Merry Christmas to me.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT
I’M IN HEAVEN
Who wants to write the one where Bae returns to the EF and falls in love with a princess and has no idea that her parents secretly captured his father the DO thirty years prior?
I really wanted an explanation for how Neal got back to the Enchanted Forest especially considering Rumple was apparently imprisoned the entire time so it couldn’t have been his doing.
Maybe he never left? There was no portal, he just ran away and did some deed that got him made a squire and eventually a knight?
The problem with that is the timeline. There’s a couple of hundred years between Rumple becoming the Dark One/stuff going down with Bae, and then Emma and present day people. So Bae would have had to chill somewhere else for a while – land of untold stories perhaps? I mean that would be a good place to run. Maybe rather than a bean, the blue fairy gave him a key?
