| MiDushiNoSushi chapter 8 . 1/28
I absolutely love this fic. I love your versions of Ruby and Regina and I love how easily their relationship developed. I liked that the antagonism between the Charming and Regina weren't overly emphasized on both sides, mainly because you showed that while Regina has feelings, she also has control. So it was just refreshing to see how easy and awesome she could be when she controls her passions and channels them appropriately- like into sexing up Ruby. I hope that you'll consider writing another fic in this particular story-verse or another Red Queen pairing. I would love to read more. Cheers! :-)

I loved it!

I absolutely hate kids, but this story was positively delightful.
There were some odd pairings, but this story just worked.
Can't explain it.

Kinda refreshing to read some other fanfics than for example Swanqueen. Hehe, I'm all Regina with ALL pairings including her. Yeah, I'm a sucker for that.
Liked your story for beeing a bit different and well written.
Keep sharing your stuff!

I thought this story was incredibly sweet. I loved it, specifically how Regina chooses to inform Ruby she's pregnant.

I like this. I really like this. :) I like how both Regina and Red kinda sorta understand each other in ways none of the other townspeople seem to be able to and the way their stories were shown here, I feel for both of their own grievances.

Nice story, truly.
Thanks for taking the time to write this, especially as it's not the most popular pairing.
I like how Regina still manages to be her sexy as hell self and enjoy some kink, while still being maternal on the side (actually I think the maternal is in the fore and the kink is on the periphery).
Anyways, thanks for writing!

I hope it's a girl, I think we have enough princes for now.
I hope they still get it on, apparently pregnant women may have extra hormones that lead to extra horniness...
/"And have sex. I miss sex."/
I wonder if they'd be disappointed if 'it' wasn't a werewolf...
/"Congratulations on your weird magic baby."/
Nicely stated and to the point.
Good of Regina to have been willing to support and respect her decision, even when she would have been devastated.
/"I feel like my skin is crawling."
"Well, that's enough crystal meth for you."
"You're not helping."/
Btw, you nicely integrated the 'two' households into one that's more focused on the new life than on the old grievances. Very seamless. Well done!
I'm liking their reindeer games:
/For some reason she expects the woman to return to the group agitated and impatient, but Ruby forgets that Regina Mills is a consummate actress, who joins up with them with a warm smile and makes excuses to stay as late as they can./
Someone's in the dog house...
Dude, they spent over 3 decades with each other, I think a solo vacation (without the in-laws) would be a good thing.
/"Think you can wait?"
"Then, yes, I can wait."/
| ScOut4It chapter 6 . 7/7/2013
/"You know she was married to your father, right? I think he would have mentioned it if something was a little different about his new wife."/
/"It's definitely not Whale's?" Ruby's never seen such an icy glare from Regina or her grandmother, which is relatively impressive all things considered, and they immediately have David backtracking./
/"What on Earth are you apologizing for? Because if you say it's for the Gold thing, I might be slightly offended."/
Little monster manipulated her with his babyness.
Good for them!

