Hello hello! Day 5 of Swan Queen Week is already upon us, so here’s my entry for day I still owning but my ideas, and I’m still hoping you’ll enjoy reading my text!
Regina woke with a start.
She tried to catch her breath and immediately regretted it: it felt as if she
was trying to breathe through half a dozen cloths draped over her mouth, and
the effort made her ribs hurt. In a fit of coughing, she eventually managed to
roll to the side and ease the pain in her ribcage. She kept coughing for a few
more minutes, the air wheezing in and out of her parched throat feeling like
glass paper. When she had regained enough brain oxygenation to keep her head
from spinning too much, she looked up and glared at her surroundings as if they
had personally offended her.
The bedchamber was still as
impeccably tidy as when the queen had gone to sleep, and a few warm rays of
sunlight were shyly piercing through the heavy drapes. There was nothing in the
room to indicate what could have roused her from sleep, until Regina heard a
metallic noise behind her.
Regina turned around so
quickly that she almost fell from her bed, and came face to face with a sword.
Or, more precisely, a young woman holding a sword. Regina frowned an tried to
sit up more properly, in an attempt to look more menacing.
“Who are you? And what do
you think you’re doing in here? Also, please don’t point that thing at me.”
The other woman’s big green
eyes had been filled with surprise when Regina had turned around. Her
expression quickly changed, however, to one of defense at Regina’s snarl.
Still, she lowered the sword and placed it gently against the bed frame.
“I’m Princess Emma of the
White Kingdom. And you’re the Evil Queen.”
“I’m perfectly aware of who
I am, thank you very much” Regina’s voice was thick with disdain and
dehydration. She searched the young woman’s face for a few minutes, grimacing
when she got the confirmation of what she was thinking. “You’re that idiot Snow
The princess narrowed her
eyebrows as she nodded. “You must be incredibly bitter for these to be the
first words you say after being asleep for over 20 years.”
“Well, excuse me if my
conversation skills are not entirely up to your standards, Princess. I wasn’t exactly expecting to be woken up and have to
make small talk with you.” Regina’s voice was still hoarse from the lack of
water, and she couldn’t help the next coughing fit that escaped her. Emma
jumped up from her seat to hand her a flask, which Regina eyes suspiciously.
“It’s water. Drink it,
you’ll feel better.” Upon seeing Regina refuse the drink, Emma shook her head
impatiently. “Don’t be stupid. If I’d wanted to kill you, I would’ve done it
long ago. Now drink the damned water so you can stop coughing.”
Regina took a gulp and,
relieved that she wasn’t rolling over in agony, took a few more sips until the
cough had sustained.
“What do you mean, you would
have killed me long ago?” Regina’s curiosity took her out of her angry staring
at the intruder.
“I, uh… I’ve been coming
here for the past couple years, every once in a while, to check on you.” The
princess at least had the decency to look embarrassed.
“To check on me?” To say
Regina was surprised was an euphemism. Never since her father’s death and her
subsequent failure at casting the curse had anyone ever bothered to check on
“There was talk about some
other curse, a couple years ago, so I came to see if perhaps you’d woken up.
You were still deep in sleep, so I knew it wasn’t you, but you looked so
helpless I started thinking – what if someone came in and killed you in your
sleep? I’ve been coming back ever since to make sure it wouldn’t happen.”
“Why would anyone want to
make sure I didn’t get killed, least of all you?” None of what the princess
made any sense to Regina. If her curse had worked, the young woman and her
parents would be cursed to an eternal life of unhappiness, so why would she
feel concerned in the slightest about her safety?
