Summary: Snow White put the Evil Queen Regina Mills under a spell, with the help of Rumplestiltskin, to keep her in hiding, safely tucked away for 30 years from her family and her throne, but little does she know that the spell is weakening each day. When Regina finally escapes well before the expected time, she crafts a plan for vengeance that sets Snow on an emotional and mental downward spiral, putting not only Regina's life at risk but Emma's as well. Will Snow White, driven mad by hate and revenge, be able to be stopped in time by the Evil Queen and the White Knight?
Rating: Mature
Warnings: Depictions of Violence; tw - torture (alluded to via use of magical and physical restraints) and past abuse (alluded to in conversation); Pre-Storybrooke AU; all events occur in FTL

Special thanks to Miss_Josephine for beta'ing this in a crunch!

Sample (click linked text below for full, completed story):

A silence settled as Emma considered her options. She watched the dark-haired woman walk around the room, and the location became evident as she saw a large bed against the far wall. It was dark, imposing, and larger than life, much like the woman strutting around the room nonchalantly. Her heart began to race as multiple scenarios played out in her head – some welcome, others unnerving, a few frightening.

Title: Stay
Pairing: Swan Queen (Emma/Regina)
Fandom: Once Upon a Time
Rating: Mature
Summary: Whiskey is not Regina’s drink, and it makes her request something of Emma that had been a long time coming.
A/N: This happens after everyone returns to Storybrooke in 3B. Not really any spoilers, but I’m going with the non-canon idea that Emma and Regina have become aware of their feelings for each other. Just go with it! This is an anonymous prompt request from Tumblr.


Emma guided a stumbling Regina into the mayor’s bedroom after driving her home and making sure she could get up the stairs to her room. The normally regal and put together former queen flopped down onto the side of her bed with a huff. She was every form of cute and Emma tried not to laugh at her not so ladylike behavior.

Title: Fate is a Tricky Bitch
Fandom/Pairing: OUAT/Swan Queen
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Don’t own ‘em or Swan Queen would have happened in the pilot episode.
Author’s Note: Aboard The Jolly Roger emotions run high with too much togetherness. Emma ends up in the middle of an argument between Snow and Regina. Pre-Swan Queen.

Regina’s lip curled in agitation and a barely contained adrenaline rush. She stood toe-to-toe with Snow, staring down into angry but far too sensitive eyes. If their conflicted and shared past wasn’t enough to make Regina hate the other woman, she’d still feel disdain for her.

Title: Even Assassins Need Love
Pairing: Nysara (Nyssa & Sara)
Fandom: Arrow
Rating: Mature for f/f sex
Summary: Sometimes the best things happen when you let your guard down.
A/N: This is a prompt request from eemersonm on Tumblr for some Nysara sexy times. Forgive me if this ends up OOC. I have never written Nysara before and know only a little bit about either character.


The steam from the bathroom rolled out into Sara’s small apartment as she exited from a much needed bath. Her confrontation with Nyssa and the subsequent fight for her mother’s release from the League had taken a physical toll on her, but the emotional toll was far worse. She had sat in the hot steaming bath for over an hour as tears rolled down her face.

Title: This is Goodbye, Ms. Swan
Fandom: OUAT
Rating: M
A/N: Set at the conclusion of the 3B finale so there are some spoilers.
Warnings: This story contains graphic violence and character death. It’s not a happy ending story, but more in tune with original, classic fairy tales. You have been warned.

A slick and evil smile spread over Regina’s smoky and blood splattered face. She looked around to take in the devastation – the library was a fiery inferno, Granny’s diner was nothing but rubble. It was beautiful chaos and Regina loved it. There were screams in the distance as Storybrooke’s citizens sought what little refuge they could. Regina had let some of them go willingly. Those who unwittingly played a part in this moment, but didn’t deserve her ire. Like Robin, Roland, and Marian.

Not sure if I should continue it or not. Let me know.

Title: In Your Hands
Rating: Eventually M, starts out tame
Pairing: Swan Queen
Summary: Regina surprises even herself when she hugs Emma goodbye as the new curse is taking everyone back to the Enchanted Forest, but in parting she entrusts Emma with a prized possession, something she has closely guarded since losing Daniel…her heart.

***

“Nooooooo!” Emma screamed as she watched Snow and David, her own mother and father, disappear into the black vortex that swirled behind Regina. Again, her family was being ripped apart. Tears streamed down Emma’s cheeks as she turned to Regina who fought against the force of the magic’s pull.

