Snippet Dec 17.

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.

I would invite everyone to please come check out the Rainbow Snippets group, click on a link, read and comment on the writing available and get involved yourselves in this awesome exercise. The link to the group can be found HERE.  Today's snippet is from the same WIP as last weeks, this conversation takes place between Danny and Steph, Jax's sister, after she calls him to take jax home from the shop when he's suffering from a migraine. 

“At this point, I’m sure he’ll be willing to try anything and if he isn’t, then he deserves a good smack.”

“I don’t think he’d thank me for that nor would I want to find out what would happen when he felt better,” Danny said.

Her laugh was almost musical as she waved him off. “Don’t let the exterior or the sarcasm fool you, he’s a big teddy bear. It takes a lot to get him riled up.”

“I’ve seen him pissed,” Danny remarked, shuddering at the memory. “I wouldn’t want to see that again.”

“I heard about that shit with you’re ex, you didn’t need that scumbag hon, and if he ever comes back again, you just let jax know and I guarantee he’ll make sure he stops coming around.”

“I ummm, thanks,” Danny stammered. “Does umm, does he get migraines a lot? Maybe I should take him to the ER, they have shots to help.”

“I know, I’ve had to drag him there once and it wasn’t even as bad as this one, but he hates hospitals, and all trying to take him will do is cause an argument, get him frustrated, make him yell and make him puke. I’d rather not go the dramatic route if we can help it.”


  1. Silly Jax. I hope Danny can talk him into a drama-free shot.

  2. Ugh, migraines. Unfortunately, I'm a lot like Jax. I would put up a fight before going in to get looked at.

  3. Migraines are no fun and neither are hospital emergency departments. Hopefully a dark quiet room will make it better.

  4. Ugh, migraines. Poor Jax. Love the banter between these two!

  5. This is such a sweet story. I love the little details and, as rhodry said, I love the banter.

  6. Danny seems like such a lovely humble guy. I bet he could talk Jax into going to the hospital, and without even trying.
