Ch.6: OUAT/VD/Originals: Radiant Endingcopyright protection3PENANApUGw7FCiqQ

Summary: Set a few years after VD S5 when Kat died, and Originals S4 in the future. Kat ends up in Storybrooke after escaping the 1994 prison world. Elijah also ends up there. Will they get back together? Also, set in OUAT S5 all the way to the ending of 5x11, but Hook doesn’t need to die for the Darkness to be defeated. When Kat finds out everything about everyone and what happened with Emma, she helps Hook find a way to get Emma back, only for Hook to find out that she made him into The Dark One, instead of letting him die back in Camelot. Now he’s seeking revenge, which he fails at getting. Will Hook be saved? Will Emma and Hook ever be okay again? Can they move past what Hook did as The Dark One and what Emma did as The Dark One? What will ensue?copyright protection3PENANAbV84fW8jBb

  It was a dismal night, as Katherine, human and injured, layed in some woods after escaping the 1994 prison world, which had held Kai. She’d escaped him and left him there. She didn’t recognize these woods, though. She wanted to find out where she was, but she was too injured. Then everything went black for her.copyright protection3PENANAWIuD9gZ47l

            Elijah didn’t know how or why, but awhile after Marcel had been defeated, he suddenly appeared in unfamiliar woods. Then, when he saw her, he assumed why he was brought here.copyright protection3PENANALxfs4m7GFy

            “Katerina.”copyright protection3PENANAxQuGVKC43d

            He blurred to her side, where he saw the injuries she had. Her shoulder and lower stomach looked like she’d been stabbed. Her lower stomach was heavily bleeding and there was a dagger in her thigh, which had opened the artery in her thigh. There was blood on either side of her head and an arrow in her side. He also saw an ascendant not far from her. That’s when he knew that sometime after he’d left her and the present, she’d ended up in a prison world.copyright protection3PENANAg0VLD52D99

            After realizing this, he used his vamp senses to check what condition she was in, other than the obvious that had happened to her. When he did, he realized that it was worse than he thought it was.copyright protection3PENANAZUHenMBvtg

            He bent down and kissed her, giving her some air, trying to revive her. He didn’t want to lose her, but there wasn’t much he could do. He could only hope that he could save her.copyright protection3PENANA317yH3ik7m

            “Come back to me, Katerina.”copyright protection3PENANAynmt80zaEI

            After trying to revive her for twenty minutes, he heard a heartbeat from her, though she didn’t awaken. It relieved him though, that she was alive. Though he’d left her, he still loved her.copyright protection3PENANAkDD2S0Ptvj

            He slid an arm under her legs and his other one under her. Then he gently picked her up in his arms and blurred out of the woods and went in search of the nearest hospital.copyright protection3PENANAKzkR71Uql2

            A few hours later, he was seated on her bedside, waiting for her to awaken. She’d made it through surgery and would luckily, be okay.copyright protection3PENANANUq9nzaWKP

            He rested a hand on hers and another on the side of her face.copyright protection3PENANAF4si7ljXOP

            “I’m so sorry, Katerina. I never should have left. I at least should have made sure you were okay,” he apologized, though he wasn’t sure if she could hear him.copyright protection3PENANAgzoBqwClXY

            As Elijah waited for his Katerina to awaken, someone walked in.copyright protection3PENANAoKSOUgn5d7

            “I hate to intrude, but we need to know who and what you are,” the girl told him. “I make it my business to know all the residence here.”copyright protection3PENANAUTcmckHvhw

            “I guess you won’t be stopping until you find out, so I might as well tell you. I’m Elijah Mikaelson and though I call her by her born name, she is known as Katherine Pierce. I’m an Original vampire; one of the first made vampires. Katerina was a vampire, though I do not know how she became human again,” he informed her.copyright protection3PENANAly5K9whMSe

            “My name’s Regina Mills,” she introduced herself. “I’m the mayor of Storybrooke.”copyright protection3PENANALgZE5TUsZ8

            “Storybrooke?” he quizzed.copyright protection3PENANAAT2Nfe7XKp

            “Yes. I’m the one that created this town. All the fairytales you’ve ever heard of exists,” she explained to him. “Now how did you get here?”copyright protection3PENANAu5XAP666SY

            “I don’t know why or how. I just know that we suddenly appeared here. I came from New Orleans. I assume Katerina came from a prison world, though she was in Mystic Falls when I saw her last.”copyright protection3PENANAlEflikfdNe

            “Well, welcome to Storybrooke, then,” she replied.copyright protection3PENANAmo7obnCjkm

            “You say this town is full of fairytales, so who may you be, Miss Mills?”copyright protection3PENANAIPsFphMvoF

            “I used to be the Evil Queen. You can call me Regina. Everyone else does. I don’t know anything about vampires, nor have I heard of a vampire before, but if either of you is hungry, you can go to Granny’s. If you need a place to stay, I’m sure Granny could get you a room. Or two. You could also ask Charming and Snow for a place too, or look for your own place. If you’re staying, I’m sure you’ll like it here.”copyright protection3PENANAuKjK5B4kOS

            “Thanks for the advice, Regina,” he replied.copyright protection3PENANAyagFzr2bKn

            She turned around to leave.copyright protection3PENANAytc09CiV8G

            He watched her go, and then looked down at Katerina, once again.copyright protection3PENANABCqUmwwrQl

            When Katherine woke up, she saw that she was in a hospital bed, Elijah seated on her bedside. Because of this, she realized that he had appeared sometime after she had, and had saved her life and brought her here. She didn’t expect anything less. She knew he’d always be there in an instant if he knew she needed him.copyright protection3PENANAjovz4516gM

            She smiled and he smiled back.copyright protection3PENANAuPgHPpj7kr

            “You’re awake,” he greeted.copyright protection3PENANAOW4fQrLmSB

            “And you’re here,” she greeted back. “You saved my life. Thanks.”copyright protection3PENANAHc0dM4iObz

