Fic: ‘aim straight and true’  
Title: aim straight and true
Fandom: Once Upon a Time (OUaT)
Rating: (PG)
Time Period: Season 1, episode 3: Charming & Snow escaping the Queen’s guards.
Summary: He aims and fires.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

Thinking of episode 3, this scene came to mind. I’ve not written an action scene in some time and it was Charming, so ...

I know I’ve not remembered this scene right but I just like Charming with that bow in hand.

_______________________


Seeing the bow on the ground, he tumbles forward, rolling, and comes to his feet with the bow at the ready. He looks along the arrow, the Queen’s black guard at the other end. He looses the arrow. It speeds through the forest, between trees, and hits its target.

The guard falls, face forward; the arrow sticking from his back, standing almost to attention. Bow in his hand, he closes the distance between he and his target, bow still in hand. Like everything related to the Queen, it, too, is black.

The horse has reared from the sudden weight lost and bounds down the path, its one passenger righting themselves and struggling for control. He looks around them, bow ready.

Quiet reigns.

This makes me want to rewatch to scene in question! ;)

Lovely.

Quiet reigns.

Nicely ended; I love the play on words here. :)

Perfect line is perfect ♥

I wasn't very sure it would be since I've only seen up to the third episode!

It definitely fits the show and fits the Queen :) Nice work!

Thank you; I've been concerned as to whether what I was writing was fitting various characters and the show.

I'm afraid you'll be inundated with small scenes like this while I watch and get used to characters. =P

Hehe, that's okay with me :)

... eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeexcellent!

(And now I feel like Montgomery Burns from The Simpsons for having said the above like that!)

Heh. Both in watching it; and reading this, it makes me think of Robin Hood more than 'Prince Charming'.

He was trained in many weapons as befitting his station?

Well yeah; but I don't generally think of a Prince being trained in that many weapons. A longsword is fairly cliched; but other than that...

... wow.
