    The meme is here: Give me the names of two characters and I will tell you why character A loves character B.  Here is clare_dragonfly‘s second prompt: Riensin and Tairiekie. Riensin knew he was handsome. He didn’t take it as any particular virtue of his — he had the same face as …

    “I’ve got the ear of the Emperor, you’re right here,” Lirnilalie pointed out.  “So listen.  To me, an Imperial Princess–“ Somewhere behind her, Riensin cleared his throat. Elelakorra chuckled.  “Lyirnilalie, I think the entire point is that you have repudiated your title and it has repudiated you.  By that standard, …

    Enrie held her breath.  There was nothing else she could do; protesting that she wasn’t a liar wasn’t going to do anything but make her look more guilty.  Looking at Libkazaari wasn’t going to do anything but say she didn’t know what was going on — which she didn’t, of …

    Saydrie rescued her. “…we forget that our Emperors’ ancestors once had to undergo seven tests to be considered worthy to even be in the succession, and that our Governors and Emperor all were once kalōkāt; war-leaders, leaders who had been proven both in battle and in peace.  We forget that …

    Whatever pursuit there had been had gotten stuck in the dusk and muck or captured by the constabulary. The rest of the group took turns changing into their nicest clothes as Libkazarri and then Korten maneuvered the wagon through the narrow Lannamer streets and around the curves required to get …

    Sorry so late, guys!  Not sure what happened to brain Enrie was skidding toward the open trap-door, flailing for purchase. A flash of movement caught her eye and a moment later, three hands caught her – wrist, shoulder, and ankle. Enrie was yanked to a stop a hands-width from the …

    Their head of school might being blackmailed, but Enrie found herself worrying more about what to pack.  “I don’t have anything,” she complained to her roommates, who were sleepy and not inclined to help.  “I didn’t bring anything…” She was being very vague about where she was going, not because she …

    October 3, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Who do we take it to? turned out to be a question of some contention.  The six of them collected had at least twelve ideas of people they could take their information to, ranging from the Emperor himself to regional Governors all the way down to the upperclassmen in any …

    “…and then Pieped suggested they could run interference.  Which is probably why there’s this very polite wall of Estyaa House colors by the doorway.  I don’t think Lady Ilonilarrona’s done with us.”  Enrie spared a glance for the nicely-composed line of purple, cyan-teal, & bright red by the main entrance, …

    “All right” Riensin leaned forward.  “So you have a puzzle piece.  We need to check in Instructor… P’s office.  You found things that were of the right era there, right?” “Yes, but someone else has already ransacked his office.”  Enrie wrinkled her nose. “Do you think he noticed?” “…that’s a …

    Instructor Kaasmasik was missing from class again. Still, Enrie turned in her paper, looking Instructor Rezhtareza in the eye as she explained, “I was told to do this paper, ma’am.” “Indeed? Somehow I’m not surprised. Well, perhaps it will count as extra credit.” The instructor wasn’t smirking — wasn’t smiling at …

    Ulunumani didn’t approach them during breakfast; less surprisingly, neither did any annoyed Cevati Bitrani.  In an additional note so unsurprising as to be on par with the sun coming up in the morning, neither did Gianci. Kekla and Tesdes showed up late, just as the rest of them were finishing …

    After Chapter 34A “The problem is, I don’t really have a plan for this part,” Enrie admitted.  They were sitting over an early breakfast — it appeared her teammates couldn’t sleep any more than she could. “I have sort of… bits and pieces of a plan.  Go look here, go look …

    Lady Ilonilarrona narrowed her eyes.  Enrie smiled, although she was beginning to feel as if her lips were made of stone.  Saydrie and Taikie moved forward a step on either side of her. “You really don’t know, do you?  You’re stupider than I thought, and that little heel was lying …

    Kekdela took in Taikie’s explanation while Enrie tried not to look as embarrassed as she felt.  They had been, a little.  She just hadn’t… “Teasing you about Riensin, hrrm?  I told you you were laying it on way too thick.”  She delivered the last to Riensin, with a roll of …

    Enrie frowned at Lovdyo.  “Who…” “Please don’t,” he whispered.  “It’ll just make it worse.  Just… I’m sorry.  I didn’t mean to get you in trouble.” He cut a pathetic figure, looking up at her through long black lashes.  His braids were a mess, and his uniform was buttoned crookedly. Enrie …

    Olisama looked up at Piadro.  Piadro looked down at Olisama.  It was the ridiculous royal that broke first, surprising Enrie – and probably everyone else in this discussion group.  “I suppose my parents would be irked if I caused trouble with the enclaves in my first year of school.” Piadro chuckled, …

    Piadro barely spared Falivia a glance.  He took another step towards Olisama, who had raised her chin and was very clearly about to start in on another rant of one sort or another. Enrie looked at the Bitrani woman.  They could let this go, or… “Clearly,” Falivia continued, “every group, …

    Olisama was staring at Enrie with obvious rage and, more than rage, confusion.  “Do you honestly not care what you’ve done?” “I care.” Enrie lifted her chin and glared at her cousin.  “I plan on graduating Edally Academy on merit.  I know what happens to cheaters in the royalty, and …

    They had made it only a few more feet out of the classroom before Riensin, Tesdes, and Kekdela caught out with them.  “What do you think happened?  Do you think it’s something about the,” Riensin dropped his voice to a whisper, “cheating thing?” “What do they do to Instructors who …
