has anyone posted this yet because this is pure gold
Thank you, Matilda.
To me, everyone on OUAT, the writers, the producers, the cast, all have descended into insanity when it comes to Regina. Regina has no business being around Henry. No one connected to the show suggests this idea or seems to understand that Regina is extremely abusive. They just don't get what they are writing for whatever reason.
The issue for me is that they aren’t dealing with the abuse. Instead they’re just pretending it never happened which is frustrating at the very least and insulting at best.
If they dealt with that abuse and didn’t frame Regina’s codependence on Henry as something positive, then I would probably change my mind about the situation, but they aren’t. And that’s the problem. Not that she gets to be around Henry but that her abuse of him isn’t mentioned whatsoever and he’s not allowed to deal with the internal struggles any kid would face in his situation.
Do you really believe they're setting Regina up to go dark completely, even when she has a soulmate? That could be interesting...
I think they might be. I think it would be a good message too, that just because you have a chance at happiness doesn’t mean you get to just do shitty things again. That you have to continuously work to be good and be better and deserve that happy ending you so desperately want.
That there’s a limit to how many chances you can throw back into people’s faces before you run out completely.
Does anyone still want a scene where Emma starts talking about a Henry's first day of kindergarten or his first trip to the beach, and then for her to realize they were all false memories? Same with Henry remembering stuff and realizing it was a dream.
Yes. Yes I do. I want them to mourn that life actually together. I want them to say it was real to them. I want Henry to think about the life he had with Emma and compare it to the one Regina forced on him. I want him to get mad. I want him to feel the loss of that happiness and that childish innocence. Henry deserves to deal with this stuff. He shouldn’t be stunted just because it would be ‘inconvenient for poor wittle Regina’.
I want Emma and Henry to continue some of their established traditions from their memories, like Christmas morning traditions and the like. I want them to talk about those memories and the people they thought they’d known. I want Henry to talk about Avery. I want Avery to visit!
Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan worked together on making The Golden Record, a message sent out to space for any extraterrestrials to find and learn about existence on Earth. Ann Druyan had the idea of putting human brain waves as one of the sounds used so whoever finds it could learn and understand human thought. While working together, they both fell in love with each other. Carl proposed to her and shortly after she decided to record her brainwaves. So instead of sending out brainwaves thinking about history and science and all that was originally planned she recorded herself thinking about love, true love and that’s what was sent out into the unknown universe. If you don’t think that’s beautiful you’re lying.
So Eddy and JMo have both hinted at Emma and Elsa bonding over their magic. JMo even calls her Emma's "first friend" (Regina who? Lol). Honestly, for me as an Emma fan this will be a welcome change from all the times Regina has belittled her for her "pathetic waste of ability". BAs are always going on about how SQ both having magic makes them TL. Well, apparently Regina isn't the only one with magic who Emma can relate to. I'm happy for Frozen Swan, if it means a lot less SQ on my screen.
I get so frustrated with the ‘Regina can teach Emma magic’ stuff because Rum taught her first and people seem to forget that. And unlike Regina who is all ‘use your anger’ Rum taught her to think of who she was trying to protect, teaching her magic from love.
But yeah, I’d be interested in Emma bonding over magic with someone not Regina.
Yes, lets add slut shaming to the issues on the show, that will help.
And how would finding out Rumple murdered Milah (which Emma already knows) change anything with Hook? And Henry is a good kid, finding out that Hook saw his first love murdered in front of him is only likely to garner sympathy from the boy.
And how exactly would finding out that Hook respected Milah enough to help her escape an abusive situation, treat her as a partner and first mate (unlike Rumple) cause her to think he doesn’t respect women.
Hook has his faults, not respecting women is not one of them.
The only thing I can somewhat support this (not shaming Emma for kissing Hook part) is if Henry found out how Hook sold Bae out to the Lost Boys. I can see Henry being pissed off at Hook for that (I don’t want him to be pissed off at Emma for it).
With the Milah situation, Rumple was in the wrong—100 percent. He killed Milah in cold-blood when she dared to claim that she did not love him. He played judge, jury and executioner on Milah for not only stating her feelings for him, but for leaving Bae, even though he himself is guilty of having done so.
How about instead we have an episode where Henry gets ALL his memories back, including the ones Regina wiped from his mind. You know, the one where she tells him she’s going to murder everyone he’s ever known and then kidnap him so he will love her again and be ‘fully’ hers and then he can see her for the hero she is. (Seriously what the hell was she on?)
Or how about Henry finds out concretely about how Graham died? Or about how Regina murdered Henry’s great grandfather? Oh let’s let Henry know about Graham’s rape that’s it. Yeah. Or maybe what Regina did to Owen and why he grew up into the Greg Mendell that kidnapped him. Mhhmm.
