Anonymous asked: Prompt: pregnant Regina + angst :)

"Regina?" he asks, knuckles tapping against the bathroom door. "Regina, may I come in?"

He receives a tired hum in response, and knows her well enough to feel comfortable that it’s an invitation. She’s in the bath facing the door, folded in half, hands around her legs, chin on her knees. She doesn’t look sad—more…apathetic, and that scares him more than anything. He walks over to the tub, dropping to sit beside it, the air around it cool; the water must not be even lukewarm at this point. Regina does nothing to acknowledge his presence.

He lifts one hand, hovers over her knee, then lets his palm rest there, her skin damp and cold beneath his. His thumb runs back and forth over her thigh, the skin warming under his touch, and he waits, silent, his own legs bent, his free hand around his knees, an opposite mirror to her posture.

"My cycle’s late again," she tells him. He perks up at that, sits a little straighter, and she must notice because she backs away, the water sloshing onto Robin’s arm. “Nothing will come of it, Robin,” she sighs, turning her face away from him.

"You don’t know that," he argues, his weight on his knees now, so that he can lean over the side of the tub to catch her hand.

"I do know it.” She turns to him with pained and pleading eyes. “Could you—not be an optimist right now. Please?”

He heaves a sigh. (It’s grown hard for him, too, two years of trying to have a child has left them absolutely nowhere, and the excitement of each possible pregnancy has ground down into the expectation of disappointment.)

"Would you at least get out of that freezing bath?" he requests.

"Fine," she relents, turning away again.

He stands and returns a moment later with a plush cream towel, wrapping her firmly in it as she steps out of the water, and when she shivers, he embraces her, towel and all, her head pressing into his chest as she finally, finally lets herself cry.

He rubs her back, completely unashamed at the tears that begin to fall down his own cheeks. “It’ll happen,” he promises. “When it’s meant to.”

Her words are muffled, “And if it doesn’t?”

"We both have plenty of people to love. But don’t give up hope, okay? We happened, didn’t we? When we were meant to?"

She smiles at that, pulling back so she can smile at him and she thinks she’ll deal with the humiliation of another pregnancy test tomorrow, and for tonight be satisfied in all the beauty and love she has.

(When she finally faces taking the test, two days later, it’s positive.)

I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.

someonethatiamnot asked: "How did you get this?" he asks one night, as they lie cuddled in bed, both in warm pajamas to keep the winter chill at bay, legs tangled, her head cradled on his arm. His finger has just run softly over the deep scar on her lip, a rare blemish on a body so easily healed by magic. She looks away from him, down, her voice barely a whisper when she tells him, "My mother," and Robin burns with anger. "How old were you?" he asks. "Four," she answers. He asks why. "I'm a disappointment." "Not to me."


"Not to me."

ninzied asked: your mind is a beautiful thing. but that's not an assumption, just fact. (i do assume you are fiercely loyal, strong-willed and self-reliant; and that you love deeply, which is maybe a part of what draws you to a character such as regina.)

Aww thanks.


Loyal, yes. Strong-willed definite yes. Self-reliant yes.

I love deeply for sure, or, put differently, I have a difficult time growing close to people, but a desire to grow very close to my friends and family, and a desire for a small number of significant relationships rather than a large number of passing ones, and once I am close with someone it takes a lot for me to become unattached. I do think this is definitely part of why I am so drawn to Regina.

Anonymous asked: Give me five sentence drabble prompts - Free. Hope you feel better soon!

Thank you. Fair warning: M-ish. Also probably not what you expected, but I have a feeling you won’t mind. ;)

"The door—" Robin pants against Regina’s lips, groaning as she digs fingernails into his chest and shoulders and shoves his jacket off, "is it—?"

One of her hands leaves him for half a second to gesture in the vague direction of her office door, the lock clicking into place.

He lifts her onto her desk with both hands, then begins to skim them over her thighs as she wraps her legs around him, kicking her stilettos to the ground.

 ”Couldn’t someone still—?” he breathes, his words trailing off as she lifts her hips into his.

"Let them," she trails her toes up the back of his leg, "It’s been nine days since—"

"Ten actually," he corrects, palms flat on the desk on either side of her, their lips meeting in kiss after kiss, each one longer than the last.

globotheque asked: drabble prompt: first birthday :)

I’m going to take this not in the way you probably meant it because that is my specialty. 

The first birthday of which Regina has any memories, they are of a lavish ball in a shiny gown, sparkling jewelry, her mother’s proud smile.

She hates her birthday ball every year, the way her mother fusses, not at all for her daughter’s pleasure, but for her agreeability to others. After the age of thirteen, Cora even refuses her daughter a taste of her own cake—she must be thin, and beautiful, and give the attending noblemen no idea of the beautiful girl as a person with an appetite.

Her first (and only) birthday with Daniel she does not mind so much. Each year marks a step closer to an age when she imagines she might safely run away with him, and the night after her ball she sneaks away to the stables for the surprise of a cake that he made just for her. (She gets to eat that one.)

Time stops after that, her birthdays with the king. He does not know, does not mark them, does not care, and neither does she, for every year passed is a year more since she was last with Daniel, another year of her captivity. She tries to forget the date as much as the people around her try to give it no notice.

On Henry’s first birthday, she has no one with whom to celebrate but the boy himself, and yet celebrate she does. He grows, and grows, and though for her, time does not move and she does not age, yet each new year of Henry’s is a reminder of the blessing he has been in her life; time passes well enough.

She makes some note with her son of her own birthday, when he grows old enough to ask.

But it is not until years later, after time truly moves for Storybrooke once more, after she misses one of his birthdays in the Enchanted Forest and stares blankly at the ceiling for another sleepless night, after the proper timeline is destroyed and struggled with and put to rights, that the word celebrate might be used to describe the anniversary of her birth.

Her mayor’s mansion, once so sterile and empty, fills for the night with friends and family and loves. Henry and Roland had made her breakfast in bed this morning, burnt and cold but perfect nonetheless, and as the party wears down, Robin catches her waist, drops a kiss behind her ear, promising a private and blissful celebration of their own later tonight.

And for maybe the first time in her life, rather than fearing what changes the next year might bring, what the passage of time might do, she looks towards the next year of her life with hope and open arms.
