and-neverland

Imagine meeting your ex Peter and you get in a fight where you tell him you loved him and he goes...

  “Did you really, y/n?” Peter asked, at first wearing just a serious frown, but now you noticed his eyes glistening. “Cause when you left Neverland without saying goodbye, it sure didn’t feel like it.”

Last night, I was asked a simple question: “Can you tell me what the appeal is of Trixie Mattel, because I just don’t get it”. So, I simply replied:

“Well, for me, she’s a very captivating character. She’s basically an extreme parody on drag itself. I love that she makes fun of drag, in which drag makes fun of pop culture and life itself. And you also have her extreme makeup aesthetic. It’s not to be taken serious at all, but it’s very precise. And the fact that she’s a makeup artist? It’s kind of an oxymoron in itself. How brilliant is that? Her drag in itself is the joke. And she’s so conceptual. There was always different levels of the thought process behind her looks. It was never literal with her looks. ‘You want a resort look? Ok. I’m going to give you Barbie competing in a tennis match at the resort.’ 'You want a conjoined twin? Ok. I’m going to be the ugly twin that was always "the butt of the joke” when our mom put us in pageants as a kid, and I never won.’ It was always a bigger story. I felt like she brought something different to the show.’

You may not get it, but I got you.

Y’know how in the OUAT fandom certain characters have foods associated with them? Stuff that occurs in fic all the freakin’ time? Like Regina has lasagna and Emma and Henry have hot cocoa with cinnamon? 

Why have we never done this with Peter Pan and cake? 

We learn in 4x16 that Pan commissioned Hook specifically to bring him cake

And One of Malcolm’s big selling points of Neverland to Rumple is that “you can eat cake all day and not get a stomach ache.” (3x08) 

So. Pan and cake.  It’s a thing. 

yeah yeah I know nobody cares about Pan anymore

The Power of a Fairy (1/2)

(A/N: Its Tinkerhook Tuesday!  I think with the lack of Neverland Adventure Time we got to see, and how little of these characters we got to see interacting, this needs to be done.  I wanted this to be a short-ish little one shot, but I started on Neverland feels and couldn’t hold back.  Sorry to leave you in the dark, but this was too much fun to rush!  Part 1 is pretty tame, Part 2 will arrive next Tinkerhook Tuesday. We’ll see how out of hand it gets.  I also I am terrible at titles so don’t judge and read on. Enjoy!)


“Permission to come aboard!” Hook called, cupping his hand at his mouth so that his voice carried up the ladder to Tinkerbell’s tree house.

“Permission granted, Captain!” Tink called down cheerfully.  Hook ascended the ladder and found the fairy sitting on her hammock, greeting him with her usual sprightly smile.  "To what do I owe the pleasure?“

"I was wondering if you would care to accompany me on an adventure.” He grinned and raised his eyebrow, eager to pique Tink’s interest. She tilted her head and raised her own eyebrows with a smirk, which he took as an indication of curiosity to hear more. “I’m embarking on a bit of a journey and thought the pleasure of your company might improve the nature of an otherwise tedious errand.” Hook tried to sound as cavalier as possible, attempting to shroud his true motivation.

“Errand, huh?” There was a distinct skepticism in Tink’s voice.  "Let me guess.  Pan needs you to retrieve something for him from outside of Neverland,“ she chortled. Hook hung his head slightly, acknowledging the demoralizing nature of their unfortunate, but ultimately necessary business arrangement. "And where is this little jaunt of his sending you this time?”

The cool thing about creating anything, it’s okay to break form if you know the form. Picasso didn’t just say I’m gonna draw people into cubes; he spent years drawing landscapes and studying what has worked before, and because of that knowledge and mastery, he decided to skew off the beaten path. Back in the day, you could argue that the Chorus Line score was a bit poppier, even though we consider that a Broadway classic. But there are a lot of rules with musical motifs, rhyme structure, false rhymes, half-rhymes, non-true rhymes, and the Sondheims and the Hammersteins of the world would say are just nails on a chalkboard to hear the rhymes in today’s popular shows. It’s important to keep an ear out for what the population is listening to, and to ignore that appetite would be really selling yourself short of making this art form accessible.
