^ Not sure what you mean, Dom. If there are exceptions, the neo-fundamentalist-SW-orthodoxy seems to have failed out the gate.

I mean, the concept of a novelization/adaptation is sort of an outlier to begin with anyway. But more important is that I don’t think their intention is for the canon to be as stringent as fans have made it out to be.

And it’d be reeeeal weird to have a ~17 year old Ben Solo address Rey as ‘sweetheart.’

It may not be from the past, it could very likely be said by him in the future, possibly in The Rise of Skywalker. Afterall, her vision did foreshadow their duel on Starkiller Base.

Maybe we should wait and see what happens in TRoS. If Ben says something like that, or if we learn something new about Rey’s parents then you could extract a line from there and put it in TFA or record a new line based on what we know.

Perhaps, but I don’t see a strong need for this, anyway.

Maybe I’m mistaken, but if indeed the position from LFL is that everything is equally weighted canon, I poke that in the eye as an impossible standard. Of course, I’ve got a sensitive spot personally for airtight systems of belief with no wiggle room.

PM me for links to my edits; apparently, some feel shy about this.
