John’s started reading classic fairy tales to Rosie at bedtime. Here are Sherlock’s reviews (on a scale of 1 to 5 stars):
Little Red Riding Hood: ★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
“I admire the girl’s independence, but this idiot child doesn’t recognize the difference between her beloved grandmother and a dangerous WOLF? The SAME WOLF she met in the forest less than an hour ago? And you think MY disguises are silly…”
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs:★★ ☆ ☆ ☆
“I like the part about the Evil Queen demanding Snow White’s heart – nice and macabre. So Snow White runs away to the forest and becomes a housekeeper for a gang of diminutive gay miners? They should’ve just ended the story there – I don’t care for all that pointless, predictable nonsense about the poison apple and the prince.”
Goldilocks and the Three
“If those bears were any worse at deduction, they’d work for New
“Thought you might relate to Goldilocks, love – you’re both picky,
impatient, show zero respect for others’ personal property…”
“Oh please, John. Goldilocks
is a moron – now, if Rosie wants to
learn how to perform a proper home invasion…”
The Three Little Pigs:
“It’s a scam, obviously. At least two of these pig brothers are guilty of insurance fraud, and the third
may be in on it as well. A wolf BLEW your house down? While straw and sticks
may not be the sturdiest of building materials, the lung capacity of the
average fully grown Canis lupus is not
great enough to produce the force necessary to demolish even an exceedingly shoddy
The Little Mermaid:
no pirates? Would be better with pirates.”
“I’d like to
know Rapunzel’s diet, genetic makeup (or at least ethnicity), cranial
circumference, surface area of her scalp, the height of the tower, the
surrounding climate and humidity level, what sort of shampoo/conditioner she
used, whether or not she used hairspray or styling product …numerous variables affect the tensile strength and growth rate of human hair, you know…“
“I love a
ball. The ball is good – beautiful gown, the prince in his dress uniform, love
at first sight, dancing the night away, AND a mystery! Yet it’s all ruined
because I can’t stand the utter STUPIDITY of trying the glass slipper on every
eligible maiden in the land…it doesn’t take a deductive genius to recognize
that’s a waste of time!”
one actually has some valuable lessons. For one thing, someone is always
listening – royal minions in a fairy tale, Mycroft’s cameras and covert agents,
the homeless network…we’re under surveillance of some sort at all times. Be
vigilant, be aware, observe. Also, if you happen to have a ridiculous name, OWN IT – there’s
no point trying to keep it a secret, because it’ll come out eventually, JOHN
A bit of canon
divergence in which Naval! Killian replaces August in the Wish Realm.
“It’s just,” he shuffles his feet and scratches at the back
of his ear, a furtive glance shot at her from beneath thick eyelashes. “The
Princess I knew liked pretty things.”
She tilts her head to the side and considers him – the blush
that stains his clean-shaven cheeks, the uniform that stretches tight over his
shoulders. He’s the same age here as their own realm, but he feels more
innocent. Subdued. He bites his tongue against his remarks and regards her from
the corner of his eye, careful to keep appropriate distance from her at all
times. But he’s still, well –
Mal headed out their room, leaving Evie alone with her thoughts.
And boy, were there a lot of things running through her mind this morning.
Maybe boy wasn’t the right word.
warnings: internalized homophobia/ sexuality criss but it all works out, kinda anti b*l but not anti ben
a/n: dedicated to the wonderful @cherylstoni, who voted for this 300 times. it’s also her bday today so send her some love <3
Even though a short stretch of glittering water separated each other, Auradon and the Isle were two very different places.
On the Isle, people were concerned with serving their own interests and amassing power to inflict as much pain possible. There was no time for friendships or nurturing in a place full of thievery, lies, and betrayal. Instead of running in picturesque fields and saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ like the kids in Auradon, they had to learn how to fend for themselves and stand their ground. They were villains, after all.
So. Rampion crew is hanging out, all chill, when Thorne comes crashing in with news.
“Guys guys guys guys guys guys guys…”
Cinder just sorta screams “dammit Thorne use your words!”
