Hiatus Struggles: Once Upon a Time, a great show was on Sunday nights…

All the new promos and pictures, are really making me miss Once Upon a Time. This hiatus is too long especially with that incredible winter finale. I wish the had aired Once Upon a Time in Wonderland during this break. I feel like it may have helped the ratings. Anyway, I’m so curious as to what’s going to happen. I really can’t wait any longer.

As we know, Emma and Henry are currently living in NYC with no recollection of their time in Storybrooke. Although they may seem to be happy now, their pasts, especially Henry’s are a lie. Henry has a completely new life. Looking at the promos, it doesn’t seem like Henry and Emma will be in NYC for too long. If they gain their memories too quickly, it seems a but like a waste of a plot. You can only really do this once, so I hope they take advantage of the story as long as they can.

I think it would be interesting if Emma is the one who believes first this time. Emma still has the pain from her past with her. She was abandoned by her family and Neal. Henry, on the other hand, has no memory of his past. His mother didn’t give him up and he lives a happy life in NYC. Emma may have to convince Henry to believe. He’s living a happy life and doesn’t need to look to fairytales to give him hope. He already has his happy ending with his mom even though he doesn’t realize it’s not all real.

I feel like they sent Hook to Emma because Emma already knew Neal. She’s still mad at him for what he did to her and that pain did not go away with the curse. The fact that Hook seems like a stranger but knows so much about her might help his chances at convincing her. Neal already knows her so this wouldn’t help and Emma still feels betrayed. I wonder what Emma has told Henry about Neal. She told him he died previously. Will she make that same mistake again or will she have unknowingly learned from her previous mistake? I’m interested in what they will do.

Also, I’m curious how Emma will react to her new sister and how Henry will react to Regina. Henry now literally will have the memories of two childhoods, that with Emma and Regina. I’m interested with how they will cope with their new reality and the fact that their happy ending wasn’t real. So many emotions.

So, we have the Wicked Witch of the West this season. I have heard rumors and will be very annoyed if the witch is in fact Rumple and Cora’s kid. I’m hoping more for Cora’s sister or a child other than Rumple’s. Rumple is probably my favorite character and Cora my least. I really didn’t like them together and I can’t explain how mad I will be if that is true.

There’s my slight rant for today.

Have a magical day folks!

FairyTale Story of my Life

In honor of the Josh Dallas Once Direction tweet about the song “Fairytale Story of my Life”, I decided to write some lyrics for the song and this is the result

 

“FairyTale Story Of My Life”
By: Once Direction

Written in this book are the stories that most can’t explain
I believe it with my heart but nothing ever seems to change
She tells me every morning she don’t feel the same about my silly book
Seems to me that when I die this curse will never be broken

And I’ll be gone, gone tonight
The Evil Queen won’t let me out of her sight
The way she’s been holding on too tight
With nothing in between

The story of my life
I find her home
I strive all night to make her believe
And time… is frozen (the story of, the story of)
The story of my life
She gives me hope
I make her believe
Until it’s broke
Inside
The fairytale story of my life (the story of, the story of)

Written on these walls are the beliefs that I can’t change
Leave my heart open but everyone thinks I’m crazy
I know that someday time will no longer be still
Although it’s not broken, my heart knows it will

And I’ll be gone, gone tonight
The Evil Queen is beginning to fright
Since magic always comes with a price
With nothing in between

The story of my life
I find her home
I strive all night to make her believe
And time… is frozen (the story of, the story of)
The story of my life
She gives me hope
I make her believe
Until it’s broke
Inside
The fairytale story of my life (the story of, the story of)

And I been waiting for this time to come around
But trying to make you believe is like chasing the clouds

The story of my life
I find her home
I strive all night to make her believe
And time… is frozen (the story of, the story of)
The story of my life
She gives me hope
I’ll make her believe
Until it’s broke
Inside
The fairytale story of my life (the story of, the story of)

The story of my life
The story of my life (the story of, the story of)
The fairytale story of my life

Hiatus Struggles

Hello.

So, Once Upon a Time is still on hiatus. The more spoilers that keep coming out, the more I want to see the rest of the season. Now, I’m a little more nervous knowing that one of the main characters is going to die. The reality is that I love all of the characters and I really can’t imagine how the show will function with them being gone for good. I’m still in denial about Graham and I miss August. I have a feeling on who it’s going to be, but I don’t want to jinx anything. I just know it will end with me in tears. Okay, probably not literal tears, but I’ll be pretty sad. I’m interested in knowing if any of you have any predictions or who you hope it is since those can be two very different things.

