I read it. Bought the digital copy on Amazon. Here are my rough summaries of the chapters:
– Killian’s story takes place sometime after Good Form, but before he became Captain Hook. Killian and his crew enter the Leviathan Shoals, where a kraken like monster resides. Killian finds Liam, who is heavily implied to be a mind trick. The mists of the region can cloud the mind, and cause visions. Killian’s crew mate even warns Killian that Liam could be a fake, and reminding him how it would make no sense for him to be alive now. When trying to escape the Leviathan shoals, both the Jolly Roger and Liam’s boat are attacked by the monster. Liam’s boat gets set on fire. Killian suggests a bunch of methods to save him, and Liam insists that he should return with the Jolly Roger and stay in the shoals. Killian’s crew mate makes note of how out of character Liam is behaving, because the real Liam would never give up so easily. Killian sees he’s right, and they leave the shoals without the supposed mirage Liam. A part of Killian still wishes they could be sure they didn’t leave his brother to die again, and yells out “Let the stars guide you home, Liam, wherever you may be.”
– The Rumbelle story takes place during Belle’s stay with Rumple at the Dark Castle. It starts off with Rumple sending Belle off into market on an errand for some food. Rumple has Belle wear an enchanted fastener, that will let him know if Belle tries to wander off. While in town, Belle comes across a childhood friend of hers named Samuel, who appears to have been injured from the Ogre War. His leg was cut by something enchanted, and needs someone with magical expertise to mend it. Belle then suggests taking him back to Rumple. Rumple is hesitant to let him in, but resists Belle’s wishes. He still won’t heal him. Belle takes him inside to rest him up, while she tries to find information about a cure on her own via researching books. Belle then finds Samuel walking inside the castle on his two feet. Turns out that Samuel faked his injury to get inside the castle. Maurice hired him to rescue Belle, and imprison Rumple with Pandora’s box. Belle is outraged, because she made a promise and want to honor it. Samuel tries to convince Belle to help him ambush Rumple, and Belle plays along. Belle fools Samuel, and ends up locking him outside. Rumple then returns, and realizes what has been going on. Rumple mentions that everything is alright, because he’s had his eyes on obtaining Pandora’s box for some time, and Samuel conveniently “delivered it” to him. Rumple doesn’t kill Samuel, as promised to Belle, but sends him somewhere “a bit less comfortable.” Belle admits that she didn’t lock Samuel out just to save Rumple, but also to save the Enchanted Forest. Belle was suspicious about Samuel’s story in the first place, so she looked through his things and found out that Samuel had a map to the castle and a picture of the dagger. Turns out that Samuel was a mercenary who came to take control of the Dark One with his dagger, and use his powers to plunder the land. Belle then asks Rumple that after everything that’s happened tonight, if he finally trusts her. Before Rumple can respond, Belle tells him “nevermind. I know the answer.” It ends with Rumple smiling as Belle walks off to bed.
– The Regina story is fairly short. While traveling looking for Snow White, Regina is ambushed by a mysterious man. Her carriage crashed, and she dislodges her shoulder, which she sarcastically remaks “always makes for easy spell casting.” Regina thinks the stranger is Daniel, and runs towards him falling into a pit. Regina realizes that he’s not Daniel, and he reveals that he’s actually his brother, William. William blames Regina for Daniel’s death, and wants revenge. The reason William blames Regina, is because she knew running away with Daniel against her parents’ wishes put him in harm’s way. He remarks “when has a romance between a noble and a peasant ever ended well?” With Regina injured, William plans to keep her imprisoned in the pit with sand from a sea nymph that can neutralize any magic. Regina tries to convince William that they can get revenge for Daniel together, but he won’t listen. While struggling, Regina accidentally kills William. Regina cries that she can save him, and he responds “You can’t. Just like you couldn’t save my brother.” It then flashes back to Regina in her palace, where she apologizes to Daniel by talking to his ring, and saying she will avenge him.