            “I’ll always save you no matter what, Katerina. You know that,” he responded.copyright protection3PENANABFoRnegGlB

            He took his hands away from her.copyright protection3PENANA89xdpoEaKx

            She sat up in bed.copyright protection3PENANALsKLGxQYl1

            “And yet you didn’t bother to call to make sure I was okay or not,” she retorted.copyright protection3PENANAyWHWN4a4Lw

            He rested a hand on hers.copyright protection3PENANAFUGd75BMfm

            “Whatever happened, Katerina, I’m so sorry. I was unaware that you needed me. You never called me, so how was I to know that you were in trouble? I would have come if I had known that you needed me. Always.”copyright protection3PENANAk1O5NuCDtX

            “That doesn’t change the fact that you didn’t bother to check up on me after you left. You want to know what happened, Elijah? The cure was shoved down my throat and time caught up with me.”copyright protection3PENANAE1TmYHq9Lc

            “I’m sorry, Katerina. I had no idea. If I had known, I would have come. I would have been there. I hope someday that you may forgive me.”copyright protection3PENANAFr7mEerg1H

            “Maybe someday, but not anytime soon,” she replied to him. “Now when do I get out of here, and where are we exactly?”copyright protection3PENANACmIqsvU49o

            “We’re in a town called Storybrooke,” he answered her. “You can go when you’re ready.”copyright protection3PENANA2NpWaoDAxp

            “Well, I’m ready now,” she replied.copyright protection3PENANANdQUAv91Lb

            A few minutes later, she was out of the hospital and they were at the bar in Granny’s Diner.copyright protection3PENANAJnysN0XI46

            She’d just eaten and they were having a shot glass of bourbon each, when a boy sat next to them, whom had a book with him.copyright protection3PENANA66Uw24UGFs

            “Hi, I’m Henry. Who are you?” he asked them.copyright protection3PENANA5tFWofrxhc

            They looked at him.copyright protection3PENANAI1Ahtohr6l

            She was the one whom introduced them to him.copyright protection3PENANAydstJvxEbd

            “I’m Katherine and this is Elijah. He’s a vampire and I used to be one until the cure for vampirism got shoved down my throat. I’ve been human ever since. What’s with the book?”copyright protection3PENANA6gHMc52ECk

            “It’s magical. When someone new comes to town, a new story appears.”copyright protection3PENANARllrCOPUfW

            He looked through the book.copyright protection3PENANAgN9IhTdPxo

            She watched him.copyright protection3PENANA2EFKrSPtws

            He stopped at a page.copyright protection3PENANANnO8PrXElc

            “Your story is in the book now.”copyright protection3PENANABB0KkhEx6c

            She looked at the story. That’s when she believed. She also realized why this town was called Storybrooke.copyright protection3PENANAW9QCUhuJL0

            After she realized all of this, Henry spoke again.copyright protection3PENANAcyo0HdsESN

            “Are you going to be together?”copyright protection3PENANARtpSeJaThg

            She knew he was referring to her and Elijah.copyright protection3PENANA5dqWPkdk4Z

            “I don’t know. I’m not good at forgiveness and Elijah did leave.”copyright protection3PENANAkgxJheXJTQ

            “Do you still love each other?”copyright protection3PENANAxKkWCzGMsX

            “Of course. We always will,” she allegated.copyright protection3PENANA3xbut0PHkT

            “Then you should be together. He’s your true love. You’re meant to be together,” he replied.copyright protection3PENANAGFaepstncm

            “It’s not that simple, Henry. Sometimes love doesn’t work out, even if you still love that person. Besides, I have to learn to trust him again after he left. I understand his loyalty to his family, but it still hurts that he chose his brother over me, yet again. He may love me, but he never chooses me, even when he doesn’t need to help his family,” she explained.copyright protection3PENANAdJ7xGJ6mwy

            “I should get going, but I’ll see you later,” Henry told her.copyright protection3PENANAjA6v4zvThQ

            She watched him go.copyright protection3PENANANYwYcWqFjC

            They finished their shot glass of bourbon each.copyright protection3PENANA2wm942Tbpq

            Afterward, they got a room, and then went for a walk through town once they had met everyone, apart from Hook and Emma, and had been told of the recent news. They wanted to get to know the town.copyright protection3PENANAKJ0Qe4qKYI

            They stopped, seeing Hook on a roof, trying to summon Emma. His look was what gave away who he was.copyright protection3PENANABLG7JS4ayn

            A moment later, they saw a girl they assumed was Emma, appear, and Hook suddenly appeared on the ground, in front of Emma.copyright protection3PENANANBU9KYcEaB

            They watched silently, as Emma and Hook spoke.copyright protection3PENANA4Ul4Lz9cj7

            After they saw Emma disappear, Katherine asked Elijah to go and he decided to go to their room.copyright protection3PENANAUVSB2Ct6M2

            Katherine approached Hook.copyright protection3PENANAuzDoJonV3x

            “I can help you save her if you want.”copyright protection3PENANAx7sScdrlqL

            He looked at her.copyright protection3PENANAslGlWJXpQK

            “Who are you?”copyright protection3PENANAskk6J3u6Zx

            “Katherine. Elijah and I are new in town. I couldn’t help but overhear. You love her, don’t you? I heard about what happened to Emma, but she can be saved. Love isn’t always enough to break the hold the darkness has on someone you love. I was never the Dark One, but I did many terrible things. Elijah tried to find a way to redeem me, but it didn’t work, no matter how much we will always love each other. I got myself in too deep and lost myself. I wish I could take back the evil I did, but I can’t. Worst of all, I hurt the people I love by lying to them and broke their hearts. In the end, I had to learn on my own how I could redeem myself. When Elijah left, I learned the hard way that it was time that I changed. Sometimes a person needs tough love to make them realize that by doing bad things, they’re pushing those they love away.”copyright protection3PENANADwF5pRjQcK

