Rec: Once Upon A Time

Title: Übermorgen hol ich mir der Königin ihr Kind

Fandom: Once Upon A Time
Summary: Rumpelstiltskin really just wants a child.

It wasn’t often he got to play the hero, but he felt he should have had a white horse and ridden towards the sunset (stupid, his home was in the east, maybe easier to change the direction the sun sets in--moving was such a hassle).

He was the only one who could protect her, you see. Obvious, really. The only one. Perfectly rational, and they all saw sense, and apparently it was kind of a thing one did, onceuponatime. Gave your children up to strangers on a whim.

So he picked her up and she blinked her olive-green eyes at him and he fell in love, the kind that rips and claws and hurts. He wanted to cry, or hold too tight, teeth gritting and this, this this. His.

Then he took her to the cave he’d been living in.

“Hm,” he said, peering around with a father’s eye at the decor and the...mold. “This is not baby-friendly.”

Why *does* Rumpelstiltskin seem so obsessed with other people's babies? This is the most awesome story you will EVER READ, FOR REALS. Rumpelstiltskin's daughter is amazing and scary and brilliant.
