Reylo shippers/the people who have the most extensive knowledge of the dynamic of Rey and Kylo: we have accumulated a lot of evidence over the last year+ and studied the film very closely to put into words our interpretation that there is a romantic angle and possibly foreshadowing of a two sided love story in the trilogy between Rey and Kylo.
Most fanboys, news sites and general Star Wars fandom: THAT IS THE MOST STOOPID IDEA I HAVE EVERY HEARD, REY IS SO OBVIOUSLY A SKYWALKER DUH, KYLO KILLED MA FAVOURITE CHARACTER HE CANT BE REDEEMED OR HVE HUMANITY IT MAKES ME UNCOMFORTABLE !!! REYLO SHIPPERS AND ALL FANGIRLS NEED TO BE TAUGHT HOW TO DO STAR WARS PROPERLY-OUR WAY-SO THERE
Mike zeroh: wait a minute guys, hear me out I just came up with a theory, maybe Kylo has compassion for Rey and they could fall in love, after over a year I have come to this sudden realisation
Most fanboys, news sites and general Star Wars fandom:
WHAT AN AMAZING ORIGINAL THEORY MIKE!
If you’re writing a Star Trek fic, and you’re trying to make your representation of the characters as authentic as possible, sure, do some research into their home cultures, but don’t lose any sleep over it.
TOS takes place 200-odd years in the future. How much will the world change in that time? If you want to make Scotty’s favourite food Ma Po Tofu, go right ahead! Just because it’s not a widely consumed dish in present-day Scotland doesn’t mean it won’t be in the distant future. I’m pretty sure Scots in the early 1800s didn’t eat curry, but it’s practically the national food now.
Same for McCoy. He’s from Georgia, but you don’t have to give him traits that are from present-day Georgia. It’s okay if you want him to love bourbon and peach cobbler, but it’s also okay if you want him to love spicy lamb tagine and rice wine instead.
Don’t worry so much about making the details ‘right’ by our current standards, because they won’t mean shit 200+ years in the future. Plus, think of the fun you’ll have coming up with the reasons why the customs and cultures change so much between now and the TOS era.
