Why I Was so Sure that Swanfire Should have been end game
I have no idea how Adam and Eddy whipped up that lie of ‘Captain Swan was forever going to be endgame’. If Captain Swan was meant to be endgame from the very beginning, then why did it have no build up? Why was Hook portrayed as some stalker who is overly obsessed with Emma and is also overly obsessed with making jokes that are quite sexist and are towards the rapist side of things?
Swanfire, on the other hand, had so much potential. Neal and Emma were, and still are, perfect for eachother. Neal is the son of darkness, Emma is the daughter of light. Both Neal and Emma grew up without much proper parenting and were both lost souls, trying to find a home. They found this home with eachother. After they fell in love, they were planning to settle down; they did not need anybody else but eachother. All Neal wanted was Emma. And by reading between the lines of Tallahassee, it is quite obvious that Emma really wanted Neal too.
Emma kept the keychain and made it into a pendant. Emma kept the yellow bug. Neal kept the dreamcatcher. They had Henry, who has the heart of the truest believer.
Even Peter Pan himself said that it was no coincidence that Emma and Neal met. It was fate. Rumpelstiltskin ships Emma and Neal together. Henry ships Emma and Neal together. The Charmings ship Emma and Neal together. Belle ships Emma and Neal together. Mulan ships Emma and Neal together.
Neal fell in love with Emma. Just Emma. Not princess Emma, not savior Emma, not bailbonds Emma. Just plain Emma. He loved Emma when she was at her lowest. He loved Emma, and changed her into the best version of herself. Neal made Emma smile. Emma made Neal smile.
Emma and his boy are all Neal has. Even twelve years later, Emma still defines ‘home’ the way Neal taught her. There are so many parallels with Swanfire and Snowing. There are videos made about these parallels on youtube.
Emma remembered that Neal hates mayo. Neal and Henry both reject magic.
The writers have been dropping all these beautiful hints for us, showing us more and more ways how Swanfire is connected. But, alas, it all came tumbling down because Once Upon A Time has changed into Once Upon A Hook.
How could you? How could you sabotage this beautiful relationship between two lost souls just for a few desperate fans and one devilishly handsome pirate?