The former queen reached out to Emma who took her hand and held on fiercely.Read more... )

Note: I'm kind of liking the idea behind my prior share "Ellie's Fireflies." You all may be seeing more about Ellie & Martha. In the meantime, here's the next installation for this week's prompt.

An Impossible Love
By: Callie Wise

Her laugh broke the silence weighting heavy in the darkness. It was odd and misplaced, but it took a pressure from my chest as the joy she emitted made me join in, even if it was against my will.

A new home for fan fiction writers ready to dive into original fiction and go for the big stuffed burrito of getting published!!!

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison


What is the Collective?

The Queer Storyteller's Collective is a space where queer writers of all forms can challenge themselves, share their work, and find encouragement to take risks with the ultimate goal of putting more queer voices out into the culture. Whether you have never written more than a school paper or have penned best-selling novels, you are welcome here. While this will mostly be for queer writers to engage each other, it is also open to non-queer writers who want to incorporate more queer characters into their work with realism and respect.

Before moving on, please read the Rules of the Collective. It is the responsibility of individual members to be aware of these rules. Violators of the rules will only be given one written warning by the admin before being banned. This is a safe space for queer and queer-positive writers, and it is intended to stay that way.

Ellie’s Fireflies
By Callie Wise

Even now, after 71 years, I can still see the look of wonder on her face as I handed over the Mason jar with the little lights dancing around inside. She held the jar up in the fading light of that humid Alabama evening, her sun kissed cheeks occasionally glowing as the bugs lit up.

Ellie was only twelve. I had just turned thirteen a few months before. I didn’t know what would happen next would change everything.

Twisted Wish
By Callie Wise

Morgen wasn’t sure how she got there. A field strewn with dead and writhing bodies, smoke drifting over the landscape like an early morning fog stretched out before her. A blast of canon fire made her jump, and that’s when she felt the weight of the gun in her hand. Looking down, she recognized it immediately with its brass scope gleaming in the sunlight – a Whitworth. Katie’s rifle.

I have been away for quite a while, just taking a break from a LOT of things. Instead of getting into more fan fiction, I have focused on writing some original pieces. To encourage my own writing, I created a forum for LGBTQ writers to get prompts, write and share their works. It's called The Queer Storyteller's Collective (http://queerstorytellers.freeforums.net/), and I'll post more about it later. Hopefully, these are works that can be expanded on into full stories at some point. I thought I'd share though and see what others thought of them. So, here goes:

Death Be Kind
By Callie Wise

Prompt: Hero falls under Martyr’s spell

Death should come swift for people like her. If for no other reason, than for people like me to be put out of our misery faster as we watch them fall.

She was reckless and dangerous, with her wild eyes and even wilder blonde hair that she always wore down in a chaotic mass of curls. The feel of my fingers tangled in those curls is one of the earliest memories I have of her – the sleep over when we were thirteen that changed the course of our lives forever. The blonde hair that went flying out as the sword thrust through her chest propelled her forward into my arms, one of my hands automatically tangling in those curls again.

We didn’t know yet that our destinies were wrapped up in each other, that Fate had predetermined our beginning, middle, and now end.

Even heroes need someone to look up to, and that’s what she was to me.

This was my first SQ fic and I forgot to post it here! Oops!!!!

Title: Who Saves Whom
Fandom: OUaT
Pairing: Swan Queen, of course!
Rating: NC-17
A/N: Yes, I have a new obsession! OMG, do I have a new obsession. These two are SO freakin’ hot!
A/N2: First OUaT fic, and I haven’t wrapped my head around all of the storylines yet. All I know is that Emma and Regina have off-the-charts chemistry, and I swear to God, if I fall for another pairing and it doesn’t come to fruition, someone may get hurt. Okay, not really, but damn it, I’ll be really, really mad!!!!

Since I don’t have a great handle on how this would go about happening in the first place, I thought I’d just jump to the fun part. For our purposes here in getting to the naughty bits, let’s just say that Regina has found a way to FTL from Storybrooke and is back in place as the Queen, while Emma is still trying to get the hang of being the White Knight and Savior.

