  1. The End

    0

    April 1, 2018 by Lyn

    “I am bringing the Addergoole project to an end.” The room had been quiet. Now the auditorium was silent. “I am closing the school and releasing all of you here from all oaths to me. You no longer need work for me, teach for me, keep my secrets.… Read on

    “You’re not teaching them enough!” Rozen’s voice was a roar. He knew he was getting way too loud, and some part of him – the part that cared about the Bond – felt a little guilty about that.… Read on

    December 25, 2016 by Lyn

    This is a repost story originally posted in December of 2011.

    It takes place in Year 1 of the Addergoole School, on Christmas.

    December 25, 2016 by Lyn

    This is a repost story originally posted in November of 2013.  It’s not currently canon – but it might become so, in the rewrite.

    It takes place in Year 5 of the Addergoole School, on Christmas.

    “This year, for the day of Christmas, we are going to do something different.”

    The cafeteria fell silent, the whole room seeming to hold its breath.… Read on

    September 5, 2016 by Lyn

    For B, because I wanted something fun to write. 

    Set after Ty has left school. 


    “I think you’re going to like this club.”

    “How have you been in this town for a week, and you already know more clubs than I do?” Ty glared at Anise in only-half-feigned sulking.… Read on

    August 26, 2016 by Lyn

    This story is written for Nat Ford’s request, thanks to the “Addergoole Wants You” comments-for-fics promotion.


    Kai frowned at the charts in front of her: genealogies, descriptions, birth dates and years.  You could follow patterns easily enough down any given genealogy, but that wasn’t what was making her frown.Read on

    August 26, 2016 by Lyn

    Bowen was sitting in Yngvi’s room.

    He was sitting in another student’s room, without Aggie.  He kept fighting the urge to look over his shoulder, to look at the door.  Read on


  8. Bare Necks

    August 26, 2016 by Lyn

    This story is written for Rix Scaedu’s request, thanks to the “Addergoole Wants You” comments-for-fics promotion.  It follows Chapter 175.

     

    Of all the things he was expecting when wandering halls alone — Ardell, Baram, worried older cy’Lucas, woman like Massima — Yngvi had actually not been anticipating being bowled into by someone running full speed through the halls.Read on

    August 8, 2016 by Lyn

    Fifty years in the future:

    The bell attached to the northern foxhole rang just as Diane was sitting down to dinner. It was her day to monitor them, so she slipped on her coat, grabbed her rifle and a spare jacket, and hitched the horse up to the covered buggy.… Read on


  11. Retirement 2

    1

    August 7, 2016 by Lyn

    Fifty years in the future, Pennsylvania: “Now, I think you’d better tell me what you did to Regine.”

    As quickly as it had come, Rozen’s smile vanished, leaving him glowering down at Kai. She struggled to remember, again, that he was no threat to her.… Read on


  12. Retirement

    1

    August 7, 2016 by Lyn

    Fifty years in the future, Pennsylvania:

    In the sunlit warmth of her office, Kai studied the reports for the month. They’d admitted two new students, one of whom, the son of a maple farmer from the Green Mountains, had come with a crate of maple syrup to pay his tuition.… Read on


  13. Cleaning Up

    0

    August 7, 2016 by Lyn

    It had taken all of their family’s charm together and not a little bit of emotion-working, but they had gotten the crazed Eris asleep and tucked into a wagon, and cleared the battlefield of any incriminating evidence, before the witch-hunters showed.… Read on


  14. With Friends Like These…

    0

    August 7, 2016 by Lyn

    The pretty hermaphrodite, looking far too pretty and far too fae for the grubby soon-to-be-battlefield where they were standing, and far too poised for being wrapped in poison manacles and chains, shook its head woefully up at Shahin. “Regine is not the enemy, you know,” it tsk’d.… Read on


  15. Like Toy Soldiers…

    August 7, 2016 by Lyn

    “You are the vainest warrior I have ever known,” Willow complained cheerfully.

    “Thank you,” Shahin smiled. “Pass me that vambrace, would you?” Grinning, the girl complied.

    “At this rate, you’ll still be getting dressed when the monsters show up.” Her gibe had no heat in it; by this point, despite being nominally of different generations, the two were old friends.… Read on


  16. Twists

    August 7, 2016 by Lyn

    Just a bit after Plus ça change

    The weather had finally begun to turn nice, a week after Dagny had brought Melchior home from the market. It was one of those rare stunning days, the sort that made you stop working just to enjoy it for a few hours, and Jamian was doing just that, leaning against a fence post and sunning himself.… Read on


  17. Plus ça change

    1

    August 7, 2016 by Lyn

    Directly after Cobbled

    Dagny watched the interaction between her father and the young-looking man she’d just bought, caught between her confusion and her curiosity. Her dad seemed somehow different, younger, as if she was seeing him through Melchior’s memory instead of as he was now.… Read on


  18. Cobbled

    August 7, 2016 by Lyn

    Fifty years after Year Five of the Addergoole School, early Autumn, the Finger Lakes Region of what was once New York State.

     


    Faerie Cobbler.

    Only in the most private depths of his mind, and only on the days when his humor was particularly dark, did Jamian think of himself that way.… Read on


  19. Dating

    coat_of_armsVValentine’s Day, 2049, TeeBurg, in what was once New York State

    Jamian had a date.

    He couldn’t… no, he could remember his last date. Dagny’s mother. That had been nearly two decades ago, two long and dry decades, interspersed with Tya’s random and generally-unpredictable visits.… Read on


  20. Hoppy Easter

    August 6, 2016 by Lyn

    Easter, 2012

    It had been their private joke since their first Easter together, a joke that they initiated their children into early on: Aelgifu was their family’s private Easter Bunny (Cecily was the first to draw said iconic character for school with horns, causing an interesting and uncomfortable parent-teacher conference until they realized this particular teacher, at least, was Faded.… Read on


  21. Tricked

    August 6, 2016 by Lyn

    Halloween, 2011

    “Are you sure you’re all right on your own?”

    Cecily rolled her eyes at Mom Io, but only where she couldn’t be seen. “We’ll be fine, Mom. As long as Siggie behaves himself, everything will be all right.”

    “Me?” Siggie glared indignantly at her; at eight years old, her little brother was getting pretty full of himself.… Read on

    August 6, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place immediately after Looking for Trouble

    “Just because Tya didn’t want you anymore,” Massima was purring, as Shiva got close enough to hear, “doesn’t mean you’ve got what it takes to hold your own around here.”

    “And you would know, of course,” Nikita was replying, his voice lazy, velvet over barbs, “what it takes to survive intact as a Kept.… Read on

    August 6, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place at the end of the third week of the fifth year of the Addergoole School (after Chapter 49b)

    “Well, that was interesting,” Shiva murmured, as she and Niki meandered across the common area. She didn’t really want to talk to Magnolia, but, having made the lie, she had to follow through.… Read on


  25. Baby Blues

    August 6, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place early in the third week of the fifth year of the Addergoole School (during Book Three)
