My oh-so-humble thoughts
Okay so I found this as I was scrolling through the Captain Swan Forever Facebook page. I was a little iffy because I’ve been kinda meh on OUAT fics lately (I’m writing this in late January, so you can probably tell why.) Anyhoo-I clicked through and grew even more iffy because it’s on AO3, and I tend to get annoyed with…something over there.

However, I powered through my irritation and I’m soooo glad I did! This was such an awesome short fic. It’s only 5 chapters, but it’s long enough to give you *the feels*. And I mean the warm fuzzy kind that make you want to just squee wildly.

She’s absolutely nailed the characterization for the most parts, but the parts that are a smidge OOC are vastly improved I think. Specifically Snow-Snow in the show is pissing me off, but she’s actually managed to make me like her. A great feat. And the humor is completely awesome! Not like overly hilarious, but that subtle kind of funny that I find myself thinking of hours later. Then I’m chuckling at nothing and everyone thinks I’m crazy so…yeah.

So it’s worth the read-it’s not a huge undertaking. But you should go leave love and comments-or whatever it is on AO3-and definitely enjoy lovelies!!!
