Second viewing snippets

Rey straight out lied about the Force Bond to Luke, the first time they Forceskyped. Despite the fact that the Force bond all but gave away Luke’s location to ‘the enemy’. Apparently, Kylo Ren also didn’t quite run to Snoke to confess there’s a girl in his head, the one who beat him. They both had an unspoken conspiracy immediately. Each other were the most ‘their’s’ they had, something precious and to be protected. I can’t with these kids!

“You have bewitched me body and soul and I love, love, love you.”

Freaking Pride and Prejudice AU cus even if I’ve already read the book ten times I only got to see the movie (2005) this week and it reminded me of how much these two OTPs of mine are similar.
Also, this is just a sketch that I was planning for an Extra but I ended up putting some effort in cus the sky is falling over here and so does my internet, what rsults in a bored person needing distractions.

(And I’m sorry its not Harry Potter)
How is this movie even real?

Literally me, after watching TLJ… I got so, so many thinky thoughts and feely feels… They jumble, and rush, and jump around, and overwhelm and it’s pretty much Christmas and my birthday or what!

***************************SPOILER ALERT******************************************

***************************SPOILER ALERT******************************************

I mean… c’mon… besisdes all the heavy shipper-dream-come-true Reylo lifting (oh my, they ARE kinda more of Rey and Ben through all of this) that has already been mentioned and discussed at length - he’s KNEELING in the end, looking up at her… Again, like the very first time… Like the knight he is… He’s pleading with his eyes (oh, those teary, watery eyes! the angst! oh my heart!), and he phisically shudders as she shuts the door. He - the de facto Lord of the Galaxy - is pleading and humbled by his Scavenger, his perfect opposite, his significant other (I mean, he literally says this, it’s TEXT!). This woman of his. His one in five billion (sorry, wrong OTP, but you know what I mean!). His destined. His queen, his goddess. And she looks down on him - stern, and disappointed, and more sad than anything. We’ve seen her look down in rage and haterid - it ain’t it. This is a woman letting know her man he’s gonna be sleeping on the couch tonight. They are soooo… man and wife in that last Force scene (it’s not just shipper goggles talk, it’s literally my critical take-away from this scene). 

 And if the throne room dialogue is not Anakin and Padme on Mustafar all over again, but in reverse - I don’t know what a parallel is, then! 

“And together, you and I can rule the galaxy! We can make things the way we want them to be! -…- Anakin, you’re breaking my heart! You’re going down a path I cannot follow!” 

Except, whereas that was the end of the road for Padme and Anakin, it’s just the very beginning for Ben and Rey. And they know and see into each other a lot deeper already (!!!!!!), and know the power of each other, the depth of light and shadow. And you know what follows after Mustafar, right? The birth of Force Babies =)  Dear Force, this saga could use a couple or five kids having been born and raised by their biological parents in a loving household, not stowed away, not lied to, not abused, not abandoned, not rejected, not feared for the potential of their power, not burdened with legacy, but cherished, and guided, in balance.

In a true to form Darcy fashion (because oh my, is he a Fitzwilliam effin’ Darcy!), Ben would probably save not Rey, but some resistance mission, important to her, maybe he’s gonna save Finn, discretely (because we already know he’s gonna tear the world down for her). And not let her find out, but then she does, of course. 

Okay, now I really want for Ben to keep showing up in the Force Bond, with that wounded puppy look on his face, maybe calling out to her, or monologuing in the true Skywalker fashion, or even getting agitated, and Rey would just pointedly ignore his longing stare and go about her business. The Force equivalent of her not answering his calls and texts, for the time being. 

I really really want Hux to orchestrate a coup to overthrow Supreme Leader Ren, because Hux is quite obviously in on the fact that Kylo Ren’s heart is soooooooo not in the First Order. I’m not sure how such a force of nature as Kylo’s power can be contained, but somehow, he’s in confinement and up for execution. Or maybe he’s resigned to it, because Rey won’t have him, so what’s the point. So he goes through the Force Bond to see Rey one last time. And she’s had enough, and tears into him, goes full-on nuclear Elizabeth-Bennet about all the ways he’s a conceited son-of-a-bitch, and in the wrong, and failed his better self, and failed Leia, and herself more importantly. Except, she can’t see his surrounings (I think there’s a plot point in there somewhere), so she doesn’t know he’s imprisoned. Long story short, it’s execution time, but the flagman ship gets ripped to shreds, as Rey shows up in the nick of time, lightsaber blazing, and makes her way through the First Order troops single-handedly, and there’s got to be a priceless look on Ben’s face, and even more priceless on Hux’s. So Rey rescues Ben to safety (’cause, I do firmly believe, the message for the next movie is voiced by Rose - “we gotta not fight who we hate, but save who we love”), but nope, she’s still not on speaking terms with him, no sir. They probably kiss at that point. 

