what do you think of the argument that rumbelle is abusive and stockholm syndrome? while I don't agree with it wholly, i do think there are some thigns rumple has done to belle that are not forgivable no matter the circumstances and i think it's not entirely right for her to be so forgiving towards him.
Rumbelle is not abusive. It’s the same argument as ‘CS is rape culture’. It’s all character development. Belle made Rumple a better person through love, just as Emma did to Killian.
Although I love Rumple (he’s my favorite character, just because Robert plays the part so well) and Belle, I’ll play devil’s advocate here and admit that I can’t deny the fact that their relationship is… well, not a very healthy one.
As someone who was in an emotionally abusive relationship off and on for three years, I can sympathize with Belle being as forgiving as she is. I made that same mistake waaay too many times myself. When I’m watching scenes involving Rumbelle I continually have to remind myself “suspension of disbelief,” as is the case with most television romance.
The idea that “Belle’s love is what keeps Rumple in check, that Rumple relies solely on Belle’s love to remain good, that Belle’s love is enough for the two of them,” while it may be good for ‘storytelling’, is an unrealistic one. I know as well as anyone else who has been a victim of this type of a relationship (and made it out) that it’s naive to believe that your “love, if it’s strong enough” can fix an abusive partner, earning their love in return. And yes, although Rumble does love Belle to some extent, he is an addict (another discussion entirely) and is indeed an abusive partner. Not only has he been verbally and physically abusive in the past (shoving her into a dungeon), but he has put his needs before hers a number of times, and he lies to her on a regular basis. Hell, their very marriage is based on a lie that he told her, and I’m very curious to see Belle’s reaction when she finds out about the dagger. (Although I’m sure she’ll forgive him, as usual, so the writers can keep spewing all that true love business). It’s a never ending cycle with these two. They may be happy for a while, but like any abusive relationship, it will continue through the cycle of hurt, apologies, forgiveness, and eventually come back around to hurt to start all over again.
Anyhoot, as I said before, loving your partner with all your might is never going to give you the power to change them. He/she is the only one with the power to make that change, and 9 times out of 10, it just doesn’t happen. But, again, it is a television show with an often skewed view on love. I suppose we’ll see how it all turns out for Rumple and Belle in the upcoming this season.
Hey Just wondering if you know Any other blogs with smut fanart That's always active?
This response is probably gonna sound bitchy or whiny, and I apologize in advance.
I’m guessing this comment’s being made because I’ve been on hiatus lately myself. Sorry, but aside from being overall icky lately, I’ve gotten a little irritated with the fandom and just needed to step back for a little while. As a result I’ve been drawing less, but I doubt I’d be drawing smut anyway… I guess you could say I’m kind of sexually depressed. But believe me when I say, I hope to back in business and be over all of this shit soon. :I
Anyway, to answer your initial question, no I don’t know anyone who is constantly active. Even if an artist’s ultimate goal is to always be productive and provide constant entertainment for the fandom, just about everyone I know has a life outside of tumblr that they occasionally need to attend to. Sorry.
If there was a fic based off Dirty Dancing with Kristoff as Johnny and Anna as Baby I would read that so hard.
At first glance I thought you were telling me that there was one and I was excited. I light a candle and pray to several gods every night that hmmmBrilee gets inspiration to art it
hmmmbrilee I mean, if ya wanna you should..maybe…please?
Girl don’t work for free but I’d start a pool to make it happen
I will happily donate to the cause!
I will also donate my Canadian dollars
I have never seen Dirty Dancing.
Don’t feel bad Aimee, I may get shunned for this but I never really liked it. Although I always liked the lake scene, that’s about it.
Yes! No need to feel shame! It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but was such a quintessential part of my childhood I think I was forced to like it lmao
You guys really wanna see me draw it? It warms my heart that you guys like my art that much. I love you all. <3<3<3
But I’ll be honest, someone would have to give me all the details, because the only Dirty Dancing I’ve ever seen is Havana Nights. :>
