No longer a coward by snoprincess No longer a coward by snoprincess
While viewing listen to this song-> [link]

Belle knew something was wrong, everything had suddenly turned cold and she could sense that danger was upon their castle. Where was Rumpel? She was unable to see him anywhere. She searched frantically for him over the castle grounds. She ran through the rose garden, looking in every corner. Then Belle found him, alone, against the ground. But it was too late.

And when it mattered most Rumpelstiltskin proved himself not to be a coward, he had given his life for Belle’s.




You guys can fill in the dots and draw your own conclusions :D

* I have a a feeling that there is some dramatic turn coming for Rumbelle. Over the two series the point is continually made that Rumpelstiltskin is a coward, so it seems only fitting that the writers will somehow use this to create some climatic plot line.

Lovely, lovely art, but I sincerely hope the writers understand how much we love Rumble, and decide keep him in the show. Though I did hear that a main character will be dying this season... I'm kinda hoping Charming doesn't recover from that bow and arrow hit, and Rumple is spared. :| (am I awful?) (...yes...)

Oh no, I'm not the only one! (MANY SPOILERS ALERT) I'm affraid I believe so too. I'm almost sure that Rumple is going to die, when he and Belfire are reunited once more, and Belfire then gets to see that his father is not a coward but an honest and courageous man (which he is!! ^.^), he will probably die. I am HOPING that they will make him come back to live or something, even if it's in another "world". I just want a happy Rumbelle ending, pleaaaaseeeee!!! ;__;

I do not think I will ever be ready for this possibility of Rumpel dying in order of ridding the Dark One. Cannot think of a possibility of his life being spared and ridding the curse but if the writers can find a way and still having a life with Belle afterwards they great :D

an interesting point could be made that, Rumplestiltskin's greatest fault is not his cowardice but his habit of opening up to the vulnerability that comes from loving people too much. 99% of the time, its backfired on him either because he was terrified or desperate. Whenever he's made his decisions, it been in the discourse of love eg finding the Dark One to save Bae, becoming enraged with Zuso and taking his place was never the plan though, and not believing that Belle could actually love him despite his adoration for her shows just how tortured a man he is.

It's simple to brand him a coward, however I'm more inclined to think of him as a man whose been hurt so many times it's become too painful to let love in anymore, Belle's slowly breaking through that and...

PLEASE DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN, IT WILL KILL MY FAVOURITE SHIP EVER!

I have thought similarly! I think there will be another chance for Rumpelstiltskin to either confirm his cowardice or (dare I say it!) redeem himself. This picture is beautiful, both in the emotion and in the artwork.

Oh my goodness! I certainly hope he doesn't die, but if he does, this is the only way I would allow him to go. *diehard Dearie* Also, if Rumpel died, who would the new Dark One be?

Melstrife Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012
NOO!!!!! Rumpelstiltskin!!!!! :tears: Belle quickly revive him with True Love's Kiss! There is a major theory that Rumpel might sacrifice himself to save Belle, Bae, and others at the end of the series. Then Belle will kiss him and revive him then happily ever after! As long as Rumpel and Belle are happy together I'm good! And would be nice if Bae is with them or near and they are a happy family!

That is the only way I would allow him to depart this world in peace, and even then I would be shouting, "You can't die!!!! You have to live Happily Ever After; after all your suffering, you totally deserve it!"

:iconmelstrife:
Melstrife Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012
I don't want him to depart from life period. He deserves a happy ending with Belle and forgiveness from Bae (it whatever way that comes) so he can live his life as a man with his family!

But immortality... eventually one gets tired of living. I'm surprised that he's lasted this long as it is considering all the loss he's gone through. I wouldn't be surprised if he's tried to kill himself, multiple times, before coming to grips that the dagger is the only way to kill him. Speaking of which, if Rumpel dies, who will be the new Dark One? I hope it's not Regina or Cora. That would be murder!

Melstrife Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2012
I think currently Rumpel has been driven to get his son back for so long, that is the reason for him to live as long as he has. I know when it comes to Belle he found another reason to live as well. But the theory is, that Rumpel will stab himself with the dagger leaving no one next in line for the Dark One power. Belle does True Love's Kiss and he comes back to life and lives his life out happy with Belle and Bae (if he is around, which many of us hope.)

Hmm... your theory could actually be legit... if it weren't for one thing. Rumpel has said, on two marked occasions in the series "Magic can do much, but not that." THAT being "bring the dead back to life", so it makes me a little skeptical about True Love's Kiss in that respect.

Melstrife Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012
It's true that "magic can do much but not bring people back from the dead." But we have hopes. The theory came from another and many of us (Rumbelle fans) like it. We don't want Rumpel to die and not get a happy ending. He deserves one. But what happens is what happens and we will find out as the series goes on.

Yeh I want a happy ending for them too. Though I think Bae is Peter pan. I reckon this season will end with the reveal of Neverland and Bae and it will keep us in suspense for season 3 :)
