Flash Fiction Friday – Friends and Enemies

I sort of forgot it was Friday today and was about ready to go to bed when I remembered. Since I’ve been slacking with my flash fiction lately due to Camp NaNoWriMo, I decided to stay up and whip something up. This little scene from the back-story of Sarge, my Blades in the Darks character, came to mind. Hope you Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Friends and Enemies

Flash Fiction Friday – Ferrets and Fucked-Up Shoulders

I’ve posted a few snippets set in the tabletop rpg Blades in the Dark before, and since I’m currently playing in a campaign set in the system I thought it would be fun to write a snippet with my character! Isabel, more known as Sarge, is an ex-military grump who isn’t sure why she’s involved in so much weird shit Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Ferrets and Fucked-Up Shoulders

Flash Fiction Friday – The Water Ballet

My Dungeons & Dragons group are about to start a new campaign soon, which will be set in the world of one of my favorite tabletop rpg shows Critical Role. I’ll be playing a halfling druid, who I suspect will be quite adorable. We did a short session zero type thing, and I wrote this little scene taking place just Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Water Ballet

Flash Fiction Friday – Docking

I’ve been watching a lot of Star Trek lately. Been making my way through The Original Series and also watching Shield of Tomorrow, a Star Trek rpg show on Geek & Sundry. This has all lead me to be in a space ship and alien sort of mood, so I wrote this little piece: ​”Attention all passengers.” The voice that came through Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Docking

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 – 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

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 – 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

#AdventBoost Day 21 – Nadja Otikor aka Tristarae

I have tabletop rpgs on the brain right now. I recently GMed D&D for the first time, am preparing to do it for the second time in a couple of weeks and casually dreaming of setting up a streamed game of some kind in the spring, if I can. I’m actually having some trouble focusing on my written fiction because Continue reading #AdventBoost Day 21 – Nadja Otikor aka Tristarae

Flash Fiction Friday – When Mama Died

This poor, neglected blog, you knows. I’ll do better, pinky promise. Today I bring you a short piece that’s part of the backstory of one of my D&D characters. I love this character so much, and it’s also nice to be able to write, and even be kinda poetic-proseish like below, but not feel the pressure of a larger project.