Now, this reference goes way over everyone’s heads, except for Cress and Kai. Cress begins squealing, and Kai is all “the old fairy tale character?”
Now, everyone is confused AF, because they don’t get it. Cress explains haphazardly, because she researched soooo much second era stuff in her satellite she knows this. Kai fills in the blanks, because his royal education taught him everything in the universe and then some. At the end, Thorne screams “AND THEY ARE ALL YOU GUYS!!!”
Cinder breaks it with a “sorry, what?”
And then Thorne goes into this rant. How everyone is SOME fairy tale or another. “See, you’re Cinderella, but instead of a slipper you have a foot, and Kai is your Prince Charming, because he kept it like a stalker!”
Awkward AF kaider glances as they relive the awkward.
“And Wolf and Scarlet? They’re Little Red Riding Hood!”
“Excuse me did you call me little?”-Scarlet
“NONONONO don’t kill me it’s a story about a little girl who goes to find her grandma dressed in a red hood, when a big bad wolf!!” At this point Thorne is just kinda poking Wolf as he looks all confused.
“And then Winter is Snow White! She was the fairest, and an evil queen tried to kill her with an apple, and a prince woke her up with a kiss! See? THE SAME!!!”
Jacin is like considering murdering him because he swore he wouldn’t bring up kissing Winter in her broken state again but now it’s awkward.
~another awkward silence~
“And what about you and Cress?” This comes from Winter, looking curiously as Thorne begins to stumble because he needs to pretend he didn’t think this through.
Kai JUST says “Well Rapunzel, duh.”
He gets weird and vacant looks.
“Girl with REALLY long hair trapped in a tower”
Just picture them all discovering this and making fun of one another and being lil adorable trash bags. Please. I love it.
Evie watched as a tall figure rushed down
the stairs, shouting loudly in an evident worry. She assumed it was Harry, but
her vision was too blurry and all she could make out were the outlines of the
people around her.
Last thing she remembered was being locked
up in that dark cabin.
She was shopping for some fresh apples for
her mother and since the Evil Queen had to have the highest quality of apples,
Evie had to take a trip across the entire island to retrieve the red apples.
Only she didn’t realise the hour and by the time she was about to return home,
the sun already set down and darkness filled the isle.
Evie was never afraid of the darkness
before, but truth to be told she didn’t enjoy the lack of safety during the
night time. After all, she didn’t almost ruin her shoes just to have some thief
snatch her apples away from her.
However, what happened next made her wish a
thief was her only problem. When she was half-way home, somewhere around Uma’s
pirate docks, one large hand covered her mouth and another gripped her upper
arm forcefully and dragged her into alley.
For a millisecond she thought it was Harry,
since he had the tendency to surprise her like this, but the grip on her arm
was too strong and was likely to bruise and Harry never did anything to hurt
She tried to spin around and hit the
attacker with her free hand, but the person was holding her hand in an angle
that if she were to turn around she would sprain it.
Even if she were able to scream, it would
do her no good. Screams and shouts were a usual matter on the isle and no one
would pay her any attention. However, she could still see Uma’s ship and if she
could somehow free herself, she would be able to run there. As much as Uma wasn’t
fond of the blue haired princess, she would give her sanctuary in a situation
Evie took a deep breath and with all the strength
she had, she bit her attacker’s hand and kicked his shin with her heel. The
hand from her mouth was removed and the grip on her upper hand weakened, but
before Evie could make run for the docks, her attacker composed himself and
before she could do anything, she felt something sharp hit the back of her head.
“Who did this to you darling?” Harry was
now kneeling in front of her, holding her hand in his, stroking her knuckles in
a soothing fashion. He wanted nothing more than to pull her in an embrace and
never let her go again, but he was too afraid that he would hurt her even more,
given her state.
“It was Mortimer.” Gil answered for her as
he cleaned the bloodied cloth that he used for cleaning Evie’s wounds. Gil was
the person who found her in the cabin back then, but she was already in such a
damaged state that she barely recognized his voice.
