Day Five: Growth; how far they’ve come
This gifset doesn’t do any sort of justice to the incredible growth this relationship has gone through over the past 3 years. In my opinion, Regina and Henry have the best developed, most earned, and truly beautiful relationships on the show because it’s been a relationship that has been worked and fought for from the very beginning. Whether the obstacle was personal, magical, themselves or the big bad in town, they found a way through it and only came out stronger for it. But their growth wasn’t only about what they had together, it’s been about their characters. How they have grown as individuals because of and for each other, while growing all the better together because of it.
It’s never been easy and regardless of whether we’re going through the 3 years we’ve seen between them from the start of the show, or the 10 years of unseen history they had together in their past, it’s been a long journey. But it’s been one I’ve been glad to have for them because one of my favorite things about this dynamic is the time spent making sure it was done right. It was built up slowly, realistically and organically while still leaving so much for us to see between them. They’ve grown a lot and I can’t wait to see them continue to do so.

like imagine if you’d never seen a dog and you saw a saint bernard and you were like, what’s that and then someone was like, thats a dog. and then you saw a chihuahua and you were like ok whats that and they were like, that’s a dog. wouldn’t you feel lied to? wouldn’t you sense that something was amiss
Day One: Favorite Mommy/Son moment(s)
Those little moments that you’d expect to see a mother and son have. Spending time together, telling each other stories, her tucking him in to bed at night. Small things that they’ve probably done a million times before but are probably that much more special and cherished now after their rift and separation.

Day One: Favorite Regina!Mommy/Henry!Son moment(s)
Out of all the wonderful Regina & Henry moments, I’ve chosen these two for this challenge because they give us insight into something we’ve seen very little of on the show: a touch of domesticity, a peek into Regina and Henry’s life and relationship sans drama. This is usually the sphere of headcanons. But in these scenes, we’re finally allowed a look.
In 3x09, Regina knows that look because how many times has she seen it throughout the years? How many times has she tucked in her growing Little Prince or sat by his bed because he hasn’t been feeling well? She blames pizza and computer games, but she’s not at all reprimanding here; she cracks an inside joke that’s theirs alone. It makes you wonder how many pizzas the Mills mansion has seen and how many times Regina has rolled her eyes before giving in to Henry’s clamouring for one for dinner because, well, she has to give that one to him secretly (or so she thinks): pizza is good.
In 3x19, pizza makes a return as a recurring joke. What Regina asks for and Henry is only too happy to share are small, everyday things, down to the last detail. Because apart from that one year, they’ve always shared those moments. The mood of this scene is one of the most heartwarming ever, starting from their faces and the way they keep holding on to each other to the tone of their conversation. Henry’s excitement at the retelling and the absolute bliss on Regina’s face (she has only just gotten her son back after a year by means of a shared TLK!) intensify when he proudly breaks his math success story to her. You can almost see, from this tiny moment, all those times Regina and Henry sat over his math homework together, and this shared struggle for improvement is what makes Henry so excited to share (look at the little bouncing thing he does!), and Regina so proud and happy to hear (and me - us? - so emotional to watch).
Today, I bought this book (for my sister, lets clarify that now ‘cause the only way I’m going anywhere near sperm is if I fall into a vat of it):
