CS Pillow Talk - in which Killian asks Emma about his wish realm counter part
Here is my first attempt at a pillow talk fic for Captain Swan. I don’t know if many of these have been written since the original post, but I really liked the idea by @captainjayharkness from this post, for quiet talks between Emma and Killian as they share their bed. Unbeta’d because I just wanted to post this thing, all mistakes are mine. Rated M, but just barely, 2k words.
They lay there in bed, a warm, comforting ambiance surrounding them in their sated state. It was late into the evening and the only light present was the moonlight shining through their window, illuminating them in pale shades. Facing each other, they each wore a silly smile, stupidly happy over an uninterrupted moment to partake in each other. Killian’s expression became pensive as he continued to stare into his true love’s eyes.
“What is it, Mr. Jones? I can read you too, you know? Something is stirring in that head of yours,” Emma told him, then took his right hand in her left and laced their fingers before bringing their joined hands to her heart.
“Well, I was just…” he trailed off, unsure where to start. He didn’t want her to think he was being ridiculous.
She unlaced their fingers and put his hand on her bare chest, at her heart, then brought her hand to his face to caress his scruffy cheek. “Anything, Killian, you can say anything to me.”
He chuckled at her ability to put him at ease with such simple words. “Okay. Remember when we traveled back to the Enchanted Forest to save your parent’s future?”
Emma nodded her head, smiling fondly at the memory.
“And when we were written into Isaac’s story? Camelot, the Underworld, even the beanstalk-”
“Yes, babe, I remember it all. Why?”
Killian took his hand from her heart and wrapped his arm around her torso, mirroring the closeness he wished to speak about, “In each of those scenarios we found each other, saved each other, or made quite the team fighting off evil. We were more together than apart, like the universe was telling us that in any time or place, you and I were meant to be.”
Emma didn’t know quite where he was headed, but she waited patiently, caressing his cheek.
“You haven’t told me much about what went on in the wish realm, but I do know we crossed paths. And, well, I was just wondering if there was any connection between us, as there always has been?”
28 & 29 April 2017
I just read about a 12-year-old Australian rock climber, Angie Scarth-Johnson, who is already the best junior in the world and is set to eclipse the world women’s competition as well. Not your average tween girl! To have the mental and physical strength to attempt Grade 34 climbs is remarkable.
I, on the other hand, was screaming after a 00:02:30 wall-sit haha! (I might add it was deeper than the high-angle photo shows - 90° or nothing lol - and I was still jolly at the 30s mark. 😂) This was a Healthy Challenge Group flash challenge - I also did bicycle crunches and pushups - but that has been the extent of my exertions, other than client demonstrations. (I try to make those count; not just go through the motions.)
I have been suffering with my bowel disease as a result of the (truncated) antibiotics course for persistent facial dermatitis. I have been getting up many times in the night and was late for work every day this week. Such is the life of a spoonie with an invisible illness because, of course, I look perfectly normal, but my reality can be extremely painful and messy. The worst part is the fatigue.
In my work, I listen to the difficulties others are experiencing and help them improve their lives by building their strength and fitness. One thing that makes me good at my job is empathy and understanding; I do know how hard it is to find the energy to exercise - do anything - when you are struggling to put one foot in front of the other. When I feel low, I think of what I tell my patients and try to practice what I preach. I can be bright for them, so I should be bright for myself! I inspire them but they inspire me too.
Last night was particularly bad so this morning I passed up the Autumn Liv Ride (such a beautiful day too) and started my day with a 15 minute meditation. I am pretty pleased that I am showing perseverance with the meditation because I think it might be a keystone for improvement, and, as I’ve noted before, the science concurs.
I also plan to get a bit more running in this winter so treated myself to the humorous SunFrog leggings and their ‘Ohhhhhh Shift!’ tee-shirt, which pretty much sums me up on hills.
The food porn is smashed avocado at Doric Street Café, my new favourite place.
people on here love to talk about how it’s bad to make fun of “bad” art drawn by kids (which is true) but then will turn around and laugh at people for having art styles that look too much like steven universe or whatever and there’s almost zero difference, you’re still getting your jollies from making fun of totally harmless art (usually made by young people!) and thats bad no matter how you slice it
Episode 1 drawing finally done for nonhoration! Thanks for being so patient :D
“I got into ZR because I have to walk almost 4km to work every day, so I always hc that before the apocalypse 5 worked in a small (like 1 or 2 employee) museum like I do. Since 5 seems to have a lot of obscure knowledge about everything (or picks up new stuff really fast lol) this fits pretty well.”
