Reylo Fandom: So this person at Lucasfilms set a lawn on fire with the words ‘Kylo and Rey Will Have An Interesting Relationship’, but then also revealed that Snoke will be wearing a pink feather boa and some crocs. Also, for a second that same employee hinted that Rey hates deviled eggs but that Kylo loves them.
Reylo Fandom: aren’t you worried ????
Me: It’s been nearly two years. Lucasfilms has broken me. If you came and told me it was confirmed that Lucasfilms caused the fall of the Roman Empire, I would probably just sigh and shrug. This fandom explodes and rebuilds itself like a horrific, bickering, eldritch starfish. I’m still not even sure if The Last Jedi is real or if we’ll all shuffle into the cinema on December 15th and see a live action Evangelion reboot acted out by the sequel trilogy cast. Even if that did happen I would still probably sigh, shrug, and be impressed by this bold new marketing strategy.
Give it to me straight. Get to the point. Say it like you mean it. No nitty gritty bullshit, give me the meat of what you are saying.
Ease me into what you’re trying to say. Keep the communication on a practical level. No abstract ideas, ground your words into the earth and I’ll understand.
However you want to explain this to me is good. I am very interested in your words. I can receive this any way you want to explain it.
Communicate it to me in a way that you know I can receive. Your words strike emotional chords in my body. Be gentle as I digest it.
Can you explain this to me in song? Or pictures? Or dance? No? Okay well just make me feel like what you are saying holds relevance to my life and I am open ears. Also.. MAke it exciTING !!
Please lay out the details for me. You speak a word and I find a million questions for clarity. I want to hear and understand everything about what you are communicating to me. Don't be vague.
If you really want me to hear you.. Don't be to brash, or dramatic, or all over the place. Please be concise and balanced with your communication. I appreciate what you have to say, just keep it level headed.
I want to know the truth. Give me the fucking truth. I want to know the depth. What is behind your words? What is your motive with these words? Don't you dare lie to me. I will always find out your truth.
Give me the big picture, the philosophical concept, the dream. Ignite me with your words. Expand my mind with your communication.. I am so open.. Just don't bore me. I need a sense of purpose to listen.
If you want me to take you seriously, know your shit. Communicate factually in a mature manner. If you want me to hear you without judgement, your words must impress me. I don't have time for the wishy washy wandery words. Get to the point.
Please communicate this to me in the most abstract conceptual way you are able. If you want me to receive your communication I need to be met with intellect that causes me to really think over your words.
Explain it to me in a story. I can't understand all of your crazy ass details. I need you to paint me a picture with your words.
