The shirt has the official SW logo on it so it must! I love how for kylo the falcon is the light and for rey the dark is the death star. That's incredible symbolism.

Did anyone else follow Mar's livetweet of all of SW, including the spinoffs and TROS teasers? It's been like a spectator sport, or a party. It was kind of exhausting vicariously reliving the entire franchise via social media in one long weekend, especially since she was highly emotional, mostly on caps lock, there was drama with her internet freezing, DVD player not working, thunderstorms, haters being crummy to her (especially after the official SW account gave her a shoutout) etc. But it was also the most relatively unifying thing that's happened to SW fandom I can remember. The sheer joy she gave people like nothing else in discourse could. And she understood the stories and characters better than most of the media or highly online fans do. There's too many golden posts to put here. She literally converted people into Reylos without even trying to.

Most of the characters got cutsie nicknames. Rey is Sunflower! Rose is Cinnamon Roll, Finn is Lovebug, Poe is Hot Man Running, Anakin is Baby Boy. Yoda is String Bean!  Razz Luke is like her firstborn child. She's going to be on a bunch of podcasts, there's a hashtag to try to get her to the TROS premiere. People were commentating on her commentary. She gained like 5000 followers in 3 days. Rian was watching along. Mark saw too. Matt Martin said a bunch of people at LF were following. Also this, about the hand touching scene:

I'm happy for her...but it's overreacted a bit.
Many of us had exactly the same opinion from the very beginning. None of us got any attention from the LF members, nor the SW cast.
I wrote several thoughtful metas, made fanarts...the only thing I got was a death threat from an abnormal cyber bully ( anti ) instead of the LF protection.

The whole thing is super weird to me, sorry.

I agree with you. It's great she's enjoying the films and gets Reylo but I don't understand all the fuss. How is enjoying the films and tweeting about it a big deal and special? Lots of people do the same, they just don't get so much attention. Everyone inviting her to podcasts and demanding she should be invited to the SW show and the TROS premiere seems just crazy. Why not invite someone who makes great fanart or wrote good meta?

People claim she is "saving" and "uniting" the Star Wars fandom but how exactly is that true? Fandom isn't different than it was before. People still either love or hate the new films/Reylo, which is proven by the harassment she is getting from TLJ haters and antis. They act as if it's such a big deal she understands the films immediately. It's great that she does, but many fans understood Reylo the first time they saw the films, but they were ignored by LF. It doesn't really matter how long someone's been in the fandom, some people just get the films better than others.

LF supporting her bothers me because it feels dishonest and self-serving. They act like she's a solution to the haters, but what about all the other people who have loved and defended TLJ and got no support from LF when they were bullied? It seems to me LF is only paying attention to her because it's good and free promotion for TROS and because she's completely uncritical of the films (as IMO they can't deal with any kind of criticism) and it fits the narrative that only OT fanboys hate TLJ, whereas new fans love it and are better fans.

I hope this doesn't come across as mean, because I'm happy when new people discover Star Wars and Reylo. I really just don't understand why everyone is going crazy about her for liking and understanding a few movies.

Exactly! Thank you for writing such a thoughtful answer! You're absolutely right, and should not feel bad for expressing your opinion. I love you👏 Unfortunately very few people are able to see through the fake, pink clouds. confused

The whole thing feels like some kind of twisted propaganda.

Where was JJ and all these people from the LF/Disney when Rian/Kelly/ the Reylo supporters / TLJ fans were verbally abused for months by the toxic cyber bullies?
None of us got celebrated by Pablo/the Lucasfilm group members when we, the reylos were the first to discover the Force Bond from the TFA novelization/script/movie. And so on.

While obviously it's in Lucasfilm's best interests to support someone who is really that purely positive about the movies, it seems a little off the mark to claim there's something insidious going on. I vaguely knew about her before the whole Star Wars thing because she was a BNF in some other fandoms (like 22k followers already).

I think people were just suprised by her vacuum of knowledge re: Star Wars at first, and of course since she was so positive about reylo every twitter reylo banded around her and promoted her like crazy... combined with her HUGE follower base I'm not suprised it started gathering attention.

