    Summary

    Tony wanted to hurl the phone across the room.

    Opening the drawer of Steve’s desk – and lord was it bad enough he was sat in Steve’s office, little used as it was, to read that infernal letter – he rather wished he had.

    No hint of them, in this room, in the letter. No hint of even a second of it; except for the little black velvet box tucked away in the drawer. The ring nestles in deep red material, a thick golden band with a blue star inlaid. In a different circumstance, the answer would be shaking, and the ring would be slipped on with gentle fingers-

    He’s not even sure when he lost it, he just knows that it’s not his, anymore.

     

    How a what-if before Lagos went from being the wrong choice, to the right choice. A Stony Civil War fix-it.

    Summary

    Killian Jones does not want the questions. He doesn't want the interviews or the spotlight or the sky-high expectations.

    The world, however, does not seem to care. The world, after all, loves a good comeback story.

    And Killian Jones is one heck of a comeback story. With his eyes on gold. And maybe slightly gold'ish hair and green eyes and, yeah, maybe he's got some questions of his own.

    Summary

    It was, in theory, a good idea. It was, in theory, an absolutely fantastic idea. Because there was still, sometimes, a crisis or two in Storybrooke and nothing would be more chaotic than trying to find a Christmas present on Main Street, while also trying to keep said Christmas present a secret. Ordering gifts on the internet makes sense. It's just a few clicks and online sales and the presents will be there in plenty of time for Christmas to be perfect.

    Emma and Killian are positive.

    Except then the presents don't show up and it's Christmas Eve and plan B isn't so much a plan as it is just a bit of pre-holiday desperation and the entire town knows what they're up to.

    Summary

    Killian seems confused for a moment, likely at the half-gibberish that’s pouring out of her mouth, but then he smiles.

    “Love,” he says, gently pulling one of her hands from his hook so he can entangle his fingers with hers. “Just say the word. I’ll follow you anywhere.”

    Summary

    They're both rather good at this self-sabotaging thing, neither able to muster up even the pretense of caring about the dates they set each other on. They can't manage the energy for it. It's difficult to care about your date when all you care about is the person that set you up with them. Too difficult to fall in love when you already are.
