what the actual flippin’ heck is so hard to understand about the fact that “emma swan should absolutely want to erase gideon off the face of the earth” is absolutely reconcilable with “oh my god this poor sad tol, someone save him”???

it’s called dramatic irony, and the entire point is to make us want to cry every time emma’s point of view is upheld. because she doesn’t know what we know, and gideon is powerless to change that

i mean ffs the entire first season of this show was defined by the dramatic irony of us knowing who all these characters really were, and being able to fill in the blanks that they couldn’t. and of knowing for a FACT that henry was not crazy, but having to watch everyone dismiss his beliefs

so we’re stuck between a rock and a hard place now, too, knowing emma has to protect herself; but also that poor gideon is in the same situation hook was back in 4a

except he’s being controlled by his abjectly evil grandmother rather than his occasionally okay-ish dad. and he’s got terrifyingly powerful magic. and his attempts to kill/hurt emma are completely out in the open (unlike 4a, where we were also the only ones who knew what hook was up to on gold’s behest). AND no one has any reason to see this tall black-robed villain from another realm as a hero, other than his poor dear mum

sooooo unlike 4a, emma and her family pretty much have every right to be distrustful

….poor gideon. someone please save him from the curse of being a stiltskin

anonymous asked:

Hiya :D this is kind of a self insert lol how would the suitors react to a MC who looks younger than how she is? Like she's 19 but looks 10 XD

I’m so sorry for taking so long with this, please forgive me… and don’t worry about it being self-insert, if it applies to you, I’m sure it applies to other people as well~ Enjoy <3


Giles:

  • “Hello, young miss, may I help you?”
  • The first time he sees you walk into the palace he thinks you’re a lost child or something
  • Little did he know that he had just unleashed your anger
  • So you tell him, not-so-politely, that you were indeed an ADULT
  • Immediately he’s apologising to you, but he can’t help smiling fondly at your adorable-ness
  • Even after you’ve become princess, he can’t help but be sweet to you
  • It’s slightly patronising, but you know he means well

-

Leo:

  • “What a cute princess we have.”
  • Honestly at first he’d just think that you were the cutest thing
  • When he started to tutor you he’d tease you a little bit here and there
  • But he’d always take it seriously if anyone, including the bureaucrats, gave you any trouble
  • But after getting to know you, he’d see you as very reliable and someone that he could trust
  • You didn’t let your looks get in the way of being a great princess, and he loved that about you

-

Alyn:

  • “This is our new princess…?”
  • He wouldn’t believe it at first, thinking that it’s some sort of joke because you looked so young
  • It didn’t take long to explain that you just looked very young for your age
  • He was still a bit suspicious but quickly warmed up to you when he saw what a good job you were doing
  • He felt very fiercely protective over you too, walking a little too close to you when you went out to ‘make sure you didn’t get lost.’
  • In reality he just wanted to be near you because he thought you were cute and he liked it

-

Sid:

  • “Hey kiddo, how ya doin’?”
  • Obviously he’d know that you’re a full adult but he’d say things like that often to annoy you
  • He gets a kick out your Grumpy Face™
  • Giles would always tell him off for teasing you, and while it did aggravate you, you learned to laugh along with him
  • If he ever did feel like you actually got offended though, he’d stop immediately
  • Despite the fact that he’d make fun, he’d let you know every once in a while that he did indeed see you as a grown-up

-

Louis:

  • “Aren’t you too young to be the princess?”
  • This man wouldn’t miss a beat in telling you you couldn’t do it, a commoner and too young
  • It would take a while to convince him that you were the WOMAN for the job
  • Eventually he’d have to acknowledge your skills in ruling the country and so he’d slowly warm up to you
  • Being such an amazing person, and looking so adorable, it was a win-win for him
  • I can see Louis poking a little bit of fun here and there during dance lesson too

-

Robert:

  • “You’re such a sprightly princess.”
  • I can just imagine that gentle smile of his as he watched over you as you fight hard to win the approval of all those around you
  • Seeing you trying your best even as the princess warmed his chest
  • He want to support you no matter what, regardless of what you looked like
  • I think Robert would react the least to your youthful face
  • Partly because he was already familiar with it, but also because he just saw past all of that very easily and looked at you from the inside

