Swan Queen AU Chuck Style: Regina and Emma are happily together but somehow Emma ends up taking a potion that makes her forget all about Regina. Emma asks her to tell their story.
And so Regina tells Emma everything.
She tells her about fights and hatred. About changing and redemption and about unexpected friendship and unexpected feelings. And about Regina fighting her darkness with Emma’s help and about Emma fighting her darkness with Regina’s help. She tells her about sacrifices and looks and smiles and kisses and impossible magic. And about somehow all the impossibles turn into possibles when the two of them are together.
And they cry and smile and even laugh. And when Regina finishes, they are looking at each other like they always did, and all Regina can think is how she missed Emma smiling at her like that. So she starts with a temptive tone.
“You know… Henry has this imaginative idea stuck in his head-” but Regina stops, because she doesn’t know what she’s doing, the words scaping her mouth before she even could think of them.
“What is it?” Emma asks with this small excitement in her voice. And that just reminds Regina of how she’s so much like Henry, like their son. And how they are a family, even now when they are not. And her heart breaks just a little bit more.
"He thinks that… with one kiss you will remember everything.” Regina finishes with a chuckle and she looks down. Because this is just a teenager’s hopeful idea that everything could be fine again, with one magical kiss. And she doesn’t want to believe in it, because it’s simply impossible. Even though deep down, she does anyway, it’s all they have now.
"True love’s kiss?” Emma asks with a smirk in her mouth, looking down quickly before she looks right into Regina’s eyes again. And everything is so much like old times. It’s just them flirting. It’s just them, and everything is fine.
But it’s not really, is it? Because they are not true loves, are they? All Regina can think is fate, and how they beat fate, and how they are sorrounded by fate. And they are not true loves, they can’t be. And even if they were, this is not a curse, and everything is so impossible, even in her head.
"I know you’re not under any curse, it’s-” Regina starts to voice her thoughts with her head down again, just to be interrupted by Emma. Emma calling her name. And Regina is afraid and expectant all the same, because she knows what’s coming next. And she’s still looking down and thinking too much, when she hears again.
"Regina?” Only then she finally looks in Emma’s eyes and answers her.
"Yes?” She waits, she waits looking at Emma, and it’s like before, before everything. Before when they didn’t say the words but it was already in their eyes, when it was like they were staring at each other for an eternity, but it was just a few seconds.
And Emma has that smile again. A smile that is only for her. And all Regina’s fear suddenly stops. Because this is Emma. Memories coming back or not. This is Emma. They can go through anything. Together.
"Kiss me.” Emma finally says with that smile still in place.
So Regina does.
And their story begins…
