FB3X Drabble Cascade #130 - word of the week is 'privilege' (a chance to test and share your writing skills)

Fantasy Boys XXX Drabble Cascade

Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #130 - This week's word of the week is 'privilege'.

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 38) (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.

So, today I took the word of the week literally and it took me into Stephan's thoughts about Benedict and Reynaulght's generosity to him.


Stephan recognised the privilege he had been afforded being brought into the home of his unusual hosts. He also knew it was pain that had saved his life, Benedict’s pain. The human sorcerer had felt so powerful, so enraged when he had reprimanded Stephan for his almost-eavesdropping, but Stephan had now seen a part of him that made his heart ache. Stephan knew the pain of betrayal, fresh in his psyche, and he wanted to chase that same pain away from his saviour.

Not knowing if Benedict would accept him, Stephan crossed back to the door.

‘Come in,’ Reynaulght invited.

Rather Not (PG, Fantasy)
by Natasha Duncan-Drake

Author's Note
I had so many ideas for this one, but this is the one I ran with - hope you all enjoy it :)


To be remembered was a privilege given to only an honoured few. However, awaiting his fate in the little room that was about to be flooded, Han would rather had been allowed to live than be remembered as a name on a wall.


He turned towards the sound and was amazed to see an opening in the wall. A man not much older than him was beckoning. Han didn't need telling twice, as water began to flow from the pipes, he ran for it.

"Welcome to the hallowed remembered," his new friend said, slamming the hidden door and grinning.

  1. Flight – Stephan is going to approach Benedict and ask to be let into their relationship? And yet it is Reynaulght who is inviting him back into the room. Which in a way makes sense and Stephan had better be properly sensitive, needing to reassure Benedict that he’s not trying to take his dragon away as reinforcement to Reynaulght’s assurances. This is not as straight forward as I thought it was going to be.

    Rather Not – There’s got to be collusion with the priests or whoever, because bodies don’t dissolve in water. Unless he really did die and this is a collection of his soul, otherwise there are a few honored people who are supposed to be dead, who need feeding and who made the hidden door?

    1. It's about to take another left turn too :)
