MATURE. [ONESHOT]. College best friends AU. Killian and Emma go to their favorite bar one night after class to blow off steam.
Why I love this: Holy hell Batman, someone pour a bucket of icy water on my head. The steam and sexual tension is off the roof and so on-point you just want to knock their heads together and yell at them to “just kiss already”. And then some. Yeah, way more than kissing.
T. [4146 words; ONESHOT]. Emma and Killian are new writing recruits for the TV show Heroes & Villains and become close when they work on a script together
Why I love this: The dialogue is so perfect and made me laugh at loud so many times I couldn’t keep track. I love all the interactions in this fic, not just the ones between Emma and Killian (though, ofc, those are my absolute faves). And the ending was perfect. Such a fun premise and great execution.
G. [ ONESHOT]. Henry’s struggling with his job as the Author, and Hook offers to help.
Why I love this: Although Emma isn’t exactly present, you can still feel her in Killian and Henry’s interactions and that makes this possible (plausible) divergence truly painful. And I love seeing them support each other and Killian share a piece of his past with Henry.
T. [2998 words; ONESHOT]. Killian uses a new set of skills gifted to him by the Author’s AU to fashion a present….of sorts.
Why I love this: An interesting headcanon that’s developed so well that I kind of wish this is what happened in show. The way everyone supports each other throughout this really tugged at my heart and the moments of their weakness, Killian’s especially, hit me hard.
words; ONESHOT]. She called him Pennsylvania for the Pirates hat he always wore. He called her Boston because he claimed that Massachusetts was too much of a mouthful. It’s their thing. It’s comfortable.
Why I love this: I really need to come up with other descriptors for fics besides “cute” and “adorable”, but oh my goodness this fic was so sweet I think I lost teeth. Their banter and dynamic is so well-written and it’s hard not to smile while reading this fic. I also love the background relationships - Emma and Ingrid’s, for one - in this fic.
1693, Massachusetts Bay Colony (A Salem-esque AU)
Why I love this: This fic is a definitely historical, The Crucible slash Scarlet Letter esque piece. I didn’t really care for The Crucible or The Scarlet Letter, but this fic was honestly enjoyable. Killian’s dialouge to Emma is so, so in character and lovely. Emma’s walls - which definitely have a reason for being there, given the circumstances - also mirror canon in the way that she lets them down for him.
words; ONESHOT]. Killian Jones could bake pies and wake the dead. Emma Swan was a down on her luck P.I. with a penchant for knitting. A CS/Pushing Daisies AU.
Why I love this: I realize admitting this is like committing sacrilege but…I have never seen Pushing Daisies? I will fix this one day, I swear! I think that goes to prove, though, that even if you haven’t this fic is enjoyable. It explains the universe really well and, of course, Emma and Killian’s relationship in this is really well-written. I love the pacing and style of this fic, too.
M. [DRABBLE]. It happens to him when he’s been alive for nigh on three hundred years. He’s lost his love and the only semblance of family he had ever had, since his father had left him aboard that ship all those years ago.
Why I love this: A very (realistic would sound hilarious when said about a demons au) plausible look at how they could become one of the soulless and god the ending, the hopefulness and the pain is just !!!! everything to me. (Plus the beautiful graphics)
G. [DRABBLE]. She had royal blood, a fact she couldn’t deny, no matter how hard she tried.
WARNINGS/KINKS/TRIGGERS (IF ANY): mention of terminal illness/character death
Why I love this: This is so bittersweet that it left my nose a little itchy. It has everything: healthy Captain Duckling, flawless writing for Emma’s relationship with her parents, and bonus Captain Snowing moment. An adorable little drabble that deserves more notes.
So I’ve pretty much been on this site for about 6 years now and I’ve never actually done a follow forever, but after this year where I’ve spoken to so many of you and have - somehow - been tagged in a few recently, I feel like I should return the favour! So here are a few of my favourite blogs. I’ve probably missed some of you out but just know if I do follow you, you’re amazing and make this site worthwhile, and if we’re mutuals I love you.
Bolded urls are my ultimate babes who I’ve had the pleasure of talking to and becoming friends with,
Italicised urls are my lovelies who have stuck with me through the fandoms, and although we may not always talk, we’ve been silently appreciating eachother’s posts for years and you’re the best:
The facts are these: Robb Stark bakes pies and wakes the dead. It is a gift with a few simple rules - first touch, life. Second touch, dead again - forever. And if Robb keeps a dead thing alive for more than a minute, something else has to die in its place.
Everything we do is a choice: oatmeal or cereal, highway or side street, kiss her or keep her. We make choices and we live with the consequences. If someone gets hurt along the way we ask for forgiveness. It’s the best anyone can do.
Hi! I'm not sure if you're taking prompts but if you are, would you consider one where Killian is a small time baker who seduces her with his amazing pies and bear claws (and also mostly cause she can't bake or cook for shit so she's really also secretly impressed by him)? Your baking pictures are a wonderful inspiration :)
Title:Pie and Secrets
Summary: Killian Jones could bake pies and wake the dead. Emma Swan was a down on her luck P.I. with a penchant for knitting. A CS/Pushing Daisies AU.
Note: Not exactly what the prompt asked for, but I couldn’t resist. This is the closest I will ever come to writing Ned/Emerson Cod. ForCS AU Week - day 5 Crossover AU.
Killian Jones was the down on his luck proprietor of The Pie Hole who was learning, much to his chagrin, that if one’s establishment served nothing but pie, ice cream, and coffee, it was hard to keep one’s business afloat.
Killian knew that he could only do two things with any degree of excellence: he could bake pies, and wake the dead.
