Fan Fiction

A few recommended reads for the weekend, submitted by authors and fans. Here's our top picks:

Take Me Home Tonight by MadameMayorRM (Emma & Regina/AU): 19-year-old Emma Swan is a senior at the exclusive all girls boarding school, Foxhaven Academy. 

Of Imps and Queens series by Loosely Bound (Emma & Regina/AU): Post episode 4x23, Emma becomes the Dark One and learns nothing is quite as it seems or as simple as black versus white. When Regina removes the curse no one in Storybrooke is prepared for the far-reaching fallout which leaves none of their lives unaltered or untouched, least of all Regina's.

By Process Of Elimination by hope2x (Emma & Regina): Based loosely on the concept from What Happens In Vegas. Always competing, Emma and Regina find themselves getting just a bit carried away one night. In the morning both are shocked to find their situation has changed and in a town with magic, not everything is so easily fixed. 


Evening Times:
