well the drawing is by rumple

The filename for this drawing is prettybird.psd because I’m a trainwreck.

[Caption: A realistic digital painting of Castiel from Supernatural. Portrait is from the waist up and in full profile. Castiel is wearing a rumpled white shirt with the sleeves rolled up and a striped tie. He has two enormous blue wings that lay folded at his back. He is gazing to the right with a thoughtful expression. The background is dark brown; dramatic key lighting highlights his profile as well as the wings.]

Scenario (warning: I don’t write well, but hopefully it doesn’t detract from the drawing):

When the elevator doors opened, Tony released a heavy sigh into the empty penthouse, an invisible weight melting off his shoulders. Shuffling across the room, he loosened his tie and tossed his rumpled suit jacket onto the couch. Making a beeline for the stocked bar, he grabbed his favorite scotch to pour himself a hearty glass, then took a long sip from the crystal tumbler. Tony could taste the burn of liquid amber and feel the heat slowly seep into his core, curling contentedly in his chest like a pleased cat. It soothed his weary heart, allowing the rest of the tension to bleed away.

Unfortunately, the relief was short-lived.

The elevator doors whispered open, admitting Steve, who looked absolutely disgruntled by the couch with his jaw clenched and his stance rigid with impending battle. Tony inwardly cringed, all the lost tension suddenly found, already feeling (more) exhausted by the mere thought of a confrontation with Steve. He already had a trying day at Stark Industries; how unfair was this? Outwardly, Tony smiled bright and placating in an attempt to offset some of the anger radiating off of Steve.

Well, the sleepover fic grew legs 

When Foggy’s jaw shuts with an audible click, Matt realizes what this might look like. The four of them barefoot and sleep-rumpled, Matt and Danny half-naked.

“Oh my god,” Foggy says faintly.

“No!” Matt yells, then winces. “These are my friends. We work together.”

“Right,” Foggy draws out the word. “And what kind of law do you three practice?” 

“Street law,” Luke rumbles. Matt pinches the bridge of his nose. “Now why don’t you tell us what you want?” 

“You have a squad?” Foggy says, hands opening disbelievingly. “You have a squad. You have a squad?”

“We’re the Defenders,” Danny says haughtily, throwing a supportive arm over Matt’s shoulders.

“Oh Jesus Christ, you named your squad.” Foggy moans. Matt can’t disagree.

title: the devil’s in the details (1/1)

rating: t

a/n: for someone promoted ‘as the biggest bad to ever bad’, she was an even worse villain than captain hook and his many foiled plots - and thats saying something. so, here’s an attempt at fixing her curse deployment. bonus: it gives CS honeymoon time! (cs after the cut, with a dash of rb+bby gideon)


Fiona has always considered herself a visionary, a go-getter, a creative mastermind. When she developed The Dark Curse, she tested it with a multitude of woodland creatures and unfortunate peasants (though, given the wonders The Land Without Magic has managed to create, hot water from pipes, for example, she’s certain the peasants are more fortunate than not). 

What she may have slightly miscalculated, however, is the details. Not that she’d ever admit it, but if there was one thing Regina had gotten right, it was the incredibly mundane details of a town. And a good thing too - if she hadn’t checked the key profiles of the people she intended to curse, she might have never known Henry was born in this land, which means had she cast her curse blindly, Henry would have been untouched by it completely, which could have been disastrous.

Was drawing for the Bendy/Goop!Rumple Rumbelle AU and everything got angsty-well at least from Goop!Rumple’s perspective. Hard to feel like you belong somewhere when you don’t even have your own body and that your just a pest to your host and the woman he likes… That you’ve come to like too. The odd love triangle doesn’t last long-alas Rumple doesn’t know that.

6.21/22 The Final Battle

Well, here we are. I can’t title this “the final write-up” because I still have to go back and finish six episodes in S2, but we’re certainly getting close.

My feelings about this show are large and complicated. My feelings about this finale are of overwhelming disappointment. Read on for large quantities of salt, like we’re talking “Visitors Guide to Hallstatt” here, maybe put on a helmet.

