  1. Chapter 59A: An Alarming Call

    2

    January 23, 2017 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    They’d been back at school for two weeks.  Enrie was entirely caught up on all her classes, and Taikie was back into reading ahead by at least a week.  Their Instructors had either forgiven them, or, in the case of those more nosy than fretful about academics, had stopped asking …

      “Hello there.  It has been a while, hasn’t it?  Almost an eon.”  Gianci had spent almost all of his time in the days since they returned placating his teammates and roommates, all of whom had been irked with him.  Enrie had only seen him in passing in the lounge …

    It felt strange to be back in school.  Their Instructors had all been told — well, something, at least — by House Monitor Libkazaarie — which meant that Instructor Pelnyen looked at them sideways but everyone else seemed to accept their absence with decent grace.   There were projects to …

  4. Holiday Story: Tienaabaa’s Festival

    December 30, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Happy Tienaabaa’s festival to all!  May it find you motivated to creativity and to thought.  If you are wondering, Bitrani and Calenyena spell Tienaabaa’s name differently (Tienebrah); the Bitrani pronounce that initial T-i-e-n as tee-en while the Calenyena say “Tie”. ❄️ It was nearly time for the festival, and the snow had already …

    Enrie did not know her cousin all that well, but she thought the woman sounded faintly amused. Saydrie’s cheeks went red and blotchy and he bowed again, jerky this time.  “No, Honored One.  If anything,” he cleared his throat and managed a weak smile, “simply pointing out a specifically Bitrani …

    Enrie winced.  Her friends were not actually helping her case, as much as they might think they were. “It was…” She cleared her throat.  “They did destroy or remove several books, but they were stopped in their efforts by two things: some of the information had embedded aether.  It made …

  7. Chapter 52c – When our Leaders Wore Red & Were Competent

    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 …

    Enrie turned to look at Gianci.  Everyone else, she noticed, was doing the same.   He cleared his throat again.  He was looking over their heads, not at them. “Sometimes they tell people they can’t go back to the enclaves.  Banish them.  Some people leave on their own, sure, but …

    The cart wasn’t chasing them anymore.  A peek around the edge of the wagon showed it tangled and sideways on the side of the road, their goats all happily eating feed or fighting with the harness, trying to get to the food.  Three of the people from the wagon were …

    November 22, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    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 …

    Enrie lifted her chin and met the Head of her Academy’s gaze without flinching.  “The original is safe, Head Wiltemika.  I didn’t dare have it anywhere it could be found while Lirnilalie and Ilonilarrona  were snooping around, talking about destroying it all.” Wiltemika’s chuckle now had a bit of an …

    “Well.”  Wiltemika sank down into a chair and held her head in her hands.  “May they be truly gone and not simply waiting for the right time to plague us again.” “Head Wiltemika,” Libkazaari protested.  “What is going on?” “With any luck, the evidence I have previously put forward against …

    “Now that that little travelling curiosity show is over,” Lirnilalie muttered, “we can get back to business.  My papers–” “As I told you already,” LIbkazaari interrupted, “your papers aren’t here.  The only papers that are here belong to the Students here and to the school.” “Then you won’t mind if …

    Enrie swallowed around a dry throat and watched the scene unfold.  Libkazaari stood up, watching Lirnilalie levelly. The woman, in turn, raised one eyebrow in clear doubt.  “I’ve never heard of a school project that led to students hiding, running away from adults and stealing things from rooms.” “Well as …

  16. Chapter 46A: No Kissing, Mostly Shouting

    October 12, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Was this good news?  It was pleasant to hear that Libkazaari didn’t like Lirinlalie, and yet… “House Monitor,” she said carefully, “I am concerned that, if Lirnilalie is being treated as royalty, if we reveal these papers here, there will be no pleasant result and a great deal of trouble.” …

    “We have some ideas about what it could mean,” Enrie offered. “The fact is, it’s not signed, and that’s huge.  And it doesn’t show up in normal history books, but I found references to it in at least one aether-embedded book in the treaties section.”  That one, she’d brought the …

    Enrie stared at House Monitor Libkazaari’s door. She looked at her friends.  She swallowed around the bile in her throat and looked back at the door. “I can hear you out there.  Unless you’re here to discuss the merits of saddle-throwing positions, come in.” Enrie’s cheeks flushed and she ducked …

    They were really doing it.  They were carrying everything they had found, and they were taking it to an adult.  Enrie swallowed around a lump in her throat. “There are so many ways that this could go wrong,” she whispered.  They’d picked the route to the House Monitor’s office least …

  20. Chapter 44C: Consensus

    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 …
