“There are fixed points through time where things must always stay the way they are. This is not one of them. This is an opportunity. A temporal tipping point. Whatever happens today will change future events, create its own timeline, its own reality.”- Eleven in Cold Blood

“Listen, there are moments in every civilizations history, in which the whole path of that civilization is decided, the whole future path. Whatever future humanity might have depends upon the choice made right here and right now.”- Twelve in Kill the Moon

she says,
“come here”,
and I do,
because even though
my hands are shaking like autumn leaves
and my blood is freezing in my veins like the curse of winter,
she is flowers in the spring,
she is the heat of summer,
she is the wind,
she is the sun.

she says,
“follow me”,
and I do,
because I could never let her walk away.
I would go to the ends of the earth before
I lost her.
Finding her was the luckiest I’ve ever been.
When people climb mountains,
or explore the bottom of the ocean,
she is what they’re looking for.

she says,
“kiss me”,
and I do,
because I was afraid of the dark but now
she is the light,
she is everything beautiful.
I am afraid of sin,
but she tastes like heaven,
her bones are relics,
her skin is holy.

she says,
“love me”,
and I do,
because the crescent of her smile is enough
to make the moon jealous,
her eyes could make the stars weep.
she finds things in me I never could have found on my own.

she says,
“love me”,
and I do,
because it’s impossible not to.

she says,
“love me”,
and I do.
God knows
I do.

—  Musings on my muse

 It is said that the woods behind Storybrooke are haunted by the ghost of two lovers, a pirate and a princess.

Their story is long, full of tales of daring and adventure, beanstalks and witches but the tale of their death is the one we tell for today is the day on which, many years ago, the princess fell. The town was set upon by a terrible evil and the people pulled together to fight, just as they always had and the princess led them, just as she always did. They fought long and hard but the power of the town appeared to be no match for the demon. It fell upon the princess to devise a way to save her home and the only way she could think of was to use all of her magic. The pirate protested, as did the king and queen for the only way all the magic of a soul could be harnessed was if the soul left their body.

The princess insisted. They did not agree. The pirate held her and kissed her and asked for her to stay if she loved him. She kissed him and told him that she had to do this because she loved him.

She succeeded and the great evil was defeated. But, the princess fell that day and the pirate held her close to his chest and wept for hours for his only true love was gone from him. He lived many years in mourning, longing for the sight of his beautiful princess once more. He left this world in his sleep, loving her till his very last breath.

Now they are together, here where they loved and lived. They relive the days in which they were happy and long for the days that were stolen from them. So be wary if you ever come upon them, for they will never let anybody take them from each other ever again.
