Thoughts on Emma Approved #1
Emma is a POC! She’s half Asian, and while I’m speculating that Mr. Woodhouse would be white, wouldn’t it be totally kickass if the late Mrs. Woodhouse was Asian, like Japanese (since the actress who plays Emma, Joanna Sotomura is half German half Japanese).
Going on that tangent, it could also explain why Emma is so driven… everyone knows how perfectionists Asian Moms are. 
Perfect Emma so far — a little bit arrogant, a little bit too self confident, and tad bit too self absorbed and blind to her flaws. Works well with the fact that she aspires to be the next Oprah.
We meet Knightley! And honestly I could care less that they changed his name to Alex Knightley (which I ranted about here) because the way they portrayed the character here is exactly how envisioned a modern Knightley. Mr. Knightley is probably my favorite Austen man (sorry Darcy!) and I love that here is seems just that — a down to earth guy, who is the rational serious foil to Emma’s hyperness, charming and definitely exasperated at Emma’s antics. He is first and foremost Emma’s closest friend, and he does so… he always points out her faults & shortcomings, because he just cares so much for her. (It also helps that Brent Bailey who plays Knightley, looks a bit like Jonny Lee Miller who is my absolute favorite Knightley. Also he is such an eye candy!) 
Love that Emma right off the first episode is sickeningly annoying. True to character because we are supposed to not really like her as a heroine. The magic will be in watching how she grows up and matures here.
Emma starts off as this polished uber professional, and I loved how right when Knightley comes into frame her persona shifts into a more casual bantering one. Definitely highlight how these two are comfortable with each other. I expect that the videos would be alot more casual as Emma’s world “crumbles.”
Annie Taylor and Ryan Weston! So yeah, these two are so cute already, and I am definitely looking forward to how the awesome folks over at Pemberley Digital expands on their story. Especially because Ryan already looks to be a fun guy (how can you not when you are the CEO of a cupcake factory?!?) and Annie is just sooo pretty and sweet!
UGGGHHH, THE CUTENESS!
110% sure that Harriet will be Emma’s PA… hoping she would be a POC, so can’t wait for her to show up in the videos.
Love love Emma’s office! The whole bold hues of reds and oranges is just so young and vibrant! 
Love the contrasting colors between Emma’s red and Knightley’s blue… like in LBD, I’m assuming they would be matchy matchy once they start realize that they are falling in love with each other.
* WINKS * ~ding!
Excited to meet the rest of the cast/characters… especially the actor who will play Frank Churchhill (who would probably be Ryan Weston’s brother here rather than his son as it was in the original book) because dude, you have such big shoes to fill… since he needs to come off charming yet douchebaggy — since Wes Aderhold (George Wickham in LBD) did that so well.
Wouldn’t it be cool if Jane Fairfax turns out to be this super accomplished doctor (that worked with Doctors Without Borders etc etc.) who has helped alot of people in third world countries. It would sense that Emma would be envious of her “accomplishments” since its much more inspiring since she saves lives? It would also be funny if Jane Fairfax was also super nice like Jane Bennet in LBD. Double whammy!

Spoiler tags on things like this, please.  I cheat, but really living on the west coast shouldn’t have seen this yet.

Oh the pain.

Also, guys: THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FUCKING TAP DANCE AND HOLD HANDS AND HAVE ROMANTIC FUCKING EXCHANGES ON THE TOWNLINE! THAT’S WHY IT’S MARKED WITH RED PAINT, MEANING STAY THE FUCK AWAY

Also… so if things had of gone according to plan, who was taking the car and who was walking? Was Gold going to drop Belle at home and then go on his search? Was he calling a cab? So confused.

Inside Belle’s Cell

1465 marks on the cell walls. 293 groupings of five. Assuming that a year in the Enchanted Forest is the same as in our realm, and allowing for errors where I may have occasionally mistaken bumps in the metal for groupings or missed out on counting groupings due to camera angles, Belle was locked up in that cell in the Dark Palace for approximately three to four years.

I refuse to believe that because I don’t want to.

I’m just going to pretend she was counting HOURS. Which would be like, two months. That’s much better.

Oh god…

Imagine the amount of notes she could’ve written and hidden away.

At least Rumpelstiltskin wanted to be locked away.

I prefer to imagine that those are just there as another mind game from Regina.

Yeah. That’s it.

This is actually another piece of my canon, being proved.  Think about everything Rum did after losing Belle.  The entire Snow/Charming saga of the potion to forget, then the bow and arrow, then Charming being locked up, then getting out of the Infinite Forest, which is followed by whatever was involved in ‘taking back the kingdom’ and then the wedding, Snow being pregnant, the whole Cinderella thing, then him being locked up, and then we know he was locked up for some time.  All these things happened after the Queen told him that Belle was dead (aka she had him locked up.) So yeah, three or four years sounds right.  I had figured two at a minimum, maybe more.

PS: thank you, whatifqueen, for counting.  I got lost after 200 and something.

Can we just agree that whatifqueen is the best? and that I want to be her padawan. 

anextrapart:

WHAT. WHAT. ARE YOU KIDDING ME.

THAT WAS THE STUPIDEST FUCKING COP OUT.

SHE JUST REPELS THE HEART THING? OUT OF NO WHERE? BECAUSE SHE’S JUST THAT FUCKING SPECIAL?

NO.

THIS IS NOT HOW WE DEVELOP PLOTS, SHOW. THIS IS NOT HOW WE WRITE.

My one complaint. Although it does make Paint It Black, my favorite Swan Queen fic all the more canon-y.

Sneak Peek Plot Bunny

rufeepeach:

thestraggletag:

As some people have pointed out, other than the normal feels the sneak peek left us with: a scantly-dressed Belle unconscious on a bed with her hair in a halo. Any red-blooded Rumbeller’s mind is gonna go: think of Rumple finding her like that, after temporarily disposing of the Queen…

So… it’s gotta get ficced. Hard. Fast. Thoroughly. Over and over again till it can’t take it anymore.

Just wanted to say that. Have a good day.

I’m in if you are, Strag. I propose a smut-off :D
