Can we please acknowledge the irony of Hook telling Neal he’ll back off so Henry’s parents have a chance at being together when Hook is the man who Neal’s mom ran off with?
Yes, yes we can. He has a lot of nerve even spitting those words out.
I’m curious, have they even acknowledged how awkward this situation might be for Neal?
"Oh come on! First my mom and now my baby mama?! What the hell, bro?"
"IT’S ALL FOR HENRY’S SAKE. LOOK AT ME BEING SO NOBLE."
"Yeah…and when you ran off with my Mom, I was how old? Four?"
"….stop ruining my nobility….."
"Don’t need to try."
THE CHARMINGS SHIP SWANFIRE
THE STILTSKINS SHIP SWANFIRE.
I’LL BET THEY TEXTED EACH OTHER AND WERE LIKE “HEY, LET’S GO SPY ON OUR KIDS’ DATE”.
"CHARMING, SHE STOOD UP MY SON, WHAT THE FUCK."
"DON’T WORRY, BRO, I GOT THIS!"
Everyone but the one person who’s opinion kind of matters the most on this.
I was mainly poking fun at the Charmings and Rumbelle, but if you really want to get into this…
Emma does have unresolved feelings for Neal. She hasn’t quite made up her mind on what to do with them, if she’s ready to let Neal in or not, or if she needs to focus on being the Savior and a Mother—basically, if she even has TIME to fall in love and have a happily ever after. Her reluctance to meet Neal had nothing to do with NOT having feelings for him, it had everything to do with her fears of vulnerability, the burden of being the Savior, and that nagging feeling that something was off with their son.
This was clearly marked Swanfire and was for Swanfire shippers’ enjoyment. You really don’t need to be a buzzkill for the rest of us—I’m sure there are plenty of jokey text posts for whatever you ship. There’s no need to be rude.
Straggle—write the thing.
I MEAN IT. WRITE THE THING.
Swanfire pretties, I’ll have some stuff up for you this week—I’m almost halfway done with Jolly Roger smut.
Rumbellers—get ready for some A Wonderful Carol remixes this week!!!!
We’re in for stormy weather.
The writers are going to play up this love triangle. They’re going to have more growth between Hook and Emma, in order to try and give them the same amount of depth and history as Emma has with Neal.
This may mean Hook and Emma will have more moments together. Possibly another kiss. Possibly even sleep together.
This may even mean they will embark on a relationship together.
Don’t give up hope.
Our ship isn’t sunk. If any of you watch Lost, you’ll recall how long they dragged out the Jack/Kate/Sawyer thing. It won’t be forever.
I truly and honestly see Swanfire as endgame. Seriously. And it looks like Neal has a big part to play (judging from spoilers) in this next series.
Just have faith, enjoy our tag, write lots of fic in the meantime.
I know that’s what I’ll be doing.
If any of you darlings are feeling hopeless, you just go right ahead and PM me and I’ll supply you with fic, meta, hugs, whatever you need.
WE’RE GONNA BE OKAY, GUYS. I PROMISE.
I’ve only seen one episode of Lost (at the behest of my ex who was obsessed with the show), so I honestly don’t know A&E’s track record with love triangles. But I will trust you on this.
PS: I just want Hook to go away.
We all do.
Comfort yourself with fics and fluff. I promise to supply both regularly.
