Madeline is a college student majoring in journalism with a minor in broadcasting. When she isn't writing for Hollywood News Source, Talk Nerdy With Us or her college's paper, she's drinking too much coffee and probably fangirling over Captain Swan. She also likes to watch Hallmark movies and mercilessly rewatches 'Once Upon a Time'.

‘Manifest’ is our fall show to look out for

I have been trying to get excited for a show now that Once Upon a Time has closed its book, but nothing really appealed to me. Until Manifest dopped their first trailer. Immediately, I was intrigued by the concept. Also, the fact that Josh Dallas is one of the stars of the show helped too. So here’s why we’ve […]

Fierce female TV and movie characters we love

While TV shows and movies are a great form of entertainment, they can also portray strong messages, such as strong, feminist characters. These women are strong, independent and aren’t afraid to go after what they want. All traits that the media should be teaching young men and women. Emma Swan (Once Upon a Time) It’s […]

Ships we love as much as Captain Swan

It’s been a month or so since we last Captain Swan. For the last time, might I add, and well, I miss them. However, there are still other ships out there just as great as them, both romantic and friendshipy. Is that a word? It is now. Obviously, no ship can come in the way […]

Why Captain Swan reigns as ‘Once Upon a Time’s’ ultimate ship

Oncers, you thought you saw (read) the last of me! Since I’ve had a couple weeks to digest the ending of an era, because it is an era, I have realized Captain Swan was the ultimate ship. Which I already knew, obviously, but the series finale really solidified how well-developed they were. We got everything between […]

Shows we would love to see Lana Parrilla in

Long live the Queen, one might say. As Once Upon a Time has concluded its seven-season run a little over a week ago, we are eager to see where the stars of the show will end up. Most notably, Regina Mills herself — Lana Parrilla. While we don’t have the inside scoop, we do have our own […]

‘Once Upon a Time’ series finale: “Leaving Storybrooke”

Once Upon a Time recap: Season 7, Episode 22, “Leaving Storybrooke,” aired May 18, 2018. Okay, I can explain the delay in this article. I needed time to digest the episode, as this is the last time I will ever recap for this fandom, and that’s simply too much to take in. Plus, after the episode, […]

Au revior, ‘Once Upon a Time’: Why we’ll miss it

*This post will be a bit more on the somber side and probably not as light-hearted as I write because I’m saying goodbye to my favorite show* As I sit here typing this, I am totally in denial that Once Upon a Time is ending in a mere 24 hours or so. Seven seasons. 155 episodes. Several […]

‘Once Upon a Time’ ships: Scenes that made us swoon

Once Upon a Time is one of those shows were there’s a ship for everyone. With that comes many swoon-worthy moments between these canon couples. For some, you may swoon over everything your ship does. For example, Captain Swan could literally just be standing there, and I’d be like “they’re so cute and perfect.” Captain Swan […]

The fairest of ‘Once Upon a Time’ moments

The story may be ending, but that doesn’t mean Once Upon a Time has to be forgotten. Seven seasons, 155 episodes, countless moments we’ll always remember. A show about hope and love, it has given the fandom so much. We see ourselves in these characters; our hearts have broken alongside these characters; we have watched stories play […]

‘Once Upon a Time’ part I finale: “Homecoming”

We are heading into the final hour of Once Upon a Time. I am a mess; this season flew by. Part 1 is just the beginning of defeating the final big bad, but it won’t be easy. It was so fun seeing some of the old villains and heroes in this episode. Nostalgia at its finest. A […]

3 ‘Once Upon a Time’ arcs that we LOVE

We all have our favorite season or half of a season for a show. With Once Upon a Time, we have been lucky to get many arcs and seasons. In fact, it’s hard for me to just pick the top 3 arcs that I enjoyed, but “I love a challenge.” If anyone got that reference, you win. […]

‘Once Upon a Time’ 7×20: “Is This Henry Mills?”

Once Upon a Time recap: Season 7, Episode 20 “Is This Henry Mills?,” aired May 4, 2018. Guys, this episode was WILD and crazy, and I am all kinds of confused. Things are starting to come to a close now that the curse is finally broken and Gothel is dead. However, it wouldn’t be Once Upon a […]

‘Once Upon a Time’ 7×19 recap: “Flower Child”

Once Upon a Time recap: Season 7, Episode 19 “Flower Child,” aired April 27, 2018. Okay, let me preface this by saying this wasn’t my favorite episode ever. Put down the tomatoes, you guys. They can’t all be winners. But it’s not shocking considering this episode was centered around the least likable character to ever exist in […]
