Before I start my article,I have to thank zanhar1 with her help for coming up with the perfect wording for the opening paragraph of my article.We are both fan of Once Upon A Time,and she has a passion for writing.Thank te for all your help zanhar1.I appreciate it più than words can say..

Every once in a while there comes a mostra so spellbinding and full of magic, humor, wickedness,hope,love and family, that it really touches one's heart. From the very first episode to the very last, Once Upon A Time delivered on each theme and then some. To create such an alluring mostra te need brilliant writers...

It's no secret on this club that I can't stand Victoria (I refuse to call her Rapunzel) AT ALL! The only good things I can say about her is that she's good looking, I like her accent, and the actress is very talented. However, as a villain, she was a total waste of time because she did little to nothing. She wasn't intimidating AT ALL and just felt like some brat trying to have control over everything but looks really awkward and unconvincing as a legit threat. She felt più like a silly...

This is another articolo inspired da a commento in the polls. I'm gonna start off with a little disclaimer; this articolo obviously isn't going to be CS friendly. If te know that te won't like what you're going to read please don't do that to yourself. However, in Scrivere it I am to be as tactful and respectful as possible because I do want CSers to be able to read this. If te ship CS feel free to read and post your own counter arguments. I am open to a respectful debate.

My biggest bone to pick with CS is that I do very much believe that it ruined o at least damaged both Hook and Emma as...

Awhile fa I went to a Once con and I wanted to briefly share my experience. I was blessed to spend a whole weekend at the con. più over it was the first convention I've ever attended, so it was a new experience.

When I first got there it was a bit confusing because the place it was held at was so big. But I found that pretty much all of the staff were really helpful and friendly. The first thing that happened was a welcome session with Michael and (I think) Gil. was an absolute joy he had so much dark humor I was dying lol. Some time later was the autograph session with those two actors. It...

I think with the latest episode, Page 23, we've finally completed an important arc. Over the summer I made an articolo about my speculations as to weather o not Regina hates herself as well as her ability to forgive herself (link). Now I finally get to type one to sort of avvolgere it up.

Since that last articolo it has been confirmed that Regina really did hate herself with a degree of intensity. That moment when the Arrow leads the Queen to a mirror was so emotional. How she stares at herself in the mirror, crying and saying no. And then her father softly saying, "oh, Regina." That had to be one...

I think that Tougher Than the Rest was a pretty solid and enjoyable episode. And with Robin coming back on the screen there have been a mix of opinions around the net. Personally I'm very excited for it.

I'm gonna get the negative out of the way first. The one thing I didn't like about this episode was that it seemed so rushed. For one I'm surprised that they left the wish realm so quickly, in one episode. I've noticed that lately Once has been action, action, action, and not enough plot. I do think that the wish verse should have been expanded on and used more. I mean there was a lot going...

Spoiler alert: This articolo contains spoilers for several seasons of Once Upon a Time. te have been warned.

The Reality of Heroes

After several seasons of Once Upon a Time I have come to the conclusion that being a hero isn't about being popular; it is instead about something more. I believe that it's about recognizing your responsibility, being accountable for your actions and, when te make a mistake, its about making the sacrifices necessary to set things right.

If the reality of being a hero is all about responsibility, accountability and sacrifice, then let’s begin da examining the actions...

“Regina, I have something te need to see.” David announced.

“David, I just got home from an alternate universe, can’t this wait?” Regina frowned.

David set a fair-sized cage upon the counter. “You bought me a pet snake?” Regina asked, knitting her brows quizzically. “A venomous one too…”

“It’s not just any poisonous snake.” David replied. “This one prefers to poison it’s victims with apples instead of fangs.”

Regina stared blankly for a few moments and then her eyes went wide, “she got herself turned into a serpent!?” She huffed, pinching the bridge of her...

Inspired da the who has a harder life poll, I decided to make another articolo on this (I'll also be utilizing some commenti from there). It kind of goes hand in hand with an older articolo I wrote; link so I'll kind of be bring up why I think she's still sympathetic as I believe these topics go hand in hand.

One più side note; despite the fonte of inspiration this articolo is going to be Regina focused and I won't be drawing too many comparisons to other characters for the sake of saying she has it harder because I think each character has his/her own struggles that were equally as difficult....

A lot of people seem to be really ripping into Regina because of last week's episode. I do admit there were some aspects that I have to agree with these people on but there are also quite a few places where I think people are being too hard on her. So I'm going to be playing a bit of Devil's advocate.
With that said; a good lot of the points and topics I'm going to discuss are things I've seen on tumblr.


Speeding Up Belle's Pregnancy

This is one of the main complaints I see over on tumblr.

First and foremost while the Queen comes from Regina I still believe there is a pretty decent line separating...

