until the end of time (1/1)
Goes AU after the sneak peek from 614, right after Emma shares her news with Regina.
She wants Regina to have what she deserves most of all, but Regina so rarely gets it. And today, she looks even unhappier, and maybe that’s why Emma can’t find the smile to plaster onto her face again. “We’ll still…I’ll still be co-parenting with you,” Regina says carefully, and she reaches up, tucking hair out of Emma’s face with a motherly sort of gentleness. Emma shivers, and Regina smiles painfully. “Until the end of time.”
“Unless I die next week, of course,” Emma points out, and Regina looks at her with sudden fierceness.
“Like I said,” she says tightly. “The end of time.”
