Shippers. Hmm. No, I’m a Hookist. 🙂 I come from an Internet time well before the term Shipper was ever coined and I still find the term totally weird, but witty enough to appreciate!(grin)
I follow the Pirate, which springs from my life long adoration of the Golden Era of Hollywood swashbucklers. In particular, the magnificent Errol Flynn. He was quite dead before I was born but his old movies spoke to the Romantic Adventuress in my soul. O’Donoghue’s Hook was just too damned irresistible and enormously easy on the eyes to ignore. Flynnesque to the bone and then some better. Perfect voice, perfect outfit, perfect music, too. Let’s just say he filled up my senses (wink)
I watched Once from day one and fell for the entire premise. Rumplestiltskin and Evil Queen were the standout favorites, with edgy Snow a close third. When Hook appeared, my interest was cemented. It was just a matter of time before things naturally progressed to providing him the quintessential feminine foil of equal depth.
Emma was the stoic hard-ass realist. Strong and in your face. A perfect heroine to throw into a softer, glammed-up fairy Tale world. When Hook and Emma climbed the Beanstalk, it was immediately clear to this old romantic soul that they were a grand match just waiting to explode into each others’ lives. Undeniably Yo Ho Hubba Hubba waiting to happen.
It isn’t essential for couples to rule the show, but it IS all about True Love at the core. Love of family, love of friends, love of lovers (grin)
I’m just very glad that it turned out as it was sassily telegraphed. More to come, more to explode, but supremely right for each other. A trip I hope continues.
