Two weeks ago I don’t think I knew more than 3 words to an Ariana Grande song. And I still don’t know more than 3 words to her songs, but I do know that she is a fucking incredible and brave human being who deserves all the love and support in the world.
Hey, y’all! I’ll be at Anime Expo in Los Angeles from July 1st to July 4th, table I-52 and I’ll be doing quick sketches in every book I sign! (When I run out of books, I’m totally out!) I’ll be sitting with known pal, Mad Rupert, the creator of Sakana! (She also drew those hilarious pictures in Huddle 2? You know the ones.)

What Emma and Hook talked about on their way back to Storybrooke (3x12)? Any headcanons?
This got long. Sorry.
I started writing a fic about this last year but never finished it. So yeah, I got headcanons. This is more than just their conversation, but bear with me.
They left NY in the morning (9/10am I’m guessing) and arrived in town late enough that it was dark and no one was out, so it looks like at least 9pm (probably much later, but whatever). I estimate on the short side of things that the trip took about nine hours, which is obviously a lot longer than six, which is the Google Maps estimated travel time between the locations, so I’m guessing they made multiple stops to eat. Twice fast food (at least), and maybe they have a sit-down lunch or something in Boston? Henry and Emma reminiscing about their favorite food joint (from fake memories on Henry’s part, real ones on Emma’s) and deciding to spend a little extra time to have a decent meal. (Also I’m assuming Emma drives SUPER slow. And maybe they hit some traffic. Caught behind construction work or a car accident or something.)
But anyway, given the roughly 9-hour trip, surely there had to be a little conversation. They likely couldn’t discuss real stuff since Henry was in the car, so maybe they talked in code, as they did throughout 3B when the kiddo was around. I think Henry would probably for the first hour try to engage Killian in conversation, asking tons of questions, as kids do, and Killian probably tried his best to dodge stuff he didn’t understand or didn’t know how to answer, maybe taking cues from Emma on whether he should say yes or no. I’m sure Emma would answer for him a lot.
“So what exactly do you do, Killian?”
“He’s… a performer, Henry.”
“Like a street performer?”
“Oh. That’s why you’re wearing the pirate stuff?”
“Yes, that’s why he’s dressed like a pirate.”
“Swan, I’m perfectly capable of speaking for myself.”
“Shush. Drink your coffee, H-… Killian.”
“The mermaid emblem is apropos.”
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
“A rubbish species for rubbish coffee.”
“What did mermaids ever do to you?”
