Alright guys, so there’s one thing I really want to say. More than say, I want to shout it and scream it and never stop saying it - because I love this ship with all my heart.
Whether people watch from now, or don’t watch from now. Whether people check in occasionally or ignore the show completely. That is everyone’s personal business and I don’t want to see anyone giving anyone shit for whatever their decision is. But please, if you love this ship. Don’t quit it.
Swan Queen are too much. They are too beautiful. There is too much story to them that we should ever abandon them because of what poorly written canon is happening. Forget Once Upon A Time, we’ve been a separate fandom for a good long while now really. And we can continue to be a fandom til the end of our days. The show can do whatever it wants - it can marry Regina off to Pongo for all it concerns us.
We can just use whatever material there is for our gifs and our fics and all the beautiful work we create. It’ll be like we take other JMo and Lana work and use that.
We can have our Big Bangs and our Swan Queen Weeks and we can continue to be the amazing, talented, prolific fandom that we are.
We evolved into our own thing a long time ago, we became a nation sailing together high above the bullshit. Maybe one day they will decide to go there, maybe they won’t. We can remain distant from it. But whether they do or they don’t, we have already taken something from this more beautiful than they can ever claim to have offered.
We did this. We took a story and let it blossom into one of the most beautiful stories I’ve ever had the privelge to encounter. Swan Queen is ours and they will never take it away from us. So whatever bullshit is ‘canon’ - we don’t need it. We are telling our own story now. Ours.
And the only way to really hurt it, is for us to stop telling it.
Miss Swan, I think you know what I would do… (っ＾◡＾)っ
The broken locks were a warning you got inside my head
I tried my best to be guarded, I’m an open book instead
I still see your reflection inside of my eyes
That are looking for a purpose, they’re still looking for life
