The scene opens on the Swan-Jones house. We go into the house. It looks different than before – actually well-lived in now. Books and toys are scattered about and pictures hang on the walls. The camera pans past some of these pictures. There are obvious ones hanging like Emma and Killian’s wedding photos, Emma and David by the Sheriff’s car, but there are new ones, as well. Emma and Hook in the hospital room cradling a small bundle, happy and exhausted grins on their faces. There’s Henry in a graduation robe, flanked by both Emma and Regina. There’s a shot of Regina with a mystery character we haven’t seen together, clearly at their own wedding. There’s even Belle with Gideon, smiling happily. Basically, a few years have passed, and it’s been a good few years.
We hear a squeal, and the scene turns to Emma and Hook preparing a child for bed. Emma’s phone rings, and she learns that there’s a crisis on the docks. Looks like it’s a job for the Sheriff.
“Sure you don’t need backup, love?”
“Please, after the demagorgon last month, this is gonna be a cakewalk. Sure you can handle bedtime?”
“It’ll be a cake walk.”
They kiss, and Emma goes off to save the day. Because she’s Emma Swan, ass-kicker extraordinaire.
We stick with Killian and little Swan-Jones. It’s story time, and the kid holds up a “Once Upon a Time” book. They begin to flip through it, and we realize that this book is different. There are new stories than what we’ve seen.
“Your brother’s been busy, but how about I tell you about a story that isn’t in your brother’s book.”
The kid’s eyes go wide. It’s interested.
“You see, Once Upon a Time, your Aunt Regina…”
And there we go. It’s a new season. The season is literally this story featuring everyone who is coming back. There can be flashbacks within flashbacks. Emma doesn’t die. She’s off kicking ass. We learn that most everyone gets their HEA/HB. If there’s a season after that, it’s another story. The series ends with Hook telling the kid to go to sleep, tomorrow is a big day, after all.
“It’s your Mum’s birthday.”
If we get JMo to come back, the scene cuts to her party at Granny’s. Everyone is there. Henry is wearing a college sweatshirt. Snow and Charming are there. Regina is being her fabulous self with her love interest, who we meet in the story, by her side. Emma, surrounded by her family and friends, blows out the candle. We go full circle.
I remember being teased relentlessly throughout my childhood and my teenage life where people would say that because of my skin I’ll never be beautiful enough, they would even recommend skin bleaching products. So as a child I quickly realised that as a dark skinned girl I was not considered beautiful enough… At that time I didn’t know that it was the negativity from the people around me that was causing me to hate my skin and myself for that matter. I remember a time during school photos where a girl shouted “she’s too dark! You won’t see anything on her ID but her teeth!”, of course everyone laughed it out… And so did I…. Because I didn’t want to make it seem like I was offended… Their feelings felt more important than mine… After all growing up I was always reminded of how unlikely I was of ever being beautiful or finding someone that found my darkness beautiful…..
As a 19 year old today I sit here and say “I never gave in to skin bleaching”, “I was constantly reminded of how ugly I was but that only made me love myself even more….. I began considering myself as someone different, someone beautiful and out of the ordinary.”
Your skin no matter how dark it is that when you smile you can only see the glow of your teeth is worthy of love, your skin is that of a goddess and you should never feel anything about your skin but self love. I write this to all of the people that have gone through similar and worse, you don’t need to learn to Love your skin, the love is already there… You just gotta unleash it.
I would like to hear some stories of yours if you’ve ever gone through the same thing…. Message me on Instagram.
Jeremy’s massive thing of Aveeno and tissues. Same.
Will Connolly has nice legs.
Jeremy tucks in his shirt? What a nerd.
The choreography in More Than Survive is legendary.
Chloe is an asshole. Also, I’m pretty sure Jeremy was going to defend Jenna? Good boy.
Jeremy is so gleeful when he sees the sign up sheet? Fuck everyone who says he only signed up for Christine- this boy clearly wanted to do it, he was just too scared to go for it.
The sad look as he realizes that the signup is just going to end in humiliation.
CHRISTINE’S LIP BALM??? Get moisturized!
IS MY MACBOOK PRO HARD DRIVE
Brooke’s hair is gorgeous.
Jeremy bops along to Michael’s rap, which is adorable. It also shows that he’s only really comfortable around him- compare Jeremy in the chorus of More Than Survive, where he’s flailing and totally unable to keep with the choreography to Two Player Game, where he and Michael are completely in sync.
Handshake is repeated in Two Player Game! Motif confirmed!
Speaking of which, Michael himself is totally with the choreography. I think this can be taken as either him accepting his place in the hierarchy, or at least having the social skills to navigate it. Either way, it makes sense that he has trouble relating to Jeremy’s frustration with fitting in- in his own way, he already does.
Also, the prop and scene transitions are fantastic? The entire set is ridiculously versatile, and it’s incredible how seamless the transitions are and how they blend into the dancing. Also, the fucking sky bean bags. Who do you think had to stand up on the catwalks and drop those? I wanna know.
