Wow, I haven’t posted anything on here since January. Anyway, with the second season of Once Upon A Time having finished on the 12th, there are some things that I didn’t quite get. The things are pretty summed up in the two links I’m posting.

I know it’s a week since the Once Upon A Time season 2 premiere, but I wanted to get my thoughts out before the second episode airs tonight at 7:00 Hawaii time. I have a lot of questions dealing with the episode. A majority of the questions are pretty much summed up in the following articles. However, I have additional questions.
- How did Mulan and Prince Philip know how long they were frozen? Does time work the same in Fairytale Land?
- How can the Wraith medallion be in two different worlds at once? Or is there more than one medallion that can control the wraith? Because we see Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin holding onto it the “real” world while we also see Mulan put the medallion in a pouch and gives it to Sleeping Beauty/Aurora.
- Can the Dark One control creatures like wraiths?

What Happened to Fairytale Land After the Curse on Once Upon a Time?
Again, I am doing another book review on a book so I won’t forget what happened in the book, and my thoughts about it. The book I’m going to talk about in this post is Bewitching by Alex Flinn, and you can find a description here. A little forewarning though, I’m going to talk about some spoilers. Overall, I thought that the book was interesting. I really liked how the author incorporated various fairytales into the overall story, especially the one dealing with the Titanic. However, with that comes a warning. You have to know the each of the fairytales to understand the individual stories. The stories that you need to know is Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, The Princess and the Pea, and The Little Mermaid. I also have a small warning for the Little Mermaid. You have to actually read the Hans Christian Andersen version, and not go solely on the 1989 movie. It will make a difference. The substory dealing with The Little Mermaid follows the plot of the original Hans Christian Andersen version much better than the 1989 movie. Anyway, I have a bit of a problem with the overall story. Personally, I don’t like how two of the smaller stories are not directly involved with the Emma storyline or the introduction of Kendra. I mean, I can see the relevance of the other stories to showing how Kendra has good intentions and how it can lead to unfortunate consequences. But I feel like the other two stories are a distraction to the main story of Emma. Anyway, I think that this story could lend itself to be turned into a TV show along the same lines of Once Upon A Time. I also think that if you like fairy tale inspired stories, like Once Upon A Time, you’ll like Bewitching.
