You can’t force yourself to trust. So you put all your doubts in a little box and bury it deep and then try to forget where you buried it.

“I am a shark, Cassie,” he says slowly, drawing the words out, as if he might be speaking to me for the last time. Looking into my eyes with tears in his, as if he’s seeing me for the last time. “A shark who dreamed he was a man.”

Meine Schritte klangen wie Donner, mein Atem wie kleine Explosionen.
No-curse AU. Princess Emma has a magic charm that lets her slip into the city unnoticed. On the eve of her 21st birthday she meets Lieutenant Killian Jones and a different sort of magic takes hold.
HUGE thanks to jadeddiva for the beta on this one! It’s not the sort of thing I usually write and she was a great help in pointing out where I needed to clarify bits of things.
Day 1: Alternate CS Version AU
Neither of them believed in love at first sight, but all it took was one chance meeting and their lives were changed forever.
While on her way to a ball in the neighboring kingdom, princess Emma encounters outlaw/pirate Killian Jones, who takes more than just the gold they were carrying – he takes her heart. What she didn’t know was that she has captured his heart too.
Believing that one needs to fight for what one wants, Killian goes to the ball impersonating a prince, with the intent of seeing princess Emma and confirming that what he felt was not one-sided – it wasn’t.
They meet whenever and wherever they can, and they both know it will never be enough, but he wasn’t going to ask her to leave her life behind for him – a pirate. That’s why she didn’t wait for him to ask her, she made her choice a long time ago and surprised him by showing up on his ship. He wanted to make sure this is what she really wanted, and all she had to do was kiss him to chase away any doubts he had.
And if you’re wondering where they are now, you can find them on The Jolly Roger, sailing the seas, visiting realms they always wanted to see, living happily ever after…
One of my favourite moments between Past!Hook and Wench!Emma is the way he looks at her. He just met her, and he is so mesmerized by her. I think that’s the right word :)
(gif not mine; it belongs to lookatthelights)
Oh mesmerized is indeed the right word.
Enchanted, enthralled, spellbound.
He is just so completely and utterly captivated by her.
Unfortunately I don’t have pictures/screencaps, but I think every CSer knows which faces I’ll be talking about. :)
The beginning of this scene giffed above we see Hook surrounded by his men and other barmaids, and then Emma comes out of no where, getting right in his line of vision, and we get this expression of wonder on his face.
He’s stunned by her.
The rest of the night, she has his complete attention. He has sent his men and the barmaids away. All he seems to want here is Emma.
Now, let’s go all the way back to their first meeting in the Enchanted Forest. I don’t know about you guys, but when Killian looked at Emma for the first time, I saw hints of that same captivation or wonderment in his expression there too.
I think, in every way, Killian has always been utterly enchanted by Emma.
She’s a “tough lass” who fights fiercely and someone who protects and saves people. She puts her family first, she’s stubborn, she’s courageous, she’s magical. She’s everything pure and good.
She’s the Savior. She’s Emma Swan.
Despite being on separate sides at the beginning, I think that Killian did feel as connected to her as she did to him when they climbed the beanstalk, and I think had Emma trusted him, he would’ve allowed feelings to develop sooner and his redemption would’ve begun right then and there.
Because there was no way that Killian Jones could meet Emma Swan and not fall for her. His very character was written for her. They’re kindred spirits. They make each other better. She makes him a hero and he makes her believe in herself. She makes him want to be a man of honor again, a man that Liam would be proud of. He understands her and knows her in a way that no one ever has before.
Even here, we have a drunken Hook, who has no idea who this mysterious lass is, yet he wants to know. He accepted that they were just “two ships passing in the night”, but had he been sober (as he was on the beanstalk) he would’ve known everything that he needed to know about Emma, and he would still fall for her.
No matter the time or place, these two were meant to fall for each other. To find love again with each other. To have a second chance at happiness.
