    Summary

    The house is dark when he lets himself in, smells musty and empty. Usually this time of year the house smells like a mix of pine tree and cinnamon, of fresh-baked gingerbread and woodsmoke from a crackling fire. His mom goes on holiday baking binges in December, sugar cookies and gingerbread men and cranberry muffins, more than the two of them could possibly eat, so the house smells like sugar all month long. Usually there’s a bowl of clove-studded oranges on the dining room table; he and his mom make them together the first weekend in December while watching Rudolph. Usually there are vanilla candles burning on the front hall table, strains of music drifting through the house. Usually even when everything else is dark, the Christmas tree is still lit up.

    Usually everything is warm.

    Summary

    Every syllable of her confession knots together like a rope that tethers them, making their relationship feel less tenuous every second. Making Emma feel like maybe she hasn’t lost Regina after all. Like maybe what they have is stronger than anything she could do to break it.

    Emma, who breaks everything.

    (Set approximately post-5x21. Regina shuts out Emma. Emma isn't having it.)

    Summary

    Once, when she couldn't sleep, when the empty spaces of her apartment suffocated her, she sat on her sofa and watched a documentary. That's how she learned what a hypnic jerk was, and that's the closest descriptor to what she felt when the door to 108 Mifflin Street swung open. When Regina scooped Henry into her arms, when the hurt shot across her eyes at Henry's dismissal, when she turned her eyes towards Emma, dark like pitch.

     

     

    You're Henry's birthmother?

    Summary

    She thought breaking the curse would be different. Like, vials of blood and a circle of candles and salt or something, some form of deliberate preparation. She didn't think it would be so accidental, how one day when the sunlight caught Regina just right, the playful twinkle in her eyes, her lips pulled in a teasing smile, and Emma felt so light, and she may have thought, I could make a family out of this. She just leaned over and kissed her.
