|Emma and: August, Archie, Hook, Neal, and Graham|
Each? Okay, I’ll go in order of how I rank them:
Emma x August (Wooden Swan): 10/10
OTP! Seriously, they are/would have been perfect for each other. Season 1 looked like they were headed in that direction and I wish it had been followed through. I could go on and on about why I ship them, so instead I’m just going to link to some past blog postings that explain it well:
Parallels and Subtexts , All the Wooden Swan Chemistry , August Booth
Emma x Graham (Gremma): 8/10
There was true love there - their kiss broke Graham’s curse and he’s the first guy she let in after her heart was broken. *sighs* It’s beyond sad that he’s been forgotten.
Emma x Archie (Swan Cricket): 6/10
They’d make a good couple. Archie would be very supportive of Emma and when you think about it, he was kind of a father figure to Henry in Season 1. They’d be great raising Henry together. :)
Emma x Neal (Swan Thief / Swanfire): 0/10
NOTP. I didn’t hate Neal, but I never cared for him. I couldn’t warm to him, and it’s partially because he was little more than a plot device. And his relationship with Emma in Tallahassee was not healthy (to say the least). Furthermore when they meet up again in Manhattan he’s not respectful towards her then and later in the season. He shows no romantic interest in her at all until the “I love you” that came out of nowhere.
Emma x Hook (Captain Swan): -10/10
Ultimate NOTP. Rape culture, and major character derailment for both of them. That’s all I’m going to say.
