So let me get this straight, the official SW account is hashtagging #reylo ? I love this.

It's a good time to be alive as a Reylo shipper

The twirl


There is a theory, that she got it from him through their force-bond.


But there is a huge difference between them there. Kylo is very calm a collected there and Rey is very aggressive and screaming. I really love that about them. How Kylo has the light side - the Jedi mannerisms and Rey the dark side's - more emotional ones.

THIS says, what we've been saying all along. Why Kylo/Ben couldn't stop the attack on the Ressistance and why Rey couldn't accept his offer.

This is an excerpt from a different meta:

"I so appreciate that The Last Jedi really emphasized the weight of individual choices over doing something because of what you’re feeling, over chemistry and sparks etc. [Rey and Ben] have pretty golden chemistry - something innocent and pure and charged with danger all at the same time. But that was never enough to carry them over their differences to a place where they could truly be together and I love that. It’s like a deconstruction of every story that says that feelings are enough and a good enough to reason to cross moral lines and boundaries."

And here's the author's take on it:

"This meta is a great way of looking at why Ben didn’t and couldn’t go with Rey when she asked him, any more than she could accept his offer to stay with him and rule the galaxy – because both of them would have been making that choice for wrong reasons. Until Ben is fully convinced in his own mind that the First Order is evil and that the things he has done are wrong, he will remain a danger to the Resistance, Rey and himself. It would have been equally wrong for Rey to abandon her friends in the Resistance in order to be with Ben and continue trying to turn him – and it would also have sent exactly the kind of horrible message that makes many people fear Reylo as a ship, namely that a woman can transform an angry and violent man into a gentle one simply by staying with him and loving him. She’s done all she can to show him there’s a better way; now it’s up to Ben to decide what and where he wants to be. Feelings are no substitute for principles.

And interestingly enough this same idea also plays out in the B-plot with Poe. His feelings tell him he’s right about Holdo being a danger to the Resistance, and that he’s justified in going behind her back and even leading a mutiny to stop her. And as the audience, we’re so used to seeing the maverick, big-hearted hero defying the established order and saving the day that we are totally suckered into thinking he’ll be proven right. But in fact his gut feelings, however noble they seem to him and others, are totally wrong, and his actions have devastating consequences. To become a true leader, he has to learn to think beyond his own impulse toward big heroic gestures and start thinking about the long-term good of the Resistance – to put aside his own ego in order to serve others. That’s pretty surprising for a Hollywood action movie, and I love it."


I so agree with this

I like that a lot TLJ is breaking all sorts of boundaries and cliches when it comes to relationships and storylines in general.

That's why people are so divided over the movie. Personally, I love where Rian took it

He had a lot of balls to do what he did and I love him for it. This is a movie that turned non-SW fans into SW fans simply because it was an amazing movie, instead of just following the SW formula that only pleases SW fans.

Ultimately I think it gained more fans than it lost. It's just that the fans, who didn't like are very vocal about it.

I think that Reylo has a lot to do with the new fans. I bet a lot of people heard about a new power couple on screen and just had to watch. I admit that sometimes I start watching something just because I've heard about an amazing ship, that's in it. But this wasn't the case. I've wanted to watch Star Wars for a while. Althought I heard something about Reylo even before TLJ

Oh I'm ship-driven and always have been But I didn't expect to go into this sequel and instantly becoming obsessed with Reylo. It really took me by surprise. It's the only SW couple that comes close to Han/Leia to me and Han/Leia is my favorite ship of all time
