Miss Jane's Place in the Sun


It doesn't matter what's happening in your real world: you're here now.
So grab a beer, sit back and enjoy the sun.

It’s painful to think about how it was someone’s job to spray Angie Harmon down to make her look sweaty for this episode.

Was telling a friend how, in my dream, my mum tried to get in the way of me going on a date with Rose McIver and my friend - I’ll love her forever - reached for her phone and was ready to ring my mum and tell her to get out of my [dream] love life ;)

According to @Bastardsonvan who took the pics, Lana was fixing JMO’s hair.

In the first pic she has hair on her face.

Cute little moment!

(…just told a friend that i’m busy…turns out i meant “i am looking at pictures of lana and jmo doing each other’s hair”…)

Personal and political lesbian visibility.
By Lisa Wade, PhD
Suzy S. sent in an illuminating confession from PostSecret in which a woman confesses to being girly, but feels like she has to look more masculine because she’s a lesbian.  It reads: “Because I’m a LESBIAN I feel obligated to cut my hair short and wear men’s clothing… I’m actually really girly.”
This woman says she feel “obligated” to tone down her girliness.  In fact, adopting a masculinized appearance is one way that women signal to other people that they are gay, something they need to do because heterosexuality is normative and, therefore, generally assumed of everyone in the absence of signs otherwise.  There are lots of reasons why lesbians may want to be visible.
They may want to be a symbol of the very existence of gay people and thereby fight the assumption that everyone is straight.  They may want to find other gay women with which to build community or to find a girlfriend.  Or they may simply want to ward off the unwanted attention of men.  The style choices made by lesbians, then, aren’t simply about fashion or some internal inclination towards the masculine, as our confessor neatly illustrates. In some cases, at least a little bit, they’re strategic communication.

Rape culture arguments aside, I still can’t even wrap my head around how CS even makes sense. I mean I get that she could be attracted to him, and I even get the ‘kindred spirits’ thing back in early season 2. Like Emma was very pirate like in her past, engaging in not-so-lawful activities to get by, always being on the run and never having a long term home, living in her bug and freely sailing the open land rather than sea, like sure, I get that connection, if that’s what they were wanting to go with.

Except that’s not what they were wanting to go with?

Because Emma’s whole character arc in season 1, as well as beyond, was to learn to plant her roots, stay in one place, make a home for herself with her parents who she just found out loved her all along and make her life stable so that she could give a stable life to Henry. That’s basically the entire point of her whole character arc. So for her to be with someone now as completely unstable as Hook who has no roots and no permanent home and who she connects with based on the way she used to be, makes no sense and completely undoes her character arc of the past 3 seasons.

Who should she be with? Well, I don’t think she should be just choosing her romantic partner based on what makes logical sense and based just on what makes sense for Henry. She’d be better off not being with anyone at all. But what if there was someone who did have a stable home and a steady job, who did love Henry to pieces, but who also had a dark side that Emma could relate to? Someone who would always put Henry first and who worked to overcome their dark past for him just like Emma did.

I mean, IDK if there’s anyone like that in the show, but if there was, I think that person would be pretty perfect for who Emma is right now… If they existed in the show…
