Once Upon a Time: Fucked Up Family Tree

I was watching Once Upon a Time with Lil' Lilith the other day and we realized how complicated all of the relationships are between the different worlds. I mean, Emma Swan is the same age as her parents. Her son's adoptive mother (Regina) is also her step-grandmother and her son's father is the son of Rumpelstiltskin, who kinda had a thing with Regina's mom!

Don't even get us started on trying to figure out the real ages of all the characters. That would be near impossible, seeing as the timeline is all kinds of confusing. Emma is the same age as her parents, because time didn't move in Storybrooke... but yet somehow Henry aged 10 years while living there. Neal and Emma appear to be about the same age, even though based on Rumplestiltskin's timeline, he should be older than Regina, who was married to Emma's grandfather. And then August got to hit the do-over switch and go back to being a child again. The whole thing is super hard to understand. and it's a lot to remember...

So we made a handy little family tree/six degrees of separation for all the familial bonds and relationships, that you can use as a guide next time you're watching.

I have to say your OUAT family to be the best and useful to help explain to people who don't watch yet. I was wondering if you ever plan to updated your family tree because more madness was add on to the show

Haha! Thanks mabelis... We are putting this website to rest, but I will probably be updating the family tree (and adding other fun OUAT posts) on my new personal site abbyrosedalto.com :)
