Possible Spoilers Ahead!

 

Many years ago I spent my spare time obsessing over my favorite computer game 'Ultima'. I was fully immersed in the rich world of Britannia and the adventures within. In the world of Ultima, all the signs, magic potions and hidden clues were written in runes. I learned to read those runes to make my way through the game.

The Snow Queen - A Fan Theory by Zach Van Norman

Posted by Once Upon A Fan on October 20, 2014 at 4:55 AM Comments comments (6)



The third episode of ABC's Once Upon A Time, titled "Rocky Road," introduced us to Elizabeth Mitchell's character the Snow Queen. While everyone expected her to interact with Elsa in both the past and present, what few were expecting was a history with the Storybrooke Savior, Emma Swan. Nothing more has been revealed of their past thus far, so we have...

A Fan Theory by Anthony Catalanotti

 

Just when we think we have figured out every Storybrooke character’s enchanted identity, we are – quite literally – swept away by a tornado of verdigris and land right back into the shoes (dare I say, Ruby Slippers?) that we have worn throughout the entire series. Which of our beloved heroes has been given a third, handcrafted, and temporary identity by Her Wickedness in green? Our Cowardly L...

The Mission of Misery: Zelena's Vengeance

A Fan Theory by Becky Stephens


The most recent episode of Once Upon A Time delighted me with some hints of a new love affair, a ruse to catch a thief, the heartache of a mother's love, and undercurrents of a wicked plot that has been centuries in the making.

 

Is Zelena truly who she claims to be? I believe she IS Regina's half-sister, but I do not think that Rumplestiltskin is her biological father. I submit that Zelena is th...

Zelena's Revenge: A Fan Theory by Brooke Summerlin

Posted by Once Upon A Fan on March 16, 2014 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (4)



Poor Henry—the kid just can’t catch a break. Once again all faithful Oncers should be concerned for Henry’s safety. Pan may be out of the picture for now, but there’s a new villain on Once Upon a Time, and she has it out for the truest believer. In fact, I think she’s already made at least one attempt on Henry’s life.

A Fan Theory - By Samantha Holbert

 

Could the Wicked Witch of the West be the child of Young Cora and soon-to-be-King Leopold?


We know from various spoilers that Leo did not want an arranged marriage. My theory is that he met The Miller’s Daughter and perhaps fell in love with her. But C...

The New Curse

A Fan Theory by Peter Pizzola

 

I have a new theory about what the effects of the new curse will be in "Going Home" and how it will impact the rest of the season. What if this curse is more personal in nature, allowing each person to revisit a pivotal moment in their lives, and see how things would have gone if they had made another decision?


I base this theory off of some clues from the

The Resurrection of Cora Mills

A Fan Theory by Peter M Pizzola



 

It can't be denied that Cora Mills was one of the most threatening and imposing villains that OUAT has ever created - an eminent sorceress whose desire for revenge and power even gave the Dark One pause. Her demise last season at the end of "The Miller's Daughter" seemed to put an abrupt ...

Rumple Theory by Trisha Ducote

After seeing the preview clip of Rumple, the Lost Boy, and the little doll that made Rumple cry, my mind ran wild with questions. First, whose doll is it? I am guessing Rumples’. It’s a simple doll but the jacket it is wearing has me thinking. It’s a jacket with piping, not a cloak, or cape. Nothing about the little blue jacket says to me it...

The Magic Of Neverland

A Fan Theory by Samantha Lee - @SamsJag


In the Season 3 promo Mr. Gold says, "Neverland is a place where imagination runs wild." I believe this is a clue to the nature of magic in Neverland. I think that magic in Neverland is powered by imagination and imagination is strengthened by belief. Perhaps this is why Neverland is controlled by children; they still own their ability to believe i...

Rumplestiltskin: A Victorian Lost Boy?

A Fan Theory by Teresa Martin


A Season Three clip shown at D23 hinted strongly that Rumplestiltskin had been one of the Lost Boys. Also recently it was confirmed that the Victorian England of Alice in OUAT In Wonderland is the fictional one of Oliver Twist and David Copperfield. Why so specific? Why not just a fictional, parallel universe?


I believe that the answer is right before us. This Victorian ...

The Origins of Henry's Storybook

A Fan Theory by @PhoenixHeart815


My latest theory involves Henry's fairy tale book which he received from Mary Margaret before meeting Emma. I predict that Henry’s book originated in Neverland.


During the Once Upon A Time panel at SDCC, Eddy Kitsis said, "[Neverland] is the place where imagination comes from. So it is a place where anything can happen."


This got me thinking because it sounded very fa...

By the end of Season Two the audience of Once Upon a Time had discovered that Storybrooke’s very own Boris and Natasha, Greg and Tamara, not only have ties to a mysterious organization known as the Home Office, but to Neverland as well. Yet who else, apart from the two vil...

A Fan Theory by Hope Mullinax


Season two of Once Upon A Time introduced us to a new enemy. The Home Office is just as mysterious as its players Greg and Tamara. We don’t really know their intentions past purging our world of magic. Through the use of technology, we see that they can be quite deadly by taking out characters such as the Dragon and August. But what if they have struck before? We don’t know how long they’ve been aro...

A Fan Theory by Raissa Devereux




Like many Once Upon A Time fans, I was suspicious of the Blue Fairy from the start, but I wasn’t able to articulate why until I realized that she didn’t champion true love or True Love’s Kiss. She convinced Nova and Dreamy to part instead of exploring true love, beca...
