  1. Question: Pairs


    August 8, 2016 by Lyn

    Yngvi and Aelgifu are described as looking alike: are they the next Mabina / Cassidy?

    Dr. Caitrin answers:

    By “the next Mabina/Cassidy,” I’m going to assume you’re referring to Mabina & Cassidy’s psychic and emotional bond that makes them the mental equivalent of conjoined twins, yes?… Read on

  2. Hoppy Easter


    August 6, 2016 by Lyn

    Easter, 2012

    It had been their private joke since their first Easter together, a joke that they initiated their children into early on: Aelgifu was their family’s private Easter Bunny (Cecily was the first to draw said iconic character for school with horns, causing an interesting and uncomfortable parent-teacher conference until they realized this particular teacher, at least, was Faded.… Read on

  3. Fairy Tale


    August 6, 2016 by Lyn

    coat_of_armsSThis story takes place on St. Patrick’s Day on the 5th year of the Addergoole school.

    “Well.” Yngvi looked around the pod at the stocked-in supplies.

    “Well,” Ayla agreed, taking off her apron and throwing it into her room. “I think we have enough.”… Read on

  4. Dreams of Nothing and Everything: Part 1


    August 3, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place on Monday night, the first week of the 5th Year of the Addergoole School (after Chapter 4) 
    Shahin slept; wrapped in the new-smelling blankets in this strange, airless place, she dreamed.

    She dreamt of Aelgifu, dreaming:
    She dreamt of a dance, her in a dress Jerri and Eve had picked out, a cornflower-blue sundress that looked pretty but left her feeling exposed.… Read on

  5. Minding


    August 2, 2016 by Lyn

    Week Three of Year Five of the Addergoole School

    Until Year Five, Reid Solomon had been fairly careful about the privacy of his students’ minds. He could, and would, scan lightly, like running his fingers over the spines of books, to see who was paying attention, who was daydreaming, who just wasn’t getting the subject material, but until now, he’d never gone deeper without cause, not in the middle of class, at the very least.… Read on

  6. St. Patrick’s Day Special


    August 1, 2016 by Lyn

    St. Patrick’s Day, Year 4 of the Addergoole School. 

    The party was at Ted Debnam’s older brother Neil’s place, an easy-going guy just out of college who didn’t mind a bunch of high school seniors filling up his apartment a couple times a year, or so Aelgifu had been told.… Read on

  7. Epilogue: Shahin


    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    First Week of July, 2000

    “It’s not exile, Shahin.” Yngvi and Ayla sandwiched her, hugging her tightly from both sides. “It’s a month, that’s all.” Yngvi, always rational, patted her shoulder.

    “The doctors both said it would be good for you to see your family for a little while.… Read on

  8. Chapter 175: Shahin


    July 19, 2016 by Lyn

    Life is the key,
    what you want it to be
    Release your mind
    Release your mind
    Open yourself to the universal truth
    Free your mind
    Free your mind

    Second to last week in March, 2000

    “How do you think Tolly is managing?”… Read on

  9. Chapter 173: Kailani


    July 17, 2016 by Lyn

    Kai smiled at her friend and her groom, at Yngvi’s elaborate bow, at the words of the poem that he’d chosen. She smiled until her face hurt, Xaviera’s words still stinging, a little. Not the time to be jealous.She wasn’t?… Read on

  10. Chapter 172: Shahin


    July 17, 2016 by Lyn

    You know our love was meant to be
    The kind of love that lasts forever
    And I need you here with me
    From tonight until the end of time

    “Are you nervous?” Kai asked, for what had to be the seventeenth time.… Read on

  11. Chapter 145: Shahin


    June 30, 2016 by Lyn

    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

  12. 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

  13. 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

  14. Chapter 124: Shahin


    June 9, 2016 by Lyn

    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

  15. Interlude: Aelgifu (b)


    June 3, 2016 by Lyn

    Io ran her hand through the girl’s hair again, soft and sleek, until her hand touched the velveteen fur of the ears protruding from the top of her head… uh.

    “Ayla?” she asked shakily.

    Ayla moaned softly, looking up at her, licking her lips.… Read on

  16. Interlude: Aelgifu


    June 3, 2016 by Lyn

    The knock on Io’s door came later Sunday night than she’d been expecting, but not so late that she’d started to worry. Nevertheless, she was in her nightgown already; but, that hardly mattered, given the company she was expecting. She opened the door.… Read on

  17. Chapter 112b: Shahin


    June 3, 2016 by Lyn

    I know you know
    I’m wrapped around your finger
    You’re so, you’re so
    Beautiful and dangerous
    Hot and cold

    Eris’ words were swimming in Shahin’s mind as she met Emrys after their cy’ree meetings. “Cy’Akinobu should be getting out of their meeting, too,” she murmured.… Read on

  18. Chapter 106: Shahin


    May 26, 2016 by Lyn

    Author’s Note:
    Okay, I have to admit that by this point, the writing had gotten pretty bad.  That is a large portion of why I’m re-writing the entire thing – Book I is drafted already!

    I think Book 13 goes back to being passably decent, but from this point on I really do have to apologize.  Read on

  19. Prelude: Aelgifu


    May 26, 2016 by Lyn

    Ayla missed seeing Shahin every day, they way they had before she’d started this mess with Emrys; she missed her friend’s quiet self-confidence, which seemed to have been battered to the breaking point by the ordeal she nor Emrys would willingly talk about.… Read on

  20. Chapter 88B: Shahin


    May 19, 2016 by Lyn

    I know in all we’ve said
    I finally know how it began
    It’s nothing that I can even explain

    “…Well fuck you too.” Emrys spun on his heel

    Shahin was glad she had hold of his hand; it was probably all that kept him from taking off.… Read on

  21. Chapter 88: Shahin


    May 19, 2016 by Lyn

    Friends will be friends
    When you’re in need of love they give you care and attention
    Friends will be friends
    When you’re through with life and all hope is lost

    Saturday morning came slowly for Shahin, wrapped in the warmth that was Emrys, safe in his arms, dreaming of a place by a river where everything was safe.… Read on

  22. Chapter 87: Jamian


    May 16, 2016 by Lyn

    You got your friends, just like I got mine
    We might think a little differently
    But we got a lot in common you will see
    We’re just like you, only prettier

    When Ty had told him – when, tired but full of ideas, he’d left Kailani’s bedroom to slip into Ty’s bed late Friday night – that cy’Linden was having a cy’ree meeting Saturday, Jamian had been a little dubious.… Read on

  23. Chapter 55b – Shahin


    September 4, 2015 by Lyn

    It’s not easy love
    But you’ve got friends you can trust
    Friends will be friends

    Shahin laughed softly at Ayla’s joke. It was good to just be with her friend again, even if she did miss Vi. “Do you…”

    She lost her thought, and the question, as her door swung open.… Read on

  24. Interlude: Aelgifu and Ioanna


    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.”… Read on

  25. Interlude: Aelgifu


    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
