A long time ago in the enchanted moors, a young fairy showed kindness to a young human boy who had wrongly taken a magical stone from the shimmering water. Instead of harming the young boy, which she could easily have done, she asked him to return the stone, which he did. It was then that a bond of friendship was formed between the two. Maleficent has always been kind. Even as a young fairy she was nurturing, a sort of mothering protector over the moors. As she grew up she became stronger. Still protective, but as a war brewed between the humans and the magical creatures of the moors, she became more fierce. She quickly became a dangerous force to be reckoned with. She was protective of her home and her family of magical creatures. She fell in love with the young boy she'd met and he became her weakness.
Not a lot of her personality changed when the curse hit and she and Stefan landed in Storybrooke. She became a veterinarian, caring for the local animals. She was still caring and loving. She didn't have much to fight for or about so the fierceness that was necessary in the moors wasn't as present.
Maleficent, a fairy, grew up in The Moors - where all magical creatures lived. They were kept separate from the humans, for the humans feared the magical creatures and stayed away. Maleficent was a protector of The Moors, and kept the magical creatures safe. Once, when she was young, a young human boy ventured into The Moors. He stole a precious stone and she was sent to retrieve the stone. She did so, and asked him to apologize for his action, which he did. He introduced himself as Stefan and the pair began a friendship. She taught him all about The Moors and the creatures that lived within them. He told her of his dream to be King someday, to live in the castle. She encouraged him, believing he would make a great king.
On Maleficent's seventeenth birthday Stefan gave her a present - a kiss, which he said was a representation of true love. The pair were inseparable for another few years until Stefan's hunger for power grew. He disappeared, to work in the castle and find a way to become king, even though he was not a rightful heir. Maleficent was heartbroken, but held out hope that one day he would return, and he did. He apologized for his long absence, insisted he still loved her, and that he had found a way to become king. That he wanted to make her his queen and unite the two worlds - human and magical creature. She was overjoyed. But when she realized what it was he had to do, she was horrified. He needed to make it look like he had killed her. In order to satisfy the current king - who was on his death bed and had promised that whoever killed her would be his successor. Maleficent told him that she would not go along with it. That he would have to find another way. He agreed, and the pair continued their reunion happily...until she fell asleep. Stefan betrayed her, slicing her beautiful feathered wings from her back and disappearing in the darkness of the night.
When Maleficent awoke to find the betrayal, her heart broke again. She vowed revenge, vowed she would never trust or even speak to him again. Fate had another idea...for Maleficent was then pregnant with Stefan's child. She enlisted a trusted companion, Diaval, to keep watch on the human world and to give her any update on Stefan. When Diaval told her that Stefan had become King, she took it as her opportunity to see him. She was barely showing with her pregnancy at that point, and walking with a cane to support the pain from the loss of her wings. She made the long journey to the castle and found a way to speak to him alone.
He was forced to take a bride as his queen and he explained that it couldn't be her, the human world thought her dead. "Stefan, you are their KING. Surely they will listen to you when you tell them the truth." But it was too late. He had already married. Hot tears streamed her face as she told him that she was pregnant with his child. The child would be born of both worlds...unifying them deeper than their own marriage could have. Stefan would not leave his wife, but in secret he would visit The Moors and take care of his pregnant lover. When Maleficent gave birth to Aurora the pair was incredibly happy. But again, Stefan betrayed Maleficent. He stole Aurora from her, taking her to the castle and claiming that she was his daughter - of the queen.
The kingdom had a celebration for the child, at which Maleficent had not been invited. She showed up regardless with a plan. A curse - of sorts - that she would not warn Stefan of. He had lost her trust, he did not deserve to know the truth. "The princess shall indeed grow in grace and beauty, beloved by all who meet her. But...before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday, she will prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel, and fall into a sleep like death! A sleep from which she will never awaken!" Stefan was horrified. How could she? Her own daughter? He begged her not to, begging without giving away the fact that the princess was not his wife's child. She added a loophole to the curse, one that would frighten him even further. "The princess can be awoken from her death-like sleep, but only...by True Love's Kiss." With a pointed glare at her former lover, Maleficent left the kingdom to endure her grief in The Moors.
Unable to handle the stress - the secrecy that the child was not her own, the curse placed upon the child, the knowledge that the king did not love her - the queen grew ill. Aurora was sent away to live with three fairies, and Maleficent was pleased, if only slightly, for she was able to keep closer watch on the child. As she grew, Maleficent wanted to tell the child the truth, but she knew she could not. She could not withdraw her curse on her own daughter. The queen died and Stefan made his way back to The Moors. To beg Maleficent to undo the curse, but he did not find her. He sent for his daughter, locking her in the palace, and sent an invitation to Maleficent to come to the castle as well, indicating he wanted to offer peace.
Maleficent accompanied Aurora to the castle, and to her dismay the young girl did indeed find a spindle and prick her finger, falling asleep. At the same moment, Stefan presented Maleficent's wings to her as an offer of peace and an apology. He wanted her back. He wanted the three of them to live as a family, a happily ever after. Her wings reattached to their rightful place on her back and they went to tell their daughter the truth when they found her.
Luckily - the story did not end in woe...at least not immediately. For as Maleficent bent down to kiss her comatose daughter on the forehead, the princess awoke, and the couple was able to explain the truth to the young girl. Maleficent was crowned queen and the two realms were united at last...if only for a moment before Regina's curse hit. Stefan and Maleficent had been honeymooning in the general area of the curse when it hit and therefore were swept up without their daughter.
