I’m not talking about my magic, I’m talking about OUR magic
— Regina Mills- outstanding heterosexual (via megan-8)
The arguments for my ship have been made very eloquently by many before me, but I’ll add this. Swan Queen is not only smart and inventive, its respectful. It respects Emma and Regina as complicated individuals with difficult pasts. it respects them as woman with their own minds. It respects them as mothers. it acknowledges out of the gate that - if they determine that they want any partner at all - both deserve someone who will respect their struggle, support their desire to change for the better and to be a better mother to Henry, to help them grow as a person, find peace in themselves… and it allows them to not be used as a device to help rewrite their partner’s past indiscretions against them, or just look really hot on their leather-clad arm.