I have a huge qualm with the fact that Ma Leia didn’t go out to talk with Ben. Not once. Judging from his all but deranged, clearly traumatic reaction to Luke, that boy firmly believed his entire family, all his loved ones gave up on him. He pretty much became the walking, breathing self-fulfilling prophecy. How did it come to this, oh the Glorious Trio, Saviors of the Galaxy? 

If Leia is going to pass into the Force offscreen, oh how do I want Rey Force Bond stepping in on Ben collapsed in a heap on the floor, sobbing. And Rey kneeling beside him, touching throung the Force for the second time (resting a palm between his shoulder blades, or touching his hand). 

Gotta love the fact that throughout the story the Force pretty much goes - "Oh, for Yoda’s sake, just kiss already!” While we’re at it - I do think all of the Galaxy, Resistance and the First Order alike are gonna be byuing first row tickets to the epic push-pull dance of Kylo Ren and Rey and be like, oh just get a room or get married or something. I can see Storm Troopers bonding with X-wing pilots and drinking games and wagers going around as Ben and Rey yell and swing at each other in the throne room, or on a base, and there’s furniture flying around, and electric circuits going toast and possibly pieces of scenery colliding. 

The Force has got it before Rose did

Rose Tico, bless her, spelled out THE message of the new trilogy (maybe of the entire saga) for us: ‘This is how we win - not by fighting what we hate, but saving what we love’. And mind you, it may (and most likely won’t) have anything to do with winning the war. There are not very well winning sides there, it’s all about cause vs. cost - the second installment is quite clear on that, but I degress.

So, the Force ITSELF pretty much spelled the same truth for our favorite idiots in love - through a show, not tell. When Ben saved Rey and Rey saved Ben - they WON. They were glorious, and victorious, and in perfect equilibrium, and just outright awesome. They LOVED that state of themselves, clearly. That was IT. The moment they start fighting (over what they hate) - over ideologies, and viewpoints, and perspectives, and whose side to stand together on - they LOSE. The Force makes sure of that. The lightsaber breaks in two. They lose TO each other AND each other. The Force is quite blatant about it. 

Okay, but imagine Ben’s and Rey’s endgame Pirates of the Carribean-style? 

I know, I know, narratively, theirs is a Beauty and the Beast type scenario. Ben is already an enchanted prince, ‘a monster’, so once the spell is broken,  there’s a happy ever after to proceed into. Whereas Will Turner’s story is the exact opposite.

But just imagine them parting at dawn, having clearly consummated a marriage, impossibly tender and bittersweet. Imagine that’s when he says ‘I’ll come back for you, sweetheart, I promise’. Imagine her watching the Millenium Falcon fly away, her hand pressed to her stomach in that universal stand-in gesture for having conceived a new life. Imagine her step up into the sun to greet the MF return, some time into the future, with a dark-curled boy by her side. 

Me (an intellectual): listening to an avalnche of sappy, oldie love songs - ‘cause they’re so Reylo I can’t even! 

It must’ve been love

Total eclipse of the heart

Listen to your heart

Unbreak my heart (how can I not!)

I don’t wanna miss a thing

On an unrelated note: does Kylo Ren drink? Like, Corruscant vintage, or rare as water on Jakku Alderaan brandy? Supremacy custom brewed rotgut? Sure, it seems like he was subject to quite monastic regimen, but still… My point is - I want the Knights of Ren buddies to take him out for a post-breakup night on the town. Incognito, okay, he’s Supreme Leader now, but they are probably his security detail anyway. I want them to conspire to get Kylo filthy drunk. To let go a bit, maybe score a hook-up (cause pent up more than usual Kylo Ren is gritting on everyone’s nerves). Only to end up with, in fact, a filthy drunk, tearful Kylo Ren who wouldn’t shut up about that girl and make every patron in the canteena Force kneel to pledge knightly allegiance to her. Yes, he does have a holo picture of her on him. Yes, he may have strangled a couple or five patrons for daring not admit at once the Rey girl is the fairest maid in the galaxy.
