  1. Chapter 3B – Thinking while Breathing


    August 28, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    “Something interesting?” Tairiekie doodled a diagram in the margins of her notes. From the looks of things, it was something involving humanic aether and the balance of the Three. Enrie decided it was best to ignore that. Enrie nodded. “In the Estya House lounge. A couple students were talking about …

  2. Chapter 3A: If it Breathes, it can be said to Think


    August 26, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    They had every class of the day together. That was the whole purpose of their team and their larger eighteen-person group, after all: they spent all of their class time together and in theory, they formed a bond. On some level, Enrie supposed it was working. She knew the names …

  3. Chapter 2C – Deep Thoughts Distracted


    August 24, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    “Well, that was fun.” Tairikie was bright and smiling as they left Biological Systems. Enrie tried to smile, too; at least Saydrie looked nearly as shell-shocked as she did. “I wonder when we’ll get our grades back. I’m trying to make it on the board,” she confided. “I mean, I …

  4. Chapter 2B – Thinking Deeply


    August 21, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Enrie could think of any number of things that she’d rather do than take the Biological Systems test. Climb a mountain alone without ropes or crampons. Walk all the way from one end of the continent to the other – starting in the South in summer and ending in the …

  5. Chapter 2A: Beware When A Bitrani Starts to Think Deeply


    August 19, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    “I can’t wait for the test today in Biological Systems.” Tairikie was bubbling over as they left breakfast for their first class. Enrie caught Riensin studying Taikie, a faint, slightly-lost smile on his face. Well, Taikie did that to Enrie, too, and sometimes to Saydrie, she thought. But that didn’t …

  6. Chapter 1C – (Not) Telling Secrets


    August 17, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Enrie was bubbling over with excitement the next morning. She’d spent her evening — after finishing her tablet-weaving — reading up on the basics of treaty law, and then she’d spent the night dreaming about finding missing treaties crammed between other books in the library, or hiding in the back …

  7. Chapter 1B – Secrets indeed


    August 14, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Every House’s lounges seemed to have their own set of chatter and background noise. Enrie had spent time in Tairiekie’s dormitory – House Akaizen – and less time in Saydrie’s – Onano House. In the engineering dorm, the discussion (as she had teased Taikie) tended to be about “can you …

  8. (Belated) Hiatus Story – Libkazaari – Instructing the Instructor


    August 12, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    “I don’t see the problem.” Instructor Pelnyen was sulking. He certainly would have called it something else, but he was definitely sulking, slouched in Libkazaari’s chair looking for all the world like a first-year student who had been caught out doing something wrong. In a sense, she supposed, he was. Not …

  9. Edally Academy: The Missing Treaty – Chapter 1A


    August 10, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    There is No Such Thing as a Secret “Do Bitrani — real Bitrani, I mean, from the enclaves—” “Bitrani Nationalists,” Saydrie offered. “Although we usually use the word in our own language because it panics people less: Cevati Bitrani.” Enrie filed that away in the growing pile of information she kept …
