  1. Interlude: Xaviera


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “You’re nice,” Xaviera lied. Sprawled under Ofir, his stubby little bat wings spread like an insufficient umbrella over them, she found it hard not to giggle at him. So angry, so cute… he was like a Chihuahua, compared to the Masters she’d had.… Read on

  2. Chapter 184: Shahin


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    Friday Afternoon, Second Friday in April, 2000

    Shahin needed some time alone with Emrys. She needed to talk about Xaviera, about what they were doing to do. Her visions, the girl’s behavior… they weren’t helping her. They weren’t teaching her independence.… Read on

  3. Chapter 181: Shahin


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    She leads a lonely life

    When she woke up late in the morning light
    And the day had just begun
    She opened up her eyes and thought
    Oh what a morning

    First Saturday in April 2, 2000

    Shahin dreamed.

    The boy had his father’s eyes.Read on

  4. Chapter 178: Shahin


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    You could say I’m a little bit crazy
    You could call me insane
    Walkin’ ’round with all these whispers
    Runnin’ ’round here in my brain
    I just can’t help but hear ’em
    Man, I can’t avoid it

    The first Sunday in April

    Shahin lay in bed, once again between her husband and their Kept, idly stroking the scales on the back of Xaviera’s neck while the girl slept.… Read on

  5. Chapter 175: Shahin


    July 19, 2016 by Lyn

    Life is the key,
    what you want it to be
    Release your mind
    Release your mind
    Open yourself to the universal truth
    Free your mind
    Free your mind

    Second to last week in March, 2000

    “How do you think Tolly is managing?”… Read on

  6. Chapter 173: Kailani


    July 17, 2016 by Lyn

    Kai smiled at her friend and her groom, at Yngvi’s elaborate bow, at the words of the poem that he’d chosen. She smiled until her face hurt, Xaviera’s words still stinging, a little. Not the time to be jealous.She wasn’t?… Read on

  7. Chapter 172: Shahin


    July 17, 2016 by Lyn

    You know our love was meant to be
    The kind of love that lasts forever
    And I need you here with me
    From tonight until the end of time

    “Are you nervous?” Kai asked, for what had to be the seventeenth time.… Read on

  8. Chapter 166b: Shahin


    July 13, 2016 by Lyn

    “Perhaps you’d like to speak first today, Shahin.” Carter’s gaze was penetrating, and, despite his gentle tone, there was a clear force behind his words. She nodded slowly. It was fair. She cringed. It was fair, she had to admit.

    Of course, he probably thought it would be Xaviera that was foremost on her mind today; the girl sat beside her, clearly not quite at ease in the unfamiliar cy’ree meeting.… Read on

  9. Chapter 166: Shahin


    July 13, 2016 by Lyn

    Someone help us ’cause we’re doing our best
    Trying to make things work, but man, these times are hard

    “I think part of the problem is, she doesn’t know she’s broken.” Shahin looked over their late-night Café dinner at Emrys, her lips pursed in thought.… Read on

  10. Chapter 160: Shahin


    July 8, 2016 by Lyn

    And we, we are the conquerors
    We are the soldiers, we are the lovers
    That’s why we fall in love
    That’s why we believe in love, that’s why we marry

    “Did your mother RSVP yet?” Shahin looked up from the guest list at Emrys, and shifted her position, again, trying to get comfortable.… Read on

  11. Chapter 151: Shahin


    July 5, 2016 by Lyn

    Here but for the grace of God go you
    You’ll be merry
    I’ll be merry
    Though merry ain’t in my vocabulary

    “I don’t understand what you want me to do here, M… Shahin.” Xaviera’s frustrated complaint as they entered the Store was muted, but it was still a complaint.… Read on

  12. Chapter 145: Shahin


    June 30, 2016 by Lyn

    They gave me a life that’s not so easy to live
    And then they sent me on my way
    I left my love and forgot my dreams
    I lost them all along the way

    Shahin didn’t want to come off as giddy and dippy, to gush like a teenager (Shahin, her mind reminded her dryly, you are a teenager), so she spent time at lunch focusing on her breathing and, when that wasn’t helping the urge to sing out “we’re getting married!… Read on

  13. Chapter 139: Shahin


    June 28, 2016 by Lyn

    Something’s made your eyes go cold
    C’mon, c’mon, don’t leave me like this
    I thought I had you figured out
    Something’s gone terribly wrong

    Shahin hugged her cy’ree-mates goodbye – Kendra and Callista were already beginning to shut down, to close up – and hurried down the hall, forgoing seemliness for speed.… Read on

