I was at a total loss of what to do for the letter G, until I thought of gems. Crystal Gems, actually. I’m a fan of the Steven Universe cartoon, and of Garnet in particular.
I figured I haven’t written fore the blog in a while (been writing a lot, just trying to get them published which means I can’t share them yet). This one works both for the Terribleminds Flash Fic challenge, and for A to Z. Had to use a dragon in the story, and title it something beginning with F.
Fang and Fire
Felix held the vial of orange powder between his thumb and forefinger. Almost looked like taco seasoning, or maybe the contents of a sugar straw like he snuck from the corner store. But this, this was Dragon. Made you strong, powerful like you had a fire inside, and your breath sent up billows of smoke.
He’d been selling the stuff for almost a year now. Even when he lost a few clients to the side effects, he was still raking it in. He even broke his ‘don’t sample the product’ rule. It was too new and different not to. The boost it gave him, he never went into a dangerous situation without it anymore.
Special stuff like this, there was so much potential being wasted. His supplier, the only source of Dragon he knew of to exist, only sold tiny amounts at a time. Felix was going to change that. He was ready to move up in the world.
I was thinking about non-chocolate desserts (since I appear to have become allergic). Why not make it cute? And why not dinosaurs? Candy outside, rice krispies inside. I totally want to try making these. Don’t judge me if I dye the insides red and unleash my inner T-Rex!
This April, I’m doing the A to Z challenge! Every day, or nearly so, I’ll be posting something along the alphabet until I get to Z. Day 1 is A, so I made a chubby axolotl for you.
