FB3X Drabble Cascade #105 - word of the week is 'white' (a chance to test and share your writing skills)

Fantasy Boys XXX Drabble Cascade

Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #105 - This week's word of the week is 'white'.

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 13) (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.

White brought thoughts of heat and the white hot surface of metal to mind, so this is where my brain went for this week's part.


White hot pain seared into Stephan’s brain, sorcery at its worst, but the touch of souls just beyond it made him sob his need for them. He had always been alone, his village isolated enough that he could learn his magic, but that same protection meaning he had felt no other power so close before.

The contact could not be sustained, from any side: Stephan sank back into his own skin, gasping and hurting. Sight blurred, he could hear groaning close by. Benedict no longer held him. Stephan closed his eyes, curled over himself and shuddered away the sudden loss.

 (White-out PG, m/m, Fantasy)

I saw white and thought snow :) Maybe it's because it's so damn cold outside.

The guide had called it a white-out, Hero called it a nightmare. Every extremity on his body was frozen and, what seemed like hours ago, there had been a roar from somewhere in the blizzard, a scream and the guide rope had gone slack. He had been wandering blind since.

"You're new," a voice said inside his head and made him fall over his own feet. "Fragile too."

He couldn't speak as something large and furry leaned over him.

It took a couple of blinks before he saw an angelic male's face among the fur.

"Help?" Hero asked and fainted.
