Frankenstein by capefoxalix Frankenstein by capefoxalix
Doctor Whale AKA Frankenstein from Once Upon A Time. I tried to do it monchromatic , sort of like in the series where his world looks kind of black and white , but it didn't work out too well , so I changed it to a sepia sort of colouring . Eh. Oh well . I really like the idea of Frankenstein in OuaT , even though people argue that he isn't a Fairytale character per se.

What's taking that monster of his so long to make an appearance, anyways? I'm afraid they just pulled that reveal as a Halloween stunt.

I guess they planned on Gerhardt being the monster and since Regina didn't pull him into Storybrooke with the curse , chances are we won't be seeing as much of him as we'd like to .

Two things with that...

1. What was wrong with Adam, the monster from the book/movies/TV movie/any other adaptation

2. Why bring up Frankensteing if you're not gonna use the Monster?

I have no idea , they probably felt like putting a 'twist' on the old stories , like they did with Red and the wolf .

A twist that doesn't go anywhere is a pointless twist, however.

I really wish we see the following characters in the Land Without Color:

-Count Dracula

-Abraham Van Helsing

-Lord Ruthven

-Carmilla Karnstein

-Doctor Henry Jekyll/Mr. Edward Hyde

-Doctor Moreau

-Doctor Griffin (aka the Invisible Man)

-The Phantom of the Opera

-The Headless Horseman

-zombies

-Cthuluh

-Doctor Herbert West (hopefully Disney can get Jeffrey Combs to reprise his role here)

-The Man Who Laughs

-The white worm

-The Thing (as in:

that Thing)

He may not be a fairytale character but he is one of the most iconic characters in fiction. I heard about him being in Once Upon A Time and went to the official site just to watch that episode.

He is definitely one of the more iconic fictional characters . I'm quite happy to see him in OuaT , if they can get in Frankenstein , who knows which other awesome characters they can include ? :D

Yeah I read that. And I read that ep 12 will have both those actors so I bet that ep will be about the Frankensteins.

Also, do you think he's from "Science Fiction Land," and there are aliens and time travelers running around outside his lab? Or, because it's in black-and-white, is it "Old-fashioned Science Fiction Land?" Or does each book get its own world, since all the fairy tale characters came from that one book Henry had? In any case, it's exciting to see what they're going to do with all of these possibilities!

I call it "Gothic Horror Land" since Shelley's novel is considered gothic horror and a friend of hers actually came up with a vampire story around the same time that started the whole gothic romantic vampire thing...so my theory is that magic exists in his land (because it would have to for the hat to work) but it doesn't exist in the same capacity as Fairytale Land. Like, perhaps Victor lives in a world that also has vampires and werewolves and other things skulking around, but he simply chooses to pursue science.

(I think about this stuff way too much.)

ANYWAY, nice work. :)

Ooooooo, I like that theory, it would explain why Victor had such disdain for magic! And I always say that if you aren't over analyzing your fiction to the point of obsession, you're doing it wrong.

Thanks so much ! Hmmm I think his land could be one where anything that doesn't actually have magic , but is a product of science could exist in. Maybe even Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde , who knows? It would be cool to see more interesting characters introduced though!

I really like this piece. Also, I think the reason he was from a different world is it's more about storybook characters, not fairytale characters. Technically, Hook was a character from a play, so . . .

Thank you ! I agree , I think OuaT is about stories of all sorts not just fairytales so it will be really interesting to see which stories they bring into the show .

I have a feeling they will include characters from the Wizard of Oz at some point.
