VLOG – Ally
ForceAlly here! Hi Youtubers. I
think alot about the Cave visions
Luke and Rey have experienced. How
the mystic nature pushes them to
do rash things. We experience our
own version of this when we are
under stress or are sleep
deprived. The truth is always
revealed in those moments…
These Fangirls – Love Star Wars
INT. PARKING GARAGE – EARLY MORNING
Lex awakens inside of the car to daniella voice trying to
wake him up..
Lex.. wake up Lex.. I need your
Huh.. What where are we..
Shhh, keep it down, everyone is
still asleep. Come out and shut
Uh okay… one sec, Ally fell asleep
Lex unbuckles his seat belt and moves Ally she reacts
It’s okay Ally… I’ll be right
We hear him get out of the car and shut the door quietly
Dani? Where are we?
Underground Parking! Okay, so
don’t get mad… but we are in a
Hotel in Las Vegas! Surprise!
What… We are already in Vegas? But
we still have like two days till
the movie. I thought we were
stopping last night.
Daniella moves to open the trunk and pull out her large
suitcase – she grunts as he lifts it.
I just downed an energy drink and
drove us straight here! UGGG… Okay
so I really need to pee, so… I’m
Going to bring my stuff up to the
room… Can you wake up everyone and
bring them up to Villa 9… Thanks!
Daniella starts to walk away and then turns back (We hear her
click the rolling suitcase into place and start to roll it
towards the nearest exit)
Oh here are the Keys!
Daniella tosses the which lex gets hit by and they drop to
the ground. Lex groans as he leans down to pick them up.
Ughhhhhh, what is going on…
Lex opens the door, kneeling into the car, whispers to ally
and touches her shoulder.
Ally.. Gosh you are drooling all
over your chin.. I need you to
Huh… what? Oh Lex.. did we stop?
Daniella got us a hotel I think..
Are we in a parking Garage?
Yes.. I need your help, Daniella
abandoned me.. She said I need to
bring up everyone to the room
Ally Stretches and sniffs herself
Sniff…. Ug is that me?
Um yes.. You were also drooling,
here I’ll grab you a tissue.
Lex stretches and grabs a Tissue from a box in the back
window or front of the car.
Here let me get that for you.
He wipes away the drool. Ally stops his hand. VERY quiet
typing starts as the this soft moment happens.
Hey… I can do that.
I know but it’s all over your
cheek, I got it.
The wipe sound continues with the typing getting slightly
louder for a moment when and the Computer Voice cuts in.
Computer Lex voice:
His hand shook as he gently
caressed her face. Her words
caught in her throat as her
breathy voice saying…
Rish! God Dammit!
Sorry! Sorry… it’s a shortcut to
text to talk, I bumped it..
We hear her turning the volume down on her computer again.
Kristy sounds sleepy as she awakens.
What’s going on… are we at the
No. Apparently Daniella drove us
all the way to Vegas, and is
already up in the room.
ARGGg… Why are we in Las Vegas?!
Yea sorry no clue..
Let’s get up to the room, so I can
change, get cleaned up and
question Daniella’s sanity. Where
are my keys..
The scene fades out to rustles of getting out of the car and
the music fades in for the Transition to the room.
INT. HOTEL – VILLA ROOM – EARLY MORNING
The music fades out as door swings open to a posh room with a
fountain in the middle of it. This room has a mini kitchen,
and 4 rooms off the main suite. There is also a balcony door
leading to a balcony that overlooks the Vegas early morning
skyline. The Foursome is standing in the marble hallway
A slight knock on a solid door, pushing it open, to reveal
and echoing opulent room.
What the hell, this is a suite…
Villa 9. Lex did you know this was
I just turned 21 2 months ago.
I’ve never been to Vegas.
Right… I sent you that Reylo saber
I need to pee guys, can we go in
and figure out if this is the
right room later??
Oh course you first..
