Look at how Charming hesitates before he kisses his daughter. Despite everything they have been through in the past year he is still terrified that he will scare her off. He turns his head towards the bedroom as if to say “Snow, come here, Emma needs comforting,” but then he remembers his wife is busy and he can’t bare to see his baby in pain any longer so he just goes for it. He probably expects Emma to pull away, but instead she leans into him, because in that moment that kiss is the most comforting thing she has ever felt.
i am supremely pleased with this, it’s not even that these are my perfect fancasts for james and lily, but they’re a fuckload better than the movies, THEY DIED YOUNG, THAT WAS PART OF THE WHOLE TRAGEDY OF IT, THEY DIDN’T DIE IN THEIR EARLY FORTIES AFTER HAVING LIVED MOST OF THEIR WHOLE LIFE AND THEN FINALLY SETTLING DOWN TO HAVE A KID, oh no i made myself sad, but sigh, i have a lot of feelings about the marauders and lily (via laurellas)
