just breathe, Swan
#I LITERALLY CANNOT DEAL WITH THIS #look at her #she’s getting up from the ground and finds Regina #still breathing hard from being knocked out #but Regina is here #the danger is gone #and her shoulders relax #she just kind of sinks because Regina is here #she’s been looking for her the past week#and here she is #danger averted #family returned #she has a chance to make it right again #But Regina doesn’t even look at her #and she disappears #and literally #the next scenE EMMA IS CHASING AFTER HER. I just can’t (via insanetwin)
But guys, look at Regina. She’s still angry. She still leaves, but look at how she holds Emma’s gaze and also breathes.
"Yes, I’m here. I’m still pissed at you, but I’m here. I saved you, your stupid father, your icky pirate, and your precious Marian."

“Last Friday these two guys were tossing around a ball and one guy nailed the other right in the face. I mean, it was a mess, blood everywhere, the nurse came out, the place was in chaos, his girlfriend was all freaking out, and you just sat there and read. I mean, you never even looked up. I thought, ‘I have never seen anyone read so intensely before in my entire life. I have to meet that girl.’”
If you haven’t watched this show you are really missing out.
"…Haig made Elsa’s fear feel like real anxiety, which is what this character is all about. Elsa is a woman who lives in a constant state of worry that something will make her so afraid that she’ll lose control again, and that’s something people with anxiety can strongly relate to. It’s also something Haig captured perfectly—that fear of yourself and who you are when your anxiety is at its worst. From her shaking hands and her tight fists as she struggled to control her magic just walking down the street to her struggle to control her breathing as she hid, the physical details of her anxiety were heartbreaking."

#this is acting at it’s best #in the blink of an eye she channels a thousand emotions #from fake mirth to ruthless loathing to suppressed grief and abject hopelessness #this one moment is enough to capture all the frailties in this character #this ladies and gentlemen is why Meryl Streep is called the greatest actor ever.
