    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

    This story takes place early in the third week of the fifth year of the Addergoole School (during Book Three)

    He was at his most human when he’d been hanging out with his friends – and so was she, needing the breather, the space apart, to remember the self that wasn’t focused solely on him.… Read on

    This story takes place the morning of the second Sunday of the fifth year of the Addergoole School (Just after Chapter 30).

    Nikita slipped into Shiva’s bedroom Sunday morning just as she was waking up. He’d been there when she went to sleep, a warm, soothing presence for her to snuggle against, but she hadn’t noticed him leaving.… Read on

    This story takes place the night of the second Friday of the fifth year of the Addergoole School (On the same day as Chapter 19, but later in the day).

    There were never any room parties the night before Hell Night.… Read on

    Christmas Break, Year Five of the Addergoole School

    Ty had given Jamian a choice. By this point, he’d learned how rare that really was, to be given clear-cut choices. It hadn’t made the decision all that much easier; in the end, what had decided him was the fear that he’d be sitting at the dinner table and switch from “him” to “her” in front of his stepfather.… Read on

    Last Day of Classes, Year Four

    “It’s almost the end of the year.”

    Niki looked up at Shiva, who was looming over him on the couch. “Yeah?”

    “You’ve been keeping Tya on pins and needles all year. I’d say ‘dicking her around, but…'”

    “But she’s got her own dick,” Niki muttered bitterly.… Read on

    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

    “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

    Please, have my baby, yeah I’m talkin’ to you
    If you want to have my baby then here’s what you do

    Parties, Jamian mused, would probably be more entertaining if he weren’t Kept. As it was, he and Niki were once again handling most of the clean-up, while Manira sat by watching and being less than useful.… Read on

    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

    Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?

    “Okay, Kai, it’s been half an hour, and I’m out of string.”

    “But we’ve barely gotten anywhere!” She’d agreed, though, to stop after half an hour. Reluctantly, she planted her feet.… Read on

    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

    Will you figure out
    How you can change it
    And rearrange it
    And turn it all around?
    You will learn by trial and error

    She pulled him away from other people as soon as she could after class, her concern about the strange Word momentarily forgotten.… 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

    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

    You gotta go for what you know
    To make everybody see
    In order to fight the powers that be

    Jaya listened to the crew talk, content for a bit to snuggle into Ty’s embrace and listen. But something that Shiva and Niki had said was pricking at the back of her mind.… Read on

    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

    I walk right through the door.
    Walk right through the door.
    Hey all right! If I get by

    True to his word, Jamian left his bedroom door open, and left Seralondae sitting on his bed while he changed his clothes in the bathroom.… Read on

    We’re running with the shadows of the night,
    So baby take my hand, you’ll be all right

    “Hardly,” he chuckled. “There’s maybe a hundred of us here, out of six billion people. You don’t think you were chosen randomly?”

    She sighed, and looked mournfully at her empty glass.… Read on

    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

    Next time you point a finger,
    I’ll point you to the mirror.
    This is the last second chance!

    “Sulking?”

    Shiva and Niki approached Ty’s position on the couch as if they’d choreographed their moves, which, knowing Shiva, they very well might have; Shiva took his right and Niki his left, bracketing him.… Read on

    688046 (1)This is what you really didn’t know
    This is where the truth don’t lie
    You find out who your friends are

    For the second time in two weeks, Jamian woke up in a bed not his own, laying on his side on the slick silk sheets, with Ty’s lavender-and-leather scent in his nose, a hand carelessly flopped over him.… Read on

    Part of me is fighting this, but part of me is gone.

    Jamian took in Nikita’s words without really understanding them at first. “It hits you hard, the first couple times she pulls the leash,” the boy had said, and Jamian wasted a moment wondering why Niki was telling him about Shiva, and another moment wondering how fucked up the kid was, anyway, to find it comforting to – and then he wasted a third long moment trying to figure out exactly what they were talking about.… Read on

    They ran wild through the halls, whooping and laughing, spraying errant students with their water guns, sometimes lassoing them with Phelen’s long strings of light. Most people ran, shrieking in that carnival-haunted-house half-terror that’s as much glee as fear; those that didn’t, they sprayed harder, or pulled out the blue water pistols, and drenched them with thick purple Kool-Aid.… Read on
