How Zelena’s story proves Swan Queen is endgame

So, earlier today, I talked about how Emma’s questioning and reluctance to let down her walls completely with Regina stem directly from her understanding of the relationship between Snow and Regina. However, I think we all see that Snow is watching Regina closely and seeing and starting to piece together how they both are feeling. Which, if done correctly, still has a ways to go for their complete trust and love.

Now, with the peace between Snow and Regina (which Emma has yet to learn about), the parallels between Snow and Regina keep coming. I just loved the scene where the witch (formerly Regina and now Zelena) is taunting the family member (Snow when it was Regina and Regina when it is Zelena) and the sword is thrown at and through the swirling smoke as the witch disappears.

Now, this also goes along with the earlier parallel where Zelena (originally Regina) interrupted not a wedding or reception (important to both Snow and Charming) but a reception after Neal’s funeral (which is now important to Emma and Henry and so Regina) and said almost word for word what Regina originally said.

Regina’s earlier story is being paralleled into Zelena’s story except Regina was the antagonist to Snow and Charming specifically. Now, we literally see Zelena going after Regina and Emma specifically.

And now she is going after Henry - the child of Regina and Emma. (Where Regina went after Emma - the child of Snow and Charming).

Tell me again how Swan Queen isn’t the new True Love couple?

superstuckwholockian:

I remember when I was like “…. do people ship Regina and Emma” and now I’m just thinking back and laughing at myself

This morning, I was thinking about that very moment of mine! I remember watching the first few episodes and thinking….”do people want to see them together…?”

Never been the same since.

This is fantastic.

Now I've seen the info about the sqdocumentary and maybe they do have a point in that yes lgbtq should probably be more representative in America(?) or is it the world they want to change or just American tv and media? Not so clear. I mean my country, Sweden, has pretty good representation and we're taking it to the next level and including the whole lgbtq(we're not perfect but maybe a little bit further). Right now they just seem to want to talk about themselves than anything else, really.

If they were talking about a documentary about the need for queer representation in American media I would be 200% pro this documentary.  But that’s not what it’s about.  It’s about SQ representation on the show.

However, there has been much backlash toward the Swan Queen fandom due to it connecting two women romantically on what some like to call a “family show”. Instead of fighting back with negativity, the Swan Queen Movement grew. The Movement set out to “Kill’em with kindness”. The mission was to change the perception of our rather large group by spreading messages of equality, kindness, love and inclusiveness. 

The backlash to SQ isn’t about the fact that it’s linking two women romantically.  It’s about these specific women and the reasons many people don’t want them together.  As Eddy answered, one of them is the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming and the other is the reason she grew up alone.  Regina tried to kill Emma the day she was born and many times since that.  People have many reasons other than gender that they don’t like the ship.  The biggest backlash, though, is to the SQ shippers themselves, and the bullying they do.  The BAs that call people homophobic.    The way they use offensive phrases like penis parade.  The bi erasure and hurtful things they say to other queer people who don’t share their ship.

The message I personally have gotten from the BAs in the SQ fandom has been inequality, rudeness, hate and exclusiveness. 

My biggest reason for not liking this domumentary is that I don’t want anyone to think that they are the representation of the fandom.  I get wanting your ship to happen, but crying that it’s homophobia and trying to force it to happen makes me really upset.  The idea that they sell themselves as representing the queer community and then turn around and insult anyone with a penis and hurt queer people that don’t ship SQ is insulting and hurtful.

Or maybe you could ask US instead so we can explain exactly what the documentary is about instead of speculating.

Usually this kind of commentary comes from folks that actually harbor a bit of fear towards something like this succeeding. Clearly they are willing to spend time talking about it. Only makes it that much more important.

I do fear this documentary succeeding because the SQ fandom is not representative of the LGBQTIA community.  There are many wonderful people in the SQ fandom. There are also horrible examples to people being told they are homophobic for not shipping it.  Queer people are being told that they are homophobic because of a fictional ship that is about more than gender.  I have experienced bi erasure.  I have seen hurtful phrases like penis parade used.

