Whenever anyone asks me why I thought Neal wasn’t good enough for Emma and why I hated how he treated her and how it hurt my heart every time I saw her regress into that hurt 17 year old girl every time he rode roughshod over her opinions and feelings and justified anger, this is what I will show them.

Just looking at this makes me want to hug Emma and punch Neal, because GRRRRRRRRRRR.

It’s not even necessarily the fact that Neal acts like this that pisses me off, it’s that people continue to see the way he acts towards her and still think they’re meant to be, or that if he lived, this could be repaired. 

expect Neal to act like this; he wasn’t born with any courage, he was not raised by parents with courage, and he did not bother to pick up courage anywhere along the way. Of course he’s going to  deflect blame and avoid confronting what he did to Emma. We really can’t expect better from him. (Even among ourselves, how many people HAVEN’T ever cringed at something hurtful they’ve done and rationalized it to death?)

The point is, we can’t expect him to face what he did or act worthy of Emma because he isn’t worthy of Emma. The second he chose his own fear of dad over the well-being and freedom of his 17-year-old girlfriend, he stopped being worthy of her. 

It’s sweet and poetic to think about couples overcoming past hurt and obstacles to be together, but in real life, the details fucking matter! This was not a case of temporary hurt feelings or someone saying/doing something they didn’t mean. He changed the entire course of her life in a HUGE way. What he did was not an accident.

OKAY SERIOUS TALK ? I want your opinion

do you guys think that Emma could get pregnant again? Because I’ve been contemplating on whether Adam and Eddy would write that in at some point. Do you guys think that Emma would want to..???? I SURE HOPE SO .

I would actually really love it…

I believe this will happen. Even if it is presented in some kind of epilogue-type form when the series ends…I think Emma’s deep desire for a family will eventually progress into wanting to build on her own nuclear family with Hook and Henry. Watching 3b, you can tell that Killian is just aching for a future with her, and I think it goes without saying that he would absolutely love a child and be a wonderful father.

“After not seeing Regina with anyone after Daniel…right up until Robin, I don’t really want her with anyone. I’d rather she just had a brilliant bond and relationship with Henry, and if she wanted, made friends with everyone in town. She doesn’t need a man, she’s strong.”

Oh good lord, are we kidding?  
I functioned believing bullshit like this for years; that strong girls don’t need a man, and I scoffed at romance, until one day I was like “Ok, I’m strong, just like I always wanted to be…but what if I also want to spend a lot of time with this one particular guy who I love being around and who encourages me and also want to have sex with him?” 
Don’t you think part of being  STRONG is recognizing what you want and having it, if possible? Why on earth is a ‘strong’ person not allowed to want/need a man? Why limit your emotional capacity and experiences just so you can fill some stupid definition of what Strong is? by the way, would you ever say that reversing the gender; “He doesn’t need a woman, he’s strong”? Real, honest-to-goodness love (romantic or otherwise) can only make you stronger and better.

don’t you think it’s kind of funny that we have these characters with magical powers that go on incredible adventures and do amazing things and that’s really impressive but after a while we’re like “okay so what if they just owned a coffee shop. imagine them filing their taxes”

“For me, your True Love is someone you can fall apart in front of, and they’ll be there for you. In the times where you breaking, they’re there. Someone to hold you when everything is too much to take. Which is why, after seeing the scene where Emma saw Snow be burnt, and Killian took her in his arms, I believe they are True Love :)”

I actually like that they present it this way. Not all women want to raise a child, or are fit to raise a child, and that should not be a huge outrage. Not wanting to raise Bae does not make Milah a bad person; having a complete lack of guilt about abandoning her son would make her a ‘bad person’. She clearly felt bad about the pain she caused her son, but she did not waver in knowing that she didn’t want to raise him, or couldn’t because of her crippling misery.
This is why my mom left me and my dad; she was horrifically unhappy, my dad was not helping her be happier ever, plus she suffered from mental illness. The combination made her an unfit mother at the time. While that sucked for me, knowing how sorry she felt made all the difference. I was angry at the time of course, but now that I’m an adult I see that she was in an impossible situation. I don’t know that I could have done any better had I been in that situation. There is a big difference between knowing your parent was very sorry for doing what she did, versus being unapologetic and indifferent. The latter would feel like complete betrayal, while the former is a sad thing that happened, but not devoid of love.
Granted, Bae knew none of this until later, but still in theory I won’t condemn Milah.

Leaving was the right thing for her to do, even if she did so the wrong way (however I am not convinced she had any other options). Leaving was better for her, and was better for Bae. So she shouldn’t regret leaving even if she is sorry for the pain that was caused. Because regretting her actions would mean she would do things differently, and it was best for everyone concerned that she left.

Yes. I’m convinced that Rumple and Milah’s marriage would have eventually turned abusive anyway if she hadn’t left (well, more abusive). While Bae had to deal with not having his mom, it would have been equally as bad for him if not worse had they stayed together, and gotten progressively more unhappy. I’m not unconvinced that Rumple may have  eventually ended up killing Milah anyhow.
