AU: Regina shows Emma some of those new 'special' memories before she leaves Storybrooke.
Swan Queen AU // When Regina gave Emma and Henry new memories, she coudn’t bear the thought of them not knowing who she was, of Emma and Henry not remembering how much she loved them, and so she included herself in their new memories.
Of course she can’t risk Emma, and especially Henry, looking for her, so she can’t give them memories where she left them. Instead she makes them think she and Emma married, had Henry and raised him together up until Henry was about ten… which is when the Regina they remember, died.
This is Regina’s way to ensure than they won’t come looking for her, but, should they ever meet again, somehow, they will recognize her.
But what if when Regina grabbed Emma’s hand she also passed her a note, one that said,
"Even if you don’t remember anything else, just remember this; I loved you, Emma Swan.
OMG seriously!!!??!!! Just when I was about to become a functioning human again you post this!!!!!!!
AU: In their last moments together, Regina confesses her love to the one person who had always seen who she truly was, despite knowing that her feelings would never be returned to her.
I JUST LOLED SO MUCH OMG
R: Something wrong?
E: No, just …
E: I. .. I can not let you go.
E: Love me
…Love me completely
is henry’s name still henry
because why the fuck would emma name him henry
what if he asks why he’s named henry
what would she say
‘you’re named after—‘ and then she stops because something there hurts but she doesn’t know what the words are.
