FB3X Drabble Cascade #149 - word of the week is 'constitute' (Just 100 words: can you do it?)

Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #149 - This week's word of the week is 'constitute'.

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 57) (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.

This week I took the word and used it in the drabble :)


Benedict opened his eyes in confusion: it had been so long since he had heard any feeling from his mother’s voice that he doubted his own swimming senses. Yet, she looked back at him, hand to his face, eyes brimming with tears.

He desperately wanted to reach out, but it hurt and he whined.

“Quickly,” his mother looked away, speaking to whoever was holding him, and then she led off down the corridor, her long skirts flying out behind her.

His holder was more urgent than gentle, but Benedict held onto them, understanding that they constituted his hope of escape.

Sacrifices (Fantasy, PG13, m/m)
by Natasha Duncan-Drake

Author's Note
So I went for another humorous one today - seems I am in that sort of mood. I hope you enjoy it :)


"By the gods, the things I do for you," Maran said and let Brin cut off a lock of his hair.

"I cannot thank you enough," Brin said as he placed the hair in the crucible on his workbench.

"Good," Maran growled. "Do you know how hard it is for an adult werewolf to get through a full moon without sex? You're lucky I didn't eat you."

"I know, I know," Brin said, "that's why you hair becomes such a powerful constituent in the potion. When I get top marks in the exam we'll have amazingly glorious sex, I promise."
