Plus Love (Loren's Lashes; holiday gift story)

Everyone calls her a fag hag. But Gay Pride Day has arrived, and her best friend is about to give her a new name.

"Tell me you're gay!" Gary nearly knocked her to the floor as he scrambled over her. "Please tell me you're gay!"

FIC: Men and Lads (Life Prison) - 2010 holiday gift story

Two guards. Two prisoners. A multitude of problems.

Parental supervision is strongly suggested for this story.

He knew what his prisoner's expression would be before he saw it: a mixture of apprehension, wary hope, and the expression he had come to fear most of all – determination.

This is my 2010 holiday gift story, posted in celebration of Midwinter's Eve, marking the beginning of Hell's Fast. (I trust that you've all had your merrymaking in preparation for the long winter deprivation.) The story is in response to this prompt by [ profile] shadowsonthesun (though your name really should be shadowonthemoon tonight, you know).

FIC: The Unanswered Question (The Eternal Dungeon)

No weapons, no allies, and no guarantees that he will survive the test.

Parental supervision is strongly suggested.

He was weaponless. Or rather, not quite weaponless, for he knew what he was capable of doing with his body, but he bore no blade, nor any whip, nor any lead pipe with which to stun his victim, nor any rope with which to strangle the victim . . . The number of potential weapons he had deliberately laid aside was frighteningly high.

Prompt fest

Because everyone's doing it, and I'm a shameless imitator, and also because I'm sick and tired of thinking about exciting topics such as whether it's better to use drop caps or small caps to introduce a passage . . .

I'm asking for prompts for stories in any of my series. As M. Chandler nicely summarized it: "Leave a comment on this entry with a prompt for a . . . short story that you'd like to see: a character or two, or maybe a basic situation, or an event from one of the books that I glossed over, whatever floats your boat. Please don't be too specific--I need room to thrash!"

I echo her last sentence: The more general the prompt, the more likely it is that my fickle Muse will take to it. "Show us the scene where Character X revealed his secret to Character Y" is likely to get my Muse's attention. He likes writing missing scenes. However, "Show Character Z in a porcelein bathtub, watching 'Gilmore Girls' while drinking Bacardi" will force him to point out that the author hasn't watched TV since 2001 and hasn't drunk alcohol since the 1990s, so that particular scene would take a little too much research.

Also, my Muse reserves the right to like a story idea so much that he wants to spend a lot of time on it, in which case it won't get posted for months.

Since I have three versions of this blog, I'll post my responses in a separate post, so that everyone can see them.

FIC: Queue (Prison City)

This is flash fiction for my upcoming Prison City retrofuture series, which is partly set in a 1960s world that has Jetsons-like devices. It was written in response to this prompt by Lothy at the slavefics LJ community.

Depositing money in the bank was always the worst problem.

FIC: Re-creation (The Three Lands) - 2008 holiday gift story

Cover for Re-creation

What can you give a slave who, by law, can own nothing? . . . A 2008 holiday gift story for Dusk Peterson's readers.

He could not leave this room without his father's permission. And he could not imagine going to his father and saying, "Please let me go gather moss so that my slave can have a proper New Year for once."
