FB3X Drabblerotic A to Z 2015 - U is for Ultramarine - (fiction)

This post contains adult themes.
Fantasy Boys XXX is joining in the The Blogging From A to Z April Challenge with Drabblerotic 2014

where will be posting a drabble* every weekday and Saturday in April brought to you by the letters A-Z, although this isn't Sesame Street, so expect a little adult spice in our alphabet soup. ;) Our theme this year is colour.

PLUS - if you'd like to add your own drabble, then please do, just put it in the comments, or post on your own blog and link in to the list at the bottom of the post :).

*'So, what is a drabble anyway?' we hear some of you ask. And the answer is, a drabble is a piece of prose of (exactly) 100 words. 

So, without further ado, onto today's drabble...



U is for Ultramarine

Author's Note

When I was reading about Ultramarine I was struck by how special it was because of how costly it was to make, so that's the theme I ran with, giving it a magical twist. Thank you for reading.

Has to Be

by Natasha Duncan-Drake

He knew the pigment was expensive, that it came from very far away, but the dragon's scales had to be ultramarine. Nothing else was rich enough, not even gold.

Every sorcerer made their own avatar, eventually giving it part of their own life. It had to be perfect. The image was there in his mind, had been since he was a small child, and now he had to bring it into reality. He would be indebted to Lord Rahl for this, probably until the day he died, but he had no choice.

His dragon would be lapis blue and alive.

  1. Lapis blue is such a striking color.

  2. Not a bad investment on Lord Rahl's part. He bought himself a lifetime ownership of a sorcerer. Having someone with a dragon they can call can be a strategic advantage, too.
