    Summary

    Just days after Emma announces her engagement, Regina is found in her vault without any memory of the past five seasons. The newly returned Mayor Mills is caustic, scheming, unnerved by her own future, and loves only Henry– and she might see more clearly than anyone around her.

    Then again, that might not be for the best.

    Summary

    Perhaps a young ingénue will come across a beast, see past the facade to the inner beauty, and fall in love. Perhaps a young ingénue will prick her finger on a spinning wheel and fall into a deep sleep, only to be rescued by a gallant prince with luscious hair and eager lips.

    Well, our tale contains no ingénues, although there is a beast, as well as a princess with quite luscious hair.

    And lips. The lips will play a rather important role.

    (Or, a Beauty and the Beast retelling in which the Beast gets his comeuppance and Mrs. Potts gets the girl.)

    Summary

    “The name is just for show. It’s supposed to bring out some of your deeper desires. Spurs you to act on them,” Regina explains, even though Emma stopped paying attention several words ago.

    Their eyes lock, and Emma feels that same prickling sensation on the back of her neck.

    “Is there… anything you want to do?” Regina asks finally.

    It’s like a flick of a switch.

    (It's a late night in the vault and Emma accidentally kisses Regina Mills)

    Summary

    Goes AU after the sneak peek from 614, right after Emma shares her news with Regina.

    She wants Regina to have what she deserves most of all, but Regina so rarely gets it. And today, she looks even unhappier, and maybe that’s why Emma can’t find the smile to plaster onto her face again. “We’ll still…I’ll still be co-parenting with you,” Regina says carefully, and she reaches up, tucking hair out of Emma’s face with a motherly sort of gentleness. Emma shivers, and Regina smiles painfully. “Until the end of time.”
     
    “Unless I die next week, of course,” Emma points out, and Regina looks at her with sudden fierceness.

    “Like I said,” she says tightly. “The end of time.”
