Midnight: well, it does now! I’m thinking Slurpeez is right. Maybe the Seer tells him his destiny, to become evil and cause choas, and he runs away thinking to avoid it and thus by not wanting to believe the prophecy, he actually walks right into in. Classic trope in Greek literature.
I was thinking about this the other day and how what he did to save his son is what cost him his son. And with the theory and speculation of the prophecy, this sounds the most in tune to pre-dark one Rumple.
It keeps reminding me of Revenge of the Sith and how Anakin fell! The premonitions caused his turn to the dark side yet if he didn’t turn to the dark side they wouldn’t have come true :-//
Ah, a good old self fulfilling prophecy, gotta love that tragic stuff! Can’t wait to find out exactly what this prophecy says, and also if this Seer is where Rumple gains his own skills of foresight. I’ve never thought of him as a real future seer before, but maybe he picks up some tricks from this girl, or just from his experience with her. If he misinterprets her prophecy and then his actions cause it to come true, that may be how he learns the art of carefully crafting his words, which is how he ends up such a pro at saying exactly the right things to manipulate people’s actions.
PS. obisgirl, I’m not a CaptainSwan shipper as such, but do love their flirtations, and I love your sig! 😉
