when will you go to tlj

OKAY, so I just read the Vanity Fair Star Wars cover story

and I have stuff to say. about Adam Driver´s statement. for reasons.

So, now we have A LOT of new fabulous photographs and names and more information, which IS AMAZING (oh god, I really hope the “long wait” for more Star Wars material is over and we start to get more and more) YAY! Im SUPER HYPER AND HAPPY ABOUT THE NEW INFO!

However, there was one itsy bitsy little parragraph that seemed inofensive at first but the more I read it, the more I look into it (read: overthink, a common practice among info-starved- Reylos) and the more worried I get for our precious Reylo ship. Also, Im usually super optimistic about Reylo bc I think it will be canon (in one way or another) by the end of the ST. However, when I read the Vanity Fair article, I got a lil bit anxious. (NOTE: Its probably because Adam is SO SO good at hiding Star Wars info and being suuper vague about everything) Also, this got long bc apparently I have a lot of feels, so if you wanna know what I thought of Adam´s words in the article read below :)

How Reylo Can Happen

I’ve had a theory for months but haven’t wanted to post it because I wasn’t sure about it until after TLJ teaser and panel. I will try to keep my explanations short and to the point.

For Reylo to happen, there will need to be extensive character development and storyline between Kylo Ren and Rey. Those familiar with Reylo meta’s and theory have speculated Force Bonds (hearing/seeing each other’s thoughts) and Kylo saving Rey to gain her favor. Well, what if I said that both were possible? But not without a little thing called Halfway Plot Switch and something called Conflict Killer. What are those and what do they mean? Well, let’s go back to the Director himself, Rian Johnson. When asked what movies he watched to prepare for TLJ he mentioned a movie called Letters Never Sent (LNS). Immediately our eyes were drawn to the romantic storyline of this movie but that’s not important as far as Reylo is concerned. What is important is the structure of this film and the tropes within it. Trust me Rian isn’t concerned with the storyline. He is concerned only about how it was executed. 

I won’t go into the details of the storyline of LNS because that isn’t the point. What is the point, is that LNS starts out to be one movie about these geologist setting out to find diamonds, but it turns into something completely different when they are trapped fighting for their lives after a forest fire.

At the TLJ panel Riann and Daisy both state that it’s amazing how this movie starts out and how it actually ends. Daisy threw us a bone and stated (I am paraphrasing) that Rey is meeting her hero but sometimes you shouldn’t because they may not be what you’ve expected.

So, what does all this mean? What the hell am I babbling about? I’m going to warn you now do not read any further if you don’t want to be spoiled. Although yes, I am speculating it might hold more water than you think. Read on at your own risk.

The Last Jedi-Could it be...?

Ok y’all, I’ve watched that new trailer like 4 times now and I have come to a realization. 

So for the most part, the trailer is pretty straight forward. But there is one bit that has everyone scratching their heads. 

“The balance”

When Rey responds with this, we see two images. From what I can guess, the first image is a book shelf in a tree. And the second one is a hand over a faded picture of the Jedi symbol. Now I’ve studied this part so many times, my head hurts. First off, why the f**k are there a few books on what seems like a tree?! And who’s hand is that? Seem like questions with no answers, (at least right now) correct? Wrong! 

Don’t get me wrong, I got no clue what the book shelf is all about. That is an answer I’m gonna have to wait for. But I think know who’s hand is that. Now you might be wondering “How could you possibly know that? It’s just a hand!” You’re right! But look closely. Notice something interesting? This person is wearing a glove. Look even closer, and the glove looks yellow. And who do we know where’s a yellow glove in the Star Wars universe? What’s a major theory going around about this movie involving an unnamed cast member? Mainly this guy:

Oh yeah, you better believe you know where I’m going with this. I believe that our mysterious yellow-gloved hand in the trailer of The Last Jedi is none other than our favorite blueberry child: 

EZRA BRIDGER!!!!

The Last Jedi Teaser Trailer - Reylo bits!

At least this is where I saw them, it’s just my personal opinion ^_^ 

Oh and yes this contains TLJ spoilers, so stop reading now if you don’t want to see anything from the trailer. (I’ve tagged this with spoilers too)

Here we go

——————–

When Rey is asked what she sees by Luke:

We see this shot of Leia, but the key thing is we hear Rey’s theme as she says  "Light”

Then she says “Darkness” and Kylo’s theme plays while we see his broken mask. This shows the connection between Kylo and Rey and we’ve seen the parallels in their music themes before in TFA. 

