Once you get over your initial shock and distaste that blinds you when thinking of a same sex couple, give me a good reason why Swan Queen shouldn’t happen. If you analyse it and think about it with an open mind you would see it’s the perfect love…
From what I have seen about SQ from a lot of SQ shippers (not all), the ship seems to be is built on the fact that Emma, the Savior, saves the Evil Queen and protects her and makes her happy. I rarely ever see how Emma benefits in this relationship.
Most SQ headcanons, and some SQ fanfic/fan art that I have went through portray Emma as OOC—she basically is written as a Regina fan girl, which is not Emma at all. (I won’t say that no fandoms are innocent in this, but I have seen a ton of this with SQ, while seeing a good variety in others).
There’s also the fact that neither Regina or Emma seem to be remotely interested in the other in a sexual manner—Regina has only ever shown sexual/romantic attraction to Graham, (her rape victim) Daniel (her first love) and Robin (her Soul Mate).
Emma has only ever shown romantic or sexual attraction towards Neal (her first love) Graham (a man that she had grown to care for in a short amount of time and she may have ended up happy with) Hook (a man she is currently with) and a few one-night stands that she mentioned having.
The whole relationship is built on two women that don’t seem to like each other, that would not hang around each other normally, but only work together well for the sake of the son that they share due to complicated circumstances.
It was never built as a friendship or even a romantic or sexual relationship, nor will it ever be built as such.
First of all that’s not entirely true. Emma isn’t always pining over Regina. A lot of instances Emma is oblivious to Regina’s feelings.
I never said that it was something that was happening in the show. The idea of the relationship would be a good twist. The show is based on true love and all that. Why shouldn’t the two most troubled souls find each other?
But opinions are opinions and I don’t thrive on shooting down other’s opinions.
