//I’m almost sorry because this turned into a massive rant. But I’m not.//
As a Hook fan myself—and yes, to an extent, this even includes the neutered and watered-down version I don’t think does him justice; being a fan of a character doesn’t mean you can’t note their flaws and the fallacies in…
lunatiger asked: What OUAT has taught me…. 1) Being a good person will get me killed or screw over 2) Do not believe in hope 3) You only get second chances if you murdered, raped, and killed 4) Take up heavy drinking while watching an episode. 5) Lust and Obsession = “True Love” 6) You get a massive screen time if you wear guy liner 7) You don’t have to acknowledge your crimes, they’re already forgiven and forgotten. Thanks for the life lessons OUAT… *Takes shotgun out*
Anonymous asked: Lessons OUAT has taught me: redemption only works if you have a lot to redeem yourself of. So go out there and kill and torture innocent people and then fall in love with a good person so you'll be redeemed. On that note, your sex life will become instantly boring and/or taboo when your redemption kicks in, so make sure to get busy when you're still evil, either with fellow villains or, even better, unwilling victims! If you're a male villain on the rocky road to redemption,
but have never sexually assaulted anyone/made creepy rape jokes and are in a consensual monogamous relationship, you may think you are safe from being a victim of sexual assault. Unfortunately, not only is this not true, but an outside observer might doubt you’ve ever had sex with your consenting S.O., and think you’ve had more sexual interaction with a woman who controls you against your will than with your true love. If you’re emotionally stunted from pursuing a 300+ year revenge quest, 3/4 never fear! Simply follow your new object of obsession, watch her when she’s with other people, undermine the confidence of her other love interest and fake an old friendship with him once he’s safely dead, help fix the problems you caused in the first place, and don’t take no for an answer until she takes pity on you and stops “making you work so hard for her attention.” If you’re a good person who made one mistake, I have some bad news: you’re going to die, and even though death had a revolving door installed for this show, you’re going to be gone, and forgotten, for good after one episode. Your son will think you were a deadbeat and hang out with the guy your mom ran off with who later sold you to your crazy relative because you didn’t want to play happy families with him, and your old girlfriend who you wanted to marry is going to marry him instead, without ever mentioning you again. Your father will miss you when it furthers his manpain, though. Congratulations.
I second that drink….
I know I was all aboard the Baby Emperor/Seung Nyang train for so long but you guys, tell me this isn’t adorable. I really wish they’d gotten some family time in (where, you know, they actually knew that Maha is their son).
Also, who gave Joo Jin Mo a child to hold? Do you want my heart to explode?
OMG this is too freakin adorable! This was the family scene I wanted in the show!!!
Writers you suck!!!
Anonymous asked: What is Once Upon a Time even about anymore?
Who the fuck knows at this point.
“I’ve been in love with my best friend’s girl for years but I always respected their relationship. My friend died a year ago in a car accident and to this day, even if she’s my best friend and the closest person to me, I can’t start courting her because I know she’s still hurt and I don’t want to disrespect the memory of my friend. So I can’t understand how Hook is already flirting with Emma. He doesn’t really love her. That’s not what you do when you love a woman. It’s all wrong.”
I love this post, but I can just hear all the apologist for Hook now…
geekykitty asked: what gets me is Hook keeps pursuing Emma, spies on her, acts super creepy. Yet, Neal's the jerk because he asked her to lunch, never stalked her, was afraid to approach her because he did a jerk move that he admitted to, even gave her needed space when she needed it and she always initiated the hugs with him yet he's the bad guy? He's the jerk and abandoned emma?
Can you taste the hypocrisy and apologism? Because I definitely can.
Bless this post….
Neal will always be 100x the man Hook is
okay here’s the thing. i don’t have a problem with a show portraying characters that fuck up. i don’t have a problems with a show portraying a character that’s violent, or lacks remorse, or is vengeful. i don’t have a problem with redemption arcs of those characters. those can be good, wonderful,…
