    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

    “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

    “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.”

    There was a possibility that today would be a quiet day.

    Read about the Addergoole Fourteen  

    “I’ve been wondering, Professor. Why Addergoole?”

    It wasn’t the primary thing on her mind, of course. They were studying an array of Change descriptions and, of apparently more interest to her Mentor, “inherent non-Working abilities,” something that Kai hadn’t really been aware existed.… Read on

    “Well.” Yngvi looked around the pod at the stocked-in supplies.

    “Well,” Ayla agreed, taking off her apron and throwing it into her room. “I think we have enough.”

    “Did you invite the entire school or the entire state?” he joked, studying the stacks of green muffins and the interesting-and-yet-appetizing-smelling green pizza.… Read on

    Christmas Break, Year Five of the Addergoole School

    Ty had given Jamian a choice. By this point, he’d learned how rare that really was, to be given clear-cut choices. It hadn’t made the decision all that much easier; in the end, what had decided him was the fear that he’d be sitting at the dinner table and switch from “him” to “her” in front of his stepfather.… Read on

    Reid sealed the last envelope, and stacked them neatly in a pile on his desk. There weren’t that many – he didn’t speak to his father, and his mother and siblings had proven far more human than he had. Of what few loves he had had through the decades, most were also gone, and a few simply wished not to be reminded of him.… Read on

    ‘Lisha woke smiling. That in itself was a miracle, but Vlad was hoping for more today. He’d been very secretive about his plans, telling her nothing more than “dress up nicely, something that will go well with your Mask.”

    That had been enough to trigger a flood of questions, but he’d managed to just smile and tell her “you’ll see.” Over and over again, until it was actually funny, her bouncing like a kid, “you’ll see.” His only other insistence, that Min spend the night in their room with them, that she’d found weird.… Read on

    She looked at the list of questions again. She’d made a good attempt at going through the other topics, but there was only one she really wanted to try for. She shouldn’t; it wasn’t her area of expertise, and her rare sessions with Regine had only begun to cover the topic, but how often did one get to delve into such a fun topic?… Read on

    “Mind your left, Girl Scout!” Acacia was snapping out orders as Luke walked into Doug’s training hall.

    It was worse than they’d feared.

    Considering the state of the boys’ former Kept, perhaps it had been naïve to expect better. Perhaps it was good they hadn’t show up to find them turned into serial killers.… Read on

    Year Five of the Addergoole School, at the time of Book Seven

    The doorbell rang while Ashley was doing the dishes after dinner. She wiped her hands on the towel, wished briefly, before the thought was subsumed beneath a wave of be-a-good-girl, that her roommates believed in more clothing on her than apron, panties, and high heels, and headed to answer the door with a wiggle in her walk just for them.… Read on