            “How do you suggest that you help me save Emma from herself?” he catechized.copyright protection3PENANACF5j013XrU

            “Just make her see that she’s going to end up alone forever if she keeps lying, deceiving, and doing evil things. If she loves you enough, she’ll come to her senses, believe me. I did and I’m as stubborn as they come,” she remarked.copyright protection3PENANAITe20Y6v45

            “Shall we discuss this tomorrow, luv?”copyright protection3PENANA3ICIO1A7SN

            “We shall.”copyright protection3PENANASvsXOsYSqq

            They smiled at each other.copyright protection3PENANAM8k1bkZhP3

            The next day, Katherine was at the bar, having a drink, when Hook went to sit next to her. When he did, she knew why he was there. Since their talk last night, she’d been thinking of a plan to get Emma to let go of the darkness. If she of all people could finally get redemption, Emma of all people should be able to get hers and be happy.copyright protection3PENANAnSMZBA1bIT

            “Captain,” Katherine greeted. Then she asked him, “You know Emma well, or rather, the Dark One. Where would she be staying at? We could go together. I may be just human, but I also have a little magic of my own if I need to defend myself. But that’ll be the last resort. I wouldn’t want harm to come to anyone. I never used to care, but since things have changed for me, I’ve started to care about others, instead of just myself and Elijah.”copyright protection3PENANAYAoqxdTw5j

            “I may know where Emma’s living. There’s a house secluded away from town,” he informed her. “What do you have in mind, luv?”copyright protection3PENANAWRshSDBSVr

            Katherine looked at him.copyright protection3PENANAWjjIjVik60

            “We’re going to get the old Emma back one way or another.”copyright protection3PENANAe5BDw8QpFW

            She finished her shot glass of Bourbon.copyright protection3PENANAJBObSHPuzL

            “Then let’s go, luv,” Hook said, and got to his feet, as she got to hers.copyright protection3PENANAVv4fenaxHh

            They headed out the door.copyright protection3PENANAxWn9zUhpkX

            Once at the house, she was cautious in case a barrier spell was on the house. She was right about the barrier spell, so she used some magic to break it, which worked. They then entered the house and searched around for Emma.copyright protection3PENANAl3zafsR5Wq

            When she found that the basement door was locked, she used magic to unlock it and they headed downstairs to see what she was hiding down there. Katherine knew the only reason for a locked door was usually to hide something.copyright protection3PENANAQSWU7ahiHZ

            When Katherine and Hook went downstairs, they found a sword in a stone. It reminded Katherine of the story of King Arthur, before he’d been a king. She knew from the sight of the sword in the stone, Emma must’ve brought it from the Enchanted Forest, though she didn’t know that Emma was ever there, since she’d only just come to town not that long ago.copyright protection3PENANAAfVYouSGUc

            “The Excalibur sword,” Hook commented, when he saw it.copyright protection3PENANADggcqvEhAB

            “Indeed,” Katherine agreed. copyright protection3PENANAIrtElBODUw

            When Katherine sensed someone else’s presence, she turned around to see a girl in black come from the darkness. She assumed that this was the new Dark One; Emma.copyright protection3PENANACuLyta3lQX

            Hook looking in the direction that Katherine did to see what Katherine had sensed, and saw Emma there.copyright protection3PENANAyueOGEklWV

            “You shouldn’t be down here,” Emma warned Hook. Then she looked at Katherine. “Who the hell are you?”copyright protection3PENANAWEmpiH17kV

            “Katherine. Someone you don’t want to mess with. I’m doing Hook a favor. I’m going to save you, if it’s the last thing I do,” she replied to Emma. “You may be the Dark One, but that doesn’t mean you have to act like one. I’ve done many horrific things in my life as a 538 year old vampire, though I was never the Dark One. I might as well have been, though. Everything I did, I thought I was doing to survive and stay ahead of my greatest enemy, Klaus, but in doing all those things, I lost myself. It took being reunited with my daughter, to decide to change into a better person. I found myself again and was saved. You can be saved too. You may not want to be saved or think you need to be saved, but I will help Hook bring you back from the edge. Elijah brought me back from the edge many times. Hook and I can do the same for you. Now, I don’t have the slightest clue what you plan on doing with that sword, but we’ll stop you and bring you back from the edge, no matter what. When I set my mind on something, there’s no stopping me or changing my mind,” Katherine informed her.copyright protection3PENANADXqpwTzzfq

            Emma wasn’t sure what to say to that, for once.copyright protection3PENANAxNULCBqWXn

            Katherine headed for the stairs.copyright protection3PENANART1djkVksg

            “Let’s go,” she told Hook.copyright protection3PENANAg5eGvKz5kO

            Hook followed her out.copyright protection3PENANAwRCrDe24a0

            Half an hour later, they were back in town.copyright protection3PENANAr2UtgdNcyg

            Hook parted from Katherine to go to his ship, while she went back to the diner.copyright protection3PENANAsPlHvRr5XM

            Katherine sat at the bar and ordered a shot glass of Bourbon. As usual.copyright protection3PENANATtDvUhJXmU

            Ruby poured her her drink.copyright protection3PENANAXNXRhd55pE

            “Rough day?”copyright protection3PENANAlStHzZy14v

            “You could say that. I’m going to assume that you might have some experience with Dark Ones. You guys know Emma. If love can’t save her, what will? I’m good at plans, but I can’t make much of a plan to save her from the Darkness if I don’t know her or know what she cares about, other than Hook.”copyright protection3PENANANYYrtTJdQ5

            “You should talk to Gold or Belle. Belle’s got a lot of experience with trying to save the Dark One and Gold was the Dark One before Emma became it,” Ruby informed her.copyright protection3PENANA8OT5FajLfI

            “Thanks. Where would I find them?” she questioned her.copyright protection3PENANAqABUibTQcX

            “Gold’s pawn shop,” she answered her.copyright protection3PENANAm0VlrpebD5

            “I’ll talk to them then. Thanks for your help.”copyright protection3PENANAgLTaRykakA

