Once Upon a Time (Belle): Silent Strength
OH MY GOLD!!!!!!! RUMBELLE FEELS
Look at how gently he is holding her. I don’t remember him doing that … EVER. My babies will reunite next week!
He never did. Normally Gold’s hands are on the small of her back……and he holds the cane with one hand.
Here, he must be like ***** the cane; I want, I need, to hold my Belle - and I’m going to touch her and feel her all over the place. You just know his hands are going to wander…
So beautiful, so hot, so sensual
Yes. All of what you said. That gentle cradling (whatever is the word) conveys so MUCH. It is amazing how in those few seconds one can feel their tender love … from a beelding GIF set! Kudos to Bobby and Emilie.
Last word’s from the Queen. Perhaps a deaths bed confession from the one who has the most to regret of all.

Note: A Knight’s Tale AU. It took me pleasantly by surprise.
Life’s been a lot harder since he found Hordor dead.
Gold had told his young son that the knight had passed easily, rather than in the terrible circumstance by the river that actually claimed his life, and when Bae had asked what they would do, it had given Gold pause.
Hordor hadn’t been the most pleasant man, but he’d won enough jousts to put food in his servants’ mouths. Without him, they were left with nothing, and work has never been plentiful for a man with a family history like Gold’s.
His father had sent him away at a young age to learn a trade, and when he had returned from France, coming back to England as a man, he’d found his father in the same sorry state he’d always lived in. Gold had realised that day that to change his family would be as difficult as changing the stars, but he could try.
A Knight’s Tale and Rumbelle? WTF? WHY? WHY? WHY DO YOU LIKE TO TORTURE US SO? I need more and I just …. ASDFGHJKL!!!
The month of November is almost over now and I’m still nowhere near finished with this story, even though I’ve got 80 000 words down on paper right now. While I work on chapter 34, I give you all chapter 14, and hope you enjoy it!! Feel free to like/comment/whatever! I’m always happy to see other Rumbelle fans from all over the world read it. (I swear that I stalk my readers more than that they stalk me. :-P)
Chapter Fourteen: Skeletons and Other Monsters
That night, the ship chased a bright light again. This time it wasn’t a purple one, but a yellow one, and as Belle stood behind the wheel, with Rumpelstiltskin in his scaly appearance right behind her, she felt more excited than ever. He let her steer the ship, and this time the waves did not frighten her, but instead, they caused her to laugh in amusement. The wilder the waves got, the more they made her stomach turn, but she kept on laughing because of it and she was glad that she could share that laughter with Rumpelstiltskin.
It was a good thing they were having fun, because the yellow light wasn’t willing to let them cross over so easily. Rumpelstiltskin had spent many nights chasing lights like this – and usually he would have grown irritated by now. But with Belle by his side, he felt surprisingly calm and confident – and he was enjoying himself more and more with every minute, standing close behind her, making sure she didn’t fall, helping her to steer the ship whenever the wheel became too heavy for her, secretly inhaling her sent whenever she brushed against him…
I like that the acronym is H.O.T.S., because that’s what this is: HOTsssss. You have kept me gnawing on my nails on why he needs to sleep next to her … WHY?? I like the pacing and YES they are finally falling for one another. The different worlds that you painted so far really, really, really SUCKED ME IN.
I love it when I get such vivid view of the worlds and cultures the author is trying to convey. It keeps me alive and active and immersed in the story. Kudos on that!
Maybe I’ve been watching too much Treasure Planet, because I am getting TP vibes from this. Not a bad thing, in fact, I LOVE it. Your Rumpelstiltskin is very gentle with Belle and I don’t think I’ll ever get enough of him.
