This is why this family is beautiful. And exactly why it is the most beautiful possible ending of this story. Family.
Just look at Emma’s face. I realize this isn’t canon, but that look on her face says, “This is the woman who raised my son. That is HER son. This amazing woman whom I love, loves my child so much. Just like I do. She knows how to comfort him. How to make him feel safe. She loves him so much.
And it makes me fall I love with her all over again every time I watch it.”
Now. Someone fic that. Because THAT is what Swan Queen is about. The love of two women for THEIR child. The redemption brought about by both of them learning to love together. A family with fractured family tree branches everywhere, finally made whole by this one action.
THIS is family. This is what SQ fans see. Not the overt sexualization that opponents of SQ throw out, which really only speaks more about THEM than us. Women together isn’t just sex. That’s a male propagated fantasy and INSULTING to the Swan Queen fandom.
