this is the funniest comic ive ever drawn in my entire life
artielu replied to your post “lovingcaptainswan replied to your post:guess who started reading…”May I suggest that you do not read the third book (Allegiant)? I really enjoyed Divergent, liked Insurgent, and hated Allegiant with an unholy passion. It was TERRIBLE and I am happy to rant specifically why if you would like.
Don’t tell me they pulled a Mockingjay where the third book is just a shitfest?
oh no dont tell me they did because i need to read allegiant and i swear if they messed literally everyone up like mockingjay i will cry you dont even know
lol which one because first i got all happy and was about to promo carmina and go on and on about how amazing she is because she made it for me…
but then i realized i also had this gif on my homepage…
so basically idk which you mean but i love them both and now i cant stop laughing :P
Let’s talk about this line for a sec, eh?
"Don’t thank me yet. You see, I’m in this for the long haul. And you already walked out on Emma once; not so sure she’ll let you back in."
We’ll get to the gloriousness that is the long haul at the end, because first I want to talk about Hook bringing up a point I—and other CSers—have been making for a long time.
If the true love story wasn’t about Hook and Emma, but about Neal and Emma…Hook wouldn’t be necessary. He wouldn’t be part of the equation.
Like Hook himself just said, he isn’t the obstacle between Emma and Neal. Their past, what Neal did to Emma, and how she had to carry that pain for 11 years, is the obstacle.
He knows that Emma and Neal can’t work out in the end, which is why he’s decided to be patient, even if it kills him. But inevitably when Neal and Emma fall apart FOR GOOD, he doesn’t want to be held responsible by them…OR by Henry.
Like I’ve said, he wants to be a part of Emma’s family, and being seen as a monster in the eyes of the boy he wants to be a stepfather…isn’t something he’s looking to repeat.
He’s well aware of how similar the situations are, but he knows he doesn’t have to “take” anyone away (even though Milah had her own agency the first go of it), because Emma will leave Neal on her own.
Now, to the long haul.
You guys…I hope you’re never, ever, ever nervous again.
Not only did Hook and the writers just say on screen a synonym for “endgame”, but it also shows (once again) how IN LOVE Hook really is.
This is not a man who loves easily, but when he does, it’s unwavering and with his entire being. He knows he wants to spend the rest of his life with Emma, and he knows it might take a while for her to be ready for that, but he doesn’t care.
He’ll wait. He’s not going to move on.
Unlike some people.
This is absolutely perfect You know what else I also found interesting? Charming & Emma’s conversation and the choice of words they used. Emma is being ”pushed” towards Neal and "kept away" from Hook. They could have worded that conversation any other way but to me that is such an accurate depiction of the triangle situation. I mean, I even hate calling it a triangle at this point but, still. Those words really stuck out to me. Also — if Neal & Emma were true love… Neal would be stepping out of the way and we’d see him flirting and trying to forget Emma, not Hook. But as always, the focus is on our broken pirate and the effect him keeping his distance had on Emma. Emma knew if she didn’t meet Neal he wouldn’t bug her again…and she made a calculated decision to not go. There is no other way around it. She doesn’t want to be bothered about starting things up with Neal, she’s drawn to Hook, she misses him when he isn’t around…like JMo said, he is a VALUE ADD to her life and when he’s not around, a part of her goes with him.
So basically Hook isn’t going anywhere, he’s putting himself through the pit of despair to give Emma and Henry a chance to mend their family without him standing in the way of it… then on the other hand you have Neal pressuring her to start mending things b/c that’s what HE wants (just b/c he asked her in a “cute” way, doesn’t take away the fact that it was a sugar coated ultimatum) — whether she is ready for that or not.
People can complain all they want about Hook flirting with Tink and trying to get a reaction out of Emma…he made a completely selfless and noble decision for Henry and for Emma and it broke his heart. He doesn’t know where he stands with her at this point b/c she’s given him no indication, he doesn’t know where his place in her life is, he’s trying to be a better man and it’s a real struggle for him but the most important thing is he’s DOING it. And by saying he’s in it for the long haul, he’s saying he’s changed for good and he will always be there for Emma & Henry. He’ll never walk out on them, no matter what the cost. And I just really think that’s a beautiful sentiment and as an Emma stan, I’m so glad she has someone like that in her life b/c she deserves it. We should all be so lucky.
so much yes
and can i just
#I find it deliciously ironic that in a show about twisting and redefining what a fairytale should be about it #that it’s the good guys #the heroes #that are trying to keep hook and emma apart #they may not being doing it in spite but snow and david were both there in the echo cave when hook practically told everyone he was in love #and they must figure that emma doesn’t just kiss anyone #there was something underlying there to spark her into making that move #yet they feel the need to push her towards neal #and honestly this is more about snow than it is about david because he just follows her lead more often than not #I just find her really frustrating this season and it boils down to what regina said in 301 #snow is NAIVE especially about love #she got her happy ending with the first person she fell in love with and that’s all good but it’s not how it works with everyone #and this constant theme of her saying that emma owes it to herself to give neal another chance is grating #and I have a feeling it’s going to boil over and emma’s going to tell snow what happened in their relationship #I just want snow to have this moment of epiphany #specifically in the next episode where hook and emma are looking at each other and it just hits her that there’s something there #that maybe she’s been going about this the wrong way #because let’s be clear about something #directors don’t do things on an accident #all those moments hook and emma had where we saw snow’s reaction? #they’re there for a reason #snow knows deep down that hook and emma have a connection but the thing is that she doesn’t want to admit it #/end rant (via asyouwishemma)
Okay, does anyone remember a little more than a month ago when Jen came out with a quote that was about Emma’s truth about how she feels about both Killian and Neal would come out, and the way it would was that we could guess a million ways in which we could think of but you don’t see this one…
ALSO SHE SAID THAT SHE LOVES THIS EPISODE AND IS VERY EXCITED FOR US TO WATCH IT!!
Messaging your person for CSSS on your phone is probably the most stressful thing ever because its SO EASY to forget the anon button -__-
I JUST HIT 900 FOLLOWERS OMG GUYS THANK YOU SO MUCH
GUYS REMEMBER WHEN WE WOULD SIT AROUND AND HAVE PRAYER CIRCLES THAT KILLIAN AND EMMA WOULD BE IN A SCENE TOGETHER NOT EVEN HAVE TO TALK OR LOOK AT EACH OTHER JUST TO BE IN THE SAME ROOM AT THE SAME TIME
AND NOW HE LITERALLY IS NEVER NOT LOOKING AT HER AND SHE FREAKING MADE OUT WITH HIM IN NEVERLAND OHMYGOSHSOMEONEHOLDME
