It’s not always pretty. It’s not always puffs of magic and romance; sweeping gestures of fairytale living. But with time, they realise it’s the little things that matter most as they make it work. Emma and Killian work at building a life together in their new home.
Emma invites David and Snow to stay with her and Killian while the loft undergoes some renovations. But living with her parents and toddling baby brother turns out to be more difficult than she thought.
“She couldn’t remember when waking up to an unconscious, half-naked Killian on her sofa became a regular occurrence, but it had been for quite sometime.” Being as close as they were, they were bound to get a little heartsick when apart. - Bailbond partners AU
Emma runs the Lost boys foster home - a home for orphaned boys deemed a ‘lost cause’ by the system. With the constant help of Killian ‘former lost boy’ Jones, these two make quite the team when it comes to providing a homely environment for the kids.
Grey’s Anatomy: The Heart of the Matter ↳ Forgive and forget. That’s what they say. It’s good advice, but it’s not very practical. When someone hurts us, we want to hurt them back. When someone wrongs us, we want to be right. Without forgiveness old scores never settle. Old wounds never heal, and the most we can hope for is that one day we’ll be lucky enough to forget.
FAN FIC: Distraction - A Missing Scene from The Apprentice
For the lovely anon who asked me to write another part of the Mystery of the Smile series featuring Henry & Emma or Henry & Hook. I felt like that didn’t fit, but that we did deserve to see Emma and Henry’s conversation before she asked Killian on the date.
Subject: Emma and Henry’s initial conversation about Emma datingKillian. Set right before Emma arrives to ask Killian out in episode 4x04 The
Apprentice. Captain Swan.
Henry jangled his keys as he opened the door to the loft. Upon
entering, he immediately scanned the room. He didn’t see either of
his grandparents, or his uncle for that matter, but he did see Emma
perched on a stool at the kitchen island.
“Hi, Mom,” Henry called. When he got no response he called out to
her again. When Emma didn’t acknowledge a second time, Henry furrowed his brow
and walked over to her and waved his hand in front of her
“Henry!” Emma’s eyes snapped to him and her hand found her
heart. She had clearly been deep in thought. “You startled me, when did
you get here? You’re getting stealthier.”
Henry looked at her oddly and then glanced down at the uneaten cereal in
front of her that appeared to be soggy. “Just now. You didn’t hear
me? I called your name pretty loud. Twice.”
