As we’ve been seeing in these past episodes (especially 3x18), Emma’s magic is coming from the emotions she feels towards Killian. So, if Killian stays away from her, like he feels he has to in order to protect her, her magic will not be at its most powerful. “ EDIT: quotes from a post by a fan, not any official source!

How people? H O W? What is logic? Where are you getting this idea that Emma’s magic is coming from emotions she feels towards Hook? (And let’s just call him Hook ok, because he’s still looks like a pirate, still talks like a pirate and still lies, cheats and steals like a pirate.)

Why is Hood’s Tat facing the right? I think I found it!

Ok guys, I know some members of Swen have been wondering why Hood’s tat was facing the opposing direction of the Coat of Arms so I did some digging.

Every family can have only ONE coat of arms. And every knight has to abide by it. If it is facing another direction, it’s either the wrong coat, or its the choice of the barer, who does not have the right to make that decision.

Now, Hood’s tat is facing the viewer’s right. In heraldry that’s called the Sinister. I was searching around and there’s no legit reason why it’s called that…Until I found this:

Abatements, sometimes called rebatements, are marks of disgrace attached to arms on account of some dishonorable act of the bearer…bearer would of course rather relinquish them than publish his own disgrace by bearing them abated. Abatements such as the above exist only in systems of heraldry, and no instance of their actual use is on record: but under the several headings diagrams will be found explaining the meaning of the terms which are used by heraldic writers. Broken chevrons, and beasts turned towards the sinister, are supposed by some heraldic writers to have been given as abatements.”

That could be why Hood’s tat is turned the opposite way! The only way this is possible is if it’s an abatement!

EDIT: If you want to read more on this, check out this website :D

I like this theory. Only one addition, it’s called ‘sinister’ because sinister is actually latin for ‘on the left side’. You see, to the viewer it’s facing our right, but the actual object (in this case the lion) is turned to it’s left side. In anatomy for example, the body is divided into left (sinister) and right (dexter), eg: blood vessels that run on both sides of the body are named [insert blood vessel name here] dextra/dexter if they are on the patient’s right side or [insert blood vessel name here] sinistra/sinister if they are on the patient’s left side. This is precisely why I didn’t take the sinister to mean anything other than direction of the object. However, with this new info about how ”beasts turned towards the sinister, are supposed by some heraldic writers to have been given as abatements,” now I can consider the fact that maybe Adam and Eddy have made a point to have RH’s tattoo facing the wrong direction. That’s really good to know. 

So let me see if I understand correctly: basically, Robin’s tattoo is flipped from the direction a coat of arms would normally face because it’s a sign of disgrace? As in, it reflects Hood’s status as an outlaw? THAT’S SO FRIGGIN’ COOL!

This is brilliant! I made a post not long ago about the whole heraldry/tattoo thing with the Charming’s coat of arms and Emma’s and Robin’s tattoos, but didn’t find a direct quote on why facing sinister was a bad thing, other than the impression I had.

To be fair, the article you linked to is very specific about the ‘official’ abatements, and none of the nine varieties explained are animal charges, (lions in the case for Robin’s tattoo). There’s also the matter of abatements being either sanguine (blood red) or tenné (orange tawny) but since we’re talking a tattoo, that could be overlooked. We also don’t know if RH’s lion is the same as the Charmings’s, so maybe the original was already facing sinister for whatever reason (maybe it was facing another charge, in which case it would not be be dishonourable).

Regardless, the fact that "beasts turned towards the sinister are supposed by some heraldic writers to have been given as abatements" is good enough for me as proof that something might be fishy about RH. And the OUaT team tends to pay close attention to details so there’s at least a big chance that it was done on purpose. Great find! =)

WHY I THINK SQ IS STILL END GAME

kingtrouble69:

When making Fan Videos you have to go through a lot of footage frame by frame and doing this you tend to see things that you might not see while watching the show.

For Example this scene caught my eye.  Now this happens after they show the clip of Emma and Hook talking while playing darts and then they leave.

photo insta.gif

 Notice Regina’s eye shot, it was like she was watching them and then turns to RH.  I know some SQers are thinking that Regina is choosing RH because of Emma being with Hook and I believe this theory as well.  It is like she saying that she can never have what she really wants because Emma being with Hook and Henry losing his memories.

Here is another scene this breaks my heart watch Regina’s face as Emma Walks away with Hook.

photo insta-1.gif

Here is a closer Shot

That is so heartbreaking It’s like she is watching the girl she loves walk away with "THAT PIRATE" It reminds me of this old Ray Charles song You Don’t Know Me

Anyways I think this is why she chose RH and where the jealous Regina lines come in.  In the vault it sounded like she was fishing for information to see where Emma stands with her feelings.  There is also this scene where their coming back from Neverland and are hugging Henry after Regina puts in his heart, and Emma is looking at her and for a split second Regina looks up at her and I think she realized that maybe just maybe Emma has the same feelings for her as well.

So if this is supposed to be “Queer Bating”  Which I thought they might be doing as well then why these very quick moments.

A cracked article helped me understand the feminist part of my creeping unease with both CS and OQ, but especially CS

ashermajestywishes:

Hey all,

The link is here http://www.cracked.com/article_19785_5-ways-modern-men-are-trained-to-hate-women.html.

I’m on my phone, so no pretty linky things, but read it anyway.

It’s written by a man, and speaks to other men with a level of honesty that is shocking. The writer does not soft soap his words or couch them in academic terminology. He says what he sees.

