    August 10, 2016 by Lyn

    Inventrix asks:
    Is it possible for a Faded to ever become un-Faded?

    Regine answers::

    That is, sadly, more a question of definition than one with a concrete scientific answer. It comes down to pinpointing what makes someone “Faded” and at what point they actually Fade, as it were, into humanity.… Read on

    Shutsumon asks:
    In situations where someone hasn’t twisted The Law to a pretzel (ie Outside Addergoole) how does the fact children belong to their mothers and students to their mentors work? We know that outside the school children and students can’t be owned… presumably because their mother/mentor already owns them.

    August 9, 2016 by Lyn

    Wsteria asks: Can you promise things to the universe, not a specific person? Or can you promise things to a person that have nothing to do with that person specifically?

    Inventrix asks Shahin: What are your three favourite outfits?

    August 9, 2016 by Lyn

    How dependent upon intention is the Law? For example, if someone jokingly says ‘I belong to you’ without meaning the words, are they bound nonetheless?

    0

    August 8, 2016 by Lyn

    To anyone who can answer: Some of the Workings appear to use Greek for some of the words. Is that traditional, a matter of taste, or is Classical language a required component?

    Reid Solomon answers:

    It is my understanding and belief that the Workings which we teach to the students in Addergoole, which are commonly those taught to us by our Mentors, and so on through the ages, came to prominence during the height of Greek civilization.… Read on

    August 8, 2016 by Lyn

    Do all fae and half-fae go through a Becoming? If not, is there something about Addergoole that prompts Becomings?

    Laurel Valerian answers:

    To answer any question about the Ellehemaei, the fae, you first have to understand that, in answering the question, we’re talking about “right now,” not, “the way things were;” more than that, we’re also talking about “the people we know,” not fae in other countries or other realms.… Read on

    To Mike: how would you characterize your relationship with Luke?

    Oh, gods, you’ve been talking to the giant bird again, haven’t you? I know you like him and all – I’m an incubus, dear, a Daeva. It’s my job to know these things – but talking to him is never a good idea.… Read on

    To Luca: who have you owned in your lifetime?

    Why did Ty grow up in Addergoole?

    Ty’s maternal parent, D.J., answers:

    Well, Ty didn’t grow up in the school, per se; we weren’t done retooling the building until the summer before the first students arrived.
