——————————————————————-

"You would think I would be the acerbic one," Belle comments over the top of her book on roses and their genus.

Gold is trying to tidy the stacks of tomes sat about her wood-panelled sitting room as best he can, his shirtsleeves rolled up to his elbows, but he isn’t putting the books in their proper order and Belle will simply have to do it again later.

She enjoys giving the man one task, however.

She would never ordinarily leave her precious volumes lying about so carelessly, but since her father will not terminate Gold’s contract and the man will not leave of his own volition, she has had to give him some reason to live here besides watching her.

His only reply to her comment, as she lies on the threadbare couch with her heels dangling over the arm, is to exhale gruffly in her general direction.

No Two Hearts

thatravenclawbitch:

My first stab at a real AU! In which Belle’s an attorney and Gold is her ex with some pretty deadly secrets. Currently rated T, but expected to increase to E at some point, cause it’s me and I like smut. 

Summary: Belle French’s life as an attorney and single mother has never lent itself to romance. But when a blast from her past shows up unexpectedly, it puts her whole world in a tailspin.

Read it on AO3

Belle French had faced her share of shock and trauma in her relatively short life, but nothing had prepared her for the sight of the little blue box clutched tightly in Gary Stone’s large hand.

She should want this. Any woman would want this. Gary was fantastic. He was smart, driven, successful. He was good looking in a conventional, if slightly boring way. He was exactly the type of guy you would want to bring home to your parents. The kind of guy you want to love, honor and protect you. But Belle didn’t want any of that, and she especially didn’t want Gary.

I love your starting point, your cliffhanger, your pacing—lovely, lovely, lovely! I love the romance of lawyer!Belle carrying the torch for her dead(ish) lover for nearly a decade. Everything about this first chapter is pitch-perfect. *joyfully pops over to Ao3 to follow*

Shall Not Covet, Chapter Three

dreams-love-magic:

Shall Not Covet: Something Sweeter

Rating: E (rating is for future chapters)

Pairing: Barnelle [The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson]

Summary: Barney Thomson has spent most of his life being mocked and ridiculed. No one enjoys this past time more than his own brother, Allan, but Allan’s wife Belle has had enough. When she finally takes a stand in Barney’s defense, a new world is introduced to the both of them that neither were at all prepared for. (AU of the books, spoiler free!)

Word count: 1,774

A/n: Co-written with the absolutely fantastic trashandscraps. Literally none of this would have been possible without her.

The room was filled with a silence so thick it could practically be cut with a knife, so Belle did not disturb anyone with her sudden yawn. With little else to do except read and reread her library’s collections, Belle could admit to herself that she was getting paid to do a whole lot of nothing. She would never complain, of course, but she often found herself wishing that she could have settled in a town where people actually read. The only business she got was the occasional local book order through the phone, but that hadn’t happened in days. Almost as soon as she had the thought, right on perfect cue, the phone let out a shrill tone that made Belle wince.

“McIver Public Library, this is Belle speaking! How many I help you?”

“Be—” Her name trailed off into a dull thud, and Belle raised an eyebrow in amusement as she listened to her caller fumble with their receiver. A muttered curse brought a small smile to her face, but it quickly faded when the voice returned. “B-Belle? It’s me, Barney. Thomson,” he added as if she could possibly confuse him with anyone else. Her heart was suddenly racing as if she had run a mile. He had never called before, and she especially would not have expected to hear from him after what she considered The Fiasco of a few days prior.

“Is everything okay?” she asked hesitantly, almost afraid to hear the answer. Barney coughed, rushing to reassure her.

“Aye, yeah, of course. Sorry. I’m just callin’…to…erm…” He trailed off and Belle found herself balancing on one foot, the other having somehow drifted up in a coy pose that annoyed her. She wasn’t some teenage girl talking to her first crush. “How are things? You know, with the library. And stuff.”

Belle blinked in surprise. “Just fine! I’ve been trying to hold a fundraiser, but I can’t seem to get enough interest.” Any interest, she amended silently, glancing around the empty room.

Guess what? I’ve got a fever. And the only prescription is MORE BARNELLE.

I’m enjoying Barney’s awkwardness so much. I love the bit about him smelling of mousse and cologne. You nailed it, like always.

Siblings: Lonely only

Dream job: Librarian

Fears: Swimming in deep sea water (I watched Jaws when I was teeny tiny, followed by Open Water, followed by every shark movie ever filmed)

Religion: Unitarian Universalist

Tattoos: I’m more of a cheek-painting kind of girl, but I enjoy a full sleeve on a certain wiry body type

Piercings: Just my earlobes. I should probably add ‘needles’ to my list of fears.

Why I joined this cult Tumblr: I may have been slightly obsessed with the Willana ship during the first season of Hannibal. And then I saw a Rumbelle gif. And it was curtains for me.

Handwriting Tag Game: I was tagged by ripperblackstaff.
May I elaborate on the “Crush” portion?
There is a very slight chance I may also have a crush on Robert Carlyle. But, you know, it hasn’t gotten out of hand or anything like that.
Also, by the transitive property, if your icon is a wee Bobby, there’s a very good chance I have a subliminal crush on *you* as well. Ripper.

I see you tagged me for the handwriting thingy, thestraggletag. I did the handwriting thingy awhile back, so I’m just going to tag you back and reblog with the observation that our handwriting is slightly similar. >.>
