Countdown to Once Upon a Time – Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold

https://i2.wp.com/img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130226201618/onceuponatime8042/images/4/4a/106Rumple1.jpg

 

When I first began watching OUAT, one of the characters I was the most interested in seeing was Rumplestiltskin, better known as Rumple to viewers and to his lady love, Belle. Going by the name of “Mr. Gold” in Storybrooke, Rumple is a true enigma, and one of the best anti-hero and sometimes villain/hero ever created. Played with charm, wit, and fun by Robert Carlyle, he has become one of the shows most loved characters!

Name(s): Rumplestiltskin, Mr. Gold, Rumple, Dark One.

Characteristics: Witty, devious, sometimes selfish, likes making deals with people, a bit of a coward at times.

Why do I like this character?: How is one to describe how much you like Rumplestiltskin? 😀 To start, his backstory. One of the most heartbreaking stories of the show, Rumple’s life is a sad story, as Gandalf might say. Abandoned by his father in exchange for eternal youth (and fantastic eyebrows), Rumple was raised by a pair of spinsters. Later marrying Milah, he went to fight in the Ogre Wars with pride, refusing to be a coward like his father. But before a battle, he met a seer, who prophesied that his actions on the battlefield would leave his unborn child fatherless. Thus, Rumple injures himself so that he can go home, but is greeted by a bitter Milah, who (rightfully) calls him a coward. They raise their son, but their relationship is never the same. Sad, right? And that’s only part of it. He loses his son to his own cowardice, and his wife, later killing her in rage. He devotes his life to finding his son, eventually creating the curse that creates Storybrooke. He falls in love, only to lose her to his selfishness. I guess what makes me like Rumple in all of this is that he truly regrets the things he did, letting go of his son, killing his wife. His story makes me cry, because at his heart, all Rumple wants is to be loved. He loses everything that is important to him. I also enjoy his witty one liners, which are some of the best in the show, and his personality. While he can be a bit weird at first, as the show goes on you can’t help but love him.

Why do I dislike this character?: Obviously, he has a habit of being selfish, though he is learning to put it aside more and more as the show goes on. And I was sooooo mad at him in the season 3 finale for lying to Belle and doing exactly WHAT HE PROMISED HER HE WOULDN’T DO!!!!!!! Since he is an anti-hero, inconsistency is to be expected, but throughout the first season I got SO frustrated. He was constantly “shifting loyalties”, though it becomes obvious that he only helps the people he does because it furthers his own cause.

Favorite quotes (there are a LOT this time, had trouble choosing just a few): “I’m not walking in there with nothing but my good looks.”

Charming: “You loved someone?” Rumple: “It was a brief flicker of light amidst an ocean of darkness.”

“So brave, so gallant, so pointless. Bravery won’t get you out of this forest dearie!”

David: “If anything happens to them…” Mr. Gold: “Then you’ll what? Cross the town line and David Nolan will hunt me down in his animal rescue van?”

“All magic comes with a price!”

“The place was filthy.”

“So long as you live in the past, you’ll never find your future.”

“When they say I charge an arm and a leg, that’s meant to be a figure of speech.”

And the best of them all (I cry EVERY TIME): “Belle, when we met, I wasn’t just unloved, and unloving, I was an enemy of love. Love had only brought me pain. My walls were up, but you broke them down. You brought me home. You brought light to my life and chased away all the darkness. And I vow to you, I will never forget the distance between what I was and what I am. I owe more to you than I can ever say. How you can see the man behind the monster, I will never know.”

Other thoughts: I am interested in seeing how Rumple handles married life, and how long he will be able to keep his secret. I am also worried though, because it appears that Rumple and Hook will start up their old rivalry again, so there is always a chance that Hook could die (NOOOOOOOOO). But I am thrilled as well, because we have been told by producers that Henry will begin bonding with Rumple, even getting a job at the pawnshop. (I have a feeling it is going to be adorable).

Countdown to Once Upon a Time – Emma

Emma Swan

Name: Emma Swan

Characteristics: Skeptical, strong-willed, brave, fights for what she believes in, has trouble trusting others, especially men.

Why do I like this character?: Emma is the main protagonist of the show, so it stands to reason that one would like her. I love how quickly she comes to love Henry, even though she thinks he is a little crazy. Her willingness to fight for what she knows is right is another thing that draws me to her character, though she often uses somewhat… illegal, means to do it, at least in the first season. Her spunk and courage is definitely something that makes me love her!

