    I wouldn't miss the aquarium. It's fantastic! The beluga whale exhibit was my favorite when I went there.

    OUAT vs. Other Fairy Tales: Compare & Contrast

    And some of us deal with our disappointments by reading and writing made up stories based on the made up stories in the show. Very healthy, I’m sure. :-p

    OUAT vs. Other Fairy Tales: Compare & Contrast

    Now that I have some distance from the show, I feel like I've been in a mutually codependent relationship. Something like Belle and Rumple. I never could pull away because of the hypothetical great writing the show seemed capable of. The writers started heavily relying on audience manipulation starting from Season 2, but it grew worse in Season 3B, and never recovered. That's when the show became completely about pandering to Regina. A&E started writing everything around her (and Rumple from then on).
  4. Seems like they're still on the Regina woobification train. I still have traumatic memories from A&E's S1 official ONCE podcast where they joked about Graham's rape. Giving this one a pass.

    OUAT vs. Other Fairy Tales: Compare & Contrast

    I agree. I wasn’t too impressed with the last episode, but it’s hardly bad. TGP has been so good, that a mediocre episode seems like the worst ever. It’s possible that the show will go downhill, but it’s too early to tell. Westworld started out really good, but went off the rails in season 3. They went too arcane, like LOST on drugs. And bizarrely enough, one of the co-creators claims she never saw LOST. Maybe she ought to have—to avoid its pitfalls and to stop reinventing the wheel. Whatever its flaws, LOST was groundbreaking television, and it’s odd when people making the same genre of show claim to have skipped it. But maybe she was flubbing, because there was one scene in the recent season that screamed “LOST callback”.
  6. Most of the screencaps used in the article didn't even have the fatal flaw described below it. Who writes this stuff and are they getting actually paid for this drivel? lol

    I really don't get why there are some people bent on dissing Frozen. Not every movie needs to be the epic of feminism or have flawless writing to be a good. I don't agree with the article. The writers seems to go out of their way to nitpick the movie and tear down any hint of praise for it. These days there seems to be a trend where people feel the need to justify why they like or hate something by bringing in some aspect of social justice spiel into the picture. Sometimes it's okay to say that you didn't really feel the movie and move on.

    My magnum opus is here: haha. It is a Regency AU inspired by Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. You can expect lots of Emma-Mary Margaret interactions in the fic, Snowing, and Captain Swan. The story is complete and will be updated every Friday. Links: Tumblr. Ao3. Ff-net.

    Ah! Good Place season 3 premiers today. I forgot all about it. I need to block the tag on tumblr temporarily until tomorrow night.

    I just finished writing a 75K fanfic. It should start posting in October. I can't believe I wrote so many words. Now I can have my life back. :-p PS: This is why I fell behind in the rewatch. Now, I can catch up.

    OUAT Series Rewatch!

    I’m so behind on the rewatch. I might skip a few to catch up.
  14. The joy of fanfic is that we can ignore canon details that are inconvenient. ;-) It’s called a Canon Divergence fic. I’m just pretending the last ten minutes of the show did not happen. The future people just sealed themselves off in a separate realm until ten years were gone and then returned to Storybrooke (to visit only).
  15. Because apparently she secretly craved the darkness and loved his psychopathic side.
