Rainbow Snippet for 10-14-2017

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.

More from Onyx Sun, (which really will be finished some day) picking up from last week, with the “other thing.”

“You’ll think I’ve lost my mind.”

“Never.”  Ni reached out and almost touched her cheek then drew ni-es hand away, uncertain.

Taliya closed her eyes, suddenly acutely disappointed at the almost contact.  “I… Sometimes I can… feel things… It feels like the ship is alive, has emotions, feelings.  I – I think that maybe I was sensing him.”

“Why do you think that?”

“Because of what I was feeling and when.”

“What were you feeling?

Ayess’ race does not have words for he/she/his/hers, etc, because they are (for lack of a better term) hermaphroditic. Their pronouns to refer to other members of their race are “ni” (for he/she/him/her), “ni-es” (his/hers), “ni-en” (they/them) and “ni-en-es” for theirs.

  1. Careful touches can mean so many things, but I think it means something nice here.

  2. Such a sensual, sweet, yet intriguing scene.

    Ah, and you’ve left us with yet another question. This is a very nice scene between them here.

  4. Cool! Surely that’s a good thing for a pilot, to be able to sense things about the ship. Unless, it’s not so much the ship itself she was sensing?

  5. I love how their relationship is growing, and sensing the ship? Whoa!

    An almost-touch and then a sentient ship! So many exciting things happening this week!

  7. Love the undercurrent between them amidst the mystery of the alien on the ship.
