  1. Educational Disagreements


    March 9, 2017 by Lyn

    This ficlet comes after: No Apple for Teacher, which followed Useful.
    Both of those fics are after Retirement and Retirement 2:

    “You’re not teaching them enough!” Rozen’s voice was a roar. He knew he was getting way too loud, and some part of him – the part that cared about the Bond – felt a little guilty about that.… Read on

  2. 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

  3. Horse-trading


    August 26, 2016 by Lyn

    This story is written for Nat Ford’s request, thanks to the “Addergoole Wants You” comments-for-fics promotion.

    Kai frowned at the charts in front of her: genealogies, descriptions, birth dates and years.  You could follow patterns easily enough down any given genealogy, but that wasn’t what was making her frown.Read on

  4. 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

  5. April Bonus Story – Chrysalis


    August 16, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place in the future.

      Kailani woke late, the sunshine streaming in the windows and warming her face. She stretched, feeling warm and refreshed, as if after a perfect night of sleep. Everything was right, everything was going well, and she had a big day ahead of her.

  6. Description: Kailani


    August 11, 2016 by Lyn

    Kailani (kah ee LAH nee) Sh’Moonchild
    Fifth Cohort

    Still waters run deep.

    Shy, withdrawn, and uncertain around people, bookish and reserved, Kailani is a creature of libraries and mountain streams, not the complex and capricious social world of Addergoole. In contrast to Shahin, she rarely understands or can affect the way she is seen by those around her, and is at a loss to reconcile that impression with how she sees herself.… Read on

  7. Question: Purse of holding


    August 8, 2016 by Lyn

    This story written in response to AMHarte’s question to Kailani:
    What’s inside your purse?

    My purse? Oh, this thing? Well, it’s got – almost everything in it, I guess.

    Here’s my notebook. I draw patterns in it, when things aren’t making a lot of sense.… Read on

  8. Retirement 2


    August 7, 2016 by Lyn

    Fifty years in the future, Pennsylvania: “Now, I think you’d better tell me what you did to Regine.”

    As quickly as it had come, Rozen’s smile vanished, leaving him glowering down at Kai. She struggled to remember, again, that he was no threat to her.… Read on

  9. Retirement


    August 7, 2016 by Lyn

    Fifty years in the future, Pennsylvania:

    In the sunlit warmth of her office, Kai studied the reports for the month. They’d admitted two new students, one of whom, the son of a maple farmer from the Green Mountains, had come with a crate of maple syrup to pay his tuition.… Read on

  10. From Addergoole to Addergoole


    August 6, 2016 by Lyn

    April 11, Year Five of the Addergoole School

    Read about the Addergoole Fourteen  

    “I’ve been wondering, Professor. Why Addergoole?”

    It wasn’t the primary thing on her mind, of course. They were studying an array of Change descriptions and, of apparently more interest to her Mentor, “inherent non-Working abilities,” something that Kai hadn’t really been aware existed.… Read on

  11. Winning


    August 4, 2016 by Lyn

    Year Five of the Addergoole School, after Chapter 120.

    She looked at the list of questions again. She’d made a good attempt at going through the other topics, but there was only one she really wanted to try for. She shouldn’t; it wasn’t her area of expertise, and her rare sessions with Regine had only begun to cover the topic, but how often did one get to delve into such a fun topic?… Read on

  12. 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

  13. 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

  14. Notepaper


    August 2, 2016 by Lyn

    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

  15. 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

  16. Questions


    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    Kailani, age 5:

    She was, her kindergarten teacher said, inquisitive. It was said in that air of an adult trying to say something above her head, a sensation she was already very familiar with and already disliked strongly.

    Teachers, she found out, didn’t like being told either of those things.… Read on

  17. 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

  18. Chapter 189: Jamian


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    Second week of June

    Everything was going to be all right.

    Kailani’s twins were cute, in a wrinkly, noisy sort of way. “Neither of them are named Onomatopoeia,” she’d told Jaya and Shahin, and it had seemed to make sense to her.… Read on

  19. 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

  20. 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

  21. Chapter 188: Kailani


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “Time after time we warned you, and you didn’t listen.”

    “Your foolish crusades have had too much collateral damage this time, Kai. It’s one thing to battle on your own, but when you bring the wrath down on your crew… that’s too much.”… Read on

  22. Chapter 187: Shahin


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “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

  23. Chapter 185: Kailani


    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

  24. 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

  25. 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
