When the way they say the line is completely wrong
and the HP fandom never forgave and it never forgot
seems that you and i; our paths were e n t w i n e d from the very start.
You know, it’s funny. People are saying they want OUAT to be about fairy tales and not about the ships?
You remember that 90% of fairy tales are about falling in love and getting your happy-ever-after, right?
I disagree. Pick up a copy of Grimms’ Fairy Tales. You’ll find that much less than 90% is about romantic love. Here is a page that has a list of 211 of Grimms’ Fairy Tales. Read the titles, not many will be romantic in nature. Nor are the stories.
Disney, however, and especially Disney after the 90s, the era you were probably raised in, has had romantic movies coming out year after year during the Disney renaissance. Starting with Ariel and Eric, we move on to Belle and Beast, Aladdin and Jasmine, Simba and Nala, Pocahontas and John Smith, Hercules and Megara, Mulan and Shang (like the only ones in this list that didn’t kiss/make out during the movie, but we all know it led to romance), Tarzan and Jane. End Disney’s renaissance.
And yes, there were other princess movies before that time. Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty. The end. Three princess movies. But think back to the non-romantic stories you must have seen as a child. Dumbo, Jungle Book, Alice in Wonderland, the Sword in the Stone, Pinocchio… Think of the movies after the Disney renaissance. The Emperor’s New Groove, Lilo and Stitch, Treasure Planet, Finding Nemo, Up… They weren’t about romantic love or ‘shipping’ either. They were about finding a happy ending, and they had another notion besides “You need a romantic partner to be happy.”
But yeah, no idea where I’m going with this. XD Just wanted to say that most fairy tales are not about finding true love. But those are the fairy tales that stick most with little girls. They’re also fairy tales that sell really well for Disney. They’re the stories that Adam and Eddy seem to love the most. They’re the inspiration for Once Upon a Time, more than the not-romantic Disney movies.
Anyway, I’d love to see more Fairy Tales and less ships, I guess. But knowing the creators I don’t think it’s gonna happen. They certainly do like their ships! I don’t think they want to play with much else.
"I have heard that Adam and Eddy also wanted Robert Carlyle to play on Lost! That’s so cool! I always love when Lost actors come to OUAT and we get some little hints and stuff like that. Bobby both on OUAT and Lost would have been perfect!! I wonder which character he would have played and why he refused, or did he refused at all, or what happened? It’s so exciting!"
From what I heard, they wanted him as Desmond.
you said it yourself, bitch. we’re the guardians of the galaxy.
Because I’m pretty sure that every minute of every day, you’ve been stuck in a lab right beside me. At the academy, at sci-ops, this plane… You’ve been beside me the whole damn time!
Just a heads up…since people are still tagging major episode spoilers simply as “ouat spoilers” instead of some indication that they’re MAJOR spoilers (e.g. “ouat major spoilers”) and I’ve already been spoiled on more than I wanted to know, I’m now blacklisting ALL spoilers.
Please don’t send me any asks with details about the episode. I love spoilers and I’m sad that I can’t participate in any of the awesome filming spoilers coming up this week. But I don’t want the whole premiere episode ruined.
I’m still sort of mad they had a “pre-premiere” and showed the whole episode. I’m glad for all the nice pictures of the cast, but this is ruining the whole episode for me.
I agree. Going in the Rumbelle tag for pictures and finding spoilers there isn’t that fun either.
At least I don’t visit other tags, but since Rumbelle is my OTP, it’s kind of normal to want to go in the tag. And now I know all that’s going to happen cause if people post big titles with the plot in it…. Well… I can’t read over that.
Ah well, can’t blame them either, because they do tag it “ouat spoilers”, but I’m at work and don’t have all the add-ons installed to blacklist stuff here.
"They’ll be granted immunity! You will personally pledge this in front of the entire population of District Thirteen and the remainder of Twelve. Soon. Today. It will be recorded for future generations. You will hold yourself and your government responsible for their safety, or you’ll find yourself another Mockingjay!"
What is love?
