FB3X Drabble Cascade #74 - word of the week is 'larceny'

Fantasy Boys XXX Drabble Cascade

Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #74 - This week's word of the week is 'larceny'.

Suitable for all.
The Way A Cascade Works

it's really very simple, be inspired by our word of the week and just write :).

To see this week's entries check out the list at the bottom of this post. We put it behind a cut so it doesn't clog up your scrolling.

A drabble is a work of 100 words exactly. Flash fiction is a work of up to 500 words. Both may be submitted to the cascade. So What Can You Write? The simple answer is - anything! Our work here on FB3X will be erotically themed. but feel free to take the inspiration any way you want to, fiction, fanfiction, non-fiction, meta, since variety is the spice of life!

To those struck by inspiration (and no you don't have to be a professional writer to join in, anyone can embrace their inner author):
  • Below you will find a chance to join in the cascade in the form of a linked list
    • Write a drabble/flash fiction inspired by the word of the week.
    • Post the fiction to your own blog, social media, or website 
    • Then insert a link into the linked list to that drabble/flash fiction for everyone to find (A hint of the genre of your drabble/flash fiction in the title of your post would be appreciated.), e.g. A Little Bit of Fun (PG, Science Fiction)
    • To encourage your friends to join in and hence cascade the fun, you can also add the list into your own post by copying the code.
  • OR you can just write us something in the comments :)
For folks who enjoy reading drabbles/flash fiction: you can then peruse the cascade to your heart's content :).

AND NOW - on to the fiction :)

 Caught (PG, m/m, Fantasy)
by Sophie Duncan

Author's Note
I went literal with the prompt today, blame my D&D years - I like thieves :)

When it came to pickpocketing, Hazel was the best. He’d learned from Master Wyrden, and his magic meant his marks barely even felt him lifting their possessions.

No idea how this one had detected him, here he was, shoved against a wall, wallet aloft, strong body holding him captive. Thing was, he was shivering - not from the cold. Embarrassing for a professional.

“Steal from me - why should I let you live?”

Honestly, Hazel didn’t know, but his magic was singing to the power in those angry, dark eyes. Shrugging, he dropped the wallet, pushing forward for a kiss.

 Breaking In (PG, m/m, Fantasy)

Don't know where this came from really, but the moment I read the prompt 'larceny' the mental image of a man climbing through a window jumped into my head :).

Jim climbed in through the window ready to drop his bag of tools on the floor and simply froze. There was a skull right in front of his face, just hanging in space.

"Larceny at its finest," the skull said and Jim fell off the windowsill with a loud crash.

He considered gibbering.

"Well, well, what do we have here?"

He turned to see a naked man in the doorway illuminated by a floating ball of light.

"Thief," the skull said and Jim cowered.

"Delightful," the man said, "some fun. I think I'll keep you for a while; you're pretty."

  1. Love both of these, but Breaking in was very interesting. Not sure what I would have done if I ran into a talking skull.

    1. Thanks - I was rather intrigued by the guard skull when read Tasha's fic took :)

    2. I know what I'd do - scream :D Thanks.

  2. Sophy's Caught - Alright I want a follow up where the owner of 'those angry, dark eyes' and the wallet, pulls out some money and takes Hazel to a rent a room for an hour place. Ample recompense for his trouble.

    Tasha's Breaking In - A watch-skull. That's scary. Does Jim eventually get let go? Does he want to stay? Or *shudders* Does the owner of the house need another skull for a different room?

    *grins* These are both very good.

    1. The rent-a-room-for-an-hour place might fight that their walls aren't strong enough given the way these two's magic is interacting ;P Hmm..

    2. Thank you :) I think he has other nefarious ideas about what to do with Jim and most of them require skin ;)
