Emma must adjust to the life of a fairy tale Princess while she raises her son. At the ball given by Ella and Thomas, she meets her true love once again. But even fairy tale life isn’t all that simple. Shadows of Emma’s past (Henry’s Father) and their connections to an unexpected person give her new life a shaky start.

FIC: Redemption of a Heart: The Stable Girl [PG-NC17, big bang]

Redemption of a Heart: The Stable Girl
Author: ariestess
Artist(s): theonlyspl

Word Count: Word says 30383, AO3 says 30281
Rating: PG-NC17 [varies by chapter]
Summary: As the case against Mary Margaret grows, we finally learn the reason why Regina hates Snow White/Mary Margaret so much. But with a twist.
Author’s Disclaimer: "Once Upon a Tme," the characters, and situations depicted are the property of Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis, Kitsis/Horowitz, and ABC Studios. This piece of fan fiction was created for entertainment not monetary purposes. Previously unrecognized characters and places, and this story, are copyrighted to the author. Any similarity to real persons, living or dead, is coincidental and not intended by the author. This site is in no way affiliated with "Once Upon a Time," ABC, or any representatives of the actors.
Notes: This story has been a long time in the making. In fact, ever since I first heard about the episode "The Stable Boy", I have wanted to do this rewrite. It just took some time to plan out the changes and such. And then I kept finding new ideas to add in for later episodes in the first season. And thus, a new series was born. There will be more to this soon enough.

I have been doing nothing but actively obsessing over this story for at least 3 months now, even though it's been in my head longer. So many ideas, so many threads to weave together, and so very little time. LOL! I think it was the "Please, I'll be good" line of Regina's that really endeared this episode and this character to me. I wanted to explore her background in more detail, including the obvious abuse, and putting a femslash spin on it seemed logical to me. I can say that I'd considered doing this story initially with the characters as they were in the episode, but the femslash angle felt more appropriate.

The idea of joining the Regina/Emma relationship in media res, so to speak, amused and pleased me in a lot of ways. I may well go back and explore the earlier moments in their relationship. We'll see…

Dedication: My muses, as always…

Thanks to: Once Upon A Time Transcripts, for the transcript I used for some scenes in this story; theonlyspl, for being an AWESOME cheerleader; confessoralana, for finding the shot of Emma that was used in theonlyspl's graphic; Jane Espenson, for the writing sprint on Twitter last week; Lana Parrilla and Jennifer Morrison, for creating such absolutely compelling characters that I wanted to explore further; Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis, for creating this show that I adore so much; and shatterpath, for always being my cheerleader, and for putting up with this wacky obsession of mine. Y'all rock!

Beta: Many, MANY thanks to luscious_words for the beta job on this beast. You are a goddess rock star, my friend. I SO owe you… Thanks also to [profile] traxsit for the additional beta eyes. You rock for doing this when life was throwing you curve balls. And all remaining mistakes are completely and utterly my own fault.

If You Go Into The Woods...by ladyoneill, NC17

Mea culpa. I forgot to join the comm until last night and so didn't get posting access till this morning. I did post the fic on my journal yesterday.

If You Go Into The Woods...
Author: Lara aka ladyoneill
Artist(s): evian_fork
Link to art: Coming soon
Word Count: 4780
Rating: NC17
Summary: After Graham's death, Emma begins having dreams of him dressed in leathers and stalking her through unfamiliar forests. The dreams become more and more seductive and Emma begins sleeping more and more until she finally begins to wonder just what is a dream and what is reality.
Disclaimer: I don't own Once Upon A Time or any of the characters; just borrowing them for non-profit use.
Notes: Het sex, Emma/Huntsman, not quite a happily ever after. My first foray into this fandom, so I hope it doesn't suck. It came surprisingly easy to me and I found myself struggling to keep it under the 5000 limit for the mini-bang.
