Episode Tag Series. Short conversations between Snow and Charming and now Elsa and Killian too (mostly about Captain Swan). Start at the beginning. Also on ff.net
Emma sits at the counter in her parent’s apartment, staring at her wrist. It is disconcerting to feel the magic she had just claimed seeping out of her; being pulled into the innocent looking yellow ribbon around her wrist. Emma wants to figure out what is going on but she is exhausted. Her mother had driven her and Elsa home in the bug while the boys walked back to the truck. Emma had wanted another chance to talk with Killian, tease him for missing her firework show, ask him his thoughts on the mysterious ribbon, ask him why he seemed a little distant. But Snow was in full mothering mode and Emma had decided to just let her take control. She would just have to talk to him later.
Snow places a steaming mug in front of her with a smile. “So are you going to tell me?”
"Tell you what?"
Snow rolls her eyes. “What happened in the house? How did you get control of your magic?”
Emma takes a sip of her hot chocolate as she tries to compose her thoughts. “Oh. Well. I was about to use the spell that Gold cooked up. But Elsa came in and told me not to do it. I didn’t think she could help me. I didn’t think anyone could help me.”
Snow reaches out and squeezes Emma’s hand. Emma meets her eyes and gives her a smile before continuing. “And I was right. Nobody could help me. It was all about me. I had to accept my magic, stop fighting it. And…well…I had to accept myself. Love myself.” Emma rolls her eyes. “Ugh. It sounds so cheesy!”
Snow shakes her head. “No. It doesn’t! It makes sense.”
"Really?" Emma casts a skeptical look.
"Sure. I mean magic is tricky, based on emotion. Of course love would be the key."
Emma sighs. “I keep forgetting that you grew up with all this magic stuff.”
"Just cause I grew up with magic doesn’t mean I understand it all."
"Yeah. For instance, I thought that you had gotten control of your magic using True Love’s kiss."
Emma almost chokes on her cocoa and Snow grins at her.