Fic: New Nighttime Routines

Rating: Explicit
Summary: Rumple is a bit of an anxious mess the first night that he spends with Belle in Storybrooke. I decided to go for the more realistic approach so there’s some sort of unsexy and awkward moments ahead.

[read it on Ao3]

Stop being ridiculous. Rumple was perched on the edge of his – their – bed, in a blue cotton top and pyjama trousers, his heart pounding and his mouth dry. He was trying to regulate his breathing, telling himself to get a grip and stop acting so pathetic.

Don’t Forget Me Masterlist


Your gaze wondered out of the car and to the woods, the trees becoming a blur, distracting you from the others in the car. Your mother frowned as you perked up while the car rushed past the abandoned light blue Jeep.

It had been at the edge of the woods since Lydia was younger, the trees and vines nearly claimed it, but you saw it every time. You’d demand to pull over and have a look at it on the way home but your Mom was always too busy helping Malia or Scott to stop.

 

“Hey, behave… no talking back to Liam, he’s your coach at school not your uncle.” Lydia warned as she kissed your head and let you climb out of the car.

 

“Yeah, yeah.” You sighed.

Hey Sarah! I was wondering what you think the MBTI personality types are for the main Once Upon a Time characters! In addition, if you are comfortable sharing, what's your type? Also, I apologize for asking you this question as I believe you may have shared what type you are in a previous post; however, I was unable to find it when I searched. Thanks!

sure! I’m an INFP / “the mediator” and i absolutely think it’s 100% accurate. 

this website has the best MBTI assessments and explanations, so i highly recommend taking the test and seeing what you get! it’s also where i’ll pull my summaries in lieu of explanations. 

emma: INFJ / “the advocate”

The INFJ personality type is very rare, making up less than one percent of the population, but they nonetheless leave their mark on the world. As Diplomats, they have an inborn sense of idealism and morality, but what sets them apart is the accompanying Judging (J) trait – INFJs are not idle dreamers, but people capable of taking concrete steps to realize their goals and make a lasting positive impact.

killian: ESTP / “the entrepreneur” 

ESTPs are the likeliest personality type to make a lifestyle of risky behavior. They live in the moment and dive into the action – they are the eye of the storm. People with the ESTP personality type enjoy drama, passion, and pleasure, not for emotional thrills, but because it’s so stimulating to their logical minds. They are forced to make critical decisions based on factual, immediate reality in a process of rapid-fire rational stimulus response.

snow: ENFJ / “the protagonist” 

People are drawn to strong personalities, and ENFJs radiate authenticity, concern and altruism, unafraid to stand up and speak when they feel something needs to be said. They find it natural and easy to communicate with others, especially in person, and their Intuitive (N) trait helps people with the ENFJ personality type to reach every mind, be it through facts and logic or raw emotion. ENFJs easily see people’s motivations and seemingly disconnected events, and are able to bring these ideas together and communicate them as a common goal with an eloquence that is nothing short of mesmerizing.

charming: ISFJ / “the defender”

The ISFJ personality type is quite unique, as many of their qualities defy the definition of their individual traits. Though possessing the Feeling (F) trait, ISFJs have excellent analytical abilities; though Introverted (I), they have well-developed people skills and robust social relationships; and though they are a Judging (J) type, ISFJs are often receptive to change and new ideas. As with so many things, people with the ISFJ personality type are more than the sum of their parts, and it is the way they use these strengths that defines who they are.

regina: ENTJ / “the commander” 

ENTJs are natural-born leaders. People with this personality type embody the gifts of charisma and confidence, and project authority in a way that draws crowds together behind a common goal. But unlike their Feeling (F) counterpart, ENTJs are characterized by an often ruthless level of rationality, using their drive, determination and sharp minds to achieve whatever end they’ve set for themselves. 

rumple: INTJ / “the architect” 

