I swear I am not obsessed with Peter Pan in OUAT.
……..
Well, maybe a little bit X3
Today’s Robbie Kay’s birthday so let’s celebrate it by posting here some fanarts!!

Because everybody knows that “Peter Pan never fails”!!

I'm sick and tired of fandoms treating lady characters like they're beautiful goddesses who can do no wrong, when in reality they're sometimes downright terrible. Being strong and female doesn't automatically make you a flawless human being, and it certainly doesn't detract from a character's bad side. Tired of seeing female characters get away with literal murder because of their sad backstory and their gender. This also applies to male characters, but dear god.

Anon post from an alternate reality in which female characters are not widely reviled by fandoms while male characters are the ones that are usually given passes.

Because as far as I could tell last night, even though Regina was tempted to go after Marian, she didn’t AND she had the perfect opportunity to just let Marian die. Everyone was knocked out cold, no one even knew she was there and could have saved Marian. She could…

Regina haters, like Hook haters, tend to be very, very, VERY selective about what facets of the characters they choose to acknowledge. Regina, of her own free will, chose to do two things that the old Evil Queen Regina would never have done (not kill someone who’s in the way of her happiness, and not even refuse to save that very person when her life was in danger). And yet cries of “she hasn’t changed/developed/undergone any redemption arc at all!” still persist. 

People will also jump all over the scene between Evil Queen!Regina and Marian as a newly revealed heinous moment for Regina, completely overlooking that that was the entire point since even Regina was mortified at seeing herself in the past and hearing Marian’s words to her that weren’t far from the truth at all. That was probably her best moment in the episode, and I’d direct people who still insist she has no regrets to this scene. It could be argued that it’s more regret for herself than on the behalf of her victim, but that’s still regret all the same.

All this still doesn’t excuse the poor execution of Regina’s plot in the episode though, and nothing has made up for the horrifyingly stupid and immature courses of action she’s decided to take. 

Screw writing strong women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people.”
