Thoughts on SQ hug from a multi shippers POV
I’ve had a day or so to be happy, sad, up, down and all over the place and I have finally reached a standing point I think.
My first reaction was to be very happy for Swen and also rather shocked if I’m honest that after so many years it finally happened. But then I saw everyones disappointment and heartbreak and I was confused, after so many years it finally happened but then I watched the actual Sneak Peek and I was rather… upset myself.
It was so short, and the way it was filmed just briefly focusing on Emma, no real body shot just a quick 3 second hug. If we think back to so many other ships first hug it is always longer and just…more? If that makes sense. It felt rushed.
I personally am not against it being because of the proposal and that may hinge solely because I am a multi shipper, but I acknowledge SQ’rs have a right to feel upset over the circumstances, personally I think it was a natural progression to their relationship at this point to hug over a happy moment for Emma.
HOWEVER and it is a pretty massive however, why now? after so long?? was this their first on-screen hug?? this particular moment??
What would have been a better “first” moment, Morgan, you might ask?
After Emma found out about what happened to Daniel and Regina was in tears maybe? I guess not though.
Or when Regina had to say goodbye to her son, a moment and feeling Emma knows very well how hard it is to do, and yet no hug.
After Emma saves Regina and then asks for it in return? A scene where idk she hugged her entire fam except for Regina?
After this long and heartbreaking scene where Emma tells Regina she believes in her. Nope not then either.
There are so many times it could have happened for the first time and I can’t understand why this was the one chosen…
*sigh* I’d love to know everyone else’s thoughts!
