Actually yes! You’ve come across a major bookworm. I’ve been reading CS fics non stop lately. And I prefer to read quality fics where Captain Swan is written well, and their interaction makes sense regarding these characters.
Firstly though I want to direct your attention to some awesome writers on tumblr. They write a lot one shots and short fics directly on their blogs that you simply can’t get enough of. It would be hard to list all the fics so I’ll just direct you to their blogs. There are a lot of great writers though I’m only going to name a few. Some write chapter fics as well but when you need a good short story to make your day I always find I can read their stories. (they are in no order in particular)
AU: Emma discovers a small, privately-run coffee shop in Storybrooke — in the end, it’s no longer about the cinnamon sprinkles or the mochas, but about a particular one-handed barista, and a boy with a storybook.
A collection of drabbles highlighting Emma and Killian’s struggle to navigate through 21st century dating. Drabbles will not necessarily be in chronological order. Ch. 6: a ‘morning after’ fic, Emma has to clear up a misunderstanding between her and Hook over the phrase ‘walk of shame’.
Captain Swan AU. Cora let’s the curse take Killian, and her action changes the course of events in Storybrooke, forever changing their lives. A lot will stay to canon to Seasons 1-3 so far with exceptions made to accommodate Killian being cursed to Storybrooke as well as original scenes with Killian and others. Yes, it’s been done before, but I wanted to write my own spin on it.
She’s the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, princess of the realm. He’s the nephew of King Triton, ruler of the sea. They were never supposed to know about each other, let alone meet. But they did and now they’re in deeper than either of them ever planned. Together, Emma and Killian will have to face what it means to be a princess and a merman with or without one another
AU. Professor Killian Jones, a mysterious Irish scholar, and Emma Nolan, a college sophomore from a sleepy little town in Maine, cross paths at Boston College. Neither of them could have imagined what would happen next. *** COMPLETE ***
AU set when Emma and Snow return home. Gold knows Cora is coming, and his plan to defeat her once and for all involves putting Emma under A sleeping curse…What will happen when Killian comes to town only to discover his swan is asleep- indefinitely?
AU; Hook delays the curse. 20 years later, the Enchanted Forest is falling into turmoil, but all Emma wants is chance to end the death threats and figure out why magic is suddenly manifesting inside of her. Opportunity arrives when she strikes a deal with Hook, but inevitable changes are coming and Emma begins to see that while the curse may be escapable, the final battle isn’t.
Henry wants to dress up as Captain Hook for Halloween, Emma is avoiding Hook, and Hook is chasing Emma…Mary-Margaret wants a Thanksgiving with everyone and do we mean EVERYONE and David is beginning to hate every holiday. Hook gives Henry relationship advice involving mistletoe around Christmas and will Regina and Neal find someone to share a New Year’s kiss with? CapSwan FIC!
Emma is a princess in the Enchanted Forest. Killian works in the kitchens. They are best friends and Emma is desperately trying to convince herself that’s all she feels towards him. Lieutenant Duckling (Young!Emma/Killian) AU.
“There’s no way I [kissed you] because I thought that…that you were…” She motioned toward him, the words like lead on her tongue. “That you were my…you and me…were…my…” Killian rolled his eyes. “True love, darling.” “Shh!” Emma snapped. Set after events of 2x11. KillianxEmma. Humor/drama/Romance.
As the Enchanted Forest teeters on the verge of war, the reluctant Princess Emma is devastated by the loss of her true love, kidnapped by a mercenary & his henchmen, rescued by a pirate, forced to marry a prince, & rescued once again by the very crew who took her. Foiling their plans & jumping into their story is Killian, Emma’s true love and a good friend to a dangerous pirate.
After breaking a curse cast by Rumplestiltskin, Princess Emma runs away from the palace in search of vengeance. Hiding her face under her cloak made of swan-feathers, she finds her way onto a pirate ship with a Captain that has a similar mission to her. Captain Swan.
One push, one mistake, and Emma found herself on the deck of Jolly Roger, only 300 years ago. And the only way for her to get back is to find her true love, which, at the moment, seems impossible. With Hook furious and grieving over Milah’s very recent death, Emma’s left to pick up the pieces of his broken heart, that is, if she wants to get home. Set after 3x06. Captain Swan
AU: The war against the ogres is heating up, and Princess Emma has been dispatched to meet with a powerful nobleman whose magic powers might help win the battle. But her journey is interrupted when she is abducted by pirate captain Killian Jones, who has vowed vengeance against the Evil Queen, who he believes is responsible for his brother’s death.
