Fic: ‘definitely the cinnamon’  
Title: definitely the cinnamon
Fandom: Once Upon a Time (OUaT)
Rating: (G)
Time Period: Season 1, episode 3: at the end.
Summary: She wonders why she accepts.

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

Thinking of episode 3, I began thinking of Emma accepting Mary Margaret’s offer of her spare room.

All characters contained herein are the intellectual property of Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz; I am not affiliated with nor endorsed by them.


When she first came to town, Henry in tow, there was polite interest and virulent malice. She hadn’t expected Mary Margaret.

The offer for Emma to spend the night in Mary Margaret’s spare room seems to come from nowhere. Mary Margaret tells her small details about Storybrooke; information Emma would have to sweat from the others.

But Mary Margaret ...

She doesn’t know what makes her turn up to accept the spare room. Maybe it’s because no one else will talk to her. Maybe it’s because Mary Margaret has cinnamon in her hot chocolate.

That’s it; the cinnamon. It’s not because Mary Margaret has extended a hand and Emma’s decided to grasp it, hold on and hope she’s right in trusting the school teacher.

Yep. It’s the cinnamon.

This is very sweet (and a bit sad in a way, poor Emma feeling forever alone)! I had actually forgotten about the cinnamon in the hot chocolate! :)

Thank you.

The cinnamon seems such a small detail but it did strike a chord with Emma in the second episode (I think) and it seemed an important detail for Emma.

This is really moving. Only reason someone would be so determined that it's something as simple as the cinnamon is fear... and this seems very in keeping with Emma.

This short story is in keeping with her or the fear or both?
