Stupid smuff about a second date, some grilled cheese, and Emma not giving a shit about the man he was – only caring about the man he is. Grinding, soggy french fries, and cuddles ahead.
Will you want me always?
It isn’t until after she knocks on his door at Granny’s that she starts to overthink it, frowning down at the styrofoam boxes balanced carefully in her left hand, the smell of fried batter and buttered bread seeping through the lids. She knows he likes grilled cheese – knows he practically devours it every day at noon when he has his lunch at Granny’s (the man is freakishly disciplined about meal times) – but she isn’t sure if this is allowed.
It’s been a long time since first dates and second dates and the formalities in between and she knows from the women’s magazines that Mary Margaret leaves on the coffee table and David loves to read that she should wait a day or two, maybe play hard to get, but –
But she can’t stop thinking about the way he pressed himself against her in the hall outside her door, the way his fingers barely grazed the ends of her ponytail with a light tug before he moved to cupping her neck, his rings cold and heavy against the flushed skin of her throat. She’s already zoned out four times today thinking about how she could feel the groan caught in the back of his throat against her chest and really – she never was one for formalities anyway.
(Plus, she’s played hard enough to get – jungles and portals and emotional baggage to boot – if she’s being quite honest.)
Hi there! Here’s the link for you. Thanks so much and if you get something signed I’d love to see it!
Belle is either a really bad or a really good librarian because that copy of Alice in Wonderland Will stole had no Dewey Decimal System or catalogue number/author index on the spine at all.
Okay, you guys are the best, most supportive, hilarious and lovely fellow crew of the good ship Captain Swan and I have LOVED being a part of it all this year. So as a thankyou (and to celebrate Emma Swan’s birthday!), I have a few things to give away to you that I’ve had printed up from my paintings.
I’d like to give 7 people who follow me a set of the following:
1x ‘Observing Tradition' Xmas Greeting card (blank) plus envelope so you can either keep it or choose to pay it forward to another CS fan. If you do this, let me know and I will throw in an extra magnet for that person.
1x ‘My other ride is the Jolly Roger' vinyl sticker. Perfect for car or bike or whatever vessel you Captain.
1x random postcard.
1x small ‘Stargazers' magnet.
All posted to you in a lovely white envelope with a stamp on it.
I will pick people at random who reblog this post before Friday morning 24th Australian Eastern time (this Thursday night for most of you). (I use the closed eyes, scroll and point trick)
If you’re picked I’ll let you know by Friday night via ask/fanmail. You must be okay with giving me your name and address but I will keep it confidential of course. All countries welcome.
THANKYOU Lovelies! *hugs*
Fandom: Once Upon a Time
Pairing: Captain Swan (mention of Gremma, Neal and Walsh)
Summary: She’s nervous, and she’s not sure she likes the feeling. Emma is feeling more herself tonight than she has in a long time, but there’s still something tying her to the past.
Note: Chapter One of my first official “I survived 404 and now must write fic” story. I’m all aflutter after that episode, and I can’t sit still long enough tonight to write the second part right now.
On the “Once Upon a Time” set in Vancouver earlier this week, Morrison and Colin O’Donoghue tried to be coy on date-based excitement from several reporters about Hook and Emma’s night on the ice-enclosed town.
O’Donoghue: "It’s nice?"
Morrison: "It’s really nice!"
O’Donaghue: "We have a good time."
Morrison: "We have a great time."
For O’Donoghue, it’s important to tie the date into bigger magical doings on “Once Upon a Time.”
"The date itself goes really well for them," he repeats to a small pack of writers. "There are other struggles that are going on behind. Hook has made a deal with Rumplestiltskin to get his hand back so that he can have it to be able to hold Emma, as he says and… he’s worried that the hand is cursed and basically he just won’t have any secrets from Emma and he’s worried that by having this, it’s beginning to bring back the violence that he used to have and that’s behind it all."
"But the date goes well! They have a little kiss," O’Donoghue insists.
Morrison adds, "I’ve heard it’s a really good kiss, according to the editors."
Both actors were amused/interested by getting to mix up episodic wardrobes which, if we’re being honest here, could probably get a bit repetitive.
"He’s made a real effort here," O’Donoghue insists. "This is the first time he’s changed in hundreds of years, I guess… He’s really trying to fit in and really trying to make a life for himself in Storybrooke. So I guess he probably does feel a bit vulnerable. But he’s pretty good at just sorta adapting, Hook. Know what I mean? He’s a survivor. The vulnerability is less about what he’s wearing and more just the fact that he’s opened his heart up to someone again and how that makes him feel. That’s where the real vulnerability is.”
Notes Morrison, "This is the first time that Emma is wearing something that’s softer and gentler and sweeter and romantic. To me, that was really important, because I wanted it to be symbolic of something very different than the other times we’ve seen her on a date. We’ve seen her with the guy who was a perpetrator that she was after and that was a ruse, that was her just playing a character in order to catch this guy. So she sorta played the stereotypical ‘date’ look. And then we saw her on a date Walsh when she was in New York and she was still having to make her own way and she was a single mom and she was into black leather there’s something still kinda tough and edgy about that. And now, she really likes this guy and she’s very genuine about it and it needs to be something that she found in Storybrooke, because she wouldn’t have had something like that in her wardrobe, so it needs to look like it could have come from Storybrooke, but it also needs to look like something that she feels comfortable in. It’s definitely the softest, most romantic side of her and the fact that she feels safe enough and inspired to express that part of herself to him, I think was a really important thing to show."
Emma’s living situation in Storybrooke is a little silly at this point, which leads to date-based amusement.
"I’m getting ready to go and there’s no escaping the fact that mom and dad are saying ‘Good-bye’ and wanting a picture of it. So it’s a little bit prom-ish in that sense," Morrison says.
Wasn’t Emma’s son Henry digging through real estate listings last season?
"It’s definitely crowded," laughs Jared Gilmore in another "Once" set interview. "We have Prince Charming and Snow White — Mary Margaret and David — and then Emma, me, the baby. I think it’s about time Henry gets his own room. It’s not like he can be here forever and live in the same, essentially, big room with everyone else."
And that means that Charming and Snow White respond to their daughter’s date the way many non-magical parents do.
"We sit up all night waiting for her and David certainly doesn’t want to know any of the details," Josh Dallas says.
"And yet he waits," Ginnifer Goodwin adds.
