I haven’t done one of Chuck Wendig’s flash fiction challenges in a while, so I thought I’d do one again and share the results. But I think I got more than I bargained for. This week’s challenge was another subgenre mashup (last time gave us Dreams of Drowning); this time I rolled “Grimdark Fantasy” crossed with “BDSM Erotica.”
I hadn’t expected that.
But I think I’ve succeeded at delivering on those things, maybe? It certainly is BDSM erotica, and I think the trappings are sufficiently grimdark fantasy-esque to qualify. You’ve been warned.
