The Three Queens - Are They Really "Of Darkness"?

This post contains an answer to 31 questions. They’re listed under the cut, because there are A LOT of them.

Alright, Ladies and Gents! Here is my Queens of Darkness post. Finally. It turns out thereason why it took me so long to edit is probably because it’s almost as long as my pregnancy post. Oy!Anyway… this post contains an answer to 31 questions. That was my final count. I was supposed to post this this morning, but there was a late spoiler by Yahoo regarding Killian’s connection to Ursula, and I had to write it in, which took a bit. But here it is. The cover poster up top should give a clue as to how confusing it will be to understand (at least, when it comes to the roles of the Queens of Darkness compared to the three fairies). The stickler is who is positioned as whom in terms of magical powers, and in terms of leadership, because there are two different groups of positionings. However, I drew a chart (or a collage with labels). Hopefully that’ll help it make sense.

This post answers questions grouped under the following topics:

  • The Queens of Darkness as the Three Fairies of Sleeping Beauty (4)
  • Two Alternate Sleeping Beauty Versions and Killian’s (Possible) History with One of the Queens of Darkness (Or, Cruella De Vil and the Sorcerer) (5)
  • Ursula and the Sorcerer (and Killian [and Emma]) (7)
  • Maleficent and the Sorcerer (and Unicorns) (6)
  • Rumple and the Queens of Darkness (2)
  • Will the Queens of Darkness Survive the Season? (1)
  • Snow and Charming’s Secret (The “Arranged Marriage”) (3)
  • How This All (Probably) Fits with the “Goodbye” Scene (3)

Basically, if you sent me a question regarding any of the Queens of Darkness or Snowing’s Dark Secret any time in the past three months, up until a few hours ago, then your answer is probably in here. Oy, I have SO many questions left in my inbox I need to get to. I’m going to be posting another rapid-fire response soon, with about 30-ish questions attached. And then a couple having to do specifically with 4.12. Yeah, I think that’s all I wanted to say.

BLURB: I talk about the Queens of Darkness, each of them in turn, how all of them are connected to the Sorcerer (and Killian) in some capacity, and why they’re actually working for him and not Rumple. I tie everything back to Sleeping Beauty, of course, and explain why the Queens of Darkness are positioned as the Three Fairies and the clues that give this away. I start with two alternate versions of Sleeping Beauty, sent to me by my followers, and how those two alternate versions tie beautifully into the show and the show’s Snow White storyline and 101 Dalmatians storyline. I go into who Killian’s mother might possibly be on the show and why I believe that, I go into Killian’s history with Ursula, what he might have done to her, and why and how that would affect his relationship with Emma (see the Late Addendum under Ursula’s section for this answer), I go into Maleficent and her possible history with either Killian or his father, and also her Unicorn and how it gives away the fact that she’s a protector, I briefly speculate about Rumple’s role with the Queens of Darkness and what happened in Camelot, and why 4.11 found them on opposite sides, I go into whether the Queens of Darkness will survive the season, I go into Snow and Charming’s dark secret (which is basically a “new and improved” expansion of my original “arranged marriage” theory as found in my Sleeping Beauty analysis), and I go into how the unraveling of their secret probably contributed to Emma’s coldness towards them during the “goodbye” scene filmed the other day. I also briefly go into their possible arc in 4.20-4.22, and how they’re going to help Killian find Emma (I’ll expand on their arc in another question). Um… I think that may be it. This is basically just one big post regarding the Queens of Darkness and their connection to the Sorcerer, Killian and Emma, and Snow and Charming, and how that will affect the plot going forward. Okay? Bit of forewarning: it turned out long, however unintentionally.

Enjoy! :-)

Prince Merlin by StarshipSorceress

How awesome would it have been if there was an episode where Merlin and Arthur had to switch places? I didn’t even know I wanted this until the thought came into my head XD. And Merlin in royal blue really suits him :3

Prince Arthur: x


Merlin/Frozen AU

inspired by this post and by deanpendragon

At a young age, Morgana and Arthur were not only sister and brother, but also the best of friends. When an accident as a result of Morgana’s ability to conjure ice and snow almost kills her brother, the two kids’ relationship isn’t the same. Morgana shuts her brother out, concealing her powers from her brother, afraid of hurting him again. It isn’t until several years later that Morgana is crowned queen when she accidentally reveals her powers and runs away. In the mean time, Arthur thinks he found true love in prince Mordred and goes after his sister with a rough-hewn mountaineer named Merlin…

I think the differences between Colin Morgan and Bradley James can be entirely described by the fact that Richard Wilson was Colin’s role model on Merlin, because of his acting experience, and that Anthony Head was Bradley’s role model, because he was on Buffy the Vampire slayer and allowed Bradley to sometimes borrow his pink Nintendo DS.

I like the idea that sometimes during the summer, when the boys both get a night off, they go up to the battlements and just hang out for a while. Sometimes all they do is chat about their day but sometimes Merlin will do magic for Arthur’s enjoyment and then they make out. 


HTTYD AU: This is Camelot. It snows nine months of the year, and hails the other three. Any food that grows here is tough and tasteless. The people that grow here are even more so. The only upsides are the pets. While other places have ponies or parrots… we have dragons.
