  1. Interlude: Aelgifu and Ioanna

    1

    August 31, 2015 by Lyn

    “Nervous?” Yngvi untied her tie and retied it, smoothing the knot with no apparent qualms about being that close to her, and no apparent interest in the same.

    “Terrified,” Aelgifu admitted. “I’ve never been this ‘out’ before, you know? I’ve never been out at all.”

    “Mm-hrmm,” he said noncommittally.… Read on


  2. Chapter 52b: Shahin

    1

    August 31, 2015 by Lyn

    Gotta get ahold of your man
    Better get him while you can
    Good to be a lion instead of a lamb
    Use what you got, take the upper hand

    She lay under him, content and sated, wondering at the tenderness in his touch.… Read on

    Are you an angel?
    Am I already that gone?
    I only hope that I won’t disappoint you

    Shahin woke early Saturday morning, blessedly not from bad dreams, and lay soaking in the warmth of Emrys’ presence.

    This was the last morning it would be like this, the last morning she’d wake up in his bed wearing nothing but her gloves and his collar.… Read on


  4. Interlude: Manira

    1

    August 31, 2015 by Lyn

    Something was wrong in the halls. In the whole school, really, although she couldn’t taste it in her dorm room. Manira wandered through the school with seeming aimlessness, barely noticing the other students, occasionally tasting the air like a snake looking for dinner.… Read on


  5. Chapter 51b: Jamian

    1

    August 31, 2015 by Lyn

    ‘Cause it’s gonna be the future soon
    And I won’t always be this way
    When the things that make me weak and strange get engineered away

    Jamian glared at the tiny elf. “Being a hermaphrodite doesn’t make you unstable!” he said hotly.… Read on


  6. Chapter 51: Jamian

    August 31, 2015 by Lyn

    And I know there will be mistakes that I will make
    But I know none are worse than chances I don’t take
    Right before your eyes, I am changing

    Saturday morning found Jamian waking to much the same situation as the last two mornings had – alone in his own bed, under enforced house arrest, with a baby-sitter sitting watch over him.… Read on


  7. Chapter 50b: Kailani

    1

    August 31, 2015 by Lyn

    You can’t always get what you want
    But if you try sometimes you might find
    You get what you need

    Kai was more than a little dazed when she wandered out of Mabina and Cassidy’s room into the suite’s living room.… Read on


  8. Chapter 50: Kailani

    1

    August 31, 2015 by Lyn

    I can’t control…

    Control your temper

    My destiny

    She doesn’t see

    “I don’t understand,” Kailani complained. Mabina was doing her fairy godmother routine again, placidly modifying a dress that she’d pulled, improbably, out of her closet, using Kai as a dressmaker’s dummy.… Read on


  9. Interlude: Aelgifu

    1

    August 31, 2015 by Lyn

    “Thank you.” Ayla gratefully took the plastic cup from Alexander and held it with both hands, as if it could warm her up. She wasn’t cold, not physically – it was always comfortable down here, so far underground that weather didn’t seem to matter – but she was nervous and a little jittery.… Read on

    August 25, 2015 by Lyn

    We’re running with the shadows of the night,
    So baby take my hand, you’ll be all right

    “Hardly,” he chuckled. “There’s maybe a hundred of us here, out of six billion people. You don’t think you were chosen randomly?”

    She sighed, and looked mournfully at her empty glass.… Read on

    August 25, 2015 by Lyn

    So you think you got it all figured out
    You’re an expert in the field, without a doubt

    “Look nice tonight,” he’d said, rather perfunctorily. He’d backed off much of the cold, arrogant high-and-mighty treatment since her little bout of illness Thursday morning, so she’d been taken aback by the shortness of the comment, even though he softened it with a smile.… Read on


  12. Interlude: Emrys

    1

    August 25, 2015 by Lyn

    Shahin fled the Dining Hall, her pale complexion green around the edges.

    Emrys sighed, shaking his head, and turned back to his crew. “See what I mean? Definitely something strange, there.”

    Agatha raised an eyebrow. “Defective, you mean.”

