More nicknames and regrets. Read a #WeWriWa snippet from TAYRYM #scifiromance #LGBTQ #newrelease


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who came to visit me last weekend! TAYRYM, the fourth Galactic Defenders story, is now available! 

Set-up: In last week's snippet, Tayrym explained to Guri why Gwenodyn calls him Scrym. The talk of nicknames continues. The first line is Guri speaking. (Creative punctuation used to fit the 10 line limit.)

“So if I call you Tay Tay, what do you want to call me?”

Tayrym smiled. “Mine.” His cock stirred as he waited for Guri’s reaction.

A deep laugh rumbled from Guri. He grinned before lying back and closing his eyes. “As much as I want that to be true, I don’t know if it’s possible, not with you leaving in a few day cycles.”


Tayrym tapped a finger against his bottom lip. Why did this have to be so hard? Why did they only now get together?

Tayrym has dreamed of becoming a Galactic Defender since meeting the infamous Bryce when he was just a boy. Finally an adult and awaiting the day cycle he is set to leave for training, Tayrym learns his long-time crush shares his affections. Now, he’s unsure whether he wants to leave, which dream matters more.

With the threat of being sent away for his sexuality haunting him, Guri keeps his feelings for his former classmate to himself. Even with a new progressive ruler on Hemera, he still hides his attraction to the young man. But when he catches the other shadowing him, Guri decides to take a chance. The only problem is, the man of his desire is leaving the planet soon. Possibly forever.

With obstacle after obstacle in their path, will Tayrym and Guri ever have a chance to be happy together? Or are they destined to fulfill their dreams light years apart?

  2. It's good he wants a serious relationship rather than a one-night stand.

    1. Yes. They've adored each other in secret for too long for them to have a one night stand.

  7. That situation - realizing a mutual attraction at the last minute after a long period of skirting around it - is so relatable. I hope they figure something out.

  8. They're so playful together, it's hard to believe the relationship might not work out because of Tayrym's ambitions. I hope they find a way to resolve things. They make such a cute couple. :)

  11. Nicknames pave the road to long term intimacy. Distance won't be a problem here, just an potential inconvenience. Nice character building, Jessica.
