  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. Horse-trading

    2

    August 26, 2016 by Lyn

    This story is written for Nat Ford’s request, thanks to the “Addergoole Wants You” comments-for-fics promotion.


    Kai frowned at the charts in front of her: genealogies, descriptions, birth dates and years.  You could follow patterns easily enough down any given genealogy, but that wasn’t what was making her frown.Read on


  3. Descriptions: Regine and Ambrus

    0

    August 11, 2016 by Lyn

    The Director of the Addergoole School and her assistant are seldom seen apart, although it is easy to miss Ambrus, as pretty as he is, in his Owner’s golden shadow. Although their features don’t put them that far apart in age – he perhaps in his early twenties, late teens, she in her late twenties, early thirties – when away from a stage setting, where they are both very much cool and professional, differences in their age seem larger – he acts more like a teenager when he’s relaxed, while she is always, even alone in her home, very stiff and very prim.… Read on


  4. Question: Arranged Arrangements?

    0

    August 10, 2016 by Lyn

    Will the staff members sometimes “encourage” certain pairs to get close to one another, in order to pass on certain traits? Or do they just keep extremely careful records and hope for the best?
    Dr. Caitrin answers:

    Officially, it is school policy that, while we require two children from each student, we allow the students to choose with whom they have those children.… Read on


  5. Question: Happy Birthday?

    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


  6. Question: Fade Back

    0

    August 10, 2016 by Lyn

    Inventrix asks:
    Is it possible for a Faded to ever become un-Faded?

    Regine answers::

    That is, sadly, more a question of definition than one with a concrete scientific answer. It comes down to pinpointing what makes someone “Faded” and at what point they actually Fade, as it were, into humanity.… Read on


  7. Question: Ties That Bind

    0

    August 10, 2016 by Lyn

    Guesty asks:
    What is the difference between Belonging and Geas? Not so much how you get there, we know a little bit about that. Is there something you’ll (have to) do while Belonging to someone that you could resist if you were just under a Geas or the other way round?

  8. Question: Following the Rules

    0

    August 9, 2016 by Lyn

    MysticalMage asks: Does every student have to parent two children, or just the males? If both sexes, do Ty (and Jamian) have to parent four?

    Professor VanderLinden answers:

    That’s a very good question, Tara. Why don’t you come on into my office so we can discuss it?… Read on


  9. Question: More Bitter Than Sweet

    0

    August 9, 2016 by Lyn

    Question for Regine: Have you ever been in love? If so, dish. If not, what’s the closest you’ve come to experiencing it?

    Regine begins:
    Love is an irrelevant emotion in general, and certainly, while useful in others, nothing but a hindrance to my current pursuit if found within myself.… Read on


  10. Question: Offspring

    0

    August 8, 2016 by Lyn

    To Ty, Jamian, or any other Addergoolian qualified to answer:

    If Ty and Jamian have children, will their offspring be true hermaphrodites?

    Ty answers:

    I don’t know. None of my other kids turned out herm, but, then again, none of them were with another herm, either, especially not with a pure-bred Daeva.… Read on


  11. Question: Open Letter

    0

    August 8, 2016 by Lyn

    Regine,

    What is the scholastic outline for students at Addergoole? Specifically, is this a four year school program? Are advanced students handled through specific courses meant to challenge them or can a student potentially graduate early? Conversely how are slow students dealt with?… Read on


  12. From Addergoole to Addergoole

    August 6, 2016 by Lyn

    April 11, Year Five of the Addergoole School

    Read about the Addergoole Fourteen  

    “I’ve been wondering, Professor. Why Addergoole?”

    It wasn’t the primary thing on her mind, of course. They were studying an array of Change descriptions and, of apparently more interest to her Mentor, “inherent non-Working abilities,” something that Kai hadn’t really been aware existed.… Read on

    August 4, 2016 by Lyn

    Year Five of the Addergoole School, after Chapter 120.

    She looked at the list of questions again. She’d made a good attempt at going through the other topics, but there was only one she really wanted to try for. She shouldn’t; it wasn’t her area of expertise, and her rare sessions with Regine had only begun to cover the topic, but how often did one get to delve into such a fun topic?… Read on


  14. Dawn

    August 3, 2016 by Lyn

    When the dawn comes
    Tonight will be a memory too
    And a new day will begin

    He glared at her, realizing that he could, that nothing in her orders prohibited anger. “That’s my mind! My memory!” My children.

    She looked taken aback, but he was too angry to be concerned.… Read on

    August 3, 2016 by Lyn

    Has the moon lost her memory?
    She is smiling alone
    In the lamplight
    The withered leaves collect at my feet

    “This is the one,” he told his owner. She, who had no place in the ceremony to come, still nodded, understanding what he meant even if the boy’s mother would not.Read on


  16. Moonlight

    August 3, 2016 by Lyn

    Memory
    All alone in the moonlight
    I can smile at the old days
    I was beautiful then

    He came to consciousness again, this time back to his body, as well, lying on something firm but comfortable – a bed? Someone was holding his hand, someone with cool, dry hands that were nonetheless squeezing very firmly.… Read on


  17. Memory

    0

    August 3, 2016 by Lyn

    It’s so easy to leave me
    All alone with the memory
    Of my days in the sun

    Ambrus swum back to consciousness, although he had the feeling he wasn’t yet supposed to. His body, at least, wasn’t moving; he couldn’t open his eyes and could barely feel his back, much less his extremities.… Read on


  18. You’re a Jet all the Way

    0

    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


  19. Ill Met

    0

    August 1, 2016 by Lyn

    The first day of Year Four of the Addergoole School.

    The students bounced, the new ones with nervous anticipation, the older ones licking their chops, prepared to start the game again. Written large on the Third Cohort’s faces was the same message he’d seen last year on the faces of the Second Cohort: This time I’ll be on top.Read on


  20. If You Believed

    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


  21. Give Me Reason

    July 26, 2016 by Lyn

    And your voice is all I heard
    That I get what I deserve
    So give me reason

    After All in a Day’s Work

    Regine had company, and Ambrus hated it. He stood in the kitchen of her cottage, crafting hors d’oeuvres, because that way she wouldn’t tell him to leave.… Read on


  22. 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


  23. 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


  24. Yes, Mistress

    1

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    Ambrus was terrified. It wasn’t so much the being passed around like so much chattel – he had been being bought and sold and traded since he was fifteen – and even to women before – it was more the fact that she hadn’t said a word since she slid her hand under his ponytail and grabbed the back of his collar.… Read on


  25. 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
