* So how was the curse of Snow's and Rose's family line broken? We're given the backstory, we see all the arming up for no apparent reason -- because Rose never states she wants the power & seems horrified by it, and Snow simply doesn't know, so why are they fighting?? -- but then the curse is somehow gone with no explanation of how it was broken.

** I think that in the Fableverse the Fables that exist there never really went out of style and remained around. This is supported by the popularity of Jack's movies, the cubs playing with action figures of Jack and King Arthur and in an early comic Blue, Pinnochio and Flycatcher are seen reading comics called [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Oz-Men]], [[ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns Red Hood: Riding Hood Returns]], and [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Fairytale Four]].

* What is the round yellow bird at the Farm supposed to be?
* Some cover art in issue #1 shows Snow White with her hand over her heart as if she's saying the pledge, but why has she got a lizard on her shoulder?
* Something that's always bothered me- it's great that Rose finally realized how horrible she was to her sister when she's shown Snow's past in the Homelands and ''truly'' repented. But it seems she only does because she realized Snow hadn't abandoned her for a rich, happy life after all. So... if Snow actually ''had'' done that, would Rose still have forgiven/let go or held onto that that for the rest of her immortal life?

** AbortedArc? A lot of the latter plots seems to be left hanging or given rushed conclusions to finish the comic when it did.

*So, what happened with the whole camelot arc? It kind of seems to have been forgotten after Rose Red killed Mrs. Douglas.

** The events are somewhat alluded in #141, so while it's unclear when they happen, at least they happen before that one. [[spoiler: Beast was never killed. When Goldilocks killed Beauty, somehow the Lamia was inside her and was the second kill for the sword. Bellflower has since reappeared in Fabletown without her husband, and no mention is made of him. All others, if I remember correctly, were characters that only debuted to be killed... and Goldilocks]]

Lady of the Lake was chosen over the Blue Fairy, and she hasn't appeared either(with the implication that the experience has made Lake an alcoholic).

** One can probably attribute this to a combination of the Mundane versions being wrong, Mr. Revise and Kevin Thorn. We know some stories like Snow White are much different and darker than even the originals. And the Literal Mr. Revise implied he can retroactively change reality if given enough time so that his version of the story is the version that has always been. Thorn himself was constantly changing things which is one reason Mr. Revise erased his memory. So, the originals may have happened at one point, but the Literals changed things.

* Shouldn't the Fables be like their original versions instead of the Brothers Grimm version? Shouldn't Cinderella be Greek and Goldilocks an old vagrant woman?

* So, I just finished reading Fairest - In All The Land, and I know StatusQuoIsGod and such, but how the hell did [[spoiler: Beast, the Blue Fairy and many others come back to life after being killed by the Sword of Regret? The word can only resurrect one of the two victims claimed, and Cinderella only chooses to save the girls, yet in the main comic Beast is still alive so he can die fighting Bigby or how Aspen is still alive with Bellflower near the North Wind's palace)]]. The comic doesn't mention how they resurrect, and it contradicts the main storyline. Does this mean that we should treat it as an imaginary story or that they somehow got back to life without an explanation? Also, I apologize if I confused a few details, as the comic is very long and the timeline is too confusing for me to grasp it in one sitting.
