#really confused about the fact no other woman in town has realised he’s so attractive
This is hilarious! Thank you ErinG46 for finding this and tweeting it!
Now I want to make one of my own! LOL
I laughed for about five minutes at this.
“Belle refused to marry me if I didn’t do this.” Love it.
I like ‘I was lonely’ the best.
I feel: “better now”. :)
I never intended to “get arrested” oh god
This may be my favorite moment in the episode (at the moment, anyway). Because it’s both of them giving the other what they most want — he’s giving her the chance to be a hero while simultaneously trying to keep her safe, and she’s giving him an assurance that his son loves him while simultaneously trying to give him a reason to keep living. They’re each very selfless in their own ways, and they know each other better than anyone else, so even a painful goodbye is filled with some very noble beauty.
Mr. Gold to Belle (via superedel)
|Belle:||"What, no I want to go. I can help you!"|
|Rumple:||"Oh this ship we have Hook, who hit you when you were locked away, tried to kill you, pointed a gun at you, and then actually shot you and made you lose your memories."|
|Rumple:||"Also coming along is Regina, who is the reason you were locked away for about thirty years, who did god knows what to you, and told me you were dead."|
|Rumple:||"You are the smartest woman I know, but you have no combat skills, you don't use magic, and we're going to a place where someone I, the Dark One, fear is pretty much king."|
|Rumple:||"I have made many enemies in many lands over the past three hundred years. Having you along will be like painting a target on your forehead."|
|Rumple:||"I love you. You're staying right here."|
Like it is actually just completely out of character for Mr. Gold to care about Storybrooke’s safety to the extent where he would part himself from Belle??

on the other side of The Scale of Decision Making » Peasants Being Safe??
the scale is going to look like a 2 ton weight is one side GUESS WHICH SIDE
Pairing: Belle/Mr Gold|Rumpelstiltskin
Summary: It’s just another day in the Gold household. Almost.

Notes: A sequel to Plain Jane.
Her wedding ring catches the grey morning light as she moves her hand, glinting dully. It’s almost a surprise to see it on her finger. She hardly ever notices that it’s there. She hadn’t even remembered it last night, when she was contemplating her reflection in the mirror and flinging hairpins right and left. It hadn’t occurred to her that maybe it was her wedding ring that she should have been flinging.
Jane holds her hand up and considers the ring: it’s nothing special or eye-catching; just a plain band of gold. Gold for Gold. It’s a poor joke, and not one that anyone’s ever dared make in her hearing. It’s true, though. Her husband likes using gold as a mark of ownership, whether it’s the handle of his favourite cane, or the gilded vases back at the house that never hold flowers, or his wife’s wedding ring.
She puts her hand down on the edge of the desk without removing the ring, and is aware that that’s a conscious decision, though she’s not entirely sure what the decision means. Maybe it isn’t about wearing the ring but about not taking it off. For now.
I’ve been so curious to read how this fic would handle scenes with more characters than the two principle ones, and yes. Perfect. This was exactly right, I really appreciate how deftly they all were handled. (I loved the descriptions of Whale’s smile, too, it actually made me look at David Anders’ acting in a whole new light.)
I shuddered at the second ‘my dear’. It just thrills me that you can take such an ordinary thing as a pet name and give it so much overtone to the point where a reader can have a physical reaction, just like everything in this fic - ordinary objects and ordinary occurrences that would normally be completely humdrum seem so meaningful and emotionally charged from Jane’s POV. She might be Plain Jane, but her POV turns the normal world around her into a rich and arresting place. She is such a joy, and I feel for her so much, I just want to cuddle her and give her a day off.
Also - Sock Sex in blatant view of other characters, multiple times?? This fic is getting unspeakably racy…
in which Belle and Rumple come to an understanding (eventually)
|Gold:||I’m bringing sexy back.|
|Belle:||Can you get some milk while you’re out?|
Mr. Gold was doing so well at just automatically doing good. When Mr. Gold thought that Keith was sexually assaulting the woman he loved, his only and automatic reaction was to pull Keith off her and… yell at him to go away.