Why do I dislike this character?: In the first season, she is so desperate to defeat Regina that she turns to illegal methods to do it, though she later regrets it. I also strongly dislike her habit of cussing. The fact that she mistrusts all men so much actually becomes obnoxious. Several men come and go throughout the show, and her unwillingness to trust them often leads to their demise. (*cough* Graham and August *cough*)

Favorite quotes: “People are going to tell you who you are your whole life. You just got to punch back and say: ‘no, this is who I am’. You want people to look at you differently? Make them. If you want to change things, you’re going to have to go out and change them yourself, because there are no fairy godmothers in this world.”

“Maybe I don’t need answers. Maybe I just need to punch you in the face.”

“I climbed a beanstalk for this. You go get your own!”

“The only impression I’m worried about is the one this corset is making on my spleen.”

Other thoughts: I am really excited to see what happens now that Emma has found her true love! ❤ AWWWW! I know that it won’t be an easy journey for her and Killian, but I also know that they are both strong. I am also looking forward to seeing how her and Henry’s relationship changes as he gets older.

Countdown to Once Upon a Time – Peter Pan

ouat-peter-pan-stabbed-featured

Now, before I begin this character analysis, I need to make the uninformed person aware of a basic fact. If you haven’t watched the show, and don’t want it spoiled, read on at your own risk.

In OUAT, Peter Pan is evil . Not an anti-hero, not even just a bad guy. He is, as Captain Hook said in the show, “A demon”. Peter Pan is one of the few villains in any book, movie, or TV show who has legitimately scared me. And I don’t scare easily when it comes to villains, so that says a lot. I actually had trouble getting to sleep in the darkness of my bedroom after I watched the episodes with him.

Name: Peter Pan

Characteristics: Witty, smart, likes to “play games”, devious, thinks himself more intelligent than anyone else.

Why do I like this character?: Well… I guess I appreciate that he is so well acted. Like I said earlier, I DO NOT get scared of most villains in fiction, whether on screen or in a book. But Peter Pan was so well acted that he scared me. And I must say that I loved his little sarcastic one liners to various characters. And, one must confess that he is a bit attractive. 😛

Why do I dislike this character?: Outside of the obvious: “HE’S SO STINKIN’ EVIL!”, I find that his tendency to smirk and act as if everyone is beneath him is more than a little obnoxious. I also despise him because of what he did to his son, and the fact that he has NO regret in him whatsoever.

Favorite quotes: Hook: “She’s finally starting to see me as the man I truly am.” Pan: “What? A one handed pirate with a drinking problem?” (Remember those one liners I mentioned? xD)

“Because I’m Peter Pan… And Peter Pan never fails.”

“You here to pwotect your woved ones?” (and yes, I typed it like that because that’s how he says it)

“Well if you won’t eat it then I will.”

Other thoughts: We all know that OUAT has a pretty crazy family tree, so I will explain where Pan fits. Pan is Rumplestiltskin’s father, Neal/Baelfire’s grandfather, and Henry’s great-grandfather. Make sense now? xD And while Pan was freaky, I do almost miss him. Zelena(The Wicked Witch) seemed tame compared to him. I do hope that he might come back sometime! 🙂

Thought For the Week – Dealing With Hurt

https://thelifeofanerdygirl.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/01b7b-2494805202_ff923c4749.jpg

How many of us have had an adult say something along these lines to us? “You are so young, you really have no idea what it means to truly be hurt by someone.” Well, I don’t know about you, but I would care to differ on that. In my 17 years of existence on this spinning ball we call earth, I have experienced my share of hurt, loss, betrayal, and heartache. I have lost relatives whom I loved dearly, I have been picked on and bullied by the very people who you would expect to show love, and I have been betrayed by my friends. And when young people go through these type of things, it can often be hard to discern what the correct response to the pain is. Do we numb ourselves and bottle up our feelings? Do we take out our pain on everyone else, even God? If someone hurt us, do we confront that person? And do we allow that experience to scar us? There is no easy answer to these questions. But there are a few things I do know, things to do when you are hurting.

