Once Upon a Time…There Was Magic(k)

WARNING!!! THIS IS A FAN BASED MILD RANT ON THE USE OF MAGICK IN THE “ONCE UPON A TIME” UNIVERSE/SERIES. IF YOU DON’T WISH TO READ THIS SORT OF THING, YOU HAVE BEEN DUELY WARNED AND YOU CAN READ AT YOUR OWN RISK HENCEFORTH. 😉

Some of you may know (if you follow my Twitter at all) that I am a fan of the show “Once Upon a Time”. I have been a fan since the start and throughout the series I have either completely -loved- the retelling of some of the classic fairytales, have been undecided or absolutely scrunched up my nose at others (where Dwarves come from? *shudders*)

Today I’m talking about one of those things I scrunch my nose up at, more specifically something that -bugs- me -most- since the beginning of this series. I have noticed a trend that the only beings with magic are the Faeries and the “Evil Villains”. *SPOILER ALERT, DO NOT READ NEXT LINE IF YOU DON’T WANT A SPOILER!*

Despite the fact that the “Savior” Emma we come to find out has “Magick” running through her veins, she is only one of the two seemingly good forces I have seen in the show (The good witches of Wizard of Oz storyline not quite counting since they aren’t from the Enchanted Forest, we are talking about Enchanted Forest Folks, not folks from other worlds within Once).

It’s a bit “irk-some” to see this since there is nothing anywhere that says there could be more folks who have learned magic in order to harness it for “Good”. Emma more or less being the only one (beside Faeries), is just not enough for someone like me.

This is a response topic to that of Bex, The Savvy Seniorita, posted on her site. She had noticed that some people were being nominated for blog awards (before she got one) and that these awards would ask the people to tell others 7 things about themselves. In this instance she wants people to post 7 things that are about their personal beliefs. I noticed I have some of the same beliefs as her, though I think I’ll re-name them.

1) True Love:

Not to be confused with, “To Blaaaave” which means to BLUFF!. 😉 I have ALWAYS believed in this seeming intangible thing long before I saw such things as; The Princess Bride. It’s hard to describe and yet also that mutually healthy relationship we all dream of having with acceptance, tolerance, unconditional love ever abundantly flowing, respect and so much more. You can think me naïve and a fool but I don’t care. It’s something I have believed in and always will because it is a beautiful thing! More
