Rainbow Snippet for 8-15-2020

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.

Still posting from that “Steampunk Thing.” The first draft isn’t done yet and I’m hoping that this will keep me motivated to keep at it.

“Cecily… I believe I met her last evening. There was a lady leaving the warehouse when I got there and when I told Miss Madison that the lady leaving had told me to see myself in she referred to her as Cecily and seemed relieved she’d gone.”

James chuckled. “No doubt she was. Cecily doesn’t approve of Miss Victoria and doesn’t try to hide her disdain. Miss Victoria mostly ignores her, which only aggravates Cecily all the more.”

I shook my head. “How can you not approve of your own sister? It’s not like she’s a drunkard or a loose woman.”

“She’s not ‘ladylike’ enough. Cecily is all about appearances, all fluff and bubbles, whereas Miss Victoria is much more practical and down to earth.”

  1. Fluff and bubbles…love that description. 🙂

  2. Miss Cecily seems like the more typical ideal for a Victorian woman sadly.
