Six Sentence Sunday 9/18/11



Today's six is from my latest sale to Etopia Press: a m/m erotic horror story called Last Friday Night. Tyler's little brother Dylan has just been kicked out by their parents, and Tyler finds himself a little less than sympathetic.


And then there was another part of him that reared its ugly head while Dylan had told his tale. It was the part telling him to beat the shit out of his brother for ever going there with Sean in the first place; but what little rationality he had left told him beating his younger brother for fucking a guy might be considered gay bashing. He might not have been fond of the...gays, but he wasn’t about to go to jail just because they wanted to prance around all proud and whatnot.
 
“I’m not gay,” Dylan said. When Tyler looked at him, he was staring straight back, his expression serious. There was none of the uncertainty there he’d heard during his brother's story, but whether there was uncertainty there or not, that was bullshit.

 For more authors who may or may not be prancing around all proud and whatnot, be sure to check out the Six Sentence Sunday site here.

  12. Very interesting, seconding "Prance around all proud and what-not" for showing the character quite well.

  13. Great six, Brian! It's fun trying to figure out exactly how many of the characters are bullshitting themselves. (My guess: Both.)
