FB3X Drabble Cascade #93 - word of the week is 'new' (a chance to test and share your writing skills) & A Happy New Year on its way!

Fantasy Boys XXX Drabble Cascade


Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #93 - This week's word of the week is 'new' and the coming New Year.

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 :)

Flight of Fire Part 01 (PG, m/m, Fantasy)
by Sophie Duncan








Author's Note
I'm trying to do something a little different this year. For those of you who don't know, unless it's a week inspired by a holiday, or memorable occasion, our word of the week is picked by opening up a dictionary to a random location, waving a finger about without looking at the page and pointing it to a word, i.e. it's chance. So, this year, rather than standalone drabbles, I am going to try writing a coherent story, Flight of Fire, in 100 word episodes, each one inspired by the word of the week. I have a vague outline for characters and direction of Flight of Fire, but specifics will be decided by the word of the week. So, here goes :)

The snow blanketed everything in white, making it new, but it was killing Stephan. He was past the pain in his hands and feet, he felt nothing now, only the need to keep moving. Even that was denied to him when the drift caught his boot and he pitched forward. The snow simultaneously cushioned and froze his fall. Stephan hadn’t the energy to get up: ‘the sorcerous runt’ was going to die, just like they wanted.

Stephan closed his eyes against the brightness: time to stop running. Yet, as he let the world go, a shadow fell across his face.

Marc did not really understand what was happening. This was all so new to him. All he could do was watch as man after man stood, pulling off restrictive garments, and starting to dance. The music was wild, the magic filling the hall even more so.

It was mid winter's eve and the male sorcerers welcomed the turn of the year in one great hall, while the female sorcerers did the same in the other. Tomorrow they would celebrate together.

Marc was the last to stand and then other arms were swinging him around and he surrendered to the dance.

  1. Flight or Fire is going to be interesting to see how the word of the week affects the story. Neat idea, Sophie.

    1. Thanks - I hope I can do the story and the inspiration words justice at the same time :)

  2. Sophie - this'll be challenging. This is a promising start. Can't wait to see where you'll take this.
    Tasha - I was just watching the spinning of someone in the manner of the Sufi Dervish sect. This strongly reminded of that.

    1. It's going to be fun - I have a feeling that some weeks I'll be using the words directly in the 'episode' and in others, it'll be more of an inspiration :)
