Anonymous said: I have a new tumblr and I don't want this to be the first thing that shows up on it, but I noticed something last night and I was wondering if you could include it. Snow mentioned that her dad and mom honeymooned at that one place (can't remember what it's called right now) and literally the first thing I thought of was "dear god did he bring regina there too omg gross ugh poor regina". Which was sad because I actually love Snow and Charming and I liked that they conceived Emma in what should
have been a special place and yet I was thinking “ew gross that’s probably where leopold took regina too”. So I couldn’t even enjoy it. *sigh* Fuck you, King Leopold.
It was the Summer Palace, and tbh, I wouldn’t be surprised if Leopold didn’t ever take Regina there, because that was his and Eva's special place, and he didn't want the unfavorite wife ruining his shrine to the dead wife. In “Heart of Darkness,” Regina was en route to the Summer Palace when Snow tried to assassinate her (and Charming stopped her, and then got arrested by George's men, and Regina had to drop what she was doing to go save his ass and use him to get Snow to eat the apple), and I kinda can't help but think that she was going to purposely defile all traces of Leopold and Eva there. Like, if Leopold had dragged her there numerous times to pretend that she was Eva, I just feel like she would have burned the place to the ground. But if he never let her step foot there because she wasn't “worthy,” I can see her going there fairly often and destroying all of Eva's shit.
Either way, though, can we agree that Leopold is an ass for having a palace built right around the corner from a gorgon’s lair?!? I mean damn man, there had to be better locations in the entirety of his kingdom than there.
