FB3X Drabble Cascade #94 - word of the week is 'produce' (a chance to test and share your writing skills)

Fantasy Boys XXX Drabble Cascade


Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #94 - This week's word of the week is 'produce'.

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 02 (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.

This week, produce fitted in with the story outline in my head in that I could use it as a synonym for 'make'.

Strong arms lifted him off the snow. Stephan was too cold to fight, but the hold produced a small whine of fear. His bearer ignored it, hauling him up over one shoulder, leaving Stephan peering at the impacted snow of this stranger’s footsteps.

A little survival instinct remained within Stephan’s frozen psyche. Weak, his magic flowed slowly as he called it to his will. Yet, before he could form any defence, a hand smacked his arse - with it, a shot of power lanced down his spine. Stephan’s head spun, he groaned, he sagged - beaten, but beaten by magic!

Cooperation (PG, gen, Fantasy)

Vampires just sprang to mind :)

"They prosper?" Karl asked as he surveyed the report.

"Surprisingly so," his lieutenant replied. "We should be able to start harvesting soon."

"Never use that term," he said.

"But they are just produce." The man sounded genuinely confused.

"They are human beings," Karl said, voice rising.

He stood, eyes flashing red and showing just a hint of long fang.

"All will remember that. We are not animals and we will not fall into being monsters. When the settlers are ready we will invite them as guests, am I understood?"

His lieutenant looked shocked.

"Yes, My King," was the subdued response.

  1. Sophie, you hit a kink of mine with this. Can't wait to see where this is going.

    Tasha can one go wrong with vampires especially with power in the hands of a benevolent one?
