Be the good girl you always had to be
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know
Well now they know
amen to that

Based on The Swan Princess (1994) aka the way they should handle SwanQueen fairytale love.
AU: Storybrooke Asylum (Women)
Fairytales did not belong to their world so they decided to belong to fairytales.
Mary Blanchard - accidentally caused a fire in which her husband and daughter died when falling asleep with a cigarette; she never fully recovered from the guilt and entered her own make-pretend world where her family will always find her and she gets awoken by a kiss.
Regina Mills - murdered both of her abusive parents when she turned sixteen. Cut her father’s heart out with a pocket knife. Now she thinks of herself as The Evil Queen - what exactly she thinks she rules we have yet to find out.
Emma Swan - calls herself the Savior and refers to Blanchard as ‘mother’. We suspect an unhealthy obsession with patient Mills that could have roots in Swan’s years in the system. [records missing]
Belle French - admitted on the grounds of hallucinations, the patient continues to speak to inanimate objects and writes the same word in the journal all over again: rumpelstilskin.
IT IS OFFICIAL! I am writing STORYBROOKE ASYLUM!
I MUST READ THIS!
Roland doesn’t easily trust other people, he must see something really special in you, Regina.
Title: No Choice
Summary: Cora has reasons for killing Daniel and just maybe, she isn’t that evil at all? (alias the one where I gave Once a plot twist lol)
Cora has seen it all and she has understood it all and that, she thinks, might be the cruelest of all faiths.
"Why have you done this?" her little girl screams at her, cradling the body of the silly stable boy, David or Daniel or something of sort and Cora thinks about it all, and almost stops from crushing his heart to dust. Almost.
She thinks about what the Seer shown her: a happy Regina, with a son, with her True Love, saving the worlds from the nothingness that almost devours them all. If there is anything Cora ever fears it is the idea of Nothingness, of everything disappearing into light, into darkness, it doesn’t matter into what - just gone. She wouldn’t let that happen.
Even before Regina’s birth, Cora knew who her daughter would grow up to be: a powerful, dark sorceress that would transcend worlds - the catalyst to the formation of the Saviour. She has seen their powers combined: the purple and blue energy dancing through the nothingness until they collapse on top of the dark haired boy, mothers willing to give the ultimate sacrifice.
That is what the Seer has shown her as a little miller’s girl and that is what has to happen.
But her daughter, her innocent little girl, she didn’t have it in her. The darkness, the power, there was none triggered by goodness, like a candle that just cannot be useful in the daylight. As the girl grew, Cora started to worry the flame will never burn - until she saw a spark in the brown eyes as she screamed the scream of a spoilt babe: “I hate you!”.
Anger, hate, pain. Cora would crave her offspring into all those things, creating a path for the darkness to seep through, to fill Regina, to make the flame burn down kingdoms.
"Why have you done this, mother?" young Regina repeats, her eyes filled with sadness and pain and just not enough anger. They have a long way to go, Cora realizes.
"Because, my love, this is your happy ending," she repeats, knowing it all and wishing her baby to understand. She doesn’t and that is how it is supposed to be, Cora knows.
Cora has seen it all and she has understood it all, and every night she wishes she was just a mere oblivious pawn in the path of Destiny and not the leading Queen.
