Why This Must Be Read: This is one of my all-time favourite Rumbelle fics. It's a non-magic, fake!marriage AU with lots of little nods to the canon, with a beautiful development of their relationship.

Why This Must Be Read: This was written for me in 2016's Rumbelle Christmas in July fic exchange and not only did it fulfill my expectations, it far surpassed them. Time-travel stories are a weakness of mine and this is a wonderful one.

Why This Must Be Read: While it starts out as a typical marriage of convenience with mutual pining, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it didn't stop at the usual point but continued to explore things further. There are some fairly heavy themes regarding mental illnesses but they are well handled.

Why This Must Be Read: This is another of my old-time favourites. An AU take on the ending of the Neverland saga that, aside from the relationship between Belle and Rumple, alsp explores the morality of both heroes and villains (considering the later seasons' mess, this fic is quite prophetic).
