Epic fantasy porn, you're mine.

Well it took me a year, but I finally managed to submit another erotic short story to a publisher. Incidentally, it was to Circlet Press, with whom I was published in March, and who counted as my last successful submission back in June of '10. Submitting "Sunflowers" to Dreamspinner was a submission, but that baby needs a lot of work. :P It was fun to write! Once I got past the angst of "oh god I'm so out of practice writing original fic" and went head-first into the porn, everything was fine. I figured out motivation for all characters while they were fucking, and everything got squared away. If nothing comes of this submission I'll definitely still share, because I'm quite fond of my two fantasy quest adventure boys!

The premise of the anthology is what happens in epic fantasy quests behind the scenes. Which is sex. In my fic, Encounter at the Lonely Dragon, Gavin Thorne is dragged back into adventuring by a depressed economy, and has to go questing to make money. I based it in the D&D games I used to play when i was young, and then later with my high school boyfriend and his friends, which was a treat. I just love the idea of having to quest as a job, and not as something people just fall into.

Anyway, Gavin has to sleep in the loft of the stable because everyone else in the world is looking for quests to pay the bills, and he's set up by the barmaid to run into an ex-boyfriend who screwed him over a few years back and contributed to his retirement from adventuring. One thing leads to another, tension tension etc, and they totally have sex.

The fic is only 7k, but it might be fun to revisit them and give them an actual fantasy quest. I've alluded to a lot and let a lot of things to assumption and conjecture, but it might be fun to play more in this world. I've always wanted to write a D&D fic where I actually rolled (my set of D&D) dice to determine the outcome.

Good Stuff on the Way
