Good evening dear. How are things? So the other day you said you didn't much care for Sunday's episode. I was just wondering why?
I really really really didn’t like the explanation on how Regina adopted Henry. It was just a regular ol adoption. It contradicted already stated facts about the curse and Storybrooke.
We were lead to believe that Storybrooke is off the map. No one can go in. But Regina leaves (which is fine, she wasn’t cursed), has an application that says she’s from Storybrooke and gets a baby because she has a nice resume? Really? No background check? No home visits? It’s fucking stupid.
Not to mention that a baby from Phoenix ends up with a family in Boston. Or supposed to anyway. Why the hell are there cross-country adoptions? Unless it was set up with the mother (which it wasn’t), there is no reason for that to have happened. Besides Arizona doesn’t even adopt out to non-Arizona residents.
Just the whole thing is stinky and crappy. I hate it when they mess up real-world stuff. Be as fantastical and crazy as they want in the Enchanted Forest or Neverland or any other realm, fine. Whatever. No probs. It’s magic. But this is the real world and the real world rules should apply and I hate that they took a shortcut.
Like, that bit seriously interrupted my enjoyment of the episode. Not to mention that they made this huge big mystery out of how Gold “procured” Henry and it was just a regular ol adoption? Really? That’s like when they revealed there was a typewriter in the box with Baelfire’s name on it. Such a let-down.
There were other things too about the episode I didn’t like but I could have gotten over it. Oh, except the fact that Regina apparently has zero regrets about all the shit she’s stirred throughout the years and the show made it seem like we were supposed to cheer for her in that moment. Nope. And also that she didn’t flat out kill Peter Pan right then and there when he was down for the count. She’s killed people for less reasons. It was ridiculous she didn’t kill him and only was done for story sake.
Another thing that really bothers me is that none of Henry’s parents stayed with him down below. I mean, why would they leave him alone??? Emma is willing to go to hell and back and she just stayed up top while he was alone? It didn’t make sense and again, was only written that way so Pan could come back and surprise everyone and blah blah.
It was just really disappointing.
However, even in saying all that, there were aspects of it I did enjoy.
But yo guys I’m really scared
Because we finally got a serious, bug, real Rumple and Bae make up. And it was fucking beautiful.
But, bu, but now Rumple accidentally put his grandbaby in the box when he was trying to save him.
And what if Neal blames him now. And gets all mad again. Like…
I don’t think Neal would get mad at him for that. It was either put what he thought was Pan in a box or let his grandson’s shadow get ripped off. Hmmmmm.
I found this amazing(ly racist) set of tweets in response to the news that Rapunzel was cast with a black woman.
|| I’m not racist. I actually like black people and diversity. But this? She looks more like Tiana Vidrine than any ressemblance to Rapunzel
|| WHAT DID THE OUAT CASTING CREW SMOKE THIS TIME
|| If she looks like Rapunzel, I look like Pocahontas.
|| i’m crying. #WaysToRuinACharacterByTheOUATWriters
|| MAYBE IF WE’RE LUCKY THEY’LL TURN HER PSYCHO AND LOCK HER UP IN A BASEMENT CUZ I DONT EVEN WANNA SEE HER FACE. FUCK YOUR SHIT OUAT
|| BLAKE LIVELY IS FREE. WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME.
|| I mean, really, if you wanted a brunette as Rapunzel. I’d have understood. But THIS IS WAY OVER THE LINE.
|| “(someone to adam) You guys should get a Best Casting Emmy” THEY CASTED A BLACK POCAHONTAS AS RAPUNZEL ARE YOU BLIND OR SOMETHING
|| I MEAN REALLY. EVERY. SINGLE. BLONDE ACTRESS WOULD HAVE BEEN OKAY FOR RAPUNZEL. WHY.
|| Just say Emma is Rapunzel. I don’t really care anymore at this point.
|| PS: I’m not criticizing the actress’ appearance nor talent butindeed the casting choice. There’s a -big- difference.
|| I’m not saying Blake Lively should have played the role. There was like 1% chance she would but I’m saying that this actress shouldn’t.
|| I’m hurt. Wounded. And in pain. And really sensitive. SO DON’T ASK ME TO BE NICE ABOUT IT BECAUSE YOU DONT KNOW HOW MUCH SHE MEANS TO ME.
|| NEAL AND RAPUNZEL ARE NEVER EVER GONNA BE CANONALTHOUGH NEAL HAS A THING FOR BLACK NIGGAS NOPE
There’s only one thing stronger than being canon. The power of true love.
|| Lola and Neal have been together for a year. That’s not that nigga that’s going to break everything.
|| I don’t even want Neal and Rapunzel to be canon anymore. We don’t need it. But Emma and Neal must happen.
|| Even /I/ look more like Rapunzel. TAKE ME INSTEAD.
