I can only imagine Owen seeing this post, thinking it is a hell of a coincidence and showing it to OP like "yo, this is the funniest shit, do you think he'll see it?"

[–]TemptedIntoSin 999 points1000 points  (12 children)

That's most likely how it'll play out

[–]TheTempest77Battle Droid 455 points456 points  (11 children)

Well, if they're friends on reddit that he should know her username and it should be blue. But who am i kidding, none of us have friends

[–]Mr_Seg 458 points459 points  (7 children)

*None of us tell our friends our Reddit usernames.

[–]TheSavageCaveman1 109 points110 points  (2 children)

Much more accurate. Although once my friend posted a meme to our discord and said it got him a bunch of upvotes on this sub and I was able to find his profile from it.

[–]PacoSoe 2499 points2500 points  (12 children)

u/ejrea : posts this

People called owen: “Hello there”

Impossible, perhaps the Archives are incomplete

You underestimate this subreddit!

[–]FineusHello There. 1728 points1729 points  (12 children)

Take a hint, young Owen!

[–]United_Platypus_9965 949 points950 points  (11 children)

From my point of view, the Owen's a dumbass.

[–]hau2906 417 points418 points  (8 children)

Well then you are right

[–]NoPlaceLikeNotHome 160 points161 points  (7 children)

Where is Owen? Is he safe, is he alright?

[–]FineusHello There. 5710 points5711 points  (5 children)

It would seem in your upvoting, you gilded him.

It would seem that in her desperation, he ghosted her

[–]Weeby_bio 4288 points4289 points  (45 children)

Any person whos name is Owen coming by this will have a heart attack lmao.

[–]fishcanseldomfly 2774 points2775 points 2 (21 children)

Can confirm, but now also feel slightly special

[–]GeneralAlloy 116 points117 points  (0 children)

True, I was shaken for a sec

[–]AHomicidalTelevision 2266 points2267 points  (58 children)

lol my name is also owen so this surprised me a bit.

I'm also called Owen and I'm obsessed with ATLA so I'm getting worried

[–]inneffable-angleJedi Order 86 points87 points  (2 children)

Have you recently watched atla with someone?

[–]OctoTestingAccountI want to be a Clone but I'm more of a Stormtrooper :( 80 points81 points  (0 children)

Do you watch it with a lass?

[–]Bosscow217 43 points44 points  (0 children)

thank goodness i'm not the only owen in these comments

[–]FrogsGoYete 422 points423 points  (14 children)

I have never scrolled so far in a comment section to see if the 2 jedi ever met

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 271 points272 points  (8 children)

I’m going to reply to the pinned mod comment with updates!! The first one will be in around 8 hours?

[–]PeritusEngineer 5782 points5783 points  (235 children)

How is Owen going to know who's confessing?

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 8503 points8504 points 3 (224 children)

Good question. If he sees this and he’s been watching ATLA (great show!!) with someone lately...it’s me...

[–]OminousSaladWhat about the Droid attack on the Wookies? 3712 points3713 points  (40 children)

Im beginning to like this Owen Guy.

[–]JarjarON 2339 points2340 points 2 (9 children)

This is getting out of hand. Now there is two of them!

Always two there are...No more, no less.

[–]Basileus_IoannesAnakin 153 points154 points  (6 children)

I see you two are people of culture as well.

[–]Blobfish_fucker69 769 points770 points  (10 children)

A couple of culture, (i hope)

[–]chetradley 334 points335 points  (5 children)

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Owen the sleepy? I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Owen was a Prequel Memer, so powerful and so wise he could use new to influence the upvotes to create top posts... He had such a knowledge of new that he could even keep the ones he cared about from having to spend hours looking for him on a reddit thread. The dark side of prequelmemes is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was falling asleep, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his crush everything he knew, then his crush posted a meme about him in his sleep. It's ironic he could save others from heartbreak, but not himself.

[–]MasterScoutRifle 2114 points2115 points  (10 children)

I wish I was Owen, but then again Uncle Owen ended up pretty crispy.

[–]afterIife101 595 points596 points  (3 children)

Uncle owen was pretty hot

[–]HumanSpecimenOnEarthResearcher of fine additions 238 points239 points  (1 child)

[–]ow729 2028 points2029 points  (72 children)

My name is Owen and I have been watching ATLA with someone (if your names Nina though I will lose my shit).

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 2586 points2587 points  (36 children)

That is so crazy! I’m so sorry but I’m not the droid you’re looking for. Best of luck with your Nina!

[–]ow729 1439 points1440 points  (31 children)

I'm relieved because she my best friend and that would have been awkward.

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 1457 points1458 points  (22 children)

Oh! Well, I’m amending my wish of luck to a “best of platonic, happy friendship luck with your friend Nina” kind of deal. :)

[–]ow729 664 points665 points  (20 children)

And good luck to you, let's find the right Owen. He's out there somewhere. Also after this I dare you just make a group chat out of all the Owens you've found around the world.

