Rumplestiltskin | Once Upon a Time

[Captain Colter Stevens will walk down the street, round the corner, past the dark alley, and then he will be stabbed. And if he doesn't reveal the identity of his attacker they will send him back in time ("it's NOT time travel, Captain, it's alternate realities") - and he will be stabbed again. And then again. Until he gets it right.

A 'test drive', he had heard them call it.

Senator Forley had been an important man. He must have been, because somebody had very deliberately put a large knife into him to end his importance. Now Colter finds himself tapped into the guy's body to walk his last steps. To figure out who killed him and why.

It hadn't worked the first time around, and not the second. Around the corner, past the dark alley. Turn quickly enough to disarm the attacker and identify him. How hard can it be?

But how do you will your body to move if you know what lies ahead? Even if it's, technically, not your body to begin with.]

I wish-- [The words start slowly, automatically, before he even realizes he's uttering them. Colter pauses, leaning heavily against a streetlamp for a moment. He rests his forehead on the cold metal, face scrunching up in anger.] I wish this would stop.
magicispower: (You rang?)

[After living over two hundred years as the Dark One, Rumplestiltskin has become quite adept at finding new worlds and locating persons of interest within them. Persons of interest include those who may be involved in his future, or who may be able to help him find new ways of tracking down his son. Captain Colter Stevens, and the experiments he's undergoing, have become a bit of an obsession of Rumple's. How do they work? How does one manipulate time as these men do?

The perfect opportunity to pry arrives when the Captain, now in the body of another, wishes for the experiments to end. Not that the man needed to wish out loud for Rumple to know; he can recognize a desperate soul by now.

When he appears, it's with a small puff of smoke behind Colter. Stepping forward, he taps the man on the shoulder.]

Pardon me, dearie, but you seem terribly distraught about something. Could it be that you require some... assistance to escape from a troublesome predicament?
8minutes: (12 //)

[personal profile] 8minutes 2013-11-30 12:53 am (UTC)(link)
[When someone is coming at him from behind Colter jerks away, bringing his arm up in defense against a possible knife strike. He pushes away from the lamp, bringing the pole between them, his mind already racing.

This time he will get the guy. He's too early, skipping the corner and the alley and that will make all the difference - this time Colter will bash his face into the concrete until he gets an identity and then he will be out of here. Because he's mad now, furious about the world and his place in it, and more than ready for a fight.

It is then that the words finally register, as well as the fact that what he sees isn't actually what he's anticipating. At all. To be fair, Colter doesn't think he could have anticipated that if he had all the time and imagination in the world.]

What? [It comes out clumsy and stupid sounding. He gapes for another moment, anger lost in perplexity, then starts shaking his head.] Oh, nonono, no, I can not do this right now. [He blinks forcefully, once, twice, as if trying to will Rumpel away. Focus. He needs to focus.] What is this, some kind of glitch, is that what it is?
magicispower: (Hello dearie)

[personal profile] magicispower 2013-11-30 01:05 am (UTC)(link)
Oh no, I assure you that I'm quite real.

[His appearance isn't at all usual in any time, world, dimension... Rumple is quite used to people being perplexed by him. That doesn't mean he enjoys the fearful or disgusted looks, but he certainly will use his unusual appearance to his advantage when possible.]

But you! [He begins, stepping closer to Colter and eventually wrapping one hand around the pole between them.] You're the one who isn't quite 'real', aren't you?

[He lets out a high pitched laugh, still holding onto the pole but leaning back a little. His other hand moves through the air with a flourish as he introduces himself.] My name is Rumplestiltskin. I believe I might be able to help you.
8minutes: (15 //)

[personal profile] 8minutes 2013-11-30 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
[Rumplestiltskin. He's seeing Rumplestiltskin.

After backing away a little (because not real hits a nerve) Colter feels laughter bubble up inside him. It's inappropriate and a bit hysterical, so he quickly presses the back of his hand to his mouth, giggling along for a moment. I'm going crazy. I am actually going insane.]

I'm sure you are.

[He exhales airily with his remaining laughter, smile turning sardonic.]

And how would you do that.
magicispower: (Let's make some magic)

[personal profile] magicispower 2013-11-30 01:42 am (UTC)(link)
[Laughter? Well, they do say that laughter is the best medicine! Unfortunately for Mr. Colter here, his current 'ailment' requires something a bit more... potent if he wishes for a cure.]

You won't doubt me for long.

[Rumple finally removes his hand from the pole, and with a wave of that hand, a plush red armchair suddenly appears on the sidewalk.]

Why, with magic, of course! Have a seat, dearie, and we'll discuss our options!

8minutes: (02 //)

[personal profile] 8minutes 2013-11-30 01:51 am (UTC)(link)
Of course!

[Oh, this is getting better and better.]

Wow. Rumpelstiltskin -- that's all very nice of you. I appreciate the effort. And that's a really comfy looking chair, too. But, you see, in less than five minutes there is a guy stabbing me. He's probably looking for me right now; probably he's already watching me arguing with myself.

