Pretty much sums it up. ;D
In which it’s suggested that those attending dress up as though they are characters from Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass.
I’m going as my take on the dormouse.
I’ve put together an outfit that I think will work, but, I’m not sure about how to make the ears. :/ I was thinking of starting with a headband and adding to that, but I don’t know what to make the ears out of. :S
orangetigger asked: Hi! I would love to see the first moments of the aftermath of a TLK between Emma and Killian. Also I love love love your baseball AU!
I’m sorry I know you probably wanted fluff, but I was only capable of angst tonight.
She doesn’t kiss him right away.
She knows she should – knows that’s what the others want her to do (the look on her father’s face is heartbreaking as he quietly suggests it, the hope nearly doing her in because he wants this for her, wants her to find her happy ending).
But Hook’s cold and lifeless body on a hospital bed is not her happy ending. The machines beep around him, steady and sure, and she wants to roll her eyes because they know what’s wrong. These monitors aren’t going to fix the thing that is keeping his eyes closed and chest still.
He is asleep.
He has been for days.
Her fingers trail along his skin and she wonders if he’s burning where he is – if he’s waiting for her (and she knows without a doubt that he is because that is exactly what he does best – wait for her). Desperation and anxiety claw at her chest and she leans forward, her lips a whispers breath away from his. If he were awake she would be able to feel the warm puff of his exhalations, the spicy scent that lingers on him when he is animated and full of life.
But he is asleep, and she doesn’t feel a thing (she feels everything – she feels too much).
She pulls back and leaves the room.
This caught my heart up in my throat and a hitch in my breath. Excellently written, in all the best anguish-filled ways.