As if she was reading her
thoughts, the princess answered “It probably doesn’t make much sense to you,
but… I grew up hearing all about you. About how the Evil Queen had tried to
curse us all but – luckily for us – failed and was condemned to a life of exile,
where she decided to curse herself rather than remain unhappy and alone. I used
to ask my mother about you, about where you were from and how you’d become the
Evil Queen. I think I was terrified, at first, that there was no real
explanation as to why someone suddenly turned evil, and that I was scared I
could accidentally turn evil too… I was a child!” she tried to defend herself
when Regina smirked. “Anyway, my mother finally gave in before my relentless
questions and told me all she knew about you: how the two of you met, how your
mother was, how my mother betrayed your trust and how you were never happy
after your boyfriend died… As I grew up, I eventually made sense of all of it,
and I understood that your pain and bitterness at other people’s happiness made
you what we call the Evil Queen, and I ended up feeling sorry for you. So when
there was word of this new curse, I used it as an excuse to find out exactly
where your castle was, and I came to see you. And then I…” Emma stopped her
rant and suddenly blushed deeply. She was breathless and didn’t dare look at
Regina in the eye anymore.
Regina was left open-mouthed
by all the princess had said. Finally, someone had seen her for who she was. In
that moment it didn’t matter that this someone was her archenemy’s daughter
that she’d fantasized about killing when she was just an infant; someone
finally saw her as a person rather than this one dark, evil and dangerous
entity. She looked down at her hands and noticed Emma’s hand was just inches
away from hers. Without fully registering what she was doing, Regina placed her
hand atop Emma’s, causing the young woman to look up at her.
“You’ll think I’m insane,
but… I kept coming back to watch you sleep. You looked so peaceful, unlike in
any other portrait of you I’d ever seen. I would stay here, by your bed, for
hours and wonder how someone could be driven to such despair that she’d try to
pretty much literally set fire to her own kingdom, terrorize her people and
then curse herself for all of eternity when she failed. I also looked through
your things – I’m sorry. I saw the last books you’d read, and I found your
riding journal. The more things I found out about who you really were, the less
I could hate you. And I started fearing those who hate you, for what they could
do to you while you were so vulnerable. Regina – can I call you Regina?” Regina
nodded quickly, urging Emma to go on. “As I watched over you, I think I started
falling in love with you.”
It was like lightning had
just struck Regina. This couldn’t be happening. No one except Daniel and her
father had ever loved her. There must have been something so utterly unlovable
about her that all who loved her ended up dead and with their heart crushed.
And yet here she was, this young woman with her kind smile and thoughtful eyes,
telling her she’d fallen in love with her as she was asleep and gently rubbing
circles on the back of her hand. Regina couldn’t find her voice anymore, so she
just listened as Emma spoke. Emma spoke of how she sometimes read some of the
books to Regina, or how she would update her about the royal stables even
though she herself hated horses. She went on to fill Regina in on what had been
happening in the kingdom, and Regina was surprised to discover a smart and
funny woman, nothing like her dimwitted father and unbearably optimistic
mother. Emma kept talking for what felt like hours, until they reached the
point in her story where she was animatedly explaining exactly how Regina had
“… and I took your hand in
mine, and I kissed your hand to pay my respects, and then – you moved!”
For the second time that
day, Regina felt as if she’d been struck by lightning.
“You… you kissed me?”
Emma’s smile faded,
surprised at Regina’s reaction. “I’m sorry, it was – it was just your hand! I
never would’ve – not while you were asleep! I thought –”
“No no, Emma, I’m not mad,
it’s just… You kissed me, and I woke
up?” Regina’s voice was on the edge of breaking, and she repeated that last
sentence a couple times until recognition spread across Emma’s features.
“Ooooohh! Do you think –
True Love’s Kiss?”
“I don’t know!” Regina was
panicking now. She wasn’t ready nor prepared for all of this. But as she saw
the blissful smile Emma was now sporting, she thought maybe, just maybe, things
would be okay now.
Luke Alvez Headcanons, bath time with your infant son/daughter:
This would be Luke’s favourite thing ever.
He seriously couldn’t understand how anyone could complain about the hassle of bathing toddlers.
He had an entire song collection on his phone dedicated solely to his son/daughter’s favourite bath time songs.
His singing would be awful, but it would still make you smile when you heard him wailing upstairs. The pure joy he got out of bath time was extremely endearing.
He would constantly be buying new bath toys for him/her, resulting in there being little room for his actual toddler in the large tub. You would finally introduce a toy schedule to stop the overcrowding issue.
