    Bookmarker's Notes

    I can't kudos anymore cuz it only lets us do it once, but I've read this a half dozen times and it means something different every time. I don't remember much of my abuse, thankfully, but it's still there. Stories like this make me feel normal, accepted, and they help me to feel like a whole person. Outside of the fact that this is just a flat out incredible story, it's also incredibly meaningful, and incredibly powerful in a personal way. So, thank you for sharing, thank you for creating, and thank you for helping to accept. I'm sure so many need this more than I, but I did and do need it. So, thank you, again. So much!

    Summary

    Regina Mills is running an underdog mayoral campaign when her hapless partner in crime, Neal Cassidy Gold, hires his new girlfriend to be a part of it. It's hate at first sight. Emma Swan is infuriatingly attractive, infuriatingly competent, and– most infuriatingly– will absolutely bring down their entire campaign if Regina doesn't get rid of her first.

    Regina is more than up for that task.