            Katherine finished up her drink and then left the diner to go to the shop. She was going to get to know all about The Dark One and how to save one, no matter what. She wouldn’t let Hook lose his happy ending. He’d already lost too much in the past. If Hook couldn’t save Emma from the darkness, then maybe she could.copyright protection3PENANATKbuEtGykT

            Fifteen minutes later, she entered the pawn shop and approached the glass counter, as a guy with a cane came from the back.copyright protection3PENANAwGTr2lRgwv

            “How can I help you, dearie?” he inquired.copyright protection3PENANAlNgfX8Oii8

            “I’m going to assume that you’re Gold or Rumpelstiltskin. Whatever you want to be called. You were The Dark One for a very long time, I hear. I may be new in town, but I’d like to help save Emma from the darkness. My name is Katherine.”copyright protection3PENANASbT3Gxxn6R

            “Well, that, dearie, is easier said than done. Emma was the savior of this town before she became the Dark One. She defeated many villains in this town. Now that she’s the Dark One, you’ll have your work cut out for you trying to save her. I had many chances with Belle while I was the Dark One, but I always chose power over love and family. In doing so, I lost my son and killed my wife. There was a time I even believed that no one could ever love me. Belle always saw the man behind the beast though, no matter what,” he shared with her.copyright protection3PENANAgCy94AvVQ1

            “I know the feeling,” she replied. “I lost my daughter and my family. Elijah even left because he gave up on my redemption. When I was reunited with my daughter though, it made me want to change, and I changed for the better. I redeemed myself. Thanks, Gold.”copyright protection3PENANArcPIsMQg58

            He watched, as she left his shop.copyright protection3PENANAoXki11QyoW

            After figuring out a way to get Emma back, he did as Katherine had suggested, and used his love he had for her. So, they had dinner below the deck on the Jolly Roger, but it didn’t pan out very well. Things were said and as they stood in front of each other, she told him, “If you tell me you don’t love me, I’ll let you go.”copyright protection3PENANAqFyYOCyjyp

            He took a moment and then, hating saying this, said, “I loved you.”copyright protection3PENANAlZCbH4Xxk2

            After he told her that, she disappeared.copyright protection3PENANAGJ01113SAr

            After Regina broke into the house and discovered a dreamcatcher that catches memories, she took it with her and left. Then she informed the others.copyright protection3PENANAO07nYVZxfy

            After Hook found out about the dreamcatchers, he took it upon himself to confront Emma, trying, once again, to get her to tell him the truth. Otherwise, he’d have to see for himself through the dreamcatcher. She wouldn’t tell him, so he used the dreamcatcher and soon found out the truth about what happened in Camelot. He’d asked her to just let him die, but instead, she turned him into a second Dark One. He was angry at her for doing that to him. She hadn’t respected his wishes. Now she’d done the worse thing she could to him. Now, he was going to do everything possible to hurt her the way she’d hurt him.copyright protection3PENANAWBxyMfCKNX

            Katherine entered the basement of the house, half an hour later, and approached the stone with the Excalibur sword. After finding out all she could about it, she knew what she had to do. She had to get the sword away from Emma to keep her from destroying light altogether. The only way she felt that was possible was by pulling it out. And so, she grabbed the sword and began to pull it out, not knowing if it would work or not. She wasn’t exactly a hero. At least, she didn’t think she was or ever would be. But then, she succeeded in pulling it out, and so, she took it to where they were still talking at Regina’s office, about the dreamcatchers and how to stop Emma.copyright protection3PENANANtHOvJQyBq

            She entered with the sword and put it on Regina’s desk.copyright protection3PENANA0pr7Mq3MXi

            “We don’t need to worry about her using the Excalibur anymore. Now we have it.”copyright protection3PENANAkTUSsH75rV

            After they left Regina’s office, Snow, Regina, Charming, Elijah, and Katherine went to the house to go find Emma.copyright protection3PENANA2fpK3UtTs4

            “I’ll take the basement,” Charming said.copyright protection3PENANAktuLAhcD39

            “I’ll check the upstairs,” Regina said.copyright protection3PENANAWo3QhvypBZ

            Snow opened the door and they all walked in and began looking around for her.copyright protection3PENANAkDeJoiDRb6

            After Regina went upstairs and Charming to the basement, and Katherine and Snow called Emma’s name a few times, Katherine and Snow found Emma in the living room, on the couch, with the black thing around her wrist which was stopping her from doing any magic.copyright protection3PENANAVwzqh9HtNL

            Snow knelt in front of her.copyright protection3PENANADK9GBrc9QN

            “Hey. What happened?”copyright protection3PENANA8arnUPGxGR

            Katherine approached and Elijah followed.copyright protection3PENANAECod2FnJ9b

            After Charming and Regina were downstairs and the black thing was off Emma’s wrist, Emma informed them.copyright protection3PENANAuNVEuw5GFV

            Afterward, Regina whom was seated on the opposite end of the couch, said, “You turned Hook into The Dark One?”copyright protection3PENANAtO6Vc0KSyr

            “Yeah. In order to save him,” she told her.copyright protection3PENANAKc38q6ONPY

            Snow handed her a drink.copyright protection3PENANAZkLUZfq4W6

            “And you didn’t think of the consequences to everyone else?” Regina asked.copyright protection3PENANA0qV7l776ZF

            “I couldn’t just let him die. You could understand that.”copyright protection3PENANAxKSBSiHH6x

            “Well, yes, but…,” Regina began, mad at what she’d done since Regina knew very well all about Hook, and was afraid of what Hook might do. She refrained from saying the rest of that sentence and said, “Now we have a bigger problem.”copyright protection3PENANAF5SrZRHqWD

            “I know. I didn’t think any of this would happen,” Emma replied. “I was trying to get rid of the Darkness for good. You can’t tell me that after everything Zelena’s done to you, that your life wouldn’t be easier if she were gone. I was doing you a favor.”copyright protection3PENANAxX3s4pzbvz

