Without giving the exact date, which we don’t have in front of us, we are roughly in early 2013 given that the show started in October of 2011. We’ve been more or less running in real time, including the year time jump. Because of that, the trailer for Frozen hasn’t even premiered so in the world of our show, none of the present-day Storybooke characters are aware of the Frozen mythology and universe. —Adam Horowitz to Hollywood Reporter

So… no Let it Go jokes?

Someone is going to tell Elsa to “let it go” within the first hour of this season and that someone will most likely be Regina. This show has never missed an obvious pun.

Also a 98% chance of someone asking if you wanna build a snowman.

Slightly lower chance of someone mentioning that reindeer are better than people, but probably still relevant. 

I say we play a drinking game!

Oh my God. Why have we not done this before? I will completely draw up some official drinking game rules. Of course, that’ll cause mandatory Monday rewatches because I’ll pass out if I drink every time someone makes a cold weather pun.

LOL. Yes, please come up with some rules for this. This show is so ready for a drinking game. Would it be general show stuff or only for the Frozen stuff?  :)

I’d like it to extend to the main show and characters. I’d have to be careful about it though. If we drink every time Rumple says “dearie” or Emma says “seriously” or looks stupefied about the existence of a fairytale character/creature or every time Regina sasses someone or every time Snow or Charming says “I will always find you” we will be shitfaced in the first five minutes.

Oooh but those are the best ones. LOL

I’m worried about whether I would still look professional with it. Granted I’m a graphic designer and photographer, I can get away with being quirky right?

Yes, totally fine, I think. I used to be in as similar field and I’d be walking around with Star Wars stuff all the time. :) 

I kinda want that bag too. LOL

Secret Santa 2014 Update

rumbellesecretsanta:

Hello, everyone, this is Cranky with an update about Secret Santa 2014. 3 years strong - booyah!

Some of you will note (and I’ll agree) that it’s stupidly early in the year to start talking about this, but they’ve already got Halloween decorations out in the market, and autumn is fast upon us.

There are two orders of business which I’d like community feedback on before Risk and I sit down and see what’s what.  This is an event for the Rumbelle community, and the community is the only thing that makes it good, so I think it’s important to get some participant buy-in.

Item 1: Making Anonymous Asks (Stocking Stuffers) to your Partner Mandatory 

Point A: It’s More Fun: Over the past 2 years, we’ve seen that the Asks are very often more important and more jubilant than the actual gift exchange.  And the gift exchange is pretty damn impressive.  Making Asks mandatory would guarantee that nobody misses out on the love.  My proposal is to have a 1 Ask / Week Minimum, which is not a very big commitment to keep.

Point B: It’s More Accountability: The only down-side to RSS is when we get Santas who fail to deliver.  One of the easiest ways for us to track this is when we get complaints that a Santa hasn’t sent or answered their Stocking Stuffers for a good long time, but the most we can do is go bother that person and hope for the best.  

With mandatory Asks, we might have more time to re-assign buddies when there are no-shows or real life gets in the way.  A consequence of not sending Asks 2 or 3 weeks in a row would be that we give the prompt to someone else.  It would be by report only, so if you worked out with your partner that you were going to be away from the computer on holiday or doing finals for a couple of weeks, we wouldn’t care about that.

Point C: It REQUIRES Anon Ask be Enabled: Some of you may see this as a detriment, but it makes things a lot simpler for us administratively.

Item 2: Do you want sign-ups later (around and after Thanksgiving) or earlier (around Halloween)?

Point A: Doing it all in Mid November is No Longer an Option: I’m going on holiday from November 8 - 22, and I’m not leaving the whole sign-up process to poor Piggy.

Point B: You All Procrastinate Anyway, so Let’s Wait until after American Thanksgiving: I’m not saying that a week less love is a good thing, just that it shouldn’t impact most people’s actual writing / drawing / crafting timetables.  I know this, you know this: the last-minute MAKE THE THING! posts give most of you away :P And, you know, it might be nice not to have this interrupt your jack o’lantern reblogging.

Point C: More Love For Everybody: By the same token, a week or 2 extra work and Stocking Stuffer time isn’t bad either.  More love for everybody! We also wouldn’t have to start until the usual time, which is mid-November, but could still get the sign-ups and partners (aka the hard work) done early.

Your opinion matters.  What do you think?

Does every woman flirt with him?  LOL He is so freaking cute who could resist :) LOL   She’s the reporter and she is flirting like crazy!  Check out that body language.   

Bobby exudes an animal magnetism that women find incredibly alluring and sexy. Men would give anything to be able to bottle Bobby’s pheromones

That shirt looks good on him too.

Not to mention those nice tight jeans. *fans self*

lol the whole outfit

JFC those jeans…..Bobby likes tight jeans, doesn’t he? That shirt.. drool, nice and tight, showing off his chest. Damn - I’m pretty much dying to see him bare-chested; I’d give ANYTHING for that, lol.

