HAPPY RUMBELLE SECRET SANTA @sydnam!! Her prompt was “Why is it so hard?” and I couldn’t help but think back to early Season 2 when Belle had to learn about the World Without Magic and all of its curious technology. I imagine she learned about some things the hard way. XD
It’s extremely important for me to note that I did NOT write that letter from Rumplestiltskin. It’s an Untold Story tidbit from a OUAT Facebook game. I myself hadn’t played the game but I came across the letter from this tumblr post and it was my inspiration for this comic (along with sydnam’s prompt).
Originally, I wanted to have Belle toggle the light on and off a few more times in the lamp panel, but photoshop said that the file was too big when I tried it. Sadly, I don’t really have anything else for animating. :/
(I have no idea how long it takes to microwave tea; I don’t think I’ve ever used a microwave to reheat my tea)
