Just a little smutty Friends to Lovers (with no pining!) fun for this holiday, dedicated to @swallowedsong for various reasons. Sláinte! (rated M, 3000 words, AO3)
She almost choked on her green beer as her best friend’s feet came up off the ground as the burly, flanneled lumberjack (well, big guy in flannel shirt) at the bar planted a smacking kiss right on those unsuspecting lips. She’d told Killian what would happen if we wore that shirt, but he didn’t listen. Emma’s laughter is lost in the packed pub filled to the brim with St. Patrick’s Day revelers, but she knows Killian hears it, his telltale eyebrow lifting as Paul Bunyan releases him and gives him a jovial pat on the back.
“You had to know that would happen at some point, lad.”
Emma shakes her head at Killian’s seemingly unflappable facade, watching as he shares a big grin and a toast with his kissing buddy at the end of the bar. But as he makes his way back to her she can see the signs of his mild embarrassment in the red glow of his pointy ears to the sheen of sweat at the hollow of his throat.
“Regretting that shirt yet?”
“Why Swan? That was the best kiss I’ve had all night.”
I just saw some bitter person complaining about an ask I got about Swanfire and HarleyJoker and how they are both unhealthy, toxic relationships. They said, “what fucking show are they watching?” When I should ask the same question, what show are YOU watching? But considering the amount of OUAT hate on your blog, it doesn’t seem like you even like the show or even watch it so that says a lot right there.
But anyways, HJ is on a way different level, obviously, I never said they are the same. What I SAID was that they are BOTH unhealthy and toxic relationships, which they are. Swanfire was toxic AF and completely unhealthy for Emma. He belittled her, took advantage of a young, native, underage girl who has abandonment issues, made her feel like crap, betrayed her, laughed in her face when she expressed the pain it felt when he abandoned her, put down her skills and made her feel worthless, LEFT HER IN PRISON PREGNANT FOR HIS CRIME,
and never even bothered to find her and properly apologize but, instead, say he “didn’t have a choice” even though August clearly gave him one. He could have stayed with her and helped her find a way to break the curse together, but instead, was a coward and ran away from his problems.
He also said if he had known who Emma was he would have never gone near her. Now doesn’t that just sound like true love and healthy? *being sarcastic*
He had hurt her SO BAD that she had wished he was dead. Now does any of that sound health and romantic? Hell fucking no.
Swanfire is unhealthy, toxic, not good for Emma at ALL. And I thank my lucky stars that this ship isn’t canon and has sunk to the bottom of the ocean. Even JMo, who knows her character very, very well and knows Emma Swan WAY better than anyone, agrees that Neal is not her happy ending. He has betrayed Emma too many times.
So yes, Swanfire is toxic and unhealthy. If you’ve got a problem with that than I suggest you stay away from my blog and the anti SF tags, where my post was PROPERLY TAGGED.
It took me awhile but i warmed up to the puppets and the phase 3 cgi. I love the queen speech and Murdoc and 2D actually getting along. Pissing themselves over swan scones warms my heart every time, like i want more of them cracking shit jokes to each other.
YEAH THAT’S WHY I LIKE THE HELL PUPPETS!!!
i love the new york interview so much cus like?? even if it’s the puppets it’s just really nice to see them actually getting along?? and like laughing together and making jokes
i don’t even care if they fall out character towards the end, i love it so much
True love is “I will always find you” not abandoning someone because Pinocchio tells you to, moving on and falling in love with someone else, and telling the other person that if you knew who they were you wouldn’t have ever gone near them.
If this doesn’t scream predator than I don’t know what does. This truly gives me the creeps and makes me see, even more than I already do, how extremely toxic and disturbing this relationship is. Emma was too young to be with a man so much older than her.
This right here shows how young Emma was. And you wanna know the sick part of this, besides everything else about SF/ST, is that some people in the SF fandom might actually think this is still cute.. and I just… that is just so wrong on SOOO many levels.
I looked in my heart while the wild swans went over. And what did I see I had not seen before? Only a question less or a question more; Nothing to match the flight of wild birds flying. Tiresome heart, forever living and dying, House without air, I leave you and lock your door. Wild swans, come over the town, come over The town again, trailing your legs and crying!
—Edna St. Vincent Millay, “Wild Swans,” in Second April (1921)
