What kills me about SwanQueen is I may never be able to write a love story that is stronger or more intricately tied into the plot or more founded on the emotional levels of the characters’ individual histories and they don’t even fucking want it to exist.
"Are you implying that you don’t?" she looks at Emma with wide eyes. "She cannot be saying what I think she’s saying". Regina thinks.
"Well… I don’t know, would that be the craziest thing that happened around here?" Emma answers her with a shrug, leaving Regina more stunned than before.
"You cannot possibly be serious, Miss Swan!" Yes, she was definitely saying what Regina thought she was saying. That they could actually be a couple someday. Not just that… be a family.
“I’m not saying we… I mean… what I’m saying is… it doesn’t look like she is lying.” She averts her eyes and starts to pick at her fingernails.
“I’m just going to pretend I didn’t hear this, have you completely lost your mind? That woman is not our daughter, Emma!” Regina snaps. "No… she simply can’t be… it’s impossible". How could she ever become Emma’s… lover? Or… wife? No, just the idea was already simply ridiculous.
Emma just rolls her eyes at her. “Fine, ok. You’re right, it is madness. But here’s the thing, Regina… we have to figure this out then, we have to talk to her.”
"Yes, we have. Let’s talk to this… Elsa then.” Regina releases a breath she didn’t even notice she had been holding.
Neither of them notices the woman standing outside the room, hearing every word they said, and wondering how she was gonna make her mothers believe her.
Day 2: Favorite Scene
→ 3x11 Going Home
I just wanted to point out that this is the woman who originally took away Emma’s future. Regina is the one who cast the curse. Regina was going to kill baby Emma in order to prevent her from coming back in 28 years and breaking said curse. Regina is the reason Emma grew up in foster care feeling unloved and unwanted. Regina did everything she possibly could to take Emma’s future right down to poisoning a turnover.
And then we have this scene. This beautiful scene where Regina finally gets to a point where she accepts Emma’s place in Henry’s (and her) life. At this point, Regina thinks she is never going to see Emma and Henry again. To her, this is the end, and she gives Emma everything she’d taken from her with that first curse. Regina’s entire life for the last eleven years has revolved around Henry and yet she doesn’t initially intend to give this speech to him, but to Emma. Because this isn’t just about giving them memories and preventing them from going into our world with a huge chunk of time missing, and it’s not [just] about Henry –– this is Regina’s apology to Emma. It’s her way of starting to right the all the wrongs she’s committed against the other woman, even things Emma doesn’t know about. It’s her way of saying to Emma that she is cared for and wanted and loved.
So I’ve been told.
