Author’s Note: Okay. So. Here it is. My post-StonerQueen payment for the Baker’s Dozen fan art rogersmeed made for me. The first part, with Henry, was actually written before the season ended, but I repurposed it here, since its original work never saw the light of day. But from the point where they start talking about that night, it’s all new. And porn. Guys. It’s just porn. It’s……. porny. And it really does end there, that is not a mistake. (Again, if you need it for reference, Sometimes the Only Way to Get By is to Get High.)
Their family reunion doesn’t last long. In fact, they’ve barely set foot on the docks before Henry spies the Charmings not far away and stops, pulling out of Regina’s grasp slightly.
"Um, mom?" he asks, and a little thrill ripples through her at the sound of that particular moniker finally, finally directed at her again after weeks of him calling her Madame Mayor.
Her cheeks are starting to ache from smiling as she says, “Yes, dear?”
"I need to go see my dad," he tells her and that thrill where her heart should be dips down, pulling her smile with it. "His grave, I mean. Now that I remember who he really was… I need to go see him."
"Oh," she murmurs, and then she nods, because of course he needs to do that. They can absolutely do that. Her smiles fixes back into place, sympathetic and kind, and she says, "Of course. We can go right now, if you’d like."
He makes this face, like he knows what he’s about to say is going to be hurtful and he doesn’t mean it to be, and then he says, “No, I… I think I need to go with Emma,” and she’s glad now that her heart is off somewhere with Zelena, because the way this feels, she’s not sure she could bear the full brunt of it and keep her composure. She just got him back, and he’s already running off to her. His other mother. She feels Robin’s hand slide to her hip and squeeze lightly, a silent show of support — she’d forgotten for a second that he was even standing there.
Watching A&E interviews is frustrating and annoying. They really need to learn to let the other finish before they start talking. I only get like half their answers because they keep on interrupting each other.
