ForceTimers | Kylo/Ben♥Rey | Adam/Daisy #17: When An Unstoppable Force Meets An Immovable Object. (Joker - The Dark Knight)

Welcome to the Kylo Ren / Ben Solo Rey
Appreciation Thread





"FOR WHO COULD EVER LOVE... A MONSTER?"

Quote:
KYLO: "You still wanna kill me?" / REY: "That's what happens when you're being hunted by a creature in a mask"



Quote:
REY: "You are a monster" / KYLO: "Yes, I am"



Featuring the lead performances of

{Adam Driver}



and

{Daisy Ridley}









'Journal of the Whills' (Poem extract used in The Force Awakens novel introduction)


"First comes the day
Then comes the night.
After the darkness
Shines through the light.
The difference, they say,
Is only made right
By the resolving of gray
Through refined Jedi sight
."







"Kylo swore his loyalties were only to Snoke.
But he was intrigued when he captured Rey, a Jakku scavenger whose Force abilities were raw but very powerful.
A mysterious connection seemed to link the two."
~ StarWars.com {The Force Awakens}






FOCUS, FATE AND FASCINATION ('THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA' STYLE)

Quote:
KYLO: "The girl I've heard so much about
[...] Forget the droid, we have what we need"
JJ Abrams ('The Force Awakens' Co-Writer/Director): "So the idea here is that Kylo Ren’s gotten inside of Rey’s head, sees that she has seen the map and is now letting go of the droid as his goal, and focusing just on her. And clearly you think, well he must be able to just extract the information he wants now.
But because he’s taken her, you get a sense that there might be something else going on here."







INTIMATE INTERROGATION ('BEAUTY AND THE BEAST' STYLE)

Quote:
REY: "Where am I?" / KYLO: "...You're my guest"
KYLO: "You're so lonely... So afraid to leave... At night, desperate to sleep" / REY: "You... You're afraid"
SNOKE: "And the droid?" HUX: "Ren believed it was no longer valuable to us... That the girl was all we needed"
JJ Abrams: "Because of Vader, I think you expect him to need the mask. That, like Vader, it’s some kind of breathing apparatus, some sort of necessity. But when his mask comes off, you see Adam Driver
[...] And he just looks like a sort of Prince."

Rayne Roberts (LucasFilm): "There's something profound that happens between them. [Lawrence] Kasdan describes it as an "energy" between them, something more than you'd expect."







HONEST IN THE FOREST

Quote:
KYLO: "It's just us, now [...] I could show you the ways of The Force" / REY: "The Force..."
SNOKE: "You have compassion for her. I perceive the problem. It isn't her strength that is making you fail. It's your weakness"
JJ Abrams: "What you really care about is what’s gonna happen in the forest between these two characters who are now alone."
Rachael (JournaloftheStarWars.com) "There is no mention of Snoke or even the Dark side – Kylo is intent only on Rey, and the offer he makes is an offer made between the two of them [...] his regard for and fascination with Rey win out over his duty to Snoke. He selfishly wants her to himself"
Adam Driver: "The title of 'The Force Awakens' wasn’t just referring to the light side, it was the dark side as well."







"Under Luke’s tutelage, Rey learned to feel the Force around her and understand her connection to it.
But as her powers grew, her connection with Kylo strengthened as well –
and Rey became certain that their fates were somehow intertwined."
~ StarWars.com {The Last Jedi}












FRENZIED FORCE FEELINGS

Quote:
KYLO: "You have that look in your eyes, from the forest... When you called me a monster"
LA Times: "I’ve got a catchy name for Rey and Kylo’s sexy “Force connection” sessions for you: “ForceTime.”
Rian Johnson: "I’ve heard “Force Skyping,” but that’s good!""






SENSUAL, SOULFUL STRING OF SIGNALS

Quote:
REY: "It isn't too late."
Blake Howard (Graffiti With Punctuation Blog): "In the wake of Rey and Kylo’s final confrontation in “The Force Awakens” they are inexplicably connected. In this series, we see that their connection allows them to communicate across the galaxy like they’re talking across the room. These interactions feature some of the best and most sorely missed chemistry in the series since “Empire.”"

PARALLELS - SOUL-SEARCHING






PARALLELS - SOMEDAY, MY PRINCE WILL COME





EUPHORIC ELEVATOR ETIQUETTE

Quote:
REY: "You'll turn... I'll help you. I've seen it" / KYLO: "I saw something too"
Kevin Litman-Navarro (Jstor Daily): "You have chemistry with someone because part of that person’s identity is, in fact, part of yours. We recognize this on a metaphorical level in the way we speak of couples. Rey and Kylo Ren become Reylo, and there is no conservation of identity. [...] No wonder #Reylo is #goals. It’s a single thing, a separate entity, decentralized across two minds—a Gordian knot of Strange Loops, braided, intertwined, and inseparable."