Mirrors have always been closely associated with Regina, even before her debut as a character in Once through her Disney counterpart. But just because she's now apart from that part of herself doesn't mean that the mirrors are any less symbolic. That detto I won't be talking much of her relationship with the magic mirror (aka Sidney) as my goal here is to address the symbolism of the mirrors.

Mirrors as Symbolism

The mirror thing started pretty early with Regina.



Back in season 1 Regina was probaby the character most seen in front of the mirror. And quite a number of times she would be holding...

Hey,

I know that I have been Scrivere 'The return home' and I'm working hard on a new chapter. But this idea got in my mind and I needed to write it. It's a what if? What if Regina had made someone believe that that someone was her daughter and the big sister of Henry. How would this change the once upon a time we all know? And who is this mysterious sister? And can Henry figure out who she is and find Emma to break the curse?

DISCLAIMER: Every character of once upon a time belongs to once upon a time. I wish I worked for them, but I don't. This is me being creative with the ideas they gave us...

Recently I was discussing with Katara and Audrey the situation with Zelena and Regina. The situation being that argument the pair have in Regina's office where Regina blames Zelena for Robin's death and Zelena gets angry at Regina for splitting herself. Naturally I had to take a stance on this an really I found that I was sympathetic to both characters.

The first point of interest is that Zelena is angry at Regina for going to Snow for consigli as opposed to her. It is my belief that Snow was simply there at the right place at the right time. Zelena simply wasn't there. In fact, if I remember...

So this is an articolo I could have sworn I typed ages fa but apparently did not. I found that out when I wanted to link people to it on coolsinger198's sondaggio lol. Coolsinger198 also made an articolo on this topic so if anyone is interested in hearing the opposing viewpoint I recommend the article; link She explains her opinions without insulting any character and that's always cool.

So I'll start da saying that I don't think it is 100% Gold's fault that Regina went to the dark side. I think there are other people who got her there and I do think that (naturally) it was her fault too. Not completely...

Like all other OUAT fans, I have recently been binge-watching the fourth and fifth seasons on Netflix. Season 6 can't come soon enough! As I was watching one of the later episodes of Season 4, "Heart of Gold", Regina detto a line to Rumple that I could not stand:

"You made me a monster! But I won't let te do the same to Emma."

She has also detto this line a couple of other times throughout the series.

I do admire Regina's character development. I really do. Having Friends who cared about her and Henry made her her best self. She has changed for the better, although maintaining her sass. ;)

However,...

The afternoon was clear and warm. Emma was jogging down a path through the sun-lit woods, her blonde hair tied back in a long ponytail. She wasn't thrilled about Hook coming along on a jog, but she had agreed to let him tag along. Emma was jogging in a tank superiore, in alto and shorts, but Hook was wearing his usual black layers. He was also sweating terribly.

"Swan. Swan, slow down," Hook panted, trying to keep up. "Let's give it rest, eh, love?"

But Emma kept up her pace, keeping her eyes firmly on the path ahead of her. "Here, drink some water," she said, giving him her bottle.

Hook took a swig of the bottled...

As with my last article; my conversations with Audreygrace inspired me to make this one. Tbh she practically co-authored this one lol--that detto I will again be using commenti from the mentioned conversations.

Regina is a woman who just seems to have such a hard time letting things go--from having a hard time forgiving those who wronged her to struggling to forgive herself.

As mentioned prior, Regina can hold a wicked grudge, I mean she cursed a town for 28 years because little Snow White had a hand in the death of her lover. But this grudge-holding isn't just limited to other people. In fact...

So all of the chatting I've been doing with Audreygrace had gotten me to thinking. Mostly about the psychology of our core characters and how they work with and compare to one another. I am particularly captured da Regina in comparison to Gold. They are so similar yet so different. And so I wanted to type up a little something about it. I'll be using bits and chunks of the aforementioned comments.

One way in which I found Regina and oro to be very similar is how they both started off as good people and then slowly became corrupt out of desperateness. They were both put in very trying situations...

"Please don't hurt me!" Smee begged.

Rumpelstiltskin was coming towards him, grinning like the evil coccodrillo that he was. There was nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide. Smee was trapped and scared, having been running through the woods for hours; Rumpelstiltskin hot on his tracks. Now the chubby sailor found himself backed into corner with nowhere else to go.

Rumpelstiltskin giggled his stupid little giggle. He found Smee's panic to be very amusing. He stretched out his clawed fingers and went for the frightened man's throat.

"No! Please!" Smee covered his throat defensively and sank down to the...

Decided to type up an articolo mostly because I'm curious about the new gif feature lol. But also because I particularly enjoy the outcome of the finale.

The outcome that I speak of is the use of the serum on Regina. The fandom (based on what I've seen in the tag on tumblr) seems to be very mixed on this one. One party thinks it'll be a really neat way to have Regina face herself in such a way and the other thinks that it's very damaging to Regina's character to have she and the Queen be seen as separate entities.

With that said, I wish to present some pros and cons of both;

Pros

Opportunity
