VLOG – Ally
I Like to think that Ben Solo’s
big gesture the proposal as some
call it, in the Last Jedi was
really about him. What he wanted,
her on his terms. Both of them
weren’t in a place to accept each
other in the moment. Acting from a
place of fear of losing the other
person won’t turn out well. Rose
said it best, saving what you
love, really involves sacrifice.
I think Ben will make a big
gesture but it will be because he
is on a path of redemption. It
will be for himself, for her and
for the Galaxy.
These Fangirls – Love Star Wars
EXT. OUTSIDE ABOVE THE STRIP IN VEGAS
We hear the end of the kiss lip smack.
I like to think this is for
myself, for you and the Galaxy.
I’m sorry to interrupt….
Lex turns to leave, Ally struggles to get out of the grasp of
Ben. The door shuts.
BEN! Let me go! LEX! Oh dammit.
Why did you just kiss me?
I mean we match each other so
much! I can help you. You
shouldn’t worry about your friend.
Vocally Ally should be getting frustrated.
Oh no. Did you just quote my own
Vlog back to me?
Yes… It is one of my favorite
Don’t you see? I’m perfect for
you? I’m everything you talk about
on your channel – when you talk
about yourself when you talk about
the characters – I’m the one you
are looking for. We would be great
together you and I. I could do so
much for you help you find the
right contacts get going in the
entertainment industry. But most
important – I am the guy. You know
What? This is really sudden isn’t
it? I mean I just met you. And was
Lex here a second ago.
Just like fate!
Ben you have been so kind and
We should just spend time
together. You could stay out in LA
once you are done your trip, I
could show you the sites! Take you
I have always wanted to go…
You mentioned it on your show! See
I pay attention. It does have to
be serious we could use the time
to get to know each other – you
could even stay in my spare
I don’t what to say.
Ben I’m in a really REALLY weird
place right now, and I think if I
can’t stop thinking about another
person while kissing you, I should
really try to sort out those
… I really don’t understand…
I need to find my friends anyways
and see what time we are leaving.
Ally walks to the door
Transition as we hear the dance close behind Ally.
INT. DANCE PARTY! Crowd, Loud music.
There you go Dani! Dancing is fun!
This is a lot of fun actually!
Kristy, can we get some Air?
They move off the dance floor.
I have been crying on Ally all
day, I just do that,ruminate, like
this, all day. Steve said he
wasn’t sure how to handle my
career any more when I told him I
didn’t know how to comfort Bobby..
He lost his stuffy. I’m not
there.. I don’t know what to say.
Oh gees… People say things, when
they are hungry, or stressed or
tired. You didn’t really sleep at
all last night and then you worked
all day… so try again when you
have rested. I think things will
be easier in the morning.
That… makes alot of sense… I
really should forgive myself for
not knowing how to say the right
things after pulling an all
nighter.. I don’t really know how
I am standing now. Can we maybe go
back to the room?
Sure Dani. Oh hey… There goes Lex
in a hurry… I Haven’t seen Rish
since that guy James wandered off
She will be fine, didn’t she say
she was recently training in a new
form – Crab Guava, to disable an
opponent for her Security work?
She works all those rock concerts
on the weekends to make more cash
You mean Krav Maga? Huh, She was
supposed to be getting information
out of him, we probably find her.
Transition between the Dance and a Hallway in the Hotel.
INT CASINO – Middle of the Night.
Rish and James are hanging out in a lounge area talking,
Casino noise can be heard in the distant background.
You know Rish… These drinks are
Delicious. I like hanging out with
you.. You always order more
drinks. I don’t think i have hung
out with a girl that has done that
for me before.
Happy to, you are very
entertaining. You were telling me
about the trip to Jordan with the
Right. Well would you believe it
is sooo hot there. I’m from
California and it is so hot in
I know RIGHT?
Kristy and Dani Approach from the East
Rish, there you are.. Everything
Hey Kristy, Dani.. wow you look
half dead. You should get some
I know.. We were on our way there
Rish you should too we are talking
about leaving early.
I had that super pillowfort power
nap! I’m good for a while longer.
Kristy, Can I borrow your keys? I
left my clothing bag in there.
Kristy Grabs her keys out and hand them to Rish.
Thanks! I could get the car ready
to go too, maybe pack up your big
Sure, once I change out of all of
this! I’ll leave the Kit in the
hall of the Villa.
Awesome thanks for the help Rish!
