I don’t really want to talk about The Rise of Skywalker anymore. I already did that. I could rant for a hundred years about why I want to throat-punch JJ Abrams, why Rose, Hux, Rey, and especially BEN SOLO (yes, I used the shout-y caps) were done really dirty in the film, and why The Last Jedi was superior to TRoS in nearly every way. But I won’t. That’s been done to death (and frankly, it’s hard to get me to STOP talking about it once I start). What I WILL do at this point is recommend some AWESOME enemies-to-lovers romances that might help you get over your disappointment with that dumpster fire of an ending TRoS had.
(Just as an aside, I will say that I am a Reylo. That means I wanted Rey to have a beautiful happily ever after with a redeemed Ben Solo since The Force Awakens. I make no apologies for that. So, if any anti Reylo folks—or old misogynistic white guys who used to jack off to the Luke Skywalker poster in their teenage bedrooms—feel the need to comment on this post with hateful nastiness, I will ban and block you so fast your angry little heads will spin. I have no time for that nonsense. And just to save you some time so that you don’t feel the need to comment with hateful nastiness in the first place: 1) Yes, I realize that Ben and Rey aren’t real people, 2) Yes, I realize that Star Wars isn’t a romance, and 3) Yes, I am aware that Kylo Ren is not husband material, and 4) No, I’m not a racist and I have nothing against John Boyega or the Finn character. There. I said what I said and that’s the end of that. Let’s all be kind to each other now, shall we?)
What about y’all? Anything you’d like to add? Let’s hear it!
