    Summary

    It started because love was a weapon.
    Wait--this is how it started: Emma opened her mouth to scream, and the world went dark.

    There was danger and Darkness, and words spoken into the void as she surrendered herself.

    It started because Emma did not want to see anyone else she loved die. (He’d promised her he wouldn’t.)
    Love was a weapon, and it was always used against her, to separate her from the people she loved. (From the person she loved.)

    That's how it started.
    But now Emma Swan, Dark One, has to answer a question:
    How does it all end?

    Summary

    Years after ruthlessly humiliating the man known as Rumple von Stiltskin, Killian Jones faced him once again on the battlefield, though it was clear his foe was no longer an ordinary man. Before succumbing to the fatal injury the Dark One’s blade had inflicted, Killian managed to strike a blow of his own with the being’s own ripple-edged dagger. Now, nearly two hundred and fifty years later, Killian finds himself alive and back in his hometown. However, whatever awoke him from his cursed sleep had also raised the Dark One. With all of Storybrooke at risk, can Killian find a way to stop the Dark One once and for all? Perhaps so. With a little help from Deputy Swan and her boy.

    Summary

    By sacrificing her soul to save Regina from darkness, Emma Swan accidentally travels back in time, ending up in the Enchanted Forest long before Regina became the dreaded Evil Queen.
    Emma will witness all the horrors that happened in the life of the woman for whom she has great affection and for the one who just gave her soul for her to have a happy ending, but in addition to the horrors that led Regina to become the Evil Queen, the newly Dark One will also meet a sweet and innocent Regina who believed in true love and everything that surrounds the story of her own existence.
    During her journey through the past, Emma will discover the secrets (some of them dark) that connect her family, Regina's and also Rumple's and that will bring certainty that her parents aren't the perfect heroes they claim to be.
    In the meantime Emma will have to deal with the understanding extent of her feelings for Regina and what really led her to sacrifice herself for the brunette.

    Summary

    After Belle is cast out of the Dark Castle, she hurries home to her loving father. Of course, she couldn't know her welcome would be... less than welcoming. He demands she be cleansed, with Gaston in charge of her care.

    This one is dark, but not necessarily very graphic. If you don't like the tags, please don't read.

    Summary

    Her hands twitch, almost imperceptibly, a good effort at concealing how uneasy the voices make her, and damn it if Killian didn’t know her so well that he notices. His eyebrows furrow just a little, and his previously comforted gaze now scans her up and down, checking even closer just to make sure she isn’t hiding some secret injury that’s causing her pain. She tries to smile gently, to reassure him that she’s fine, but she can’t tell if it helps.

    Set in season 5a, while they're still in Camelot and before he takes her to the field.

    Summary

    DarkSwanQueen

    Regina never casted the curse (her dads not dead)
    The whole Maleficent/Charmings thing did happen

    The Evil Queen went into hiding, no one knew if she were dead or alive and Snow White and Prince Charming were able to raise their little girl after all but their raising was strict as they didn't want anything to happen to Emma. Emma never felt like her true self, she always felt this type of magic within her as well as anger. That anger only when her mother announce that she were to be force to marry Prince Author (son of Ariel and Eric) so she ran away only to be caught by Maleficent who felt the dark magic within Emma and took her under her wing (no pun intended) teaching her everything she needed to know.

    Summary

    "The Goblin King was prepared to host the Darkness, stealing Fae women away to their corrupted lands underneath the ground as concubines. The Darkness chose another in his stead, but not before this selected vessel enacted a devastating attack in its vengeance, revealing its hatred & rage. The battle was a lesson the old kings had forgotten; never underestimate an opponent.
    Many more lives were lost as they razed over any who dared defy The Goblin King's will. Only the pure love of our rulers united in matrimony, breaking the Vorpal Dagger, sealed the darkness and the Goblin menace away. The light flourished under their fair rule, and the queen bore a child as pure as moon beams, swan feathers, and starlight. They lived happily ever after, and shall be written in history as Heroes for All Time."

    This is the history Princess Emma memorizes from the day she is born, paraded about and presented only with the highest protection. The palace is a cage she wishes to escape, desperately. Not careful what wishes she made, Emma discovers history is written by the victors - The Dark One has an entirely different version of the events that took place.

    Summary

    It has been years since Emma became the Dark One and lost herself in the process. Henry has grown up and started a family and tried to put the past behind him... However in the back of his mind he remembers the promise he once made; when he was grown he would return. He would return and try to save them.

     

    Canon divergent from 5A. This is kinda what I wished they actually did with the Dark One storyline. No Dark Hook cause that was stupid. Also I got this idea from listening to Epic III from Hadestown (hence the title).

    Summary

    Hi! This takes place at the end of Season 4 when Emma sacrifices herself to the darkness to save Regina. Not really sure if I’ll write more on this yet. I hope you enjoy!

    P.s. there will be multiple chapters! I have no idea why it’s showing 1/1 chapters, but ignore that. Second chapter is in the works! Thank you for reading!

    Summary

    She was no Chosen One.
    She was more of the opposite, her happy ending taken from her again... and again... and again.
    When you attract that kind of fate, the most desirable choice is out.
    But to be honest, Brooklyn Natalie didn't have that choice either.

    There were battles she wished weren't hers.
    But the only choice she had was to fight.
    She couldn't save herself.
    Until she met the light.

    A Brooklyn Natalie Novel.
    ABC's Once Upon A Time.
