She saw him glance once more at Regina, which made her stomach churn more than the seasickness. The look cause of a ripple of protectiveness in her belly, which was confusing. She shouldn’t feel the need to save Regina from Gold’s planning. The other woman was capable of evading Gold’s machinations on her own – except these days Regina seemed softened. There were no more bruising stares, or deeply cutting remarks. Regina felt almost nebulous to Emma these days, which was worrisome.

I LOVE THIS FANDOM SO MUCH.

Okay I finally wrote this chapter I promised
One death during The Miller’s Daughter just wasn’t painful enough, quite frankly, so another major character will be biting the dust.
We diverge from canon at the moment Cora’s heart is returned to her body, and this time not by Regina’s hand. What happens from there leads to a new Dark One, a family in turmoil and new alliances being formed to protect the most important person in all of their lives. Hey, like Hillary Clinton said: it takes a village. Slow-burning but definitely a Swan Queen story, so hang in there with me. I’ll update just as frequently as I can.
This is an AU requested by the lovely thewhitestars. The title is a nod to the excellent novel by Lionel Shriver, ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin’.
AN: I should be working on A Dream Can Change It All but I was listening to Secret Smile by Semisonic and this one-shot popped into my head. I don’t own Once or it’s characters. Apologies for any mistakes.
SQ - Emma thinks about Regina’s smiles. Kind of AU because in my version of 2x21 Emma saves Regina.
“Nobody knows it but you’ve got a secret smile
And you use it only for me
Nobody knows it but you’ve got a secret smile
And you use it only for me”
Everyone has seen your “smile”, that plastic fake one you wear for appearance’s sake. I can tell you’d rather cry but you have practiced mask so people just see that smile. Am I the only one who can see it isn’t real?
