rumbelle scene

I still can’t believe that next episode is coming.  This is the episode I have waited for ever since 6B began.  Everything that is happening in this episode is something I’m hugely interested in.

Rumbelle scenes that look amazing,  their scenes with Gideon which look very emotional.


I’ve also been dying to know the backstory of The Black Fairy.  I’ve really been loving her and this is the part of the story I’ve been the most curious about, why she gave Rumple up.  Also Malcolm will be back for this ep.  I thought he would be but it makes me even more excited because I want the back story on how he and BlF got together. They may not go into great detail about it but we should know a little bit about that.  Plus they can connect the events of Rumple being given up by BlF to where we know he was given to his father.  I like when things connect like that.

Also, despite  the prophecy stuff going on from the press release, I still think Blue had some sort of negative role in all this somehow.  I haven’t killed my belief of her acting poorly in this.


I am so hyped for this episode.

There are so many things I love about Skin Deep and Rumbelle.

But one of my absolute favourite twists on OUAT is that their Beauty and the Beast story starts with ending a war. I… can’t really explain why, but the idea that Beauty in this story is not simply making a deal with the Beast to save her father (or -in some versions-  is basically being sold by her father who already made the deal with the Beast so he would let him go home), this Beauty is a peacemaker. OUAT’s Belle is a nobelwoman in a town under siege. A nobelwoman in a war council room, who is kind and gentle but at the same time has this incredible strength to her. She is someone who is not just capable of finding solutions that others wouldn’t have thought of (in this case summoning the Dark One) she is also the person who is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to save her people. The stakes are much higher than in any other BatB adaptation I know and that just gives this really interesting vibe to that very first scene. 

But it’s not just that it made (at least to me) Belle someone who is instantly a fascinating character. I also love how the Ogre Wars are something that played an extremely important role in both Rumple’s and Belle’s lives. 

I mean, here we have these two people who couldn’t come from more different backgrounds, born 300 years apart… and yet… war brings them together, in a way. The same kind of war, that so long ago ruined Rumplestiltskin’s life and ultimately made him who he is (after all if there were no Ogre Wars, he wouldn’t have become the Dark One). 

But it’s also interesting what kind of role they played in the Ogre Wars. Rumple was a soldier, who suffered because the nobels who ruled that territory (probably) couldn’t care less for their subjects. Rumple in that situation didn’t have any power or privilege. 300 years later he is the one with all the power, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that he finds himself fascinated by- and later falls for this young noblewoman, who is willing to give up all her privilege and her freedom to save her own subjects. Belle becomes what Rumplestiltskin once was (a peasant/servant, someone whose life is basically in the hands of their master(s)) -what fate he later escaped from!- willingly, so she can save people like Spinner Rumple and Bae. And I don’t think that’s something Rumplestiltskin saw many times in his long life. 

There are many important things about Rumbelle, and the Ogre Wars being a shared experience (even if from totally different POV’s - but imo, that’s what makes it interesting) is probably not one of the most important ones. But damn, it’s fascinating.


Finally finished! XD A set of Rumples that I started weeks ago to go with my Belles! These were super fun to draw and I love how they came out! 

My personal favorite is little Spinner!Rum but I still can’t decide if I love or hate his crazy disco shirt in the fourth one! (ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧ Enjoy!

OUaT - Thoughts on Proposals & Weddings

All hiatus long I’ve been thinking about the Captain Swan proposal spoiler. When I first started thinking about a CS proposal and wedding, I was wondering if anything could be extrapolated from the Snowing and Rumbelle proposal scenes to give a clue as to how a CS proposal might go down. It seemed a natural progression to also look at the Snowing and Rumbelle wedding scenes to see if anything could be taken from those scenes as well to predict what could happen in a Captain Swan wedding.  Now that we have a hint that that a CS wedding could happen this season as well, I decided to put everything down in one post and get it out there before it’s too late.

Two caveats before I start rambling on – First, Emma is A&E’s original princess, OUaT is her origin story and her journey to finding her happy ending by finding her family, her home, and her TL.  Because of that, I think it would make sense for Emma’s engagement and wedding to break the mold, if there is one, and have each of those occasions be something completely unique to her and Killian instead of a mirror or parallel the one that have come before. [Not that I’m letting that stop me from making this post!]  

Second, I’m using Snowing’s first wedding for the basis of this comparison/analysis because it is the one we were able to view in its entirety, and the more spiritual union versus the second, interrupted wedding, which seemed likely to have been performed more for the public.

Ok, now on with, well, with whatever this is…

Summary of Analysis Applied to Emma & Killian:

  1. The location of the proposal, whether the proposal itself is spontaneous or planned, should be some place that is symbolic of Emma and Killian’s power as a couple.  
  2. The “ring” (i.e., the item exchanged at the moment of the proposal), I think, will be something that holds meaning to Killian, and something Emma already knows about and how much it means to him.  
  3. The location of the wedding, again, whether the event is spontaneous or planned, should be somewhere that is symbolic of hope and restoration to both Emma and Killian.  
  4. Finally, the person performing the ceremony should be someone whose persona represents the core value of Emma and Killian as a couple.

Thoughts on Rumbelle in Mother's Little Helper

No, they didn’t have a lot of screen time, but the Rumbelle scenes tonight were powerful. Belle and Rumple are a team. An anxious, beautiful parenting team. A few key moments:
1. When Rumple advanced on Emma, Belle took a step toward her husband.
2. When Emma and Snow said there was no hope for Gideon and Belle despaired that they’d lost him already, Rumple told Belle she was wrong “they only see the world through black and white” and she listened.
3. Belle is turning to Rumple over and over for support, trusting him to make the right choices–doing Gideon’s dark deeds for him, saving Emma’s life–Rumple is stepping up and being strong for his family. Instead of taking drastic actions driven by emotion, he’s being reasonable and measured.
4. The back rub! The handholding!
5. Did I mention there was a back rub and handholding?

I’m proud of Belle and Rumple. My babies are acting like responsible adults.

So, it’s raining outside and I have work to do (has been working all night in fact, and I still haven’t finished editing this text I have to polish up a little bit before it can go to the press… 30 more pages to go and I’m ready to just throw my laptop out the window) but I’m also tired and… did I mention it’s raining? So I allowed myself to have a little break…

… and since it’s raining… I decided to read a little bit of @suchadearie‘s Shadow Manor (I don’t know why, rain always puts me in the mood to read that fic). 

And, um… all I want to say is…

“(…)His voice betrayed his growing impatience, and she licked her lips as if they had suddenly gone dry. He knew all the signs of fear, and he reacted on a primal level to it, closing the gap between them with a swift step, wanting to intimidate her and pressing her into submission. But instead of retreating, she straightened her back and squared her jaws, meeting his eyes unblinking.”

reading that scene, all I can think of is this:

Shadow Manor aesthetic! 

“And I expect you to be civil and not bully me into spending time with you when I don’t want to. And right now, I am not hungry.” / “Threats won’t make me love you again, Rumple.” 

I. Am. Dead.
