    Summary

    The Dark Swan pays Regina a visit and the two catch up. Desperation pulls them together. They both hold each other just the same, call each other's name parallel in longing and craving.

    Set in Season 5. Told from both POVs but primarily Regina's. G!P Emma. Rated explicit for language and sexual content.

    Summary

    Upon reflection, Emma probably should have informed her mother of her relationship status years ago. Well, at least her preference.

    “And what did you say?”

    “They know that Emma got married,” Henry told them casually, innocently enough, and Emma knew in that moment that he was more Regina’s kid than anyone realized.

    “And you didn’t tell them – anything else?”

    He shrugged. “And ruin the surprise? I’m not gonna be the Scrooge this year.”

    “Merry Christmas to me,” Regina whispered, kissing him on the cheek. “And Birthday, and Anniversary. And next Christmas. Santa finally listened.”

    “Is there a Santa in the Enchanted Forest?”

    “Obviously not, or this would’ve happened a lot sooner.”

    “Us getting married, or my parents collapsing of a broken heart?”

    She seemed to consider for a few seconds, crossing the threshold into the spacious apartment. “Ask me after I see the look on their faces. I need to compare.”

    Best Christmas Ever.

    Summary

    Without skipping a beat Belle shook her head, tears blurring her vision, and said, “I don’t love Will.” She reached out and held his cheek in her hand stroking it gently. She took a deep breath, and Belle’s voice finally began to break giving into emotion when she said, “and I am NOT letting you die.”

    Belle makes a decision that will change her fate forever. Dark One Belle AU.

    Summary

    “What I want is you.”

    And Regina’s heart bottoms out, she feels dizzy for a second, grapples for any sense of confidence and control that usually comes so easily to her. It’s what she has wanted to hear for years, years of envisioning Emma telling her she feels the same, of them finally allowing themselves to be a them, no more soulmates or pirates or fate keeping them apart. But she never envisioned it like this.

    “I’m not up to be taken,” she grits out instead of the frustrated scream that’s lodged painfully in her throat.

    OR

    Emma becomes the Dark One for Regina. Too bad that all the Dark One wants is to have her way with Regina.
    Regina on the other hand is struggling with her feelings for Emma, while doing her best to not get swept up in the Dark One's desire for her. When they learn of a new type of True Love with enough power to get rid of the Dark One for good will they do what must be done or is the price too high?

    Summary

    Post S7. Emma Swan is finally living her happy ending with Killian and baby Hope in Storybrooke. She has everything she's ever dreamed of- a home, a job, a husband that loves her, a beautiful baby girl, and her parents.

    That doesn't change the chaos-filled almost-decade of being the Savior (and Dark One) that still haunts her dreams. Wracked with guilt and constant panic, Emma's secrets and mistakes threaten to undo her perfect life.

    Meanwhile, Regina Mills, incessantly busy, is finally loved by the people as the Good Queen of the United Realms. When she reconnects with Emma during a brief visit to Storybrooke, things feel like home for a moment.

    But something's not right with Emma, and soon all that old unspoken baggage feels like it might be unearthed.

    Summary

    When Hook first became the Dark One, villagers would show up at all hours on any given day to plead their case of woe to him. Tired of inconvenient interruptions, he arranged three days each season when peasants could come from far and wide to throw themselves on his mercy, though they had to know he possessed no such virtue. It was all about the deal. Never would he have imagined that when the descendant of his old nemesis came before him with a great sum owed, an offer would turn into a betrayal that would in turn become the greatest deal any Dark One could have ever made.

    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

    Emma is a strong magic user unbeknownst to the Queen of The Enchanted Forest, or even her family. A year has passed since she became the Dark One, but there is one thing she has been curious about, and she needs to hunt for it, and to do so is to foil her outer persona, and at the same time, meet someone on the road who shares her curse.

    Summary

    “It’s late, Your Majesty,”

    Your Majesty. The name usually came with a hint of mocking in Emma’s voice, a reference to their time after the curse originally broke. Regina would always bite back with a Miss Swan of her own.

    This time, Emma only sounded weary.

    “I couldn’t sleep,” Regina began, but Emma’s eyes narrowed before she could continue.

    “Liar,” Emma glowered, demeanour suddenly hardening. She turned swiftly to sit at the edge of her bed, eyes cast firmly downwards. “Don’t lie to me. I can tell.”

     

    Or, the one where Gold is awake and alive in Camelot and tells Regina to look out for Emma. And, because Regina is indebted to Emma (having her saved the Queen's life after all), she does.

     

    Season five fix it ficlet. Might have one or two more chapters.

Not to worry though, she’s a bartender, it’s to be expected sometimes. Only, when she goes to open the bar, the woman that scarred her dreams shows up. Emma Swan.

    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).
