the jolly roger is my fave

Hey! I was wondering what are your top 5 fave CS AU fics?

Okay so I cannot pick 5 as CS AU’s are my very favorite type of fic, so here have the tip of the iceberg: 

  • Beyond The Horizon by @alexandralyman: When Princess Emma’s ship is captured by the Jolly Roger and Captain Killian Jones, she offers herself as a hostage for ransom if he will let the ship and the other passengers go. With Emma, Killian remembers the honour he once held dear, and Emma catches glimpses of the gentleman Killian had been. Against all odds, the pirate and the princess begin to fall for each other.
  • And Now, Here’s Your Host. by @allrightfine“We need to pick a lane, Emma. We go full on with the internet-friendly bits and schtick, or we give the viewers another reason to watch — our numbers are too dependent on the guests right now, we want everyone tuning in every time.” (a ‘Tonight Show’ AU with Emma as the host and Killian as the new bandleader!)
  • Strangeness & Charm by @bluestoplights: Killian Jones is a pirate captain down on his luck after a falling out with the Evil Queen. Emma Swan just found out she is the Savior. Their shared goals bring them on an epic quest to liberate the kingdom once and for all. It’s a lot easier said than done.
  • Paths That Your Eyes Wander by alchemistc: Coffee shop AU: Emma meets Killian Jones while using his coffee shop as a cover to meet her bail jumpers. 
  • Happy Birthday, Loser by this-too-too-sullied-flesh:  When Mary Margaret has to remind Emma that it’s Elsa’s birthday, she also has to give Emma Elsa’s new number. Only…Emma can’t read the smudged writing on her palm and accidentally texts a total stranger. And then keeps texting the stranger. For months. 
  • Happy Endings by passing-fanciful:  Even sex shop owners can’t get away from holiday merchandising. Luckily for Emma, she gets an assist from one of her regulars.
  • take the weather from your heart by ohmyohpioneer: CS Neighbors AU. Emma finds herself in possession of a cabin in the wilderness of New England with only one neighbor: a certain Killian Jones. 
  • Stardust in Your Skin by julietohara: Emma Swan may believe in magic and curses and fairy tales but she absolutely does not believe in soulmates. (a soulmate!au that’s honestly barely an au.) 
  • I’m like a puzzle (but all of my pieces are jagged) by somanyfandomssolittletime: Emma Swan finds her home and her family, both on and off the ice. Hockey AU with an integrated NHL.
  • Something paradise by @weezlywrites: cs au. ‘there’s something about breaking an engagement and leaving the man you thought you were going to spend the rest of your life with and finding yourself roommate-ing with the man who’s loved you through years and boyfriends and     breakups and uncertainties that makes a person a little weepy, a little     off balance, a little unsure.’
  • that swan girl (she’s got the devil in her) by @ohmyohpioneer: CS Daredevil AU in which there is much vigilanting and also - subsequently - first aid.
  • Possession Is Nine-Tenths by @sambethe: She left and he adjusted. Now Emma keeps poking at the edges of his life and Killian doesn’t know what to do.

Fave cs fics?

I just did a pretty expansive post of my favorites from 2015, but my go-to’s for a mood booster (or destroyer, whatever) are: 

Beyond the Horizon by @alexandralyman: When Princess Emma’s ship is captured by the Jolly Roger and Captain Killian Jones, she offers herself as a hostage for ransom if he will let the ship and the other passengers go. With Emma, Killian remembers the honour he once held dear, and Emma catches glimpses of the gentleman Killian had been. Against all odds, the pirate and the princess begin to fall for each other.

Walking in a Straight Line by msgenevieve447: It’s one of the oldest stories in the book. Two old friends have a few too many drinks, two old friends share a kiss. Happens all the time, right? But what happens when only one of them actually remembers it?

Paths That Your Eyes Wander by alchemistc: Coffee shop AU: Emma meets Killian Jones while using his coffee shop as a cover to meet her bail jumpers.

Happy Birthday, Loser by this-too-too-sullied-flesh:  When Mary Margaret has to remind Emma that it’s Elsa’s birthday, she also has to give Emma Elsa’s new number. Only…Emma can’t read the smudged writing on her palm and accidentally texts a total stranger. And then keeps texting the stranger. For months.

