Flash Fiction Friday #5

I am aware that it’s likely not Friday where you are. It is where I am. :p

Once a week I scour weheartit for interesting pics and hit watchout4snakes for random words and post them as prompts for a quickie drabble contest.

Last weeks winner:

Flash Fiction Friday Winners Banner 

The winning drabble:

Will looked at the tree and remembered how, years ago, he climbed up, sat there and watched the sun set. He remembered it turned orange and red like autumn leaves and sank through the sky until it hid behind the steep, pointed roof of his step-father’s house.

He thought the tree would be smaller. It loomed up, towered above him. The lowest branch was twelve feet off the ground. He wondered how he managed to climb that high. The leather belt snapped in his mind. Will felt it land across his face; the sharp sting, the salty tears and he knew.

This weeks prompts:

Collecting | Hanging | Entirely

Prompts can be interpreted in any way you like. You can use as many or as few as you like. The inspiration you take from them can be as vague or as specific as you need it to be. You can write fanfic of whatever fandom you like or you can write original fic. You can use any pairing, any genre, anything. Be as fluffy or as squicky or as taboo as you like. Crossover, collaborate, whatever, but no more than two entries per week per author.

Your drabble must be exactly 100 words. No more. No less.

You’ve got until Thursday (NZ time, so Wednesday for most of you) to post your drabbles so I can pick a winner and write the next Flash Fiction Friday post.

I choose a winner on a fickle whim and award a pretty banner and an eternal place on the Flash Fiction Friday Winners Link List.

Post your drabbles in the comments section of this post to be eligible. You can also post wherever else you like. Links to here are always awesome :) A very brief header with warnings or ratings if applicable would be appreciated. I’ll read anything, but not everyone is as foolhardy ;)

Next week I’ll post the winner and a new set of prompts!


Flash Fiction Friday #4

I am aware that it’s likely not Friday where you are. It is where I am. :p

The winning drabble:

Every time she raises her hand my pants get a little tighter. That sexy obscure tattoo etched onto her ivory skin unhinges me a little more every day. What’s worse is that crimson smirk, like she knows.

That I would do anything to be inside her.

Sixth period bio never lasted so long, I thought, as I wiped my forehead. I’m proud of myself for not watching her ass as it left my class. Imagining that the extra sway is for me.
But it’s wrong because even though I’m her teacher, I doubt she’d want to learn anatomy my way.

This weeks prompts (feeling a bit silly this morning):

freedom | warp | common

The winning drabble:

He tells me he’s looking for a book about kittens. I quirk an eyebrow in response just before hearing him mumble something under his breath. It sounds suspiciously like forget it and whatever.

“How very rude,”  I huff indignantly. “The kittens only caught me by surprise,” I further explain, turning my back to him. Inexplicably, my feelings are bruised.

I wouldn’t have batted an eyelash at puppies or even a hamster. Questions swim around my head like fish in a tank, but my pride prevents me from giving voice to them.

His hand is as soft as his whispered apology.

This weeks prompts (bit of a black and white theme this week):

Last weeks winner:

Flash Fiction Friday Winners Banner#1

bookjunkie1975, for a sentence structure I can totally identify with, and for letting me see the scene (though that could be a well chosen prompt, yeah?) It’s complete luck that the banner fits your drabble, by the way…

The winning drabble:

Riley thinks that if he could he would like to paint Mike’s body the way he paints these walls; cover it with something beautiful, something bold. He would leave his mark over and over again so that everyone would know and there’d be no more secrets and maybe then Mike would slide his fingers through Riley’s, lean his head against his shoulder, press his lips to Riley’s jaw, in full view of everyone and Riley could stop walking always two paces behind. Riley wonders what a world full of colour would feel like. But for now he has these walls.

I was well chuffed with the excellent turn out last week. Most comments on a single post on my blog ever! SQUEE! Yes, I’m a sad wee monkey. Okay, on to this weeks thingy.

Flash Fiction Friday

Yes, I am aware that it’s likely not Friday where you are right now. It is where I am. So there :p

New Thingy! I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, hopefully it’s not a big fat flop ;) Drabbles are always great for writing blocks and stalls and a fantastic way of keeping those writing muscles (the ones that dwell in your backside and in your brain) well oiled and shit.

About that Carlward contest…

This contest needs more entries! I want more Edward/Carlisle to read!

They are still accepting entries until 25th February, that’s ten days, heaps of time to get something in!

You know, if you’re not like me and obsess over every minute detail to the point of time-wasting insanity.

If you are like me, though, you have a bunch of half finished, almost finished, or just needs edits fics on your hard drive. I’m going half-finished fic diving tonight, and I’m going to attempt to get something into the contest.

Because we need more Edward & Carlisle :D

The contest profile on FFn. Deadline is 25th February. 2k minimum.


The CarlWard Contest

(oops, yes, I’m blogging again, sue me, just don’t email or tweet me at vampireisthenewblack, cos I’m still not checking them till Feb)

I never thought I’d see it, to be honest. My favourite pairing, Edward/Carlisle, has an entire contest devoted to it! Apparently it’s Capricorn75’s favourite, too (love, we should have been talking a long time ago!), and she, like me, despairs at the lack of quality E/C out there, so she’s organised this contest.

I’m very excited.

The CarlWard Contest on FFn

2-12k, anon, deadline Feb 25.

Of course I’m hoping to see lots of vamp E/C, canon, in character, wink wink, nudge nudge, eternally grateful ;)
