Rainbow Snippet for December 9, 2018




It’s been a while since I posted six sentences from an LGBTQIA+ body of work. My November project ended up being pure het, and kept me too busy to read from the other talented authors of the Rainbow Snippets FB page. I’ve missed these folks and hope you’ll check them out.

The following is a bit of ugliness from a disturbed mind. I hope you enjoy nonetheless!

Snippet:

Nickolas turned his head as if to say more. Shadowed by ruddy carmine and burnt caramel waves, his stoic wide-eyed face in profile was the most beautiful, erotic, and damning thing I’d ever seen. If I could pin him to a butterfly board and look at him forever like this my soul wouldn’t even scream sliding into hell.

That made me feel more unworthy, uglier and dirtier than my bastard of a father ever managed and I cursed this cocky kid for his silent, smug dismissal. Why was his body so slim and perfect, hair long and shiny while I got stuck with this doughy body and a crappy crew cut my father wouldn’t let me grow out? Nickolas taunted me with a placid smile.

If he could read this mind, do you think Nicky would run?

  1. Yup, probably would run. I would if I knew someone was thinking that.

  2. Yes, the idea of being pinned like a butterfly to a board might be a bit off-putting...

  3. I think he would run, no one wants to be pinned to a butterfly board. :)

    1. I agree. It's sad he never got the chance to escape. :( But he survived and ended up a little wiser far down the road.

  4. I don't think he'd run. I don't know his character like you do, but the words, "stoic... damning... cocky... taunted" makes me think Nickolas would belittle the other, sneer at his idol worship even. I may be reading too much into it, or reading the wrong thing entirely!
    I don't thing someone "beautiful... and perfect" would run away. He's cocky, he knows he's beautiful, he probably thrives on knowing that, eats it up. He doesn't even bother to turn face on to the other, but keeps his profile to him, yet knowing he's being watched, studied like a butterfly specimen!

    1. Oh, as well as "smug dismissal..." Doesn't seem like someone who would be embarrassed and leave! Anyway, that's what I think! He's your character! I may have him wrong, based on his perfection! Maybe he's an understanding guy!

  5. Not knowing the characters... I would say that Nicky would feel sorry for the other boy. Or at least he would feel compassion.

  6. Smug dismissal but a placid smile ... There are semblances of discord, but blossoming out of it, is conformity, harmony and understanding.

  7. Yes I think so...but, not certain. The umbrella by the by, is perfect.
