FB3X Drabble Cascade #184 - word of the week is 'apple' (Just 100 words: can you do it?)

Welcome to FB3X Drabble Cascade #184 - This week's word of the week is 'apple'.

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 87) (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.

Today, apple for me inspired the thoughts of forbidden fruit, warnings and ignoring warnings.


“I should have known!” the anger caught Stephan by surprise, but he couldn’t stop it. “I was stupid. I should have remembered Old Sasha’s warnings. She told me they’d find a way to get to me when I was vulnerable - a lover, she told me and I forgot.”

Stephan sagged, the betrayal killing his ire. 

“When we made love, I couldn’t control my magic. He said he wasn’t afraid.”

“Bastard!” Benedict breathed quiet vehemence.

Stephan looked up at him: they understood one another.

“That last time, I shared magic with him. He used it to distract me. Then he attacked.”

Sorry we're late this week - it's been one of those weeks :). Hope you enjoy my drabble today - it's a little bit naughty ;).


Avan bit into the slice of apple as it was offered, juice dripping down his chin. He was helpless, chained, naked, to the large wooden scaffold with more than simple iron, as the party hummed around him.

All part of the game.

He had let himself be caught in their trap; he would play along, give the mortals the illicit sex they desired. Humans were strange about such pleasures. They clearly enjoyed them, but seemed afraid as well.

It amused Avan.

Soon one of them would work up the courage to properly touch him; then the fun would really start.

  1. Sophie - Stephen was lucky to escape but the betrayal… Benedict is on his side, add one dragon and things could get very interesting indeed but is there revenge in the future?
    Tasha – Am assuming that Avan is a demon? It’s nice they’re feeding him apple slices, must be being done carefully . “…helpless, chained, naked,” can we infer erect too? The mortals’ sexual turn ons aren’t what Avan’s are. Hmmm. Now what is Avan’s idea of ‘fun’?

    1. They are going to get interesting, yes - as for revenge, I am saying nothing :)
