Who wrote "The Book" in Once Upon A Time?

In season 4 of Once Upon A Time, Regina and Henry have been trying to figure out who wrote the book in the Enchanted Forest, so that they can convince the person who wrote the book to write Regina a happy ending. I have a few ideas of who actually wrote the it, but first let's think about how the book came to be. 

The first person we saw the book with was Mary Margaret (Snow White) in Storybrooke. She gave it to Henry to help him. Some how the book ended up in one of the drawers of her desk. Now when we think about the past of the Enchanted Forest, when the wardrobe was made to save Emma and send her through to save everyone from Regina's curse... Snow gave the book to Pinnocchio, so that he could remind Emma of who she was and so that they wouldn't forget where they came from. So we know that somehow Pinnocchio was separated from the book at some point of time and some how the book ended up in Snow's possession in Storybrooke. 

So who put the book in Snow's desk and who actually wrote the book?

At one point of time I thought that the Queen of Hearts, Regina's mother Cora, wrote the book. I mainly thought this because she wanted Regina to have a hard time. This would in turn keep Regina steadily growing stronger, but also bond them together in a voyage of evilness and destruction. 

I then realized that that wasn't the case because Cora couldn't have known every story that occurred with everyone in the book. Also she didn't really care about anyone, but herself. Plus, she's deceased so it couldn't have been her.

At the beginning, I considered it being the Blue Fairy because she knew a bit too much of everything that occurred and everyone's whereabouts. She also had the magic to see the future as well or at least predict the possibilities of things. I still think that it is a possibility that she could still be the author.

The possibility of Emma writing the book in her past came to mind. She could have wrote the book during a moment in time when she went to the past, but I somewhat doubt it.

I also thought that maybe Snow White wrote the it to give to Emma since most of the stories revolved around her, but this book is magic and Snow White doesn't have magical powers.

I speculated that the Snow Queen, Ingrid brought the book back with her to Storybrooke or it was possible that she wrote the book to lead up to the moment of her being united with her possible sister Emma, but that didn't make sense either because she would have had to been around every moment that occurred unless she could see the past.

Glinda.. The Good Witch of the South was also apart of my theory. She is the keeper of the book of records, so it is very possible that she could be the book's writer. However, she was mainly focused on the land of Oz at the time.

The seer or a seer could have taken the time to write it or at least have someone write a book since she had the powers to do so. Even though the only seer that we knew of died when Rumple took her powers, there could have been another seer that saw the future.

Rumplestiltskin was the main person that I figured wrote the stories because he was always great at riddling possible dangers and occurrences. However, certain things happened to his disadvantage a few times so I figured he couldn't have been the one who wrote the book. He also explained that he never wrote the book even though he lies occasionally.

Belle... was also someone I considered as being the writer of because she loves to read. I'm assuming she'd be a great writer as well and to some extent she is also connected to practically all of the characters in Storybrooke. However, she doesn't have magic and she also was the one that found the house where the room of where the books similar to Henry's was in though...which means she definitely isn't the author. She just found the author's home.

The main person who I believe to be the book's writer is the Apprentice of Merlin... who could also be Merlin. I'm not exactly sure if the apprentice is actually Merlin or if he is Merlin's student since we haven't been introduced to Merlin yet, but the Apprentice is the oldest known person from The Enchanted Forest. They could be the same person. 

The Sorcerer knows things that have never happened which is mentioned at the end of episode 9 in Season 4. So it is possible that he wrote the book. I mean, we do not even know if the apprentice or Merlin has been in Storybrooke this entire time, but we know that he's been there for a while. Yen Sid and Merlin could be the same person. Regardless it could either be Yen Sid or Merlin who is the book's author.

I mean, this does brings up the question of what would his purpose be for writing the book though?


Honorable Mention

I even considered the Pagemaster as being apart of Once Upon A Time and being the person who wrote it, but I'm guessing we will find out who wrote the book sometime next year.


Overall, we know that someone powerful and magical wrote it. 
Who do you guys think wrote the book in Once Upon A Time?

I mean, I would honestly just ask Snow White where she got the book from before the curse in The Enchanted Forest...but I guess everyone has overlooked that, especially Henry and Emma.