“That bastard. I’ll kill him and gut him
like a-” Harry spat out angrily and was about to stand down and hunt the
bastard down, until he was stopped in mid-sentence when Evie squeezed his hand,
pleading him with her eyes to stay.
Harry realized that no matter how furious
he was right now, his princess needed him at the moment and that was more
important than revenge.
“You know what, I will tell you a tale.
When I was a young boy, I used to play with my mother’s snakes. They were so
amusing.” The ginger boy in front of her giggled maniacally as he tossed the
dagger between his hands back and forth.
Evie remembered him as Medusa’s son, but if
her memory served her correctly, she never even talked to him and now she was
in some sort of cabin at his ship, tied up in an uncomfortable chair. When she
asked the obvious, he ignored her and refused to tell her why he kidnapped her.
“You see, I used to cut them in a half or
skin them alive.” He sighed dreamily, before continuing. “But that was so much
work, like urghh. I preferred cutting out their tongues or eyes. That proved to
be equally satisfying and didn’t take as much energy.”
The ginger, Mortimer was his name, stepped
closer to her, tracing her facial features with his dagger.
“So which do you prefer? Your tongue or
Evie gave him a disgusted look and even
though every bone in her body screamed, she refused to break down in front of
“The least you can do is tell me why I am
here. Why me? I barely know your name.”
“The least you can do is tell me, blah blah
blah…” He mimicked her voice mockingly and laughed in her face. “Has it ever
occurred to you that I might have no reason? Maybe I just fancied you for a
lovely midnight torture session. I do get bored here easily.”
Evie knew that could be true, after all
this was the isle filled with villain kids and even though no one she knew was
as insane and maniacal as this guy, it wasn’t unusual for the isle people to
cause harm just on a whim. However, this wasn’t some harmless mischief or a
casual robbery. This was serious and whereas Evie herself didn’t have as
dangerous reputation as other might have, she was still known as part of Mal’s
gang. And no one would go this far with one of Mal’s friend. Definitely not
just for fun.
“Foolish people have no reason. You, on the
other hand, don’t strike me as one.” Evie had her way with words and even
though she didn’t believe she would talk her way out of this, she could at
least stall the time until she figured out a getaway plan.
“Mhm mhm. Flattery won’t get you anywhere,
dearest Evie. But you are right. There is a reason why you are here. I might as
well tell you while you’re still conscious.”
Evie gulped, trying to control her fear and
while she was utterly terrified on the inside, so far she made a good job at
“I never really belonged anywhere, but that
didn’t bother me. Until I saw that pirate chick, that Uma, recruiting members
for her ship. I decided to give it a try. I’ve always been fascinated by the
sea. But it was the lifestyle that drew me in.”
Evie frowned, trying to look confused as to
what did Uma and her ship have to do with her. As far as the world was
concerned, Evie belonged into Mal’s gang and Mal was sworn enemies with Uma.
That was the only connection Evie had to that pirate crew. Everything else was
a secret that not even Evie’s friends knew.
“They accepted me. Me, can you imagine it?
The awkward ginger who used to torture animals for a hobby. Not that they knew
that detail, of course.” Mortimer let himself have another laugh and began
pacing around the room.
“I was good. I could tell that they didn’t
trust me, but they couldn’t deny that I did every single mission perfectly.
Maybe even more than perfectly. You see, I sometimes let myself be caught up in
the moment. If you know what I mean.” He winked at her and Evie suddenly felt
an urgent need to vomit.
“Once, we went to rob old Tremaine. Now,
she’s an old cow, but she’s a stubborn old cow. I wanted to teach her a lesson
properly. But unfortunately I wasn’t alone. Hook’s offspring was with me. And
he didn’t like my ways.”
“I’ll tell you, the entire crew? Heck they
try to seem all tough and badass, but the worst things they’ve done is throw
someone over the plank. Pretty weak, if you ask me.” Evie knew that. It was
like an unspoken rule of all the villain kids. Stealing, robbing, vandalizing,
threatening, heck even occasionally beating someone up, that was normal in
their society. But no one ever went as far as murder or torture. The kids
needed to be tough to survive, hence the stealing and all that, but they weren’t
“The next day I had my things lying at the
docks. They threw me out of the ship, called me a lunatic and a psycho. That
angered me. Not what they said about me, let’s be honest here, it was true.”
