Welcome to #RainbowSnippets! Where six sentences of GLBT fiction are offered up and shared. It can be your own. It can be someone else’s. It just needs to GLBT.
My own snippet comes from ‘Aissa and Polyxena’, a m/m mythical tale of cross dressing, involving the unlikely pairing of Achille (known better as Achilles) and Troile (known better as Troilus). How to turn a tragic tale of ravishment and murder into a romance? Why, get the gods involved, of course. 🙂
“Ganymede,” I whispered the name of the former prince of my home. “This is Zeus’ own cup you’re offering me.”
“Few are brave enough to drink from it,” Ganymede warned. “One taste from it will change you forever. One taste of it will make you part of its power.”