TENDER THIGH TOUCHING AND THRONE ROOM THRUSTING

Quote:
KYLO: "I know what I have to do."
Joanna Robinson (Vanity Fair): "I can say no moment draws more audible gasps and applause than when Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren and Daisy Ridley’s Rey whirl around in brief slow-motion, stand back-to-back, and take on a room of their shared enemies together. It’s the sexiest moment in a franchise that already featured a young Han Solo answering Leia’s earnest “I love you” with a smoldering “I know.”
Joseph Schmidt (ComicBook.com): "Seeing the two work together was one of the best moments in the saga."

THE 'PRIDE AND PREJUDICE' PROPOSAL ('NOTTING HILL' STYLE)

Quote:
KYLO: "Rey... I want you to join me. We can work together, create a new order in the galaxy.
[...] You have no place in this story! You come from nothing, you're nothing... But not to me. Join me... Please."
Brogan Morris (Vice): "One of the most beautifully twisted declarations of love ever uttered in a family blockbuster,
before quietly pleading with her to join him like he’s the most desperately lonely person in the universe."

Rian Johnson ('The Last Jedi Writer/Director): "I don't think that he's playing chess there. I think that this is something that he genuinely saw, and genuinely believes that because of this connection [they share], basically.
It's less like, 'I can use this on her.' It's more, 'Oh my god, we have this in common, this is more of a kindred spirit that even she realizes.'"
[...]It's a very naked, open, emotional appeal.
It's his version of, 'I'm just a girl standing in front of a guy'..."

Kevin Smith (Filmmaker/Actor): "You can tell, he genuinely cares about her."

You're welcome


I just realized you'll all probably need to reload the page at least twice to get the full scope of the OP So many gifs


The title refers to two Reylo scenes: 1) The Lightsaber breaking between them 2) The Falcon door closing. The basic message is that The Force is more powerful than the Falcon door (and thus their connection is still there ) and the force was caught between Kylo and Rey in the throne room when they turned against each other


You might have noticed the ship name A few critics have nicknamed Kylo and Rey "ForceTimers" for their force bond scenes. Let me know if you like it


I haven't watched this video yet, but here you all go ~ REYLO BABIES ARE THE FUTURE SKYWALKERS

Sorry In simpler terms, what I meant was, Rey reached for the lightsaber to avoid giving him an answer to his proposal
I understand you now, but I'm not sure, that this is why she reached for the saber. I still belive, that the main reason she did that, was because of the Ressistance.

Both reasons, perhaps? She grabbed it off him in a very stilted, cold, shocking way. It must have stunned the hell out of him.


I still think the lightsaber was the perfect excuse for her to leave without him. She couldn't find the words so she did it with actions, instead.

Maybe. Now I'm wondering what would happen, if she did use words? Would he let her go? I think he might. He wouldn't have the strenght to fight her, I think. Or could have gotten really angry, start a fight with her, but like in TFA, he wouldn't have the strenght to hurt her.

It would have been like Beauty and the Beast, I think, where he's fallen in love with her and she urges him to let her go visit her father It all depends on how Rey would have responded. If she had simply said "I need more time to think about it... Please don't take this the wrong way... I just can't leave my friends to die", I think Kylo might have responded in quite a mature way.


Rey reaching for the lightsaber ignited his fear and frustration. They had just finally found a way to work as a team, so Kylo would have felt deeply betrayed and confused.

Talking to him could have made things better, but with the attack on the Ressistance and his proposal, this seemed like the easiest way out of this. In terms of lack of time and like you said, maybe even avoiding her answer to the proposal. Add to it the probable unability to actually speak in that emotional situation and reaching for the saber seems like a logical thing she did.

I think timing was a big issue It was literally a life and death moment for everyone.


Also, I think Rey knew that The First Order would be on their way to see them after the situation with Snoke turned ugly. They were in a race against time.


I was hoping for a moment where Rey tenderly touches the scar on his face and apologizes for permanently scarring him That would be a beautiful thing to see in Episode IX

And I wanna see her touching his scar so badly Maybe even kiss it? Or before a kiss


I also always wondered what happened, after Rey woke up in the throne room. I have a hard time believing, that she would just left, without at least looking back at him.

Would be great if Episode IX showed a flashback to that scene It's cool that it was left up to the imagination, but I would love it if Kylo actually asked her something like

Quote:
"Were you okay... When you woke up in there? Did you... Stop, to think about me at all? Did anybody hurt you?"
The possibility of Kylo asking her about that is so captivating

Maybe they tell us something in the novelisation, but it would be a real shame not putting it into the movie


It would be amazing, if he asked her


I've been also thinking whou would likely initiate their first kiss, if there is one (and there has to be ) and I think that Rey is more likely to do it. Ben seems to me too cautious and shy. I don't think he would dare.

I definitely feel that it would be Rey, as well Look at how she walked towards him with confidence in the elevator Kylo was like "...Wait, is she...?"
