“The show is about hope, about finding your true self, I hope young women watching it see somebody who’s human, who’s searching for herself, who makes mistakes, but who gets up and tries again and moves forward in life.” - Jennifer Morrison
Thank you, Jennifer. Thank you for the last six years and for giving us Emma
❝no one needs to save me. i’m the savior. i’m fighting for the people i love. ultimately i am a hero. i am hope. i am light. and light cannot destroy darkness, it can only create more light. i will not kill innocents. i will do what all saviors must. i will give hope!❞
“All those years of running – No, not anymore. I know what I’m living for.”
To my badass and beautiful savior princess, Emma Swan. She has touched my life in so many ways over the past few years and has inspired me every day to be a braver, kinder person. I will miss her so much.
- I don’t know if i mentioned this before but he’d be s o s o s o s o nervous about you two because he really likes you and he doesn’t wanna fuck up
- Him literally saying he loves you 5,000 times a day ?? like literally.
- “Hey Jacob wanted to-” “Absolutely not sorry.”
- Him picking out which dress you should wear on the off occasion you actually wear one
- I feel like the way he’d hold your hand is really odd ? Like not the normal kinda side hand but the full on lacing your fingers together? Kinda like this ??:
- Also the way you’d cuddle would actually be the cutest thing ever. Like you’d face each other, you two would probably giggle and talk about random things. Like even though he’s usually really cruel to everyone, he’s really sweet when it comes to you, especially when you two cuddle:
- He’d randomly sneak up behind you and hug you at different times during the day:
- You two would read together a lot. Like it seems really stupid but it’s not a huge activity but it still somehow makes you feel closer together.
- You once suggested how you thought he’d look cute in a bow tie so he got Olive and Claire and or Miss Peregrine (those cute lil baby fashion designers, bless them) to make one for him to wear to impress you.
- “If you look at my girlfriend I’ll kill you.”
“If you think about my girlfriend in a provocative way I’ll kill you.”
“If you d a r e lay a finger on my girlfriend I’ll kill you, bring you to life again and kill you again.”
- I feel like his nickname for you would be either princess or sweetheart (baby girl ??)
- He’d hate arguing so much like that shit tears him apart man
If I were still super invested in this show, I’d be livid, but instead I’m kinda just laughing. Emma “I felt like an orphan” Swan just chose to get her boyfriend back over saving her parents, and Snow “I lost my daughter for 28 years” White encouraged it. Like, did they and the writers forget that Emma isn’t an only child? Snowing spent seasons feeling bad about not being there to raise Emma, but didn’t think twice about giving up Neal’s childhood so Hook and Emma could be together, and Emma didn’t care about Neal having to grow up without his parents like she did. CS got re-engaged with their potential eternally cursed corpses in the room, and this was supposed to be romantic? Lol. Like I’m not sure who is more ridiculous at this point, Emma or Snow. The Charmings left Neal for an extended period of time already when they went to save Hook in the underworld, and were all teary talking about how they were missing so much with Neal, only to willingly do it again? Then Emma, lovesick Emma, is like “yeah I didn’t grow up with my parents & I missed so much, and Henry didn’t grow up with me & I missed so much, but ya know, Neal will just have to deal cuz I wanna be with Hook”. 😍
This is officially the CS show, nobody else matters.
Sometimes I’m just sitting around and suddenly I’ll think of what an incredible, obvious, golden opportunity the writers missed by not making Emma and Regina a true couple.
Like….how much more sense would the story make. Neal wouldn’t have to be killed off to get out of the way like they did so Emma could get with Hook, Emma would just realize that over the years she’s fallen in love with Regina and Neal could still be in the picture.
They could have made something almost groundbreaking in the realm of fairy tales and a story about hope, but instead they’ve flushed this shit show down the toilet so many times its getting clogged. Instead they chose to put two women together at the last second, make it canon, and now no one ever talks about it. ((I can’t be the only one who was confused as hell by Ruby Slippers, right??))
Henry would have the biggest, most diverse and loving family a kid could have without having to make sacrifices and having his memories of Neal wiped out. He’d still have a dad, two moms, and grandparents.
The writers could have taken this route and utilized their dynamic in a much more productive way and created a deeper storyline here, yet….here we are. And then I sit in disappointment over what’s become of the show.
Highlights from the Lana Parrilla and Sean Maguire panel at Storytelling Con, Barcelona, April 22, 2017
Lana came in first…..
Did she prank someone on set: “Well I stole Rebecca’s dog. She was not happy about that. But she stole my chocolates so I thought it was fair to steal her puppy. It was my Wicked Witch moment. I stole her Toto.”
Which Meryl Streep movie would you like to have been in: Mama Mia, the Deer Hunter, the Devil Wear’s Prada.
FMK: F Emma, M Zelena, K Rumple. “I would sleep with myself, I’d marry the Evil Queen, and I’d kill my mother. Nooooo. That doesn’t make anyone happy.”
Favorite con activities: “I love the meet and greets because they’re really intimate and you get to learn a little bit more about my people. Those are my favorite moment. Also just hearing people’s stories. These are fun. I like the panels because I like the energy. And it’s just fun because I get to see everyone and hear everyone, feel your energy and hear your voices and your shouting, your cheering, it’s electrifying.”
What was it like meeting Johnny Depp: She was seven all over again, and she had a crush on Johnny Depp during 21 Jump Street. She was starstruck and fangirled and looked stupid in that picture.
What has she learned from Regina or the Evil Queen: “I’ve learned a lot of lessons. And a lot of similar lessons that a lot of you have learned from these characters because they are very inspiring women. One a little bit more than the other. But even the Evil Queen I’ve learned lessons from her in what not to do. And with Regina just always striving to be the best me I could be for myself and others. That’s probably the biggest lesson. Sounds cheesy but it’s not.”
