not today gideon

In Today’s Magic Story...


  • I’m too old for this nonsense. – Liliana Vess
  • Demon calling her out, and Liliana responds by setting her hair.  If you’re gonna slay a demon, slay ‘em with your looks.
  • Speaking of Demons, Razaketh calls out Liliana’s age.  Rude.
  • Razaketh has flying.
  • What was that?  Involuntary motion?  Is this Razaketh’s doing?  Or is Raven Man taking initiative?
    • Nvm it’s Razaketh.  I think.  Although speaking of Raven Man, he was able to stop Emrakul from warping Liliana, albeit not for long.  Shouldn’t he be helping now?
  • Well this is depressing.  Liliana, a character who always had a way with wit and words, is rendered nothing more than a puppet to Razaketh.  For someone who always took charge to be reduced to this…  I really feel for her…
    • Also, am I the only one expecting Liliana to ask for Raven Man’s help, a la Princess Leia?
  • While being controlled, Liliana rots Chandra’s & Nissa’s hands. Or at least withers them a bit.
  • Finally!  Raven Man!  Nice to see you again!
  • Shut your mouth, Liliana – the dude is the one thing you can hear over Razaketh, and you’re telling him to go away?  I know you’re an independent person, but you’re running out of options!
    • Also, this is a very interesting note.  Raven Man says he’ll leave if she kills her demons.  Just what does his agenda hold…?

Mother Knows Best: Rumbelle 6x17 fix-it

Summary: Post 6x17 “Awake,” Rumple returns to the shop to tell Belle that the Black Fairy has Gideon’s heart, and Belle can’t keep silent any longer. 
Rating: T    WC: 3294
A/N: Because I needed Rumple to talk to Belle about the Black Fairy having Gideon’s heart, and for Belle to confront the Black Fairy. Thanks to the wonderful @rowofstars for looking this over.

{On AO3}

This conversation wasn’t going to be easy.

Rumplestiltskin slowed his stride as he approached the front door of the shop, pulling out his pocket watch. It was nearly midnight, and he turned the key in the lock with a leaden heart. He wasn’t anxious to reveal what he had learned to Belle. The truth was, he’d been bluffing when he confronted his mother about holding Gideon in thrall. It had been a lucky guess based on magical intuition, and in her surprise, the witch had admitted her guilt.

He opened the door and hung his overcoat on the rack inside the door, pausing to light a few candles that dotted the tops of the display cases. Stop stalling, fool. He ran a hand through his hair and sighed, then dragged his feet toward the back room. Belle would yet be poring over magical texts both light and dark, as she had been every night, until the wee hours.

It was one of several areas on which they’d come to a compromise. They would pursue any and all possible ways of bringing their son back to them; nothing was declared off limits so long as they agreed to it together.

Today in “Annoying Gideon” we present… this.


so today is just a trash day for me????

i was talking to one of my friends since i’ve been thinking about what gideon would turn out like when he’s older. and i ended up throwing at her this whole older au sort of thing where dipper grew up tall and somewhat lanky but hot and gideon ended up hitting a major growth spurt and ends up taller than dipper, but he’s enormous both in heft and muscle. dipper finds it hot but he keeps that buried so deep he doesn’t even admit it to himself. and gideon is comfortable with his weight and will use it as a threat when he’s really mad.

well, his innie became an outie after a particularly heated fight and neither of them are handling it ideally.

things i cant deal with today

- gideon was supposed to be concieved IN THE SHOP

- emilie’s last scene she filmed for s6 was “sweet” and with bobby

- emilie wants rumbelle to move to Hawaii and rumple to wear Hawaiian shirts

I can’t help but thinking Belle and Rumple are the kind of parents who would write down everything about their baby. Like, they’d have a stack of notebooks full of notes like “Today Gideon managed to sit for the first time” or “Today Gideon used this complicated word for the first time” but also “Today Gideon somehow caused the destruction of half the pawn shop” and “Today Gideon said this incredibly cute thing that makes absolutely no sense, and we absolutely need to write it down.”

Don’t mind me, I’ll just sit here and die of cuteness overload.