I have never experienced mare exclusion from the queer community than from BAs in the SQ fandom that have told people that they can’t really be lesbian if they don’t ship SQ, or that they’re self hating if they don’t ship it, or homophobic.

Queer issues and queer representation is very important, but trying to get it while hurting others in the queer community makes no sense to me.  And while I want more queer characters on TV I don’t want to continue the ‘queer as villain’ trope.  Regina is a murder/abuser and that’s why I don’t want SQ.  Nothing to do with them both being women.  

So yes, you could say I fear this suceeding.  I don’t want the world at large or the production staff at OUAT to thing that SQ shippers speak for the whole community.  And the idea of the SQ ship has been addressed multiple times by A&E.  They specifically said it’s not happening.  I don’t see the point in lying and saying it hasn’t been addressed.

Exactly, the only homophobia I have ever come across in this fandom has been from SQ shippers. (Which is not to say it doesn’t happen from others, but this is all I have seen). As a queer woman I do not like the idea of SQ shippers speaking for me. As a rape victim, I really don’t want a rapist representing me. 

If you want to make a documentary about Queer representation that is great, but don’t centre it around a ship that is not only complete fanon (and has been confirmed as not happening by the writers), but whose fans are famous for being exclusionary to queers.

If you don’t wish to participate, then don’t. Those of us that do, will. Seems simple to me. I’m afraid arguing about who or what the right kind of SQ fan is will just lead to a stalemate, because it’s up to each of us individually to decide how we participate in this fandom. All SQ fans are important and all contribute to the fandom in many lovely, creative ways and this is just one of them. You’re all important but let’s live and let live. Do what you can to make the best of SQ, but don’t tear down others in the process. Maybe do something separate that stands on it’s own showing your perspective on SQ? Maybe create something telling Adam and Eddy that you’re perfectly satisfied with SQ as it is and not to change a thing? Everyone has their own perspective.

Peace.

Saying “If you don’t wish to participate, then don’t” is like saying if you don’t like saying if you don’t like slavery just don’t participate. When someone is doing something that hurts a group of people, just standing back is not enough. 

This has nothing to do with SQ as a ship, I’m sure most SQ shippers are as disgusted as the rest of the fandom. There are lots of lovely SQ shippers out there. 

This is about a group of people who think it is OK to trivialise the very real fight queer people fight every day by using it as a tool to force the A&E to talk about their ship. As well as being offensive, that is actively harmful to the fight for queer rights. 

Queer fans are regularly queer bashed by SQ shippers. One of the people who spoke up against this was told she couldn’t be a real lesbian if she didn’t ship SQ.

If The SQM want to make a film advocating their ship that is fine, but they shouldn’t be claiming to speak for the queer community when SQ are famous for being exclusionary to anyone who isn’t a SQ shipping cis lesbian.

And seriously, let’s don’t equate a lovely bunch of fan girls and their project with slavery. That’s just in poor taste.

Have a nice evening.

I see a number of people being antagonistic & attacking fellow queers & it isn’t SWEN. But hey, who needs facts when we can attack each other & do the work of the anti-queer movement for us?

P.S. The evil queer trope is why Emma is a key factor in the pairing. Regina being saved by her love for a woman & turned good would turn the evil queer trope on its head.

This is not an attack.  It is tagged ‘anti SQ’ and if SQ shippers want to troll the anti tags to cause trouble that’s their issue.  But people are allowed to vent about things that they’re upset about.

This blog was started because of all the queer people that feel ostracized by a portion of the SQ fandom claiming to speak for the LGBQTIA community and telling other queer people that they’re wrong for not supporting a ship.  Queer people have been called homophobic and self hating.  There have been examples of bi erasure and offensive comments like ‘penis parade.’  This is a fact.  It’s not an attack, it’s people who have been hurt having a place to vent.

Of course this is not all of the SQ shippers, but it is happening and queer people are getting hurt.

You are welcome to view SQ as turning a trope on its head.  Others don’t see it that way, and are free to disagree.

