DOUBLE FEATURE FRIDAY -JULY EDITION

Our prompt was “Dave teaches Killian how to shop online” 

Check out @whimsicallyenchantedrose take on the same prompt here. 

Killian Goes Shopping 

This takes place sometime in the near future

Killian and Emma had settled into a routine of sorts with their living arrangements and he was getting adept at playing games with Emma’s boy on the picture box, but using the magic box was not something that gave him comfort.  He preferred getting his information from books, thank you very much.

And the fact that he enjoyed books, is how he came to be in his current dilemma.   He and Emma had made a point to have what she termed ‘date nights’ each week and he had taken those opportunities to purchase trinkets for her.  A new pirate key fob for her yellow vessel, a new tube of her favorite lotion, a bar of chocolate, all trinkets he could purchase at the local market. But the item he currently wanted to purchase, he did not want to be the talk of the entire town.

Fluffy Fridays—Chapter 88: Maybe You’ve Become Family

Pairing:  Captain Swan (and Captain Cobra Charming)

Rating: T

Summary:  A series of unrelated, fluffy one shots featuring  Killian Jones and Emma Swan and the relationship that makes us all  swoon. Will contain both canon and AU stories. My contribution to  Operation Rainbow Kisses and Unicorn Stickers (aka, my attempt to drown  out the season 4 finale angst with ridiculous levels of fluff.)

CS genre: Deleted scene (from the end of the season 5 finale)

It wasn’t until the entire group was back together in Neal’s apartment that everything hit home for David. It was always like that in times of crisis.  While the crisis was going on, he was laser focused on finding a solution, saving those he loved, but as soon as calm descended, he suddenly realized what had almost happened.

“You okay?” Snow asked softly, squeezing his hand and leaning down to look into his eyes.

He should have known she’d realize when he was dealing with something.  They did, after all, share a heart.

“Yeah,” he said, flashing her a big toothy grin (that he suspected did nothing to reassure her), “what’s not to be okay about?  We all made it!”

She gave him a skeptical look, but let the matter drop.

Across the room, Killian sat with Emma, their heads close, their hands clasped, as they shared a quiet conversation.  David smiled, joy filling him at the sight of his daughter experiencing such obvious happiness.

The joy quickly turned to reflection once more.  The stupid pirate had almost gotten himself killed again!  How many times did that make now?  Four? Five?  One of them coming at David’s own hand in Rumple’s twisted alternative universe.  It was more than Emma should ever have to deal with.

It was more than he should ever have to deal with.  Fact was, Killian had somehow made his way into David’s affections.  He was not only family (or would be so as soon as Killian and Emma made it official), he was a true friend.

We have talked (and debated) for years about the best way to bring some sort of subscription plan to our viewers, and with FilmStruck and the Criterion Channel, we believe we’ve finally found it. The first week on the channel, we’re bringing back the out-of-print commentary from The Silence of the Lambs. Catch a double feature on Friday nights. Find a short with a feature on Tuesdays. The possibilities are endless, and we’ve just begun to explore them.

FilmStruck Launches October 19! Over on our site, read a note from Criterion partners Jonathan Turell and Peter Becker

CS Genre: Captain Cobra Charming Canon Divergence (66x3)

A/N:  This “episode” of Fluffy Fridays was originally posted as part of last summer’s Captain Charming Double Feature Fridays on Tumblr

“That’s right lad! Advance!”  Killian said, holding his stick out before him, ready to parry the next blow.  “When you have your adversary on the retreat press your advantage.”

David watched from his place behind a tree at the edge of the park.  While on his rounds, he’d heard a commotion and gone to investigate.  He’d relaxed before he’d even gotten in view of the battle, Henry and Hook having taken up sturdy sticks and “sword fighting”, hearing Henry laugh joyously, a sound that was all too rare after all that had happened over the past few months.

David’s first inclination was to find a stick of his own and join the fray, but he thought better of it. Hook was a master swordsman—trained by the royal navy, with centuries of practice perfecting his skill.  Could be that David could pick up a few pointers.

Not that he was going to let his not-quite-son-in-law know he needed them.  A man has his pride after all.

Of Ships and Ports and Birds and Bees

It all happened one crisp, cool October evening in the stables of Camelot.  

When peace was restored in Storybrooke, it occurred to the town that they still had the Black Fairy’s wand, and were thus capable of creating portals anytime they wished. The Charming/Swan/Jones family had decided to make a visit to Camelot, hoping to enjoy its splendor under better circumstances than the last time.  On the third evening of their visit, Killian talked Swan (now his wife) into taking a moonlit ride to the Middlemist fields.

So it was that the two of them came upon Henry and Violet kissing as they lay together in one of the horse’s stalls.

Yesterday evening I watched Lindsay Anderson’s O LUCKY MAN! with the Double Feature Friday crew. What to say about this film that hasn’t already been said? Well, I bloody loved it. I have an affinity for fiction with barely any narrative (as long as it works), and this is a shining example. I don’t want tor ramble on about the film for fear of sounding ignorant, but it’s to my shame that I hadn’t seen it before. I think “Wow!” is all I can say!

July’s prompt was: “David teaches Killian how to shop online for a birthday gift for Emma.”

A Conversation with Mr. Amazon

Killian stood behind the wheel of the Jolly Roger as she glided through the calm waters of the Storybrooke bay.  Twilight was starting to paint the sky, and he thought he really ought to return to the docks before night descended on him and Swan began to worry.

It had been several months since Zeus had granted him a new lease on life, and he and Emma were now married and tremendously happy together.  

Killian docked his vessel, and looked out at the colors of the sunset.  Normally, a sail was just the ticket to clear his mind and set him to rights, but today was different.  After what the lad told him he felt distinctly uneasy.

Would he ever learn all of this land’s strange customs?

It was more than he should ever have to deal with.  Fact was, Killian had somehow made his way into David’s affections.  He was not only family (or would be so as soon as Killian and Emma made it official), he was a true friend.

Watching your friend almost die, die (multiple times), and have to be left in the Underworld, was too much for any man to deal with.

And so it was, when the group from Storybrooke found themselves standing before the two cars that would take them back to their home, that David made his decision.  Come hell or high water, he was going to watch his mate’s back.  It was the right thing to do.  For his daughter, for his family.

For himself.