Another high-pitched giggle. “But the fact that after months of loyal service,
they threw me out. I was a good asset! And I never practised my playtime on any
of the crew members. They had no reason to throw me out.”
“Except for the fact that you are a
psychopath.” Evie muttered sarcastically. “As much as your story is very
touching,” She spat out, making emphasis on the last word, “What does it have
to do with me?”
“Tsk tsk tsk. Evie, Evie, Evie.” Mortimer
shook his head at her, apparently displeased with her question. He moved over
towards a wooden table full of tools and picked a large metal object. Evie didn’t
know what it was, but she didn’t want to find out.
Seconds later, he wrapped the metal cage
around her sides, pushing it towards her in a way that she was tightly pressed
between the metal devices like a sandwich.
“You see, I couldn’t openly take revenge on
Uma, I’d have the entire pirate crew at my back. Now I couldn’t take revenge on
Harry, Gil or anyone else either, as I would be facing the same issue. So I
found myself in a dilemma. Until few days ago.” Mortimer pulled the handle on
one side of the metal cage, which made it squish Evie even more, making her
grunt in pain.
“You and the pirate aren’t as sneaky as you
thought. I had to watch you for a while, though, I had to make sure that you
weren’t just some unimportant plaything to him. After I made sure that the
pirate truly has feelings for you, I had my perfect revenge.”
“So what, you’re going to kill me?” Evie
asked, even though each one of her word was followed by a grunt as the metal
device was making it impossible for her to breath.
“I don’t know whether I’m going to kill you
or not. You think I have that much self-control? Ha! You’re cute.” He giggled
once more, before pulling the handle once more, making Evie scream in pain this
Gil placed the wet clean cloth on Evie’s
forehead, trying to lower down the temperature. He managed to bandage her torso
and her arms, but he feared the blueberry princess would need proper medicine,
“I want to sleep.” Evie mumbled and yawned,
blinking her eyes sleepily.
“I know, darling, but you can’t go to sleep
just yet.” Harry replied to her. It pained him to see her like this, but Gil
emphasised that he needs to talk to her and can’t let her fall asleep, at least
not until the fever lowers down. Harry was quite surprised at just how well Gil
handled himself around the injured princess. He made a mental note to himself
to ask Gil when he came to such extensive knowledge on treating injuries.
“I’m so sorry.” Harry whispered to her. It
was his entire fault. He was supposed to protect her and now she went through
hell, all because some psychopathic idiot wanted to pursue his revenge.
“I don’t know what I would do if I lost
you.” He admitted truthfully. He never imagined he would ever fall for someone,
save for a princess, but here she was, holding his heart in her delicate hands.
“I’m still here.” She whispered back. Each
word she said sent a wave of physical pain through her body, but she needed to
give him some sort of reassurance. He needed to see that she wasn’t angry with
him and that she was alive and still loved him with all her heart.
Ruling the queendom in the great Ever After were two queens proper; a terrifying vision in red, and a magic most vile. Every land and every story waned and withered under their tyranny. In even the farthest reaches of Legend they were feared.
Said the White Queen to the proletariat, “Fair is foul and foul is fair! All the lands are mine to acquire! Quoth the mirror upon the wall: I am the fairest of them all!”
(this is for day 4 of a group 30 day challenge. the prompt was ‘on a date’. what better date than a snuggle in the smouldering ruins of your queendom?)
Okay my thoughts on the season finale… (as posted in the ABC advisory group)
If this wasn’t Jennifer Morrison’s (as good as) Last episode I would probably be fine with it, another rinse and repeat finale with a one group of people occupied doing one thing in one place while another group is kept busy elsewhere doing something else. It was very like what we’ve seen in the season finales in recent years – very formulaic. And I guess, with so many of the cast members departing and this being touted so heavily as “the final battle” I guess I just expected more. And that’s my mistake; I own that. I’m starting to think that Once Upon a Time is not a show that should be thought about on any level. It is fast food storytelling. You enjoy it at the time but ultimately, it’s not very satisfying and if you think about it too closely you’re likely to feel regret. I think you’re supposed to enjoy the surface level of the show but not concern yourself with the depth. And this is a huge and sad realisation for someone who has watched the show from the beginning and spent the last four seasons writing about and analysing the episodes in depth – sometimes writing thousands of words about one episode. It wasn’t always like this though and it makes me sad.
