OUaT in Neverland → heart on fire
Hook and Neverland always shared a special bond, almost symbiotic, and 300 years of living with nothing but revenge on his mind has reshaped the realm, transforming it into a dark and dangerous place.
The longer he watches Emma though, as she takes whatever Neverland throws at them in stride, something begins to stir in his chest, something he thought had died a long time ago.
Their relationship changes, fleeting touches and stolen glances turn into moments that only belong to the two of them, and as love winds its way around Hook’s heart, blooming hot and bright like a flowering vine, so do light and life slowly find their way back to Neverland.
The morning Emma kisses him and tells him that she loves him, the sunlight bursts across the land in an almost blinding explosion, and the last shadows fall away from Hook’s soul.
