Written for CS AU Week Day 3 which is
CS in Another Realm.
Now, I’ve never been to New York and Killian I bet had a hell of a time
navigating it so I figure to him (and to
me) it would classify as an entirely different realm. So.
May I present to you, CS in New York!
This is set after the Snow Queen’s
defeat and the Frozen Gang’s return to Arendelle. In this AU, Gold never took
Killian’s heart and this is their fifth date within that blissful six weeks
before the QOD arrived.
Title taken from the Maroon 5 song,

The Snow Queen had been defeated thanks
to her and Elsa’s combined magic. Cheers and celebrations were abundant in
Storybrooke that night and very well into the following day. Emma couldn’t turn
a corner without a citizen either congratulating her, patting her on the back
or waving at her during the subsequent week and while it was great at first – a
tight-knit community never something she was accustomed to growing up – it
became quite tiring after a while. People skills weren’t exactly her strong
suit and having to greet so many people as she walked down Main Street had,
inevitably, gotten to her nerves.
Her mother noticed, of course, and
suggested she take a night out for herself. While Emma would usually reject the
notion, a night off sounded oh so
appealing after the week she had had. Emma would also usually bask in some
solitude after spending day and night with her parents and some days with her
son in their cramped apartment but there’s one person Emma hasn’t had the
opportunity to spend much time with despite the festivities and so she opted to
take him with her on her night off.