            Snow sat in a wooden chair.copyright protection3PENANAR3jJEc2mT8

            “Come on. It’s premeditated murder, Emma. There had to be another way. You should have come to us.”copyright protection3PENANATydL0dCHEz

            “And risk losing someone else? I thought the best way to control the Darkness was to isolate myself, but when I did that, there was no one around to tell me when I was wrong or when I was being stupid.”copyright protection3PENANAkbwoDANdMj

            “Fine. You’re being stupid. So, stop it,” Regina interjected and went to stand behind the couch. “Right now, we have to clean up this mess.”copyright protection3PENANAMDm6n1ipnb

            “No. We don’t,” Snow disagreed. Then she looked at her daughter. “Give us back our memories. Your dreamcatchers. Regina can access them, can’t she? We can piece together Hook’s plan and stop him.”copyright protection3PENANAygKL2KYFrC

            “I’m afraid not,” Charming interjected, as he walked in. “The dreamcatchers. You said they were in the shed? They’re gone.”copyright protection3PENANAeMOKarlYF7

            “What the hell is Captain Dark One up to?” Regina questioned.copyright protection3PENANAirLEx9FQy3

            Katherine sat on the couch by Emma.copyright protection3PENANA16kMSmwR2Y

            “Well, whatever it is, it can’t be good. Especially, when he’s embraced it altogether. I know first-hand that it’s almost impossible to let go of any kind of darkness, but with love and patience, it can be stopped.”copyright protection3PENANAuhKi2VKnUp

            Elijah sat next to Katerina and was silent, knowing what she meant, all too well.copyright protection3PENANAucRgRppxfY

            Meanwhile, Hook was at the shop where Belle was at, Rumple next to her.copyright protection3PENANAAg5U3XhzPj

            “Emma turned you into the Dark One?” Belle questioned.copyright protection3PENANAxkAiCCen09

            “And now you’ve come for your revenge,” Rumple stated.copyright protection3PENANANvmELd4bKj

            “The thought crossed my mind. For this lovely piece of hardware, I think I’ll take your hand. For Mila; for your heart; for filling Emma with the Darkness. I think your head will do quite nicely.”copyright protection3PENANA9kAefDcwd2

            “So, what are you waiting for?” Rumple questioned him. “Get on with it.”copyright protection3PENANAQLmr4Z4in4

            “No, no, no, no, no. I’ve been waiting centuries for this moment. I really want to savor it.” He slid a sword towards where Rumple stood. “The Jolly Roger at noon, dearie. Where it all began.”copyright protection3PENANAsazOPl1TwM

            “How poetic. But we both know this weapon cannot kill you,” Rumple commented.copyright protection3PENANAdF7NUmr7TE

            “Ah, true. That sword can’t kill me.” He approached Rumple. He used magic to make the Excalibur appear in his hand. “This one can.”copyright protection3PENANA9KpvctugMR

            “The Excalibur,” Rumple stated.copyright protection3PENANAlf2V3Rg5LN

            “You have it,” Belle stated.copyright protection3PENANASYsZMnmeug

            “Aye. It can no longer control me, but it can kill me. All you have to do is take it from me. So, what say you, Crocodile? Shall we finish what we started?”copyright protection3PENANASE0i9cMEty

            “Indeed,” Rumple agreed.copyright protection3PENANAwOOzJRr0Xc

            After Hook left, Rumple and Belle met up with the others at Regina’s place and informed her.copyright protection3PENANANPbgOYDbc8

            “Once pirate, always a pirate,” Regina stated.copyright protection3PENANAr5MsoWEaB8

            “As a man, Hook spent centuries trying to kill me. It makes sense that revenge would be on his mind.”copyright protection3PENANAJ7XxGGp7Gm

            Emma stood by the table.copyright protection3PENANAkubwK0uobH

            “Why wipe my memory, when he was going to announce his plan anyway? There must be more to it.”copyright protection3PENANAwCMj4bfJlQ

            “Yeah, but even if there is, we only have until noon to stop him,” Belle informed her. Belle looked at Rumple with a hand on his. “And to save you.”copyright protection3PENANAS4YPCFw1Md

            “What about Merlin’s message?” Charming asked.copyright protection3PENANAn7HyDrz8QK

            “He said this Neume is the key to stopping the Dark One,” Snow said.copyright protection3PENANAPmnCGsNVc9

            “Neume was Merlin’s true love,” Emma told Snow.copyright protection3PENANAM4dLUPqqQd

            “And she was also the first Dark One,” Rumple added.copyright protection3PENANADekkNYMm6C

            “I know. How do we find out more about her?”  Emma asked him.copyright protection3PENANA7VZuyFXmB9

            “Start your search with the Dark One Chronicles. There are many texts that can help us.”copyright protection3PENANAvoeJ98zzyq

            “As much as I appreciate devotion to scholarship, there is an easier way. I am still the Dark One. I can protect you, Gold.” Emma saw their looks. “You don’t trust me.”copyright protection3PENANAMbE7wr5jOb

            “Well, if our positions were reversed, would you trust me?” Gold asked her.copyright protection3PENANAVV7VqGAn2c

            Henry entered.copyright protection3PENANAwxAKhJTQjr

            “So, it’s true. You’re here.”copyright protection3PENANAg6DUdamita

            “Henry,” she greeted him. She tried to get him to tell them that they could trust her, but he didn’t.copyright protection3PENANAup5CkviVTl

“No. You lied to us. About Hook; about everything. Why should we trust you now?”copyright protection3PENANA7pTIaas41L

            “Henry, I’m your mother.”copyright protection3PENANAvhR9c5jyoM

            “Are you?” he contradicted. “’cause the mom I know wouldn’t keep things from me.”copyright protection3PENANAITbOvvkOre

            “I thought you were the one person who would understand.”copyright protection3PENANAayD3hOeJSf

