Anonymous asked: But we haven't even seen Robin that much, the fact that he's a thief and that he has a son is literally all we know. And we all know there is so much more to Emma than that (kinda sucks that you're summing her up like that tbh) for all we know they could be totally different. You can't just go out crying that he's the male version of her when we have such little information of robin. and regina and emma have barely begun to be on friendly terms, not at all 'possibly more'.
And yes we do not know a lot about Robin and there is a lot more to Emma than what I’ve said. I know that. But it still doesn’t diminish the fact that Robin is in some ways a copy of Emma in the most basic of ways. Of course each one will have a lot of other individual traits and we should not oversimplify them but sometimes reducing a character to some very simple core traits can show how in it’s conception a they are not that different and in fact Robin Hood is a copy of Emma.
Not sure how familiar you are with Sailor Moon but I’ve sort of seen it done before in the anime. When Mamoru was gone Seiya came in Usagi’s life and tried everything to get Usagi to like him/her. Even their interactions resembled those of Mamoru/Usagi of s1 all the way down to bickering and then Seiya saving Usagi’s ass in almost every episode. They even had Seiya make an entrance like Mamoru used to by throwing a rose, had the red rose as a symbol. Of Course Seiya and Mamoru were very different but on some basic level they were also very similar. Usagi still chose Mamoru, she never saw Seiya as more than a friend anyway, but yeah, similarities. Seiya was also (at least in the anime) a male in civilian form, female in soldier form, was from another solar system, was Usagi’s age, was part of a team, loyalties were with Kakyuu, unlike Mamoru who only had Usagi.
now have a look at this:
See my point?
I’m not saying that RH is not unique in his own way! He is unique in a way and obviously so is Emma. All that I’m saying is that in a very basic way Robin Hood is a replacement for Emma and an intentional replacement at that. He takes some of those basic Emma Swan characteristics and somehow he and Roland are gonna play an important role in Regina’s life, a role that should be occupied by Henry and Emma. Regina should be the one to have full custody of Henry, but instead of that she’s given a replacement family where she can have full custody of Roland instead. If Emma and Regina end up together they can both have full custody of Henry and that’s what I want. That’s what Robin replaces.
Robin basically replaces the Swan-Mills family unit. He replaces this:
The above 3 pictures show the possibility of more - yes they can be so canon - don’t even get me started on Henry’s last name since he’s both Mills and Swan basically Swan-Mills come 3b. So yes based on 3x11 there is huge potential for more. it just needs a leap of faith.
That’s why I do not like OQ. It could be good but it rips apart the Swan-Mills family who have been with us more or less being a family unit since s1.
We’ve always had team mom, but now that RH is in the picture, clearly there to replace Emma I don’t know what wold be left of all of that. And it’s sad because s3 had a lot of progress - family hugs, “mom, mama”, “our son”, “my moms… both of them”
So yes in a basic way Robin Hood replaces that and OQ is a wanna be SQ.
