Honestly, I’m can’t believe actually wanting to see someone take a stab at making some fan-made Magic: The Gathering cards. Even if it’s purely for humor purposes. This could be because, along with OUAT, I’m missing a few of my MtG pals. I need a fix of both, lol.[adrotate group="5"]
I was just rewatching part of “The Return” and Bae’s conversation with Morraine was touched on at the beginning of the thread, but one part really stood out to me that hasn’t been mentioned here. Here is an excerpt from their talk:
Reul Ghorm is an ancient being that rules the night, the original power.
The part of her being one that “rules the night” isn’t something I really noticed before. I remembered her being the original power, but to me something associated with night is usually considered shady, evil, or bad. Daylight is good and strong. At least, to me that’s my association. I wonder why they included that phrase. Is that a clue that she isn’t all that wonderful?
The only possible connection I can think of is the character of the Queen of the Night from The Magic Flute which shares many concepts with fairy tales. Just looking at various descriptions of its characters you can see similarities in those of OUAT.
Just a quick question on the “physical” location of Storybrooke – Was it ever made clear if Storybrooke was a coastal town or is on a lake or river? I know it’s a bit of a trivial question but sometimes I’m a stickler for details – as in they get stuck in my head until I sort them out, lol. I know Storybrooke has a dock and marine garage, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s coastal. I live near a man-made lake/reservoir that spans three counties. I just wish that part of the town’s locale had been made clearer.June 10, 2012 at 5:21 am in reply to: Fairytale characters and actors to play them suggestions for #148541
I’d like to see the Green Fisherman from the actual Pinocchio story. Maybe the writers can give him a legitimate beef with the Blue Fairy or something.
I can imagine him trailing along behind other characters, picking up the objects they leave behind. “Rumple’s Salvage Service: for a litter -free Fairytale Land.”
As soon as I read this, I imagined Rumpel as being similar to the character of Leland Gaunt in Needful Things. A mysterious stranger riding into town with trinkets to match any person’s desire…in return for some mischief and the price of their soul.
Yeah, but why didn’t Daniel and Regina make a deal with Cora: you use your magic or influence to give Daniel some royal position and then let us marry. Everybody wins.
Because the royal position would have to come from somewhere. Regina’s family isn’t royalty. Cora was the daughter of a miller and, unless stated, Henry isn’t royalty. I don’t even think Regina’s family is of noble blood, again unless stated otherwise for Henry. Wealthy – yes, but royal or noble – no. She’s not like the Genie who made Aladdin a prince and gave him riches, an entourage, and apparently a kingdom. (At least, in the Disney version.) Even Rumple didn’t make Cinderella a princess, he just prettied her up. So, yeah, Daniel was a stable boy, whereas Leopold was king.
Furthermore, Regina says to Snow that the apple wouldn’t kill her, just make her look like she was dead, but her mind still intact. I can’t remember the exact words. She says so in An Apple Red as Blood.
Basically, Regina tells Snow that eating the apple would not cause her to die but fall into a deep sleep where her dreams would be filled with every regret in her life.
I think it’s more than just the mirror given to Regina by the Genie. In magic, mirrors and other reflective surfaces are supposedly a means of divination, precognition, and in some cases transportation. So, however one acquires magic in the Enchanted Forest, a magic user would be able to use a mirror to see other places. Though not yet shown, Rumpel may be able to do this as well, however, at the same time he is not able to shield himself from Regina viewing him, as seen in ‘Skin Deep’ where Rumpel has his mirrors covered.
That’s how I feel about it. Until I read the interviews, I thought that’s how it was all along.
