Rainbow Snippets: Protecting the Lights

Welcome to Rainbow Snippets!

Every Saturday, those participating post and share six sentences of LGBTQ+ fiction on their blogs. It can be their own. It can be someone else’s. It just needs to be LGBTQ+.

To read a wide variety of samples from LGBTQ+ fiction, go here…


For mine, Leiwell picks up where he left off on Me Me Monday in Protecting the Lights…


I was never alone when I slept. Not after that. Every time I closed my eyes, I found my master waiting for me.

The first time Dyvian strode through the garden, laying a hand on one of the roses blooming there.

It withered, petals turning black once he stroked it with his fingers.

I backed away, my chest throbbing with memories of an anger which once pulsed in my head and heart.

To be continued on Monday…

  1. Nicely written. The complications between them really pop. Sorry for your computer issues. I struggled to get Scrivener writing software up today when needed for my Camp NaNo challenge. Thank heaven it finally worked. Otherwise, I was going to use MSWord, which doesn’t show my word count so readily. ~grin~ Thank you for sharing. And Happy Writing!

  2. Thank you! Yes, I’m having to use Chrome right now to post here. I have to decide if I want to get the latest OS, losing many of Apple/Steve Jobs classic features which have done away with in later versions or continue to use Chrome, which will problems and complications with the rest of my online activities. (sighs)


  3. Dyvian is arousing my curiosity…

    I use Chrome and Firefox at home with no issues. (I usually have both up and running at the same time, each with multiple tabs.) But then, I’m on a PC not a Mac so that might make a difference.

    1. Yay! I was hoping he would. πŸ™‚

      I’m guessing it probably does make a difference. (sighs) I used to love Apple when Steve Jobs was alive. I’m not at all happy about a lot of the changes that have been. It’s much harder to figure things out and applications I’ve come to love and rely on are being done away with. (another sigh)
