“I think, ultimately, she is the product of true love, so genetically her makeup is going to want to find her own true love. What I’ve tried to maintain within her is that there is always this flame of hope. Even though she is so guarded and protected, there is this little flame, and you see glimpses of it at times with the Sheriff and with Hook.”
She’s not the type of girl you’re used to… and you’re not quite sure if you like it or not. She’s not easy to get to know. She’s guarded and closed off… anything even slightly personal is harder to get to than Fort Knox. With her – it’s always one step forwards and two steps back and it’s SO frustrating… But you think maybe you kind of like it… because when you see those little glimpses of her you know you’re probably the only person who ever has.
She can’t be charmed… she’s not that type of girl. She manages to twist your compliments into insults or downplay them into jokes, and again… it’s so frustrating!!! Why can’t she believe that you like her!? Why can’t she just accept that she’s beautiful?
She can’t be bought because again… she’s not that type of girl. Jewelry, flowers, gifts… none of it interests her and she gets angry if you try it. She seems to think it’s effortless, and to her credit she’s kind of right… you’re simply repeating the same rehearsed steps to try and make her like you that you did with every other girl… and it won’t work… because she’s not like other girls.
She’s demure yet provocative… She runs hot and cold… She’s self-conscious, but also self-assured… In fact, she’s just about every contradiction you can possibly think of and yet you’re somehow addicted to this roller coaster ride because you know that even when she’s being the complete opposite of herself she’s still the most ‘real’ woman you think you’ve ever met and you just want to get to know her more. You want to see all of her… get inside her mind… know everything there is to know about her…
But she won’t let you. She’s not that type of girl.
And when the day comes to let her go and kiss her goodbye forever, you can tell she wants to cry… But she won’t… because she’s not that type of girl. She never was. She never will be…
And that’s exactly what you loved about her most.
Josie: They also feel they are owed a look at his body. That’s what tends to happen at this moment, is he lifts up or opens up his garment and shows them his wounds. You see a little glimpse that what they want is to see those marks on his body, and he finds something repulsive and shameful in that.
I think the biggest thing I love about The Office is how they make every character super natural and relatable and then whenever theres a small sweet moment you can see the little smiles or the glimpses. Idk. I feel like if we could see how people appreciate the little things we do for each other in life maybe it wouldnt be so depressing
“In the meantime, obviously there’s always been a connection, some kind of “kindred spirit” element, between Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Emma.” (x) - TVline 03/01/13

“Hook will definitely be instrumental in helping Emma face the Wicked Witch and helping Emma accept parts of herself. Accept the magic that she has and using it in the ways that she needs to in order to protect everyone. So, he’s definitely becoming a part of her life in the sense that he’s helping her accept parts of herself she’s never accepted before.” - (x) E!online 04/11/14
