#cat wants affection so badly #so so so badly #but she has no idea how to ask for it #even with kara she has to start with the pretense of criticizing her hair #pull a face so that kara doesn’t know that cat just wants to be close to her #to reach out and touch her friend while she can #which she does until she realizes what she’s baring in the action #flattens her hand and jerks back when she meets kara’s eyes #and what makes them so perfect #is that kara doesn’t just know what cat’s doing #she understands #kara knows what it’s like to be hesitant to touch someone you care about #cat is scared because of how vulnerable it makes her to show how she needs someone #needs /kara/ #and kara used to be afraid because of how vulnerable other people were to her strength #and so she barely makes cat wait a moment before she pulls her in for a hug #one cat falls into #closes her eyes and breathes out in relief and comfort and connection #and twice now when kara’s squeezed cat tighter with those too-strong arms #cat’s tightened her grip right back

Connecting dots

Hey guys! In light of the new info we got from the databank, i decided to bring together a few things featured in the novelization, in the commentary and sometimes the movie script. Personally, i’m very happy with the consistency between all the canon sources, which makes me believe that there won’t be any lazy plot twists. Before i start, two points:

  • Kylo Ren biography:

Now calling himself Kylo Ren, he served the First Order’s Supreme Leader Snoke. Neither Jedi nor Sith, Kylo used the pain of his emotional conflict to fuel his extraordinary powers, and dedicated himself to destroying the last traces of the Jedi tradition.  

  • Kylo Ren biography (cont.):

Kylo swore his loyalties were only to Snoke. But he was intrigued when he captured Rey, a Jakku scavenger whose Force abilities were raw but very powerful. A mysterious connection seemed to link the two.

This supports what i said here, Kylo indeed uses his pain and conflict to fuel his powers. Plus, the context is rather curious because it sounds like Kylo started questioning his loyalty to Snoke when Rey came into picture. I also stated before that maybe when Kylo offers himself to be Rey’s teacher, he wasn’t including Snoke in his plans. A little bit of validation is always good, right?

Let’s begin:

Kylo Ren biography: 

Landing on Takodana, Kylo confronted the young woman who’d escaped from Jakku with BB-8 – and found himself puzzled by a strange connection he felt with her. Resistance X-wings drove the First Order’s forces away before BB-8 could be found, but Kylo took the young woman, Rey, into custody.

TFA novelization (page 182):

Having circled her, he moved even closer, peering into her face, her eyes. Then the red lightsaber he held came up: close to her flesh, close enough to cast a red glow on her skin.
“Something.” He sounded mystified. “There is something…Who are you?”

Movie commentary: 

And he (Kylo Ren) is letting go of the droid as his goal, and he’s focusing just on her (Rey). And clearly, you think, he can just extract the information he wants now, but because he’s taking her you get the sense there might be something else going on here.

Part 2

Kylo Ren biography:

Speaking with his captive, Kylo removed his mask, revealing his surprisingly young face, and used his powers to dig into Rey’s mind. But both captor and captive were surprised when Rey found herself able to sense Kylo’s own thoughts¹ – including his conflicts and doubts. When Snoke requested Kylo’s presence, he donned his sinister mask and left Rey in her cell. Sneering at Kylo’s weakness, Snoke ordered his apprentice to bring Rey to him².

Rey biography:

Kylo interrogated Rey, using his Force powers to dig into her mind. He uncovered her feelings of loneliness, and the fact that she’d come to see Han as a father figure. But to the surprise of both, Rey found Kylo’s own mind open to her as well¹. She saw that the seemingly fearsome warlord was vulnerable, filled with conflict and pain.

Movie script¹:

THEY’RE BOTH SURPRISED: they react to a feeling that passes
between them – AN ENERGY THEY RECOGNIZE IN EACH OTHER.

TFA novelization² (page 207):

The Supreme Leader’s voice was flat. “You have compassion for her.”
“No—never. Compassion? For an enemy of the Order?”
“I perceive the problem,” Snoke intoned. “It isn’t her strength that is making you fail. It’s your weakness.

Part 3

Movie commentary:

1. This is the moment of course where Kylo Ren learns about Rey. And now, these two disparate pieces come together. 
2.  One of the new relationships that we were focusing on was between Kylo Ren and Rey. They’ve never met but he’s heard of this girl.

TFA novelization (page 251):

“It is you,” Ren murmured.
His words unsettled her: Not for the first time, he seemed to know more about her than she did about herself.

Bonus: 

Kylo Ren biography:

But Rey took up Skywalker’s saber. Rejecting Kylo’s invitation to show her the ways of the Force, she attacked him – and Kylo found he was no match for her power and rage. Rey defeated him, and Kylo escaped Starkiller Base before its destruction. He sensed his destiny and Rey’s were somehow intertwined, but how?

Rey biography:

She rejected this call to destinybut was captured by the dark side warrior Kylo Ren, with whom she shared a strange connection. 

Another curious “but”, if i may say. 

Feel free to add anything that i forgot to mention.

[V+] 170318 Live with Jhope & Jimin

Hoseok started a vlive broadcast to help Jimin talk to international fans. Jimin was feeling sorry that he couldn’t understand the chatroom.

I came to school this morning and I was sure I was supposed to meet someone. But I couldn’t remember with whom. Uh, I was looking for him all day. Whoever he was, I think I loved him.
