  2. Question: Skin Deep


    August 10, 2016 by Lyn

    tenaciousN asks:
    This question is for anyone at Addergoole. How do Masks work? Is the magic a visual illusion, or does it physically change the wearer?

    Laurel Valerian answers:

    This is one of these “mostly A, some B, and a little bit of C” answers.… Read on

  3. Question: Be All That You Can Be


    August 8, 2016 by Lyn

    Do all fae and half-fae go through a Becoming? If not, is there something about Addergoole that prompts Becomings?

    Laurel Valerian answers:

    To answer any question about the Ellehemaei, the fae, you first have to understand that, in answering the question, we’re talking about “right now,” not, “the way things were;” more than that, we’re also talking about “the people we know,” not fae in other countries or other realms.… Read on

  4. Jolly Old St. Nicholas…


    August 5, 2016 by Lyn

    Reid sealed the last envelope, and stacked them neatly in a pile on his desk. There weren’t that many – he didn’t speak to his father, and his mother and siblings had proven far more human than he had. Of what few loves he had had through the decades, most were also gone, and a few simply wished not to be reminded of him.… Read on

  5. Spellunking


    August 2, 2016 by Lyn

    Between Years Four and Five

    Laurel came back from her vacation in late August, tearing into the school like a whirlwind, her arms laden with bags, her brain wild with new thoughts and her hair flying every which way. She grabbed two of her favorite students and dragged them to the Library with her, talking ninety miles an hour until she realized that Alisha and Rowan had no idea at all what she was talking about.… Read on

  6. Making a Name


    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    The summer between years one and two of the Addergoole School

    “Are you sure?” Even as she asked, Ginger was setting out food on Maureen’s wide patio table.

    “I’m sure. You’re doing fine, dear, and people have relaxed around you. Now the trick is to make them think twice.”… Read on

  7. Chapter 183c: Jamian


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “He talked to her! When I told him not to! When I told her not to.” Ofir’s protests, too, were losing steam. He glanced up at Professor Valerian, found her frowning, and looked back to Luke.

    The PE teacher sat down on the desk with a thump.… Read on

  8. Chapter 35: Kailani


    August 18, 2015 by Lyn

    I’m learning to fly, but I ain’t got wings
    Coming down is the hardest thing

    “Nice collar.”

    One row of lockers over, Kailani cringed at the snide tone in Xaviera’s voice. The ophidian blonde woman had left her alone so far, but she had the demeanor and self-satisfaction of a bully, and Kai pitied her current target, while being relieved it wasn’t her.… Read on

  9. Interlude: Regine


    August 12, 2015 by Lyn

    The last class of Friday had come to a close, and Regine gathered her teachers and staff in the conference room beside her office to discuss their charges.

    They spent a few minutes on the returning students – second, third, and fourth cohort, and the one remaining first cohort still in school – and then turned their attention to the twenty shining jewels that were the fifth cohort.… Read on

  10. Chapter 3: Jamian


    August 12, 2015 by Lyn

    …in the Mirror

    After a brief breakfast, Jamian faced his first class with something resembling excitement.

    The class was History of English Literature, with Dr. VanderLinden, who was a laid-back, affable man, too tall, too blonde, and too young-seeming to fit Jamian’s view of a professor.… Read on
