Emma seeing Killian in new clothes

[x]

Can we talk about the fact that you CS guys used a gif of Emma looking at Regina to make that example? image

LMAOOOOOOOOO THIS IS TH E BEST THING…

We MAKE those manips because we don’t like those CS/OQ kisses. But this is an unedited SQ scene. ;)

It’s really a simple concept. Those kisses(by which I mean any het kiss either lady has taken part in) are used for SQ gifs because those are the only ones to appear in universe. Period.

There are no lesbian kisses. There isn’t a scene with Regina seducing one of her female servants or Emma making out with a girl at a bar. There isn’t even a Mulan kiss to piggyback off of. There is no other source material. There might never be any other such material.

Het kisses might be all we ever get. Even if a character is confirmed by a writer as being in someway queer after the fact, doesn’t mean we’ll ever get a kiss. If we want kisses, we have to make them, and obviously that would mean using another kiss as a base or having an insane level of skill (especially if you have to manufacture one or make an animation).

But it is particularly of note, however, that a currently canon ship is using a moment that Emma had with a woman and not Hook/Killian. The caption is obviously meant to imply that she finds Killian’s new clothes to be hot and that this is her reacting to how hot he is and this is supposed to be her when she’s all turned on and whatnot.

But the thing is:

1. Since something is going on between them in canon now, couldn’t or shouldn’t you use one of those moments instead and

2. The use of this gif to signify her being all turned on in this moment actually validates Swen’s theory about Emma being hot for Regina at this time in the show and especially in the above scene and 

3. If you use a this scene instead of a canon moment between Hook/Killian and Emma, well…you get the idea

If you want just a reaction gif, you could use anything else. Anything at all. A real big smile that she’s giving to her family or something from the scene when she’s teasing him before the kiss in Neverland.

You really shouldn’t use a gif that rival shippers use to validate their pairing. They tend to find it funny.

the idea of putting ‘rules and guidelines’ on what scenes certain shippers can use is ridiculous. your argument of “CSers should use CS scenes only, because its canon” would be like me going “Okay, then don’t use CS or OQ kisses for SQ, and find kiss scenes from other movies/shows jen or lana was in instead, because if CS can’t use SQ scenes to make art/manips/posts then you can’t use the CS or OQ scenes”—-the whole “this is for SQ’s use only” is unnerving and makes me think of a group of girls giggling and hiding in a tree fort with a big sign “no boys allowed” on the front door.(probably because i work with children, but that is beside the point) creative expression shouldn’t have boundaries. i search google for reaction gifs… i shouldn’t then have to research a scene to see what other shippers or fans think of it before posting it…

i could say that the look of lust was from emma looking at the turnovers because she was thinking about devouring them (an anon pointed out to me that she’s looking down at a plate of turnovers before looking up at regina) on the way home…. i wouldn’t then get upset if someone maniped Regina holding out a slice of lasagna then cutting to that scene and be all “THAT LOOK OF LUST IS FOR APPLE TURNOVERS, NOT THAT ITALIAN GARBAGE. DISHONOR ON THE FANDOM AND PASTAS.”

maniping is fun, but i personally feel that putting rules and guidelines on creative expression is just silly. i see a picture or gif or scene i like and want to use, i’m going to use it, regardless if it is a “swan queen” scene or “outlaw queen” scene only. 

Pardon. I’ll be more explicit. My last statement ‘using those gifs!they find it funny!’ was meant to be a joke. 

I’m just over here making very dry overly-analyzing ranty posts and telling bad jokes. My entire response was to explain the joke that started this thread and in response to some of the other responses in this thread. 

I wrote up my response in all of a couple minutes and so some of the phrasing was imperfect. The points I’m making about what any group should or shouldn’t do have nothing to do with rule-making, and you can say that it was poor word choice. It’s not like I’m a writer, so I won’t care if you tell me I’m poor with words. I admit to it. 

The actual intent was more something like ‘If you want me to take you seriously, use your own canon material that exists. When you use something we tend to use, we laugh at it.’ Honestly, most people will probably ignore us when we do though. And really, who gives a shit if we take them seriously or not?  So it’s whatever. There are no rules meant. 

I’m used to gay ships having to make things from canon ship material that isn’t their ship’s. I give no fucks about who uses what for what. I even pointed out why our ship uses what it does. No one owns a scene exclusively. I know that all of it belongs to all of us.

