You probably noticed from all my likes, but I absolutely adore your Fic Real Inside (and the artwork too). That's such a neat and refreshing idea. It will be interesting to see where you go with it!

Thank you! <3 <3 <3 I’m so touched you like my fic (I really enjoy your stories as well-really liking the Howls Moving Castle Rumbelle fic you’re doing.)

I’m looking forward to it myself-it’s a fun journey as a writer and I can’t wait to delve further into the backstory and depth of the story itself.

While I'm happy to hear emilie is filming, I'm concerned that her filming with the rest (sans Robert) means that Belle have a more passive role in that scene. That often seems to be the case when Belle is filming with the charmings. I've been hearing someone wish she became a villain. I sort of get why. At least the villains get an actual voice when they're in scenes with the Charmings/Regina/hook

Belle’s biggest weakness

I’ve been thinking about this the past couple days, and I think Belle’s biggest weakness is her desire to be heroic and to be accepted by Charming and co. aka the “Heroes”

I’ve always identified with Belle more than any of ouat’s other characters, and one of the reasons why is how she’s treated by the heroes. First, she’s invisible and insignificant to them. Then, especially after Rumpelstiltskin is banished, they only come to her when they need something.

And she helps them, she always helps them, because she wants to be a hero. Because she wants to be accepted by the heroes. 

I also think that this explains some of her behavior in S4B. Charming and co. say Hook’s good, so she hangs out with him. Never mind he’s tried to kill her twice to her knowledge but three times total.
When the “heroes” come storming the shop, calling for the dagger and Rumple’s head, she is either A) to blindsided by this news or B) unsure how to turn them down. They’re heroes right? They must know what’s best?

Maybe I’m way off base, but just some thoughts.

Regina: This is all useless crap!
Belle: Hey! Hey, hey! Stop! Stop it! What—what are you looking for?
Regina: I need to destroy my sister. She has my heart.  Oh, relax. She can’t control me with it. I protected it from that. The problem is, I don’t know what she’s planning on using it for, which is why I need to take her out! That’s why I need your help. What do you have here?
Belle: “What do I have here”? Self-respect. Why on Earth or any realm would I help you? The woman who imprisoned me in a tower in her castle, then put me in an asylum for twenty-eight years, who’s done nothing but mentally and physically torture me ever since we’ve known each other!
Regina: Huh. Bookworm’s got teeth.
Belle: Get out.
Regina: Yes. I did all those horrible things… in the past. But right now, I need something to defeat the woman who’s puppet-mastering your boyfriend. She has your Rumple, and unless you help me, you may never see him again. I’m sorry, Belle. I really, really am.
Belle: So, I’ve been trying to match the ingredients that Zelena’s been collecting to whatever spell she intends to cast. It would really help if I knew what it so special about your heart. Does she just want it because you’re sisters, or…
Regina: I have no idea.

How that Belle and fake Killian conversation should have gone.
  • Belle:I just had the most awful thought... What if Rumple's already here?
  • Killian(Rumple):Well if you're concerned he's here, there's one way to know for sure... use the dagger command him to face you...
  • Belle:Great idea! I'll have him show up and stand on one leg just to make double sure!
  • Killian(Rumple):Wait! No what?-
  • Belle:No this is brilliant! I'll make him sing a song too! I'll know for sure it's him and if he's here!
  • Killian(Rumple):Never mind this isn't a very good-
  • Belle:Dark One... If you're here come on face me standing on one leg... and sing "All About That Bass"
  • Killian(Rumple):"Because you know I'm all about that bass, 'Bout that bass, no treble, I'm all about that bass, bout that bass..."
