Oncers



"Once Upon A Time"

Today (because I am still procrastinating) I thought I would talk about another show that I like to watch, Once Upon A Time, on ABC.  If you are not familiar with the show, it follows a dual reality.  There is the fairytale land and then Sunny Brook, which outsiders are not supposed to be able to enter.  The main characters are Snow White (Mary Margaret), Prince Charming, Emma (daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming), and the Evil Queen (Regina).  Long story short – Emma was brought to Story Brook in order to break a spell. Who brought Emma to the spell bound town? Her own son that she had given up for adoption, by the way, was adopted by Regina (The Evil Queen).  Another important main character is Mr. Gould (Rumpelstiltskin) who has his deals everywhere. 
There are so many fairytales woven into the story line that I couldn’t possibly do it justice here.  However, season two has introduced us to more characters, which are quickly becoming a modern family.  The last episode we discovered Henry’s (Emma’s son, and Snow White and Prince Charming’s grandson) father is Rumpelstiltskin’s son – which (hold on to your hats) would make Henry his grandson.  One big happy family!  Add in distant relatives as Regina was Henry’s mother for a while (adopted mother) and now Regina’s wicked mother (The Queen of Hearts) is in the picture and causing chaos as well.  We also learned in the last episode of Rumpelstiltskin’s prophecy that was told to him, that Henry could be his undoing… *dramatic “dunn-dunn-DUN!”*

We know that fairytales are not reality.  I like how the show incorporates the different realms, how fairytales are real.  We each live our lives and it adds to our own personal fairytale.  I read a great quote on Facebook the other day, “…today is the first page of your 365 page novella.”  We each have our own experiences and stories to tell.

Until next time, or the next… dream.
