Once Upon a Time first look: The Dark Swan rises!

There have been plenty of baddies to contend with over the past four years on Once Upon a Time, but in its fifth season there will be a new Dark One: Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison)—and EW has the exclusive first look at her transformation!

After sacrificing herself in last season’s finale to save Regina (Lana Parrilla) and her family, Emma is now trapped with the powers of an ancient evil. “Every part of her is fighting her dark urges,” executive producer Edward Kitsis says. “What happens when [the darkness] mixes with the lightest magic of all, and will Emma have the strength to fight it?”

The real question is how the powers of the Dark Swan — yes, that’s what they’re calling her! — will differ from Rumplestiltskin’s (Robert Carlyle). “How a Dark One manifests is specific to each person who takes on the mantle,” says EP Adam Horowitz. “Emma will have her own unique spin on what it means to be a Dark One.”

Becoming the Dark One “allows you to have the freedom to have no inhibitions,” Kitsis adds, which could play a role in exactly how Emma uses her powers. “We are going to be exploring love and what happens when you use it as a weapon and what are the things that it makes you do. In the past, we’ve said love is the most powerful magic of all. It makes you do many things you normally wouldn’t think you would.”

But there is hope. “The quest for Merlin is the quest to free Emma,” Kitsis says. Twist: That quest will require a new savior to come forward. Perhaps it’s time for Regina to step into the light?

As I’ve said before JMO has promo shots of her as DARK SWAN and here are some of them :):)

“I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people, rising from this abyss. I see the lives, for which I lay down my life - peaceful, useful, prosperous and happy. I see that I hold a sanctuary in their hearts, and in the hearts of their descendants, generations hence. It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known.” | The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Jarida Week Day 6: Dark Side

So, while working on this I was sitting on my butt trying to figure out what to do and I came up with this. kinda Snow White type thingy. Jack got turned to the dark side (they lied about the cookies) and forgets everything about Merida and the others. This leads to Jack being told to poison Merida with a poisonous apple. After that fragments of Merida begin to form in his mind and he realizes his mistake. (And for a happy ending he probably kisses her and brings her back to life *jazz hands*)

Anyhoo, I tried to be minimalistic about what I colored and tried to make it as monochromatic as possible :)

L.O.R.D (爵迹) Critical: Ages Below Critical
Chapter 4: Birth of the Soul (Part 1)

The tall and dark mountains rising on the sides,

Squeezing the blue sky into a tiny crevice,

The mouth of the valley,

The air impregnated with thick ivory-coloured fog.

The depths of the valley is hidden by the thick fog,

Nothing can be seen.

Occasionally an eerie howl can be heard,

Echoing faintly in the air.

Reading the epilogue of Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader makes me want to wrap Obi-Wan in blankets, give him an enormous hug, and tell him that everything is going to be alright. Or more precisely, it makes me want Qui-Gon's Force ghost to wrap Obi-Wan in blankets, give him an enormous hug, and tell him that everything is going to be alright.

HELLO THERE. Since I’ve yet to read Rise of Darth Vader I’m just gonna trust you that this is also a thing I want. Am gonna get that book soonish. I’ve heard promising things about it.

First look at Dark Swan!!! 😃 Are those some scales by her temple in the second picture or is it just the lighting making her skin look rough?

Jen looks so epic 😃 I wonder who the “new savior” is gonna be… It’d be cool if it was Regina, but I’m honestly hoping its Lily. That would be such a great arc for the character and show so much growth, cuz that would mean she would have to work with the people who cursed her and stole her from her mother (still waiting for that apology from Snow and Charming scene 😑) and Merlin said in season 4 that “the girls fates are forever entwined,” meaning there’s probably some big destiny involved. Lily came back into Emma’s life for a reason, and I don’t think it was just so she could reunite with Maleficent.

Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover them, and not to hide yourself from your own kin?

Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up quickly; your vindicator shall go before you, the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry for help, and he will say, Here I am. If you remove the yoke from among you, the pointing of the finger, the speaking of evil, if you offer your food to the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted, then your light shall rise in the darkness and your gloom be like the noonday. The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your needs in parched places, and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters never fail. Your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to live in.

—  Isaiah 58:6-12 (NRSV)