What I like about the smashed mask is that it is very obviously on a First Order ship or base, due to that lighting in the background. There is glass everywhere as well, so could he have smashed it up in one of his trademark rages? Could it be something Snoke asks him to do? Did he ask him to kill Rey? Is this the start of his redemption?

Then she says “The balance” and we see a shot of ancient books in a tree. I believe this hints that at the very least Kylo and Rey will come together to bring balance the Force and follow a new path. Something like Grey Jedi, who don’t shun connections, which means Kylo and Rey would be free to have a relationship. ^_^. 

Like Snoke says in TFA “The new Jedi will rise” if the Resistance find Luke… and he was right it seems. Luke wants to end the Jedi, but he is still training Rey, so I think he wants to create a new order that balances both the light and the dark. We know from the TFA novel that Kylo has both the light and dark within him and we see that Rey has dark in her when she strikes Kylo down on Starkiller base. Basically these two are the perfect pair to bring balance to the Force.

Incidentally I think these books may be those Journals of the Whills that appear in the EU and may be connected to the religious order that Chirrut and Baze belonged to in Rogue One. I also think that Bendu in Rebels may have a connection to the Whills and original teachings of the Force. There has been a lot of emphasis on light and dark coming together and a middle way in Rebels. Not just the bendu, but Ezra and Darth Maul combining holocrons etc.

Here we have Kylo, (looking hot as hell might I add!) I think he is facing Rey here because in the reflection of his eyes, I think I can make out the red dot of his lightsaber glow and a smaller blue dot which might belong to Rey’s lightsaber

Rey running into battle, I think Luke has sent her to finish Kylo (just like Snoke sends Kylo to kill Rey), but neither of them are going to be able to kill the other because they feel connected and dare I say it “are attracted to each other” ^_^ 

OK and the last Reylo moment for me is this shot of the Milennium Falcon. This is more of a headcanon but……

The Falcon is on Ahch-To and it looks like it is indeed flying over the ocean world. The First Order are attacking it, which could mean Kylo brings more than his Knights to deal with Luke and Rey (somehow I don’t think thats his style) It could be just Chewie in there, but I like to think it is from late on in the film…

Basically I think Kylo lands early in the film and he and his knights are defeated by Luke. Kylo ends up stranded on Ahch-To and connects closer to Rey. Both confide that they are unsure of their masters, have been lonely children etc. By the end of the film Snoke sends in the cavalry to collect Kylo, but instead he and Rey just flee Ahch-To together in the Falcon. The last shot in the film would be Rey and Kylo in the cockpit of the Falcon giving each other lingering looks before going to lightspeed….. roll credits!!!!!!

Basically I loved the trailer and have watched it 20 times. It feels in tune with so many metas and discussions the Reylo fame have written about since TFA. 

Do all of you remember how worried we were that we wouldn't see Kylo unmasked and sporting his new scar until the movie's release and then what did Disney just go and do? they just dropped his picture causally before the trailer even came out, and now we have multiple images of his face and scar and it's only April!

Thank you lucasfilm and Disney !

Hi! I've been secretly shipping Reylo since December 2015. I'm always on the tag and I love how creative the fandom is. The reason I'm not public about it is because I have problems on dealing with hate (I was diagnosed with depression when I was 12). I think that after TLJ I'm going to ship it for real, but I'm afriad shippers might reject me because of what I'm doing right now :( any advice? (Sorry for my bad English)

Hi, well done for being brave enough to get in touch! I’m sorry you have felt so nervous about engaging fully with Reylo fandom, though I totally understand your reasons (the anti hate can get very vicious, and unfortunately it is a fact of life that you just have to deal with as a Reylo shipper). 

If anyone judges you or makes you feel unwelcome for hiding your interest in Reylo prior to TLJ, that is their problem, not yours. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being more cautious and taking time to embrace a ship publicly, and you should be treated as just as much a part of the Reylo fandom as any other shipper. 

I hope that makes you feel better! You have nothing to feel bad for, and I have my fingers crossed that you’ll feel very welcome in the Reylo fandom when you decide you’re ready to fully embrace it. 

