Hey, I wanted to ask if you guys agree: I read somewhere that [possible spoilers!?] the thing that breaks the curse has already been hinted at. We have been repeatedly informed, quite obviously, that "true love's kiss will break any curse". It did work for Graham, who remembered after kissing Emma - assuming it was true love's kiss and nothing else - but what about Charming/Snow? It doesn't work on them. I also dont think this could be truly what breaks the entire curse (e.g dwarves can't love).
The producers said during the Panel that there were hints of how the curse can be broken, and it’s only Emma who can do it. It’s not a true love’s kiss that will break the curse. It’s Emma and Emma alone. They said so themselves, Snow and Charming only served to create the savior, that’s their only role in the curse.
And no, Emma kissing everyone isn’t going to break the curse either.
Being a Emma/Graham shipper, obviously I’m going to see their kiss with a completely different interpretation than those who don’t ship them, but that’s the subject to another time :P
Actually, even though Pino is in his FTL costume, your theory that he's possibly August is still wrong, since Pino is quite clearly ginger, and I seriously doubt August went to the trouble of dying his hair.
The theory isn’t mine. I was simply pointing out the fault in your ask. If he is or isn’t, I don’t really care since all I want is for August to go already lol I particularly don’t think so, but considering Jiminy was a human that was transformed into a cricket then transformed into a human again when they went to SB, then really, anything is possible ;)
love this blog and its mods, why are people allergic to differing opinions.
I don’t think it’s the different opions bit that people have a problem with (and by people I mean Regina/Emma fans). It’s the part where the three of us happen to see it more logically than the shippers. Ship them all you want, there’s nothing wrong with that, that’s what fanon is for, but being upset because we happen to see the relationship as it is without ship!rose-colored glasses is ridiculous.
We love all characters, but in case it wasn’t obvious this is a general OUAT blog, so we are going to “support” what is considered canon - even though there are parts we like more and we like less, Serena likes August, I don’t, for exemple (reason why this time the blog features Rumple/Belle). Last year the theme featured Regina for a while, we had the christmas icon, we had the Valentine’s day theme, we had a theme in honor of Graham, now we have a theme for Rumple/Belle.
Regardless of our opinions we keep the blog general, we post about everyone. What we think of a certain character or ship is beside the point. I’m sorry if anyone gets annoyed because we don’t say what they want to hear, but that’s why there are specific blogs. We do not condone attacks on the shippers, but we will give our opinion on the ship if asked.
I should also point out that fuckyeahonceuponatime is very Regina/Emma friendly, so if anyone wants a “general” blog with a different focus, you’re welcome to follow them :)
so I read your theory on Graham/Emma.... why do you think they brought in this new guy? Does it bother you that emma seems to have forgotten about Graham already? or how they try to make him like graham with smartass remarks?
I’m a bit suspicious to talk because I don’t particularly like him LOL I think he’s too blunt and straight forward with his flirting and advances, which doesn’t really make much sense to me in the overall plotline.
The frst time I saw him I immediatelly got the feeling he was a more laid back and blunt Graham. I’m not sure if they did it on purpose or it just happened, but even during the filming of those first scenes the person on set had mistook him for Graham.
I have no idea what he wants, I just don’t know what to make of him.
So do you think that there is hope for Graham and Emma still, or do you think that ship has sailed? I've heard in interviews of producers talking about how love fights all obstacles and how death is just the greatest obstacle. Personally, I'm a die-hard Graham/Emma shipper and I'm finding it very hard to like August as Graham's 'replacement.' (Though I don't think they will take that angle). What are your thoughts?
All right, you are getting the answer from the biggest Emma/Graham shipper of all the 3 mods LOL
I was completely in denial land, hoping upon hope the writers would bring Jamie back somehow, but it was wishful thinking, obviously. After all these articles though I’m really hopeful and positive. I don’t think saying that death is the greatest obstacle when talking about Emma/Graham was just for nothing. I don’t think the would purposefully string us along when they know there are so many of us who want Jamie back and loved Emma/Graham.
Then we have the wishing well scene, that we do know it’s a real well (since it was there Prince Thomas disappeared from) and who lost the book was Henry and not Emma. I know the scene was simply to create the mood for the book coming back, but it was still Henry who lost it, and the only thing Emma lost was Graham.
Then we have the producers saying they want to bring Jamie back. The huntsman is still alive in the past FTL, so it’s perfectly plausible he’d show up again. It’d be a really difficult to bring Graham back, but the show is based on magic, so anything is possible. If the producers have something planned they can easily bring the Sheriff back, but that’s something for a further down the line storyline.