Happy Endings by passing-fanciful:  Even sex shop owners can’t get away from holiday merchandising. Luckily for Emma, she gets an assist from one of her regulars.

White Light on a Black Sea Chapter 18: XVII, an once upon a time fanfic | FanFiction

Alrighty, another chapter posted!

I just want to say a HUGE “Thank You!” to everyone who’s been reading and enjoying this story. It hit 500 reviews/follows with the last chapter, and I don’t think there are words to express how much it means to me every time I get a kind note, fave, follow or review. It absolutely makes the daunting task of writing a 35+ chapter story seem worth every bit of the effort.

“White Light on a Black Sea”

A Captain Swan story with a Black Sails twist. Princess Emma is on her way to her wedding when her ship is attacked by the Jolly Roger. Captured by ruthless pirates and miles from home, she is subject to the mercy of the handsome and dangerous Captain Hook. These aren’t the fairytale pirates you know. Will contain very mature themes. Dark!Hook/Princess Emma

@danielleharrisblog requested 44 “If you die, I’m gonna kill you.” for Captain Cobra. One of my all time faves - that somehow became Captain Cobra Swan in this piece. Sort of. Thanks so much for the prompt!

Happy Families

There were tiny moments in Henry Mills’ life when he wished for the life of a normal teenager. Mom, Dad, grandparents who weren’t fairy tale heroes.

Or villains.

These moments usually came when some monster attacked the town just as he cracked the next level on a new game. Or tried to go an a date.

Yep, that one especially.

But the vast majority of the time - as he clashed swords with Grandpa or steered the Jolly Roger under Killian’s tutelage - life in his fairy tale family was pretty sweet.

How many people could claim a Saviour as their mother AND the famous Captain Hook as their step dad, he thought, as he watched Killian and his mom, swords drawn as they circled around a pair of errant trolls that had somehow made their way into the centre of town.

Even in the heat of battle, the fact that the princess and the pirate were true loves was obvious. Not in the way their movements synchronised as they fought their way towards their targets, or in the way a tiny smile fluttered across their faces when they caught sight of the other.

Nope. It was definitely the bickering.

No matter how hard fought the battle against their foe, Emma Swan and Killian Jones would fight the battle of wits harder.

As a writer, it was one of his favourite things about them. True love was wonderful, he was sure - all that gooey, together forever stuff definitely seemed a winning fairy tale formula - but a good bit of banter was a fine addition to any story.

Hence his position close enough to the action to hear them in action, savouring every word as he planned and plotted the next part of their tale.

The metallic clank of sword on sword rang across the street as his mom called out to her partner.

“Watch your back, old man. Arthritis slowing you down?”

“Just covering your youthful lack of experience, love.”  The pirate grinned as he thrust forward and Henry found himself grinning back, knowing if he could see his mom’s face it would be much the same.

“Don’t you worry about me, Jones,” she shot back without a beat. “I can handle myself.”

Henry didn’t need to see Killian’s face to see the cogs turning on that one. Kid or not, he had seen that raised eyebrow often enough to know what was coming. He managed to resist putting his fingers in his ears. Just.

“Oh I know you can, darling believe me.”

Henry regretted the fingers in ears decision.

Emma spun almost casually - he couldn’t imagine where she had learned that move -  her sword swinging in a wide arc before connecting with a troll.

“Just know this, mate.“ Her imitation of the pirate’s accent had not improved any, Henry noted. “If you die, I’m gonna kill you.”

“Noted, Swan,” Killian answered back, a final blow sending the trolls headed back towards the bridge, where Henry knew the Merry Men waited for them. “But not if your father gets me first, I’d wager.”

Henry snorted as he hastily scribbled some final notes about the encounter. He wanted to head to the troll bridge, keen to add to the tale of his other potential step dad, but he paused to watch as his mom and Killian pulled each other close, the snark of the battle replaced with tender touches and loving looks.

They just looked happy.

He knew it wasn’t much of an descriptor. But this was his family - and happy was what he wanted for them all.
