So now you’re a h e r o ?
this is really nice alongside the “maybe i’m not [a monster]” gifset. that recognition that goodness is contingent, gain-able, lose-able, is what makes Regina so fucking compelling. “today i am. tomorrow maybe i’ll fuck it up” (and she does for a minute).
i so love that incredible gray-ness of her. how different from the black-and-white mindset hat the show itself seems to espouse sometimes via the Charmings or that the more simplistic subsets of the fandom use to whitewash their poor victims of manpain and declare Regina irredeemable.
