When we were children, we listened to the stories our mothers told. We wished so badly to be the princess, beautiful, and loved by all people. We wanted to live in a tower, books and talking animals our friends. Hoping the prince would come, the hero who swoops in and saves the day. But as time went on, we came to learn the prince can’t always be relied upon. You got left waiting in the tower, while the prince ran off and had his fun. So we climb down proud and strong, the heroes have left us to our own devices, and so we came to the realization, that a Hero can be anyone. So we don’t need the prince to slay the dragon, we’re just as capable as any man. We are the heroes of the adventure, and we can write the story on our own.”
i s2g if it’s some flashback to emma’s childhood in the foster system and they paralell it with some regina/emma shit and it ends up like ‘well yeah she did all of those things but she’s chaaaanged…. let’s give her another chanceeee…. i after all fucked up her new flavor of the month…. we’re even’ i’m gonna
if it IS during that episode i only want emma to realize that she owes her NOTHING and that she doesn’t need to apologize to her for saving a life and fucking save her relationship just in case they somehow found out that she had killed macklehood’s former wife. i want her to say ‘you know what - if you’ve changed so much, prove it to your boytoy and suck it up. prove it to this entire goddamn town and to your son and stop pining the blame on everybody except on you.’
i want queen queen to be apologetic and REMORSEFUL FOR REAL of what she caused emma - to feel unloved and stay alone for years, YEARS, for making her miss her entire life away from her real family. to APOLOGIZE. and to apologize for being a fucking brat and a pain in the ass whenever she and her family are concerned.