(P.S. Please don’t apologise for your English! It’s very good indeed!)

anonymous asked:

the antis are back at it again! remember when they sent (and still send) all the reylos death threats bc someone photoshopped a pic of john boyega and daisy? and the person apologized? well now they made a crappy edit erasing kylo and putting finn on the tlj poster and are spreading it everywhere. i really try to understand, being a multishipper myself, but this is getting ridiculous.

Even if they try to do some ridiculous nonsense, canon is canon is canon. This is like going back in time and trying to convince yourself that Vader is not Luke’s father- you can yell it to the heavens, scream it into a piece of paper, photoshop it into whatever poster you want to your ass’ content, but the fact is, Luke, Kylo and Rey are on a poster for reasons that have to do with the story and not what some 13-year-old whines about wanting on the internet because  they think they, somehow, have the ability to convince a giant mega-franchise like Star Wars that their opinion is word and law. 

I don’t care what the stupid antis say, or do, or try to do, they are just continuously embarrasing themselves and making their respective ships look bad (unfortunate for the good people of the ships who don’t dabble in such petty squabble because they, to put it bluntly, can’t get their way). That gorgeous poster, the content in the trailer, and the lore behind The Last Jedi has been determined, preset, filmed, shot, edited and approved by KK, JJ, and Rian Johnson, and I am sitting here, with my cabernet sauvignon, my take-home shrimp BBQ (we had a spring/Easter BBQ at work today for the new employees) and enjoying the fact that no matter what anyone says, it is what is is.

Poe, Finn and Rose will have their own side of marketing and it will be as exposed as Rey, Luke and Kylos. For marketing purposes I feel that it was a smart move to contain each separate plot line for their own atmospheres because as we all learned from the prequels, too many “tones” at the same time are detrimental to keeping a story together. I feel that Finn, Rose and Poe’s plot line (entangled with Leia, Laura Dern’s character, and Benicio’s character) will have their own adventurous, action-packed mood vs Luke, Rey, and Kylo’s darker, more mysterious mood with the Jedi’s history and the Force. 

I trust antis should realize that Luke and Kylo are important characters too? You know, the main hero of the OT? And the son of his beloved twin sister and best friend? Or are they just completely blinded of reason? (I’m guessing the latter, it’s obvious in both image, marketing and advertising and their feelings are just getting in the way). They still think Kylo is unimportant and that Rey is somehow relate to Luke (despite consistent evidence pointing towards a very strong “NO”) but I mean, not everyone has the same capacity for common sense and that’s okay. I just think they look hilarious trying to get their shit together.

Is it bad that I ship Finn/rose? John and KMT are so cute when they interact, and they have such good chemistry. I just hate how Reylo shippers support finnrose, and I am also still finnrey and finnpoe

is it ok to ship stormpilot and rey x rose (kmt’s char)

It is not bad that you ship them. I’m a big fan of Stormpilot and aroace Rey. AND Finnrey’s got probably the best chemistry I’ve seen on screen. I love both of those and Jedistormpilot (Finn/Rey/Poe), and I support all three (Finnrey a little bit more but shh). It’s not bad liking other pairings besides Finnrey. The problem is: why do you like those ships better? Do you just don’t want to see the black guy with the white girl? Do you actually support Finn/Rose or Rey/Rose? What makes you like them better than Finnrey when they have never interacted?. Rose hasn’t even been introduced yet, what makes her better ‘shipping material’ than Finn? 

And it goes both ways. How are you interpreting Rose? Are you oversexualising or desexualising her with your shipping? What kind of personality are you giving her and why? How do you imagine her and her dynamic with Finn or Rey and why? Is this also hurtful to Finn, in the case of Rose/FInn? Are you completely erasing Poe from this? Why? Why do you like the character that’s not introduced better than him, too? 

I completely understand the hype over Rose, I mean, who was the last WoC in Star Wars? She’s the first important one! Of course we’re all going to love her! But let’s not forget the other characters, either. Let’s not hurt them when we’re celebrating Rose. Let’s not hurt Rose with our good intentions. 

That’s, at least, my take on this. I’m super excited for Rose, but that’s no excuse to be, let’s put it mildly, mean to Finn and Poe and Rose herself with this. 