It’s lonely at the top, and being one of the rarest and most strategically capable personality types, INTJs know this all too well. It is often a challenge for them to find like-minded individuals who are able to keep up with their relentless intellectualism and chess-like maneuvering. People with the INTJ personality type are imaginative yet decisive, ambitious yet private, amazingly curious, but they do not squander their energy.

belle: INFJ / “the advocate” 

INFJs indeed share a unique combination of traits: though soft-spoken, they have very strong opinions and will fight tirelessly for an idea they believe in. They are decisive and strong-willed, but will rarely use that energy for personal gain – INFJs will act with creativity, imagination, conviction and sensitivity not to create advantage, but to create balance. Egalitarianism and karma are very attractive ideas to INFJs, and they tend to believe that nothing would help the world so much as using love and compassion to soften the hearts of tyrants.

Looking back..wasnt it perfect that Rumple was the one to be able to draw excalibur? He, who was destined to be a Savior, draws the sword that can only be drawn by the purest hero. Especially at a time where the new savior was the dark one.

It was!  I think the parallels there are quite beautiful.  I’m not sure how long A&E have had the destined-to-be-Savior arc planned for Rumplestiltskin, but it does jive very well with many past plot points (unlike a lot of things they’ve thrown into the story in later seasons).  I think it’s actually quite telling - once the darkness was out of his heart, he reverted to being somehow who could become a hero once he found his courage.

In context, even the fact that he took the darkness back at the end of his hero arc actually fits; Rumplestiltskin was born to have power, so no wonder why he seeks it out!  He feels like something is missing when he doesn’t have it, but with the life he ended up with, his only route to power has been via being the Dark One.  That’s all he knows, so it’s what he reaches for when a part of him knows that he’s supposed to have power and he feels incomplete without it.

The time has come for the Rumbelle spinoff

In all seriousness–why don’t they do this? It seems like a no-brainer. Rumbelle is probably the most fascinating story on OUAT but it gets in the way of what Kitsowitz want to sell, and they don’t have the ability to balance. Rather than keeping one or the other in a coma, move them to an independent show where they can shine. 

Yes, OUATIW was a ratings bomb (and that was when the mothership was a lot less leaky itself), but the president of ABC (or is he now ex-president) admitted that was largely his fault for scheduling it in a difficult time slot rather than using it to bridge the two OUAT mini-seasons, as was originally planned. Galavant, last season’s bridge series, did well enough to be renewed with a 1.1 rating for the finale; OUATIW was hovering at about .9 in its more difficult time slot so probably would have been fine as a bridge.

Furthermore, the Rumbelle spinoff would have a huge advantage over OUATIW right out the gate: Robert Carlyle, a proven draw and leading man, as Rumplestiltskin, the breakout character (with the Evil Queen) from the main show. OUATIW really shared only a setting (and elliptically at that) with OUAT, so there wasn’t a large draw for the existing audience (except in that they were both fantasy shows, but OUATIW had almost none of the real-world setting that originally drew many people to the main show). Rumple is one of OUAT’s most popular characters (if not the MOST popular) and Belle is extremely popular as well. And of course Rumbelle has been for years one of, if not the most, popular couples/stories (IMO that’s the problem: that they outshine Kitsowitz’s pet projects). 

There’s no question that RC has the talent, recognition, and standing to anchor a show, especially in a period trending away from thirty-ish pretty boys as leading men (many of the most popular/acclaimed shows of the last years, such as Breaking Bad, GOT, Boardwalk Empire, and the Blacklist, are headed by character actors in their forties/fifties). And Emilie has a solid established fanbase as well as being extremely talented and beautiful. 

(To be honest, if they were smart and could escape the grasp of the Mouse, they’d shop a Rumbelle spinoff to HBO–it’s exactly what that network needs right now. Fantasy has done very well for them, and they have a spot for a more real-world-based, lighter fantasy show now that True Blood is finished.)

Not to mention that Disney is gearing up for several years of BatB-palooza surrounding the live-action release and the 25th anniversary of the animated film. Synergy! While the target audiences for the Rumbelle show and the movie might be different (Rumbelle are better suited to a darker, more adult tone), each can only expand the brand of the other. 

