Surviving the Summer Break for ‘Once Upon a Time’ Fans –7 Songs for 7 Ships

ABC

I really can’t explain my psychosis using only human words. My level of obsession and emotional dependency on my fandoms is off the charts most days, and it works its way into every little corner of my life. I make fandom-themed meals. I casual cosplay daily. I’ve made major life decisions because I’m confident that so-and-so fictional-character-I-admire would approve. And for as long as I can remember I’ve been able to compile a soundtrack in my head to accompany whatever fictional ship, or relationship, I’m currently jonesing on.

It has become a kind of therapy during this long summer as we await the September 27 return of Once Upon a Time for me to find meaning in everything. So as I drive my tiny tornado of a toddler back and forth to play group and the grocery store, my mind is blissfully allowed to wander along with the DJ’s playlist. What I’ve set before you today is but a tiny taste, an amusebouche if you will, of the audio buffet I’ve laid out in my brain. I pick at it every few minutes, and thus my fandom belly grows ever fat-full. But #YOLO, amirite? Besides, imaginary bikini season isn’t for another year.

I hope this small repast leaves you sated until next week and tides you over as we get closer to the fall premiere.  Make sure you let us know in the comments what songs make you think of your favorite characters and ships!

Song: Cheerleader – OMI
Ship: Outlaw Queen – Robin Hood/Regina
Lyrics that make it perfect:

When I need motivation
My one solution is my queen
‘Cause she stays strong

ABC

Right out of the gate we get a reference to a strong queen. Yeah, it seems pretty obvious, but I’m more interested in the “motivation” and “solution” part. To me that implies Robin gets lots of support from Regina, and together they’ll find an answer to their problems. We saw evidence of their united front against Zelena at the end of Season 4, and previously we saw that Regina encouraged Robin to do the right thing and stick with Marian before all the cray cray started. And Regina’s not just strong: she STAYS strong.

This is also a great, positive song that makes me less stressed out about all the soap opera drama they’ve had to endure lately. And while it’s a given that Robin is part of Regina’s happy ending….

ABC
Regina is also part of Robin’s. And him recognizing that is key to their success.

Treat yo’ self with the original, unremixed version here.

 

Song: What Kind of Man – Florence + the Machine
Ship: Rumbelle – Rumple and Belle
Lyrics that make it perfect: *pfft* How about literally every word in this song? Like, literally every single word. I haven’t explicated a poem since I was in high school, but I’d be very happy to do so for this song right now. Ok, fine, I’ll narrow it down to three parts.

You were on the other side
Like always, you could never make your mind

Rumple has always set himself apart by virtue of being the Dark One. He tries to play house with Belle, tries to have this human life, but he ALWAYS chooses the darkness.

And with one kiss
You inspired a fire of devotion
That lasted for twenty years


Okay, so maybe it was 28 years, but whatever, you get the point. You have to admit, “devotion” is definitely a word that one could use to describe Belle’s love for Rumple.

What kind of man loves like this?
What kind of man?

What is Rumple? Is he a man? Is he the Dark One? What kind of man beats someone with their cane in a dark alley for the amusement of his hope-to-be girlfriend?

2x19_Rumple_beats_up_the_Sheriff_of_Nottingham
What kind of man flays a robber alive in his dungeon? What kind of man lies and controls the woman he says he loves and makes her an accomplice to his schemes? Maybe he isn’t really a man anymore after all.

Listen to the Saturday Night Live version here!

 

Song: The Perfect Storm – Brad Paisley
Ship: Captain Swan – Hook/Emma
Lyrics that make it perfect:

She’s so complicated that’s the way God made her
Sunshine mixed with a little hurricane

In my opinion this is another song where every line is simply dead on for this pairing. But I think these two lines sum it up nicely. Killian recognizes that Emma is not the definition of “perfect.” But she is the definition of “perfect for him.” He accepts what a whirlwind she is, and he sees the very best in her.

I never meant to fall like this
But she don’t just rain, she pours
That girl right there’s the perfect storm

ABC

Killian was taken with Emma from the day he met her. He’s wrapped up in her and all that she is. He loves her passion, her courage, her toughness. But he loves her kindness, her gentleness, and her weaknesses just as much. This is going to be especially important in season 5 when Emma’s dark side comes out to play!

