Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

So, once Hook's ship left the magical confines of Storybrooke, did it become visible? The logistics of a sailing ship trying to dock in New York when piloted by someone unfamiliar with local procedures would be fun to watch.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

The ship wasn't cursed so there shouldn't be any restrictions to the town and it's made from magic wood.

That being said, magical items can hold a charge, but Storybrooke is like a big ass recharging platform.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

When they asked that question the response was "his ship can cloak." Maybe he has a treaty with the Romulans.

I'd be inclined to think it is still cloaked, because Gold's scarf was enchanted and that still works outside Storybrooke.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Emma actually used the word "Cloaked".

That is so Trek.

^^Well... she IS a child of the late 20th century. No way she could avoid Star Trek in its many incarnations.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Sure there is.

Most people in the first world, even during the 90s, have never sat through an entire episode, even if they know a few catch phrases as part of the group consensus.

A girl I knew once said "I'll buy that for a dollar!"

"You like Robocop?" I reply.

A dazed look turns into a sneer "No, what? Huh... Fuck you're weird."

Interesting thing to think about - do they have tv/movies in Storybrooke? They have a library, are the books only ones they were available in the magical realm or are their normal-realm books, and if so could the fairytale characters read books about themselves?

I think the Storybrookers were aware of the fairy tales, even when they were cursed, which is why they didn't take Henry's crazy theories seriously--because he was talking about famous storybook characters that everybody knew weren't real.

Note that we never heard a conversation like this:

"He's thinks you're Snow White."

"Who?"

Hm true. I wonder in that case whether the original authors were either:

a) residents of the magical realm trapped in our world who used their home and people from it as basis for their stories

b) people from our world who journeyed into the magical realm, or had some link to it.

Unless in this world the book August wrote is the only source of fairytales.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

I had a random thought earlier: What if neither Cora nor Regina are natives of the Enchanted Forest?

The reason the question came up in my mind is because Cora ''became'' the Queen of Hearts entirely too easily in Wonderland. If it were that easy to earn nobility in any of the magical realms, why wouldn't she have done that in the Enchanted Forest either before or after her banishment to Wonderland? The fact that she had a thing for hearts even before that banishment suggests a lot, too.

What's more, if you take a good, long look at Regina's father, particularly his outfit, he bears a striking resemblance to a certain inhabitant of Wonderland. Even the role he served after Regina became Queen is similar.

And then you have Regina herself. A fair, mostly innocent young woman who retained that general innocence until her mother had the love of her life murdered. If Cora was as evil and manipulative as we knew her to be, how did Regina succeed at being so relatively good for most of her life? What if, instead, she was a real girl who accidentally fell into Wonderland, thwarted Cora, and as payback Cora ''stole'' her away when they were throwing her out of Wonderland, and manipulated her into believing she was Cora's daughter?

The fact that they relied on the Mad Hatter for most of their dimensional hopping, and the Hatters obsession with Regina, is all just icing on the cake.

Like I said, just a random thought.

But wouldn't that ^^ negate the idea that Cora was the miller's daughter?

Not necessarily. Though trying to figure out the timeline in this show is bogglesome.

Well that phrase didn't originate with Robocop and that wouldn't be the first thing that popped into my mind if heard it. In fact, I've seen Robocop more than once and don't recall the line being said.

No, that phrase really was popularized by (as opposed to originated from) Robocop. Your personal memory notwithstanding.
