Captain Swan AU: Princess Emma, having grown tired of all of the balls thrown in honor of finding her a suitor, escapes the castle in hopes of leaving her royal life behind. Along the way, she runs into the infamous Captain Hook and asks for passage on his ship, promising him all the riches she brought along with her. After proving herself, he offers her a place on his ship. They traverse the realm, pillaging and pirating, and eventually, they find themselves falling for one another. It isn’t until Emma sees a festival at a town they’ve come to port in, spotting a loving couple dancing, that she decides she needs to go home. Killian, unable to deny the woman he loves what she wishes, takes her back to her kingdom where a celebration is held in honor of her return as well as finally finding the person she was meant to spend the rest of her life with.