Long story short: I still have high hopes for them and a very complicated theory brewing in my brain. So, don’t give up hope. Just the fact they want to bring him back is something incredibly good considering that before that article most of us truly believe it was the end of Jamie in the show.
We just opened the ask and there are already 13 messages LOL. Let’s see if I can tackle all of this.
BTW - it says the askbox has 7 messages but tumblr is only showing 3 of them, so if your question isn’t here then tumblr ate it.
Yes, the box is finally open so I can ask! I’ve noticed many characters wear small pendents around their necks, and I’ve driven myself crazy trying to figure out what symbols are on each person. The main one I’m trying to figure out is Belle’s; throughout “Skin Deep,” she has a small gold pendant on, but I can’t figure out what it is! I’ve been searching for closeups of her neck area, but I haven’t had any luck. Think you can help me out? P.S. It wouldn’t let me do it in the askbox because it said I had a link?
I noticed Emma and the Stranger wear necklaces but I never paid attention to the others. Emma wears a Phyrra necklace with a swan wax seal - you can check it out here. I’ll be sure to pay attention and look for the others from now on. Strange, you should be able to send a link fine via the submit box.
The stranger claims his name is August in the sneak peak. Augustus was the title for Emperor in the Greco-Roman period. The stranger might be a King. As for W. Booth, I only know of one famous John W. Booth, who is best known as Lincoln assassin. I do not know if that is suppose to be a clue or if that is just a coincidence. His name and Emma’s comment about him maybe being married or hiding body parts, plus his general appearance makes me think of Blue Beard, but why would he be a writer?
I personally don’t think he’s a FT character. I thought his name was eerily too much serial killer like LOL. Interesting info though, maybe thats simply to show he neither good nor bad. He probably has some personal agenda. I’m betting on him being the 7 year old boy that found Emma though, and the strange circunstance in which she showed up probably stuck with him which could have caused him to search for the story behind it.
can you please make a gif of Ashley (cinderella) getting her proposal? that would be awesome, thanks
I’ll try to work on that as soon as I can, or if anyone wants to do it as a request, pelase go ahead :D
@anon #1: That’s an interesting theory. Imagine a convent full of FTL fairies LOL. Though it’d kind of make sense for her to become a Mother Superior.
@karen: I find it a little hard to see EQ as Ursual given she’s already the Evil Queen and quite possibly The Miller’s daughter. That’d be quite a handful to be yet a third character LOL. Though the way she played the genie and Hansel & Gretel she could very well play with Ariel’s need and become her Ursula. Before last night’s episode we weren’t even sure Belle was in SB. She could stay locked up for a while, there are many reasons why she would, but hopefully the writers will address the story again, as it’s one of the most interesting twists so far (to me anyway!)
@anon #2: I think that would be a little difficult since The BBW is supposed to be her rival. I’m still betting Dr Whale is the Wolf ;P
@ichbinwal: 1)They dropped anvil sized hints throughout the show that Mr Gold remembered and last night they just officially confirmed it, so yes, he knows about the curse. I don’t think he is in cahoots with Regina. They may be working alongside but towards different goals. It’s pretty clear they are antagonists who want different things from the curse. Let’s just say that it’s in their best interests to play nice with each other. 2)People in SB don’t remember who they are, so it makes no difference to them whether Belle is alive or dead, because they don’t know her ;) 3)I don’t think true love’s kiss can just break any curse that simply. The curse Regina used is the most powerful curse ever created so a simple kiss wouldn’t be able to break it, otherwise Sean and Ashley, and Mary Margaret and David would have broken it already :P
@mundoguigaz: yes, we were all excited! lol
Phew ok, we have almost 100 asks to answer so bear with us. After every episode you people go crazy lol. I’m going to answer a btach right now, but since there are a lot of messages we may take a while to get to everything.
@can-i-be-a-princess: Nice catch! :D You can see it on the right hand side
@anon #1: Belle is listed for episode 14, so we know for a fact she will show up. Hopefully they’ll go back to their story soon though, this was definitely one of the best episodes yet :)
@anon #2: If you mean tortured by her father, then yes. Everything she said was a lie, that much is clear. Her father would NEVER hurt Belle, much less torture and lock her up in a tower. Belle was definitely imprisioned, but it was by the Queen. She’s in a psych ward now, so I guess it’s safe to say that Regina did torture her in a way. Belle isn’t crazy, and my bet is that she remembers (if not everything then she has an idea) and spent 28 years locked up and treated as insane.
