Whoniverse: Class - 14/? Miss Quill and Charlie moments (1x05)

Can we talk about this scene? Because both of their reactions are complex and morally gray. Miss Quill wants revenge because she sees it as the only way to possible get some closure.  Life is about fighting back.  Miss Quill needs to fight back against those who have harmed her and her people, because if she doesn’t fight, then she isn’t living.  She’s single-minded in this.  Miss Quill puts the destruction of the Shadow Kin above a chance for her own freedom and even her own life.  

Then there is Charlie, who clings to his Rhodian morals and sense of justice.  He doesn’t have the same thirst for revenge as her, but he believes in punishment–harsh punishment– for those who kill.  He hesitates–not because he opposes genocide, but because he clings to hope.  Yes, Charlie has more qualms about it than Miss Quill (many of which are prompted by Matteusz), but if he wanted to, Charlie could easily justify genocide as a righteous punishment for what the Shadow Kin did.  The reason he doesn’t want to–the real reason–is that Charlie doesn’t want lose the Rhodian souls and the hope they give him. That is what dictates his actions.

i always wonder why peter pan won't grow up, yet hook is an adult?

There’s two possible explanations! The first is simply that Peter came to Neverland as a child and Hook came to Neverland as an adult, and the magic of Neverland simply freezes you at the age you are when you enter the island. This is the case on Once Upon A Time, and also in Disney’s Peter Pan, since we see in Return to Neverland that Peter, Hook, the pirates, and the Lost Boys are all the same age as they were in the first movie.

The other explanation, the one that you’ll find in the original book, is that Neverland actually has no such effect. Neverland is a magical island, absolutely, but the word"never" in its name has nothing to do with “never” growing up. Wendy, John, and Michael have their individual imaginative ideas of what Neverland is, every child does, and Neverland can be seen as the physical manifestation of all of those collaborative imaginations. But the only person who never grows up is Peter, because that’s what his Neverland is. We know this because the Lost Boys do grow up, and Peter “weeds them out” (which means different things depending on how you interpret it - some think he kills them, some think they become pirates, some think they simply leave the island). So Peter doesn’t grow up because that’s what he imagined as his Neverland, which doesn’t actually affect Hook (or anyone else)!
