    The Evil League of Evil
    Is watching, so beware

    Ofir glanced around at the assembled group and swallowed the lump in his throat. Ardell regarded him with casual disinterest, but he knew how quickly the gleam in that lazy tiger’s eye could turn predatory.… Read on

    But that’s okay
    ‘Cause the balance of power’s maintained that way
    Who’s next?

    No one seemed likely to stop them, so he led her to a nook he’d found away from most people, but still, technically, public space. “Everything okay?”

    “What do you mean?” she answered quickly.… Read on

    I gotta take a risk
    Take a chance
    Make a change

    Jamian, staring at his dismal lack of notes, was beginning to think that most of his fellow Fifth Cohort never really paid any attention to anything except, possibly, their boyfriends or girlfriends (and, in some cases, their Changes; with Yngvi’s horns, ears, and tail having come in, it seemed that everyone left at the school, at least, had Changed).… Read on

    If everything was different, you’d be my man.
    Sometimes I wish we were more than just friends

    For all the drama of the trip, it was really a lot of fun. Kai leaned back in the bus, between Taro and Nydia, where she’d been most of the vacation, and pondered how fun it was to have friends, to really be able to hang out with people who didn’t hate her.… Read on

    It’s not all that glitter is gold, half the story has never been told
    And now you see the light, you stand up for your right
    Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights

    She missed Emrys’ certainty. Playing off of him, there was never any room for wavering or doubt; with him at her back, she knew where she was going.… Read on


  6. Interlude: Aelgifu

    June 15, 2016 by Lyn

    Lunch on Friday was uncomfortable and quiet; Yngvi was still in the infirmary, dealing with a Change that looked suspiciously similar to Ayla’s (another thing to blame Aelfgar for), which left her with the table of awkward. Emrys was cranky and pretending not to be, Xaviera sullen and nervous, and Ioanna jittery, so Ayla focused on calming thoughts, the way she did, sometimes, when Shahin was having a bad day, and held Io’s hand tightly.… Read on

    The message is clear but it’s hard to hear
    So listen to what we say
    What do you know?

    Events and upperclassmen had conspired to keep Jamian and Kai from completing their rounds of the Fifth Cohort, but with so many students missing, it seemed a good time to try.… Read on

    Every move you make
    Every vow you break
    Every smile you fake
    Every claim you stake
    I’ll be watching you

    They were all still reeling from the mess at the Capitol the day before. Even Shahin had folded in on herself, Carter and Channing were cautious and embarrassed seeming, only Taro seeming pretty much himself.… Read on

    I wish the real world
    Would just stop hassling me

    They were something of a ragtag group, Shahin mused, as they headed out to the Texas State Capitol on the fourth day of their trip. The Fifth Cohort were adjusting well enough to being back out “in the world;” they’d only been in Addergoole for a couple months, after all.… Read on

    Her heart was pounding as she crept through the halls. Last night, she hadn’t pushed it. Mistress had just left, and Master was cranky. But it had been long enough that it should be safe, and she needed as much time as she could get, for her plan to work.… Read on

    This flame that burns inside of me
    I’m hearing secret harmonies
    It’s a kind of magic

    The school seemed empty with two cy’rees gone. In the suite, it was as if nothing had changed – everyone who came to hang out was cy’Linden anyway.… Read on

    No one’s gonna say that it’s easier losin’
    Touch with who we need when it’s lonelier on the outside
    Everybody’s on the food chain

    Kai hadn’t been sure what she’d been expecting, but nothing was going the way it ought to except the signs at the field trip sites.… Read on

    The dark sorceress really was a good look on her, Shahin mused as she studied herself in the hotel room’s full-length mirror. As it was properly Halloween now, they were all changing back into their costumes for a night out on this small town.… Read on


  14. Interlude: Kendra

    The toga wasn’t that bad, now that Kendra had gotten used to it. Of course, now that she’d gotten used to it, the night, and the dance, were over, Ofir was a little bit tipsy and beginning to lose the edges of his senatorial drapings, and they were away from the safety of the crowd and back to their room.… Read on

    Come and dance on our floor
    Take a step that is new
    We’ve a loveable space that needs your face
    Three’s company too

    When Ty was putting effort into it, he could be a really sweet, attentive guy (or girl). And in the last few days, he’d been putting a lot of effort into it.… Read on

    Kai’s skirt was shorter than she liked, but Mabina had made it for her, and she didn’t want to seem ungrateful. She tugged the blue-and-white gingham a little lower, and checked her watch. “We’re late,” she grumbled.

    “Fashionably late,” Mea corrected her, still fussing with her own hair, which had been poofed out into a golden-dyed halo around her head.… Read on

    The trees around them seemed to sway maliciously in the dark, reaching down towards them. A deep red light glowed as if from far away, coming closer, closer. Strange hoots and howls surrounded them, echoing through the trees. Shahin braced herself, set the cowl of her robe properly around her shoulders, and smiled at her demon lover.… Read on


  18. Interlude: Magnolia

    June 7, 2016 by Lyn

    It was funny, Magnolia mused, how you could share a school and classes with someone for three years and barely talk. Cohort or no, Adrian and she hadn’t moved in the same circles (they were both something-like-friends with people the other one had Kept, but that really didn’t count.… Read on

    I owe it all to the mistake he made back then
    I owe it all to my girl’s ex-boyfriend

    Having a cy’Linden hermaphrodite for a significant other and Keeper was, Jaya mused, weird. Not that she had a lot to compare it to, but even Ty’s exes seemed to think being Owned by him was a little odd.… Read on

    We can never know about the days to come
    But we think about them anyway
    And I wonder if I’m really with you now
    Or just chasin’ after some finer day

    “‘The escarpment’s scenic canyons were home for Indians of several cultures, including the Folsom culture of more than 10,000 years ago,’” Kai read excitedly.… Read on

    I can’t make my own decisions
    Or make any with precision
    Well maybe you should tie me up
    So I don’t go where you don’t want me

    Shahin was trying to ignore the fact that she would be leaving Emrys for two weeks, but situations didn’t seem to want to allow her to do so.… Read on


  22. Prelude: Morgan

    June 7, 2016 by Lyn

    Morgan had finally found a way into the wards, and had spent a long, boring and unfruitful Saturday exploring wheatfields and nosing around farmsteads before she found the proper place, a barn that seemed to be wrong, too sturdy and a bit too clean.… Read on
