Ch.6: OUAT/VD/Originals: Radiant Endingcopyright protection18PENANAaCQ7yAGMO2

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 protection18PENANA50ZN4O2aa1

  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 protection18PENANA7FsWoteBvK

            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 protection18PENANAEGnuOW5uIT

            “Katerina.”copyright protection18PENANAxOUxCZlE9w

            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 protection18PENANAGhc8eACsb7

            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 protection18PENANAdPOAkCwp6f

            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 protection18PENANAjE4dbGcxlm

            “Come back to me, Katerina.”copyright protection18PENANA31EgaSQMl1

            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 protection18PENANAUyRI9bkGBr

            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 protection18PENANAVU5Z8gGkN1

            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 protection18PENANAHR3l7ddY0y

            He rested a hand on hers and another on the side of her face.copyright protection18PENANAZU7QCg2WWE

            “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 protection18PENANAoSytSHKy2y

            As Elijah waited for his Katerina to awaken, someone walked in.copyright protection18PENANAAJqE4yRiwR

            “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 protection18PENANARvMYmofplc

            “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 protection18PENANA3J4CdWjXvl

            “My name’s Regina Mills,” she introduced herself. “I’m the mayor of Storybrooke.”copyright protection18PENANAw64WK9uCr0

            “Storybrooke?” he quizzed.copyright protection18PENANAujwgiSFxh0

            “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 protection18PENANAJkKOXXKgVg

            “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 protection18PENANABrnGn7PSKg

            “Well, welcome to Storybrooke, then,” she replied.copyright protection18PENANASfApvShbpz

            “You say this town is full of fairytales, so who may you be, Miss Mills?”copyright protection18PENANAb9UVXRSI7N

            “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 protection18PENANAYJflpCteue

            “Thanks for the advice, Regina,” he replied.copyright protection18PENANAvnt5MZX4an

            She turned around to leave.copyright protection18PENANADmwyhtpabx

            He watched her go, and then looked down at Katerina, once again.copyright protection18PENANAYagdwGQZUl

            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 protection18PENANAeqIIvvItzS

            She smiled and he smiled back.copyright protection18PENANAQdfnLwQbH2

            “You’re awake,” he greeted.copyright protection18PENANAJFc0TIGKIB

            “And you’re here,” she greeted back. “You saved my life. Thanks.”copyright protection18PENANA5X1OFxjn0T

            “I’ll always save you no matter what, Katerina. You know that,” he responded.copyright protection18PENANAgR6vfS254J

            He took his hands away from her.copyright protection18PENANA8NplOj3u3M

            She sat up in bed.copyright protection18PENANA58K6WpEgNE

            “And yet you didn’t bother to call to make sure I was okay or not,” she retorted.copyright protection18PENANA94wgzL9CRd

            He rested a hand on hers.copyright protection18PENANAmZ1MlP5pk8

            “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 protection18PENANAbphVwelav9

            “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 protection18PENANAPEdmVN74pZ

            “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 protection18PENANAiLZjxk9DJt

            “Maybe someday, but not anytime soon,” she replied to him. “Now when do I get out of here, and where are we exactly?”copyright protection18PENANAMVT3RqidBN

            “We’re in a town called Storybrooke,” he answered her. “You can go when you’re ready.”copyright protection18PENANAmrszNomVtM

            “Well, I’m ready now,” she replied.copyright protection18PENANAVLxU55ffIY

            A few minutes later, she was out of the hospital and they were at the bar in Granny’s Diner.copyright protection18PENANAIvTCyL3RYE

            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 protection18PENANAFk67TTwgPZ

            “Hi, I’m Henry. Who are you?” he asked them.copyright protection18PENANA2KKAFQGU5o

            They looked at him.copyright protection18PENANASOTMqsyukw

            She was the one whom introduced them to him.copyright protection18PENANA8ZQf7K8D1Y

            “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 protection18PENANAC3JmEockji

            “It’s magical. When someone new comes to town, a new story appears.”copyright protection18PENANAJc6DYx6w1q

            He looked through the book.copyright protection18PENANA3apTpwEy9F

            She watched him.copyright protection18PENANAwMJf9nEmHX

            He stopped at a page.copyright protection18PENANAEq9K38h9Fi

            “Your story is in the book now.”copyright protection18PENANAzItZCSwgqG

            She looked at the story. That’s when she believed. She also realized why this town was called Storybrooke.copyright protection18PENANAVWsEcB2RXJ

