  1. Chapter 19C: And the Soup is Made Inedible

    4

    January 25, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Kekdela was perched in front of Enrie. Of all the people who had been pushing themselves into Enrie’s face and space in the last day, she was certainly being the most polite. “What do you worry about?” “And what was – what was her name? Olisama – talking about?” Taikie …

    Taikie and Saydrie held their tongues until they were all away from Enrie’s relatives, until they’d sat down at their table.  Then, however, as if it had been pressing against her like steam building up behind a valve, Taikie leaned forward and hissed at Enrie. “What did she mean, you …

    “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 …

    “Instructor Dainanan!”  Riensin stepped out of the doorway into the hallway and caught their Textiles Instructor by the arm.  “I was hoping to catch you.  I have a question about the Oonezhoonet-Era embroidery you were discussing yesterday in class.” “Oh?”  Instructor Dainanan was easily flattered; it was one of the …

    Enrie leaned forward, resisting the urge to snatch the papers out of Taikie’s hands. “What is it?” “Well, I’m still working on it – wait, Enrie, you speak seven languages, right?  You said you knew some of the obscure dialects?” “Here.”  She positioned herself so she could look over Taikie’s …

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

    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 …

    October 26, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    “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 …

    October 7, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    “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 …

    September 16, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Silence reigned at their table for a minute. Enrie did her best to catalogue everyone’s reactions, but she was having a hard time dealing with her own. It seemed like a lovely idea, but it seemed like a lovely idea that was doomed to fail. That was not how Enrie …

    Enrie rolled her eyes at Riensin. “I’m feeling fine. I didn’t sleep all that well last night; I was up working on this paper Pelnyen gave us.” “I thought it was only a couple pages.” He wrinkled his nose. “That shouldn’t take hours, should it? The last time he did …

    Taikie and Saydrie looked far more awake than Enrie felt. They were already chatting when Enrie got to breakfast, leaning over something on the table and ignoring their food. Enrie, watching them from across the table, felt a stab of isolation. She shouldn’t have stayed up so late. She shouldn’t …

  14. Chapter Nineteen – Peace and War Are Not Opposites, Any More than Sitting and Riding Are

    4

    January 1, 2015 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    The shoveling, it seemed, would never be done. And after three days, it seemed as if the stink of the stables would never leave them, either. It might have been in their heads: they weren’t lacking for people sitting near them at meals, at least, and even people going out …

    “Sit down, Pupil Tairiekie.” At the Monitor’s harsh tone, Tairiekie deflated back into her seat with a thump. She looked down at her folded hands, trying very hard to be good. They were here to be punished, after all. “Yes, you are correct. You are to become close with your …

    October 22, 2014 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    “I wonder why it’s called Maiku Hall1.” Riensin had only known his three-team for a few days but he’d already learned that getting her to talk about things she liked was the easiest way to get Kekdela to pay attention to him, and getting Taztyag to talk at all was useful – …

    “Hi, Saydrie.” “You got the House Monitor to come find me?” She could hear the mortification in Saydrie’s voice even before Libkazaari moved out of the way. Once the House Monitor had cleared the way, she could see the cupola better – and Saydrie’s horrified face. “Not exactly.” She wanted …

    September 8, 2014 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    “Do you think the classes are going to be hard?” By prearrangement, Saydrie, Enrie, and Tairiekie had met up in Dienvyes Hall for breakfast before heading off to the Biology and Medicine Hall for their first class of the day. The weather was still warm and their new uniforms were …
