I Love My Red Hair

When you’re a kid, you want to fit in. The last thing you want is to stick out like a sore thumb. When you’re a redhead, you stick out whether you like it or not.

Though I am proud of my red hair now, there were many times as a kid that I wished that my hair was another color. It took many years and a lot of work, but at nearly 40, I have come to love my hair.

Today is National Redhead Day. Thanks to this day, How to be a Redhead and three of the characters below (which is a short version of a very long list), I appreciate my hair in ways that I did not in the past.

Zelena-Once Upon a Time (Rebecca Mader)

Zelena is a redheaded badass because she knows what she wants and she goes after it. Though she may not (at least in the beginning) care that she is hurting others, it is her confidence and her one-liners that makes me proud to be a redhead.

MeraAquaman (Amber Heard)

Mera is a queen in every sense of the word. But instead of being the standard female royal who waits for things to happen (i.e. rescued from the big bad), Mera takes charge of her own life. She is also unafraid to stand up for what is right, even if that means going into battle.

Demelza PoldarkPoldark (Eleanor Tomlinson)

It takes a strong woman to be true to herself in an era when a woman is supposed to be meek, mild and subservient to her husband. Demelza Poldark (nee Carne) may have been born a miner’s daughter, but she has not forgotten who she is. Though she is a member of the upper class through her marriage, Demelza is still a tough as nails working-class girl who is intelligent and more than capable of standing on her own two feet.

I am going to end this post with a quote for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider. It’s time to not care what others think and embrace who we are.

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”-Dr. Seuss

Belle, A Once Upon A Time Fanfiction

*-These characters belong solely to the creators of OUAT. I simply a humble fan.

*Takes place during Quiet Minds.

 

Belle

It was too much for Rumplestilskin. The voices, the memories were all jumbled up in his head. Except for one.

His Belle. The thought of her was his only hold on his sanity.

Belle, with the sweetest lips he had ever tasted.

Belle, with the bright blue eyes.

Belle, who shared their bed, night after night, not afraid of the beast inside of him.

Belle, the only person beside Bae who could call his bluff.

Belle, who continually reassured him that he was not a beast, but a man. He was her man.

Belle, who helped to heal the scars of his past. Belle, who helped him forget that Millah and his father abandoned him.

Belle, who helped him to forgive himself for putting magic before his son.

Belle, the woman he wanted to marry, the one he should have married a long time ago.

Belle, the woman he wanted to have children with, to have the opportunity to be the father he couldn’t be for Bae.

He would find a way to make Zelena pay for what she did to him. And when his task was completed, he would return to Belle and have the life that they were meant to have.

Them

*-These characters belong to Disney and the creators of OUAT. I am simply a humble fan.

*Inspired by Sunday’s mid season finale. If you haven’t seen the episode, the fic contains major spoilers.

 

Them

He loved them all. He would do anything to save them.

Rumplestilkin had to stop his father. To do that, he had to kill them both.

He watched them in suspended animation, his eyes drifting from one to another.

He loved his son, their brief reunion made up for all of the years that they had been separated.

He loved Belle; she was the only woman he had ever truly loved. If things would have been different, he would have married her a long time ago. Perhaps Rumplestilkin would have another shot at fatherhood, be the father he couldn’t be for Baelfire.

For them, he would make the ultimate sacrifice.

Evening

*-These characters belong to Disney and the creators/producers of OUAT. I am simply a humble fan temporarily borrowing them.

 *Takes place sometime in season 3

*Rated M for slightly mature content.

   Evening

“Belle?” Rumple called out from the front hallway.

 “Upstairs” she called back.

Entering their bedroom, he found her sitting up in bed, reading.

“How was dinner?”.

“Good” After returning from Neverland, Rumplestilskin had a renewed energy and a desire to maintain a relationship with his son and grandson. That resulted in a monthly boy’s night out dinner with Neal and Henry. That dinner was scheduled for tonight.

“How was the library?”.

“Good” Once a week, Belle closed up at 8 instead of 6:30. Tonight was that night.

“Did you miss me?” Rumple uncrossed her legs as Belle put the book on the night stand.

“Of course I did” she wrapped her legs around his waist as he crawled on top of her and began to undo the top buttons of her shirt.

“What is that delicious smell?” he murmured, burying himself into her cleavage.

“The library”.

“Perhaps I should visit the library more often”.

“You can visit anytime you want”.

She captured his lips with her own and the rest of the world was forgotten.

The next morning, Rumple woke up a very happy man, wearing a smile. Belle slept beside him, wearing the same smile. Perhaps they should have more evenings together.