My biggest problem with the episode was the disconnectedness between the two sides of the story. We see the people transported back to the Enchanted Forest do various things – there’s collapsing worlds, there is a hunt for a bean, Regina is trying to do magic for …reasons. But ultimately nothing that those stuck in the Enchanted Forest does has any purpose whatsoever – it’s mindless busywork to keep them occupied and out of the way. Why didn’t Hook use the bean? Why didn’t he throw it on the ground and create a portal and get back to Emma quickly like Snow told him to? How nice it would have been to get a pay-off on Emma’s brief flashes of memory of her wedding day, Hooks image burning in the book, with him coming through a bean portal and Emma feeling a strange stab of recognition for this man and then them Kissing to restore her memories. Then Emma and Killian would have gotten their TLK! I feel so sad that so many couples got one, some that didn’t really deserve one (Hades and Zelena, I’m looking at you!) except for Emma and her true love. They still could have had their season one inversion of Henry giving Emma a TLK to save her life after the fight with Gideon (even though I think, and I am a mother, it’s really, really weird for a child to give their parent a true love’s kiss.). It would have connected the two parts of the story beautifully and it would have given purpose to the Enchanted Forrest side of the story and just improved the whole episode overall. I can’t help but think the episode would have been more entertaining and more of a parallel to season one if the curse had kept everyone in Storybrooke and robbed them of their memories – Henry still could have been the sole believer (I guess it was the book or his author role that kept him exempt?) and given him more purpose, more people to try to get through to… And maybe Emma wouldn’t have had to do the strange and oddly fast (8hour round trip!) visit to Boston. Ultimately, I felt there was no connection between why it was so important to separate Emma from her family and the realisation that she was never alone and the battle with Gideon and the curse … and yeah.
The Black-fairy was a big anti-climax. I knew she would be. She literally functioned as a Regina-substitute and I can’t help but wonder if, as this was the ending that A&E envisioned from the start, it was supposed to be Regina in the end. It would have made a hell of a lot more sense! I really believe the show was derailed from its purpose with, not by the befriending of Regina as a tactic to defeat her … but that that tactic worked so efficiently and without question. Regina’s redemption felt like a slap-up whitewash and somewhere along the line the writers became too scared to challenge the character. She got away with everything she ever did with no consequence. It’s hardly a satisfying story. Fairy tales are about good versus evil. With good supposed to win after trial and hardship. It’s a shame that Regina was never put through the same trials and challenge that say, Rumple or Hook or even Emma and the Charmings’ were put through. Seeing the dwarves paint “Queen” on her door and bowing to her was sickening. She is not a queen, she is a usurper. At the very least she should have admitted this as part of her “redemption”. The very least. All I could think when there was the shot of her looking at the red apple at the end, was that she must be very pleased with herself. She Won. She won everything. Her evil plans and schemes paid off big time – she’s rich, powerful, she apparently “owns” a town, the people now love her, she has a son, friends and a sister and she never had to pay the price for any of the terrible things she did. It’s not logical to expect people would just ‘get over’ decades of abuse and torment. It’s not fair on the people she hurt. Not to mention that her clone also rides off happily ever after into the sunset? Of all the unnecessary inclusions in the finale the presence of Regina 2.0 was the worst. She dominated and nearly killed the show; I seriously hope that this is the last we see of her. In this new-look season seven, I really hope that they make Henry’s nemesis, whoever that may be, his nemesis. And keep it that way. Don’t make Henry befriend him (or her)! Enmity is a good thing to keep between enemies. It drives a story, it gives purpose – it gives the audience someone to root for. And as ironic as this sounds – it doesn’t divide. People may love a villain but they love them for being a villain and they love the hero for standing up to them. It makes a much better story than making your protagonist sweep the past under the carpet, and put their blinkers on about every questionable thing that their nemesis is doing. And don’t turn Henry’s archenemy into a sainted Mary-sue (or Bobby-Stu) who is annoying and sanctimonious while at the same time being self-centred and selfish and boring and rendering themselves superfluous to the point where every appearance in the story feels like a shoehorn…
