Aside from kisses and hugs, do you have a favourite CS caress? They are very tactile with each other, and I love it. <3
THEY ARE SO TACTILE!
There are so many of these moments that I could pick a different favorite every day for a month probably, but since I have to answer, I’m going to go with one of the first times Emma ever caressed Hook’s face because it is so meaningful.
This is a moment where Emma is forced by circumstances to confront her real feelings. A day or so earlier she was furious, walls that had been cracking and tumbling down, snaping back into place in record speed, hours earlier she was still angry at him, and moments earlier she was annoyed with him, but in one single moment the world changed and his life was in danger and Emma couldn’t imagine an existence without him.
Suddenly, all that mattered was saving him, her anger be damned, her trust issues be damned, her magic and what losing it meant in their fight against Zelena, be damned.
And for the first time ever we saw how much she cared for him, and all of it is embodied in this slight, tender stroke of gloved finger across pale, stubbled cheek.
It’s so subtle that without all the talented gif makers it might have gone unnoticed, but you slow this down and isolate this moment and it gets me right in the feels. Every. Damn. Time.
Emma loved him, ya’ll. Even then.
