Who knew an evil queen had a soft spot for children?
#it was probably her dream to have like a barn full of kids with her stable boy, Daniel, and they’d be happy, and she would raise them and let them love whoever they pleased. She’d be so happy, just Daniel and her pride and joy children. #But no that didn’t happen did it? #NO #instead Daniel died in her arms and she became a pawn to do the Dark One’s dirty work #and she never thought anyone would ever love her again #so there went her dream of love #there went her dream for children #for a quiet life away from Cora, away from magic #but here she is, being reminded of what truly matters to her #past the need to avenge her true love #her dream of love #love children offer without even trying #the evil queen doesn’t exist around children #nope #just the trapped stable girl who dreamed of love, trying to figure everything out and do it right #unlike her mother