I saw this on my dashboard, not in a tag, and what bothered me was that it was attacking the shippers, not just the ship.  If you don’t support the ship, fine, don’t ship it. It’s no skin off my nose.

For the record, the term “penis parade” came about because this show used to be a show about strong women, but the show has been giving so much attention and screentime to the men on the show at the expense of the women that it has basically become a different show.  It has absolutely nothing to do with shipping preferences and is simply a frustration with the lead females losing screentime and not being able to show off their acting skills.

The original post was talking very specifically about the shippers that bully and call people homophobic, not all SQ shippers.  The SQ shippers that commit bi erasure and those that claim to represent the queer community but hurt queer people with their exclusive language.   I’m sorry it came across your dash but that’s because a SQ shipper reblogged it.  It wasn’t tagged anything but anti SQ.

The blog exists both as a safe place for people to vent and a place to talk about other queer ships in the fandom because SQ is not all inclusive and there are other ships.

Your assumption right here in using ‘penis parade’ is that men have penises and women don’t.  That’s very hurtful and untrue, and a good example of why SQ represents a part of the LGBQTIA community but not nearly all of it.

People are free to ship or not ship anything.  It the fact that people are called homophobic or have their sexual identity questioned that troubles me.  And that’s why I talk about the BAs in the fandom.  Not all of fandom.

My assumption was that these particular men have penises, not that all men do. That would be ridiculous. If the term bothers you so much, how about you suggest a new one for us to use & if people like it, it’ll stick. Seriously, we’re open to suggestions.

You know, something that has always bothered me and it really doesn’t have a lot to do with this documentary or SQ, is the notion that ANY group could be all inclusive of the LGBTQA community. The very idea has always been bothersome to me. There simply is no way for one group to be inclusive of every nuance of the multitude of individuals and issues that make up all points and to put that on a group is setting them up for failure.

To me, this is true for ANY large group of people. It’s like saying, “I speak for all heterosexuals.” Or “I speak for all of humanity.” Or “I speak for all women.”

It simply isn’t possible given the nature of human beings. Every group has their own specific ideas, needs, thoughts, etc… To simply box them all in together has always been very limiting to me.

So, yes, I get that there are BAs in the SQ ‘movement’ and I get that there are homosexuals who do not ship it because of whatever reason and that’s cool because every one is different and that’s what makes this world so amazing. I think the very notion of saying people who ship SQ are representative of the LGBTQA community is damaging and limited. No, they aren’t. No one group can be.

Thank you sweetheart.  This is exactly how I feel.  There is nothing wrong with SQ being a representative of the LGBQTIA community.  They simply aren’t ‘the’ representative.  It’s a diverse community, so no one ship can define it.  

Exactly!

And I see both points here. I don’t think SQ fans supporting or producing this documentary are saying they are representative of the LGBTQA community, at least I haven’t seen that from the people I interact with, but that doesn’t mean that some within the fandom aren’t saying that. I’m sure they are - as is within all fandoms.

But, it is necessary to point out that they aren’t the representative.

On the flip side, I completely understand the fear and backlash against it as, like I said, NO group can say they speak for everyone and there are plenty of people within the LGBTQA community that hate the idea of SQ for whatever their personal reasons are and they are afraid that this is going to point to being a representative of them and it most certainly isn’t.

I think representation of any kind is good AS LONG AS it is clear that it isn’t THE definitive for the whole. That just isn’t possible and given the limitations of these characters (any characters, really) it wouldn’t be possible anyway.

Has it been considered to actually include people in this documentary who don’t ship SQ but are members of the community and ship other ships (Red Beauty/Sleeping Warrior/FairyQueen/RedSwan or others) so that it becomes a fair representation and cannot be marginalized? Or is this documentary actually about SQ fans?

Just my thoughts.

You know what? I’m still pissed at Emma saying ‘I’m guessing this is where your help ends’

WHAT.THE.ACTUAL.FUCK?!

Mary Margaret’s not making sense Emma? YOUR NOT MAKING SENSE!

