I was talking to @tides-miraculous earlier and had a sudden realization about the Césaire twins names. They share their first names with the absolutely legendary jazz singers Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald. You might know Etta James as the singer of the classic ‘At Last.” They both had so many legendary works, and I just had to draw the girls singing along.
It could be a coincidence? But Thomas is the clever sort, I can’t help but think he did it on purpose.
Summary: After a series of events leave her life in pieces, Emma Swan finds herself hitchhiking out of Maine, her wallet empty and her heart broken. The best she hopes for is a driver who isn’t a pervert and takes her far away from the painful memories of Storeybrooke. But when she finds a ride with a quiet truck driver named Jones, Emma discovers that maybe a trustworthy friend is all she needs.
(also @teamhook, who really wants to read this ^^)
The southbound on-ramp seemed to beckon to her, stretching wide and flat
up the small hill until it crested on a small incline, leading to the
highway. Emma gnawed her lip, torn. She
didn’t know whether it was legal to hitchhike on highways in Maine—it was definitely
illegal in some other states—but even if it was, the alternative was trekking
back to the truck stop in Bangor and trying to con someone there into giving
her a ride.
And if I did, I’d end up using my
boobs to do it, she thought bitterly. She gritted her teeth, suddenly
filled with determination, and strode forward toward the ramp.
Chilly wind whistled from beneath the underpass, and she reached up to
pull her tuque lower, snugging it around her ears. Then taking a deep breath,
she extended her arm and put up her thumb.
