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 – Guests

I felt like dragons today. The dragon yawned and stretched in the noontime sun, the golden scales glittering and sending flashes of light in dancing around the opening to the cave. The stone was nice and toasty by now, so much so it made her sleepy. She considered, in passing, spending the whole day there at the mouth of her Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Guests

Flash Fiction Friday – The Pegasus

I was way too distracted last night to do flash fiction; I was up until past 2 a.m. preparing random encounter tables for a D&D game I ran today. It went really well! And really long! And about half is left… I may have overplanned a bit… But it was fun! So since I have D&D on the brain, I’m Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Pegasus

#AdventBoost Day 24 – Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed

And so it is Christmas, everyone! Here in Sweden, we celebrate on Christmas Eve, which means I have spent today eating, drinking and being utterly spoiled by my family who have put me a good bit closer to my budgetary goals for going to New Zealand next year. In the inevitable post-Christmas-lunch lull when everyone (but me, who is always already Continue reading #AdventBoost Day 24 – Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed

#AdventBoost Day 4 – Poison Kiss by Ana Mardoll

Today is a second Sunday of advent and I have an extra special boost for you all. Now obviously, I only rec things I like, but this one is a special favorite! It is hands down the best book I’ve read this year: Poison Kiss by Ana Mardoll. Poison Kiss is a fantasy (poly) romance novel about Rose, a young woman who Continue reading #AdventBoost Day 4 – Poison Kiss by Ana Mardoll

#AdventBoost Day 2 – The Substitutes by Myisha Haynes

Hi guys, and welcome to day 2 of #Adventboost! Today I want to point you all in the direction of the awesome webcomic The Substitutes by Myisha Haynes. I tripped over this gem by accident recently, and it was one of those moments where I read a couple of pages and then was stuck and had to keep reading, only to discover Continue reading #AdventBoost Day 2 – The Substitutes by Myisha Haynes

Flash Fiction Friday – The Feather

Hi guys! Time for flash fiction Friday. Tonight I’m doing a piece based on a Dixit card again! It’s been a while, so it was fun to do it. Here we go: He hurried between the trees, crouched low. Moving with barely more than a swish, he dodged around shrubs and over roots following the tracks without the slightest hesitation. Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Feather

Flash Fiction Friday – The Final Battle

Hi guys! Hope y’all are having a lovely day. Today it’s Friday, so it’s time for some flash fiction. Today I’m doing a Dixit-inspired image prompt piece. It’s been a long while since I did one of those, don’t you think? For those of you who don’t know, Dixit is possibly my favorite board game and features amazing, fantastical illustrations Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Final Battle

Flash Fiction Friday – The Immortal

Hey guys! It’s time for Flash Fiction Friday! I was watching the first half of Return of the King today with my parents, and tonight’s flash fiction piece, rather than being a Dixit prompt or from some prompt generator, is inspired by the character Arwen and the idea of an immortal sire to mortal progeny. Here it is: The girl had Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Immortal
