My oh-so-humble thoughts
This fic is one that I stumbled across on instagram believe it or not. It’s got 4 chapters out of ???. I know I usually try to wait for ten chapters if it’s a multi, but these chapters are fairly stand alone in nature. Like, each one could be the end, so it’s not like you get a really unfulfilled feeling as you reach the last one written.

It’s all about the aftermath of Emma’s curse and it’s so perfect. She’s captured the trauma that Emma put everyone through as well as the trauma she suffered herself, without dwelling and making the fic seem overly depressing.

I still haven’t managed to find time to watch the finale, though I do know what happens, so this is an awesome take on the whole situation. I love the little flashbacks and tidbits she’s built into this version of canon and they’d honestly be awesome options to see on the show. So head on over to AO3 and leave her some kudos and/or comments. :)
