Prompt by mirror—mirror-onthewall: Swan queen, Emma finds out why Regina hates snow white.
Fandom: Once Upon a Time
Summary: A chance meeting in the enchanted wood brings about an unexpected turn of events.
A/N: This is something I’ve wanted to post for a while now (it’s long over due, sorry mirror—mirror-onthewall!). damelola also asked for fic in her ask box and I’ve been meaning to give this to her. It wouldn’t fit so I’m posting it here.
This is…trippy and probably not what the prompter expected. I took a lot of liberties with the prompt but I definitely, without a doubt, enjoyed writing this. It’s inspired by several half-baked ideas, fandom meta, and not a small amount of fantasy/sci-fi literature.
In a land far, far away…
She sputters, her mouth lined with salt and the fishy tang of the ocean.
A stranger looms over her. “Oh, thank goodness you’re alive!”
“Wha…where am I?”
“The sea,” was the simple reply as she was hauled into a rickety boat.
Prompt by thewhitestars
A/N: I, well…okay. I guess it says a lot that my first attempt at writing for the OUAT fandom is a Swan Queen mini fic rated NC-17. This definitely went farther than I expected (whoops).
Established Swan Queen and absolutely PWP. Call it practice for the next prompts.
Thank you to all the wonderful mini fic writers who keep me sane during this soul-crushing postgrad. I feel obliged to return the favour.
“Fetch me a salad on your way to the council meeting,” the voice from the receiver drawled. She inserted a belated, “dear,” to sweeten the request.
Emma rolled her eyes. “Seriously, Regina? Do you get a kick out of asking your Sheriff to fetch you food every single time?”
“Not my Sheriff. Just you.”
Emma smiled despite herself. “Any particular requests?”
“I want olives in it.” There was an expectant pause before Regina added in a suggestively hoarse voice, “Please.”
Emma pressed her forehead against her hand, fighting the warmth crawling up her spine.
“You’ll be the death of me,” Emma hissed as Regina chuckled on the other end. “See you in fifteen.”
The OUAT Swan Queen mini fic spam has really taken off! I’ve read a number of great stories and figured, why not join in the fun? I was apprehensive at first, seeing that I’ve only been in Tumblr a few weeks. I’ve only ever lurked! But, I’ve just recently watched the first few episodes and absolutely enjoy the tension between Emma and Regina.
So, if any of you have prompts for me, then I’d definitely pick a few up and write you something. Right now, I’m limited to writing Emma and Regina. Drop your requests at my ask box! It’s about time I contributed to this awesome fandom.
