Title: Loops And Coils
Rating: R/Mature
Summary: Rumpelstiltskin has a little bit of a fixation with Belle’s hair; Belle can’t understand, but is more than happy to enjoy it.

A/N: Yeah okay it’s been a while, sorry about that! This… well, it didn’t qualify for Fluffapollooza, let’s put it that way. It’s for the Rumbelle 2 year Anniversary, at any rate. Enjoy!

Chapter 16


“Papa,” Bae shakes Rumpelstiltskin’s arm, but his father sits frozen still in shock and fear and barely sways with the motion, “Papa! Who’s with Belle?”

“Belle?” The other prisoner - Sir Gaston, apparently - is suddenly all alert. “Surely… you can’t mean the Duke’s daughter?”

Bae nods, urgently, “She’s my step-mama, my papa’s new wife. She was… she was supposed to be with you. Safe.”

Just another Carlyle’s hotness appreciation post.

You can’t help it, just watch and die slowly.

The bottom photo, that’s me, biting my lip hard to prevent myself from just crying out for this man.

God, he’s beautiful and exudes sheer sex……damn, Bobby (whimper, whimper). They’re ALL utterly gorgeous, but that second one in particular makes me want to rip his clothes off.  That suit, oh my goodness - his broad chest (gulp - I have a mighty need to see that naked chest), the way it fits his gorgeous body. I keep looking down, past where the buttons are going, lol……..(I’m terrible, just terrible, but I can’t help it)…….. That face, his expression, those lips.

Take me now, just do it

Okay but seriously I need one of you adorable rumple artists to draw me Rumple really fucking loving his box because RUMPELSTILTSKIN IS A CAT AND CATS ARE BATSHIT ABOUT BOXES.

You know you want it too.

Prompt: While cleaning the Dark Castle, Belle accidentally stumbles into a room to find Rumpelstiltskin tailoring what appears to be a blue dress. She begins to wonder if all the clothes he provided her were made with his own two hands.

For some reason, it feels important that Belle’s clothes be perfect.

Rumpelstiltskin has never had a maid before - his choice to take Belle had been more about the taking than the having, truth be told. And now she has set a prisoner loose, and they have to venture into the world.

Summary: Belle is Peter’s and the Lost Boys’ “Mother,” beloved and needed, and so it’s natural for her to care for Rumple, the newest and most timid of the boys. But feelings in Neverland are hard to hide, and everyone grows up sometime. Neverland AU

Ficlet: Stranger Than Sympathy

Iambicdearie prompted: "The quality of mercy is not strained./ It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven/ upon the place beneath."

Rumpelstiltskin could be merciful.

Rarely, and often to his detriment, but sometimes it was no bad thing to cause confusion among one’s enemies. He was merciful when it cost him nothing, and gained him everything. He was merciful, when mercy was no more than negligence.

You want an essay on why I ship this? Cause you got one!

First of all: Beauty and the Beast is my favourite fairy tale, full stop. It always has been, and it always will be; it’s my favourite story and relationship-development plot in any context, and I’ve read/watched any version I can get my hands on because of that. So I was already disposed to ship this.

Fic: Harmless - Chapter 15

AU: Belle arrives, bruised and bleeding, on the doorstep of a lame spinner and his son. On the run from the war and its causes, her short stop-over becomes something else entirely.

A/N: Sorry this took so long (again) but this is the big chapter I’ve been waiting to write for a year :D Enjoy!

Chapter 1 - Chapter 2 - Chapter 3 - Chapter 4 - Chapter 5 - Chapter 6 - Chapter 7 - Chapter 8 - Chapter 9 - Chapter 10 - Chapter 11 - Chapter 12 - Chapter 13 - Chapter 14 -  Chapter 15Chapter 16



Chapter 15


Rumpelstiltskin awakens to flickering firelight, the only bright spot in a pitch dark room. He feels dirt beneath his hands, a scattering covering a hard flagstone floor, and he jerks awake, the feel of stone slabs under his palms startling him out of his dozing. He isn’t at home, asleep on one of Belle’s rag-sewn rugs. He is in a strange, cold place, and the past few hours flood back as he sits upright.

He and Baelfire had found the inn, and their rooms, and waited patiently, if anxiously, for Belle’s return. But they had not been there an hour before the Ducal Guard had broken down the door, cold and stern, all business, and arrested them. He knew not on what charge: he had been too busy begging them to spare Bae. But Bae had been clapped in irons also.

Fic: Care and Caress

Title: Care and Caress
Rating: R/NC-17
Summary: Rumpelstiltskin arrives home battered and bruise, and what can Belle do but look after him?


Rumpelstiltskin was the Dark One.

Everyone in the Realms knew that. They sang songs and told ghost stories about his mottled, scaly skin and claws stained with his enemies’ blood. About how he stole and tortured and killed his way through every kingdom he came across, and how even the Evil Queen of the Forestlands bent her knee to him.

Fic: The Eye Of The Beholder (4/4)

Title: The Eye Of The Beholder
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Belle is blind, and Rumpelstiltskin is a demon, and both are cursed and more than a little broken.

A/N: Yes there’s four chapters instead of the planned three. Deal with it.

Chapter 1  - Chapter 2 - Chapter 3 - Chapter 4

Chapter 4

They heard her name shouted, a madman’s raving in the dark.

He’s a stupid, stupid creature, her Rumpelstiltskin. Belle had thought he’d have the decency, or at least the wit, not to mention her to anyone. She is gone, she has not seen him since that terrible morning where they cried on the floor, and he hurled her far, far away from him. He has not come for her, and she has not gone back to him. Whatever they had, whatever magic they made together, died that day.

Fic: The Eye Of The Beholder (2/4)

Title: The Eye Of The Beholder
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Belle is blind, and Rumpelstiltskin is a demon, and both are cursed and more than a little broken.

A/N: I wanted to add more scenes to this part, but they felt superfluous and didn’t add to the plot any. I might write more as little scenes and outtakes, though, there’s a certain ballgown I want to play with…

Chapter 1  - Chapter 2 - Chapter 3 - Chapter 4

Chapter 2

After that surprising initial hug, whatever boundary to physical contact they had shared seems to have broken. Suddenly, Belle is caught in a whirl of little guiding touches to her arm or back, and the near-constant sensation of him beside her - closer than he ever would have dared before - before placing a hand on her shoulder to help her down the stairs or around a corner.

Rumpelstiltskin seems to almost hover, these days, and more often than she expects his hand slides into hers, and she is lead that way through the passages without ribbons to guide her.

Title: The Eye Of The Beholder
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Belle is blind, and Rumpelstiltskin is a demon, and both are cursed and more than a little broken.

A/N: This is another one of those stories I’ve had planned forever, and another that is also Fyre’s fault. Blame her.

Chapter 1  - Chapter 2 - Chapter 3 - Chapter 4

Chapter 1

Everything in the Dark Castle is neat and orderly.

Every coil of thread, every artifact, every trophy and exacted price, every little treasure or trinket has its own nook to call home. Nothing lies about, ready to be stepped upon. For a creature born of whirling chaos, Rumpelstiltskin maintains order like a peasant cook in a manor: all things where they should be, and nothing out of place.