His favourite thing to do was to splash them as he clapped along to the cheery music blasting out of his phone.
This would result in more water being on the floor than in the actual bath tub.
Roxy would sometimes join in on bath time, barking excitedly as she got drenched by Luke’s splashing.
Honestly, Luke behaved more like a child than his own son/daughter when it came to bath time.
In fact, he was so enthusiastic about it, the second he got home he would be pestering you about whether it was bath time yet.
His favourite thing was when you had time to join them, grinning at you as you perched on the side of the bath laughing at his antics.
He would definitely be one of those parents with an entire album on their phone devoted to just photos of his son/daughter in the bath. He just found it adorable and it always lifted his spirits after a difficult case to just glance at the happiness on his/her little face.
He would be genuinely gutted when he couldn’t make it home for bath time.
The sadness in his eyes would be almost enough for you to want to wake your son/daughter up for another bath.
But, you couldn’t do that. So, you would just press a kiss onto his lips and tell him that there was always tomorrow.
If he was away on cases, you would end up facetiming him during bath time because the goofy smile on his face as he watched his son/daughter splashing in the bath was adorable.
Luke would take great pride in his ability to both care for and entertain his son/daughter during bath time.
He would love listening to his/her little laugh as they built him a ‘bubble beard’.
Afterwards, he would dry him/her off (ensuring that he vigorously ruffled his/her hair with the towel the way they loved – the way that made you want to cry when you saw the state of their hair) and put them to bed.
He would super happy and smug with himself as his son/daughter slept peacefully in his/her bedroom.
But, his smile would be wiped off his face as you came in unamused at the flooding the bathroom had taken due to all his splashing.

Request: For a jimin scenario you could do something like, maybe you come home from shopping to see your husband jimin and either, your infant child is a mess while jimin is trying to clean them up before you got home or like him playing a silly game with his 5-6 year old son or daughter!

THE LITERAL CHEESIEST FLUFF + JIMIN BEING A DAD EVER.
Citizens of Luna, I ask that you stop what you’re doing to listen to this message. My name is Selene Blackburn. I am the daughter of the late Queen Channary, niece to Princess Levana, and the rightful heir to Luna’s throne. You were told that I died thirteen years ago in a nursery fire, but the truth is that my aunt, Levana, did try to kill me, but I was rescued and taken to Earth. There, I have been raised and protected in preparation for the time when I would return to Luna and reclaim my birthright.
In my absence, Levana has enslaved you. She takes your sons and turns them into monsters. She takes your shell infants and slaughters them. She lets you go hungry, while the people in Artemisia gorge themselves on rich foods and delicacies. But Levana’s rule is coming to an end. I have returned and I am here to take back what’s mine.
Soon, Levana is going to marry Emperor Kaito of Earth and be crowned the empress of the Eastern Commonwealth, an honor that could not be given to anyone less deserving. I refuse to allow Levana to extend her tyranny. I will not stand aside while my aunt enslaves and abuses my people here on Luna, and wages a war across Earth. Which is why, before an Earthen crown can be placed on Levana’s head, I will bring an army to the gates of Artemisia.
I ask that you, citizens of Luna, be that army. You have the power to fight against Levana and the people that oppress you. Beginning now, tonight, I urge you to join me in rebelling against this regime. No longer will we obey her curfews or forgo our rights to meet and talk and be heard. No longer will we give up our children to become her disposable guards and soldiers. No longer will we slave away growing food and raising wildlife, only to see it shipped off to Artemisia while our children starve around us. No longer will we build weapons for Levana’s war. Instead, we will take them for ourselves, for our war.
Become my army. Stand up and reclaim your homes from the guards who abuse and terrorize you. Send a message to Levana that you will no longer be controlled by fear and manipulation. And upon the commencement of the royal coronation, I ask that all able-bodied citizens join me in a march against Artemisia and the queen’s palace. Together we will guarantee a better future for Luna. A future without oppression. A future in which any Lunar, no matter the sector they live in or the family they were born to, can achieve their ambitions and live without fear of unjust persecution or a lifetime of slavery.