We also found out that Ginny’s pregnancy will be written into the show. I’m not sure how I feel about it. I’m sort of indifferent right now. I can’t imagine how Emma will take it when she eventually finds her parents. I don’t think I’ll have a good opinion until they show comes back.

Okay, so many people are wondering why Hook came instead of Neal. I don’t think this has anything to do with who her true love is, but more the fact that Emma has no notion of Storybrooke. We all saw how Emma reacted to Neal in Manhattan. She didn’t take it too well. I feel like she would be more apt to believe a total stranger about the whole fairytale thing than the guy who broke her heart. Hook has no family in Fairytale Land so it would be the easiest for him to just leave as well. He has no one waiting for his return and no one who would really care if he didn’t. I’m not sure who I ship Emma with. I respect all three of the ships, but I feel like the Hook decision doesn’t relate to any ship but the reasons above.

I have no idea what to expect from the second half of season 3. The winter finale seemed like a season finale. They’re are so many directions to go and I can’t wait to watch. That’s all for now folks.

Have a magical day!

Once Upon a Time, it began snowing paper snowflakes in Storybrooke.

 

Oh my gosh it’s snowing.

So, today I was bored and decided to make some paper snowflakes for my mom to decorate her desk at work. After making some for her, I was inspired to make some Once Upon a Time inspired snowflakes. I wanted to make one for all the ships/characters on Once, but I was running out of ideas and my fingers began to hurt. These are the results:

Image

This is my snowing inspired snowflake. I added a heart to represent their love and I mean it’s Snow so you can’t get much more literal than a snowflake.

Image

Captain Hook’s snowflake.

Image

The Emma Swan snowflake

Image

The Rumbelle Snowflake!

Image

And last, but definitely not least, the Evil Queen snowflake!

I had a lot of fun making these and I really wish I could have made more. I might try and tweet them to the actors during Once since I’m proud how a few of them came out. We’ll see.

These are all my pictures/snowflakes so please don’t steal them.

Have a magical day!

The Good, the Bad, and the Ships

Why can’t we be friends?

As you all can probably tell, I am a huge Once Upon a Time fan. I love the concept, the actors, and the storylines. Only a few of my friends are Once Upon a Time fans so I took to twitter to find some other fans to talk to. I love hearing different perspectives on the show and predictions on what’s going to happen. I’ve met some pretty cool people so far, however, I’ve also witnessed certain things in the fandom that frustrate me. Most of this frustration has to do with ships.

While the majority of the fandom seem like absolutely amazing people, there are some who frustrate me. I understand that we all ship different people on the show and several of these ships overlap. The isn’t Big Love, so not all of the ships can happen or at least stay together forever. What I don’t understand is how some people can make such rash decisions on people solely based on who they ship. Even if they support the opposite ship as you, that doesn’t mean you should automatically hate them. Just because they ship Swan Queen or Captain Swan, doesn’t make them a bad person. It doesn’t make them stupid or unintelligent. They just feel more connected or more invested in a different ship. Please don’t attack or judge people based on their ship, just like you shouldn’t judge people based on their race, gender, or orientation. Their ship doesn’t define who they are or how they act as a person. I’ve met so many awesome people from so many different ships and I feel some people don’t understand what their missing.

I totally know that not everyone in the fandom is nice. They’re are rude people who ships you hate, but there are also rude people who ship you like. Rude people are not confined to one ship. They exist in all, just like good people too. I just feel like some people are blinded by their ship. They just have this stereotype that the opposing ship is the enemy and shouldn’t like them. They think that if their fan base gets too large, they will have more of an effect on the writers or they just flat out think their fan base is better. This isn’t cool and it’s not how people should think. I can understand the reasoning for wanting your ship to beat the others, but the writers are going to write what they want no matter what everyone else thinks. Please don’t harass Adam or Jane or any of the other writers. This is their show and their vision. They have complete control over what they want to see come to life and they deserve that for giving us this show to watch. Without them, we wouldn’t have this show or these ships whether they come to light or not. We should be thanking them. They have a plan for what to come. We only see one episode a week, but they have the whole story planned out. It must be frustrating for them to know what happens and see us freaking out every week. We may think we know what will happen, but only they do. There is a plan and we just have to trust them. Not everyone will be happy. That’s life. Just thank the writers for what we have and don’t harass them.

