There’s a town in Maine, where you’re not cool unless you’ve been to jail…
An object that is surrounded by a magnetic field and that has the property, either natural or induced, of attracting iron or steel.
A person, a place, an object, or a situation that exerts attraction.
A female child, from birth to full growth.
The use of girl to refer to a woman of any age is highly likely to be considered old-fashioned or to cause offence.

I AM SO EXCITED.
Trying to be a good person is welcoming your estranged mom one morning when she greets you despite the fact that she just tried to brainwash you and engulf your family in flames a few days before and lovingly showing her a bird house you’ve made. You tell your mom that you missed her when she says that she’s missed you and you give her a warm smile because she’s your mom and she raised you and then your mom tells you that she plans on killing countless people in incredible destruction and then take you to the Enchanted Forest and you tell her, with more gumption than half the Fairy Tale characters you admire, that there was no way you were going to let that happen even though you’d be fine…it’d just be any other Storybrooke citizen beside you who would die in a mystical earthquake.
Being a good person is loving those who love you, caring for all, and standing against those who choose to do wrong, like committing mass murder.
Being a good person is trying to respect the man you just found out is your grandfather despite the fact that he quite LITERALLY and blatantly threatened to kill you only a few measly hours before you got on a plane with him because you care about people and you know people can change if they actually tried. And when Rumple showed Henry that he didn’t care that he was his grandfather and certainly didn’t care what he called him, Henry, disappointed, stopped trying. Because he did try.
Henry, a good person, tries. He tries to warn Emma about how dangerous Mr. Gold is constantly throughout Season 1 (he’s worse than my mom), but when he finds out that that dangerous person is his family, he tries to love them and they reveal that they don’t want his love or don’t intend on giving it back.
In the first two episodes of Season 2, Henry tries to save Regina’s life, from Dr. Whale’s mob and from the wraith, because he loves her but in those same two episodes she revealed that she would not at all try to be a better person. She would not try to stop attacking people with fireballs or trying to trap him with the branches of a tree. And then, after being convinced, she decides to actually try. He stands against his family when they talk about killing her later in the season, despite the fact that once again, she tried to kill them all and use magic to get his love with the Dark One’s dagger. Because he loves her. Because he cares. Because he tries. All three of which he does a lot better than the adults around him. But she gives up trying (yes, with good, explainable, not justifiable reasons). She backslides, she goes back to killing. But then, once again, she magics up, puts on her most stylish black pea coat, dons her motherhood hat, and TRIES by using all the strength she had to stop the destruction of Storybrooke and save the countless lives she had no problem cursing or killing to ensure that HE would never be alone, to ensure that HE would be loved, not just to selfishly ensure that he would love HER and not the other way around.
Being a good person is being clever enough to realize that you’re the only one aging in your entire town, no one has ever left or come into the town, and putting the pieces together enough to realize that your mother is the one who cursed all those you know and millions more than that, and then stealing a credit card and hopping on a bus to Boston to find the person who will save all those innocent people. People think Henry went to get Emma just because he wanted to shit on Regina’s life, but he went to get Emma and KEPT Emma in Storybrooke so that she could SAVE lives. When Emma got him in the yellow bug and started driving and told him that she was taking him away from Storybrooke at the end of Season 1, he could have said “HELL YEAH! Let’s do it! Let’s drive and drive and drive and live our lives together and forget about all of the other people in Storybrooke who are still cursed and are still in danger” but this LITTLE BOY crashed a car so that untold millions could be free from the Hell HIS mother, who he still chooses to defend and care about, put them in.
I’m SOOOOOO sick of Henry hate. I’m so sick of Henry bashing. I’m so sick of Henry being called a little shit. I’m so sick of people claiming that Henry treats Regina so horribly. I’m so sick of the things he’s done and the great character he is being downplayed because people wanna excuse the actions of an emotionally and mentally abusive mother (who, YES, was emotionally and mentally abused, and is not evil, whose actions can be EXPLAINED (not justified)).
It’s a simple fact that if you hate Henry because you think he is ungrateful, think that he hates Regina, or think that he doesn’t recognize her as his mother, then you are just not paying attention to the show.
Blame your poor attention span, not the kid.
Last time we saw Regina and Emma they were wearing the ubiquitous blue blazer and what passes for pirate femme respectively but in this latest episode they were both in head to toe black. With their matching but mirrored straps across their chest they look like bookends.
Regina magicked them up matchy-matchy outfits after they ripped each others’ clothes off.
Emma: C’mon, Reggie, give me a tanktop. Is that too much to ask?
Regina: No, you look too good in a turtleneck. It’s like I’m dating someone who’s graduated college. How do you feel about heels?
Emma: I’m guessing the same way you’d feel about me punching you in the throat, so let’s not touch the boots.
Regina: If I had known this was all I had to do to get you into proper garments, I would’ve done it a lot sooner. Care to go for a second round, so I can do something about those underthings of yours?
Emma: What’s wrong with my undies?
Regina: They have Wolverine on them.
