Reylo refers to fan speculation, shipping theories and fan-fiction centered on the romantic relationship between Star Wars characters Rey and Kylo Ren.
In 2014, LucasFilm, the production company behind the Star Wars films announced the casting of Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver as Rey and Kylo Ren, respectively, in the film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  While the film had yet to be released, one year later, on October 4th, 2015, FanFiction.net writer AmazingGraceless posted the earliest know piece of Kylo Ren/Rey shipping fiction entitled "A Drink Called Loneliness."
Following the release of the film, people began posting fan art and stories about the two having a romantic relationship on Tumblr and DeviantArt. One of the earliest know examples was posted by DeviantArt user l0veyd0vey on December 20th, 2015. The post (shown below) shows the two characters kissing and received more than 3,700 views in two years.
On December 27th, 2015, thealeksdemon posted one of the earliest on Tumblr and received more than 5,000 notes in less than two years (shown below, left).
In January 2016, a Tumblr dedicated to the shipping of Rey and Kylo launched. Reylo Source posted their first piece of art on January 5th, 2016, featuring Rey and Kylo kissing. The post (shown below, center) received more than 5,800 notes in less than two years.
That month, the most popular shipping on DeviantArt was posted several days later by user Ax25. The post (shown below, right) received more than 12,000 views in less than two years.
On December 15th, 2017, Adam Driver appeared on Late Night with Stephen Colbert. Near the end of the segment, the two acted out a scene from Star Wars: The Last Jedi using Kylo and Rey action figures. The scene ended in the two characters kissing.
On December 19th, Bustle published a listicle of some of the most popular jokes about the two characters shipping.
