Fanfic Friday: OUAT — The Best Fanfics Chosen By The Fandom Part 2

Become a Patron!

The Once Upon A Time fandom loved our previous Fanfic Friday post so much that they requested a part two. So, here it is, with a few new fics and ships.

I have once again included what is usually known as the two largest OUAT ship fanbases, Captain Swan and Swan Queen. But, we have some fic recommendations for fans who ship Golden Queen, Evil Charming, and Hooked Queen also.

So, grab a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy finding some amazing fics that just about fit the bill for your needs.


Captain Swan – Hook/Emma:

1. Knock Knock by charmedtomeetyou

Emma Swan has made the best of her crappy apartment ever since she became best friends with her neighbour, Ruby. But when Ruby moves out, and a loud Brit takes her place, the thin walls and lack of space are suddenly not so endearing. After a particularly stressful day, Emma decides to confront the nightmare next door, and entirely against her better judgment, she might just be making a friend.

2. Stardust in Your Skin by midwestwind

Emma Swan may believe in magic and curses and fairy tales, but she absolutely does not believe in soulmates.

3. Do You Love Me by hooknleather

Why would she visit that damned, irritating pirate? Emma Swan doesn’t know, but something about Hook makes her want to let go and do things she hasn’t in a long while; what happens when she decides to give into temptation..?

4. You Play Ball Like A Girl by WelpThisIsHappening

Emma Swan had a plan. Get the story. Get the byline. Up her Twitter follower count. It was simple – she was going to take over the New York City journalism world. And she was going to do it from the sideline with a credential around her neck and a pen stuffed in her hair and a fierce determination no one was going to be able to put a dent in.

It was the perfect plan.

That plan just failed to factor in Killian Jones.

5. not a romcom movie by emmaofmisthaven

“I’m not interested in being made the butt monkey of the school or being some social experiment where you’re trying to have me elected prom king or what have you until we realize we’ve been falling in love all along and have our first kiss on an Adele song. Not interested. Savvy?”
“I – I’m not planning to fall in love with you.”
“Good. Neither am I.”


Swan Queen – Regina/Emma:

1. Temporary Distractions by amycarey

“Oh, I don’t know,” Regina says. “It makes a certain amount of sense on paper. Henry’s two mothers, all that fighting, making magic together, tentative trust built. Destroyed of course, but Robin needn’t know that. Plus, I knew it would really irritate him.”
Emma wants to ask why but also doesn’t want to push her luck. “And you expect me to go along with this?”
“I don’t know how else to put this, Ms. Swan,” Regina says, leaning forward. “You owe me, and I’m calling to collect.”

It’s been a month, and Regina won’t speak to her until she does, and Emma is left pretending to be in a relationship with her so that Regina can get through a dinner invitation with her pride intact.

2. Right There All the Time by devje
