Imagine #9: A Queen Doesn’t Need A King- Part 2

Request:  okay but an imagine for Peter Pan based off of Castle by Halsey

Part 1


It’s been weeks since the rebels vanished from Pan’s camp. They’ve been in hiding, and no one knew where they were. Y/N was busy running camp, ensuring that they all trained, that they continued to get better. When night rolled around they gathered around and planned their attack, making sure every single detail, every possibility was accounted for and mapped out. The nerves were brewing and as the weeks drew on they became restless, ready to take Neverland back.

Meanwhile, back at the lost boys’ camp they all danced around and acted as if everything was fine. Not a single lost boy was worried about the growing threat, none took it seriously. Not even the Boy King. It was one evening when Felix made his way to Pan’s tent that he finally questioned him. “Pan,” Felix’s voice had drawled out, “Don’t you think we should prepare for the band of misfits that Y/N has?”

A chuckle escaped Peter’s lips, “Why would we waste our time doing that?”

The second hand man paused for a moment, seemingly surprised that his leader was unconcerned, “You aren’t worried about their attack.” It was a statement rather than a question, an observation that is now a conclusion. The fact hung in the air between the two, almost leaving a lingering presence.

Peter looked to him in disbelief, “Don’t tell me you’re worried. They’re nothing but children trying to play a game they cannot win.”

Felix’s face stayed blank of any emotion, but he made his way to the exit. Before leaving he looked to Pan, “If there is one thing I learned in my time before Neverland, it is never to dismiss a group of people who have a reason to fight. Especially one with vengeance for their family pumping through their veins.”

Felix left before he got a response. He made his way to the forest, deciding to scope out and see if he could find the group, or at least have some form of contact. He continued to trudge through the forest, careful not to make any noise.

Finally after some time and a few twists and turns he heard a drop behind him. He turned around to see Y/N in a crouched position before she stood to her full height. The girl before him had war paint on her face, her Y/E/C eyes dark as she assessed him. “What do you need Felix?”

It was a simple question, but not the question he had expected. He was expecting her to threaten him, to tell him to leave, not to ask him what he needed. He considered this for a moment, “I need you to stop this silly game you’re playing.” The words felt weird on his lips, silly game. Not his words, but his leaders and he knew they were wrong to say.

It must have shown because Y/N raised an eyebrow, “Silly game? Felix, do you honestly believe that this is just a silly game?” Nothing came from the boy, and she stood there pondering it for a moment, “I guess it is a game, if you want to put it that way. A game for power, a game of war. But in no way is it silly Felix. In the end only one person will be left standing, and I’ll be damned if it’s that green eyed demon.”

Felix wasn’t a stupid person, not by any means. He stayed silent, he observed, he learned and adapted well. He knew that Y/N was a threat, he knew it the first day he saw her, the day after Pan supposedly “broke her”. Although she was obedient and did as told, he saw in her eyes the anger, the thirst for revenge, for blood. He saw the monster inside her, but only he saw it for she kept it well hidden. It was only in the moments when she thought no one was looking that it flickered for a half second, and even the sharpest of eyes wouldn’t spot it. Not unless you grew up watching people, observing, being weary. Only Felix saw the true her. Which is why he knew she was a threat. He knew she was a bomb ready to go off. But he also knew Peter Pan. He knew what the Demon King was capable of, he has seen the worst of Pan’s work, and he knew that when they clashed Neverland was going to be a bloodbath.

A sigh escaped him, “You should have just kept your pretty mouth shut.” Her eyes darkened at this, but he shook his head, “You can attack us, but we will win. Peter Pan never fails.” And again the boy left the person behind, not waiting for a response. His voice seemed resolute, no crack or shake. Something he’s perfected, because deep inside he wasn’t sure if they would win this time, but it was his loyalty that kept him planted next to Pan and it was his brain that told him to fear the girl he just left.


Note: I’m making this into three parts now, I felt this was more Felix oriented and thought I should separate the battle from it. Anyway part 3 will be out soon, hope you enjoyed this!

Imagine. Peter going to Storybrooke to take you back to Neverland with him.

“Just let her go and no one will be hurt. I promise. She is all I want.” Emma, Mary Margaret, David and Regina stepped forward. “You’ll never get her!” Emma yelled. Peter laughed a bit. “Remember what I told you back there, lost girl. Peter Pan never fails.” His laugh turned into a smirk. 

do you ever think about the fact that the first time Killian saw his ship, it was after his brother found a way to free them from a life of servitude and abuse, and that it must’ve been the first time in years that he felt free?

and that he spent several years happily serving with his brother on that very same ship, and it was the last place he saw Liam alive?

and that the ship that freed him granted the same freedom to Milah, and that they fell in love and built a life together on board? and that Killian had to watch another person he loved die on the ship that was his safe haven? and that the Jolly, which had once seemed so lucky, felt somewhat cursed after her death?

and that he still held onto the Jolly, even with the tragic memories clinging to it, because it was the only place that had ever felt like home, and the only thing he had left to love?

and that he risked taking the ship back to Neverland, in spite of knowing how risky that was, because at his core Killian is a good man, and he was finding his way back to the light?

and that when he was separated from Emma during the missing year, he put all of his passion and frustration and loss into finding the Jolly again, even to the point of sacrificing his morality to get it?

do you ever think about the fact that after ALL of that went down, Captain Killian Jones still traded away his ship in order to save Emma Swan?

