There's such a sad love
Deep in your eyes.
A kind of pale jewel
Open and closed
Within your eyes.
I'll place the sky
Within your eyes.

oKAY BUT CAN I JUST POINT SOMETHING OUT IN THIS SCENE WHERE KILLIAN DROPS EMMA OFF?

as a fellow film student here (hi there), I’m always told by my teacher that during the shooting of my practicals/short films, a scene should be properly lit to show an actor’s face unless the lack of light is purposeful to the film/plot and deliberate. (make sure you remember this. it’s important for the entire meta)

When Emma and Killian are together in a shot, they’re properly lit and you can see their faces clearly.

image

When they kiss, the lighting is extremely bright and manages to capture the entirety of both their faces.

I don’t know about you but I’m pretty sure that this reflects their lives when they’re with each other. Emma is Killian’s light just as much as Killian is Emma’s. Together they share light-hearted moments worth shining a light upon as opposed to all the dark times in their lives.

THAT is what I think the intention of the lighting is in this part of the scene.

Now let’s fast forward to after Emma enters the apartment and closes the door…

I never ignore the visuals of the mise en scène (everything that appears in front of the camera) in a shot. So what’s so special about this moment?

image

^^ This is when Emma closes the door and is no longer in the presence of Killian. Not only do we see the light on Killian’s face disappearing, we also see that Killian is standing more towards the right side of the mise en scène/shot. This somehow gives an illusion that there’s something missing in the shot and as it is missing, it’s somewhat sad. The audience sees that Emma is what’s missing since she was previously standing to the left of the frame. As Emma is missing, so is the light that was previously there. Or in other words, Killian’s light.

(I shall rewind back to when I said that I’ve been told lighting, or lack of lighting, is often used deliberately)

image

Killian’s face turning dark also reflects his past life as a pirate and what his life was like before Emma. Past!Killian didn’t have love (not after when Liam and Milah died) nor did he have light in his life.

What I’m trying to say is: this use of cinematography further addresses and reflects how much Emma means to Killian.

With Emma, his life has moments worth shining a light on.

The lighting also shows how much Killian means to Emma when they’re both under bright lighting. i’M SORRY I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT ANYMORE I’M JUST A BUNDLE OF EMOTION LYING ON THE FLOOR LEAVE ME BE

oh and i’m sorry this was rUDE

So wht didn't Hook just tell Emma the truth?

captain--kitten:

Because he’s mad at himself?

Because he’s unsure of how she’ll react?

Because he’s trying to protect her?

Because he just hasn’t had the chance yet?

I mean, who knows.

But he will tell her, he always does.

I think a lot of us are forgetting a crucial element to Killian Jones:

HOMEBOY IS A SERIOUS DRAMA QUEEN. Bless him.

(He actually reminds me of Sirius Black in this aspect. A lot.)

I mean just look at this fucker:

(gif: x)

He’s standing there like a goddamn Backstreet Boy at the start of a concert, and then with the hiding his new hand behind his back for that dramatic reveal (which Emma totally misses lolololol x eternity) I can’t even deal.

He just has a flair for the dramatic, he always has. 

Look, this asshole’s heart is bigger than his head. It’s one of his best qualities, but it can also get him into jams from time to time. On top of this, he’s pretty much the definition of a Byronic anti-hero, all broody and melodramatic. One of the most beautiful things about Captain Swan is that Emma anchors him and balances out the light and dark within him. 

But he’s still a dramatic, sassy, beautiful, broody, dashing rapscallion. And he always will be.

Straddling the line between Disneybounding and costuming tonight for Mickey’s Halloween Party as Killian Jones. Husband is going as Disney’s Smee.

This is the first time I got him to do a couple’s costume, and this is what we do, lol.

Can we take a minute to talk about Emma’s reaction when Killian showed up with the hook back? And by reaction I mean a shoulder shrug and a nod because she loves Killian and doesn’t care about anything that petty. Their love is perfect.

More than that, Snow had to tell her to look because she didn’t notice, because for her he’s not Hook or Hand, he’s Killian and she sees past that, because she sees him

Thoughts on Rumple after tonight?
asked by Anonymous

onceuponamirror:

Not surprised? Rumple did what Rumple does. 

I mean—like we can see in the episode, he brings out the worst in Killian, but Killian also brings out the worst in Rumple. I love their dynamic because both men like to really talk about how much they’ve changed for love, but around each other, they can kind of lay the cards on the table—because one is always eager to point out to the other that they’ve got a long ways to go. 

Belle and Emma make them realize who they want to be, but Hook and Rumple make each other remember who they used to be. 

And them having to work together for the rest of the season is going to finally make them address that. But they also have a really polar way of thinking; Killian is all about the little moments, and Rumple is always focused on the big picture. Around each other, they may eventually find that the other has advice to offer, regarding redemption and love. 

Anyway—Rumple has always been a slippery fish, and that’s sort of what’s so great about him. I don’t look at Rumple and ask him to do the right thing. He’s the dark one, so he’s going to do dark things. I’ve always said that Rumple has the longest way to go for redemption, because he’s so self aware and still makes decisions he knows are manipulative and wrong. 

I like that about Rumple, so I’m not angry. Anyway—I’ll talk more about him in the meta tomorrow. Gotta save some stuff for later!

But can we talk for one second about the way Emma leans on the door after her goodnight kiss? The look on her face screams I LOVE THIS GUY. She's just beginning to realize it and she takes a few seconds to try and come to terms with the reality in her heart and mind. And those brief moments tell a LOT of where this relationship will go. She will see Killian in a different light after this, and when things look bad, let's not forget that the road to TL was never easy, or anyone would have it! =)
