snapebraille4tu: (Don't Stop Believing)
Oh what fun I've had, fleshing this little idea out. Hermione and Severus have been near and dear, and I feel good about the end result. First of all, none of this will make a lick of sense if you haven't already read Mermaid Pearls by [ profile] mywitch. Also, in my mind, their island? It's one of the outer, magically veiled islands of Orkney. They fell in love with Orkney some years ago. [ profile] lenaa1987 told their love story beautifully with her story Reel a Around the Sun. If you haven't visited these gorgeously told tales, oh my are in for SUCH A TREAT!!!

[ profile] mywitchand [ profile] lenaa1987 I am still, still, on such a high. I hope my little homage to your stories will make you smile.

It had seemed like a crazy dream, to leave everything we knew and to start over again, doing something so out of the ordinary. I think the decision was actually easier for Severus, the idea of being so totally...removed. It took some convincing for me to be swayed, but now...I wouldn't trade this life for anything. When we first became the Light Keepers of this small island, the days and nights would blend together. It took months before the rhythm clicked. Luna had said to continue to be patient and open. She was, of course, right. Now we could move through the the day seamlessly, claiming the nights as our own. Severus and I took turns illuminating the sea with our magic, protecting the ships that passed by our tiny rock.

It was just before dawn, and I could hear the waves crashing against our lighthouse. I sleepily rolled over and found the bed empty. I stretched and smiled, listening to the sounds of breakfast being prepared downstairs. Delicious smells drifted up the spiral staircase, and I could hear Crookshanks complaining loudly about his empty bowl. It was my birthday today. Severus always made me breakfast in bed for my birthday. I hummed in anticipation. It was going to be a marvelous day.


A marvelous day, a long day, a day full of longing. He asked me earlier at breakfast, while licking a spot of jam from my lips, how I wanted to celebrate. I pretended to think deeply, tapping my fingers against my lips, then said with a nod, "I'll think of something." He nodded as well, and vanished the plates and cups from our laps. "Well," he playfully huffed, "until you decide-specifically-what it is you desire, may I offer-this? And-this?" Gods, but how I loved his kisses.


Finally, it was evening. I herded him into the small sitting room and pushed him down into our lone couch. Draping myself over him, I swooped in for a quick kiss. I pushed myself up and asked, "Do you know what I want for my birthday?" He smiled that easy, lazy smile and simply cocked an eyebrow. I leaned down and whispered, "To be buried inside of you." A wave of desire rolled over his face. "Mermaid Pearls?" he breathed. "Mermaid Pearls," I agreed.

I slid off Severus and padded to the bookcase where the pearls lived among some of my favorite books. We kept them in the open, where we could see them on a daily basis. We loved finding excuses to swallow one, maybe two, and play. There was nothing like watching his already slender form start to slowly fill out, his breasts becoming plumper, his hair growing longer...then longer still. His body becoming a twin of mine...I shook my head and reached out for the jar. Turning around and gently shaking the pearls, I asked, "One or two?" He sat up and purred, "Oh, I think you know." So it would be two, then. After many days and nights exploring and trying different combinations, we discovered that two pearls kept my body as is, save for the surprise of a rather...gorgeous...cock
I took the jar into the bedroom and found a pretty cup to place them in. Lighting a candle, I called to Severus. It was time. I swallowed two and then offered the cup to him.

It was hours later.

I awoke slowly, coming up from the depths of another watery dream. Iridescent pearls, swirling hair, yielding fresh, granite thrusts, tongues and smooth skin swam around in my mind, leaving me breathless and wet. I was ready again. Severus's light still shown brightly against the sea, illuminating the rain tapping against our bedroom window. I sighed and snuggled deeper against him. Arms tightened around me and I fell, once again, into the beautiful abyss.

And NOW you have to participate in the next fest, because not only are you an amazing photographer, but one helluva storyteller!

Lovely, my dear!

Thank you Teddy! High praise coming from my first Fangirl Crush!!! *blushing* ❤️

Oh sweet, sweet Brailleypants! This is wonderful! Your photography is simply stunning; those photos are so elegant and full of perfect color! *swoon* I can easily picture them in Severus and Hermione's lighthouse home.

I am so tickled that you were inspired to jump into this story and make it yours! It's just amazing. I loved listening in on Hermione's thoughts and how delighted she was while watching Severus transform into that tall, lanky sexy girl. I'm wild about the fact that they have experimented with the pearls and found all their favorite ways to use them! Your prose is beautiful and I loved every word!

I was not specifically thinking about the Orkney Islands when making my thingy, but after reading [ profile] lenaa1987's breathtaking story later on, I knew that was where they had ended up. And I love so much that they use their magic to light the sea; I'm pretty sure that lil mermaid sensed that too and it was part of the reason she did what she did for them. (Mermaids can be so kinky, right?)

