"CaptainSwan" is the fan-dubbed name of the Killian Jones/Emma Swan ship on ABC's Once Upon a Time.

Ship Info

When Emma Swan meets dashing pirate Killian Jones, also known as Captain Hook, in the Enchanted Forest, the chemistry between them gradually intensifies. However, it is not until Neverland that Hook's feelings become more emotionally charged rather than seeing her as just another wench, and they eventually kiss after Hook saves her father David. Despite their kiss, Emma decides not to go any further and denies any returning feelings towards the captain. They return back to Storybrooke after rescuing Emma's son Henry, although Emma and Henry are forced to leave Storybrooke to escape Peter Pan's Dark Curse.

One year later, Hook finds Emma and Henry and takes them back to Storybrooke where Emma's family are kept inside the town by Zelena Mills. Zelena curses Hook's lips so that the next time he and Emma kiss, Emma's magical abilities will be taken away from her. When Hook refuses to oblige, Zelena drowns him and therefore forces Emma to perform CPR which involves mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Although Emma loses her powers, after Zelena's defeat and later demise, Emma and Hook inadvertantly travel back in time to the Enchanted Forest where they join in one of the classic adventures between Emma's parents. A scenario at a tavern involves Emma seducing past-Hook so that present-Hook can sneak aboard his ship and make a deal with Snow White. Eventually, Emma's magic returns to her and when they return to Storybrooke, Hook tells Emma that he sold his ship to find Emma in NYC. This causes Emma to kiss him outside Granny's Diner. The pair eventually go on a date and are in a relationship. Through one problem or another, their love proves to be resilient and true. Killian and Emma later get engaged to become married, although Killian faces guilt over having murdered David's father back in the Enchanted Forest.
