Alone, Until I Get Home (1/?)

Summary: In Boston, Henry Swan’s six-year-old brother Ian finds a book titled “Once Upon a Time” hidden beneath the seat in their mom’s old yellow bug. As soon as Henry touches it, he remembers.

Season 3 Canon Divergence-Emma finds out she’s pregnant a few weeks after she and Henry leave Storybrooke with new memories and new lives. Nearly seven years later, another Dark Curse puts her family in danger, and Emma must return to Storybrooke to help them.

Who’s powerful enough to cast the Dark Curse? And how the hell is she going to tell Hook they have a son together?

A/N: You don’t have to have read “I belong to you, you belong to me” to understand and/or enjoy this one, but this is basically a “what if Emma had gotten pregnant with Ian right after Neverland instead of in Camelot” sort of scenario, with a shit ton of other stuff (angst! adventure! fluff! confused pirate dad Killian!) thrown in.

I hope you’re ready for this new adventure because I AM REALLY FUCKING EXCITED!!!!!!!

Thank you to @losttalongthewayy for all your help editing and for listening to all my worries concerning this fic; you’re incredible!!!

Chapter 1 - SNEAK PEAK

Summary: It’s been nearly seven years since Emma and Henry left Storybrooke when Henry and his six-year-old brother Ian find a book titled Once Upon a Time beneath the seat of the yellow bug. As soon as Henry touches it, he remembers.

A/N: I’m getting close to finishing the first chapter and I’m SO EXCITED so I’m going to share the opening because I possess zero patience :D 

I want to give a shout out to @the-dwarf-that-bakes for reading it through and encouraging me to KEEP GOING, and to @losttalongthewayy for their boundless enthusiasm and for editing my dumbass grammar. Also, a HUGE thank you to @rollyjogerjones for the lovely header!!! It’s beautiful and I might cry.

Storybrooke, 7 years ago

“There’s not a day will go by I won’t think of you.”

She could barely look at him before that, but she does now. Their eyes meet, and all Emma sees in Hook’s blue gaze is a strange sort of desperation that she feels echoed in her own soul.

She wants to give him something, now, in their final moment together.
