Fic: ‘he is magnificent, and hers’  
Title: he is magnificent, and hers
Fandom: Once Upon a Time (OUaT)
Rating: (PG)
Time Period: Season 2, during Lacey.
Summary: She is not Belle.

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

I've been pondering ideas for this and there have been many! Then, the below story clicked into place.

Spoilers if you’ve not seen the episode.

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


The cane goes down, again and again; the other's grunts punctuate each hit. She wraps the coat close about her, folding her arms and she watches the scene unfolding before her eyes.

The cane strikes, not once nor even twice but again and again; each time it lands with a satisfying thunk or thwack against the other man's flesh. She watches as that cane goes up then down in rapid succession.

This is not a man to whom niceties are easy unless a tool to what he wants. This is a man who rules with an iron fist.

She can see why so many are frightened of him. She feels the lust for that power stir within herself.

This is him, Mister Gold, hidden from sight but she'll lure him out; how easy it will be --- he wants her that badly. No, she frowns briefly. He wants this Belle that he thinks her to be.

If he wants her at all, she decides, he can have her, Lacey, for whatever he wants. The frown vanishes. The town's most powerful man wants her.

And if he is anything like this sight promises?

He is magnificent.

Of all the ideas I'd had for this episode, this one fit best so, thank you!