-

Rayvis:

  • At first he wouldn’t understand, “what is this?”
  • He wouldn’t say or do anything though, logically reaching the conclusion that you’re probably just young looking for your age
  • There’s no way that Wysteria would make the new princess a child… right?
  • In the end I feel like it would be something that goes unmentioned, because at first he does’t know you well enough to say anything
  • but then when he gets to know you better he figures it’s better just not saying anything at all
  • Along with Rayvis, he’s react the least, just not seeing any point in making a big deal out of it

-

Byron:

  • “So you’re the princess elect of Wysteria…”
  • When he first laid eyes on you in the ball, he naturally ignored you, looking for the princess
  • It wasn’t until either Giles or Albert points you out to him that he actually focuses on you
  • He was surprised, to say the least, you looked very young - I feel like he’d say it too
  • You tried not to be too angry, he was the king of the powerful-country-next-door, after all
  • Although he couldn’t miss the fire in your eyes as you told him you were an adult woman
  • He’d secretly like that spark, it showed potential and made him want to get to know you better

-

Albert:

  • “Are you really capable of ruling a country?”
  • Of course you had Albert’s support from the start .-.
  • He was doubtful enough of you and your country as it was
  • You weren’t about to let the fact that you looked younger than you were become another reason for him to doubt you
  • So you continued to work diligently not letting him get to you
  • He had to admit that you were a very capable princess, maybe he was slightly impressed…

-

Nico:

  • “You’re so cute, princess, we almost match!”
  • He’s honestly love your young appearance, I feel like he would be the most supportive and the least likely to tease
  • In a way, he would understand not being taking seriously because you looked/acted/were too young - he faced the same treatment
  • He would be just as supportive as normal, although he might give you more milk than necessary from time to time
  • Once you got closer, he’d probably do things like pick you up when you wanted to get high things, instead of getting you a stool/getting it himself, just to have an excuse to hold you and make you both giggle

I hope this way okay, please let me know :D

Do not repost/re-upload, screenshot or edit but please do like, reblog and share :D And remember that my requests are open (*/^▽^*)/

“This isn’t gonna be easy. Ultimate goal, we’re here to try to figure out a way of doing things that doesn’t mean us killing each other all the time. Which, let’s face it, is not how any of us are used to doing things. Me included. I’ll be honest. I have no idea how it’s gonna go…but that’s life, isn’t it?”  -Buffy.

  • Giles: young lady you are not going to that party!
  • Princess: *sarcastically* yes mother

  • Giles: ...well I guess.... fine you can go
  • Princess: Yay!!! Thanks Dad *high-fives Leo*
  • Leo: don't get into too much trouble, kid

We found two more YA books by and/or about people of color for you this week. Be sure to check them both out!


Nobody’s Goddess (The Never Veil #1) by Amy McNulty
Month9Books

In a village of masked men, each loves only one woman and must follow the commands of his “goddess” without question. A woman may reject the only man who will love her if she pleases, but she will be alone forever. And a man must stay masked until his goddess returns his love—and if she can’t or won’t, he remains masked forever.

Where the rest of her village celebrates this mystery that binds men and women together, seventeen year old Noll is just done with it. She’s lost all her childhood friends as they’ve paired off, but the worst blow was when her closest companion, Jurij, finds his goddess in Noll’s own sister. Desperate to find a way to break this ancient spell, Noll instead discovers why no man has ever loved her: she is in fact the goddess of the mysterious lord of the village, a Byronic man who refuses to let Noll have her right as a woman to spurn him and who has the power to fight the curse. Thus begins a dangerous game between the two: the choice of woman versus the magic of man. And the stakes are no less than freedom and happiness, life and death—and neither Noll nor the veiled man is willing to lose.

Endangered by Lamar Giles
Harper Teen

The one secret she cares about keeping—her identity—is about to be exposed. Unless Lauren “Panda” Daniels—an anonymous photoblogger who specializes in busting classmates and teachers in compromising positions—plays along with her blackmailer’s little game of Dare or … Dare.

But when the game turns deadly, Panda doesn’t know what to do. And she may need to step out of the shadows to save herself … and everyone else on the Admirer’s hit list.
