This month’s story image prompt from the Cyberpunk Writer’s group I’m part of. Not very cyberpunk in ethos (my story, not the image), but I still like how it played out.

Leave a comment if you are feeling kind.


Okay, so I had to take a second stab at this. I got about 500 words into my first attempt and realized it was crap. Here is take two. I wasn’t taking myself or the story seriously, and I’m sure that shows. Besides, how are you supposed to take a challenge like DIE HARD meets THE MUPPETS seriously?


This week’s challenge: a subgenre mash-up. Lucky, lucky me ended up with Weird West (wich I have done before) and BDSM erotica (which I haven’t). The scale is more heavily weighed to the former than the latter, but then I had around 1500 words to work with and I went a bit over by about 100 words.

That said, there’s a bit more sex in this than you might otherwise expect from things I write and the violence does get fairly gory. Fair warning right? All that said, this could be the kind of thing I come back to.
