But there's a difference between shipping your favorite heroine with a redeemable bad boy and, say, a mass-murdering space fascist. Not to Reylos, a faction within the Star Wars fandom who want nothing more than to see Rey suffer the indignities of being coupled with a sulky alt-right Sith lord. Countless fanfic and art have been between the burgeoning love between Reylo, despite the occasional lovers' spats like when Kylo mentally violating her or letting his boss torture her.
For their serial killer matchmaking obsession, Reylos have been interminably mocked inside their own fanbase. A feud that became extra fierce when at the end of Return of the Skywalker (spoilers) these two overly sensitive Force users only managed to get to first base before Kylo suffered the fate of all wishy-washy Sith lords. The subsequent Reylo freakout caused great waves of mockery, with even Star Wars star John Boyega torching them with the heat of Boba Fett's flamethrower.
Sadly, when it comes to Reylos versus anti-Reylos, whoever wins, Rey still loses. Many of Reylos' harshest critics are the so-called "true" Star Wars fans, i.e. bitter trolls who've spent way too much money on shitty lightsaber replicas in the nineties not to hate a female protagonist out of sheer principle. For them, the fact that Reylos were even allowed to imagine a Fifty Shades Of Rey plot developing is once again proof that Disney has femininazi'ed their favorite childhood memories and has let dumb girls steal focus away from what makes Star Wars so great (endless trade negotiations). So if it were up to these feuding factions, one of the most iconic female protagonists of the series would either be ball-and-chained to a serial killer or back into a gold bikini and making out with her own brother.
