Once Upon a Time GIP

I set aside today to work on the second draft outline of my novel. So naturally, I made fandom icons.

My girl and her boys:

Oh, and Emma/Snow

Although methinks, I'm going to avoid the outside lj fandom for now.

Eh, why bother with them when you have fan friends on your flist? I'm done immersing myself in fandom. And even when I did, I created my own little corner of the fandom world where things were more my speed (even if we didn't all obsess over the same things).

No reason to go there.

As long as you have someone to squee to, I mean.

That, too. Like, when I was looking for screen caps for my icons, I saw a really DUMB bit of fan speculation, that, if true, would make my blood boil. No. It would probably lead to me quitting the show, or thinking seriously of it. I hope it's not a spoiler, because it would basically destroy the premise of the show, IMO.

There's nothing ipso facto crazy about Regina/Hook. I think that man can have chemistry with tree stump. But I have no interest in reading meta or fic on the subject, especially by people who can't see around their 'ship.

The spec I read was regarding Henry and certain story lines that might happen in Neverland.

"Regarding Henry". *snerk*

No, it basically said that Henry is not Emma's real biological child, he is actually a lost boy from Neverland.

Which I suppose could make sense, if Henry is NOT a victim of the original curse. If he was a victim brought over 29 years ago from Neverland, and was 10 years old for 28 years (like FTL kids were), and originally a lost boy, he'd remember that now that the curse is broken and he does not appear to.

But if someone ELSE brought Henry over from Neverland eleven years ago so Regina could adopt him, you could make an argument for that.

But of course, they implied Rumplestiltskin found the child Regina adopted. Why bring a child from Neverland? In season 1, Regina pretty much accused Rumple of deliberately chosing Emma's bio-child for Regina to adopt.

Which could have happened, I suppose, if Rumple had his memory intact that long ago and did not not know Henry was also Bae's (since that came as an obvious shock to him in Manhattan).

Anyway, I'm just free-skying here. Point is, I will be irate if after all that emotional fallout from season 1 and the episode Manhattan, it turns out Henry is not Emma's biological child (or Bae's, dagnabbit!)

The one about Henry getting lost in Neverland to become Peter Pan... I suppose that's possible, given that the characters probably move through time at the same time they move through dimensions via the portals. At least, in some cases. Forex, if Bae is not Peter Pan and spent several centuries in Neverland, then he moved through both time and dimensions to get to 20th century Earth, because he seemed to have come over at the same time as Emma and August, who obviously lived several centuries after him in FTL time.

OTOH, they made a big thing about 28 years passing in the FTL between when the curse happened and when we meet Mulan et al and Emma/Snow cross back over. Like the two dimensions are in sync timewise.

Which makes NO SENSE if we've known about Snow White and Sleeping Beauty and other stories for decades or centuries.

Okay, time to not think about this show too hard.

I've been rewatching the episodes like an Obsessed Woman, and the only reference to Neverland in a Neal episode was a throw-away comment by Emma (to Neal) in Tallahassee. But that's still a "tell" on the "Doyle-ist" level (as opposed to the Watsonian level in SelenaK-talk).

In the episode where the Blue Fairy explains to Baelfire how the portal works, it's pretty much implied it will take him directly to the land without magic. Of course, that doesn't absolutely mean it's a direct route, but it's designed to get him there at some point, because the Blue Fairy isn't really a Trickster character of any kind. She wants to help him straighten out Rumplestiltskin by taking him to the land without magic.

There are a couple casual lines by Captain Hook, though, that have interesting implications. In the episode where he heads to Neverland himself, Hook tells Smee, "It's a land where I'll learn how to get my revenge on Rumplestiltskin." Also, when he faces off with Belle on his ship in Storybrooke, he says, of Rumple's son, "Who says his son wants to be found?" which is of course true (although any decently intelligent child of Rumplestiltskin could be assumed to be running away from him).

That said, I have NO doubt the storyline will take us to Neverland this season (that much is obvious), and I'm pretty sure Neal/Baelfire will have spent time there. I'm just really hoping he's not Peter Pan. That's a little TOO much to swallow for a guy who was trying to get away from magic. Peter Pan embraced that sort of thing. A lost boy, sure, I'm betting. Hook commented that Emma had the same look as the lost boys and that "abandoned by my parents" lost thing was what Emma and Neal bonded on.

But… knowing how this show loves its "mash-ups" Neal/Baelfire will probably turn out to be Peter Pan. I just hope they don't f*** it up.

Actually, I have been assuming CurrentDay!Neal is in his forties. That's assuming that he and Emma arrived on Earth around the same time, when she was an infant and he was fourteen. Which is consistent with a Neal-in-Neverland scenario, as he could have gone from FTL to Neverland, stayed there a century or two not growing a day over 14, then going to Earth. Although I'm hoping that's not how it happened.

If Rumple could arrange to have the curse send everyone to Earth, one assumes he would have the power to send them to the same year as Baelfire arrived.

I made the assumption about Baelfire and Emma arriving at the same time much earlier in the season after Tallahassee but before Manhattan. It's one of those ideas you get that just sort of sticks in your brain even after new information trickles in. There's nothing really to support it, other than the usual random bits and pieces of dialogue that support any fan theory. You pick the ones you like the best.

But hey, at least my theories don't fly in the face of all canon and logic like some fannish speculation.

In my scenario, the break down of ages if they all arrived at the same time would be Emma, aged 0, August/Pinn, age 7 (that's from the newspaper article about him "finding" Emma on the "side of the road"), and Baelfire aged 14 (from the fact it was his birthday and he was going to be drafted into the Ogre Wars).

It is now 29 years later (season 1 plus a year) so Emma is 29, August is 36 (he did arrive the same time Emma did for sure), and Neal would be 43.

Of course, that's all blue-sky math. And Emma is allowed to be older than her parents, who were probably early-mid- 20-somethings in the FTL. The actress is no 29-year old, but maybe she is and she spent too much time getting pointless suntans as a kid. That'll make a thirty-someting look 50.

Yeah, hate those people with good genes who don't look their age, lol.

Further evidence Baelfire is in his 40's: in "Tallahasee," he has dark hair. In "Manhattan," he has a lot of gray mixed in his hair.
