Rainbow Snippets, January 5 – 6, 2019
In the Rainbow Snippets Facebook group, readers, writers, and bloggers share short (six sentences) snippets of their LGBTQIA+ fiction or book recs each weekend. In the first snippet of the new year, we’re looking forward (or in some cases, back).
In this snippet from Nudging Fate, Andy, a half-norn event planner who has been strictly forbidden by Asgard from meddling with peoples’ destinies, is certain that his unexpected (and unwilling) masquerade as a candidate for the hand of Reyner of Maidencourt, the One True Prince of Faerie, will put him in Odin’s crosshairs for sure. That’s provided other revenants from history don’t get him first!
“If it seems like the prince prefers me to any of the other candidates”—And really, how likely was that?—“do you think anyone will believe that I didn’t nudge Fate to make it happen?” Andy slumped in his chair. “I mean, how likely is it that all candidates were incapacitated at once?”
“That was Johan. And Talus.” Brooke tapped her lip with one silver fingernail. “I have to admit, I like the way Talus handled that.”
Andy shuddered. “You need to read The Faerie Queene. You won’t be so eager to see him revert back to that type.”
“Blood? Gore? Death and untold destruction?”
She grinned, baring her extra-pointy incisors. “Sounds like my kind of party.”