And if the cast/crew have hundreds of people tweeting them positively about one specific user over a extremely short period of time, of course they're going to check it out. Snowball kind of thing I guess.

I get wanting reylo art/meta to get more official recognition for sure, but I think a lack of recognition is less a deliberate snubbing and moreso just a lack of awareness of specifics - they get mentioned in so much reylo + non-reylo stuff every day- plus how many LF employees have the time to read thoae metas (I loved them but 50+ pages for some is just a teensy bit of a commitment)? And it's not like LF employees/the actors/Rian have never liked or commented on reylo fanart and tweets before.

My 2 cents, at least.

I guess the question is why does anything go viral? It just kind of... happens.

I agree that it was helped by the fact she already had a following from a wide variety of things (Marvel, DC, HP, various pop music acts). And that she knew literally nothing about SW, which is very rare, the closest thing to experiencing it for the first time again. And jammed the whole series in a holiday weekend (except Solo, which she does today). It was several different layers of "what?" Her favorites are ROTS and TLJ. Interesting, I've noticed a lot of big ROTS fans here as well.

I know there were things like Death and the Maiden that went sort of viral, but that was way before LF was talking about Rey and Kylo's dynamic at all. She's probably benefiting from the official openness about Reylo, and the ship's increased popularity, combined with being a new fan with this almost explosive entry into fandom. Sure, it's all a little odd, but I'll welcome her, the more the merrier.

I might sound cynical but from the very start I’ve been viewing the whole mar thing as pure, brilliant, social media marketing.
It’s all just too good to be true, timing-wise too.
Have any of you seen her live feeds? Are they true to time? As in; are they chronologically in compliance with the rate the movies progress?
If so; definitely brilliant marketing.
She’s been hitting all the focal points of all the movies without missing anything.
Could any of you have live tweeted these observations while immersed in something you were seeing for the first time?

Don’t get me wrong. Her tweets have been brightening my day since she’s started but I’m also 90% convinced that it was quite pre planned.

Honestly she seems genuine to me. However I do think the hype around her is getting annoying. I caught that she was asking to go to the TROS premiere when Rian was watching her thread— that’s very opportunistic. On one hand it’s nice that she’s getting big wigs to endorse her Reylo stance, but I don’t think she’s done anything too special to get so much validation and official opportunities from Star Wars reps. It’s a bit unfair to other fans who have also actively engaged with the fandom and got nothing like this out of it.

@Lovely_Rose I think it’s more SW(TROS) marketing than Reylo when it comes to Mar. It’s about hyping up the already existing fandom, making Reywalker supporters ease into the idea of Reylo and bringing in new viewers from MCU etc.

I dunno, the whole progression is too good to be true.
Is she trending because of us commonfolk discovering her or has the hype skyrocketed due to SW affiliates retweeting and mentioning her?
Creating a tiny snowball and turning it into an avalanche by gathering support from the already existing fandom and pushing it forward by making my own well followed associates interact with it is exactly what I would have done if I were working for Disney’s social media department.

@Oscarborough-fairo @Forsythia I agree as well.

On one hand, I am happy there's a new Reylo shipper on board and it is great to see a fan experience the SW films for the first time. However, I don't understand why so many Reylo shippers on twitter/tumblr are treating this as if it's something amazing. Is it because she's a BNF with many followers? There are plenty of average Reylo shippers who became invested in the SW films because of Reylo, myself included. I watched TPM way back in the day as a little girl, but the ST and Reylo brought me into the overall fandom and pushed me to watch all the OT and PT films (even though I pretty much knew all the major plot points and main characters by then, since SW is extremely well known here).

I don't want to be mean or rude, I just don't get why a fan is worthy of more praise and attention because they have a lot of twitter followers. But I guess that's life. Even so, it is nice to see Reylo fans on twitter having fun, so I'll keep my cynical comments here. Embarassed

Although, I don't think this was pre-planned on Mar's part. I think LF saw her live tweeting and jumped at the chance to connect with a fan who is promoting the films to her many followers, in a way. But who knows. Business is business.
