Tonight is the Season premiere of Once Upon a Time. I hope that Will’s character will be okay. On the horrible chance that the writers ruin Scarlet Queen, I just wanted to say to my fellow shippers..
and just remember no matter what happens in Ouat, we will always have the beautiful story told in ouatiw.
This scene toward the end with Ana, Will, Alice and Cyrus is just so well done, too.
Ana’s apology and warning, especially. After spending so long building this regal persona, she slips back immediately into the young girl who only wants Will to love her. Her accent, her expressions, her whole demeanour changes and she’s just so genuine, probably for the first time since those flashbacks of before she was queen. There’s just so much unrestrained emotion from this woman who’s spent so long hiding it - this was the moment when I knew I loved this character.
And I love Cyrus’s trust in her. The fact that he sees the truth in her might be only because he’s a genie, but he acts on that without hesitation because he can see the best in her.
Happy 25th birthday, Emma Rigby! (Sept. 26,1989)
