A Thread Through the Labyrinth by revanmeetra87 reviews
One year after the death of Killian Jones, the people of Storybrooke are stunned to see him return...but he is unaware of anything that has happened over the past few years. It takes place one year after the end of 5A (canon up until then) and it will be an AU, with season 5B divergence flashbacks that will explain how the story arrived at the point it is. If that makes sense.