Rish runs in dropping her bag on the floor by the door way..
Daniella what is going on!
Daniella opens a bedroom door and talks from off to the side,
as she walks closer to group on the marble floor. We hear the
clink of what she is wearing slightly.
Come in – Welcome to our Room! At
least for the next day.. We will
have to leave tomorrow to get to
the movie. I thought this would be
a little fun to get pampered
before we get to LA.
Okay… Two Questions, first… Are
you out of your mind… wait don’t
answer that, I’m too curious.. Why
are you wearing a Slave Leia
Lex clears his throat.
Wow.. that’s accurate.
Yea.. Dani.. what is going on?
Well… Since we were sort of ahead
of schedule to get to LA, I
thought we could make a tinsy
detour to the con in Vegas.. Since
they asked me so nicely to attend
and offered me this suite since it
was a last minute request…
Oh my god. Daniella you didn’t
even check with us.
Well, I just have a few
commitments throughout the day, I
get a paycheck you all can come to
the con or hang out or whatever
and then we can leave in the
I mean, this kinda sounds like
fun.. We can check out the con,
maybe get some things to remember
the trip by. I’ve always wanted to
go to a con with friends. Lex?
Aren’t you excited?
I mean, I’m here.. I could check
somethings out.. Ally maybe they
We hear a knock off to the side, Same as the door to the
suite before. Entering from the Hall is Ben.
Knock knock.. Hello? Daniella?
I’m from the con, I’m here to be
your handler.. Hi everyone….
Right! Nice to meet you! I need
some time to go through my
schedule. Ben.. these are my
closest friends, we are on a bit
of a road-trip. Everyone Ben…
Nice to meet you all. Well I’m so
happy you could fill in for today!
You still have a bit of time
before we need to get down there.
Dani, you really should have told
Wait… are you… Are you ForceAlly?
Um.. Yes, that’s me..
Oh WOW.. I watch all of your
videos! Your recent one on the
Force and the research done by the
NASA on the Overview effect was
truly mind blowing!
Wow.. I don’t think I have ever
met a fan in real life before.
Hi I’m Lex, and That’s Kristy…
Nice to meet you all! Wow
ForceAlly right here…
Ally is fine, thanks. Are you
assigned to Dani all day?
Yes! It should be fun, thank you
again for filling in we have a bit
of a schedule today.. And then
there is a party tonight of
course, after the competition..
Wow, seems like alot of work. Are
you one of the organizers?
Oh yes, I run this con. I’m the
supreme leader in a way..
Daniella’s phone rings, we hear her run towards her phone and
put it up.
Oops one minute. Hi Honey… how are
Lex can you go see if Rish got
lost in this place?
Um sure… Are we changing here? I
think we could all use a shower
and get some food…
Right… I am a little hungry..
Okay Als, I’ll be right back..
Then we can go find something. I
We hear Lex move away..
Oh well when you are all ready, I
can take you to the buffet on me,
it’s really world class!…. Ally,
god.. It’s amazing to meet you in
person, I have so many things to
ask you (chuckle) Wow, you are a
lot shorter than I imagined in
So… Ben. This is in a way a family
trip of sorts, I know Daniella is
busy but are we able to spend time
with her? She is like my daughter
in a way…
Oh! It would be fun to have you
along! Then I can get to know all
of you better.
Dani’s door opens… and we hear her crying softly pause and
it’s still on her voice.
Daniella are you okay?
Yes… I’m fine. I just want to get
Great! Why don’t I take you and
Ally down to the buffet, get your
energy up and then we can get on
with the day. Kristy why don’t you
bring the others down with you
when they are ready.. We can be
one big happy family.
Ally here is my phone I don’t have
pockets and kristy here is key to
the villa.. Let me know if Steve
We hear the Ben lead Ally and Daniella out of the suite
talking while they leave.