I understand that I am asking you to risk your lives. Levana’s thaumaturges are powerful, her guards are skilled, her soldiers are brutal. But if we join together, we can be invincible. They can’t control us all. With the people united into one army, we will surround the capital city and overthrow the imposter who sits on my throne. Help me. Fight for me. And I will be the first ruler in the history of Luna who will also fight for you.
He sat on a park bench in town, holding a small infant in his arms as he bottle fed her, it had been only a little while since his wife had passed away from complications during childbirth, thus making their daughter his responsibility, he would protect her even if it killed him if needed.
“You look a lot like your Mother had.” He said with a soft but sad looking smile, he still couldn’t believe that she was actually gone so he would be mourning for awhile, she was wonderful, would have been a wonderful mother but died as she was going to become one.
Camila stood over her son’s crib, not knowing where Ashton was at the moment but not concerned at all. She was just content leaning on the crib bars and watching him sleep. Camila was so happy ever since Ashton confirmed to her that he did, indeed, love her, something that had been getting at her for weeks after Thomas was born. She carefully picked her son up from the crib, walking over to the rocking chair that Ashton and Luke had put in the nursery, right next to Thomas’ crib. “Ah, my baby boy.” She looked down at the sleeping infant as she sat in the rocking chair, and smiled. “God, I wish I could give you a little sister right now, I would kill for more of you.” She giggled, nudging her nose against his. “Give your daddy a daughter.” She nodded. “And you a sister, how nice would that be?”

It’s our birthday! Also a pro tip to anybody contemplating having identical twins, for Christ’s sake LABEL ALL OF YOUR PICTURES even if you at the time are like, How could I ever mix up my babies, I will always look at this picture of them as small, unformed lumps and be able to tell them apart. Because thirty-six years later one of them will say to you, mom, which is me in that picture and you will have to look her straight in the eye and say, Honey I have no flipping clue. So you know, maybe avoid that.
Going by the suspicious squint of the lump on the left and the aggressiveness of the lump on the right, I’m pretty sure I’m the lump on the left, though. Usually if one lump is angry it’s Amy and if one lump is hanging back like, I know u got this bro, it’s me. Amy liked new things, I liked being sure if something was or was not going to kill me.
Anyway, thirty six years ago today we were born and I almost died: they lost my heartbeat and Mom was rushed to surgery. I came out quiet, but still here, Amy came out as mad as a nest of hornets. Apparently my grandparents spent the entire time their daughter was in surgery wondering if she would have one infant or two coming up with this joke:
Grandma: Lorraine! I know what you should name your girls! Mom: *clutches infants thankfully* What? Grandpa: GEORGETTE AND MARTHA.
(We were born on George Washington’s birthday, for non-Americans in the audience.)
Mom: HOW COULD YOU.
Actually we were supposed to be named after Mom’s two best childhood friends – Amy and Jean – and with two names our parents liked – Meghan and Suzanne – but after the drugs wore off Mom realized that Amy Suzanne K was not a great idea, so I have the names she liked and Amy is named after her best friends. Ten years later she remarried and desperately tried to get us to take his last name (Amy did, I did not, because Amy is louder but I am stubborner) and realized she’d almost had a child with the initials of, wait for it, ASS.
I was trying to figure out why I’m always like IT’S OUR BIRTHDAY. HEY. IT’S MY BIRTHDAY. WE’RE HAVING OUR BIRTHDAY– and not to go maudlin on you guys or whatever, but really, what we celebrate today is that we’re still alive, not that we were born. From losing my heartbeat, to Amy’s epilepsy, to that dark old time in my twenties when the only thing standing between me and the final quietness was the knowledge that there was unequivocally one person in this world who would be worse off without me, and would probably follow within a week to punch me repeatedly in the face, we’ve kept hanging on.
So happy birthday to us! Go eat something you like. Drink a glass of water. Do something you like, and if that voice in the back of your head wants to know why you think you deserve it, tell it that Meg is having her birthday and that’s her present, you doing something good for yourself.