@talalaland: Jane Espenson mentioned on her twitter Emilie’s accent and I’m guessing they thought it was just cute and decided to let her keep it. Belle is European anyway, so there is no reason for her to fake an American accent.
@anon #3: Most of us do too! At least me, Serena and Sherrie LOL. I really REALLY hope for a happy ending! Obviously it isn’t going to happen now, and if they manage to free Belle I doubt Mr Gold is going to have his happy ending so soon. So hopefully by the end of the show when everyone get their happy endings back, Rumple will be able to find his way back to Belle :)
@justgemmasheart: No idea when it’s coming to the UK. Somebody asked jane Espenson that not too long ago and she didn’t know either. Hopefully they won’t take too long to pick it up considering the good ratings.
@anon #1: I don’t really think so, it’d be nice if someone got their memory back by the finale, making it a great season cliffhanger and would give Henry an ally next season, but it doesn’t seem like the writers/producers want to do that just yet. And the curse isn’t as simple as kissing your true love and everything is good again, otherwise Mary Margaret and David would have remembered as well.
@anon #2: In FTL the Queen wasn’t the most powerful witch casting the most powerful curse, so really, a true love’s kiss could break any magical spell. IN SB things are VERY different, so it isn’t as simple as that. I think Emma is just weaking the curse with her presence, but I don’t think it’s just a true love’s kiss that will break it. It will have to be a common effort by everyone. Emma wealens it and the rest of the people get their free will back and help breaking the curse too, even if willingly.
@anon #3: It doesnt end or confirm anything though. She could die and be back in flashbacks, and it does’t necessarily means she appears in SB ;)
@ anon #4: Yeah everything is old. They were all send to our world in 1983, so the cars and computers are according to that year. I actually never paid attention to the married thing! And the funny thing is, the only married couple is actually Kathryn and David.
@anon #5: That’s a good question, they never actually mentioned anything and we didn’t see Red in Cinderella’s weeding, so I’m going to bet they didn’t know each other. I think Snow was just a common denominator between the two (and everyone else, really). I’d love it if they were all friends in FTL, though.
@anon #6: Thank you! Well, the curse isn’t broken that easily, really. It takes a lot more than just being reunited with their true love. Not to mention Ashley didn’t look very happy in the sneak peek, you could see she was clearly upset with how things were going between her and Sean. There’s a lot more things involving the curse and how it’s going to be broken and my guess is that it will be very very hard ;) And even if I’m a little late, yes we will see more of David/Emma :D
@anon #1: Yup, she’ll be on episode 1.14 Dreamy, featuring Grumpy (and possibly the 7 Dwarves!) Probably to be aired on February 26th or March 4th, depending on the hiatus. But don’t quote me on that.
@anon #2: Thank youuu, we try to answer all questions (and believe me, we get A LOT lol). If your question hasn’t been answered it’s either because we didn’t get it, we haven’t reached it yet, or because it has already been answered.
@anon #3: Sure, I think we can work on that. Its actually a good idea since a lot of people still seem to be a bit lost about who’s supposed to be who.
@anon #4: It’s a possible theory. My personal opinion is that he’s the Bad Wolf, but at this point he can really be anyone. We don’t really know anything about him, do we? ;)
eta: ooops seems like Serena beat me to one of the questions LOL.
@lifeasazeitgeist: You are right, I think he’s still too young to grasp grey areas (and really, so many of us don’t when it comes down to Regina), so to him there’s no reason or excuse to what she did. He believes she’s an evil witch, coupled that with a life that doesn’t seem to have been very good, and Henry finds the explanation.
@anna: It’s not the curse that made Regina incapable of love though, she was already like that before (killed her father, killed Snow’s father, etc). I think the price she had to pay was losing everything she loved (or what was left) and having a void she’d never be able to fill. I agree with the rest though, and I still wonder if it came to that what Regina would do, spare Henry or not? At this point I think she’d have second thoughts but it wouldn’t be enough, she’d still put herself first (as she’s been doing so far).
@doidre: Yeah, I completely agree! I think that at moments it does feel like that, then there are those displays of affection that could either be for the public, or genuine, but considering it’s regina we can never tell. It doesn’t change the fact that Henry has no real/emotional attachment to her and I really doubt it’s something that came out of nowhere. If he had been living under a loving home he’d have at least some sort of conscience crisis, after all, how could he bring down the woman he loved as a mom?
quite a few messages to answer. Nothing too spoilery, but I’ll keep them under read more for length.