I don’t think there is any best ship on Once Upon a Time. Even though it is a show about fairy tales, everyone can’t their happily ever after. Then, there would be no show. You need conflict and problems. Emma and Regina’s love lives are both crucial to the show. It’s so unpredictable. Everyone wants someone different for them. It makes the show suspenseful and makes you want to keep watching to see what will happen next. Every few episodes, you get your ship moment that makes you so happy and you keep waiting for the next one. This is what draws you to the show; the constant anticipation and excitement over what will happen with your ship. You need bad things to happen because it will make you so much happier when something good happens.

I just don’t tolerate hate towards innocent people. I don’t judge any ship. I only look down on people who are rude to me or other defenseless people. If you ship Captain Swan or Swanfire or Swan Queen or Rumbelle or Snowing or Outlaw Queen or any other ship on Once Upon a Time, I’d love to talk to you. It doesn’t matter who you ship, I just want to talk to people about my favorite show. I’d like to know why you ship who you ship and why you hate you hate. I want to know what you like about the show and what you don’t like about the show. I want to debate or what should/will happen in the future. I don’t care who you ship. If you are a nice person, I will be nice to you as well. Obviously, it doesn’t mean we’re going to be best friends, but it doesn’t mean we are destined to hate each other as well if we don’t ship the same things. I shouldn’t have to be afraid to post who I ship on twitter because I’m afraid people won’t like me for it. That’s just wrong and it shouldn’t happen. People can be so cruel and it really hurts me to see that.

Please know that I do understand the pain and frustration that happen with ships. I have been hurt by shows in the past that have gone in a direction I was hoping they weren’t. I have been mad and sad, yet have never taken my anger out on others. I strive to not be rude to those who ship what I don’t. I try to be happy for them and adapt to what I have been given. I have no control over a show. All I can do is choose to watch it and follow along. I enjoy watching and tweeting along with others to convey my thoughts and feelings and hear theirs as well. All I want are friends to talk about the show with who won’t judge me based on who I ship.

All in all, you can hate the ship, but please don’t hate the shipper.
Have a magical day folks.

Music is Coming… Once Upon a Time style

Hi folks. Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been and still am studying for finals. I usually listen to music while studying and I can up with an interesting idea for a possible post in the future. I want to relate song lyrics to Once Upon a Time. I have a few lyrics right now. My question for you all is if you have any songs that remind you of Once Upon a Time and why. I’ll add them on to my next post. I love music and Once Upon a Time so why not combine both?

If you have any songs/lyrics either respond in the comments or tweet me at @OnceUponNCIS

Have a magical day!

Spoilers or No Spoilers?

Tonight’s Once Upon a Time has been advertised as the conclusion of the Neverland arc. While it can be assumed that the gang will find a way to save Henry, the real question is where do they go from there? Will the gang head back to Storybrooke or try to find a way back to the Enchanted Forest? How will we ever know?

Well, some of us already know some of the answers of what to come due to spoilers. There are pictures, hints, videos, and other media out there that gives us a glimpse of what to come in the show.  I know some people live for spoilers and sneak peaks. It’s hard to have a to wait a week or at times months to find out what’s going to happen next. You’re always left with cliffhangers that involve your favorite characters. Sometimes it’s a life or death situation and other times you’re left wondering whether your ship will finally get together or not.

Spoilers do as they’re name says and spoil the show. Sometimes they can give us relief that our beloved character has not died and other times we find out our favorite characters do get together. Other times, we find out the complete opposite and just become upset and angry. The thing with spoilers though is sometimes they can be wrong and more often taken in the wrong context. People shouldn’t be upset with something that hasn’t happened yet since you don’t know the context. Pictures may be worth a 1000 words but that actions speak louder than words. You need to see the whole picture and exactly what the show has in store.

I personally try to avoid spoilers. I want to be as surprised as possible and fully experience the show. I like to try to predicate what will happen myself without any outside help. Also, I want to go into the episode blind and have no lingering feelings about what I expect to happen. I don’t want to be disappointed if something I thought was going to happen didn’t. Also, I feel like I would be more happy to see something I hoping to happen if I didn’t already know. I would, however, probably want to know if my favorite character was going to die before, but I still think it would be better if I didn’t to fully appreciate the episode. I have nothing against people who love spoilers. I know they would definitely help alleviate my anxiety and probably make me feel better. I just don’t want to assume something will happen that won’t.

So those are my opinions on spoilers. What do you all think of them? Are you a spoiler fan? Why do you enjoy them?

Have a magical day folks and enjoy tonight’s episode.
