So my university had a ‘stress-free resort’ station set up today to help students combat the stress of finals week.
There was a coloring table
complete with Lion King coloring books
There was a lego table
also, free massages.
This is the most wonderful thing that ever happened in four years of college.
Our school should do this
Every school should do this
My school does this!
imagine bucky and natasha whispering behind steve’s back in russian, just little harmless things like “he’s cute when he’s angry” and “if you tell him he’s got a nice ass he’ll turn the color of your hair” so steve decides he’s gonna learn some russian so he can understand what they’re saying about him, but it has an unintended side effect. bucky mumbles in his sleep when he’s restless, sometimes english or spanish or japanese, but most often in russian. usually it’s a litany of “don’t make me don’t make me please stop don’t make me i don’t want to” but every now and then it’ll be something along the lines of “begging for your life won’t make a fucking difference to me” and steve can’t decide which is worse
Odinsons Are Banished! AU prompt drabbles continue — and holy shit, this one’s actually drabble length!
puella-magi-homura-akemi asked you: prompts for odinsons are banished! Jane and Darcy decide to show Thor and Loki around town, like take them to a mall or a Wal-Mart or something, & drama happens. Or Loki gets bored & decides to explore. Or both.
mujaki said: Darcy is something of a periphery character in these drabbles (the better for Lokane goodness), but she and Thor have an interesting thing going on… how about something from her perspective starting from when the “pets” showed up?
(Vaguely combined the two. Sort of. In a way. I just wanted to write something fluffy, okay? I DON’T WANT TO HURT ANYMORE.)
Darcy always wanted a dog.
Not one of those little yappy squirrels-on-leashes things, either; she wanted a golden retriever like Shadow from Homeward Bound, which was her favorite movie. Sneezing whenever she’s within ten feet of fur kind of put a damper on that, but she never stopped hoping that one day she’d find a big fluffy hypoallergenic friend who would sit on the couch with her and watch TV and eat her leftovers and maybe play fetch sometimes.
Only took eighteen years, but now she’s got one.
And it’s awesome.
Hi please watch this poor mailman get attacked by a cat it’s v. important
TAKE IT WITH YOU.
I THINK MY FAVORITE PART ABOUT THIS IS HOW CHEERFUL THE MAILMAN IS. HE AIN’T EVEN MAD.
I wouldn’t be either because this is hysterical.
"Kitty-cat ready to do battle"
ok but literally how
What if we’ve all got this wrong?
What if the curse wasn’t actually a curse but a protection of sorts, to protect the Snowing baby and everyone else from Zelena’s plan? What if they are tied together. kinda like Cinderella, and as long as the curse is around, the baby can’t be born?
Because it’s almost been out right stated at this point that Zelena didn’t cast it.
In fact a curse is completely unnecessary and a hindrance to her plan if you think about it. She could have collected all of that,stuff as easily in EF as she did in Storybrooke. She already had Rumple, in EF Charming was in constant hero mode, and Regina’s heart would have been tricky but do-able. Even the baby would have been easy. Which is why the Storybrooke thing has always confused me, it was unnecessary from Zelena’s POV.
It would also explain why Zelena was so insistent that Emma and Killian kiss. She wants the curse broken so she can get the kid. Remember that Walsh was sent after Emma to keep tabs on her, and to keep her away in general, 7 months before the the curse was cast. It may have taken Zelena a while, hello midwife, to figure out what they’d done and what she needed to do to counter act it. So she decided to go with the status quo and keep Emma away.
Now she wants it broken, but she can’t come out and say that because they think she cast it, and if they knew she wanted it broken; then they’d never actually break it. She she’s manipulating the situation to get them to do what she wants, all while they think they’re doing the opposite.
I wouldn’t be surprised if this week ended with a TLK between Emma and Killian, and then clipped to a shot of Snow going into labor.
(this has been a random thought by nenny)
This is actually brilliant and makes a lot of sense. It would explain why Snow’s…just waiting to go into labor. Always seemed weird to me.
This would explain everything in Storybrooke’s storyline. All the puzzle pieces fit w/this thought. And, Snow does go into labor in 3x20 & the baby’s born. The forced TLK to break the curse really does make the most sense.
