(aka: here, have some hypothetical 3b crapshit completely inspired by this gifset by @half-in-love-with.)
In the end, what gets Emma to stop calling them all delusional cult freaks are the photos Regina has in her wallet (still, always, forever). Infant Henry and toddler Henry and just-turned-six Henry and nine-and-a-half Henry, and every time wrapped up in her arms or draping his whole small body over hers with love and trust that can’t be posed or Photoshopped.
She told them it would take photographic proof. Imbecilic heroes, trusting in blind faith as if they’d never met Emma Swan before.
What would that be like for them?
Why now and now before?
Who would be the one to help them along this process?
Who would Just Not Get It (TM)?
Where would they go to find information, resources, inspiration, etc.?
How would this affect them?
Wanna bring this one back.
Okay, reblogging again because I’ve been marinating on this for days but finally got the chance to write some down.
I super love the idea of Regina having a Welcome to Storybrooke awakening moment where she’s just like oh. OH. Girls. Wow. I also super love the idea of that awakening happening post-curse-breaking because heterosexism is part of the curse.
This actually makes me so angry tho.
Casey would not be giving up everything.
Jane would be giving up everything if she quit her job and moved God knows where to be an army wife. She’d be leaving her job, her friends, her family, her entire life. If Casey were to leave the army, he’d be losing his career, sure. But working with soldiers who have PTSD? You don’t need to be in the military to do that. And since he and Jane went to high school together, it is perfectly logical to assume that all of his friends and family are in Boston, too.
So why would it make any sense at all for Jane to be the one to give up her entire life? Especially considering that wasn’t part of Casey’s “marry me or I’m gonna die in combat” proposal anyway.
I literally cannot with this show, or this Jane, or this piss poor excuse for a relationship. Season 5… please correct this atrocity. I beg of you.
Everyone focused on how shitty Jane was and how they want her back to season 1 Jane.
But everyone over looked at how amazing Maura actually was. She finally stood up for herself. She stood up for Jane. She said what was on her mind. She didn’t take any of Jane’s bullshit, she wasn’t happy, she…
^^^Yes. And I think this also comes back to what Maura told Frost’s girlfriend
who’s name I don’t remember. Maura tells her (much more eloquently) not to choose a man over work, and I think as much as she’s thinking of Jane’s current situation, she’s remembering her past experiences with men. She could have married Garrett or gone off with Ian. Instead she chose to pursue a career she was interested in and satisfied by. Maura realizes the importance of this. I think she is somewhat surprised Jane doesn’t.
This just reminds me of how often I write Maura off as being somewhat socially awkward and inexperienced. Maura is definitely speaking from a place of experience. She also has enough experience with Jane to know how and when to push. That’s what makes this so hard for her. She has so little control in this situation, and all she can do it try to do what’s best for her. Even if that means walking away from Jane for a little while.
Can we just talk about how much it actually pains Maura to ask this question? Like not in the aspect of she’s in love with Jane but like let’s be realistic for a second. Jane is really her only friend. Sure, she has Angela and Frost and Korsak and the other Rizzoli brothers but they were apart of Jane’s package deal. Without her, Maura wouldn’t have these people in her life. So in a way she probably feels that if she loses Jane, she’ll lose everyone else too. Because Jane is her buffer, her communicator, her interpretor and if she loses her then everyone else will stop understanding her again and she won’t have anyone to connect with and she’s just so scared to lose what Jane has given her. She’s so scared to lose Jane.
I think that when maura says that she does not know what jane is talking about she does. She says that to convince herself that it is not happening, jane is not marrying casey, cause she is about to cry.
So here’s the thing: there’s no reason that Jane and Casey can’t both have jobs. None at all. This is a crap storyline. All the characters contemplating jobs and personal lives is lame. I’m so over this.
(Also how did Jane have to Google all that info about Casey. Why wouldn’t he tell her? Do they talk?)
The time has come: new Rizzoli and Isles.
The wait is over! It’s TUESGAY! Rejoice Rizzoli and Isles fandom!
I often forget I’m a multi-fandom blog because all my other fandoms have been on hiatus, and I haven’t been reblogging them. However, that changes now. All the shows are starting again. Yayyy.
