  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. CYOA – Richard: Attempt to negotiate further

    (go back)

    You don’t really need to look to Coy for his reaction, but you do anyway, out of courtesy, since you’re speaking for him, as usual. He shakes his head no, although, to your surprise, it doesn’t seem to be a very enthusiastic no.… Read on


  3. CYOA – Richard: Ask what they want

    When you come down to it, dealing with the Thorne Girls is a lot like dealing with Rozen or Barem or Ib; they’re just more pleasant to look at.

    “We just want to go to the Arcade, Acacia.… Read on


  4. CYOA – Richard: Try to talk your way through them

    (go back)

    Try to talk your way through them “Well, hello, Acacia, Massima. Looking… sharp, as usual.” Fierce and perfectly dressed, these girls make skin-tight denim look like high fashion. “Sharp” is as accurate a word as you can muster, even with your most charming smile to buffer it.… Read on


  5. CYOA – Richard: Leave, and go to the Arcade

    (go back)

    On an ordinary day, it’s a simple walk down the hall and then down some stairs to get to the Arcade. The school isn’t that crowded; some days you can make it down there without running into anyone at all.… Read on

    Massima cy’Doug
    “Sima”
    Second Cohort

    From the outside, the Thorne Girls can be a bit of a monolith – the half-sisters have similar Changes and a similar demeanor, leading to them giving the impression of a Wall Of Sharp, clones of each other varying only in coloration.… Read on


  7. Seek and Ye Shall Find

    August 6, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place immediately after Looking for Trouble

    “Just because Tya didn’t want you anymore,” Massima was purring, as Shiva got close enough to hear, “doesn’t mean you’ve got what it takes to hold your own around here.”

    “And you would know, of course,” Nikita was replying, his voice lazy, velvet over barbs, “what it takes to survive intact as a Kept.… Read on

    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

    Early October, Year 5 of the Addergoole School 

    This story discusses non-consensual sex in flashbacks. 

    Finnegan was getting very good at being invisible. It didn’t take much, around the Thornes; they weren’t like he’d heard some of the other Keepers were, more like lazy tigers.… Read on

    Year Five of the Addergoole School
    Acacia

    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

    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

    Year Three of the Addergoole School, Day One
    Allyse

    Being home for a month had been too weird. Allyse’s skin felt itchy, working around the layers of geasa that were at once unnecessary and far too confining. She’d wanted to ask her mother about Addergoole.… Read on

    Year Two of the Addergoole School, Day One

    Allyse

    “This fucking sucks.” The lean blonde girl flopped down on her suitcases, her ponytail bobbing in punctuation.

    “It blows.” The second girl, dark where the first was fair but every bit as lean and muscular, echoed the motion, sitting on her own suitcase.… 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 15, 2016 by Lyn

    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

    Much stronger now the second time around ’cause
    What can you do to me now?

    Ice candles were, Kai was discovering, harder than they looked. They didn’t want to stay in form, and when they did, they wanted to melt.

    Like everything else in this place.… Read on

    Don’t you know, it’s not easy
    When you gotta walk upon that line
    That’s why – you need
    That’s why – this is what you need

    Kai clutched her bag of gifts nervously as she headed to the gym on what would normally be their training time.… Read on

    And just in time
    In the right place
    Suddenly I will play my ace

    She’d done a good job of faking confidence when they started the challenge, but inside, Shahin had been a mess of nerves. She wanted this to work, but they weren’t the brightest cy’ree by a long shot, and they had so many weak links, links that could be yanked at any point by their Keepers or by their old damage.… Read on

    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?

    May 14, 2016 by Lyn

    “The team of mixed cy’rees will consist of Kailani cy’Regina, Wren cy’Maureen, Nydia cy’DJ, Taro cy’Akatil, Caity cy’Akatil and Renata cy’Akatil.” Kaia had been sitting straight up in her chair since Regine started talking; when the Director listed off her team, she grabbed excitedly for Taro’s arm.… Read on

    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

    August 20, 2015 by Lyn

    I don’t need no good advice
    No well-intentioned sacrifice

    Conrad looked pale, drawn, sick; he’d even broken a sweat. She was pushing him too hard, too fast, against this stupid geas, and she didn’t know the limits of it until she ran into them.… Read on
