Summary: Emma is sick and tired, literally. As always, she perseveres by pushing through her bout of the flu because only Emma takes care of Emma. When Killian comes down with the same flu, how will he handle it? Is he a cut above the average ailing male, or will Killian manage the man flu the same way he does most things… with panache?
Thank you to my beta @xhookswenchx. I appreciate you knocking this out so quickly!!
Emma’s head was pounding, she felt as if it might pop like a balloon at any moment, and her eyes actually hurt. Sitting at her office desk with her eyes closed she softly rubbed her temples. Who messed with the goddamn heat, it’s freezing! She groaned aloud when she realized even her internal voice sounded whiny and sick. She didn’t dare verbalize any of her complaints, of course; she couldn’t have people thinking she couldn’t handle something as simple as the flu. This was the third day, and although she wasn’t running as high of a fever anymore, she still felt like shit. The past two days she’d gritted her way through work, not wanting to shirk her responsibilities. This morning she had decided enough was enough. She put on her favorite new blouse, a pair of ultra skinny jeans, and opted to leave her hair down, curling it. She was determined to at least look good if she couldn’t feel good.
“Emma, why don’t you go home and rest? Your father and newest deputy are more than capable of holding down the fort in your absence.” Killian had walked up behind her and was gently massaging the base of her skull.
It felt like heaven as Killian rubbed her aching neck. “Newest deputy, I like that,” she mumbled.
“I’ve heard he’s quite dashing, and rather well endowed,” he whispered into her ear.
Emma laughed then grabbed her head, “It hurts to laugh.”

Part One of my Vampire AU! This is endgame Pliroy, but does start out with some Otayuri. I’ve been enjoying working on this, and I like what I have so far, so I thought I’d share what I have before I go to bed. Let me know what you think!
Yuri opened his eyes slowly,
wincing at the dim light coming from beneath his curtain. No, not his curtain. Whose room was he in? Whose bed
was he in? He tried to sit up, but his
head spun and sent him falling back on the pillow.
“Fuck,” he groaned under his
breath. The door across the room from
him opened. Otabek smiled at him,
something small and just for him. He was
holding a tray with what looked like food.
Of course, how could he forget? He
was staying with Otabek. He hadn’t been
feeling well, and Otabek was taking care of him now.
“Good morning, Yura. How are you feeling?” Otabek asked, sitting
in the chair beside his bed. He set his
tray on his lap. Why wasn’t he staying
with his grandfather? Or Lilia and Yakov?
“A little better, I think,” Yuri
said. Why was he lying? Otabek wanted him to tell the truth. He should tell him that he forgot things this
morning. He should tell him that he felt
dizzy and couldn’t sit up by himself.
EMMA: Yea, sorry about that. My WIFE decided to pack my lunch today and
all I found was a plastic container of blended apple, kale, carrot juice and a
REGINA: It’s wholesome and
EMMA: It looked like sea monster
vomit in a cup.
SNOW: Guys, please. We’re in a
EMMA: What. You’re my mother.
SNOW: Right now I’m your
EMMA: You mean your
REGINA: (ignores current
conversation, turns to Emma) Lunch was
EMMA: I wouldn’t know. I didn’t eat it.
SNOW: Maybe we should proceed…
REGINA: What do you mean you didn’t
EMMA: I didn’t eat it!
SNOW: (waves to get their
REGINA: (crosses arms) Well, what DID you eat then?
SNOW: Principal trying to talk
EMMA: (defiantly pins Regina with
a stare) I went to Granny’s and had a
DOUBLE bacon, grilled onion cheeseburger and French fries with a chocolate
SNOW: (shakes head in hands) Oh geez.
REGINA: You did WHAT?
EMMA: You heard me.
SNOW: (points to self) Principal!
EMMA: (to her mom) SHHH!
REGINA: (to Snow at the same time)
Oh shut up!
They both stare at each other hard again while
Snow tilts her eyes heavenward and closes them while shaking her head.
REGINA: Do you know what those
things are doing to your body as we speak?
EMMA: I don’t know about you but
my body’s feeling pretty thankful.
REGINA: You think so? Let’s see how it feels when your ASS is
sleeping on the couch tonight.
EMMA: (scoffs) Are you serious? For eating a cheeseburger. Who are you?
SNOW: No… that would be me.
EMMA: (jokingly) You just said you were the principal.
There’s a knock at the door. The school janitor,
Leroy, pokes his head in.
LEROY: Snow, you called to have
some extra stuff thrown out?
SNOW: Yes, Leroy. Those bags by the wall.
