  • Killian: .....*angst*

Neal starting to walk is the worst thing ever to happen. Of course, a child reaching developmental milestones is a wonderful process and her mother has made sure everyone in town has seen the video on her phone of his first steps at least twenty times (and Emma is pretty sure she’s seen it more than anyone). But practically speaking? It’s the worst.

As soon as he’s able to, Neal wanders off all the time.

No sooner has Emma taken her eye off him for a fraction of a second than he’s off causing mischief— now Granny just sighs when she sees him pull up her hydrangeas in the pots outside the diner and Emma apologises on her brother’s behalf for the the third time and, with any luck, final time. Though, Neal does help to smooth things over in his way by smiling a sweet gummy grin which makes everyone around him fall in love with him again. 

Emma tries to make sure she has reinforcements whenever she babysits her brother either in the form of Henry or Killian because having an extra of eyes on him is almost essential.

“I’ll get him,” Killian tells her with a sigh when Neal starts toddling off whilst they’re walking back to her parents apartment with him. Emma smiles gratefully at her boyfriend, watching him jog after her brother who is surprising speedy given his tiny legs.

Neal isn’t paying attention, so amused is he with making Uncle Killian chase after him, so his leg gets caught in a stray twig and he trips. Emma gasps audibly and starts running to Neal before she even realises her legs are moving while he starts bawling.

Killian gets to him first, easily scooping him up with one arm and pulling him close. “Oh no! You okay there, young one?” he says gently. “Show me where it hurts.” 

Neal tearfully holds out his scraped hands to Killian who carefully brushes the dirt and grit away. Killian kisses them better, then kisses Neal’s face all over and tickles him with his free hand until Neal stops crying and starts squirming and laughing with delight. 

Emma watches them fondly. A glimpse of a future passes in front of her eyes—Killian as a father, tending to their kids, patching up their wounds like he did with her on that damn beanstalk so long ago. In her mind’s eye, they all look just like him; big blue eyes and soft dark hair and their grandmother’s chin passed down the generations. She can see them all so clearly in that moment that it’s almost real : herself, Henry, Killian with a tiny version of him in his arms.

Killian doesn’t stop trying to cheer Neal up until he’s resting his head contentedly against Killian’s shoulder and stroking the textured leather of his lapels with his thumb in his mouth. Killian walks over to her, kissing the top of Neal’s head absentmindedly. 

“What?” he asks, noticing the look on her face.

Emma shakes her head and looks away, smiling. “Nothing.”

True Love Club

I’m sure variations of this idea have been done, but I couldn’t get it out of my head. I never should have started writing FF, I can’t stop myself now… 

Killian pushed the heavy door of The Rabbit Hole open and scanned the dimly lit room for his drinking companions. Spotting Charming and Robin at the end of the bar, he made his way over, narrowly avoiding the dwarf he could never remember the name of on his way.

Robin clapped him on the shoulder as he sat down on the barstool.

“Jones, what took you so long?”

“Sorry mates, I ran into Archie on the way here and he wanted to see how I was doing after the whole heart thing. Man, that cricket can really talk, huh?”

Charming chuckled at that. “Yeah, it’s his job…mate.”

Killian motioned to the bartender for his usual while Robin and Charming resumed the conversation they were in the middle of before he arrived.

“So, yeah…I woke her up from a sleeping curse. Rainbow light show lit up the forest after that. It was pretty spectacular, if not incredibly stressful.”

Pointing to the tattoo on his arm, Robin quipped, “Well, I guess I was lucky then. All I had to do was get inked. I haven’t had to test it yet, but Tink assured Regina we were the real deal.”

“Oh great, are you two swapping True Love stories again?” Killian grumbled and took a big swig of his rum.

Glancing to the pirate who was brooding into his glass, Charming reluctantly admitted, “Your time will come, Jones. Hopefully not any time soon though, as I’m not relishing living through another curse in the near future.“

Killian scratched behind his ear, his tell that something was making him nervous. “Er, don’t hold your breath, mate. Been there, tried that. It didn’t work.”

Charming choked on his beer and Robin stared incredulously at the pirate.

“You what? When? You tried True Love’s kiss on my daughter and I am just hearing about this now?