  • Talk to God. He knows the pain you are experiencing, and He wants to comfort you through it. If you are angry at Him, tell Him so. He wants you to do as the Bible says and “cast your cares upon Him, for He cares for you.” Often times when we go through pain, we have a habit of blaming God. I have known people who were hurt by Christians, in a church setting, and allowed that to change the way they viewed God. They turned their backs on Him and had a hatred for everything that a Christian stands for. But we should NEVER do this. By turning our backs on the One who understands our pain, we are leaving behind the greatest source of comfort and hope that will ever be.
  • Don’t hide your feelings. Doing this is a great mistake, and it can cause us to become bitter, numb, and angry. Even if you don’t want to share with everyone you know, it is a good idea to share with someone. Your parents, a sibling, a best friend, even a trusted adult. Hiding your feelings will cause you more pain in the end, and not always just for you. If you are going through something in your life, experiencing feelings that no one else knows about, it can hurt those closest to you to discover that you hid it from them.
  • Don’t take it out on others. While it is GOOD to share your feelings and pain with others, NEVER take out your pain on other people. This is something I have to work on often. When I am hurting, I have a habit of becoming easily frustrated with my family, often shouting at them or making snarky comments. This can hurt you and the people around you. When you are going through pain, always remember that the pain and hurt does not control you. God gave us control over our emotions, and He expects us to use that gift. Again, this is where it is good to talk it out with God.
  • If you have been hurt by a family member, friend, or other person, don’t immediately confront them. Give yourself time to think. If the first thing you do, in the midst of your pain, is confront them with anger and high emotions, chances are you will end up hurting them and hurting yourself more. Take time to think about the right time, place, and way to confront them, and definitely consider what you are going to say. Again, talk to God, asking Him to give you a Spirit of forgiveness and grace, even though that person may have hurt you. And take time to see that person’s side too. Many times, broken relationships are the result of a misunderstanding or lack of proper communication. Which leads me to my last point…
  • If you have been hurt by someone, be careful of the medium you use to confront them. Many people, myself included, find it so much easier to express how they feel in the written word. Sadly, too many people use the written word to convey how they feel to someone who has hurt them, which often leads to misunderstanding. Written communications take away the nonverbal things that are needed in a conversation, such as body language, facial expressions, tone, etc. This is why it is wiser to talk to someone in person, where the full range of communication can be used. If it is not physically possible to speak to this person face to face, then try Skype or on the phone. Email, Facebook messaging, and text should be last resorts.

I am dealing with a situation in my own life where I have been hurt by someone, and I have been doing my best to do all of these things. I am daily reminded of God’s mercy however, even in the midst of my hurt.

“Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He will support you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.” Psalm 55:22

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in Spirit.” Psalm 34:18

“The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.” Psalm 9:9

If you are hurting, I pray that God will comfort you. If you do not know the wonderful comfort and love of God, then I pray that you might find it, and find peace in it.

Countdown to Once Upon a Time – Belle

Once Upon a Time returns on September 28, and as I eagerly await that date, I have figured out a way to help pass the time! Every day I will do an analysis of each character, talking about various things. Each post will follow the same general format, and tonight I have chosen one of my all time favorites, Belle.

https://i0.wp.com/img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140205195632/storywikmaine/images/5/53/Belle.png

Name: Belle French

Characteristics: Kind, gentle, lover of books, sees the best in others.

Why do I like this character?: I have always loved Beauty and the Beast because I was able to relate to Belle in so many ways. After seeing the brilliant portrayal of her character on OUAT, I love her even more. While some complain that Belle has no character outside of her relationship with Rumplestilskin, I find that the true depth of her character is revealed when she is with him. The way she looks past the flaws and sees the man that Rumple is, loving him for it, is one of the most endearing aspects of her character. She went through so much in her life, and yet remains strong and resilient, and she is not afraid to stand up for what she loves and what she believes in, and many times those are one and the same.

Why do I dislike this character?: I can think of very few reasons to dislike Belle, one of those being this: She loves Rumple dearly, almost to a fault. And I am afraid that we will see the repercussions of this in the next season, as Rumple is hiding a pretty big secret from her.

Favorite lines from character: “I learned a long time ago, that when you find something worth fighting for, you never give up.”

“I never really cared much for Gaston. To me, love is- love is layered. Love is a mystery to be uncovered. I could never truly give my heart to someone as superficial as he.”

“Rumplestiltskin, this thing we have, it’s never been easy. I’ve lost you so many times. I’ve lost you to darkness, to weakness, and finally, to death. But now I realize, I realize that I have not spent my life losing you. I’ve spent my life finding you.”

Other thoughts: I remember crying and squealing and overall going crazy at so many points of Belle and Rumple’s story, as well as shouting at the screen on numerous occasions. I am interested to see what happens now that they are married, especially since Rumple is hiding youknowwhat from her.

