Um... I’d love to know why ANY of these scenes are wrong or inappropriate.
I have missed almost all the drama (and that makes me so happy). But there common themes in these three pictures.
Dad and Henry….
Grandpa and Henry…
… and father figure (Mom’s boyfriend/true love) andHenry.
Henry has and has had these men be a significant part of his life! He needs male role models. And, okay we can’t see his face in these shots lol, but I think it’s undeniable what these moments must mean to him.
I haven’t read many comments, but I know they are out there. I don’t get it. I’m literally shaking my head in utter confusion over why people are threatened for the bonding time that is being displayed in ANY of these pictures.
Emma-Does nothing but fight for Henry the whole of season 1, makes him feel safe, cared for and loved, indulges him in his fantasy so he doesn’t feel alone, always puts him first.
Emma-Gets hated and pushed away for lying to Henry about his father in order to protect him and let him think good things about his father.
Killian-Makes Henry feel important and cared for, repeatedly risks his life for him and has died for him, is happy when he makes friend and takes pride in his accomplishments.
Killian- Is hated because of a bullcrap idea planted in Henry’s mind by the Evil Queen.
Regina-Gaslights Henry for a decade, makes sure he can’t make friends, kills someone he loves, destroys his beloved castle, erases his memory after telling him she was going to kill his whole family, hurt him to drive Emma away, tortured his grandparent in front of him to force him to live with her, physically restrains him with magic when he tries to leave her, neglects him to rape someone and locks him out of the house when her boyfriend dies, is creepily possessive when Violet comes into his life.
Regina-Gets a True Love’s Kiss, has Henry apologise because “I should have just lived under the curse with you” and whitewashes her with “you’re not a villain, you’re my mom”, acts like her parent.
Neal-Makes fun of Emma right in front of Henry, acts entitled to him, allows Henry to disrespect Emma, puts the whole realm (including Henry’s family) in danger to ‘get back’ to him.
Neal-Is remembered as a great father and practically sainted.
my all-time ultimate fave character: Emma Swan. I know that she made some terrible choices in season 5, but I love her development. I can really connect to her on how she feels in certain aspects. I am so grateful for her character.
a character I didn’t used to like but now do: Rumple. I used to dislike his character, found him shady, but then we got to Skin Deep and it got me rewatching the others. He’s now one of my favorites.
a character I used to like but now don’t: Killian Jones. Once again, one of those things where I rewatched and realized just how terrible his character is.
a character I’m indifferent about: Marco/Geppetto. I know that sounds weird. I get why he did what he did and I don’t nessecarily hate him, I just am pretty meh about him.
a character who deserved better: Do you have all day to listen? Haha. Neal, Rumple, August, Ingrid, so many.
a ship I’ve never been able to get into: Golden Queen. It’s not just because I ship Rumbelle, tbh. I just spent so many seasons thinking that she could possibly be his daughter, I can’t picture them together.
a ship I’ve never been able to get over: Swanfire and Rumbelle. Hopefully, Rumbelle has some hope this coming half a season season.
a cute, low-key ship: Violet and Henry are precious. <3
an unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: I don’t know if it’s unpopular, but I feel like a certain fandom likes to crap all over it: SwanQueen. I still hold out hope for it, even though it’s bleak.
a ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: C$.
my favourite storyline/moment: I loved all of season 1&2, along with most of the Frozen arc. Though I really hated how they started writing Snow’s character, I loved Elsa and Ingrid, Emma accepting more of who she is. The shattered sight curse arguments between Snowing had me laughing.
a storyline that never should have been written: Snowing’s uncharacteristic, plot hole filled arc in 4B and the Underworld. As I said, so many plot holes associated with 4B and same with Underworld, not to mention how poorly they handled it.
my first thoughts on the show: This show is going to be amazing, I’ve never seen anything like it.
my thoughts now: Stop assassinating the characters and my favorite ships (Rumbelle, Snowing, etc.). Also: why in the world did you think we needed a musical episode?
