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 – 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 – Subway Thoughts

Hi guys! I’m drunkish. I wrote a thing. Here it is: When she left the pub and went home that night, her head was full of lovers. Old lovers, tethered to her by fond memories. New lovers, their smells fresh and unknown. Lover that had come, and lovers that persisted. Lovers that might’ve been but never were, lovers that never Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Subway Thoughts

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 – 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
