    Summary

    Emma Swan is neither especially righteous nor inherently ethical.

    She’s got deft fingers, that’s all. Ones that make picking New York City pockets a breeze and ensures her childhood recruitment into the small band of time-traveling thieves employed by Robert Gold is almost entirely reasonable.

    The jobs are always simple. Travel through time, find the magical objects of the past, bring them back to the present in order to restore that same present’s fledgling magic, and Emma’s good at it. She’s not trying to save magic. It’s just a fun byproduct. Until one last job in the eighteenth-century Caribbean, at the height of the Golden Age of Piracy, threatens to upset the steady schedule of Emma’s life.

    Her instructions are straightforward: Find Killian Jones, find the Unspoken Waters, get back home. Only the longer Emma stays in the past, the more convoluted it all becomes, and for the first time, the job isn’t easy. Because this isn’t the first time she’s met Killian Jones.

    Summary

    Killian Jones lost a lot in Viet Nam—his brother, his hand, his sobriety, and his sanity. He has little hope of reclaiming the last two, until a chance encounter with a little boy—and, more specifically, his fierce mother—at a war protest sets him on a new path.

    Summary

    Inspired by this edit made by itsfabianadocarmo on tumblr.

    Emma intends to give herself a night of relaxing recreation at a tavern, where she has a chance encounter with none other than Captain Hook. He's a bit older than she'd pictured from the tales about him but no less handsome, so she decides to find out if he's still on his game. After a bit of enjoyable conversation, he invites her back to his ship, and with a teasing question and a dangerous promise, the pair head out for a night they certainly won't forget.

    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.
