FB3X Drabble Cascade #102 - word of the week is 'fit' (a chance to test and share your writing skills)

Fantasy Boys XXX Drabble Cascade

Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #102 - This week's word of the week is 'fit'.

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 10) (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.

'Fit' was a fairly obvious word for me, since Stephan is currently recovering from Arne's betrayal, so his fitness is certainly not what it should be. Still, I have to admit, although it starts this scene, it isn't the main focus, so maybe I cheated a bit...


Alone, stomach sidelined a moment, Stephan looked nervously round a modest, earthen-floored room, ears beginning to pick up the sound of Benedict’s muffled voice from outside.

“...can’t send him away, he’s not fit.”

Silence followed - one that made Stephan’s ears ring like they should be hearing something.

“Yes, it’s a risk, but the dwarves never gave up on us, did they?”

Stephan rubbed the bridge of his nose as it hummed in time with his ears.

“Exactly - won’t come looking till Spring, anyway.”

Tingle running down his spine, Stephan closed his eyes and explored the strange ‘not hearing’.

Misdirection (PG, Fantasy)
by Natasha Duncan-Drake

Author's Note

Rin just stared.

"There is no way that is going to fit," he said.

"Of course it will fit," Max said; "we just have to make preparations. Some lubrication and everything will be fine."


"Look, I read all about it," Max insisted. "It's supposed to be tight, especially the first time, but we just have to work it in carefully and everything will be fine."

"That is way bigger than where it's going."

"That's what magic is for."

"I'm not wasting magic just so you can fit a wheel too big for your motorbike," Rin said and stormed off.

  1. Misdirection was the perfect title. The entire piece made you think one thing when it was something else. Loved both of them this week.

    1. I liked the misdirection as well, made me laugh.

    2. Thank you :) That's just what I was going for.

  2. Sophie - Stephen’s magic is returning. Dragon tongue? He can hear dragon thoughts? Spring… that’s 2 Tuesday’s from now. 200 words of recovery for Stephen, unless the snow overstays its time.

    Tasha - Perfect title. Why do I perceive a bit of real life shining through with that problem with a wheel for the motorbike? So bad. *grins*
