A bit confused about what you’re saying in this ask anon? Could you clarify a bit?
As far as I feel SQ = Emma/Regina. Are u referencing ‘being an SQer’ as more of a generalize fannish cultural field than an actual ship?
I’ve sort of reached a point where relating to the show itself, I can’t be only an Emma or only a Regina fan, at any given moment — both characters have incredible important arcs/dynamics that I think are essential together to the foundation of the show & everything that makes it possible.
On a generalized level I adore both of them—and on a relationship level the potential between the two of them is the only thing i do adore (as a gut-wrenchingly engaging, meaty theme that is—orig Snowing was great but their story ended in S1, and it was still of course expected and predictable though told well). I like exploring all of their other relationships (mostly so Graham, and more than that, all the non-canonically romantic characters), but find that interesting in the first place only with/bc of the environmental filter of SQ over it, under it, around it, on top of it…
That said — BOTH characters do things and act certain ways sometimes that really REALLY pisses me off (especially in this past season with Emma, and i in no way did not essentially see Regina as the villain in S1 even though i loved her & her ridiculous entrance music to death) - And when that happens I immediately fall back on & can attack the faults/wayward or mischaracterized attitude of said character thru the other of the pair — Thats actually one of the things that makes SQ so compelling for me (aside from all the obvious) — its like a little mini-nuclear reactor of the conflict and fusion of the entire structure/thesis/core of the show in itself … embodied by women who are excessively sexy on many kinds of both physical & non-physical levels.
SQ is incredibly archetypal (and spot-on archetypal) and I’m not the type of person that could ever emotionally let go of that in the grand scheme of things just to reoriented & latch onto a main character’s fleeting happiness (um…unless that character is Bo. lol
jk). I actually don’t particularly LIKE my characters happy—unless it involves food or creature comforts or sex or fluff or is the end of the story— its not really their job to be happy imo — It’s their job to show us how to get shit done (or how not to).

Does anyone else want to say it’s not about race?

This is why, white people
this makes me want to throw up. (i consider myself an anthropologist, & its pretty hard to get me ashamed of humanity, but right now i am ashamed of humanity.)

Ah, that seriously seems like it would be so much…

Pursue and report back to me. :)
I’m actually on the verge of diving into the acting realm as a student right now (it blows my mind) - I can send you reading material recs - We can have an acting intensive book club! —From a production stand point im actually REALLLLY interested in exploring ways to make ppl w 0 acting experience comfortable acting. Happy to field convos abt any of this stuff.
oh my god, stop it!
Ah! Lip scar and everything?? Come be my Evil Queen—in the OUAT Satire Serial i mean :) Have you ever acted at all?
I just wanna like, be married to someone I adore so we make pancakes, and children, and chocolate, and threesomes often.
So heres a thing, that really surprised me, that I need to say in light of fandom solidarity— The other day I was writing a scene in an SQ fic where Regina was attacking Hook’s character/integrity in general and as someone that should be influencing her son, and Emma was sitting there silently starting to take it more and more personally because of the ways she does in fact relate to Hook (whether she likes them or not) — and, despite everything— beyond the superficial and problematic elements of Hook, I had a minor revelation, and feel like I now understand CSer’s a hell of a lot better.
