Finally Found YouFinally Found You by Before-I-Sleep
When they finally find Shaw, Root so badly wants to run to her and hug her and never let her go. But if she does that then she'll compromise herself even further. Compromise her heart. So she opts for biting her lip so hard it draws blood and then smiles as she tastes the iron lacing her lips. Letting out a sigh of relief almost seems poetic in a way because as that breath leaves her lungs so does the weight that's been firmly placed on her shoulders for so many months. And the tiredness and pain and all the death finally catches up to her and as her vision goes blurry she realizes it's tears, like rain, pouring on a bittersweet type of day.
Her steps falter and as that weight becomes less and less her body seems to feel it's been given permission to lay down and rest and she reaches a hand out towards Shaw, that smile never letting go. She feels the ground around her as a dark abyss closes in on her vision. The worried look of Shaw standing over her and she whispers, Sameen, an
Frozen Hearts Ch. 3: Wake Up, ReginaCrying, Emma's tears fell forming tear drops of ice. Almost as if her sorrow was being formed into diamonds. Brushing a lock of hair behind Regina's ear she sniffled and tried to form some sort of thought, some sort of plan. Anything to help Regina now, but the only thing that came to mind was the word, failure.Frozen Hearts Ch. 3: Wake Up, Regina by Before-I-Sleep
“Really now, Emma Swan, are you going to give up right now? Then you really will be a failure, if you could somehow convince Regina in her last moments to love herself then surely you can think the same of yourself. You can still save her, you know how, it's there inside of you, the answer.”
Elsa and Anna appeared in a flurry of white and there Emma saw Regina's heart with just barely a faint glow.
“Who are you!? And what are you doing with Regina's heart!”
Emma held Regina closer to her chest, even then still trying to protect her.
“I am not you're enemy, Emma. In fact if Regina were awake right now I'm sure she'd tell you all about me. You could

Unable to use her magic to turn the power back on Regina sat huddled under a blanket shivering as Emma paced back and forth despite the decreasing temperatures.
“How's your hand?”
“Huh? Oh, my hand is fine. How can you be worrying about my hand at a time like this?”
Emma crossed the room and knelt down in front of Regina, lifting her chin with a finger to inspect the clearly freezing evil queen. Noticing the blue tinge to Regina's lips, feeling brave, she ran her thumb over her lower lip.
“I'm fine,” pulling her head away from the warmth of Emma's touch she noticed the dying fire and extended her hand to omit a fireball.
Relighting the fire as she was now took a lot out of her as her magic was trying its best to keep her body from freezing quicker.
“No you're not, Regina, we can't get out of here and your true love is out there and not here to save you! You're going to die and there's nothing I can do about it! Henry, this is going to break his
Frozen Hearts Ch. 1: Come Home, ReginaFrozen Hearts Ch. 1: Come Home, Regina by Before-I-Sleep
The quietness of the beautiful yet deadly new found snow in the middle of summer nonetheless fell down and blanketed the secret town of Storybrooke Maine. Regina had taken some alone time and made herself a cabin in the woods. Her form of trying to cope with her broken heart instead of resorting to evil. She'd worked so hard to fight her evil tendencies and she figured some time alone away from the happy idiots of Storybrooke would do her some good with getting over Robin. She knows Emma meant well, she saved a life from her past self, it wasn't her fault. But oh how she wanted to blame her.
Sitting wrapped in a blanket in front of a roaring fire, lit by her own magic, the former evil queen nurses a glass of red wine. Flinching at the sound of a knock on the door, she knows who it is, it's the way the savior can knock so gently and make it sound like she's got so much force behind it. Gentle but strong. She shuts her eyes tight and wraps the blanket tighter around herself. Maybe if she
I should take a moment to say how fortunate I have been to be one of the few that hasn’t had it terrible compared to others who were incredibly bullied and disowned by their families for being gay. Although at first my mom told me it was just a phase and that I’d get over it I didn’t see it as her not wanting me to be gay. I saw it as her not wanting me to have more of a difficult life then I was already having.
I mean I was cutting myself and being picked on for telling a popular girl I was in love with her. But honestly the bullying wasn’t as bad as it could’ve been, especially for a small town. And like they say, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Then when I went on to graduate and then start working at Walmart, people tried to tell me that I wasn’t gay and that I didn’t know who I was. But through hardships and finally finding the back bone to stand up for myself and having finally left that terrible place and start a new life for myself. I know who I am, I know what I am not, I’m not going to let someone define who I am.
So on National Coming Out Day I want to thank everyone that has been there for me and accepted me for me. For those who pushed me harder and those who caught me when I fell. If it weren’t for you I wouldn’t be who I am today and I wouldn’t be able to be me. So if your future kids or grand kids or friends turn out to be gay, show them the support and love they deserve. It isn’t your fault and it isn’t their fault it’s just who they are. Because love is love and everyone deserves love.
