my personal favourite is the awkward smile

It was a gift from Mary Margaret. A Christmas photoshoot for the two of them. Half an engagement gift, half a Christmas gift.

“It would be nice to have some good pictures of us to hang on the walls,” Emma said, after explaining to him everything involved with a photoshoot. Awkward posing and all.  

“Aye, I would like to have one on my person, too,” he smiled at her, leaning in for a kiss.


“Why do I get the elf hat?!”

“With your ears, come on, you don’t even need the sewed-on fake ones!”

“Is that why there are pieces of thread dangling from this monstrosity?”

Swan was right; it felt awkward and unnatural at first, but they were able to ease into it. Their favourite photo by far was the one of them carrying a prop tree, even if they had asinine hats on. Killian had tripped. Emma made some stupid quip about him not having his land legs, and the way they looked at each other in that one silly moment made it all worth while.

Merry Christmas @elizabeth-madles​ !! It was fun being your CS Secret Santa! I’m glad you don’t mind the early posting, I’m being sent on missions for the next two days as I write lol I hope you enjoy this little fluffy Christmas nonsense :D

Also shout out to @seethelovelyintheworld and @jenmmorrisons for looking the picture over for me :)

Eyyy, I love things like this!

  1. I really like my writing style, especially when I get to be humorous
  2. Going off #1, I like my sense of humor
  3. I like that I’m generally a lighthearted and positive person even though I’ve been dealing with anxiety and depression for most of my life
  4. I like that I can do a variety of voices and accents (which are really fun to do for people when I first meet them)
  5. I like my smile (I used to think it was kinda awkward, but now it just feels goofy, and I like that)
