  1. Exterlude: Caspian

    Caspian chortled in glee as he took to the air carrying a double-fistful of pretty young things. Wouldn’t that just twist Aelfgar’s tail? He hadn’t expected the old man to have his own private stable of toys, but if any ashanevaei was going to, it made sense for it to be him.… Read on

    The halls had been nearly-abandoned earlier. Now there was no-one in them at all except Taro and Emrys, and the monster somewhere ahead of them.

    Next to him, Taro ran like a bull, head down, face flushed. Emrys surged forward, all speed and grace beside Taro’s implacable power.… Read on

    You gotta go for what you know
    To make everybody see
    In order to fight the powers that be

    Jaya listened to the crew talk, content for a bit to snuggle into Ty’s embrace and listen. But something that Shiva and Niki had said was pricking at the back of her mind.… Read on

    She stumbled more than walked into the bedroom, holding onto Conrad, refusing to look behind her at Anatoliy until they got to the bed. He lingered sheepishly in the doorway, hands folded in front of him.

    “Come in,” she murmured, feeling weird about doing it in Conrad’s room.… Read on

    War, huh, yeah
    What is it good for
    Absolutely nothing

    Shahin was a roil of conflicting emotions as they walked with Anatoliy, down the same path they’d walked earlier today. She wanted to hug the giant, and tell him everything would be okay, but if she was understanding him correctly… well, she wasn’t sure that could be okay.… Read on

    Anatoliy sat in his room for what seemed like an eternity after returning Kailani to her crew. At first, he just sat on his bed, head in his hands, and thought. Finally he stood, moving about the room. He did some busywork for Solomon; tidied his desk; made his bed.… Read on

    Young teacher, the subject
    Of schoolgirl fantasy

    Mark – and Ivette and Joff, both of them flush with energy and giggling like kids – walked Jamian back to Ty’s suite. Jamian, who had watched them drawing energy from the very angry, flammable Emrys, hadn’t been able to participate: VanderLinden and Ty had spent long enough hammering home that draining people was a bad thing that he seemed unable to do it at all now.… Read on

    But I’ve got to get a move on with my life
    It’s time to be a big girl now
    And big girls don’t cry

    Aren’t Mentors suppose to help? Kai wandered out of Dr. Regine’s office, feeling more despondent than when she’d entered.… Read on

    Does the pain weigh out the pride?
    And you look for a place to hide?

    Tolly’s arms were surprisingly gentle and comforting as he carried her through the halls. He was so big, it was like being a child again… no.… Read on

    It was a nice kiss. It was nice, for a moment, to just relax in his heat. But they still had a lot of things to resolve, and they couldn’t resolve them by kissing. Eventually, she had to stop kissing him.… Read on

    What kind of debacle had they walked into, Shahin wondered, looking around the infirmary. People lay everywhere, on every flat surface large enough to hold a body. They were so overworked that a student, a Fifth Cohort at that, had been given an impromptu primer on healing by Doug to provide first aid.… Read on

    We are the energy
    We are the same as you
    Take everything you need

    He wasn’t sure why he was nervous. The big blonde Viking, Mark, wasn’t a bad guy, from all accounts; even if the first time Jamian had seen him, he’d been beating someone up, it had been in defense of a girl.… Read on

    Soon as we could see clearly through our big black eye,
    Man we lit up your world like the Fourth of July

    It happened so quickly, Kai didn’t have a chance to do anything until Taro had already charged forward. He’d been aiming, she assumed, for the horrible little woman Agatha, but she’d stepped out of the way and he had hit Shahin instead.… Read on

    Stand by your man
    And tell the world you love him

    When the dragon descended on the Village, the children hadn’t stood a chance, Shahin reflected sadly, gazing down at the carnage.

    The adults at least had some magic to protect them, but clearly it had been woefully inadequate.… Read on

    Mike had known Regine Avonmorea longer than anyone else had; in all those centuries, he’d never seen her as furious as she was now. He’d rarely seen her angry at all – there had been, a long time ago, a few moments of raw hurt, but that had been different, the lost confusion of a young woman.… Read on

    Never gonna give you up
    Never gonna let you down
    Never gonna run around and desert you

    She didn’t know why she’d decided to stay Jaya all day. It wasn’t comfortable, yet, and the way people looked at her was weird – not like a freak, like she’d always feared, but like a piece of meat.… Read on

    Do you know what’s worth fighting for?
    When it’s not worth dying for?

    “Are you feeling all right, Kai?” Mabina asked, as breakfast Tuesday was winding to a close. “You’ve barely said anything.”

    “Mm?” She looked up from her comfortable pillow of Conrad’s shoulder.… Read on

    I’d pay any price just to get you
    I’d work all my life and I will
    To win you I’d stand naked, stoned and stabbed
    I’d call that a bargain

    “Thank you again, Professor Pelletier.” The world was still more than a little cockeyed, but Shahin felt more confident as she left her newly-minted Mentor’s office.… Read on

    Manira found herself staring at the closed door long after Jamian and her friends had left. The little goblin was tasty, so sure he was hated that the slightest bit of affection would make him hop with joy. If she survived this, perhaps she’d turn her attention to him, or his friend with the tusks.… Read on

    “Well, that was interesting.” Nikolai’s wry understatement broke the uncomfortable statement. “He’s right about one thing, though.”

    “The collar?” Melchior nodded. “He is. It would save you trouble, Ja…”

    Friends, lovers or nothing
    We can really only ever be one

    Another day, another drama
    Guess I can’t see the harm
    In working and being a mama

    “Where do you want to start?”

    It was a good question. There were so many holes in the patterns, so many problems, not to mention the more personal questions.… Read on

    These are the little children, the future in our hands
    When all God’s children on this earth inherit all our plans

    Transformation takes my place
    And just you keep it coming
    A feeling I ain’t never felt before

    They slept for a while; it was too early in the morning, and both of them too tired, for anything else. She dreamed, but her dreams were surreal and inconclusive, leaving her only with one clear image, of a teenage boy with his father’s stubborn chin and his mother’s nose.… Read on
