Rumplestiltskin

by H0lyhandgrenade
Chris knows there's something out there better for her. She's young, cute, downtrodden (in her opinion) and orphaned; How can she not be destined for greatness?

When the chance to prove her worth comes along, she can hardly turn it down... Just a pity the only person she gets for company is a mysterious obnoxious masked fellow who just can't seem to leave her alone.

Only HOly can turn a folklore tale into Jerry Springer and still have it make sense and be better.
Turns out this is a last ditch attempt to pull at her heartstrings to get things going in his direction again.
Wouldn't put it past him.
He'll reveal that he loved her ever since they were friends back in the day. I just know he will.
You're tearing me apart, Lisa!
@Guest: If ya love'em, ya let 'em go if they need to go. Their success is what you want if you love them.

Maybe this is all it takes to make a marriage work--two people who are determined to support each other and who are equally willing to bend and shape their own aims so that they can stay together. It can take quite a bit of ingenuity.
@internet's queen: ........... will alwaaaaaay looooooove yoooooooooooooooouuUUUUUuuuuuuu
Interesting. Understandable, really. But I was looking for an answer along the lines of this; you know this creature has seemingly manipulated you for quite a while now. He blackmails you, makes you work for a stubborn ruler, kidnaps your son... all that jazz.
But, it's fine.
People have different reactions to things I suppose.
Thanks for the reply!
AND AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIII...
@Guest: Weird you should ask, I almost said in the authors comment... Whenever anyone's confessed their love to me, I've pretty much always just ended up wearing the same expression that Chris is wearing lol.
Yeesh....@Hoyhandgernade, what would YOU do in a situation like this...? :/
"Oh- This is so sudden!"
@Seruta: lol. Good one.
@MK_Wizard: My experience is most mothers and fathers fall in love with their children after birth and many before so the timing really is a moot point. I would wait until the end before passing judgement.

That said, he IS the villain of this story...or is he?
@Seruta: Honestly, I don't find that arguments holds any water anymore and I don't find it ever did. Whatever are the ways of his people, nothing makes taking away a kid ok, making sick deals or agonising the woman you can't have.
@MK_Wizard: He had.... "Fair" reasons to do such things....

.... just sayin'...
He has a lot of guts. Rumple was no better and he tried to take her kid away. Yes, I am well aware that she consented to the heinous deal, but still, who makes a deal like that? And after she got to love the kid? No amount of love justifies his actions. Love is kind, love knows no spite and love means sacrifice. If he loved her oh so much despite her flaws, why didn’t he reach a halfway point? In other words, nobody leaves ANYTHING behind? They see each other and maintain their bond as they are?

I am all for marriage and how precious it is, but I am also not blind, ignorant or prejudice. Some romances are more successful and happier without marriage. There are lots of beautiful romantic couples who don’t marry and their love works out great. Rumple and Chris could have worked it out if it wasn’t for being stuck on the “giving it all up”mentality. I mean look at the King (of hypocrites) and Chris. They are married and their relationship is based on abuse and control. Like I said before, Rumple and Chris could have been happy together if only both of them accepted that they didn’t need to be married (or something like it) for it to work.
Hooray for main characters who admit their faults and failures!!
@MK_Wizard:

I definitely agree with you and, honestly, that seems intentional on the author's part. Chris is an incredibly flawed person and her situation is largely her own doing.

But I appreciate that Chris herself seems to acknowledge this. Doesn't automatically make her a better person, but it does show some growth and introspection.
I bet he'll ask her to guess his name. I bet his current name isn't his real name.
I love how offended the king looks here. Also, the fact that Chris kinda owns her shit is a treat.
