Emma & Regina ♛ Crazy in love
I actually really like this dress. It’s so obviously NOT an Emma Swan dress, it sends a clear message…THREE CHEERS FOR THE WARDROBE dept… They have done it yet again!!!!’
The cut says, “I give in, I will play the Joan Cleaver Leave it to Beaver role that everyone here expects from me…I have found my “family” and will do what it takes so they keep me.”
The color is horrible and obviously chosen to be the most unflattering for JMOs skin tone and coloring…also, they have kinda run out of color themes. She can’t wear red, grey, or black…those are the Swan Mills Family colors. White is for snow queen And Elsa is in blue…that leaves the ugly peachy pink for her date with Hook.
Makes it’s pretty obvious what wardrobe thinks of CS.
This was so freaking important! They should have included this. See how hurt Henry was, so it was so beautiful when he finally did go see Regina. Also another big thing is that it’s a Henry and Rumple scene! We never get to see those!
Man, this was an awesome scene! It was great character development for Rumple and Henry, a nice moment between them (which you would think they would seek more since they are the only real link each other have to Neal), and it showcased how much Jared Gilmore has grown as an actor. The only annoying thing is how Rumple emphasized his and Emma’s importance in Henry’s life while completely excluding Regina’s role- again. You know ‘cause only ‘blood relations count’ with the makeup of a child’s personality. Obviously.
It’s always one step forward two steps back with OUAT on any progressive political issues:( And it’s ridiculous that this got cut while all the boring shipper stuff and stupid plot hole coverups got put through (that whole bit with Emma and Elsa excusing their not using magic on their inability to control it? I call BS writers. Find a better cover).
This isn’t going to make me very popular but I think at this point all the obsession in the OUAT fandom with various ships (Rumbelle, CS, SQ, HQ, etc…) is contributing to the progressively worse presentation of the story. I mean I’m not a fan of CS and I do enjoy SQ but even those scenes at this point have been more about fan service than well written plot forwarding and character development. They want ratings so bad they’re catering to everyone (even if the SQ is just largely queerbaiting) at the expense of decent storytelling.
Like many I question if this show is even worth watching anymore, Lily Sparks’ recaps are far more entertaining and better written.
I would find it hard to stop watching Lana Parrilla though;)
Neil Gaiman’s The Sleeper and the Spindle, is an opportunity to show how “marketable” the Swan Queen storyline can be. We’ve had a lot of success with RedValentino & FedEx.. let’s keep the momentum.
Take a minute to comment using the #SwanQueen tag, RT & Fav Gaiman’s post. (X) Share how excited you are to read/buy this story to Neil, ABC & OUaT affilates. We have to make some noise showing that there is indeed an audience that craves a new type of fairytale.
