FB3X Drabble Cascade #84 - word of the week is 'Halloween' (a chance to test and share your writing skills)

Fantasy Boys XXX Drabble Cascade

Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #85 - This week's word of the week is 'Halloween and all things spooky'.

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 :)

Suitable for all.
 My Time of Year (PG, m/m, Paranormal)
by Sophie Duncan

Author's Note
I think the nights drawing in made me a little melancholy...


Halloween - Paul loved this time of year. He looked around at the golden leaves rustling in the dying light. He breathed in the damp air bitten with a new chill, and smiled as he wrapped his jacket collar round his chin.

This was his time of year; the barrier between the living and the dead unmade. Paul walked between crooked old stones, weaving a familiar path through unkempt grass. The wind whistled round the skeleton of the old church.

Paul laid his hand on one of those stones and closed his eyes.

“Hello, Jack.”

“Hello lover.”

Paul smiled sadly.

 Predictable (PG, m/m, Fantasy)
by Natasha Duncan-Drake

Author's Note
Adam Lambert's propensity for being a vampire every Halloween popped into my head and inspired me to create my own such character :). Hope you like it.

Brin loved Halloween. Horror and monsters were close to his heart.

"Brin, darling," Karen said, draping an arm around his shoulders; "again? Really?"

"Always," he replied with a grin, revealing his pearly fangs.

He was nothing if not predictable.

"The day Brin doesn't have pointy teeth and freaky eyes at Halloween, the world will end," Karl commented and stuck his tongue out, but Brin didn't miss the quick once over.

Of course he couldn't ever tell them why he always chose the same costume. They'd never believe it was the only time of year he ever got to be himself.
