Anonymous said: I will never understand why Regina gave Robin her heart. They can't say there was a prior bond between them since they hated each other in FTL. There's no way Regina should have trusted a total stranger with Zelena on the loose. And honest or not, any human can be coerced. A random hole in the ground really would have been better. Never mind that we saw her put a spell on Henry to //specifically prevent heart-ripping//. But romantic metaphor ftw! (funny how it meant jack shit for Aurora/Mulan)

ouathinktank-metacommentary:

There’s absolutely nothing else to add to all of this, your summary reflects all of our feelings about it rather well, dear Anon. But then again, the moment they negated any and all significance of Daniel in her life (and with that, thirty-forty subsequent years of vengeance in his name, everything she has done, as well as what she has become) we should’ve known. For some inexplicable reason (or maybe not, everyday sexism where a woman’s ‘reward’ for her atonement and her happy ending can only happen through the love of a ‘good’ man, combined with severely components of gaypanic — explain it rather well?) Regina Mills had to have a love interest, and his character/storyline got equally “complex and profound” development as all these semi-season villains/storylines?

Vapid, shallow and mundane seems to be their writing-model now, eh?

Whilst they could have, should have done it better. All they had to do was take the fact how hard it was for Regina to even get to the point where she could allow herself to fall in love again and then act on it too — as a starting point. But that went out of the window the moment she opened up to a complete stranger, who has only one talent — to pop up from every single forest bush? So yes, we might be touching on the ‘something happened’ theory. That is, something happened to drastically shift the direction of the show, from mid-season to end, when the finale suddenly went all OQ/CS heavy for no apparent reason. It’s one thing to say that the writers are just awful and didn’t build things up properly but it’s another thing to say that the writers are just awful because they’ve inserted heavily sexist narratives into storylines that don’t make room for those narratives. It’s absurd that Regina gave SpittleMan her heart, just as it’s absurd that Emma simply had to go into that time trip with Killy Willy. Someone wanted the heterosexism to intensify and they jammed these storylines together like an impatient kid with a Rubik’s Cube. The name going around these days is Goodman, a producer with a serious wet spot for Killy Willy. It’s also possible that Adam and Eds themselves were just oh so hot for SpittleMan and Killy Willy that they actively ignored their own storylines. This is still a possibility as well. We might never know. And yes, it meant very little for Aurora and Mulan because all fairytales end with one boy kissing one girl while she’s asleep and then marrying her pretty much the next day, amen.

So in the end, you’re right about it all, Anon. It’s all riddled with major plot holes that can only be explained by deliberate ignorance of some form or other.

I didn’t choose my NOTP. The writers did that for me when they introduced shitty characters as competitive love interests for my OTP.

Spending 3 hours of my evening translating a full description of the OUAT Comic-Con panel has been an unfair (cruel) activity. Not at all mitigated by GOT on the background.
