GOD BLESS AMERICA | a southern gothic mix

Songs for the fear of hellfire, for the wind that carries unanswered prayers, for the witches still out there who didn’t burn nor drown nor hang, and for the one black heart that beats the same underneath a ghost town, a dry-cracked wasteland and a deep dark bayou

So….I know everyone is VERY MUCH against the idea of them trying to give Killian an knew love interest, but because I love angst, I kind of want a little bit of that. 

Like in the he keeps trying to move on, but he can’t because he keeps having flashbacks of a woman who he either thinks is dead or thinks doesn’t exist. That would be one way to keep CS in the story w/o Jen, to have him keep flashing back to moments that have already happened…

I’d like to thank the wonderful @jen-iii from the bottom of my heart for creating the art you see above!

While we’re on the topic of thanks, thank you all for reading this blog for the past year and being consistently kind, supportive, and hilarious. I don’t have future vision like Garnet, but I hope that for the entire duration of my online career I never take for granted how lucky I am. Here’s to another great year!

funny story but there used to be this elizabeth swann blog on my dash way back when who whined and cried and talked about how bad their portrayal was once jen’s @hangtherules popped up and honestly after like two years of following jen now …. yeah. they had no chance.

i know this show has hope as one of the themes & i know there's nothing i can do but i can't help but fear that everything'll go downhill if jen doesn't renew & all we'll get it'll be an unhappily EA. i'd be literally crushed if they'll kill E/separate CS for ever if they won't get to a deal bc if CS can't get a HE, who will? sure, i'll get over it but the whole thing will be ruined for me. i can't live in fanon. i know that all is spec, but i do think they'll try to keep colin&lana even w/o jen

networks just dgaf about fans all they want is money & the worst case scenario might happen- jmo leaving and colin not… i know that logically it couldn’t work unless they’ll write a twin or separate killian a la reg but i dont think they care. it wouldn’t make sense to keep killian w/o emma w/ just regina&zelena. he has no connection whatsoever w/ those but you know… they could throw a curse or wtv & make stupid things happen. do you feel like they’ll give CS a he no matter who comes back?

You’re right when you said networks don’t care about fans or story continuity. Networks care about numbers. About turning a profit. That’s it. They’re in the business of making money. I mean, what they tried to do with Castle is a prime example of that. 


Jen isn’t a network exec. She’s expressed her commitment to both Emma and the Captain Swan storyline numerous times, ex. “ I have a really fierce loyalty to the show. I am fiercely protective of the character. I feel like so many amazing things have come to my life because of it. It’s really made my life better in so many ways. I don’t have any interest in abandoning something that is such a special part of my life (x).”  Jen’s not going to leave the show in such a way that completely destroys both Emma’s journey and the Captain Swan relationship, both of which are intrinsically linked. Anyone who’s ever listened to a Jen interview knows she has entirely too much integrity for that. And BTW, so does Colin. 

Jen and Colin are a package deal
. Trust me on that. They’ll leave together or stay together. And that’s not a network exec thing. ABC suits could give two fucks. That’s a Jen & Colin thing. They will remain true to the story bc the CS fandom has been blessed with two of the most amazing human beings on the planet. Two people who recognize that art is more important than the bottom line.

I recognize this is a stressful time for CS fans. I get that. But I’m positive we’re going to get our Happy Ending regardless of Jen & Colin signing onto S7. CS has been endgame since 2x06. Nothing will ever change that.