    “I don’t think so.… Read on


  13. Chapter 48: Jamian

    1

    August 25, 2015 by Lyn

    Handful of complaints but I can’t help the fact
    that everyone can see these scars

    Jamian woke to Ty’s worried face no more than a few inches from his own. His head felt blissfully free of pain, and, even better, free of anyone else’s emotions, but it also felt clogged, as if he had cotton stuck in his ears.… Read on


  14. Chapter 47: Kailani

    August 25, 2015 by Lyn

    We open the latch on the gate
    Of the hole that we call our home
    Protect me from what I want

    “I don’t like this.” Conrad hurried alongside Kai as she walked, more briskly than was necessary, towards the gym.

    “I’m aware,” she told him.… Read on

    August 25, 2015 by Lyn

    And I need you like a heartbeat,
    But y’know you’ve got a mean streak

    This chapter comes directly after the third of the Dreams of Nothing and Everything bonus stories, and will be easier to understand if you first read those.Read on


  16. Prelude: Ty

    1

    August 24, 2015 by Lyn

    Pink Elephants

    Ty walked Jamian down the hall, trying to keep his emotions from leaking all over the place. From the strained, pale look on his lover’s face, he wasn’t doing so well.

    Not your lover. Not yet. Gods, don’t even think that when he’s like this, or he’ll run away faster than you can sneeze.Read on


  17. Exterlude: Caspian and Aelfgar

    1

    August 24, 2015 by Lyn

    If his current form allowed it, Caspian would have cackled with glee. Instead, he settled for a small squeak of joy as he danced under the lunchroom tables and around feet. This place Aelfgar had unwittingly brought him to – it was full of food.… Read on


  18. Interlude: Ambrus and Manira

    August 24, 2015 by Lyn

    “Go with it,” Reid had said. “Don’t fight her anymore, it’s just making you sick. So until we can figure out how she’s this powerful this young – and if she knows if she’s doing it or not – just go with the flow.”

    He’d tried to protest that Regine would object; Reid had ridden over his objections with a surprising amount of strength.… Read on


  19. Interlude: VanderLinden

    1

    August 24, 2015 by Lyn

    There’s a reason the Nedetakaei call their Daeva the Devourers. Mike stared woefully at his empty glass, wondering how many times he’d filled it. Too many, of course, for the middle of the day, and a work-day at that, and yet not enough.… Read on


  20. Chapter 45: Jamian

    1

    August 24, 2015 by Lyn

    Empathize, can I look through your eyes?
    I’ll find different paradigms

    The big biker thumped out of the room, brushing his hand over a dark-haired girl’s cheek. Seconds later, Kailani followed, her red hair like a banner behind her; her boyfriend – her Kept?… Read on


  21. Chapter 44: Kailani

    1

    August 21, 2015 by Lyn

    Oh, it’s like I started breathing on the night we kissed,
    And I can’t remember what I ever did before

    “…That’s how I’d solve it, at least.” Kai looked up shyly at Vlad, uncertain if she’d overstepped her bounds. People could get really touchy about help with their homework, sometimes, but he had asked.… Read on


  22. Chapter 43: Shahin

    August 21, 2015 by Lyn

    Girl you’re beautiful, you’re ’bout near perfect
    But I bet somebody’s already told you that

    By Wednesday, it had become routine to wake up in Emrys’ bed, to sit at his table with his horrid friends – with the horrible Agatha, the slightly less horrible Dysmas, their creepy pets, and the relatively nice Anatoliy – for meals, to time her conversations so that no-one really noticed that she didn’t speak unless she was spoken to.… Read on


  23. Interlude: Conrad (B-Side)

    1

    August 20, 2015 by Lyn

    The follow chapter includes sexual situations.

     

    He turned quickly, heading into the room without looking at Taro; he didn’t know what he thought, he could guess what he thought, he didn’t care what he thought. Conrad held the door for Kaia and closed it behind her.… Read on


  24. Interlude: Conrad

    1

    August 20, 2015 by Lyn

    Conrad was trying not to pace, while walking a circuit around the suite’s living room. Kailani had been gone longer than he found comfortable, even if the clock on the TV did say it had only been 15 minutes.

    Mabina and Cassidy had tried to talk to him, but he was wound too tightly to be decent company.… Read on


  25. Interlude: Solomon and VanderLinden

    2

    August 20, 2015 by Lyn

    Monday night found Reid and VanderLinden sipping brandy in Mike’s office, gossiping about their students and generally avoiding the topics that would set each other off. If they were careful, they could relax and pretend to be good friends until they were both happily buzzed.… Read on
