Hi, regarding Regina supporting Emma. I believe they happen mostly back in season 4b, particularly when they went out to fetch Lily. Emma was ready to kill Lily to protect her family but Regina helped her made the right decision by saying that she knew what it's like to succumb into the darkness and that Emma will follow through Gold's plan if she kills Lily. Also, I remember Regina trying to plead Snow's case right before Cruella's death. Emma was not ready to forgive her parents then (tbc)

(Cont) but Regina was able to make sense of how Snow has been trying to right the wrong things she had done in the past. She was trying to make Emma see her mother’s point of view. And lastly, when the chernabog was unleashed in Storybrooke and Regina thought it was chasing her. She decided to leave Emma’s car and drew it on the town line in order to protect Emma (of course they didn’t knew then that it was really after Emma). (Tbc)

(Cont) anyway, those scenes aren’t particularly Regina showing “support” to Emma but rather being a voice of reason that Emma can listen to because she had lived longer and experienced more (esp when it comes to the “dark side”) and I guess in a way seeing Regina was right both about forgiving Snow and not killing Lily, her telling Emma what to do or not to do was the support(?) Emma needed at that particular time. Sorry this was long but I hope it helps you. 

Thank you, that does help! It kinda confirms the sense I was getting, and I know others said this as well, that Regina’s more rational/action-y kind of support than emotional. Like instead of trying to support Emma emotionally herself she’ll try to get her and Snow on the same level so Snow can do it. And of course do what she can to make sure Emma doesn’t go dark and things like that. Almost more like she’s working behind the scenes to make sure that Emma can do what she needs to? And sort of balancing out the “I’m on your side” emotional support from her parents and Hook by being a voice of reason like you said, and telling her some harsh truths when needed.

And now I feel like Regina REALLY needs to figure out that Emma isn’t some innately good beacon of goodness and that it’s a choice and that Regina can make that same choice… It’s almost like Regina’s put Emma on this pedestal and she’s torn between jealousy and admiration and wanting to prove herself, and just like Killian with Liam she feels she can never measure up, but unlike Killian her initial reaction was to be jealous and angry? Idk. Sorry, I’m rambling now, but yes. Thanks for this! It really helped put it all into words for me and got me thinking some more. :D

Sapphic Studying Challenge (Week 1)

Hey, all! It’s your mod in the house! And after some group discussion and mild procrastination, I’ve got a little something for ya’ll. We’re going to be doing a new challenge every Monday! Participation isn’t mandatory (I wouldn’t do that to you guys) but with summer coming to an end, it’s time to get ready for school, and there’s no better way to boost enthusiasm like trying new things. (art cred)

This week’s challenge: Line up your supplies, take inventory, test them out, and go wild! Snap a picture and put it in the tag, while you’re at it! Since for most of us, this is our first week back at uni/school, this one is just for fun!

Since it’s Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and there’s tons of Asian DA-related stuff, I thought I’d finally post the super cool photos I had taken at ECCC 2016. Seriously I squealed when I saw them. He did such a great job! It’s a nice way to remember how well this costume turned out.