We have been getting so much SQ fluff lately, then Emma says something like that?

She knows Regina will do anything to…

Totally agree with you! And the most frustrating thing is that Jane freaking Espenson wrote this episode!! I mean, was that some deliberate choice on her end, or just sloppy writing? It rubs me the wrong way, just like when Emma was in the Enchanted Forest with Mary Margaret and out of nowhere says, “I blame Regina.” Or her cruelty toward Regina in the well scene (can’t remember the episode), OR when she told Regina outside the diner that she wasn’t sure having Henry spend more time with her was a good idea. Like, what in the actual fuck?! They make so much progress toward having a friendship, mutual respect and trust, and then they have Emma showing distrust again, seemingly out of nowhere. It’s bullshit!!

Either it is sloppy writing or that line shows how Emma still hasn’t shaken all her insecurities and (given her past) still has trust issues.

I said it before somewhere:

"I’ve worked with foster children, who were really similar to Emma - walls up, trust issues, attachment issues etc. You could prove to those children a hundred times over (by your actions and words) that they could trust you, that you cared for them deeply, that you would not abandon or betray them … HOWEVER, when put under stress or when facing challenges a lot of these kids would go back to what they knew, walls back up, and question you and your promises.

Therefore I think that line is not Emma REALLY mistrusting Regina, but her insecurities shining through. By (sarcastically) stating that Regina surely won’t help anymore and go back to being a bad guy, Emma is actually seeking Regina’s reassurance that the contrary is (still) true. Only, she cannot ask for that reassurance directly, because that would have made her (more) vulnerable when she already felt anxious.”

that’s the only way I can make sense of that line (and others) which seemed OOC for Emma and really a step backwards.

Sounds good to me evilsnowswan.

That seems very true especially if we go with the idea that Regina is the one that Emma trusts the most. She wouldn’t say this to Hook or Snow or Charming because she isn’t invested with her heart there. Regina is much more of a problematic story to her because of her feelings and so therefore, Emma is rallying around the notion that she could back off because she is afraid of how she feels.

Now I've seen the info about the sqdocumentary and maybe they do have a point in that yes lgbtq should probably be more representative in America(?) or is it the world they want to change or just American tv and media? Not so clear. I mean my country, Sweden, has pretty good representation and we're taking it to the next level and including the whole lgbtq(we're not perfect but maybe a little bit further). Right now they just seem to want to talk about themselves than anything else, really.

You were saying big mouth? Abcs report claims that they're more than happy that once upon a time was the highest rated show of the night. You clearly don't understand rating or else you would realize what matters is the ratings specifically 18-49 slot. Total number of viewers means shit. So come up with a better argument next time dumbass.

Just a pro-tip, though: you might want to use proper grammar the next time you call a seventeen-year-old that is in college and has been writing for a worldwide publication for over six years, a dumbass. 

Anyways, would you mind citing your sources about ABC being happy about being the highest rated show on Easter? Because all I’m finding in my double check is even more articles pointing out that it dropped by 17% in the very demographic you mentioned- which happened to also be what I was referring to in my original post. It’s really not surprising that they had the most viewers of the night, considering that they aired it on a night when most other shows had reruns or Easter specials. And yes, a 1.7 is the very lowest rank that Once has ever gotten in the 18-49. A whole .3 below last week’s episode. And can you explain the 200,000 viewers turning it off about thirty minutes in? What, they took time out of their Easter festivities to watch OUAT but became busy again halfway through? Or, maybe they didn’t like what was going on in the episode.

I’m assuming you’re getting all defensive about these admittedly horrible ratings because of a post I made pointing out the crazy coincidence that the episode publicized to contain an Outlaw Queen kiss got the worst ratings that the show has ever had in three seasons? I’m assuming you ship them.

I know how it feels to be insecure with your ship, but it’ll be okay. While Sean possibly isn’t coming back next season, Maid Marion’s coming back, and Outlaw Queen increasingly parallels the relationship between Cora and the gardener, I’m sure you guys are going to be fine.

I mean, I want to hug you.
