Fic: Best Served Cold (8/?)


Summary: First Wives’ Club AU. Reunited by the suicide of one of their friends, divorcées Belle Chevalier (née French), Emma Jones (née Swan) and Mary Margaret Nolan (née Blanchard) decide that they are not going to take the  way life has treated them lying down, and set out to make their former husbands pay. After all, revenge is a dish best served cold, with a side of Granny’s coleslaw… Eventual Rumbelle, Gremma, and Snowing, and some rather unusual side pairs.

Prologue One Two Three Four Five Six

Note: In which there is unexpected babysitting, a rather bewildered policeman, and news from the Dragon Warrior

Chapter Seven

Belle’s lazy Thursday morning re-reading The Importance of Being Earnest for the umpteenth time was interrupted by a rather urgent-sounding knock on the door. Puzzled, she went to open it, and she was rather surprised to find Rum standing outside. Even more surprising than his presence was his state of disorder; hair greasy and mussed as if he’d been raking his hands through it, tie loose around his neck and obvious grey stubble over his chin.

“Is everything all right?” she asked, alarmed.

“Yes… No… Yes… Belle, are you available for the next couple of hours? Please?”

Belle nodded.

“Could you do me a huge favour and watch Bae for me? It’s his mum, she’s driving me round the bend and I’d rather not take him with me when I go for a slanging match, but it’s so short notice…”

“Of course,” Belle said. “You go and sort out whatever it is that you need to sort out.”

“Thank you so much.”

The immensurate gratitude in his dark brown eyes was overwhelming. A few minutes later found Belle in Rum’s apartment watching as he said goodbye to his son.

Unlooked For 1/3


repeatinglitanies prompted: With the Mayor out of town to search for her runaway son, the Severe Nurse uses the nameless mental patient to make extra money…by offering the mental patient’s “services” to Mr Gold, who’s currently in the hospital for his injured leg. RumBelle, cursed AU.

Rated: Mature for mentions of physical and mental abuse, non-consensual sex, and prostitution.

So, this is my first attempt at a prompt :) and it’s one that’s sort of out of my comfort zone writing-wise, so we’ll see how I manage it… I decided to call the Severe Nurse ‘Nurse Fletcher’: anyone care to guess why? :)

Unlooked For


Nurse Fletcher has always liked the finer things in life: fine clothes, fine food, expensive jewels, and living in the lap of luxury. On her salary alone, she would never be able to afford such high living, but she’s a shrewd woman; she knows ways to make extra money. Opportunities arise from time to time and she’s quick to take advantage. It so happens that the man who keeps the asylum clean, the man they all call Chief, is no orderly but a patient himself. Nurse Fletcher seized the opportunity to replace a paid orderly with a quiet, non-troublesome patient and redirect the salary to a bank account that she holds. The hospital authorities are none the wiser, of course, and the asylum is clean, and Nurse Fletcher has a second income that she finds rather helps with her lavish lifestyle. Nobody cares about the mental patients anyway: as long as things run smoothly and there’s no trouble, Nurse Fletcher can do pretty much what she wants.

The hospital is a good place to hear gossip and Nurse Fletcher hears plenty, even down in the basement. She likes gossip generally, but she particularly likes it when she can use it to make a little extra cash. The word today is that Madam Mayor’s son has run away from home, and that Ms Mills is gone out of town on a frantic hunt for the boy. The moment she hears that bit of information, Nurse Fletcher’s mind starts to whirr, a plan forming.

There’s a girl down here that Madam Mayor has a particular interest in. Lord knows why: the girl doesn’t even have a name. Still, Mayor Mills always asks about her when she drops by every other month or so. She’s a quiet girl, docile enough, and there’s a sort of blankness about her, as if there’s no personality there. Nurse Fletcher has had ideas before about how to make some money off her, but the mayor’s explicit interest in the girl kept her from acting, but now that Ms Mills is out of town…

The girl is very pretty: with some sunlight and better food, one might even call her beautiful. She has blue eyes, clear skin, and an abundance of chestnut curls. The curls need a good brush through them and the face needs a little makeup to hide the pallor, and she’ll have to get her a dress, but Nurse Fletcher knows she can make the girl look decent for what she has in mind.

it’s almost 2014 already are we still arguing on whether to give female characters the equal amount of screentime on movies as male characters


#this is both an example of captain kirk being upset by it and of reboot being a flagrant offender

Anonymous asked: Breaking into someone's house to have sex is like something out of a Rumbelle fic tbh. Amazing.



Seriously though. Married, BatB dance, Sex in other peoples houses. All we need is Moe to be an asshole and it’s totally a Rumbelle fic.

If they broke into a Tardis to have sex the child they conceived would be a Time Lord.
