  1. Exterlude: Aelfgar

    “Damn.” Aelfgar drained his glass and passed it back to Doug for a refill. The kid kept good whisky in stock, and he wasn’t stingy with it, either. “I fucked that one up pretty badly. And the damn thing got away from us.” Doug passed his glass back, and he took another long gulp.… Read on

    I just keep on dreaming
    But it’s cool cause we’re just friends

    Jamian had slept in his own bed Saturday night. He hadn’t slept well, or comfortably, but when he’d poked his head back into the suite after they left Elfred’s room, the cy’ree were still having their “meeting,” which looked more like a page out of a very exotic Kama Sutra than a study session.… Read on

    I used to know my place was the spot next to you
    Now I’m searching the room for an empty seat
    ‘Cause lately I don’t even know what page you’re on

    They’d stopped after Elfred Saturday, as they were a little uncertain about talking to Finnegan, and the next two people on the list were the two of them.… Read on

    I know in all we’ve said
    I finally know how it began
    It’s nothing that I can even explain

    “…Well fuck you too.” Emrys spun on his heel

    Shahin was glad she had hold of his hand; it was probably all that kept him from taking off.… Read on

    Friends will be friends
    When you’re in need of love they give you care and attention
    Friends will be friends
    When you’re through with life and all hope is lost

    Saturday morning came slowly for Shahin, wrapped in the warmth that was Emrys, safe in his arms, dreaming of a place by a river where everything was safe.… Read on

    May 16, 2016 by Lyn

    It had been days, almost an entire week, since she’d last talked to Dr. Regine and Ambrus. The succubus who was also Manira had gone about her life like normal over that week; the geasa wrapped around her didn’t allow her to do anything but.… Read on

    You’ve got to walk that road alone
    If you walk it at all
    Don’t follow me now
    I gave you all fair warning

    Their early success may, Jamian was forced to admit several doors later, have been a fluke. Not that the other stops hadn’t been informative, but they painted such contrasting pictures it was hard to find any truth in them.… Read on

    You got your friends, just like I got mine
    We might think a little differently
    But we got a lot in common you will see
    We’re just like you, only prettier

    When Ty had told him – when, tired but full of ideas, he’d left Kailani’s bedroom to slip into Ty’s bed late Friday night – that cy’Linden was having a cy’ree meeting Saturday, Jamian had been a little dubious.… Read on

    Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?

    “Okay, Kai, it’s been half an hour, and I’m out of string.”

    “But we’ve barely gotten anywhere!” She’d agreed, though, to stop after half an hour. Reluctantly, she planted her feet.… Read on

    My tears hold no weight
    If my commitment is only failure
    Repeat yesterday

    They weren’t the clothes she would have picked for herself, but they’d suffice to get them home. She didn’t want to let go of Emrys’ hand as they walked through the hall, but she found that was all she cared about.… Read on

    I’m not afraid of dying
    But I am afraid of losin’ you
    Maybe I’m addicted
    I’m out of control
    But you’re the drug
    That keeps me from dyin’

    She woke from a dreamless sleep to find the world too bright, too loud, and too sharp, the rough sheets against her skin unbearable.… Read on

    “The team of mixed cy’rees will consist of Kailani cy’Regina, Wren cy’Maureen, Nydia cy’DJ, Taro cy’Akatil, Caity cy’Akatil and Renata cy’Akatil.” Kaia had been sitting straight up in her chair since Regine started talking; when the Director listed off her team, she grabbed excitedly for Taro’s arm.… Read on

    If he don’t act right
    Trade him in
    If he breakin’ you down girl
    Trade him in

    Jamian thought about his conversation with Kailani all through eperu. He could have asked Professor Pelletier about the strange Word that he’d manifested, but something kept him quiet.… Read on

    One of these days you’re gonna reach out and find
    The one that you count on has left you behind


    Kai hadn’t made it to the library after Jamian left. She’d thought about it, but spending time with Conrad and the crew had seemed more important after the day they’d had.… Read on

    Late at night I toss and I turn and I dream of what I need
    I need a hero
    I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night

    Time had no meaning. Shahin woke, she slept. She shivered in the chill, and clung to the fleeting warmth of… something, it didn’t matter.… Read on

    May 14, 2016 by Lyn

    For all the excitement of the previous night, it hadn’t been a thrilling day for Mea. Classes proceeded as usual; even Kailani, whom she’d almost bonded with a little that morning, was back to snapping at her to keep away from her man.… Read on

    Jamian’s head was reeling by the time he headed back to Ty’s room. Keeping up with Kailani’s brain was like watching a hyperactive ferret on speed; no wonder her Kept had a lost look on his face sometimes. He hadn’t so much forgotten his discussion with Ty as lost it in the tumult… and then he let himself into their room.… Read on

    Am I supposed to be in love
    ‘Cause that’s what everyone else does
    I feel like I should be
    But I don’t know if what I’m thinking is quite enough
    So grab me by the collar

    “Come here.” Ty tugged Jamian lightly by the arm, pulling towards his bedroom.… Read on

    Does anybody out there want a second-hand heart?
    One that’s already broken in?

    Conrad looked uncomfortable, his tail drooping, as he took his seat back with the crew. Cassidy, facing him, picked up on it immediately.

    “Hey guys, what’s up?” His question seemed directed as much at Kailani as at Conrad.… Read on

    Will you figure out
    How you can change it
    And rearrange it
    And turn it all around?
    You will learn by trial and error

    She pulled him away from other people as soon as she could after class, her concern about the strange Word momentarily forgotten.… Read on

    Bring to me wisdom of age
    All that’s locked within the book of secrets
    I longed for the knowledge of a sage

    It seemed a little surreal to just go to classes on Wednesday like nothing had happened, but there was comfort to the routine, as well, that Kailani embraced.… Read on

    Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams
    Purge your thoughts of the life you knew before

    She woke a moment later, not certain she’d actually fallen asleep. There’d been some fear, right? And some pain. But all she felt now was warm and fuzzy, like she was wrapped in a giant blanket.… Read on

    But if you could give me
    Just one love, just one life
    Just one chance to believe in mine
    Just one love, just one life
    You’d bleed for me

    She was clean, tidy, and naked – the creature had left her one glove, but that just seemed an exercise in futility, so she’d added it to a neat pile of her clothing-remains – and more worried than she cared to admit, even to herself, by the time Emrys seemed conscious again.… Read on

    By the time Massima noticed his absence, Ambrus was two hours away, speeding down empty highways in Regine’s newest sleek performance car, just over the border into North Dakota. Better to ask forgiveness than permission. This time, he’d left the collar behind on purpose, hoping Regine would understand.… Read on

    So be it
    Threaten no more
    To secure peace is
    To prepare for war

    Jamian woke early; someone was pounding on Ty’s door. He shook Ty awake gently and padded over to the doorway, remembering to pull a robe on at the last minute.… Read on