Check out this fan video that CaptainSwanHook made just for me!

 

Song: Honey, I’m Good – Andy Grammar
Pairing: Every guy who’s with someone, with a little bit of Ruby thrown in
Lyrics that make it perfect:

It’s been a long night here, and a long night there
And these long long legs are damn near everywhere

tumblr_mjqfpllTqE1qf2v6ho1_250

After a long day of fighting Wraiths and Flying Monkeys, the gents settle down at the diner bar for some shots and beers, served up by Ruby. Ok, this one is more of a somewhat non-canon gigglefest. It’s no secret that Ruby, whether intentional or not, catches the eye of many a man in Storybrooke. I feel that every man in town who is true to his woman has probably looked at Ruby at least once, sighed heavily, and squared his jaw in courageous determination and said to himself “nah.”

Ruby-Red-once-upon-a-time-30729993-160-170_zps66bc0319

I have a running fanvid in my head of David, Killian, Robin, and even Grumpy (yeah, yeah, I know) having tempting interactions with Ruby and firmly resolving to return to their true loves. Hey, no Ruby shaming there. In the immortal words of Little Richard, the girl can’t help it.

Here’s the original video. Every time I watch it, someone starts cutting onions around me.

 

Song: Someone Like You – Adele (with a few pronoun changes)
Pairing: WarriorPrincess SleepingWarrior – Mulan/Aurora (C’mon, wouldn’t have Warrior Princess been WAY better? Why am I not in charge of naming ships? *hits Colin O’Donoghue over the head with champagne* MINE!!)
Lyrics that make it perfect:

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.

ABC

Nope. Nope. Nope. Goodnight, party’s over. *clutches heart*

Also this part:

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

Mulan’s love for Aurora was forged in the fires of battle. You don’t melt a love like that down easily. Here. I dare you to listen to this song and look at this picture and not cry.

ABC

 

Song: Blank Space – Taylor Swift
Pairing: AuthElla – Cruella/Isaac
Lyrics that make it perfect:

Nice to meet you, where you been?
I could show you incredible things
Magic, madness, heaven, sin

But also:

Got a long list of ex-lovers
They’ll tell you I’m insane

But mostly:

Cause, darling, I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream

ABC

This song is all about writing a story to fit ones wants and desires, and Isaac the Author was famous for that! Couple that with a genuinely psychotic, sadistic Cruella, and you’ve got yourself the kind of doomed-to-fail romance that is a Taylor Swift break up song.

The similarities between Tay Tay and Cru Cru in this music video are actually a little creepy, to be honest.

 

Song: Am I Wrong – Nico & Vinz
Pairing: Grumpy and Nova
Lyrics that make it perfect:

Am I wrong for thinking out the box from where I stay?
Am I wrong for saying that I choose another way?

ABC

And very much this:

Walk to walk and don’t look back, always do what you decide
Don’t let them control your life, that’s just how I feel

tumblr_m0ehb0Mwxf1qgwefso1_250

This song is all about saying “I don’t have to be what you tell me to be.” For better or worse, that’s a sentiment most of us can relate to, and one that Grumpy made his anthem for a while until the Blue Fairy pretty much hit his nose with a rolled up newspaper.

tumblr_inline_n4tk78RYAe1sdlnpf
Does anyone have a fly swatter?

Check out the video in all it’s awesomeness here.

What songs make you think of your favorite OUaT characters or ships? Do you think you can do better than the songs I picked this week? Let us know in the comments!

Surviving the Summer Break from Once Upon a Time: Cosplay on the Cheap!

It’s been four weeks since Once Upon a Time closed out season four and I’m still breathing. SOMEHOW. It’s probably because I have already watched seasons one, two, and three all the way through (and then some), twice. I’m on my second trip through season four as we speak. Don’t you dare tell me I don’t know how to live my life to its fullest!

I’ve been trying to keep busy, trying to keep my mind off the Sadness of Summer Break (which is my new band name, omg!). And I’ve put the fanfic down this last week to reconnect with another fandom passion: COSPLAY!!!!!!!