What is it like to live with four boys: Fun, loud, energetic, with a lot going on.
Best advise to give to your fans: “Be kind to one another. No more segregation, no more separation, no more hate, no more bullshit, I mean there is a lot of that happening in the world. Why would you want to be part of that? So especially in social media I see all the negative banters back and forth and it’s just… I just recommend if you get the impulse to want to say something really shitty to someone … go do something else.”
Sean Maguire joined at this point….
What is your favorite one liner: “I love fillet the bitch. I just think it’s so fun to say.”
They took a picture with an OQ banner presented to them by fans.
What would they as their characters use to describe the other…
Lana: “Chivalrous, Smells like Forest, Handsome, Father, Loving…”
What do you think the EQ and Robin are up to in the wish realm? “I know what they’re up to but we can’t say. […] I think they’re having a really good time.”
Question about how Robin and Regina never said I love you on the show: They both seem surprised that they did not.
Sean: “Well if that’s the case it’s an oversight on our part or the writers part or they’re really holding out to do that line. He’s already dead and you are still holding out?”
Lana: “I feel like they had to have said it…”
Sean: “I think you’re right… […] it’s because Robin and Regina are really shy… But did you get the sense that we both felt that? [Audience affirmative] Well then we did our job.”
Lana: “I’m here to tell you all that Regina and Robin Hood loved each other.”
Sean: “We certainly did.”
Lana declines to sing again… which … she does a lot at cons.
Sean: “Lana was the one on my first day, Lana was one of the first actors on the show to say hi to me and welcome me to the show. So I was really … it’s like the first day at school and when someone who has been there a while welcomes you it makes you feel really relaxed. So I was very, I loved her straight off the bat, I was like ‘oh she’s nice. We’ll get along well.’ not knowing we’d end up working together.
Lana: “I saw Sean before he saw me and I felt a warmth and a kindness and a sensitive sweet soul and you can see it. And I thought that’s my Robin Hood. So I went and introduced myself. And I knew we’d get along. And Sean knows this I’ve told him this a million times he’s been like an angel for me on the show and I love him so much. And I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful, beautiful, love interest, co-star, friend, we really enjoy working with each other and I was so glad he came back this season. Honestly when Sean’s not there it’s weird. He brings so much light and laughter, he is, he makes everyone, the crew smile, everyone laugh, he’s missed.”
Does Regina think Emma is too good for Hook:
Lana: “Ahhh I mean I feel like Regina … I feel like I’m going to say yes for them but honestly I think that Hook has come a long way …”
[At this point the audience starts making noise…]
Lana: “Shhhhh do you want to answer the question or do you want me to answer the question? You may not like my answers but that’s okay, it’s still my answer.”
[Moderator/Translator: “Drop the mic.”]
Lana: “So I think that Hook has come a long way. I don’t think that Regina necessarily likes him very much. She tolerates him. And she supports her friend. All the Swan Queens are going …”
[Moderator/Translator goes ‘Swan Queens chill’]
Lana: “I have to look at the story as it’s written so I’m answering the question as the character and what is written. And I don’t think she really cares for Hook. She’s always sarcastic, she’s always belittling him, she puts up with him, and if he makes Emma happy she’s happy. Now I’ve lost all those fans…”
: “No you haven’t.”]
Lana: “I’m just kidding. I know I haven’t.”
Lana: “Well we don’t know if there is a season seven. So we don’t know what is going to happen but we’ll see. In the meantime there is a lot to catch up on in life. We’ve been working on Once for six years so … it’s important to take time for yourself and to try and try to reconnect and try to get some things done on a personal level. Who knows what lies ahead.”
Sean: “The show finishes filming around April … and those going back go back in July and Lana and I and a lot of the cast in that time travel around the world. We go to Brazil we go to Paris which we love and we’ve had an amazing time meeting all the wonderful fans. But it sometimes doesn’t leave us a lot of time to do the personal things that we want to do…”
Lana: “No rest for the wicked. But we’ll see. I hope you follow us no matter where we go.”
Best day of your life:
Lana: Being born.
Sean: When his son was born. Lana and Ginny told the assistant director to send him home when he showed up to work the day after his son was born.
A-List celebrity is hard enough as it is, with paparazzi discovering her when
she so much decides to go visit Starbucks for ten minutes. But, she has a plan
and she has tricks that keep her relatively average.
Plot: Killian is a single father, and his daughter is enrolled in Emma’s dance class. He has nobody to watch his daughter after class, and he’s often late, so Emma usually sits and talks to the girl until she is collected from the dance school.
Summary: Based on this prompt I found in the depths of tumblr; “I’m a single parent and my child takes your dance class and thanks so much for always staying after class to watch him/her when my boss is an ass and keeps me past my off hours and holy cow you’re pretty/handsome and really sweet/kind and wow I should be late more often so we can talk. Say how do you feel about private lessons? For my kid- yea, yea, for my kid”
The class had finished almost an hour ago, yet little Daisy Jones was still sitting in the locker room, with her teacher, Miss Emma. She was quite the adorable little thing; petite yet slender, with these enormous, crystalline blue eyes to rival a porcelain doll. From what Emma gathered about the girl in passing conversations, much like the one they were currently engaged in, was that she only had a father -her mother had passed when she was very young, she didn’t remember her all that much- and, she was an only child. Emma had since helped the girl pack away her belongings; shoes, spare tights, hair grips, and helped her to pull on her sweatpants and outdoor shoes, ready for her father to collect her.
“You know, he’s probably just late again.” Daisy shrugged, playing on her iPad as she glanced across to her teacher, who was curiously peering out of the window to the street below, looking for any plausible passing visage of the girl’s father.
