What could have been
"Boom! Granny’s to go. I should open a franchise."
She’s smiling and happy and gods above, he’s so in love with her.
"That’s impressive, love. And this is quite delicious.”, he says as he takes a sip of the hot chocolate that she’s just managed to magically transport to him.
“You wanna see something really impressive?”
Before he can respond, there’s a whoosh, and his hook is hanging from the light fixture.
He can’t fight the laugh that escapes him. She really is getting better at this and judging by the smile on her face, she knows it too.
"That’s bad form Swan, tampering with a man’s hook."
"Oh yeah? And what’re you gonna do about it?"
"Well, let’s just say I have uses for that hook that are much more creative, darling.”
She rolls her eyes (the smile never leaving her lips) and his heart sings with joy.
au: hook isn’t being a super lame grumpyface
For Ashley, who requested non cursed diner smut.

You can do this, Emma thought to herself as she stared at the cup of hot chocolate. Just concentrate.
She closed her eyes, willing the mug to go where she wanted it to go. Killian was sitting over at one of the booths, after volunteering to help her study. He could actually read some of the crazy languages in Regina’s spell books, so she was grateful for his help. Plus he was more fun to be around than anyone else she knew right now.
Emma’s eyes shot open when she heard a soft pop; the mug had vanished. “Boom!” she exclaimed happily, pounding her hand on the table. She felt very proud of herself. She turned around, grinning hugely, and found the mug exactly where she wanted it to go: in front of Killian. “Granny’s to go,” she explained, moving to slide into the booth across from him. “I should open a franchise.”
Killian’s too blue eyes glowed with pride, a smirk on his lips. “Impressive.”
I hate angst, but I was thinking about how TV works and how evil Adam and Eddy are. With only 4 episodes left (and 2 of them being 1 story), it just makes sense to have the TLK in one episode and the fall out in the next. Giving CS one final obstacle before they’re together together. Does that make sense? They want to maintain some kind of suspense with them through 3.22. This seems like the best way to do that and still give the audience a payoff.
