So Happy Christmas Eve to all who celebrate and Happy Holidays for everyone who celebrates something different and Happy Thursday for those who don’t celebrate at all.

Enjoy lovelies!

Day 1 // #25DaysOfChristmas

Hey lovelies! So, as I posted a few days ago, I’m gonna post every day of December up until Christmas. Think of it as fandom/hotness countdown if you will. :)

I’ll either post a new chapter, one shot, drabble or some sexy pics. Either way I figured y’all wouldn’t mind.

And today, December 1, is a new chapter of The Blushing Swan! I’m trying to venture out into some of my old neglected fics, so brace yourselves. :) As always, click the banner to go to the story and the link to go to the new chapter.

The Blushing Swan // Chapter 4: A New Game

According to MissRissa you may need a cigarette after this, so be forewarned. But I figured I’d start y’all off with a bang. *wink, wink*

Enjoy lovelies and Happy December!

 

Story Spotlight: A Spoonful of Jell-o

Title: A Spoonful of Jell-o
Author: hooksjollyroger
Fandom: Once Upon a Time
Rating: K+
AU/Canon/AH: canon
Complete? yes

Summary: Emma introduces Hook to the strange and bewildering substance of Jell-O. Based on the deleted Jell-O scene from episode 212 “In the Name of the Brother” as seen on the season 2 Blu-Ray/DVD special features.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
Okay so the deleted jello scene-if you haven’t seen it, YouTube that shit. Now. I’ll wait.

Okay you’re back! So Hook’s reaction to jello is nearly identical to my Munchkin’s. He’s 4 and we eat a pretty organic, natural type diet. He’d never seen Jello until earlier this year. It was hilarious, much like Killian’s reaction in this fic.

I’m a sucker for Captain Swan adorableness anyways, but this was a particularly well done one shot. :) So great on over and give it a read. She’s got a crap load of other fics as well-ones that I think I’m gonna go read like…now. Happy reading lovelies!!

Story Spotlight: Search and Rescue

Complete? no

Summary: When Killian Jones, a rescue swimmer for the US Coast Guard, pulled Emma Swan from the unforgiving sea he had no idea she would end up rescuing him right back. [Captain Swan Modern AU]

My oh-so-humble thoughts
I was intrigued by this story purely because of the accompanying picture on the Captain Swan Forever facebook page. Killian…in uniform…umghgf!

I love how she’s managed to keep our fave characters intact, yet somehow make them unique, And I LOVE how she’s incorporated Killian’s family! It made me giggle so hard!

It’s a WIP, but seems that she’s updating regularly. And I LOVE it, like I said. I can’t wait for more. So head on over to AO3 (click ←) or ff.net (linked above) and leave her some love for inspiration! Enjoy lovelies!!

Story Spotlight: Piano Man

Title: Piano Man

AU/Canon/AH: AH
Complete? no

Summary: World famous pianist Killian Jones moves to Storybrooke after a tragic accident takes away his wife and his livelihood. He tries to carve a new life out for himself and his daughter with the help of his brother, Liam.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
I started this last week and I seriously got through the 14 chapters already published in like…a day. It’s extremely compelling and I love it. It’s simple-it’s real life. And she warns that it’s angsty, but if this is her angsty then I can handle it.

The characters she’s created are delightful and the ones we already love are perfect the way she’s written them. She’s captured their essence in a real world kinda way. I would love to be friends with this Killian (duh) or even this Emma. Emma’s sometimes annoy me in fics, but not this one.

It’s not done, but she’s usually good about updating. So head on over to AO3 and give it a read and a follow (or subscribe I think it is over there…??). Leave her kudos and comments cause the more you leave the faster authors write. *squeal* Thanks lovelies and enjoy!!

Story Spotlight: Needles are for Sewing, Swan

Complete? yes

Summary: “Trying to convey the benefits of modern vaccinations, or modern medicine in general, to a pirate whose first aid kit was made entirely of clothing scraps and rum had been one the more difficult battles she had fought since the job of “modernizing” Hook had been taken on by her and her family. Or, Operation: Sparrow. As Henry liked to call it. (Yes, Sparrow as in Captain Jack, because, hey, her son was 13 and thats what happens when Mom starts dating a pirate).”

Or: Emma takes Killian to the hospital to get all the suggested booster vaccinations for this world and discovers that even pirates have their limits.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
I found this-like always-on the Captain Swan Forever Facebook page. It’s probably safe to assume that I get everything Captain Swan from there simply because it appears in my Facebook feed and I don’t have time to search for myself.

But this is a hilarious one shot that I loved!! It’s hilarious. Seriously this is something I can totally picture. And it’s so simple, just like the dentist one I posted awhile back. Of all the things in this world, these are two that I can totally see Killian being freaked about. Medicine is barbaric. >:(

It’s worth the read and it’s short so it’s not like you’ll be languishing over it to get to the funny parts. It’s all funny, all 2500 words. So go over to AO3 and leave her some kudos and comments. Thanks lovelies!!
