I saw a tweet from a mutual (who isn't an anti, she just doesn't ship reylo) that daisy once said in an interview that rey definitely has zero feelings for kylo romantically when she was asked about reylo. I just want to know if there is an interview like that? Or along similar lines?

Sounds like chinagate (January 2018), which was was mostly debunked.

anonymous asked:

chinagate was confirmed to be fake

#confirmed as in? I’ve read this post which makes some good points, but tbh I’ve come across so many different takes in the span of 24 hours that I’m just… stepping out of this until either the original interview in English pops out, or Daisy straight up confirms or denies she’s ever said anything like that. To be honest I’m not convinced it’s fake, but I’m also super done obsessing with such a minor incident either way, especially considering all the new reylo-positive material from the lucasfilm story group.

Anonymous asked:

Is someone able to contact the journo that conducted the interview in English with Daisy and Mark for mtime? He’s on twitter but hasn’t posted since august (Jami Philbrick). I want to believe she was talking about Kylo in TFA and what we knew about their possible relationship going into TLJ just based on promo materials released (that’s why Poe/Rey is also referred since there was a BTS video where they were shown to be laughing in the MF) because there aren’t big spoilers in the transcript.

I wasn’t able to reply yesterday, apologies. However, check this post, it gives a lot of insight on how the interview is suspicious at best. 

Again, I’d recommend not to latch on the idea that it’s fake—not every reylo-negative news or comment has to be and I think this fandom is alarmingly prone to call bullshit every time things don’t go our way, because let’s be real we’re getting used to being right, lol—but I also suggest to calm down and stop worrying about it. Even if it’s real, it’s just a throwaway comment in one interview which we don’t have the original quote or context for. There are going to be other comments and other interviews in the next 2 years, hopefully most of them will be positive for us, but not all of them will. So I think we need to learn to deal with the fact that this story is in constant evolution and the actors are human beings who might or not be happy with the direction it’s going (but whether or not they are, it’s probably irrelevant), and who have bad days and salty moments like everyone else.

It’s also worth remembering that actors aren’t *ship mates* or antis or whatever. Actors just don’t understand shipping the way WE do, even when they seem to be happy to interact with fandom content. Like I’m sure that Daisy liked reylo fanart when she was on instagram because she was pretty new to this fandom thing and she was like, oh, star wars fans are able to do such pretty art? OOH, AMAZING!, and just like that, any reylo-negative comment she supposedly said or didn’t say is 100% not done mean spiritedly like an anti would.

So yeah. Chill.

The only thing I’m going to say about translations

Language, especially metaphorical language is weird. I heard a story about a guy traveling somewhere in Asia, China I think, and stopping at a bookstore. The bookseller, after speaking with the traveler for a few minutes recommended a book to him: “The Angry Raisins.”

It was John Steinbeck’s “The Grapes of Wrath.”

To properly translate something, you need to understand the full context. Any translator, pre TLJ, is going to be at a disadvantage. The actors are being deliberately cagey. Beyond that, capturing tone is challenging even in English. We developed emoticons and emoji to make up for deficiencies in text online for this very reason.

Sound bites will never convey complex ideas with any accuracy. This goes double when the sound bite has been translated into a foreign language and back again.

Disappointed by this chinagate.

I studied various asian languages for most of my teens, and mostly chinese, so I know that translation is really tricky, and most of the time some stuff is virtually untranslatable.

And I’m heavily involved in asian entertainment as well, so I know that chinese online media can be pernicious, tendencious and intentionally controversial.

And I’m rational to know that actors opinions means nothing when it comes to plot decisions

But damn. Talk about a mood hamper. 

I think what annoys me the most is the whole “don’t support” thing, because it reeks of anti politics tbh.

It’s different if she said “I would like their connection to remain non-romantic in nature”. THAT I have no problem with; it’s just an opinion, not an implicit judgement. But “I don’t support them as a couple” is not only unnecessarily mean, it carries a lot of negative subtext re: potential abusiveness / toxicity of the pairing, and all the shit antis usually throw at us.

So I’m hoping with all my heart this isn’t the way she originally worded it.
