You made me stronger.
You made me stronger.
Rumbelle in 3x10: The New Neverland
Remember when they were reunited for (1 single) episode and literally the only thing they did the whole episode was wear matchy-matchy color coordinated couple outfits and walk arm-in-arm around town and say cutesy adoring shit to each other
What the fuck does Rumplestiltskin think he’s doing popping out of nowhere and laughing like a fucking lunatic and making deals with people and messing the fuck around with their lives and dancing around like a motherfucking leprechaun? Christ, I think I’m in love.
Most of the problems in OUAT could have been resolved instantly if Baelfire had just given his dad a goodnight kiss.
Don Juan was nothing before he made his deal with me!
#look at this curly-haired sparkly demigod #three hundred year old wizard still rocking those leather pants #dropping pick-up lines like candy #flirting his way through four generations of the same family #(accidentally his own family) #on his way to steal your baby #and your girl if she’s a fierce brunette #go get ‘em tiger
Roddy McDowall :: The Seven Deadly Virtues :: (You’ll never find a virtue unstatusing my quo/ or making my Beelzebubble burst/ Let others take the high road/ I will take the low/ I cannot wait to rush in/ where angels fear to go)
Faun :: Rhiannon ::
The Scarring Party :: Anywhere :: (It’s a beautiful world if you’ve been lied to/ by parents and priests/ the vain and the tired/ somehow we live here/ this Babel of flesh/ every man standing on another man’s back/ Let this be a call to arms/ at the changing of the avant-garde/ Nothing in this world is beautiful/ anywhere ever)
Karsh Kale :: Home :: (These lights are all going out/ one by one/ everyone is going to bed/ one by one/ drop everything/ and come to me/ come to me/ come to me)
D. Sardy feat. Liela Moss :: Giant :: (Love got carried away/ When did it ever promise to stay?/ Don’t play foolish whatever you do/ Don’t ignore this whatever you do)
Tom Waits :: Russian Dance ::
Matthew Herbert :: A Penny At A Time :: (I want to drink from the clearest waters/ I want to have all the things I want to/ I just want what I want/ I feel stronger now)
This has been part of my Rumple playlist for more than a year and still every time The Seven Deadly Virtues starts up I yell because it’s just nuts how exactly right it is. Every single lyric is perfect, down to exactly how he describes each virtue in turn, and the degree of derisiveness about each of them. He’s super scathing about Humility, but Diligence is just “a fate I would hate” - he is diligent, and it is a fate he hates. It’s perfectly in character for all of them.
I remember some reviewer or other described Rumple as having this tension to him like you expect him to start dancing and singing a show tune at any moment and you wish he’d just do it already. This has to be the song he’d start singing. 100% sure.
Doing an obnoxious rewatch of OUAT during the hiatus.
Gave myself some fill-in-the-color homework:
