regina did not like this whole co-parenting thing one bit
Young Regina gets into Emma’s world when trying to escape her mother and catches the eye of a certain blonde petty thief.
anon request - one where regina is expecting a baby
"We are hoping for a girl," Emma says and grins as Regina elbows her at the table. "Okay, I am hoping for a girl. She’s hoping there’s more ice cream in the fridge.”
au: hogwarts; a little bit of mischief
"So you can just change to anyone you like? Like McGonagall did with the cat?" Emma asked curiously, watching Regina mix the ingredients.
"That’s transfiguration, you idiot," Regina rolled her eyes, something the muggle-raised Emma was used to by now and didn’t take it the least bit serious.
"But you can change. To anyone."
Regina’s eyes didn’t leave the boiling cauldron as she watched the purple smoke rise. “Basically, yes. If you have their hair or a nail or something to mix in.”
"Cool," the blonde smiled and then surprised a giggle when the smoke made Regina cough up. "So, whose hair should we get?"
(pumping people up for chrmdpoet upcoming hogwarts fanfic; this bit has nothing to do with the actual fanfic imma just playing in the hp universe ;))
Once Upon a Time: a brief summary
IT’S THE PICTURE!!!! OMG
hey that is my account pic ;)
see, this is good. we have fun regina/hook!cosplay pics, fun regina/emma!cosplay pic, all is good. both swan queen and evil captain (??) are treated like they are equal non-canon ships and the canon ship - outlaw queen - is getting promotion officially (because it’s on the goddamn show so it should ??? i mean it makes sense ??). if only the whole con went down like that huh
au: emma has to go back to past to help regina enact the initial curse, otherwise henry would have never been born; and snow white makes the matters complicated
Regina’s back hit the dirty prison cell ground as Emma landed on top of her, breathing heavily. They had been trying to get out of the cell but the protective magic shield had knocked them back, resulting in quite an uncomfortable position, pressed against each other, feeling each other’s chests rise and fall. Instead of immediately parting, they stayed like that, gawking at each other awkwardly until Regina raised her free hand to brush a strand of blonde hair behind Emma’s ear.
"I—" Emma started but was cut short by a stern voice.
"Seems like you’re getting too comfortable here, perhaps separate cells are in order?" Snow White’s tone was harsh and unlike anything Emma remembered. They immediately bolted up, Emma clinging to the prison bars.
"Snow…Queen Snow White, please, don’t do this, I can explain, I—-"
"You’ve been helping the Evil Queen escape her cell, there isn’t anything to explain. That is unless you want to tell me how you knew about my current…state. What does the Evil Queen want with my unborn child?" Snow waited for the prisoners to answer but her gaze was met with silence.
"Very well. Don’t get too cozy in here, the trial is tomorrow and if by then you won’t be more cooperative, maybe the arrows will make you talk."
After Snow left, Emma sunk against the wall, hugging her knees. The brunette sat down next to her and gently took her hand.
"Don’t worry, Emma. We’ll get out of here," she said and even though once upon a time in a different world Emma would believe her, this time the words brought little comfort.
DAMMIT OKAY. OKAY I WILL TRY WRITE THE THING.
But like, can other people also write hogwarts au-s so it’s a thing? i am really not good at lengthy fanfics but everyone seems to really want to read more so i guess i could try. but i know there are at least three other superb talented fanfic writers and i totally encourage them and everyone to write hogwarts au-s too, EVERYONE JUMP ON THIS HORSE ITS AWSOME.
emma swan: courageous and hot-headed, emma came into hogwarts as an orphan from over the seas on mcgonagall’s special request. she was sorted into gryffindor for her strong will and brave spirit, however emma recklessness and disregard for rules often gets her in trouble. especially when she finds herself befriending a slytherin girl, someone her best friends david and snow do not approve of in the slightest.
regina mills: coming from an ancient pure blood family of witches, regina was sorted into slytherin for her leadership qualities and ambition to learn magic in order to become an auror. her mother cora became the ministeress of magic and imposed many anti-muggles laws, enraging the current headmistress of hogwarts, minerva mcgonagall and ever since the ministry tried to bring her down from her post. regina does not follow in her mother’s footsteps, cunningly knowing that in order to help keep hogwarts a safe place for all, she has to pretend to work with her mother for inside information: and only emma swan know where regina’s heart and loyalties truly lie.
"Where would you put something you wouldn’t want me to find?" Snape asked, trying to explain the usefulness of an Personified Avoidance Potion.
"The back of a shampoo bottle," Regina muttered to herself. She heard a faint giggle and as she looked around, she saw Swan looking at her.
Before she could remember that they don’t like each, Regina smiled at the blonde and held her gaze with no sign of actual hatred.
After all, she was really funny.
