t. mills all i wanna do

Ruby: Emma, you’re going to have to stop screwing around if you wanna be Regina’s girlfriend.

Emma: “Girlfriend”? I don’t want to be Regina’s girlfriend.

Ruby: Well, what do you want, then?

Emma: I don’t know. I just want to be with her. All the time. I want to hear about her day and tell her about mine. I want to hold her hand and smell her hair. But I don’t want to be her stupid girlfriend!

When I saw Danny's thing about 'pushing you away and pulling you in again' it just annoyed me beyond belief but it's not his fault obvs. Seriously there are more interesting things to do than constantly breaking something down to build it up again. There's gonna come a point where you've pushed your audience too far and they don't wanna be pulled in again and I'm getting to that point. It all just feels like crap right now, them moving into the mill in 'spring', their future, crap.

I agree. I mean, I understand his comment if it was about a couple who’d been together for years and storylines were getting a little dry. Then I could kinda understand the sense of “oh, this couple used to be super popular and people were obsessed with them but over the years things have gotten a little quiet, maybe we could make them drift apart for a while to pull people back in again”. I mean, we kinda saw that with Jimmy and Nicola, when it seemed like they were going to split after that Dan stuff (which I actually think was quite well done?).

But Robron have never really had much of a chance to….just be. And people were more invested in them than ever; the hype around the wedding was insane and we already had them on the brink of a split in January when Aaron attacked Kasim in the first place. 

Which begs the question; why would we need to be pulled in again when we were already as “in” as we could possibly be?! 

Let’s look at it as a scale from 0-10, with 0/10 being the lowest you care/ship/root for a couple, and 10 being like….full on obsessed, hardcore shippers. We were all at a 9-10/10 since like…..well, a long time. But let’s say SSW was when we truly hit that top spot, in terms of what we wanted and what we were getting on screen. Your ship getting engaged after heartfelt conversations about love and feelings and backstories is about as good as it can get.

And that high was maintained for a while, I mean it dipped in November but it soared back up after Queen Maxine’s brilliant episode at the end of the month.

And there may have been some tiny wobbles here and there, but coming into 2017 we were still on a high, we were positive and excited and we knew the wedding was coming.

To take us from 10/10 to like….maybe a 5/10 at best lmao, in a few weeks, is awful. It should be a slow and steady decline over years and years, which is…normal! I mean you can’t be 100% invested 100% of the time. The honeymoon period ends and things slip a little. 

We hadn’t “dried up”. We hadn’t lost love or interest, not even a little bit. As heartbroken as we were about Aaron being sent to prison, I think for the most part we were positive about it; I mean their goodbye scene was iconic, it was stunning, it’s one of my fave ever Robron scenes! It was heartbreaking in a good way.

You should only worry about pulling people back in when interest has slipped to like….a 4/10. And that could only really come after maybe a couple of years of uninteresting storylines.

But with Robron, and with Aaron and Robert as individuals, they had the potential to keep interest strong FOR YEARS. I mean the potential with these characters should be a producers wet dream, but instead it’s like “LET’S THROW LITERALLY EVERYTHING WE CAN AT THEM IN THE SPACE OF A FEW WEEKS! MARRIAGE, SEPARATION, PRISON, HOMOPHOBIA, DISGUSTING REFERENCES TO THE PAST, PHYSICAL AND MENTAL ABUSE, THE PAIN OF SEPARATION, DRUGS!!!! CHEATING!!!! LIES!!!!! DECIET!!!! KEEPING SECRETS!!!!!1!!!” and hell, if we carry on at this rate we’ll be looking at PREGNANCY! MORE LIES!!!! DECIET!!!11!!! BREAK UP!!!!!

and like JFC we were still shipping them and our enthusiasm was at a solid 10?!?!? this is not how it works??!!?? you only need to pull people in when they stop caring as much so ??????????? you shouldn’t ever have to push people away; pulling back in should only come when people stop caring as much in the first place and when they have slipped away naturally. You shouldn’t have to alienate them!! That’s….that’s not how these storylines should work?!?!

You can’t literally crap all over a high and then wipe the shit off and expect the high to still be shiny again?! It’ll still have little stains and stink of poo?!?

Wait until the “high” becomes a “low” and then maybe crap all over it and then start all over again, creating a brand new high that is shiny and CLEAN and not just all covered in crap and just….I don’t even know what I’m saying, but it makes sense in my head. I have no idea if this makes sense to anyone else but I’m just going with it.

Basically, in a nutshell, Emmerdale have fucked up and they went from apparently understand exactly what the fans wanted, giving it to us (for the most part, anyway), to not knowing us at all??? Did they somehow think this was what we wanted?!?!?!?!?!?

It’s a mess and I hate it lmao

  • Reid: How about 10 pairs of shoes? I mean that has to be enough, right? 10?
  • JJ: Arrgghhh, Spence. It’s different with the ladies. We need them to match our belts, our handbags, our skirts and fashions change with the seasons.
  • Garcia: Yes. Boys are so boring. Pants, shoes, out the door.
  • Prentiss: Although it’s not like men don’t have their things. I dated a golfer once, he had 12 putters in his closet. But this conversation is reminding me I need new boots.
  • Garcia: [gasps] Oh, they’re having a sale at Dei Mille's on those tall kitty heels. You like those. Do you wanna go?
  • Prentiss: Yeah
  • Morgan: [slings an arm around Reid] You getting all these, kid?
  • Reid: No

Regina: “And for the love of everything, Miss Swan; if you do not remove your foot from my wall, I will be forced to remove it from your body.”

Emma: “Yeah, well, shit happens… and really, you’re going with ‘Miss Swan’ again? I thought we were past all that crap.


Regina: “Miss Swan—”

Emma: “Don’t fucking 'Miss Swan’ me. I have a first name and it pisses me off when you revert back to all that crap just because you’re angry. You wanna push me away? Fine. But do it as my girlfriend, and not as the stupid 'all-powerful, bow down to my self-proclaimed greatness’ Mayor bullshit.”


Regina: “Besides, if you knew anything about manners, Miss Swan, you’d know it was polite. You cooked, after all, and I suppose you should be rewarded for not burning the ham. It was still a little dry of course, but I was still quite impressed with the effort.”

Emma: “Look, insult my cooking, my lack of appliances all you want, okay?”

Regina: “I’m sensing there’s a 'but’ coming; do you plan to finish your sentence?”

Emma: “But don’t fucking call me 'Miss Swan’ alright? I hate it when you do that. It… it makes everything feel like, I don’t know, the beginning. So just don’t, okay? Call it a Christmas gift to me, or a peace offering; whatever. Just stop saying it.”


Regina: “Ms. Swan I am trying here!

Emma: “EMMA! Emma! My fucking name is Emma, Regina! You had your tongue in my mouth last night and your hands all over me. You do not get to use me to sate some odd fascination you have for law enforcement officials, talk to me as if I’m a whore the next morning, give me some crappy apology for it and still create this verbal barrier between us by not saying my name!”


Don’t mind me, I’ll just be sipping my tea.
