| Reviewing guest chapter 20 . 3/10
I have read this multiple times because I think it is a great story that suits the show and it's characters, who are in character, but only now at 1:46 am on a Monday night did it click that it even goes with the confusing family dynamics that the show has become famous for; you guy added a character who is 19 and a half months and is the aunty of a boy who is a decade older not to mention that everyone can be charmed by her even if she is the daughter of one of the most hated men in the town and made it believable. I would applaud you but I'd either wake you or you would never hear it so instead I have written this review.

You're the best Tinuviel! My absolute favorite fan fiction writer. I love your fics so much and can't wait for the next chapter. Keep up the good work Tinny! (Can I call you Tinny? ;))

Had a bad day today. Desperately need to laugh or even a good cry. Update soon please! What I really need is some Rumbelle fluff! Of any kind! Of course I understand that life interferes, so take your time. As always, great work!

I'm love with this story. Everything feels so genuine and real. I'm eagerly awaiting Belle and the sequel you've been talking about in the ANs. It sounds very cute.
I don't quite buy into nearly everybody falling in love with Rose, but I've read the cliche of everyone loving a little kid in fanfics so much that I'm a little jaded. I'm also not a coo over the baby type of person, so I don't really identify with that. I'm like Emma.
I don't really understand Regina's plan. I also find it a little hard to see her risking a child, since she is so fiercely attached to Henry. Although, she did take Belle so that Gold would experience the pain of losing his true love, so I could be wrong on that account. Her reasons for acting the way she does just come across as a little flat and force. Like she's only doing the things she's doing for the plot.
I thought that she would try to take Rose in beginning when she realized who Rose was the daughter of. Acquire the leverage and there figure out how to use Rose against Gold. Regina would recognized Rose's value, just as she saw Belle's. Regina could make a good case too. She's had Henry since he was a baby, she's the major, Moe wouldn't disapprove. She could have also argued that Mary Margaret and Emma don't have any experience with babies, babies require a big commitment, they have small living space, and time consuming jobs. I feel like Regina should have fought more from that angle.
Regina just kind of needs more reasoning behind her villainy. She's not really planning or scheming. It seems like she isn't the plotting villain that she should be. She's just sort of doing things that sound like they might hurt Gold. The whole finding a different father for Rose just seemed poorly thought out and executed. I mean, it might work on Gold who believed her when she told her story about Belle, but I doubt Emma would have fallen for it.
Also, why does Mary Margaret know how to take care of babies? She's a teacher, but she's Henry's teacher who is ten. There's a big different from a toddler to elementary school.
Despite all the nitpicking I just did, I really do love this story and I hope you at least write through Gold finding Neal. I really want to read a scene with Gold trying to explain the family situation to Neal. "Son, I have a daughter now too. She's about eight years younger than your son. Her mother is my true love and she's about two hundred years younger than you are. I hope you can accept them too. And me. Please accept me. I love you. I cursed an entire world just to see you again."
(I totally didn't read this over before sending it. Sorry for anything resulting from that.)

I loved this chapter, especially the part where Gold gets to have Rose to himself at the duck pond! That was so wonderful of Mary Margaret (you mentioned somewhere that you have a specific reason for Rose to call her Mawry - why is that, I'm really curious!) to let him spend time with her. That moment was beautifully written, it was so touching and sad how Gold's love and regret are tied to each other. Great job with the testimony parts too, I loved seeing Emma come the realization that Gold does love his daughter and can be good for her. I hope she'll start giving him a little more trust soon. The part with Ashley was great too, you really summed up all that is flawed and unattractive about her character. She's so selfish and immature, she's hardly one to cast stones.
Will we see chapter 21 soon? I'm starting my End of Program Exam Saturday (it's what my grad school does instead of a thesis) and once we start we only have a week to finish. Btw, they don't release the questions until the morning the test starts! A new chapter from you would be awesome and boost my spirits!

I just love this story! I wonder what Rumple would do to Regina once he learns what she did to Belle. I hope that Belle would escape soon. I want to see some Rumbelle family feels.

I'm wondering how will react Baelfire at the existence of Rosie: how will their first meeting?
| Sarah Kent-Duke chapter 20 . 1/13
Wonderful chapter as usual! I'm so glad that Rumpelstiltskin did the right thing, and I'm really glad that Moe agreed to it! It's right that he should have primary custody of his daughter. My favorite part was when Gold was telling Emma the truth about his relationship with "Alayna", that was so poignant! I can't wait for chapter 21, it'll be awesome watching Gold literally and figuratively balancing a toddler! I'm seeing a good bit of fluff and whump considering his leg. I wonder how it will be when he takes Rose out with them, how the town will treat them both. I hope it's not another 3 months before chapter 21, we were all dying of anticipation!

This is playing out well and it has me on the edge of my seat! So when is Belle going to be discovered under the hospital?
