"It’s been 14 years, and still not a day goes by that I don’t miss your dad."

Yesterday, we were just children


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

blink of an eye; everything’s changed


"Apart from my transformations, I was happier than I had ever been in my life. For the first time ever, I had friends, three great friends. Sirius Black, Peter Pettigrew, and, of course, your father, Harry  James Potter. Now, my three friends could hardly fail to notice that I disappeared once a month. I made up all sorts of stories. I told them my mother was ill, and that I had to go home to see her…I was terrified they would desert me the moment they found out what I was. But of course, they worked out the truth…And they didn’t desert me at all.”


emma swan: courageous and hot-headed, emma came into hogwarts as an orphan from over the seas on mcgonagall’s special request. she was sorted into gryffindor for her strong will and brave spirit, however emma recklessness and disregard for rules often gets her in trouble. especially when she finds herself befriending a slytherin girl, someone her best friends david and snow do not approve of in the slightest.

regina mills: coming from an ancient pure blood family of witches, regina was sorted into slytherin for her leadership qualities and ambition to learn magic in order to become an auror. her mother cora became the ministeress of magic and imposed many anti-muggles laws, enraging the current headmistress of hogwarts, minerva mcgonagall and ever since the ministry tried to bring her down from her post. regina does not follow in her mother’s footsteps, cunningly knowing that in order to help keep hogwarts a safe place for all, she has to pretend to work with her mother for inside information: and only emma swan know where regina’s heart and loyalties truly lie.

"Where would you put something you wouldn’t want me to find?" Snape asked, trying to explain the usefulness of an Personified Avoidance Potion.

"The back of a shampoo bottle," Regina muttered to herself. She heard a faint giggle and as she looked around, she saw Swan looking at her.

Before she could remember that they don’t like each, Regina smiled at the blonde and held her gaze with no sign of actual hatred. 

After all, she was really funny.


au: hogwarts

After the boys left, Regina struggled to catch her breath the curse had knocked out of her lungs. As she turned around to glance at the girl who  chased the attackers away, a concerned voice dissolved her foggy thoughts.

"Are you alright?" 

Regina’s vision focused on the blonde. That Griffindor idiot, she thought.

"Go away, Swan," Regina growled. Last thing she needed was for the Swan girl to see her humiliated like that. Weak, knocked out by a simple stunning curse - not even well cast, as she could still move even though every movement hurt.

"A simple thank you would be enough, you know. I just saved your sorry ass here, Mills, those two jerks could have easily done worse than a half-ass stunning curse," Emma Swan said in a voice that sounded more hurt than offended.

"I had it under control. How come you’re even here, last time I checked the Griffindors were too goody-shoed to wander around the castle after curfew."

"I heard them talking about ganging up on you after what happened to McGonagall, they think you are supplying inside information to your mother at the Ministry."

Emma seemed to be blushing. Regina could say she was lying when she said next: “I did not want my house to lose any more points for their hot headed actions.”

"I didn’t need your help," Regina said. They both knew she was lying, too.


au: in first year, they hated to be even near each other. in second year and third year, they mostly ignored each other and worked in silence during potions. in fourth year emma punched regina’s date at yule ball and by sixth year regina made sure no one will be able to turn emma’s ex-boyfriend’s hook-hand into a normal one again. during the seventh year of studying magic at hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry, it came as no surprise that they were irrevocably in love.
