Pairing: Regina Mills/Emma Swan
Fandom: Once Upon A Time
After they return from Neverland, Henry decides to set a parent trap for Emma and Regina. By the time Emma realizes what he’s up to, she’s already half in love with Regina and it’s pretty much too late to do anything about it.
This was my first Swan Queen fic, and yeah, I can see why the ship is popular. It’s tension and badassery and, of course, it’s domestic because there’s a child involved. Did I just find myself boarding a new ship? Probably. Do I regret it? Not a chance.
As an occasional OUAT watcher, I haven’t really gotten into the fanfic, but apparently if you ask for femslash recs on Twitter, 78% of them will be Swan Queen. This one I absolutely fell in love with because (1) parent trap and (2) domestic fluff. Regina making lasagna? Emma helping their son with school projects? Thanksgiving with the Charmings? Oh hell yes. I love that it is Henry’s meddling that stirs Emma’s interest in Regina, and then later, well, it’s just a bit like gravity.
Read if you love Swan Queen and femslash.
