Since Anna is also going to be in OUAT, I seriously hope they don’t screw up on pronouncing her name. Because even though her name can be pronounced two ways, the pronunciation used in the Frozen movie was the Scandinavian pronunciation, and I really want them to keep that pronunciation. Plus, I like that pronunciation better than the standard American pronunciation (Ann-uh).”

Just reblogging for the photo, holy shit. They may screw this storyline up in literally every other way, but looks-wise the casting is ON. POINT.

I often notice a lot of posts how “Regina needs to do this…” “Regina needs to do that…” Particularly that Regina needs to learn to be good for herself, not Henry. But shouldn’t these things be true of everyone? Shouldn’t Rumple learn to be good not just for Belle? And Hook learn to be good not just for Emma? It seems like the rules only apply to Regina, but if we’re talking about being good and redemption, this should apply to everyone, yes…?”

This fandom, outside of the Evil Regals, seems to have a set of rules they apply specifically to Regina and no one else. Part of me wonders if it’s because she’s a woman.

Like with Belle for example, both Rumple and Regina held her captive. I see lots of confessions about how Regina needs to make up for it more (her apology was a lot more sincere than Hook’s imo), but these same people don’t have an issue with Rumple x Belle. Even though I think it’s a bit Stockholn Syndrome (and I bet if Belle was with Regina not Rumple it would be a fact constantly dragged up.)

The men in this show get away with so many things compared to Regina when it comes to the fandom.

Not even a Rumbeller, and I still know the huge difference between Belle volunteering to go off with Rumple (where she eventually had the run of a huge castle), and Regina kidnapping Belle off a dirt road to lock her in a tiny asylum room for 30+ years.

No, Belle didn’t have much choice — like a lot of the crap Rumple pulls, he puts them in an impossible situation and then has them make the choice, and Belle was no different, but there’s still the semblance of choice, which is never there with Regina, and I think is what makes the difference.

I don’t think everyone deserves a happy ending. I think you need to work for it and even then there are some things people can’t undo. I don’t want all the characters to get happy endings because I just don’t think that’s realistic. Even if it is a show about Fairy Tales, sometimes people can’t come back and sometimes people’s personal flaws get too much in their own way. And I find that interesting.”

Something I don’t get. Snapefen whine a lot about people posting hate in the Severus Snape tag. Like a lot. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fandom carry on so much about it as they do.

So the HP fandom does the sensible thing and creates “snape hate”  and “anti snape” tags for their bitching…and the Snape fans can’t seem to stay out of those tags either. Is there an explanation for this? Because I may not think much of Grant Ward or Regina Mills but I’ve noticed their fans have the IQ points to stay the hell out of their anti tags, like it’s not exactly astrophysics…

You know what?

I think Lily should have stayed single.

James was a bullying douchebag who never matured, no matter what Jily shippers try to say. (he still hexed/cursed Snape, behind Lily’s back, as a “special case” for “existing” and was probs a typical 21 year old asshole)

Snape was misguided…

"Snape was misguided a racist (“You call everyone of my birth ‘Mudblood, Severus”) and easily influencedprobably due to neglect/abuse, and thought power would impress Lily, and wasn’t good at controlling his emotions and controlling (“You’re not going to — I won’t let you—” “Let me? Let me?”), obsessive asshole who already had trouble respecting her opinions, wishes, and the idea that she could have people in her life she cared about who weren’t him (Petunia first, then the Marauders and Harry later), and this is before she’d find out about the genocidal cult he’d join to ~impress her, or how he was okay with handing over a prophecy about babies to his serial-killer of a boss, OR that he’d grow up to bully children, and whether or not that would include HER children would depend entirely on who she had them with….AND he did something incredibly cruel that Lily didn’t (and didn’t have to) forgive him for.”

Fixed that for you. LOL, poor Lily. I actually like James, but her choices weren’t great if it was down to these two.

fallacyinpedantry:

You can say all you want about Snape being a horrible person and I’ll probably back you because you know, he wasn’t a great fluffy amazing person. He had issues, and I get it, you know? But don’t you daretell me that he didn’t love Lily. She was the only person he loved and the only person, in…

Erm, he “let” her marry his biggest enemy, he “let” her be happy? I don’t disagree that Snape loved Lily, but he had literally less than zero say in the matter and never would have even if he and Lily had still been BFFs at that point. Snape’s feelings have no bearing on Lily’s choices beyond that which she lets them.

Snily was basically just a BROTP turned NOTP when Snape decided only he deserved to be with Lily despite the fact that Lily loved James

I think it was a BROTP turned NOTP when he called her a racial slur, myself, but they’d been in NOTP territory for years by the time Lily decided she even liked James.
