Once upon a time, I fell in love with a TV show. Can you guess which one?
So one day (I honestly don’t remember when) I was bored and decided to try to find something new to watch on Netflix. That thing ended up being Once Upon a Time.
I flew through the first and second season. It was just so good! The characters and stories awoke the child in me while still being aimed at adults. I love it. And then Hook was introduced.
Hooks character is awesome. I love the bad guy trying to be good type character (especially when they are as good looking as Mr. Killian Jones :P) and I also just love seeing different versions of old characters (which is probably why I like the show as a whole). Anyway, he is my favourite character on the show!
I think that, as a writer, a lot can be learned from taking old characters and putting them in a new circumstance. It can help us develop our own characters into round, realistic beings. This is probably why so many writers write fanfic on the side. I’ve never really written fanfic but I do make up a lot of fanfic in my head… I should really start writing fanfic for fun…
I’m now part way through the fourth season (and behind I might add… I really need to catch up!) and I am still loving the show. I love how, each season, new characters are being introduced and being tied into the storyline of the main characters.
If you have not yet seen Once Upon a Time, what is wrong with you? I mean, you should watch it!