Emma is not the mother Henry should be having issues with. I’m just saying.
The rest of this confession has already been addressed in the above responses.
Randomly remembered that it’s Digimon Adventure’s 15th anniversary this year.
1) Lol I asked you to respond to this privately so we can talk it out like reasonable people but instead you published this on your blog
2) Why are you condemning me for posting something similar to what your friend posted? Has it ever occurred to you that I don’t follow your friend, I don’t know who they are nor have I seen the post on my dashboard?
3) Yes, why not I go through the 100’s of pages of all the crime/science/horror/creepy blogs on the internet everytime I decide to post something just to see if it has been posted already.
4) If you are referring to how I my followers “ran eeriie” of this site. Then you should know that me and eeriie have never spoken before, I have never mentioned her name once on my blog. You automatically assumed we had an argument but we didn’t.
5) Do you really think my followers ran her out of this site on purpose? Or do you think it was one person constantly sending her hate and mentioning my name just to start some petty drama.
6) Never the less I apologized, privately messaged eeriie and hoped for the best.
7) To be honest, I was hoping to reach a compromise with you. People have directed me to your blog, and told me how you have mentioned my name. I saw your post a month ago. I saw how you called me “boring” among other accusations but I ignored because it was stupid.
8) But you’re still talking about this. You say you’re 30 years old and you’re too old for drama, but you literally posted this screenshot claiming how I “stole posts” just yesterday. Why are you still on this topic? Why are you picking on someone 12 years younger than you? What did I ever do to you?
9) I’m not perfect. I have flaws as anyone else, but if your going to accuse me of something I don’t do multiple times then don’t get mad at me for when I stand up for myself.
And this is why I love Sixpenceee so much. God, she is so much more mature than that 30 year old lady.
Ok honestly, you deal with your hate in the best way possible. This was well written, very kind when you had all rights to be angry & bitter, and everyone can tell this tumblr user is being downright ridiculous and childish.
Also cudos to you for explicitly saying “don’t send this person hate” in your other post. You are mature, intelligent and thoughtful, and it’s no wonder everyone really admires you.
Washoe was a chimp who was taught sign language.
One of Washoe’s caretakers was pregnant and missed work for many weeks after she miscarried. Roger Fouts recounts the following situation:
"People who should be there for her and aren’t are often given the cold shoulder—her way of informing them that she’s miffed at them. Washoe greeted Kat [the caretaker] in just this way when she finally returned to work with the chimps. Kat made her apologies to Washoe, then decided to tell her the truth, signing "MY BABY DIED." Washoe stared at her, then looked down. She finally peered into Kat’s eyes again and carefully signed "CRY", touching her cheek and drawing her finger down the path a tear would make on a human (Chimpanzees don’t shed tears). Kat later remarked that one sign told her more about Washoe and her mental capabilities than all her longer, grammatically perfect sentences." 
more about Washoe:
after the death of her children, researchers were determined to have Washoe raise a baby and brought in a ten month chimpanzee named Loulis. one of the caretakers went to Washoe’s enclosure and signed “i have a baby for you.” Washoe became incredibly excited, yelling and swaying from side to side, signing “baby” over and over again. then she signed “my baby.”
the caretaker came back with Loulis, and Washoe’s excitement disappeared entirely. she refused to pick Loulis up, instead signing “baby” apathetically; it was clear that the baby she thought she was getting was going to be Sequoyah. eventually Washoe did approach Loulis, and by the next day the two had bonded and from then on she was utterly devoted to him.
*information shamelessly paraphrased from When Elephants Weep by Jeffrey Masson.
Even more interestingly, after Washoe and Loulis bonded, she started teaching him American Sign Language the same way that human parents teach their children language. It only took Loulis eight days to learn his first sign from Washoe, and aside from the seven that his human handlers learned around him, he learned to speak in ASL just as fluently as Washoe and was able to communicate with humans in the same way she could.
now if y’all don’t think this is the tightest shit you can get outta my face
reblog for the commentary
Sometimes it’s best to pretend the show ended before the series finale
Fans everywhere (via randomstuffilike1995)
It doesn’t even matter what the show is
His so called “character development” was nothing more than a switch being flipped. He went from interesting, conflicted villain to boring, puppy-eyed love interest in ten seconds flat.
This is one of my most favorite endings to a Disney movie, hands down.
Fuck the sword of a Hun who was going to destroy China. Fuck any sort of gift from the Emperor. They’re these *things* that have no meaning whatsoever.
His little girl is home from a *war*, safe and sound, and that is the most important thing in the world to him. The world can go to hell, but it doesn’t matter, because Mulan’s home.
this scene ALWAYS makes me cry
