Can we talk about the character development here for a second???
These two have tried to kill each other in the past, and now they are sitting in Regina’s kitchen, having a heart to heart, where they both find common ground and admit where things were right and wrong.  This wasn’t just some false getting along for everyone else’s sake, this was real fucking emotional stuff happening between them.
But the best part is the apples.  Snow is sitting next to a basket of apples, a presumably apple pie, and even holding an apple in her hands!  She never once looks at them as a threat.  In fact, she is playing with the apple in her hands as if it is comforting to her.  And this is all happening in Regina’s kitchen, three feet away from Regina!  Snow no longer feels threatened by her.  She feels comfortable bringing up really touchy topics and holding apples because she knows Regina won’t harm her even is she is still rightfully upset with her.
A lot of things annoy me in this show, but the massive development between them that has taken place from season one is not one of those things.  I only wish we got to see more of these interactions.

I love the way Nicki encourages people with education. I’ve seen her ask about report cards on Twitter and tell young people to bring their C’s up to B’s and B’s up to A’s. And this quote is too This is beautiful I love to see Black women lifting each other up and encouraging one another. I hope everyone that says she is a bad role model gets to see this

THIS IS SHIPPING REGINA WITH HAPPINESS.
Her family. They make her happy.
She doesn’t need a new family. She already has them.

Thank you.

onceuponatime-confessions:

I loved watching Regina become part of the family. It’s a beautiful sight to behold.”

Nice for her how it happens without her having to regret anything or apologize.  I love how realistic it is.  She’s literally sitting with three people she’s tried to kill and one person she did.

I would have loved this as a closing scene for the series, after Regina and Snow had a good conversation with Regina asking Snow to forgive her, and them working on their relationship.  This scene would have meant so much if it had been worked for.  

To Henry, though, this is him with his mom and three of her friends.  

"This scene would have meant so much if it had been worked for."

So…

  • Saving Mary Margaret and Emma
  • Saving the town
  • Becoming an ally
  • Keeping Emma’s heart from growing dark
  • Saving Henry
  • Getting everyone safely home
  • Stopping a curse
  • Giving happy memories to Emma and Henry 
  • Saving Roland
  • Teaching Emma
  • Respecting Henry’s memory loss
  • Protecting the entire Charming family, specifically the unborn baby
  • Teaching Emma magic
  • Admitting Emma’s strength
  • Encouraging the Savior to see her potential
  • Joining and fighting with good now

Doesn’t count towards anything- doesn’t count as “work” because Regina didn’t say the word "sorry"? Have you heard the expression "Actions speak louder than words"? Because ACTIVELY-

  • Regina is redeeming herself.
  • She is making dramatic strides towards good.
  • She is saving lives, literally and on more than one occasion.
  • She is actively protecting the family she once sought to destroy.
  • She is allying with them.
  • Fighting with them.
  • Protecting them.
  • She is being unselfish.
  • Thinking of Henry and their entire family first.
  • Putting the safety of an unborn child as a priority. 

This doesn’t need to be debated. I can’t see an argument about this, honestly. I’m trying to get you to see what you’re saying here. You are fixated on a single word. “Sorry” Mary Margaret, David, Emma, Henry… they are not worried about hearing her claim to be apologetic, especially when honesty isn’t her best quality. They are wanting her to be a better person. And she is. She is being an amazing person. She has come so far and while the word sorry may hold deep meaning to you, it does not seem to be the case with the characters she has wronged. They want her to be better. She is. She earned that moment hands down, no arguments.

can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal

Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode? 
It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.
Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.
Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.
Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.
Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.
The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.
The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.

Evolution

If we look at the first and last episodes of OUAT through the seasons, there’s always a shift in Emma and Regina’s relationship. 

S1: Enemies to tentative allies

S2: Tentative allies to reluctant co-parents

S3: Reluctant co-parents to friends

What’s interesting is that this shift in their dynamic is always, always accompanied by an act of magic that they have to perform together. In S1, it was the two of them saving Henry, in S2 it was saving the town together, and in S3, I think it will be the two of them working to reverse Zelena’s curse.  

I think the development we’re being given is akin to the development of a lot of TV couples—there are so many examples of couples who have butted heads but have later on become friends, allies, and then lovers. I can’t imagine that they’ll spend so much time letting Emma and Regina go through this natural evolution if their relationship wasn’t worth much. It’s not just because of the fact that they’re Henry’s moms—their magic has allowed them to do a lot of amazing things, too, like open a portal back to the Enchanted Forest, save Storybrooke from its own destruction, and heck, even create an eclipse. True Love creates magic. That’s what we have here. 

The show began with the premise of an Evil Queen, a Savior, and a son they shared, and I think that by the end of the series, they will be one family. This is one to watch.

Q

Anonymous asked:

Eddy never said SQ was unintentional at the panel. That was entirely made up by a fan and a random media article. Adam did say on twitter that they didn't intend for Emma/Regina to be a couple but SPECIFIED that was only in regards to S1+S2 (which is true, they weren't a canon romantic couple at that point). He did say the subtext is open to interpretation, and has said that anything can happen in the future.

Now that’s information that needs to be spread throughout the fandom. I’m seeing a few too many responses to the SQ survey from people saying that the writers have made it clear that SQ will never happen, when I thought that they definitely hadn’t said anything of the sort. Thank you, anon.
