Anonymous asked: Do you still ship Mad Swan?
I do, and I want Mad Swan to be the rival ship not Captain Swan, because BONDING OVER ESTRANGED CHILDREN AND TEA PARTIES AND OPPOSITES ATTRACT AND UUGH FEELINGS. Cause she’s this skeptic, realistic, sarcastic type, and he started out that way, but then somewhere he became more emotional, committed, and I think he still has that wicked sense of fun which Emma needs. Shipping it forever, tbh.
But with Seb so rarely on the show and with Swan Thief/Swanfire cuteness increasing (and my neverending love for Neal :D), I’m less of an active Mad Swan shipper these days. Just because there’s no development and little to work with, and they get eclipsed by Swanfire now. I do still love them to pieces, though! :D
Mad Swan. Pregnancy test.
“We’re calling it March.” Jefferson says, pacing, “Boy or girl.”
“We don’t even know if there’s a kid to name yet,” Emma scowls, sitting on the toilet, the pregnancy test carefully out of either of their sight, “And we’re not calling it anything fairytale-y. Nope. Plus you got to name Grace; I had my mom’s attempted murderer name my son after the man she killed to send a whole world to hell. I get to name this one.” She sighs, the fight draining out of her “I don’t even understand how this happened…”
Jefferson gives a low chuckle, and raises an eyebrow, “What part between the lingerie and the handcuffs didn’t you understand?”
First day rebellion (open for mini-prompts :D)
I am going NaNo rebel… on day one.
Mainly because my original characters are sulking and I can’t be arsed talking them around today. So I’m taking mini-prompts for a few hours to boost word count :D
Any pairing you like, especially if you know I ship it!
Doing an hour of mini-AUs

Collection of Mini AU’s - Mad Swan
Send an ask to prompt a possible full fic!
Fic: Lion Cub
Title: Lion Cub
Rating: PG-13 for swearing
Pairing: Married!Mad Swan, with Henry and Grace
Summary: In which Grace is bullied, Henry is a hero and Emma and Jefferson spy on their babies from the bushes.
I suppose you could take Skeptics and True Believers as background, but you don’t need to have read it to follow this. Post-curse break, everyone remembers who they were.
Marchie prompted: “Coffee or tea?” and “A cry for help”
Anon prompted: Emma, Jefferson, Henry and Grace have breakfast together
Emma refuses to drink tea with her husband.
Bad memories, she supposes, not to mention a lifetime addicted to coffee. Henry understands, doesn’t question – although he takes his willingly from his stepfather with milk and two sugars - but Grace frowns everyday when her stepmother turns down the same.
Jefferson just smirks. Of course he understands why, why when they first lived together she tiptoed around the kitchen like everything was poisonous, why she disinfected every coffee mug and teacup he had before she drank from them.
Fic: Necromancy by Degrees
So here it is: the final chapter of my Mad Swan fic, ‘Skeptics and True Believers’.
In which Gold and Emma strike a kind of truce, and Emma and Jefferson learn a few things, and Belle is comatose on a sofa. Follows on from ‘Stone Walls and Top Hats’.
Full chapter listing at my masterlist.
Thank you to everyone who’s been reading this and following along! You guys are amazing and beautiful, and I want to hug every last one of you!
accio-firewhiskey prompted: A Dartboard for Witches
Necromancy by Degrees
Emma gets a 911 call as soon as she gets back to the station.
One of Mr Gold’s neighbours: another domestic disturbance. She’s wanted a word with him since the asylum, but that was hours ago and the man knows how to disappear.
Fic: Stone Walls and Top Hats
A/N: Part of my Mad Swan series ‘Skeptics and True Believers’, follows on from ‘Light In All the Darkness’. The penultimate chapter! In which there is Helle, Rumbelle, Gold talking sense into Emma, and Henry being adorable.
Full chapter listing at my masterlist.
Claireymil prompted: ‘Hope is the thing with feathers’
Stone Walls and Top Hats
Emma drops Paige back at home. She hopes that, one day, she can allow Jefferson to be in the same room with the girl without having to keep them apart. A part of her is starting to think there really is more to this than meets the eye, more strangeness on this Earth than she’d allowed herself to dream.
Henry’s delighted, of course.
My ask box is open for prompts! Lay em on me!
As random and weird as you like!
Just a few guidelines:
- The shorter the better: fully-fledged plots are less likely to inspire anything. Of course, you can still submit a full plot if you want, but it’s just less likely to be filled. Cy’s ‘five words’ rule is probably a decent guideline.
- If you have any ship preferences - e.g, you hate Mad Swan, only like Rumbelle ect - or don’t want to be used in smut, please tell me in your ask. Otherwise, I’ll assume you don’t care.
- Anonymous is fine, but I won’t know who to credit.
Fic: Light In All the Darkness
Part 5 of my Mad Swan fic ‘Skeptics and True Believers’, follows on from ‘A Hand to Hold’ Wherein we have Helle friendship, and Grace/Paige actually gets lines.
(Full chapter listing at my masterlist)
Light In All The Darkness
Regina comes in the middle of the day, when she knows Emma will be at work.
Jefferson is trusted to stay in Granny’s, where Ruby can keep an eye on him. If he leaves, Granny calls the Sheriff and she’s there in a heartbeat.
When the phone rings, and Emma picks it up, she expects to hear that he’s gone outside and disappeared, or that he’s harassed a customer. He gives people the creeps, she knows that, but people have come to accept that he’s her responsibility and that she’ll deal with it.
Fic: A Hand to Hold
Thank you to everyone who is reading this and following along! I love all of you guys.
shadowhostage prompted: Robot Unicorn Attack
schmoo999 prompted: hand stitch crazy quilt
A Hand to Hold
Emma walks Jefferson to his first meeting with Dr Hopper, and even offers to wait outside.
She hopes he won’t do something drastic in the time between her leaving him and them meeting up again. She’s actually reached a point where doesn’t think that he’ll drug her again – but she still doesn’t eat anything she didn’t buy and prepare herself – or that he’s going to break any laws or stab her in the back.
Fic: Cages and Keys
Part 3 of my Mad Swan series ‘Skeptics and True Believers’, featuring Mr Gold and ice cream. Unfortunately not in the same scene, but still. Follows on from ‘Patchwork Sanctuary’
(full chapter listing at my master list)
Cages and Keys
She has to go and pick up Henry.
Regina calls her – that’s the weirdest thing all on its own – and says that Henry’s sick and she can’t collect him, and while it’s killing her to ask this, she needs her help.
As Sheriff, she occasionally has to ferry sick kids home from school: it’s never been her own kid before. The idea of picking him up from school, of having some actual time with him without Regina’s watchful, judgmental eyes, brings a new brightness to her smile, a spring to her step.
