Flannel Flambo

The fields were vibrant green this time of year, and the temperature was impeccable, perfect for his khaki capris and sandals.

“Now why did you wear flannel plaid pants again, Lukas?”

The warper jangled down under Rog’s plain blue T as he began to pace down the road before them. He could feel the glare of his entertainment for the evening pierce at the base of his spine.

“You know very well plaid is traditional in Scotland.  I don’t want to walk into the President’s informal ball and blend in.”

“Again,” Rog quipped over his shoulder, “why the plaid?”

The glare transformed into a roll for a moment.  “Do I have to spell it? Plaid = normal.  That’s what the poof collar and purple-pink matching shoes are for, dumb-nuts.”

“Right, because Victorian blouses accented with pajama pants and matching Mary Janes will totally blend in at an informal Scottish anything.”

The clicking of Luke’s heels against the cobbles matched step next to Rog.  “That’s the whole point.  Not lost in the crowd, but not overbearing.  The perfect combo to say, ‘Hey, if you’re interested in a one-night stand with an audience, then buddy you found your Flambo.’”

A little note on the Flambo thing.  This story is in our future, and that is the new slang term for homosexual.  As always, don’t be offended and whatnot, it’s a story and I’m just trying to have fun with it. ^_^ This is where Rog and Luke started out, before the Aboriginies and random string warping began.

Another note, I know these flash updates aren’t always going to be great.  They are fast-written on purpose, and they will not always be winners.  But they are awesome practice and great for any feedback you may wish to give me.  Eventually, when more are accumulated, I may put them all in one place, like goodreads, where my other stories and Elaseim chapters are, but for now they will remain here.

And on that note, just to let you know, the final background chapter of Journeys of the Elaseim is up!  I had a great comment/critique posted by J.J. Harkin on Chapter 4, and would greatly appreciate any other in-depth critiques like his on any of my writing.  I love feedback.  It makes my brain smile.  You want my brain happy, don’t you? 😀

So until next time, read up, comment, and by all means let me know if there are any writings of yours you’d like critique on as well.  I’d be more than happy to give feedback in return for feedback.  Thanks all, and come again!
