Ignore me, I just need to put this somewhere because plotbunnies!

SERIOUS MATTERS TO DISCUSS: do you think Rumbelle's having hot sex in the show or are they still ~~~pure~~~


You know, I always liked to think they were, but I wasn’t sold on the idea they were knocking boots until The New Neverland. They just didn’t have a whole lot of time to get to that point in their relationship. I know people used the fact that they were obviously sleeping in the same bed in “The Crocodile” as proof, but I figure that after 30 years in solitary, Belle probably just didn’t want to sleep alone. I can also see Rumple being really hesitant about doing anything to “hurt” Belle so I don’t think they would have immediately jumped into bed together. After “The Crocodile” they broke up and then were taking things slow. They were getting back to a solid relationship but then “The Outsider” happened and Belle was memory wiped, then Lacey. I am in the camp that Rumple and Lacey didn’t sleep together, just because I don’t think Rumple would have felt comfortable with that, especially if Belle were still a virgin. (Although I fully embrace Golden Lace fics that take place during that time cause holy hell are they hot!). Once Belle got her memory back, Rumple was off to Neverland. So they really didn’t have much time for getting down.

Then came The New Neverland. There was implied Rumbelle reunion sexiness up the wazoo in that episode. Belle putting Rumple’s clothes on him (after I assume helping to take them off). Their little flirty exchange “perfect” “thank you” “you’re welcome”. Then the kissing cutting away to dwarves toasting. The insanely good mood Rumple was in the next day when he gave Charming the dreamshade cure. All signs point to Rumbelle sex!

Did they do it before then? I don’t know. It’s possible. But as of New Neverland, I think Rumbelle definitely took their relationship to the next level. Because this is a family show on ABC, I think our only definitive answer to that question will be if they get married or have a baby (or both).

Yep…..I never thought they slept together in the Crocodile because if they had, why would Gold put on his suit and tie to go down to his “lab”? No, I always felt he just lay next to Belle and comforted her.

I also didn’t think he and Lacey did much beyond kissing for several reasons..but I don’t want to get into that….

Oh in TNN, they had sex ALL the time, lol….. they did it, then they got dressed, then again (ditched the party, too, lol)… the morning, lol. It couldn’t have been made clearer. Aside from Gold being incredibly happy, he was breathless and his hair was completely mussed…….. If they hadn’t been accosted by the Charmings, I’m pretty sure Rumbelle would have gone back to the pink house for some more, lol

I was always of the opinion that they were fairly early on. I mean...they were in love, not people who worried much about conventions of their world (Belle wanted to be a hero, didn't like that there weren't many opportunities for women in their land, etc.), had been separated for some 30 YEARS. He thought she was dead. And there was that rather passionate kiss out in the woods. They were sleeping in the same bed pretty quickly. I just have a hard time imagining they didn't end up doing at least SOMETHING. Even if it was one night and then they backed off out of nervousness and because they were having difficulties.

Also, Belle called herself a "kept woman." Which might have just referred to staying with Rumple and his wealth, but I feel like there was more there than just that.

Oh I definitely think they did SOMETHING, probably many different SOMETHINGS :D but I think their bedsharing *started* as a comfort thing (no real reason, just my head canon understanding of who the characters are and the culture they are from) and for it to evolve into more intimate sexual physicality it would have had to have been after Belle stopped needed him for comfort, because there is a blurred line there otherwise and (my head canon) Rumple is old-fashioned and wants to honor her.

What I most love about the speculation is that within those bounds (that I admit exist only in my head!) there is a lot of latitude for all the SOMETHINGS that developed between them, (and I agree with the commenter on this) their relationship took a step forward when he returned from NL.
