The show will never be the same...

I gotta say, Season 4 is probably my least favorite season because of this. Rumple is my favorite character because his is a story I could really get behind and sympathize with. And after all the amazing heart-wrenching things he went through in Season 3, including the Sacrifice he made for everyone...and then coming back to loose Balefire again but marry Belle, he was cemented as a great character. But when he was with Belle finally, it made it seem like he finally had everything he wanted. (That scene where they dance to Beauty and the Beast had me in tears)

And then...That hat.

I'm sorry but I have never seen anything SO forced. To me, I just don't see Rumple relapsing this badly. Sure his time as the Dark One in the enchanted forest showed him doing some bad things, but there was always a hint of humanity and reason to them. But when he got that Hat, he just turned so cruel and did everything without regard. The way he manipulated Hook was kind of sickening.

And then when he tries to find the Author and gets rewritten into that Bullshit's just dumb. All of it is dumb. And then they still tried to keep him a sympathetic character by essentially retconning most of what he did being...under orders.

This looks amazing! That scene was heartbreaking. And this really does it justice!

This is so sad! Rumple totally deserved what he got, but I felt so bad for Belle.

Heidi, didn't this scene break your heart?

You know I truly believed that my heart couldn't heart more than the scene where Belle smashed the tea cup against the wall when Gold visited her. Or Gold sacrificing himself to destroy Peter Pan. Unfortunately, "Once Upon A Time" has proven me wrong. I saw this art before watching the episode, but it still hurt to watch the episode. Hardest thing that Belle had to do and I knew she would do it, but I just want them to live happily ever after together.

Aaaaaaaaaand the emotions are back
Rassilon001 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2015
That was easily one of the most emotional scenes in the series.  My heart HURT after watching it.  And you capture every single emotion for us to see here.  The pain, the fear, the heartache, and maybe just a bit of pride in Belle being a hero by sacrifice her own heart to save everyone else.

This is everything that scene was. Brilliant. Now, excuse me, I must go punch something on behalf of Gold being such an idiot as to think he could fool Belle, cry for my pride that Belle made her stand not to take anything more from the man, and then beat my pillows senseless at the injustice of it all.

[Bae! *sob* Rumple was starting to try to try to be a good man when you where around! Tears ]

So much sad ;_;
JoeyHazelLM Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I was so proud of belle ... you totally got all the emotion of this scene here ;^;
TheHKX Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2014
This is just perfect! It captures the scene well and that "Please Belle, I'm afraid!" in Rumpel's whimpering tone just broke my heart... even though that bum really deserved it...

Was anybody else put off a bit with the next scene? I mean, what were the editors thinking showing us the stickily happy final scenes with Elsa and Anna (weddings, sisterly love confessions, riding off into the sunset hand in hand) immediately after breaking our hearts with this?! :D
Kind of a weird choice in my eyes...

I died. This is beautiful.
MissGolightly29 Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ugh I love this soo much! That scene was a punch in the heart :( You captured the poignancy of the scene so well :D I'd love to fave it but my friend is still starting to watch the third season and she don't want to be spoiled so I have to wait patiently until she watches it LOL But I just freaking love it :heart: such wonderful angst!

I was heartbroken when this happened, but I had to agree with Belle on this.Waaaah! :( (Sad)  Beautiful art though. :) (Smile) 
WhiteTigeress18 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014
So sad... I felt horrible for Belle because I'm sure she didn't want to send him away completely, but she realized that was the only way to make sure he didn't hurt anyone else. Rumple on the other hand I had lost all sympathy for, he got his comeuppance. I guess he wasn't lying when he told her all those years ago that his power meant more to him than she did. Why do they have to be so tragic?! :cries: 
vampirelover466 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
i cried when this happened!! you did an amazing job i love the way you drew it!! :)
I'm so mad about this >< but Rumple did deserve it... I honestly think that being the Wicked Witch's slave really messed up his mind... because before he died, I think he really did change :P

I'm not caught up so I don't know what this means yet, but damn this is gorgeously illustrated.
djeffers Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I remembering thinking to myself that it was only a matter of time before he lost Belle and that I would feel no sympathy for him.

However, when it was actually happening, you couldn't help but feel sorry for him. His greed cost him his happiness. 
ThatMadGray Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
It is sad. 

Rumple is a man dealing with an addiction to power and control who just lost everything because of his addiction.

I can't see it as just pure greed.
hell0-n0vember Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I watched it yesterday. It was like: omg... omg... o.m.g! xD
Your art is great: I like the composition and all the feelings. It's great job!
