Flash Fiction Friday

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 100 word flash fictions.

This weeks prompts:

Sentiment | Immortal | Lot

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.

Post your drabbles in the comments section of this post. 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 ;)

Flash Fiction Friday #9

Woops! I completely forgot to post last Friday, so yes, we’ve skipped a week. I blame my entire lack of efficient time management with my twikinkfest fics ;) There has been some flailing going on this last week O.O This post is late as well because I’ve spent today madly preparing my final prompt fill for posting.

I’m changing the format a little. The same people keep coming back week after week to fill the comments section of these posts with fantastic drabbles, and I love hosting them, but as far as choosing a winner every week… It’s hard, man! So I’m going to remove the contest part of Flash Fiction Friday. Hopefully you’ll all still keep coming back :)

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 (henceforth to be simply a wee… fest-type thingy. Or something).

The final winner:

The winning drabble:

“I don’t know how to put this gently, Carlisle….”

This was so awkward.

My divorce seemed downright pleasant in comparison.

He’d moved here just two weeks before his youngest son had pulled this crap with my baby girl.

What’s worse is the little menace’s father kept laughing.

For Pete’s sake, I thought I’d have a 30 year wait before I had to deal with this stuff.

I looked to where the kids were playing; the two of them had this same look…this pure happiness.

I sigh, “Just tell him to keep his lips to himself for at least 10 years”.

This weeks prompts:

Fool | Curing | Say

Flash Fiction Friday (Saturday) #8

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:

The winning drabble:

His melancholy music and mood greet me long before he does; the notes all sharp chords contrasting with gentle strumming.

Something about that blatant contradiction unsettles me, layering tension over nervous curiosity. But this a feeling my body and heart know intimately.

I walk the line between love and hate, happiness and sadness, generosity and selfishness; the balance so easily tipping to one side or another.

Until I hear his song, calling out my name, grounding me firmly to his side of the tracks.

It gives me no choice really. All questions lead directly to him.

He is the answer.

Liability | Gently | Above

Last weeks winner:

The winning drabble:

The first time I saw him was completely orchestrated on his part.  As had become my habit, I was walking with my head held down and my collar reaching up.

“Slow down,” he called out, “my legs are shorter than yours.”

Something in his tone made me pay attention, even though I knew it wasn’t plausible anyone would speak to me.

Surreptitiously, my eyes lifted ever so sparingly in his direction before widening involuntarily. It was apparent that unless he was talking to himself, I remained the only option in the nearby vicinity.

That was the day I stopped hiding.

This weeks prompts:

Last weeks winner:

Flash Fiction Friday Winners Banner

The winning drabble (because it’s fun and sexy and just bloody brilliant):

My mouth is literally salivating at the sight of them, heavy and hairless, and hanging so very low they rhythmically sway back and forth with the slightest of movements.

The feel of them in my hand, solid yet soft, causes my breath to hitch and my pulse to scatter. Experimentally, I tug on them sharply, eliciting an animalistic moan from deep within his throat.

When I can no longer bear simply imagining how the wrinkled skin will feel in my mouth, or how his earthy taste will settle on my tongue, I involuntarily lick my lips in anticipation.

Fucking perfection.

Last weeks winner:

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.
