Harsh Realms by randomsquare reviews
Crime reporter, Emma Swan's star is on the rise. So when she is suddenly fired in a "corporate restructuring", she doesn't take it all that well. Cue the drinking. The daytime TV. The unexpected offer to man the phones of her brother's best friend's floundering PI firm. With rent past due, and options limited, Emma agrees. How hard could working for Killian Jones be? CS Modern AU.

Zemblanity by lenfaz reviews
William Boyd coined the term zemblanity to mean somewhat the opposite of serendipity: "making unhappy, unlucky and expected discoveries occurring by design". A zemblanity is, effectively, an "unpleasant unsurprise". It derives from Novaya Zemlya (or Nova Zembla), a cold, barren land with many features opposite to the lush Sri Lanka (Serendip). Soulmates gone wrong AU.

worth the risk, worth the guarantee by piratesails reviews
The rule is simple enough: don't fall for your best friend. No matter how loudly her laugh echoes in your head in the middle of the night, or how beautifully endearing the freckles that climb up her arms look under the afternoon sun. And yet, Killian finds it hard to run out of reasons why Emma Swan is the most perfect person he has and will ever meet. Lt. Duckling. Oneshot.

Merry not Christmas by Oubliette14 reviews
Killian Jones has spent the last five years avoiding everything to do with Christmas; a veritable Grinch. Though perhaps Ebenezer Scrooge is more fitting; he's not out to ruin Christmas, he simply prefers to pretend that it doesn't exist. So what happens when he takes a tumble on the mountainside and is stuck for the holiday, cooped up in a small cabin with his saviour, Emma Swan?

I Am Disappeared by randomsquare reviews
CS AU Two-shot. Bartender Emma. Musician Killian. Emma watches on with glee when the insufferably cocky lead singer of the night's band strikes out in her bar. Maybe she even... helps.

2:00 AM by captainodonewithyou reviews
AU. Emma needs a date to combat her well-meaning mother's constant questions after her love life, but she is not willing to commit to a relationship that could end in shambles. An ad on craigslist featuring a too-hot-to-be-real guy offering platonic dates in exchange for storytelling is an attractive offer to the nearly-broke Emma-one that she finds unable to refuse.
