Braining is Hard

Standard

‘Ello Everyone!  So I have been here and there and everywhere when it comes up updates.  I have been sucked into the hole that is drabbles lately as you may have noticed.  I wrote a slightly longer very odd story I have also added to the side called The Nine Lives of Hermione Granger.  Though it is pretty much just a series of drabbles.  One other thing I did today you may notice is a broke the short story section up into sub-categories to make it easier to navigate.  The near future doesn’t look like I will reliably be able to post either so I have been posting when I can.  I hope none of you are mad at me I will do my best I promise!

Ballerina

Standard

Summary:  Sometimes life is better with a companion, no matter what the form. Prompt by @kyoki777 on Tumblr “No strings attached.”

Pairings: Luna/Tom

Tom watched the little ballerina dance in the store window.  It was a shop of curios and babbles, but the sign in the window read simply: Dancing Magical Doll, No Strings Attached.  Usually, such items held no interest for someone like him.  Dark objects were his forte, but something about the way the doll moved drew his eye.

One could plainly see her hinges and seams, but she moved more like an organic thing.  She looked old as well. She was not an item the store owner had made themselves.

Before he could think better of it, Tom pushed his way into the shop and put on the mask of a bemused shopper.

“How does it work?”  He asked as he motioned his head to the window.

The clerk looked at the window and gave Tom a warm smile.  “No one has been able to figure out. As long as light shines on her, she would continue to dance.”  The woman said with a shrug as she appraised Tom for a moment. “Have a sister with a birthday; she is sure to delight any little girl.”  She said in moving a bit forward.

Tom wondered if half the women he was around noticed they were flirting with him.

“How much?  I have someone who may find it interesting.”  He said as he thought he could take her apart to see how the charms worked.

She was soon tucked away in a small box after Tom talked the woman down from her original price.  He wouldn’t be surprised if the store took a loss on the ballerina as the girl was so eager to please the handsome Tom Riddle.

He couldn’t bring himself to take her apart, as every time he took her out of her box, she would grace him with a mysterious dance that seemed meant for him alone.  She became something of a friend as time passed. He would talk to her as he worked and talking helped him make his plans more clear to himself and later to his followers.

Somehow she became as vital to him as his wand, something he felt less himself without.  As days turned to weeks, and weeks to years he spent less and less time trying to figure out her mysteries and just enjoyed her silent companionship.

He had had her nearly ten years when something finally changed.  He had her dancing nearby his campfire as he looked over his map when the light of a full moon came out from behind the cloud cover.

He didn’t even look up at the sight of the moon and stars in his remote campsite; he cared little for the beauty of nature around him.

“Tom, you should look.  You’re missing it.” His ballerina said, and it just felt so natural that her dazed tone belonged to his companion he didn’t think for a moment about the fact she shouldn’t have a voice at all.

“I think, we’re lost.”  He said waving his hand to let her know there were more important things than whatever she was saying.

“One can’t be lost when they always know where to find themselves.”  She told him, and it slowly dawned on him that she was indeed talking.

Slowly he looked up from the map to find his ballerina kneeling next to him, her smile as beautiful as the painted lips of the doll.

But she wasn’t a doll any longer; she was a full sized girl.  She just looked up at him expectantly as if she had not just been a doll only moments before.

“You’re real.”  He told her as his eyes took in that every detail was the same. She was only more real now, more human; she was more herself.

“I’ve always been real Tom, but you’re missing the moon.” She told him as she looked back in the direction of the sky.

He looked as well and saw the moon seemed larger than life out in the remote wilderness.  His mind wasn’t taking the view in as he tried to figure out what this all meant. His ballerina was real, his only friend and the only one he trusted was a real woman.

“Will this last?”  He found himself asking; he didn’t know what he hoped for more.  On the one hand, having his ballerina be real all the time would be enjoyable, but real women would not like to be kept in boxes and hidden away from the world.  Did this mean he would have to share her?

“I am Luna.”  She said as if that was her answer.  “Things will work out the way they are supposed to.”  She added before resting her head on his knee.

Blushing Bride

Standard

Summary: It is Ginny’s wedding day and her ex and  soon to be brother stops in for a very heated visit.

Pairings: Tom/Ginny, Harry/Ginny

She glared at him as he dared to step into her private dressing room wearing an expensive suit and a sinful smirk.  The suit fit him like it was painted on and he wore it with the confidence and attitude of a man that knew how good he looked.  He probably could have been wearing a trash bag and would have looked good.

“What do you want Tom?”  She asked as she purposefully turned away from the view.  She didn’t need him getting into her head today of all days.

“I’ve come to check on my soon to be sister.”  He said in a tone that wasn’t fooling either of them.

“Right.”  She said as she walked over to the mirror to check herself over for the dozenth time.  She liked the old dress given to her by Lily Potter; it made her feel like she was genuinely welcome to the family.

