For those of you who may not have been around back then, Willow and Tara fans got much the same treatment that Emma and Regina fans are getting today. “Stop reading into things that aren’t there.” “Willow is clearly straight.” The WB even issued an official statement that Willow and Tara were ‘just friends’ and that there was no sexual relationship between them. Joss didn’t even acknowledge the subtext for months after Hush aired when Willow and Tara first did a spell together. He admitted that he was using magic as a metaphor for the sexual relationship he couldn’t show onscreen.
Willow and Tara became canon, and considering the shows have shared some writers, isn’t it possible that the parallels between Emma & Regina having their own ‘floating rose’ and ‘moving the soda machine’ magic scenes, which are very visually similar right down to the blocking….isn’t it possible that the writers are going to make Emma & Regina canon also?
