Once Upon A Time
We all want things to stay the same. Settle for living in misery because we are afraid of change, of things crumbling to ruins. Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation.
Elizabeth Gilbert (via childrenofthetao)
Many times in romance I have been the victim of my own optimism.

Someday you’re gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving. You’ll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, but your life was changing…

Swan Queen Week + Truth Serum

+ bonus

OMG YES. i want to see the rewrite of this episode where missing that one ingredient changes it from memory potion to truth serum and Regina goes around being excessively truthy. 

The more I see…


The more I am convinced that TPTB are hiding something when it comes to SQ.

Lana and Jmo clearly enjoy interacting with each other so I don’t think it’s the case they don’t get on. I think the lack of SQ tags/Morrilla ‘selfies’ just points to something being covered up.


I’ve decided to compile a list of when Regina brings her hand to her stomach when she feels like she is losing something/someone she loves.

Thanks Swen for helping me do this! Here is the Original Post [X]

1x18 When Leopold proposed her she knew she was going to lose Daniel and her freedom — sinisterliberal

1x22 When the curse was broken she knew that she was going to lose Henry and feared for her own safety. — awistfullove

2x15 When Cora was in Storybrooke, she knew that Snow could be right about her mother only wanting power and not loving her. —- little-beastie-the-evil-savior

3x19 When she witnessed Emma argue with amnesia!Henry and he walked away from her. — dalliance-amongst-the-stars / reighne-sq (me)

3x19 When she was making out with Robin and amnesia!Henry walked away and didn’t give a damn. She knew that her Henry would’ve have said something. It was just a reminder that he wasn’t the same person anymore. — dalliance-amongst-the-stars

3x19 When Emma went to go fight Zelena and walked away from her and Henry. She knew that her white knight Emma could die fighting her battle for her. — reighne-sq (me)

3x1 When Emma was pulled from the ocean unconscious on the Jolly Roger. — adelinawp

You cannot argue that Regina doesn’t care about Emma. I think the evidence above is enough to validate what her character is feeling without having to spell it out.

I think Lana is portraying something like this subtly since she cannot do it canonically (although since this is all from the show, does that make it canon?). She knows that Regina is afraid to lose Emma because she loves cares about her deeply.

If you have more examples please reblog with the picture!


I just laughed so hard. Colin.

Never forget Regina dreaming about Emma coming for her. 


When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit.