“Alright everyone!” Leroy shouted.  “That’s a wrap for the day.”

Emma took a deep breath and let it out, slowly transforming from Anna Swan back into herself. She glanced at her watch as Leroy droned on with his reminders about the schedule for tomorrow.  5:00.   That was the earliest they’d ever wrapped for the day.  

Regina was giving them a night off.  This was a day to mark on the calendar.  (Leroy said it was because they were ahead of schedule and the day’s shoot had gone unusually well, but…well, Emma suspected the reason for the early wrap had more to do with Robin visiting the set and asking Regina for a date.  Whatever the reason, Emma wasn’t complaining.)

“Hey Emma,” Mary Margaret said, coming up to join her, “David and I were thinking about getting some dinner at The Big Bad Wolf.  Wanna join us?”

The Big Bad Wolf was a favorite of the cast and crew.  A little diner run by a no-nonsense lady known only as “Granny”, it had good food and an even better atmosphere.

“Sure,” Emma said, “I don’t think we’ve hung out since filming began.  Sounds good.”

“Great!” Mary Margaret said.  “How about we meet you guys there at 6?”

Emma narrowed her eyes.  “You guys? Mary Margaret who exactly is coming to dinner?”

Mary Margaret looked aside, took a deep breath and then pasted on the fakest smile Emma’d ever seen.  “Well, you…and Killian.”

Emma Swan crossed her arms and took a step back.  “No.  No, not a chance.  Not gonna happen.  Absolutely not. Just NO.”

Why had she ever agreed to take this project?  Why had she let Mary Margaret and Ruby talk her into it?  Even just reading the script gave her a bad feeling about all of it—it was an interesting story concept but it hit way too close to home.  And if that wasn’t bad enough, now they’d finished the casting and the producer, Regina Mills had just broken the news to her.

Well, they were just going to have to work on recasting a few roles because there was no way in hell she was going to act opposite Killian Jones.

“Alright everyone! Break’s over!”  Leroy growled, stopping into the break room with a scowl. “Let’s get this show on the road.”

Killian groaned.  It had been a long day; these hours were killer. Taking a last gulp of his water, he got to his feet and offered his costar his hand.  “Guess we’d best go, Swan.”

She closed her eyes tightly, burrowing farther into the couch she’d claimed as her own when they’d started in on their break.  It amused (and kind of impressed) him, her ability to fall asleep at the drop of a hat.

“Don’t want to. Comfortable,” She groused.

He laughed and tapped her on the shoulder.  “Are you really willing to risk Leroy and Regina’s wrath, love?”

She cracked an eye and then sighed.  “Guess not.”

Emma took his hand and let him pull her to her feet.  He smiled as they walked the few steps back to the set.  To tell the truth, he found this woman fascinating.  Certainly they hadn’t started on the best footing.  She’d fairly run from him that day of the chemistry test.  But despite the rocky start, he believed things were going well now.

Well, as well as he could expect.

Emma shivered as she stuck her key in the lock and turned. It had been quite the day; she was fairly certain she was never going to be dry or warm again. 

She pushed the door open with a weary sigh, surprised to find the lights on and a very chipper Ruby sitting at her table.

“Hi Emma!” Ruby said, saluting her with a glass of red wine, “how was your first day of filming?”

Emma side-eyed her “friend”. Hard.  “Ruby, it’s 3:45 in the morning.  Why are you here?  And why are you so dressed up?”

“You really should check out this script, mate,” Robin said, “it’s bloody perfect for you.”

Killian took a swig of his rum, grinning to himself. “Let me guess…it’s a Regina Mills production?”

Robin grinned back, taking a healthy swig of his beer before continuing. “It may be my fiancée’s current project but that makes it no less perfect for you.  I know you don’t have any pressing projects at the moment.  What would it hurt to just check it out?”

“Alright, I’ll bite,” Killian said, “what exactly is so perfect about this particular script?”

“It’s got action, adventure, a bit of whimsy, and romance,” Robin answered. “You’d be taking the role of Captain Hook.”

“A villain?”

“Well, perhaps more of a reformed scoundrel,” Robin allowed. “He is the male romantic lead, after all.”
