OTP: one true pairing. Canon/not canon. Shipping…Spend time around any fandom and you’ll find a ship or two that is questioned: Which character is best for the lead? Where is the great love story in this show? That character is totally wrong for her/him. Etc. Watch any series; and chances are, you’ll find some sort of love triangle or ship war happening.
Once Upon a Time is no stranger to this. With such a large cast, multiple ships have formed. Some overlap; some are known as a don’t-touch-this-its-perfect ship, like Snow White and Prince Charming.
Snow and David had it easy. They were each other’s true love; and, as everyone seemed to agree, that was not something debatable. For other characters, it’s not nearly as easy.
Emma Swan is one such character. She’s seen her fair share of love interests throughout the series. Emma has interacted with almost everyone on the show, and some chemistry that might not have been written into Once Upon a Time has been felt by fans. By the end of the series, The Powers That Be made it clear that Emma was to end up with Captain Hook. This left half of the fans ecstatic…and the other half vomiting.
Captain Swan has been fought over for years. Our own staff is split on whether this relationship was the best for Emma or not! So, without further ado, let’s discuss.
