Bouncer: Welcome to The Salty Splatoon, how tough are ya?

Girl Inkling: How tough am I? HOW TOUGH AM I? I once won a Tower Control match all by myself!

Bouncer: Hmm, not bad…

G. Inkling: AND I HAD A CHARGER WEAPON!!! AND MY ENTIRE TEAM DISCONNECTED 20 SECONDS INTO THE MATCH!!!

Bouncer: So–sorry to keep ya waiting!! Right this way ma’am!!

“When one of you is awake the other will be asleep…”

One of the earliest arguments for the validity of Swan Queen I found myself drawn to was the one that highlights the fact that–as @iamafanoff mentioned in an earlier post–Emma and Regina are seemingly never able to be happy and together with their presumed romantic “true loves” at the same time. Whenever one’s love life seems to be on green the others’ is falling apart; bc Beardy McOakin Pines’ wife’s been time travelled back from the past, or Emma is flinging her whole, entire life into the clutches of darkness bc, jeez, that sexy ass clock tower, w/ the thing for books and the wonderful personality…ya know? Or Ol’ Fish Breath the Wonder Pirate has uttered his final sea shanty. Oh but then lights out for Acorn Nut Drizzle, while simultaneously dragging the Salty Spitoon back up from the pits of hell-lite.

“When one of you is awake the other will be asleep…”

Snow and Charming’s happiness is literally unable to exist at the same time. That has been Emma and Regina’s story for all 4 of the evers and I’m emotional.

To the point: If one (or more) of you wonderfully talented gif makers are up for making a gif-set using a few of those examples above, framed with Regina’s quote about the curse, I’d be eternally grateful.
