  1. Question: Rules Made to be Broken


    August 9, 2016 by Lyn

    Shutsumon asks: Aside from the obvious things like kept not being bound by oaths made while kept how do oaths and ownership interact?

    Agatha settles herself into a chair, taking her time about it.
    Bowen sits at her feet, not looking at her, or at the audience.

  2. You’re a Jet all the Way


    August 1, 2016 by Lyn

    The fifth Friday of the Fourth Year of the Addergoole School.

    Dr. Regine stood up in front of the Dining Hall before dinner began Friday with her customary lack of ceremony and complete command of the student body’s attention. Mabina, somewhat inured to the effect, noticed the look on the faces of the Fourth Cohorts in her crew: Oh, shit, now what?Read on

  3. Chapter 188b: Kailani  


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    The world kept insisting on being full of pain and blood.

    She could really do with some nice clouds, a little breeze, maybe some rain, but the world kept arguing back with more pain and more blood. She was drenched in sweat, and none of it made any sense at all.… Read on

  4. Interlude: Anatoliy


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    Kai had let him take her to Dr. Caitrin’s office, although she had protested around his hand the entire time. Tolly was worried about her. He was pretty sure girls were supposed to know what was going on when they went into labor, and not deny the whole situation the way she had been.… Read on

  5. 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

  6. Chapter 169b: Shahin


    July 15, 2016 by Lyn

    It seemed that, the closer they got to the wedding, the more time they spent talking with Emrys’ crew. Shahin smiled awkwardly at Agatha while Emrys discussed arrangements for something – she wasn’t quite sure what, but apparently the groom had personal things to attend to as much as the bride -with Dysmas.… Read on

  7. Chapter 169: Shahin


    July 15, 2016 by Lyn

    And in our blindness, do we move onward
    And cling to the lies that we have harbored?
    We could not admit we were mistaken
    But if we don’t do it now, dear God
    Could you please come down here and tell me when?

  8. Chapter 161: Kailani


    July 8, 2016 by Lyn

    Do you know your enemy?

    Well, gotta know the enemy, hey

    The insurgency will rise

    When the blood’s been sacrificed

    Don’t be blinded by the lies in your eyes
    “Idu panida,” Kai muttered under her breath. Nothing stirred to her senses, even as the tail continued its gentle swishing.… Read on

  9. Chapter 157: Shahin


    July 8, 2016 by Lyn

    Blood’s thicker than the mud
    It’s a family affair

    They decided on not-black, which taxed both of their wardrobes. Emrys did all right with it; he had put on black slacks nevertheless, insisting that the pants didn’t count with regard to the outfit’s color, and topped them with a charcoal buttondown.… Read on

  10. Chapter 154: Shahin


    July 5, 2016 by Lyn

    Not to take this lightly
    So do not underestimate
    A token of affection

    Shahin couldn’t ignore the small rock of dismay in her stomach, feeling more than a bit ill at ease as she walked through the halls, hand in hand with Emrys – with her fiancé.… Read on

  11. 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

  12. Chapter 120: Jamian


    June 7, 2016 by Lyn

    It was with some trepidation that Jamian returned to the close circle of his cy’ree after the first round. Cy’Solomon was beating them; not by much, admittedly, but enough to be worrisome. They needed some good categories.

    “Now come on,” Magnolia was saying, her lips pursed in a frown.… Read on

  13. Chapter 117b: Jaya


    June 6, 2016 by Lyn

    I’ve had a knack from way back
    At breaking the rules once I learn the games

    Jamian couldn’t help being excited and nervous as they headed into the Hall for the Cy’ree Challenge; if nothing else, the emotions of cy’Linden were contagious.… Read on

  14. Interlude: The Kept


    May 25, 2016 by Lyn

    Wednesday: Kendra

    Kendra sat in the corner of Ofir’s room, quietly, so quietly, watching him have fun with his friends. Rowan, Wyatt, and Aneislis were over, and Rand, and Rafe with Renata; they were drinking beer, playing video games and gossiping about the rest of the school.… Read on

  15. Chapter 99: Jamian


    May 25, 2016 by Lyn

    Let’s get down to business
    I don’t got no time to play around

    No-one would ever say that cy’Linden turned down any opportunity for a party.

    Jamian settled into a corner as the suite filled up again, startling himself by being grateful when Agatha showed up.… Read on

  16. 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

  17. Interlude: Anatoliy


    September 13, 2015 by Lyn

    Anatoliy sat in his room for what seemed like an eternity after returning Kailani to her crew. At first, he just sat on his bed, head in his hands, and thought. Finally he stood, moving about the room. He did some busywork for Solomon; tidied his desk; made his bed.… Read on

  18. Chapter 68: Kailani


    September 13, 2015 by Lyn

    Soon as we could see clearly through our big black eye,
    Man we lit up your world like the Fourth of July

    It happened so quickly, Kai didn’t have a chance to do anything until Taro had already charged forward. He’d been aiming, she assumed, for the horrible little woman Agatha, but she’d stepped out of the way and he had hit Shahin instead.… Read on

  19. Chapter 67: Shahin


    September 12, 2015 by Lyn

    Stand by your man
    And tell the world you love him

    When the dragon descended on the Village, the children hadn’t stood a chance, Shahin reflected sadly, gazing down at the carnage.

    The adults at least had some magic to protect them, but clearly it had been woefully inadequate.… Read on

  20. Chapter 55c – Shahin


    September 4, 2015 by Lyn

    Gotta let me in
    Let the fun begin
    I’m the wolf today
    I’ll huff, I’ll puff, I’ll huff I’ll puff I’ll blow you away

    Shahin twisted in Emrys’ lap at the knock, and opened her mouth to call out.

    “No!” he said sharply, jostling her as he turned.… Read on

  21. Interlude: Emrys


    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

  22. Chapter 46: Shahin


    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

  23. Chapter 40: Shahin


    August 19, 2015 by Lyn

    Just take a fall
    You’re one of us

    Meals were getting easier, if only through repetition. Shahin sat silently through dinner in Agatha, Dysmas, and Anatoliy’s suite, studying the other two slaves at the table. The boy seemed quietly miserable, in large part because the only attention Agatha paid him was to insult him, either directly, or through catty little jabs.… Read on

  24. Chapter 34: Shahin


    August 18, 2015 by Lyn

    They’re out to get me
    They won’t catch me
    I’m innocent
    They won’t break me

    When Emrys deposited her at the doorway of her first class Monday morning, the urge to follow after him was overwhelming. Only her ironclad façade of calm let her keep the longing off her face as she walked into class, her steps measured, far more forced than they seemed, her chin at just the right angle to look proud without looking as if she was showing off the thick collar.… Read on

  25. Chapter 31: Shahin


    August 18, 2015 by Lyn

    Before I put another notch in my lipstick case
    You better make sure you put me in my place

    It took every iota of self-control Shahin had to keep her expression calm and her spine straight as she walked into the Dining Hall at Emrys’ side Sunday morning.… Read on
