the magic lessons never end at Swan-Mills’
Have the Swan Queen fandom really started raising money to make a shitty documentary on how their ship is never gonna be canon? Guys, I’m all for LGB and stuff but this is beyond a fucking joke. I AM SO FUCKING DONE.
If you would look into the academic work of any fandom scholar (personally I recommend Henry Jenkins or Lisa Lewis in this matter), you will find that ‘how their ship is never going to be canon’ is the base of most, if not all, fieldwork on lgbt relationships represented in television.
There are many reasons for this, especially the interest in these topic due to non-visibility on tv in history. To explore something by a ‘shitty documentary’ (or a ‘shitty research’ or a ‘shitty book’ or a ‘shitty PhD in Audience Studies’) is an actual thing people do for living and brings new information into the still new field of Media and Fandom studies.
I recommend you read Henry Jenkins’ (a leading academic from 1991 when he first published ‘Textual Poachers’) blog in general, or maybe just posts like these where he talks about how ‘his ship’ is divided by a glass and what is represents: http://henryjenkins.org/2008/05/the_glass.html.
Or maybe, you know, actually do your research before calling someone’s work ‘shitty’.
AU: Princess Emma asks The Evil Queen for help
"You’re brave to come here alone, girl," the Queen spoke, eyeing the intruder. "Brave, but stupid. Like all Charmings."
"You know who I am?" the blonde girl asked, carefully approaching the burning fire.
"No amount of rugs can hide the shining goodness within you, little girl. It’s disgusting, really."
The Queen considered sending Snow White the head of her beloved daughter on a plate, now that such opportunity arose. They buried their differences long time ago, for the sake of peace within the kingdom, but that did not mean Snow’s foolish daughter could just waltz into her kingdom like that. Surely, there should be consequences.
"I need your help, Your Majesty," Princess Emma said, her voice trembling slightly.
"Oh, sweet child, After everything, you think I would help anyone of the White family? You must be even more naive than your mother. But amuse me, what do you want from me?"
Princess Emma took three steps forward, her face illuminated by the fire. The Queen took liking to the sight of her and found herself staring. Without the tremble in her voice, the blonde spoke.
"I want you to help me kill King James. I want you to help me kill my husband. I heard that in the entire Land, you would have an understanding what it is like to be married to a man only because your family needs the connection."
Queen Regina fought her surprise at the spark of true hatred she saw in the green eyes. Indeed, she now knew what drove the Princess to her castle.
"Very well then, I believe it’s bad manners to discuss business without a drink. How would you like a glass of the best apple cider you ever tasted?"

"They told you everything was waiting for you, they told you everything was set in stone. But now you’re feeling like a different ending, sometimes you gotta find it on your own."
"Can’t Sleep" fan fiction-inspired/trailer Swan Queen :) This doesn’t really give away any spoilers and I recommend you go and read the fic, too! Enjoy!
It would make sense for Zelena being Rumpel’s daughter - born before Regina but because she was born green (because Rumpel is the Dark One and lizard-ish) she wouldn’t be a ‘fit child’ for throne (e.g.: Cora’s ladder up) and so Cora sends her off to another world to get rid of her (Oz).
So Zelena is pissed because she was the first born and was supposed to be the Queen (even tho illgimate but who would know) but Regina ‘stole’ that from her.
Also explains Rumpel being on Zelena’s ‘side’ on the poster?
