Just learned that Rumbelle is one of those ships you never want to read the discussion about — one that brings out the heated debate.
Oh well. Their episodes are my favorite. It may be a relationship with issues, but it’s also pretty much the only relationship on this show I can stand.
Everyone in the fairy tale world has one true love. This entire show is about “true love.” So, what if yours is slightly evil? There is nothing that comes above your true love, but not everyone in the world is a good person. So, if you get one like him, you can’t change it. You can’t stop loving him.
And he loves her, but he’s still half of the villainous duo with heart. I enjoy seeing it play out between these two when it isn’t a super sweet romance.
And Belle. I like Belle. She’s a lot meeker than most of the women on this show, but she didn’t back down to her father or Rumpley. Not everyone in this world is a Regina or an Emma.