"It’s not a chemistry set. It’s a magical laboratory that was specifically created in order to carefully observe and create delicate magical potions and artifacts."

"Nerd."

She said she’s always gotten along with them better than people.

And noone can convince me she doesn’t garden and know all about herbal potions and talk to plants when noone’s looking and find solace in de-stressing with them and maybe even sing to them and asdkafldsnkcniej. Feeeelings.

Don’t forget she read elvish spell books.  Regina is, in fact, a huge dork.

SQ Week - Day 3

Emma Swan turns back and looks startled at the mayor’s sudden appearance. Regina wasn’t supposed to know she was taking Henry to New York. “And what makes you think you can take my son with you?”

Jack Daniels of the Silver Tongue

swanqueenweek:

image

At a place where their complicated relationship seems to have come to a shocking end because Emma has ruined Regina’s chance at love, the blonde decides to put a little truth in their conversation with a bottle of Jack Daniels and a drinking game that is fun for no one.

—-

“Miss Swan? A little late for a stroll, isn’t it?” Regina bit out after opening the door to a certain blonde ‘hero’. Regina was in her nightgown and a matching silk robe, having been awoken from slumber by the doorbell ringing, but refused to let that negate the fierceness in her posture. With eyes filled with the fire of righteous anger, she took in the fully clad blonde. Emma looked miserable, guilty, and entirely unable to meet her eyes. Instead, she held up an unopened bottle of Jack Daniels.

“I come bearing gifts…” Emma trailed off, and Regina arched a brow. She realized she should be mad—she should be furious—but as she saw the blonde, she couldn’t help but step aside instead, her posture deflating in the face of regret—and the woman who had always seen right through her.

Swanqueenweek - Day Three - Undisguised

inkblots-on-autumn-leaves:

This story explores what the attraction between Regina and Emma could be like without all their complicated history. Due to an accident on the town barrier, everyone loses their memories and chaos ensues. While they are working together to get everyone’s memories back, some clues lead Emma and Regina to suspect that they might be a couple…

word count: 6336

Nova was happy to finally have her wings back. Magic in Storybrooke worked differently but flying through the air was pure magic. She loved it when the town underneath her became tiny, only consisting of pale blotches in the light of dawn.

Today she was on her way toward the town line, on a hill in the forest. Regina had decided that it was the best point to start manipulating the memory aspect of the town line because of some magical glitch in the casting barrier that Nova couldn’t even begin to understand.

Blue allowed the Queen and the Princess to try, although the fairy hadn’t bowed down to help herself. Tink had persuaded her to give them a bag of fairy dust.

Since Blue had only consented grudgingly, she had send Nova.

Probably because she hoped Nova would lose half of her load before she reached them.

It was unfair. Nova was clumsy, but up in the air she was as elegant as every fairy. Flying, she felt like a dancer.

It didn’t matter that she had first flown in the wrong direction and was late.

Regina and Emma stood at the town line, a light sheen of energy already flickering between their raised hands.

Nova smiled. After the town line she wouldn’t be able to fly, but Dreamy and her could go and see the world on their own and they wouldn’t return until they’d seen it all.

The hanging gardens in Italy, pyramids in Egypt, the Chinese wall, the impressively huge temples in India, deserts, mountains, snow, heat, the see…

They were going to see it all.

Excited, Nova accelerated her descent, keeping her eyes on the little group next to the town line. Snow and David stood next to each other, Snow frowning at her daughter, while Ruby stood sentry a bit away.

Nova chuckled as her feet hit the ground. Surprised by her speed she ran a couple of steps, quickly falling. She watched in horror as the bag in her hands became airborne. The fairy dust filtered out, falling against the barrier, into the light fissure, into the magic Emma and Regina were conjuring. Everyone stopped in their movements and shivered as the town line visibly lit up.

Panicked, Nova turned and hastened away, flying, her fright so sheer that she ran even after the surge of magic had reached her, she fled, even as she lost all thought of why she dit it or how she was able to fly.

A zombie-bitten father tries to save his infant daughter in this bittersweet short film

So you’ve been bitten by a zombie. So long, conscious brain activity, hello craving for human meat. But the protagonist of the short film Cargo has bigger problems than his impending demise: he has to find a way to save his infant daughter, even if he has to die first to do it.

Directed by Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke, Cargo was a finalist in Tropfest Australia 2013. It’s also a rather clever take on zombie genre tropes, with a story that isn’t about the survival of self, but the survival of another.

