  1. Descriptions: Emrys & Taro


    August 11, 2016 by Lyn

    Emrys (EM-rees) cy’Drake*

    Fourth Cohort

    If you can’t stand the heat…

    On another man, Emrys’ pointed, beardless chin, smooth skin and long, silky midnight-brown hair might be called effeminate; even his narrow, aristocratic nose could be called delicate.

    It is in part because of the natural daintiness of his features, and a certain slimness to his body, that Emrys chooses to carry and portray himself as he does.… Read on

  2. Winning


    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

  3. Just Another Day


    August 2, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place on Friday, Week Three, Year Five of the Addergoole School
    (after Chapter 47 and before Chapter 50.)

    ‘Lisha was smiling when he met her after their last classes of the day – grinning, actually, bouncing and cheerful and happy.… Read on

  4. 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

  5. Something to Drink About


    August 1, 2016 by Lyn

    coat_of_armsSSt. Patrick’s Day, Year 4 of the Addergoole School. 

    “Another drink?” Ivette was wearing just over the legal minimum, all of it emerald-green, and had topped it with a green sequined top hat; she looked like the cover girl for Fuck Bunnies of Ireland, and she was holding a tall bottle of expensive Irish whiskey.… 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. Acceptance


    August 1, 2016 by Lyn

    Year Four of the Addergoole School, Day One

    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

  8. Interlude: Vlad


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “Hey, Vlad.” Taro thumped down on the couch with two beers and handed one over. They were the only ones in the suite’s common room right now – ‘Bina-and-Cassidy were out with the babies, Kai and Conrad were out at Kai’s practice.… Read on

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. Chapter 137: Kailani


    June 23, 2016 by Lyn

    There’s no light at the end of the tunnel
    Can’t you know I’m looking for trouble
    Obviously, it’s been looking for me

    “Are they supposed to be… all up in my face like that?” Kai frowned uncertainly at the way the bodice squeezed in and up her chest.… Read on

  12. Chapter 136: Shahin


    June 23, 2016 by Lyn

    Yo, you wanna hit us? We can hit back
    If you talk that talk, you got’s to live that.
    This is self defense

    Shahin had gotten her shopping trip.  It had taken some coaxing, some cajoling, and the support of Carter, Kendra (given some practice, the mouse would have teeth. … Read on

  13. Chapter 133: Kailani


    June 21, 2016 by Lyn

    If everything was different, you’d be my man.
    Sometimes I wish we were more than just friends

    For all the drama of the trip, it was really a lot of fun. Kai leaned back in the bus, between Taro and Nydia, where she’d been most of the vacation, and pondered how fun it was to have friends, to really be able to hang out with people who didn’t hate her.… Read on

  14. Chapter 131: Kailani


    June 15, 2016 by Lyn

    Every move you make
    Every vow you break
    Every smile you fake
    Every claim you stake
    I’ll be watching you

    They were all still reeling from the mess at the Capitol the day before. Even Shahin had folded in on herself, Carter and Channing were cautious and embarrassed seeming, only Taro seeming pretty much himself.… Read on

  15. Chapter 130: Shahin


    June 15, 2016 by Lyn

    I wish the real world
    Would just stop hassling me

    They were something of a ragtag group, Shahin mused, as they headed out to the Texas State Capitol on the fourth day of their trip. The Fifth Cohort were adjusting well enough to being back out “in the world;” they’d only been in Addergoole for a couple months, after all.… Read on

  16. Chapter 125: Kailani


    June 9, 2016 by Lyn

    Kai’s skirt was shorter than she liked, but Mabina had made it for her, and she didn’t want to seem ungrateful. She tugged the blue-and-white gingham a little lower, and checked her watch. “We’re late,” she grumbled.

    “Fashionably late,” Mea corrected her, still fussing with her own hair, which had been poofed out into a golden-dyed halo around her head.… Read on

  17. Chapter 122: Kailani


    June 7, 2016 by Lyn

    We can never know about the days to come
    But we think about them anyway
    And I wonder if I’m really with you now
    Or just chasin’ after some finer day

    “‘The escarpment’s scenic canyons were home for Indians of several cultures, including the Folsom culture of more than 10,000 years ago,’” Kai read excitedly.… Read on

  18. Chapter 119: Kailani


    June 7, 2016 by Lyn

    There’s saints and sinners
    Life’s a gamble and you might lose
    There’s cowards and heroes
    Both have been known now to break the rules

    Kai hated losing. She hated losing more when it involved the smug, self-satisfied look on Agatha’s face.… Read on

  19. Chapter 113b: Kailani


    June 3, 2016 by Lyn

    As you wait for rain to fall
    Only God knows
    The whole sky glows
    Maybe lightning strikes twice

    After their study session, Kai lingered in the hallway, chewing on her lip. She didn’t want to go to Caitrin’s, but she’d promised.… Read on

  20. Chapter 113: Kailani


    June 3, 2016 by Lyn

    Let me take the wheel and I’ll crash this car
    Do you have to make this so hard?

    Kailani spent Sunday morning racking her brain for an answer that wouldn’t come. It was a relatively new experience, and she found it off-putting, disconcerting, even frustrating.… Read on

  21. Chapter 101: Kailani


    May 26, 2016 by Lyn

    And your wise friends might say
    This is how we survive
    But I know in my own mind
    Can’t you see it’s a clever disguise?
    This friendly advice

    She hadn’t managed to get Conrad a new collar on Thursday after all; she’d spent the evening being fussed over, aching and sore and painfully pensive.… Read on

  22. Chapter 86: Kailani


    May 16, 2016 by Lyn

    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

  23. Interlude: Mea


    May 14, 2016 by Lyn

    For all the excitement of the previous night, it hadn’t been a thrilling day for Mea. Classes proceeded as usual; even Kailani, whom she’d almost bonded with a little that morning, was back to snapping at her to keep away from her man.… 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. Prelude: Mea


    September 13, 2015 by Lyn

    Mea walked the halls in the dim light maintained through the night, humming softly to herself . Others in this situation might have crept stealthily, or slunk in shame, but not her. So she was coming home from Rozen’s room in the dim pre-dawn hours, so what?… Read on