It wasn’t anything fancy, but the cotton lace design was elegant in its simplicity. When Tom moved up behind her in the mirror and rested his hands on her hips, she froze in place.  All thoughts of his dress disappear with one whiff of his cologne.

“I wanted to give you one last chance Ginny.”  He said as he took one hand and purposefully pushed the cascade of red curls over her shoulder.  “Be mine.” He said, his tone demanding as he leaned in and nipped the place at the back of her neck that he knew drive her wild.

“You don’t love me, Tom, Harry does.”  She tried to pull away. His hands moved back to her hips to pull her back against his chest.

“I want you.”  He said as if that meant the same thing.  “The offer is fair my dear. It’s more than anything my brother could give you in a lifetime.”  He said with a sneer as he snaked a hand around to her stomach.

“We’ve talked about this.  I want more. I want a family, and I want love, and I love Harry.” She said hating herself for not struggling more to pull away from him, but he knew just how to touch her.

“You love me, Ginny.” He whispered her as his hand slipped into the top of the v neckline of her dress so he could fondle her breast.  “You are settling for him,”  Tom explained in a tone that said he thought she was being an idiot.  Then he pinched her nipple hard enough to make her gasp.

“Fuck you, Tom.”  She whimpered and pulled away and spun so she could look him in the eyes.  “You can’t come in here today and think I’m just going to leave your brother at the altar to be ke…”  He cut her off with his lips pressed roughly against hers.

He quickly pushed her back, so she was pressed against the mirror.  He trapped her there so she wouldn’t be able to get away again.

“That is exactly what I had in mind for today.”  He said darkly, as he wrapped his hand around her neck to keep her pinned.  “You know what will make me stop. If you want me to stop just say the word.”  He commanded, his eyes on fire as he drank in her expression.

“Fuck you, Tom.”  She said again pushing at his chest with both hands.

“Those aren’t the words.”  He said tauntingly right before he savaged her mouth.  This time his free hand moved down her form and searched out the hem of the dress.  “You don’t want me to stop, or you would make me.” He taunted against her lips.

“Tom please?”  She gasped because it felt so good but she knew what to say to make him stop.  She knew he would walk away with one simple word. Why didn’t she just say it?

“Don’t worry honey; I’m going to give you exactly what you want.”  He said in a criminal tone. His hand finally found the white lace knickers she had bought specially for today, and he ripped them from her body in a violent tug as if they meant nothing.

“This is wrong.  I hate you.” She growled even as she arched her body into his every touch.

His fingers easily slid inside of her after that, and she let out a mewing sound while his hand around her neck tightened just a little.

“And yet you are all wet my little slut.”  He taunted as first one, and then a second finger moved in and out of her core.

The hands grasped onto his shoulder as his thumb moved in circles around her clit and her knees threatened to give out.

“Say it, Ginny.”  He ordered in his dark and controlled tone that always sent shivers through her.  “Tell me whos slut you are. Pretty little whore all in white practically fucking herself against my hand.  Say it.” He hissed enjoying the way she gave her just the right mix of submission and defiance.

“Fuck you.”  She growled, and he tightened his hold on her neck again, it was getting a little hard to breathe but that was only making everything he did better.

“Not until you tell me what you are.”  He threatened, his thumb making her jerk as he brushed the pad back and forth over her clit.  “Come for me slut. I want you to come all over my hand.”

He said an grinned as she let out a little cry and her sex constricted around his digits.  She was still so responsive to his touch and his needs he wondered how she had stayed away for so long.

“Admit what you are, or I am going to make you choke on my cock.”  He said as he tortured her now oversensitive sex. “Tell me whos slut you are or I will put your mouth to better use.”

“Harry’s,”  She said with a wide grin on her face as she knew exactly how much that would piss him off.

He tightened his hold on her neck, and she could see his control crack just a little.  He shoved her roughly and ruined the soft curls of her hair as he yanked her head back.  “Last chance my little toy before I come in your mouth.”

“Fuck.  You.” She said glaring up him with all the fire she had.  He smirked as he opened his fly and made good on his word.


“I’ve known Ginny for just about as long as I’ve known my brother,”  Tom said with a raised as he looked around the room of the reception his usual charming mask firmly in place.  “I remember when she used to follow us around and got into just as much trouble as any of the boys. I remember when Harry told me he was taking her to prom and the sweet pretty much every step of their sweet romance since.  All I hope now is for them to continue with the kind of relationship they’ve had since that first day.” He finished, and everyone took a drink of champagne.

When he sat back next to his adoptive brother Tom watched the father of the bride stand to make his speech and made sure everyone was paying attention then so he could lean into the groom.

