Once Upon a Time Hiatus Sickness

Published July 8, 2015 by sefra mack

Hola, fellow oncers! Just a quickie! It’s been a long time since I’ve regaled you with my various tales from the land of geekdom, but I’m feeling it today. The muses, the sirens, the fae…they’re all singing to me ♥

If you’re like me, & the hell hiatus (aka summer) is starting to get to you, your options are super limited. You can bow to the network gods & adopt a provisional series (face off on Syfy will save me in a couple weeks ♥), you can scour the internet for spoilers & script teases (just a band-aid for a bullet wound), or you can get creative ☺

In my quest towards procrastination (I’ve elevated it to an Olympic event), I’ve discovered a few awesome ways to do this: crafting, fan-fiction, role playing, & my current favorite: throwback photos & gifs.

“Magic is Coming”…well, it friggin better be!

I got sooo into the fan groups & pages today on Facebook! Speculation on returning characters, how Emma will handle being the dark one (gonna be badass, y’all!), & the biggest question put to me today: Who created the dark one??! Because as the writers of Once have repeatedly told us, evil is not born, its made!

Now while we can argue in circles about certain things (no, Killian is NOT a womanizer; he’s a flirt, & he’s a pirate. what more do you people want from him?!!? lol), one thing is very clear to me: these characters are amazing. These tales have been a part of our culture for literally hundreds of years; everyone knows Grimm fairy stories, & has seen the original Disney interpretations, & yet there is new depth, development, & facets of these characters being revealed & invented before our eyes. It has been a joy to experience!

Remembering the people they started out as, & the great twists & turns we’ve traveled with them on their various journeys of discovery, is just mind blowing. Soooo, I took a lil throwback time all to meself as I watched Netflix today, & created a collage.

The above images were among the promotional photos for season 2 of Once Upon a Time: All 8 main characters, dressed as their fairy tale personae, but set in the “modern” backdrop of our beloved Storybrooke ♥

So, yes…my first time back on WordPress is to celebrate those early moments of one of my favorite shows ♥ I can’t wait to return to Storybrooke in the fall! (& the Enchanted Forest, & Arendelle, & Camelot…..oh, baby…I’m ready!!!)


Alan Rickman Played an Epic Prank on Daniel Radcliffe While Filming Harry Potter

oh those wacky wizards 🙂 ❤


Daniel Radcliffe, who’s busy promoting his new film Horns, took to Reddit to answer troves of questions for fans this week.

Unsurprisingly, the fans were itching for answers to Harry Potter queries from the actor who played The Boy Who Lived. When asked about the best prank that was played on the Potter set, Radcliffe replied, “I should probably [tell] about the one that was pulled on ME, rather than any I pulled. Because it came from a very unexpected place.”

The unexpected place? The mind of Alan Rickman, who played Professor Severus Snape, Harry’s bête noire at Hogwarts. Rickman pranked Radcliffe on the set of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban with a jape that sounds like something Fred and George Weasley might have pulled off.

“There’s a shot in the great hall of all the kids sleeping in the great hall, and the camera starts very…
