FB3X Drabble Cascade #103 - word of the week is 'multiply' (a chance to test and share your writing skills)

Fantasy Boys XXX Drabble Cascade

Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #103 - This week's word of the week is 'multiply'.

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 11) (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.

Multiply sparked an idea of how things can escalate quickly, so this part is inspired by rather than using the word itself :)


The ‘not hearing’ felt strange, but compulsive. Stephan lost himself in the buzz, gradually focusing in on the spark at the heart of it.

“Spy!” Benedict’s snarl cut the peace and Stephan opened his eyes in time to see his host diving at him.

He cringed away, but a hand forced him back onto the bed and Benedict loomed angrily over him.

“What do you know?!” Benedict demanded, eyes blazing, cold power pushing into Stephan’s open mind.

“Noth-,” Stephan gasped, confused, frightened.

Sorcery with intensity Stephan had never experienced before took control. Stephan had no defence and his thoughts reeled.

Not Like That (PG, m/m, Fantasy)
by Natasha Duncan-Drake

Author's Note
There is always a catch when it comes to tricky sorcerers ;). Sorry it's late, I was fighting with Windows update yesterday and it was winning for most of the day.

"Oh dear, that didn't quite do what you expected, did it?"

Jax panicked. Touching the stone was supposed to destroy the evil sorcerer, not make two of him.

"Touch it again and there'll be three of me."

Running seemed like a good idea, but the door slammed shut.

"I get so bored all alone," the sorcerer said, "I have to lure nubile, unsuspecting heroes here every now and then."

"You killed a whole village!"

"No I didn't... I hired them. All an illusion. Now why don't you come over here and find out why two of me can be fun?"

  1. Things can indeed multiply quickly.

    1. That they can, and in this case Stephan is the catalyst, even if he doesn't know why!

    2. Sophie ---NOOOOoooooo. Don’t stop there! Oh the damage Benedict might have caused Stephen’s mind/magic/whatever it’s called. Again. Time for Stephen to move on, or try to. He’s jumped from the fire into another fire.

      Tasha ---*laughing* Whoever sold Jax the stone is probably in the sorcerer’s pay too. Hmmm, Then again why does the sorcerer need to lure nubile heroes; no good in bed?, he sends them away when he’s done with them which would leave the problem of they’d tell everyone about things and there’d be no nubile unsuspecting heroes frequenting his abode. Please tell me that he’s got a harem of no longer nubile heroes … um nope. He’s all alone…. Hmmm Unless the no longer nubile heroes prefer each other as bedmate in the harem and not the sorcerer.

    3. He just hasn't found the one yet - so he and the nubile heroes have a bit of fun and off they go and they're friends so they won't spill the beans. Of course you never know if Jax might be the one ;)

    4. That's the damnedest thing about drabbles, they make you stop in the most interesting of places - I promise, I know where next week is going!