            After she realized all of this, Henry spoke again.copyright protection18PENANAPBaYmd7EnM

            “Are you going to be together?”copyright protection18PENANAXXvqX7itoI

            She knew he was referring to her and Elijah.copyright protection18PENANA9kFBZRd1Ja

            “I don’t know. I’m not good at forgiveness and Elijah did leave.”copyright protection18PENANAKyMUx98ENw

            “Do you still love each other?”copyright protection18PENANArKtWaq4sTs

            “Of course. We always will,” she allegated.copyright protection18PENANAb3MQELISMr

            “Then you should be together. He’s your true love. You’re meant to be together,” he replied.copyright protection18PENANA2xZPrxYAbL

            “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 protection18PENANA6DwzzG0E9U

            “I should get going, but I’ll see you later,” Henry told her.copyright protection18PENANA6kYTaDESvr

            She watched him go.copyright protection18PENANAkxYknqRm03

            They finished their shot glass of bourbon each.copyright protection18PENANA87GEHgkHUu

            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 protection18PENANAC0OAUYdyRI

            They stopped, seeing Hook on a roof, trying to summon Emma. His look was what gave away who he was.copyright protection18PENANA0cgZwEpo0q

            A moment later, they saw a girl they assumed was Emma, appear, and Hook suddenly appeared on the ground, in front of Emma.copyright protection18PENANAr8x7Mfo7Xi

            They watched silently, as Emma and Hook spoke.copyright protection18PENANABzjpadooMg

            After they saw Emma disappear, Katherine asked Elijah to go and he decided to go to their room.copyright protection18PENANA6MsnLZ1bn2

            Katherine approached Hook.copyright protection18PENANABOa9WXok4l

            “I can help you save her if you want.”copyright protection18PENANACFVW559utV

            He looked at her.copyright protection18PENANAKAIdYuc0Fz

            “Who are you?”copyright protection18PENANA2hodqkaPFe

            “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 protection18PENANAbhU6d0cnuF

            “How do you suggest that you help me save Emma from herself?” he catechized.copyright protection18PENANAjfg1sfvEfb

            “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 protection18PENANAdisBvTWFIB

            “Shall we discuss this tomorrow, luv?”copyright protection18PENANAUTTO07Ocuj

            “We shall.”copyright protection18PENANASNy8P0olED

            They smiled at each other.copyright protection18PENANAwSWYurRq7A

            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 protection18PENANA11uUQu1FGw

            “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 protection18PENANAYykwH9w5ub

            “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 protection18PENANAJ03FZx7RYf

            Katherine looked at him.copyright protection18PENANArZgVU7qWM6

            “We’re going to get the old Emma back one way or another.”copyright protection18PENANAtKFNhmWNrr

            She finished her shot glass of Bourbon.copyright protection18PENANAZbs2RrAYjz

            “Then let’s go, luv,” Hook said, and got to his feet, as she got to hers.copyright protection18PENANAdKyuGtC7qo

            They headed out the door.copyright protection18PENANAdT9SHqfEdH

            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 protection18PENANA5dSxfJZQIi

            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 protection18PENANApW3YrKs3RS

            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 protection18PENANAs4MBXt1c7f

            “The Excalibur sword,” Hook commented, when he saw it.copyright protection18PENANAUdsMLIwKye

            “Indeed,” Katherine agreed. copyright protection18PENANA3Yb6XCRpGI

            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 protection18PENANAi8N5JKyKXG

            Hook looking in the direction that Katherine did to see what Katherine had sensed, and saw Emma there.copyright protection18PENANAZRTsEEabpJ

            “You shouldn’t be down here,” Emma warned Hook. Then she looked at Katherine. “Who the hell are you?”copyright protection18PENANAqsIBzFeq5U

            “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 protection18PENANA8o3VtMG2xE

            Emma wasn’t sure what to say to that, for once.copyright protection18PENANAIxwCZag9mF

            Katherine headed for the stairs.copyright protection18PENANASM8AoHgC8l

            “Let’s go,” she told Hook.copyright protection18PENANAxgKAcdnSgU

            Hook followed her out.copyright protection18PENANAwZr3BqdSAA

            Half an hour later, they were back in town.copyright protection18PENANAysmG3Kojnw

            Hook parted from Katherine to go to his ship, while she went back to the diner.copyright protection18PENANAFUNpvZDSSU

