I have an idea for an OUAT fic (with swan queen overtones, of course) but I’m too lazy/uninspired to write it out.
This quote (from here):
What’s a soul mate? Well, it’s like a best friend, but more. It’s the one person in the world that knows you better than anyone else. It’s someone who makes you a better person. Actually, they don’t make you a better person, you do that yourself because they inspire you. A soul mate is someone who you carry with you forever. It’s the one person who knew you and accepted you and believed in you before anyone else did or when no one else would. And no matter what happens, you’ll always love her. Nothing can ever change that.
: appeared on my dash as part of a Faberry post and I can certainly see how it applies (and completely agree with the reasoning laid out in the original post).
But this post isn’t about Faberry, It’s about Once Upon A Time. Now I admit I’m not fully up to date on the whole “True Love” vs “Soul Mate” debate going on in the OUAT fandom. I have posted a few mini-rants in an attempt to define what the difference could be between the two (as, on the surface, they would seem to be nearly identical and in fact, one could — with very few exceptions — make an argument that this is an apt a definition for “True Love” as it is for “Soul Mate”) yet this is the best definition of what a “Soul Mate” could/should be that I’ve come across yet.
