i destroyed the quality on purpose

I pray that God equips you to receive His attitude today, an attitude that breeds peace, joy, understanding, patience, kindness, and gentleness, so that by imparting them onto others, you receive the same in respect, blessings to be counted, and the gift of a mind that is always aware of bringing out the best in others. And seeing that this is good, may you be filled with calm for the rest of your day as you throw your cares and burdens on Him who upholds you in His right hand. I pray that you not neglect each hour that passes when God reveals something that needs your attention, whatever it may be, look at it as an opportunity to refocus on Him, because a mind that is stayed on Him is a mind that reflects His character and spirit, one that is full of will power, ambition, and direction. I pray He strengthens your mind with intentional thoughts, purposeful thoughts that communicate love and life, and desires that have valuable fruition, so that idleness, worry, fear, confusion, anger, jealousy, greediness, frustration, pride, hatred, and any other weakness that feeds off of negativity is destroyed and crushed. Let all pessimistic qualities within our human nature be cast on Him, the One who frees us in mind, heart, and spirit. In Jesus' name, I ask these things, amen.

Isaiah 26:3 - You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You, all whose thoughts are fixed on You!

Ephesians 4:22, 23 - You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds.

By His Grace, Sheela

So if Chloe was destined to die (which is totally bullshit) and preventing it basically fucked the universe wouldn't that also mean saving Kate would also have sort of impact? At first she died regardless if Max was friendly and helpful. She used her rewind to prevent her from dying that should've done something as well. Even if Max someone convinces her not to kill herself without the rewind it should still have horrible effect, right?

(2/2) And to add to the last message about Kate. If just taking her out it without rewinding doesn’t mess up reality the same could basically said about just stopping Nathan and saving Chloe without the power. Dontnot just straight up fucked us in the end it seems.. Sorry about the multiple messages and rambling it’s just the ending doesn’t make sense to me and on top of that Chloe deserves better than dying miserable and alone on bathroom a floor..

Thanks for the asks anon! Putting thoughts about this under a cut as usual to save people’s dashboards…

If hook is the worst...who is Rumple then? Fucking Satan?

Well dear sweet anon you must not be paying much attention to the show because it is quite obvious that Rumpelstiltskin is cursed. He is in a constant battle of wills with the Dark One. If this hasn’t been made clear to everyone in seasons 1-4, then it is certainly being made clear now. I can assure you Emma is more than likely going to do some pretty wretched things this season and do you think any one is going to call her Satan? No. They are going to say “poor emma, nothing is her fault. It is all the curse.” And yet some of them (I am sure you are included in this) are not going to give the same extension to the man who battled the curse for 300+ years. 

And yes, he battled it, because you can see the good within the monster in many cases. You can see his need for love (something a monster has no care for), you can see his concern for his family (what is family to an all powerful darkness), you can his his grief and sorrow when terrible things happen (satan would never show grief). 

Rumpelstiltskin, at the heart of it all is this man:

He is a man who loved his son so dearly, that he shattered his own ankle and faced lifelong ridicule just so the boy would never have to grow up fatherless. Just as Rumple himself grew up fatherless. 

He is a man who loved his son so dearly, that he took on a curse to keep the boy from having to go to war. He killed Zoso with the hope of using the magic for good.

He is a man who lost his beloved son because the curse of the Dark One was too much for him to handle. 

He is a man who spent YEARS looking for his son, and sacrificed everything to do it. Look at that man ^^ he is not satan, he is a broken human being.

He is a man who loves Belle so so MUCH, and all he wants to do is please her, and protect her. Look at that third gif, the Dark One wanted revenge, but Rumpeltiltskin pushed that urge aside to roll Belle away from a car. He wants nothing more than to keep her safe, and make her happy, but as season 4 showed us, he can’t always control his actions enough to do that. 

Still confused? 

Let me make this very clear this:

When he is like that ^^, when he is evil and manipulative, and creepy, it is because he is possessed by a demon. 

The sad thing is that he had control over the darkness to a degree too, you can so obviously see it in season 3. But then Pan happened, and Zelena happened, and anyone who truly cared to understand the nature of the man’s burden could see that the curse had become stronger. That the demon, the ‘Dark One,’ had taken back over and in turn destroyed everything Rumpelstiltskin tried to have. 


Now this is why Hook (who will not be getting any gifs in this post cause ew) is the worst: because he is just a nasty guy with no excuse. Sure it is sad that Milah was killed, his lady love and all that, but honestly Milah was a bitch so I really don’t have much sympathy for the pirate. Also he has no qualms about pursuing Emma who is, by all intents and purposes, his stepson’s ex girlfriend. Creepy. 

He has no redeeming qualities, he only pretends to. A common occurrence is this: 

Hook: Emma I love you, I have changed for you

*Emma Turns Back*

*Hook proves he has not changed at all, that he is just a poser*

He did this ^^ just this past episode when he taunted Regina for being too soft. Like her becoming good was a weakness. That is not a man who is truly redeemed, for if he was redeemed he would be praising Regina’s softness, not condemning it. 

AND FINALLY

Because I know more Hook lovers will probably go “well regina is ten times worse than hook, she shouldn’t be redeemed either!” 

Regina is completely redeemable in my opinion. She is a) the victim of terrible childhood traumas. I mean her mother was Cora, it is amazing she didn’t turn out worse b)a victim of manipulation from the Dark one. 

She is a broken woman, and while her actions are not always justifiable she does truly try to fix what she did. She realizes how wrong she is, and for the love of her son she becomes a better person. 

That doesn’t mean she hasn’t made her mistakes in her redemption arc, but if this past episode has shown us anything it is that she is GOOD. 

To sum up: 

Rumpelstiltskin- poor soul cursed by Dark One, who has battled the evil within him for 300 years 

Regina- product of terrible things, who has overcome her need to be evil, and has truly redeemed her self

Hook- creepy creep creep who is the epitome of fuckboy.
