Once Upon a Time: Swan Queen — A Celebration in GIFs! We love Once Upon a Time for the magic, the family relationships, and the cool twists on beloved characters, but let's be real — the shipping is important, too. Really, really important. That's why y'all are going wild over our ship bracket. We're celebrating some of the most popular of the many awesome OUAT ships with GIFs, from canon True Love to the relationships that will probably only happen in fans' imagination and creative fanworks. And there's no non-canon ship bigger than Swan Queen (Emma/Regina, for the uninitiated). The writers may not have an intended it, but there’s a compelling narrative to be had between these two gorgeous women — a story of redemption, salvation (Emma is the savior, right?)
Log In Tourism is now the island’s biggest industry, taking over from fishing and aluminum smelting, much as the financial sector did in the years before the crash.

Photo: Flickr The city of Bordeaux and south-west France seems to come top of every ranking so The Local tries to find out just what's so special about the city and the region around it. It seems like you can't open a French newspaper these days without seeing the south-west of France leading some kind of ranking.
