  1. Chapter 31A: As a Team

    4

    May 25, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Bleed for it. Enrie didn’t know if she liked that.  She didn’t want anyone to get hurt.  She didn’t… She didn’t want things to stay the same.  She kept stewing over things as they made it through their classes.  Riensin and Kekdela were’t talking to them; Tesdes probably wasn’t, either, …

  2. Chapter 29A: Paddling on Stone

    Enrie smiled and nodded and note-took her way through class, not letting herself look at her teammates for too long. In the glances she took, she could see that Taikie was pale and worried-looking; Saydrie looked bitter, a surprising and unpleasant look on his face. Instructor Kaasmasik, she couldn’t help …

  3. Chapter 28C: Into the Fire

    4

    May 9, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Enrie had a stolen book with possibly-treasonous material in her book bag — she  remembered well how Taikie’s room had been rifled through just a few months ago — and a lump in her chest that she was trying to ignore.  She also had a plan; a plan that wasn’t …

  4. Chapter 20A: The Overladen Apple Tree

    January 28, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Enrie found herself clinging to Saydrie’s hand again, this time for her own comfort rather than his.  Taikie trailed behind them as they walked to House Monitor Libkazaari’s office.  They were all quiet.  They  had been quiet since they left the dining hall. Perhaps she should have been expecting to …

  5. Chapter 18b: Hide the Dirty Laundry

    “Enrie!”  Taikie was outraged, but even still she managed to keep her anger to a loud whisper.  “Enrie, we’re not supposed to be looking into any of that stuff!” “I wasn’t!  I was just looking up Emperor Ipaagtyentaag, and then it turned out he was too close to… to it, …

  6. Chapter 11C: And Instructors Help

    2

    November 16, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    “Hey guys, where’d you go? After… Philosophy?”  Riensin plopped down between Enrie and Taikie at the dinner table.  “I got, uh, distracted talking to Instructor Dainanan.” “Oh, is that where you went?” Kekdela set herself down across from Riensin – right up against Saydrie – and Tesdes sat down on …

  7. Chapter 8A: The Power of Thought

    October 23, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    “…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 …

  8. Chapter 5C: Missing Pots

    5

    September 25, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Enrie looked at her notes. She’d written it down, the writing sloppy but her meaning clear. “The Coffee Treaty, signed in Arran City Federent. Year 25 of Empress Azhnatarennezha’s reign.” She looked back at the document, ancient and brush-written, the edges crumbling. She’d been reading a section around the Arran …

    September 21, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    They had a plan. It was not, in Enrie’s professional opinion, a very good plan – more of an outline of the start of a plan than anything you’d go into a hostile negotiating situation with. But they were, as Kekdela pointed out, first-year students, and it was at the very …

  10. Chapter 3B – Thinking while Breathing

    4

    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 …

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

    3

    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 …

  12. Chapter Ten: May Our Failures be Small, Educational, and Overlooked by our Enemies

    10

    September 17, 2014 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    “He was covered in scorch marks and so were both of his teammates.” Tairiekie hadn’t intended to walk in on two adults arguing. She’d meant to go find Saydrie, who hadn’t shown up to breakfast. After their adventure the day before, she couldn’t really fault him for hiding, but they …
