  1. Descriptions: Vladimir


    August 10, 2016 by Lyn

    Vladimir (VLAD-uh-MEER) cy’Luca*
    Third Cohort

    Vlad is half an inch (1.27 meters) taller than Conrad, ten pounds (4.54 kilos) heavier, all of if muscle, and still scrawny rather than lanky, skinny rather than athletic – on a mad day, he brings to mind a puppy not quite grown into his body.… Read on

  2. Christmas Sunshine


    August 5, 2016 by Lyn

    ‘Lisha woke smiling. That in itself was a miracle, but Vlad was hoping for more today. He’d been very secretive about his plans, telling her nothing more than “dress up nicely, something that will go well with your Mask.”

    That had been enough to trigger a flood of questions, but he’d managed to just smile and tell her “you’ll see.”… 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. Valentine’s Day Special: Three Short Vignettes


    August 1, 2016 by Lyn

    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

  7. 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

  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 174: Jamian


    July 17, 2016 by Lyn

    Jamian and Ty, as the only members of their crew invited to the wedding, ended up sharing a table with Mabina, Cassidy, Vlad, Lisha, and Conrad. It was, to say the least, a little uncomfortable. Jamian kept expecting Mabina to grill him about his so-called misbehavior with Kendra, or Kai’s odd situation with Anatoliy.… Read on

  10. 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

  11. Chapter 71: Kailani


    September 13, 2015 by Lyn

    Does the pain weigh out the pride?
    And you look for a place to hide?

    Tolly’s arms were surprisingly gentle and comforting as he carried her through the halls. He was so big, it was like being a child again… no.… Read on

  12. Chapter 44: Kailani


    August 21, 2015 by Lyn

    Oh, it’s like I started breathing on the night we kissed,
    And I can’t remember what I ever did before

    “…That’s how I’d solve it, at least.” Kai looked up shyly at Vlad, uncertain if she’d overstepped her bounds. People could get really touchy about help with their homework, sometimes, but he had asked.… Read on

  13. Interlude: Conrad


    August 20, 2015 by Lyn

    Conrad was trying not to pace, while walking a circuit around the suite’s living room. Kailani had been gone longer than he found comfortable, even if the clock on the TV did say it had only been 15 minutes.

    Mabina and Cassidy had tried to talk to him, but he was wound too tightly to be decent company.… Read on

  14. Chapter 41.5: Kailani


    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

  15. Chapter 41: Kailani


    August 19, 2015 by Lyn

    And I said yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Bet you don’t know what your parents do

    “So, what Word did you end up with?” Taro ambushed her with the question as they sat down for dinner, seeming interested enough in the answer that he didn’t notice the little dance of seating going on, leaving her between Conrad and Vlad and him to Mabina-and-Cassidy’s left.… Read on

  16. Chapter 14.5: Kailani


    August 13, 2015 by Lyn

    the potential of you and me

    Vlad saw them first, and smiled; Conrad, uncharacteristically, was not smiling, frowning as if trying to puzzle something out. He caught her looking at him, and the grin was back, brilliant and blinding. “There you are!… Read on

  17. Chapter 8: Kailani


    August 12, 2015 by Lyn

    …trust who I’m gonna be

    As the noise rose around the dining hall after Doctor Regine’s announcements, Kailani looked around the room. Luke the gym teacher was definitely flexing wings by the back door to the hall, and Dr. VanderLinden, the Literature teacher, has a set of ram horns curling out of his soft blonde hair.… Read on

  18. Chapter 5: Kailani


    August 12, 2015 by Lyn

    Let me enlighten you…

    The small dining hall seemed louder every time Kailani entered it, but less chaotic, too, as returning students reasserted established patterns and new students came to their own equilibrium.

    She had found her place already, or, rather, Taro had found it for her.… Read on