[He reaches out for the chair - a brief moment of hesitation, a flicker of uncertainty on his face when he touches the fabric - and runs his hand over the backrest.] I suppose I could make it easy for him, leaning back and waiting for the blade to cut my throat, but you see, that's just not the kind of guy I am?
magicispower: (Just sign on the dotted line)

[personal profile] magicispower 2013-11-30 01:57 am (UTC)(link)
That would be a problem, wouldn't it?

[And so, with a snap of his fingers, a sword appears in his hand. He tosses it onto the chair, the sharp edge cutting into the fabric where it lands and exposing some of the stuffing inside.]

Would that make you feel a bit more protected? Or... [He pauses, stroking his chin as if in thought.] I could turn him into a frog. That should hold so long as there aren't any princesses around to kiss him.
8minutes: (04 //)

[personal profile] 8minutes 2013-11-30 02:19 am (UTC)(link)
[Colter winces back, staring at the sword. Looking back and forth between the chair and Rumpel he approaches it slowly, carefully, reaching out for the handle. Again he stops when he can actually grab it, his expression twisting into some sort of helplessness.

He licks his lips, then pulls it out, weighing it in his hands. Even keeping in mind that hallucinations can look and feel real, this is unsettling.]

A frog? [He snorts, trying to retain some of his blasé attitude.] Man, you turn that guy into a frog and I'll listen to anything you have to say.
magicispower: (The Dark One)

[personal profile] magicispower 2013-11-30 02:48 am (UTC)(link)

[Rumple claps his hands together gleefully, a grin spreading across his face. After Colter removes the sword from the chair, he repairs the tear with a wave of his hand, then goes to lounge on it himself. Now he turns his gaze expectantly toward the corner of the street.]

I expect that man should arrive any second now? Won't he be in for a surprise!
8minutes: (05 //)

[personal profile] 8minutes 2013-11-30 10:13 am (UTC)(link)
[Colter attempts to brush his fingers along the 'healed' fabric as well but pulls back his hand when Rumple sits.]

I suppose he will be.

[He looks at his watch. Rumple is right, Colter is late. He should have passed the alley almost two minutes ago and no doubt his assailant is looking for him.

Turning away from Rumple and the streetlamp he slowly approaches the end of the street. He doubts the guy will show himself while he's lingering in the cone of light. He's blocking the view on the chair, too, and hides the sword behind his back. It's stupid, because they're both not real but he can't deny that some part of him - some dumb, boyish, scared part - wants them to be.

Wants to not get stabbed again.

And then Colter sees him, ducking around the corner, face hidden behind a black ski mask. Of course, that's why he could never get a glimpse at his face in the dark.]
magicispower: (Let's make some magic)

[personal profile] magicispower 2013-11-30 02:45 pm (UTC)(link)
[Rumple watches with a small smirk as Colter heads toward the end of the street. He rises to his feet so that he can get a better look when the masked assassin shows himself. It's a simple enough spell for him and he throws it at the man, who is now a little bullfrog, hopping toward Colter while his knife clatters harmlessly to the ground. The frog croaks and hops around wildly, obviously distressed by its sudden predicament. Well, he'll leave it up to his new friend to decide whether to leave the frog as it is, or to squish it under his shoe.]

Not so scary now, is he?

badappled: (Snow: dirty dealings)

2-19. Pre-Curse/Vintage!Rumple/Snow, if that's okay?

[personal profile] badappled 2013-11-30 02:31 am (UTC)(link)
[True love's kiss always works. At least, it's supposed to.

But whatever potion Regina tricked Charming into drinking was too dark and strong for a simple kiss to undo. When she'd taken Rumplestiltskin's potion to relieve her broken heart and remove her memory of love, it was Charming who brought her back by opening her heart enough for true love's kiss to break the spell. She tried to do the same for Charming, but he coldly rebuffed her. It wasn't just a lack of love poisoning him against her.

It was hate. And Snow White knew, most of all, what hate could do to a good heart. She didn't know how to reach him, but if she failed, it wouldn't matter whether or not they won back the kingdom. The Queen would win.

In the dense thicket of the forest that was once her home, she calls out with desperate determinaton:]


[She's sought the Dark One out before. He always knows, somehow. He's always there.]
magicispower: (You rang?)

Of course!

[personal profile] magicispower 2013-11-30 02:59 am (UTC)(link)
[When it comes to this darling couple, (or ex-couple thanks to Regina), Rumple always has time. He always sees Snow and Charming as an integral part of his future, and believes that the two must be united if he ever wishes to find his son. As a result, he's there in a flash when Snow calls for him, perched on a tree branch above her.]

A call again so soon? Not to say that I don't appreciate your company, my dear!

[What he knows, he keeps to himself for now. He wants to hear the story in Snow's own words. The Queen had gloated to him already about what she'd done, so Rumple certainly isn't out of the loop.]
badappled: (Snow: this is the deal you want to make?)

[personal profile] badappled 2013-11-30 03:16 am (UTC)(link)
[She expects him to be there, to appear as he tends to do, and yet she still emits a little surprised gasp at his voice. It unexpectedly comes from above her, and she peers upward in wonder and takes a brief second to steel herself against what's to come.]

I need your help. A cure. For...

