Rainbow Snippets: Fox Madison, WIP


“Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).

In this group you’ll find anything from romance and historical fiction to mystery and YA. The common thread is that every story’s main character identifies as LGBTQ+. The snippets could range from zero flames to full-on sexytimes, anything goes content-wise. The only rule is snippets will be 6 sentences long–one for each color in the Pride flag.”

Welcome to another story-filled weekend of rainbow snippets from tons of talented authors.

This is the ongoing tale of Fox Madison, bookshop apprentice in the mid 18th century, who has strangely woken up in the middle of the lane. He retraces his steps back to where he came from and is standing in front of his place of work, Snort and Witherby.


“Fox, what are you doing here? Are you drunk?”

“No, Master Witherby,” he told the man he worked for. A drop of rain fell on his hand as soft as a kiss.

“Go home, Mister Madison. We start inventory tomorrow, six of the clock sharp.”

    Good, something familiar for the poor guy. I love this sentence by the way “A drop of rain fell on his hand as soft as a kiss.” I really felt it.

    Love the drop of rain. His boss sounds rather… brusque.

    Loved this line ‘A drop of rain fell on his hand as soft as a kiss.’ I’m glad he found something familiar.

    Like everyone, I love that line about the rain and how it contrasts with Witherby’s brusqueness. I’m wondering if there’s something more there now 😉

    Great imagery with the raindrop. I’m really curious where this story is going.
