FB3X Drabble Cascade #91 - word of the week is 'gear' (a chance to test and share your writing skills)

Fantasy Boys XXX Drabble Cascade

Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #91 - This week's word of the week is 'gear'.

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 Done Yet! (PG13, m/m, Fantasy)
by Sophie Duncan

Author's Note
I'm in the land of sayings this week, namely, 'taking it up a gear' :).


Hari dosed in a post coital glow, the warmth of the fire and the reminders of Daniel’s magic still rippling up and down his body slowly easing him into full sleep. When Daniel’s fingers stroked down his spine, he murmured his approval, smiling to himself, but was far too content to really respond.

It was when his lover’s touch reached the small of his back things changed. Magic shot out from the spot, possessing his body and taking him from languid to passionately alert in a heartbeat.

Hari swore. Then he moaned. Daniel chuckled.

“Let’s take things up a gear.”

 Testing (PG, m/m, Fantasy)

The first thing that jumped into my head was Metal Gear Solid that led my brain to Gundam and big robots, hence this :).

"Wow," Frankie said as he looked up at the huge mechanoid, "that is some gear."

"Climb in," Jack said and grinned.

"But I'm not signed off."

"You will be if you pass this."

Frankie blinked.

"This is the test?"

Jack nodded.

"And consider this your incentive," Jack said, leaning forward and kissing him. "Pass and I have a zero grav suite booked to celebrate."

Frankie had never been gladder he had rigged the draw to get Jack as his instructor. Their relationship hadn't remained strictly professional for more than a week.

"What if I fail?" he asked, suddenly nervous.

  1. Interesting, both of them. Just how did they take it up a gear and how much room is in a grav suit?

  2. Post coital glows are sacred. Daniel should have waited and woken Hari later but then I don't see Hari complaining. *grins*

    Zero grav suite to celebrate if Frankie passes. So no pressure to this test. None at all. Yoda would be proud of Jack.

    1. Daniel is rather impatient as a lover - but I'm sure Hari is more than a match for him :)
