Note: In honor of Killian Jones being a canon father, I gave you Daddy!Killian goodness. Granted, this series is now officially a canon divergence, but frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn because Season Seven is now officially kinda a hot mess, and I’m ignoring it in favor of my personal headcanons and @peglegsjones‘s headcanons. Those are the only realities I’m kinda accepting right now because I seriously hated the Wish Realm arc. Anyway, I haven’t forgotten about my other unfinished works, but this one really grabbed me. I was inspired by a little girl crying on the tube because she lost her toy. As always, @welllpthisishappening is my fic life partner and light of my life and therefore this is kinda dedicated to her. Summary: It’s normal for small children to get attached to a toy or a blanket. Killian thinks his children are a little too attached to theirs, especially his daughter who takes her stuffed doggie everywhere. Rating: T Word Count: 5,300+
In a convoluted way, Killian blamed Dave for this. Because really, if Dave hadn’t bought the blasted teddy bear for Harrison’s first birthday then he probably wouldn’t have to deal with his children and their obsession with their “specials.“
Yes, his children had “specials”; objects that they wrapped themselves around and refused to let go of whether it be to go out for a family dinner at Granny’s or to attend a wedding. Both Emma and Snow had assured them that “specials” were quite normal but it still sometimes worried him.
Ever since Harrison had laid eyes on that bear, he had formed an attachment to it; refusing to sleep without it. It had led to many a phone call on date night where Dave or Snow would tell them that they had forgotten Harrison’s beloved bear and had stopped over the house to find it to no avail. (And naturally Killian would find the blasted thing under Harrison’s toddler bed not even five seconds after looking.) The stuffed menace even had a name, a creative label that only a two-year old could come with - Ducky Cookie. (Killian was still trying to figure out how Harrison had come up with that beauty.)
While Harrison was enamored with Ducky Cookie, Wes had Blankie. Like his brother, he had received a teddy bear from his grandfather but he set it aside to cuddle up with a fuzzy blue blanket covered in anchors that Emma had bought him off the discount rack at the local children’s store. Wes didn’t seem to care that the bloody thing had only cost four dollars; he only cared that his parents swaddled him in it at every waking moment.
This, of course, led to Beth, who was the most attached to her “special”, which was a stuffed dog which had an even more bizarre name than Ducky Cookie or Blankie. Beth’s little companion was named Money. Why the dog was named Money, Killian couldn’t quite say but Emma blamed him for it. Regardless of its chosen moniker, Money was a pain in Killian’s ass. Where Harrison and Wes were a bit more reasonable about leaving their beloved items behind, Beth brought Money everywhere and whenever Emma or Killian suggested that they leave the dog behind, she would pitch a Hurricane Elizabeth worthy tantrum.
Killian’s current predicament only highlighted this.
This will be full of unpopular opinions. I don’t expect you to agree with them or like them - I do expect you to respect them, though.
The whole episode felt like a set-up, moving the players where the story needed them to be for the finale. It was necessary for the storytelling but I don’t expect to re-watch much of this ep in the future.
You were cuddling with Dan. You were on the edge of sleep. You felt your thoughts go fuzzy and your muscles relax. Happily you snuggled into Dan hoping to fall asleep.
“Y/n,” Dan mumbled. He was so awake, why was he so awake. You hummed in answer.
“Babe I’m bored,” he whined kissing your temple.
“Then do something,” you murmured feeling your eyes shut again.
“But I want to cuddle too,” he complained as if his dilemma was one of epic proportions.
“Here!” I said a bit too harshly thrusting a pen into his hands. He looked at it with confusion.
“Draw on my arm,” you ordered draping your arm over his lap and you snuggled back into his shoulder.
“Are you sure?” He asked but you could here minor notes of excitement in his voice.
“Yes 100%,” you replied closing your tired eyes. You slept for maybe forty-five minutes. When you woke Dan was still beside you examining your arm thoughtfully. You looked down.
“Dan!” You gasped. Doodles covered your arm from your wrist to your elbow. Small stars, dragons, hearts, planets, flowers, and lightning bolts peppered your arm. A small anime version of you and him was on the middle of your forearm. On your wrist was some quote that had apparently been said by Kanye west which you rolled your eyes at. With the spaces left he’d written the word love in multiple languages and fonts.
“I’ll wash it off, I’ll wash it off I swear!” He said looking at your worriedly. His high pitched promised brought you back to the real world.
“Dan no, I love it!” You told him in a dreamy voice.
“You do?” He asked with a sheepish grin.
“It’s so lovely. I didn’t know you could draw this well,” you complimented as you ran your finger over the pen drawings.
“I can’t, I’m shit,” he laughed. You sat up and kissed him gently to quiet him.
“Well I love it,” you smiled happily down at your arm. “It’s beautiful,” you told him and gave him another quick kiss. He was blushing and looked a bit dazed from all the kisses.
A/N: I absolutely love this story (it’s my guilty pleasure story, since I live for Shalaska and IT IS BIADORE WEDDING FOR CHRIST SAKES) and I already have the Honeymoon chapter to go. But like I said before, this is supposed to be Roy and Danny’s life together after RPDR, and even though in ‘What Goes Bump In the Night’ they are already married and they already have a child, this is before the wedding day. I hope you like it as much as I did! Xx Sadie
I woke up really sad because of babygate and idk what to do :(
aw, love. i’m sorry ): i understand that sometimes, you just feel kind of down about things and that’s okay to feel that way. you care a lot about the boys, and that’s where that comes from, and that’s okay. but, know that they’re going to be alright, yeah? even if we don’t know what’s going on or what’s going to happen, these boys have gone through a hell of a lot through the past five years. they have jumped through tons of hoops and gone through so many obstacles. while i wish they wouldn’t have had to experience any of that, i guarantee it’s made them very strong individuals. i also think that they’ve got a lot more power than they did back then. they may be not in total control just yet, but they’re getting there. i fully trust that they know what they’re doing. like, louis with tamara. that didn’t make sense to us at the time, but in hindsight, that was a brilliant move by him. louis knows what he’s doing. he knows that his fans love and appreciate him, and know he is. he’s got a beautiful family that would do anything for him. he’s got wonderful friends to support, and he’s got an amazing support system right there. he’s going to be alright, they’re going to be alright, no matter what. <3 so, you just take care of you because that is what is most important. he’ll take care of him, and he’s got lots of people there to help him and support him, and he’s got a love of epic proportions right there next to him.
