She watches the Nautilus break above the threshold of the sea, first its scope, then the entire body of the submarine. As the vessel grows nearer and nearer, Emma can feel her walls climbing up to shield against the impending disappointment when Killian does not come off that ship. Part of her thinks it’s stupid to believe that he’d be there. She’s looked everywhere, and so why should Nemo’s ship be any different.
And then there’s that gnawing feeling in her gut, the one that tells her when he’s sad, when he’s hiding something, and most importantly, when he’s in danger. It’s that ache that feels much like the last one, and if something happened to him (again) she isn’t sure how she’ll make it this time. Not after everything they’ve been through, not after they’ve gotten so close to a happy future.
Nemo is the first to come out, eyes scanning over the few people that came to welcome them back. Emma had been under the impression that Nemo would be departing with Liam and his crew indefinitely, which is what caught her eye when she felt the rumble of the submarine surfacing. When the captain’s gaze lands on her, Emma swears she sees him soften.
It appears as though someone might be coming out next, but suddenly they’re shoved out of the way and a familiar head of inky hair pokes out from the hatch. Emma’s heart stops in her chest, and if only for a moment, everything feels like it’s falling back into place.
“Killian,” she chokes in a quiet voice that sounds half like a whimper. As if the wind carried his sweet name to his ears, his head snaps up. The moonfall that reflects on the water is enough illuminescence to show Emma the comforting blues of his eyes. One look at him and she realizes there will never be a place where she doesn’t belong completely to him.
She sees him say her name, a recognizable shape on his lips. He must be saying it in his own whispers of disbelief, because she can’t hear it until he comes barreling forward.
A few quick observations meet her acquaintance as he rushes forward. The first being that he is filthy, patches of blood and dirt sticking to his messy hair and skin. Then she realizes that she seems to be walking toward him, a reflex that takes over when he comes near her like a magnet. The last things she notices are the few tears that trace down his cheek, smearing away dirt in their tracks.
“Emma?” he calls, boots stomping on the snowy ground. “Emma.”
A woman can be demure, lady-like and the most prim and proper character, and still have a toughness and resiliency as apparent as a superhero-type female character or a warrior or soldier type. It’s all about the story, the character, and the course of events in that piece of work and how that character is presented.
you know when you post something embarassing and then you try to cover it up by posting other things right after it? i like to think that that’s why jimin and namjoon tweeted right after yoongi and his “omg hobi stop taking photos of me wearing your present~~~~”

Kat nodded, putting her notebook down and looking at Vinnie. She understood what the other girl meant. Being out in nature had that same affect on her. The ghost of Great Gram – though you only ever called her Grams no matter what – always told the kids it was because they were witches and were tied more to nature than any mere mortal was.
“I get that. When I’m out here, I feel like I am right and not a freak like I get called sometimes at school. I feel more grounded and connected to everything… like I’m whole.” She smiled. “I’m glad that you decided to come out here with me.”

— Damon stared at Katherine’s ’birthday present‘— herself wrapped in a giant red bow— and ONLY a red bow— and he, like a stupidly innocent wide-eyed schoolboy, stared at her with his mouth hanging slightly ajar as he swallowed thickly in appreciation. Snap the hell out of it, man! She’s just gonna use you like she always does! Katherine Pierce does not want you and for her to want you there’s gotta be an ulterior motive, don’t be a damned idiot and fall for her crap! That seemed to wake him up enough to make the allure of the vision before him fade back to reality when he finally managed to rearrange his expression into one of irritated disgust, a scowl furrowing his brows while he silently hated her for having that effect on him. No one but Katherine had ever managed to get that reaction. Not even Elena. “Nooo, c’mon, don’t get cooties on my bed. Please? I don’t know where you’ve been and I’m too damn drunk to do laundry!”
