    Summary

    An addition to 'Alternatively...'

    I came across this in my harddrive and I really like the writing of it. There's no real point to it. I think it was written in response to the realisation that if Emma were a guy then there would be no way that he could go down into the mine after Henry and that left only one person small enough...never mind that if Hopper could get OUT then Graham could have gotten IN.

    But I digress.

    Swan Queen if y'all really squint.

    Summary

    Regina rolls a starry blue marble between her fingers and thinks of the light going out of her mother’s eyes as she held her on the dusty floor of Gold’s shop.

    Is this where it all ends?

    All of their corruption and creation and planning, years—decades—of meticulous threads woven together, lives stolen and ended and begotten. All for this:

    Cora, dead by her daughter’s unwitting hand. Rumpelstiltskin, dead by the dagger that made him. Baelfire, the boy for whom all this had been given, dead protecting the father who abandoned him, bleeding out in the arms of the Savior as the letters on the cursed blade, and then the blade itself, fade into nothingness.

    **

    [S2 canon divergence: Rumpelstiltskin dies before Cora can use the dagger in "The Miller's Daughter." Neal dies protecting him.]

    After the events in Gold's pawnshop bring up best-forgotten memories, Henry, Emma, and Regina struggle to come to terms with each other. Meanwhile, a mysterious prankster wreaks havoc across Storybrooke.

    Summary

    In a world where the villains get their happy endings while the heroes suffer, Regina has seemingly everything she's ever wanted. A kingdom to reign over. A Snow White to torment however often she likes. A palace to call her own. And the Savior, trapped and powerless, in the world behind the mirrors.

    Until a wild-eyed boy shows up claiming that he is her son and needs her help, along with the Savior's, to break a curse.

    A canon divergent fic/rewrite of the end of season 4B (episodes 4x21 and 4x22). In other words: Operation Mongoose, Swan Queen style.

    Summary

    Post S7: While a duty driven and exhausted Regina is struggling to unite the many kingdoms she's brought together, Emma is dealing with the end of her marriage and the complicated reasons behind that end. Many which seem to be about a certain hot-tempered Queen. Add on a royal portrait that brings up old nightmares, an impending realm-wide Ball, both women dealing with PTSD from their traumas, and Snow and Henry meddling and it's safe to say that things are going to get messy.

    Or put more simply: a canon-adjacent, somewhat emotional, character study of two women madly in love who just need to get the hell out of their own way.
