  1. Descriptions: Mabina-and-Cassidy


    August 11, 2016 by Lyn

    Mabina(may-BEE-nuh) and Cassidy(CASS-ih-dee) cy’Solomon

    Third Cohort

    Mabina and Cassidy, with their Masks up, or before their Becoming:

    At a glance, words like earthy, county, and outdoorsy might be applied to them. Both have a well-baked, outside-all-summer tan and rather no-nonsense hairdos; Cassidy’s chestnut hair is short and tousled, laying in a haphazard and low-maintenance manner, while Mabina’s sorrel hair is worn long and straight, halfway down her back and usually pulled into a single braid.… Read on

  2. Question: Pairs


    August 8, 2016 by Lyn

    Yngvi and Aelgifu are described as looking alike: are they the next Mabina / Cassidy?

    Dr. Caitrin answers:

    By “the next Mabina/Cassidy,” I’m going to assume you’re referring to Mabina & Cassidy’s psychic and emotional bond that makes them the mental equivalent of conjoined twins, yes?… Read on

  3. 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

  4. Tradition


    August 2, 2016 by Lyn

    Between Years Four and Five

    Certain things were tradition at weddings. The bride got a pretty dress. The groom was nervous. Somebody’s mother or stepmother would mess things up. Somebody’s drunk uncle or cousin would start saying inappropriate things at the top of his lungs.… Read on

  5. Valentine’s Day Special: Three Short Vignettes


    August 1, 2016 by Lyn

    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

  6. 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

  7. Together


    August 1, 2016 by Lyn

    This story contains material of a sexual nature.  

    early December in the Third Year of the Addergoole School.

    They had the evening to themselves, a feat that was harder to arrange than either of them had imagined possible. Mabina had spoken rather firmly to Liza and Megan, and suggested they find somewhere else to have the crisis of the night.… Read on

  8. Baby Ducks


    July 29, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place on the first day of the third year of the Addergoole School.

    They’d taken all her luggage, and now she was standing in a hallway after the entirely-unhelpful orientation, no clear idea where to go nor where her worldly possessions, such as they were, had gone.… Read on

  9. Fond Farewells


    July 29, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place just before Year Three of the Addergoole School.

    The night was warm, the crickets loud, and the creek between their houses nearly dry. Mabina and Eric cuddled under the shade of a giant maple tree, kissing each other with an urgency that was more desperation than arousal.… Read on

  10. 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

  11. 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

  12. 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

  13. 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

  14. Chapter 178: Shahin


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    You could say I’m a little bit crazy
    You could call me insane
    Walkin’ ’round with all these whispers
    Runnin’ ’round here in my brain
    I just can’t help but hear ’em
    Man, I can’t avoid it

    The first Sunday in April

    Shahin lay in bed, once again between her husband and their Kept, idly stroking the scales on the back of Xaviera’s neck while the girl slept.… Read on

  15. Chapter 176: Kailani


    July 19, 2016 by Lyn

    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

  16. 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

  17. Chapter 167: Kailani


    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

  18. Chapter 146: Kailani


    June 30, 2016 by Lyn

    And if it gets heavy
    You can’t keep it steady
    Remember the things you been told
    Who taught you to live like that

    Kai kissed Conrad good-bye twice as she got ready for training with the Thorne Girls, then a third time on her way out into the suite, where she paused to slip on her sneakers.… Read on

  19. Chapter 140: Kailani


    June 28, 2016 by Lyn

    What does it mean?
    I ask you
    What does it mean?
    I recall seeing the pair of you returning with your aeosthena.

    For her first few days back, Kailani had little time to think of the strange Ellehemaei and her stranger comment to Shahin.… Read on

  20. Interlude: Mabina


    June 28, 2016 by Lyn

    Mabina frowned at the closing door. Kailani had been home for less than a day, and she was already heading off, talking in whispers to the Daeva cy’Linden, Jamian. This boded ill. Perhaps it was time for a gentle, motherly nudge in the right direction.… Read on

  21. Chapter 102: Jamian


    May 26, 2016 by Lyn

    Mother knows best
    Listen to your mother
    It’s a scary world out there

    Things had been tense around Ty since the cy’ree meeting, and Jamian didn’t know how to fix things. He’d tried everything he could come up with – short of breaking down and crying, or switching into girl form and letting Ty do what he so clearly wanted to – to make things better, but he’d only managed to get them so far as not-horrible.… Read on

  22. Chapter 98: Kailani


    May 25, 2016 by Lyn

    You ain’t never had a friend like me
    Can your friends do this? Can your friends do that?
    Can your friends pull this out their little hat?
    Can your friends go, poof?

    “…and then after I get back from training, we’ll go get you another collar.… Read on

  23. Chapter 89: Kailani


    May 19, 2016 by Lyn

    I used to know my place was the spot next to you
    Now I’m searching the room for an empty seat
    ‘Cause lately I don’t even know what page you’re on

    They’d stopped after Elfred Saturday, as they were a little uncertain about talking to Finnegan, and the next two people on the list were the two of them.… Read on

  24. Chapter 80c: Kailani


    May 13, 2016 by Lyn

    Does anybody out there want a second-hand heart?
    One that’s already broken in?

    Conrad looked uncomfortable, his tail drooping, as he took his seat back with the crew. Cassidy, facing him, picked up on it immediately.

    “Hey guys, what’s up?” His question seemed directed as much at Kailani as at Conrad.… Read on

  25. 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
