“Adam, I didn’t think I could get him. I mean, I knew how busy he was, everybody in the world wants him. Great actor. I really felt that it would be a long shot, but he wanted to be a part of this and the rest is history.
"and he’s a good dude, he’s my man…
"I’m not knocking anybody but there are some actor who are great but they don’t have the range, they do one thing and they do it well. Adam, he’s not repeating anything. Leave out Girls because he plays one character, his film roles, he’s a different person every single time. Even Star Wars!
A/N- I’ve been a major fan of Adam Driver’s for a few years now but I didn’t really think anyone would read stuff for his characters except Kylo Ren, but here you go. This may become a series. I don’t know.

She surrounded herself with black and white. Amongst the sharp contrast of straight lines and curves And circles and swirls. Her clothes were black and white, Our house was black and white, Her interests were black and white. But the paintings of her dog were in colour. I thought our black and white world was fine. Until it wasn’t.
Tuesday, at 6:10 am, Paterson began to stir in his sleep. Stretching his limbs across the spacious bed. He opened his eyes to only close them once more as the light from the window shone through; blinding his vision. He reminded himself to purchase some curtains after work.
Pushing himself out of bed, Paterson grabbed the clothes folded on the dresser and headed to the bathroom to begin getting ready for his day. He had quickly adjusted to living alone. Maybe because by the end of his marriage with Laura, the house felt more like her home than theirs. Paterson felt pressured by Laura to share his poetry when it was something private. It was for him and when the right time came, it would be for her as well. But it never was.
While Laura reassured Paterson that she could wait, her actions showed otherwise. He knew that she had looked at his old poem book, and that was how Marvin had been able to shred it to pieces. Paterson remembered putting it away in his den; not in the living room. He found it hard to trust her fully after then.
Slowly but surely, Laura got fed up of Paterson being closed off. It was common nature for him to be secretive and quiet, due to his military background, however, he no longer described his day to her as he used to. Answering in short, simple phrases instead. They knew things were truly over when she had stormed out one night after an argument and he had not followed to get her back. He would always follow. Paterson moved out rather quickly. Finding a place closer to work. His routine was still mostly the same, except instead of having to walk Marvin, he walked alone to the bar, often after cooking himself some dinner.
Life was no longer black and white, There was no more straight lines or curves Or circles or swirls. It was the dull blue of my work uniform, The beige colour of my living room walls. Every day was the same, But at the same time, it wasn’t. It was ever so slightly different. Until she arrived.
This post is either gonna be ignored (which would be the best option probably) or picked up and then I’ll probably be sent a lot of hate but… I feel I kinda need to say this.
I’m seeing a LOT (and I mean like, A LOT LOT) of Adam Driver hate on tumblr, mostly post calling him ugly and “wow how can crappy het women be attracted to that ugly scarecrow” and shit like that. (ATTENTION : Yes I may be a woman, but I’m not straight. Even though that shouldn’t matter.)
That’s… that’s not an okay thing to do. It’s not okay to call people ugly and shame (even if it’s a joke) people for liking someone. I’ve seen comments where people are like, afraid of admitting they find him attractive. Anyone saying ‘No i disagree, i think he’s hot’ basically gets a ‘lol shut up het’. (BTW, that’s also not an okay thing to do or say.)
Jameela Jamil would be ashamed guys.
Would you let that shit fly if this was a woman we were talking about? No. You wouldn’t. But because Driver is a (probably) straight white man, that’s okay? Is that the body positivity you want? Is that the feminism you want?
Of COURSE you can find him unattractive/ugly/whatever. There’s no accounting for taste (in French we say ‘Les goûts et les couleurs, ça ne se discute pas’). But spreading hate like that, no, that’s not okay. He’s a real person, with real feelings. There’s real implications of the shit people are doing/saying.
Come on guys, we know that. We’re better than that.
Unpopular(?) opinion: Hux being the spy was HILARIOUS. A little out of the blue, yes, but I thought it was so funny. And it actually made sense to me. I guess a lot of people don’t get it but listen up. He really did hate Kylo Ren enough to not even care if the Resistance won as long as Kylo Ren lost. I see a lot of stuff talking about ‘Hux showing up at the resistance base be like’ and I don’t think he would’ve actually joined the Resistance if he hadn’t been killed, he just wanted to have Kylo’s position and if feeding the Resistance info about what Kylo was up to was a way to get that done, he totally took that chance.
Also- the whole “I’m the Spy”-H “WHAT?”-F “I KNEW IT.”-P “No you did not.”-F interaction. This is the reason I believe Ben would not have had as hard a time being accepted as he had believed, if he had the chance to return with Rey.
The Mark Lasky Situation scene concept 1 - The Argument
“Listen to what’s coming out of your mouth right now, woman! This is the only thing that I can call really, truly mine! Not Kylo’s, not Clyde’s, not Charlie’s, but mine! That’s why this is so important to me–it’s the only thing I’ve ever been able to accomplish alone without feeling like I have to float off into space! You look at me like I’m insane for wanting this!”
“I never said you were insane, Mark, I-”
“You act like I am! You never one time looked at me like I wasn’t a psycho since we met! I hate that! I wish I could just be here all the time, but I can’t and I never will be, so why can’t you just accept that?! Why can’t you accept all of us as people?! Why do we struggle with this when you swore to me we wouldn’t?!”
