AU. When the curse is broken, Regina escapes with another spell.
Tired of being casted as the villain, Regina creates a world where she saves lives. As Dr. Regina Mills, Chief of Trauma, she finally thinks she can put her painful past behind and begin to make amends for her wrongdoings. She figures it’s a win-win situation - everyone from FTL is rid of her, and she is rid of them.
Too bad she wasn’t the only one who made it to the new world.
Enter Dr. Emma Swan, Chief of Pediatric Surgery and medical prodigy, the newest addition to Maine Medical Center.
God damn it.
