the craziest thing about the civil war discourse to this day is the posts that are like ‘tony stark needs to just take his government regulations and shove them!’ (in terms both less and more polite) and to that i offer just one itsy-bitsy teeny-tiny point of order
Not trying to objectify Bickslow or anything, but he’s definitely the third wheel in the Fraxus relationship. I bet he gives them tons of shit. Like sits in between them on the couch and at the dinner table, makes kissing noises when they’re really close, takes selfies with them being lovey-dovey in the background, and makes sex jokes on a constant basis. Laxus would probably just be like “omg fuck off” in a friendly, I-get-the-joke kind of way. And Freed’s just the blushing green bean. Overall a pretty average, yet sometimes annoying, third wheel. And I think that’d be the greatest thing ever.
This story is a gift to my favorite person in the world: @wholockgal, whose birthday it is today. Because I love her best of all, she gets yet another story from me that combines two of our fandoms in a weird way, this time it’s Leverage and Once Upon a Time.
If you haven’t watched Leverage, 1) that’s definitely a thing you should do, ‘cause it’s AWESOME, and 2) I think you’ll probably still be able to follow this story, though you might miss a few references, I think the story holds up on its own.
Though it wasn’t originally intended, this story also goes out with all my love to the inimitable Coworker, WLG’s and my friend, who can never find CS stories that heavily feature Zelena, who is her fave. It’s an odd niche, but I like to hope I’ve managed to fill it!
Think of this first chapter as a teaser- the kind of thing you get before the title sequence to be sure you come back from the first commercial break. The more comprehensive chapter will come on Friday, as my usual update.
(And yes, before anyone asks, this will become a 'verse! I already have the next few stories worked out in my head. 'Cause of course I need two crossover 'verses running at the same time, who says I don’t?)
Happiest of happy birthdays, WLG, since I wasn’t able to find you a Killian/Luke hybrid for your birthday, I hope you’ll accept this poor substitute gift.
The Jolly Roger wasn’t yet open when Emma arrived and peeked in through the front windows. She was no lover of early mornings, but the news she wanted to share with Killian was too good to wait for normal business hours.
She could see him there, dark hair still damp from his shower, chin unshaved, moving from table to table, checking levels of salt and pepper in the shakers on each. He’d hired Jim Hawkins and Ned Land at the beginning of the summer to help, but he still insisted on doing the morning preparations himself, before the boys came in.
Emma knocked on the glass of the front door and grinned when he turned to look at her, scowling. She knew him well and could see the slight tilt of his lips and the sparkle in his eye that said he was happy to see her. It had also been well over a week since they’d been able to arrange their schedules to have more than five stolen minutes in his pantry together. She knew he’d missed her, though he probably wouldn’t say it. She had missed him as well, which was her secondary reason for choosing the early hour to bring him the news.
He crossed the diner with a slow, deliberate swagger and Emma rolled her eyes, knowing what was coming. He unlocked the door, taking his time (Emma swore she’d pick the lock herself next time- Sheriff Humbert would forgive her) and when she’d have pushed the door straight in, he caught it and held it open a bare inch.
“We’re not open yet, Swan,” he said through the crack. “Did you turn your alarm clock upside down and read the six as a nine?”
“Let me in, Kil,” Emma said, leaning on the door. It both annoyed and impressed her that, even with almost her full weight against it, he still managed to hold the door steady at that one, frustrating inch.
“What are you doing here, Emma?” He was no longer even pretending to scowl at her. He was smirking, an expression that shouldn’t have been nearly so appealing, but he managed to make sexy. He knew he was frustrating her and was enjoying the game.
Though she’d hardly admit it to him, she was enjoying it too. Circumstance had robbed her of the usual youthful pursuits of flirting and play, and she found as an adult that they were remarkably fun.
“I’m looking for advice,” she said, leaning against the door again which still didn’t budge. She glanced down and saw that his black boot was blocking it, which would explain why she couldn’t move him. “See there’s this guy-”
“Should have guessed,” Killian interrupted, crossing his arms and affecting a casual air. “Handsome bloke?”
Emma shrugged, trying and failing to repress her grin. “Depends on who you ask. I suppose he’s alright if you’re into that sort of thing.”
“‘That sort of thing’ being stunning blue eyes, movie-star faces, and god-like physiques?” Killian asked.
Emma just flapped a hand in the air as though this were nothing and he shook his head.
“If he’s not handsome, then he must be charming,” he drawled.

On this playlist you will find almost every single song ever played on Supernatural, as well as tracks that had episodes named after them, songs that were referenced on the show, and pieces from the score. There is also a “lite version” for those of you who don’t want the instrumentals, anemic pop music, or “Carry On Wayward Son” repeated more than ten times.
I hope you enjoy rocking out to this playlist as much as I enjoyed putting it together. The entire very long track listing is below!
