Summary: After Killian moves in with Emma, she quickly learns that he has quite the sweet tooth, so it comes as no surprise when he ends up needing to see a dentist. What does shock Emma are the extreme, and somewhat humorous, measures her pirate takes to get out of that appointment.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
This fic-I have to say-made me laugh. And not like a gentle chuckle or a feminine giggle. This was a full out guffaw, sprinkled with a bit of cackle, and a snort at the end for good measure.

When you think about it, it makes TOTAL sense that Killian would be…wary…of the dentist. I mean, dentistry is a pretty barbaric profession. Can you tell how alike Killian and I are in this regard?!?

So yeah, this quick little one shot will tickle your funny bone completely. So, head on over to AO3-read, comment and leave kudos. Because this chick is awesome!

BTW-the link above is for AO3, but is is more your thing, head here. :)

Summary: When Emma wakes up to find a stranger in her kitchen, normally she would call the cops. But her cat suggests otherwise.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
This fic was so simple and so adorably…well, something I can see happening to me…that I just had to share it. :) I mean, if I woke up to find Killian in my kitchen… *le sigh*

I absolutely love Emma’s reaction to this situation and Killian is just so…Killian. She’s absolutely nailed him. And the cat…well now. I’m not a huge cat fan but this one I like. :)

Like I said, this is simple and it’s a one shot, so I don’t want to say too much. I mean, seriously it’ll take maybe 5 to 10 minutes to read, but this is days later and I’m still giggling over it so…yeah. It’s worth the read and worth leaving her some love or kudos. Sheesh all these fanfic platforms are different!!!

(And DUUUUUDE!!! I just saw she wrote a follow up so yeah I’m definitely finishing this quick and heading over to read that one! Ahhhhh!!!!) Enjoy lovelies!

Summary: After months of trying to save Emma, True Love’s Kiss destroys the Dark One for good. That night, Killian works up the courage to ask her to stay the night with him.

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. :)