            “I thought you were the one person I could trust,” he replied.copyright protection3PENANAvownxItRhR

            “So, you can forgive Regina and Gold for everything they’ve done, but not me.”copyright protection3PENANAD0KPPgk94L

            “They’ve changed. They showed me they’ve changed.”copyright protection3PENANAnfk1iCQxmJ

            “So did I,” she replied.copyright protection3PENANANS8kfG2Jxk

            “When we first met, yeah. But the minute things got tough, you didn’t come to anybody. You decided that you would figure it out on your own. We were a team.”copyright protection3PENANAAaklZ9BkjG

            “Operation Cobra. I remember.”copyright protection3PENANA6HVrJe3zMq

            “But now, you want to use your Dark magic so you can do it alone. And I’ve seen what you do with Dark magic.”copyright protection3PENANAjzirTy7WhE

            She could only watch, as he left.copyright protection3PENANAgSPBdPKPa4

            “He needs time, Emma,” Regina told her.copyright protection3PENANAwgLsIuGL4t

            “We should really get to the library. We have a lot to do,” Belle, said, and everyone got up from the table.copyright protection3PENANAcn2uPW2XSj

            “I have stop to make first. I’ll meet you there,” Regina told them.copyright protection3PENANAC9crLphwfr

            “Let me guess. I’m not invited,” Emma stated.copyright protection3PENANAALImdqRUcV

            “Emma, we love you,” Snow White assured her.copyright protection3PENANAoojrT8nV6g

            “But you don’t trust me.”copyright protection3PENANAfIqrabRrH6

            “We don’t trust the Darkness,” Charming told her. “Stay here and let us save you. It’s for the best.”copyright protection3PENANATiSBE62v1f

            Everyone left the house.copyright protection3PENANArpEKQxTdsZ

            Rumple stopped on the front porch and Belle noticed.copyright protection3PENANAuHHU9R50jN

            She approached.copyright protection3PENANA6c5ZOJ5Rf6

            “Rumple, what’s wrong? Aren’t you coming?”copyright protection3PENANA6GvLrmikzL

            “I’m afraid my preparations for this battle can’t be found in a book.”copyright protection3PENANAk3s2YCU3Cd

            “But this was your idea,” she replied, standing in front of him.copyright protection3PENANARJqWIfGO6W

            “For you and the others, there might be a way to protect yourself,” Rumple assured her. “For me? I’ve spent an entire life running away from battles. Time to stop.”copyright protection3PENANAUdCqY3Mgom

            “Well, you don’t have anything to prove anymore,” Belle replied. “You saved me from Merida. You’re a hero now.”copyright protection3PENANA1IpuLo6FsJ

            “That doesn’t erase a lifetime of cowardice. Nothing can. If I survive this, I want to do better by you. I want to love you in a way I never could before. Honesty and courage.

            “I don’t know what to say,” she stated.copyright protection3PENANATUSwkRA78Y

            “Don’t say anything,” he replied. “If I win, I’ll go to the well where we were married. And if you meet me there, I’ll know how you feel.”copyright protection3PENANAtaHTFshL7J

            He walked away and she watched him go.copyright protection3PENANAv02Ykj9Tg8

            Zelena entered the hospital.copyright protection3PENANAy93rFnifur

            Zelena turned a corner and Regina was there.copyright protection3PENANAeYBVRgo82w

            “No so fast, sis,” Regina said.copyright protection3PENANARxwUvRdEKu

            “Sissy, dear. Thank you so much for looking after my bundle of joy while I was off being kidnapped, but I’ve come to take her back now. Bye.”copyright protection3PENANANiDRJje2zJ

            Regina watched her go.copyright protection3PENANAtOH4Kzl8Hn

            “Good luck with that.”copyright protection3PENANAEzVbuq2I5M

            Zelena went to the room, only to see through the window that she wasn’t there.copyright protection3PENANAcT5QKO9ZRJ

            Zelena turned around to face her sister.copyright protection3PENANAJkxrph0LqI

            “Where is my daughter?”copyright protection3PENANA84i3fMuiuz

            “Do you really think after everything that you’ve done that we wouldn’t protect that child from you?”copyright protection3PENANA5HtaxeYHeQ

            “She’s my child!”copyright protection3PENANAqXbYpBfqmF

            “She’s also Robin’s. And you will never take her away from him.”copyright protection3PENANA8uKqy0c3iH

            “You just can’t stand after a lifetime of getting everything, it’s finally my turn.”copyright protection3PENANADno6xVkwCz

            “The only reason you have that baby is because you killed Mirian. And you deceived Robin in the most vile way imaginable.”copyright protection3PENANAn3wy1W9hmw

            Zelena gave a smile.copyright protection3PENANAWu0HVzH8C0

            “Is that a compliment?”copyright protection3PENANAPfnemVaHsN

            “This insanity has to stop.”copyright protection3PENANAgPQNoSJx95

            “Agreed. But I don’t think it can.”copyright protection3PENANA36A4NvEvDh

            “Actually, I think maybe it can.”copyright protection3PENANAvtxTHTOSBh

            Emma was laying on the couch at Regina’s place, when Hook entered the living room.copyright protection3PENANAFR7wEvpo3y

            “A broken knee isn’t unlike a broken heart. Isn’t that right, Swan? What is this? I expected to find you in the hero’s home over a mountain of books, trying to figure out my terrible plan.”copyright protection3PENANAu7F4cszQXd

            “That’s not why you’re here,” Emma replied, getting up from the couch and approaching him. “You’re here because you still have feelings for me.”copyright protection3PENANA7tGFmoybh9

            “Of course, I still have feelings for you. Anger; hatred; disappointment.”copyright protection3PENANAsW1AtG5S48

            “You don’t mean that.”copyright protection3PENANAryg6Dszdix

            “When you tether me to the Excalibur, you opened my eyes, and I now see you for what you really are. An anchor. And I see clearly now that you are nothing more than a pretty, blond distraction, but guess what, Swan? I am a free man now. And you will never hold me back from getting what I want. Again.”copyright protection3PENANAqq075mwEyN

