10 reasons Emma Swan rocks



1. She can match wits with Rumple-f***ing-stiltskin, any time, any day.
2. Have you see her arms? Those are... good arms to have.
3. She's chained up/tied up Captain Hook Four Times. FOUR.
4. She only lied to her son once. And learned her lesson the first time.
5. Emma drinking game everytime she says, "Really?"
6. "You left me and let me go to prison because Pinocchio told you to?" 'Nuf said.
7. She has sizzling on-screen chemistry with every youngish adult male on the show: the Huntsman, Pinocchio, the Mad Hatter, Captain Hook, Baelfire.... And the Evil Queen, too, really. Every one of them. (Except David Nolan. Which under the circumstances, is probably a good thing). It makes for one seriously weird love-life, though.
8. She brings a gun to a sword fight. But uses the sword when it's the smart thing to do.
9. She can nail a bail-jumper in three inch heels. (So you know that in more practical shoes, her ex-boyfriend didn't have a prayer.)
10. She made friends with the giant who had access to the very last magic portal beans. (Gosh, Rumplestiltskin, if you'd just been a nicer guy, you so totally could have asked the giants instead of manipulating the world's longest and most convulted con).



And one reason LJ doesn't rock: my comment notifications were going into my Spam folder. After ten years. Whut.

Emma saying "Really?" is one of the great joys of the show. And all your reasons are very true. To which I'd add:

11. She is great in calming down centuries old sociopaths the first time said sociopaths are using an air plane, thus preventing freakouts, violence by cane and other melodramatics.

12. Her bonding time with her mother consists of questing and saving the day(s) together

13. She doesn't want to get elected on fake heroics and tells voters the truth...

14. ...and then is able to figure out the double set up by Rumpelstilskin anyway.

The ways in which Emma+Snow are Awesome Together would require its own List. But you have a good start here. Also need a Ways Rumplestiltskin has Met his Match list. As Regina says, "You didn't pick a great friend Family!NOW in Mr. Gold, Miss Swan, but he does make a superlative enemy!"

Yes, I love that when she becomes Sheriff of the town, she's actually qualified by natural talent and backstory.

Although I do get a bit irritated with her dad taking over the position in the blink of an eye. The man needs to put on the deputy's badge already.

I think the writers are trying to make up for David Nolan being a spineless dork in season 1, but really--let him run for mayor or something.

Those are wonderful reasons, and I agree wholeheartedly. (I wandered from selenak)
