So many people will say this isn't a real ship since they never were "together" throughout the entire show. But I think that isn't just what makes a ship real. Swanqueen was one of the first relationships in the entire show, it was there since the first chapter. We all witnessed the evolution of these two wonderful characters that are Emma Swan and Regina Mills. They started fighting over their already shared son, then they found a way to co-parent him and they became so much more than just that afterwards. We may have never gotten the chance of seeing the potential as a couple. But that is not what makes it my OTP of Once Upon a Time. Despite what many people would say, they understand each other better than any other character does, they both have different pasts, they both were molded into a person they weren't, they were used and they suffered a lot. And they were strong enough to overcome all that pain and become the heroes of their own stories. They were there for each other since the beginning, offered comfort and understanding when everything else was falling apart and they felt like they couldn't fit. And they became a family. They are the mothers of a beautiful already grown up boy named Henry. And they also represent a really big part of our society. I also think that this ship gave hope to all those girls and boys that didn't know how to describe their feelings or didn't know how to make them known. And I am one of those people. Swanqueen gave me hope, and for that, it will always be the OTP of this series for me. And, being honest, it would have been completely epic and ouat-like if Emma had broken the first curse kissing Regina. The latter's True Love returned for that same person that, unknowingly, took it away. And to finish, this is not to enter a ship war, since that's just useless, we all have our reasons to ship whatever characters we want. I actually like almost ouat ships, I don't have nothing against OQ or CS, never have and never will. But Swanqueen will always mean everything to me! So thanks so much, @jenmorrisonlive and @lparrilla for making believe that nothing is impossible and to have hope.
