    December 25, 2016 by Lyn

    August 12, 2016 by Lyn

    Ciro, Midnight Dawn
    formerly cy’Fridmar
    First Cohort, graduated

    Ciro, it has been posited, turned more than a little evil because, when one spends most of one’s life looking like an unhappy rooster, one can either kick ass or give in to being a laughingstock.… Read on

    One week after The Morning After the Night Before


    Content warning: Ib & Callista’s story (this and the preceding 2 stories) gets DARK, and after this story, it’s rather unrelentingly dark up ’till the end of year 5.  Skip this, The Devil You Know, and The Morning After the Night Before if you don’t want to read the slow abuse of a Kept. Read on

  6. Making An Entrance


    July 29, 2016 by Lyn

    One month before the beginning of classes, Year One of the Addergoole School, August 5th, 1995

    She was the last teacher to arrive, months after some and years after others. It had been harder than expected for Regine to find a romance-languages teacher who met all of her stringent qualifications, and, looking at the woman standing in the airport – posing.Read on

  7. Interlude: Callista


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    Graduation Day, Year 5 of the Addergoole School

    “Stay here.” Ib patted Callista’s shoulder gently. “Clean up the place, and get stuff packed. When I return, we’ll go to Maureen’s and sign custody of the children over to me.”

    “Yes, Master.”… Read on

  8. Chapter 166b: Shahin


    July 13, 2016 by Lyn

    “Perhaps you’d like to speak first today, Shahin.” Carter’s gaze was penetrating, and, despite his gentle tone, there was a clear force behind his words. She nodded slowly. It was fair. She cringed. It was fair, she had to admit.

    Of course, he probably thought it would be Xaviera that was foremost on her mind today; the girl sat beside her, clearly not quite at ease in the unfamiliar cy’ree meeting.… Read on

  9. Chapter 166: Shahin


    July 13, 2016 by Lyn

    Someone help us ’cause we’re doing our best
    Trying to make things work, but man, these times are hard

    “I think part of the problem is, she doesn’t know she’s broken.” Shahin looked over their late-night Café dinner at Emrys, her lips pursed in thought.… Read on

  10. Chapter 137: Kailani


    June 23, 2016 by Lyn

    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

  11. Chapter 133: Shahin


    June 21, 2016 by Lyn

    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

  12. Chapter 130: Shahin


    June 15, 2016 by Lyn

    I wish the real world
    Would just stop hassling me

    They were something of a ragtag group, Shahin mused, as they headed out to the Texas State Capitol on the fourth day of their trip. The Fifth Cohort were adjusting well enough to being back out “in the world;” they’d only been in Addergoole for a couple months, after all.… Read on

  13. Chapter 127: Shahin


    June 10, 2016 by Lyn

    The dark sorceress really was a good look on her, Shahin mused as she studied herself in the hotel room’s full-length mirror. As it was properly Halloween now, they were all changing back into their costumes for a night out on this small town.… Read on

  14. 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

  15. Chapter 112: Shahin


    June 3, 2016 by Lyn

    We got one thing in common when we walked in
    A memory we’re tryin’ to kill
    Swearin’ up and down we’ll never try again, but
    We know we will
    Welcome to the club

    Shahin settled onto Carter’s bed for their Sunday cy’ree meeting, looking around at the group thoughtfully, her gaze returned just as pensively by Eris.… Read on

  16. 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

  17. Chapter 97: Shahin


    May 25, 2016 by Lyn

    For all together, a team can weather, any storm they may go through.
    Yes, teamwork, can make a dream work,
    Can make the greatest dreams come true

    She tried to pretend she wasn’t clinging to Emrys’ hand as they walked down the hall, and was stupidly grateful for the fact that he seemed to be clinging every bit as tightly, and ignoring it every bit as studiously.… Read on

  18. Interlude: In the Eye of the Storm


    August 13, 2015 by Lyn

    Behind the bar, Callista watched the pretty redhead naiad run from the room, and noted to herself to keep the girl’s drinks lighter in the future. A loss of inhibition wasn’t good, pleasant, or beneficial for everyone – although, come to think of it, screaming at the wolves surrounding her and running away wasn’t altogether the worst idea.… Read on
