    Summary

    Queen Regina is a portrait of self-loathing, drowning in the loss of control that has repeatedly been stripped from her since she was a child. Most call her Evil, and she doesn’t doubt that she is, for her black heart is filled with nothing but violence and contempt, hatred and malice. Darkness has infected her for so long now, that she knows it is only a matter of time before it consumes her... before it kills her.

    Destiny, however, has other plans.

    One fateful night, the Queen's guards capture a man, a thief she is unable to break, even when she tortures him with her worst punishments. Regina quickly becomes infatuated with him, obsessed with exercising control over something of her own, almost enjoying the way he distracts her from the rest of her hellish life. But the Thief has his own agenda, and if he has his way, he won’t be the only one getting punished.

    Summary

    Of course, Emma was right there by Henry's side as she watched her son mourn for his mother that wasn’t dead, simply trapped in an eternal cursed sleep; a fitting punishment, Emma’s own mother and father had decided, for the woman that had cursed a realm to sleepwalk away 28 years of their lives in a small town in Maine.

    That’s how it would have, no doubt, continued had Henry not sneezed.

    Or Simply:

    Regina has been sentenced to living the rest of her life under a sleeping curse as punishment for enacting the Dark Curse; Henry is devastated and begs Emma to read to her when he's too unwell to visit Regina at the hospital.

    Summary

    It would be slightly suspicious if she’d just given the one apple turnover to Emma Swan without explanations, thus Regina baked two apple turnovers just in case. Her plan would have had a higher success rate if she’d actually marked which apple turnover was which…

    Unfortunately, she did not.

    Set in Season 1 - Canon Divergence from An Apple Red As Blood.

    Summary

    Effie spends her first years in Twelve, wondering how different her life would have been in the Capitol. Certainly, her hands would still be smooth and free of callouses, but she knows there would be invisible blood staining her palms and coating her soul the longer she had stayed.

    Haymitch wonders if it would have been easier to fade into obscurity as Twelve's only victor finding solace at the bottom of the bottle or in a bed not his own. The arrival of the Capitol girl ruins his plans to fade away.

    Loneliness is a dangerous disease that infects them by tearing away their skin and leaving them raw for years.
