When I asked my sister to give me a prompt that I could do while stranded here without my Wacom, she said to do a portrait of “Cap’s pouty friend”… elsewhere on Tumblr, wartimebucky has been posting some NEC-inspired flash art, and so this happened ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
First, I want to THANK OUAT for 6 seasons of beautiful story telling and THANK YOU to Jen Morrison, Josh Dallas, Ginny Goodwin, Emilie de Ravin, Jared Gilmore, Rebecca Mader for playing characters that we loved and will miss. We will miss you all :)
I love how season 6 ended, might be an unpopular opinion, but I did like that it didn’t go the way we thought. Twists are a part of tv shows and it would make it boring if we could really predict everything right. This ending makes it so you could stop watching now and just know that there were happy beginnings and that the story goes on. The ending can just be open-ended.
You don’t have to watch season 7, but I know I will. I want to see what happened to Henry to put him on the opposite coast? How was he in the Enchanted Forest and what attacked him? Who is the Mother? What family is Lucy talking about? So many questions I want to be answered. Will I be as devoted and obsessed as I was about seasons 1-6, probably not, but I still want to watch it.
I know, logically, for his family to be in trouble that means there is some kind of separation and something had to have happened for Henry to be so far from his family, but I don’t want to live in a world CS isn’t happy. What I want to know the most is how Killian, Regina, and Rumple play a role in all this when so many are not going to be there? I would be more okay with it if there really were just new people and the original cast be guests
I hope we find out more about what season 7 holds sooner rather than later :)
Brooklyn Nine-Nine might be the best show on network television right now. I had such a crappy week and my heart is so full because of that last scene with Jake and his dad. Because I think that might be the first time I’ve ever seen a show (or at least a network show) admit that being a biological parent isn’t enough. On any other show Jake and Boyle’s roles would have been reversed - Jake would have been resentful and suspicious and Boyle would have insisted that yes, his dad made mistakes “but he’s still your dad”. And then Jake’s dad would have apologized and come through because that’s the fantasy.
But Brooklyn Nine-Nine isn’t any other show and it had the courage to admit that “but he’s still your dad” can only excuse so much. That sometimes parents just suck, sometimes they never apologize for it, and it’s okay, healthy - right, even - to cut them out of your life until they suck a little less. And if they never do, well, that’s on them. You have nothing to feel guilty about.
Jake Peralta is not a bad person for telling his dad to stop calling, and neither am I.
