Summary: When Belle boarded the Jolly Roger Archie was in no condition to alert her to his presence, thus leaving him at the mercy of Hook for several more days before finally being rescued. Now Archie must adjust to a world in darkness, and Ruby does her best to help him. (Canon divergence from 2x11 - The Outsider and outwards.)
Main characters: Archie Hopper, Ruby Lucas
Pairing: Red Cricket (surprise!) and eventually a few of my favourite broships (surprise for real?)
Warnings: Heads up, aftermath of torture! Heavy angst in this first chapter, but there will be fluff
and more angstfurther down the line.
Author’s note: I must shamefully admit that this chapter has been ready for close to half a year… :S I intended to wait until I was done with the whole thing before posting, but I’ve hit a dry spell writing-wise so I scrapped that plan. Figured that posting the first chapter might be the incentive I needed to finish the darn thing in a timely manner! It’s worth a shot, anyways. :P
Feedback, as usual, would be lovely! :D

Oh, my god, oh, god.
*Heads down to Hook’s room, smiles evilly and does what Ruby wished exactly*
But Ruby, I really don’t think ‘all he would have to do is obey’ is a good thought, over everything that has occurred. :( But fellow cricket… you had me crying, sobbing really, big horrible sobbing with tears streaming down my face, thats how good your writing is. I swear, Hook needs to be hit one way or another, I’m betting on Geppetto, Pinoke or Red. And I need the whole Booth family to get together and help him through. Poor Archie. D””:
But honestly, wonderful job acoupletshort! Give us more chapters! <3333
And with the maniacal laughter out of the way…
You are such a darling for taking the time to comment! And such praise! Thank you, my friend, it boosts morale and tickles the muses. :D I’m happy to hear I managed to pull your heartstrings a little. Archie’s got a rocky path ahead of him, but don’t worry, he won’t be alone.
Oh, and without spoiling too much I can promise you someone will get punched in the face. :P

The thing is…
even if my OTP never becomes canon, I will still ship it.
even if you write out a dissertation explaining why my OTP will never become canon, I will still ship it.
even if the creator issued a statement tomorrow that said my OTP will never become canon, I will still ship it.
even if no one else in the universe ships my OTP, I will still ship it.
You wanna know why? Because I fucking love my OTP. And nothing will change that.
Just because a ship is fanon does not invalidate said ship! In many ways it can actually be a big advantage. :P
“I don’t care if Jiminy does chirp, I’ll still be glad and excited to see him. But I do hope to see more of Archie, too! I just want my favorite character in there somehow, in some form, and lots of him!”
This. So much this.