Storybrooke; Maleficent became a veterinarian, caring for animals. She was known as Fae Medici, married to Stefan Medici - who ran a daycare called Children's Castle. The pair did not have a child - their curse was their infertility.
Sample Post:Maleficent awoke with a start. "Mistress..." She rolled her eyes as she sat up. "Diaval how many times do I have to tell you not to call me that? You are not my servant, you are my...well my most trusted companion. You may call me by my name." He nodded sheepishly. "My apologies, Maleficent...for that and for waking you. I have news from the castle." As she rubbed her eyes and ran a hand through her long raven hair she sighed, looking up at him. "Please sit, I hate craning my neck like this." She said, patting the ground next to her. He did so and she quirked a brow. "Well go on...what's the news?" She asked, curiously. He fidgeted and she frowned, fidgeting normally meant it was something to do with Stefan and that she wouldn't like it. "It's Stefan. Since he returned to the kingdom with..." She watched as his eyes flickered to her back and she winced slightly. "With my wings...go on." She prompted softly. "The king named him as successor, believing you were dead, and now the king has died...Stefan is King." Maleficent let out a sigh of a breath and nodded. "Thank you Diaval." She said softly, taking a moment to think of the information she'd been given. He began to move to leave and she put a hand on his arm to stop him. "Diaval..?" She started, looking at him curiously. "I'd like to make a trip to visit the new king, and I would like for you to accompany me. This can happen one of two ways...either you obtain a horse for me and fly yourself, or you become a horse." He cringed slightly at the second choice. "I'll find you a horse, and I would very much like to fly again." She smiled. "Good. Hurry back."
When Diaval returned with a horse for her she kindly transformed him back to his truest form, that of a raven, and the pair set off toward the castle. He kept an eye on her from the skies and when they arrived at the castle she transformed him back into a man and he stayed with her horse as she entered the castle. "Where might I find the king?" She asked of a nearby guard. The guard looked confused, no one had ever asked him such a question. "Nevermind. I'll find him." The guard protested and she rolled her eyes. "Shh..." She said softly, placing a delicate finger to his lips. He tried to speak again but was unable. Her mystical eyes flashed and fear filled his as she turned away, in search of Stefan.
"Stefan?!" She called out, anger edging her voice. "I know you're here...where are you?" She called. A voice from above spoke cautiously. "It's King Stefan now, even to you...Male---" He coughed, not finishing her name for fear of someone hearing him. A wicked smile appeared on her lips as she spotted the source of the voice standing at the top of an intricate staircase. She ascended the steps, wincing slightly in pain and using her cane for support. When she reached him she looked over him, cursing her mind for still feeling an attraction. "Now then, is there a more private place we can talk?" She asked him. He frowned, turning and leading her into a private bedroom. She shut the door behind them. "What are you doing here, Maleficent?" He asked her, fear edging his voice.
"I've come to accept your apology." She said softly, limping to the bed and taking a seat. She sighed. "What you did was unforgivable, but I can't live like this anymore. You're King now. I've come back so you can make good on your promise. We can unite the two worlds as you said, human and magical...if you marry me." He sighed taking a seat next to her. "The human world thinks you're dead, Maleficent." "Stefan, you are their KING. Surely they will listen to you when you tell them the truth." He shook his head. "I can't." "Why not?" "Because Maleficent, I've already married." Her heart sunk. "I had to, the kingdom would not be ruled without a king and a queen, and powerful people did not want to see me rule unless I took a worthy bride..." Tears streamed hot down Maleficent's cheeks and she closed her eyes. "Stefan...I'm pregnant." She said softly. She opened her eyes to look at his shocked and grief-stricken face. "Our child will be born of both worlds, both magical and human...unifying them far more than our marriage could have." She took a shaky breath. "Maleficent, I can't just leave my wife." "Do you love her?" She asked, afraid of the answer. He reached out, cupping her face in his hand and forcing her to look at him as he spoke sternly. "No. Maleficent I will ALWAYS love you." She could see truth in his eyes and she forced back tears. He kissed her lips softly and she melted into his embrace, crying softly into his shoulder. His arms wrapped protectively around her and he kissed the top of her head.
After a few moments she pulled away, wiping her eyes. "What do we do?" She asked him, her eyes pleading. "We go back to the way things are. You return to the moors, I resume my duties as King. But Maleficent...I will NOT abandon you. I will visit you in secret. I'll take care of you, and you will raise our child in the moors. It will be difficult, but we will make it work. I promise." She swallowed hard. "How will you be able to pull that off?" She asked him seriously. "I'm the King. Kings have to go off on diplomatic trips all the time. No one will know or notice anything strange." She nodded and leaned in, softly kissing his lips. "I'm not happy with the way things have turned out, but I'm willing to give you...and us...another chance. I love you Stefan." He seemed relieved to hear her words.
The matter settled, Maleficent stood, pulling her cloak over her head to cover herself as she headed to the door. She turned back for a moment to look at him. "I expect I'll see you soon." He nodded and she smiled, leaving the room and exiting the castle, meeting Diaval by her horse. "How'd it go?" He asked, concern etching his face as he saw tear stains on her cheeks, he reached out to wipe them and she shook her head. "It'll be okay. Let's just go home, I'm exhausted." He nodded. "Let me ride with you. I don't want you falling off in your exhaustion." She nodded. "Thank you, Diaval." He lifted her onto the horse and then climbed up behind her, wrapping his arms protectively around her and the pair set off back for the moors.
I know this application goes far against what OUAT did with Maleficent. However, I do hope that the staff will at least consider it. If it is rejected, I will leave, no questions asked - I understand. All I ask is that it is at least considered. Thank you. ♥
