FB3X Drabble Cascade #123 - word of the week is 'barrier' (a chance to test and share your writing skills)

Fantasy Boys XXX Drabble Cascade

Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #123 - This week's word of the week is 'barrier'.

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 31) (PG13, 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.

'Barrier' slotted into my thought process for this next part - there is something in the way between Reynaulght and Stephan... 


Stephan bit his lip, admiring the fine lines of Reynaulght’s human form as he trailed said form staggering around Benedict’s kitchen.

After their kiss, Stephan had helped Reynaulght to his feet, but he didn’t dare touch now, because just looking was making him ache. Dragon did not take easily to human balance, it appeared, but Reynaulght was grinning intoxicatingly as he lurched from one handhold to another. Stephan followed, ready to catch, even if Reynaulght had a foot on him in height and a third more weight. 

His proud cock brushed his shirt. Stephan gasped. He hoped Benedict returned soon.

I hope you enjoy today's offering, it just popped into my head almost fully formed :).


Nail lifted his hand and placed it against the barrier as was required by the law. It was a stupid ritual and he hadn't wanted to come, but his mother had insisted. What shocked him completely was the little 'zzzzz' sound and finding himself on the floor because the obstruction suddenly wasn't there anymore.

When he glanced back everyone else still had their hands on something while they stared at him.


Nail stared up to find a handsome stranger in front of him.

"Do you know how long I've waited for you to be reincarnated?" the man asked, smiling.

  1. Flight of Fire-
    Reynaulght has got to be cute as he learns to walk in human form, lurching from handhold to handhold. How much is real of this staggering because Reynaulght has to be and probably is as hard and eager as Stephan is for Benedict to return. It’s a great distraction technique.

    And how frightening would that be unless or until your prior life’s memories came back to you.
    ‘Sure I’m your reincarnated lover…. says who?! And you say you’ve been waiting behind that wall for how long? Get a life.’

    1. That is one way to keep his mind of 'things' :)