I don’t cosplay everything I love. I simply can’t. The amount of time, energy, and money that goes into researching, designing, procuring, buying, and assembling a costume can be absolutely draining. I used to average about six decent cosplays a year before I had a kid. Now I’m very happy if my homemade “Stark Industries” t-shirt doesn’t have mashed banana on it.

So any day that I make it out of my pyjamas, I try to casual cosplay a little bit. Sometimes it’s a Black Sabbath tee shirt and kale juice; some days it’s a Gryffindor scarf and hat. But it makes me feel better to have a little bit of my heroes with me when I venture out into the world. With my social anxiety and depression, any courage and strength they can lend me is much appreciated.

Most of us can’t go to work or school or out to get coffee in full regalia. It’s hard to convince your boss, or even your friends and family, that this is an acceptable look on Casual Friday. Sometimes not even a Tee Fury shirt is appropriate for where your day takes you.

So you’ve got to introduce the word “understated” into your cosplay vocabulary. Also “subtle,” “influenced,” and “inspired” are useful, too. When I do my twice-monthly treasure hunt at my favorite off-price department store or thrift shop, I go in with one question: “Who am I shopping for today?” That question has a hundred answers. Hermione? Which version, canon or fanfic? Rogue? ‘90s or more current? Kaylee? Cute and frilly, or greasy mechanic?

Lately, of course, I’ve been one-track-minded on Once Upon a Time. Does this sweater look like Mary Margaret would have it in her closet? Would August carry this bag? Do these shoes look like Mr. Gold would wear them? (Yes, I secretly-not-so-secretly cosplay my patient husband, too.) If it fits and it’s priced nicely, it’s coming home with me.

So in the spirit of my shopping adventures and my love of cosplaying, I’d like to share with you the method to my madness. When I want to wear something my favorite characters wear, I don’t always look for replicas. Cosplay on the cheap means saving on money and effort. A quick trip to one’s favorite discount shop can provide amazing results. Today we’re going to use Payless Shoe Source as an example of how to find “inspired” footwear for our Once Upon a Time casual cosplays.

NerdyBound: The Avengers

One of my favorite loves in life is anything and everything to do with Joss Whedon. So when I heard he was directing and writing The Avengers movie I had extremely high hopes and I was not disappointed. The Avengers would come to be my favorite movie of 2012 (along with everyone else that saw it, I’m sure). It was an unquenchable obsession with Loki/Tom Hiddleston that jump started my journey down that cyber rabbit hole known as Tumblr. I had always been a Marvel fan, but now I was in the Marvel fandom! I’ve made lifelong friends in this fandom and I basically got to go to my first San Diego Comic Con because of this fandom. I’m so happy that the Marvel Universe is a part of this superhero cinematic golden era we’re currently in because I get see my heroes come to life. We can criticize the mistakes movie adaptations make until we’re blue in the face, but you can’t deny the magic those movies bring to the fan experience. We get to cosplay outside of Cons, midnight screenings become instant fan meet-ups and, you know, if you’ve been to a good midnight screening, you know they’re kind of akin to a rock concert, the energy level is that amazing. Movies bring more fans, and with that comes more merchandise which equals more fan events. So, yes I’ll probably criticize with the best of them, but for now I’m just thanking the geek gods that Joss Whedon still manned the helm for The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

I’m so excited for the premiere of Age of Ultron! I can’t wait to see their interpretations of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. Although I wish Loki could be the villain in every Avengers movie, I have to admit those trailers featuring Ultron with James Spader’s sexy voice had me going. So in honor of the premiere next weekend, I’m dedicating this NerdyBound to The Avengers! I just want to give a quick shout out to Hot Topic who is currently killing it in the everyday cosplay game. I’m a huge fan of their Orphan Black line and they’ve recently announced their new Avengers line. All of the looks are retro inspired takes on The Avengers, they’re all available in plus sizes, and I need to own every piece. I’m honestly so impressed and I can’t wait to see what fandom they do next. I didn’t use every piece in their line, but I felt I should mention it since I’m doing looks for the Avengers and if it were me reading this, I’d want a link to the line ASAP. There are so many Avengers to choose from, but I decided to stay true to the movies and only feature the film’s core group, as this is in honor of the premiere of Age of Ultron. I also had to feature Loki of course, because I would never not feature him in anything having to do with The Avengers. I hope you’re inspired to try one of these looks for the premiere!
