Fic: The Perfect Year

[The first segment of this fic was originally posted back in 2014, I’m posting the whole thing now as a completed one-shot.]

Summary: A very belated sequel to Mistletoe and WineAs Christmas comes to the quiet town of Storybrooke, school librarian Belle finds herself increasingly drawn to the reclusive Mr Gold. And what better time for Gold to make a new start than with a new year?

@woodelf68, sorry you had to wait two years for a conclusion to this fic…


I don’t need a crowded ballroom, everything I need is here.
If you’re with me, this year will be,
The Perfect Year