– Jefferson’s story starts out with him on a realm hopping errand in Camelot. Yes it appears Camelot is its own world separate from the Enchanted Forest. Jefferson crashes a ball, and causes the waiter to trip and spill wine over a noble woman’s dress. While the crowd is distracted by the uproar, Jefferson sneaks into the castle’s treasure room. There he encounters a woman named Priscilla, who claims she is a royal guard there to protect the treasure. Jefferson than suspects that she too is actually a thief. The two hear guards walking towards the treasure room, and they escape together. The two fall in love, and spend time together committing heists. It flashes forward to their wedding, and then when Grace is a toddler. Jefferson and Priscilla agree to retire their realm hopping heists, so they can live a peaceful life with Grace. They’re living in a very nice looking estate paid off from the treasure they’ve stolen over the years. However, their funds start to run low, and taxes are due soon. Jefferson gets a message from a bird. His friend, William (possibly the same William as Daniel’s brother?), tells him that a trinket called the Clock of Evermore has fallen into the hands of a notorious figure residing in Wonderland. Jefferson is tempted, but Priscilla reminds him of the promise they made to always be there for Grace. Jefferson describes the clock as the rarest of the rare. It can set time forward or backwards. Doesn’t sound like time travel exactly, but more something along the lines of Daylight Savings. It’s a way to add extra hours or skip hours for whoever holds it. Priscilla argues that being there for Grace is still worth more than whatever that clock is worth on the market. While Priscilla and Grace sleep, Jefferson sneaks out to go on a realm hopping mission to Wonderland. Jefferson comes across the Dodo, who he asks for directions to a mansion. The Dodo points Jefferson in the right direction, but warns him that he should avoid the place at all costs. The mansion belongs to the March Hare. The March Hare in this version is a gangster and a sadist. The March Hare wears a hat of the ears of the poor hares he’s hunted. Jefferson shrugs off the Dodo’s warning, and continues to the March Hare’s mansion anyway. While Jefferson tries to sneak into the mansion, he is ambushed by the March Hare. The March Hare has tied Jefferson up to a chair at his tea table, and has his hat stowed away back inside his mansion. The March Hare tries to prove to Jefferson that he is a gracious host by offering him tea. He claims that he is just a lonely man with no one worth talking to for miles. “Can you blame me for wanting intelligent conversation?” Jefferson tries to convince the March Hare to let him leave, as he has a family to get back to. The March Hare says it’ll have to wait, and shows him the Clock of Evermore. He says with the clock, tea time never has to end. Jefferson then calls the Hare a madman. The Hare then leaves Jefferson, as he is growing bored of tea time and thinks it’s time for him to go out and add to his crown. After the Hare leaves, Priscilla shows up and frees Jefferson. Jefferson asks how she got there, and she explains that she made a deal with the White Rabbit to realm hop. Priscilla tries to get him to leave back with her, but Jefferson says they can’t leave without his hat. Jefferson can’t take the chance leaving that hat with the Hare, because he’s a madman and would use the hat to follow them. Jefferson tries to persuade Priscilla to go back home with the White Rabbit on her own, but she refuses because “we’re partners.” They sneak into the mansion, and find the hat in the Hare’s library among other rarities he’s collected. The Hare’s guards see them, and they try to escape. While running up a flight of stairs to the Hare’s tea storage room, Priscilla is hit by one of the guard’s arrows. Jefferson tries to convince Priscilla to use the hat and visit the healer near their home, but Priscilla says it’s too late for her. As Priscilla dies, she tells Jefferson that what’s important now is Grace, and that he has to be there for her. Jefferson wishes they had the Clock to give them all the time they needed to heal Priscilla, and he mourns how he never should have come to Wonderland, as it only resulted in losing her. Jefferson kisses Priscilla goodbye, and escapes with his hat before the Hare breaks into the room. It then flashes forward one month later, showing Jefferson and Grace moving into the cottage they are seen living in during the flashbacks seen in “Hat Trick.” Grace mentions how she misses her mom, and Jefferson says he does too. The story ends with Jefferson telling Grace that he will never leave her again.April 1, 2015 at 9:52 pm #300606obisgirlParticipant
I read the scan of Killian’s story and it’s left so open-ended if that was really Liam or if it wasn’t. My instinct was, if it was really Liam, Killian would have done everything possible to save him. But Liam’s story, it’s so incredibly convenient that was he was the only survivor…it’s too good to be true.
So, the mystery solved of who is Grace’s mother and how she and Jefferson met. Once again, Camelot is a plot device. .April 1, 2015 at 10:07 pm #300609kranenParticipant
