This is a long-time coming buuutttt I guess I should finally say something. So first off- no, the blog isn’t dead forever! I’ve just been taking a very long, very unplanned hiatus due to personal reasons that I’ll touch on a bit.
Putting it under a readmore because it’s a lot but TLDR version:
EQP is not dead! It’s just on impromptu hiatus until I figure some real life things out.

new character. Tell me about David. How do you imagine David saw
Regina… evil monster with no humanity but 2.22 we get the “we’re family”
moment. What do you think he meant by that and how do you think he
sees her in season 4? Do you have any thoughts on how that relationship
My head canon about David’s tactlessness is that he’s
actually trying to play the same game Snow and Regina play with each
other but he’s not as good at it so it’s not snark but jabs he ends up
lol that sounds like a pretty safe bet tbh. Though I don’t think he minds coming off as more offense than humorous. They’ve got this odd sibling rivalry dynamic going on, and I think they both secretly enjoy, even if it’s just to have someone to argue with.
I think he begrudgingly accepted her as family simply because he knew he could never win an argument with Snow against it. His “we’re family” being more for Snow’s benefit than either of theirs. But as time went on, he began seeing her as such. I’d like to say it started in early S2 when he saw Regina’s humanity come out over Henry and Daniel, but he relapsed when Snow and Emma returned. Probably with the reminder of what he lost with them because of her. So again, I’d credit his change of heart to the mine scene in 2x22. Her willingness to sacrifice herself, her and Emma saving the day, and then carting off to Neverland forcing them into a situation where they had to work together. All those things pushed him to see her in a different light. Then the missing year continued that trend.
I think he’ll always hold some level of resentment towards her for what she’s done to his family, but I also think he acknowledges and appreciates the good she’s done for them, and what she would do again. The lengths she’d go through to protect them. He’d protect her simply because he knows how much she means to his family, but he genuinely does seem to care for her to some degree. Especially when he’s reminded of the better side of her. The person willing to do anything for those he loves.
Note all the times he’s shown physical affection towards her:
After just saving his family…
Actively protecting his family…
Having just watched her give his daughter and grandson a happy life together…
Putting her life on the line for the town…
(I’m sure we can attribute Josh for a lot of this but I think it works for their dynamic.)
His feelings towards her in S4 were a little wishy washy. I’d have thought that after remembering the missing year, he’d be slightly warmer towards her, but we only ever really saw them snippy with each other. That’s where I think that sibling bond comes in with them. They argue cause they like to. And considering Regina was even colder and more testy in the missing year than in SB, I could see that having been their dynamic during that time (fought just because they could but still worked together to protect the kingdom) and them just falling back into that after they got their memories back.
I think that dynamic is comfortable for them, but any time a situation gets serious, they put that aside for their family and take care of each other.
You know, I have so much work to do and I stop for 5 minutes cause I’m like “Hey, wonder what’s going on in the tumblr verse”. And everytime. Literally EVERY time, without fail, my dash is full of cats.
So here I am, half an hour later liking my 50th cat photo.