Captain Hook decides not to wait until the curse is broken to reach the land without magic, his early arrival to our world will change everything, because the handsome pirate will appear in Emma’s life earlier than expected, long before Emma gets to Storybrook. Captainswan. AU.
A Captain Swan story with a Black Sails twist. Princess Emma is on her way to her wedding when her ship is attacked by the Jolly Roger. Captured by ruthless pirates and miles from home, she is subject to the mercy of the handsome and dangerous Captain Hook. These aren’t the fairytale pirates you know. Will contain very mature themes. Dark!Hook/Princess Emma
Prompted from fyesemmaandhook on tumblr. —- Emma’s getting married in the morning to someone she’s never met — some prince from some rich, powerful kingdom on the other side of the continent — and so she needs to make tonight last. And the foreign pirate who’d shown up to rob her blind at her engagement ball will help her do just that. Captain Swan. Shamelessly, gleefully AU.
AU: Everyone wants Ruby and the new transfer student, Victor, is no exception. The problem is that she’s not allowed to date until her older sister, Emma Swan, dates, too. In an elaborate scheme to get the girl, Mary Margaret and Victor enlist the help of the only guy in school up for the challenge: Killian Jones. (Snowing, Frankenwolf, and hopefully a little Rumbelle at the end
Unlike the end of “Broken” where Emma and Mary Margaret fall through the Mad Hatter’s hat and end up next to Mulan and Aurora, Emma lands somewhere else entirely. She lands right next to a pirate ship being captained by the one and only Hook. This story will follow some plots of the show, but not all of them. Captain Swan.
…version of Emma and Hook’s journey to love. Starts after Hook stabs Gold & Emma knocks him out. Hook with a concussion, Emma taking care of him and starting to care for him. Partially follows canon (but without the neal love stuff) to adventures in Neverland.
Seventeen year old Emma Swan unwittingly and accidentally falls through a mysterious portal that lands her in the middle of the ocean, only to be saved by a young, dashing lieutenant, and to be brought aboard the Jewel of The Realm. Will she be able to find her home? And if she does… Will she still want to go? Lieutenant Duckling with eventual progression to Captain Swan.
When Emma abandoned Hook at the top of the beanstalk she had no idea just what path that decision might lead her down… straight to Neverland apparently. Never trust a Pirate Captain, especially when your survival might depend on it. Follows on from the Tallahassee episode 2x6. AU as of 2x8.
AU! Princess Emma and Lieutenant Killian are both to be engaged, but there’s a slight problem. They both hate each other. Two weeks on a ship with one another may be just the thing they need to get something to spark between them.
Fed up with the future her royal status holds for her, Princess Emma runs away and ends up in the port town of Tortuga. She grows up there, working as a barmaid with her friend Ruby, but a chance encounter with a charming pirate sets into motion events she never could’ve imagined and reminds her that she can’t run from who she is forever.
Emma really should have known better than to accept a gift from Captain Hook, especially a magical one. He really should have known better than to underestimate her. Captain Swan. Rated M for violence and later chapters.
The curse backfired when Regina cast it. It didn’t work, fully. The curse kept them in the E.F., while Emma was sent to the land without magic to grow up completely alone. The catch is when Emma turns 28, the Enchanted forest will be no more, unless they can get Emma back to the Enchanted Forest. They need the only man that has ever been to the land w/o magic. Capt. Hook.
Since returning from Neverland, Henry’s been looking for a way to keep occupied that presents minimal threats. He finds his answer in an enormous box of video cassettes from Neal’s place, and an old tv up in Emma’s room. Many of the tapes are the old Disney classics, and who better to snuggle up and watch them with than the characters themselves?
Dark!Hook AU: For twelve years the kingdom has been ruled by the ruthless King Killian I. For years no light has shined until the endangered Emma Swan falls into his life and when she does, she brings a storm of emotions tumbling back into his black heart. Intrigued by her unique effect on him, he takes her under his protection, as his mistress.
They say he’s the king of the street rats, that when you fall in with him, you’ll never go hungry again, that he has a harem of women from all over the world who will trek for miles and miles to share his bed. Emma doesn’t really know about that harem thing, but the “never go hungry again” bit is enough to catch her interest after (at least most of) a life on the street. CS AU.
AU Captain Swan. Based on the path of the Tarot’s Major Arcana. Every journey starts with a single step. Emma never left Killian up the beanstalk, instead, they went back to Storybrooke together. Now Emma’s finding herself increasingly drawn to the infuriating pirate captain, and a series of events that neither one of them could have predicted has been set into motion.
