HookRiel Meme ♥
(Hookriel Appreciation Week)
1. When did you first start shipping Hookriel and why do you ship them?
I started shipping them around July, 2013. I finished OUaT’s second season and I was so in love with Hook that I started searching images and pics about him and then… I discovered HookRiel. It was love at first sight, I mean, come on! A pirate and a mermaid. They were so perfect to me! ♥
I ship them because I think a couple like this one can really change all stereotypes on the show, and because they are just made for each other to my eyes. Plus, they are both “sea creatures”, so when I look at them I can smell sea, waves and wind, and so much love…!
I also made a page about them!! —> https://www.facebook.com/HookRiel
2. If you were in the fandom before JoAnna was cast, who was your ideal Ariel?
Holland Roden, of course. She is the perfect Ariel to me. Since when I saw first graphics about her and Hook, I was in love.
But I like JoAnna anyway!
3. Tell us what your headcanons for Hookriel are.
To me, it all start in a day on a town near the sea. Hook is just became a pirate, he is at a port and he see a strange figure in the sea, so he walk up to the water and then he see a mermaid.
"Hi.", Ariel smiles. "Hi?". Hook seems surprised and curious at the same time. They start talk, and they really feel good. They meet for some days at the port, until he has to go away for his sea adventures.
They met sometimes offshore: Hook on his ship and Ariel rising from the sea, but for some reasons they can’t be together, and they broke everything.
Ariel meets Eric, Hook meets Milah. They have their love-stories, and both have a bad end. Ariel lose her voice, Hook lose his hand.
Then, one day… They met each other again at Storybrooke.
"Your voice…", Hook seems shocked.
"Your hand…", Ariel’s eyes seem to say.
4. Got any favorite fanfics? They can be from before or after Ariel was officially cast.
Truth is: I didn’t read fanfics about them. I wanna start writing one by myself and I didn’t want to switch my thoughts or to be inspired by others.
5. Got any favorite fanvideos or other forms of fanart? They can be from before or after Ariel was officially cast.
I love all videos about HookRiel, they’re all so perfect to me! Even graphics are so beautiful! Particularly, I love the ones where there are quotes about the ocean or angst pics.
6. What song reminds you most of Hookriel?
I am so disappointed that nobody has done a video with “Hymn for The Missing” by RED yet. If I were good enough, I’d have already made one.
I think it’s the perfect song for HookRiel.

7. Tell us your favorite AU Hookriel setting.
If I have to say something different from my headcanon, I’d say that Hook and Ariel meet each other at Storybrooke in second season, but they don’t remember anything about their past on Neverland. Where, of course, they had a love-story after Milah and Hook.
Ariel works at the port where Hook, a sailor, has his ship. They start to go out together, they feel good, until Rumple decides to get his revenge for Milah.
So he restores Hook’s memory about their past lives, but he captures Ariel and take her memory one more time, and Hook has to find a way to help her to remember everything (their love-stories both on Neverland and Storybrooke).
Since I’ve never saw a FB page about this couple, I’ve made one by myself.
