  1. A Christmas Switch

    0

    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.”

    The cafeteria fell silent, the whole room seeming to hold its breath.… Read on


  2. Further Down and Deeper In

    August 17, 2016 by Lyn

    Near the end of Year Five of the Addergoole School

    “Come on, Kaia, wake up.” Conrad was calling her, but her dreams were nice and warm, and it was Sunday. She didn’t need to get up on Sunday.

    “Kaia, please?” His voice sounded wrong.… Read on


  3. Slash 3: Conrad and Emrys: Go!

    This is so very, very, non-canon; this is set early in an alternate-past 4th Year

    Oralee was a beautiful girl, and the way her body moved could hypnotize a man, especially when the strap on her little bitty tank top went sliding down her shoulder.… Read on


  4. Just Another Day

    August 2, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place on Friday, Week Three, Year Five of the Addergoole School
    (after Chapter 47 and before Chapter 50.)

    ‘Lisha was smiling when he met her after their last classes of the day – grinning, actually, bouncing and cheerful and happy.… Read on

    MABINA: The first thing you need to really, really understand is that words have power.

    Words have power.
     - Oaths

    MABINA: I assume Conrad already told you about Oaths. Our word means what it means, and reality can be awfully literal about enforcing it.… Read on


  6. Something to Drink About

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

    “Another drink?” Ivette was wearing just over the legal minimum, all of it emerald-green, and had topped it with a green sequined top hat; she looked like the cover girl for Fuck Bunnies of Ireland, and she was holding a tall bottle of expensive Irish whiskey.… Read on

    Valentine’s Day, Year 4 of the Addergoole School

    Vladimir & Alisha

    He’d thought the flowers would be the hard part, but it turned out that the shop that could order anything for the students really could order anything, and had managed to come up with yellow and white roses and daffodils when daffodils wouldn’t be in season for another month.… Read on


  8. 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

    Year Four of the Addergoole School, Day One
    Acacia

    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


  10. Epilogue: Kailani

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    First Week of August, 2000

    “Have you thought about visiting your mother?” Kai regarded Conrad over the pile of textbooks, unsure why she’d picked now to bring this up. Maybe because his tail was twitching and he’d started doodling in the margins.… Read on

    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


  12. 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

    “How do you think she’s doing?” Shahin leaned into Emrys’ arms, swaying slowly with the music. So different than their first dance… but, for the moment, neither of them had anything to prove.

    “She’s probably doing rather well.” Xaviera had left the dance early with a drunk and handsy Ofir, a determined smile on her face.… Read on

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    They hadn’t had much of a chance to talk, Thursday night, and when they had, she and Conrad had lain in bed not saying anything, anyway. She wasn’t sure where to start, and “I’m sorry” seemed so horribly inadequate.

    She couldn’t put off talking forever, though, so she slunk home after classes and sat on the bed, not quite looking at him.… Read on

    “Wait.”

    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

    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

    July 19, 2016 by Lyn

    Directly after Chapter 176

    Kai wasn’t happy to see him.

    This was ending up being the case more often than not lately. It probably would have given Tolly a complex, but he was pretty sure he had one already. His closest female friend hated (with decent reason) his Keeper, who (with probably even better reason) hated her right back.… Read on

    Don’t move
    Don’t talk out of time
    Don’t think
    Don’t worry
    Everything’s just fine
    Just fine

    Last week in March, 2000

    There were papers everywhere. Kai had taken to sitting on the floor to work on her homework and projects, since it gave her more floor space in which to spread out, and she was leaning against the bed, working on her math homework while contemplating mind control.… Read on


  19. Chapter 174: Jamian

    July 17, 2016 by Lyn

    Jamian and Ty, as the only members of their crew invited to the wedding, ended up sharing a table with Mabina, Cassidy, Vlad, Lisha, and Conrad. It was, to say the least, a little uncomfortable. Jamian kept expecting Mabina to grill him about his so-called misbehavior with Kendra, or Kai’s odd situation with Anatoliy.… Read on

    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

    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

    July 13, 2016 by Lyn

    Your childhood eyes were so intense
    While bartering your innocence
    For bits of string, the grown-up wings you needed

    “So I thought I’d talk with Tolly,” Kai explained to Conrad. It looked less perfect in the harsh light of day, but it was still the only plan she had.… Read on

    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

    Christmas Day.

    They had exchanged presents with the crew the day before – although most of them had lavished their attention on Mabina’s twins and little Min – but, at Conrad’s suggestion, Kai and Conrad had held off their own exchange until this morning.… Read on


  25. Interlude: Conrad

    July 5, 2016 by Lyn

    “Have you tried just asking her?” Luke’s face had the dyspeptic expression he reserved for his Students’ relationship problems.

    “Flat out, you mean? I couldn’t do that. If the answer is no, she’ll think I’m clinging and becoming too attached. If it’s yes, she’ll wonder why I didn’t just ask the other question.” Conrad shifted uncomfortably in his chair as he looked around his Mentor’s office, at everything besides Luke’s face.… Read on