[–]Abyssal_Groot 374 points375 points  (16 children)

Damn, so that would be like a Council of Owens? You better make Owen Wilson the head of the council!

[–]LopeDePicas 410 points411 points  (18 children)

That's funny, I'm not called Owen but I have been whatching ATLA with a Nina.

[–]WippitGuud 1040 points1041 points 2 (17 children)

That's funny, I'm not called Owen and I haven't been watching ATLA with a Nina. or with anyone. In fact, I've never watched it.

On second thought... it's not so funny...

[–]DerpFackingValue 101 points102 points  (1 child)

Only comment I’ve read so far that made me laugh out loud

[–]WARMACHINEiam 287 points288 points  (3 children)

Owen! Fuckin say something

[–]Lord_of_Forks 4418 points4419 points  (47 children)

Let’s get this to Owen, lads.

No chance your name is Beru?

[–]Technical58CZI am the Senate 3451 points3452 points 223 (22 children)

Well if her name is Beru, I can tell they will make a smokin' hot couple

[–]angry_monkey116Filthy weeb 923 points924 points  (14 children)

why? why did you have to say that?

[–]TheAdmiralMosesGrand Admiral of the Empire 625 points626 points  (0 children)

It's the law!

[–]Jacmert 203 points204 points  (2 children)

He says things before they happen. It's a Jedi trait.

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 896 points897 points  (20 children)

No, unfortunately! Hopefully my chances haven’t gone up in smoke...

[–]Valiant1204 223 points224 points  (7 children)

Bold of me to doxx myself but my name is Owen? Unlikely to be me, but just in case.

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 250 points251 points  (6 children)

Oh, a contender! Do you happen to be watching through ATLA with someone? Gotta cover all my bases. (And if for some wild reason you are, I’m going to have to come up with a second verification question...)

[–]Valiant1204 234 points235 points  (1 child)

Great show, have watched through multiple times, but not doing that with anyone, sorry! If it was me I’d also be gay, so that lucky of you to avoid that bullet lol.

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 267 points268 points  (0 children)

Haha, thanks for stopping by anyway! This is not the Owen droid I’m looking for.

[–]Wesk333Darth Maul 221 points222 points  (0 children)

OWEN U NEED TO SEE THIS

[–]spacekiwii 217 points218 points  (1 child)

OWEN WAKE THE FUCK UP

[–]nandos93 186 points187 points  (5 children)

Waking up and seeing a post with my name in really confused me. I doubt this person is confessing their crush for me on here but my username is part of my surname so they will know. Good luck to all the other Owens.

[–]TheOneTrueTrench 66 points67 points  (0 children)

Have you been watching Avatar with them recently?

[–]yettizepplin 35 points36 points  (1 child)

HAVE YOU BEEN WATCHING AVATAR WITH A GIRL OWEN!?

[–]SpookyScarySkelet0n 1383 points1384 points  (15 children)

Okay, we’re gonna need regular updates on whether or not ya boy Owen has seen this or not

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 2016 points2017 points  (14 children)

I am honestly so touched that a bunch of prequel memers are invested in this. I will definitely come back at 12-hour intervals to hijack the top comment and update!

[–]hermitxd 293 points294 points  (3 children)

We have no life, we will live vicariously through you.

Okay, I don't deserve to be saying that I never post here and saw this on r/All

[–]groogggle 166 points167 points  (1 child)

It's a bold strategy Cotton. Let's see if it pays off for them.

[–]MrPresident235Grey jedi 485 points486 points 2 (21 children)

Marie is that you?

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 595 points596 points  (16 children)

I’m so sorry, this is not Marie! Best of luck though, soldier.

[–]Shiill0hI have the high ground 148 points149 points  (16 children)

Send him the post 0.0

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 487 points488 points  (15 children)

Honestly, if he hasn’t seen this by the 12-hour mark (that’s when around 20 people seem to have set reminders) I probably will... Now that I’ve confessed to 4,000 people instead of him, it can’t be that scary, right?

[–]Shiill0hI have the high ground 201 points202 points  (2 children)

This is where the fun begins

[–]luca01d 73 points74 points  (2 children)

But what if he’s a Sith Lord?

[–]rahulmark42Obi-Wan Kenobi 54 points55 points  (0 children)

They will become more powerful than the Chancellor and overthrow him and rule the galaxy together.

[–]Captain2003Rex 151 points152 points  (3 children)

Damn, this just might be the single most heavily upvoted and awarded post on this subreddit that I've seen in my three years of Reddit

If this doesn't get Owen's attention, not much else will, so I wish you luck! Lol

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 107 points108 points  (0 children)

It’s insane! The Force is certainly with me tonight. And thank you, I’m hoping for the best :)

[–]Kris_KaGie 134 points135 points  (1 child)

Hey /u/ejrea,

This is now the top post on reddit. It will be recorded at /r/topofreddit with all the other top posts.

[–]Responsible-Race989 101 points102 points  (6 children)

Where is Owen did he reply

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 140 points141 points  (5 children)

Not yet! I’ll come back at around the 12-hour mark, and then at the 24-hour mark, to update...