Of course, the selling point of a spinoff would have to be that Kitsowitz were not the writers (I imagine any network would make that a requirement, considering how they’ve run OUAT into the ground and squandered the Frozen marketing windfall). Jane Espenson hasn’t been too impressive over the past few years, but she has the experience and reputation to be a show runner if she pulls it together, and especially gets a partner as she had on OUATIW.

A Milah Defense

Right. As I mentioned I have been seeing a fair bit of Milah hate on my dash. And while I told myself to just ignore it, that I have defended her enough and I wasn’t going to change anyones mind, I read a few things that just made me start typing. Because while you certainly don’t have to like Milah or ship Millian I just can’t sit by and read people making claims that have no relation to the woman and the relationship as it is presented on the show. Not because I need people to love her but because misunderstanding and misrepresenting Milah and Millian leads to a complete misinterpretation of Killian Jones and the beauty of Captain Swan.

Let me hit each point individually.

Captain Killian Jones was selfish or cruel while with Milah.
No evidence to support this in the show. We have three scenes of Killian as Captain Jones and while he is clearly a dick to cowards and strangers that knock into him (that’s another meta) there is nothing showing he is selfish, cruel, or the worst version of himself at this time. In fact the opposite is shown. He helps Milah escape her life, he doesn’t physically hurt Rumple (though no doubt he screwed him over psychologically), he seems respected and well-liked by his men with them willing to draw against the Dark One for him, and most importantly he fought Rumple. The Crocodile got Killian to fight by threatening to hurt his men. A cruel or selfish man wouldn’t have cared about that threat. The Jolly Roger is the fastest ship in all the realms a selfish man would have ran. But Killian stayed to protect his men and to protect Milah. How is that not the Killian Jones we know and love?

Killian didn’t “truly” love her.
Right. I have to try hard not to laugh about this because if you don’t think Killian Jones loved Milah with every fiber of his being you are kind of missing the point of his whole character. He spent hundreds of years trying to avenge her death. He thought he would never move on from her. He loved her so deeply and so truly even hundreds of years later that he begged Rumple to kill him so he could be reunited with her. The whole point of his villain backstory is to show us that he is motivated by having his “one true love gone in an instant” This is how he describes losing Milah as his true love. Killian loved Milah I can’t even believe that is something up for debate. Killian’s fierce and loyal love for Milah shows us his capacity to love and is part of what makes him perfect for Emma. 

Milah didn’t love Killian
I have seen arguments saying Milah didn’t love Killian but rather the life he gave her. While I agree that Milah was an adventurous soul and that what first attracted her to Killian was his adventurous life she tells us quite plainly that she also fell in love with Killian. Killian also tells Bae that they fell in love. The show is very obviously saying they loved each other. Milah stayed with him for 8-10 years on a cramped ship, that’s not something you do with a person you just tolerate or kind of like. The secondary argument then becomes that she didn’t love him “truly”. Putting aside the horrifying idea that some love is “better” than others (another meta for sure) on this show it doesn’t get any truer than facing your demons (i.e. her husband) and risking your life to save the man you love. If Milah was selfish and didn’t care about Killian she wouldn’t have shown up and stopped Rumple. And when she died she didn’t resent the sacrifice; her last words were “I love you.” You can headcanon all you want about her capacity to love but the fact is she loved Killian Jones and even Rumple called it a true love.

Milah is a horrible selfish person.
This is based on her treatment of Rumple and that she left her son to pursue what she wanted. There are mitigating circumstances but honestly I don’t really argue these points and neither does Milah. She straight up says that she was wrong to leave her husband. That she was the coward. That she let her misery (i.e. depression) cloud her judgement and spent every day of her life regretting her decision to leave her son. Killian tells Bae that they talked about going back for him when he was older. Look Milah KNOWS she was in the wrong and she feels guilty for it. A horrible and selfish person wouldn’t feel that way. Pan did the same to Rumple and had zero regrets. Milah is not Pan she is a very human, very flawed person who made a big mistake. But all too often people infer lots of other crap about Milah based on her one bad life choice and actions in a soul crushing marriage and, again, there is nothing in the show to support it.

