FB3X Drabble Cascade #86 - word of the week is 'remember' (a chance to test and share your writing skills)

Fantasy Boys XXX Drabble Cascade

Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #86 - This week's word of the week is 'remember'.

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 :)

Not a Lie Exactly! (PG, m/m, Fantasy)

I think I've seen a few too many Lee Pace gifs on Tumblr!

Elidor slid the robe reverently over his shoulders. He was not expecting his meditative peace to be interrupted by the smashing of clogs on the forest floor. He turned as Eric dashed up to him, stopping almost chest to chest. His friend’s eyes were bright, wild even.

“Humans and elves, not done - I know, but you won’t remember me after the ceremony,” Eric announced, grabbing either side of Elidor’s head and dragging him into a decadent kiss.

Heart racing, body pulsing, Elidor finally stepped back.

“Who told you?”

“Your brother.”

Elidor smiled.

“I won’t remember for a few hours.”

The Fallen (PG, Fantasy)

I immediately thought of the date and remembering those who have been lost to war and given their lives in service and so I took the idea and ran with it in a fantasy setting. We will remember them.
Too many people had died in a war that no one had won. There were whole swathes of forest laid waste that would not bloom again for centuries; cities levelled where only the darkest magic now lived on.

Decades of fighting had pushed the human and fae races to unfathomable depths. Yet now it was over because of one half-breed child born to a human girl. The fae saw it as a sign and the humans were too tired to object to the treaty.

Kairn lay in his lover's arms and remembered the fallen as he prayed for the future.
