The latest Tweets from oona maloney (@oonamaloney_). finally doing the twitter thing i guess. Senior year's the year that you meet people you should've been hanging out with all of high school Me: which aisle can i find light bulbs? . 7, kids died to gun violence in the US since and Sandy Hook Here are. We poked around Oona's for a few minutes. This particular perspective (that of the clothing itself experiencing the world) hadn't occurred to me before. Tinder had been mentioned; we'd talked about hook-up culture, and our Experience: To have experience of; to meet with; to feel, suffer, undergo. In her debut appearance "The Floating Palace", Oona first meets Sofia when she comes to the surface to take a closer look at the Floating Palace. She accidently.
There were always leftover hooks with no matching eyes when she did it at home, and she felt lucky when she identified armholes. No more sitting in front of the television set watching every game. The corners of her mouth turned upward.
People watching TV may see me. Three young women entered and sat directly in front of her. Bodies thudded into creaking seats. She hyperventilated at the beginning of every game. It was why she only dared to watch from home. Anything could happen in baseball. A player could be standing out there in center field picking his nose and the next thing you knew the whole game -- the whole game! They knew how to relax and pay attention at the same time! They had a gift, a precious gift, for getting to the heart of the game, where there was joy.
A roar went up as the players took the field. Roger Paradise, the captain of the team. He knew more about baseball than anyone. Many women in the stadium shifted to get a better view of him -- dark and dashing, handsome enough to be a matinee idol, Evie had heard said -- though Evie herself would never think of him that way. The girls in front of her pointed him out and giggled.
She leaned forward and tapped one of them on her tanned shoulder. And baseball is the epitome of purity. Evie wondered which word they were hearing for the first time. The line-up cards were exchanged. Evie had a good view of Paradise. She felt very close to him now, even though from where she sat he seemed not much larger than he did on TV.

How unhappy he seemed, pacing around and muttering to himself! Evie was puzzled, especially after what had happened the night before.
For one disheartening moment, considering their relationship, she was almost put off. Then she smiled knowingly and settled back to wait. The game was underway.
Patterns of players formed, dissolved, re-formed on the field, its grass lush and green with recent rain. Under the primitive blue sky, it was like watching wheat blowing, Evie thought -- although she had never seen wheat -- or waves whipped by the wind. The visiting team was retired quickly in its half of the first inning, and the home team prepared for its turn at bat.
Paradise stomped the butt out quickly after the lead-off batter flied to right. He took his bat from the rack, inspected it, and headed for the on-deck circle, as a jet roared overhead and a train rumbled behind center field. He knelt, as if in prayer. He strode to the plate, a nagging voice in his head growing louder and louder.
The pitcher, sly and wiry, gave Paradise a knowing leer.

Paradise stepped back into the box, tapped the bat, tapped the helmet, checked his knuckles and wrists, positioned his shoulders just in time. He missed those days. The next pitch was outside.
The crowd murmured its approval. The pitcher cursed himself as his fourth pitch bounced off the plate. Paradise flung his bat to the ground and cantered to first base like a landlord making an inspection. Thirty thousand people cheered him and he never heard a sound. The first base coach praised him, and he never heard a word. In a wary crouch, just wide of the base, Paradise was sad.
Everyone must want to flail out and hit something sometime. The thought led her to glance at the girls in front of her. Three young men in adjoining seats had noticed them, too. The girls seemed to be tanner now, if possible, than they had been an inning ago. Evie leaned her head against the metal section divider. And it would get better. She looked expectantly down at the field. Paradise had been left stranded at first. The second inning was about to start. She waited patiently for his sign.
Evie's invitation to the stadium had come the night before, during a long and hardfought game, twice delayed by rain. She lay on the couch in front of her television in a baseball stupor, trusting the cries of an enthusiastic announcer to wake her if she fell asleep. Just before an expected double play, Paradise, at first base, signaled to the second baseman.
In a strange, hypnotic ritual, he touched his chest, his right ear, his left shoulder, and his chest again. Twice he did that: Then he looked directly at the camera and said, "Evie. Maybe he had been saying, "easy. Upon arriving, Oona and her mother have a debate on the Floating Palace's presence and discovers Sofia followed her home.
Queen Emmaline tells them and Cora about the attack on her Kingdom and that that's why they're not supposed to spend too much time at the surface. When Plank proposes that Queen Emmaline move the ship out of the cove with her trident, Oona is against the plan because she knows Sofia's family is on the ship and how devastated her friend will be if they get hurt and can only watch in horror and listen in dismay as all this forces Sofia to admit that she's a human.
When Plank starts acting negatively towards Sofia, Oona swims forward and angrily defends her by telling everyone how Sofia helped her when she was hurt and appeals to Cora who only says "All I saw was that you hurt your fin. Sven swims forward and says "I saw them.
Sofia was helping Oona swim. When Oona catches up to Sofia, she apologizes for how everyone acted and Sofia gives her a loving hug before sadly swimming back to her ship. On the way back home, Oona is attacked by a sea monster who tries to steal the Mermaid Comb of Merroway Cove from her but fails thanks to the protective charm that's been placed on it. Oona swims back up to the surface and alerts Sofia. The monster captures her and takes her back to a boat and locks her in a cage.

His attempts to break the charm protecting her comb draws the attention of Farley the seagull, who was sent by Sofia to find her, who tells Sofia. Sofia tries to save her by herself but the monster is too powerful.
Sofia comes back with Cora who saves her with the power of the Mermaid Comb. She later witnesses her mother stop the storm and become friends with Sofia's family, to her delight. She reappears in the first episode of the third season, " Cool Hand Fluke ". She introduces Sofia to all her friends and reveals she's in a band.
She plays a variation of a guitar. When her friend Fluke swims off on a dangerous quest, she joins Sofia to help keep Fluke safe. When hiding from the Mantacornshe expressed her anger and disappointment in Fluke for risking their lives because he was jealous of the attention Sofia was getting. She later forgave him as he was allowed to perform with the band. Gallery The Disney Wiki has a collection of images and media related to Oona.
