I think someone needs to write a semi crack fic in which Robin buys lunch for a date with Regina, and when he sees the coke bottles that say “soulmate” he can’t resist buying one for each of them as well, and then Regina opens the bag he brought and glares at him but secretly finds it kind of funny.

Summary: There is a black secret hidden between the words “happily ever after”: when True Love sparks to life, if affection will not keep the fated together, compulsion surely will. (Angsty Outlaw Queen)

A/N: After the finale, I was full of hurt and angst on Regina’s behalf. Sadly, when I need to get those feelings out, usually a darker story emerges. So, I apologize. For everything. (And promise that the majority of the fic I write for these two will have a happy ending.)

I’m going with the idea that Robin doesn’t chase after Regina when she leaves Granny’s in the finale. (So, according to recent spoilers, this is already a canon divergence.)

WARNING: One bout of infidelity (non-explicit, but adult enough to get the M-rating)
