jenmorrisonlive Day 101: Emma’s wedding gown! So much love and thought went into this dress. Just as #onceuponatime pulls from fairytales and literature - for the wedding, Eddy, Adam, Edwardo, and I felt it would be wonderful to pull from the real life fairytale of Grace Kelly. It is a dress that represents the elegance and simplicity of classic timeless strength mixed with the delicacy of feminity and vulnerability. It is the ultimate balance that Emma has been fighting for throughout the 6 seasons. A wholeness. A balance. Not all one thing or another - But rather, a moment that is genuinely, truly, authentically her without barriers and walls. A woman surrounded by people she loves and is loved by, willing to fight to protect them all as well as herself. The joy of a timeless balance. So honored to wear such a beautiful gown. Edwardo and his team created a piece of art once again. The perfect way to end this round of #101smiles #emmaswan #wedding #uglyducklings (x)
A/N: So, this little bit
of silliness was inspired by David’s commentary in this week’sfirst sneak
peek. I don’t disagree with him – Granny’s really isn’t the place for the CS wedding – but I thought he was a bit harsh
in his overall assessment of the place. And I thought Granny definitely wouldn’t like it – and probably
would have overheard it, with her wolf-hearing and all, and so might have tried
to exact some…revenge. So. This was born – roughly 950 words of David-centric
silly fic, with a touch of Captain Charming near the end. Also, it assumes that
a little more time elapses between the sneak peek and when the wedding will
take place than will probably happen on the show – maybe a few weeks or so. Hope you all enjoy!!
It all started so subtly that David almost didn’t notice it…at
His toast had been just a little bit darker than usual one morning when he’d stopped in for
breakfast on his way to the station, but he’d washed down the slightly burnt
aftertaste with the last of his coffee and had gone on his way with barely a
Then, the burger he’d gotten one afternoon while spending
some quality bonding time with Henry had been a lot rarer than he preferred –
actually, if he was being honest, it had been practically raw – but he’d just grimaced (after discreetly spitting the one
bite he’d taken back into his napkin) and politely asked if it could be put it
back on the grill for another couple of minutes. When the plate had been
returned to the table, his burger had been perfectly cooked and he’d gone back
to enjoying the afternoon with his grandson.
In hindsight, he supposed the salt he’d received in his
coffee instead of sugar during an all-too-rare-in-recent-history date night
with Snow – an honest mistake, the
slightly frazzled waitress had pleaded – really should have been a tip-off, but at the time he’d just been too
happy that his wife had not been in full on Mother-of-the-Bride mode to think too
closely about anything else.
“Come on, Anx” Prince chuckled, leaning against the door as he waited,
suited as a proper prince, with all his royal attire. There was a ball that
night, and he wanted company.
Of course that Anxiety could come in any way, but just telling him that the
prince’s pair always needed to wear dresses was funnier.
“Look, charming, I agreed with this stupid ball, I am not putting on a
dress just because your kingdom has dumb rules” he said, and Prince sighed
“Well then. I guess Morality would wear one. I will invite him instead.”
He said, making his way out, before Anxiety groaned.
“Ugh fine! I’m going to change” he said, and Prince smirked to himself,
before he left the room to let Anxiety change in peace.
“He’s taking too long” Prince groaned after half an hour waiting. It was
a dress, not a war. He walked to Anxiety’s room, but as he moved his hand to
knock, Anxiety opened the door and looked at him.
“Hey Princy. What do you think?”
Prince was… speechless.
He stared up and down, unbelieving of what he was seeing. Anxiety was
wearing high heels, but his legs were covered by the long, black dress that had
nothing of ‘princess’ written on it. The
body of the dress was tight in the right amount, showing off Anxiety’s waist
line but without exaggeration, and there were sleeves that didn’t cover his shoulders,
but went all the way down his arms in a very transparent black fabric. There was
also a dark blue necklace on his neck and earrings that matched.
And that was forgetting the beautiful and delicate makeup, with its
tones of black and blue but without too much color.
He was beautiful.
“I… It’s good” Prince said, smirking, ignoring his sweaty hands and fast
heartbeats and butterflies in his stomach. “Shall we go?”
“Of course” Anxiety agreed, smirking, before he linked his arms with
Prince’s and walked out of his room next to his date.
It wasn’t a date really.
But it ended up with more than a
make out section.
Here’s all of the album covers I recreated for my lil Heroes of Olympus playlist project in one post. If you click the pictures it’ll say the albums they’re a remake of. (Thalia’s is Adam & The Ants - Prince Charming since her pic couldn’t fit with the set)

Highlights from the Gil McKinney panel at Storytelling Con, Barcelona, April 22, 2017
This transcript is relatively short because he was asked, and sang a lot during his panel.
If you could be another Disney prince who would you be? “Probably Prince Charming. I was joking this morning, josh is so perfect and so great but I would have loved to have gotten to play that part. Lead of the show. He’s done a lot of episodes.”
“I read for Once Upon a Time three times. The first time was for a stable boy. The second time I read for Hook. And then they brought me back a third time and they just said it was a Prince. They didn’t say what Prince. I think the audition material was from maybe something of Cinderella’s prince. And they changed the names. I didn’t know what prince I was reading for. I heard I was auditioning for a prince on Once Upon a Time. So I went in and I read and I was lucky enough to get the part. And then I found out it was Prince Eric. A friend of mine actually texted me and said ‘Congratulations on booking Prince Eric!’ And I was like ‘Prince Eric?’ and he said ‘Go online…’ so I went to this website and they had announced it on the internet. That’s how I found out.”
“Prince Eric’s pretty cool.”
“When I was a little kid the Little Mermaid was always my favorite.”
He’s always thought of himself as an actor who could sing but is singing more and more lately. Doing conventions has encouraged him. He’s just recorded an album.
It’s been many years since he’s been in a musical. In college.
He’d like to work with Colin again, because they didn’t have scenes but he was so nice and welcoming. The whole cast was very friendly but Colin in particular. He’d also love to work with Jared or Jensen from Supernatural again.
He has not seen Hamilton.
He referenced a Progressive Insurance commercial with Flo where she rescues him from the side of the road. It was modeled after the Notebook.
