With only one episode left of the season, I was thinking back to what Regina went through this year:
- Left by her son (yes, he cares for her but he did go to live with this biological family)
- Almost lynched by the citizens of Storybrooke
- Wraith almost took her soul
- Rejected by everyone in Storybrooke
- Forced to kill her resurrected true love
- Used by her own mother to gain power
- Manipulated into killing her own mother, only to gain one last moment of genuine love she always craved and then lose it immediately
- Double crossed and kidnapped
- Tortured for hours, barely surviving the whole ordeal
Yes she is horrible. But technically, she has been punished and suffered more for her sins than everybody else combined (and that was just since the curse broke).
When I bring him back….
…Will you still remember me?
…When I tell you how I…
…Will it end in a soft whimper…
Please don’t forget me…
…I always put up a strong front for you…
…but my biggest weakness…..
Losing you will kill me…I know it….
Don’t forget me, Sakura-chan….
Regina and love
My observations and interpretation of her character now that we have a fuller picture.
My RotBTD-Harry Potter headcanon
So in the crazy, wonderful world of RotBTD, the Harry Potter AU sorting I most commonly see has Merida in Gryffindor, Rapunzel in Ravenclaw, Hiccup in Hufflepuff, and Jack in Slytherin.
TBH these don’t quite gel with my feelings about these characters and these houses. So I wanted to share my personal headcanon and see what people thought.
The one exception is Merida; I agree that she’s a perfect Gryffindor. She’s courageous, adventurous, and strong-willed. She knows what she wants and doesn’t want, even if she doesn’t consider or understand the consequences. She can be reckless and thoughtless and lands herself into bad situations. But ultimately, she has the courage to do what is honorable and right.
I agree with those people who say that Hiccup should be in Ravenclaw. To me, Ravenclaw isn’t about smarts; it’s about being able to think outside of the box and see the world in different ways. (think Luna vs. Hermione) Think about the “password” to the Ravenclaw common room. It asks you to reason, not to recite facts. Hiccup was the one Viking in centuries who was able to see beyond the teachings that dragons were vicious beasts. Hiccup sees new possibilities everywhere, ways to improve everything. Hiccup also believes that the rest of the world doesn’t get him, or even sometimes that he’s surrounded by idiots. That seems like a pretty classic Ravenclaw to me.
I would totally put Rapunzel in Slytherin. It wasn’t originally a house specially made for corrupt, cruel, or generally bad people. It was for people who are ambitious, clever, and goal-oriented. Rapunzel is all about that. She manipulates pretty much everyone else in the movie to get what she wants: Mother Gothel, Flynn, the Snuggly Duckling ruffians, and Max. I don’t mean she does it in a sinister way, but Rapunzel has her dream, and she’s darn well going to make it come true. She’s very likable and can basically bend the world around her to make it work the way she wants, and I think that makes her a perfect Slytherin. (and we’re ignoring the whole pureblood thing here, this is purely about character)
Finally, Jack Frost. He’s totally a Hufflepuff. This house is for those people who believe that other people are worth it, and that doing good is its own reward. They have both integrity and compassion. They are loyal, friendly, hard-working, and supportive, because it’s how they believe they should treat others and how they should approach the world. Jack may be a prankster and “snowballs and fun times”, but keep opening up the nesting doll. ;) Jack believes at heart that life should be joyful and fun. As a guardian, he defends the dreams and hopes of young children and gets his power from them. This means he’s protective, and he knows the value and strength in each individual. His existence and drive revolve around other people, not himself. Sure, he’d pull ridiculous pranks on you without batting an eye, but he is the one out of the Big Four who will always be there for you with no reservations, ever. Not to say the others wouldn’t be there for you as well, but I see them getting wrapped up in their own projects or thoughts, or unable to understand how to help you. Jack is the one who would be sitting beside you and constantly telling you, “I’m here. You can do it. I believe in you.” And because he said it, you know you can. (shush, I just really like Jack Frost, okay?)