ATTENTION WHITE PEOPLE: If you ever catch yourself saying “I’m not racist, but…” there’s a really good chance you’re in the middle of being racist.
There’s a difference between going “wow, a black Rapunzel, that’s different/not what I was expecting…” and having a fucking meltdown that your visions of Aryan Princess Rapunzel have been destroyed forever by the casting of a “black nigga”.
Because only white people can be racist, right?
Look, those tweets are sick, but don’t say it’s only white people. You have no idea who is posting those tweets.
All of those are really shitty but I have to say I don’t think this one is that racist
If she looks like Rapunzel, I look like Pocahontas.
I’m assuming the individual who wrote that doesn’t look Native American. Rapunzel has been described as a girl with long flowing blonde hair for a seriously long ass time. Let’s not lie people. This new actress does not look like the Rapunzel we all have heard stories of. OUAT is making a new spin on it by changing her appearance and I don’t think that stating the fact that she doesn’t look like Rapunzel is racist. It’s seriously an observation.
Dude, people were trippin when they saw Aurora didn’t have blonde hair either.
Thanks everyone for all the answers about Will and Robin
Bae was at least fairly old and made the damn decision to go through the portal by his damn self.
By his damn self?
By his Damn Self?
By his Damn Self?
EXCUSE ME BAELFIRE DID NOT CHOOSE TO GO THROUGH THE PORTAL BY HIMSELF. HIS FATHER FUCKING LET HIM GO
LET’S LOOK AT A GIF SHALL WE:
He is fucking Reaching for his Father! I know we now know it’s PTSD for Rumple but not the point! He didnt decide to go to throught he portal by him damnself!
If you don’t like Neal fine, but don’t rewrite history, his history. Even Rumple admits he abandoned Baelfire.
Don’t fucking tell me he decided to go by himself. He and his father made a DEAL. His father broke the DEAL
The only deal Rumplestiltskin broke.
“Emma can go on and on about how much she loves Neal, but the truth is she can never trust him. That’s why I know SF won’t work out; it’s based on betrayal and trust issues”
LMFAO! It’s like this confessor wants to completely ignore Emma’s feelings about Neal. “She can go on and on…” as if it doesn’t matter that she does, in fact, love the man.
To anyone that watches OUATiW.. what did they reveal about Robin Hood when he was on it? The Knave is his brother, right? What else happened?
Any tips on obtaining a peaceful OUAT tumblr fandom experience?
- Ignore people that you think is too negative/posts things you don’t like.
- Use Tumblr Savior if you can.
- Find people that like the same things you do and engage with them.
- Get in on the discussion!
- If you’re in a heated discussion that’s going south, know when to stop
- Always stand up for yourself
- Stay positive
- Never let things result to name calling
- Understand that anyone can have an off day
- Reblog all the pretties
- Have fun!
I agree that tags are for pro-ships, both the CS and SF/ST tag. However, I find it ironic that you are posting all upset about the things tagged in the Swanfire tag, considering you used to post anti-cs posts IN the CS tag all the time. Also one of those was simply wondering what reasons people have for shipping it. I've seen similar posts in the CS tag,when it's done in a non-hate manner as those and the post today are, I don't see what the problem is with civil dialogue between the two ships.
1) I’m not upset. Making note of something isn’t being upset.
2) What anti CS posts in the CS tag did I make? Link me.
3) Someone asked why people ship CS in a SF tag, I was simply asking why it was in the SF tag.
4) I’ve never asked someone why they tagged SF if they’re wondering why people ship it. In fact, I have responded to many of those types of posts.
