  1. A Christmas Switch


    December 25, 2016 by Lyn

    This is a repost story originally posted in November of 2013.  It’s not currently canon – but it might become so, in the rewrite.

    It takes place in Year 5 of the Addergoole School, on Christmas.

    “This year, for the day of Christmas, we are going to do something different.”… Read on

  2. CYOA – Richard: Attempt to negotiate further


    August 15, 2016 by Lyn

    (go back)

    You don’t really need to look to Coy for his reaction, but you do anyway, out of courtesy, since you’re speaking for him, as usual. He shakes his head no, although, to your surprise, it doesn’t seem to be a very enthusiastic no.… Read on

  3. CYOA – Richard: Ask what they want


    August 15, 2016 by Lyn

    (go back)

    When you come down to it, dealing with the Thorne Girls is a lot like dealing with Rozen or Barem or Ib; they’re just more pleasant to look at.

    “We just want to go to the Arcade, Acacia.… Read on

  4. CYOA – Richard: Try to talk your way through them


    August 15, 2016 by Lyn

    (go back)

    Try to talk your way through them “Well, hello, Acacia, Massima. Looking… sharp, as usual.” Fierce and perfectly dressed, these girls make skin-tight denim look like high fashion. “Sharp” is as accurate a word as you can muster, even with your most charming smile to buffer it.… Read on

  5. CYOA – Richard: Leave, and go to the Arcade


    August 14, 2016 by Lyn

    (go back)

    On an ordinary day, it’s a simple walk down the hall and then down some stairs to get to the Arcade. The school isn’t that crowded; some days you can make it down there without running into anyone at all.… Read on

  6. Twists


    August 7, 2016 by Lyn

    Just a bit after Plus ça change

    The weather had finally begun to turn nice, a week after Dagny had brought Melchior home from the market. It was one of those rare stunning days, the sort that made you stop working just to enjoy it for a few hours, and Jamian was doing just that, leaning against a fence post and sunning himself.… Read on

  7. Seek and Ye Shall Find


    August 6, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place immediately after Looking for Trouble.

    “Just because Tya didn’t want you anymore,” Massima was purring, as Shiva got close enough to hear, “doesn’t mean you’ve got what it takes to hold your own around here.”

    “And you would know, of course,” Nikita was replying, his voice lazy, velvet over barbs, “what it takes to survive intact as a Kept.… Read on

  8. Oversight


    August 4, 2016 by Lyn

    Year Five of the Addergoole School, at the time of Book Eight

    “Mind your left, Girl Scout!” Acacia was snapping out orders as Luke walked into Doug’s training hall. Against the back wall, Allyse shouted catcalls and math problems, trying, it seemed, to distract Kailani, who was shifting and twisting in an elaborate dance to avoid Sima’s weapons.… Read on

  9. Blending In


    August 3, 2016 by Lyn

    Early October, Year 5 of the Addergoole School 

    This story discusses non-consensual sex in flashbacks. 

    Finnegan was getting very good at being invisible. It didn’t take much, around the Thornes; they weren’t like he’d heard some of the other Keepers were, more like lazy tigers.… Read on

  10. Hooked


    August 2, 2016 by Lyn

    Year Five of the Addergoole School, immediately after Catch of the Day

    He managed to get a little bit of sleep; the floor was hard, but he was tired, and, once an eternity or two went by without Allyse dragging him out of his hidey-hole, the exhaustion took over, and he dozed off .… Read on

  11. Catch of the Day


    August 2, 2016 by Lyn

    Year Five of the Addergoole School, Hell Night

    He probably should have stayed in his room, but he was hungry, and he’d never let a couple blown bulbs scare him before, or a few creeps playing Hallowe’en a few weeks early.… Read on

  12. Transcendence


    August 2, 2016 by Lyn

    Year Five of the Addergoole School

    She wasn’t sure why they came to the dances, but Allyse had insisted. After three years, she’d learned to listen when their seer insisted on something.

    They weren’t going to pick up boys, that was for sure, although Sima was still glancing hungrily at Conrad when she thought no-one was looking.… Read on

  13. Acceptance


    August 1, 2016 by Lyn

    Year Four of the Addergoole School, Day One

    Back home. The school felt more like that every year, even with its restrictions and annoying requirements. Back where they ruled the halls. Back where she could be herself. Back where everyone knew why they should be afraid of her.… Read on

  14. Discovery


    July 31, 2016 by Lyn

    Year Three of the Addergoole School, Day One

    Being home for a month had been too weird. Allyse’s skin felt itchy, working around the layers of geasa that were at once unnecessary and far too confining. She’d wanted to ask her mother about Addergoole.… Read on

  15. Descent


    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    Year Two of the Addergoole School, Day One


    “This fucking sucks.” The lean blonde girl flopped down on her suitcases, her ponytail bobbing in punctuation.

    “It blows.” The second girl, dark where the first was fair but every bit as lean and muscular, echoed the motion, sitting on her own suitcase.… Read on

  16. Chapter 182b: Kailani


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn


    Every gaze in the gym was suddenly on Acacia. The Thorne leader was frowning, both hands up.

    “Oh, hell no, you’re not stopping this now, Cay, this was your plan. I get the boy, I get the baby, we can get out of here at the end of the year together.… Read on

  17. Chapter 182: Kailani


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    Now maybe
    Well some will say your life was sad
    But you lived it anyway
    And so maybe
    Your friends can stand around and watch you crumble
    As you fall into the ground

    Second Thursday in April, 2000

    Family trees and genetic charts were still swirling in Kai’s head a week later.… Read on

  18. Chapter 170: Kailani


    July 15, 2016 by Lyn

    There was no use trying not to be nervous. The last time she’d gone up against Agatha, she’d gotten herself raped and her crew beaten up. She hadn’t brought her crew along this time, had only brought Conrad along because he’d insisted.… Read on

  19. Chapter 164: Kailani


    July 12, 2016 by Lyn

    Much stronger now the second time around ’cause
    What can you do to me now?

    Ice candles were, Kai was discovering, harder than they looked. They didn’t want to stay in form, and when they did, they wanted to melt.

    Like everything else in this place.… Read on

  20. Chapter 155: Kailani


    July 5, 2016 by Lyn

    Don’t you know, it’s not easy
    When you gotta walk upon that line
    That’s why – you need
    That’s why – this is what you need

    Kai clutched her bag of gifts nervously as she headed to the gym on what would normally be their training time.… Read on

  21. Chapter 146: Kailani


    June 30, 2016 by Lyn

    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

  22. Chapter 143: Kailani


    June 29, 2016 by Lyn

    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

  23. Interlude: Ofir


    June 21, 2016 by Lyn

    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

  24. Chapter 118: Shahin


    June 7, 2016 by Lyn

    And just in time
    In the right place
    Suddenly I will play my ace

    She’d done a good job of faking confidence when they started the challenge, but inside, Shahin had been a mess of nerves. She wanted this to work, but they weren’t the brightest cy’ree by a long shot, and they had so many weak links, links that could be yanked at any point by their Keepers or by their old damage.… Read on

  25. Chapter 98: Kailani


    May 25, 2016 by Lyn

    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