            Katherine sat at the bar and ordered a shot glass of Bourbon. As usual.copyright protection18PENANAMoTdrvEFne

            Ruby poured her her drink.copyright protection18PENANAfWHCDKm14K

            “Rough day?”copyright protection18PENANAyKEla9lN1d

            “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 protection18PENANAHOBB236HJu

            “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 protection18PENANAVZqDB3oY5s

            “Thanks. Where would I find them?” she questioned her.copyright protection18PENANAIDdnZnxkaz

            “Gold’s pawn shop,” she answered her.copyright protection18PENANAxSn9uqcA7W

            “I’ll talk to them then. Thanks for your help.”copyright protection18PENANA53VvGxy4wD

            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 protection18PENANAxfhKDg7aAi

            Fifteen minutes later, she entered the pawn shop and approached the glass counter, as a guy with a cane came from the back.copyright protection18PENANAK7b8gFytgF

            “How can I help you, dearie?” he inquired.copyright protection18PENANApmJlRpTqup

            “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 protection18PENANA42ElNiCVsc

            “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 protection18PENANAdckpkA5T4m

            “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 protection18PENANAzuIiPAIJ0c

            He watched, as she left his shop.copyright protection18PENANA85fNr253Xy

            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 protection18PENANAgbKAB5bHYf

            He took a moment and then, hating saying this, said, “I loved you.”copyright protection18PENANA3xKMPAmyjn

            After he told her that, she disappeared.copyright protection18PENANALrs0fU3lX1

            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 protection18PENANATdcENOJZvI

            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 protection18PENANAfyfZl5zHDS

            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 protection18PENANA5pkypzstUq

            She entered with the sword and put it on Regina’s desk.copyright protection18PENANAuODHsrvbr0

            “We don’t need to worry about her using the Excalibur anymore. Now we have it.”copyright protection18PENANAUGzaFVfeCT

            After they left Regina’s office, Snow, Regina, Charming, Elijah, and Katherine went to the house to go find Emma.copyright protection18PENANA7IjrgI1JbW

            “I’ll take the basement,” Charming said.copyright protection18PENANA9FKNnceSoF

            “I’ll check the upstairs,” Regina said.copyright protection18PENANATimts1oIg0

            Snow opened the door and they all walked in and began looking around for her.copyright protection18PENANACnJVOZEPJP

            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 protection18PENANALSvwFSIUL6

            Snow knelt in front of her.copyright protection18PENANAAEoW7RYwze

            “Hey. What happened?”copyright protection18PENANAwbBg7qgLfZ

            Katherine approached and Elijah followed.copyright protection18PENANAA1R6xxZgsK

            After Charming and Regina were downstairs and the black thing was off Emma’s wrist, Emma informed them.copyright protection18PENANAm2pLZxCX3c

            Afterward, Regina whom was seated on the opposite end of the couch, said, “You turned Hook into The Dark One?”copyright protection18PENANAbAoNQvd6gt

            “Yeah. In order to save him,” she told her.copyright protection18PENANA5RvXY3uXjX

            Snow handed her a drink.copyright protection18PENANAIGZ8rZF4WJ

            “And you didn’t think of the consequences to everyone else?” Regina asked.copyright protection18PENANAh8jFVaa9gr

            “I couldn’t just let him die. You could understand that.”copyright protection18PENANACmj7khaPfu

            “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 protection18PENANAMYaM6BLLGI

            “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 protection18PENANAvXQOCMYNWf

            Snow sat in a wooden chair.copyright protection18PENANAfyCyGWQRL5

            “Come on. It’s premeditated murder, Emma. There had to be another way. You should have come to us.”copyright protection18PENANAly3vk976VN

            “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 protection18PENANAOqLFfosebo

            “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 protection18PENANAtrX5ZD2QuO

            “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 protection18PENANAVQmZmH9tN5

            “I’m afraid not,” Charming interjected, as he walked in. “The dreamcatchers. You said they were in the shed? They’re gone.”copyright protection18PENANAhBv3gLrIZD

            “Emma turned you into the Dark One?” Belle questioned.copyright protection18PENANAP3vGDJOXoE

            “And now you’ve come for your revenge,” Rumple stated.copyright protection18PENANAiHC54Erwoo

            “So, what are you waiting for?” Rumple questioned him. “Get on with it.”copyright protection18PENANA6haBXNkLLJ

