Little did he know…
Here, have a gif set of Killian pulling out Emma’s chair for her on their date. That actually happened. The date between Emma and Killian. The Captain Swan date. You know, the one that actually happened. Yeah. It happened.
oKAY BUT CAN I JUST POINT SOMETHING OUT IN THIS SCENE WHERE KILLIAN DROPS EMMA OFF?
as a fellow film student here (hi there), I’m always told by my teacher that during the shooting of my practicals/short films, a scene should be properly lit to show an actor’s face unless the lack of light is purposeful to the film/plot and deliberate. (make sure you remember this. it’s important for the entire meta)
When Emma and Killian are together in a shot, they’re properly lit and you can see their faces clearly.
When they kiss, the lighting is extremely bright and manages to capture the entirety of both their faces.
I don’t know about you but I’m pretty sure that this reflects their lives when they’re with each other. Emma is Killian’s light just as much as Killian is Emma’s. Together they share light-hearted moments worth shining a light upon as opposed to all the dark times in their lives.
THAT is what I think the intention of the lighting is in this part of the scene.
Now let’s fast forward to after Emma enters the apartment and closes the door…
I never ignore the visuals of the mise en scène (everything that appears in front of the camera) in a shot. So what’s so special about this moment?
^^ This is when Emma closes the door and is no longer in the presence of Killian. Not only do we see the light on Killian’s face disappearing, we also see that Killian is standing more towards the right side of the mise en scène/shot. This somehow gives an illusion that there’s something missing in the shot and as it is missing, it’s somewhat sad. The audience sees that Emma is what’s missing since she was previously standing to the left of the frame. As Emma is missing, so is the light that was previously there. Or in other words, Killian’s light.
(I shall rewind back to when I said that I’ve been told lighting, or lack of lighting, is often used deliberately)
Killian’s face turning dark also reflects his past life as a pirate and what his life was like before Emma. Past!Killian didn’t have love (not after when Liam and Milah died) nor did he have light in his life.
What I’m trying to say is: this use of cinematography further addresses and reflects how much Emma means to Killian.
With Emma, his life has moments worth shining a light on.
The lighting also shows how much Killian means to Emma when they’re both under bright lighting. i’M SORRY I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT ANYMORE I’M JUST A BUNDLE OF EMOTION LYING ON THE FLOOR LEAVE ME BE
oh and i’m sorry this was rUDE
yes but how will this help me when this idiot continues with the lies until there isn’t a good explanation for what he’s done that Emma can believe and they both get broken hearts. Just tell her, she’ll not lose faith in you!
Dirigible plums, Butterbeer caps and baby Crumple-Horned Snorkack !
Now i’m trying to draw Harry ! x3
This is a sort of a “Hogward years : resting time” collection ^^”
In which case, you fail by default.

Season 9 Promo Outtakes
Ugh..i just…this is going to end right back with Emma raising up her walls back because she won’t be able.to trust Killian because he’s not going to tell her now when it’s easier but let her find out later when he’ll be in it too deep to jave an excuse. Why do I put mysel through this. One season, just one bloody season I wanted to rest at ease about Killian.
Love Robert Carlyle as Rumplestilskin; just the right touch of crazy.
