Title: Fade to Black
Fandom/'verse: Tales of the Mascot
Rating/Warnings: Blood, fade to black, don't hit the author?
For the 2nd 30 Days of flashfic prompt #16, "write a scene that takes place at the end of a long road trip"
Summary: Down a member from betrayal, battered and weary from the fight that followed, the band makes their way to the nearest castle racing to reach there ahead of the invading army...


Kyle fought back the urge push the horses faster. Even he could tell they were already pushing them harder than they should. The poor animals were panting with a harsh wheezing that was painful to listen too and foaming at the mouth in a way he had always thought writers had made up. Rising higher on Lydia's shoulders he could finally make out the top of the walls over the next rise. "Yes! We've made it!"

Of course they have, because it's always this easy in good fiction. :) )

Day 15 – Prompt: Ascension


Follows from Prompt 7 Frigid. (LJ Link)


Osita had returned to staring at the snow covered ground as he trudged along with the gray lizard men. He was thankful that at least they were breaking a trail through the deepening snow. Even more thankful that the one who had his rope didn't yank on it like Chipped Tooth had. It was getting to be late in the evening when they finally stopped at a stone building that looked new and unweathered. Only then, turning and looking back did he realize just how high they had climbed up the mountain.

Rating/Warnings: slavery, intimidation
For the 2nd 30 Days of flashfic prompt #17, "write an uncomfortable story". Well, it's certainly uncomfortable for Barclay.
Summary: Barclay from A story set in three time periods ((LJ link for same) and A vanilla story on a kinky subject ((LJ link for same) Set after the second part of the three parter, and around the time of the vanilla story.


An hour after lunch was over Barclay had finally had the chance to get a sandwich from the kitchen. He had just finished his meal when Master came into the kitchen to speak to the cook. Putting his plate and glass in the sink he jumped when he suddenly felt a hand on his shoulder.

"Barclay. I've been meaning to call for you, boy. Come walk with me."

Title: Sweet Iced Tea
'verse: possibly [personal profile] aldersprig's Cali again. If not then another modernish setting in which slavery is still around.
Content note: Well, as mentioned above, slavery. And a hospital. And despite the opening paragraph no in-scene violence, just reference to it happening at other times.

Day 12 – Prompt: Sweet Iced Tea


Owen dreamed of pain. The pummeling he received the night before the first time he could remembered being sold. The time he fell after climbing to the apple he spotted after harvest. The belting he'd earned the last week for talking back at Mistress's son. He only realized he wasn't dreaming any more when he found he couldn't remember why he was hurting now.

Day 11 – Prompt: Write a movie trailer style trailer for a story, existing or not-yet-written

Two trailers. One for yesterday's Sacrifice, and another for the video game Magical Girl Apocalypse. I picture the narrator on both having Don LaFontaine's voice. But as he's dead, if any of these get filmed (hey, a guy can have unrealistic dreams, yes?) we can go with any of the guys from Five Guys in a Limo

Oh look, the trailers. You still have time to grab popcorn and a soda. )

Day 10 – write a story set in three different time periods

Setting: [personal profile] aldersprig's Tir Na Cali

Content warnings: slavery, potentially questionable consent (to be fair he doesn't say no and doesn't object, but he is a slave), no on page sex but it's pretty strongly implied.

Title: --- (Don't have one yet)

Part 1: Kids

Caera

Caera paused in her glum walk through the halls certain she heard something. She had worked herself into sulk at how utterly boring the day was, but perhaps slipping away from her tutor wouldn't be a waste of time after all. Nine ought to be old enough to go out and do things. But none of her older sisters or her brothers had any time for her.

Day 9 – Prompt: mourning dead gods

Universe: My own only vaguely developed superheroes setting. It's been said that superheroes are the gods and demigods of modern mythology. And sometimes when they fall they don't return in the next issue.

I had a partially written version that I might have used for Day 30 of the previous set, so when I decided to dust it off and try again it came together pretty quickly. Almost 800 words (that's shorter than the already written #10 that will be posted shortly).

Content warning: See the prompt above, the title below? It's a funeral. It's not a happy story. (But hopefully not overwrought)

Title: Threes


Jake swept up the broken glass while Bobby held the dustpan. Nick was supposed to be double checking the gas meter but he was conspicuously out front with the rest of them, checking his phone instead and passing on rumors.

"Man, first the earthquake, now they say that hurricane is going to send storms all the way inland to here."

"Inland to here? You make it sound like there's a beach closer than a three day drive."

"Yeah, and it's going to make it all the way here. But that wasn't what I was going for, what do you think the third thing will be."

Day 7 - Prompt: Frigid

Hmm. I think the combination of frigid making me think of winter and [personal profile] aldersprig's recent call for abduction story ideas made me remember this earlier idea of mine. Certainly the start of an idea, but I'm not sure where if anywhere it leads...