The ending of the episode was nice, but a bit twee. Everyone got a happy ending. Yay. I guess. Whether they deserved it or not. Belle, why wouldn’t you have taken that newly babyfied Gideon and run for the hills? I liked that Rumple did the right thing in the end but it was too little too late for that marriage – and with Belle not coming back next season, surely a melancholy bittersweet parting of the ways would have been more appropriate for them? As it is, it feels very much like all these Happy Beginnings that have been gifted to everyone are going to be ripped out from under us with the departing characters. Its’ inevitable. I will be incredibly sad if Emma Swan is killed off to move the story forward. But I won’t be surprised. I’m not sure the writers gave us enough of a hook to pique our interest with the duplication of the original story at the end… the show felt very much done. I felt a sense of relief that it’s over. That I can finally stop thinking about and worrying about these characters. Before the finale, I was fully intending to keep watching – I like Colin O’Donoghue and the Character of Killian Jones so I am predisposed to continue…. But that ending, it made me feel a sense of ambivalence. I’m not sure I can be bothered re-investing without the guarantee of a decent return. If Emma was back, I would be back. No doubt. But with how I’m feeling at the moment, there will have to be some very interesting information released over the hiatus to get me back and they will have to tell us something, some crumbs, instead of this nonsensical evasive “wait and see” discourse.
Aria is an artist. Bethany is an artist, too. There was also a portrait of a blond in Aria’s room. Big Rhonda mentioned that a lady with a big beige purse took Bethany on outings, Ella was seen with the ‘big beige purse’ Marlene tweeted that there was a new member in the Montgomery family (A.M & B.Y) A lot of you claim that this tweet was fake but I swear to you, it’s not. I retweeted it when it was still up on Twitter. When Aria volunteered at the asylum, Eddie Lamb recognized her. He felt like they ‘MET’ before. However, Aria disagrees. The reason he felt this towards her was because she’s an identical twin to Bethany Young, who once was a patient at Radley. When they were talking, there was a pig portrait behind them. Pigtunia is very symbolic in PLL, Alison mentions that the game has a new ‘puppet master’ When they tried to distract the cops, they used a pig mask on fake A. The Montgomery family left after Alison’s disappearance, we also come to know that Bethany Young was murdered that night. It’s possible that Ella persuaded Byron to take a trip to Iceland to clear their minds and get a fresh start. Byron thought it was a good idea because he saw Alison the night she was 'murdered’ but what about Ella? Byron got pissed at Ella when she went to visit 'Charlotte’ She might have visited her to ask about Bethany Young. In Aria’s basement, there was a red coat doll with brunette hair and at that time, Red Coat was identified as a blond. There were also portraits of Aria in A’s lair. Marlene posted a picture of the liars in Jail S2 and captioned it, “A remembers this #clue” Charlotte only took over in S3. Unless, Marlene was talking about Uber A. When Aria was at Radley, the patients were painting flowers and there were sunflowers behind the teacher. There’s always a sunflower reference when it comes to Aria. I found the symbolic meaning of it online: “The sunflower is the Greek symbol of Clytie (a water nymph) who turns into a sunflower after grieving over the loss of her love (Apollo). The mythological symbolism here is that Clytie is always facing the sun, looking for Apollo’s chariot to return and she might be joined again with her love.
