Swan Queen AU - Emma and Regina try to come out to Storybrooke. *cough*regina and emma are swen and storybrooke is the sq haters*cough*
Who knew an evil queen had a soft spot for children?
#it was probably her dream to have like a barn full of kids with her stable boy, Daniel, and they’d be happy, and she would raise them and let them love whoever they pleased. She’d be so happy, just Daniel and her pride and joy children. #But no that didn’t happen did it? #NO #instead Daniel died in her arms and she became a pawn to do the Dark One’s dirty work #and she never thought anyone would ever love her again #so there went her dream of love #there went her dream for children #for a quiet life away from Cora, away from magic #but here she is, being reminded of what truly matters to her #past the need to avenge her true love #her dream of love #love children offer without even trying #the evil queen doesn’t exist around children #nope #just the trapped stable girl who dreamed of love, trying to figure everything out and do it right #unlike her mother
You left him, you abandoned him!
— And there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t feel sorry for that..for yun
#my poor baby#i don’t trust people who don’t at least sympathize with milah#you were screwed over by a patriarchal system baby#you were selfish and loving and flawed as fuck#and in the end you were brutally murdered by your husband because he did the same thing as you#so he punished you#you wanted to be respected and loved because you received neither with rumple#and you got both with killian#rachel shelley#once upon a time
Things I want from S4 of Once Upon a Time
- Emma to get a decent love interest
- The ‘Marian problem’ resolved in a way that isn’t horrible to everyone and isn’t racist as fuck
- no surprise relatives
- no anti-adoption rhetoric
- no racism
- no sexism
- less homophobia
- explanation of how Aurora was pregnant for 15 months and how Snow knew she was pregnant the exact moment it happened
- Belle to realize that her relationship is abusive as fuck and leave for good
- everyone to realize Rumple is an abusive misogynist who has actively abused multiple main characters and manipulated all the rest
None of these will happen. :S
Regina Mills (aka Lana Parrilla) managing to break your heart even in a deleted scene.
#how certain she is that no one will ever love her hurts my heart so badly#try to tell me that this poor child was not abused i dare you#once upon a time#regina mills#sweet baby regina#henry the father#ouat deleted scenes#going home
#this hurts me so badly#not even just on a shipper level#but you just know that regina thought that she was done with this#done with destruction and devastation#but here they are at the end#and destruction is the only gift she has to give#everything between them has been forgiven#but this is still how the story has to end#once upon a time#regina mills#evil queen#prince charming#a curious thing
One of the biggest things that makes Regina and Henry’s relationship so well done and believable is the stars behind it. Lana and Jared are fascinating to watch as actors as they play these roles together. They put so much of themselves into it and this dynamic couldn’t be what it is today without the chemistry and real life friendship they bring to the table.
But in addition to that, they also care about Regina and Henry as much as, if not more so than the fans. It’s not a storyline they take lightly and that sort of care translates beautifully into the show in a way that makes this relationship one of the really special ones.
