    Summary

    Mulan pinches the bridge of her nose, closes her eyes, and attempts to tamp down her- is it frustration? Bewilderment? Something along those lines. “Emma.” She begins slowly, willing herself to breathe, “When I told you not to get involved with magic, I did not mean ‘Emma, get involved with magic, use it to combat other forces of magic while wielding a sword of legend, and then overthrow a monarchy’.”

    Emma gives her a flippant shrug, “These things happen.”

    (an AU of the Heroes & Villains AU inspired by the Russian fairy tale, "Tsarevitch Ivan, the Firebird and the Gray Wolf" featuring ominous prophecies, a myriad of collapsing architectural structures, and inexplicably, possibly a ficus.)

    Summary

    “I wasn’t actually out on patrol,” he tells her, still panting. “I followed you here.”

    “What? Why? ” Emma asks him. There’s a long pause where the boy seems to deflate. It’s like all his swagger disappears, and what’s left is a timid, impossibly young kid. Her heart races and she doesn’t know why.

    “My name is Henry Mills,” the kid says eventually. Emma actually does stop breathing then. “I’m your son.”

    (Or, how Emma Swan met Henry Mills, and re-connected with his other mother. It's complicated.)

    Summary

    “Well, let’s see…” Regina trails off in thought, even though she knows exactly what she wants, lungs and blood and foolish heart all yearning for the one thing she hasn’t quite managed to obtain for herself. “I think your firstborn child should be adequate payment.”
    Her customer’s brow furrows. “My firstborn child?”
    Regina inclines her head slightly. “That’s what I said.”
    Emma splutters like an old car unwilling to start. “But - I mean - look, lady, I don’t even have a boyfriend -”
    “I can wait,” Regina says lightly. It’s true. She’s waited a long time and a couple of years (or decades, as the case may be; Regina isn’t sure Miss Swan is quite the type to settle down with the first man she sets her eyes on) aren’t going to make a huge amount of difference.

     

     

    or, the one where Regina desperately wants a kid but also ends up desperately wanting Emma Swan but she can't have both because, well, it's really quite complex.

    Summary

    The slightly bizarre, not exactly normal tale of how Emma was a nun, then she wasn't a nun, then she was a nanny for the seven adopted children of a super hot, super scary ex-Air Force Captain, and then she did the most stupid thing possible, which was fall in love with her.
