  1. Chapter 9A: It is Better to Ask Forgiveness Than Permission

    5

    October 30, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Enrie had to get rid of Riensin.  She still wasn’t entirely sure what was going on and that meant that she didn’t dare share it with more people than just her team.  “We should get out of here.  He may have left the door open, but that won’t stop Pelnyen …

    Instructor Pelnyen’s complaints faded down the hall, along with the calm, amused counterpoint of House Monitor Libkazaari.  Riensin and Enrie were already in Instructor Pelnyen’s office and Taikie and Saydrie were close behind. “Should we…?” Tairiekie hesitated in the doorway. “Yes, we should.” Enrie put aside her own nerves.  “This …

    “I don’t know if that went well or badly or something in between.” Riensin might be saying he was uncertain, but his grin told another story. “You don’t think he really meant it, do you?  That we should stay out?”  Taikie chewed on her lip.  “We have to take that …

    “…and with the study of the way weasels use aether that we are covering in Biological Systems currently, we can see that the weasels who spend the most time among people become more like people.  They become brighter.  They solve problems faster and solve more complicated problems – there’s Ezhtovevky’s …

  5. Chapter 7C: Is Nothing Concrete?

    Tairiekie was smiling when they left Biological Systems.   “I wonder if you can test them for aether use?  I wonder what you’d call it, then, if you wanted to be accurate?  Natural aetherics?  Hunh, you’d think they’d already call it that, then.  You don’t think Instructor Kaasmasik is wrong, do …

  6. Chapter 7B: Yet More Abstract

    October 19, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Taikie was still mad the next day.  Enrie could tell by the way she was walking, even before she said a word.  She could tell even by the way her hair was braided.  Taikie, like many Calenyena, used more braids the more formal the situation, and Tairiekie seemed to consider …

    Enrie’s mind was in the Library, but the rest of her had to be back in classes.  She sat next to Taikie and doodled her way through History, cups of coffee filling her margins.  If they were puling books from the Library, she was going to need some other way …

    Taikie really hadn’t meant to sneak around behind her friend. She liked Saydrie. She trusted him. And it wasn’t like she could understand anything he was saying, not when he was talking to other Bitrani. But here she was, moving cautiously from doorway to doorway, trailing along behind Saydrie, Darnio, …

    October 9, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Taikie hadn’t meant to follow Saydrie. She had intended on going to the Engineering Library.  She had some theories about humanic aether and she couldn’t very well work on them when her team-mates were around.  Not with the way that any discussion of it made Enrie mad and Saydrie worried. …

    “What are you playing at, anyway?” Kekdela had three books open in front of her but she was drawing doodles of goat horns in her notebook. “You know this really could get you expelled. It could get everyone expelled. Me and Tesdes included.” Tesdes looked up at the mention of his …

    October 5, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    There are several newspapers in circulation throughout Reiassan. The most well-known and widely-circulated, the Empire’s Paper, comes out of Lannamer, from the Emperor’s own press, and covers primarily nation-wide events.  It is printed weekly and delivered to all corners of the land. Most everyday people, however, get their news from the local …

  12. Interlude: Careers After Edally

    October 2, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Edally Academy and the other six schools of its sort were built for many purposes, not the least of which was to promulgate a consistent narrative about Calenta and its culture throughout the entire continent. The schools’ more commonly spoken-of goal, however, is to train up professionals in many fields. The …
