FB3X Drabble Cascade #177 - word of the week is 'yon' (Just 100 words: can you do it?)

Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #177 - This week's word of the week is 'yon'.

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 81) (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, yon means that - I kinda cheated and used 'that' quite a lot! ;P


“You made these while…?” Stephan did not finish his thought as Benedict placed the bangles into his hands and the flow of magic took him back into his companion’s memories for a moment.

“You are the Lost Prince.”

Reynaulght snorted.

‘Blane still peddles that?’

Stephan was more interested in Benedict, though, because he could see the pain of that in the other man’s eyes. He wanted to reach out, hug him, but he knew now that it would not be welcomed. Instead, he offered gratitude.

“Thank you,” he took the bangles close to his chest. “You are a talented smith.”

Destiny (fantasy, m/m, PG)

Yay, I remember to do one this week and to make up for missing so many it's a tripple drabble = 300 words. I do hope you enjoy it :)


'Hither and yon'; it was a phrase Jack remembered his great grandmother using a lot. It also seemed to fit what he was watching.
The rest of the family were chasing each other all over wide open plain in full wolf form. All he could do was sit and watch. They didn't mean to leave him out, but he was the only non-wolf of the lot. No one had ever been able to explain why - werewolves were supposed to breed true.
"A magnificent pack."
Jack turned quickly to find he was no longer alone on the hill. The man behind him was tall, with dark skin and pale hair, but what caught Jack's attention the most was his deep amber eyes. They made something flutter in his stomach.
"Who are you?"
"I am Imari and I have travelled half the world to find you."
"Can you not feel it?"
Jack could, and he stood up, drawn to the other man. Something was stirring inside of him, something wild and powerful. Imari held up his hand and Jack reached out to touch. It was like ice water and fire in his veins as magic smashed through him. Lightning shot out of the clear sky, striking their joined fingers, but Jack barely felt it.
All he could do was stare into Imari's beautiful eyes.
"Together we bring power."
The words materialised in his mind.
"Together," he agreed. "Together we bring peace."
"Peace," Imari replied.
In those amber eyes it was as if Jack could see eternity; his destiny unfolding. He did not question, did not argue, he knew. Two halves of a whole, he looked into Imari's soul and Imari looked back.

For the first time he felt the surge of change in his body as he began to shift.

  1. Sophie – ‘Blane still peddles that’ and … why is he? So many reasons possible for that.
    The reason for the bangles could have more purpose than I’d assumed…. You sneaky author you.

    Tasha – Been reading a lot of werewolf fic lately. This fit my reading mood perfectly.

    1. 'sneaky' - I'll take that as a compliment :)

  2. Sneaky sounds like a compliment to me! ~grin~ These are great scenes. I envy Jack the compelling destiny.
