birthstone for october


My Everything

So for some reason, my cold dead heart felt kind of sappy tonight and this little valentines piece was born. Always use a condom when thinking of your OTP, or smushy crap like this happens.

SUMMARY: Killian is surprised at what awaits him when he gets home. Set during S6.

Killian made his way across the darkening front lawn of their home and jogged up the steps, tucking the large bouquet of roses into his left elbow so he could fish his key from out of his pocket.

Emma had insisted he not make a fuss today; she was adamant she didn’t want any surprises or grand gestures. It had him feeling slightly disheartened that she wouldn’t want him to shower her with affection on a day made for love, but he’d kept to his promise… well, almost. He’d still bought the finest roses Mo had to offer, and had a velvet box containing a pair of silver and opal earrings. He’d spotted Emma glancing at them as they walked around town one day and knew he wanted to get them for her. He couldn’t let the day go by without giving her anything.

He wasn’t that type of man.

He found it odd that there was barely any light coming from inside. The sun had only just set and it was far too early for Emma to be in bed already.

He got the front door opened and stepped inside cautiously, wondering why it was so dark.

The first thing he saw was the scattered rose petals that decorated the floor and the stairs. The second thing he became aware of was the warm orange glow radiating from various candles from within the living area.

The third and final sight he glanced upon was Emma, standing by the roaring fireplace, wringing her hands together as she smiled at him nervously.

“Emma? What’s all this?” He asked, surprised at the set up before him.

She smiled and held her hand out, gesturing for him to join her.

Visual guide to the Five Main Types of Opal

White or light opal: Translucent to semitranslucent, with play-of-color against a white or light gray background color.

Black opal: Translucent to opaque, with play-of-color against a black or other dark background.

Fire opal: Transparent to translucent, with brown, yellow, orange, or red bodycolor. This material—which often doesn’t show play-of-color—is also known as “Mexican opal.”

Boulder opal: Translucent to opaque, with play-of-color against a light to dark background. Fragments of the surrounding rock, called matrix, become part of the finished gem.

Crystal or water opal: Transparent to semitransparent, with a clear background. This type shows exceptional play-of-color.
