I had an idea…

worryinglyinnocent:

What if Neal didn’t trust August and said ‘yeah… no. If there’s a curse Emma has to break and a place she has to be, I’ll get her there myself, thanks’.

He’s had enough dealings with magic to believe August, and enough dealings with magic to know that sometimes a non-magical solution is better.

So he doesn’t leave Emma, and grabs her just before the cops do, and they make their way towards Tallahassee. Life’s hard, two thieves living on the edge, but they make it work, and after all, they’ve got each other. About a month later, Emma finds out she’s pregnant, and eight months after that, just as they finally reach Tallahassee and start making the home they dreamed of, Henry arrives.

Emma and Neal go straight and end up in the business of tracking down missing persons and reuniting families, because really, that’s what they both want to do for themselves, but they think it’s impossible, so they help others as best they can.

A few months before Emma’s 28th birthday, a package arrives in the mail for Henry. It’s postmarked from Storybrooke, Maine, and it turns out to be a book.

Once Upon A Time

For Emma and Henry, it’s just a book, but for Neal, he knows the significance, and he knows what he has to do. It’s time to get Emma to the place she needs to be to break the curse and reunite her with her family.

So Neal contrives a case in Maine and they all make their way up the East Coast to Storybrooke, and they arrive on Emma’s 28th birthday. Neal knows the town for what it is as he’s had experience with magic. Emma and Henry can’t recognise a curse but they know that something’s not right in the town.

They check into the bed and breakfast.

"Could I have your names please?" Granny asks.

"Neal and Emma Cassidy, and this is our son, Henry."

"Emma… What a lovely name."

And Neal turns, because he’d recognise his father’s voice anywhere…

As a french woman I can say two thing : 

First : Colette is an old frist name, and by that I mean that you’ll probably find more grandma named Colette than little girl

Two : Colette French is the most “Frenchiest” name I’ve ever seen. She would be called France French that it would be least obvious. 

Well this is from the people that brought us Queen Regina (Queen Queen) and a green woman named Zelena (Green Green!) French French is just following a long and noble tradition. I fully expect Elizabeth Mitchell’s character’s name to be something that means cold or icy or something.

It sounds like a stand-up joke: Queen Queen, Green Green, and French French walk into a bar …

If Ma Belle and Cora Were Sisters

  • Ma Belle:

    How's my sister Cora doing?

  • Rumple:

    I MAY have contributed to her demise.

  • Ma Belle:

    Oh no! And her charming husband?

  • Rumple:

    Their daughter Regina crushed his heart.

  • Ma Belle:

    Oh no!

  • Rumple:

    But Cora had another daughter--

  • Ma Belle:

    Oh yes?

  • Rumple:

    . . . who I stabbed to death for killing my son.

  • Ma Belle:

    Oh no!

  • Rumple:

    I tried to kill Regina once, too, but now we're cool because my grandson is her adopted son.

  • Ma Belle:

    Oh yes?

  • Rumple:

    But you're not going to be happy with Regina because she MAY have imprisoned your daughter for 30 years.

  • Ma Belle:

    Oh no!

  • Rumple:

    But don't worry, your daughter is safe now.

  • Ma Belle:

    Oh yes?

  • Rumple:

    I married her!

  • Ma Belle:

    *faints*
