Once Upon a Time to-do list

Thought on last night's Once Upon A Time, ep 2.16, The Miller's Daughter, here.

Now a more general musing: we've seen the Enchanted Forest, Wonderland, and B-movie Monster land. Other places that have left promissory notes by the writers:

- Neverland (multiple references, very recent ones)
- Inside-the-Computer world (Tron "space paranoids" reference in What Happened to Frederick)
- The Land of Oz (flying monkeys pics in the OUAT book)
- 1001 Nights (sort of implied with the genie in Fruit of the Poisonous Tree)
- A galaxy far, far away (Star Wars theme ring tone on Mr. Mendell's phone) [Although I seriously hope they don't do this one. Some things are sacred. Or should be.]
- Camelot (Lancelot appearance)

Not sure if all of these are doable due to copyright considerations, but then again, I suspect Disney holds the copyright to most of them, or they're long past falling into the public domain, so maybe they are.

Oh, now, that just gave me an idea. I wonder whether, if Rumpel had gone with Bael, they would've gone straight to our world, but because Bael went through alone, the magic that attracts boys who lost their parents to Neverland from the original story "took effect" and redirected him.

That is an interesting idea. I mean, how did the original Lost Boys in the tale get lost to begin with? I think there was some metaphory thing about them running loose on the streets of London and disappearing off society's radar literally and literarily.

There is a scene in the first season episode where the Blue Fairy instructs Baelfire about the magical bean, saying he "must follow it wherever it leads." The promise was it would take him to the land without magic, but she never says its a direct route. What she sounds like she's saying is its a journey he needs to take.