* * *

Osita trudged through new fallen snow. Watching the ground just ahead of him as he took each step. His mind growing as numb as his feet. On step after another, and then another. Walking long past wanting to stop. Wanting to rest for even a moment.

I shouldn't have kicked him.

Yelping as the slack on the rope around his neck was tugged, nearly dropping him to his knees. Simple fear all that drove his legs faster.

I really shouldn't have kicked him.

Day 6 – Prompt: write the pitch for a new Final Fantasy styled RPG

Our was a world of reason, a world of science, a world seeking peace. With their magics our world fell in but a single turn of the seasons. For a generation the invaders of the world of Silvernight ground this world underfoot. They have divided the world amongst themselves. They believe they have won. Now we strike back.

In Magical Girl Apocalypse the player must free the world of Arth from the invaders of Silvernight. Once a peaceful land Silvernight fell to the Dark Magical Girls, who turned on their heroic sisters and joined the forces of evil. With their home world shattered in the war of conquest the Dark Magical Girls needed a source of fresh magics and just as importantly a place to send their most ambitious children lest they turn on their parents.

The people of Arth, ignorant of magic, were unprepared. But now a generation later warriors have trained to overthrow the invaders. Take on the role of Clarissa, daughter of the last general to fall, who is now tasked with leading the fight for freedom; Kensington, the gruff veteran of the War of The Fall; and the young Ramona, daughter of an invader who has rebelled and taken her magics to the side of her father's people.

Seek out for your party: Knights, who have relearned the ancient ways of fighting; Gunslingers, masters of the rifle and pistol who face an edict of death if captured; Techmen, those who can understand the science of the past and use it to build new wonders; and Dabblers, who seek to learn and use the invader's own magics against them.

Combining elements of real time strategy in the battle for world liberation and the best of traditional turn based game play in individual fights, Magical Girl Apocalypse will have something for all players.

Can you free Arth from the Dark Magical Girl's grasp? Can you bring hope to the people? Or will the world of Arth be forever in the grip of darkness.

Day 5 - Prompt: Write a story using an imaginary color

Setting: The as yet un-named Magitech-Fantasy universe Nyalla the catgirl lives in. Uncertain time after the 30 Days, Day 30 story for Saying Goodbye.



The cavern was cool and dry, which suited Nyalla just fine. The Major had been following clues out into the desert and any excuse to get out of the sun or sunbaked ship was welcome.

While the outer section was rough and natural a sudden flat wall sealed off the back. Untold years of dust covered a mosaic of tiny tiles and even unwashed they could all see it would be a riot of clashing colors. Standing in front of it the Major had been staring at the wall for almost a quarter hour when he called for everyone to move back.
Warning, unnatural colors under cut. Those with esoteric vision issues should put on protective eye wear before continuing story under the cut... )

Day 4 – Prompt: one for the road.

Setting: Tales of the Mascot, wherein your average geek finds himself called by the Powers That Be to be the animal companion and guide to a new group of heroes.


One For the Road

Tamitha walked into the room and froze. On the far side by the windows most of their party was laughing as Kyle swung a broom about like a sword. The foxish creature hopping back and forth to portray both sides of a fight. Turning back to Lydia, who as often was busy reading, she sought out the group's voice of rationality.

"What is he doing now?"

"Telling a story."

Day 3 – Prompt: the story must involve a goblet and a set of three [somethings]

Setting: Galactic Academy sight of 30 Days 1st Semester stories First Class Education and The Computer is Never Wrong. Jumping ahead about a year or so.

Title: Aliens & Weddings (what? Playing off a movie title? Don't know what you're talking about :p)


Rick broke out the formal school uniform for the wedding. Which, fortunately for his room's tiny closet, meant little more than adding a freshly cleaned and pressed jacket to the normal school uniform. The meeting room Machio, or rather as Machio corrected Sather and Maykabi had selected was sparsely decorated. Lit only by a single spotlight above a small table in the center of the room. A large goblet, for that was all Rick could think to call it, sat in the center. From where he stood just outside the pool of light the goblet looked like it was nearly a foot tall and made from well polished wood. The bowl and base of the goblet were both about half as wide as it was tall. It was nearly a minute before Rick noticed the three tiny cups at the edges of the table. The were made from the same turned wood but were not much bigger than shot glasses.

Hmm... "the story must involve a goblet and a set of three [somethings]".

Fairly soon after seeing that prompt what came to mind was, a wedding ceremony for a three gendered species. That's still what's coming to mind. Hmm. Oh dear. TV Tropes has a whole index page of wedding tropes... There goes the rest of my lunch hour. :)
