i wanted to make a regina edit so much

it is truly amazing to me how excited squers are for the princess emma scenes solely because she’s wearing makeup. 

I was looking through the Emma tag and there are so many of them pointing out how great it is that it’s just Emma and Regina and Emma looks so much better because she’s wearing makeup and she’s not with Hook. “She doesn’t look tired or sick anymore!”

It is AMAZING to me that a community that is supposed to love and uphold two central women on a show can be so incredibly misogynistic. Ship swan queen all you want, make edits and fics and speculate your eyes out, but is this how you really like Emma best? Cursed, not herself, and most importantly wearing makeup? That’s the big takeaway? She’s happy now and you can tell because her lips are red? 

In canon, Emma is happy. She has a family and that includes both Regina and Hook whether any of us like that or not. But Emma’s choice to not wear makeup does not factor into her overall arc and her happiness. 

Like shiitttttt. Wtf. 


The bunny had fun with After Effects. Please don’t use any cuts without permission or remove my watermark. Thanks.

I both needed and wanted to learn more about After Effects (special efx software), so I…er…borrowed some footage from Once Upon A Time and havoc ensued and I thought it would be fun to make a trailer type video to share some of the craziness. There’s some kind of edit in every cut, sometimes several. Much fun was had, not near all cuts were used, etc. Story? Mostly, “Look, pretty things!” Past that, knock yourself out. If someone writes the story to go with the trailer, let me know.

In case someone is wondering, yes, I know I bastardized a Nietzsche quote.


Thank you all so much for your participation in voting! There were a couple of that were really close! I’ve changed the week to August 9 - August 16, because of a conflict with Regina Appreciation week, and we all love Regina, so I didn’t want to overlap those that might want to do both. Also, because of confusion between a couple of the prompts, I combined a couple into Day One, and you can choose of those which you want to do!

Feel free to write fics, make edits/manips/videos, make playlists or anything you can think of that would work to show appreciation for this lovely pairing! I will be tracking the tag #ecweek 

Please do not post your take on the prompts before the day of, but feel free to start working on them now! 

After much wait, here you are! The italicized text is there to help you come up with ideas, though each prompt is up to your interpretation!

Day One: Pre-curse Enchanted Forest - Prince Charming and the Evil Queen/Shepherd David and Young Regina/Huntsman David and Bandit Regina OR Canon/AU Merge - Shepherd David and Bandit Regina/Huntsman Charming and the Evil Queen 

Day Two: David didn’t leave after Regina made dinner - He stayed after she made him lasagna

Day Three: Trapped/Lost - David and Regina get trapped or lost somewhere together

Day Four: Missing Year - Takes place during the missing year in the Enchanted Forest

Day Five: Role Reversal - Evil King and Shepherd Regina

Day Six: Sleeping Curse - One of them goes under a sleeping curse

Day Seven: Snow’s heart didn’t save Charming canon divergence 

Day Eight: Choose any of the prompts that didn’t make the list. Free Day!

Feel free to message with any questions!