Of course. Come on Dani, food will
help. I know it’s been a long
trip.. Maybe we can fit in a nap
Hey… Ally, I need to show you this
video I watched this morning, it’s
comparative on Joseph Campbell’s
Goddesses and star wars.. I really
think Aboleth is like Ereshkigal.
Of course I completely understand
the desire to not want aboleth to
be re-canonized like you
They close the door behind them as they leave.
I did not get enough sleep.. Rish…
Lex? Where are you why are you
taking so long?
Rish and Lex come out from one of the bedrooms.
I don’t know what happened….
Kristy.. Um. something happened…
All the online rumor mills are
reporting the location of the
Here see my laptop, there is
another youtube channel that’s
sharing it out, retweeting by all
the twitter paragogues.
Star Wars we know more than you
—– Who comes up with these
names – that’s it, when I get home
I’m putting in my Star Wars The
3 guys… sharing this leak. Oh
god.. They are talking about how
they are worried people will show
up to boycott. What.. are there no
women who they could get on their
shows to put them straight? No
Laughs Sadly.. I agree.
The Semi news outlets have picked
it up… Everythingcomics.. The Time
and the date. This is bad..
Oh no.. I wonder what J.G.L FAN
will do.. I mean what if they
don’t know. Can I have my laptop
back, I’ll send a message. And try
to reach out on the forums and
God what are we going to do, Ally
will be so disappointed, Dani
seems really upset. What is going
on with her and Steve?
I don’t know yet. Rish, try to
contact your friend. Call me when
you’re all done and we will meet
up. I think we can call this room
home for at least today. Lex, come
Oh okay.. Oh Kristy, where’d Ally
Kristy and Lex proceed out the hall and to the Elevator over
the next minutes, on their way to the Buffet..
Okay, Lex.. WE are going to have a
talk, MOVE. I’m still a little
pissed at you for not feeling
comfortable enough to be yourself
around us. Did you really think WE
would judge you Lex? Did you think
Kristy… I know you wouldn’t..
Please don’t me mad at me.. I know
I messed up… I don’t know how to
handle you being mad at me..
Lex… How long have we been
chatting for? A Year? I have
always felt protective of you. You
said it yourself, I mother you
You know what you did was wrong, I
just wanted you to know I will
always speak the truth to you,
even if you can’t handle it.
Okay.. What do you want to tell me
Kristy. I will try to hear it in
the spirit it is meant.
Okay, first let me say… It’s
obvious you have feelings for
Ally. I’m just not sure the level,
I think it’s romantic for you,
this is very sudden for Ally.
There was a level of trust there..
She had leaned into this
friendship with you.
Her friendship has meant more to
me than anything, especially this
year… my grandma. It’s been hard.
Okay, I know you aren’t ready to
do anything.. But that doesn’t
mean that Ally won’t want
something with someone.
Sure but if it doesn’t work out
with that guy.. Ummm The Fanboys
guy. I mean she isn’t seeing
Did you not just meet Ben? He is a
huge fan of hers, confident,
everything she thinks she wants.
Oh the Buffet is this way.
THAT guy? No… Way. He is so, I
don’t know.. In your face.
Sure. Confident, comfortable in
his skin, Sounds horrible.
Trust me Kristy, I know what kind
of guy she likes.. Oh here we are,
let’s go in and find them!
Lex and Kristy have wandered downstairs past the casio.
Arriving at the Buffet. The Place is a semi busy restaurant,
with alot of table conversations happening.
Oh they are over there… right, so
Ben is giving her a neck rub.
Ah.. maybe her neck hurts from
leaning on me in the Car…
Sure. Let’s go talk to the
platonic neck rub participants.
Hey.. Ally… Did Steve call or
Wow you really have alot of stress
held in your neck.
Mmmmmmm no… not yet…
Right… I see you got food, Rish
will be down in a minute or two.
Ally is your neck hurting? I’m
sorry if I caused it.
No I am okay Lexy.. Thanks Ben,
that was great.