There is no need to overthink those pairings that much, they will most likely be good once TLJ is out. But consider why you like them, why we recieved not one but two asks wondering if it’s ok to ship it. And about that, if you need to ask then it hits me as if you feel guilty about something… why’s that? What’s got you so cautious that you feel it’s problematic? Think about your motives as much as the rest of the things I said.

Multishipping has always existed in fandom and it’s not bad, you can like and support more than one thing, but don’t bring one down to defend the other one. Don’t hurt Finn to change him for Rose, and don’t be like the Reylos and ship Finn/Rose so that Rey is ‘free’ of Finn, and don’t trash Finnrey.

Mod A.

Okay, so. This is a choice I’ve been thinking about for a while now, and I feel like ultimately, it’s the best decision for my mental health.

I’m quitting Tumblr. Okay, well, I’ll keep my account up in case I ever decide to come back, but this blog is going to be put into “deactivated mode” until such time as I feel ready to return. It’s just that being around here has been draining lately, and at the end of the day, I just…don’t get as much enjoyment out of this website as I used to. I think somehow, it’s contributing to my depression and anxiety. (My hair-pulling has gotten worse lately, and devoting my time to this blog certainly hasn’t helped.) It’s unhealthy the amount of time I spend online. I have to move on and work at getting my life in order. I hardly feel like I’m in a good mood these days, and it’s not fair to me or you guys that I’m more bitchy than I should be. 

I don’t blame my followers. I love the mutuals I’ve met on here, and I wish everyone all the best. If you want to stay in touch, I’m going to be on and off my Twitter account, and if you’re not on Twitter, you can IM me here and we’ll work something out. It’s been real great interacting with y’all, and hey! Maybe I’ll come back when something big happens in Star Wars news, or possibly when TLJ comes out. That depends on what outcomes the movie brings, though. 

Until then: MTFBWY. 

I just saw someone taking to task Mark’s comments about Luke and Leia being there for Han’s death. Which, I still have a problem with because Han shouldn’t have died and also, uh, why would the two Force users sit on the sidelines while Han deals with Kylo but it’s still ahead of what was on the screen which had zero impact…but this article trotted out, one more time, the complaints of Michael Arndt, Abrams and Kasdan about bringing Luke into the plot too early (so totally unlike bringing Han in early or having Luke all over TLJ, y’know)

If I see ONE MORE ARTICLE about how poor JJ and Larry couldn’t put Luke into TFA earlier, or put all three of them in TFA because it would “overshadow” the new kids, I’m going to turn into Hannibal Smith and burn some shit down:

They’re getting PAID to do this. Look, that’s like me saying to you “I can’t do this” except when I say this in my job, it’s because it’s ILLEGAL. There’s no damn law against putting Luke in the movie or putting them all together.

Because what the hell is Han doing in your movie except exactly what Luke would have done if he was in it that early? 

Also, and I was guilty of believing this early on, but SHOW ME IN WRITING where Ford was there for one movie. 

And even if he WAS - FFS, you can’t put them in a scene together? The way people talk about it, it’s as if the movie was handed down from a Supreme Being like the Ten Commandments. It wasn’t. 

If the old characters overshadow your new characters, then you better look in the mirror and adjust YOUR writing! 

People nod along, sagely, saying “it had to be.” “It’s better that way, more dramatic.” “Oh, it’s more tragic that Han dies that way.” “Life is fucking hard and Jedi was a bullshit happy ending and this corrects it.” And so on, and so forth, until I just want to ask…

If George Lucas had made Force Awakens, what would you have said?

I can safely predict that I would have logged onto the Internet when I got home from the movie and the entire thing would have been full of “George ripped off himself” “He killed Han Solo!” “He broke up Han and Leia!” “He made Luke a failure - why?” “Why were Luke, Han and Leia never in a scene together?”

But because it’s JJ Abrams, all I see is “Oh, he’s revived Star Wars! He took it out of the hands of that awful George Lucas and just made it modern!”

Yeah. Not so much.

anonymous asked:

about maz kanata's line to rey, "they are never coming back..." you say it sort of resolves the answer of luke not being rey's father, but how would maz know that? how would she know if luke had a child or not? she's a friend of han's, but i don't think she knew luke. knew of him, obviously, but what would be your reasoning on how maz would know?

you’re coming at this from the wrong angle. here are the pertinent lines

                          REY
           Don't give up. He still might show
           up. Whoever it is you're waiting
           for. Classified. I know all about
           waiting.
          BB-8 BEEPTALKS a question.

