Rainbow Snippet for 3-19-2016

Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, bloggers, and readers to gather once a week and share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).   Check out all the other awesome snippets by clicking on the picture above.

Tirza is curious about Sword Dancers, despite Kel’s insistence that they don’t exist.


“Why are they illegal?”

Kel sighed, sensing that there would be no rest until Tirza’s curiosity was satisfied. And maybe it would be for the best; the sooner she was convinced that Sword Dancers did not exist, the safer they both would be.

“Because they were considered to be too dangerous to be allowed to live.”

“I would think,” Tirza said slowly, “that it would have made more sense for the rulers to have taken them on as personal or palace guards, an elite force.”

“No,” Kel replied. “The Sword Dancers swore allegiance to no one.  They held to their own codes, which were far more honorable than those of the ones in power.”

  1. Yep, it’s starting to make sense. But maybe they’re not as “extinct” as Kel wants her to believe…

  2. They’re legendary–an underground shadow group, I’m thinking. They’re appealing to the rebel in me.

  3. I’m pretty fascinated about them myself

  4. Louise lyons

    She’s certainly tenacious, and she got something out of him in the end :)

  5. Intriguing. Something tells me this won’t necessarily convince Tirza that the Sword Dancers no longer exist.

  6. AM

    I’m really enjoying seeing this unfold. I like the idea of this group with their own code of honor.

  7. I <3 Kel. Can't wait for the next snippet!

  8. I’m going to ditto Charley’s comment. Bring it on!