Anytime! I’m here to be of
service. Why don’t you two go get
your plates and I’ll go through
the schedule with Daniella…
Sure I’m starving, Come on Lex…
Kristy turns to leave. Lex stays for a moment.
Hey Ally, do you have a minute to
We hear her stand pushing back her chair. Ally leaves with
Lex towards the buffet. Ben’s conversation with Dani fades
away as Lex and Ally move away.
Sure I wanted to get another plate
of fruit. Dani you ate all of
Huh.. oh yea..
Okay Dani, at quarter to ten we
need you to head to the main
ballroom you have a photo area set
up there. Then the 501st wanted to
do a photoshoot. Then there is the
competition to judge in the
Hey Whats up? You look shaken.
I wanted you to know before I tell
Dani – the location of the
screening was leaked… We are
worried there will be thousands of
people there by tomorrow.
I’m so sorry Ally, I really wanted
to watch it with you.. and the
girls together. Rish is working on
figure out what is going on but we
don’t know anything yet.
Yea.. I hope we can figure it
out.. But hey! At least we are
here.. This amazing hotel! We can
check out the Con. By the Way…
Isn’t Ben amazing!
Ben.. Wait.. That guy?!
YES! He is so smart and charming!
And he loves my channel.
He really rubs me the wrong way.
Like he really hasn’t noticed how
upset Dani is.
Oh yea. She told me she had a
fight with Steve, something about
cosplaying and not being around. I
don’t know she wasn’t really
clear.. Anyways, I’m going to hang
out with Dani all day, then I can
chat with Ben.
Yea, I really like him.. He is
really cute isn’t he…
I.. Guess. Ally… you know I would
do anything for you.. And.. and
you can trust me right? Like, what
is going on? Do.. you like him?
I don’t know it’s kind of like
serendipity. He is a huge fan of
my work.. Can you believe that?
Okay, of course.. You are great at
your Analysis. But he is seeing
the edited version of you. The
version you share out there.
Yes Exactly it’s how I would like
to see myself.. I guess.
You met him like 15 minutes ago..
But when you know what you want..
Is this what you want? Someone to
like.. the Mask you wear?
Is the Person I am online is that
Yes. We all wear Masks to protect
ourselves. But what ForceAlly
wants isn’t what you… Ally need..
It is the person I need to be.
Ugh ALLY, what are you doing?!
What do you mean.. What am I
Voices are raising and people are noticing.
I can’t believe you don’t see
it… You don’t want a boyfriend…
you just want a boyfriend
You, just want someone to distract
from the real problem. ALLY, you
aren’t comfortable in your own
skin. You don’t want to be you!
Comfortable in my own skin?
You have been lying to yourself
about what you need and want.
No I haven’t!
Yes, you have, and when you try to
find something, anything to
distract you… I get to be the one
to cheer you up when that idiot
breaks your heart.
I’m such a burden aren’t I… well
you, have been lying to me this
whole time.. Do you know how
betrayed I feel? All of those
conversations, every life story. I
told you about my ovarian cysts
for gods sake. You can’t pretend
you didn’t wear a mask either,
pretending to be a girl.
No you are right.. Perhaps there
is a lesson here… Maybe you should
be more careful with people you
meet. Especially over the
I can’t believe you. Why are you
I have been a crutch for you. I
see that now. I now see who you
are. And I’m sick & tired of you,
and you know what, I am not
hungry. I’ll see you later, maybe.
Lex storms off.. Leaving his plate.
Why are you saying all this?
Wait.. what is happening? Can I
not leave you alone for 5 minutes?
Oh Kristy… (Crying noises.)
Rian Johnson was right, the
hardest thing Rey could ever come
to terms with was that the
illusion of who she was and meant
be was fake. That she had no
dreams to fall back on. Kylo
Shattered that, but she always
knew it. Can you imagine, feeling
that way? I can.
