thing is, we have every reason to assume that kylo ren already had a perfectly functional lightsaber at some point and then threw it away in favour of that defective piece of shit just because the blade wasn't red. just, what? does he think that if he just collects all the trappings of ~*the dark side*~ and puts them on he'll magically turn into this powerful confident untouchable badass? that is some cargo cult level shit! also he will just never make me think of anything but that one guy in my class who got so mad about somebody else's bad decision that he punched a wall and broke his hand and missed two entire months and ended up having to repeat the whole year. look, i don't know who the fuck you think you are, but i know for a fact that you're wrong.
