–Emma and Co are running through the NL jungle tracking Henry
–At the same time Neal is running toward Emma and Co, without knowing it.
–Suddenly the bang into each other, very Manhattan like. They even do the whole “no..NEAL!?” “EMMA?!” thing again
I actually haven’t thought about it much, but have now decided that this would be perfection and must happen!
I do love the fluffy fanfic version! Doubt that reality will be as fluffy though. *sigh*
I can imagine Emma rushing to him and hugging him, just to make sure he’s real. Then she’ll maybe pull back and reach up to touch his face with a stunned expression and be all, “But how?! You were shot when you fell through the portal!” Then Neal can give a quick recap of MAP, and seeing her in the crystal ball, and however he ends up getting back to NL. And then they’ll tell him that Pan has Henry, (which he’s not currently aware of, so he may still not know when he gets to NL), and he’ll look terrified and determined and he’ll hold her face in his hands and look her in the eye and tell her that they’re gonna get their son back. And I’ll drown in a puddle of tears.