————————————————————————————————-

The curse was coming and there they stood at the town line.

It’s odd sometimes what you think about in your last moments, and it doesn’t necessarily mean your last moments before death. Regina had accepted her death more than once now in the last two years, this time though Regina was not about to die yet still she saw her life, or at least the life she hoped for, being taken from her and so her mind was filled with memories she didn’t expect.

The memories of the last few years fought for space in the forefront of her mind, but instead of moments with her son that she had pictured so clearly as she tried to slow the diamond, this time Emma was also featured.

“Not having someone, that’s the worst curse imaginable.” Regina had told Emma once. At the time she was trying to be cruel but now the joke now seemed to be on her since she was about to loose everything.

Regina couldn’t know that Emma was remembering the same exchange, but while the person Emma was in that moment might have been please to know the arrogant mayor was eating her words, the Emma that stood here today was heart broken at the idea that this woman standing across from her was about to loose her son. They had been through a lot together and while something had seemed amiss on that day she had asked if Regina had loved Henry the blonde was now certain the boy meant everything to her. Emma had spent much of her life alone, she knew that kind of curse all too well, and didn’t want Regina to had to suffer.

The rumbling of the curse was suddenly drowned out by a voice in Regina’s head, “There’s one important lesson I can impart on you. It’s what it means to be a parent. You always have to do what’s best for your children.” Her mother had told that to Daniel right before she killed him. Cora had not known what was best for her but Regina knew what was best for Henry. She had to say goodbye to the thing she loved most. Emma was the one who had suggested that thing was Henry and Regina hadn’t contradicted her because Henry was the most important person in her life. However, if she were to be honest with herself, the thing she loved most, the thing she hoped for, the thing she was giving up was the possibility of family, of home.

And yes, while she didn’t think she could ever admit it aloud she had come to see Emma as family, because of Henry, and because of something she couldn’t quite place. On the day before the sheriff’s election, when the fire started at the mayor’s office, Regina was sure that Emma was going to leave her there to burn, but the blonde surprised her by coming back. So much of Regina’s life had been manipulated by others, once the shock had worn off, she had convinced herself Emma had only saved her to use it against her in someway later on, but then Emma kept coming back, kept trying to save her. When the mob came, when the wraith attacked Emma had come to her aid, and so Regina let her guard down and was relieved when she saw Emma return from the portal from The Enchanted Forest.

Of course that was why it hurt more that it should when Emma came that day and accused her of killing Archie. The accusations were something she could expect from Snow or Charming but she found herself truly hurt that Emma now too saw her as a monster.

“Regina, I –” She had heard Emma’s voice right before she put her hands up to the diamond.  Those two words frightened Regina more than she could have anticipated. Regina had just spoken to Emma in a way she couldn’t remember speaking with anyone, at least not for a very long time. She had been able to admit she was wrong and allowed herself for be remorseful because she believed Emma would believe her. So when she saw Emma turn back around she was afraid what would follow those two words. “Regina, I think you deserve this.” Though had Emma said that it would have at least fueled her anger what would have been worse would have been “Regina, I was wrong,” or “Regina, I’m sorry,” because that might actually break her and she had to be strong. 

Regina had been ready to die then but Emma came back and just like before, Emma, the savior, the one destined to break her curse actually came back and saved her. The victory was short lived however as Henry had been kidnapped bringing an unlikely team together to bring him home. It wasn’t easy, but it wasn’t as hard as Regina expected either. Due to their shared position as Henry’s mothers, Emma was the only one she could relate to, and believed was really trying to save their son. The most difficult thing for Regina was the constant reminder that all she had was Henry, and though unintentional as it may have been when Emma spoke to her, allowed her to lead, it made Regina feel like she wasn’t alone that maybe Henry wasn’t all she had. So once everyone had made it back to the ship and she found herself sharing a hug with Henry and Emma she wasn’t surprised. 

Still, Regina should have known that anything good in her life was taken from her too quickly, and thus here they stood, the curse coming and the only thing that could stop it was Regina giving up the thing she loved most, her happiness, her family, her home.

“My gift to you is good memories, a good life for you and Henry. You’ll have never given him up, you’ll have always been together.”

Every word became hard for Regina to speak but there was no other choice, Emma and Henry had to go or be forever separated, a fate Regina couldn’t allow because not having someone was the worse curse imaginable and she loved them too much to let that happen.
