The Limits of Our Imperfection

Setting: My own

Original short fiction (challenge)

Standard disclaimer: This is intended as a work of fiction. It may contain adult themes or upsetting material.

When I ran short of inspiration but wanted to get back into the swing of short blog fiction, I decided to use the same prompt set as for Neptune’s Rain Cuts Like Diamonds where you randomly roll a title, first line and last line from a list.

9 – The Limits of Our Imperfection (Title)

7 – The odd man remained silent, forcing a small, copper box into my hands. (First line – though I thought it was ‘old man’, so that’s where I ended up)

9 – The smoke was blue and grey and smelled like a promise. (Last line)

Struck By Lightning

Setting: Changeling: The Lost

Original fanfiction

Standard disclaimer: This is intended as a work of fanfiction. It may contain adult themes or upsetting material. I do not claim to own Changeling: The Lost or any of Onyx Path/White Wolf’s intellectual property.

This fanfic was inspired when I was reading Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes – in the opening, a seller of lightning rods provides one of the characters with a weird, misshapen lightning rod that has lots of angles and occult symbols on it. I suddenly wanted to write a Changeling: The Lost love story about a self-effacing lightning rod who longed to dance because he had fallen in love with the lightning itself. I would personally recommend listening to Night and Day as performed by Fred Astaire as you read, but I won’t hold it against you if you don’t! Continue reading “Struck By Lightning”

The Hanging Tree

Setting: My own

Original flash fiction (challenge)

Standard disclaimer: This is intended as a work of fiction. It may contain adult themes or upsetting material.

This is a flash fiction challenge from Chuck Wendig’s blog, Terrible Minds (NSFW), in which the prompt was ‘write about a tree’. It was meant to be limited at 1000 words but…uh…I’m bad at conveying a whole narrative in 1k. Working on that. Also, turns out grim fairy tale/fantasy is kind of a thing I enjoy writing, who’d have thought it?

See here for the original post.

Fans of the Hunger Games films will detect some influence from a certain song. Entirely intentional, ‘The Hanging Tree’ was definitely going round in my head while I wrote this.

Fight of the Century

Setting: My own

Original flash fiction (challenge)

Standard disclaimer: This is intended as a work of fiction. It may contain adult themes or upsetting material.

This is a flash fiction challenge from Chuck Wendig’s blog, Terrible Minds (NSFW), in which the prompt was ‘Good vs. Evil’. I didn’t post a link on that page because I got nervous and bottled out, partly as well because I don’t know anything about wrestling, but I couldn’t get this epic match out of my head.

See here for the original post.