At 7:40 we have some quality hand flapping action? I mean, this entire scene is great- Jeremy stands up straighter and looks so genuinely excited, and he runs up to the poster, so ready to get genuinely into this play… and then Rich calls him gay and publically humiliates him.
Speaking of Rich, he’s kind of a dick in this, isn’t he? I mean, the whole bullying thing definitely is not a mild issue- Rich spends most of his time attacking Jeremy. At 2:40 he straight up punches Jeremy in the nuts, he actually lays hands on him during the “BOYF” scene, and when he’s singing to him, at one point he’s clearly about to punch him. Hard.
Speaking of that moment, I want to point out Jeremy’s instantaneous reaction to Rich raising his hand. That’s not a normal reaction. Normal people block their faces, obviously, but the way Jeremy automatically does it before Rich even finishes raising his hand, that’s not normal. That’s what people do when they’ve been hit. A lot.
Anyways, Michael is amazing? Such a supportive friend. So many good friendly touches. 9:45’s little face pat, and the entirety of Two Player Game stick out.
“WELL I’M JEREMY!”
And lemme talk about I Love Play Rehearsal too. I love Christine, and she’s so amazingly extra in everything she does. I also love how happy Jeremy is listening to her, even if he’s too nervous to talk, and how Christine is totally cool with that! They have a lot of great chemistry in this!
I also love how it’s absolutely obvious that Christine is horrible at reading the room and is constantly unaware of the innuendos she’s making. My beautiful, oblivious daughter.
And, she’s so comfortable with him! You go girl! Shout at the sweaty man!
Jeremy is a ball of spastic energy. Constantly. I can relate.
Shout out to Jeremy putting his hands over his lap. It’s okay man. We all have boners for Christine.
Jeremy’s little smile during her song? It’s adorable. 100% wholesome. He’s so in love.
And Christine poking his… like, everywhere? Cute as hell.
And for that matter, Jeremy’s nervous tic of smoothing down his hair? Really cute. He does it a lot too!
Jake is apparently also on the Frisbee Golf Team. Make of that what you will.
Mr. Reyes hugging Christine. Quality comforting. My poor daughter, who then proceeds to harass him during the Hot Pocket Break. Perfect girl.
She also seems really hesitant initially with Jake. Her body language is very much “Leave me alone please.”
Jeremy has canonically had to go to the nurse over breakdowns.
Rich has seen Mr. Reyes urinate. This isn’t important, but like. It happened. Why.
Rich spends the entire discussion before his song urinating while rolling his hips. And doesn’t wash his hands. Then puts said hands all over Jeremy. Jeremy has indirectly touched Rich’s dick.
Rich’s lisp comes back when he shouts at Jeremy, then he slaps himself. Damn, that’s heartbreaking.
Also, irrelevant to Rich, but Jeremy’s hands are in his pockets 85% of the time. Like a bisexual penguin.
Rich at 20:33 keeps touching Jeremy’s face. He still has not washed his hands.
AGAIN, RICH WAS ABOUT TO SERIOUSLY FUCK UP JEREMY’S FACE, AND FROM HIS IMMEDIATE, REFLEXIVE REACTION, WE CAN TELL THIS HAS HAPPENED BEFORE.
Please, someone make a tutorial for the SQUIP hand gestures. I love them.
Rich makes Jeremy stand straight. Foreshadowing much?
When Rich sings “Rule!” at 22:25, he does the rising fist motion from Pitiful Children.
Jeremy’s flailing at 23:09, beautiful anxious deer child. He’s beauty, he is grace, he’s gonna shove a SQUIP in his face.
“Aren’t you gonna wash your hands?”
Rich flashing Jeremy while he shouts about how the SQUIP makes it so he doesn’t get piss on his hands.
Rich is a nasty boy.
Jeremy’s reprise of the SQUIP Song is great.
Michael has reentered the narrative and they both sound so happy to see each other.
Beanbags, our twin heavenly Lords and Saviors, are made with space fabric.
Jeremy and Michael move in perfect tandem, like holy shit. They straight up swap controllers for a bit and keep playing as they talk and dance and annoy each other? Incredible.
This is the most wholesome thing I’ve ever seen. So full of holes.
Michael tickles Jeremy? GOOD SHIT.
Jeremy steals Michael’s controller and his face has such glee. So playful. So pure.
Friendly reminder that part of the reason Jeremy took the SQUIP and kept obeying it was fear of become his father- depressed and negligent.
The awkward hell of having to stare at Mr. Heere’s crotch. Every time he shows up. Jeremy, I feel your pain.
Mr. Heere goes in for the hair tussle and is brutally rejected by his son. In general, Jeremy is really upset by his parents, both his dad and his deadbeat mom.
Michael is super insecure.
Honestly, this whole thing is like watching the build up to a tragedy. It’s honestly unnerving to now Jeremy’s going to get the living shit kicked out of him.
Jeremy flipping Michael off at 29:07 is my aesthetic.
Rich and Jake helping with the scene transitions are amazing.
Michael’s constant glaring at Spooky Stock Boy is legendary. Quality moral support here.
Every Time Jeremy’s voice cracks, I triple in power.
