Regina the-five-year-old Mills

Anonymous sent: I would love to see Emma with a female love interest but... why Regina? By pretty much every standard she is an awful, petty and spiteful human being who is responsible for hundreds of of innocent deaths. ..One of the reasons by Outlaw Queen makes absolute no sense to me is that she executed his wife before Emma changed the past and still had as far as Robin knew and that sort of thing was so common for her she didn't even remember it. Emma and her have never had a singe non hostile interaction.

Dear Eugene,

I will defend Regina faster than I will defend myself. I don’t think you want to see that side of me. Trust me, it’s not pretty.

I will say this, though, in case you weren’t aware, there’s this really incredible thing that has existed ever since fictional stories were created called *drum roll*… A REDEMPTION ARC! Wow! Characters can have second chances! Characters can redeem themselves for shitty things they have done in the past! Wow! Such innovation!

I know, it seems almost too good to be true.

Eugene, we do agree on one very important thing. Outlaw Queen makes absolutely no sense.

However, I must ask you this, are you sure we’re watching the same show? Just to be clear, we are talking about Once Upon a Time, right?

They have never saved each other or anything. It’s not like Regina gave up her happy ending for Emma. Not at all. It’s not like that’s an actual canon thing that has happened.

Have a great day, Eugene.

It’s not like Emma knows Regina

Or believes in her

image


It’s not like they work as a team
image


Or make each other stronger
image

It’s not like Emma tells her to be careful
image

(Or like Regina looks as if it matters when she does)
image


It’s not like they protect each other
image


Or worry about each other 
image

image


Or smile at each other
image


Or trust each other with the life of their son

Why Regina? They know and understand each other. They trust each other and work well together. They have great chemistry (and sexual tension). There is a beautiful poetry to their story, both of Regina coming to love someone she wronged and of the savior saving the lost soul who needed it most. Their canon relationship has come incredibly far. And above all (at least for me), they make a family.

Because you can’t always choose who you fall in love with, but you can choose to forgive and allow love to to let you grow in the darkest part of your life. Because love is fucking scary no matter who you fall in love with.

Exactly. But can we also talk about how many other accepted canon pairings started out hating each other? You can’t imagine them getting together because of the hostility? Ahem.  

What’s that? I can’t hear you imageoverimage the soundimage of all that

image So when you say you can’t imagine two people who hate and/or dislike each other ever getting together… I just have to chuckle a bit. It probably has nothing to do with the fact that all those canon pairings are het. Nothing AT ALL. 

There’s a fine line between ‘I hate you’ and ‘I want to fuck you.’ That’s all I’m saying.

I feel like this looks extremely symbolic

Notice how they are both in the same position but Elsa’s reflection is on the “right” side

STOPPPPP

Notice how Elsa can still see the kingdom while all Hans can really see is himself

Notice how elsa’s reflection is filled with life and light, and hans’ reflection is filled with a cold barren wasteland

This is actually one of my new favorite descriptions of Hans.

In the original story, Hans was a mirror or something. So, his subtle reflections represent that in the movie. 

Reblog if you want a Black Widow movie.

Doctor Who tropes I enjoy, which you are free to dislike, but should really represent fairly:

  • Female characters who come in a range from tall to short, from insecure to confident, from afraid of commitment to unwavering loyal, who are clever in different ways and…

aunicorndumbass:

Can we “appreciate” the fact Regina is nervous about telling Emma that she needs help? She doesn’t sound irritated by the fact the she needs help. She isn’t afraid or angry that the only person that can help her is Emma. She is nervous. Fun fact, I like reading articles about body language and I found a quite interesting fact, which is; Twisted Hands (crossing both hands then clasping the palms together) : Expression of a complex personality. It may indicate a difficult emotional life. The way the palms are held together conveys a need to hide something. Right, she needs to hide her weaknesses.

Now my point is that I find this character development fantastic. Regina never wanted help from anyone and when she indeed needed help, she never told anyone and always manipulated to have what she wanted. But what she does here is simply telling Emma that she needs help, her help. She isn’t afraid because she knows for a fact that Emma will do anything that needs to be done in order to save their son. However, I think that she is nervous to ask Emma because since day one, she made sure that no one could ever see her weaknesses. Just remember what she said to Tinker Bell. "Yes. You were right. I was afraid. You said I could let go of the anger that was weighing me down and suddenly, I felt like without it I’d just float away. That anger was all I had. What would I be without it?" "Happy," "Weak." And it’s with those thoughts that she “evolved” in Storybrooke. And she knows, or thinks, that asking help will make her, in one way or another, vulnerable. The Regina from season 1, even 2, would NEVER have asked for help. Especially from Emma. There’s no room for pride here, just a woman who needs help and knows who can help her.

Now, I also noticed the development of Emma. It’s not a surprise that Emma never truly believed in herself nor in magic. Let alone HER magic. Nonetheless, there is a big development of that storyline since the beginning of the third season. It begins with Regina telling her that they should defeat Pan together, with their magic. (It’s also good to note that she didn’t asked her for help in the first place, she just told her that they should do it. Once again, I call that character development.) And Emma’s reaction is plain and simple. She WON’T do magic because she knows that magic has a price. But what happens when the situation becomes more clear with the lost boy? She IS conflicted. She knows that they shouldn’t let Regina take his heart, but she still allows Regina to do it. Because in the end, she knows that this is the best way to find Henry and she trusts Regina. When Regina teaches Emma magic, Emma doesn’t believe one bit in herself. There goes her coping mechanism again. "You’re such a pathetic waste of ability!" I know what you did there, Regina. This comment would have been quite hurtful if it wasn’t so encouraging. (Don’t forget that she also genuinely told her to lead them.) Because she acknowledges that Emma has it in her and that her magic might even be more powerful than hers. In a Regina Mills way, obviously. She also knows that Emma won’t trust herself and that the only way for her to make magic is by feeling anger, irritation, something that will infuriate the Saviour so much that she will literally sets something on fire. And that is why Regina isn’t hurt about the "monster" comment because it was what she was looking for. A strong reaction from Emma. See the little look Emma has when she sees her magic right in front of her? She is surprised. She didn’t think she would be able to do it, but she did and this is the first step in her path to believe in her magic. Now, finally, back in the dark hollow cave, when everything is falling apart and that there is no other way, she finds her strength in what Regina teached her. The only thing she thought about was Regina. Her anger for her, maybe, what she told her, who knows? But I don’t think that the fact the she only says “Regina.” right after that is insignificant. I think that she only realises in that moment that Regina did teached her something. That Regina did something RIGHT. And that she knew what she was doing by making her angry.

What I read into it is that both of them aren’t sure of their own strength. Regina knows that she is powerful but her fear of rejection, her fear of what her magic has done in the past stops her from using it with all of its magnificence. As for Emma, she is loved and knows that everyone believes in her. The only problem is that she doesn’t. She doesn’t feel like a saviour, she doesn’t feel like she has this power in her.  What is interesting, though, is how they always manage to find unintentionally strength in each other. With the hat, with the trigger, with how their love for Henry ALWAYS comes first, with the way they understand each other - even if they’re not really conscious of it yet - Again, isn’t that reflecting of their dynamic? Two sides of the same coin. It think this one scene will be a major development for both of them, wether you ship them or not.

Okay, I just realized Voldemort didn’t just plan to kill Harry in Book 4 →

In all other cases except the Triwizard cup, portkeys only go one way at one specific time. Touching them again does not activate them to return to their place of origin. Also, when Harry grabs the cup a second time, it does not return him to the middle of the maze. It takes him…
