    Summary

    Soulmates are for the privileged few, the good, the fairytale heroes. Soulmates are for love stories, and Regina’s love has only ended in pain and loss. A soulmate would be a waste of her ability, and she persuades herself of it so vehemently that she can stand naked in her castle, surrounded by mirrors, and pretend that she isn’t searching for a tattoo on her skin anymore.

     

    She casts a curse, rides to a castle to find a savior, and wakes up in a strange house that is to be home from now on. She’s won, and it’s never felt so fitting.

    When she dresses for her first day as mayor, she sees it: an intricate mark against the tan skin just beneath her breast, shaped like a sunburst with a web woven through it. It’s a new world, it’s a new destiny, and she touches her mark and is as afraid as she is wondering.

    Written for Swan Queen Week Day 4: Soulmate AU.

    Summary

    Leighton Murray has never been one to believe in soulmates, at least not in the way others do.

    The proof is indisputable, sure, and she feels it with every injury she sustains that isn't of her own doing. The trauma link is damning, but she was never raised to put much stock into the whole phenomenon. In her world, people don't marry for love; marriage is a consolidation of wealth, power, and reputation, and that's just what her parent's want for her too.

    So, when she runs headfirst into an exhausted PhD student at a coffee shop, she thinks nothing of it.

    But then, she's there at dinner.

    And then, her wallet is left behind, and Leighton is tasked with returning it.

    The coincidences are stacking up, and Leighton's too logical to think much of it, but the universe may have other plans for her, and it's not going to take no for an answer.

    Summary

    "Niko huffs and actually kicks her feet, as if to get out extra energy, and then wheezes, 'Iwantyoutofreezemeduringsex.'

    It’s all one breath, and it takes a few seconds for Mel’s brain to pick apart the melted syllables. 'You… want me to freeze you… in bed.'"
