a/n: DID YOU REALLY THINK I COULD LET THIS OPPORTUNITY PASS???

———

She’s tugging on a loose curl when a knock sounds at the door. Henry’s feet clamber across the worn, wooden floors and her heart skips several beats. He’s early.

Her reflection is staring wide-eyed back at her, apprehension mingling with bubbling excitement that has butterflies erupting in her belly in a way she can’t even remember. His voice mingles with Henry’s down the hall, his low, lilting accent slipping under the door and into her chest. It makes her heart squeeze because this is real, they’re going on a date and he’s picking her up and god, she feels like a teenager.

Fingers trembling just slightly, she slips her heels on. They’re tall and black and she ignores the small tug at the corner of her mouth- knowing his jaw will probably drop when he sees her legs. (She definitely ignores the fact that the last time he had seen her dressed up it had been at dinner with another man in another life).

" -and she needs to be home by eleven o’clock."

"But she realized that she wanted him to know her. She wanted him to understand her, if only because she had a strange sense that he was the kind of man she could fall in love with, even if she didn’t want to."

—Nicholas Sparks; Safe Haven

What do you think all this info about Emma putting her guard up means?

bemusedbicycle:

The magic is too strong - it pulls her under as she struggles to breathe, a riptide at her ankles that makes her want to drown. It is powerful and seductive and every time she feels herself slip, it takes her that much longer to get up. 

It’s thrilling. 

It’s terrifying. 

(You need to run.)

He is stubborn and serious as he stands in front of her, fist clenched at his side as he struggles to keep his eyes open in the maelstrom that surrounds them. She breathes out hard through her nose (just like Elsa taught her) and tells herself protect, but the winds only get faster - her magic burning deeper. 

(You need to run.)

“Killian -“ He is already shaking his head at her desperate words - her brave, idiot pirate - stepping closer and reaching for her hand. 

“No.” He winces at the wave of magic that pulsates from her very being, stumbling forward. “I won’t leave you.” 

(You need to run.)

She closes her eyes and thinks of his fingers in her hair, how his smile is soft and careful when she looks at him over her mug of hot chocolate. She thinks of the way he sits with Henry, reading his schoolbooks over his shoulder and scoffing at the little illustrations. She thinks of the heat of his skin, the smell of the sea, and wills herself to calm. 

(You need to run.)

“Emma, please.” His voice is anguish and heartbreak and she breaks too. “Come back to me, love.” 

(You need to run.)

There is a flash of light, a shot of power - and then nothing at all.

FAVORITE CHARACTER MEME (x)

Irish heartthrob Colin O’Donoghue had all the attention of many female fans at the San Diego Comic-Con when he answered a question of what advice would he provide his character, ‘Hook’ to keep Emma Swan. When he answered that he would advise his character to “treat her well, buy her flowers, clean the dishes and give her lots of little hugs” it is very likely that his favourite status with his female fans likely became even more secure and enhanced with this answer.

The actor was one of the more popular men at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con convention and this is no surprise considering his smouldering good looks and the different dimensions that he finds within his character and conveys to the viewers.

During an interview at the convention he revealed that the relationship between his character and Emma, played by Jennifer Morrison is complicated and this will be seen as the two of them try to determine what they are feeling for one another.

On the show his character has made some very difficult decisions for ‘love’ and fans will find out in season 4 how that works out for ‘Hook’. As an actor, his performance has some fans and entertainment observers anticipating that soon he might be casting his glance toward movies.

His presence on “Once Upon a Time” has made it one of the more popular shows on television as filmmakers have noticed how popular he is with female viewers and his ability to identify aspects of his character that connect with fans.

He is already a star because of his acting talent and gorgeous looks but don’t be surprised if the season 4 performances of Colin O’Donoghue on “Once Upon a Time” leads to his name being mentioned in consideration for feature roles in some big budget films in 2014 and onward.
