I’m still ugly sobbing over Rumpelstiltskin’s continuity.
“It was a brief flicker of light amidst an ocean of darkness.”
“Love is like a delicate flame and once it’s gone, it’s gone forever.”
“Love doesn’t always last forever.”
“That’s the thing about true love, dearie, it can slip through your fingers.”
And since that’s not enough:
“It must be protected at all costs.” vs. “Oh yes-yes, I’ll protect you.”
#And then there’s that little tidbit #’The only magic powerful enough to break any curse’ #’KISS ME AGAIN IT’S WORKING’ #’ANY CURSE CAN BE BROKEN’ #So apparently Rumpelstiltskin embraced the idea of true love being the cure for a diseased soul #which means he realized what Belle was trying to do #what she DID #and what he could have had #with her #only after she was gone. #Because he was counting on Bae’s love to break his curse he did not expect True Love #just the love of his boy #and the fact someone else loved him freely #willingly #without expecting anything in return #even after he took everything from her #was improbable #so he sees the True Love for Snowing and what does he do? #he ensures they get the happy ending he denied himself #but more importantly the happy ending he denied Belle not once but twice #the one person he knew who deserved a happy ending more than anyone else #and what happened? #She died.
