  1. Chapter 44a: your jacket is loud…

    1

    September 27, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Enrie made it through the rest of their textiles class by the skin of her teeth, paying far more attention to the conversation of embedded aether than she ever had before. If they could embed it in clothing… oh, and she knew they could put it in text already, there …

    “Class,” Enrie agreed.  She took Saydrie’s offered hand, bowed to both women much as he had, and waited the half-second for Taikie to do the same before they strolled out of there. Holding Saydrie’s hand let her control the pace to that stroll; she was pretty sure if she hadn’t …

  3. Chapter 43A: Studies and Distractions

    September 16, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    The day of classes seemed to stretch on interminably.  Once they reached the end, Enrie could see what Riensin had found. She could see what else they had to do.  She could figure out who they were supposed to take this to. But first she had to get through Biology …

    “…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, …

    They took all of their bits and pieces to a quiet lab in the back of the Philosophy classroom building.  There, in a room lit with the new safety lamps, they laid out everything they’d found so far, pages and notes.  Saydrie pulled out some fresh paper and a pen …

  6. Chapter 40C: Dangerous Reading

    August 26, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    They found Gianci and Taikie in the history section, holding an old tome whose bindings had crumbled with age, hidden off behind a pole in a far corner  near the books on Empress Otyeriotanerio .  The book itself was Bitrani Writings on the Early Wars, but, between two maps of …

  7. Chapter 40b: Chasing Honor and Breadcrumbs

    2

    August 24, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Enrie and Saydrie read angry paragraph after angry paragraph.  The scribe had started out describing things as an extended metaphor, but he kept falling into screeds about the failure of the world in the “modern era.” He was convinced that something had happened to the Bitrani people that had led …

  8. Chapter 40a: Findings

    August 23, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Enrie didn’t wait until Gianci and Taiki were gone before she started searching the shelves.  She’d been over many of these books before, but with Gianci’s new lullaby, they had a new direction to go in. Saydrie was muttering to himself as he flipped through books.  After a minute, he …

  9. Chapter 37B: Trouble Comes Finding You

    July 26, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Finding Riensin was harder than she’d hoped it would be.  He wasn’t in the dining hall, he wasn’t readily visible in the library, and he wasn’t in his dorm’s common room or in his room, although his roommates gave Enrie and Taikie quite the look — before they noticed Saydrie standing …

    July 15, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Due to a *cough* scheduling error, you get two chapters today.  Please make sure you’ve read Chapter 36B first “So,” Saydrie cleared his throat.  “Sorry about that, Stable-Master Korten.  I’m not sure…” “Your friend there, that’s not an entirely unreasonable reaction.  Lirnilalie is not the sort of person you want to …

    “You three?”  Stable-master Korten smiled at them as they slipped in through the far entrance to the stable.  “And you brought friends.  I’m not going to need to clear out another stall, am I?” “Aren’t things getting a little crowded already?”  Enrie flashed him a bright smile, hoping he knew …

  12. Chapter 36A: Keep Moving

    July 11, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Ulunumani had fled, flinging imprecations.  Enrie wanted to feel bad about that — and in some sense, she supposed she did. Ledryie was right; she was far too casual about making enemies.  At least Taikie’d made her first enemy when he tried to kill her; Enrie seemed to make them when she …

    “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 …

    June 22, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Previous to Chapter 34A… Kekdela and Tesdes were waiting just inside the entrance to the library when Enrie, Saydrie, and Taikie got there. Kekla looked as if she was about ready to bounce out of her uniform, while Tesdes looked — well, the same as Tesdes normally looked, which was …

    “She has a plan?”’  Taikie very nearly waited until they were out of earshot of the house Monitor’s office.  “Do you think…  Do you think it will be a good plan?  I mean, last time, we ended up with Instructor Kaasmasik back teaching classes, and Instructor Pelnyen is still teaching…” …

    House Monitor Libkazaari’s office was open and, thankfully, there was nobody there except the House Monitor.  Enrie knocked on the open door and waited until Libkazaari looked up. The frown that crossed Libkazaari’s face made Enrie worry.  “Enerenarie, Tairiekie, Saydrie.  I believe I should give the three of you seats …

    June 10, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    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 …