                          REY (CONT'D)
           For my family. They'll be back.
           One day. Come on.
          She tries to force a smile, but can't, really. She heads
          off. BB-8 BEEPS... then heads after her.

here rey says that she’s waiting for her family. we also know she was old enough to remember them when she was left so whoever left her she identifies as her family

later

                          REY
           You're offering me a job.

                          HAN
           I'm thinking about it.
          Rey wants to say yes. But something stops her. A line she
          can't cross.

                          HAN (CONT'D)
           Well?

                          REY
           If you were, I'd be flattered. But
           I have to get home.
          Han looks at her, questioningly.

                          HAN
           Jakku?
          Rey looks off, in thought. Yeah, Jakku.

                          REY
                          (BEAT)
           I've already been away too long.

later

          Finn heads off. Rey gets up to follow. Maz dials her lenses
          back to normal, and turns to Han.

                          MAZ
           Who's the girl?

later

                          REY
           I have to get back to Jakku.

                          MAZ
           Han told me.
           (reaches out, hold REY'S HAND)
           Dear child. I see your eyes. You
           already know the truth. Whomever
           you're waiting for on Jakku, they're
           never coming back. But... there's
           someone who still could.

                          REY
           Luke.

                          MAZ
           The belonging you seek is not behind
           you. It is ahead.

so maz asks han who the girl is and han tells her [something we don’t know, damnit jj, but it involves that rey wants to go back to jakku].

then based on what han told her and her force eye powers she tells rey that REY already knows the truth, and that truth is that whoever she’s waiting for on jakku are never coming back. and we know she’s waiting for her family. ergo, rey’s family are never coming back

moving onto the next part: “but there’s someone who still could. luke”. and the stuff about belonging being ahead. the word BUT implies it’s someone DIFFERENT from rey’s family, and that someone is identified BY REY as luke. rey herself identifies luke as someone who is not her family. this is supposed to tell us that what rey wants so badly– a sense of belonging, a family– is going to come from someone who isn’t her family: luke. and finn tbh, i mean don’t forget this scene

                          REY
           Finn. What are you doing here?!

                          FINN
           We came back for you.
          She is speechless -- this is all she's ever wanted anyone to
          do. Chewie TALKS -- and Rey's eyes nearly tear up.

finn is her family now. as was han for a short time. tfa is about found family– for her, for finn, for han and leia who lost a son, and in tlj, for luke, although we have yet to see how that plays out. (daisy also said that rey and luke’s relationship in tfa is about when you “meet your hero”).

and remember that the writers KNOW rey’s origins. so get inside the writers’ heads. why would they choose to write that maz scene? why would they put in the effort to have a major part of the movie be rey learning to let go of the past (her family) and recognize that she has found a new one?

so what IS rey’s backstory?

well, jakku is important for multiple reasons. it was part of palpatine’s contingency plan (look it up on wookieepedia) and there was a big battle there after episode 6 that resulted in ships with salvageable parts being left scattered. so a system of scavenging these parts was set up by a hutt businesswoman named niima– hence, niima outpost. which is where unkar plutt operated, exchanging food portions for parts. we see plenty of people in this system, essentially in indentured servitude being payed way less than the worth of the items they scavenge.

when rey was five she was left with unkar plutt (he’s the one holding her arm in the flashback) implying she was sold into this system of near-slavery. it doesn’t really seem like she was left there to “keep her safe”… i mean barring a harry-left-with-the-dursleys situation lmfao. but overall it seems to me more like she’s just one of many people who found themselves in this system.

what else is on jakku? the church of the force village where lor san tekka, an old friend of luke and leia’s, retired, and has a clue to luke’s location. and then both poe and kylo ren show up at the same time to get it. at no point during these proceedings does anyone seem aware of rey– ie, it doesn’t seem like lor san tekka was watching over her like obi-wan was with luke. i’m gonna go ahead and say that it’s meant to be a coincidence rey is on the same planet. well, not a coincidence, as they have given us good reason for both important and unimportant people to be there. it’s actually genius writing tbh.