[–]LivingmahDMlife 67 points68 points  (0 children)

You are strong and wise, and we are very proud of you

[–]LordShimonDarth Imperius 91 points92 points  (0 children)

What about the love attack on Owen ? It is crittical we send him this meme immediately. It's a romance we can not afford to loose.

[–]samamorgan 96 points97 points  (1 child)

/u/ejrea, Please send this to the real Owen. I'd be tickled if a girl sent me a post like this, even if I never saw it organically.

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 94 points95 points  (0 children)

If nothing else, hopefully he’ll at least be flattered. I definitely will send him the post later though!

200,000 Owens are ready with a million well on the way.

[–]OFS_RazgrizYou have lost 82 points83 points  (6 children)

The fact that there are multiple people in this thread named Owen with a friend they're watching ATLA with just makes me realize that there's so many people in Earth that some of us are likely leading identical lives to each other and will still never meet?

Maybe a clarifying statement would be "what gender are you" since that might be a stronger qualifier?

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 52 points53 points  (5 children)

Yeah, it’s very crazy. I think it’s working as a verification process so far, because only one person said they were an Owen watching ATLA and they didn’t reply to the follow up, so I’m guessing it’s not him.

I am looking for a guy, in case that wasn’t already clear!

[–]LukeMonteiro 377 points378 points  (12 children)

I just went through all the comment section and find it really lovely. Good luck on finding your Owen!

On a related note, I kinda confessed to my GF using Mistborn, so...

"Star Wars will do fine 👋"

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 167 points168 points  (0 children)

Thank you so much! That’s amazing, hopefully I will have similar luck... :)

[–]Lew3032 235 points236 points  (3 children)

This post may have created huge dissapointment for multiple Owens

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 428 points429 points  (2 children)

Owens of Reddit, probably: “This is outrageous. This is unfair. How can you be named Owen and not be the crush of u/ejrea?!”

[–]D0M1NU5_7 347 points348 points  (2 children)

Owen if you see this, look at, comment so we knoe it worked

[–]Lea_Lovegood 204 points205 points  (1 child)

[–]imsorryisuck 136 points137 points  (1 child)

with the amount of your prequel references you made in this comment section i think you're too dangerous to be left alive.

Too powerful in the dank side?

Anyone named Owen browsing the subreddit: "He could be any one of us. He could be in this very room."

[–]becomeabetterman94 61 points62 points  (6 children)

My name's Owen

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 67 points68 points  (5 children)

Hello there. You wouldn’t happen to be watching ATLA with someone at the moment, would you?

[–]becomeabetterman94 61 points62 points  (4 children)

Nah watching the Office, wrong Owen I guess

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 93 points94 points  (1 child)

Also a great show choice. May the Force be with you, Owen-but-not-that-Owen!

[–]Jakeyboi555 175 points176 points  (4 children)

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 217 points218 points  (14 children)

Hey, well, the worst thing that can happen is you get a ‘no’, and then you’ll know he isn’t worth your interest in that way anyway! Wishing you luck, fellow soldier.

[–]CyberAngels69Queen Amidala 119 points120 points  (6 children)

thank you! i've liked him since first year of college. we went for drinks together with mutual friends & we talk a bit on discord.

i've been building up the courage for a while..

best of luck to both of us🥺

[–]413x314 50 points51 points  (3 children)

u/ejrea no matter how it turns out, way to put yourself out there and thanks for brightening our day. We grant you the rank of master.

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 50 points51 points  (2 children)

This is acceptable. It’s fair. How could I make a post that got 80,000 upvotes and not be a master?

Thank you though :)

[–]BluejayLawSorry, M'lady 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Here before Owen. Carry on.

[–]Diatzen 40 points41 points  (5 children)

As an Owen who sorted by new. I am confused.

[–]thanosthumb 47 points48 points  (28 children)

Holy cow I hope Owen knows it's him she's talking about and not one of the other Owens out there

[–]ejreaAnakin[S] 100 points101 points  (27 children)

I freaking found him so I think he knows!

[–]MeanSausages 56 points57 points  (14 children)

Surely this is the most nerve racking way to tell someone you like them

Yeah, I don’t know why I thought this was a good idea

As a guy named Luke I'm increasingly concerned by Owens absence

[–]SheevTheSenate_Deathsticks 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Guys, I have found him! Our Clone Intelligence units have discovered the location of Owen. He's hiding in the Utapau system.

[–]LoonRangea 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Havent scrolled through this many comments since the waterguy12 war. Still havent seen the one they call Owen. Perhaps the archives are incomplete

[–]Donutpanda23Background Stormtrooper that died 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Wishing you luck with this reaching Owen. Owen, if you read this or see this post in any way, go for it- Or something.

[–]NOTIMEBROSEPH 25 points26 points  (1 child)

I was hoping for kenobi why is owen here?

[–]DutchHeIs 28 points29 points  (7 children)

Saw this on popular. I'm not a fan of star wars but opvoting this nonetheless because this is really cute and I hope Owen likes you back in the same way.
