OQ FF: Quod Verus Amor Est Anathemate

Summary: There is a black secret hidden between the words “happily ever after”: when True Love sparks to life, if affection will not keep the fated together, compulsion surely will. (Angsty Outlaw Queen)

A/N: After the finale, I was full of hurt and angst on Regina’s behalf. Sadly, when I need to get those feelings out, usually a darker story emerges. So, I apologize. For everything. (And promise that the majority of the fic I write for these two will have a happy ending.)

I’m going with the idea that Robin doesn’t chase after Regina when she leaves Granny’s in the finale. (So, according to recent spoilers, this is already a canon divergence.)

WARNING: One bout of infidelity (non-explicit, but adult enough to get the M-rating)

(Also on FFnet and AO3)

Quod Verus Amor Est Anathemate
(True Love is a Curse)

Pixie dust never lies, Tinkerbell once said.

But neither does it tell the whole truth.

There is a little black secret about True Love, Regina learns. A dark truth hidden between the words “happily ever after” in Henry’s book. One which could corrupt the soul of even the purest of heroes and obliterate charcoaled hearts like hers.

Because when True Love sparks to life, if affection will not keep the fated together, compulsion surely will.

Happiest anniversary to my wonderful wife! This past year has been fun, hectic, and exactly the adventure you promised it would be. We moved to Pennsylvania, you started a new job, I finally got work at a library, and only two people asked us when we were planning on having kids! We got our marriage license from the State of Pennsylvania in May, starting last week I was covered under your health benefits, and three days ago, my dad said you were his favorite daughter-in-law—the first time either of my parents have recognized our marriage.

I’d say we’re doing alright, my love.

1st Anniversary Special!
