    • Dark One's curse makes people immortal

    • Being a Fairy/Gothel/Seraphina is also a way.

      Being Seraphina isn't a way :P

      Gods, fairies, tree nymphs, dark ones, Neverland, and Dark curse is what I can think of.

      Okay then, being friends with Gothel :p.

      In all seriousness we have no clue why Seraphina doesn’t age so maybe everyone named Seraphina is immortal which is just as speculative as anything else.

      Gothel probably made it so none of the coven members aged so she could continue her 1,000 years search for members.

    • Not-aging ,or rather, not showing it, is not the same as immortality.

      Not-aging simply means a being which does not show their aging process. This includes fairies, Pinocchio, Gothel, Fendrake, Regina, Seraphina, inhabitants of Neverland, victims of the Dark Curse etc.

      Immortality in OUAT, however, means a being which is very hard to kill with only certain weopons. Like the dagger for the Dark Ones, and Olympian Crystal for deities (and probably for also Dark Ones). They also have the ability of unaging.

      I doubt it's hard for magical people to magic themselves to look young, as lots of people used it.

    • There is a difference from looking young and not aging, looking young is basically glamour, something that isn’t too hard.

      Physically stopping yourself from aging is much harder as we’ve only seen a few special cases, and whatever happened to Nook also fits somewhere in this equation, he youngified himself but that probably would have worked if he used Emma’s bloood.

      Nook used Hook's blood, not Emma's.

      Glamour is only an allusion, which does not affect the caster at all, only the world. Biologically, when you age, some of your organs begin to get out of order. Regina is more or less 50 years old by now without the Dark Curse. If she only glamoured herself, Regina wouldn't even run from a street to another like she does xD

      Playing with aging (accelerating or reversing) may be difficult, but I don't think it's very hard to stop at your current age. I also do not see a difference between those I mentioned.

      I’m saying that if Nook took Emma’s bloods it also would have made him young, but he would be Emma.

      That is exactly what I’m saying, glamorizing yourself Young is easy but you don’t get any advantages besides being pretty.

      I do think it was a hard to stop at your current age, IIRC Smee asked Rumple to do that and he couldn’t, that doesn’t mean that at the time of the DC he couldn’t but it does mean it takes a lot of power and experience, beyond the basic DO starter pack. Everyone who has stopped aging on their own has been very powerful (except maybe Fendrake but we don’t know enough about him to make that call), if it was easier more magic users would do it.

    • Blue Fairy seems to have stopped Jiminy Cricket from aging. Was that a separate spell from turning him into a cricket, or did getting turned into a cricket stop him from aging?

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I think she made him as long as he needed to be to protect Geppetto, IIRC she said something of the like when granting the wish.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • How do we know anyone "stopped" their aging? We know it's not hard to be de-aged (Rumple has made the offer a lot, and we've seen it done a few times); maybe Regina takes a daily dose of De-aging Dust.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I mean the reason Regina (And EF people) is so old is because of the curse which stopped everyone aging, though some de-aging dust would explain Seraphina, Fendrake and why Regina/Zelena/Emma/Hook are so young in the FB’s of S7.

    • The Dark Curse places everyone in stasis. That stasis is broken when Emma comes to town. How do we know? Nobody has aged and Ashley remains preganant.

      Blue transformed Jiminy and (key word: and) halted his aging process. As the Dark Curse reverts magical transformations, Jiminy returns 50 to 60 years later the same age. The Dark Curse doesn’t deage people that aged naturally.

      Do fairies age? Yes. Otherwise, the aging powder would have no affect. This could be due to the Dark Curse reverting them to be “human”. How could this be justified? Take Blue out of the equation. We have a human become a fairy and by all accounts lives tens of thousands of years in a realm of accelerated time flow and not age a day. It stands to be the case that fairies might not age, but when “turned human” is when they are susceptible to age.

      Wish Hook’s situation is unique and lacks enough information. However, it stands to be pretty much leaning towards: He was made young physically. What proof is there besides him living? Well, he shows no signs of old age without pain or whatever bumbling mental capacity he had before. Another ten years go by and he appears to be roughly the same. If he’s at least 60s in 7x01 (which is a stretch), he should be 70s by the curse. Could this be abusable? Maybe (as the writers don’t really think things through), but it may not as “how often do you get fresh blood from your younger self?”. The Dark Curse also didn’t revert this. If it was a glamour, it would be gone. Aging spells aren’t always active, but a glamour would have to be.

      I’d argue that stasis is often used in other “non-aging” forms of magic. The Sleeping Curse keeps your body in stasis forever. The Preservation Spell keeps your body as it is when cast. The Dragon Eggshell had something that preventing aging/the effects of aging, whether it was temporary stasis or rejuvenation.

    • As for people using other methods to stay you g: I guess.

      The writers pretty much let any magic user handwave a lot of stuff. Most spells you can handwave or craft in a potion or some ritual but...why? What determines which you do? Nobody knows.

      Merlin does potioncraft and incantation to create a tethering spell. Zelena looks at it and just waves her hand.

      Gideon has a spell to repair Hrunting. He uses one ingredient listed (blood of the smith who forged it). Since Blue has magic and blood apparently is magic, it steals her magic to reforge the sword.

      Have we not seen the fifty thousand locator spells? Wave a hand. Wave a hand plus an object. Potion A, Potion B, ritual A, Ritual B.

      I’d bet that those mages that seem to love beyond their normal lifespan surely have not aged, rather than glamour. Though, one would think they would have more ageless, young witches, but they don’t.

    • So did Zelena just magic herself to stay young? She is older than Regina and was supposedly in Oz for the 28 years of the Dark Curse. Yet she is still as young as she was when she first became the wicked witch

      Oz was frozen in time during the Dark Curse.

      Why was Oz frozen? Cora put her corner of the Enchanted Forest into suspended animation. Arendelle was frozen by Ingrid. We know that the Dark Curse could affect other realms like how Frankenstein was taken to Storybrooke. But Regina had no connection to anyone in Oz, at least none that she knew about. Why would she freeze it?

      It just affected all the realms, Cora protected her corner but the freezing is just a part of the curse.

      To add,

      The time stop affected all realms. Cora simply protected that corner of the land from being taken to Storybrooke.

      That’s what I was trying to say but thanks for saying it better.
