real deal neal

Neal, oh Neal. The more I look at all the gorgeous Swanfire gifsets on my dash, the more I remember that

That is why, when I see CS on my dash, I can clearly see something is wrong. That something is missing. That all that love Emma Swan is directing towards Hook? It was meant to be NEAL’S. That those scenes were meant to be NEAL’S. That everything that was given to Hook despite the lack of LOGIC and CONSISTENCY… Everything… Belonged to NEAL. Being the third parent to Henry. Being a hero. Being central to the story. Those things were meant to be NEAL’s.

Because Neal and Emma’s journey makes sense. Emma and Hook’s journey doesn’t.

And it is actually mind-boggling that there are people that can claim otherwise.
