The Tangled Thread of Fate - The Beauty and the Tragedy of the Bond Between Kylo Ren and Rey
This post will contain extensive spoilers for The Last Jedi - consider yourself warned!
Before the release of The Last Jedi, very interesting language was being used to describe the connection between Rey and Kylo Ren. Rian Johnson called them “two halves of our protagonist”, and the Star Wars Databank described their “intertwined destinies” and mutual fascination. While the period prior to the film’s release saw fandom wars waged over the implications of these descriptions and what they meant for the characters going forward, The Last Jedi has finally given us some answers.
Leigh Bardugo books: “I would come for you. And if I couldn’t walk I’d crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we’d fight our way out together - knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that’s what we do. We never stop fighting.”
Also Leigh Bardugo books: “my ghost won’t associate with your ghost.”
1.Goes on a blood soaked conquest of a the Nine Realms early in his reign, raises his first born daughter to be the perfect weapon, and then suddenly decides “Nah, fuck it I’m bored”. When his daughter understandably is confused by this and doesn’t know how else to react, Odin decides instead of teaching her a new way, he instead tosses her in a magic prison to inevitably fuck over everyone in the future with his naturally upset daughter
2.Raises Thor as a complete dick in the first place then banishes him and then pretends to have planned the entire humility thing with Mjolnir once Thor returns a better man
3.Constantly shitting on his adopted son Loki by playing favorites with Thor. Why the fuck even bring him home then? Just pawn him off on another family.
4.Let’s make this vault filled with incredibly dangerous artifacts really easy to enter with next to no security
