{SwanღThief} Emma&Neal #85: "All that time thinking he didn't love me only to find out that he did." - Emma

The Swan and the Thief

• • •

Welcome to the 85th
Appreciation Thread

Tallahassee, baby.
Almost home.

• • •

I think I should go.

I wanted to go to jail for you! - Neal...
It kills me that I let August talk me
into letting you go.

- I don't wanna hear it.
- No, okay, but I have to say it.
I wanted to look for you.
I just... I was too afraid.

- Of what?
That you would never forgive me,
- 'cause
I never forgave myself.

There hasn't been a day that's gone by
that I don't regret having left you.
-- I'm sorry, Emma. For everything.

the characters.

Baelfire/ Neal Cassidy - Michael Raymond James
Baelfire, called Bae, was Rumplestiltskin's only family and greatest treasure. Bae's mother, Milha, abandoned them when he was very young. It was to save Bae from the Ogre War battlefield that Rumplestiltskin became the Dark One. Bae makes Rumplestiltskin promise to leave behind his magic if Bae can find a way for them to be together as father and son without the magic of the Dark One. Morraine tells Bae about Reul Ghorm, the oldest and darkest magic, who gives Bae the last magic bean. This magic bean opens a portal into a land without magic (presumably our world). Bae goes through the portal, but Rumplestiltskin renigs on their deal and refuses to follow Bae. The last we see of Bae in FTL is him calling his father a coward as the portal closes.

Neal Cassidy is a young thief in love with another young thief, seventeen year old Emma Swan. They make plans to start a life together in Tallahassee, FL, but first they have some stolen property to get rid of. On his way to fence the merchandise, Neal meets August who convinces him to leave Emma for her own good. August proves to Neal that magic exists, and that the Curse is real. Neal truly loves Emma and makes August promise to let him know when the curse is broken. Neal also leaves their yellow bug and a substantial amount of money for August to give to Emma upon her release from prison. Neal does not know yet he has a son but finds out when his father, Emma, and Henry find him at his apartment in NYC.

Emma Swan - Jennifer Morrison
Admittedly, Emma Swan may seem like a rather unlikely savior. Raised in foster-care, she has struggled most of her life just trying to track down who she is herself, let alone rescue anyone else. However, her strong moral compass and uncanny ability to know when others are lying lead her to always try to do what is right. When her son Henry, who she gave up for adoption as an infant, arrived and brought her to the town of Storybrooke, there was no way she was going to abandon him again. Although absent for most of his life, she is fiercely protective of Henry, and would go to the end of the earth to care for him. And while she might not have believed her son about magic at first, she certainly does now. Fighting a dragon will do that. Now, finally reunited with the parents she has spent her whole life searching for, Emma is finding it harder than she thought to let her emotions out after a lifetime of keeping them bundled away. Still, so long as she lets her heart be her guide, she will never lose her way.

"Emma Swan is a deeply damaged woman, and a deeply conflicted woman. She is a survivor, and used to being a loner, and therefore a sucker for the underdog. Against her better judgement, she will compromise herself to fight for what is right and to help those in need. She is strong and aggressive, but her brokenness and her emotions are not buried far beneath her tough exterior. He first reaction to most things is anger, but she has spent her life trying to manage her temper. She is both rash and calculated, and is forced to deal with her instincts to protect her child, a child she believes she is not capable of mothering. In the simplest form, Emma is a list of contrasting qualities: She is hard and soft; she is intense and easy going; she is strong and vulnerable; she is safe and dangerous; she is logical and impulsive. It is exciting to play a character that is so deeply conflicted and fiercely compelled to fight for what she believes is right." (J.Morrison on playing Emma)
• • •

Me and J.Mo are super tight. We’re buddies. I work with her more than anybody and we got really close. We’re always cracking jokes and we laugh constantly. There are days where I come to work and I’ll have a freak-out about something unrelated and she knows how to fluff my aura and make it better vice versa. ”