Killian with Milah made each other into the worst versions of themselves.
Yeah this is just straight up head canon cause nothing on screen supports this in the slightest. For Milah the evidence is actually the opposite. With Killian she became confident, learned to sail and became part of a crew and family. When they get back to the ship it’s pretty obvious that Milah gives the orders as easily and readily as Killian. Milah becomes a better person with Killian. The only way this holds water is if one equates being a pirate with being cutthroat and villainous. Which is not a huge logical jump but certainly not one supported by what we have seen on screen. When Killian talks about defying the king he talks about living by their own rules and having honor. We never see a single adventure with Milah and Killian, we have no clue what kind of pirates they were or what good or bad things they got up too while together. Future episodes might prove this to be true but right now it doesn’t stand up. 

Emma gets to the REAL Killian. Milah only knew the pirate facade.
The only reason why there is a layer of Hook facade on Killian Jones is because he lost his first love and was devastated. He built his walls the same way Emma built hers after Neal. When Emma gets through Killian’s walls what she finds is the man Milah knew and the man Liam helped build. Additionally this is a troubling concept to me. That for hundreds of years Killian wasn’t Killian because he wasn’t the version of Killian we currently have? No person exists in a vacuum and everyone is the sum total of all their experiences, both good and bad. To say that it “wasn’t Killian” is just baffling. Killian is and was Hook. He is flawed, he chose to do horrible things, and now he is choosing not too. They aren’t different people they are all the same man. Milah certainly knew a younger, less tormented version of Killian Jones but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t any more or less real than the man Emma (and I) love.

Millian was a toxic relationship
This one also kills me because everything Killian knows about how to love and treat a woman he had to have learned from being in a relationship with Milah. When he asks Emma for the honor of knowing her history it’s because he knows that in a committed relationship you come to know each other’s vulnerabilities and tragic backstories. When he pushes Emma to confront the truths she doesn’t want to face with the right amount of gentleness and obstinacy it’s because he learned how to do it with Milah first. When he supports her, compliments her, and encourages her to reach her full potential that’s obviously what he did with Milah. Killian Jones, does not know how to do these things innately– he learned them. Emma admits that she isn’t good at relationships because she never had one, she never learned. Killian is the opposite he knows exactly how to be in a committed and healthy relationship because he was in one with Milah for almost a decade. And it’s that knowledge that makes him so perfect for Emma!

Look at the end of the day subtracting or minimizing Milah’s importance in Killian’s life means one is missing key and integral parts of his character. Killian Jones fights for love with Emma Swan because he knows what it is to love truly and he KNOWS it is worth going to the end of the world or time for. 

Killian Jones is perfect for Emma Swan because of his history with Milah not in spite of it.

proof that I’ve actually been working on this!

I’m really excited to finish this, and then begin on the Baelfire (also neverland inspired) piece next. I’d like to do Belle and Gideon as well, in serious settings rather than my penchant for drawing Belle happy and smiling (I just want this family to be happy damnit). I’m really not sure positive how I’m going to pose Belle tho, or what she should be holding/doing/the overall feel? I’m thinking determined. What do you guys think?

HAPPY RUMBELLE CHRISTMAS IN JULY @noora7!!

The prompt was “Rumbelle eat through Southeast Asia,” which is fantastic because Rumbelle NEEDS to go on an international trip together.  The top picture is Rumbelle eating Laksa Yong Tau Foo and Chili Crab with Mantou in Singapore, and the bottom pic is Rumbelle sharing a coconut at The Grand Palace in Bangkok, Thailand. 