SO i will entertain the idea that rey is luke’s daughter now. how does that fit in to everything we’ve established? well, since she was five years old when she was left there, i’m gonna rule out a scenario where she’s stolen from luke AT THAT AGE because everyone would know he had a five year old daughter who was stolen. then there’s the fact that there’s about 10 years between rey being left on jakku and the destruction of luke’s jedi. she would be 14 at the time this happens so i’m also ruling out her being one of his original students who was somehow saved from the purge, because the timeline is a decade off. i’m also ruling out him keeping her a secret, again this was years before anything went wrong so i don’t understand WHY or HOW he would or could keep it a secret.

so what else is possible? maybe the mother never told luke she was pregnant and left before there were any signs. maybe luke knew she was pregnant but then she left, or was kidnapped, or had to leave, or ran away.

and then what? she had the daughter of the most famous person in the galaxy. she raised her for five years without anyone knowing. said daughter had a good impression of her childhood. and then the mother left the daughter on jakku to be a slave. wait, what? k that makes no sense. backtrack. maybe the mother got in some kind of trouble– bad people found out who rey was, and she HAD to … leave her on jakku to be a slave? i guess? or maybe she went there to find lor san tekka but something happened and she had to leave rey? idk. my problem with any of these scenarios is that it’s not natural to write them. i can come up with them if forced to explain reysky being left on jakku by her mom, but i would never write that in the first place. and the writers– lucasfilm story group, and jj and michael arndt and lawrence kasdan– they weren’t writing this because they were forced to come up with an explanation to a fan theory, they were writing whatever they wanted from the beginning.

i mean the very origin of this scenario, luke having s*x with a woman who then leaves before he knows she’s pregnant, barely makes sense in the first place. was it a one night stand type situation? he doesn’t seem like the type. or did they fall in love but then she left or had to leave or something? in that case wouldn’t leia and han know that he had a significant other? if not then he kept it a secret. why would he keep it a secret 10 years before anything went wrong? you know? like it’s just so contrived.

not to mention that rey remembers a family, not just one person. i highly doubt they would have her say “my family” instead of “my mother” if it was just her mother so there were probably other people. maybe the mother found a new husband (or wife…) before rey was young enough to remember. or maybe rey was stolen from the mother and the people she thought were her family were impersonators? or the mom was killed, or died in childbirth? but i’m getting off track because that really seems too complex and i don’t think they would fridge the mom like that

and who even would the mother be?! why is literally no one even mentioning this? do you think kathleen kennedy’s ass would let a white woman go unnoticed like that? in ANY reysky scenario luke had a CHILD with SOMEONE. the mother is CRITICAL. and imo the mother is where reysky as a theory falls apart. it’s just… so impossible. lol like MAYBE at first he was trying to follow the old jedi code so he kept his significant other a secret, and then she left. MAYBE. but that still brings us back to how the mother ended up leaving rey on jakku in that horrible situation. but like this is why i’m critical of reyskys’ motivations. if she’s luke’s daughter i want to know every detail about the mother and how rey ended up where she did. but reyskys are always just like “she’s a skywalker” and leave it at that.

and that’s what’s funny. a year and a half ago EVERYONE was SO SURE rey was han and leia’s daughter. LMFAO. talking about how rey was dressed like han and her full name was kira rey solo and whatnot. like there was a reason for that: it would make no sense for luke to have a secret daughter AND baby mama. and everyone knew it. this is why it’s hard for me to take reyskys seriously. anyway

(also one last thing, before tfa came out we had no idea who kylo ren was. when, in the movie, we found out he was han and leia’s son, that was a reveal, a twist. THAT was the secret skywalker child moment. that’s the whole point, they DID reveal a secret skywalker but it was the villain!)

SOOOOOOOOOOOO ANYWAY reigning it in– if the writers did intend for rey to be luke’s daughter we’re back to our original question of why they would do that maz scene. see where i was coming from now? if your intention as a writer is for her to FIND HER FAMILY at the end of the movie, why would you have a major character moment be her realizing her FAMILY IS NEVER COMING BACK, but the very person she finds at the end of the movie still could. do you see how illogical that is? the ONLY possibility is if they’re using it as a technicality, like her MOTHER is never coming back but her FATHER still could… but… it just seems so unlikely to me that that was their motivation when writing that scene. you wouldn’t in your head have this whole important backstory about her mother raising her and then being forced to leave her because something goes wrong, and then write it off like that. in my onion, that scene only makes sense if, as a writer, rey’s backstory is that she was left by random people for whatever reason, and you want to show that she needs to let go of that hope because her new family is right before her eyes.

so it’s not about whether maz would know or not, it’s that we’re never meant to assume that it’s a thing for maz TO know in the first place.

as usual, and i can’t believe i have to announce this every time i say i’m a rey random, but i’m pro finnrey, pro jedi finn, anti reylo.

