In which Jared mimicked Robbie’s walk
So, I know we all want Emma to find out about what Hook said to Neal, about backing off for Henry’s sake and not wanting to get in the way of them being a family. Well, I thought it be quite interesting if it was Neal of all people who tell her and so of course…the writer in me had to do it.
I’m not 100% happy with it and I might have rushed it a bit, but it at least gives you an idea of what I hope happens. ENJOY!
Neal came up next to Emma as the group began to make their way out of the cemetery. “Are you okay?”
“I really wish people would stop asking me that,” she muttered but then sighed when she realized how bitchy she sounded. “Sorry…I’ve had a rough couple of…”
“Yeah…we can go with that.” She cleared her throat as she hunched her shoulders. “About today…I’m sorry I…”
“Please…Emma…you don’t have to do that.” He paused her by simply touching her shoulder briefly. “It’s okay…a part of me knew you weren’t going to show up.”
“I’m not ready for any of that, Neal…I know it was just a harmless lunch but to me if felt like if I did show up, I would have been giving you false hope.”
He laughed softly as he shook his head. “Stop apologizing, Emma…I am the last person you should be apologizing to…and to be honest…I was somewhat relieved when you didn’t show.”
Her eyes shot up in surprise. “Relieved?” she asked as she quickly shifted her eyes to see that everyone had kept going but Hook and Tink, who were standing a few feet away waiting for them.
“I had a lot of time to think while waiting for you at that booth and the more time had passed the more and more I realized that I’m not quite ready either.” He sighed as he shoved his hands in his pockets. “I started to think about Tamara…and my relationship with her…I loved her, despite everything and I…I guess I need time to deal with all that.”
“You haven’t had time to mourn,” she realized. “I definitely know what that’s like.”
He gave a little shrug. “With everything that’s going on, Henry is what’s most important and stopping Pan and this…curse.”
“Well, then let’s get to it,” she said firmly as she began to walk towards Hook and Tink, but once again Neal stopped her. “What?”
He sighed as he looked over at Hook, who was currently looking at Emma…he was always looking at Emma. “There’s something you should know…about Hook.”
“Hook?” She gave him a bored look. “Why would I care about…?”
“Emma, you looked over at Hook every five seconds during our conversation.”
She took in a deep breath as she looked over at him and then sighed as she stared at the ground. “Neal…”
“He told me at the diner that he was going to back off.”
Her head shot up. “What?”
“For Henry’s sake…he told me he wasn’t going to get in the way of our chance to be a family.”
Emma felt her heart begin to race. “He said that?”
“Yes…and the only reason I’m telling you this is that you have that look in your eyes when you look at him…you think he’s going to do what I did…you think he’s going to leave you…but he’s not. Even if you did show up at that diner…even if we did try this again…he still wouldn’t leave you. I believe his words were, I’m in this for the long haul.”
She was only half listening to him as her eyes met Hook once more and stayed there. He was going to back off…because he thought it was the right thing to do…for Henry and for her. He was constantly putting her first and it continued to surprise her.
She finally made her way over them keeping her eyes on Hook as she vaguely heard Neal follow her. “What’s the problem, Swan?”
She almost smiled at that. For some odd reason, that statement was more comforting than, Are you okay? “I could start a list, but…let’s just focus on one problem at a time.”
“As you wish.”
Her heart skipped a beat…just like it always did when he said those words to her…but it also calmed her. He was there with her…beside her and he was in this for the long haul. “Then let’s go stop Pan…once and for all.”

”So, tell me this, love, when do you have time off to take a stroll with your dashing young suitor?”
So when they are talking about the new curse the camera shifts to Emma as she asks Gold if it can be broken. Then a shoulder comes into frame.
If you blink you miss it.
But since Killian is standing behind her, it’s my headcanon that he moves closer to her. It’s just a natural instinct for…

"That look in his eyes, the despair ..I had it back when I was in the foster system. Just a lost little girl, who didn’t matter and didn’t think she ever would. A little girl who cried herself to sleep at night because she wanted her parents so bad and could never understand why they gave her up.”
Sorry this took so long…
"May I have this dance?"
He held his hand out towards her with a flourish - a wicked twinkle in his eyes. Her eyes widened in surprise; she hadn’t taken him for the dancing type. Cautiously she nodded and took his proffered hand, a half smile twitching at the corner of her lips. This should be interesting.
The swell of music from the string quartet began to fill the grand room - elaborately decorated as it was for Belle and Rumple’s wedding festivities. As he led her to the dance floor she felt her stomach leap a little. She had never really danced with a man - not like this (bar room bump and grind didn’t really count she figured.)
Once they reached the centre of the dance floor, the music began to quicken. Deftly he took her left hand in his and and held it up towards his shoulder - his hooked hand looping around her waist. Without hesitation he began to softly sway her body in time with the music, his eyes fixed on hers as his feet moved lightly to the beat. He was spinning her around: her heart caught in her throat a little - what on Earth was this?
Inside her head began to twirl and her body felt light as a feather, bending to his will. Suddenly he dipped her over his arm, her back curving against him under the flickering lights of the glitter ball above them. He caught her eye, giving her a devilishly handsome smile that she couldn’t help but reciprocate.
Eventually the music slowed and he pulled her close; she linked her arms around his neck and began to move with him in time to the mellow beat.
"Wow - you’re got some moves there Hook."
"It’s been a while Swan, but they say you never forget," he leaned in towards her, only a tiny sliver of air between their bodies.
"How did you-"
"Learn?" he interjected. "King’s Navy love, an officer needs many skills - on and off the ship."
A smile passed between the two. What else did she not know about this man?
"Well I’m impressed," she admitted (and she swore he blushed a little under the half light of the ballroom.)
The last notes faded away and he stepped back from her, sweeping into a deep bow and placing a small, chaste kiss on her hand; but the way he looked at her was anything but chaste.
"Perhaps another later?" he asked.
"Perhaps," smiled, giving him one last coy glance before returning to her table.
What she really wanted to say was, you try and stop me.
Anyone wanna do a scene where Emma tries to teach Killian how to properly use a gun now that she’s made him her Deputy? And he just tries to distract her by flirting and trying to hold her from behind while she’s demonstrating how to load a gun?
and we could pretend that they’re a couple
I mean we’ve had fics where Killian teaches her how to use a sword, why not have her teach him for a change?
Please and thank you if anyone goes for it!
Captain Swan + handling “foreign” weapons
Why can’t we have scenes of those two teaching each other how to use them properly. Both would be great. Killian would flirt with Emma the whole way through while she’s trying to teach him how to load a gun or aim properly or something like that. She’d then eye roll, but he’d see the secret smile on her face as she turns her face away from him. Then he’d tease her and she’d blush and tell him to shut and concentrate while trying to hold down a blush at getting caught.
I NEED this now
Hey, fanfic writers… just a little nudge, y’know what I mean?
The way Emma looks at Hook now. A request by happinessisblooming.