My original plan was to also draw Rumbelle eating takoyaki and karaage at a fireworks festival in Japan and checking out a durian stand in Malaysia (with Rumple being less enthusiastic about the fruit), but months of spending 8-5 on a computer at work and then drawing after work caught up to me and I developed an repetitive strain injury in my right elbow.  I haven’t been able to draw for the past two or so weeks because of it, and I ended up skimping on the details in the Thailand picture as well.  I’m disappointed that I couldn’t finish the other illustrations, but I hope you like these two.

Some of you may be wondering why Belle is wearing jeans in the second pic.  It’s because The Grand Palace and temples in Thailand have a dress code, and Belle–the avid reader–would’ve read up on that before the trip.

Niall runs into Liam’s ex at his favorite coffee shop off Corporation Street at Second Cup Coffee where he’s gone, ironically, for his third cup of coffee for the day. Too much coffee always gives him a right case of the shits but he’s really trying to hold off on that today; he needs to get those reports done for his supervisor before he gets named Manchester’s Worst Curator. Louis deserves that title way before Niall does. 

Liam’s ex is wearing that green and gold Packers beanie, otherwise Niall wouldn’t have recognized him. He did one semester abroad to Los Angeles when they were in uni and he thinks he’s some sort of expatriate, or something. Niall rolls his eyes and places his order to the barista, and then he goes to tap Liam’s ex on the shoulder. He’s got one of those adjectival names, like Tall or Skinny. Something like that. 

The guy jumps in his seat and somehow his face hasn’t even managed to look surprised; he still looks like a miserable sod, and between wanting to laugh and pat his cheek, Niall feels his brow crease. Suddenly he remembers Liam and his boyfriend’s soft face, and the way he’d always pull the edge of his beanie lower with the same sad look, like he didn’t want to be miserable but he wasn’t sure how to make himself not.

This is from “True Love and Set Backs” in which Belle takes the place of Milah as Rumple’s wife during his pre-Dark One days.

Belle is trying to see how bad the break is which requires probing to feel where the broken ends are and how well they line up. After walking on a freshly broke leg for nearly a week this is not Rumple’s idea of a good time- but he knows it’s nessesary and that Belle means well.

Belle can’t tell anything for certain- but she isn’t thrilled with what she sees and feels.

@deals-and-the-chipped-cup

anonymous asked:

hi sorry to bother but I just wanted to ask what you meant by rumple being queer coded? thanks :)

So, queer coding is when a character is given stereotypically queer (gender non-conforming or gay/lesbian, usually) traits but never identified as such.  This happens a LOT with male villains in media, to the point that “sissy villain” is a trope listed on tvtropes.

After all, there’s nothing manlier than beating up a sissy. It doesn’t even matter that the limp-wristed villain is powerful, he looks weak and homosexual and that’s what matters.

This trope shows up mainly in Western works and those Japanese works aimed at a male audience; if the villain is presented as certain kinds of swishy, female fans are likely to declare him utterly fabulous.

(emphasis mine)

Once you know it’s a thing to look for, you’d be surprised at how prevalent it is in western media, it’s absolutely insane.

I’ve written before about how Rumple is an extremely gynocentric character in that he chooses traditionally female roles for himself (an association with fiber arts, very focused on his role as parent and caretaker to a child) but in his Dark One persona especially, well…

his wrists are a little limp

he’s extremely flamboyant

I mean, REALLY flamboyant

He prances a little

and his clothes. Tight leather everything, big sleeves…he draws attention to himself.

His every movement is over the top and theatrical and, well, effeminate. This article is pretty good.

Even traits that have become tropes for villains (being well-dressed; having feminine mannerisms or manner of speech; being aristocratic in manner, wealth and appearance; being a smooth talker; having flamboyant hand gestures, manners of dress, and decor in their homes/lairs; having little to no interest in women; being conniving or catty etc etc etc) show how deeply imbedded queer coding as been to the point where queer qualities are associated with evil.

DO!Rumple pings all of those except little to no interest in women (although approximately 2 women in 300 years…). He even has the well decorated house to back it up.

So yeah, Rumplestiltskin: the queer coded gender nonconforming anti-villain of my dreams.