Bethany was furious at Jessica for having an affair with her father, Byron. Byron was seen dressed like the father of the creepy twins, Aria was also seen wearing white socks and black Lolita shoes, just like the twins. Their kitchen stove is also a match! This theory could go both ways, either Aria is Bethany’s twin or she has twin sisters, who one of them happens to be Bethany Young. In Charles’ prom, Aria was seen dressed as an evil-version of Cinderella. Cinderella has evil step-sisters who can be seen as twins. Cinderella also has an evil step-mother, if the twin story is true, Ella is considered to be evil for admitting her children into Radley at such a young age. She’s no different from Kenneth. Aria was also seen dressed as Snow White at Rosewood High’s prom, who also has an evil step-mom. Coincidence? Yeah, right! Snow White was persuaded to eat the poison apple by the Evil Queen, PLL throws in symbolic apples into the show. At the Campbell’s farm, which was A’s old lair, there was a logo with twin peacocks and a bunch of red apples around it. TWIN PEACOCKS WITH A BUNCH OF RED APPLES AROUND IT. Bethany was buried at the unbuilt gazebo, Aria was seen making a hexagon shape out of matchsticks. She was also seen 'walking after midnight’ trying to keep up with Leah at the graveyard. Leah (Luke’s cousin from 4x13) was pushed into an open-grave where Aria happened to pull her out. This could be a clue that Aria did indeed save Bethany that night but can’t remember because they were all drugged by Alison. Leah and Aria resembles the 'Aria twin’ doll. Look close. There’s also a knife stabbed in her eye, which is a connection to the twin story. In 4x01, A got younger versions of the girls to play out a scene. Mona and Aria were the ones that were pushing the girls on the roundabout. We know that Mona was controlling the girls but what’s Little Aria’s purpose? Is she controlling the girls, too? Her twin, Bethany? There are a lot of creepy Aria and Mona scenes, 'Miss Aria, You’re A Killer. Not Ezra’s Wife’ Following the twin story, was Aria ABOUT to stab her twin, Bethany? But as soon as their parents walked in, she framed Bethany with the knife. Aria is obsessed with dolls, it’s no surprise if she decides to hurt someone over it.
If those are not peacocks and are swans instead, it just makes this theory a whole lot better! Aria was seen dressed as the Black Swan in S2! Melissa was forced to dress as BS, whereas Aria CHOSE to. Her dress wasn’t pitch black, it was actually a replica of the swan on the cover page. If you turn the picture upside down, a bull is to be seen (personality disorder/twin clue) Aria was also seen wearing a lot of necklaces & shirts with the bull logo. The bull also symbolizes Satan (devil emoji) Credit to @anacristinaviegas)
Everything’s revolving around Aria and her family. Ella and Byron are getting married, if the wedding takes place in 6x19, the episode where the twin possibly makes an appearance 'Did you miss me’, it would make a lot of sense. Aria’s twin crashes the wedding. Here are some clues I found, Aria gets arrested in 6x18, although she hasn’t done anything. They bring in other suspects who resemble her. That’s a twin clue right there. Aria gets burned at a dinner party (Montgomery’s?), quite interesting because Bethany has somewhat scarring to her face. I had a theory that Bethany and Aria could possibly be twins! Aria and Byron were also the last ones to wrap up the finale 6x20! Marlene posted a picture of Aria in the finale with the caption 'MIND-BLOWING ENDING, TWISTED, EPIC’
Can you pls write some domme!Emma smut (in canon). Thank you <3
<3 anon, I hope you like this!
want, take, have
There’s an itch under her skin.
It’s familiar…an urge to escape that had sent her running from foster care and group homes…a rush from slipping something into her bag when the cashier’s back was turned and walking out without paying…an ache between her legs that wouldn’t be satisfied by her own hand or some quality time with a handheld shower head.
It needs to be scratched.
But Emma Swan is not fifteen anymore and Storybrooke is home now, a real home, with a family (a mom, a dad, a brother, everything she ever wanted) and there’s too much at stake now to pack a bag and take off in the middle of the night (even though somethings she dreams of doing just that, old habits and all that jazz). She’s got a savings account and a credit card and she can buy candy and lipstick without needing to lift it (besides, she’s sheriff now and it would be awkward as fuck to get caught shoplifting in the town’s lone drugstore) her days as a thief are behind her and she doesn’t miss it, not really.
