Flash Fiction Friday – The Fog

Yesterday evening it was decided that my at-home RPG group, the one where I’m the GM, will begin a campaign of Blades in The Dark (created by the brilliant John Harper) our next session. I’m very excited to be running this system. I’ve been watching a fair few games of it played online and the mechanics seem awesome, and the aesthetics Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Fog

Flash Fiction Friday – Objectionable

Odd little piece tonight, inspired by Great Expectations. Without further ado: “You should know,” she said, a haughty look on her proud features as she overlooked the garden. “That I don’t have a heart.” “I know that,” I replied. “But why should I care?” She looked surprised then, the first genuine reaction I’d seen in her all night. She quickly smoothed Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Objectionable

Flash Fiction Friday- Shadow Wolves

For once, my Flash Fiction Friday piece wasn’t written today. Let’s get right to it: “Do not provoke me, little pup!” she spat, opening her fingers wide with a flourish of her wrist. Ana didn’t flinch, stood as tall as ever. They were face to face, just a foot or two apart, and neither would budge. In the corner of my eye Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday- Shadow Wolves

Flash Fiction Friday – The Other Dimension

I asked Twitter for writing prompts for tonight, and a good Twitter-friend, Signý suggested I write about me and my friends getting sucked into another dimension. So I did. Me and her, more specifically. Here we go: “Uh-oh,” I said when the rift in reality appeared directly adjecent to my coffee table. “That doesn’t look good at all.” The next Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Other Dimension

Flash Fiction Friday – Free Will

For today’s Flash Fiction Friday, I used Seventh Sanctum’s What-If-Inator. It’s a fun prompt generator, which draws on a lot of historical or literary figures, places and events to generate prompts. I’ve used it before for Flash Fiction Friday. Just once I think, for this piece about Joan of Arc. Today the prompt I picked was this: what if… the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Free Will

Flash Fiction Friday – The Door

I think I’ve had a FFF post called The Door before, but maybe not… feels like I have. Either way I can’t think of a better day for this one. Not sure where it came from, it just came. She had never opened the door before. It had always been there, she thought, ever since she could remember. Not large and Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Door

Flash Fiction Fraturday – Go Time

Last night was one of those nights when I started everything way too late, and thus by the time I got to Flash Fiction Friday on my to-do list I was far too tired to actually do it. Almost made the same mistake again today, but I caught myself in time (yay me!). Here’s a random little thing based on something Continue reading Flash Fiction Fraturday – Go Time

Flash Fiction Friday – The Storm

Happy weekend, everyone! Today I started trying out a new writing site. It’s called 4TheWords and basically you defeat monsters and gain magical treasure by writing. A bit silly, but pretty cute. I used it to defeat a moth-monster by writing this: “Mama?” The gentle voice lured Annie from the depths of sleep and when her eyes blinked open, she saw Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Storm

Flash Fiction Friday – Clarity

Normally I write my Flash Fiction piece on the Friday evening, just before posting it. Today I had some time to kill in the afternoon and typed it all up then, butI wasn’t connected to the internet at the time so I’m posting it now. It features, once again, my D&D character Seshmet: The gravel crunched underfoot as Seshmet stepped Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Clarity

Flash Fiction Friday – Shine

Hey guys. Super sleepy late-night flash fiction time. I did a different thing today and used a Random Word Generator for this piece. Picked the ten words option, and rerandomized them a few times until one combination popped out at me. Results are below: He’d never really been comfortable enough to express his artistics self. He’d fled from poetry into the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Shine
