I own the fic, but not the story it’s based on. Please guess the pairing. 

  

Once upon a time, there was a boy, and there was a girl, and that was all that mattered.

  

Once upon a time, she fell in love. She fell in love with his eyes, and his heart and his devotion and the way his big hands scratched his head as the hair grew back. 

  

Once upon a time, there was a man, who never acted like a boy, who fell in love with a girl. He fell in love with her accent, and her smile, and how the way she talked reminded him of everything that once made him happy. 

  

And, once upon a different time, it wouldn’t have mattered that he was in his late thirties, and she was in her teens. In that time, it wouldn’t have mattered that his job required him to never fall in love, ever. If they lived there, no one would frown upon them, no one would think he was incompetent, and no one would count her seducing him as rape. 

  

They did not live in that time. 

  

It mattered that she was turning fifteen, and that he was turning thirty-seven. 

  

It mattered that he wasn’t allowed to fall in love.

  

It mattered that it would be considered disgusting. 

  

It mattered that any physical love-making would be legally considered rape. 

  

Once upon a time, there was a man, and there was a girl, and they fell in love. She was too young, and he was forbidden. Once upon a time, they wished for that “once upon a time” fairy-tale ending, but “once upon a time” never came.

  1. Awesome! *claps*
    Repetition, ohh I love it… it’s so good. That’s… really, that’s beautiful. Really well done.
    Call me a psycho… Butler/Minerva?

  2. Thank you. I always get nervous when I use repitition . . . And that’s exactly who it was! 😀

  3. Amazing. You’ve outdone yourself again. I really love this fairytale influence. The whole thing seems charming and sweet but then there are the deeper more subtle-ish darker themes. I like how you emphasise certain lines by giving them their own line. Basically, I love it. 😀

    I guessed it was Butler but I couldn’t guess the other character and then I read through it again and you wrote “her accent” and then I was like ohhhhhhhhh.

  4. That was amazing TWS, as expected from you.

    I guesses Butler straight away, kind of obvious and as soon as it said, ‘Her accent’ and ‘in her teens’ I guessed it was minerva!!!!!!!

    I LOVE IT SO MUCH

    TWS, that was Epic.
    If they had a kid…it would be like “Zut Alors, all I want for christmas is my two favourite guns!”

  6. 🙂 Brilliant. Magnifeque. I cant spell french, forgive me. 😆
    Beautiful, TWS. I love that. Honestly, for the beginning, I pictured Lucy and Tam Farrel, supposing you know who they are. 🙂

  7. Well, this is amazing!!! The style’s all poetic and that makes it pretty. 🙂 I had almost no idea of the pairing, then I re-read it and I realized who it was!!!

    Butler/Minerva!!! Cool peom. It’s sweet and sad and weird. 🙂 You should do one from Butler’s POV. I’d love to see that. Lol

  9. That was pretty awesome. You made it flow perfectly and the repitition gave just the right effect. Good Job.

  10. AWESHUM. ‘his big hands scratched his head as the hair grew back’ BUTLER 😀 ‘her accent’ MINERVA 😀 Luves you, TWS. AWESHUM.

    Wow, you are The Weird Shipper. Butler/Minerva?? If it hadn’t been written so well, I’d worry you were losing you mind. =)=)
