Flash Fiction Friday – Terracotta on White

I’ve been away this weekend, and since the internet connection up there is a bit dodgy, I decided to just type up a flash fiction piece but not post it until I got back home tonight. I typed up a blog post, too, detailing a problem I was having with a recent story idea, which connects to the piece below. Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Terracotta on White

Flash Fiction Friday – A Little Temperance

Last night on the stream, I decided to write some flash fiction for my new D&D character, Temperance, a dragonborn monk. Here it is: The girl dipped the rag into the water bowl and then wrung it out, black-scaled little hands twisting the excess water out of the torn, stained fabric. ​”Stupid Father Illethor,” she mumbled as she bent over Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – A Little Temperance

Flash Fiction Friday – Meet-Cute Aborted

I saw a pretty boy today, so I wrote this: She’d just shoved her phone back in her pocket after answering a text when she spotted him. He looked like a slimmer Thor, a face at once handsome and beautiful and just the right amount of beard. Blond hair, just wind-tussled enough, spilled down to his shoulders, a few tresses Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Meet-Cute Aborted

Flash Fiction Friday – The Dandelion

I wasn’t sure what to write for Flash Fiction Friday today, and ended up looking at random gifs for prompts. I found this one pretty quick, searching for “purple”. Here we go: The evening sky was painted in reds and oranges, a thin veil of clouds over the setting sun. She picked the cup up off of the small table Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Dandelion

Flash Fiction Friday – Out of the Oven

It’s Friday! Today’s flash fiction piece may or may not be based on real events (on that note, you should check out my friend’s Twitch channel: twitch.tv/geminick_). Here we go: Ding! “Oh, they’re ready! I’m so excited!” the witch said, clapping her hands together as she stood up from the kitchen table. “I wonder how they turned out! Come on, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Out of the Oven

Flash Fiction – Ivory Predictions

Last night, I wrote Flash Fiction live on my Twitch stream for the first time! It was an interesting experience. A few trolls, but those were easily banned. Most of the stream was actually about other things, I conlanged some and ended up talking about worldbuilding with someone, so the flash fiction did sort of take a back seat but Continue reading Flash Fiction – Ivory Predictions

Flash Fiction Friday – The Capybara

I felt like writing something cute today, so I decided to use this meet-cute generator and write the adorable opening paragraphs from some hypothetical story. I got this prompt in my first batch: “One character finds the lost toy of the other character’s child.” and since I’ve been watching a lot of Dream Daddy streams lately, of course I had to use Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Capybara

Flash Fiction Friday – The New Body

Tonight’s flash fiction piece is vaguely inspired by a dream I had the other day, though the tone in this is quite different from the dream: She sat in front of the tank for several hours the day before. The body was awe-inspiring, tall and powerful, silicone skin flawless. The red lips were parted slightly, showing a row of brilliant Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The New Body

Flash Fiction Friday – The Missing Boy

Yay, first flash fiction post in a while. I had the idea for this scene on a train in Wellington, watching a young conductor interact with some local schoolkids. I’ve got some other related ideas, so this may turn into something longer eventually: “And what are you kids talking about?” he said, playfully feigning a smack upside one boy’s head, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Missing Boy

Flash Fiction Friday – The First Score

I postponed my Flash Fiction Friday post until today so that I’d be able to write a piece based on my first session of the RPG Blades in the Dark (by John Harper). It was a lot of fun even though the GM (read: I) hadn’t quite prepared enough. Here’s a little scene I wrote that took place just after the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The First Score
