The Best of All Worlds
By Teresa Martin @Teresa__Martin
My theory has its origins in a certain spoiler picture that just . . . rang . . . off, and not only because there was no context. It was out of character, unlikely, random . . . .
Alien. Out of this world.
I think so, and therefore believe said spoiler is merely one of many like it. We are going to see in 4b plots of our characters that are not from our town. Just as we’ve seen Fictional Victorian England, we will see Fictional Storybrooke.
Straight out of a story . . . book.
One that will be written inadvertently by Team Operation Mongoose as they peruse through the library introduced in 4x11. Books full of empty pages just waiting to be written upon.
So potentially a fictional Storybrooke will be written into existence wherein each character has a different story than the one we’ve known from past seasons. Perhaps these characters will even through some accident of magic clash with True Storybrooke.
This would serve as an explanation for pictures of Rumple and the Queens of Darkness in Storybrooke. They were able to get in because they are in a different version of the town that does not have a residual curse from Ingrid. It will be here that the villains attempt to bring about their Happy Endings. They may even travel between several Fictional Worlds until they fulfil their quest.
The Best World for them.
If this is the case, then the mission of the heroes will be not only to find The Author, but to ensure that the correct characters end up in the correct world.
So can we expect to see even more outlandish situations amongst our favorite characters?
I hope so!
The possibilities are endless.
As endless as the stories in any book.
