"Home" means two things to Henry and neither is with him. They’ll get to him soon, though, right? Before anything else can?
Please join the Virtual Series and the Nevengers for Season 3, Episode 4, “Home Sweet Home” at ouatvs.com this coming Friday, September 5.
(Take you very much for the beautiful artwork from boomboombooom!)
'I should have kissed her'
This September winter comes early
I LOVE the fact that Regina is dressed as the evil queen! I mean, what were they doing? xD
In an act of desperation, Regina enacts a spell that takes her back to the day Henry leaves for Boston. Regina wants to keep the Savior from ever entering Storybrooke, but when she takes her son’s place, she finds herself unprepared for who exactly she encounters.
(Still awesome as ever! Go (re)read it :D)
i kinda want a remix of this or of the other long looks with an animated timer counting up, up and away past 6 seconds.
Almost 6 seconds, but not quite:
The mine scene however, (Sorry about the size, I just couldn’t get it under 2MB at the above size):
re-reblogging because Tumblr is a magical place where things happen. and outlivealie is a magical homo sapien.
That’s not a “please have my babies” look, that a “you idiot, how do you not know you’re going to have my babies yet” look.
Regina x Pongo
When “Broken” first aired, I assumed (as I believe the audience was supposed to) that Emma was able to jumpstart Regina’s magic because she was the Savior/child of True Love/etc. And, as such, I assumed that Regina thought the same.
Except, she’s surprised that Emma has magic in “The Cricket Game”. She had no idea that Emma could use magic, and between the episodes there is no indication to Regina that Emma was able to do anything magical (e.g., she doesn’t know about Cora trying for her heart).
So when Emma says she can use magic, she’s shocked. And you can see when it clicks that it’s because she’s the Savior. Only, this implies that she’d come to another conclusion about how she was able to get the hat to work in “Broken”. A conclusion that has nothing to do with Emma being the Savior, but rather Emma being Emma.
This means that Regina had assumed that her magic was kickstarted solely by Emma touching her.
And, as we all know by now (as does Regina), magic is emotion. So Regina had not only assumed that Emma’s touch had brought about her own magic, but she had accepted that Emma’s touch brought forth emotion strong enough to power a damn portal.
And the only magic she knew powerful enough to create a portal would have been … True Love.
So she thought Emma *loved* her. And since the magic can only work if both are in love, Regina spent the first several episodes of season 2 wondering how she could have not known what her own feelings toward Emma were.
How could I miss being in love? I lost so much of myself that I don’t know my own heart anymore? I want to know love again. And then Emma smiles at her when she comes back through the portal, invites her to the celebration. She’s excited, she’s pleased, and she’s feeling the love.
Only to have Emma level charges of Archie’s murder on her. She asks her, straight out, you know me, you know my feelings, you know I have no motive to do this, because it would change how you feel about me, and I am not willing to endanger that. So when Emma lets her go, over her parents’ objections, Regina thinks she has a chance.
She sees Emma on her doorstep, but Charming and Snow are there, and her defense is snark. And then it’s revealed that Emma has her own magic. Elementally. Regina’s belief that Emma’s actions (saving her from the mob and the wraith) and starting the portal were caused out of love for her is shattered. Fact she’s faced with: Emma’s magic simply started up Regina’s like a car battery with jumper cables. Emma has no feelings for her, believes she did kill Archie, and is now party to tricking Regina into a magic trap…
No clue how to defend herself when no one will listen to her, Regina poofs away, hides, devastated.
And THAT is the condition Cora found her. Broken, not actually by Cora’s manipulations, but rather broken because Regina had lost the people she thought loved and supported her, as she had come to realize she loved them: Emma AND Henry. This is why, when she realizes it was Cora who set her up, Regina demands they seek out “Emma, Henry, and the two idiots” because her primary goal becomes to get back Emma and Henry’s love and trust by showing them proof/truth (“see I *didn’t* do this”) to win it back.
SWAN MILLS FAMILY IS THE CORE OF THIS FUCKING SHOW.
EVERYTHING comes back to Emma, Henry, and Regina, and how they interact with one another. And it always will. No other relationships will ever come close. Even Snow Queen is a paltry relationship compared to the vibrant layers of the triad that is Regina/Henry/Emma.
IMHO. Full stop.
'So she thought Emma *loved* her. And since the magic can only work if both are in love, Regina spent the first several episodes of season 2 wondering how she could have not known what her own feelings toward Emma were.'
Hence why the day after Emma fell through the portal, Regina wore the SQ shirt and she changed her ring to the opposite hand. It was when Emma falsely betrayed her, it went back.
I don’t care what anyone thinks about this ring. This ring was Lana’s conscience decision to symbolise Regina’s personal change.
Swan Mills Family IS the core of Regina’s resilient honey crisp apple. This show needs to get back on the SMF track to survive. That’s why it was a bloody disgrace that they sidelined Regina and Henry in the TWO HOUR LONG finale and writing Emma to not take Regina’s feeling into consideration by wanting to take Henry back to NY, was just fucking ridiculous.
I love the logic and critical analysis here. Especially how Regina wore the shirt and changed her ring hand. Especially that.
Because that all changes once again when Emma betrays her.
Regina has clearly been fighting dealing with feelings for Emma for a hell of a long time.
Davis will have a major recurring arc in season 11 as a surgeon at the hospital previously known as Seattle Grace. Making her debut in Grey’s Anatomy’s season 11 premiere, “I Must Have Lost It on the Wind.”
YEEES! I love her *-*
Swan Queen + magic hand.
Go big or go home
So I tried to recreate this, because I knew the responses would be different, and consequently realized that it’s either extremely old or faked, as Cleverbot auto-capitalizes and auto-punctuates your sentences for you if you do not. Oh well.
In light of that fact, here’s my go at cybersexing Cleverbot.
So I decided to try it
alrighty, let’s go one more step
i’M ACTUALLY CRYING.
THAT ESCALATED QUICKLY
Story of my life
that’s a first.
I LAUGHED HARDER THEN I HOULD HAVE AND I WAS IN PUBLIC
I wasn’t gonna reblog this but I lost it at the last one
