Author's Notes: I took several of your suggestions here, and tried to roll them together in my first attempt at experimental fic. I'll hope you'll forgive me if it's not what you're used to, but I had quite a lot of fun writing it! I hope you'll also forgive my use of switching names, though I tried to keep it minimal. Not switching at *all* went against everything I was taught in school, but most of the switching here has to do with who's speaking and perspective and internal struggles, so I hope you'll forgive me that. I also MUST thank my beta, 'P', forr without her the smut would be nearly non-existent.
Artist's Notes: I hope the illustration keeps the surreal feeling from the story. I don't often give art and fic together, but I was so pleased with this story I couldn't resist illustrating it, too!

Harry Potter lives an idyllic, happy-ever-after life... )