Doctor Who Episode Review – “Deep Breath”

https://i0.wp.com/cdn-static.denofgeek.com/sites/denofgeek/files/styles/insert_main_wide_image/public/4/12//doctor_who_deep_breath.jpg

So last night, the long awaited first episode of Series 8 aired, bringing Doctor Who fans around the world running to their TVs. Some were excited out of their minds, thrilled about the new Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi. Others were going to watch, but had little hope for the results they would get, disappointed by the older Doctor, hating Clara, and overall not enjoying themselves. Then there were some, like myself, who were cautiously optimistic about the new Doctor, thrilled about Clara, and a bit worried about Moffat’s meaning behind the words: “Moving the show in a more adult direction”. (SPOILERS are contained in the following review)

The episode hit the group running, bringing us to Victorian London, where we see the Paternoster gang checking out the gigantic T-Rex that is scaring the citizenry. They are bewildered when it seems that the T-Rex is choking on something, and we soon are treated to the TARDIS being regurgitated out of the dinosaur’s mouth. So lovely! (not)

We then meet the 12th Doctor, fresh out of regeneration, experiencing a pretty bad case of regeneration sickness. (not quite as bad as the 6th Doctor’s. He tried to kill his companion. All 12 did was yell at everyone and act a little crazy). He proceeds to pass out, prompting Vastra to say what the Brigadier of Class Who used to say. “Here we go again…” My reaction to this scene was basically this:

We return to the house of the Paternosters, where the the Doctor sleeps and Vastra has an ever so slightly weird conversation with Clara. Like, I honestly sat through the whole thing like this:

John "wait what?" gif

Until Clara totally told Vastra off! It was like Clara’s awesomeness went up times 1000! 😀 I especially loved Jenny’s reaction. While all this weirdness is going on, the Doctor is sneaking out and talking to the previously mentioned dinosaur. We watch as the dinosaur bursts into flame before the Doctor’s eyes. We are also treated to a scene where the enemy for this episode reveals himself. A strange half-human, half-droid who apparently murders a guy for his eyeballs. EW!

After all this, the Doctor disappears, leaving Clara at the house with the Paternoster gang. None of them seem to believe that the Doctor will return, but Clara refuses to give up hope. This is the point where certain aspects of the storyline began to bother me(more on that later). We witness the Doctor freaking out a poor little homeless dude because apparently, the Doctor hates his new eye brows. I mean, you can hardly blame him though, considering that his previous self had NO eyebrows worth speaking of!

Clara finds an ad in the paper: IMPOSSIBLE GIRL. And figures out that the Doctor wants to meet her for lunch at a restaurant. When the Doctor arrives at the restaurant, they realize that neither one of them put the ad in the paper. This is where I truly began enjoying the episode. The banter between the Doctor and Clara was so much fun! I had several giggle fits during that scene. They quickly realize that the restaurant is a trap, run by the creepy thing that I mentioned earlier. They are trapped by these strange things, and the Doctor begins to wonder if perhaps he has encountered these species before. He leaves Clara alone, and she is captured by the… creatures? I don’t know what to call them. Again, Clara showed her true mettle, bravely facing down these enemies alone, not knowing if the Doctor would save her this time. I wanted to jump up and give a loud cheer for her. And then there was the poignant moment when she reached behind her, believing that the Doctor, even in his new form, would still have her back. And he did! The Paternosters come to save the day and…

Ok, no more spoilers. If you are reading this and haven’t seen it, then you need to watch it to know the end. A few words of warning however… For Christians, the relationship between Vastra and Jenny poses a moral problem. It has been made known in the past that they are married, but it was never dwelt upon or made a big deal out of, which I appreciated. Unfortunately, it was pushed to the point of being uncomfortably forced. Even people who don’t care about the fact that they are lesbians felt it was a bit much. The real kicker was a scene where they “kissed”. I could feel myself wanting to scream at Moffat at this point, but thankfully it was short lived.

My overall thoughts on the episode: The first 45 minutes were… Alright. Too much Vastra and Jenny, and the Doctor was a bit cuckoo! Last hour or so? Minus one or two scenes, pure AMAZINGNESS! I never expected to love this Doctor as much as I do, and I eagerly await the next episode!

 

End of Summer Thoughts, and Announcements!!

https://i0.wp.com/uptowngirl.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/summer1.jpg

Hey everyone! Well, summer is finally winding down, the relaxing days of no school and lots of traveling are swiftly coming to an end. Over the summer, I have not done a great job of posting regularly, but over the last several months I have definitely enjoyed doing this blog, and seeing how many people take the time to read it.

