April A To Z Challenge - Cross Stitch "T" x 2
Project #1: Once Upon A Time
"T" is for Tinker Bell, aka Tink. Although she is now in Storybrooke, because she came after the curse, she is herself and no Storybrooke name is necessary. Although I'm not actually a huge Tink fan in general (I lean more towards Vidia), I'm glad to see how well they've humanized her in Once, maybe more so than any of the other characters. She's really not at all like the Tink we all know...I always saw her as a spoiled little brat susceptible to temper tantrums when she didn't get her way. But in the Once version, she was punished by the Blue Fairy and got her wings taken away (because she used Pixie Dust to help Regina after she was told not to), and she ends up quite bitter over it. I don't remember it ever being explained how she ended up in Neverland, but she's definitely no friend of Evil Pan (as I like to call him) and her history with Hook is also a bit of a mystery (but it obviously wasn't very good). Now that things have settled a bit in Storybrooke, it's nice to see her fitting in with everyone and I love how Emma has such trouble saying "Tinker Bell". Guess it would be difficult to refer to anyone human by that name. Hopefully we will see more of Tink in the future. I think it's time for her to have a love interest!
Project #2: Veronica Mars
"T" is for Teams Piz vs Logan. There were popular shirts at the time that either read Team Piz or Team Logan (obviously I am Team Logan), the two rivals for Veronica's affections. More on Piz later, but you can still buy these shirts on Etsy (and I have been tempted more than once).
