My name is Rumplestiltskin. Otherwise known as the Dark One. Or perhaps you know me as Mr. Gold.

Would you like to make a deal?

Just remember: All magic comes with a price.

And I owe a starter to a-flicker-of-light

If I’m missing anyone, even if it’s been months since I replied, please let me know.  I’ve been a really slow rp partner lately, but I won’t intentionally drop a thread without talking to you about it.  And I’m going to do my best to keep up with replies between college and work.  So if you ever think I’ve missed your reply, just send me a message.  I don’t mind nice reminders.

Surprise Visitor || Rumple and Belle

belletheoutsider:

"But when he sees you have changed, he will want to forgive you. It just might take some time."

"Perhaps."  There were times when that was hard to believe, even though it was what Rumple wanted.  "I will do my best to be worthy of his forgiveness."

A Surprising Reunion || Rumple and Lelouch

a-new-code:

Lelouch sighed and ran a hand through his hair, “Nor do I for that matter so it is a fruitless to even try it out before hand. To be frank though my father does have a true love or did, she was my mother whom I destroyed at the same time and I doubt she could come back.”

"There are many unlikely possibilities in our current situation.  Your father should not be alive either.  So we cannot rule out the survival of your mother completely," Rumple said.  "However, I will prepare the sleeping curse."

W e l l  I wasn’t looking for fluff I am

definitley not used to that.”

"Then don’t complain."

"What is it that you do want?"

mayorbelle:

I assumed you would want to be on your way as early as possible. 
Oh, yes — she couldn’t tell if his answer was a simple reply or a … validation — but his assumption was right nonetheless, she inwardly mused. She did want to be on her way soon in the high hopes of finding something useful, and she was certain that he had presumed as much himself. But she could hardly pretend to be anything other than pleased whenever he extended the offer of breakfast, even if in … well, she could only name them his diplomatic articulations. Oh, even after what they had shared the day prior, he was still keeping her at a careful arm’s length, voicing everything in terms of the needs of the day’s journey. 
——————————————— He still didn’t know what to do with her, did he?
“I planned on packing a few things before heading off,” Belle however answered, smile curling pleasantly at the corners of her mouth. “And breakfast sounds lovely — I hope you’ll join me.” 

"Certainly."  Yes, he was eager for her to go, to have the chance to work on the curse, but there was no denying that he enjoyed her company as well.  It was a mix of conflicting thoughts inside of her.  In order to prevent her from discovering the truth, he couldn’t let her in completely.  Secrets were necessary, or else she would only end up seeing what a monster he truly was.  Yet, he also wanted her close.  For the moment, she loved him.  And it was true love or it would not have broken his curse.  He wanted to be able to spend time with her, to love her.  But would it be possible for him to have both?  Today though, he would join her for breakfast and they would eat together before she was on her way and he got on with his day and the curse.

"But it was worth risking Belle? Her loyalty to you; her love?”

"Of course not.  However, Belle currently knows nothing about it.  And I intend for it to stay that way."

"Well that is no way to say hello."

"If you want warm, friendly greetings, go find someone else to talk to."

I put Rumple and Lelouch next to each other on my dorm room wall.  And I just was thinking about how that might not have been the best idea based on their recent thread interactions.  Fireballs in the middle of the night from Rumple maybe?  XD

A Surprising Reunion || Rumple and Lelouch

a-new-code:

"That is exactly why I opted to let you test on me instead of simply theorizing. Now lets continue without any further distractions or needless displays, while we still have time to plan before they act." His voice and stature haughty, he was in the right in this situation.

Rumple was silent for a moment as he considered the options that they had not yet tried.  ”Testing a sleeping curse on you would be risky, but there is a possibility that it may work.  Anyone under the curse can only be woken from one with true love’s kiss, something I doubt either of our fathers have.”

A Surprising Reunion || Rumple and Lelouch

a-new-code:

His eyes hardened till they appeared as stone, “It was highly necessary, I do not have to allow you to experiment on me to find our method. I could allow us to just theorize what would work on our fathers. I expected you to enjoy experimenting on me, if the situation were reversed I would enjoy doing the same to you. Yet you have taken advantage of this by using methods you know will not work just to cause me pain and give yourself amusement. You are wasting our time and endangering our already fragile partnership, if you do so again I will lock you in a state of pain forever and find a way to take them out on my own. Am I clear?” With each word his voice became more like ice, till you could practically feel it in the air.

The glare did not leave Rumple’s face as he kept his eyes locked on Lelouch.  Lelouch was threatening him.  No, it was more than a threat, he knew that Lelouch would do it.  And he had no defense against that power.  Rumple did not like that.  He was supposed to be the most powerful, but if Lelouch decided to carry through on that promise, he would not be able to stop it.

"You would rely on theorizing to determine the likelihood of success?  Our best guarantee of beating our fathers is to know for certain what will work and what will not.  I admit that the fireball was unnecessary, but we are wasting more time discussing it than was wasted by casting it.  We need to continue."
