  • Bear with me. The first few paragraphs are exposition and then I'll explain what could happen if the show did the Morrígan.

    The Morrígan is a goddess from Irish mythology. She's very unique in the sense that she is usually represented as three identical sisters. She's also been linked by many Arthurian scholars to Morgan Le Fay (or Morgana La Fay... whatever you wanna call her lol). She's a goddess of war and death, associated with cows, crows and dogs. You can pretty much learn all you need to about her powers by watching this music video.

    Another entity represented as a trio of sisters is... Well, the Fates of Greek Mythology. You can see what Disney's interpretation of the Fates looks like here. Contrary to popular belief, the Fates did not override free will. They just killed you when your time was up.

    Now Brave and Frozen in the main show and Star Wars in Wonderland have shown that no Disney property is off-limits. Unfortunately. And we all know three lovely sistahs that Disney fans love oh, so much.

    With the Morrígan being a link to Arthurian legend and Camelot, as well as the Fates being a link to Greek Mythology, it would be pretty awesome if the Morrígan was introduced into the show as an alternate name for the Fates, who they themselves would be introduced as individuals, sharing the names of the Sanderson Sisters.

    So maybe the Fates could be introduced as the all-powerful Morrígan, a coven of primordial sister witches as old as the first story who control fate and destiny as one entity, while presiding over their own domain. Each one could preside over an abstract concept that would line up with the three magical laws: Sarah, the goddess of love. Mary, the goddess of time. And Winifred, goddess of Death. With Hades serving as the King of the Underworld instead of the God of Death (which I don't believe he technically is in myth, either. He's the God of the Underworld, not of Death itself.)

    • I was just looking that up for some novel writing and stuff. Coinkedink?!

      I would ignore the Hocus Pocus movie because Books, books, it's about books! But the triple goddess being the fates would be cool, but I'm sure Once will go simplistic and do the Fates/ Norns. That's it. I would like the Morrigan, but I can't see them not thinking simple. Just three hooded witch ladies that speak in riddles and stuff. Probably raised Rumple, if they had the other sister.

      I think the door opened for anything the second Once did Brave, Wonderland mentioned the Sarlacc as a creature native to there and Red's Untold Tale adapted the Disney version of Amos Slade. :P So never say never to Hocus Pocus, especially with the sequel coming soon.

      But yeah, doing the Sanderson Sisters might be one step too far. I have so many ideas for Once and I think most of them would be so insanely good, but I doubt any of them will ever be done.

      I do hope they connect the Morrígan to Arthur and make them into the Fates, at least.

      They are going to competely ignore that, but let me get rid of the realism. The Morrigan would be cool, but they tend to go popular over lesser known. (And everything Once does is in book form).

    • The Fates could also be the Weird Sisters from Macbeth, introducing Shakespeare stories like Macbeth, Hamlet, and Romeo & Juliet to OUAT.

      The idea to have The Fates be The Morrigan, who is also Morgan le Fey, is a bit busy, but could work. Also making them the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus is going way to far though. I would see them being the witches from Macbeth or the witches from Chronicals of Prydain, before the witches from Hocus Pocus. And even then, it gets a bit busy, like I said. Also, a few notes on some of the other stuff. The Sarlac mention in Wonderland was more of a shout out to Star Wars than anything. Basically, it is no different than Emma calling herself Princess Leia. The chance of us actually seeing Star Wars stuff on this show is 0.0000001%. As for Hades, you are correct, he is not God of Death, that is Thanatos. Hades is Lord of the Underworld and God of Wealth.
