I'm so happy I decided to kom bij this website! Now I can rant about my favoriete toon (and like the only toon I watch) and one of my favoriete topics! So if u like the artikels I write, expect to see meer xD
Anyhow, getting to the point of the article, I've started to get the feeling that there are actually people who don't like Snow and Charming \'o'/ and I think I know why. In order to tackle this topic, I think I need to start with shedding some light on The Curse.
First of all, for those who disagree with Snow and Charming putting Emma through the wardrobe-portal, allow me to explain why they did the right thing :). The biggest thing is that they were giving her her BEST chance, they say this all the time, but it's so true. Snow and Charming didn't know what would happen as a result of the curse, they didn't know where they'd go, who they'd become, of even WHAT they would become. Something REALLY bad could have happened as a result of the curse. But they knew that no matter what happened Emma would be veilig if she went through the portal. Another point is that Regina says to Snow "there will be no meer happy endings" (I hope I quoted that right). When they were transferred to our world Snow and Charming weren't even married and didn't know each other. So if Emma had come through Storybrooke as a result of the curse, who knows what would have happened. She could've ended up like Grace (Jefferson's daughter), who Regina placed in a different family. The whole point of the curse is for no one to have a happy ending. No one in Storybrooke was sad exactly, but they weren't happy, they were just living. She still could have had a miserable life. door putting her through the wardrobe she could AT LEAST have the chance to know the truth, to meet her real family, and maybe have her happy ending. I know that at this point in the show, Emma doesn't exactly have her happy ending yet. But we still have a ways to go, so we won't lose hope ;).
Secondly, I know that Mary Margret and David were pretty annoying in season one. They were cheating, lying, and specifically crying...A LOT. This all comes back to the whole "there will be no happy endings" thing. Regina had David Married to someone else to separate them so they would never be TRULY happy. Another part of the curse is that everyone's memories are changed, thereby slightly changing their personalities (because your experiences shape who u become as a person).
The curse also made everyone so much wimpier. In the episode "Welcome to Storybrooke", they toon how Regina bumps into Mary Margret and Mary Margret automatically backs down and desperately tries to apologize, even though it was Regina's fault. Snow is much stronger (physically and mentally) than Mary Margret, I think that if Snow was put in Mary Margret's position she would have made better decisions. I hope that eventually we'll see meer of the tough, strong Snow soon.
Now for David...David, David, David...cursed David was wimpy and emotionally unstable. As proven door the Fairy tale parallel, that if cursed David was actually like the REAL David he wouldn't have lied and cheated. Charming-David was meer committed to doing the right and best thing than going after his own wishes. Also, I think that him being in a coma created a memory loophole. Let us go down memory lane, shall we? Remember Season 1 Episode 16, I believe, David begins having flashes of Snow attempting to assassinate Regina. So in his defense, because of the loophole he knew that Snow was who he should and was supposed to be with.
I hope I explained that well ;)
In conclusion, I like Snow and Charming-David, but not Mary Margret and Storybrooke-David.
*Note all of the things I've zei have been confirmed in the toon of door the writers one way of another.
