Tonight is the big finish guys…we did it…we made it through to the end, LOL!!! We may have lost some members along the way but we’ll still love them no matter what, and whoever is reading this, whether it’s returning forum members or guests to our forums—which I have no idea how long will stay up LoL—-just know that we’re family through and through!
It’s been seven years…we’ve all been a part of each other’s lives not just through the show but so much more…it’s truly been the ride of a lifetime! I don’t know what will become of our forums after the last chapter airs tonight, but you guys will always be the best part about this experience. The friendships, the laughs, crazy theories, predictions, the fun, the jokes, and yes even the numerous fights that @rumplesgirl & @matthewpaul had to break up….we’ve enjoyed OUAT when it was at it’s best, and survived it when it was starting to become at it’s worst….the journey of the show may end tonight, but I’m happy that the bonds we formed over the last seven years will last forever!
Thank you for seven magical years forum family, and thank you for forever lasting friendships!
With all the love and magic in my Evil Regal devoted heart, Elizabeth (WickedRegal)

This day has finally come….
Through it all, through the crazy shipping wars, bad writing, and times I literally kept asking myself WHY am I still watching this show, the one thing that has always had a place in my heart for this show is this forum.
You guys make me proud to call myself a Oncer. I have enjoyed so much of the time spent here, even learned so much from so many of our discussions. It’s going to be hard getting used to not being able to pop in here hoping to see spoilers for upcoming seasons or set pics or interviews.
but…..I can’t even put my feelings into words. Everyone just imagine I’m giving you all a virtual bear hug right now and crying my eyes out. It’s been a long journey we have been on, for a very long time. I can’t believe the journey stops here.

I wish I’d found these forums earlier. I would’ve loved to go through all the seasons instead of just this last one.May 18, 2018 at 11:56 pm #347472
I have really liked this forum from the very beginning of OUAT. There has been a lot of good complex discussion over the years. A lot of well thought out arguments that i have really enjoyed reading. I will miss the discussion way more then i will miss this show. Even though a lot of us have different favorites, we always kept it together and had good discussion. Thanks for writing and for discussing. Good luck, in the next fandom, whatever that might be.May 19, 2018 at 12:19 am #347476
I know I stopped posting here long ago, but I continued to lurk, and followed the show until the very end. I just wanted to say thank you for the past 7 years. I know we had our differences, but I have never been so grateful for a tv show.

Reading this thread is really touching to me. I’ve cherished these past several years discussing this crazy show with each and every one of you. I truly won’t forget it. We’ve talked about “this could be the final Season” as far back as Season 4, but to flash forward 4 years since then to that finally being the case? It’s a lot to process.May 19, 2018 at 2:29 am #347480
I was 14 when I found you guys all so many years ago.
Now, I’m nearly 21. This forum has been such a pivotal part of my transition into adult life. Before Once Podcast and the forums, I didn’t realise that being completely invested in a show was something that was not only normal, but grounding for many; a space away from our busy lives where we got to relish in something we loved.
For all of the ups and downs that this show has brought over the years, it is the discussions and friendships that I’ve been a part of and witness to on the forums that have changed me and will be the fondest memories of OUAT.
I will never forget hearing my theory discussed on the podcast for the first time. I won’t forget RumplesGirl responding to one of my posts; I freaked out for so long that a Once Podcast celebrity had taken the time to write back to something I said. I won’t forget getting to defend my opinion with passion and might, even when it went against what others thought.
Thank you to the people of Once Podcast, admins, members and lurkers alike.
If at all possible, I hope the forums posts are archived to download, even if the site goes down.
Thank you for the last seven years.
