FB3X Drabble Cascade #183 - word of the week is 'entree' (Just 100 words: can you do it?)



Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #183 - This week's word of the week is 'entree'.

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 86) (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 might have been a bit of a strange one, since most of us think of entree as part of a meal, but it also means the right to enter or join.

Neither Reynaulght, nor Benedict said anything, no words of comfort, no touches, just the space to express himself, so Stephan continued.

“I’d given Arne his entree, and he took it. He started by helping me nurse old Pa Griffins through his usual Winter attacks. Moved in with the old man, said he’d keep an eye on him so that I wasn’t up every night dealing with the night fevers.

It wasn’t until Spring he suggested anything. Even then it was only a walk in the hills to get out of the village. He was handsome and kind. I liked him.”

Dinner (Fant, m/m, PG)
by Natasha Duncan-Drake








Author's Note
A double drabble today, because I just couldn't fit it in 100 words. I'm all about vampires at the moment and this prompt just kind of screamed for them :). Hope you enjoy.

David swallowed hard as yet another fabulously dressed person looked him over. He needed the money, desperately, but offering himself up to the vampire population felt like more and more of a bad idea.

"So young," said one.

"Ripe for the picking," said another.

He wanted to run.

"Hello."

When someone actually addressed him directly he was shocked. He turned to see the most gorgeous man he had ever met in his life.

"H...hello."

The man smiled.

"Would you do me the honour of joining me for dinner?"

David was so entranced he just nodded.

"Oh Count," a very loud woman said, "you always find the pretty ones before me."

"I still remember the hunt," the Count replied and flashed a fang as he smiled.

The woman laughed nervously and left quickly. A thrill ran up David's spine.

"You must excuse my brethren for their behaviour," the Count said offering David his arm; "with age comes eccentricity."

David slipped his hand around the vampire's elbow. His legs almost gave way as tingling ran from his head to his toes.

"I thought so," the Count said, "gifted too. I think we shall be great friends."

David didn't know what that meant.
