FB3X Drabble Cascade #134 - word of the week is 'inability' (a chance to test and share your writing skills)

Fantasy Boys XXX Drabble Cascade

Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #134 - This week's word of the week is 'inability'.

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 42) (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.

I carried on the thought from last week with this one...


Unlike young Benedict rooted to the spot, Stephan knew he could step back, away from this memory. Yet he also knew he was being shown something intimate, being given a way into this contrary man's life, and he had to surrender himself to the magic, or the contact would fail.

Benedict's childhood terror made Stephan tremble, but he could not refuse it. Self slipping away, Stephan put his trust in Benedict.

"Your Highnesses," the servant accompanying Benedict's examiner greeted warmly, unaware of the examination under way, "this is your new tutor, Seeker Blane."

Blane smiled, but with his lips alone.

Observation Failure (PG, m/m, Fant/SciFi)
by Natasha Duncan-Drake

Author's Note
So it's a double drabble today because I couldn't get everything I wanted to say in 100 words :). I hope you enjoy it.

Miles had never let his inability to walk stop him: he was the strongest, easily lifting huge weights; his powers were the most honed, he could pick a lock with his mind from miles away; he was a master strategist.

Only in one thing was he a failure.

There was no way Luke, team Casanova and athlete extraordinaire, would be interested in a cripple like him. Luke respected him, but that was it.

"You know for a master observer, you're an idiot."

He looked up to see their team leader watching him.

"Really?" he asked, raising an eyebrow with mock nonchalance.

"I will give you this," Lil continued, "you're both idiots."

Miles schooled his features; he was never going to admit he had been caught mooning over a teammate.

"How so?"

"He," Lil pointed at Luke, "has been gaga for you," she pointed at him for good measure, "since you covered him in green slime on Nebula 4."

Miles blushed; he might have had a small temper tantrum that day.

"Don't be ridiculous."

"He likes that you don't take any of his shit."

Miles refused to believe it.

"Oh get in there and kiss him already," Lil said in exasperation.

  1. Flying- This does not look good for Benedict or his brother. Following logic the way to control the throne is through the heirs to that throne and that Benedict is where he is now, in exile, says this did not go well for his time with Blaine. I don’t know which hurts worse, living that or reliving it as Stephan is.

    Observation- Okay you got me at the sliming as attraction grabber. Doesn’t matter if you’ve got super powers, you’re still at the age of a pre-teen. Yes, go in and kiss him already.
