So we’ve established that Hook really hasn’t changed.
And we’ve established that Rumple really hasn’t changed.

An island born unto itself alone, Macquarie Island has never, in its geologically short history, touched another landmass.

Based on a photo I found online of abandoned whaling boats in South Georgia.
“The inner parts of the country were not less savage and horrible. The wild rocks raised their lofty summits, till they were lost in the clouds, and the valleys lay covered with everlasting snow. Not a tree was to be seen, nor a shrub even big enough to make a toothpick.”
- Captain James Cook

You know, the worst part of all of this fandom fuckery is that it never ends. As a Latina queer woman who has been abused, it’s not my job to educate people and to make them stop being sexist or homophobic or ableist or racist or to make them see rape culture. The problem is that if I don’t do that, I’ll always be receiving anon hate. I’ll always be seeing shit on my tag. II will always be receiving hateful accusations. I’ll never see my ship be canon. I’ll never see any representation of someone like me in the media being legitimized.
While others can sit back and enjoy a fandom and tell others to stop hating and to be nicer and to “ship and let ship”, I can’t. I don’t have that sort of privilege. Because I can’t stop fighting, I can’t stop screaming and I can’t stop pleading. Because if I do stop, I’ll be silenced.
And I won’t let that happen.
Since then Morrison has gone on to tweet, and retweet, things involving the Captain Swan fandom. A heterosexual male and female coupling. What the Swan Queen fans continue to want to know is why they can’t be validly accepted too. Sure, tweeting you are LGBT friendly is great, but where is the backup with this. With writers continually pairing the heterosexual couples together, the queer fandom wants to have a fairytale ending too. Fairy tale love stories can include LGBT happy endings as well, it’s not all death, loss, and destruction.
this is why it matters that we keep talking (hopefully politely and productively, not because tone policing is okay but because it just works better) uncowed by the fandom’s bullshit or TPTB’s.
we are changing the conversation. our talking points are appearing in (relatively) mainstream media outlets. it is working.