Aside from this, look at this bugger and his cock of the walk attitude: his head toss in the first one,  the way he holds his hands behind his back, his impish smile..and that WALK.  Bobby practically bounces along - and LOOK at the way he crosses one foot in front of the other. He KNOWS he’s hot stuff, holy cow

Those jeans……sorry, I can’t help it

I just love how shes like “oh look Bobby over there” and then just goanna really casually like slip my arm in to his. We all see what you did there, you aint fooling nobody

Bobby is as cool as a cucumber, lol - he almost expects it, lol.

I don’t care about her, honestly, lol….. I’m just focused on Bobby and his 3-D jeans, etc..

Where can one watch this??

Here it is with Italian subtitles… I thought it existed without, but here is this one. And from the same day…

And yeah, she isn’t fooling anyone. Not that I blame her. LOL.

What do you think Eddy means by "KIND OF showing Belle's pre Rumple past"?
Anonymous asked

thatravenclawbitch:

I take it you mean this quote:

We’ve seen Belle when Rumple met her. We’ve seen Belle post-Rumple but we’ve never really seen her pre-Rumple so that’s what we’re going to kind of show. We’re going to see a flashback to Belle pre-Rumple that will lead up to that and kind of explain where she gets her love of books. We’re going to see where Belle got the idea of wanting to be a hero.

I think it means exactly what it says. We’ll be seeing a flashback to Belle pre-Rumple. It might not be particularly long or involved considering it doesn’t seem like her mother is going to be in the episode much, but I think it will be something important that relates to her present day arc. I wouldn’t read too much into the use of “kind of”.

That “briefly” bit makes me think that it might not be a full on flashback to that portion of her life, but instead maybe Belle remembering or telling someone about it. The could give a glimpse of it with something like that.

It sounds like her mother might be coming back at a later date though, so who knows? Maybe we’ll see more then.

TVFanatic: Producers Preview Elsa/Emma Friendship, Captain Swan & Lots More

melissabosquez:

storybrookemirror:

TVF: Charming and Snow have a new baby so what’s their piece of the pie?

EK: We’re really excited that episode two is going to show a Charming flashback, when he was a shepherd who meets Snow White. And the baby is also going to impact their lives in different ways. Of course, they were not around to raise Emma, so they’re really like first-time parents but at the same time, this child is getting the thing that Emma never did. And I think we’re going to see Mary Margaret, Snow White, dealing with some of those issues as well as she’s going to find herself with new responsibilities in town.

TVF: Henry – and Jared Gilmore – are growing up. What’s he up to in the new episodes?

EK: We’ve seen in the past his Operation Cobra with Emma and in bringing Emma to town. We’ve seen him fight Pan and what we’re really excited about this year is he is going to help his other mother, Regina, and they’re going to have their own operation that we’re going to see launch in the premiere. Henry is also going to find himself with an after-school job. It’s not launching in the premiere, but we see it very, very quickly.

TVF: Any chance we’re seeing any old, not old faces, but friends from the past, whether it’s Rebecca Mader as the Wicked Witch or Robbie Kay as Pan? Anybody who might pop up again?

AH: We have plans that we’re not ready to divulge yet.

EK: We can tell you, you know, in the premiere, we’re going to see Giancarlo Esposito as the magic mirror, which we were really excited to see again.

[Read the rest of the article talking about Frozen’s storylines, Outlaw Queen, Captain Swan, Rumbelle, Snowing and more on TVFanatic’s site]

I think we know where Henry’s after school job is going to be!! :D :D :D Bring on the Grandpastiltskin!!!

Yes, I’m looking forward to that too!

Blu-ray Review: Once Upon a Time: The Complete Third Season

pamchenko-twist:

Came across this review of the OUAT Season 3 Blu-Ray. I especially liked these words of praise for Bobby and Emilie’s work:

Rumple’s tortured relationship with Belle (Emilie de Ravin) remains a prime focal point, with both de Ravin and Carlyle turning in some of the most incisive acting.

And this made me LOL:

But the feeling that crept into season two—that the writers are making this all up as they go along—becomes stronger throughout the shenanigans of season three.

It’s a good review/article. I agree with their take on Henry/Jared and I’m looking forward to seeing how things move along with him this season now that he’s older and the writers seem to realize that. I hope they don’t get stuck in doing 10 episodes in a really tiny space of time again because it’s tough to do that with a young actor and have it be believable.

I loved the Rumbelle shout out, especially considering they really weren’t in it that much this season. I’m all for quality over quantity but this season it was really too little, IMO.

As for the making it up as they go along. I think most shows are like that. I am cool with them having a bigger picture and needing to “make up stuff as they go along”. That’s what writing a TV show is. They can’t have every single plot thread in their head and conceive and write an entire series from the get go. They just fell short at times, but that’s true for most series. I just hope we have improvement and more balance between the characters during this upcoming season. I’m cautiously optimistic, even with all the new characters involved.
