Dressed Decoy

An impractical costume, to be sure, but it made an impression on our conquests, and the Captain enjoyed the view.

And after our spoils were tucked below or trailing behind ship, I took pleasure in his undivided attention and his groans of pure lust.

Pretty sure this one was supposed to be published in August, given the nautical theme. Hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing summer with lots of water, maybe some sand and plenty of butterflies :) What would your two line story be?

At the first glimpse of the palace, the aches of the journey faded, the worry dimmed and his heart lifted.

For surely, someone there would remember him, at least one person would have dreamt of his return.

This is a crop of a larger picture, though I didn’t realize that when I was using it as a prompt. The larger version actually has a horseman riding along the path to the left.

“After everything I’ve taught you, all the power I know you both possess, and yet you’re still caught?”

The dean sadly shook his head.

“They’ll be no more warnings after this. If you can’t take what you’ve learned and hide your indiscretions…then there’s no room for you at this school.”

It’s like a test all of its own and they’ve been failing miserably since they’re too caught up in one another XD

The message whispered and hummed and crackled, a sizzling fire morphing upon brazen wings.

Then it dispersed, orange embers floating away, turning to ash upon the carpet, leaving him with nothing but the fading echoes of that goodbye.

Emo anime boys are a staple at this point, I’d imagine. So here’s a pretty one with a morose end (or beginning) to his love life.

Way to a Man’s Heart

Do not gravitate toward the man, thinking the similarities in body translate to like-mindedness, for that would be your undoing.

Rather, flatter his hounds, praise their aptitude and direct your requests to them, for then, and only then, will he consider you worthy as anything more than a next meal.

This was one of my favorite image prompts this year, which I’m sure does not surprise you at all, for it reminds me of a houndmaster in all his primal glory ;)

He remembered…a time when he’d been more than sand, more than rock, when he’d been lush, rife with shape and sound, though now only the silence sang to him.

Yet this…being, it promised a new land, one in need of a titan’s power to protect, to cherish…to try again.

Less romantic, unless you envision the titan reforming and willing to risk sorrow again for the love of a man, but I liked this take on the image.

One Question

By some trickery, only starlight pierced into the Oracle’s cave as her voice turned breathy and frail.

She told me my first love would leave me early, only to return and kill my second, and that both would be men of power and prestige – though of differing kinds and with differing people.

Got to be creative when there’s a female in the picture, but there’s always a way to make it work :) Apologies for not scheduling the last few weeks. No excuses. Kids are back in school and leaving me time to become sane again. Love you all!

The Cold Kind of Lovin’

Everywhere was a cemetery of some sort at some time, death merely a precursor to life anew.

But he harbored a fondness for aged headstones, midnight black cats and the undead men who dwelled in such garishly macabre places.

Because what kind of fantasy author would I be without at least one mention of vampires or zombies of some sort? XD

Upon This Rusted Field

Religious texts waxed on about the red-stained sand representing the sins of the forefathers. The scientists mumbled something about oxidation and reaction.

Maybe they were both right, for when I lay upon the ground with you, I simply can not breathe and my sinful lust controls the very cells of my body.

This is beach week for my family! We’re taking our RV to the Outer Banks (NC) for the first time (so wish us luck!). When we made a patio this spring we had a bunch of sand delivered and dumped in our driveway, not exactly the same thing, but I dug my feet in anyway and wished and wished. Thought a sandy world was appropriate :)

If you wrote a two line story for this picture, what would it be about?

When the Choice Becomes Apparent

His sponsor’s daughter had been born with an invasive disease that returned year after year…after year.

He obeyed reluctantly the first few times, but it got easier, and when it did, he changed, became a man unrecognizable, a man I no longer trusted, so I fled, not anticipating him following.

I had another story for this image, but it didn’t have any kind of relationship mentioned, the referenced plot in that one dealing with the transfer of souls versus the death of them. Plus the one above, while seemingly sadder, also has a happy ending, where the one I ending up not using seemed happy at first and then twisted sadder.

So better all around I guess :)

This title was difficult as well. The first one was “The One Thing He Couldn’t Stand to Lose” and that’s just a mouthful of awfulness. Granted the title I settled on isn’t the most amazing thing ever either, but it’s…better XD
