  1. Connect the Dots


    July 29, 2016 by Lyn

    December, Year 2 of the Addergoole School

    It had been a calm few days, and Jo had managed to get a full night of sleep for several nights in a row; after a series of problems that had left her running on soda and adrenaline, she was glad for the rest but restless enough to wake up before dawn.… Read on

  2. Chapter 186: Jamian


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “Pretty soon, I’m not going to be able to do this.” Jamian buttoned his tux shirt over the growing roundness of his belly, thinking about Kai, stretched like she’d pop, and Shahin, swathed in lace and velvet. He didn’t think about how close to the end of the year they were – barely two months left.… Read on

  3. Chapter 156: Jamian


    July 5, 2016 by Lyn

    It’s all that I have to give.
    I give you my all

    In a crew as full of Workers of huamu as Shiva’s crew, it wasn’t surprising to find the suite hung with pine garlands, the spruce tree growing in the corner draped with living decorations of holly, the poinsettias on every flat surface.… Read on

  4. Chapter 149: Kailani


    July 5, 2016 by Lyn

    So be it
    Threaten no more
    To secure peace is
    To prepare for war

    “Conrad, Kailani, come on in,” Magnolia purred cheerfully. “Good to see you.”

    “Thanks,” Kai answered uncertainly, clutching her invitation in one hand and Conrad’s hand in the other.… Read on

  5. Interlude: Magnolia


    June 7, 2016 by Lyn

    It was funny, Magnolia mused, how you could share a school and classes with someone for three years and barely talk. Cohort or no, Adrian and she hadn’t moved in the same circles (they were both something-like-friends with people the other one had Kept, but that really didn’t count.… Read on

  6. Chapter 123: Jaya


    June 7, 2016 by Lyn

    I owe it all to the mistake he made back then
    I owe it all to my girl’s ex-boyfriend

    Having a cy’Linden hermaphrodite for a significant other and Keeper was, Jaya mused, weird. Not that she had a lot to compare it to, but even Ty’s exes seemed to think being Owned by him was a little odd.… Read on

  7. Chapter 120: Jamian


    June 7, 2016 by Lyn

    It was with some trepidation that Jamian returned to the close circle of his cy’ree after the first round. Cy’Solomon was beating them; not by much, admittedly, but enough to be worrisome. They needed some good categories.

    “Now come on,” Magnolia was saying, her lips pursed in a frown.… Read on

  8. Chapter 117b: Jaya


    June 6, 2016 by Lyn

    I’ve had a knack from way back
    At breaking the rules once I learn the games

    Jamian couldn’t help being excited and nervous as they headed into the Hall for the Cy’ree Challenge; if nothing else, the emotions of cy’Linden were contagious.… Read on

  9. Chapter 114: Jamian


    June 3, 2016 by Lyn

    It’s best to know the truth
    Of that I have no doubt
    But you’ll have to face the future
    When the truth comes out

    Jamian wasn’t looking forward to this cy’ree meeting, but he couldn’t really get away with skipping, so he helped Magnolia set up, focusing on the Project to keep his mind off of Melchior.… Read on

  10. Chapter 99: Jamian


    May 25, 2016 by Lyn

    Let’s get down to business
    I don’t got no time to play around

    No-one would ever say that cy’Linden turned down any opportunity for a party.

    Jamian settled into a corner as the suite filled up again, startling himself by being grateful when Agatha showed up.… Read on

  11. Chapter 96b: Jaya


    May 25, 2016 by Lyn

    If he ever hurts you
    True love won’t desert you
    You know I still love you

    Ty was waiting in the living room when Jaya got home, a textbook open on his lap that he was clearly ignoring, the TV on to something he was also clearly ignoring.… Read on

  12. Chapter 87: Jamian


    May 16, 2016 by Lyn

    You got your friends, just like I got mine
    We might think a little differently
    But we got a lot in common you will see
    We’re just like you, only prettier

    When Ty had told him – when, tired but full of ideas, he’d left Kailani’s bedroom to slip into Ty’s bed late Friday night – that cy’Linden was having a cy’ree meeting Saturday, Jamian had been a little dubious.… Read on

  13. Chapter 84: Jamian


    May 14, 2016 by Lyn

    If he don’t act right
    Trade him in
    If he breakin’ you down girl
    Trade him in

    Jamian thought about his conversation with Kailani all through eperu. He could have asked Professor Pelletier about the strange Word that he’d manifested, but something kept him quiet.… Read on

  14. Chapter 78: Jamian


    February 26, 2016 by Lyn

    So be it
    Threaten no more
    To secure peace is
    To prepare for war

    Jamian woke early; someone was pounding on Ty’s door. He shook Ty awake gently and padded over to the doorway, remembering to pull a robe on at the last minute.… Read on

  15. Chapter 77: Kailani


    September 13, 2015 by Lyn

    I don’t mean to be demanding
    But I want some understanding

    “Idu kaana,” Kai murmured, as the air started getting thin.

    “Air?” Tolly asked, his voice sounding shaky. And no wonder; the air was all wrong. What had Jamian been thinking?… Read on

  16. Chapter 72: Jamian


    September 13, 2015 by Lyn

    Young teacher, the subject
    Of schoolgirl fantasy

    Mark – and Ivette and Joff, both of them flush with energy and giggling like kids – walked Jamian back to Ty’s suite. Jamian, who had watched them drawing energy from the very angry, flammable Emrys, hadn’t been able to participate: VanderLinden and Ty had spent long enough hammering home that draining people was a bad thing that he seemed unable to do it at all now.… Read on

  17. Interlude: Aelgifu


    August 31, 2015 by Lyn

    “Thank you.” Ayla gratefully took the plastic cup from Alexander and held it with both hands, as if it could warm her up. She wasn’t cold, not physically – it was always comfortable down here, so far underground that weather didn’t seem to matter – but she was nervous and a little jittery.… Read on

  18. Chapter 49: Shahin


    August 25, 2015 by Lyn

    So you think you got it all figured out
    You’re an expert in the field, without a doubt

    “Look nice tonight,” he’d said, rather perfunctorily. He’d backed off much of the cold, arrogant high-and-mighty treatment since her little bout of illness Thursday morning, so she’d been taken aback by the shortness of the comment, even though he softened it with a smile.… Read on

  19. Interlude: Manira


    August 19, 2015 by Lyn

    When the leopard-spotted Portuguese girl in her Contemporary Literature class – Margarita? Magda? – told Manira to “enjoy magic class,” she thought she was in for something like she’d gone through with her Mentor, a one-on-one exploration of the Words until they stumbled over combinations that worked for her.… Read on

  20. Chapter 15 – Jamian


    August 13, 2015 by Lyn

    Inside my present, so… so much past

    He’d borrowed, at Ty’s insistence, one of Ty’s suits, an outfit that fit him nearly perfectly, far more sleekly than anything he owned, and probably twice as expensive as his entire wardrobe. But, with the jacket buttoned over a shirt that somehow matched without matching the dress Ty was wearing, Jamian somehow felt more secure, more put-together, more… manly, even with Ty finger-combing his hair to lie properly around the new horns.… Read on
