#RainbowSnippets: My Tool, My Treasure

Welcome to Rainbow Snippets!

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

To read a wide variety of samples from LGBTQIA+ stories, go to…


I’m picking up where I left off last Saturday with Leiwell in My Tool, My Treasure, continuing until we reveal the identity of the voice…not yet, though. Here we get a look at a couple of the Followers of Seraphix, the haughty tailor and his wife, through Leiwell’s eyes, although it’s mostly his wife. This is a little bit longer than six sentences, forgive me…


Leiwell glanced around the throng of villagers gathered in the octagonal room, slashed with sunbeams. He spotted Meggie’s wild chestnut curls, escaping a half-hearted attempt to pin them up with what a small, oval shaped pin.

Ah, that had to Meggie’s talisman, the coin which bound her to Seraphix. It was slightly different shaped than Leiwell’s, only too easy to miss.

He reached up to touch the coin lying against his bare flesh, hidden beneath his tunic.

Meggie allowed her lips to part, yet her bosom heaved. She opened her hazel eyes wide, drinking in the sight of Leiwell, Dyvian, the assembled congregation. For the tailor’s wife, this was positively energetic.

    1. Thank you! That’s a major theme/plot point in A Godling for Your Thoughts? the book which comes before My Tool, My Treasure (one of the first three books standing by, still waiting for revision in my Tales of the Navel: The Shadow Forest).


  1. lol, I like Meggie as a character already! – the fact that the coin which binds her to divinity is being used to half-heartedly pin up her wayward hair, coupled with her mode of being ‘energetic’ gives a very rich impression!

    1. Thank you! I’m very proud of Meggie as a character. She wandered into my imagination almost accidentally, to cause trouble for another character in another universe, only to burrow herself inside as a permanent resident. 🙂

    1. Thank you! I’ve got a soft spot for Meggie myself and the coin is a central theme in A Godling for Your Thoughts?, the third book under revision in Tales of the Navel: The Shadow Forest, a novel loosely inspired by the coin/pentacle suit in Tarot cards.
