Can you imagine Regina with a little girl? I mean, I know I flail over her relationship with Henry, but a little baby girl…JUST IMAGINE IT.

BABIES

ugh

help

okay but part of me also really does think like regina was petrified of little girls not only because of her history with cora but also because of snow

like she’d be afraid to treat an infant and small child like her mother treated her

and then she’d be afraid to be near a pre-teen/teenager because anything that resembled snow’s behavior would straight up trigger her

but ugh could you imagine the show if henry was henrietta/harriet. this little girl child with a SuperSpecialDestiny whose mothers both had SuperSpecialDestinies and how hard both of them would fight to make sure their little girl never had to live the lives they led and to make sure that she always always always had choice

ugh ugh ugh i want it so bad

also just give me LP and all the babies, no i don’t need ovaries here explode them all you want.

Oh, no, I totally think she wanted a little boy for those specific reasons that you just mentioned and then she got Henry and we know the rest of the story.

But, if it was a little girl who got caught up in all this stuff, and then you have Emma and Regina who have suffered their whole lives to fulfill someone else’s plans and prophecies and curses and then they find out their little girl is supposed to do the exact same thing…the world would BURN before they ever let that happen.

And then I’m just thinking about how when Henry was pulling away from Regina, and it would be so different if he had been a girl because even though Regina is always, ALWAYS terrified of turning into her mother, it would be even worse and she would be just so lost and on her own and trying her best and it would HURT…

Yes Lana and all the babies.  I don’t even like kids and my ovaries would explode if I got to see her with baby Henry.

… ugh, babyverse headcanons incoming.

damn it.

but also if we’re specifically going with the Quvenzhané Wallis fancast, if she specifically had a Black little girl the kid probably wouldn’t be as entitled and arrogant as Henry is, maybe? and might not actually pull away from Regina but rather be able to see Regina’s sadness and sorta ask herself, where does this come from?

or maybe be immediately distrustful of The Book even while terrified of it?

basically yeah i am kind of imagining Eshu’s character Keisha from her “Adam” fic in this role, which doesn’t make sense really because obvs Keisha and Henry grew up in two totally different environments. but yeah. it still seems to me like Harriet would be much less oblivious to everything than Henry is

If we go with Quvenzhane, or a girl of color, then yes, absolutely, that actually changes the entire mother/child dynamic from the child’s perspective, as well.

I mean, to go back to what I was talking about earlier with how society would operate on Regina’s adopted child—the bond between them would be emphasized and strengthened in a place like Storybrooke because of mutual outsider status/”othering.”  Henrietta/Harriet would be hit with “I’m different, but Mama’s different like me.”

And I think that would probably lead to the changes you’ve said—actually seeing Regina’s sadness, doubting the Book in favor of her mother, displaying a deeper and more nuanced understanding of “the rules” and how they operate unfairly on good/innocents.

In sum: I WANTS IT.

Not exactly Regina with a little girl instead of Henry, but I did write this.

Confession: Quvenzhane Wallis is the inspiration for Keisha in my fic "Adam"

It’s eerie how “We Are Both” echoes something I wrote.

The parallels between Regina/Rumplestiltskin and Keisha/Adam (from my fic “Adam”) are quite intriguing.

The latest chapter of "Adam" (11/13?)

I know it’s a break from my Swan Queen stuff, but I really like writing this and hope more of you read and talk about it.

I was explaining to someone that my idea was to write between the seams of the main story in OUAT, creating moments that could take place alongside the events of each episode. I also liked getting a fresh perspective on the canon story and characters.

I like this chapter, maybe even the best. I really like how Keisha relates to Regina, and how she relates the experience to her own life. She seems so innocent but so wise at the same time

Thanks. Now I gotta top this. No pressure.

I figured that someone who lost her mother would not be so quick to dismiss that mother-child relationship. Someone who lived with a parent who doesn’t care about her well-being (or is too fucked up to, as Willy is) would feel very differently about a parent who likely cares a bit too much.

I also wanted someone who could interact with Regina in a normal way. Hatred and fear tend to be the default mode for people interacting with her, and I wanted someone who didn’t automatically leap to that response.

I wonder how Adam would feel about this little exchange if he knew about it.