Wait.. Go? You’re not leaving are
Well not yet at least…
Oh good! I have another story to
Rish make sure you get sleep
Tell me more, I love these
production tidbits.. What kind of
gourmet coffee does JJ Prefer
Transition to a different Hallway..
INT. Elevator Bank –
We hear the Ding of an Elevator, We hear a chatty couple get
off the elevator. We hear Lex say the following as he tries
to enter the elevator as the couple is exiting.
Oh So sorry. I wasn’t paying
Thank you, young man.
Come on dear, let’s get to the
Oh.. look at that young woman
running this way!
We hear Ally running down the hall to the elevator.. The
elevator starts to close. She is breathy when she arrives.
Lex holds the elevators it makes the sound that elevators
make when you put your hand in the way and they reopen. Lex
doesn’t sound mad just awkward.
Hey… Thanks for holding the
Elevator for me.
Right.. Heading to the room?
We hear the doors close leaving the two of them alone in the
elevator. They are on the top floor.
Yes, I’m pretty tired. I guess you
are pretty exhausted too.
Really tired. It was like I was a
cosplay roadie all day. It was
illuminating, fix this piece, hold
this prop. I had to stand in the
way of some people, almost like
protection duty. It was pretty
You should rest up… We have
another long drive tomorrow.
Yea, I will but Lex.. I really
need to talk to you.
Okay, What’s up?
Lex.. What you saw back there,
wasn’t what it looked like. I
mean, I know I said some things
about Ben earlier today… but…
Ally, you don’t owe me anything. I
just want you to be happy, however
But Lex.. What if… What if you
make me happy.
Ally should be moving closer to Lex as she speaks like
approaching a started animal. Voice notes: Lex should have
his interest peaked, but be cautious.
Ally… you make me happy too.
I didn’t really have a chance to
process how I felt. But I couldn’t
stop thinking about you all day,
all the time we spent together
online. How you were always there,
so fun… And then earlier with Ben,
he was talking away and all I
could think was how I wanted to
hug and maybe do more with you.
If you are you interested…
Yea? Gosh your lips are high up,
you are going to have to come to
me a bit I’m already on my
tippy-toes as much as I can be.
giggle You really are tall!
We hear the rustle of clothes as Lex bends in for a kiss. And
We hear a light smack of lips.
Lex pulls away…
What… What is it? Do I have bad
breath? Haaaa (Breath into Hand)
No. You taste great.. Argg. I’m
You’re sorry, you said I taste
great.. Giggle I don’t
understand.. Come back here.
Dammit you are too tall!
Ally. Please stop… pulling on my
neck, it kinda hurts… I can’t kiss
you anymore tonight, even though..
I really want to.
Why not?! I’m right here. I want
Ally… I will be anything for you
tonight.. Just not intimate,
Please… I’m begging you. You need
a friend, I’m here. I just… I
can’t do MORE. Not.. when… you
were just kissing that other guy…
Can you understand? I want you but
I need to be sure you want me too.
Like not as just some after
Lex, I don’t think of you that
Before yesterday you didn’t think
of me anyway but a friend. Please
just have patience with me. I have
never had an amazing talented
women say she likes me that way
before… in a sexy elevator
situation. How did Kylo ever get
I mean elevators right?
Maybe.. Can I hug you? Would that
Oh! Of course!
Ally quickly goes in for a hug
Ooof. Ally please up a little
Oh sorry.. I’d really like it if
we could maybe watch a movie until
I get tired enough to sleep… I’m a
little wired. Or maybe we could
talk.. Just talk for awhile?
Laughs Lightly oh course, It’s
my favorite thing in the world, to
just talk to you..
We hear the elevators open and the scene transitions
That’s a girl, all showered up,
and ready for bed!
Thanks Kristy, I’m so lucky to
have a friend like you. Thank you
for packing all my costuming back
up. I know it can be a pain.
No worries. You rest up, I think
we want to leave earlyish
tomorrow. I’m just going to wheel
this behemoth out to the hallway.
Sure no problem… Good Night, sleep
tight… Thank you again Kristy. I
know things will look better in
the morning. I love you.
I love you too! Sleep tight!
Kristy closes a door just as another door opens down the
hall… we hear Lex singing the end of a song (Weird Al The
Saga Begins) before closing the door and walking into the
Lex…? It’s dark but isn’t that
Shh.. She just fell asleep, I’m
going to go find some water, and
find another room.
Hmmm.. I won’t ask.
Please it’s… there isn’t any way
for me to explain everything that
Okay. I Find That Answer Vague And
You become part droid when tired?
K2SO speaks to my soul.
You care too much about everyone.
