So I am as annoyed off as anyone with 3x07, but I am sad that the kiss/lead in to love scene got completely overshadowed. It was done beautifully so I decided to explore and expand on it. I know it's been done by many but I thought I'd give it a go.

Originally a guess about how series 3 could end for Fridget (Franky and Bridget) which ended up being fairly spot on. Extended from a four shot to an eight shot. Exploring their first couple of days together.

Running Out Of Time reviews
My take on how the end of season 3/beginning 4 could go. Emma must follow Zelena to the Enchanted Forest of the past to preserve her and her family's future but can she save an ailing Regina in the process? Adventure story. Full character ensemble piece. WARNING NOT a Captain Swan story. It is SWAN QUEEN all the way. PLEASE NOTE RATING HAS GONE UP TO M!
