“I don’t think that Hook giving up his ship was the biggest sacrifice made in 3b. I understand that a ship is the symbol of who he was, and his home for hundreds of years. However, I think that Charming sacrificing his heart is way more of a sacrifice than giving up a ship. When Hook gave up his ship, he still had potential to find Emma and be happy. Charming understood the fact that he would never see Snow, Emma, or his unborn child ever again.”

Neal sacrificed his life to save everyone. Rumple sacrificed his life to save his loved ones. Charming was willing to die to save his unborn child. I know that Hook giving up his ship was supposed to be a grand gesture, but when every other male lead on the show has literally died for the people they love, it does kind of make it look petty.

What stands out to me is that it wasn’t purely a selfless gesture.  Neal actually does die. Rumple gets brought back to life, but at the cost of Neal’s life.  Charming is saved by Snow and Regina, but fully expected to die.  Even other characters who have sacrificed something other than their life were doing it for selfless reasons.  For example, when Belle gave up her freedom to protect her people from the ogres, she believed she would spend her life as a servant to the Dark One and had no idea she would fall in love with him.  Hook gave up his ship specifically to get back to the woman he loves.  Yes, he was bringing her back to Storybrooke to break the new curse, but he knew that if his plan succeeded, he would be reunited with her and have another chance to win her affections.  It might be comparable with Snow wanting to stay in Neverland with Charming when they thought he wouldn’t be able to leave.  It’s certainly more than just a business transaction, a ship for a magic bean.  But when almost every single character has made a completely selfless sacrifice at some point, it kind of pales in comparison.

Hook’s motivations for trading his ship was more self-serving than the other forms of sacrifice, Even Regina  sacrificing her own happiness and revenge, for Henry and giving him and Emma new memories was done thinking that she would never get to see Henry again so she wanted to do what was best for him, and that meant removing her from his memories and replacing them with happy memories with Emma. by trading his ship he didn’t risk losing a part of himself, it was his home , but he could make a new home. He had more to gain then he had to lose. 

Yea, all of this. David, Neal, Regina and Rumple all were willing to sacrifice their lives and chances at happiness for someone else, knowing it would in no way benefit them. Hook sacrificed something of his, to get something else for himself. Even if he was helping Emma, and even if it was a sacrifice on his part, it’s not comparable to those that were willing to have nothing in return. He knew he wanted Emma more than his boat and made a choice because of it. It’s just not comparable. 

Hook doesn’t fit into the mold set by the main characters. He is from a very different story than the rest, and lived on that ship. The reason hook giving up his ship is a big deal is because he gave up his home. He left it behind, the place he and Mila were together, the place he was happiest. He threw away his ending, so he could have a new story.

But that’s the thing. You just said it. He did it for HIS own new life and story. He did it so HE would have something he wanted more. And I’m truly not saying it wasn’t a sacrifice and I’m not saying going for Emma was wrong by any means. But him making a sacrifice, no matter how big or small, when it was to his own personal benefit to do so, is not on the same level with those that sacrificed for another knowing it meant they LOST EVERYTHING themselves. In David, Neal, Regina and Rumple’s case, they were giving up their lives and happiness completely for someone else; Everything they had. Hook gave up one life for another HE WANTED MORE. HE benefited from his sacrifice but the others did not and knew they wouldn’t. That’s, in MY opinion, the difference.

are you by chance taking any supplements to enhance your muscles?

No. If you’re talking about that selfie, that was someone else I was reblogging, so you’ll have to ask her. But if you’re really asking me, no. I use C4 as a pre workout and use Beverly International UMP just as a post workout protein shake. Nothing else except a lot of protein in my diet.

The Life of a Multi Shipper in the OUAT fandom

filthycurtains:

*runs to defend SQ* That is false, there isn’t proof.

*runs to defend canon ship* No, you’re taking away her agency as a woman.

*runs to defend SQ* Seriously? They’re not even sending hate to the cast right now!

*runs to defend canon ship* Um…you can still be a fan of a character no matter what you ship.

*sits down*

*drinks water*

*sighs*

Hello Beautiful Person! If you get this, you’re supposed to paste it in the ask of 10 people who deserve it. If you break the chain nothing will happen, but it’s sweet to know someone thinks you’re beautiful inside and out! :D

Thank you :)

unpopular opinion time

I don’t think this is the unpopular opinion. I think it’s just one subset of one ship who thinks it’s a good idea and doesn’t seem to realize or just doesn’t care that they will make the entire ship look horrible because they are angry.

Don’t want to watch the show? Fine. No one gives a fuck. But making all of SWEN look horrible by trending boycott tweets, I have a problem with.

blackhart43:

I’ve had time to think about my last post. I am not going to let the haters and trouble makers chase me away from my fandom. Yes, SQ is MY fandom too. Just because we don’t agree with each other from time to time doesn’t mean we don’t support the SQ fandom. I am a huge SQ shipper, you only need to…

Thanks for answering! I keep seeing posts saying Emma was abused her whole life and they dismiss Cora's abuse of Regina. It's pretty fucking canon that Regina was abused by Cora, is it not?
Anonymous

Regina was abused on screen. There is no debating. Her mother strung her up in the air for trying to walk away. Then strung her up again for trying not to marry a man more than twice her age. Cora was also degrading to Regina for “riding like a man”, she manipulated her and put power above her own child. At one point, she was going to kill her own child. Cora’s abuse is inarguably, undoubtedly canon. There is literally no debating it.

Emma being abused is very possible. We know her life was hard she was not treated well so the HEADcanon that she may have actually suffered a real form of abuse, is an understandable hypothesis. But it’s fact that it’s NOT canon yet. It’s NOT proven fact.

I too, find it incredibly interesting that people will disregard actual CANON abuse of Regina while simultaneously pushing their HEADCANON that Emma was actually abused. Absolutely fascinating the lengths haters go to ignore actual facts.

sgtmac7:

Why is it that every few months we have to go through the silliness of reminding a few people that they do not speak for anyone but themselves? Neither SWEN nor any other shipper group is a single-minded collective and no one should presume to speak for whether fans will stay or go. Speak for yourself and leave it at that, ya?

Not trying to stir anything, but I am genuinely curious. Has it ever been made clear that Emma was abused in the foster system? I don't remember that being canon or seeing it. Do you know?
Anonymous

Abuse is not canon. To the best of my knowledge, the only thing that is canon, is that she didn’t have good or loving families. In season 1, Mary Margaret says not all foster families are bad and Emma tells her that all the ones she had, were.

Physical abuse is complete headcanon. Emotional is also headcanon, but knowing she had “bad” families makes it a bit safer of an assumption, even if it’s still an assumption.