/"God, you take after your mother."
First pda yet, and still covert :)
/They gather around the island as they sing and Regina takes the moment to press her front against Ruby's back, hands swiftly moving over her hips.
It's as deliberate as her lips brushing against the shell of Ruby's ear as she sang, but more risky, considering their company./
I wouldn't mind trading places with Ruby for a bit...
/"It's gonna get you in trouble some day."
"I don't mind this kind of trouble," Regina replies,/
Strong character trait:
/Ruby has to give Regina credit; she never backs down from a confrontation. "You do already have two moms as it is…"/
And playing a little dirty there, I like it.
Wow, Regina saying it first :) That's pretty sweet.
Ooh, now that is delicious!
It's what I was lamenting a few chapters back.
"I love you," she breathes desperately, one arm reaching back to take a hold of Regina as she straightens up despite her weakening knees. "Not a lot… right now. Please don't stop."/
Still liking it when she hits her 'bellow the belt' Rofl!
Seems like Regina is staking her claim and going to make an 'honest woman' out of Ruby.
Or at least, she will 'after' knocking her up with a potion that she claims to have little knowledge of.
Ruby really shouldn't just drink anything.
But an accidental magical insemination with both their DNA seems pretty cool. I mean, it's not often that lesbians are engaging in girl-only sex and discover a 'happy accident' after a few months go by.
I wonder if Red will hear the heartbeat in herself...
| ScOut4It chapter 4 . 7/7/2013
So did they just have sex? Kind of fast-forwarded through any obvious tells on this one.
At least she gives her the hard truth:
/"Sleep, Ruby. I promise you that every problem you have will still be here when you wake up."/
Probably truest statement ever.
/"Doesn't seem like you are saying anything at all."/
| ScOut4It chapter 3 . 7/7/2013
Behaving like a pet though, isn't she? Sneaking into bed without asking when she knows she can't be rejected.
Really interesting to see how Regina treats that move.
Apparently as nonchalantly as everything else considering the note and food left for her in the morning.
Ruby better watch out. When her and Regina get together, she'll be wanting to impregnate her shewolf. Better get used to the idea sooner than later Ruby... ;D
/Two different guys and one girl in twenty-eight years seems reasonable to her./
/like Adele and that song that girl sings about calling her… maybe./
Hell even I can't avoid that one :) Grows on you somehow.
Flirty insult :)
/"As long as she'll let me, I guess."
Henry turns his head up, still leaning against his mother's side, waiting for a remark. "Well, I'll give you a trial run, but I've never been great with pets."/
Gawd! With friends like that, who needs evil queens?
/Emma, the subject in question, takes a long drink and avoids any eye contact while her son sits by totally enrapt in the conversation./
Shit they are dysfunctional.
I appreciate his levity:
/Whale sighing and sliding out of his seat as she does. "Well, this was fun. We'll try again next month and see if anything changes."/
Take it Evil Queen!
/Regina isn't soft when she kisses Ruby, she's demanding and rough, just like Ruby imagined her to be, just like Red fantasized she'd be. /
Can't be too 'good' all the time ;)
Fucker cock-blocked her!

/Red's breath catches in her throat as she feels the Queen's fingers dance along the bare skin on her leg.
"Better tell Snow you looked a little less intrigued," she whispers in Red's ear as her hand brushes over the blackening wound/
Yeah, not much of a friend:
/her death would only be a small hiccup in this war between her and Snow. Sure, it might spark some more anger from Snow, but it wouldn't flatten her like it would if something happened to Charming. Charming who she just met and barely knew. The Queen seems to know what was on her mind./
That is handy :)
/"So," he asks from down the pathway, pulling her keys out of his pocket and tossing them to her, "what are they saying in there?"
Ruby laughs and deflates against the hood of her car./
/"I'd like that. Sometimes horses get a bit… skittish around me."
Regina smiles. "Don't worry, I only brought the good ones over."/
/But there was something in the way Regina looks at her that makes Ruby certain she recalls whispering to her in the woods that day./
Sometimes a wolf's gotta scratch.

I like how Regina knew Ruby was there.
/"I'll show you around upstairs." A command./
I like how you describe them taking in outsiders and depending on the outsider, they either get the 'full tour' or the mind-erase.
This is interesting; I wonder...
/Nothing about this feels forced. If anything it feels domestic. Which is odd because Ruby has never been domestic. Red never really was either./
It's good that David has to walk a mile in her stilettos. Best of luck bro.
She's an expert at weighted words:
/"Then why the need to escape?" It's a simple question, but everything Regina says always seems loaded with so much meaning./
/They are allies now. Ruby would prefer to think of herself as Switzerland or a third party voter, but she was in Regina's corner now, literally and figuratively with the placement of her bedroom. /
Definitely should be interesting to know...
/The mirror thing, she has to ask about that. She wonders if it's to make the rooms feel bigger or less empty. Or if it's just a weird fetish thing./
Oh no she didn't just go there, did she? Lol!
/"I've been wondering for a long time if you just liked to watch me in hot pants or what that whole thing was about."/
/"It's a bitch." She smirks and lazily takes a sip from her own cup of wine. "No offense."/
Cute guard wolf.

I thought this story was perfect before but the Epilogue...there are no words for how fantastic it was :D
Best RedQueen story anywhere. Period.
