No….I’m saying Regina intervened with what Fate was going to fix for her….Regina was in the wrong place at wrong time…had she not been there, Fate would have fixed itself. But the “Good” Regina spared Marian’s life by saving her….I think that makes up for her killing her originally. But Beware Marian, because Fate is gonna be “Final Destination” for you.
“Fate” is an excuse invoked by those who who choose to do the easy or the selfish thing instead of the hard work of changing things. Emma would be a very poor heroine indeed if she had followed that prescription.
It was prophesied….even Tinkerbelle declared it as being Destiny! So it is Fate! And screwing with Fate comes with dire consequences…consequences that Emma Swan did not care to think about before jumping to play superwoman! Consequences that Regina is going to have to yet again pay for because of Emma’s careless mistake!
That makes no sense…how is Regina saving Marian from Marshmallow not “cheating fate” if Emma saving Marian from Regina is? Why would Regina just have been “in the wrong place at the wrong time” when Emma made a “careless mistake”? And how can anyone say for sure that it wasn’t fate that Marian be reunited with her family?
Also, perhaps Regina kinda destroyed that “destiny” (OQ) when she chickened out and didn’t go into the tavern to meet Robin the first time. Maybe if she’d gone in, they were supposed to be together but she didn’t, and now she has to live with the consequences. Are they still destined to be together after Regina chose not to go in? (I think they will be just because that seems to be how the show works, but theoretically…) And Tinker Bell said he was her happy ending…I don’t remember her saying anything about their being destined to be together, no matter what. Just that he would’ve made Regina happy. In Neverland, she told Regina that by not going inside, she ruined not only her life, but Robin’s too. She didn’t say “Well you’ll just have to meet up later, now that you’ve had his wife murdered.”
