Author's Notes: So yeah I just found this in my files and it's actually not bad -- I think -- so I'm posting it.

Here I am, I’m in the wrong bed again
It’s a game I just can’t win
There you are, breathing soft on my skin
Still you won’t let me in, so come on
Why save your kisses for a rainy day?
Baby let the moment take your heart away

The Geisha from the Opium Den, original fiction, R

Title: The Geisha from the Opium Den (inventive, I know)
Rating: R
Warnings: Language, sex, character death
Disclaimer: Actually, all my own work for once!
Summary: Her every delicate turn of the wrist, handing the tiny china cups to her suitor, myself - the foreigner less foreign - and the old Manchu, is scripted, so fluid as to look effortless, but it has taken years of training to get to this level of security within the role she is playing. She is not a pretty whore, but they rarely are.
Notes: On a bit of an Angela Carter spree at the moment; anyway, have fun with it. Inspired by the short story A Souvenir of Japan, from Fireworks: Nine Profane Pieces, and Arthur Golden's Memoirs of a Geisha.

Somnambulism, PG

Title: Somnambulism
Rating: PG
Warnings: Um... None, really.
Disclaimer: Actually, all my own work for once!
Summary: Sometimes, I wonder if I have only dreamed them both.
Author's Notes: Inspired by Angela Carter and her novel The Infernal Desire Machines of Doctor Hoffman.

It’s different with her; she’s fragile, breakable. Her body is transparent beneath her robes of poppy-coloured silk, long brown hair like gossamer wires of burnished bronze, copper fluttering in between, the strands of twisted metal grating on her skin. My wife, with her flesh of glass.

He is solid beneath my fingers, but he seems to shimmer like a mirage, like air on a very hot summer’s day; not quite consistent. His heart beneath his palpitating chest is not a muscle, but a knot of flames which flicker and spark, making his ribcage glow like a lantern. My lover, with his aura of fantasy.

Sometimes, I wonder if I have only dreamed them both, neither seeming to be fully there in my arms when I hold them close. I fall asleep, my arms wrapped around him, and when I wake up, there is a deep, spiky black rose on the pillow, a lingering droplet of blood on my fingertip. Confused, I turn to where my wife should lie, to find a lily, stained deep red in the centre where the style has broken away.

It is snowing outside, tiny white flakes swirling down past my window; rain clouds have frozen in the atmosphere, the sky a violent, bloody violet above me, without a single star in sight. Waves lap at my feet, although I don’t hear the cry of gulls in my ears to indicate the sea shore around me. Instead, it is dark – the faint flickering light from the rose in my hand extinguished – but for the somnolent silver glow from the lily I left behind on my pillow.