“It’s going to be the exact kind of relationship you’ve always had.”  He said as Harry looked over at him a bit oddly. “Play house with her all you like, but I’ve already given the blushing bride five orgasms today.  Let’s see how many you can get out of her tonight.”

I See You

Standard

Summary:  It is so very strange the places Tom shows up when Hermione is out of town.  Prompt by harrypotterfan4evr “Could you do a drabble where tom has been stalking hermione?”

Pairings: Hermione/Tom, Hermione/Ron

Warnings: Stalking

“What are you doing here?”  Hermione’s voice sounded a bit confused, but not exactly upset at the sight of Tom in the restaurant.

It seemed she always ran into him at the oddest places outside of school; at the grocery store, her laundromat, sometimes even during her morning run.  But to find him halfway across the country, away from school, it was just sort of unsettling.

“Visiting a friend.”  He replied casually, as he gave her his always charming smile.  “Is that the boyfriend?”  He asked motioning with his head towards the table she had just retreated.

“Maybe.”  She said sounding unsure as she looked back at Ronald Weasley dressed up in his best jacket and tie.  He looked uncomfortable, and the restaurant was a place he didn’t seem relaxed.

“Maybe?”  Tom asked raising an eyebrow at her, his careful expression of amusement with her statement strained as if he was holding back something more.  “Why so unsure?”

“I think he’s going to purpose.”  She said, and she really couldn’t read emotion in her voice, was it nerves or unease?  The moment he had talked talking she had excused herself to the bathroom.  She wasn’t sure how she felt, and now seeing Tom, it was all so weird.  “Sorry Tom, I was on my way to the loo.”  She said not wishing to be in this strange moment for any longer.

“Of course.”  He said and bowed her head as she headed back to his table with some pretty blond who looked a little amazed when he sat down with her.

When she came out of the bathroom, Tom was there again, this time out of sight of the rest of the restaurant.  “You should say no.”  He told her before she had a chance to question why he was there.

“What?”  She asked frowning up at him.

“When he asks you, you should say no and break up with him.  He is no good for you.”  He said as if she had asked his opinion.

Tom and she were bairly what she would call friends.  He was just a guy that was around a lot, a guy she did enjoy talking to about school, but nothing so close as would warrant his opinion about her love life.

“You don’t even know him.”  She said finding herself defensive of her high school boyfriend who decided to skip University.  They didn’t exactly have much in common anymore, but there was no way for this near stranger to know any of that.

“I’ve seen his type.” He said taking a step closer to her.  “He’s not smart enough for you.  You have ambitions, and he will be happy to live with his parents for the rest of his life.”  Tom explained as he reached out and brushed a curl from her face.

“You don’t know me either Tom.” She said feeling odd now about how close the man felt was appropriate to get to her.

“I see you, Hermione.  I think I may be the only person who knows you are all.”  He said as his fingers down her cheek.  “I’m the only one that could keep up with that mind of yours.”

Hermione frowned as she stepped back into the wall to try to get away from him.  She didn’t know what to say to any of this, and everything suddenly felt very wrong.  Tom was always around, but she had passed that off before as the fact they had similar habits, but now she started to catch things she had brushed off before.

It was in the way he always spoke to her like they had some shared secret like they had been good friends forever.  He always talked like he knew her better than he should.  And now he was standing in a back hallway of a restaurant half across the country, and she shook her head as her eyes went wide.

“Are you stalking me, Tom?  Did you follow me here?”  She asked as the horror of that realization hit her in full.  Her eyes darted around for a clear exit; she needed to get away from him, she needed the safety of other people.

“Of course I followed you, who knows what would have happened if I didn’t come,”  he said shaking his head as if this was simple fact, and he had been right to follow her.  “You might have even agreed to marry that imbecile.”

“You can’t do that Tom.”  She said slipping to the side as she worked to get out of his reach.  He stepped right back into her way as a frown crossed his face.  “You can’t just follow people around without their consent.”

“But I’ve already decided your mine.”  He said clearly annoyed with her reaction.  “We’ve had enough of this pretending; there is no one else out there good enough for me.”

“You don’t get to decide for me.”  She snapped as she was done trying to play cool.  “I get to decide who I’m good enough for and if I want..”  She started before he pressed forward cutting the rest of her words off with a crushing kiss.

She was too upset to enjoy even a second of his skills with his lips; she only knew she had not agreed to kiss him and tried to push him off.

“Hermione?”  Ron’s voice flooded her with relief.

“Pardon me,” Tom said turning to eye the other man.  “You’re bothering us.”  He said making a shooing motion.

“Yeah.  Right.”  Ron said, and she saw a deadness in his eyes as if his whole world had broken around him.

“Ron!”  She yelled trying to push past Tom as her boyfriend retreated from the situation, but he kept her from leaving the circle of his arms.

“Forget about him, Hermione.  I told you, you belong to me now.”
