If you WERE the head writer on OUAT, what changes would you have made?

phoenixfeatherquill:

Honestly, my changes would probably start in season 2.  

  • Would have written Hook differently. Closer to the book, different motivations, less of a woman abusing asshole.  
  • If A&E insisted on wanting to keep Rumple a threat, I would’ve had Rumple and Belle break up in The Crocodile.  Given Belle her own storyline.  Explored Belle outside of her love for Rumple.  Would have reunited them later.  
  • Would have continued with Cora as the main villain and not have rushed headlong into Neverland.  
  • Would have explored Rumple trying to be better for Neal, Neal not trusting him, misunderstandings ensuing.  Would have had Neal and Belle get to know each other.  
  • Would have written a healthier attraction between Hook and Emma to keep conflict between Neal and Emma—something not quite as rape culture-y.  (Swanfire would still clearly be endgame.) 
  • Would have given Regina a better redemption arc, maybe paralleled it with Rumple, both of them trying to be better for their sons.  
  • Would have had a Belle vs. Cora faceoff.  
  • Would have had a Rumbelle reconciliation after a decent redemption arc for Rumple—probably after he joins the “Save Henry” brigade.  (Which would take place later in season 3.)
  • Would have had Peter Pan the main villain for all of season 3.  I like him as a Big Bad.  Wouldn’t have killed him off so easily.  
  • Would have brought in the Wicked Witch played by Rebecca but not have named her Zelena (it is and always will be a stupid name), kept more in with Oz canon, not have made her Regina’s sister, and maybe have had her as an anti-hero, rather than an outright villain.  Maybe she had a score to settle with Pan and temporarily joins the others.  
  • Seriously, why did they kill off Peter Pan so quickly, he makes a rad villain…oh, right, A&E have an “OOH NEW SHINY TOY” problem.
  • Probably not have done “Robin Hood is Regina’s soulmate” because that was a weird idea to begin with, breaking up a legendary couple like Robin and Marian.  Maybe have played with Hook and Regina a little bit more.  Hell, maybe bring in Galahad or Gawain if A&E really wanted to do that kind of romance.  You know.  Someone SINGLE.
  • Explored more of the original characters from season 1 rather than consistently bringing in more and more new characters.  
  • Not dropped Philip, Aurora, and Mulan like a hot potato.  Possibly alluded to a polyamorous relationship between all three, considering it’s been established they all have feelings for each other.  (Most likely, anyway.)
  • Not killed off Lancelot.  Or Tamara.

Do you think that when Steve Rogers sneezes, one of the Avengers goes up to him and whispers, “God Bless America”
Then Steve fucking looks at them like this

Social skills: noticing when repetition is communication

realsocialskills:

So there’s this dynamic:

Autistic person: The door is open!

Other person: I *know* that. It’s hot in here.

Autistic person: The door is open!

Other person: I already explained to you that it’s hot in here!

Autistic person: The door is open!

Other person: Why do you have to repeat things all the time?!

Often when this happens, what’s really going on is that the autistic person is trying to communicate something, and they’re not being understood. The other person things that they are understanding and responding, and that the autistic person is just repeating the same thing over and over either for no reason or because they are being stubborn and inflexible and obnoxious and pushy.

When what’s really happening is that the autistic person is not being understood, and they are communicating using the words they have. There’s a NT social expectation that if people aren’t being understood, they should change their words and explain things differently. Sometimes autistic people aren’t capable of doing this without help.

So, if this is happening, assume it’s communication and try to figure out what’s being communicated. If you’re the one with more words, and you want the communication to happen in words, then you have to provide words that make communication possible. For example:

Other person: Do you want the door to be closed, or are you saying something else?

Autistic person: Something else

Other person: Do you want to show me something outside, or something else?

Autistic person: Something else

Other person: Are you worried about something that might happen, or something else?

Autistic person: Worried

Other person: Are you worried that something will come in, or that something will go out?

Autistic person: Baby

Other person: She’s in her crib, and the baby gate is up. Is that ok, or is there still a problem?

Autistic person: ok

ATTACKING SOMEONE FOR BEING WHITE IS NOT EQUALITY

ATTACKING SOMEONE FOR BEING STRAIGHT IS NOT EQUALITY

ATTACKING SOMEONE FOR BEING CIS OR MALE IS NOT EQUALITY

ATTACKING PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THEIR GENETICS IS NOT PROMOTING EQUALITY AND IF YOU DO IT YOU ARE LITERALLY PART OF THE PROBLEM

if I offered you $20, would you take it?

How about if I crumpled it up?

Stepped on it?

you would probably take it even though it was crumpled and stepped on it. Do you know why?

Because it is still $20, and its worth has not changed.

The same goes for you; if you have a bad day, or if something bad happens to you, you are not worthless.

if someone crumples you up or steps on you, your worth does not change. You are still just as valuable as you were before.

cosplay at its funniest

It’s funny to dress up as Muslim women and disparage another’s culture? How very classically white.

They’re…… they’re ghosts….