***

Emma ducked quickly as her head narrowly missed another low branch as her horse tore across the worn forest path. Her thighs were wrapped tightly around the horse’s ribcage as it jumped a fallen log and gathered more speed upon entering an open field, away from the Queen’s castle and further away, every second, from help.

“Stop, you stupid fucking pile of fur!” She jerked on the reins. Though she’d never been a great rider and had little patience for ill-tempered beings – human or animal – she was determined to figure out how to stop this beast without getting killed, maimed, or calling for help. Certainly, the horse would have to tire eventually. Maybe she could wait it out and just hang on.

Title: Truth and Consequences
Fandom: OUAT/Swan Queen
Rating: soft R
Disclaimer: Not mine. If they were, Swan Queen wouldn’t have to be written about in fan fiction!
Summary: Regina hasn’t been seen since Cora died so Emma goes to check on her.


The noises around Emma were muffled like the teacher in the Charlie Brown cartoons. She was sure Henry was talking about something incredibly important to his ten year old life – Spiderman, the plans he had with Neal for the weekend, or THE book. Whatever it was, Emma had zoned out long ago as she stared off into her bowl of soggy Cheerios. She wasn’t hungry for the homemade spaghetti David was fixing. Truth be told, she didn’t even want the Cheerios. She was more a Fruity Pebbles kind of girl after all, but Snow would give her a hard time about eating so unhealthy. She decided giving in was easier than fighting her mother.

Title: The Mistletoe Curse
Author: Calliope’s Muse
Pairing/Fandom: Swan Queen/ OUaT
Rating: PG
Summary: Regina had tried nearly everything to get Emma to kiss her, except for one.

****

Regina pondered the wisdom of what she was about to do as she looked at the bunched up green leaves adorned with a red bow. She knew she had made Henry a promise, but this wasn’t for a bad purpose. Certainly, he’d understand that his mom was going to lose her evil lovin’ mind if Emma Swan didn’t kiss her soon.

A/N: Alrighty, peeps, we're getting to the good stuff now! From here on out, we're veering off into Muse's crazy imagination. I hope you all are buckled up nice and tight!

CHAPTER 7

Emma was unusually quiet in the back seat as Olivia turned down the street that would take them to Emma’s school. Olivia glanced in the rearview mirror and saw her daughter staring out the window looking wistfully at the road they’d just turned away from – the road that led to the farmhouse. Sighing and going against her better judgment, Olivia made a decision.

Thank you all for the great comments! We're getting closer to having some truth revealed, but not quite yet. I have a reason for it.

Chapter 6

After seeing Mel out, Natalia went back to the kitchen to finish wrapping up the container of cookies she’d made for Olivia. She sat down with a pen and paper to write a note for the woman she loved, but she seemed to coming up empty. Since she’d returned, she’d said so many things, trying to help Olivia to understand or accept, but all of it felt so hollow. She knew what she needed to do was tell the truth. That would finally free her to be open and truly honest with Olivia. The worst that could happen would be that Olivia would try to get her locked up in Ravenwood. At best, Olivia would finally know why Natalia had to leave and why she hasn’t been as open to her as she wanted.

Taking a deep fortifying breath, Natalia made her decision. Picking up the pen again, the words began to flow from her like a river breaking a dam.

I wanted to respond individually to all the comments, but the day got away from me. Thank you all though for commenting and being so amazing! I really appreciate this community and the way we care and support each other. This past week's been tough with losing our sweet BooBoo, but it's been an eased burden being able to share it with you all. Thanks!

Chapter 5

With all the time Natalia spent focusing on her job as an agent, the opportunity to live in Springfield was a welcomed respite. Chicago had been a daily grind of secrets and espionage and counterterrorism games. More than once, she’d considered leaving the Sanctuary. What would she do though? Where would she go? There was no place in the world that was truly safe for her. At least, not until she came to Springfield.

Oops! I just realized that I had forgotten to post updates for this on LJ. SORRY!!!!

Anyhoos, this will give you all plenty to read now. :D

Chapter 4

Pictures of Natalia Rivera fanned out in front of Alan Spaulding. There was something off that had teased at the patriarch’s brain about her since the moment she had arrived in Springfield mooning over his long-lost son, Gus. Alan didn’t buy the story that Natalia had been looking for the father of her son, Rafe. Why now after all these years did she finally go looking for Gus? If the point was to give Rafe some fatherly influence, the time for that would have been when Rafe was a child, not now when Rafe’s almost a grown man.
