Why do the stores have so many heart-shaped things?

First. What's Valentine's Day? I've seen things posted for it everywhere.
Second. Would people like to go to Disneyland with me on the 21st? I want to meet Disney me.

So I guess, in the face of lost friends and loved ones. In the face of sadness and despair. Just keep moving.
Insanity is stagnation. Insanity is standing in one spot and expecting the environment around you to change. Insanity isn't doing the same thing; it's doing nothing.
But [...] what would I know about madness?
[OOC: So this morning, Regina would find the following left on the first floor of her home, just outside the cellar door. There's no note. But I suppose there doesn't really need to be, does there?

Hence the storm. Anyone want to come with me, I'm going to try and talk her down but I'm not...It's not my forte

No evil or Heaven
[Kirk + Greaves House]
Kirk, did you want to go too? Or possibly anyone else in the apartments who'd like to tag along, I don't mind doing a carpool thing with multiple trips. Oh.. and I think a dinner was discussed concerning use of the Trek food replicator. Sounds quite intriguing and can hardly wait to see how awesome that thing works.
But anyone who may want to zorb, leave your name and I'll pass it on to Alicia Spinnet when I talk to her next. Or could comment to her directly, either option may be workable.

Well that was an amusing load of drivel if I've ever read one.
Now. Who wants to go out for dinner? My treat. Jefferson, we can bring the kids, we just don't tell them there's any reason for it. If you want.
I wish I could understand.
I've tried. I've really tried.
After everything, how can you possibly

Nope. No Evil. Evil's Not Allowed. Kid's Too Cute to Party With Evil
[Filtered Against Henry (and still evil, too, okay??)]
Then on Sunday afternoon, we'll be gathering at our house. Henry has no idea, he thinks it's just a birthday dinner with those of us from Storybrooke, but I'd like any of his Lawrence friends to be there. I know it's St. Paddy's Day but I hope those of you he's closest to will take a few hours from your green beer and come have dinner and cake and some games with him. I think he'd love to see many of you there. I don't have to tell any of you how very special he is.
If, and only if, it's all right with Henry, would you like to spend a few hours with him before his party on Saturday?
Given what you just went through, I'd understand if you didn't want to let go of Grace for a minute. But we'd love to have her there, and I know Henry adores her. You'd be welcome to come along if it would make you feel better.
Also, Disney World. Universal. Sea World. One week. Nope, none of you get a say in the matter, all expenses paid. We deserve a chance to relax after everything that just happened.

if you ever wonder how you're going to win this war.
There is a goodness here, among you all that you need to remember any time someone tries to take it away from you.
We need to remember what happened here, what she did, what we did when threatened. That is how we're going to win and that is why Lucifer will lose.
The magic. Her magic. It impressed you. How she worked.
Don't let it make you feel guilty but don't let it drag you down either. If it ever feels...if he ever feels too close to the surface, remember you have me and remember that I love you more than I knew possible outside of the stories I read.
And remember there is always hope.
You didn't make the deal? Tell me there was no deal

Now some people think this isn’t going to come to a fight. I don’t really believe that. So it stands to reason that if we have to fight her, and even if by some miracle we don’t have to, we should know what she can do. Well, we covered the dragon thing but we also have lots of other ground to cover. I don’t know much about classic fairytales or Disney movies, but I can tell you about the video game. There were two fights with her, one in her human form and one in her dragon form.
TELEKINESIS. Oh god, the telekinesis.
FIRE MAGIC. Obviously, but not breathing it. She turns into a ball of it a couple times during the fights and sort of explodes a couple times to do damage if you’re in close.
DARK MAGIC. I mean dark in the elemental sense, not the moral sense. Void/space/gravity, for those that don’t play as many video games. She seems to be able to use this to mimic some other elemental effects. Or maybe combine it with them.
MINION SUMMONING. This could have just been the game being a game, but thinking about it, she mentioned minions to me back during the first banter I had with her before I knew who she was. So maybe not.
Here’s a video I found of FIGHT ONE. There’s some cutscene stuff at the beginning and end. If you just want to see the fight, you’ll want to skip ahead to about 3:29, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea to watch the bits before it to get an idea of her personality.
FIGHT TWO: THE DRAGONING
TOUGH HIDE, AS IF SHE WERE SOME KIND OF GIANT REPTILE.
THE DESTRUCTIVE CAPABILITY OF A GIANT REPTILE.
VERY BIG CLAWS AND TEETH.
REALLY FUCKING BIG. Sensing a pattern here?
Here’s a video of FIGHT TWO. The fight starts at 2:39, but again, not a bad idea to watch some of the stuff before it. In fact, watching it gave me a couple of ideas…
It’s going to come down to a fight. I know people want to hope it won’t, but it always does. So what can we do to try and prepare? I had some thoughts.
ANTI-FIRE STUFF: In the game, there’s accessories you can equip that protect against fire damage. Can we mimic that in reality? I’m thinking enchanted armor, or clothes, or whatever works best. Magic-types, can this be done? If so, what do you need and how long do you need? This is probably going to be pretty vital, so if you need special stuff or whatever, I’m sure a lot of us would be willing to pitch in on getting it.
SPECIAL WEAPONS: In the movie, the guy uses an enchanted sword. In the game, you’ve got the Keyblade, which is a kind of…it’s best to think of it as a magic sword shaped like a key. I could try and explain it better, but it’s sort of silly and only makes sense in a Disney thing. I don’t know if special/legendary/magic weapons are necessary or not, but it probably wouldn’t hurt. I happen to have one, but it’s all mace-shaped and I’m thinking bludgeoning her to death shouldn’t be plan A unless we have a damn good way to immobilize her and keep her that way. Anybody else have any? And again, magic-types, how feasible would it be to whip up some more?
GETTING HER VULNERABLE: On this post Lois said something about not being able to kill her in human form. Bad news. EDIT: Hal suggested making her transform. That’s part of why I picked the second video. There were shorter ones without the cutscene bits, but that one kind of gave me an idea about the “make her transform” thing. The guy in the thing uses a dark Keyblade (again, don’t ask) to “unlock her heart”, which is…more silly Disney stuff, but it got me thinking. What did that do? Power overload, it seems like. But it also seemed like she wasn’t forced to change, like she just went FUCK IT I AM FULL OF DARK LET’S TAKE OFF THE KID GLOVES. So he “unlocks her heart” and all of a sudden she’s having a powergasm and flipping out like a kid on Christmas. So maybe we could push her into it somehow, dicking with her emotions or making her feel like she’s already won or something. Thoughts?
…Wow, that got longer than I thought it would. Huh. But here you go, folks.
ETA: Okay, so after talking to people I realized we should also have a list of people willing/able to fight a dragon. If anyone has experience in the field of killing dragons, we'd really love to hear from you. I'll add names to this list as I get 'em, so keep them coming.
Hal: Mostly swords, muskets, more modern if needed.
Kevin: Maces, swords, some staff work.
Mal: Guns and swords.
Robin: Sword and bows.
Captain Becker: EMD and other guns.