Leroy nods to Regina and Emma but they only
crack a small smile alerting him to the tension in the room. He awkwardly shuffles towards the trash
knowing well what could happen between the Sheriff and the Mayor, even though
they’ve been married for years and were perfect for one another.
REGINA: (to Emma) Do you even care about your heart and
arteries? Because I do.
EMMA: Oh my God, Babe! Look at this body. I am in prime condition. (flexes arms)
I don’t mean to BRAG but look at these!
(holds her arm up to a passing Leroy)
LEROY: (puts garbage bag down and
feels Emma’s arm) Wow, those are some
serious guns you got there, sister!
(Looks up to find Regina glaring at him and Snow subtly waving for him
to leave while he can) Um…
SNOW: Thanks, Leroy. That’s it.
(waits a beat, looks at two cross-armed irritated women) Okay… Why don’t we just forget about this
whole thing and move on. What’s done is…
REGINA: (scowls at Snow) Don’t you have chalkboard erasers to BANG
SNOW: (tilts head back and sighs
at the ceiling)
EMMA: Babe, it’s not like I eat like
this all the time. And I think I’ve done pretty good with all the other stuff
you give me. I actually like flaxseed and goji berries now. (sees Regina soften
and puts a hand on her forearm) Heck! I’ve even gotten used to grilled cheese on
WHEAT bread! (looks into Regina’s eyes
meaningfully, smiles) But I draw the
line at “cat puke in a can”.
SNOW: (mumbles unheard) I don’t even think a cat would eat the stuff
Regina gives you.
REGINA: (pause, raises eye brow,
smirks) There was no “milkshake
chaser” was there.
EMMA: (smiles wider and nods
REGINA: (strokes Emma’s hand) And the grilled onions?
EMMA: It was a plain hamburger, no
cheese and with a side salad instead of fries.
(happy with Regina’s megawatt smile)
And NO onions. I WAS planning on
kissing you later. (wiggles eyebrows)
Both women have eyes only for each other
and ignore Snow’s twisted mouth as the moment seems inappropriately intimate
all of a sudden.
REGINA: Only later?
EMMA: Well… Maybe a lot sooner
REGINA: How about right now?
EMMA: How about we take this
someplace more private?
REGINA: Follow me then, Sheriff
EMMA: To the ends of the Earth,
babe. (opens door for Regina) So am I still sleeping on the couch?
REGINA: (as door closes behind
them) Lucky for you I happen to like
“your guns” wrapped around me in bed where they belong.
Snow is left with an empty blinking
expression at their vacated chairs.
SNOW: Well, Audrey and Sophie are
adjusting really well to school life.
They love kindergarten and play well with others. (pause, dismissive
wave at the chairs) I’ll just tell them everything
at Sunday dinner.

When I saw this lovely gif, I immediately thought it looked like a parent/teacher conference type thing and this scene took place in my head. This is set in The Twins of Storybrooke universe and I made Snow the principal. Who knows, by then she might be!
Summary: The town of Storybrooke is devoted to Christmas, so much so that they revile Mr. Gold for not participating in their celebration. Amid this tension, Belle French discovers that he is actually Jewish and he’s alone on Chanukah. Naturally, she can’t let that stand.
Author’s Notes: So, there is a lot of talk of Christmas fics right now and I am all for that, but this fandom needs a Chanukah fic. Here is my attempt to be released in eight parts- one each night. Happy Chanukah!
Storybrooke was an idyllic town, straight out of a Norman Rockwell illustration and there was perhaps no time that it fulfilled that image as much as Christmas.
The townspeople began decorating as soon as they cleared away their jack-o-lanterns. Every house was lit up, the town Christmas tree went up in front of City Hall and the carolers began practicing.
Except for one resident.
Mr. Gold owned nearly the whole town. He never decorated his shop or his house, the big pink Victorian sticking out like a sore thumb amongst the others plucked from vintage postcards.
And the town couldn’t forget it.
“Belle, sign this.”
The librarian looked up from her pancakes at the clipboard her friend, Ruby, was sticking in her face.
“What is it?”
“Just sign it.”
“I’m not going to just sign anything,” said Belle, taking a clipboard. “A petition?”
Leroy piped up from down the counter. “Yeah, we’re gonna get Gold to put up some lights already.”
“What?” Belle furrowed her brow as she read the paper. She shook her head and put the clipboard back down. “I’m not signing this.”
“What? Why not, Belle?,” asked Ruby.
“You can’t create a petition to make someone put up Christmas lights. That’s hardly in the spirit of the season,” she said as she resumed eating.
Summary: LeRoy overhears Kurt talking about his struggles with Blaine and remembers other times Kurt had been around his house. He resolves to give Kurt a heart to heart and make sure Kurt has someone to support him and set him right about relationships.
