  1. Interlude: Ambrus

    0

    June 30, 2016 by Lyn

    Ambrus had always found Shira Pelletier a little bit intimidating. Something about the way she looked at people – men, adult men, really, and she was one of the few that counted him in that category – made him antsy.

    Today, it took an effort of will to knock on her door.… Read on

    Come on now, try and understand
    The way I feel under your command

    “I think it’s time for another party.” Ty flopped bonelessly on the bed and flipped open a notebook. “What do you think?”

    “A party?” Jamian closed his own notebook; he wouldn’t get any work done as long as Ty was discussing that sort of thing.… Read on

    And if it gets heavy
    You can’t keep it steady
    Remember the things you been told
    Who taught you to live like that

    Kai kissed Conrad good-bye twice as she got ready for training with the Thorne Girls, then a third time on her way out into the suite, where she paused to slip on her sneakers.… Read on

    They gave me a life that’s not so easy to live
    And then they sent me on my way
    I left my love and forgot my dreams
    I lost them all along the way

    Shahin didn’t want to come off as giddy and dippy, to gush like a teenager (Shahin, her mind reminded her dryly, you are a teenager), so she spent time at lunch focusing on her breathing and, when that wasn’t helping the urge to sing out “we’re getting married!… Read on


  5. Interlude: Conrad

    June 30, 2016 by Lyn

    Something was on Kai’s mind – several somethings, knowing her, but enough this time that she was obviously distracted, barely cooing at Mabina’s twins and retreating to their bedroom as soon as dinner was over.

    He followed close behind her, barely excusing himself from the table, to see what she was up to.… Read on

    The more you know
    The more you feel
    The more you’ll understand

    “…so, since we were done anyway, I promised not to distribute any more this year. But it seems our secret is out of the bag.” Kai flopped bonelessly on the couch in Jamian’s suite.… Read on

    Gotta know who’s got your back
    Because they’re right in front of you
    Because they’re telling you the truth

    After the mess with Nydia – and Kailani was terrified, now, that she’d either gotten the girl in trouble or managed to raise Aggie’s ire again – she and Jamian had decided that some students were just easier to talk to in class.… Read on

    Is this in my head?
    I don’t know what to think

    “So nice of the weather to cooperate for us,” Emrys said, leaning back against the bark of the great oak and smiling as if at some private joke. Since Shahin was fairly certain that he didn’t have the Words to Work the weather, she wondered if, instead, the weather was controlled around here.… Read on


  9. Interlude: Dysmas

    June 29, 2016 by Lyn

    Dysmas gave Nydia one last reassuring pat and headed into the living room, reading the thick document the Fifths had given his Kept. It really was quite thorough; he wondered, idly, where they’d gotten all of this information.

    Anatoliy was sitting on the couch, flipping through channels disinterestedly.… Read on

    I know what you’re doing
    I see it all too clear

    Kai knocked this time, seeming in a bit of a rush to get away from the giant – not that Jamian could really blame her.

    “Come in,” came a lazy voice from inside.… Read on

    And you can ride clean, shorty you ain’t gotta walk
    But it’s still one rule, player don’t get caught

    “Clear,” Kailani whispered, the breeze she seemed to be talking to ruffling her hair. If he didn’t know better, Jamian would think she was enjoying this.… Read on

    What does it mean?
    I ask you
    What does it mean?
    I recall seeing the pair of you returning with your aeosthena.

    For her first few days back, Kailani had little time to think of the strange Ellehemaei and her stranger comment to Shahin.… Read on

    Something’s made your eyes go cold
    C’mon, c’mon, don’t leave me like this
    I thought I had you figured out
    Something’s gone terribly wrong

    Shahin hugged her cy’ree-mates goodbye – Kendra and Callista were already beginning to shut down, to close up – and hurried down the hall, forgoing seemliness for speed.… Read on


  14. Interlude: Mabina

    June 28, 2016 by Lyn

    Mabina frowned at the closing door. Kailani had been home for less than a day, and she was already heading off, talking in whispers to the Daeva cy’Linden, Jamian. This boded ill. Perhaps it was time for a gentle, motherly nudge in the right direction.… Read on

    You never know who’s planning to jack
    That’s why I’m trying to warn you people
    Watch your back!

    Jamian bustled about the suite Sunday morning, full of excitement. The field trip was due back today, and he couldn’t wait to talk to his friends again, hear about everything they’d seen and done, and find out who had won the final challenge

    “Hey.” He hadn’t even realized Ty was awake yet until he was there, standing in the living room in his sweatpants, looking upset.… Read on

    This is our iron council
    The last antagonist
    Standing strong against the new world

    “Why exactly have you been following us?” Kailani glared at the unassuming-looking woman, who smiled back, seeming unperturbed.

    “That is, of course, assuming that I have been.… Read on

    There’s no light at the end of the tunnel
    Can’t you know I’m looking for trouble
    Obviously, it’s been looking for me

    “Are they supposed to be… all up in my face like that?” Kai frowned uncertainly at the way the bodice squeezed in and up her chest.… Read on

    Yo, you wanna hit us? We can hit back
    If you talk that talk, you got’s to live that.
    This is self defense

    Shahin had gotten her shopping trip.  It had taken some coaxing, some cajoling, and the support of Carter, Kendra (given some practice, the mouse would have teeth. … Read on


  19. Prelude: Emrys

    June 23, 2016 by Lyn

    Emrys paused a second to catch his breath as his date for the dance emerged from her room. Who’s her fairy godmother? It was quite a makeover: her golden hair was done up artfully, rather than left in its typical straightforward ponytail; her torn jeans were now a radiant, glittering gown; even her shoes – yes, she had actually reproduced the look faithfully.… Read on

    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


  25. 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
