Me when I remember that Colin Arthur Geoffrey O'Donoghue is now the father of a baby girl, who he will love and cherish, and raise into a beautiful young woman, and be an overprotective dad when she starts dating, and be the cutest father ever bc she already has this man wrapped around her finger:
I don't know why anyone would try to make a case out of Colins speculative answer. If Milah hadn't died when she did, of course they'd have continued on together. They also would have died at least a century and a half before Emma was even conceived. This was in no way Colin implying Hook would be with Milah instead of Emma, or prioritizing Millians love over Captain Swans. Hook would have died before he and Emma could even meet.
Like, noah fence guys but Milah is and forever will be an important part of Killian’s story and did and will forever have a huge impact on him as a character and no amount of misogynistic hate against her will ever change that
Also we had all of Colin’s Saturday solo panel for him to gush over Captain Swan (which he did!) (homeboy delivered!) so it was nice for the Rachel/Colin panel not to focus on CS but on a part of Killian’s story that is often erased in fandom because people just can’t handle the fact that you can fall in love more than once and can care about more than one person romantically
A Jones Brothers tale about the intervening years between their sale into servitude and where we saw them next in The Brothers Jones, mostly Killian Jones character speculation and development. This will contain very dark themes in later chapters.
My Comments: Yes, please! This is a flashback story dealing with Killian’s childhood mis-adventures in servitude, so please keep that in mind when deciding whether to read this tale or not. Killian’s childhood after being sold into slavery can be assumed to be a pretty unpleasant place, so if physical and emotional abuse of children (both by adults and other children) upsets you, please steer clear! Otherwise, there is some lovely flashback angst and whump in this story - perfect for fueling your own angsty headcanons ;)
Please remember to like/bookmark/reblog the author’s story if you enjoy it!
When we met it was just one thing that mattered to me: getting my revenge. And you did something that no one else ever could: you showed me that a heart full of love is the most precious treasure of all. And one that I don't intend to lose. They say that a captain's heart belongs to his ship. And with this ring, it now belongs to you.
Killian. I spent so much of my life on my own. And then Henry found me and brought me to Storybrooke and helped me find the rest of my family. But just because you learn that you come from true love doesn’t mean you believe that you will ever find it. But thanks to you, now I have.
