A Gentle Reminder
JJ Abrams [co-writer and director of Episode VII] has said that Rey and Kylo Ren’s narratives are important to each other, that their stories were the main focus as well as inspiration behind the title, The Force Awakens, and that they should be watched closely/read into more.
Given that information, it’s perfectly normal for one to favor and find more meaning in Rey and Kylo Ren as a pair.
Their appeal doesn’t stem from being one dimensional caricatures, but from being fully realized, complex characters with depth and vulnerabilities. Their mysterious interactions and their unconventional hero/villain dynamic ignited intrigue, and it’s fairly safe to assume that the greater majority who love them together do so for what they could become in a story that is well known for having the central themes of redemption, compassion, and hope.
The war is not their relationship, and Lucasfilm would never have Rey and Kylo Ren become canon if they weren’t being developed extensively, especially as one of [if not] the most contentious connections they’ve taken on.
What I’m trying to say is this: there’s nothing wrong with shipping Reylo, whether it’s canon in the end or not, because Rey and Kylo Ren were purposefully made to be the draw of our attention.
This has been a gentle reminder~
