You forgot the bucket by HollyRoseBriar You forgot the bucket by HollyRoseBriar
Spoilers for a fact in season 2 of Once Upon a Time
.

We've heard in Manhattan that Rumplestiltskin's father tried to abandon him when he was a boy... I heard them talking in the podcast about how they were planning on including a scene in the episode of what happened (but it was cut). Apparently Rumplestiltskin's father owed some money to some ruthless people and he decided it would be better for him if he ditched little Rumple and left town. Rumple woke up as he was leaving and asked what was going on. His father said he was going out to get a drink, and left... but Rumple noticed that he forgot to take the bucket. So he runs out (I assume with the bucket) and he sees his father get killed by the people he owed money to.
IT'S SO SAD! T_T The idea for this picture didn't start out this sad in my head. I just felt like drawing a super cute anime little kid Rumplestiltskin.

I love his hair, though.

I wonder what little Rum looks like... I'm pretty sure they said that they wanted that scene in the deleted scene section of the special features of the dvd set...

I heard that story and I just cried. If they'd shown that scene it would been so much more effective then that scene where grownup Rumple angrily told Milah he wasn't like his father.

Maybe they're saving that cutscene for later so they can expound on that story.

I really don't understand why this was cut. They could have cut the Charming Thanksgiving comment scene and added this instead since it provided more story. I think that's my only pet peeve about Once, lol. Cute but sad pic by the way ;.;

I don't know why it was cut either! Seeing little kid Rumple watch as his father gets caught and killed trying to run away would have hit people a lot harder then even the part where he stands up and said his father tried to abandon him.
Everybody already knows thanksgivings would suck for that family! They don't need Charming to point it out!

I agree that part should have been cut in replacement for this. In the special, the writers seemed proud of that comment as though it was important for them. What I heard was that the reason this was taken out was because it was out of respect for Bobby due to his own family life. Although not sure if that was true or not.

When I heard this, my heart weeped. I wish this was shown on the episode would have been great to give a better insight into why he never wanted to be like his father because showing this flashback is more powerful than Milah saying Rumpelstiltskin is like his father.

Mine, too! I wish it had, too... I mean, when I heard that Rumple didn't want to be like his father, I was like "Ok... I don't know what this guy did, but it must have been pretty awful". I did feel more for the situation when Rumple stood up and said that his father tried to abandon him... But a scene that showed exactly what happened would have just...

Waaaaaaaaaa! My heart ached with sadness when I heard that detail. It's even worse than just the thought of him not even being around to be little Rumpel's father.

I mean... maybe he would have had a change at heart at some point and come running back to little Rumple... kind of like Rumple regretting dropping Bae down the portal. But since he got killed before he had the chance to we'll never know.

That's when you see Rumple's life wasn't happy at all, why he cares to much for his son and why he desires power, in a way... He deserves happiness !

Especially after Milah went strait into hate mode when he came back home after crushing his foot. First his father tries to leave him (and gets killed so he doesn't even have a chance to change his mind and come back so we don't know if he would have) and then Milah starts telling him he should have died in battle. Oh, and then there's all the people who talked bad about him his whole life because of what his father did... and then they got even worse after he left the battlefeild.
I can understand why he is so addicted to magic. He feels worthless without it. Because just about everybody has treated him like he is his whole life.