You are always so worried about
all of us. I hope you are taking
care of yourself. Have you called
Everything is fine, I texted her a
couple of times. I am fine… But I
do need to talk about you. You
look… I don’t know… Disheveled?
What were you doing in there..
Nothing just talking, watching a
bit of the force awakens.
NO Way… did you have sex?
Sure in the Rian Johnson sense of
the word.. We held hands. Okay?
HEAVY SIGH I don’t even know
what I’m doing.. I don’t know why
I’m telling you think but I’m
freaking out. She Kissed me in the
Elevator.. And I asked her to
That was my first kiss. And.. She
had just kissed that Ben guy, or
he had kissed her. Or something.
Oh wow.. Um so are you okay?
I think so.. Just I didn’t know
what to do with myself after
everything so I asked her to slow
down. Just hold hands, talk. I’m
so scared she is going to wake up
tomorrow and realize she was wrong
about me. I don’t want to mess
this up, Kristy.
Okay.. Okay shhhh… It’s okay. You
know talking is good. It’s the
foundation – when you talk you
know where you stand with the
person. Expressing your needs is
just as important as hers.
So hand holding is okay for now…?
Well I don’t know were you wearing
gloves? I mean did you practice
safe hand holding?
You can’t see it but I’m eye
Rolling… Good night Kristy, and
thanks… for mothering me.
Good night kid, I’ll see you in
There is a moment.. Then Kristy pulls out her cell and
presses the speed dial, the cell phone waiting to connect.
Sarah answers and she sound very tired.
Hello? Kristy, is everything okay?
It’s the middle of the night.
Oh gees, I’m sorry Sarah, I was
just thinking about you, before
heading to get some sleep. This
trip has been a crazy emotional
roller coaster. I just missed the
sanity you bring to my life.
Oh dear, trying to fix everyone’s
problems for them…?
I care about them all too much to
just leave it be. Like why can’t
they all see they have it in them.
I see it, how amazing they all
are. Why can’t they?
It’s just part of growing up, no
matter the age that happens.
Realizing that the world goes on
and on and on YAWN but you can
only control yourself.. Make
choices for yourself.. You know?
God you are cute when you are
tired. I miss you.
I miss you too. Your last text
didn’t sound too promising you
would get to see the movie.
We are working on it.. But it’s
hard. Trying to keep us sane on
this insane trip.
You’ll figure it out and if you
don’t it will at least be
memorable. Honey, I need to go.. I
have a shift in the morning and
the twins have ninja warrior
Right.. Sorry for calling so late.
It’s okay, I like hearing you are
Just remind them, who they are..
It might help them see it. I love
you. Drive safe.
I love you too Sarah. Sleep well….
We hear a soft Click, and hear kristy walk off into the
distance in the Villa.
INT. PARKING GARAGE – NEAR MORNING
Transition to the parking garage. Where Rish and James are
This place is weird looking..
It’s the parking Garage, remember
you said you wanted to come with
me? You would think you would be
sick of me by now… at near 5 am oh
No… You nooo…. It’s really dirty
Oh here is the Car.. Let me just
unlock the doors, I’ll grab my
bag. And then I can get you to
your room for some sleepy time.
NOO, I don’t need sleep….
Everyone needs sleep…
We hear a message arrive on Rish’s phone.. She looks at it
and takes time to read it..
Oh one sec, I need to check it –
it’s from my friend.. Hopefully
from my friend about the event we
are trying to get to. Oh no… He
says he has tried to find out the
change of location but they are
keeping it secret. He isn’t sure
if he can find out where it will
Event? I’m going to an event..
Tomorrow. Rish… Come here.. Come
here. It’s a SECRET. It’s a
special screening of the MOVIE.
You know the one we have been
talking about all night.. That
Ug. your breathe… wooo And.. you
know where isn’t going to be?
Yea… I have the address locked up
in the old noodle…
Gosh you must me tired… I’m going
to just lean you up her against
this car… and open up the trunk..
She presses the button on the truck to pop it. Walks back
over to James
Look, I got a bed all ready for
James sort of stumbles over the to truck and falls in..
I’m just going to get you tucked
right in here…
Do you have a blanket?
A blanket… my sweater.
She takes off her sweater
Here all tucked in… I’m just going
to get you a water bottle… I’ll be
Rish gently closes the trunk.
Oh god…. What did I just do??
The idea that mistakes can’t be
forgiven or need to be a blackmark
on your life forever is really a
western concept. Genuine apology
and forgiveness are some of the
biggest things we need to learn
throughout our lives…
