Can someone please explain the Dark curse contradiction?

In season 1 it was basically cannon that Rumple created the dark curse...He even goes into detail about how he did it.

Now all of a sudden it was the Black Fairy??????

I may have missed it but what is the explanation?

Rumple was lying to everyone about creating the curse.
He told Emma that he created the dark curse in S1 and S2.
However, when he is talking to Belle in the library in S2, he mentions that he "found" the curse. The flashback in S4 confirms that he stole the curse with help from the Queens of darkness.

My headcanon is that he wasn't powerful enough to create the curse. Instead, he discovered the curse centuries after the Black Fairy created it.

It was made known in S1E19 "The Return" that the Dark Curse already existed. Rumple just perfected it.
