Oh good lord, the stupid it hurts….
Emma was closed off and VERRRRYYYYYY non-physical in season one and two, because SOMEONE had so utterly fucked her over she was left with nine billion trust issues and refused to let anyone in. And, on rare occasions that she did, she was fucked (e.g. Graham)—I mean, seriously, it isn’t that hard to understand!
And yes, she was more open during the Epic Twu Booty
Call—the WHOLE FUCKING MESSAGE/CONCEPT WAS THAT SHE WAS STILL, DESPITE
THE SHITTY ABANDONMENT CHILDHOOD SHE ENDURED BECAUSE OF SCALY AND
QUEEN-QUEEN, A FUNDAMENTALLY OPTIMISTIC TEEN, EAGER FOR AFFECTION!!!!
However, what with being sexually abused without benefit of a condom,
framed, betrayed and abandoned—and giving birth to a baby at seventeen
while chained to a bed, that all changed and she retreated far behind
and even when she was with that dude zelena turned into a flying monkey
she had no problem kissing in him public (though it was just a kiss on
the cheek hello)
Similarly, yes, she was willing to let him in somewhat because she was fucking memory wiped, you pea brain and having NOT given Henry up for adoption, she spent the next years with her beloved son, happy and with family. That’s the whole freaking point, once again!!!
even (though i hate to admit it) early c/s the pecks on the cheeks felt in-character with who emma was as far as how much affection she felt comfortable giving in public.
Funny, I seem to recall BagelSwanners bitching endlessly about how long and tacky early CS kisses were. We didn’t have a “peck on the cheek” (and it was done as a cute, sort of ironic thing) until almost mid-season 4. There were no shortage of hella hot lip locks before that…..
Also, of course, Gracie knows sooooo much better what Emma does and doesn’t do.
this version of e/mma,
however, is extremely off putting with the way she drapes herself over
h/ook to the point she looks like a dead-eyed ragdoll h/ook needs to
I don’t think she looks “dead-eyed” in the least, kinda lust-eyed, sure….but Emma doesn’t look dead at all. And gee, imagine that, an engaged woman who had been separated from and briefly thought all was over with her fiance is into tapping that as much as possible….
Naturally, if they weren’t all kissy-faced, that would CLEARLY show that they don’t love each other at all. Meanwhile, I’m just laughing at the butthurt!