“Obviously, he doesn’t even know who she is.” is what Daisy Ridley says in an interview when talking about Luke. And hasn’t it been said before that Rey’s parents don’t appear in ep7?

Idk to me Rey being a Skywalker is not interesting. We already have enough Skywalkers; Luke, Leia, Kylo Ren/Ben Solo. On the other hand I love the theory behind Rey Kenobi. Not just because I like Obi Wan or the similarities, but because where there is Kenobi, you will always find Skywalker not far behind, and I feel it would tie up pretty well.

Either way, no matter which direction they go with Rey’s parentage I’m excited to see tlj. I know antis are desperately hoping for Rey to be a Skywalker so that reylos will disappear, but I for one won’t abandon ship.

I can't wait to see Wonder Woman! Unfortunately, I'll have to see it alone because no one in my family likes sci-fi or super hero movies. Usually, I don't really care going to the movies alone, but I just wish I had someone to fangirl with. I hope when I have a girlfriend, she will go with me. I saw TFA and Rogue One alone and I'll probably see TLJ alone, too.

Seeing movies alone is highly underrated imo because you can just let yourself get wrapped up in the movie. I’m sorry you have to go alone, though. I hope you get someone to go with you! :)

Y’all won’t see me complaining about people “theorizing” over evil Luke anymore. You know why? I know they’re going to be wrong, and it’ll feel great to watch them be wrong in December of this year when I see my boy grace the big screen once more like the bonafide hero he is. 

im going to make a completely baseless prediction about TLJ and episode ix. finn is going to be captured and reconditioned and TLJ will end in  cliffhanger and in episode ix rey will bring him back. and when he snaps out of it he’s going to tear up and say “you came back for me” and then we’re all going to crawl under our theater seats, curl up and die.

13, 19 and 20 please?

Sorry this is such a late response haha

20- any ships you’re a surprised you like?

I’m still surprised I really like Anakin and Padme, when I was younger I violently hated that. I thought it was the laziest dumbest writing. But I dunno, I watched TWC and just got older and was like oh. Yeah, the movies did a shit job explaining it, but it is actually really tragic and powerful and I love them.    

19- Is there a ship you wish you could get behind?

Anything from the new canon movies really. Like I am so violently indifferent about who is going to smoosh faces with who in TLJ. Like yes stormpilot for interracial canon gays. But I don’t really care. And stuff like spiritassassin is cute, but I’m never gonna read fanfiction for it. I’m violently uninterested in rebelcaptain. I don’t know what it is with the new movies but I just don’t care  that much. Maybe its just that one movie isn’t enough time for me to be really invested. Idk.

13- Notps? 

I’m a very ship and let ship person, so I don’t like getting too salty about this stuff (not on public at least). so, take this with a grain of salt that if I’m about to shit on your OTP I’m not like an anti or whatever.

Sabezra is probably my top NOTP for just being hetero nonsense with no chemistry. 

I don’t hate Kalluzeb on principle, but I don’t want to imagine Zeb in a sexual way AT ALL. That’s just crossing a very weird anthro line for me, sorry. 

I think Han and Leia are also a prime example of toxic hetero nonsense, and I’m glad they got space divorced. 

I’m very iffy on Ahsoka/Anakin ships, I just don’t see it man. 

Finn/Rey is another I just don’t see, like yeah they played sappy music behind them in the movie but come on. It just feels like another example of a man and woman in a movie being two feet from one another and of course there’s gotta be sexual tension. ?? no thanks please. 

so hopefully I’m not about to lose followers. Mostly I just hate the hetero nonsense, just because a man and a woman look at each other doesn’t mean they need to fuck.    

anonymous asked:

you know what I can't wait for? When Daisy can FINALLY talk about what she thought was so obvious about Rey's parentage in TFA. How much you want to bet she is just going to list off everything we've been bringing up for over a year now?

I’m SO looking forward to seeing what it is she’s referring to! It’ll be funny to look back at TFA and see how “obvious” things were once we have TLJ to put everything into context, lol.
