Cathédrale St-Julien du Mans,  Maine-et-Loire.

Le Mans Cathedral (Cathédrale St-Julien du Mans) is a Catholic cathedral situated in Le Mans, France. It is dedicated to Saint Julian of Le Mans, the city’s first bishop, who established Christianity in the area around the beginning of the 4th century. Its construction dated from the 6th through the 14th century, and it features many French Gothic elements. Following a fire in 1134, a major rebuilding programme was begun by Bishop Guillaume de Passavant (reg.1142–1186). The new works were partly funded by King Henry II of England who was baptized here, and whose father, Geoffroy of Anjou, was buried here in 1151. (x)

Just want you to write one where Emma get jealous of Regina because of some stupid thing(s). Thanks :)

Thanks for the prompt :) 

Emma huffs as she throws down her icing pen with a pout. She crosses her arms tight against her chest as she watches Regina ice her gingerbread house with a well-practised ease. Even Henry’s is freaking perfect. 

Emma just can’t get the hang of it and as silly as it might sound it’s driving her nuts. She didn’t grow up with anyone teaching her how to ice or baking gingerbread houses. She’s glad Henry did but she can’t help but feel jealous of the way Regina moves elegantly around her house icing roof tiles and little windows. 

She makes it look so damn easy. 

It’s as Regina ices on a flower box that she looks up and sees Emma’s pout. Her brows knit in worry as she sees the self-loathing and irritated look on her girlfriend’s face. She shoots a quick glance across the table to make sure Henry is happily occupied with his own house. Luckily their son is too engrossed in icing dragons to notice Regina slip off of her stool and walk over to Emma. 

Regina slips her arms around Emma’s waist and rests her head atop her shoulder in a makeshift hug, “What’s wrong?” she asks. 

Emma sighs, “I’m being stupid.” 

“How you feel is never stupid,” Regina reminds her, “Not to me.” 

Emma sighs again, “Your house is perfect,” she says pointing to Regina’s, “And I, well I just can’t do it,” she huffs in frustration. 

Regina nods in understanding before taking Emma’s hand and picking up the icing pen, “It doesn’t matter if it’s perfect Emma and no matter what kind it is the best house is one we make together so why don’t I help you??” 

Emma smiles at the offer, “I can be a really stubborn student.”

“I’ll be a patient teacher,” Regina replies, “Just remember that it doesn’t need to be perfect, it just needs to be yours.” 

Emma grins up at her looking into Regina’s eyes as she answers, “You, you are my home.”


“Hey, hi,” Robyn called, as she let herself into Libra’s tent without any other warning. In her arms laid a completely unconscious Henry, limp arm swinging as she walked. Normally she’d be apprehensive about having to re-introduce herself, but at this point she wasn’t even worried about surprising him by being a “female Robin” or whatever. This was because Henry was freaking her out rather badly. 

At some point during their jog over to the closest healer (Libra… the healer’s tent was clear on the other side of the camp), the wizard’s eyes had cracked open even though he was still unresponsive… and that was creepy. At least in her tenure as the camp’s tactician she’d learned that hitting him on the head again wouldn’t fix it.

“He took a book to the face.” she explained, putting Henry in Libra’s bed without so much as asking. He was limp as a ragdoll, still wrapped in her jacket, head back and eyes open a sliver. Robyn looked… sheepish.

“Sorry for barging in.” She finally apologised, if a bit standoffishly. “I think he’s maybe… dying or something.”

Libra was one of the best, if not THE best healer in her version of the Shepherds, if anyone was going to fix what she’d broke, it was him.

I think the 5th season long story will be about Emma's connection to the sorcerer. Her being the savior, her magic being so strong, her connection to lily (always being connected despite Issac). I think CS TLK will be in the 100th episode or some other milestone related to them. I think we will get flashbacks from the 6 week jump too. Hook and Belle got tons of research done that we dont know about.

Wasn’t that research all related to getting the fairies out of the hat? They’re out now, so I’m not sure how helpful that would be. I would like some wee!Killian flashbacks (perhaps contrasting with his new father figure role to Henry?) AND some freaking flashbacks to Emma as a bailbondsperson, post-Person. How do you even get that job anyway? I don’t know about you all but I’ve had enough of foster kid!Emma. It just hurts my soul seeing her so sad and lost, hope broken at every turn.

As for the long story…who knows. I’m kinda hoping that they don’t do two OBVIOUS arcs for 5A and 5B, with two different villains/obstacles. They’ve done that two seasons in a row, I’d like to see them change it up. But we just don’t know enough yet, since there were no post finale interviews!

Meanwhile, in an alternate universe…

Throughout history, corporate and brand-name endorsements have been, and still are, an integral detail of professional sports as a whole. The relationship between Michael Jordan and Nike is arguably the most ubiquitous and commercially successful pairing of brand and player. Today, it is nearly impossible to think about Michael Jordan without Nike - or even Nike without Jordan. Together, the partnership empowered both, the brand and the player, to transcend the sport.

Initially, Mike had openly expressed interest in signing with Adidas, but the deal never came to fruition. What would have been? What could have been? Here is a mock ad that I made to provoke some thought. How important are these alliances between professional athletes and corporations?
