Fic: The Eye Of The Beholder (3/4)

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 3

It’s ironic, Belle thinks bitterly as she walks away from the castle, down the road and away from home, that she should regain her sight only to be sent to stumble in the dark, half blinded by tears.

The moon is out, at least, lighting her way. It hasn’t changed - and why would it? - since she saw it last, as a child in her father’s palace. The sight is comforting: the moon shines over her home as well, and over Rumpelstiltskin, and now she can see it as bright as he, as clear as he, for what good it does her.

Fic: Needful

Title: Needful
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Rumpelstiltskin is away on a deal, and Belle gets lonely.

A/N: So a while back Sco and I were talking about smut ideas, and we talked about what could be done with a magic mirror. It’s also a belated birthday present to both Sco and Cal, because I love them both very much, and they’re also the biggest smut fans I know :D

It’s part of my Not Quite Yet series, between ‘Too Long On The Vine' and 'Master or Lover’, but all you need to know is that Belle and Rumpelstiltskin are in the Dark Castle, and have a sexual relationship without being in True Love yet.


Rumpelstiltskin was away; he hadn’t thought to tell her where he’d gone.

Belle didn’t care to know, either. It was easier not to ask, and to busy herself sewing or reading while he was away than to know and wonder if he’d lied. If he’d actually gone to steal a child from its mothers arms, or to murder a man in his sleep, spill blood on cold cobblestones for some wicked magic. Belle did not want to know Rumpelstiltskin’s secrets, and so she did not ask.

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.

Summary: Ouran HSHC crossover - Belle French, a transfer freshman at the elite private school, Storybrooke Prep, finds an unexpected group of students while looking for a place to study

Fic: Comfort In Words

Title: Comfort In WordsRating: very NC-17
Pairing: Bay Gold/Graham Hunter
Summary: Bay and Graham go shopping for books; no books are found

A/N: So this is actually a really smutty prequel to my Bay/Graham and Rumbelle fic that’s sort of college!AU. But this alone is basically just your straight up college!AU. With a lot of smut. Bay looks like this because I started this well before Nealfire.

For Fyre because she promised me Rutherglens in return.


Bay Gold had discovered, through a good few months of trying desperately to be clandestine, that Graham Hunter had a certain exhibitionist streak to him.

Title: Yellow (Sunbeams, blondes, and lemon shampoo)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Baelfire was running away, but Neal prefers to chase. He starts another new life in another new world. Swan thief.

A/N: WOOO FINALLY NEAL POV. Thank you Manhattan! For Celina, but let’s face it, all my swan thief fics are for her :)

Baelfire’s only been in this world without magic for a few days, and he hates it already.

It’s a disappointment: it has taken him so much longer than he’d expected to get here, and he’s been dreaming of settling someplace far away from fairies and magic and the dark for so long. He wanted to get to this place, the world he was promised so very long ago, and know peace.

Fic: Cuffed

Title: Cuffed
Rating: very NC-17
Summary: Rumple’s knack with handcuffs comes in handy.

A/N: A smut piece I’ve been working on for months and never got finished, now done and dusted in honour of my lovely twin! ASSISTANT DIRECTOR AND SHE’S JUST A FRESHMAN THAT DESERVED SOME CELEBRATING OK.

It’s set in some nebulous time after ‘Crocodile’ but before ‘Outsider’. So maybe around ‘Cricket Game’.


Belle slept over last night.

Rumpelstiltskin can barely believe it. It’s been months since she strode out of the mines, since he told her the truth and said goodbye. He had honestly assumed, in that moment, that he’d never see her again. Or worse, that she would be a private ghost, someone desperately yearned for, seen every day, from whom he was always barred.

Ficlet: Ashes and Lime

Title: Ashes and Lime
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: 2x15 ‘Manhattan’

A little Nealfire ficlet for Celina, who prompted ‘Neal’s pov from after Emma leaves him at the bar’. This came out a lot more Rumple-centric than Swan Thief, but it’s all there!


There’s not a lot I remember about my father that doesn’t suck

Emma’s face when he’d said that… gods above, it was the weirdest mix of understanding and horror that Neal had ever seen. As if she hadn’t, all those years ago, been the only person in this whole fucking universe - this world, and the last, and knowing his luck, the next as well - who could see through all his own bullshit. As if she believed him.

Fic: Reasons

Title: Reasons
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Bae’s teacher offers to come over and fix his computer over the winter break; they get snowed in.

A/N: pure happy fluff to celebrate one whole year of Rumbelle. Remix of ‘Chalkdust’, but no need to read that first. No FTland backstory, Bae is twelve and Belle is his teacher.


This was a bad idea, Gold thought, a bad, bad idea.

But Bae had computer trouble, and it was beyond even his extensive skill to fix. His father was no use: Gold hadn’t even a computerised till at the shop, and did all of his accounts by hand: he wouldn’t know a keyboard from a modem if they walked up and introduced themselves.

To be honest, there’s a lot of (awesome) talk about what should happen when Ariel appears on Once.

So instead of adding to that, when Marchie’s pretty much covered all the best kind of ground with it, I’d like to put another matter forward: Sebastian.

I’d like to put in a bid for hot, as shirtless as possible and with dreadlocks. Something along the lines of

Because I know it’s a Twilight promo shot but come on, can you imagine him singing Under The Sea?

If Once can give me a sexy Sebastian I’ll be happy :D

Fic: Harmless - Chapter 13

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: It’s been months and months, I know, but here it is! Because this fic is nominated as Best Woobie!Rum in the TEAs, and I thought that deserved another chapter. So enjoy dearies!

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 15 - Chapter 16


Chapter 13


Rumpelstiltskin wishes, oh how he wishes, that he had been the one to volunteer to go alone, and that Bae could have stayed with Belle.

Someone has to go to collect their cart and horses, and splitting up is safer than travelling together. But logic does little to soothe Rumpelstiltskin’s mind.

Fic: Stranger (6/6)

AU: Belle remembers everything about their old life, and finally gains freedom from her asylum prison. But Rumpelstiltskin is nowhere to be found: in his place is an oblivious pawnbroker who is as cursed as everyone else in Storybrooke.

Chapter 1 - Chapter 2 - Chapter 3 - Chapter 4 - Chapter 5 - Chapter 6

Chapter 6

Gold had assumed that, when the time came for Belle to come out of his home and into the world, he would be the one holding her hand, leading her, showing her.
