"I prefer maritime laws over laws on land. Maritime laws only exist to guarantee safe passage. There are no loopholes or biases to favor more powerful vessels. Every ship is equal, and no one is more powerful than the sea."
This is actually something I kind of felt, and loved about living/working on a ship.
I really need to see Emma and Killian researching or reading the Book, but this time sitting on the bed with Emma in one of his shirts, and Killian sitting behind her, looking over her shoulder and playing with her hair.
Sorry to generalize, but usually the people who call Captain Swan rape culture are SF and SQ shippers.
Except then they want Emma in a relationship with Neal or Regina, both of whom are ACTUALLY guilty of rape. Neal canonically had sex with 16/17-year-old Emma when he was clearly and canonically over 20 years old, and Regina canonically took out Graham’s heart (and therefore his physical agency as defined by the show) anddemanded her guards to take him to her bedchamber, which she continued to do in Storybrooke, clearly against Graham’s wishes.
These things HAPPENED, and they are RAPE. They are legally, absolutely rape.You literally cannot claim they did not happen as it is blatantly portrayed on the show.
FOR GODS SAKE!!!!!
I get very annoyed with people who dismiss canon just because they don’t like it, but let’s be real, I would totally be doing the same thing if Adam and Eddy ever made Killian & Emma have a son and DIDN’T name it Liam.
Are we ever going to acknowledge that OUAT is basically a shining advertisement for the seemingly ridiculous longevity of VW cars??
“As a single mother I’m so glad Emma and Neal never got back together. Since day 1 my family kept on pestering me to go back to my ex and still insist my daughter would be better off if her parents were together. Seeing Emma not rekindling her relationship with Neal should show to all that single mothers aren’t obliged to be with their child’s father”
This is the reason my parents stayed together for too long—they were told over and over that I’d be better off with my parents together even though they resented and did not love each other at all, so I grew up in a house where things would be so tense and sometimes violent that I would leave the house and go read in the woods to calm my anxiety. Life was so much better for everyone when they finally split up. That kind of old, backward thinking doesn’t do anyone any good. A child should be raised with people who love them, regardless of who that turns out to be.
"Hook gave it to me."
'I thought she could have it in memory of you.'
"Yeah well she has me now."
What I don’t like about that scene is that Neal thinks that after all that, he still has dibs on her. That they are…
If I had done to someone what Neal did to Emma and I ran into them again, I’d be so ashamed of myself I wouldn’t even be able to look at them or anyone else associated with them, let alone get a puffed-up chest and act like I was reclaiming the throne in their life.
“When Regina tole Emma she was exactly like her mother, I wanted someone to point out that Emma is nothing like Snow because she was raised by stranger for her entire childhood on account of Regina.”
Ok since the next episode is “White Out” how about a fic where Emma and Killian are stranded somewhere and have to stay warm together. They can be in danger if you want :)
