I like how people who watch Xena just go with it, like:
Xena accidentally creates the first Kite? Awh yeah!
Random new zealand accents? Cool bro
Physics defying battle scenes and moves? Gimme’ some of that!
Get knocked out and dream about living under the sea with
hybrid babies? Bring it.
Xena accidentally creates Stonehenge? Yeah buddy! I can dig it
Musical episodes? FUCK. YEAH.
Then you get to Friend In Need and fandom is just like; AWH HELL NO.
LOOK AT HIM DAMMNIT!
Emma: And then it turned out my boyfriend was really an evil monkey in disguise!
Regina: *time slows down*
Regina: *enters mind palace*
Thousands upon thousands of mental laborers are hard at work, preparing the snark Regina needs to navigate the town of Storybrooke with her sanity intact.
Suddenly, the foreman bursts out of his office. “Our workload just quadrupled! Full power to the engines! All vacations are canceled! Let’s MOVE MOVE MOVE!”
Working at full capacity, Regina’s mind palace can produce a bitchy one-liner every .0434 seconds. But working overtime, that is cut to an astounding .006 seconds.
Back in the real world, Regina’s jaw unhinges.
That was one interesting word choice from Emma to describe Hook in 3.12.
I know, I know 99.99% says Neal is the one dying and I am probably just seeing what I want to and ascribe meaning to something that is not there but still, wouldn’t it be nice to end up surprised?If they wouldn’t just repeat what they did with Neal in the last finale only this time for real…
I thought it was an odd word choice too. Hook dying would actually be a surprise.
|Emma:||Mmm better not.|
|Regina:||doo doo doot, gonna bury my heart.|
|Monkey:||Gonna fuck some shit up lol.|
|Robin:||Oh babe alert better save her.|
|REGINA:||Thx lol jk. Fuck off. *damn he does have a nice ass though*|
|Robin:||Fine then fuck you too. *damn she's got a nice ass*|
|Hook:||lol drink this potion, I swear it's not a roofie.|
|Emma:||I think it's a roofie...police!|
|Emma:||...It wasn't a roofie. Gimmi.|
|Emma:||I remember. Henry, Henry,Regina, Regina, Regina, Henry ...other people too I guess?|
|Emma:||Love you Walsh, can't marry you though. Srry.|
|Walsh:||Oh Emma, if only there was someone who loved you.|
|Walsh:||lol, you fucked a monkey.|
|Emma:||*kills Walsh* Let's go.|
|Everyone:||We're back in Storybrooke. #Hella|
|Wicked Witch:||Gowna fuck sum shit up lol. *insert wicked pun*|
|*Dramatic music fade out*|
So not surprizingly Snow finds it easier to let go of Emma (she’s experienced) that to let go of David. With a guy you can have a do-over anytime. So n wonder when Emma lost Neal she was all “she just lost her lover how dare you suggest she find another guy” but when Regina lost Henry she’s all “Henry would want you to be happy” and “he’s kinda cute huh?”. No, no no a thousand times NO! You cannot replace the id and you cannot expect Regina to forget Henry and hook up with a guy and make babies or raise his children just to forget about her son.
And here we see Snow’s inexperience at beng a parent and what it actually means to be a parent. The child takes priority over everything and you are not expected to recover so fast.
Parents don’t get over being separated from their kids like Snow. It’s not normal. I saw people care for their pets more than Snow cares for Emma or the fact that she let go of Emma. Ugh. No. Stop pushing Regina towards a guy - it doesn’t work that way Snow and it’s getting disgusting really! Allow the woman to mourn and slowly recover don’t just push her at a man ffs. She lost a kid not a puppy!
In 3x03 we see Regina having a chance to meet Robin Hood but choosing not to. She was married to the King (I don’t know what kind of stupidity pushed Tinker Bell to push Regina to that direction, like what outcome did she expect? To have Regina chased by the King and killed?). So the…
I’m a fan of Regina, I don’t ship her with any one (except Jefferson but he hasn’t even been on the show this season, and I started “shipping” them until last month). I can’t even say I ship her with happiness. I love the character, I’m here to see her development and if that leads her to a happily ever after ending with someone then ok, if it’s a happy ending with just her and her son then ok, if it leads her to redemption but a tragic end then ok (that’s a sad “ok” by the way). I’m a big Xena fan and I was alright with her end, because even though it was sad I thought it went well with her but I did hate the execution of it. In Spartacus all the heroes died, but they were beautiful endings. What I’m saying is that I am probably one of the few fans who isn’t opposed to a tragic end of my favorite character if it’s done well and if it fits the character. I don’t expect a single ending, there is more than one ending for Regina and they can all be wonderful endings. I think that is one of the beauties of her character (Going Home would have been a perfect series ending).
Now that I’ve said all that.
I agree with you the fact that the set up for OQ is poorly done, it’s the reason I am not on board with it completely or “fangirling” over their meeting. But I decided to just watch what they show me. I’m not giving them a chance or hating them before seeing their development, I’m simply going to see what happens. Maybe I end up liking OQ, maybe I don’t. If I like it then it’ll add things to look forward to on the show as a fan of Regina, if I don’t then I’ll still be a fan of Regina and look forward to everything else she has going on. It’s like I don’t like CS but I still enjoy Emma as a character.
"She knew she had a “soulmate” for sure & even had both the means -in both worlds- & the clue to find him. So far, so good? She was looking for her happy ending. So when she searched for it, she didn’t even give him a second thought & she went looking for a child.”
“b) she never lifted a finger to search for that man she was supposedly her “soulmate” in over 30 years?”
My first answer was that she didn’t look for him because this is something the writers just came up with this season LOL
But even so, even if this was something they would have had planned since season 1, even if it wasn’t with Robin Hood but with some other original character, Regina would have not looked for happiness with any man (soulmate or not) because she didn’t want to let go of Daniel. She clung to Daniel’s memory and her love for him the same way, and possibly for the same reason she held on to her anger. It wasn’t until Daniel told her (S2) to love again that she let him go. She let him go but that doesn’t mean she has fully let go of her love for him. She spent over 30 years loving him, it’s not going to be so easy to let that go. If the writers ignore that then I am going to be deeply disappointed.