The whole article is good, but the one that really opened my eyes was the first point. Men are conditioned to believe that a beautiful woman is their reward for a job well done. You see it everywhere. The hero does heroic things and, at the end, he gets the girl. I could start listing movies in which this happens and still be here next year.

Disney movies are an especially good example of this. Except that they are not anymore. In its most recent movies, Disney has stopped awarding beautiful young women to the hero. Yay Disney!

Such was season one of once upon a time. Such was Snowing. Snow was not David’s reward for his good deeds. Snow was his partner. Equal in all things. None of the potential love interests in season one were awarded Emma. One died, one turned into wood and Emma went on her merry way.

Then in comes season 2, and fucking Captain Hook. He sees Emma, decides he has fallen madly in love with her and proceeds to do things to “win” her. See the problem there, what happens (as often does in real life) when you’ve done a whole bunch of wondrous things to impress a woman and she still isn’t into you?

My question is why did Once feel the need to introduce this type of dynamic at all? Why take these strong, resourceful, independent women and throw that shit into the mix? It wasn’t needed and it obviously isn’t working because the ratings are down. The difference between the season one and season three ratings is shocking.

Ok, so adding Hook as a major love interest didn’t work. So they introduce Robin. A man who has no connection to Regina other than some pixie dust and a son. He’s there. He’s a hero. He’s unattached so he immediately receives one of the most powerful sorceress of her age? What?

The rub friends, is not just that men are conditioned to believe that pretty ladies are their rewards for doing good. It is that women are conditioned to see ourselves as those gifts, and guess how that conditioning happens?

Ten Tumblr tagging tips!

directorlazard:

  1. You can’t put “-” in your tags. It won’t work. Either put a space, or jam it all together.
    • That means, by the by, that when I tag commander-tseng, I actually write “commandertseng” all together. The other option is “commander tseng” - but you cannot put dashes in tags, because Tumblr puts dashes in automatically.
  2. Capitals don’t matter. They don’t. There is no difference between when I write “rp notes” and “RP Notes” - they all show up together.
  3. Trying to link your posts together? Tag them all with the same tag, and they’ll all show up together!
    • For example, this post is tagged with “helpful reference” - that shows up as “/tagged/helpful-reference” and can be added to my blog tag. (If you’re not sure what I mean, click the link and look at the URL!)
  4. In reference to #3, say you’re tracking your RP. And say it’s a long RP. That’s wonderful, but if you want to reread it, it’s a pain to page backwards, isn’t it? Here comes the /chrono function. Type “/chrono” in at the end of your url, after the tag, and hit enter. Now, you can see your RP in the order they were posted!
    • Examples: my RP with renothe is The Masks Men Wear, and tagged as tmmw. Here is the regular tagged link, which is the automatic given when you click a tag to look at it.
    • Now, that happens to be four pages long, so add /chrono to the end and you see the posts in the order they occurred! Helpful for rereading things!
  5. Tag tracking works like so: in the upper right of your dash, there’s a “search tags & blogs” area. Click it, and type in a tag. If you don’t track your own, now might be a good time to start (and be sure to remember tip #1), so click there and type it in. For me, I track “directorlazard” and typed that in. Immediately, all the posts with that tag in them show up! If you’re not tracking it, you’ll see a little button that says “track” up in the search area by the tag you put in. Click it and BAM. You’re now tracking that tag!
    • Be sure to let your followers know what tag to track you at!
  6. When you click a tag on someone’s blog, you only get that tag as it appears in that blog. Let’s use the example of “doink” - in this case, meaning my posts about the event.
  7. Tags pages are helpful - not just for people who come look at your stuff, either! When I forget the details for something, I check my tags page, because it has a lot of good references for MY own use. So, how do you do it? Easy enough, actually. Add a page to your blog - or a post, if that’s all you think you’ll need - and then start listing your tags. Just write the words out first, that will tell you what you’re linking to. Then highlight it and click the “add link” button (looks like the infinity sign, fourth from the left) and stick the tag URL in.
    • a URL example: my “helpful reference” tag you see on here would be “http://directorlazard.tumblr.com/tagged/helpful-reference”
    • as a side note, when I know what my tags are and want to do a lot of them, I’ll just copy the “http://directorlazard.tumblr.com/tagged/” bit and then type my tags after tagged/
  8. Have a bunch of tags that don’t work? Maybe you didn’t know tip #1! Have no fear, mass post editor is here! On your dash, hit “posts” - it’s directly above “followers” on the right. That takes you to what looks a lot like your archive page, with alllll your posts. Try clicking one to begin the edit process.
    • When you click a post, it mentions how many tags it has. Then, while it’s highlighted, click “edit tags” - your tags for that post will show up in a window, with checkboxes that let you remove any you wish. That’s especially helpful if you want to select everything and remove, say, all the posts with broken tags.
    • if you want to add new ones, of course, use the “add tag” option - and deselect is also rather obvious. You can also delete posts from there.
      • Important side note. If you delete a post, that just deletes your source copy and breaks links to it - if someone reblogged it onto their page, it’s out in the internet and not coming back. Lesson of the day: never put anything in writing you don’t want someone to see.
  9. Tags not working? Be sure you spelled it right. It’s incredibly easy to misspell something.
    • It’s also entirely possible Tumblr messed up.
  10. You can write as many tags as you want, but only 30 will attach to the post, and even less will display. None will automatically reblog to someone else.

Hope that helps. ^^
