With Once Upon a Time on hiatus for what feels like the next ten years, how are we supposed to fill our time? Pouring over spoilers and speculating about what's next isn't quite enough. Good thing there are so many wonderful 'ships to obsess over constantly!
To help make the hiatus a little less painful, we're going to celebrate the best moments of important OUAT relationships — in GIFs! Because who doesn't love a good GIF (or twenty)?
To kick things off, let's take a walk down memory lane with Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) and Belle (Emilie de Ravin). Rumbelle is one of our very favorite OUAT 'ships, and they’ll be featured heavily in the first episode back, Season 2, Episode 19: “Lacey," so it seems like the perfect place to start.
Without further ado:
Rumbelle's Best Moments — in GIFs!
It All Started With a Cup
He Made Her Laugh
She Didn't Think He Was a Monster
She Came Back to Him
Their First Kiss...
... Led to Heartbreak, Because He Doesn't Quite Believe He Can Be Loved
But She Didn't Give Up on Him
And He Never Forgot Her
In Either World
Our Hearts Exploded When He Saw She Was Alive
And Then Again When She Remembered
They Kissed, and All Was Right In the World
He Messed Up Again (Of Course), but She (Adorably) Gave Him Another Chance
They Save Each Other
And, of Course, the Phone Call
Just Look at the Way He Looks at Her
Because She Never Gives Up on Him
And That's Why We'll Never Give Up on Them