  14. Prelude: Emrys


    June 23, 2016 by Lyn

    Emrys paused a second to catch his breath as his date for the dance emerged from her room. Who’s her fairy godmother? It was quite a makeover: her golden hair was done up artfully, rather than left in its typical straightforward ponytail; her torn jeans were now a radiant, glittering gown; even her shoes – yes, she had actually reproduced the look faithfully.… Read on

  15. Interlude: Aelgifu


    June 15, 2016 by Lyn

    Lunch on Friday was uncomfortable and quiet; Yngvi was still in the infirmary, dealing with a Change that looked suspiciously similar to Ayla’s (another thing to blame Aelfgar for), which left her with the table of awkward. Emrys was cranky and pretending not to be, Xaviera sullen and nervous, and Ioanna jittery, so Ayla focused on calming thoughts, the way she did, sometimes, when Shahin was having a bad day, and held Io’s hand tightly.… Read on

  16. Interlude: Xaviera


    June 14, 2016 by Lyn

    Her heart was pounding as she crept through the halls. Last night, she hadn’t pushed it. Mistress had just left, and Master was cranky. But it had been long enough that it should be safe, and she needed as much time as she could get, for her plan to work.… Read on

  17. Chapter 121: Shahin


    June 7, 2016 by Lyn

    I can’t make my own decisions
    Or make any with precision
    Well maybe you should tie me up
    So I don’t go where you don’t want me

    Shahin was trying to ignore the fact that she would be leaving Emrys for two weeks, but situations didn’t seem to want to allow her to do so.… Read on

  18. Interlude: Xaviera


    June 7, 2016 by Lyn

    Inasmuch as the ice queen had emotions, Shahin didn’t seem all that thrilled with cy’Pelletier’s win. Xaviera wanted to ask her about it, but it wasn’t her place to question her Keepers, certainly not for such an insignificant curiosity.

    She would’ve liked to be going herself, but she’d been realistic about it from the beginning; there was very little chance that cy’Akinobu was going to reach the semi-finals, even.… Read on

  19. Chapter 115: Shahin


    June 6, 2016 by Lyn

    Your mother warned you there’d be days like these
    But she didn’t tell you when the world has brought you down to your knees
    That, I’ll be there for you

    Monday found Shahin in a pleasant mood. Things seemed to be progressing all right with Xaviera, they were going wonderfully with Emrys, and in less than a week, they would have this cy’ree challenge dealt with and, hopefully, have won.… Read on

  20. Chapter 112b: Shahin


    June 3, 2016 by Lyn

    I know you know
    I’m wrapped around your finger
    You’re so, you’re so
    Beautiful and dangerous
    Hot and cold

    Eris’ words were swimming in Shahin’s mind as she met Emrys after their cy’ree meetings. “Cy’Akinobu should be getting out of their meeting, too,” she murmured.… Read on

  21. Chapter 109: Shahin


    June 2, 2016 by Lyn

    When I’m crying out for change
    You tell me it’s just growing pains
    Oh, I’ve made mistakes
    And yes I know, it’s growing pains

    Touch, Kai had said, and the redhead’s notes had borne that out. It seemed wrong, it seemed a violation for both of them, but she could remember what Emrys’ hand had felt like on her skin when he had Owned her.… Read on

  22. Chapter 108: Jamian


    May 31, 2016 by Lyn

    Bad advice is just the same as good advice.
    Everybody makes
    Occasional mistakes

    Don’t think about Melchior. Don’t think about Melchior. It was easier to do when he was Jamian, not wearing the body that had not thinking about that damnit, and so he spent the day that way, glad that Ty was self-absorbed or oblivious or just not caring enough to not notice or comment on which skin he wore.… Read on

  23. Chapter 106: Shahin


    May 26, 2016 by Lyn

    Author’s Note:
    Okay, I have to admit that by this point, the writing had gotten pretty bad.  That is a large portion of why I’m re-writing the entire thing – Book I is drafted already!

    I think Book 13 goes back to being passably decent, but from this point on I really do have to apologize.  Read on

  24. Interlude: Xaviera


    May 26, 2016 by Lyn

    So, what do you want to do with her in the meantime?”

    “Do with her?” The Fifthie turned from her boyfriend to finally look at Xaviera – up at her; she towered over both of them – before shrugging and looking back to Emrys.… Read on

  25. Chapter 103: Shahin


    May 26, 2016 by Lyn

    That drip of hurt, that pint of shame
    Goes away; just play the game!
    You’re living in America, at the end of the millennium
    You’re living in America; leave your conscience at the tone

    “Shahin cy’Pelletier, we Belong each to the other, for all time, unending.”Read on
