Granny: So let me see if I’ve got this right—
Granny: No, Ruby. Let me see if I understand. You two have been carrying on under my roof for a month, and blaming the… noticeable eau de sex on Emma and the Evil Queen?
Ruby: To be fair, they have slept here.
Granny: Meanwhile, you’ve decided that you’re in love, and want to move in together… and want me to help protect you from what will no doubt be a very, very unhappy Rumplestiltskin?
Belle: That’s about the sum of it, yeah.
Granny: Well, of course I will! Did you really think you had to ask?
Ruby: You’re not mad? You’re not… disappointed?
Granny: Child, I just want to see you happy. You could do worse than a pretty girl who loves to read and compliments everything I cook.
Belle: It’s the best food I’ve ever tasted! Well, apart from last week, when Regina made us las—
Ruby: Granny, you’re the greatest! (throws herself into a hug)
Granny: Now, you will have to do something about the Dark One, ladies. He doesn’t take losing very well.
Belle: He would never hurt me.
Ruby: I don’t think he’d care so much about taking me to the pound, though.
Granny: You know who we have to ask for help, don’t you?
Ruby: Please say Snow and Charming.
Belle and Granny: Regina and Emma.
Granny: Which is going to be a lot harder after I threw them out yesterday for breaking a headboard. Something I now understand is your handiwork.
Belle: We’ll apologize to them. I’m sure they’ll understand.
Granny: In the meantime, why don’t I get you two some cheeseburgers? Worrying burns a lot of calories, you know.
Belle: Thank you, Mrs Lucas.
Granny: Now, come on. If you’re Ruby’s girl, you call me Granny, too.
Belle: Thank you, Granny.
This entire exchange was fucking monumental for Regina, and the fact that it has yet to be (and probably will never be) acknowledged by anyone, including Henry, will never cease to make me irrationally angry. This was HUGE for her, okay? She recognized that she was becoming her mother and she pulled herself back. She pulled herself back. She was so terrified of making Cora’s mistakes, of trapping her son in the same hell that her own childhood had been, that she did what no one believed she could. She let go. She trusted her child and she let him go. And no one cared.
I doubt Snow and Emma even know this happened. In my opinion, the biggest mistake the show made was having the bulk of Regina’s development this season (this exchange with Henry, the entire episode with Daniel, etc.) take place while the two people who most needed to see it were out of the picture. Emma and Snow are both still operating under the assumption that Regina is essentially the same woman she was the day the curse broke, and since Charming and Henry don’t seem to be in any rush to fill them in, they’re probably never going to know what she went through in their absence. Which is bullshit, because if anyone needs to see and come to terms with this side of Regina, it’s them. It should’ve been Snow in that stable with her when Daniel came back, and it should’ve been Emma watching as she gave this speech to their son. YOU HAD ONE FUCKING JOB, SHOW. ONE. JOB.
ok well-played sq fandom # if they had been in a relationship during the first season # you could imagine Regina saying this to her as Emma starts finding concrete evidence that she cursed everyone # and the curse is ending and people are going to tell Emma that Regina’s evil and Regina knows this # and above all else she just can’t let Emma believe them # because if Emma loses faith in her she knows she’ll be lost # so she tells her ‘no matter what they say I do love you’ # where did this come from I don’t even ship them in the show???? # headcanon vomit # Once Upon A Time # Swan Queen
well that was uncalled for. *sobs quietly*
Summary: One of ‘em “Emma apologizes to Regina for The Cricket Game” stories
This one’s really well written. I actually hope for a sequel at some point.
If anyone’s got more, please please share.
This one is wonderful. The author also writes R&I, and the one I read (post-ep for that ridiculous Jane gets kidnapped by TJ from Gilmore Girls) is fantastic.
So it’s like…I really do love Regina, and I really do want her to have her redemption and for Emma and the Charmings to forgive her and welcome her into their family and for Henry to love her
and swan queen to be canon
But then there’s another part of me that really just wants Regina and Cora to team up as an epic mother-daughter duo and fuck up all the shit in a glorious display of magical rage-power
IT WOULD BE AWESOME
