All of these songs remind me of Emma and Hook in various ways, so I tried to put them in quasi-chronological order in which their mood spoke to me. There’s a few gaps and the work below might not represent every song. The subheadings/numbers correspond with the songs. (side note: I have been in various fandoms since I was a teenager, and the whole songfic thing always made me roll my eyes, even then. I tried to avoid actual lyrics in the work, but I still rolled my eyes to myself, a bit chagrined, when I realized just what I was doing…)
It’s taken a long time, but she knows who she is. She doesn’t need anyone. Daily, she uses her body, her strength, her fists, her brain, and it feels good. It’s physical and gratifying, getting one over on criminals like Neal who try to avoid their consequences. At first, she tried to pretend it wasn’t personal, but the rush was too much to ignore. Her mentor told her it’s the ones with a chip on their shoulder that make the best bondsmen. No one is getting away from her.
CSSS: Helloooo!! I am your secret survivor!! I posted part 1 of your gift just now- I hope you like it! Also, yay, I get to follow you now! It's been so nice talking to you!
I AM SO HAPPY TO MEET YOUUU! YOU ARE AWESOME AND I’VE LOVED TALKING TO YOU <3!!!!
Going to check the gift now! EEEEP
I’m so glad you liked it! Let me know what you think of the mix because I am a music nerd and feel like you miiight be too! I love fanmixes so it was fun. Also now I feel like we can talk more freely. Did you see me lurking on your page in the beginning? I only realized I could go to your tumblr incognito after like a week or two, lol (and that the ‘biggest fans’ section could give me away). Not so good at being sneaky. But I love your blog! I’m glad I get to follow now!

This is for my Captain Swan Secret Survivor, lovestruckswan! I was excited when I learned that we had some of the same taste in music and took the opportunity to make you a fanmix, and also mess around with photo editing for the first time basically ever. The image is really basic, I know, but I had fun with it, and I hope you like it! I also wrote a few drabbles that kind of defend/go along with my mix - I’ll post that later today because I want this to have its own post first.
You are the best, lovely! I had fun being your CSSS. Sorry it’s a day late! I hope you didn’t think I forgot about you!PS if anyone wants to reblog please feel free to delete the personal notes
AU where Belle slowly turns evil and all her earnest questions to Rumple are actually furthering her sordid plot to take over all of Storybrooke and eventually the enchanted forest
