The media and general audience catching up with the potential implications of Rey and Kylo’s dynamic is not the same as ants on tumblr pretending they never harassed us and jumping on board as if there’s no harm done. They’re not the same. People who write for the Guardian or GQ and watched TFA once or twice cannot be expected to know about our ship, or what the fan theories have been. They’re not antis, or angry fanboys on forums. They’re just regular members of the audience, and the entire appeal of ‘Reylo’ (for me, at least) is that it wasn’t spelled out in TFA, it was subtext. We can’t expect everyone to have taken the same time as us to analyze the story and speculate as to where it might go. Most people just don’t care that much. You can let that bitterness eat you up, or you can enjoy the fact that it means we were right in broad strokes – that the characters share a connection and we get to see that developed in the rest of the story.