AU: The Curse never happens, Emma grows up in fairytale land, as a teenager she rebels and runs away, hiding on a pirate ship to get away. Takes place after Liam died so Killian is a newly self-proclaimed pirate and ship captain Lieutenant Duckling-esque A/N: Deviations from canon because, you know, it’s an Alternate Universe story - Rated M in later chapters
Emma wanted nothing more than to get home to her son. It was simple. Get the compass, ditch the pirate, find her happily ever after with Henry. But in a world with unwanted magic and a pirate who can’t keep out of her head, things are never as simple as they seem. When the magic of a bean goes wrong, will she learn to accept Hook’s help in order to get back to Henry? CS.
Captain Swan AU. Snow goes through the wardrobe with Emma. Cora sends Killian along with the curse, altering the events in Storybrooke as we know them. A lot of this story will stay true to the canon of the first three seasons, but with accommodations for new story lines, and lots of new original scenes. Reviews are magical. Enjoy.
AU: He’s the charming, out of control frontman of one of the most successful bands in the world. She’s a hard-working rising actress. Sometimes it’s hard to find out what’s real and what’s make-believe when fame’s in the game.
Emma likes to sleep with her window open. She never quite realized who she’d be inviting in. All things considered, however, Captain Hook showing up in her bedroom after midnight is hardly the worst of his offenses. Emma knows how to handle Hook. (AU post “Welcome to Storybrooke”. Unapologetically Captain Swan.)
Inspired by the song. AU: Princess Emma was raised by her birth parents, but a curse on her 16th birthday sends her to Neverland. There, she spends years running from the Lost Boys and Pan before meeting Captain Hook. Hook takes the Lost Girl into his protection, eventually helping her return to her realm, where King David rewards the pirate with a title.
hi there! i just joined the fandom and i was wondering if you could tell me your favorite multichapter cs fics? they can be completed or wip :) oh and i love your blog <3
Welcome, cupcake! Your wish is my command :) (I apologize for the delay I know you sent me this like a week ago, but I got distracted with Comic Con lol)
This is probably gonna be huge, because the writers on this fandom are incredibly talented (also because it’s author appreciation week so I’m not holding back) and I read a shit-ton of fics lol. But here we go.
Let us stretch the fesitval of captain-k-jones for as long as humanly possible! A little something for your birthday - and not a bit of angst in sight!! Thank you for being part of our network - it means a lot to know that we have our circle of friends whenever we need them.
Word Count: 2300ish
Rated: F for fluff and flirting
Based on this prompt:My stupid friends roped me into a mall scavenger hunt and you’re on the list” AU
Cross them off (Part ½)
“Okay, everyone, grab a list.” Ruby raised her voice to be heard over the crowd in the restaurant, as she handed colourful sheets of paper to all the women in their party. “The rules are simple. We hit the clubs and you collect the things on your lists. Photographic evidence preferred. And never let it be said I didn’t show you all a good time at this Bachelorette party!”
Already less than excited about the prospect of a night of high heels and thumping music, Emma Swan turned the purple paper over cautiously, flinching slightly at the title in its 50 point ridiculous font. “Bachelorette Bingo” it exclaimed, eliciting excited hand clapping from the bride-to-be, Mary Margaret, and a sigh of defeat from Emma. Her friends were comparing notes, giggling and laughing loudly but she was struggling to join in their excitement.
Especially when she cast her eyes over the list she had been given.
Someone with an accent
Someone who has been on a boat in the last month
A man in uniform
Someone who plays an instrument
A hottie…why not?
Someone who believes in true love…bride and groom NOT included
Something/someone that makes you laugh
A cheesy pick up line that has worked
Free space…something that catches your eye
“So, Ems,” Ruby said, draping an arm around Emma’s shoulders and grinning widely at her, “Ready to play my little game?”
Emma narrowed her eyes at her friend. “True love?” she asked, her voice dripping with sarcasm.
Ruby laughed. “Thought you’d like that one. I needed something to represent our beautiful bride…and there’s no truer love than those two.” Emma couldn’t disagree. Mary Margaret and her husband-to-be David Nolan were the most in love couple she had ever seen and it warmed even her hardened heart to see her friend so happy.
Still, true love was not for Emma Swan. She had learned the hard way about letting someone into her heart and it was not a trap she planned on falling in again.
“Just have a go, sweetie,” Ruby whispered, almost as if she had seen into Emma’s thoughts. “Let yourself go a bit and have a bit of fun. For Mary Margaret’s sake at least.”
Emma read over the list again and looked at Mary Margaret, who caught her eye and grinned, her eyes shining with champagne and excitement. It was contagious and Emma found herself smiling back just as widely.
“I’ll play,” she said to Ruby. “But don’t expect me to enjoy it.”
Ruby snorted. “Duly noted,” she said, “No fun for Emma Swan.”
