clare_dragonfly: woman with green feathery wings, text: stories last longer: but only by becoming only stories (Writing: plot bunnies)
Title: Underground, part 2
Word count: 470
Rating: PG
Prompt: 30 days, #3 and #4
Notes: Again, doing this crazy flash fiction meme as one weird short story!


Instead of explaining, Greg started rummaging in his messenger bag, frowning. I leaned back and crossed my arms over my chest, glaring at him. Not that it did any good, since he wasn’t looking at me. “I’m waiting.”

“Hang on a minute,” he said in response, irritated. Finally, he pulled out whatever he’d been looking for: a black box the size of my hand and a small cup. No, make that a goblet. It was gold, or at least something that looked like gold, it was shaped like a wineglass, and there were rubies (or maybe garnets) inlaid all around the lip. Definitely a goblet.Read more... )

Title: Underground, part 1
Word count: 600
Rating: PG-13 for gastrointestinal yuck
Prompt: 30 days, #1 and #2
Notes: This is for aldersprig and kc_obrien's 30 days of flash fiction meme. Except I don't really do flash fiction, so I'm attempting to do the whole thing as one short story. I combined the first two prompts and wrote this first section just short enough to fulfill the wordcount guidelines, "250 words, +/- 50 words, to each prompt." I have no idea what's going on in the story, but I'm pretty sure Greg does, so we should be okay.



“It’s going down.”

“What?”

“Down.” Greg pointed, for emphasis.

I stared at him. I still didn’t understand. “What do you mean, down? Trains don’t go down.”Read more... )
