oh, take me back to the start.
I know this is an SQ graphic, but I think it’s just awesome fanart.
"You said I could let go of the anger that was weighing me down, and suddenly it felt like without it I would just float away."
A real moment with Regina and I think she broke me.
best picture ever.
I find that statement to be:

Once Upon a Time Moments That I Love
#28 - Don’t you have magic?
This moment, this look on Emma’s face, this moment of actual and complete realisation that she is in so out of her depth sealed my love for this character almost as much as the chainsaw.
This is a woman with no faith, no belief in anything. She never believed in anyone or anything because all she had ever known was what it was to be let down: her parents let her down by abandoning her, her foster family let her down by sending her back, her various foster homes let her down by never being home, Henry’s father let her down, the system let her down.
But more than anything, she let herself down. She didn’t believe in herself. She didn’t trust in herself. No matter how many people told her she was the Saviour, she denied it, because HOW could she be something so incredible and so special, if no one ever wanted her?
This is the moment that she realised that not only was Henry right about the curse, but he was right about everything else, and he was right about her. The one person who believed in her staked his life on knowing exactly who she was and what she was capable of.
“It’s all true” isn’t just about the magic. It’s about the fact that she’s the only one she can save her son. She, the person who can’t believe in anyone or anything, has to believe in herself so she can save the one person who didn’t want to let her go.
