No Filter - Multipurpose Fruit #RainbowSnippets #LGBTQIA

Another Snippet from No Filter - a Checking Him Out / Hiding Behind The Couch crossover (the first being Hiding Out), featuring Matty (CHO) and Libby (HBTC).

Brief background: Libby and Matty first met in Hiding Out, when Libby was fifteen and Matty was an undergrad dance student. No Filter is a year later; it’s a very early work in progress, and it’s a friendship story, not a romance.

This snippet is from Matty’s point of view. Noah is Matty’s SO.
“Pew.”

“Huh?”

“Pew, pew!”

Noah peered over the top of my phone and held up his apple. “Want me to put it on top of my head?”

I grinned. “Yeah. I can boomerang it.” I turned the banana side on and got ready to launch.

“Maybe not.” Taking a huge bite out of the apple, Noah went back to reading off my phone.

Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).

In this group you'll find anything from romance and historical fiction to mystery and YA. The common thread is that every story's main character identifies as LGBTQ+. The snippets could range from zero flames to full-on sexytimes, anything goes content-wise. The only rule is snippets will be 6 sentences long–one for each color in the Pride flag.

Thanks for reading,

  1. Cute scene -- gives a new meaning to "food fight." But why is Noah reading Matty's phone?

    1. LOL, I suppose it does! :) He's not reading it for sinister reasons, by the way. I'll try to cover it in a future snippet.
