Saying goodbye before they begin Defender training \ Read a #WeWriWa snippet from TAYRYM #scifirom #LGBTQ #MMromance


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, Guri surprised Tayrym by telling him he'd decided to train to be a Defender with him. This weekend, Guri and Tayrym are getting ready to leave Hemera to begin their Defender training. *Edited from original to fit. (I know I'm skipping a lot, but I plan on posting from a new story in January, and I have a couple more important snippets I want to share before then.)

Guri smiled and gave a quick wave as he finished his farewell to the royal family. Sol had just arrived from the school, and Guri wanted to talk to him before he left the planet. Besides, Tayrym needed to be with the royal family more than him. Though Guri had suspected his mother wouldn't show up to say goodbye, Tayrym hadn’t stopped hoping she would have a change of heart. Instead, Queen Lalia, Prince Bryce, and Princess Gwenodyn were his family there to send him off.

“So, you’re really going through with this.” Sol raised his eyebrows before giving Guri a brief hug. “I thought you’d change your mind at the last minute, realize how homesick you’d be away from me.”

Guri chuckled and shook his head. “Yes, because you’re the greatest housemate ever; unfortunately, I like my boyfriend even more.”


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?

  3. I really like how you wrote about the royal family becoming Tayrym's when his bio family wasn't. Says a lot about tolerance.

    1. Yes, and as queen, Lalia is hoping to change to planets view on many things. Unfortunately it doesn't happen overnight. But, she will continue to lead by example. πŸ’œ

    1. Thank you, Veronica! Yes, he is going for the wrong reasons, but he also knows what he signed up for and he's more worried about Tayrym. πŸ’œ

  7. Leave taking is always so hard, and especially if one is estranged from his or her family. I hope the royal family's presence helps Tayrym.

    1. Yes, for sure. They've been a second family to him since he and Gwenodyn were very close friends. Though, that doesn't make it easier for Tayrym. πŸ’œ

  12. He has a family, and that's everything. I hope he finds peace, but I suspect there will be a lot of action in the meantime.
