Welcome Diddy! You always put up a good fight in the redemption thread. Yeah I do not understand where the twilight and 50 shades comparisons come from, has a Reylo shipper ever actually referenced those? Seems like an anti way just to be condescending.

Hi and thank you! There are some right condescending pearl-clutchers in that thread!

Yeah, I did notice an undertone of (and sometimes in-your-face) sexism from some quarters over there.
I feel like I am getting a LIL' bit off topic here (and if I am, mods let me know and direct me to the appropriate thread), but that 50 shades tripe actually came from a tumblr user. Basically this dude made a really condescending post shortly after TFA came out, saying we were all 15yr old girls brainwashed into liking abusive relationships by Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey. It gained a TON of notes. Like a TON. It was the most popular anti post on tumblr - 27 000 notes and counting - and ngl it was absolutely rage inducing. It's still up and gaining notes.
That is so idiotic I barely know what to say. Aside from the fact that Rey kicks Ren's butt on more than one occasion - she is far from a damsel in distress - has this dude not heard of gothic literature? Byronic heroes? We don't need people telling us what to find sexy, or what might be damaging. That's so patronizing.
I assume they are living in a medieval state of mind, because reylo is f*****g empowering for women, SHE LITERALLY KICKS HIS a** TWICE!!! [removed] I CANNOT

[quote="Mrs Ben Solo"]  

Well, it's a slow burn kind-of-thing and I'm not sure how explicit the sex scenes will be. I've written M rated stuff before and I personally prefer leaving some things to the imagination. Good smut is hard to write, at least, I think so. I hate cringe-making metaphors and deciding what words to use for private parts. I'm no prude, but a lot of smut ends up being either too descriptive or too blunt for my tastes.

Anyway, if I crack on with my writing, I should be ready to start posting it soon, and then you can all judge for yourselves! Smile

Oh yes, nothing graphic. Erotic is sexier than porn. When I was younger, my dad got a post in Bosnia so we lived there and I can speak Sforza and Arcanah language. Anyway, they played that local movie You Love Only Once (rough translation) and holy smokes that thing had the sexiest sex scenes I've ever seen in my life. Nothing graphic but wow something about the cast, the chemsitry, hard to explain. I don't know. But yeah, graphic is not the way to go.

I love this Isabel Allende quote: "Erotica is using a feather; pornography is using the whole chicken."

I'm definitely in favour of the feather! Wink

Samo jednom se ljubi (sve je ostalo farsa) Vaderito?
Respect my woman Wink


If any of the scenes between Rey and Ren were graphic it would be creepy....the fact that it works so beautifully it's subtext and subtlety

Hi,everyone, nice to see you in a calm corner. I'm Jakku from TJC. I've been startled, the last few days, by how much sneering has come from moderators over there - it's as if they've been offered a bonus if they can run off anyone posting anything positive about Kylo Ren. It's all very odd. It's never clear whether mods are posting as forum police or private citizens, which is unfair to other posters, it seems to me.

I'm from the UK, and earn my living mainly as a newspaper columnist; I write for other media too. Over the years I've lost most illusions about the creative integrity of media types - I assume that many script decisions are taken out of practical necessity and last-minute panic. I know that I've had to do frantic 1am rewrites because the legal department has suddenly decided that something I've written might get the paper sued. Or they need something quick because an advertiser dropped out and they have inches to fill. I have a suspicion that a lot of things end up in finished films because there was a screaming deadline and it was the least bad option - and I don't exempt even a mega-production like TFA.

It will be a joy to discuss Rey and Ren, and Ren's redemption and everything else, without being accused of being a teenage 50 Shades / Twilight fan. Even my children have left their teenage years far behind! Thanks for making this forum.

@Mrs Ben Solo wrote:Good evening all,

Thank you for inviting me to join this forum, I'm fuming over what happened at the other place.

BTW, I was Diddy Minty over there, but I thought I'd go for a change of name on here. Laughing

I joined the other place because it was the first thing that came up when I Googled "Rey and Kylo Ren chemistry." I never thought I would be joining another forum to discuss Reylo or any other ship for that matter! Shocked Laughing

I'm too old for this ****! Contrary to popular belief, I'm not a Twilight loving tween or a 50 Shades of Grey devotee, but a woman in her early 40s! I've been a Star Wars fan for as long as I can remember. The prequel trilogy kinda killed my love for it for a while. But I just re-watched the PT and rather enjoyed it. I certainly have a lot more sympathy for Anakin and Padme now. I wasn't even sure if I was going to bother watching The Force Awakens when it came out, now look at me! Kylo Ren, you have a lot to answer for! Wink Laughing

I look forward to lots more chat with you all.

You're never too old for this! bounce

Lol. I started on Tumblr since I was already there, reyreylo, but it got so annoying to track the tag and see random hate in the tag. Someone started a livejournal group for reylo's but I think only 10 people joined. So I got into the forums and liked it for awhile but yeah you couldn't talk to anyone who wasn't a reylo fan without them discounting anything you said. They don't seem to understand the concept of theories. But whatever.

Hello everybody!

Hi everyone! I'm posting from my crappy tablet so can't put up an avatar yet.

My name is Daria and I'm a Russian-born living in Melbourne. Until TFA I've been a very casual Star Wars fan (Star Trek and more traditional sci-fi is more my thing), but I've been debating and (over)analyzing in various fandoms ever since I discovered internet, and loved fairy tales and myths since I was a little girl. I don't know if I ship Rey and Kylo in a traditional sense, but I sure am fascinated with their dynamic.

Thanks! I was trying to hold off since I have been on the other forum for so long and never had that type of problem even in heated debate threads, but after the bs mod response I just couldn't.

Can't wait to join the reylo fun!

@Darth Rowan

I 'll look through my fav posters list later to see if I can come up with some more people to invite...will send a pm to you if that's ok for you to consider if you want to invite them here...I am not sure about all who post on JCF that their intentions are true even if they do say that they are pro ReyLo
Also are the people who are nice but neccesarily don't ship ReyLo welcome here? They should be imo Very Happy
