A Rumpelle FanVid/ Some Thoughts on that Ship

Hey all! So, yesterday I about drowned myself in Rumpelle fan-fiction (and, I'm not going to lie, they were mostly PWPs). I stayed up reading them until 2AM, and was hugely inspired. And the other day, my friend was talking about how she heard that song "Call Me Maybe" on the radio and how it irritated her. I was curious so I looked it up and thought "what could I do with this song..." and in all honestly, there wasn't much.
So this video is my way of being ironic.

Alright, so while your brain processes that, I wanted to collect some opinions on the Rumpelle ship. While I was looking up spoilers yesterday, I saw more Rumpelle hate comments than I ever could have imagined. Then on fanpop, two out of seven people said that Rumpelle was their least favorite couple.
Now, I know that Rumpelle is pretty popular on this blog, but I'm just wondering, what do you think of them? Love them to death (like me)? Over the hype? Hate them? Don't care?
I feel like the hate is really kind of a hipster thing. You know the type. 'Oh, everyone is obsessed with this ship so I hate it.' That sort of thing. But I also saw a lot that said things like "they ruined my favorite Disney movie" and "I hate that she's going to be back for the finale."
This stuff really shocked me because Rumpelle is my absolute OTP besides Barney and Robin (HIMYM), and since they don't seem to be getting together anytime soon, I'm shipping Rumpelle 210 percent.
So the point of my insane rambling is: How do you feel about the Rumpelle ship?


  1. They are the best couple in the series, and I really hope he gets her back, although saying that if it means getting rid of rumplestiltskin and making him the man before the powers, then i hope she really does fall out a window.

    I don't know why we have to have a 3 week break, theres been enough interruptions to this series as it is.

  2. I love them! Rumple is such a horrible/lovable character, and I think Belle is perfect for him. I say, Yeah Rumpelle, hope to see more of them!

  3. I find it a very good match and like how although it isn't the usual "Beast" Belle falls in love it still relates him to the "Beast." She even calls him a beast at one point and some of what happens between them is very similar and sometimes the same as what happens between Belle and the Beast in most versions of "The Beauty and the Beast" I find it another one of the show's excellent integration of one fairy tale into an amalgamation of them all.

  4. I Love Belle and Rumpelstiltskin! I am surprised to hear that Lots don't like this duo! I can't wait to see more!

  5. Gah!!! Its so romantic!!! Belle and Rumple make me happy and sad at the same time. Cuz he's sooo old...and too afraid to admit he loves her. GRRR. I like that he is not the traditional Beast. Because HE is Belle's Beast, not Dr. Whale or August. Why do people say that? (Dr Whale is the whale in Pinocchio duh!!!) Plz find Belle, Mr. Gold!!!

  6. Rumpelle, definitely my OTP for life. It is just so perfect. ♥.
    Some quotes from the season finale:
    "Yes I'll protect you."
    "I remember...I love you." "Yes...yes, and I love you too."

    GAAAAH, my heart, it's just so perfect ♥.
    Season finale was amazing, and I'll never forget it.


Go ahead! Tell me what you think!
