    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.

    The summer between years one and two of the Addergoole School

    “Are you sure?” Even as she asked, Ginger was setting out food on Maureen’s wide patio table.

    “I’m sure. You’re doing fine, dear, and people have relaxed around you. Now the trick is to make them think twice.”… Read on

  3. More Than Words


    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    School was settling in to a tolerable level of weird for Donegal. It wasn’t comfortable, exactly, but his friends seemed to be doing well, and there didn’t seem to be any choice but to do well, to, settle in, and wait for the Change.… Read on

  4. All You Zombies


    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    “There’s something wrong with this place,” Aella insisted, for what had to be the millionth time. Next to her, Amanada took a pause from painting her toenails to roll her eyes – for what had to be the 999,999th time.

    “You’re making mountains out of molehills, Aella,” she insisted, “and molehills out of thin air.”… Read on

  5. Some Like it Hot


    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    Year One of the Addergoole School

    It took Ginger Cayenne a week to end up crying in Maureen’s kitchen. The former madam was patient with the new teacher as she sniffled, supplying her with ginger snaps, laced coffee, and tissues before finally asking, “Now, what’s wrong, dear?”… Read on

  6. Faith Alone


    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    On the first week of the first year of the Addergoole School

    “It’s going to be strange here,” Donegal’s father warned him, with the pinch-faced frown that he got when talking about the boarding school.

  7. Ripples


    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    On the first day of the first year of the Addergoole School

    The years had been kind to Ambrus, but he hadn’t noticed how kind, or how many years, until he stood in the hallway, watching the first cohort of Addergoole students flowing past him.… Read on

    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    Directly after In the Hall of the Elf Queen

    The puppy had, after an hour or two of driving, stopped whimpering. Caspian had put her in the back seat of his Avalon, still bound and with the addition of a gag, and thrown a blanket over her to conceal her.… Read on

  9. In the Hall of the Elf-Queen


    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    Sometime around the 1st year of the Addergoole School:

    The Hunters had brought in new captives, and so the Elf Queen was holding court. And because Tasiankia was holding court, Caspian and Regan were there.

    Regan, of course, fought him every inch of the way, but Caspian knew which side his bread was buttered on, and by extension, his sister’s bread and butter, so they were there, in their finest, the geas laid on Regan so clever that not the sharpest seer could detect it, so strong that even his sister’s rock-hard revolve could not crack it.… Read on
