Quote- “With those benefits and features, no wonder Kyouko couldn’t just make one for Ren’s birthday. And it’s a Japanese brand, so it’s definitely available for her to special-order. And then there’s the roses bit, linking the pillow to the Queen of Roses and the Princess Rosa and the rose glass! And "everlasting and eternal love”? Kuon = eternal
EDIT: I was just looking at the flowers in the last page (of the omake)—for the nth time—and the background ribbons brought to mind “the red thread of fate,” so I decided to look up the flowers to see what meanings they might have in the flower language of Japan.
Calla lily: superb beauty | purity | a magnificent beauty | a maiden’s grace | a dreamlike beauty | (colored) enthusiasm/passion/zeal
Boston ivy: sincere/honest/faithful | marriage | industry/diligence
Euryops daisy: a perfect/complete connection/relationship | bright/cheerful love | matrimonial happiness"
Rumbelle: After December’s heartbreaking Winter finale, many Rumbelle fans are fearing that the end is near for this beauty and the beast duo — but we’re pleased to announce that’s not the case. Horowtiz revealed, “What I’ll say about this, in all seriousness for the Rumbelle fans, is that definitely Rumple (Robert Carlyle) and Belle (Emilie de Ravin) are not over.” (And we’re pretty sure the entire Rumbelle fandom is now doing a happy dance.)
Kitsis continued, “It’s a complicated [relationship] and I know that we’re in the middle of the book, and for us we are telling a bigger story. What we loved [in the winter finale] was seeing Belle’s strength. And we set up Rumple’s weakness.”
Although Rumple and Belle will be spending some time apart, Horowitz stressed that fans should focus on the bigger picture. “We exited the show at the mid-season finale on what you might characterize, based on my Twitter feed, as a dark chapter for the Rumbelle fans — but it’s just one chapter,” he said. “We’re telling a larger story and there are more chapters to come.”
When we re-connect with Emma (Jennifer Morrison), Regina (Lana Parilla) and the rest of Storybrooke’s finest, six weeks will have passed since the Spell of Shattered sight cursed the town. So of course, that means it’s time for the next wave of evil to attack. (Our poor characters never seem to catch a break!)
Finally an article not focused on love interests! And it looks like Lana will have a lot of screentime, YAY!