Just want to tag on, I rewatched the Jolly Roger and one thing seemed weird to me. Zelena said to Hook that Ariel found Eric “outside the force of the curse” and later Emma said in the loft, “The curse must not have reached that far.” I always thought this was weird because the first curse Regina had cast swept across the entire realm, the only spot that was untouched was the piece of land that Cora protected so she and Hook wouldn’t get sent to Storybrooke, which is the same spot where Mulan, Philip, and Aurora were and explains why, when Emma and Snow went back in Season 2, they were still there. I just think it’s odd that there is a section of land that is “protected” from the second curse — someone would have had to do that…unless, it wasn’t a curse that was cast, but like the OP thinks, a protection for baby Snowing.
Hook: “If you could have killed her you would have. You need her power removed. It’s why you didn’t kill her when she came to the town. It’s why, you had a monkey look after her in New York, instead of killing her. For some reason, you can’t.”
Zelena: “It no longer matters because you’re going to remove her powers.”
If Zelena “has spies everywhere,” then she knows that how Hook feels about Emma’s magic and subsequently, she knows that Hook would never want to take that away from the woman he loves. So she gives the ultimatum that basically forces him to have to kiss her. We’ve always joked about how Zelena “ships them” because she wants them to kiss so bad…well, what if that completely true? What if she is counting on them to kiss because they’re the only ones capable of breaking the curse since they’re the only ones who both have their real memories intact. Emma can’t TLK Henry, because TLK doesn’t work with memory loss, so their kiss wouldn’t break the “curse.” It would also explain why Robin and Regina’s kiss didn’t work either, because they’re both sans their real memories as well. Plus, if Zelena takes Emma’s magic before the curse is broken, Emma wouldn’t be able to use it to stop Zelena and we already know that Regina isn’t powerful enough on her own to defeat her sister. Essentially, it kills two birds with one stone: hinder the Savior and obtain the last ingredient to her spell, ensuring that Zelena does make it back in time to alter events.
OH. AND. At the end of the “Bleeding Through”
Charming: “Since our baby’s not born, she’s stuck, and we have what we need…time.”
Snow: “Just not very much of it.”
Also, for me, the way Snow had delivered that line made me think that she was going into labor, like the panicked look on her face was that her water had currently broken, but she wasn’t and it didn’t. Like Michelle said, she’s simply just waiting.
Hook: “Almost harvest time and you can’t remember the planting.”
Another metaphor for waiting.
I mean, at this point, this theory makes the most sense. We found Zelena’s motive: go back in time to kill Ava, but that doesn’t explain why she needs Hook and Emma to kiss so badly, this does. Bravo, peeps.
HOW ARE YOU ALL SO FUCKING SMART?
What if Zelena lied to Hook and didn’t actually curse him? If she wants them to break the curse then she must be aware that TLK breaks all curses.
That is also a very strong & real possibility. She could have easily lied to him b/c of being aware that TLK breaks all curses. It’s not like she hasn’t lied & clearly manipulated situations to get what she wants. They did say she was going to play heavily on the mind games & that would definitely be one hell of a mind game on both Killian & Emma. Zelena really, honestly doesn’t view Emma as much of a threat nor Emma’s magic. Zelena really, truly & honestly thinks Emma & her magic are amateur to her. She does see herself as superior in that department. She definitely more wanting the curse/protection broken to get to that baby. It looks like it’s just a means to get TLK to break it & use it as a distraction for Emma so Zelena can get the baby to be born & make a beeline for it. That’s what it looks like to me at this point, anyway.
This could even all work with Smee being the “rat” theory! His information would be how she knew about Killian’s feelings for Emma and is sure that it can be a TLK.
Also I think it might be significant that Aurora and Phillip are not in Storybrooke as well, since their kingdom is “only a day’s ride away” (so obviously very close to where everyone else was) why wouldn’t they have been caught up in it as well? Ariel and Eric are more understandable since they were farther but…
I’m against it for a number of reasons, mostly outlined in other places, but one that I haven’t seen — the story isn’t all about Hook. He’s a main character, sure, but the curse isn’t about him in any way, shape, or form; it’s Zelena and Regina, period. Having Hook suddenly become able to cast the curse and do it (and somehow not get picked up by it at the same time) just to get back to Emma is a) nonsense, b) out-of-character, and c) deliberately undercuts the actual conflict at the heart of this half-season, between the two sisters.
So, no. Hook did not cast the curse. He doesn’t have magic, it doesn’t fit in with his characterization, and no part of the curse itself has anything to do with him.