If Morrison’s bummed out, right, she likes cheese. So sometimes I’ll surprise her and go get some cheese, these particular crackers that we put peanut butter on and I’ll find attractive fruit. Literally, she doesn’t mess with ugly fruit — so attractive fruit. So if she’s bummed out or frustrated I’ll find attractive fruit, crackers with peanut butter and cheese — not expensive, French, stinky cheeses, but the gross prepackaged kind that kids carry. She likes that.” (Michael on working with Jennifer)

the future.
A yellow bug is tying them up even if they're miles apart.
She wants to help him get away with stealing watches by stealing said watches.
Faking labor to get away? Watching a thievery couple shop-lifting never was that entertaining.
Henry playing "matchmaker" for his parents? Head-canon accepted.
11 years and thinking he sent her to jail didn't kill her love for him, nothing will.
You made me happier than I'd been by far
"I am really secretly glad they finally admitted their love, even if it was like right before the moment he was ripped away." - Estelle
"Seeing Emma say I love you to somebody is very powerful and to see that connection between the two of them was very powerful.” Eddy
The reason for the curse falling for the one who broke it is poetry
When love is truly right it lives from year to year.
It changes as it goes and on the way it grows, but it never disappears.
After all that we've been through, it all comes down to me and you.

Having been able to admit these feelings to the woman that I love, and have them gives a laser sense of clarity. - MRJ
I don't think Neal is under any kind of illusions that there isn't work to be done between he and Emma. - MRJ
MRJ sees Neal's recent acknowledgement of his feelings -- and his desire for family -- to be a driving force.
It's my son. And it's the woman that I love. And I can't sit idly by. I need to get there. -MRJ
I knew the moment I saw him and that I never stopped loving him. - Emma

They are home for each other. It doesn’t matter if it’s Tallahassee or Storybrooke, but their home is with each other.

thanks for the new thread.

i know i shouldn't listen but it makes me so sad when people talk down on the things that have happened between emma and Neal. I'm really looking forward to them seeing each other for the first time and I'm hoping that their true love prevails over their pride.

Yeah it's hard to not listen to that type of stuff. I don't think we have a whole lot to worry about. I just hope that it's within the next few episodes that Emma and the group find out about Neal being alive because if not, then I feel like they will have dragged that for too long.

We know how she feels about Neal. I think the kiss will be a spur of the moment type thing, so hopefully there is some Neal stuff in the episode that will be good for us fans.

I just got into this fandom and I'm not worried about them at all haha

Because of things like this:

Her little gasp/smile when he says he loves her too is just the sweetest thing.

I'm sure there will still be more angst in store for them but I definitely think they'll eventually work things out. How long the writers take to make that happen, who knows, but I'm looking forward to the journey!

Yeah I am looking forward to it too and even if there is a triangle that happens, I still think that ultimately, Emma will choose Neal because she still loves him and he's Henry's father and yeah lol.

That scene gets me everytime.

I agree. And right now I don't really see how there can be a triangle in the sense that I feel like it'd be lopsided , I haven't seen much development on the other side. And I'm not even trying to bash, just my honest assessment.
But, again we'll just wait and see.

I love that scene! Sad but beautiful

Yeah I agree. I think that Emma and Neal have more in common than her and Hook. Neal and her went through a lot of the same stuff when they were young and so they connect more and I think the reason that Emma is connecting to Hook so much right now is because he is her connection to Neal. Plus Neverland makes all their emotions come out and be vunerable so that is a big part of it too. I really think it's just going to be a spur of the moment thing and that's it. We'll see I don't know, but i'm kind of hoping Neal will be nearby or something or see them afterwards, that would be a interesting way to end the episode.

Yep, agree about the bonding over Neal/Bae thing

Hmm I dunno I don't really like the whole "the other person sees it...dun dun dun" kinda thing. I don't really have any guesses or theories on what will happen.