I am literally moved to tears of happiness and love and the power of creating and magical friendships. You are a wonder and I am am completely yours.

Oh Beloved Witch, thank you!!!!! Thank you for letting me run and play with your Mermaid's Pearls...I can't even tell you how much fun I had shopping for those pearls, then finding the perfect jar. I honestly had no intention of writing a thing, just doing the photos! Imagine my immense surprise when something in my head started to whisper and wouldn't let me go. THANK YOU for sharing your creativity and encouragement. Yes, mermaids are kinky and so damn intuitive!!! Our lucky Severus and Hermione's gift will bring years of joy ahead. I in turn am yours! 💜💜💜

Oh, love! This is so beautiful! I've been staring at the photos for ages now, trying to organise my thoughts. I don't think I can - everything in my mind is just going: "Oh!" and then upon another stunning sentence: "Oh, oh!"

Really, it's a really wonderful thing to be able to see you wetting your toes in the ocean with writing. You are wonderful at it. You brought me peace today, and I needed that. Thank you.

(PS: Agreed with Teddy!)

Thank you, my Lovely Lovely Lenaaaaaaa!! I'm thrilled you liked it!! So here's a question: I've written other things, but they have nothing to do with this fandom. I've actually been rewriting the same faerytale for near on 30 years. It's the story I wish I would have had as a young gay girl. Do you think it would be okay if I shared snippets of it here, with only my flist? ❤️

Date: 2016-09-20 02:30 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Oh I think it would be brilliant! A few friends have shared original things in the pAst - mostly short pieces but it is always extremely special to see what comes out of someone's mind. The intricate lines of their thoughts, how they weave them together... We would be lucky indeed! You can also post it to a filtered flist too - just in case it's extra personal.

(Also -- what you can do on gift fest sign up, if you are comfortable signing up, is mention that your preference is to write a shorter story. I have that on mine [that I can only submit a one shot] and that way, the mods will see that when matching you with someone and you won't need to worry about length.)

Date: 2016-09-21 02:45 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Okay then, I want to share!!! I'll be on a filtered flist for sure, because it would be very personal. Thank you my sweet friend, so much. I will get it ready. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Write!!!! You have such a storytellers soul! Please try your hand at it and consider entering for the SSHG-Giftfest!!!!!

Date: 2016-09-20 12:10 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Oh Toods! Thank you for the vote of confidence!! I don't really understand how the fest works. I read about it, but wasn't sure about some of the terminology, like "pinch hitting" (I think that's what I read)...I think it would be equal parts terrifying and thrilling! 💙

Date: 2016-09-20 12:26 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
So… First off, let me just reassure you that you would have GOBS of us volunteering to chat with you about plots or settings, possibly serving as beta readers as well to help polish up your fic.

Essentially, how the fest works is one big loop of gift giving. Everybody writes up their preferences and prompts, and then the mods will assign somebody's prompts to YOU. You make them a gift based on their prompts. In the meanwhile, someone else has been given YOUR prompts and is busy making YOU a gift. When the posting begins, everyone gives a gift and everyone receives a gift. (Pinch hitters are just in case someone can't finish their gift, and the giftee still needs someone to make their present.)

So… would you like to try your hand at writing a story, or coming up with beautiful arty photography that would be a gift for someone? If so, SIGN UP!

Date: 2016-09-20 12:54 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
You know what, I think that sounds like incredible fun....thank you for the explanation and encouragement!!! I'm going to go read more about it, and then take a deep breath, and...perhaps....JUMP!! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

I'm so thrilled you were inspired!

Think I can talk you into posting this or a link to your LJ on the sshg_hub?

Date: 2016-09-20 12:29 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Oh wow, thanks, yes!!! If there is a way for you to link/post, please do! My internet is so slow....this literally took an hour to post last night (uploading the photos is painfullllllllllllll!) Thanks Toby! 😊

Date: 2016-09-19 11:01 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]

This is utterly breathtaking. Beautiful story, and I love that you've linked back to [ profile] mywitch and [ profile] lenaa1987's works.

I'm very keen to read more of yours now...please keep going!

Thank you!! That means a lot! ❤️

Date: 2016-09-20 12:32 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Sure! I'll be happy to link it/rec it to your LJ. Make sure the post is not locked.

Also, do you post pics from your phone or do you use a laptop/computer? LJ gives you the option to resized your photos so the upload time is reduced.

Date: 2016-09-20 12:50 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Okay, I just unlocked it and set to Public.
I post from my iPad- I'll check out the resize option next time, thank you for the hint!

Date: 2016-09-20 12:53 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Or if you had an app that would allow you to resize your photos, and then post those, that could work too.

I will make a post later this evening.

Thanks, hon!
