Milah could have forgiven Rumple, except…

One of the most important things Milah and Rumple ever said to each other was this:

Milah: Why can’t we just leave?

Rumple: We’ve talked about that.

Rumple shoots down her pleas, dismissing them. It’s something she brought up to him before, and it would have been the thing to save their marriage. If they had left that village, and Rumplestiltskin had chosen a new name so no one would have ever heard of him, they could have fixed their marriage. But he was too afraid of change that he wouldn’t leave. So far, his cowardice is the canon reason we’ve been given as to why they couldn’t leave.

Milah had faith in Rumple not to be a coward, at first. What’s sad is that his reasoning for coming home wasn’t pure cowardice, though most saw it that way. He wanted to be there for his son. Her faith in him was shattered because of his father’s actions and she saw him as no different than his father.

I think over time she could have forgiven him, except it’s hard to do that when everyone in your small village is shunning you and whispering behind your back (or to your face) like ‘how could you marry and love such a coward, snicker snicker snicker’. In medieval times women were usually seen as extensions of their husbands, especially if you’re a peasant woman. She would have bared the same shame that Rumple did. So instead of seeing his actions as dedication to fatherhood, she ended up hating him for his cowardice. If they’d done from the start what she suggested and left town, they could have salvaged their marriage. But he was too cowardly to leave his little town [and change his name], where everyone knew what he’d done, so they suffered.

((You are making me like Hook!! I can't like Hook!!! He sunk my ship!!!))

ooc - I must be doing my job right.


I’m not sure which ship you’re talking about… If it’s a literal ship, then I have to say that Hook clearly has done his job as a pirate right. If it’s Rumbelle, that ship hasn’t actually sunk (if you’ve been following the spoiler filming pictures and the like, Rumbelle is still sailing, just in a slightly different way). If it’s Rumplah, that ship sunk before Hook docked in port. If it’s Swan Thief or Swanfire, Neal sunk that ship eleven years ago (though it might have a life preserver or two out there). I can’t think of any other ships that he might be accused of sinking.

Still two weeks out, but this is what I need from you:

Rumplah Moments!

Favorite lines, or just scenes you liked in particular.

drabbles or videos or whatever you might like to see. Next week I’ll open it up for Bae related things so be prepared for that.

This month will need your help to thrive, and I’d reaaaaallly like it to do well. My beloved pirate queen deserves it as much as anyone else. Lets show the fandom that an under rated character can be fleshed out and shown love too.

I want the k. --humblespinner (Maybe it's one of his previous fantasies before his wife rips his heart out?)

8:Eyelid kiss (let’s say prego Milah everyone was happy)

She smiled when his hand grazed across her belly, curled up on their small bed. It wasn’t much, but it was home, and soon one to house a family. She closed her eyes and kissed the tip of his nose and then his eyes, pulling his head to her shoulder and pressing a final one to his hair.

How do you feel about your husband? Do you love Rumple?


I don’t love what he makes me feel… I don’t love how stubborn he is and how he refuses to try to make our lives better… I don’t love how he is no longer the man that I married. He’s just a coward who won’t fight for our happiness.

It was never going to be easy, they both knew that. But it didn’t matter, not a damn bit. They were young and in love and that seemed to be enough.

It didn’t matter that he had the reputation of his father hanging over his head. No. She never saw that in him. Not her sweet Rumple. The town might have looked down upon him, but she did her best to lift him up. Small things to bring out that smile and give her the chance to steal a kiss or two. 

They didn’t have much, but what they did have was home. A bed to sleep in and keep each other warm. They had one another to lean on when times were low and laugh with when they were grand. 

They were happy, and together, and that was all that mattered.

//yes let me love on you pre ogre war style xD

Spin, spin, spin, all he bloody did was spin, and she sat in the corner in her rocker and smirked, watching her tedious husband work the wheel. The talk of starting a family had come up a few times, but he was on the shy end of starting things when it came to that. Milah, however, was not. With a smirk she stood and crossed the room with purpose, promptly placing herself in her lap and wrapping her arms around his neck. She laughed at his shocked expression and took the advantage of his slightly open gaping mouth by sealing hers over it. Winding a hand in his hair and dipping her tongue in to gently caress his own.

9.A romantic kiss

She doubted he ever be the first to make a move, despite his feelings for her. All the shared late afternoon walks, or pick-nicks down by the creek. Hand in hand, sharing the occasional shy laugh and  a coy bump to the shoulder. 

He’d walked her home, he always walked her home, and Milah would stand there, as always, lip in teeth and wait. But not today. Today she took that step forward, hand wrapping around his and tugging him forward that extra bit before their lips met in a soft kiss. She went in again, a little firmer this time, hand on his cheek and a soft hum escaping the back of her throat. She grinned when she pulled back, laughing quietly. 

rumpleshtiltskin said:

"If we ever managed to salvage another life. If I was ever able to get another job anywhere else with my leg." His expression softened. "Despite what you think, that I don't listen, I know exactly how you felt with what the village did to you." And she should know that he did. Gods knew that she saw it happen to him since he was but a child. "And despite what that pirate made you think.. I loved you." And if he was honest, some part of him still did. --humblespinner

She sighed and ran a hand down her face, “Killian didn’t force me into thinking anything, Rumple. I know you loved me, I just…I wasn’t that girl anymore. I wanted, no, I needed more. And this life, wasn’t going to give it to me.”
