I Ain't No Willy Loman

annieedisons asked: Emma/August


thank you thank you thank you

 send me a ship and I will tell you:

when or if I started shipping it: I officially started shipping it in “The Stranger” when it was revealed that he came through the wardrobe too. I was done and sold.  

my thoughts: I really like {Season 2 has me confused because he’s been absent] their friendship in season 1. I think he understands her more than she’d like. They have a good foundation as friends and I truly believe that he cares about her. But neither are perfect, looking at their pasts, they both have the tendency to choose flight instead of fight. Which an interesting dynamic in my opinion because they realize they need to get over that and take action, Emma fighting for Henry, August fighting for Emma, trying to get her to believe even though he had broken the promise he had made to his father.

What makes me happy about them: When they take rides on his motorcycle and just them talking. I like the scenes where he’s trying his hardest to help her. He’s one of the few people she can trust.

What makes me sad about them: The events of Tallahassee  Looking through tags, a lot of people don’t like him and that makes me sad. But that doesn’t mean I forgive him or that I hate him. It’s makes it complicated because when Emma finds out [ because she’s gonna find out] she’ll not have only lied to Henry but it made her life take a different course and I don’t think she’ll forgive him or Neal very easily. But the thing is that August never had bad intentions, he was acting in her best interests but the way he did it was not the best. It’s makes for great angst and I’m okay with that.

things done in fanfic that annoys me: The few fics I’ve read aren’t very good. They’re out of character. A lot of them were written before season 2—-a thing that annoys me is when they make him Henry’s biological dad. No. Just no. Or one where Emma just gets over what he did. That wouldn’t happen. Or when he calls her ‘princess’. No. They’re both from the same world but they didn’t grow up there so I don’t see him calling her that or her being okay with that. Or when they have a baby. I’m not fond of that. Probably because my personal headcanon is that August is unable to produce kids. Because, you know, he’s was carved of wood not made of real genetics.

things I look for in fanfic: I like angst. I like good characterization. I like fictional hurdles. Too many fics have them just be together without any stepping stone. It’s too perfect. They forget their friendship, which is my favorite thing about them.

Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: If they don’t end together [which one of my otps ever are] I don’t see Emma ending up with anyone as that’s not what the show’s technically about. I see Emma being happy with Henry and I would be okay if August remained her friend. I guess.

My happily ever after for them: August adding Emma’s story to the book as they, along with Henry get ready to leave Storybrooke. [I’m a romantic at the end of the day okay?]

who is the big spoon/little spoon: I don’t see Emma has being a voluntary spooning kind of person, but when she falls asleep and her defenses are down is when August sneakily holds her.

what is their favorite non-sexual activity: When they go out for a ride on his motorcycle to drink water from the well.
