CS JJ Day 29: Hearth
Summary: In which Emma is always cold, and Killian is always warm.
Warnings: Smut, angst
Notes: Much love and gratitude to the organizers at @csjanuaryjoy! Inspired by a prompt from @seethelovelyintheworld, who requested a fic where Emma is cold and Killian is warm, and by the beautiful sketch she drew, which you may find below. Also tagging @icecubelotr44.
It’s only when she’s taken everything out of the satchel twice – packing it carefully back in after the first, and tearing it right back out – that Emma allows herself to pout. She treats Neverland like a place of action. Whenever she’s still, it’s a place of mourning, eternal youth and sorrows, and she can’t hardly stand it. Can’t hardly sleep either. There are sounds echoing through the forest – grating, unnatural noises that belong in the winding, industrial alleys of poorly kept city blocks.
That, and she’s sure she’s never been this cold in her life. So she searches for the sweater she’d brought along, with no luck.