            “Hook; Killian, whatever deal you made to get your revenge on Gold, it’s not worth it. The Darkness is using you. It doesn’t care what you want. It only cares what it wants,” she tried to reason with him.copyright protection3PENANAO0KPAewG6B

            “Well, you’re only a pawn if you don’t know you’re being used. As long as I get what I want, I don’t give a crap about the rest. And you of all people should understand that.”copyright protection3PENANAPya5ENxe0Q

            “What I did, I did for you.”copyright protection3PENANALrhMzn951H

            “See, that’s your problem, Swan. You’re so afraid of losing the people you love, that you push the away. That’s why you’ll always be an orphan. You don’t need some villain to sweep in and destroy your happiness. You do that quite well on your own.”copyright protection3PENANASPHDFiRbZY

            “Why are you doing this?”copyright protection3PENANANPwXUbKspL

            “Because I want to hurt you, like you hurt me,” he informed her, before he left.copyright protection3PENANAjbcAXLX6RY

            She watched him go, hurt by his words, but trying not to show it.copyright protection3PENANAOKOvnuOfGO

            Katherine had overheard from another room. She hadn’t interfered, since she didn’t want a confrontation with Hook.copyright protection3PENANAdtDJqyVb0l

            Katherine entered the living room.copyright protection3PENANAWjw9UuVRBM

            “Give it time,” she suggested to her. “Once the Darkness is out of him, it’ll just take time. You just have to hope that your love is enough to save him.”copyright protection3PENANAQpxFVU9K9Q

            Emma sat on the couch and Katherine sat next to her.copyright protection3PENANAznkc6KK1WL

            “How did you do it?” Emma asked her. “You say you did terrible things, but you won after a while.”copyright protection3PENANAmS5T2ZoXR0

            “I changed when I was turned unwillingly back into a human and was reunited with my daughter I couldn’t find when I was a newly turned vampire. Elijah even gave up on my redemption and left me when I was still a vampire, after looking out for me for 500 years. When he left, I realized that no one could forgive me for what I’ve done. Besides, if an honorable guy like Elijah leaves without a look back, why would anyone else forgive me? Then I picked a fight with my doppelganger, blaming part of him leaving on her, and she shoved the cure for vampirism down my throat. I was alone after that, since pretty much everyone, apart from Elijah and a vampire named Caroline, despises me or hates me or wants me dead. I’m pretty sure if Regina, Rumple, and I compared notes, I was just as bad as them; probably worse. Everyone has dark parts, though. Darkness just brings the dark parts of ourselves out quicker than we like. Some of us are more dark than others. Now, though, ever since I was reunited with Nadia, even though she died of a werewolf bite, I still want to be a better person than I was. I’m choosing to be good for myself, Nadia, and everyone else. Maybe if I succeed, my happiness with Elijah will return to me. Even if it doesn’t, it doesn’t matter as long as I help you get your happy ending back.”copyright protection3PENANAKHpimlcw6m

            “You barely know any of us. Why do you want to help us, or even me, for that matter?” Emma questioned.copyright protection3PENANAnFJHRQsCSo

            “Because it’s what people that are good and people that want to be redeemed, do. Besides, I’ve been in Hook’s shoes as well as yours. I’ve had a broken heart more times than I can count, but I’ve also broken other people’s hearts. And apart from Hook, no one’s better at getting revenge than I am. I’ve gotten revenge so many times for things people have done to me or to someone I care about. Hook just can’t let go though, like I did. I never succeeded in having my revenge on Elijah’s brother for killing my parents and hunting me down for 500 years, because my love for Elijah stopped me every time. I knew that if I took my revenge on Klaus, I’d lose Elijah forever. If I lost him, I couldn’t live with myself. That’s why I let it go. Right now though, Hook doesn’t care like I cared. He cares about his revenge too deeply to let himself love you,” she explained to Emma.copyright protection3PENANAnfht9jsxhj

Meanwhile, Zelena got to see her daughter at Snow and Charming’s place with Regina and Robin’s supervision, and she got to hold her.copyright protection3PENANAx21XkoixVo

            While that was going on, Hook was on the Jolly Roger, waiting for noon and for the Crocodile.copyright protection3PENANAUi4D0Vusym

            Soon, Rumple boarded the ship and they began to sword fight, once Hook had magically made it so that Rumple wasn’t crippled no more, since he wanted a fair fight.copyright protection3PENANAQWC8pLrSiJ

            While they were sword fighting, Katherine and Emma had found where Hook had stashed the dreamcatchers. They found them hanging in the clock tower with a magical spell around them. So, Emma undid the spell and they were able to take the dreamcatchers.copyright protection3PENANAcPMdM6C5Ex

            Rumple soon won the sword fight, taking the Excalibur, and so Hook vanished and Rumple went to the well to wait for Belle.copyright protection3PENANAuyQybQuGj2

            Soon, Belle showed up, as Rumple was looking at the Excalibur he had laying on the outside of the well.copyright protection3PENANA29YEiopJgI

            Rumple turned around, when Belle said, “You did it. You won.”copyright protection3PENANAtsyfGlliqZ

            “And you came,” Rumple stated. “Oh, Belle. I’m so glad you’re here.” He put hands on her arms. “I’m ready to do this. Put the past behind us.”copyright protection3PENANAQVyGtJxYqQ

            She put a hand on his arm.copyright protection3PENANA0s0Z7inx1E

            “Rumple, this isn’t easy for me. I love you, and some part of me will always love you, but you’ve broken my heart too many times. There is just too much for me to trust.”copyright protection3PENANAgv6OKM965A

            “But I’ve changed,” he assured her. “My heart. It’s pure now.”copyright protection3PENANA6VvEBZo8YO

