tag!once upon a time

onepunchblush  asked:

Ummm do u guys have a tag for your text posts?? I saw like two of them once upon a time but now I can't find them :(

Not a specific tag but we should do that that’s smart. They’re all somewhere on here so if yo I type in wolfstar when searching on our blog they should come up.

  • them: omg why do u obsess over those characters so much
  • me: i indulge myself in the lives of fictional people to avoid the realization that my own life is, in fact, boring and meaningless
  • them:
  • me:
  • them:
  • me: i mean... guess i'm just a nerd hah a :)
OUAT Super Secret Spoiler Spec **UPDATED**

I’ve been getting a lot anonymous asks talking about the secret spoiler that was seen on the set tour and have therefore compiled a lot of info on what exactly the spoiler might be.  DISCLAIMER: all this info is coming from anonymous sources who may or may not actually know anything about the set.  Therefore, I am claiming all of this as total speculation until a valid source can provide confirmation.  So, here’s a list of all the info I’ve gotten.

  • The spoiler “would be hard to keep in [Captain Swan’s] house.”
  • Someone at the convention apparently said that the spoiler had something to do with CS (but backpedaled when they realized that they’d said too much).
  • I got two very vague anons following an anon that wished people would just tell us the spoiler.  They said the following: “It has to do with a boy named Jack *whistles*” and “A tale of a boy named Jack and a….”  I guessed that what they’re referring to is the beanstalk, but got no further confirmation.
  • The beanstalk would align with whatever the spoiler is being hard to keep in the CS house, and it would also be related to CS.
  • There was apparently a tweet where someone said the secret spoiler was in a green screen room, which they would need in order to recreate the beanstalk set.
  • I literally just got the same anon who hinted that it was the beanstalk confirming that the spoiler is in fact the beanstalk.  
  • There is now a picture of what looks like the bottom of a beanstalk in an outdoor set in Burnaby Central Park (x)

Obviously there is no way for me to 100% confirm any of this, but I thought I would organize all the info I’ve collected, whether it’s true or not, so that you all can be the judge.  If you want to see any of the asks I’ve gotten in relation to any of these pieces of info, you can either message me or find them at mrs-emma-swan-jones.tumblr.com/tagged/anon.

Important note to fandoms

I’ve recently seen a lot of dumpster fires going around in a few fandoms I am in, mainly related to shipping. Star Wars and Once are the worst offenders right now. I wanted to write a post about my feelings on harmful Antis (People who actively attack others in a fandom who do not ship what they ship) and this is what I have to say to them:

Don’t ever think yourself so important that you alone have to protect people from their own imaginations. That is arrogance at it’s best, and dangerous at it’s worst. You do not own art, it’s interpretation, or value to other people. YOU DO NOT GET TO DECIDE WHAT IS OR IS NOT ‘RIGHT’ FOR ANOTHER PERSON. ESPECIALLY PEOPLE YOU HAVE NEVER MET!

If you are triggered by certain interpretations of art, you need to work to create a safe space, NOT the other people in a fandom. It is up to you, to take considerations to your mental and emotional health, not other fans.


If you are triggered by even the mention of something, then you have a serious condition and need to seek professional assistance because actively coming into a public space where your triggers are, is unhealthy as fuck behavior.

Now, don’t get me wrong. Everyone has a right to their opinion. You can believe someone’s ship or interpretation of a thing is fucked up, and have discussions but you do not own the right to say they cannot interpret a thing that way. You do not own fandom. No one does. Hell, as a writer I don’t get any say in how my work is seen. That is completely out of my hands. As it should be! My intention to the work can be considered by those who wish to consider it but it is not my job, even as the creator and author of the work, to determine how it is seen. It is up to the viewer and them alone because art is a personal experience. Every person has their own life, with wildly different experiences, and telling someone their interpretation of a piece of art is wrong, is telling that person their experiences are wrong.

Sure, they could be factually incorrect. Like if someone looked at a painting of a dog and said “That’s a duck”, that is not interpretation. Now, someone looking at the painting and believing the dog looks sad, or happy, is an interpretation. Or thinking the painting of a lone dog is a commentary on how loyalty is rewarded with loneliness, and despair, is an interpretation.

Just wanted to be clear before all of you bust into my post like the koolaid man with a clever retort that any comment on art is correct. Y'all are grown enough to know what I’m talking about.

TL:DR Mind your own fucking business.

Hey guys!

We’d like to make a couple of announcements regarding the use of tags in the group. Or rather… HERE IS A COOL NEW TAG and HERE IS AN OLD TAG WE’RE TRYING TO BRING BACK!

