Emma Swan just wants to write the follow-up to her bestselling debut novel, that’s all. But when she gets off to a rough start with her new editor, Killian Jones, she knows it’s not going according to plan. Then, an unexpected figure from Emma’s past reappears and life begins to mirror the crime thriller she’s penning. Suspicion and secrets abound–but love might too. A writer/editor AU with a thriller twist.
Rated E. Includes sexual content, kidnapping, some gore, and minor character death–not to mention salty language! On Ao3 here.
This first chapter includes swearing and bad attitudes.
Emma is on her way to meet her new editor, Killian Jones. It goes off the rails quickly, but they still have to find a way to work together.
Emma was not excited. Well, she was excited to begin working on her second novel. Her first had been a breakaway hit, surprising her and her publishing house. Apparently people ate up her gritty tale of life as a bail bondsperson and were eager to see a second book from the new darling of thrillers.
I’m laughin I’m cryin because I Realized Anna and Ben did the same thing, but different/similar:
1. Anna tries to marry a British Officer, knowing his loyalties | Ben gets involved with a Tory, not knowing her loyalties
2. Anna tries to marry the Officer | for Ben it’s a one-night-only
3. Anna fully intends to go through with marrying Hewlett | Ben says he wants Sarah to come back to camp with him - I don’t know if he was even thinking in terms of marriage but he definitely thought they were Together and did not intend to leave things the way they wound up.
4. Anna’s attempt to marry Hewlett was something she planned | Ben’s thing with Sarah was entirely spur-of-the-moment
5. Anna and Hewlett didn’t | Ben and Sarah did
Hewlett and Anna,,,,,actually kinda knew each other | Ben and Sarah just met that day smh
7. just. the fact Annlett was something a lot of people wanted | and you could probably count on maybe…two hands…how many people were okay with the Livingston Debacle <.<
Hewlett was Invested in the relationship | Sarah was already Noping That by the very next day
both ended horribly but. Anna got sabotaged by a third party | Ben and Sarah didn’t need any help sinking their ship
10. Hewlett’s response is to leave the fight | Sarah’s is to join it
British Vogue better get Helena Bonham Carter on the cover again soon, and she better get to do an Inside The Wardrobe and In The Bag video for their YouTube channel I mean can yOU IMAGINE SEEING INSIDE THAT WOMAN’S WARDROBE
The world was lucky to have Obama. The world was lucky to have a man who showed the world that if we open our minds, and open our hearts, change can happen. The world witnessed social change in America we have not seen the like of before. The world witnessed America, a ‘white’ country built on black slavery, elect their first black president, not once, but twice. The world witnessed this man bring the country back from the brink of another Great Depression. The world witnessed this man light up the white house in a rainbow, saying you have every right to love who it is you love. The world witnessed America, the only major western nation not to have guaranteed healthcare, now have the highest number of people on insurance ever recorded.
The world witnessed Obama bring so much radical, good change to America, all the while being faced by opposition by the Republicans time and time again. The world witnessed his government be shut down for 16 days in 2013 because the Republicans refused to pass the ACA, but Obama absolutely refused it to be denied. And he eventually won that battle.
Obama brought change to America. Never let anybody tell you any different.
The world has lost an intelligent, kind-hearted, graceful leader, full of poise and wisdom. The world probably won’t fully appreciate how much we will miss him until next week he is no longer ours.
So if you believe in Obama. If you believe in what he stood for, and in the change he fought for and achieved, then you have never been more needed. Get involved. Join the DNC. Make your opinions known.
Let Trump know, loud and clear, that you will not have the rights Obama fought for and gave you taken away easily. FIGHT THIS. Fight for your future, fight for those who cannot.
FIGHT TO SAY THAT YOU BELIEVE NO HUMAN IS LESSER THAN ANOTHER HUMAN BECAUSE OF SOMETHING AS MENIAL AS SKIN COLOUR, ETHNICITY, SEXUALITY, GENDER, OR MONEY IN THEIR POCKET.
DO NOT LET THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION SILENCE YOU.
YOUR VOICE HAS NEVER BEEN NEEDED MORE THAN IT IS NEEDED NOW.
FIGHT FOR WHAT OBAMA FOUGHT FOR. KEEP OBAMA’S LEGACY ALIVE.
“People with blue eyes are supposedly the most fun and happy. They kiss the best and will love when not wanted, they always end up falling for people they haven’t known long. They are very protective with their true loves, they are the most hyper and crazy people. You’re lucky if you have one close to you in your lifetime”
Here we go folks! This chapter has been split into two, because it will flow better that way, and it was getting very long again! You won’t have to wait long for what will now be nine, but I think when you read it you’ll agree they work better separately!
ENJOY! And as always, let me know what you think. I love getting feedback, be it good or bad!
Putting the whole thing here ‘cause I know FF is being difficult!