            “Yeah, you have. And it is. You’re the man I always hoped you would be.”copyright protection3PENANAYYhYYpgmXi

            “Then why are you doing this now? Now we have a chance to make this work.”copyright protection3PENANA0dN61yTbEY

            “I don’t know if I want to make it work. I do know if I want to try and figure that out, I need to do that on my own. I have spent too many years trying to mend your heart. Now, I need to protect mine.”copyright protection3PENANAMKUhpvhNEg

            She turned around and walked away.copyright protection3PENANABDeSCdiSzf

            “Belle, please,” he pleaded.copyright protection3PENANAbzsZGuxAFb

            Everyone met at the office, but Regina still had her doubts of whether to trust her or not.copyright protection3PENANAzrWtJlZ18E

            “You can trust her,” Katherine assured those that had their doubts.copyright protection3PENANAhKhwDTKVMj

            “Can we?” Regina contradicted.copyright protection3PENANAaYTDXz7uaN

            “Yes,” Emma assured her.copyright protection3PENANAGJfDcYYc07

            “Okay,” Regina said.copyright protection3PENANAQiS7Ov1yrO

            Emma and Henry held up their dreamcatchers as well did the others in the room, and Emma gave back their memories.copyright protection3PENANASCMLfJlmev

            Katherine stood on the sidelines and watched.copyright protection3PENANA9UfoxsnwEo

            Soon, all of their memories were back.copyright protection3PENANADvGwCv2E4t

            Snow saw Emma’s look.copyright protection3PENANAsW5eIkY4Hc

            “Emma? What’s wrong?”copyright protection3PENANAAR6PfEhDaW

            “I remember. I know what they’re planning,” she replied, referring to both Hook and the Darkness.copyright protection3PENANA1OrIk4dmIh

            Meanwhile, Hook was standing at the place where the Fury had tried to take Robin to the underworld. He’d just opened up the portal to the underworld and was letting the Dark Ones come out of the underworld.copyright protection3PENANAQbeWpXhn1Y

            He helped Neume up onto the bank and she took her mask off.copyright protection3PENANAABPGq5kIJv

            “We’re here. All of us. As promised. Now it’s time to get to work. Do what Dark Ones do best. Snuff out the light.”copyright protection3PENANAELj5tE9G1S

            Hook gave a smile.copyright protection3PENANAYS3dOta5Rb

            “Welcome to Storybrooke, luv.”copyright protection3PENANA4rMU8d0tWJ

            As the Darkness evaded Storybrooke, Emma and Katherine went to go find Hook, Elijah tagging along. If anything bad was going to happen, he’d be there to help. Besides, he may have left, but he still loved Katerina. He’d be there if anyone tried to harm her. copyright protection3PENANAYAuiFYWPFY

            They arrived there, Elijah standing a little ways away, letting Emma and Katerina try first, before Elijah did anything.copyright protection3PENANAHDQKRFe1K5

            Emma and Katherine stood in front of Hook, trying to reason with him to stop him, hoping it would work, but the first Dark One, began to magically choke them.copyright protection3PENANAcPwZJEdJ79

            Hook silently watched.copyright protection3PENANAt6JYopWlfB

            Elijah was instantly at Katerina’s side and looked at the first Dark One.copyright protection3PENANAjWfaH6PV8A

            “Let them go,” he demanded.copyright protection3PENANA1kpxk9cyTk

            Emma had trouble staying on her feet, as she looked at Hook.copyright protection3PENANAHmqrkORh96

            Something snapped inside Hook. He didn’t want Emma to die, even though he hated her for what she did to him.copyright protection3PENANATt39DLgtHo

            “Enough!” Hook ordered her.copyright protection3PENANA4IJug3DtCw

            She immediately stopped choking them magically.copyright protection3PENANANkTdLe2Dvc

            Emma seemed to be fine now.copyright protection3PENANAKoFOxjzONh

            Katherine felt a little weak after being magically attacked, but brushed it off the best of her ability.copyright protection3PENANAcR0VlgZZKB

            Elijah was in front of her, a hand on the side of her face.copyright protection3PENANAvxVpLHDNl8

            “Katerina.”copyright protection3PENANAZ5xET5YtTL

            She looked at him.copyright protection3PENANAL5CL1Y20XM

            “I’m fine,” she assured him, knowing that he was making sure she was okay.copyright protection3PENANACtjyS5fvSB

            Hook used the Excalibur to put the Darkness inside the Excalibur sword, but knew he couldn’t hold them all inside it for very long.copyright protection3PENANAESGcxAiv4c

            Hook informed Emma what she had to do.copyright protection3PENANAgPhTBjRDkP

            “No. I can’t,” she told him.copyright protection3PENANApWiJuaOKGH

            “Please. I can’t hold it for long. Let me be the man I want you to remember.”copyright protection3PENANAlkz2x6CPBH

            Katherine left Elijah and approached.copyright protection3PENANA1SxjM8CELW

            “There could be another way. There has to be another way. I didn’t go through all this trouble for you to lose each other. I should be able to trap the darkness within the Excalibur for good. I’m descended from Travelers. They’re gypsies but adapted with the times. Now they’re a lot more like witches. I’ve known witches my entire vampire life. I know spells. I can trap them inside there, or they can go back where they came from,” Katherine suggested.copyright protection3PENANAtbTLUoVJ8B

            “Do it,” Hook agreed.copyright protection3PENANAquW0wt69jI

            Katherine used her Traveler magic to trap the darkness inside the Excalibur forever. She wasn’t going to let them lose their happy ending. They deserved to be happy.copyright protection3PENANAQkBoEnwh1h

            Once they all headed back, Katherine gave Rumple the Excalibur for safe keeping. Then Emma and Hook went to the diner together so they could have some dinner and talk.copyright protection3PENANAevt7gnvc7E

            After the events that had occurred, Hook and Emma were okay again and Elijah and Katherine were together, once again. And so, everyone had their happy endings.copyright protection3PENANAOy8KyFeEOy