The robotic backup singers and theremin during Stock Boy’s reprise are my sexuality.
Tag yourself, I’m massive hat lady.
MICHAEL IS SO FUCKING HYPED FOR THAT PEPSI, DAMN SON.
More quality Jer-flaps at 34:23.
JEREMY’S SEIZURE. HOLY SHIT MY SON IS IN PAIN. ALL WHUMP IS CANON.
I mean, seriously, that’s an actual goddamn seizure. That’s horrifying.
NO JENNA DON’T RECORD JEREMY DYING, GET FUCKING MEDICAL ATTENTION.
Christine is so fucking worried, and she pushes Jake away for making fun of Jeremy. I love her.
“Suddenly you’re 21 and screaming along in your car to all the songs you used to listen to when you were sad in middle school and everything is different but everything is good.”
I turned 13 in 2008. The Myspace era was coming to a close and Facebook became the new preferred social media platform. The music I had found in my preteen and early teen years majorly shaped my current music taste at 21 years old. Like for most people, middle school and high school were not easy times. The music that I came across on Myspace and the early YouTube years reflected the real emotions and struggles that I faced. It made me not want to only listen to songs like Gold Digger, Ms. New Booty, Smack That, My Humps, I Kissed a Girl, or whatever else was playing everywhere. I craved music that I could relate to. I needed music with true emotion behind it.
Anyways, here are the songs that got me through my preteen and early years and shaped who I am today. They’re in no particular order.

Summary: Reader and Peter (slant rhyme woo) are friends and both on the Avengers. They’re training in the gym and things get s t e a m y…
its so weird for me seeing media representation of two girls kissing or something b/c it makes me think; is this how straight people feel when they watch romance movies? iv never felt anything while watch a heterosexual kissing scene, i watch entire romance movies waiting to feel something, to connect to the characters and then i watch Hayley Kiyoko’s 5 minute music video about two girls and it has me on the edge of tears and it makes me so upset b/c to me finding content like that 5 minute video is so rare sometimes i start to think that i am incapable of feelings. this is why representation is so fucking important
(Updated) So, during Gerard’s 2nd panel today, someone asked, “What’s a good idea that you’ve had that never got to see the light of day?”
And Gerard goes, “I wanted my band to dress like Chimney Sweeps. Like, I really wanted to have us be in chimney sweep costumes and no one wanted to do it and it got shut down…. And I think it was an awesome idea! And this was before Panic! At the Disco by like a year! And then those dudes came out and I was like, ‘See?!’ ”
And then some girl shouts, “It’s not too late!”
Then he replied, “I’m one guy now…”
And another girl goes, “That didn’t stop Brendon!”
I love people’s writing about perfume, because it’s forced to be so creative. Scent is hard to talk about, so people have to resort to stories and metaphors, all of them intensely personal to the writer.
And when they don’t like a perfume, that creativity gives forth some of the best insults. I have here curated my favorites from Perfumes: The Guide by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez. The list is long, but trust me, they’re all worth reading.
A disclaimer: The same thing that makes perfume reviews fun to read also makes them super subjective. I have never found less of a consensus on anything than on perfume. In other words, if you find your favorite perfume on this list, please don’t take it personally (and don’t blame me- I haven’t smelled most of these myself!)
I know everyone is really upset about Narti’s death and it seems like the whole fandom is split in two because of Lotor’s decision to kill Narti and whether or not it’s justified. Well why don’t we get the answer from Narti herself?
A lot of people have been saying Lotor is a vicious killer or that Narti is a traitor who deserved to be killed. Or was she a traitor at all? We see in episode 3 of season 4 where her death takes place, the girls all shout out different things, such as “How did they find us?” and “We must have been tracked!” And then we get the long, processing pause from Lotor. He literally takes a whole 6 seconds to stop, think, then stare at Narti, who obviously returned the gaze:
She acknowledged Lotor’s gaze, she knew what he was thinking. She knew that he had found out. We can tell this by the specific close up to her and the way her head is angled to ‘look’ back at Lotor. And we all know how quick Narti is in battle.
We’ve seen the way she zips past her opponents and dodges their hits with ease. She obviously knew Lotor was staring at her, and that he was furious for not only putting his plans in danger, but the lives of everyone on that ship as well (especially the other generals). And the charge Lotor took at Narti was a clear, easy dodge for her. It was a basic move in which even I theorized before the season came out that if Narti was on the other side of the blade, she would dodge and mind control him. It just seemed so easily set up like that. And yet… She stood there:
Not in a defensive position. So essentially what I’m saying is: did Narti let herself get struck down for the sake of the team? Now I don’t know how probable this is, but it’s another thing to think about. Narti probably spent years with these girls and considered them family, since Lotor had not only accepted her as being a halfbreed, but having a disability as well.
Now we don’t know if Haggar had actually mind manipulated Narti before she got on the ship with Lotor, but I wouldn’t say it’s not probable, especially with these frames:
What if she knew she was being brainwashed, since her own mind control powers could have interfered with Haggar’s?
Idk, this theory is probably far from true, but it’s another option to look at.
