Amazing story; I do enjoy a good slow burn and best of all, a hopeful and happy ending.
(Unimportant side note but I couldn’t help but wonder how Regina would be okay with Henry being out of school for two months, or if it’s summer vacation, not doing any productive activities during it. I’ll write it off as guilt but I guess the same goes for the adults—no work for two months? Even if the beach house is “free,” didn’t really imagine Emma to financially roll with it. Maybe I missed an explanation somewhere…)

Absolute masterpiece! One of the best swanqueen fics I've ever read. :)

There is so much I could say about this fic but I’d firstly like to say thank you for writing it. It was written beautifully and you articulated every scene and sentence remarkably, which was just one of the many great things about this story.
You may not own these characters but you certainly added to them and portrayed them in such a raw, deep light that you could’ve convinced me they were your own.
The angst and the slow burn was executed so well. The stories of trauma and past experiences were written with a seemingly deep understanding and it felt very real, which sometimes writer can’t do but you conveyed it all well.
I like how you portrayed each character, it made it realistic and I felt real empathy towards them. I also like how you didn’t rush a thing, the pace was enjoyable.
Loved every chapter, amazing work x

Such a beautiful cute chapter! You manage to sprinkle the humor exactly where we (I) need it. The conversations between Emma and Regina are really well written and I like the pace of the story. I think Regina is slowly lowering her walls a bit. The thing about the handcuffs makes me so curious. I really want to know why Regina reacts the way she reacts. The conversation between Henry and Regina was soooo sweet.
"Absolutely charming," made my day (like many other phrases in this chapter).
I'm curious what a favor this is.

Great chapter! I hate the king and Pete how could they do such a thing to them. So sweetly Emma covers Regina with a blanket after she has noticed that Regina is still in her room and has nightmares too. I'm curious how Regina reacts when she wakes up and how the story continues. Emma and Regina are so similar (both have bad pasts).

This chapter is really good, amazing, beautiful, perfect (there are no words to describe how perfect it is). The facts that Regina believes that she doesn't have a single childhood memory that is good was really touching and sad. Your way of writing (situations, feelings, memories) is really really good.
“…to actually be frightening as she'd remembered many nights of Leopold imprisoning her within her chambers in order to keep her from going out into the world” Yes, I already hate Leopold. Poor Regina how could he have been so mean to her?

Amazing chapter! Shopping with Henry and Emma was fun to read. I'm curious what Regina says about the clothes. The part (beginning and end of the chapter) with Regina was really emotional. I knew she would be pulling the cuffs all the time. I hope the wounds heal quickly. I didn't really like Leopold in the series, but I think I'll like him even less in this fanfiction. Poor Regina, I'm so sorry she had such a bad past. Maybe Emma and Regina can both benefit from the "therapy" because they both don't have one to talk to. I also think it's good that Emma has untied Regina. Regina could run away now, but it was the wrong way to tie her there because it reminded her of something bad (that we don't yet know what it is).

Perfect, what else could I say.
I love this story because of all those details you always write down. It's amazing. The whole chapter was so emotional and I love the forest scene and that afterwards (even if it was a little sad). I was pretty sure Regina was trying to escape, but running tied up into the woods in a rainstorm may not be the best idea. Emma is a really good fighter but poor Regina (I hope her injuries haven't gotten much worse). How Regina thought Emma wanted to kill her and how she tried to crawl away hurt my heart a little (because it was so emotional). But I think it's good that Emma now knows a little more about how Regina thinks and that she's scared.
“By attacking me at my house and then restraining me with these… cuffs. By bringing me out to the middle of nowhere and then tackling me into the dirt like a common criminal” Yes, if you see it like that you can see why Regina doesn't trust Emma, but she and Henry just want to help her.
“I'm so very thankful for your desire to strip me of my free will because really, no one else in my life ever has.” Ok that was really a little too much emotion for me (I love your writing style). Henry is so independent and caring, I like his character in this fanfiction. I think Emma was a little bit too tough on Regina when she pulled her into the house and tossed her on the bed. I mean really Emma? Isn't there a better (more comfortable) option for Regina than chaining her to the bed, I can imagine Regina pulling on them all the time. Hopefully she doesn’t hurt herself to much. (I’m sorry that I always write so much).

Another very nice chapter! This story captivates me and I really want to know what's next. "Im getting Regina out of town with or without that" that is the independent Emma we all know and like. Emma and Regina's conversation really had a lot of power. I can't believe Emma said that to her, but I guess she just had to make Regina angry to attack her. I'm still not entirely sure how Emma beat Regina though. Emma was with Blue and Blue said she needed her hands and handcuffs. So maybe she's strengthened Emma's powers or something (?). Poor Regina. I hope her injury isn't too bad. Regina's reaction in the car was awesome. But she still took it calmly (at least I think so). I would have expected her to be angrier. Emma would probably have crashed into a tree without Henry. I'm excited to see what Regina will do and say when she wakes up handcuffed and powerless outside of Storybrooke (I hope she is okay after she passed out).

I already love this fanfiction. I had read the fanfiction “Fall” before and it was incredibly well written, so I wanted to read another one from you. This chapter is a little bit crazy, funny, but also emotional (which I think is good). It would never have occurred to me that Henry ask Emma to kidnap Regina so that she can’t kill Snow. But it's really very exciting and I'm curious how they will manage to kidnap Regina ( I mean she has magic and is very powerful). I think I'll already love Henry in this fanfiction, even though he's a little crazy, but extremely caring. The line "I know that. And I know that she's really hurt right now, too. Thing is, Emma, when she's both of those, she does one of two things: if I'm around, she hides away in her office and gets really quiet and sad and cries a lot when she thinks I don't notice. But I do. And if it's anyone else that's around, she lashes out at them and is really mean." almost broke my heart or that Henry blamed himself for what was happening. He looks so much older than he really is.

I get so angry at what Regina endured. Snow needs to know the truth and what she caused by spilling her secret. At least Regina and Daniel would have had a head start and perhaps the king would not have wanted to wed her. He was despicable

The king was a vile and despicable thing. He deserves to suffer