            “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 protection18PENANAq3r39vHB26

            “How poetic. But we both know this weapon cannot kill you,” Rumple commented.copyright protection18PENANAZVsJ0PB7B3

            “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 protection18PENANAeIkojhcE3X

            “The Excalibur,” Rumple stated.copyright protection18PENANAou1PxblfMn

            “You have it,” Belle stated.copyright protection18PENANAmLiPvjE7qg

            “Indeed,” Rumple agreed.copyright protection18PENANAdlkfaSqv7d

            After Hook left, Rumple and Belle met up with the others at Regina’s place and informed her.copyright protection18PENANATtYciuvXCW

            “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 protection18PENANAmeKsjE2AL5

            “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 protection18PENANAB3bBTDdXAb

            “You don’t mean that.”copyright protection18PENANAfvr0YLF1lq

            “When you tether me to the Excalibur, you opened my eyes, and I now see you for what you really are. An anchor.

Again.”copyright protection18PENANA6XuiynVMlw

            “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 protection18PENANAXPFevzMVFV

            “What I did, I did for you.”copyright protection18PENANA1yFvQeTM0f

            “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 protection18PENANAiX4YcAxYvd

            “Why are you doing this?”copyright protection18PENANAUF8mg3MDEe

            “Because I want to hurt you, like you hurt me,” he informed her, before he left.copyright protection18PENANAlFM0bDe5qe

            She watched him go, hurt by his words, but trying not to show it.copyright protection18PENANAkIcpHoZenv

            Katherine had overheard from another room. She hadn’t interfered, since she didn’t want a confrontation with Hook.copyright protection18PENANAribzErDq4h

            Katherine entered the living room.copyright protection18PENANAFpXsq96Eew

            “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 protection18PENANATze5YWuYaS

            Emma sat on the couch and Katherine sat next to her.copyright protection18PENANAuCaFcO6Qfb

            “How did you do it?” Emma asked her. “You say you did terrible things, but you won after a while.”copyright protection18PENANA8VB5n1etFt

            “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 protection18PENANAZy2eE0a9Zl

            “You barely know any of us. Why do you want to help us, or even me, for that matter?” Emma questioned.copyright protection18PENANA1tYb8b0f1g

            “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 protection18PENANAq9b1fz3t2I

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 protection18PENANAW2hZhWZs5Z

            While that was going on, Hook was on the Jolly Roger, waiting for noon and for the Crocodile.copyright protection18PENANAN6sMiAXjQY

            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 protection18PENANAAg7MimllQo

            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 protection18PENANA4NqlMIiMan

            Rumple soon won the sword fight, taking the Excalibur, and so Hook vanished and Rumple went to the well to wait for Belle.copyright protection18PENANAMYueKNPH7F

            She put a hand on his arm.copyright protection18PENANAVCLRqe5C3F

            “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 protection18PENANAEfjtTj6eBv

            She turned around and walked away.copyright protection18PENANAKFiLSrekGj

            “I remember. I know what they’re planning,” she replied, referring to both Hook and the Darkness.copyright protection18PENANAABIHRBPCCd

            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 protection18PENANAEAO2daSOGx

            He helped Neume up onto the bank and she took her mask off.copyright protection18PENANAW7YnKrDM7X

            “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 protection18PENANAaIySqquf37

            Hook gave a smile.copyright protection18PENANAsIHgKUrCI8

            “Welcome to Storybrooke, luv.”copyright protection18PENANAaFf820zGMH

            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.

            They arrived there, Elijah standing a little ways away, letting Emma and Katerina try first, before Elijah did anything.copyright protection18PENANAszo9Q84hLM

            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 protection18PENANAqVrF4uGEbs

            She looked at him.copyright protection18PENANAuPayyoLre8

            “I’m fine,” she assured him, knowing that he was making sure she was okay.copyright protection18PENANAIZQ3jWzDsE

            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 protection18PENANA29fl6sHawq

            Hook informed Emma what she had to do.copyright protection18PENANA51fgAOFlgU

            Katherine left Elijah and approached.copyright protection18PENANAnfvCw5rbrH

            “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 protection18PENANA5VGZgJcxl4

            “Do it,” Hook agreed.copyright protection18PENANAgCY98d86ah

            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 protection18PENANABxx7a3dBeE

            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 protection18PENANAjkAZjQIwo4