  • Remember once upon a time when we had that cool post you could like and then anyone in the group could find you from it? Yeah, well Tumblr really had some yucks at our expense when they changed how likes functioned. But now as a very belated alternative, we’d like to introduce the ‘#ca follow’ tag! Simply post in it on your account with your character’s name and series along with anything you’d like people to know about them and watch the follows roll in! We’d like to thank Cai for the idea!
  • Feeling like you don’t know other people in the group? Unsure if you have any common interests with other members? Well welcome to the glorious return of the ‘#ca mun intro’ tag! Take a moment to post a short intro about yourself in there. A little background information here, a sprinkle of your interests there. Or whatever you feel comfortable with! We’re a community first and foremost, and it can be tricky at times to become familiar with others. So we hope you guys can make the most of this tag once more!

Have a good night!

The Archive Project - Complete

Editor’s Note:   Six months ago I set out to make this blog both a news blog and a fandom resource by putting all the old press, pictures, and videos into an easily searchable and navigable form.  The last marketing image posted signifies the end of the bulk of that project.  I’m sure I’ve missed some old article or picture and if I have please feel free to send me a source link so I can add it but for now the posting of old material is largely done.

So how do I use this?

Well first of all you can navigate by the search box on the blog and the blogs tags.  I’ve tried to tag everything as consistently and intuitively as possible.  I wouldn’t recommend trying to navigate by the character name tags for the main cast… “emma swan” for example would give you almost 200 pages of results.  But say “the blue fairy” or “princess abigail” are much more manageable.

For this reason there are sub tags.  You can find the interviews of a particular actor by searching their name + interview (for example “robert carlyle interview”) and it will give you both video and text interviews.  Similarly name + convention panel (i.e. “lana parrilla convention panel”) will give you just videos of the actor at conventions.  The writers are not split up so you can find A&E plus Jane all under “writer interview”.

Social media posts are just broken down by cast, writer, and crew, so “cast instagram” will give you actor instagram posts while “writer twitter” will give you a member of the writing staff (mostly Adam Horowitz or Jane Espenson, and Brigitte Hales).  You can also find all the social media for a given actor, crew, or writer by searching by their name + social media (i.e. “rebecca mader social media”) which would include all their twitter, instagram, facebook, snapchat and tumblr posts.

Pictures, both in and out of character are tagged by name + picture (i.e. “ginnifer goodwin picture”).  Please note that red carpet events only go as far back as the beginning of Once Upon a Time so you wont find pre-once material.  For reasons of consistency set spotter pictures are NOT included in the actor picture tags in case someone wishes not to see those spoilers.

Other potentially useful tags:  the casts dogs are tagged (i.e. ”lola”, “bella”, “ava”, “buckley”), as are the cars by character name plus the type of car (”emma volkswagen beetle” “regina mercedes benz”, “gold cadillac”) and if you are looking for images of Storybrooke’s signs and shops search by “storybrooke signage” for those of you interested in fan fic reference.  Hook’s ship can be found under two tags “the jolly roger” for the fictional vessel and “the lady washington” for the real vessel that plays her.  Both “the dark swan” and season 6′s split “the evil queen” have their own tags just for those breakout personas of Emma Swan and Regina Mills.

Filming notices for shooting are under “filming notice” and all set reports and the pictures from them are tagged “set report”.  The regular journalists that cover the show are tagged by their name (i.e. “natalie abrams”, “leanne aguilera”)

And of course you can search by episode name (i.e. “3.11 going home”).  Once Upon a Time in Wonderland episodes are tagged with a w in front of the title (i.e. “w1.03 forget me not”) and all material from that series is tagged “ouatiw”.

Is there another way to search this material?

Yes, I’m glad you asked.  There are also a list of what those in the historical archive world call “finding aids” that is posts that list everything for a given episode or convention or season.  Because tumblr will only let you put so many links in a given post they’ve had to be broken up in parts.  You can find them all below.  Season 6 is listed with most recent material first.  The most recent season finding aids are linked in the side bar while all of them are linked at the bottom of each finding aid.

Season 1: General Index Post - 1A Episode Index Post - 1B Episode Index Post
Season 2: General Index Post - 2A Episode Index Post - 2B Episode Index Post

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland

But what if I just want to know what spoilers are happening?

Why you can look at our spoiler summary page!  It is also listed with most recent material first.  Because it’s a summary of many many different and often conflicting sources it is the only page on this site you’ll find with no source links.


Once Upon a Time as a subversive take on fairy tales 

Lana Parrila as Regina Mills/The Evil Queen 

I was always the Queen. It was you who added Evil to my name.


internet best friend for hire pls !!

I just need an internet friend who I can Skype looking really bad, barely talk, sit on my phone, and make random ugly faces at. Also, lets me send them randomly bad selfies on any social media. Does not ignore or get bored of me. Lets me fangirl when needed. Is not an ashton or Louis girl because then well have a problem. Actually cares about me. Does not just suddenly stop talking to me. Randomly tag each other in posts. We make a joint accounts, maybe. And just end up ruling the world together pls.
