  1. The End

    0

    April 1, 2018 by Lyn

    “I am bringing the Addergoole project to an end.” The room had been quiet. Now the auditorium was silent. “I am closing the school and releasing all of you here from all oaths to me. You no longer need work for me, teach for me, keep my secrets.… Read on


  2. Slash 4: Luke and Manira

    0

    August 13, 2016 by Lyn

    If this story took place, it would do so around the end of Book Two, after the end of Hell Night.

    Luke wasn’t expecting anyone to be knocking on his door. It was late, past midnight, and the chaos in the halls had finally died down.… Read on


  3. Slash 2: Luca and VanderLinden

    0

    August 13, 2016 by Lyn

    His Mentor hadn’t warned him about Daeva.

    She was hiding her horns behind a heavy Mask when he met her, but letting her tail trail out under the bottom of her skirt for anyone to see. Dangerous: not all humans were affected by the Blindness of the Gods, and not all Ellehemaei were kind to passing beautiful women, especially not to the sort with tails.… Read on

    August 10, 2016 by Lyn

    How old are the Addergoole staff?

    Regine answers:

    The staff range in age from five hundred and nine years to thirty-seven years old: Michael VanderLinden and Ginger Cayenne, bracketing a much smaller range between them.

    Next oldest in age are Shira Pelletier and Sakamoto Shou, at three hundred ninety and three hundred ninety-three years old; next youngest in age are D.J.… Read on


  5. Question: But I Meant…

    August 9, 2016 by Lyn

    How dependent upon intention is the Law? For example, if someone jokingly says ‘I belong to you’ without meaning the words, are they bound nonetheless?

    Luke answers:

    Let me tell you, Keaira, you’re lucky you’re asking me, and not Mike or someone actually unscrupulous.… Read on


  6. Question: In Good Times and Bad

    August 8, 2016 by Lyn

    To Mike: how would you characterize your relationship with Luke?

    Oh, gods, you’ve been talking to the giant bird again, haven’t you? I know you like him and all – I’m an incubus, dear, a Daeva. It’s my job to know these things – but talking to him is never a good idea.… Read on


  7. Question: Lives’ Lessons

    0

    August 8, 2016 by Lyn

    To Luca: who have you owned in your lifetime?

    Ah, Keaira, you would have to ask that, wouldn’t you? You have a way of getting to the heart of things I don’t really want to answer.

    Overlooking the very short time where I Owned Mike – Linden – which we will not talk about, I’ve Owned two people in my lifetime, one of them twice.… Read on


  8. Oversight

    0

    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

    κείμεθα, τοῖς κείνων ῥήμασι πειθόμενοι

  11. Making An Entrance

    0

    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


  12. More Than Words

    0

    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    School was settling in to a tolerable level of weird for Donegal. It wasn’t comfortable, exactly, but his friends seemed to be doing well, and there didn’t seem to be any choice but to do well, to, settle in, and wait for the Change.… Read on


  13. All You Zombies

    0

    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    “There’s something wrong with this place,” Aella insisted, for what had to be the millionth time. Next to her, Amanada took a pause from painting her toenails to roll her eyes – for what had to be the 999,999th time.

    “You’re making mountains out of molehills, Aella,” she insisted, “and molehills out of thin air.”

    “And thin air out of your imagination,” Megan added helpfully.… Read on

    0

    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    This story begins the July before the first year of the Addergoole School, on July 20th, 1995.

    The school was ready, the walls painted and paneled, the books on the shelves, the wards set, and in less than two months, the first students would step foot inside Regine’s project.… Read on


  15. Another One

    0

    July 26, 2016 by Lyn

    Sometime between 1979 and 1999

    “Pour me another one.” Aelfgar slammed his beer mug down on the table.

    “Fucking Vikings,” Luke laughed, even as he flagged down the waitress. They’d ridden an hour from Addergoole just to find a bar that didn’t know them.… Read on


  16. Planning Stages

    0

    July 26, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place in 1983, several years after HeartStone

    “Camping?” Ké raised one eyebrow in question. “Just the two of us, alone?”

    “I’ve been told,” he informed her, smiling, “that this is nineteen-eighty-three and women can do whatever they want and, what’s more, no-one will raise an eyebrow at an un-chaperoned woman alone with a man not part of her family.”

    “And I’ve been told,” she countered, smiling just as much, “that of all three of the pure-blooded races, the Mara are the most traditional, and the most likely to get stuck in an archaic mindset.… Read on


  17. All In A Day’s Work

    1

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    In the weeks and months after A Man’s Man.

    The whoring was easy. If it was more complicated than it had been under his previous masters, it was almost more pleasant. He found the clients’ desire for conversation an entertaining novelty, and the one time he’d ended up with unwanted bruises, Luke had taken the client in question aside for a long conversation that had lead to a heartfelt, terrified apology and a couple very expensive gifts.… Read on


  18. Christmas Bonus Story: Heartstone

    1

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place around the same time as Into the Labrynth and Housewarming.

    Regine hadn’t been enthusiastic about the Christmas party; she’d been dead-set against it, at least to begin with. “Ridiculous,” she’d scoffed; Luke wondered if she’d noticed the wince of disappointment in her Kept’s normally well-mannered expression.… Read on


  19. Housewarming

    1

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place the day after “Into the Labyrinth.”

    He had a house now. It was a cottage, smaller than any house he’d ever seen – smaller even than the place he’d stayed in with Regine last night – but it was his, a whole house.… Read on


  20. Labyrinth

    2

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place immediately after Yes, Mistress.

    Regine had been driving all day, with two bathroom breaks and a stop for lunch at a family restaurant where neither of them fit in and only Ambrus seemed to care. She seemed indefatigable; she also seemed entirely comfortable riding for twelve hours in silence.… Read on


  21. A Few Good Men

    0

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    April 1865

    President Lincoln was holding a reception.

    Luca wasn’t certain why he’d been invited, but he had a feeling it had something to do with the two blonde women in front of him – the icy English Regine Avonmorea and the silly and frivolous tree-blossom Michaela Carmichael née Linden, whose current husband had that lost look that Luca had already come to associate with Mike’s spouses, especially the male ones.… Read on


  22. Pebbles

    0

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place in 1864, in the midst of the American Civil War

    “War again?” The boots dangling in Luca’s face were made of fine-grain, expensive leather and were in perfect condition – not a nick, scratch, or speck of dust on them; the pants overhanging them were similarly pristine.… Read on


  23. Independence

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place mainly on the 4th of July, 1784
    They hadn’t wanted to let him join their army at all. There were plenty of excuses they could have used – he was young, even by the standards of that day and age, and looked younger.… Read on


  24. Be the Story

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    Luca was fifteen when his mother decided that they would leave the People and live among the white men again; “again” because she had come from them, although he’d spent his whole life among the People.

    He soon learned that he didn’t like the white folks, and that the feeling was mutual.… Read on


  25. Epilogue: Jamian

    0

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    Last week of August, 2000

    The sun was beating down on the back yard of the small cottage, so Jamian was sitting under the awning with Dominique and Carey, drinking lemonade and reading a cheap paperback D.J. had lent him. His babies were just waking up from a nap, wiggling ineffectually in their shared cradle.… Read on
