“Rumbelle Bonnie and Clyde” - Digital Oil Painting

“You make me want to be a better man,” said Gold. “Ooh, we can’t have that,” said Belle, wrapping her arms about his neck. “Then, you might want a better girl.” He grinned, his gold tooth flashing in the dim light. “There’s no better girl for me, and you know it.”

Emma Goes Dark in Once Upon a Time Promo Poster


“Happily ever after” has never been further out of reach. When Once Upon a Time—ABC’s fantasy series about fairy-tale characters—unveils its marketing campaign for Season 5 at Comic-Con, viewers’ worst fear will be confirmed: Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), aka the Savior, is poised to become the show’s scariest baddie yet. “As formidable as Emma was as a hero, she’s going to be exponentially more dangerous as a villain,” promises executive producer Adam Horowitz. Fellow executive producer Edward Kitsis adds with a laugh, “I hope our fanbase reacts well—it seems like a large segment is very worried!”

And with good reason. The September 27 premiere, titled “The Dark Swan,” will pick up moments after last May’s finale left off, as Emma allowed the evil spirits that were released from Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) to enter her body and transform her into the new Dark One. “The first thing Emma wants to do is get the darkness out,” Kitsis says. “But will she be able to resist taking a bite of the forbidden apple?”

Uh, that’d be a no, meaning that Emma’s nearest and dearest—including her son Henry (Jared Gilmore), true love Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and enemy-turned-ally Regina (Lana Parrilla)— will be tasked with finding the mysterious sorcerer Merlin, the only one capable of breaking the curse. Hint: The gang should set their GPS for the Camelot of Arthurian legend—and be prepared to encounter some of its famed residents along the way. (Think King Arthur, Princess Guinevere, Sir Lancelot and the Knights of the Round Table.) “We’re excited to put our twist on these classic characters,” Kitsis says. “We love the origin stories!”

CS + “To love at all is to be vulnerable"

CS Lewis, The Four Loves

Dedicated to the wonderful thesorcererslibrary

This sentence just fits them perfectly because these are two people that spent their entire life hiding how they truly felt, pretending to be tough and strong 24x7. Not letting anyone take advantage of their weakness, always playing safe.

Then when they met each other they realized each one on his/her turn that if they want to truly love they need to really expose their hearts. To be really vulnerable around one another. 

All they did for their entire life needed to be left aside in order to truly give their heart to the other person. We talked endless of times on how difficult it was for Emma, but it was hard on Hook too (he did played the tough pirate for hundreds of years after all…).

So basically they couldn’t really love without showing their vulnerable side. Definitely a wise and true sentence.

Send me a word/quote/parallel and I’ll make you a CS gifset inspired by it.

Stop it. Stop. Stop shoving Regina into literally everything. She doesn’t care about Emma. She’s not one of her ‘nearest and dearest.’ Leave Regina in Storybrooke to deal with her own shit for once. Let Emma’s storyline be centered around Emma and the people that actually love her, like her parents and son and boyfriend?

I’m so fucking tired of this shit. I’m so tired of it that I’m posting this on my own blog because no.