[Here, she stumbles. The first time she wanted a cure, it was to alleviate a broken heart--a sad condition, perhaps, but not so terrifying as what has been forced upon Charming.]

... for hate. The Queen tricked Charming into drinking a potion to spare my life. It's filled his heart with hate for everything he once loved.
magicispower: (They'll never love you)

[personal profile] magicispower 2013-11-30 03:24 am (UTC)(link)
[Those gasps of surprise are what make the sudden appearances from behind (or above in this case) worthwhile. After so many years in this world, Rumple needs to be able to amuse himself somehow.]

I see.

[He hops down from the tree, landing in a crouch next to Snow but quickly rising to his feet.]

You haven't already tried true love's kiss, have you?
Edited 2013-11-30 03:24 (UTC)
badappled: (Snow: side eye)

[personal profile] badappled 2013-11-30 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
[Though she wouldn't call herself afraid, an unconscious instinct leads her to take a single step away from him.]

For the brief moment he let me close enough to try it? It didn't work. He felt nothing. The way he spoke to me ... it wasn't him.

[She allows herself the flicker of a bitter smile at the memory. Then it's gone, and in its place steel resolve.]

I won't let Regina turn him into a monster. I want to make a deal. Whatever you want. Whatever it takes. Help me cure him.

[Rumple stands his ground, finding that slight fear to be to his benefit. he is the Dark One, after all.]

The Queen becomes more powerful day by day. I'm surprised she managed to concoct such a fiendish brew.

[He was, of course, to blame for Regina's descent into dark magic. Encouraging her hatred was an integral part of the future, and it's these little hiccups along the way that he has to resolve to make sure that future comes to pass.]

But! Luckily for you... there is a cure. And I will tell you precisely what it is if you do one teeny little favor for me in return.

[She tries to contain the little flame of hope in her chest. There's a cure. There's a cure. Those were the words she needed to hear to suppress the nagging doubt blooming in her heart. The Queen is powerful, and until the moment when Charming's normally warm eyes fixed Snow with that cold loveless gaze, she'd thought they stood a chance against her. Together.

Since that moment, she's felt more alone than ever--like the lost girl who ran away into the forest after the Queen first sent her huntsman to rip out her heart. Charming was the one who found her, who filled her with life and hope for love and a home, and without him she felt that light slipping away.

Rumplestiltskin is her last hope, but everything has a price with him. She and Charming have learned as much in their dealings with him so far, which is why she peers at him uncertainly when she asks the question he undoubtedly expects.]

What is the favor?

There's no need to look so skeptical, dearie. What I want from you is simple enough.

[While the Queen's hatred of Snow is quite strong already, Rumple thinks he'll feel even more comfortable if he can fan the flames of her rage even further. And this offers quite the excellent opportunity to do such a thing.]

After the cure has been... administered... I want you and Charming to pretend that it failed. You must tell him to pretend that he still hates you, and that you are still heartbroken. And then, I will tell you the precise time to drop the ruse. Think you can manage that?

[He'll pick a time that will be sure to enrage the Queen so thoroughly that she continues to descend into darkness.]

[Her brow furrows at the strange request. It isn't that she doesn't understand. She knows what he's asking of her, and although it won't be easy, it's certainly something she can manage if it means being together. All she wants is Charming back, and to see that hateful look in his eyes fade away like a storm. It will be quite the chore to keep up the ruse once the curse is broken, especially if they've no choice but to wait for Rumplestiltskin to give them leave to stop--whenever that is.

It will be worth it, but she can't help but ask the same question she asked when he kept locks of her hair, knowing he wouldn't necessarily give her any kind of clear answer.]

Why would you need us to do that?
magicispower: (They'll never love you)

[personal profile] magicispower 2013-11-30 02:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Let's just say... I want to teach the Queen a little lesson, and you two would be the perfect assistants.

[And because of Regina's gloating, Rumple already knows what potion she used. It's actually quite amateur, despite her belief in its potency. With little more than a mind-control element in the potion, a simple spell can fix Charming's deluded thoughts. but really, what fun would that be? And beyond fun, he'll want Regina to think the two figured out how to break the curse on their own.]

Do we have a deal, or not?
badappled: (Snow: worried)

[personal profile] badappled 2013-11-30 02:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Pawns, you mean.

[Oh, this makes her feel much better. There is enough grief between her and Regina without getting herself mixed in with the Dark One's schemes against her. She certainly does not like being used as a pawn in their games.

She shuts her eyes and lets out a silent sigh through her nose. She doesn't like it, but they both know she'll go ahead and take the deal anyway. There was the slightest chance she could find another way, but what if she didn't? She couldn't bet on Rumplestiltskin willing to deal with her a second time if she failed.]

Fine. It's a deal. But I want a guarantee this ruse won't need to last long.
magicispower: (Let's make some magic)

I'm doing you quite the favor, aren't I? Bitterness doesn't suit you, doll!

[The grin on his face is simply joyful as he watches Snow think over the deal. Of course she'll accept. What other choice does she have?]

How long is long within your meaning of long? When contracting, you must be specific with your terms!

[But she is bargaining, which is more than most do. Rumple gives her credit for that.]
