In defense of the Rumbelle proposal

Hear me out.

Okay so in regards to the proposal/lying/trust thing, I actually liked this plot point. I actually thought the breach of trust went both ways: Belle basically ransomed Rumple’s freedom to save Zelena, the woman who tortured him and murdered his son. Rumple then reacted in kind. It’s a really good analogy of why their relationship is actually interesting when the zomfg dramaz aren’t keeping them physically separated: she expects him to be far more noble than he actually can or even should be, and he cares too much about her opinion of him - and loves her too blindly - to be able to straight-up reason with her.

tjmystic:

They aren’t seriously trying to make it seem like REGINA is the one who admits they’ve done wrong, right? I mean… that’s just… this is the sort of thing RUMPLE would say. This… I can’t even come up with words… this is horrendous writing.

i am so incredibly angry about all of this. Are you ACTUALLY shitting me?

Okay so lets review this fucking shitstorm of a fucking scene:

  1. Regina, who’s heart we saw LITERALLY LIKE TEN EPISODES AGO was all mottled black, who has KILLED AND RAPED AND MASSACRED PEOPLE, is now able to conjure white magic. When we were told LAST FUCKING EPISODE that Emma’s ability to do that was a mix of pureness of heart and coming from True Love. So within the rules of this universe, Regina shouldn’t be capable of it. And yet through the magic of A&E’s throbbing boner for this character, SUDDENLY SHE IS THE SAVIOUR BOW DOWN MORTALS.
  2. Rumple who spent the last half season being mentally and physically tortured, forced to do awful things against his will, and watching the person he loved more than anything in the universe die all because of this bitch being ONCE AGAIN FORCED AGAINST HIS WILL to not kill her. Like she doesn’t even just say stop and then reason with him. She literally used the dagger to stop him, robbing him again of his agency. Like he’s a vicious wild animal that can’t be trusted. I’m actually feeling nauseous about that.
  3. Let’s talk about that actually, shall we? Let’s start with the fact that I am incandescent with rage over the sheer mass of horrible shit Rumple’s dealt with in the last few episodes, only now to be once again treated as a villain. He sacrificed himself to save your ass Regina. He sacrificed everything. And now, when it’s completely reasonable, when HE HAS MORE REASON THAN THE REST OF THE CHARACTERS COMBINED to want to brutally murder this bitch, Regina decides to paint herself as a hero and moralise to him. Regina who’s lost nothing and gained everything. Regina who Zelena has taken literally nothing from. She gets to be the hero and make the Right Choice (tm), while the man who has been literally tortured is made out to be the bad guy ONCE AGAIN for wanting her dead. It’s not vengeance. It’s justice.
  4. Regina ‘understanding’ Zelena’s villainous ways and condemning Rumple for not being so forgiving. When she’s fucking seen and heard all that Zelena has done to him. Regina who still hasn’t truly apologised for killing Graham, Snow’s father, that whole village of people, or fucking anyone else. Even her apology to Belle was a bit half-assed and geared to get Belle to help her, not out of any real remorse.
  5. And even discounting that MOUNTAIN OF BULLSHIT, ‘heroes don’t kill’ is a fucking TERRIBLE MESSAGE FULL STOP. If Snow hadn’t killed Cora everyone would be dead now. If Snow or Charming HAD killed Regina when they defeated her the Curse wouldn’t have happened and they’d all have been better off. If Rumple hadn’t killed Peter Pan they’d all have been cursed to an eternity of pain. Heroes kill when leaving their enemy alive would do more harm than good. Heroes kill when it is unjust and unwise to be merciful. 
  6. And on that point, it’s not even the finale. You’re insane if you think Zelena’s defeated now. She’ll come back for the two hour finale, she’ll succeed, everything will go to hell, because you couldn’t see past your dumbass heel-face-turn non-sensical entirely naive sudden morality shift and let this tortured, broken, entirely justified man do what’s necessary and right.

In conclusion, fuck this show, fuck this writing, and fuck anyone who had anything to do with this.

Have you seen the promo for next week's OUAT ep? If not, BIG ASS SPOILERS. I think Neal's going to get his heart crushed in front of Emma, and I already feel like someone's got a fist around mine. You're the most high-profile SF shipper and Nealfire fan I know, and I was wondering if you'd help lead the charge to AU his death out of existence. I want Neal to become OUAT's Coulson, because a show about happy endings and found family killing off such a sweetheart feels like betrayal.

I want Philip, Aurora, and Mulan living together and raising the baby together and Aurora tells the stories and Mulan teaches her how to sword fight and Philip takes the little one for walks and the babe grows up with three parents who all love each other very much and there’s never any thoughts about which one is the ‘bio’ mom and it’s lovely.  

There is as much chance of a polygamous relationship on ABC as there is of hell freezing over. Unrequited lesbian love is still 10000x more than I expected to ever get on this show. I’m not optimistic, I think Mulan will find someone else and we’ll never see Aurora again bc babies = end of story :(
