Hi everyone! I’m Sci-Fi Girl, or SFG for short. 😀
As my name suggests, I am a fan of all things science fiction, fantasy, and more, whether it’s in books, TV or film. Basically, anything that makes me think, which OUAT certainly does! 😎
My usual internet home, where I have been posting for several years, is called ExIsle. It is a forum of friendly sci-fi fans, discussing various kinds of sci-fi and other genre stuff, plus politics & news, and assorted friendly chat.
There are plenty of OUAT discussions there too. If you want to see them (or not), here they are: 😉
Anyway, that’s enough introduction to start. I look forward to lots of interesting discussions here, and getting to know some new people! 😀
SFG 😎[adrotate group="5"]

So I meant to answer some of these questions, but I started to come up with too much to say, and then it started to feel like work, LOL! I will probably still post various thoughts, but in the meantime … my thoughts on shipping:
I have noticed there is a bit of a … split, among members of this community. Some of you may have noticed that I have already posted in both of the shipping threads in question.
So here’s the thing. I like both ships! Is that a rare position to take here? (Honestly, asking.)
Because really, what I dislike, is romantic triangles in general. I would say it is because it’s annoying to have to choose, but that is really not it. I don’t have to choose. (I am perfectly happy liking two fictional characters, LOL!) The problem is the show has to choose, and the character has to choose. And that means that someone is guaranteed to get hurt.
Now sometimes I only like one of the choices, and that is fine, but: It means there is a 50% chance that someone I like, is going to get hurt. (Actually, the chances are higher than that, as characters often seem to choose the one that I don’t like.) (And I could rant about that too, but that might need another thread. 😉 )
But sometimes I like both guys. (Yes, I’m just talking about guys right now.) And more guys to like is more guys to like. But what does that mean? It means there is 100% chance of someone I like getting hurt! That is why triangles are so annoying.
So yes, I like both Neal and Hook. For different reasons, of course. I personally adore Hook. But Emma and Neal are family, and when they are together, just, awwwww. So as much as I like Hook, I hate what they did to Neal! This is the worst way to resolve a triangle, they took the easy way out and it feels like a cheat. Because no-one chose, the show completely gets around even having to decide who is right for each other. They just got rid of one, and the other sort of … happened automatically? By killing Neal, Hook wins by default, not because Emma chose him! And that is just not fair to anyone. Not to Emma, not to Hook, and obviously not to Neal.
So that is where I stand, LOL. In general, I prefer fandom love to fandom war. 😆