This summer has been CRAZY. It seemed like I barely had any time to think until the beginning of this month. With VBS, All State, volunteering at a local summer camp, a music conference, a 4-H competition, and a vacation to Mississippi, it felt like I was constantly unpacking and repacking my suitcase and heading off somewhere. Despite the craziness of this summer, I have had so many experiences and met so many wonderful people that I will treasure forever! Here are a few:

1. VBS: Volunteering at VBS has become a big part of my summer, and I was so blessed to work with a wonderful group of third graders this year. The theme was “Agency D3”, which meant lots of fun secret agent stuff for the kids AND the leaders. I remember crying on Wednesday of VBS, as I watched several kids from the class walk forward and make decisions to accept Jesus as their Savior.

2. Georgia Baptist All State: This was my very first time at All State, so it was definitely an exciting experience. We traveled to Baltimore and Washington D.C. to do missions work in many different ways. We performed at the local churches, painted, hosted block parties, did a concert at Inner Harbor, sang at the World War 2 Memorial, and even sang the Star Spangled Banner at Fort McHenry, where the song was written. I saw so many amazing things take place on the trip, and could definitely see God working through each person on the trip. I also made some pretty amazing friends. All State was for sure a highlight of my summer.

3. Local Summer Camp. Ever since I was little, there has been a summer camp in my area. It isn’t huge, and most people don’t even realize it goes on, but it has been making an impact on kids for years! (I’m not putting the name simply for safety reasons). This was my first time helping out at the portion of the camp for 4th-6th graders, and it is one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Many of the children came from troubled homes, and many were not from Christian backgrounds. Over the course of the week, almost 100 campers were reached with love of Christ, and many made decisions, either to accept Jesus into their hearts, get baptized, or rededicate their lives to Christ. I cried the last night of camp as I prayed with several campers who had become so special to me throughout the camp.

4. Georgia 4H State Congress. While this one wasn’t an event for Christians or anything, it was still an experience I will never forget. This was the state level of a 4-H competition, where the highest from each of the four districts in Georgia go to compete. While I didn’t place in my category at the event, I still made a few cool new friends, and finally got to try the Cheesecake factory for myself! 😀 I also got to wear a formal dress for the first time EVER to a fancy banquet, and busted a few moves at the late night dance party.

And while all these things have been fun, I think the best thing is seeing how God worked in my life, and in lives of others through me. I was inspired by the things I saw, encouraged by the people I met, and uplifted by the experiences I had. This has been the best summer of my life so far, and I can’t wait to see what is in store for the rest of this year!

One last thing: So you might notice that the title of this blog changed. I decided I liked this title better, and definitely thought it fit better! And another big announcement: I will start regularly reviewing books on this blog. And hopefully a video blog(If I ever get the time). And I want to start doing reviews of TV shows and movies more regularly. I guess what I am saying is that there are going to be some amazing things happening on this blog in the future! Can’t wait to see what God has in store!

New Post – Weird Things I Do When I Am Alone

Hey everyone! As there has been very little going on in the fandoms currently, I decided to do a fun, personal post. The theme is from a list that I posted recently of some fun things to do posts on. So here are weird things that I do when I am alone…

1. I talk to/argue with myself. And I don’t just mean the occasional comment either. I mean full blown conversations with myself. I debate serious issues and converse with imaginary people. Does it freak people out? Yup. Do I care? Nope.

2. I play with things. If there is a ribbon, chain, headphone cord, or anything sitting on my desk or in the general vicinity, I will pick it up and play with it, usually spinning it around and around until I whack myself in the face. My sister finds it quite amusing.

3. I act out stories. Like, literally start acting out scenes from my stories, from books, movies, and TV shows. I do this quite often, though usually silently so that no one hears me. If they did, I would probably be officially thrown into the looney bin.

That is pretty much it, though there is a multitude of other weird things I do when I am with other people. But those are the things I do when I am alone. What weird things do y’all do when you are alone?

Future Blog Ideas, And an Announcement!

Hey everyone! After the excitement of Comic Con, I have been struggling to find nerdy things to write about, so until I do come up with something, I was thinking of doing some of the things on this list:

A 30 Day Blog Challenge...This would be fun to do and then put away for my daughters to read when they get a little older--Let them see me as opposed to "mom"

So what do y’all think? Some of them don’t apply to me, as I have never been in a relationship, and I have never kissed anyone. But some of these sound like a lot of fun, and I think it would be nice to start doing my thoughts for the week using a few of these. Tell me your thoughts!

And now for the big ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!! I am going to be making a video blog thingy for your YouTube enjoyment! I will be talking about pretty much anything, and my first video will be on “Spoilers”. I will be filming it soon, and I am so excited to start sharing with y’all in other ways! Stay Nerdy everyone!
