    May 26, 2016 by Lyn

    There were few things more obvious than a Dragon taking off from the middle of a cornfield.

    Morgan Murdoch, Behold-the-Sprawl, hadn’t been out looking for Dragons. Hunting down Nedetakaei was not in her job description, inasmuch as she had a description or a job; she left that to the Mara and their offspring.… Read on

    So, what do you want to do with her in the meantime?”

    “Do with her?” The Fifthie turned from her boyfriend to finally look at Xaviera – up at her; she towered over both of them – before shrugging and looking back to Emrys.… Read on

    She – or he- had never been one to let bullies get to her – or him, and it bothered her how unhappy Kennie seemed lately, so Jaya made a point of sitting next to her in Biology class on Monday.… Read on

    I looked at you and somehow I knew
    On a day for singing,
    My heart went winging
    A picnic grove was our rendezvous

    Even Kai could tell that Conrad was still unhappy Sunday, and made even more so by her hurried whispered conference with Vlad and ‘Lisha.… Read on

    That drip of hurt, that pint of shame
    Goes away; just play the game!
    You’re living in America, at the end of the millennium
    You’re living in America; leave your conscience at the tone

    “Shahin cy’Pelletier, we Belong each to the other, for all time, unending.” She’d stared at him for a moment, her ears ringing, her lip bleeding, her world rearranging.… Read on

    No more succubus powers.

    Manira wasn’t in her room Saturday night. She’d tried to avoid the orders Ambrus had given her (while at the same time trying to ignore how much it galled, that a Kept she’d hoped to Own was givingher orders), but they locked her in as tightly as if she herself had been Kept, locked her as tightly as the oaths she’d sworn to the original Manira.… Read on

    Mother knows best
    Listen to your mother
    It’s a scary world out there

    Things had been tense around Ty since the cy’ree meeting, and Jamian didn’t know how to fix things. He’d tried everything he could come up with – short of breaking down and crying, or switching into girl form and letting Ty do what he so clearly wanted to – to make things better, but he’d only managed to get them so far as not-horrible.… Read on

    And your wise friends might say
    This is how we survive
    But I know in my own mind
    Can’t you see it’s a clever disguise?
    This friendly advice

    She hadn’t managed to get Conrad a new collar on Thursday after all; she’d spent the evening being fussed over, aching and sore and painfully pensive.… Read on

    What binds a fabric together
    When the raging shifting winds of change keep ripping away?
    Draw a line in the sand and then make a stand

    She wouldn’t admit to nerves, but she found Emrys’ hand even more comforting than normal as they walked to the gym.… Read on

    Wednesday: Kendra

    Kendra sat in the corner of Ofir’s room, quietly, so quietly, watching him have fun with his friends. Rowan, Wyatt, and Aneislis were over, and Rand, and Rafe with Renata; they were drinking beer, playing video games and gossiping about the rest of the school.… Read on

    Let’s get down to business
    I don’t got no time to play around

    No-one would ever say that cy’Linden turned down any opportunity for a party.

    Jamian settled into a corner as the suite filled up again, startling himself by being grateful when Agatha showed up.… Read on

    You ain’t never had a friend like me
    Can your friends do this? Can your friends do that?
    Can your friends pull this out their little hat?
    Can your friends go, poof?

    “…and then after I get back from training, we’ll go get you another collar.… Read on

    For all together, a team can weather, any storm they may go through.
    Yes, teamwork, can make a dream work,
    Can make the greatest dreams come true

    She tried to pretend she wasn’t clinging to Emrys’ hand as they walked down the hall, and was stupidly grateful for the fact that he seemed to be clinging every bit as tightly, and ignoring it every bit as studiously.… Read on


  14. Interlude: Nydia

    May 25, 2016 by Lyn

    Nydia still wasn’t sure how she felt about Tuesday night D&D. On the one hand, Agatha left her alone; on the other hand, so did Dysmas. She could have understood it as “guy time;” she’d had foster-fathers who were like that about their football, no women allowed in the room.… Read on

    If he ever hurts you
    True love won’t desert you
    You know I still love you

    Ty was waiting in the living room when Jaya got home, a textbook open on his lap that he was clearly ignoring, the TV on to something he was also clearly ignoring.… Read on

    Feelings
    Nothing more than feelings

    She was already Jaya, so she went that way to Professor VanderLinden’s office after PE. She was going to miss seeing Kendra in Eperu, and, considering the mess she’d made of things trying to jasfe Kailani’s hugr, she was a bit nervous about spending two weeks studying the new Word, but, it seemed, after two weeks, they were going to move on to their next Word whether they wanted to or not.… Read on

    I bet you got pushed around
    Somebody made you cold
    But the cycle ends right now
    ‘Cause you can’t lead me down that road

    Kai shook her head, trying to clear the memory of Taro on fire. What must it be like, to have a boyfriend who could do that?… Read on

    Their children’s hell will slowly go by
    And feed them on your dreams
    The one they picked, the one you’ll know by
    Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry

    The more they talked about abused Kept, the more Kai found herself looking around at her fellow students, searching for signs of abuse.… Read on

    A week without you
    Thought I’d forget
    Two weeks without you and I
    Still haven’t gotten over you yet

    She’d insisted she could make it through classes. She couldn’t hide in her room forever, and she hated to look so fragile.… Read on

    May 23, 2016 by Lyn

    Channing knocked on Carter’s door nervously Sunday evening, hoping either Kendra or Callista would be able to make it. Nikolai had said he’d be there, but Eris was impossible to pin down on plans, no-one had been able to find Shahin, and the other two members of their cy’ree both had rather controlling Keepers.… Read on

    Trying to keep up with you
    And I don’t know if I can do it
    Oh no I’ve said too much
    I haven’t said enough

    The chagrin washing off of the other girl told her she’d been right to bring it up.… Read on

    And if at once we saw the ties that bind us all the sight would blind us
    Everybody needs a helping hand – Everybody needs a friend
    Everybody needs to be the one with a helping hand to lend

    Kai wasn’t really sure how she felt about standing here in what she was finally admitting was her living room, talking to – arguing with – Agatha’s friends.… Read on

    Go with peace and love
    Gather up your tears, keep ’em in your pocket
    Save them for a time when you’re really gonna need them

    She let Emrys knock on the door to Mabina-and-Cassidy’s suite, glad she’d grabbed his left hand, because she couldn’t quite let herself let go.… Read on

    May 23, 2016 by Lyn

    He didn’t want to deal with Manira. She was, all things considered, the last person he wanted to see, and he’d put it off as long as he felt was reasonable, and then put it off longer after that.

    He wanted to deal with the raw spots in his memories, now that he had some leisure time with which to do so.… Read on
