captain swan = canon

ask-david-charming-nolan  asked:

Not so long ago, I probably would have punched you for this. But I know you'll be a great father, Jones. But the question is: are you ready?

Ready? 

Is such a thing possible? 

@askbellefrenchgold has lent me reading material on the subject and it’s terrifying… rather alarming.  The book says not to wait if there are signs of a problem and I should call the doctor right away if she’s nauseous, among other things.

But the last three times I called, Victor hung up on me.  Are we certain he’s a… real doctor?

Also, I think Swan hid my phone…

Turning the Page (4/?)


Summary: After several long years, Emma and Killian are finally getting the second chance they thought was beyond reach. At the same, Henry Mills is still struggling to find his own story while beloved family members live out theirs. Belief and hope guiding him, he leans on his other mother, Regina, and another version of his stepfather, Captain Hook, to help him write his next chapter. And someday he’ll return home to share his epic tale with the rest of his Charming family.

Rating: Mature (for now)

Author’s Note: This chapter is twice as long as normal ones and I think from now on I’ll be posting every two days. Just an FYI, I cried writing this chapter. It has been really cathartic writing my pain into Emma’s journey. There is a discussion of death and loss in this chapter. The next few chapters will be rocky but hang in with me. We will break through the darkness and find the light. This chapter has already been posted on ao3 and ff.net. I love reviews so if you have thoughts on this story my inbox is always open.


Emma felt a mix of emotions as Killian opened the door for her and she stepped inside their home. Her heart missed Henry every second of every day. She didn’t tell Henry, but she had checked on him from time to time over the years. Mirror magic was definitely a handy thing. Regina joined her and Killian on a few occasions and they watched Henry for hours at a time, the three of them reliving memories of their son as a child. A few times, Emma even used her cell phone to snap a few pictures of the images she conjured in the mirror to show her parents.

Killian asked her one of the times they had checked on him how she thought Henry still had gasoline for his motorcycle. Emma figured he had used his Author’s pen to magic some gas into the tank. Since Emma had gotten pregnant this time she had checked on him more often then she would’ve liked to admit.

The worst of it, Killian thinks, is that for a moment, he doesn’t recall the man’s face.

He was nothing but a liability, standing between his crew and enough riches to carry him from one day to the next, bleeding out a living until he could sink his hook into the crocodile’s neck. And he doesn’t recognize David’s father at first, because he’d been merely one in the stream, one of the nameless voices that whispers to him late at night, or early in the morning, growing louder and louder, until he’s forced out of bed – and out of the endearingly tight circle of Emma’s arms – to wander along the line where the town meets the sea.

Only now, this one has a name, and the longer and harder he peers down at the drawing, the more familiar he seems. Not only from a hazy memory, but from the set of his brow, the swell of his cheeks, features he sees in the man he now calls his friend, and in the woman he longs to call his wife. And here, in the midnight shadows of the home he shares with her, he holds tight to the incriminating pages, a wisp of the darkness still stirring in his heart suggesting he surrender them to the sea.

Soft Daddy!Killian Things

~ he sings to his baby. Sea shanties, lullabies, songs he makes up just for them. 
~ he watches his baby sleep incessantly. (I wrote an entire series about this.) 
~ he’s the first to hear the baby cry in the night. He goes and gets the baby, and snuggles him/her for a few minutes to calm him/her down before waking Emma up so she can breastfeed.
~ he loves picking out the baby’s outfits. Emma thinks it’s adorable and lets him do it every day. 
~ he always makes sure the window is open (even if just a crack) in the baby’s room. Exposure to fresh, sea-scented air is important. 
~ when the baby is seemingly inconsolable, his go-to is direct, skin-to-skin contact. The baby in just a diaper, him with no shirt. A blanket covering them both on the back porch, the baby tucked under his chin, against his heartbeat. It works every time.
~ he’s a baby-face kisser. Nose kisses, forehead kisses. Soft little eye-lid kisses when the baby’s asleep. And cheek kisses. There can never be enough cheek kisses.
~ when he talks to his baby, he gets this special tone of voice. This soft, velvety lilt that is the gentlest, most soothing thing that Emma has ever heard in her entire life. It frequently gives her goosebumps when she hears it. 
~ he hates being away from the baby in any capacity. What if he misses something? What if she/he needs him? (He doesn’t leave much)
~ he tears up whenever he hears Emma talking to the baby. He is very certain that she’s the most wonderful mother in all the realms. 
~ he takes the baby sailing, and tells stories about his past. About his mother, his brother. About Milah. About how he met Emma and she saved him in every way a person can be saved. And all about Henry, too. He tells the baby everything.
~ he loves giving the baby baths. He loves the smell of the soap and the sound of tiny toes splashing about. 
~ he’s always concerned about the baby’s warmth. “Don’t leave without a hat for the babe, Swan. Are you sure those pyjamas are warm enough, love? It’s supposed to be cold tonight.” When Emma questions him about it, he reminds her that she herself is always cold. And they wouldn’t want the baby to be cold, now would they? 
~ there’s no sight he cherishes more than the sight of his baby smiling. Nor is there a sound he cherishes more than the sound of his baby laughing.
~ and above all, he makes damn sure that baby knows they’re loved. Infinitely, timelessly, irrevocably loved.

Finale Canon Divergence time - so, imagine that the magic bean Killian retrieved from the beanstalk was still usable and I’m gonna spin off from there…(cause I wanted the payoff for the lengths Killian went through in the EF to try to get back to Emma) - 900 words


Regina and Snow have a silent conversation and seem to come to an agreement, both of them looking at Killian with equal looks of unwavering determination.

“Go, use the bean. Get to Emma and do whatever it takes to help her believe again. I’m going to find David and Regina will do whatever she can to hold this place together.”

Killian grips the bean tight in his palm, feeling both incredulous at the suggestion and relieved at the same time. So many of the people he will need to leave behind have become his family, but he knows none of that will matter without Emma by his side.

“Snow, I can’t leave you all here to…”

“Killian, she needs you. We need you. Go. Now!”

I sometimes feel bad for canon ships. If you look at the ship threads the shippers in canon ships have alot less determination than non-canon ships. I mean look at the drarry shippers they have been going non-stop for nearly 20 years, so next time you are feeling bad about your ship not being canon think about how much more fan fiction, art, and imagines you have because your fellow shippers are the best! Also these ships have the most determined, creative ,and generally good people on the platform.

Captain Swan AU Week  » Day 5 » Episode Season Rewrite » S7 » Missing Piece

They both felt like they did not belong in their own lives, and like their lives were missing something. It didn’t help that every now and then certain things or people would trigger strange dreams or memories of what seemed like a different life. 

When their paths crossed the first time, they both felt a connection, but neither said a thing. Next time they met, he was brought into the ER unconscious and beat up, and she was the doctor who treated him. Over the weeks he spent recovering they bonded, and in time revealed to each other how they felt something was wrong with the world the live in. They agreed to further investigate and get to the bottom of things together.  

A bit of canon divergence in which Naval! Killian replaces August in the Wish Realm.

“It’s just,” he shuffles his feet and scratches at the back of his ear, a furtive glance shot at her from beneath thick eyelashes. “The Princess I knew liked pretty things.”

She tilts her head to the side and considers him – the blush that stains his clean-shaven cheeks, the uniform that stretches tight over his shoulders. He’s the same age here as their own realm, but he feels more innocent. Subdued. He bites his tongue against his remarks and regards her from the corner of his eye, careful to keep appropriate distance from her at all times. But he’s still, well –

She supposes she still likes pretty things.
