’t happen, when NO WHERE is that said. Period. Reading comprehension is fun!
[Note: St//rmpilot WAS actually debunked by John Boyega and Kathleen Kennedy/Lucasfilm, but Reylo has NEVER been discounted… quite the opposite].
Reylo is fine. 👍
JJ Abrams has said a central romance* was “no doubt” in the works since the beginning, and it has existed before Finn was created. Unlike Jedi Killer [Kylo Ren] and Kira [Rey] who both have been CENTRAL figures since conception.
[Note: F//nnrey was debunked before conception and again a few years later by John Boyega].
Reylo is fine.
The Databank and canon sources [novelizations and commentary] provide irrefutable statements that Rey and Kylo Ren share a mysterious connection, that their destinies are intertwined, that Kylo feels compassion for Rey, that she senses his vulnerabilities, and the hints at redemption keep coming … all of these facets exist to make their relationship THE MOST OPEN TO POSSIBILITIES, and nothing that was revealed in the VF article hinders their potential. They will continue to have “a very interesting relationship moving forward.”
Dennis Becomes the Bar is the only theory we cant poke holes in so far like give me ONE reason they cant have dennis’ sentience transferred into a building for the rest of the show give me ONE reason……
I was on the bus about 3 days ago, just chilling and listening to music and this family came on the bus, the youngest who was about 6-7, kept turning and looking at me even his dad realised and told him not to.
Not even 10 seconds later he jumped out of his sit, ran towards me, I took off my headphones and he was saying “I like your hair, it’s just like mine” and I was like “it’s kool, isn’t it?” He was like “ I like it, it’s just like mine” then he reached out his hand and was like “let me touch” so I leaned towards him and he was like “it’s soft just like mine” with his little squeaky voice lol I heard the biggest “awwww from the back of the bus” and when I looked up everyone was smiling. Looked towards his parents, his mum was smiling and his dad was laughing while saying sorry lool I hi fived him as he was leaving and ran straight back to his sit. Took me out of the numbness I felt that day. I couldn’t stop smiling, everyone couldn’t stop smiling.
(not an art request) What are your thoughts on Malachite? I particularly love her design and I think she's one of the cutest fusions but I dislike what she represents as a relationship. (I thought about asking you this because your text post about why you like Jasper was really insightful and well explained.)
HMMM this is quite a difficult question…
i absolutely LOVE malachite’s design and i think its rad as hell first off. the colors are gorgeous, her short fluffy hair, THOSE MENACING TEETH, the placement of the stripes and swirls on her body, all very good things. shes quite interesting to look at and watching her move and fight is fascinating
buuuut. yeah, ultimately what she represents is a hideous, unhealthy, and to be quite frank, abusive relationship. i know not everyone sees the relationship as abusive, and i respect their interpretation of it, but when i look at the situation it reads loud and clear as abuse to me. its been explicitly said numerous times that jasper was held against her will and tortured by lapis under the ocean for months in malachite. lapis herself even admits she was terrible to jasper and liked taking everything out on her.
the worst part to me is that jasper thinks she deserves the abuse. thats why she was trying to convince lapis to fuse with her again. she’s alone and desperate for any way to make up for her perceived failure on a planet she already has complicated feelings about after having failed her mission and being defeated by the crystal gems on multiple occasions. she needs to do SOMETHING to succeed and thus establish self-worth, and if that means hurting herself in the process she thinks its not only worth it, but well deserved as atonement for her previous failures.
so tl;dr, i love malachites design and shes absolutely stunning to look at and watch move, but i hate everything she represents and the situation that she came about from.
on a somewhat related note, SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP JASPER LOL help her realize shes worth so much more than she thinks she is!!! liiike maybe somebody who knows a little something about learning her self-worth and about helping and loving quartzes
Okay but you know what’s really cute?? In the fancams for when Jinjin takes his shirt off to throw to the audience yesterday, the staff already has a shirt ready to quickly put on Jinjin after letting him dance around a bit. SO DOES ANYONE ELSE THINK THAT JINJIN PROBABLY WAS LIKE LOWKEY BEGGING THEIR MANAGER BEFORE THE CONCERT TO LET HIM TAKE HIS SHIRT OFF LIKE “this is my first solo concert, can I please be a total superstar and throw my shirt to the audience??” AND THEIR MANAGER AGREED TO LET HIM HAVE HIS SHIRTLESS MOMENT TO SHINE AS LONG AS ANOTHER SHIRT WAS BACK ON HIM SOON AFTER AHAOFHOADH even though the child then went shirtless AGAIN with Eunwoo and Moonbin lol bless their kind manager. also apparently Jinjin put confetti on his nipples today LMAOOO ASTROAD HAS GOT ME LIVING
